Astronomical prediction Verified

--Soon after the first appearance here, on the 1st of July, of the great comes, the astronomers unanimously announced as the result of their calculations respecting its orbit, that it must have been a bright and conspicuous object to eyes in the Southern hemisphere during the month of June. This prediction has been confirmed by a letter from Dr. Moesta, Director of the Guillon National Observatory at Sanford dated June 17 wherein he states that a brilliant comet had been visible there since the beginning of June. A comparison of its the heavens, as there observed, shows that it was then following the very path which our astronomers predicted it had done, after it became visible here. The prediction with regard to its brilliancy and course among the Southern state has been triumphantly
