San Fhancisco, January 10, 1S50.
Catt. B. Biiowx .' 1 trike this opportunity to inform
you that wj used 'hose Bomb Lances we bought of you, and
found them to be of great benefit in capturing whales amongst
The til st wh ile that we used the "Bomb Lanee on was kilted
in the following manru i . The boat went alongside of the whale
and the boat-steerer iked a Bomb into him and then fastened to
him with a gig ir jn : th : Bomb was heard to explode, and the
whale did not blow aft-T the Bomb exploded. The abwe-men-tioned
whale was in the and it is our opinion that we should
not have got that .haie and many others that we did get, if it
h id not been far ar Bomb Lances, and we fully recommend

Cait. Ror.KitT r.p.o'.vx .1 dtar .Sir: I used your Bomb
Lances in taking ;i whale, north, the past season, which, made
250 bbls. of oil. We neer could have taken him without said
Lances, as our boats could not get near enough to use the com
mon hand lance.
Yours Bespeetl fully.

Capt. KonhUT Brown Dear Sir : I take this opportunity
to inform you that 1 us -d your Bomb';, on the voyage in the ship
fraI, and found th-m effective in taking whales, and would
recommend them to all whalemen, and especially around the I .
I also used the harpoon and got mo.-t of the whales by your

The Comet of 185T.
We finl in the Sacramento Union a translation of
an article from La Prcsc of Paris ujm tliis subject.
It is as follows:
It is truly lamentable to see the excitement pro
duced by the indiscretion of journal which an
nounced as the prediction of n. German astronomer
the destruction of the world by a c .met, on the loth
of June. This ridiculous news repeated by echoes
great and .snail, has spread o ei l'urope with amazing
rapidity, it is now the universal topic of conversa
tion in every class of society. Wl.at is there not to
speak of truth, but of probability in this predic
tion relative to the comet said to i o expected on the
Kith of June? Nothing absolutely nothing. In
the first place, what is the bp me of the German as
tronomer who has undertaken to warn the world of
its premature end ? No one was able to cite the name,
although latterly something has leaked out on this
subject. It now appears that the prophet of evil is
But Matthew Lanisberg is neither a German nor
an astronomer, lie is a Height i and a canon of Liege.
His sole title to refutation is having compiled the
first Liege Almanac. More-v- or, what is this pre
dicted comet? Is it something new, or is it a comet
already known, of which they foretell the return ? If
it is a new comet, we know well that an unknown
comet cannot be predicted; for to announce before
hand the appiration of such a body it is necessary to
be a true prophet. If the pvodiet.'U relates only to
a comet previously observed, the orbit of which is
known, let them give us the e'ements of this wander
ing star, let them produce its progress day by day,
and let them publish the calculation which demon
strates the possibility of its collision with the earth.
From the moment that it becomes a question of a
comet known to professed astronomers, it is to those
astronomers and their observations that we are to
look for the oracie. But all the observatories are
silent, and they tire silent because they have the cer
titude that there exists no coret at all menacing the
earth and destined to strike on the loth of June, this
An inlluential journal has unwisely entertained its
readers, in the midst of these chimerical terrors, with
an account of the comet of lLi'l-l, which so much
alarmed the Emperor Charles V. when it appeared
in lf5G. But this comet nceoiui -Fished its revolution
in '22 yeaivs; it was, therefore, in lblb that it should
have shown it.-elf in the heavens; but it was nowhere
perceived at that period, l'lancrary perturbations
may have, without doubt, retarded it in its course, s
that its apparition may yet be expected, if indeed, it
did not, in 1818, arrive at its pcrihclio i invisible to
us a circumstance that happens sometimes to this
kind of stars, which atmospheric accidents or perma
nent clouds hinder us from observing when they
should otherwise be accessible to our sight. Let us
admit, nevertheless, that the comet of Charles V. is
j et to appear.
Never, certainly, has any astronomer thought of
making it a cause of alarm to t.ie inhabitants of our
globe. The inclination of its orbit on the ecliptic is
more than VA) degrees; it is, then, far from following
the same track as the earth. Moreover, many as
tronomers Mr. Hind among!; others have recently
traced the ephemerides of the comet; they could,
then, tell us exactly in what point of space, and
at what distance from the earth this comet ought
to be found 011 the Kith of June, 18"7. But to sisk
them such questions would to give an air of seri
ousness to a ridiculous prediction. With respect to
the question so often discussed as to the impossibility
of a concussion between a comet and the earth, we
cannot do better than quote from ISAstronomie
Populaire of Arago, which gives all that can with
reason be advanced on the sulject. Arago has cal
