First Paragraph: An eclipse of the moon, especially a total one, is sufficiently rare to lose none of its interest at each recurrence. A clear sky and a seasonable hour add not a little to the enjoyment of the spectacle, and will arrest the attention of even the most indifferent. Such a treat is in store for our readers on the night of October 10, of this year. The hours are perhaps rather late for our friends in the east, but our western ones will surely not complain. At all events we must take the eclipse as it will actually before the astronomer that predicts it is as helpless to change the hour of its occurrence, as the weather prophet is to bring on sunshine or rain.
