MARIETTA, SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 26, 1866,
A Woman in Nan's Clothes-
Or, An Extraordinary Discovery.
A few months ago an announcement
appeared in some'of the Eng:jab news=
papers, of the death, at thfi age of seven
ty-two years, of a Dr. James Barry, an
officer on the medieil staff of the British
,
rmy. The announcement was seam-
panied by a statement of the fact that
subsequent to the demise of the doctor,
it was discovered that he was a female.
A. brief account was given of Dr. Barry's
career• in . the military service, which ex
tended over a. period of fifty years, spent
in different parte of the world, but prin-
cipally in India and the British West
Indies. The doctor, it appears, °had
been regularly educated for the medical
profession, had entered the army when
quite young, and, purely by dint of pro.
fessional skill in surgery, had risen
through various grades to' a very high
position on the staff.
The writer of this sketch was person
ally acquainted with Dr. Barry when he
was stationed at one oi the West India
stands, and it has struck him that a few
reminiscences of the doctor may prove
interesting to the public.
The doctor's personal appearance was
rather remarkable, and his habits singu•
larly eccentric. HO was diminutive in
size ( the masculine pronoun is used for
the sake of convenience ; besides which
we speak now of the doctor in his as-
slimed character) and effeminate in ap•
pearance r the face being quite smooth,
the complexion pale, and the hands and,
feet smalliand delicately shaped. His
voice was "soft and low"—according to
high authority "an excellent thing in
woman,"—and he possessed remarkable
powers of conversation, He was of an
irritable disposition, however—an infir
mity which had frequently brought him
into collision with his brother officers in
the earlier period of his career ; and the
writer had it from his own lips that he
had fought a duel, and had on several
occasions acted as second in hostile en
counters of this kind.
Doctor Barry, when the writer made
his acquaintanoe, was abqut s i xty years
old, and in rather feeble health. Re re
sided at an out-of-the-way plane, in the
s übarbs of the town; and altbough he
occasionally—but very rareli—went into
society, he saw no compaq at his house.
His only domestic was an elderly black
man, who discharked the duties of cook,
gropes and coachman. Two or three
Wool a week a woman vidnt to the house
to scrub the floors and dust the furni
ture ;• but her work was always done
during the doctor's absence from borne
as he objected to have any female about
the place while he was there.
He was not without companions, how
ever, for he kept two dogs, several eats,
a parrot, and three or four goats about
him, to all of which he seemed very
much attached. One of the dogs—a
poodle—he nursed with tender care, and
when he rode out in his carriage, either
on business or for an airing, it was always
to be seen by his side. He 14}4,11 vege
tarian ; but meals were regularly served
up at his table for his feline and canine
pets, whom he helped to choice bite
with his own hands. The goats be kept
for the sake of their milk, an article of
whieh he was very fond, and 'these, like
the dogs and cats, had the freedom of
the house, walking in and out at their
pleasure. He never tasted strong drink
of any kind, assigning as a reason for his
abstinence, and confining himself to veg.
etable food, that the taint of insanity was
hereditary in his family; and there was,
consequently, danger to him in a stimu
lating diet. The doctor's peculiarities
and eccentricities were noised over the
whole Own, and everybody laughed at
them ; but no one ever dreamed of • his
real sex. About eighteen months after
this singular being had returned to .
England from the West Indies, he died,
and khan transpired the well-kept secret
of a long life—Dr. Barry' was a woman

the mystery aitaehing itself to his strange
history. Among the effects of the de

which was somewhat unexpected—she
prePared a letter of instructions for the
guidance of a legal gentleman in the
colony—a Mend of hersin disposing of
her affairs, in the event of her dying in
that part of the world. _ . In that letter
she gave directions that she should, be
buried in the same clothes in which she
died, without the body being disturbed
in any way whatever after death, and
that sepulture should take place with all
possible speed. The reason for the
strange injunction is obvious ; but she
had neglected to take the same precau
tion on returning to England, and so her
secret was revealed: ,
Ctriqbus Goon FRIDAY Caarom.--Large
numbers assembled in the church yard
of St. Barthol'omeW the Great, Smith
field, for the purpose of witnessing a
very ancient and curious ceremony. It
appears' that some centuries ago a lady
who resided in the parish left by her will
certain property to forma fund.for the
preaching-of a sermon on Good Friday,
and to give to forty poor widows of the
parish sixpence each every year forever,
and it - was directed that the same should
be placed on the tombstone over her
grave. rNo provision, however. having
been made for keeping the stone in re
pair, it has so gone to decay that not a
vestige remains. The money is now,
therefore, every year deposited on the
ground where the coffin is supposed'to
have been placed. This ceremony was
gone through in the presence of the
Rev. J. Abbiss, M. A., thesector of the
parish, the churchwardens, and the per
sons who were attracted by the strange
ness of the proceedings. Afterwards
there was service in the church, with -a
sermon, as directed by the long deceased
lady. It is more than probable, howev
er, that - there would have been a sermon
on a day held in such high honor by the
Church, whether the thoughtful lady had
directed it-,or-not. \

