For the past five years she has suffered al

dying with consumption. Some two
weeks since a German,physician from Lis
bon; Linn county, being in town, was re
pleated to make an examination into her
case to see if any remedy could be devised
to relieve her intense sufferings. The
physician visited her and became at once
satisfied that there was a living animal
within her stomach. - On last Thursday
the starvation process was begun and conk.
firmed for five days. lit.tle or -no nourish

animal repeatedly moved upward add in
to the throat, producing terrible and al
most fatal strangulation, and making it
necessary to administer salt to Arive it
downward. At each times the lower part
of the throat would be press'd outward

on Monday last the attempt was made
to dislodge the loathsome creature by
placing a pan of heated milk near the pa
tient's month and permitting her to in
hale the steam. A. poultice of onions and
garlic was applied to the stomach, but,
through misunderstanding, the onions
were conked and their strength thereby
mostly destroyed. The experiment, how
ever, was tried, but the .animal moved up
only a snort distance, a green slime being
emitted from , the mouth. The patient is
greatly prostrated by abstinence and ter
rible suffering, but another effort will soon
be made to relieve her, although it 'kerns
almost certain that the animal, whatever
it is, has grown so large as to make its
egress through the throat impossible.
We understand that the patient believes
her tormenter to be a snake ! The case is
attracting great interest, and any new" de
velopments will be carefully noted for the
benefit of our readers.
MARRIAGE OF FIRST Cousms.—Tbe Com
missioners of the Kentucky institution for
the education' and training of feeble mind
ed children have just made a report to
the Legislature, in which they call atten
tion to the practice, which is quite com
mon in Kentuaky, of the 'marriage of
blood relations. They add their testimo
ny io the abundant evidence already col
lected by physicians and philanthropists,
that a large per centage 7 oLdeaf mutes and
of the blind, a limited- per centage of lu
natics, and no doubt a much larger one
than either of feeble-minded or idiotic
children, are the offspring of the mar
riage-of first cousins. The charitable in
stitutions of the State are all the time fill
ed with children.whose parents are so•re
lated—sometimes as many as four from
one faMily. It is a fearful penalty to
which persons so related render them
selies liable by forming the matrimonial
relation, and which' they, iri • nearly every
instance, incur. The commissioners urge
that,. as the State is compelled to support
the issues of these unwise unions, they
should be prohibited by law.

In the latter part of 1826, a . man named
William Morgan, who tired in Batavia, N.
Y ,with a very good looking, yellow-haired
wife, threatened to expose the secrets of
Masonry, of which order lie was a mem
ber; and it was currently reported that he
had published a book for the purpose of
carrying out his threat. Soon after he dis
appeared suddenly and mysteriously, to
the consternation of his neighbors and the
deep grief of his wife, who, however, soon
afterwards consoled herself with another
husband. Morgan's disappearance created
intense excitement, and raised a strong
feeling against secret societies, the Masons
being suspected of having disposed of
their refractory brother somewhere in the
unfathomable depths of Lake Ontario.
Thurlow Weed was at that time publish.
log a little paper at Rocheste& and
was test going to the dogs. Seeing afphance
to make something out of the MorAn ex
citement, he jumped aboard, gavil his pa
per a new start under the iamb of the
Anti-Masonic Enquirer, and took a prom
inent part in building up 'an anti-Masonic
party in Western New York. On the eve
of the next general election an old fellow
named Tim Monroe was found drowned in
Oak Orchard Creek. The suggestive mind
of Weed instantly .hit upon the policy of
passing poor Tin:Cod - for the missing Mor
gan. The report was set afloat and-the
body brought to Itoohoster, when it was
discovered that Tim wore a heavy beard,
while Morgan was a smooth-faced man.
This was to Weed a trifling difficulty. The
mortal remains of old Tim were kept cons
cealed from all eyes except those eta
faithful few until he had been closely
shaved, when he was publicly exhibited
.and passed off for Morgan. Seine of the
more timid who were in the plot expressed
fears of discovery of the fraud, but were
told by Weed that old Tim would make
g's good enough Morgan until - after elec
tion,",o a saying that has since passed into
a proverb. It was this operation upon the
corpse of Tim Monroe that gave to Thur.
low Weed the title of the. State barber, al
though of late-years many persons hii've
supposed that he obtained that nickname
from his shaving operations in the lobby.
The anti-Masonic excitement made Weed
the leader of a powerful party in Western
New York, arid laid the foundation for the
subsequent political success of William H.
Seward.—.Nl Y. Berald.
How the People are Bobbed
The Cameron Legislature which has
just adjourned, gave evidence of the bold
est system of robbery that baa ever been
perpetrated upon any body of people. The
modus operandi of pocket picking, highway
robbery, burglary, garroting, confiscating
postage stamp, &c., Is in every respect
commendable when compared with the
manner in which Republican legislators
filched the hard earnings of our tax pay
ers from the treasury. In one instance,
George Dellaven, Jr., Representative from
Philadelphia, brought his son here—a
mere child—had him sworn in as an offi
cer, and sent bim off to school the next
day. The boy was never on duty alsingle
day—in truth, he dill not return until the
day previous to the adjournment, when he
came to draw ;909 of the people's money.
Senator George Connell, reputed to be
worth $250,000, also brought his son here
(as he has for four ot five sessions_paity r to
be a recipient of some of the !dealings.
Young Connell was sworn in, and the last
that was seen of him in this vicinity was
at the Goldsboro pnze fight, on the day
Geary was elected, until April 9th, when
he too came for his gobble I Senator Gra
ham brought his son here, and bad him
sworn in as a clerk, but, to his credit be it
said, he remained at his post and rendered
the State some service. Wo do not advert
to these facts with a view• of awakening a
spirit of resistance to such infamous trans
actions—because the people still love pa
tience passionately—but simply to show
the consistency of Deacon Bergner's de
fence and laudation- of Cameron's honest
Legislature. A host of double-winged iron
clad angels 'hovering over the actions
of such men would but goad them on to
deeper damnation. The chasm between
them and the demands and entreaties of
an oppressed people can never be closed,
hence the desperation evinced by these
heartless acamps.—Harrisburg Patriot.

The St. Vincent (Canada) Witness,, re

named Mary James, for murder. When
the chaplain, who attended the wretched
woman to the scaffold, ha 3 bidden her
farewell, he drew back. She also drew
back, but the movement could scarcely
have been perceived, for the order was
given, the drop fell, and the culprit was
seen standing unharined on the platform.
Her eyes, from the beginning, were very
imperfectly bandaged. Looking down,
she drew back furtheifrom the trap, and;
her arms being free she removed the piece
of muslin with which her eyes were coy.
From this time, she appeared to dread
the trap, having seen the danger, and she
could not be induced to go forward. The
provost marshal thensummoned the tarn-
keys, who, with the hangman; were con
strained to ,use force to get her on the
trap door.. 'he instinct of self-preserva
tion seemed to nerve ber with strength,
and a 'scuffle ensued on the platform of
the gallows for ten minutes, when idle

on one of the sidel'arge beams of the gal

lay motionless. She was then pushed -
over on the trap door, which was pulled
and she went 'through head foremost.
She never made a struggle or movement .

VULGAR LsNousox.—There is as much

A young man who allows himself to make
use of one vulgar or profane word has not

there in such a way that they can be re
