THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 4.
A Whopper.?A phenomenon unparal?
leled in the annals of astronomical science
occurred at Clayton, Ga., one day last wees,
which, from the light it throws upon the
hitherto open question of the habitability of
the other planets will prove of great value
to scientists. At 7:45 o'clock p.m., there
fell near that town a spherical metal ball on
the surface of which appear graven charac?
ters which give conclusive evidence of its
having been molded by intelligent hands.
Dr. Beyers, in whose possession it now is,
said this evening:
"I was returning from a patient's house,
situated some seven miles from the town,
where I had spent the latter part of the af?
ternoon. I was ascending a long hill, when
my horse suddenly picked up his ears, and,
on glancing ahead, my eyes were dazzled by
a brilliant white flash, resembling a light?
ning stroke, and immediately following came
a sharp hiss, as of escaping Bteam. I knew
that an aerolite bad fallen, for bad the flash
been electrical there would have been a clap
of thunder. Driving on up the hill.1 noticed
that steam was issuing from the ground some
few rods back from the road, and, on hast?
ening to the spot, found a hole about four
inches in diameter, from which arose con?
siderable heated vapor. I drove homo as
rapidly as possible and, taking a pick and
shovel, returned to the spot.
"After half an hour's hard digging I came npon
tho object of my search at a depth of about tivo
foot. It w8- still too hot to handle, but I suc?
ceeded in getting it to my carriage by lifting it
on my shovel. Instead of a rough mass of mete?
oric iron there appeared a smooth, perfect sphere
of steel-blue metal, with polished surface, and en?
graved with pictures and writings. Thereupon
the surface of tho aerolite wan a deeply-graven
circle, within which was a four-pointed star, a
representative of a bird reptile, and a groat num?
ber of figures, rosembliig those used in modern
shorthand. Tho metal of whi.-.n tho ball was com?
posed was unlike anything 1 had over seen, bciug
about as hard as copper."
The ball will bo sent to the Smithsonian Insti?
tution in a short time, when an official report will
be made.?LouitvUl* Courier-Journal.

The Gazette is now the oldest paper li
tho State, and with few exceptions the oh)
eat iu the country, and its usefulness ha
boon demonstrated and appreciated durini
tho eighty-seven yea us of its existence, in
its columns has always been found a mirror
of passing events, and the careful chroni?
cling of tho history of what is going on in t be
world has over been its aim. It is always
welcomed in tho household, while i:. the
counting room and workshop it has become
The Gazette has better facilities for ob?
taining news than auy paper outside of the
national capital. Situated as it is so close
to the great centre of news, it enjoys daily
the benetit of the Associated Press dis
patches from every part of tho world ; hence
its patrons can read from its columns in the
evening what has transpired that day ir.
every portion of our own domain as well as
from every part of the habitable globe.
Consequently it is an every day occurrence
for the Gazette to publish telegrams from
the various European capitals twelve and
fifteen hours earlier than I he morning pa?
Another feature that serves to make the
Gazktth n great desideratum with mei
chants is its afternoon market reports from
New York, Baltimore, Chicago and olbi <
The local department famishes a full and
complete hinlory of everything that occurs
n and near tho city, and this feature will,
rs ever, receive careful attention.
Correspondence from Washington, Rich
moud and every section of the State, is pub?
lished regularly, and all oven ha of interest
occurring within the bounds of the Com?
monwealth are to bo found in the columns
3f the Gazettk.
The Gazette's circulation is steadily in
jreasing, especially among people who con?
sult its advertising columns before purcha^
ng. That this Is self-evident may be iufer
?ed from the fact that a large country edi?
tion?nearly as large as the daily?is sent
ill over this section of country three tirne
i week, and is read by thousands, most of
phom send here or to contiguous cities to
oake purchases. The advantages of ad
ertiaing in tho Gazette are, therefore, ap
bates op subscription.
