Grimmer's Prophecy. Scientific American. AN anxious reader submits a reprint of an extended and direful prophecy made about a year ago by C. A. Grimmer, of Kingston, Ja[?]ai[?]a, and asks our opinion of it. .'?'.' Mr. Grimmer professes to be an astrologist, nnd to base his predictions upon the position of the four great planets, whose conjunction in 1880 will produce " ono universal carnival of death" from 1880 to 1887. During this period tho elements are to ploy high jinks ; things will bo turned upside down generally by earthquakes and frightful storms, which will convert tho whole world into a universal Sodom and-Go-' niorrah. Famines, plagues, inundations, wars of mutual extermination, and other nnploasantuessee will conspire to ex terminate pretty much all the animal aud human life that escapes the_ ele mental cabobbery, until-August 1887, when the Star of Bethlehem will arise, and things be worse than over.