culated the chances which exist of the shock of a
comet against the earth in considering separately the
j concussion with the nucleus of the comet, ami that
which would result from contact with the lluid mass
which surrounds or follows it, commonly known as
'Tor a shock by the nucleus of a comet," says
Arago, " which might destroy the earth, wc have
found one likely chance for JS1,0.) j,0;)O of unlikely
chances. For a contact with the tail of a comet the
chances are 10 to in 2l,o0.,000. Admitting for
a moment that the nucleus of comets striking the
earth would annihilate the human species, the danger
of death which would result to each irdividual front
the apparition of an unknown conitt would be exactly
equal to the chances he would run if in an urn he
had but one white ball in a total of 81,000,000 balls,
and his condemnation to death W0.1M be the inevita
ble consequence of his drawing this white ball at the
fir?t draw. JO very man who makes use of his senses
must laugh at a danger so remot."
Although comets occupy an immense space in the
heavens, surpassing millions of leagues, yet, by rea
son of the absence of atmosphere m those regions,
permitting fluids to be infinitely rarified, the matter
of these bodies is reduced to the must feeble propor
tions. Laplace says, on this subject: "Although the
dimensions of the tails of comets be myriads of miles,
3-et the3T do not sensibly affect the light of stars seen
through them. They are, then, of an extreme rarity,
and theij mass is probably inferior to that of the
smallest mountains on earth. They cannot, then, by
their contact with the earth, produce any sensible ef
fect, and it is probable that they have frequently en
veloped the earth without being perceived." It is
this which explains how many comets have passed in
proximity to certain planets without producing the
least physical influence.
Delambre tells us that the comet of 1770 paiscd be
tween Jupiter ami his satellites without causing any
sensible perturbation. Thus the comets, even to as
tronomers, are but objects of curiosity. Sir John
Ilerschcl goes still further, and sa3s in express terms
that " the tail of a large comet, as fir as we can form
any idea of it, is composed of a fw pounds of matter,
and perhaps only of a few ounces." What have we,
then, to fear from the shock from the body of a mass
so insignificant ? We will odd, in conclusion, that
M. Babinet, one of the greatest authorities of the age
in physical astronomy, has gone so far as to say,
" the earth, in coming into collision with a comet,
would be no more affected in its .stability than would
a railway train coming in collision with a fly."
The author of the article in the influential journal
to which we have alluded, has not Lesitatcd to gave a
lesson to M. Babinet on this subject, in reminding
him that u matter even impalpable a: a mist or vapor,
when moving with immense velocity, is capable of
producing the most destructive effects. The anony
mous author of this article forgets that comets are
not endowed with much rapidity of motion, except
when very near the sun; at a distance from the sun
equal to that from the earth, they have already lost
all their velocity at a still greater distance, they are
comparatively motionless; and in any ease, as M. le
Verrier has very well observed, the comets are part
of our solar system, and the Creator of the universe
has taken into account their mass and their move
ments in establishing the laws of our planetary sys
tem laws which have been ti e Admiration of all
great geniuses who have unveiled and comprehended
" The Horse: its Varieties. By Ike Partington.
The horse is a quadruped with four legs two be
hind and two before. He lias a tail, which grows to
the hind part of his body, that nature has furnished,
with which to drive away the flies. His head is sitl
uated on the other end, opposite the tail, and is used
principally to fasten a bridle to him by, and to put
into a basket to eat oats with.
Horses are very useful animals, and pecme couldn't
get along very well without them 'specially truck
men and omnibus drivers, who don't seem h.C -rntn.
ful enough because they've got 'em. They areery
convenient animals in the country, in vacation time,
and go very fast through the country roads, when
the boys stick pins into thera, a specie.! of crutlty that
I won't encourage.
Horses are generally covered with re-I hair, though
some are white, and others grev and black. Nobody
ever saw a blue horse, which 13 considered very
strange by eminent naturalists.
The horse is quite an intelligent animal, and can
sleep standing up, which is verycotn enient, 'specially
where there is a crowd aud it is difficult to lay.
There are a great variety of horse? fast horses
clothes horses- horse mackerel saw horses and horse
tiiei hois chestnuts and horse radish. The clothe
horse is a very quiet animal to have around the
house, and is never known to kick, though very apt
to make a row when it is capsized. The same may
be said of the saw horse, which will stand without

