Tho fallowing interesting details respec

given by M. Kabinet, an eminent Trench

of Sciences, in an article recently published.
The Boston Traveler translates from the
Courier des Elates Unl : 1
This Comet is one of the grandest
of which historian make mention. Its
period of revolutions U about three hun
dred vears. It was seen in the years 104,

in 1818, but it failed to appear mique an

the preparatory labors of Mr. Hind, with a
patience truly Dutch, has revised nil the
calculation, und estimated all the nations

of thi patient labor irives the arrival of
the comet in August, 1S58, with an uncer

'An attempt was made to blow down the tall
steeple on the square, en Sunday night last.
Holes had been bored in three of the posts sur
rounding the bell, and charges of powder put
in, secured by plugs. A small gimlet hole
served to introduce the match. Two of the
charge went off about tiidnight with a sound
like lite discharge of a eannun, splitting the
posts, but not seriously endangering the stability
of the steeple. The third charge remained on
Monday morning. The design was evidently to
throw the steeple down on to the main building

PltAIIME STATE, Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4.
riiis stove lias ben thoroughly tested from eight
een to twenty thousand have been sold in the last three
years. It has no equal for draft, durability, and neat
ness of finish and design. In baking, broiling and
boiling, it is superior lo any other slove. It is very
easy to understand using it, and it will do more ba
king, in less time, and with lejs fuel and trouble, and
will do it better, it is believed by those who are uing
it, than any other slove. It is well known to all who
have used the Prize Premium Stoves, manufactured by
G. F. Killey, St. Louis, that the fire drawing through
under the oven, it consumes a laige quantity of wood,
ai d soon burns out, making it very unprovable for the
buyer. In the Prairie Stale Stove all these objections
are dene away. The plates are heavy, which makes
the stove duiable. I Ins stove is made ot the uray
Scotch Pig Iron -not ot the Missouri Mountain Iron.
it is well known lo all who are acquainted with iron;
that ihe Missouri Mountain Iron is not fit lo make
Stoves of, as it is too hard and brittle. That accounts
for the breaking of the stoves mtiiul'actured or
that iron; we acknowledge that the Missouri Menu
tain Iron makes exce'leut bar iron- The flues, unon
which the responsibility and reputation or a stove
depend, differ from any ever belore used, and are ol
such a construction and capacity as to insure the
most perfect draft. We are talislied that the Prairie
Slate Stove will last twenty-five years, if properly
used. It is nearly double the weight of any other
stoye or its size in market. Purchasers will bear in
mind that it is always cheapest in the end to buy a
heavy stoye, as more iron is purchased for the same
amount ot" money, than in a light one. This stove
has taken the first premiums at all Ihe f.iiis in the
State of New York, and every other State where it
has been present. This stove will take larger trim
mings, and has a larger oven to its size than any
othrr stove in the universe. This stove is not nar
rowly co iiructed on the top, as a slove called the
Charter Oak. The Hannibal Mammoth Stove Store
is the only place where the genuine Prairie State
Stove is sold in Hannibal. 1 have slso a large as
sortment of stoves of the latest patterns, froj) every
important, foundry in the United States, which I will
sell at reduced prices; also a large lot or tin and
copper ware, all of which 1 aell fifteen pea. cent,
cheaper than they can be had in this city; for sale
at the Hannibal Mammoth Slove Store, coiner Main
and llud Streets, opposite ine Wild Corner. Hannibal

Wholesale dealers will do well to call on me belore

they ran be puicuased elsewhere, and a far superior
