The following remarkable and extraordinary
narrative of the revivification of young Joseph
Taylor, who was supposed to have been hanged
to death, (in company with that notorious
highwayman, pickpocket and housebreaker,
Archibald Taylor,) on Boston Neck, on Thurs
day, the Bth of May, 1788, for a violent assault
and robbery on the highway, committed on the
person and property of Mr. Nathaniel Cun
ningham. butcher, in October, 1787, is from
the Vermont Journal of November 4, 1789 :
EGG HARBOR, Muth of the Delaware, I
MY DEAR FRIEND: You will, no doubt, be
greatly astonished at receiving a letter from
one whom you so lately saw, to all appearance,
numbered with the dead, with all the ignominy
of a public and shameful execution. But tho'
strange as it may appear, it is no less strange
than true, that, blessed be God for his infinite
goodness, I am now among the living to praise
him. It was my fervent desire that you should
have been made acquainted with the steps
which were taken to recover me to life imme
diately after my being hanged. But the doctor
who managed the affair would not admit of
more than five persons in the secret, as he
feared a discovery, and said a crowd around
me would be fatal, and prevent the air getting
into my lungs, and O'Donnell and Tector had
been told of it before I saw you, and they,
.with the doctor, his young man, and a person
he brought with him, made the five. I there
fore take this early opportunity to let you know
of my being alive, and in health, blessed be
God, as I hope that these lines will find you,
as also the circumstances 'which attend my
execution and recovery to life; as also my
present frame of mind and resolution, through
the grace of God, to sin no more, but endeavor
after new obedience.
You remember that you, among other friends,
had great hopes of my being pardoned on ac
count of my youth ; but when their honors sat,
I soon found I must be made an example of, as
they were determined never to pardon highway
men. I then began to prepare for death, but
must need say, though I had many affecting
conferences with the reverend parsons who
visited me in jail, I never, even after my con
demnation, realized that I was suddenly to die
in so awful a manner, until a gentleman, who
I afterwards found was a doctor, came and
talked privately with the late unhappy sufferer,
and my fellow eonvfet, Archibald Taylor, who;
when the gentleman was gone, came to me with
money in his hand, and so smiling a counte
nance, that I thought he had received it in
charity. But he soon undeceived me, telling
me with an air of gaiety, that it was the price
of his body, and then added a shocking speech,
which I sincerely hope is blotted out of the
book of God's remembrance against his poor
This was the first time since my condemna
tion that I thought what it was to die. The
shock was terrible, and Taylor increased it,
saying that the doctor had desired him to bar
gain with me for my body also. The thoughts
of my bones not being permitted to remain in
the grave in peace, and my Cody, which my
poor mother had so often caressed and dandled
on her knee, and which had been so pampered
by my friends in my better days, being slashed
and mangled by the doctors, was too much for
Jae. I had been deaf to the pious exhortations
of the priests, but now my conscience was
awakened, and hell seemed indeed to yawn for
What a night of horror was the next night, !
When the doctor came in the morning to bar
gain for my body, I was in a cold sweat ; my
knees smote together, and my tongue seemed
to cleave to the roof of my mouth. He per
ceived the agony of my soul, and asked me
some questions of the state of my mind. I
found utterance, and poured out my heart to
him. He seemed affected at my distress, espe
cially as my conduct was so different from that
of A. Taylor's ; and after passing, he left me
without mentioning the sale of my body, and
said he. would call again the next day. He
came and asked me privately whether I had
two or three friends I could depend upon to
assist in any thing for my benefit. He com
municated his design of attempting to recover
me to life if my body could be carried, imme
diately after I was cut down, to some conve
nient place, out of the reach of the people, as
suring r.e by all that was sacred, that if he
failed in his attempt he would give my body a
Christian burial. I closed with it withdut hes
itation. The doctor then left me, and soon
after Tector and O'Donnell came to see me, to
whom I communicated the plan in confidence.
The doctor came back to charge me not to trust
more persons than were sufficient to carry my
body from the gallows to the place provided.