Di 3 AXING TUB BEST OF IT.—A French
woman, however plain, thinks it worth
while'to consult the becoming ; and the
contrast between downright ugliness
studied, alleviated, and made fresh and
trim, and the same ugliness abandoned
to its 'fate—as we have the opportunity
not seldom of seeing it—is often more
effective, as conveying a moral triumph,
than that between morn prettiness and
its opposite. It is a standing, walking
moral—a lesson that things are naver so
bad but that it is worth while to make
the best of them. People's habits' in
this respect very much depend on 'the
vfew they take of the present.
A MAN or I-nizas.—A correspondent
of the Chicago Republican has a curious
analysis of Mr. Johnson's speech on the
18th inst., to the so-called soldiers and
sailors, and it appears that in that
speech "he used the personal pronoun
172 Aimee, and me 14 times ; the pos
sessive pronoun my 14 times; we, 38
times ; us, 11 times ; our,. 6 times ; he,
referring to himself, 11 times, and his
twice—making, in all, 168 references to
himself in a speech containing not far
from 3,000 words, or one in every 18
words.
WISE SAYINOS.—Have nothing to do
with an angry man.
Take heed of whom and to whom you
speak.
Rise from the table with an appetite.
Belies° not all you hear, nor report
all you believe.
Remember thine own faults, and be
not severe upon those of other people.

Chinese. Juggling.
While walking on the banks of the
river, this afternoon, near the junction
With the Grand Canal, I saw some clev
er juggling. A boy, about fourteen
years Of age, performed the needle trick
in an exceedingly expert manner. Be
commenced by sticking a dozen of com
mon sewing needles upon the end of a
piece of' wood, and showed them to the
lookers on. I examined one of them,
and found it to be an ordinary sharp=
pointed needle. Having done this, he
placed thein, one after the other, be
tween-hie lips, and sucked them slowly
into - his mouth; and, to all appearance
swallowed them. He then walked
around,the circle, with his mouth open,
and allowed the people to look Into it ;
but nothing was to be seen of the
needles. He then took a crystal ball,
about the size' of a walnut, and, placing
it between his teeth, drew it into his
mouth, and, to all appearance, swallowed
it—al he opened his mouth, and it was
not visible. He then made an effort as
if bringing it up from his stomach, and
ejected it from ' his mouth—repeating
this performance several times. He
next took a long piece of thread, passed
it up one nostril and brought the end
out of his month, moving it backward
and forward by the tee ends—the one
hanging out of his nostril and the other
out of his month. He then pulled the
string out altogether, introduced it
again into his nostril by snuffing it in,
and seemed to swallow the whole piece
of string. He again swallowed the
glass ball, ejected it, and immediately
afterward drew the thread out of his
mouth with the needles strung upon it:
This is really a clever trick, showing
wonderful powers of stowing things away
in the mouth—the more so, as he was
talking the whole time. A great amount
of skill is 'exhibited, and small de
gree of risk must be run in performing
this trick, as Mr. Lockhart mentions a
case that occurred at Shangkae, where
the needles that bad been introduced in
to the mouth; ready threaded, slipped
down and became impacted into the
back part of the throat, and caused death
the fifth day afterward.
A Novm WAG . ER.—An amusing story
is going the round of the Paris clubs.
It appears that a short time ago a foreign
prince made a heavy bet that he would
be arrested by the police without com
mitting any offense whatever, or ip any
way provoking the authorities. The bet
having been taken by a member of the
Imperial Club, the prince *vent to one
of the most aristocratic cafes in Paris,
dressed in a battered hat, a ragged
blouse, and boots all in holes, and sitting
down at one of the tables, ordered a cap
of coffee. The waiters, however, paid
no attention to so suspicious looking a
customer, upon wiilch the prince put hie
hand into his pocket and showed a bun
dle of bank notes. The proprietor then
ordered the coffee to be served, sending
meanwhile to the nearest police station
for a sergeant de villa. The prince was
duly arrested and taken to the Commis
sary of Police, where he stated who he
was, and was afterwards taken to the
gentleman with whom he made the bet
to prove his identity. A similar story
was told'at Vienna sometime ago of a
Hungarian Prince Seander, M. de Met =
ternich's son-in-law, who, in order to
make his arrest quite sure, took the
bank notes out of his boots.
or What everybody says must be
true, is an old proverb. And it is a fact
beyond dispute that all tell one, story
about the almost miraculous cures per
formed by 0043'8 .Dyspepsia Cure.
Chronic and obstinate cases of Dyspep
sia of long standing will surely give way
to its curative powers. Indigestion,
sick headache, heart burn, cramps, pains
and colic, in either stomach or bowels,
souring or rising of food, constipation,
general debility, flatulency, cannot exist
when Coe's Dyspepsia Cure is used.

