THE RESCUED CRIMINAL.
FROM BLACKWOOD'S LADY'S MAGAZINE
, A great number of persons who know the
celebrated Dr. B a 'professor of the Col
lege of Surgeons, haVe often heard him relate
the following anecdote:--
"One day that he had procured the bodies
of two criminals, who had been hung, for
the purpose of anatomy, not being able to
find the , key of the dissecting-room at the
moment the two subjects were brought, he
ordered them to be deposited in an apartment
,contiguous to his bedroom.
During the evening Dr. B—wrote and
read as usual previous to retiring to rest.
The clock had just struck one, and all the
family slept soundly, when all at once, a dull
sound proceeded from the room containing
the bodies. '
Thinking that perhaps the cat had been
shut up there by mistake, he went to see
whit could be the cause of the unexpected
noise. What was his astonishment, or rath
er his horror, on discovering that the seek
which contained the bodies was torn asunder;
and on going nearer, he found that one of the
bodies was missing!
The doors and windows had been fastened
with the greatest care, and it appeared im
possible that the body could have been•stolen.
The good doctor appeared rather nervous on
remarking this, and it was not without art
uneasy sensation that he began to look about
him, when to his horror and amazement he
perceived the missing body sitting upright
in a corner.
Poor Dr. B—, at this unexpected appa
rition became transfixed with terror which
was increased by observing the dead and
sunken eyes or the corpse fixed upon . him;
.which ever• way he moved, those dreadful
eyes still followed him.
The worthy doctor, more dead than alive,
now began to beat a quick retreat, without,
however, losing sight of the object of his ter
rot; he retreated step by step, one hand hold
ding the candle, the other extended in search
of the door, which he at
.length gained; but
there is no escape, the spectre. has. risen and
followed him, whose livid features, added to
the lateness of the hour and the stillness of
the night seem to conspire- to deprive the
poor doctor of the little courage he has left;
his strength fails, the candle falls from his
hand, and the terrible scene is now in corn
plete darkness. -'
The good doctor has, however, gained his
apartment„ and thrown himself on his bed;
but the fearful Spectre has still followed him
—it has caught and seized hold of his
feet with both hands. As this climax of ter
ror the doctor' loudly exclaimed, "Whoever
you are, leave me !" At. this the spectre let
go his hold, and moaned feebly these words:
"Pity, good hangman - I have pity on me !
Thegood doctor now discovered the myste
ry, and regained by little and little his com
posure. He explained to, the criminal, who
had so narrowly escaped death, who he was,
and' prepared to call up 'some - of his family,,
. yeu, then, wish to destroy me'?" ex
claimed the criminal. "If I am discovered,
my adventure will become public, and I shall_
be brought to- the scaffoldra Second time. In
the name of humanity save me from death.
The good doctor then rose and procured a
light; he muffled 'his unexpected - Visitor in an

