The Paris correspondent of the Times, writ
ing on the lWtti of AufftraL sau :—-
" Mr. Stunner left town yesterday for a sea-.
! son at Aix-les Uaiiis. in Savoy: , The, cauter-i
--zation of the spine lias done him goocl, and uf
i ter nj season at Aix he will return to Paris
asrain and to he * morns. Perhaps your rote
; ders do not know the character of this reme
dy. A mi'.ra is thus made and applied : It
is compose*! ordinarily of carded cotton, rolled
| into a cone, the base of which may have an
| inch diameter, and slightly pressed by and con
! tained in a piece of muslin, or other cloth.—
The cotton is saturated in some alcoholized
substance, such ns camphor or nitre. It is
then placed on the skin of the patient, over
tiie diseased part, tlie cotton is lighted, and as
the (lame reaches the bottom of the cone, it
is blown into the skin by means of a blow
pipe. The skin around is protected by a wet
cloth. The greatest pain is experienced when
the Ila me first reaches the skin. Soon the cu
ticle begins to crack ; the skin contracts into
furrows, turns Ihuwii, then fries, and finishes
by becoming black and carbonized, like other
i burnt substances. These ■jno.uis must be re
■j pen ted often and over whole course of the
j spine, if tlie disease lie there,-hi order to pro
i duce a permanent effect. They are thus call
,ed from a Chinese and .Japanese tissue like
; cotton, the Aihtitisin ('imensio, which they
; call in those countries mom, for it is from
countries that the practice of the mor-a, is de
; rived, and it is as old as history. It is, in
fact, so old a treatment, even in modern times
ami modern nations, that it has almost gone
: out of use ; yet is sometimes resorted to in ca-
I ses which have resisted all the other counter
. irritants, and not uufrcqnently with marked
i benefit. The praetiee of burning the skin, or
other diseased parts, which had gone some
what out of use a few years ago, is now hist
coming into use again in Paris. Scarcely a
, ward of the Paris hospitals is now without its
, portable furnace of charcoal and red-hot irons.
They arc applied, as well in medicine as in sur
gery, for a practice in chronic, illy-defined af
j fictions. The practice now in vogue, is that
of stripping the patient naked and drawing an
iron, healed to a white heat, ipiickly over the
| body, parching the cuticle brown in its track,
: and giving to the body the appearance of a
striped zebra. If the iron is white and the
operation is practiced cleverly, the patient does
not suffer from it enough to force a cry ; hut
j if the iron is only red, the pain is, of course,
Remark ama. Phenomenon—lmmense Swarm
ok Stranue Insects.—A correspondent of
i the New York Evening Post, writing from
I Poplar Ridge, N. Y., under date of Sept 2d,
Yesterday, at about four o'clock P. M., the
atmosphere became suddenly filled with mvr
i iads of insects of a type entirely unknown in
, this region, as far as I can learn. The phe
: nonunion is known to have extended several
miles, and appears to have occurred at the
1 same moment. The insect is about one-fourth
lof an inch long, and closely resembles the
| common ant.
i Rut the strangest part of the matter (that
is, tome,) remains to be told. As soon as
they appeared, they began to alight upon
j whatever object they came in contac' with,and
to give birth to young insects ready winged,
which in a few seconds ascended inio'tlic air,
while the old ones threw themselves into vio
lent contortions which continued until they
succeeded in ridding themselves of their wings
—afictfwhii li they appeared to be much reliev
ed, and ran bri.-kly about upon the ground, as
contented, apparent, as though they had never
possessed the power of flight. In an hour, the
earth was alive with these fallen insect angels,
' and strewn with their Jifi less wings, while the
tiny, new horn progeny, had ascended,and were
sporting in t'*e beams of the evening sun. This
; morning the parent insects may be seen secret
ed among the grass, or whatever offers pro
tection for the night, while the new genera
tion appear dormant upon the surface, await
-1 ing the warming rays of the rising sun.
Entomologists may lie familiar with such a
perpetuation of an insect race, without the in
tervention link of the larval. If so, will some
one enlighten us on the subject.
Tiik 1 *ncol'nted Vote ix Kansas. —The

