By the patent to Symrrea of dale 30tl
of September, 17'.4, the litlo to 311, 08
acres of land was conveyed to hitu, with
reseivations and trust. Among the latter
was one that six miles square in tho cen
tre of said land, shouid be reserved for er
ecting nm academy under the direction of
the then Governor of the. Territory north
west of the Ohio, withinjtive yours fiuin
date of patent. This fact explains the
trtiot encumbrance for t h use of schools
mentioned in this paragraph.
Tho proposition of Synimcs representa
tives was to obtain possession of tho reser
ved six miles square, which, it seems, was
never used for the purpose indicated in
the patent, 'i'he lands are no. very valu-.
able, being situated near the city of Cin
cinnati. in the State ot Ohio. V.'.ii-.

remarkable and touchinu storv of a little
boy, tho son of a gentleman in on adjoin

nti interesting promising lad. Ono dav
during the past winter, ho failed to rise
in the morning as early as usual. At
length his father went "into tlio rooim
wlu-re he lay, nnd asked him whv he did.
not get up ? He .,id it seeded dark yet
nnd ho was waiting fur daylight, His"fa
thcr retired, but tho boy did not make
bis appearance for .some time ; he relum
ed u second time and said, "My son, why
don't you get up?" Father is it daylight i'
"Yes' long ago." "Then Father tho lit.
tie fellow said, "I am blind" und so it wai
his sight was gone.
In a short time his father took him to
Nashville, to get the benefit of tho medi
cal profession there, but none of the pliy..
si. lians could do anything tor him, and
hapily made no experiments on his eves.
Soffie ladies in the family of bis father's
sotuht to cheer him in his affliction, and
one night proposed to take him to thoop
cra that ho might her the music and sing
ing. Ho wont, and was delighted. In
the course of tho performance, all at
once he leaped up, thre v his nrmsnround
bis lathei's neck, and screamed with oes-
lacy, " Oh ! Kathor, I can soe ! I can see!"
His sight, had instantly ieturue.d. And
since then he has retained ititi full vigor,
except that under excitement thero is
a transint dimness of vision. The case is
one of a remaskablo and s'tigul.ir charnc