elegant aparment, where a most charming
woman and two lovely children welcomed
him in the most friendly' manner; which re
ception surprised him the more, coming from
persons he had never before net.
After dinner the merchant having taken
him into - his counting-house seized his hand,
and having pressed it with friendly warmth,
said to him,—
"Do you not recollect me'?"
"No," said the doctor.
"Well; then, I remember you well, and
your features will never be obliterated from
my memory—for to you I owe my life. Do
you not remember the poor deserter 1 On
leaving you I went to Holland. Writing a
good hand, and being a good accountant, I
soon obtained a situation as clerk in a mer
chant's office. My good conduct and zeal
soon gained for me the confidence and zeal
of my employer and the affections of his
daughter. When he retired from business, I
succeeded him, and became his son-in-law ;
bnt without you, without your generous as
sistance, I should not have lived to.enjoy so
much happiness. Generous man ! consider
henceforth my house,!my fortune, and myself
as wholly your's."
The kind doctor was .affected even to tears;
and both these happy beings participated in
the most delightful expression of their feel
ings which were soon shared by the mer
chant's interesting family who came to join
Petrified Euman Bodies-8 Veritable
Mr. George Lane, who-has charge of the
"Woodland Cemetery," near this city, was
called upon, the other diy, by Mr. G. P. Loy
who resides about three mile'S southeast of
Germantown, in this county, to move the re
mains of his first wife, a grand child, and
and other bodies, from a family burying
ground upon his farm, and inter them in his
lot in the "Germantown Cemetery." --The
burying ground was made many years ago,
upon the site of a little bill, in a field some
distance from the residence of Mr. L., in ac
cordance with the custom in the Miami Val
ley-in that day, when almost every proper
ty-holder had a burying ground upon his
"The first grave °permed was that of Mr.
Loy's first wife who was interred about twen
ty-four years ago. On reaching 'the coffin ;
it was found to be perfect—at least to ap
pearance—and the men proceeded to unearth
it, and raise it to , the mouth of the grave.—
This they soon ascertained to be a 'difficult
task, and the, small force ,engaged at it was
compelled to procure assistance., The earth
at this time was completely taken from
around the coffin, and removed from under
the coffin, as far as it could be reached, but
still it was found difficult to even move it.
The assistance of six men was at length
obtained, and it required all the strength they
were in possession of,to raise the coffin from
its bed, and place it upon the ground by the
side of the grave ! It was supposed, by those
engaged in the disinterment, that The coffin
was filled with water, on account of its ex
treme heaviness, but after it. was taken from
the grave, it was measurably dry, and no
signs• of water could be discovered. The
lid was then, with difficulty removed, when
it was ascertained that the body was in an
excellent state of preservation. Upon a close
examination it was found that the remains
would not give way under the pressure of a
piece of board which otte of the gentlemen
placed upon , the corpse ; and this strange cir
cumstance led to • still further investigation.
The shroud; and, indeed, all the covering
which. was upon the bodY, 'at the time Of in
terment,, twenty-four years ago, had disap
peared—not a -vestige of them remained:—.
The body was perfect, ' . except the right leg, '
from the knee to
-:the -ankle.•joint, where the
flesh Seemed' to have wasted away, and lay
at the bottOrn of the coffin in "a substance re
sembling sand. With this exception of de
cay, the body and limbs exhibited the same
perfectness of , exterior they did . when life
and animation were in the body.
The body, indeed, had been petrified ! It
was by some strange quality of the earth
and other causes of, which we can form no
conjecture, turned into stone of a drab, or
more properly, speaking, flesh color ; and the
chisel of the artist might imitate, but could,
not make,so close a resemblance of the "hu
man form &Tine." The smile which lighted
np.her countenance at the •moment when
,deathgently untied the cord' which bound
the soul to clay, still seemed to linger upon
the face of stone ! The light of the eye was
gone, and. they were sunken—but• from the
sightless orbs, the soul seemed to look out up
on those who.were viewing with astonishnient
that human form of ,stone. -
The grave, of the grandchild of Mr. Loy
w'as,next 'entered, and, the coffin exhumed.—
It was also found to be heaVy, and when
opened, the corps •presented, much the same
appearance as that of 'Mrs...:Lay. It was not
as perfect,however, althOgh petrified. The
body and limbs had• about the same appear-
ance they had in life, but the exterior bad
lost its' life like color. The most remarka
ble thifig connected witit4he remains of the
child was, that the hair upon the petrified
skull was to all appearance the same as life.
Mr. Lape clipped a small ringlet from the
crown and tied it into a knot. The other
bodies - which were exhumed—one or two in
number—were only partly petrified, and
were mostly decayed.—Dayton Empire.
If I Had Wealth!
It is_ a frequent feeling, if not utterance,
"Oh if I had wealth, how much pleasure it
would afford me to contribute largely to all
benevolent and religious objects l") To one
thus expressing himself, an aged Christian
replied : I am not quite so sure of that, and
that for several reasons :
First, You do not seem to realize that God
demands a charity commensurate with what
we have, and not with that which we have
not ; -and hence, if we do not come up to this
real standard, it is not probable that we
would to an imaginary one. -
Second, It is. the willing heart which is
most'-'.commendable in the sight of God ; and
if the heart refuses when our means are
small, it is vain to excuse our delinquency by
a premise -of generosity in circumstances
which may never occur.
Third, You forget that, by God's blessing
the mite of the poor may go much farther
than the affluent gifts of the rich.
Fourth, If the love of Christ does not im
pel Us to show our, attachment to Him under
one arrangement of circumstances, what
warrant have we to believe that it will be
come influential in a different position ?
Arid, Fifth, Charity is like a plant, which
must be cultivated before it will grow. If
we ao not then begin early to give it our at
tention, it will die out. To postpone giving
until we can give lar,geiy is equivalent to an
indefinite postponement. The lust of accu
mulation is 'moat' unfriendly to the growth of
charity ; if our charity be reluctant when we
are poor, it will not likely be very prompt
when we grow rich.