onlvthat they swim in the water, and are a rare
species of the fish tribe. Horse chestnuts are a fino
thing to pelt the girls with, and horse radish is a
mighty smart horse, but bad to have standing around
where there's anv children.
The horse is found in all countries, principally m
livery stables, where they can be hired by the mile,
and are considered by them as can get money, a
great luxury, 'specially in sleighing season. In South
America they grow wild, and Indians catch them
with nooses, "that they throw over the horse's head,
which must be thought by the horses a great noosance.
Bribham Youxo ani Mormon ism. The lecture of
John Hvde, Jr., on Brigham Young and Salt Lake
City at'Dr. Lacy's Church, last evening, was numer
ously amended. After some general remarks upon
the interest or curiosity felt by people in remarkable

The lake he described as 4,1 W0 feet above the level oi
the sea, 70 miles long and CO broad, and so salt that
three gallons of it boiled down would deposit one of
salt. He said that a negro bathing in it, would come
out perfectly wliite with an incrustation of salt. He
mentioned that myriads of grasshoppers which had
been blown into it, had been thrown upon the shore
perfectly imbedded and preserved in crystals of salt.
The specific gravity of the water was so great that
the human body could not sink, and suicides by
drowning in it were impossible.
Salt Lake City contains six square miles enclosed
with a wall. All kinds of manufactures are carried
on and all kinds of industry that can conduce to cou
fort and wealth are prosecuted there. Fifty thousand
people, the most industrious in the world lived in that
city, shut out from the world, believing themselves
persecuted by the world, aud ruled with a despotic
power by Brigham Young, the Prophet. Him the
lecturer described as a tall, stately, well-dressed, po
lite aud shrewd man. Shrewdness and strength of
mind were Brigham's distinguishing characteristics.
He had a faculty of governing and leading weaker
men, and of getting rid of stronger and more danger
ous ones by sending them on missions to preach the
Mormon doctrine to the heathen. Brigham is over
50 years of age, and seems to be so worn down by
his godly labors that his stomach can bear nothing
stronger than bread and milk. He says the Mis
ourians spoiled his appetite, a! that " Uncle Sam,
the old cuss," gave him great trouble. When asked
whether he did not fear the fate of Joe Smith, he an
swered that the day of sacrifice was over: that he
always wore his revolvers, and as for killing him,
that could not be done " no! by the Eternal, no!"
The lecturer gave a number of the prophet's vulgar
and impious, but favorite modes of expression, and
expanded on his claims to infallibility, and how
Brother Kimball, the lick-spittle, had preached that
a man's soul was ns safe in Brigham's hands as in
those of the Almighty. The lecturer described the
prophet's wives and establishment, ami the great
immorality and indecency of the system in which so
many people lived, and so many children were being
educated! He finally came to the means to stop the
progress of Mormonism, and maintained that it could
only be done by opening the great avenues of travel
through the middle of the continent, and allowing the
flood of civilization and enlightenment to flow through
that benighted country. Persecution and physical
force could never overcome Mormonism; it was a
moral evil, which a moral remc ly alone would bo
able to overcome. Thousands of Mormons were ready,
r.s soon as fitting opportunities should present, to
leave Utah and renounce their errors; but they were
shut up in their mountains, and nursed their miatua
tion because they had no hope in anything else.
The Pacific railroad would carry oil and disperse the
b id humors of this social gangrene. The Mormons
would never go to civilization; civilization would have
to xo to them.
Mr. Hyde gave notice that he had devoted his life
to waging war against Mormonism; that he purposed
going on to Washington to lay his knowledge and
views before Congress and the American people, and
then going to England, his native country, and
laboring to stop the proselytism in its favor. The
doctrines of Mormonism are so silly and absurd that
a serious attempt to argue against or confute them

