Wednenday Morning, September 14,1888,
TUE bixestaloat. tient —The light in the
heavens on Sunday night is noted in all diree•
thins. As we looked toward the sky, between
the hours of 9 and 10 and 11, the light exceed.
ed in splendor and variety of coloring any thing
of the kind our eyes ever witnessed. The old
poets represented Aurora as rising in a chariot
from the eeban dropping the gentle dew from
her rosy fingers.; but that was the morning
twilight. The Visible streams of Auroral light

borealis; they were more iu the range of east
and west than in the north. The light appeared
in streuna, sometimes of a pure milky white.
ness and sometimes of a light crimson. They
ascended towards the zenith from faint lines
and inereeeed to broad streaks of light, culmi•
noting in a beautiful crown or panoply from
which a multitude of brilliant and over•chang.
ing rays shot down towards the horizon. The
white and rose-red waves of light as they swept
to and from the corona were beautiful be•
yond description, and a friend nearby on, while
looking to the zenith with the whole heavens
and earth lighted up at a greater brilliancy
than is afforded by the full moon, said that it
was like resting beneath. the wings of the Al
mighty. The crown above, indeed, seemed
like a throne of silver, purple and crimson,
hung and spread out with curtains or wings of
dazzling bounty. Never did the heavens seem
to be more the work of the Creator, nor the sub.
limest work of art sink in comparison so fur
beneath the wonderous skill and power of the
great Architect of the heavens. The tremu
lous motion of moving light, which the inhahi•
tants of the Shetland Islands call "the merry
dancers," was less apparent than usual, but in
place of it came those full, bright, changing,
but more steady streams of light, which gave
an intense brilliancy to the whole heavens--

some of our merchants and tradesmen, the ad•
