constructed, the said negroes will oc
cupy the moose-yard, formerly called-
Maryland, but which of late, by di
rection of the President, has been .
humanely converted into a pasture
suitable for this purpose.
Third—As the said "Sisters," after
they return will have no further use

THE TIGERS OF SINGAPORE-THEIR AP
PETITE FOR ,HUMAN FLESH.
We quote from Commodore Perry's
entertaining "Expedition, to Japan"
the following page, relatite to the in
formation gained by that command
er during his stoppage at. Singapore at
the end of the Malacca Straits, on the
subject of Malay tigers—merely re
marking that it was in 1853, and
that since that time the tigers have
become much more numerous and de
structive than ever, the evil reaching
such an extent about eighteen
months since, that general and or
ganized action Was taken to destroy
as many as possible of these pests;
for the preservation of the _people :
'The native animals are generally
the same as those of the adjacent
peninsula, from which many of them
migrate. The tigers especially en
tertain a great partiality for Singa
pore, and resort 'there in great num
hers by swimming across the strait,
which separates the main land from
the island. These are the genuine
animals, which have no hesitation in
pouncing upon a passing; traveller, or ,
snatching-up„and„..m io aking a: `meal ,of
apratifiTifarnifte Ohan:fan or native
who may happen to he in the jungle,
busy in cutting wood, clearing land
for the rice plantations, or otherwise
occupied. It was stated on the best
authority, that not a day passes with
out the destruction of . one human be
ing, at Least, by those ferocious beasts.,
The Commodore was at first some
what disposed to be incredulous of
this statement, but as the acting gov
ernor and commander-of the' forces
- both confirmed it, he .cOeld no, longer
hesitate to accept it 'as truth. lie
was told by them that so much of an
every day occurrence was this fatality,
that many of the cases-- were not re
ported, in order to - avoid, the' trouble
and expense of - a coroner's inquest,
which the laws require. Death by
tiger;showever f is a verdict that might
be rendered' daily were the legal for-
malities complied With.
' It is said, and probably vvitb . truth
that the tiger, after lie has once test-.
ed of human ilesh, becomes so fond'of.
it that he prefers its flavor to that of
his ordinary venison - or wild bore,
and will make every effort to -obtain
a supply of his favorite food. It is
this intense longing for human' flesh
which mabeslhe tiger so- very dan
gerous to the inhabitants of Singa
pore, especially to the poor Malay or
Chinese who may he obliged to -ex
pose himself in the' jungle apd the
forest It was said, too,-that the awl
mai showed decided preference for,a
"Nor do these stories of the tiger
stem very wonderful, when the fact
is well established, that those savages
who are addicted to cannibalism be
come passionately fond of their horri
bly unnatural food. There is a tribe

- WHOLE - FAMILI'BURNTITUTINDTK
ZEN TO DEATH.
By a passenger who arrived here
on the Central Railroad last night,
from the west, we learn of one of the
most fearful and heart rending affairs
that has ever occurred in this section
of the country, viz : That a family of
seven' persons were frozen to death
during the cold weather on Friday
last. About thirty Miles from the
boundary line betweed 'Michigan and
Indiana, in the lajter State, about
midway between' ‘TenterVille and
Crown Point, lived a German with
his wife and five children, named
liratzer. The olffest was a boy of
seven years of age, the next boy of
five, and three girls, all of less than
the boys, the youngest but an in.
The country where the family re
sided,is very rolling, dind the. snow
had drfted into the hollows, making
the roads almost, if not= wholly, im
passable for OM) pedestrians.
The driver of the stage coach com
ing from Crovvii Point to Lake, via
Centerville, found that, Krutzer's
dwelling had been burned to the
ground, it its:supposed the night pre
viously, but none of the family were
to be seen. About a mile further on,
he was horrified to find the father and
two boys frozen to death. The boys
were in the father's arms, and it, is
supposed that he, had fallen with them
after having been so far affected with
the frost as not to be able to proceed.
The 'three corpses were placed in the
stage, but before it had, proceeded
more than a quarter of
,a Mile on its
destination, the body of the oldest girl
was found in, a snow drift, with a
shawl wrapped closely around it
where it bad doubtless been deposi
ted by its weary mother, while yet
alive, in the hope that, s,omo chance
traveller might, rescue it from an, int,
pending fate. .
This corpse, too, .was placed in the
coach, and again it started on its way,
only to find, after traveling a short
distance, the lifeless remains of the
mother, with th,e two youngest, chil
dren. The body of, the mother was
standing erect in ,a snow. drift, with
the children in her, arms, tbe young
est being at the breast.
The seven lifeless bodies were con.
veyed to Centerville by the driver of
the, stage, at which, place they were
decently interred ; by the, inhabi