I told him who the persons with me were ; and
upon O'Donnell's engaging to procure a num
ber of his countrymen to remove my body to a
privsyte place, who were not to be let into the
secret, but suppose it was to secure my body
from the doctors, he seemed pleased with the
plan, and made us promise to admit no more
persons into the secret, upon pain of his not
having to do in the affair so soon as it should
be discovered. He gave them money to hire a
small boat to be in readiness at the wharf,
nearest. to the place of execution, which boat
I think was hired of one Mr. Skinner or Skill
ings, near Oliver's Dock. The doctor under
took to find the place of execution, which was
then reported to be in several places, and to
procure a two-mast boat with a good cuddy,
which was to be moored off the wharf at a con
venient distance, all which was accordingly
done. The two-mast boat in which was the
doctor, his friend and apprentice, with their
doctors' instruments, was moored up the bay,
near the gallows, the morning of the execution
day, but tell down with the tide, about two
hours before the execution, toward Dorchester
Point, for fear of being groOnded.
The state of my *mind, after my conversation
with the doctor, until the day of execution, it
is impossible for me to describe. This glimpse
of hope—this mere thence of escaping the jaws
of death, and of avoiding the eyes of an offen
ded Judge, at whose bar I was noways prepared
to appear, seemed to but render my mind more
distracted. I sometimes indulged myself with
the thoughts of being recovered to life ; and
as I had fortunately concealed my real name,
that I might return, like the Prodigal, to my
parents, and live a life devoted to God and
their comfort. But I oftener feared the means
might fail to bring me to life, and then I wish
ed that this scheme had never been mentioned,
as the hopes of life seemed to prevent my con
version, and then, to be surprised into another
world, totally unprepared, how terrible ! Thus
distracted, the time flew, and the awful day
arrived. In the morning the reverend parsons
visited me. I was much softened by their
conversation, and really, at that time, wished
I bad never seen the doctor, but by the near
and certain approach of death, had been pre
pared to live in those blissful mansions which
are prepared in the world of glory for the
Soon after they left us, the doctor's young
man came (under pretense of a message from
Mrs. Ranger, who had shown me much kind
ness in jail, the Lord reward her for it,) to
renew the doctor's directions how to conduct
my body so as not to suffer the least shock.
He left me the following paper
Thursday Morning, May Bth, 1789.
Taylor, everything depends on your presence
of mind. Remember that the human machine
may be put in tune again if you preserve the
spinal muscle from injury and do not dislocate
the vertebra) of the neck; as the colli spinalis
is deduced from the transverse process of the
vertebrae of the throat, and is latterly inserted
into the vertebral of the neck, its connection
with the whole human frame is mater.al ; so
that you must endeavor to work that knot be
hind your neck, and press your throat upon
the halter, which will prevent the neck's
breaking, and likewise the compressions of
the jugular, and preserve the eirculaiions in
some degree. Seep up your spirits.
My hopes were now raised, and my former
terror did not return upon me; which I doubt
not was observed by the reverend parson who
attended me, by the officers of justice, and the
multitude, who doubtless compared my beha
vior with that of my fellow sufferer. It is
true, when I mounted the stage, I dreaded the
pain of hanging as I should any other bodily
pain, equally severe; but the far greater dis
tress of meeting an offended, inexorable Judge
and being contigned to endless misery, was
done away. For the nearer the time of execu
tion approached, the more my reliance on the
You were present at the solemn parting with
and warning which was given to the people—at
the excellent prayer of the Rev. Mr. &Elnan,
and the dropping of the traps, which, toe all
appearance, launched me and my poor, un
happy fellow prisoner, Archibald Taylor, into
a boundless eternity.
But to return to my particular feelings—l
preserved my presence of mind ; and when the
halter was fastened, remembered the doctor's
directions, and while the prayer was making I
kept gently turning my head so as to bring the
knot on the back of my Reek, nearly, as O'Don
nell afterward informed, and as you and others
observed. When the trap fell I had all my
senses about me ; and though I have no remem
brance of hearing any sounds among the peo
ple, yet I believe I did not lose my senses till
some minutes after. My first feelings after the
shock of falling was a violent strangling and
oppression for want of breath ; this soon gave
way to a burning pain in my eyes, which
seemed to be burned by two balls of fire which
appeared before them, which seemed to dart on
and off like lightning ; setting ever and anon
upon my shoulders as if they weighed ten hun
dred tons ; and after one terrible flash, in which
the two balls seemed to join in one, I sunk
away without pain, like one falling to sleep.
