accounts! of the great event which has
been carefully observed by so many as

Tho transit was witnessed at a largo

town, New Zealand, wero a great suc
cess, and that 237 photographs wero
made of tho first contact. Tills with
other observations at remote points pro.
vlously announced, secures data for the
most valimblo calculations. The fol
lowing account of the obseivations at
the Hawaiian Islands by the British
party, taken from tho Honolulu Com
mercial Advertiser, will be read with
great interest, oven by tho unscientific:
At a few minutes past 3 o'clock, you
could see everywhere in tho streets
faces looking upward toward tho sun,
with a piece of shaded glass in hand to
screen his fierco rays from man's weak,
yet ambitious, searching eyes. A minute
or two elapsed, and no- chango in the
dusky, red ball above. Another minu
te gazing upward, and still no spot flecks
the face of the sombre, rubescent orb.
Ha 1" ala la 1" there it 14, cries one

and now we begin to see, a little to the
right of tho top or vortex of the sun, a
slight dent or notch; and as wo gaze on,
the dent or epotetilaraes, advances with
in the border of the disc; aud as the
clearly-defined, dark macula upon the
ruddy plain is now distinctly seen by
every eye, an enthusiastic natlvo says,
"Surely they who behold this were pro
phets, and Lono was a prophet."
But we must turn to where tho real
star rophets wero at work, close to
the beach, In the grounds known as

In astronomical huts planned and con

struments are erected on Kol'd, deep
laid bases of masonry, we find tho In
defatigable Chief, Capt, Tupman, ga

Nichol and Lieut. Noble, are watching

What a moment, and what a sense of
responsibility for three throughtful,
studious men, who have to deal with a
great crisis In a fraction of a second,
while tho audience of an enlightened,
expectant world is sympathetically
present! Faithfully tho heavenly trav
eler comes, as first foretold by Helper,
and the Chief observes the first exter
nal contact of disc and dise at 3h. 7m.
Is., aud Lieut. Noble at 3li. 7m. 3., ao
cording to local mean eolar time. Tho
agreement Is singular, but must bo re
guarded as purely accidental. But this
Is not the crisis of greatest moment; it
Is when the perfect rounded orb of the
planet is within the sun, and the edge
of its dlso at the. moment of leaving the
inner circle of the luminary indicates
tho Internal contact, the most Interest
ing point to bo observed In all the tran
As the body of tho planet was In
denting the sun's rim, and advancing
on toward immersion within its body,
tho Chief, who was not watching
through a micrometer, saw thecompleto
disc of Yenus defined about thirty sec
onds before the actual internal contact
was determined, and for a while he im
agined he had missed the critical phase
of the phenomenon; but Its revelation
of the complete circle of the planet, be
foro actual Internal contact had taken
place, was owing to the effulgence of
the corona or outer flame waves of the
sun, which Illuminated the whole sur
face ot Venus some time before com
plete immerslona phase of tbe phenol
menon never observed before, and its
detection on this occasion Is due to Iho
optical perfection of the telescopic In
struments employed. Lieut. Noble
could distinguish the complete dlso of
Venus fully five minutes before Inter
nal contact: and Mr. Johnson, observ
ing at Waluiea, on the Island of Knunl, -t-aw
the complete dUe no e tli.tn IS
minutes hefuru the complete entrance
of the planet.
This luminous presentation of. tho
full round body of Venus, when still
only partially ncrojs tlin sun's circle'
was calculated to dazzlo and decclvo
our astronomers, but llko faithful watch
ers they neglected not ono moment's
observation, nnd ns they scrutinized
tho advancing planet they discerned
approximately tho phase ot Internal
contact, which tho Chief recorded at
3li., 33m., 53.7s., and Lieut. Noble ot
Ha! now wo tako breath. Tho criti
cal phase is passed and recorded, and
now Jewels of fact nro added to the
mighty accumulating treasury of hu
man knowledge. We liaye delighted In
the poesy of fancy, but here Is the very
poetry of figures to enchatit and elevate
tho mind. We put our finger on tho
stars as wo do upon our pocket time
pieces. Little pigmy man sits in the
