Some surprise was expressed ai. the fact of her not

The Oltmpia. In the San Francisco Chronicle
of tbe 20th inst. this steamer is styled '-Another

fortunate accident which caused her return to port

very serious and disgraceful affair. The fact is
that tbe Olympia is as sate and staunch a steamer
as can be lound ia this ocean. She is only two
years old, and was, until recently, run as au oppo
sition boat, since which she was bired ta lay up at
so much per month. A card from the passengers
who came down in her, headed by Judge Hart well,
appears elsewhere in our columns, and will un

Chicago, Aug. 12. Tbe St. - Petersburg!! Tim
of a recent date publishes tbe result of joint obser
vations by the Swiss astronomer, Plafttamour, and
tbe ltusian Professor Bockb, of a comet which ap-
Eears to have been observed by tbem separately,
ut nearly simultaneously, tbe one at Geneva and
the other at St. Petersburgb. Plantamour went to
St Petersburg!! to joint Bockb in an observation.
Tbe Gazette says that Plantamour was right when
he asserted that the orbit of bis comet crossed the
earth in such a way as to necessitate a collision of
the two bodies. Bockh and Plantamour state there
is no reason to disbelieve that the orbit of tbe comet
is strictly a parabola, and that fh passing on toward
the sun the new and terrible visitor to tbe solar sys
tem will Rmite tho earth on August 12th, witb what
result, however, it ia impossible to foretell. When
first observed the comet was far beyond tho most
distant point reached by Neptune. Subsequent ob
servations show that it is moving with a velocity
of about nineteen miles a second, about tbe rate the
earth moves in its orbit, and that early in August
it will be visible to the naked eye as a small patch
of light 12 degrees west of tbe polar star. It witl
become more distinctly visible, and tbe tail will be
seen divided into three parts. Thenceforward, un
til the collision takes place, it will increase in ap
parent size and splendor until its light shall fill the
entire heavens, rendering tbe stars, tbe moon and
even tbe sun invisible. Aa to tbe exact moment of
contact, there is a disagreement between the result
arrived at by tbe astronomers Bockh giving It
August l?th, at 20 minutes to 4 r. M.. Greenwich
time, while Plantamour places it at half past 6 r.
v.. a difference of two bours and liny iiliutes.