Ihe supposition of the Hepublieon is that these

The postmaster at Topofen, Kansas, had tlie
presumption to vote against Lecompton on the

Let llim Answer. —lt is understood that
a number of leading Democrats in the West

question, and that they have determined to

Cay The accident reported by the Tele
graph, as having occurred on the Steubenville
. and Indiana Railroad turns out to have been
I less serious than at first supposed. While a
train was crossing a bridge seventeen miles
west of Steubcnville, a car and the rear engine
jumped from the track and knocked out some
of tlie main timbers, when the bridge gave
way. The baggage car and one passenger car
went down and were completely smashed in
pieces. One person only was fatally injured,
though quite a number were more or less
bruised and maimed.

and confusion would require a more Ueile pen
than ours to give a faithful representation.-
After waiting some half hour or so, for the
spirit to move some " old-liper," Dr. HORTOX
arose and said that the meeting had been call-
I ed as one of " Old Line Whigs," but as there
seemed not to be any present to organize the

' any other person an opportunity, which if not
improved, he should proceed to organize a

After further delay, no motion losing made,
the Dr. stepped forward to organize his pro-

HANSON, who objected to the Doctor's pro

! ter some discussion between the two geutlc
meu , the Doctor, still offering to give way to
any other organization, nominated Esq. (JCICK
for Chairman, who was unanimously elected,
the Dr. and one or two others voting for him.
j A Secretary was then elected in the same man

Resolutions, which was adopted in like man

which the Committee might be imagined to
have retired, the Dr. pulled a string of resolu

them, as the re)>ort of the Committee. The

having conferred together, stated that they

moved that the meeting adjourn, which was
put and voted down by an overwhelming ma
jority, when the Dr. announced that his meet

by this time was in remarkably good humor !
did not seem disposed to leave, and loud calls
were made for various distinguished gentlemen, '
some of whom appeared and endeavored to ad- J
dress the meeting, to the intense delight and I
i gratification of the audience, if wc can judge i
from the bursts of laughter and rounds of ap- I
plause. Finally, the person in charge of the j
j Court Room, thinking the show had lasted long j
enough, commenced putting out the lights, and j
the crowd reluctantly began to disperse, with !
the exception of our Hunker friends, rctnai ka- I
bly well pleased with the performances.
I —The originators of this meeting failed to
appear and carry out the programme which j
I had been arranged with the Buchanan leaders
of the County. Their endeavors to obtain j
countenance and sympathy from the friends of j
the disappointed candidates for nominations in |
the Republican Convention were utterly fruit-1
less, and they found themselves without sup-'
port in their efforts to distract and divide the
Republican party of the County. The leaders
in the movement were those who never had
any regard for Republican principles, have
; never supported its candidates, and would glad
j I}' do anything which would briugabouta state
of disorder and confusion. Their endeavors
have been utterly unavailing. The Republi
cans of the County who may imagine they
have grievances which should be redressed, do
not find the proper mode in the schemes of the
Buchanan leaders of the County, though those
leaders may at one time have claimed to bo
" old-line wliigs."

that the wife of SMITH GRIFKIV, residing in
Athens township, Pa., on Monday last, while
crossing in a one horse wagon, the railroad
track on Clark street, met with an accident
which will undoubtedly result in her death.
The horse becoming frightened at the engine,
dashed furiously across the track, throwing
Mrs. GKIFFIX upon the wheel, in which posi
tion she lay until coming in contact with a
hitching post at the corner of the Bradford
House—mangling and bruising her horribly.
She was kindly taken care of by Messrs. REEL

though now, at the time of writing, (Wednes

fering condition, no hope for her ultimate re
covery can be entertained.
