FRIGHTFUL DEATH FROM HYDROPHOBIA—A
CHILD BITTEN BY A CAT.— The Isockport Jour
nal relates the following distressing case : A
little girl aged three years, living on Monroe
street, died ou Weducsday evening from the
effects of a bite by a rabid cat. She was bit
ten some weeks since, over the eye, the wounds
exhibiting the prints of the teeth. The cat
had been bitten by a dog, which was ascertain
ed to be rabid, and the parents, being alarmed,
submitted the case to Dr. Moore of Gosport.
No decided symptoms of the horrible disease,
however, were manifested until Saturday last,
the 15th, when drowsiness and nervous excita
bility at the approach of fluids were exhibited
by the child. On Sunday the poor sufferer
grew wild and frantic, and during the day was
thrown into violent spasms. The convulsions
which shook the frame of the patient were re
doubled with frightful intensity at the approach
of fluids, every nerve repelling its vicinity with
spasmodic horror. The disease, ou Monday,
exhibited still more definite symptoms of mad
ness, a flashing of the eye and frothing of the
mouth accompanying the convulsions. Drs.
Leonard and Gould were called, and adminis
tered cblorororm which temporarily produced
a quieting effect ; but relief was beyond the
skill of man. The awful suffering's of the
child were protracted until Wednesday even
ing, when it was relieved by death.
THE MURDERERS OF MATTHWS.— The prophet
ess is yet in jail, and is confined in the same
cell with Abigail Sables and Thankful S. Her
sey. They spend most of their time in the cell
in prayer, and seem to regard the whole pro
ceedings thus far as a " persecution" instead
of a " prosecution." The prophetess says she
has a revelation from God every night ! There
is much interest taken in these deluded wo
men by our citizens, who visit the jail in large
numbers to see them. We were wrong in
stating Thursday morning that Israel Wood
ing had been released from jail. He still re
mains in jail, but is merely detained as a wit
ness. It is quite improbable that Sly and
Mrs. Hersey may have their trial before the
Superior Court, now in session.— JVetc Haven

lIoRRini.E BRUTALITY. —The Cincinnati (Ohio)
Commercial, of the 28th ultimo, states that

of liquor, poured some camphene over the hair
and whiskers of a colored waiter, whom they
fotmd asleep, and then set tire to it. The
poor fellow lived for two weeks in extreme
tortnre and then died, hut no steps have as
yet been tuken to have a legal investigation,

SAVAUE ATTACK. —On the evening of the
20th alt., Judge HYATT, of Nichols, was in
Owego and at the store of ROBERT CAMERON,
he was met by BARNEY CRIAFFE, who drives a
wagon iu this village. BARNEY, it is said, was
iutoxicated. His wagon had l>een broken a
few days ago by a teamster of Judge HYATT'*,
who accidentally ran his wagon into it. Bar
ney attacked the Jndge about the injury to
bis wagon, aud, being drunk, the Jndge did
not pay much attention to him. This enrag
ed him, and he suddenly drew a stake from his
wagon and struck the Jndge above the car,
cutting a horrid gash in his head. The extent
and danger of the injury is not yet fully known.
Barney (led across the bridge, threatening
that if a constable was sent after him he would
serve him in the same manner.— (Jtcrgo Times.

THE ELECTRO CHEMICAL BATH,
DIRECT & TO-&-FRO ELECTRO MAGNETIC MACHINE.
TAMES HARRIS. Et.WTRK-iAX, of Towanda, respect
fully informs the public that be has lately procured
from New York the celebrated Electro-Chemical Bath,
which has proven to be one of the most Jimportaut and
wonderful discoveries of the age. from its ability to extract
minerals from the human system.
Some eight years ago, a physician of Cincinnati disco
vered the process of extracting minerals from the body,
by galvanism ; more recently, M. Verges, of New York,
an electro-gilder, having suffered from the introdnetion of
poisonous minerals into his system in the prosecution of
his art, conceived the idea of removing them by the same
processes, he succeeded in doiug so, and quickly recovered.
He then applied the same means to others similarly af
fected, with like results. His success exceeded his nio;t
sanguine expectations, for not only did these Baths remove
mineral pofsons, but cured many diseases, some of which
were the result of minerals, and some were not.
More recent experiments have fully confirmed the sin
gular power of this Bath to draw from the system all mi
nerals that may be lodged therein, to the great detriment
of health. Very often persons are atilkted by diseases
which are beyond the comprehension of the most skilful
physicians, and which are the effect of poisonous mine
rals accumulating in the system tor years, taken in the
shape of calomel, lead. Ac. Ac.
The following are some of the diseases cured by these
baths : Rheumatism, Paralysis, Palsy, Painter's Choiic.
Chronic Ulcers, Glandular Swellings, Scrofula, Cancer,
Xeuralia in all its forms, Salt Rheum and Humors of all
He has also S. B. Smith's newly invented DIRECT AND
TO-AKD FKO ELECTRO MAGNETIC MACHINE, which
is a great improvement on the Magnetic machines hereto
fore in nee. With the' aid of the Bath and Machine, we
have at command all the available medical eflfiricney of
Electricity. The medical power of the Machine is verv
great, in introducing medicines into the system through
the pores of the skiu—applyiug it directly to the part- af
fected, which gives an increase of medicinal power over
that of taking it into the stomach, rendering it particular
ly efficacious in all local diseases.
F am now prepared to apply these Baths, and also the
Machines, at my house in the south part of the borough
of Towanda, or 1 will visit patients at a distance, who are
unable by reason of disease to come to this place, at mo
lam also sole agent for Bradford countv, for the al>ote
Machines. J A MES 11A KUIS.
