two feet at thc bottou,. The flexibility of
the usually rigid dead is produced by put
ting a powder' called Dosia, into the ears,
mouth and nostrils of the corpse. Thc
following is related by an eye-witness:
An exprimcnt took place in the month
of October, 1783, when the cold was very
severe. A 3'oang Dutchman having died
in our factory, at Desima, I directed the
ph'siciau to cause the body fo be washed,
and left all night exposed to the air, on
a tabic placed near an open window, that
it might become completely stiff. Next
morning several Japanese, some of the
ff!f.nrv. nnd mvself. want to examine the
corpse, which was as hard as a peice of
wood. One of the interpreters, named
Zcuby, drew from his bosom a sautocfc,
or pecket-book, and took out an oblong
paper, filled with a coarse powder resem
bling sand. This was the famous Dosia
powder. He put a pinch iuto thc ears,
another pinch into the, nostrils, and a
third iuto the mouth, and presently,
whether from the effect of this drug, or
some trick which I could not detect, the
which had before been crossed
over the breast, dropped of themselves,
and in less than twenty minutes by the
watch the body recovered all its flexibili-
A Rat Slory.
A neighbor, entitled to implicit credence,
relates a story of the cunning and intelli
gence of a rat, more remarkable we think
than any we have listened to. He says,
being plauged with rats about his barn,
he made various attempts to secure some
of them with a trap, but without success.
The trap used was made of wire, and
was so constructed that on a rat entering
and nibbling at the bait, the trap would
spring and cage the intruder. The man,
upon frequenth' finding the bait gone,
concluded he would watch the trap. Soon
half a dozen rats made their appearanc,
and among them one that seemed to have
more years than the others. He advan
ced slowly and cautiously towards the
trap, and when the others would make a
move as if intending to rush to the bait,
the old fellow would wag his tail, and
irr trniilfl f?s 1 1 lipJiinrl him.
After viewini the trap closely, the
oM fellow approached the back part of it
and gctteng on it, shook tbe raided part
until thc trap sprung and then put a paw
through one of the openings between the
wires, and taking tho bait off, made his
retreat with it. The same thing was re
peated the second time thc same afternoon
Our neighbor, determined not to be out-
generallcd by a rat, set a common trap
in a keg, and covered it with Indian meal.

A friend of ours, who possesses a quiet
vein of humor, was recently on a visit to
Mawland. and relates an amusing account
of a 'colored chorus witnessed by the rc
lator at one of the African churches. 1
The masculine darkies were arranged
'like four-apd -twenty blackbirds all in a
row,' on one side, and the females on the
other. The lattcr commenced the chorus
with 'Oh! for a man oh! for a man oh!
for a mansion in the skies;' to which the ,