What followbd after I was turned off you
know, as I was informed you kindly assisted my
other friends in taking the body down as soon
as you were permitted, and conveying it across
the salt works to the small boat ; I was from
thence carried on board the two-mast boat to
the doctor, to all appearance deal ; for O'Don
nell, who was directed by the doctor to out and
loosen ray clothes, and rub me, throwing water
on me, could perceive no life in me, but told
the doctor it was too late. But the doctor was
not discouraged; and in one hour and twenty
two minutes after I was brought on board the
boat, making two hours and forty-three minutes
after I was turned off, he perceived signs of
life in me, by a small motion and warmth in
my bosom. In twenty minutes after I gave a
violent deep groan. Here description fails ! I
can not describe the intolerable agony of that
moment. Ten thousand stranglings are trifling
to it ! The first confused thoughts I had were,
that it was the moment of my dissolution; for
I had no knowledge of my removal from the
gallows, but was quite insensible from the time
I first lost myself to that in which I recovered
—except some faint glimmerings of a scene,
which, faint and confused as they were, I shall
never forget, but which I feel impressed upon
my heart I ought to communicate to no man
I was soon after this violent anguish made
sensible where I was ; the doctor's stuff; and
sight of my friends, restored me in a great
measure to my senses. The doctor would not
allow me to talk much ; but feeling fatigued,
he permitted me to lie down, having two per
sons by me to rub me with a brush while I
slept. 'When I awoke it was dark. I felt
somewhat light-headed and confused from the
dreadful scene I had passed through. All
hands were now called, and a solemn oath was
taken by all present not to tell anything which
bad happened until they should know that I
was safe out of the country; and then not to
discover the doctor, his friend, or apprentice.
I was then put on shore, and went from thence
on board the vessel which brought rue here.
I am engaged to go to Gottenburg, in Swe
den ; and shall sail to-morrow in a ship which
is coming down the river from Philadelphia. I
shall take my family name, and return to my
parents a Prodigal Son indeed. God grant, as I
have severely eaten husks, that I may soon eat
bread in my. earthly parents' house ; and be
prepared for such bread as the saints in glory
love, and such as angels eat, in that house which is
not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
I remain your assured friend, until d ea
shall indeed come. .TOSRPR TAYLOR.

ENORMOUS BUSINESS FOR ONE NEW YORK MERCHANT._
We are happy to'inform our fellow-citizens that there is
one place in our city where the physician, apothecary,
and country merchant, can go and purchase pure Wiwi
and Liquors, as pure as imported, and of the best quality.
We do mot intend to give an elaborate description of this
merchant's extensive business, although it will well re
pay any stranger or citizen to visit Unot,rno Wotes:s
extensive warehouse, Nos. 18, 20 and 22, Beaver shed.
and Nos 17, 19 and 21, Marketfield street.. His stock at
Schnapps on hand ready for shipment could not bare
been less than thirty thousand cases.; the Brandy, some
ten thousand cases—Vintages of 1836 to 1866; and ten
thousand cases of Madeira, Sherry and Port Wines,
Scotch and Irish Whisky, Jamaica and St. Croix Rum,
some very old and equal to anyin thistountry. Its also
had threelarge cellars, filled with Brady, Wines, &c.
in casks, under Custom-Meuse key, ready for bottlini
Mr. WoLra , s sales of Schnapps last year amounted to
one hundred and eighty thousand dozen, and we hope in
less than two years he may be equally succeed' with
his Brandies and Wines.
• His business Merits the patrimage of every lover of
his species. Private families who wish pure Wines and
Liquors for medical use should send their ardent direct
to Mr. WoOrs, until every Apothecary in the land make
up their minds to discard the poisonous stuff from their
shelve's, and replace it with Woure , a Imre WINES and
We understand Mr. Wor.rs, for the accommodation of