CURE TOR Et/ANS.—The American Ag
riculturalist says, "of all, applications for a
burn, , we believe there are none equal to a
simple covering of common wheat
This is alwayeat-hand, and while it requires
no skill in using, it produces the most aston
ishing effects. The moisture produced upon
the surface of a slight or deep burn, is at
once absorbed by the flour, and forms a paste
which shuts out the air. As long as the-flu
id matters continue flowing, they are ab
sorbed and thus presented from irritation, as
they would do if kept from passing off by
oily or resinous application, while the great
er.the amount of these , absorbed by the flour
the thicker the protecting covering. Anoth
er advantage of the flour , covering is that
next to the surface it is moist and flexible.
It can also be readily washed off, without
further irritation in moving. It may be oc
casionally washed off very carefully when it
has became Matted and dry, and a new cov

Deep cultivation, draining, drawing, ditch

The farmer's Home should not be so much
his castle, as his sanctuary. Over its thresh
hold, disorders and discontents should never
be allowed to step. Harmony, order, love
and peace, as well as plenty, should reign
within the farmer's abode, Making it a para

desires as may be ; where the intellect, the
taste, and the affections may seek and find
their appropriate and full gratification.—
What desolation, nay, what wants abound
within those walls, where merely animal
desires are cloyed with. material profusion,
to the exclusion of that higher food of the
spiritual nature, which is, in fact,:tbe "bread
of life !" There, the physical -- rn'an may
grow and fatten, and rejoice ; ; in its ease, and
its indolence, with a scat

God-spark, faints, tarnishes, - and dies.
The fields are the places where the head,
aided by the strong arm, should triumph in
material achievements. In the true Home,

Wealth may build palaces to shelter gilded
misery. Poverty, by making a true home
in an unpretending cottage, hallows itself,
and shames the power of gold.
It is astonishiag with what facility the cul

into high spiritual individualities. A tree, a

the wound by lawful wedlock, he made pre,
posals to the object of his affections,

ther, Mr. Jacob Wyant,being a prudent man,
of, much foresight, required the said John
Lescher to enter into bonds of five hundred
dollars, conditioned that the said John-Les
cher should live with hi's' wife and treat her .
as a kind and affectionate husband should
do; but the parties, after living together some
months, 'separated, and this suit was brought
to recover tire amount of the bond. The case
was first tried at the, last April term of ttie
Franklin Court, when Judge Kimmel decided
the bond to be invalid. The 'case was car
ried to the Supreme Court, and it was deci
ded that the bond "was good and valid, and
in accordance with the law." The case,
therefore, came up again -in the Franklin
county courts, when the jury found a verdict
for the plaintiff of $979 16. The result of
this suit may give a valuable suggestion to

Gone Fight over It.
I have a friend, whose ready wit often en
livens the social circle ; and sometimes also
faithfully serves the cause of truth. One
Sabbath morning, as he stepped from his
house to go to church, he met a stranger
driving a heavily loaded wagon through the
town. He turned upon him, stopped, lifted
both hands, and stood in a tragic attitude, ga
zing upon the ground beneath the vehicle
and exclaimed : "There !—you are going
right over it ! You have gone right over
!" The traveller hastily gathered up his
reins, drew in his horses, came to a dead

their heavy weight. But

The Cleveland - (0.) City Fact sass that one
of the most pleasing things exhibited at their
late County Fair, was a lot of brook trout
artificially bred by Drs. Garlic and Ackley,
whose labors in this line, we have heretofore
noticed. They showed several broods of fish
in different stages of growth, and have de
monstrated that it is just as easy to grow fish
as fowls, or any other description of food.—
We hope all agricultural societies will take a
hint from this, and offer premiums for such
a show of fish as will best illustrate the fact
to farmers that they can grow the cheapest
food ever Produced for man upon their farms
whereever they have natura 1 water, or Can
make artificial ponds. Let us have the pre
miums "for, the best show of fish artificially
produced-upon any farm." It is a matter of
very serious consideration, when fresh fish
sells here at the same price per pound of beef,
pork and mutton.
