The Heavenly Visitor,
Tho now comet, discovered on tho
23rd, became visible for the llrst time in
this locality Sunday night. It appeared
in tho northwest about 20 degrees above
'the horizon. It presented a woll-do-
llned and luminous nucleus, from which
a long mlst-liko incandescent, or lu
minous tiU ascended towards tho zenith,
trending in a uorthenstly direction. It
assumed almost a lan shape, and resem
bled somewhat an aurora, or northern
light, in tho northern sky. Its tail is
Bald to bo 4,000,000 miles in length, and

The whole city was out gazing at tho
erratic celestial visitor. It presented a
most beautiful sight, and a clear sky m
ttio early evening gave a most favorable
opportunity to bsorve it. lor three or
four days, or since the llrst appearance
of tho strange visitor, tho eastern press
has been discussing it. The heavenly
visitors are always n puzzle to nstrono.

did not seem to lake this bit ot
