A luminous body was seen to descent towards the earth, and when arrived at a certain height to burst into fragments. The flash of light was followed by rumbling noises, which ended in three loud reports, and were attended by a fall of aerolites. Three stones, which are undoubted meteorites, were afterwards picked up, and brought to Setif, which is tem miles from the place of fall. A fragment, which is deposited in the museum at Algiers, is placed at the disposal of the French Academy.
