Ship Nearly Hit by Meteorite
A narrow escape from being struck by a meteorite was experienced by
the Leyland Rae(?) steamer Bostonian recently. Captain Perry saw the meteorite
flashing brilliantly, falling to the southwest of the vessel. There 
was a hissing sound as it approached and with a loud report it fell into the 
ocean a few ship's length's from the Bostonian's bow. It caused so great 
a disturbance in the sea that water was dashed over the decks of the steamer.