can wish success to Mr. Hyde in his mission. The
Mormon superstition, as lie truly says, commends
itself to the depravity of many human hearts, and if
he can arrest its progress by peaceful means, we can
well wish him God speed S. F. Bulletin.
High Life " in N. Y Married Her Father's
Coachman. -The world above Bleecker " was star-
I tied from its propriety the other day by the clandcs
: tine marriage of a young lady of fashion and wealth
! to her father's coachman. The two susceptible maiden
j was Miss Mary Ann (or Marianna Petronilia) Boker,
j daughter of a well-known merchant in Front Street,
and John Dean is thu name of the squire of low de
gree. He is an Irishman, with a brogue, and a head
slightly reddish, but not bad looking. His education
has been sadly neglected. Miss Boker, that was, is
accounted handsome, and she has a fortune in her
own right which rumor rates all the way from $20,
000 to 8100,000.
The attachment between Miss Mary Ann and John
has been (he says) of long duration. She frequently
took airings alone and John's stalwart figure before
heron the driving box of her "Cerline" at first
divided her attention with the crowd of her external
things, and at length filled her eye to the exclusion
of everything else. ("Oh Opportunity, thy guilt is
great!") After "kapping her company," as John
says, for a year or more, the Boker family appear to
have thought that Miss MaryTAnn was unreasonably
fond of taking airings and some retraint was laid
upon h?r movements; but John was not discharged.
Finally, the young lady slipped out of the house one
day and occompanied her liveried swaim to the house
of tiie Rev. Dr. Hatfield who united them.
As soon a3 the family were apprised of this catas
trophe, Miss Mary Ann was locked up in a back room
in the fourth story and put upon low diet, and her

Mary Ann and her fortune was discharged! He
applied, however, for a writ, of hebcus corpus, but the
Boker3 on their side obtained an injunction super
ceding the execution of the writ, and an order from
the Supreme Court appointing Mr. Boker the guardian
of his daughter for the purpose of commencing a suit
to annul the marriage on the plea of her insainty.
Wednesday, however, the family made an attempt to
put the young lady, under thokcare of her mother, on
board the Persia, about to sail for Europe; but she
succeeded in sending information to John, and the
house 1C5 West Twenty-second street, was carefully
guarded day and night by the police. In consequence
of this attempt, the Supreme Court granted a new
writ of hebeas corpus. An immense crowd assembled
round the building anxious to see the bride. One or
two carriages containing ladies were stopped, and the
occupants found great difficulty in getting through
the press; they were subjected to the most impertineut
scrutiny. In the meanwhile, "Mrs. Dean" had been
privately taken into the Court room. The case, how
ever, wa3 adjourn.'xl till Monday.
A Good Language. Mr. Schoolcraft says a marked
peculiarity of the Algonquin, the most cultivated of
the Indian languages, is, that there are no oaths in

Deity being considered too sacred to be used at
