  Another Stone fallen from the Skies! - As to this there 
can be no doubt; it was in Paris that the phenomenon 
was seen. On the 3d inst. before day-break, says a 
Paris Journal, a stone of the weight of 10 lbs. fell from 
the sky into the court of the Swedish Hotel, in the 
street de Richelieu; It awoke by its noise all the persons 
who lodged in that Hotel. It buried two paving stones 
three inches deep; and, in short, spread in the court a 
sulphureous smell difficult to be endured. We are assured 
that this sky-stone has been submitted to the learned men 
of the Institute to be analyzed, in order to convince the 
most incredulous.

(Mark note: I can not find any reference to this meteorite in 
Meteorites A to Z).