prelate was at the same college, used to
rise every' night, and write out either ser
rricins Or pieces of music.-LTo study his
condition, the , hishop betook himself sev
era Imight,s, consecutively, tb the chamber
of the youngrman, where he. made the
following observations :—This young
Clergyman used to rise, take paper, and
begin to write.=-Before writing malty, he
would takel:a . stick and rule the lines.
He, wrote, the notes with corresponding
words, both with the utmost accuracy; or
when, by chance, he had written the
words" too wide, he altered them. After
completing a sermon, he would read it
aloud, 'front beginning to end: If any
passage displeased.him he erased • it, and
wrote the amended passage correctly
over the other. On one oceaision, in or
der to ascertain whetherhe used his eyes,
the bishop interposed a sheet of paste
board between his face - and the writing.
The sleeper took not the least notice, but
went ~ oni writing, as before. The limita
tions of his perceptions to what he was
thinking about Were very curious. A
piece of aniseed cake, that he had sought
for he ate approvingly, but when, On
another occasion, a piece of the same cake
was put into his mouth, he spat it out.
It is to be observed that he always knew
when his Fen had ink in it; and if they
aireitly changed his paper when he was
writing, he knew it ; if:the sheet substitu
ted was of a different size from the . form
er, and in that case he appeared embar
rassed. But if the fresh sheet of paper,
which was substituted for that written on,
was exactly of the same size with it, he
appeared not to be aware of the change ;
and, he would continue to read off his
composition from the blank sheet of pa
per as fluently as when the manuscript
lay before him ; slaY, more he would con
tinue his corrections, and introduce an
amended passage, writing it upon the pre.
cise place in the blank sheet corresponding
with that which it would have occupied
on the already written. page. Such are
the teats of somnambulism l The eccle
siastic, indeed, seems at first to, have seen
through a"sheet of paste board ; but the
concluding fact in his case shows that he
really used his preception only to identify_
the'size and place of the sheet of paper.
His writing upon it was the mechanical
transcript of an act of mental penmanship.
The corrections fell into the right places
upon the paper, owing to the fidelity with
which he retained the mental picture, his
attention being exclusively concentrated
on that one operation."

Othello." Just as the curtain was

use to me.
Throughout the first act, while
"Old Buck" was stamping about and
performing with his- usual 'vigor of
voice 'and action, I saw my tipsy
neighbor looking alternately at his
bill and the stage, as though he found
some difficulty in reconciling the
course of events ; but whatever he

Mr. Brest himself was -as anxious
to know the cause as any of the med
ical gentlemen, and he submitted
himself to some experiments. A .
small portion of the cuticle or scurf
skin -was removed without pain or
ineonvenience to the subject of the op
eration. This membrane was ex.
ceedingly pullucid, and not at all af
fected with discoloration. The small
portion of blood that came from these
parts was beautifully crimson ; and
the same that was drawn from a vein
on his left arm. The most powerful
microscopes were brought into requisi
tion, but their aid brought no relief
to the searching minds of the doctors.
They were astounded then, and still
remain in the same predieament.—
Mr. Brest bears his changes of color
with remarkable philosophy, and e
ven jokes about it. He consoles him
self with the thought that he has still
a split in the end of his
. ElO6O, which
he says, a negro has not, and that by
this unerring sign he can establish
his claim to being white although he
has a dark skin.—Phila.delphia Age.
A NAUTICAL Tom—Some years ago,
the schooner • Sally Ann' under com
mand of one Capt Spooner, was beating
up the Connecticut'river. Mr. Comstock,
the mate, was at his .station foreword.
According, to his notion of thingsohe
schooner was getting a little too near to
certain4igats" which lay along the Jai;
board Me. So aft he goes to the cap;
tain, and with his hat cocked on one side,'
says: 'Cap's Spooner, you're gettin'
leetle too close to them flats; hadn't yon
better go about?' To which Captain
Spooner replied; 'Mr. Comstock, jest
you go for'ard and tend - to your part - of

he. Down went the anchor, out rattled
the chain , and like a flash the "Sally:Ararii
came lulling into the: wind, and then
brought up all standing : ,_Mr. Comstoelf
walked aft, and touching his hat very
cavalierly, said: "Welf, Cap"o, my part
of the skuner is to anchor`?''"
RENEGADES.-Wp never knew a rene
gade from the Democr.atie party but
what,claimed that 'their principles were
the same as ever, and that the -party had
abandoned i the principles Tf. the party,
and had gone,over to the opposition.
This class of patriots,. now quite nu- ;
merous about here, are •pretty *ell taken
off by Hon. George B. Smith, of Wiscort
sin. His story rails "about as follows:
An old Indian having strayed from hiss.
wigwam, found himself lost in trying.to
return to it. After looking about into
strange "lodges" here and there, -the_ ,into:
an exclaimed in dismay, "Nun lost l" but •
recovering himself and unwilling to ad:-
knowledge such short sightedness, con: -
tinned, drawing himself up : "No—la-_
jin no lost—wigwam lost—(and striking,
his breast) Injin here !"
So with the wandering Demograts—
they are unwilling to acknowledge They
have strayed from the party—it is thel
party that is lost. The bolter says, , "No,;
I'm no bolter, it is the party that has bol
ted. I'm here," (and that's right in the
centre of the Abolition camp.)
ORIGIN OF "SEEING THE ELEPHANT."
Some years since, at one of our
theatres, a pageant was in the re
hearsal, in which it was necessary to
havaan elephant. No elephant was
to be had. 'The.wild -beasts"- were
traveling, and 'the property man;
stage director 'and manager; alineet
had fits when they thought of it.—
Days passed 'in the hopeless task of
trying to secure one ' " bat at last

and property man stuck out; and two