A. prominent Bachelor politician re
marked to a lady that soapstone was ex
celleut to keep the feet warm in bed.
"Yee," said the young lady, who had
been un attractive listener, "but some
gentlemen hatre an improvement on that
which yon know nothing about." The
bachelor turned pale and maintained a
wistful silence.
A servant, newly engaged, presented
to his master, one morning, a pair of
boots, the leg of one which was much
longer than the other. " How comes it,
you rascal, that these boots are not of
the•same length 7"
" I really don't know, sir ; bat what
bothere me the most° is, that the pair
down stairs are in the same fix."
" Madam, your boy cannot pass at
half faie ; he is too large," said the con
ductor of a railway train, which had been
long defained on the road by the snow.
"He may be too large now," replied, the
matron, "but he was small enough then
we started." The conductor gave in,
and the boy passed for half fare.
A Correspondent tells of a youngster
who on being admonished by his mother
not to take all the hash from the dish,
because he should leave some for mut
tons, replied, after looking around the
table, "Well, I don't see any manners
here to eat it 1"
"Do you know the prisoner, Mr.
Wiggins ?" "Yes, to the bone."
"What is hie character?" " Didn't
know he bad any." " Does he live near
yon" "So near that he has only spent
$5 for fire wood In eight years."
" Didn't you tell me you could hold
the plow ?" said the farmer to an Irish-
man he bad taken on trial. "Be aisy,
no," says Pat. " How could I hould it
an' two horses pullin' it away ? Just
stop the craturs and hould it for ye.''
A fellow being awakened by the clerk
of a steamer, was told that he must not
occupy the berth with his boots. He
very considerately replied, "Oh, the
bugs won't hurt 'ern, I guess ; they're an
old pair."
It is a vain thing for you to stick your
finger in the water, and pulling it out,
look for a hole: it is equally vain to
suppose that, however large a apace you
occupy, the world will miss you, when
you die.
"Can you tell," asked a blooming lees
of a suitor once, " what ship carries
more . assengers than the Great East
ern ?" "Well, miss, really I don't think
I can." " Why, it is courtship," replied
the maiden with a conscious blush.
A German writer says a young girl is
a fishing-red. The eyes are the hook,
the smile the bait, the lover the gudgeon
the marriage the batter in which he is
fried. What will the girls say of that
German ?
"I think you must allow," said a pom
pons gentleman, "that my jests are very
fair." " Sir, your jests are like yourself,"
was the quick retort ; " their age ren
ders them respectable."
In Cork, Ireland, a short time ago,
the crier of the court endeavored to sup
press the crowd by exclaiming, "All ye
blackguards that isn't lawyers, lave the
coon."
Law and Clothes.—The difference be
tween a suit of clothes and a suit at law
is this—one. provides you with pockets,
and the other empties them.
What precious stone should have
been placed at the gate of Eden after

This world and the next resembles
the east and the west ; you cannot draw
near to one without turning your back
on the other.
The last-toast—the Ladies : may their
virtues exceed even the magnitude of
their skirts, while their faults are still
smaller than their bonnets.
