Mennouites Lavs petitioned Con

land grant privilege. A member of
that church named Cornelius JaDz'en
stated in a letter to Col. Forney of the j

glala. Buckingham county, s'a'ys" the Lynch

" We bsd satisfied oar cariosty, and
were about to leave the cave, when be
hind a large rock, or rather a spur of.
the main rock whicH formed the bottom,
my son discovered t larger passage than
any we nau oeiore ween. l nis we
tered,and after following some six ori
seven feet! emerged into an apartment
of immense site. Tbe light of our
torches falling upon the stalactites re
vealed a scene of btauty which was
fairly daxxling. The aite of this apart
ment I cannot tell, as the roof and
sides were lost in darkness. We pen
etrated to a considerable distance, keep
ing close to one of the sides, so that
we might easily find our way back, and
would have gone further bnt for finding
in a recess some seventy feet from where
we entered, lying directly nnder a shel
ving rock, the body of man wrapped
in some dingy,- cloth-like substance.
We did not know it was tbe body of a
man at first, and were not positive it
was until we bad gotten it outside the
Mr. Boyd discovered the body, and
when we moved it from nnder tbe rock
my son found several large and beauti
ful pebbles where the body had lain,
and a small round vessel, some four
inches in diameter and about two inches
in height, shaped very much like an
ink stand with a handle. This and the
stones or pebbles be pot m bis pecket.
We took tbe body and at once went out
of the cave. The cloths with which it
was wrapped were very rottesj, and
when we bad laid the body down after
leaving the cave, they had nearly all
been rubbed from it. W hat were left
crumbled like burnt paper. We brushed
tbe body clean and found it to be the
dried-up remains of a man who had
evidently been ef wore than ordinary
sise, for I found it to be by actual mea- j
sureineot five feet nine inches in length.
It is dried and withered something like
dried meat, only tbe skin is tightly
drawn over it. It is hard to the touch,
and wherever there is a wrinkle it is
hard like parchment.
' It is impossible to farm any idea of
what color tbe man was, or what his
features were l.ke. The body now is a
sort of smoky color, and the hair,
though there is very little of it, is in
tensely black. Oil tbe second finger
of each hand and on the thumb of the
right were large square rings, tound on
the inside to fit the finger. These rings
and the small vessel I have referred to
were evideutlv composed of gold with j
a large quantity of some kind of alloy
which gave them a very peculiar ap
pearance. " We took the body to my house,
where it is now. hen we arrived
with it there, my son bethought him of
the pebbles he had found, and showed
them to os. There are seven in all ;
five are richly colored, and Ctolike any
thing else I have ever seen, xhe other
two I think are diamonds" ; they pos
sess in a very high degree the powers
of reflection and refraction, and are
about the size of a cornfield pea.'
A Dltre9lnf Case of Hydro-
A despatch from New York, nnder
date of the 5th inst., relates the follow
ing distressing case of hydrophobia :
Mrs. Ada Noyes, a young actress,
died at ber residence, No. 1G6 fileekef
street, this morning, from hydrophobia.
Tbe unfortunate lady arrived in this
city about a month ago from Charles
ton, S. C. ; she had with ber a little pet
dog, which bit her on the nose on tbe
30 tb of January. But little notice of
tbe occurrence was taken until Sunday
last, when tbe dreaded symptoms pre
sented themselves. Tbe best medical
aid was called in, but Mrs. Noyes grew
rapidly worse, and died this morning in
Coroner Kessler held an inquest, at
which Dr. Elliott testified that she came
to bim, on tbe SOth of January, with
her face lacerated from tbe bite of a
dog. lie cauterized the wound with
nitrate of silver. She made good re
covery, and appeared on tbe stage
within ten days. On Monday night,
while p'aying at Rochester with Lu
cille Western, she Was taken off the
stage insensible, and then took the train
for New York. Witness met ber .at
the Forty-second street depot. She
was then delirious and presented a
ghastly appearance. She waa nnder
the impression that people iu the train
wanted to kill ber. She Could cot swal
low, and breathed only with tbe great
est difficulty. The cold afron ber face
while riding in the coach caused her
the greatest agony. At times she
prayed to be killed. Finally abe be
came exhausted, and died at 9:30
o'clock last night. Mrs. Noyes was
known as Ada Clare previous to her
marriage with Mr. Noyes, and was well
known in her profession, having been
quite popular here some twelve years
ago, but for some years past she has not
been much on tbe stage.

The Phrenological Journal says: Of
course our agricultural readers have all
heard of the wonderful sails of choice
cattle which took place last fall at the
New York Mills, near Utica; N. Y.
The cattle were sold sit auction; and
prices were realized which tax our
credulity when we appreciate their vast
ness. One hundred and eleven animals
were offered for competion among the
buyers, many of whom were from Eng
land, and the aggregate of the sales ei-
j iei $380 00,j
The breeds which brought tbe latest;
. . ,,M fc.n n.,1......
subis were those known as Duchesses
and Oxfords, and tbe first sold, known
as the 2d Duke of Oneida, a three
year old bull, brought $12,000 Tbe
cow, known as the 1st Duchess of Onei
da, was next offered, and, after an ex
traordinarily exciting contest, was
knocked down to Lord Skelmersdale, of
England, for $30,600. Subsequently
other cattle of the same strain followed
at $19,000 and $35,000, and the in
terest eliminated with the sale of tbe
8th Dacbert of Geneva, tbe dam of the
1st Duchess of Oneida, which was
bought by Mr. R. Pavin Davis, vt
Gloucestershire, England, for the un
precedented snm of $40,600.
The Duchess stock was imported
from England in 1353, and kept in a
state of perfect parity in Duchess
Connty by tbe importer.
We infer from this experiment of Mr.
Campbell, of the New lurk Mills, that

such a sum is five times as much as the
return to ber owner of tbe best milch

Durham, breed is deemed the best

Captain Fraser, who lately brought away
from the Earnscleugh Cave, in the south of
New Zealand, tho entire neck of a dot
with the skin of the gigantic bird still on it,
has been lecturing on the subject of bis
discovery. Tbe floor of the cave, he states,
is covered with a fine dust, in which lie
bones aud many rolls resembling pieces of
tbe bark of a tree, but which, on examina
tion, proved to bo fragments of the reddish-brown
moa skin. While he was search
ing among these, his companion found un
der a ledge the distinct remains of a l.ir.-.-
nest of grass with the fragments of
and bonts ofyonng birds iu it ; from winch i
it appears that the extinct bird not only
took ref uge in but bred in such places of
cone raiment as this now famous cave.
