THE WONDERS or THE BRAIN.-One of the
most inconceivable things in the nature of
the brain is that the organ of sensation
should in itself be insensible. To cut the
brain gives no pain, yet in the brain alone
resides the power of feeling pain in any
part of the body. If the nerve which leads
from it to the injured part be divided, it
becomes instantly unconscious of suffering.
It is only by communication with the brain
that any kind of sensation is produced, yet
the organ itself is insensible. But there is
a circumstance more wonderful still: the
brain itself may be removed-may be cut
away down the corpu-s callosumn-without
destroying life. The animal lives and per
forms all its functions which are necessary
to simple vitality, but no longer has a mind;
it cannot think or feel. It requires that the
food should be pushed into the stomach;
once there, it is digested, and the animal
will live and grow fat.-Hall's Jeurnal qf
Tax P1AGUE IN RUssIA.-All Europe has
been alarmed by the reported appearance
of the Siberian plague 't St. Petersburg,
and its advance toward the frontier of Ger
many. A telegram frdmr St. Petersburg
states that it is committing fearful ravages
and that official regrns as to the nuimer
of victims have altogether ceased. A semi
official organ of the Russian Government
denies the correctness of these reports,
which, however, the neighboring countries
agree in accepting as true. The Austrian
Government has sent a Medical Commission
to St. Petersburg to examine into the na
ture of the epidemic, and the French Gov
ernment has ordered all ships arriving from
Russia to be put in quara _ he Eng
lish Governmenthas sentinstr ns to the
consuls in Russia and the ports of the Pal

on the subject and forward it to England.
Tat following receipt for curing the

Sulphate of iron, five grains; magnesia,
ten grains; peppermint water, eleven

A special says the government has full
details concerning Davis' bureau of tor
pedoes and infernal machines. Pictures
of these deadly missiles were captured.
Among other devices were torpedoes in the
shape and appearance of lumps of steamer
coal, so perfect in resemblance that they
would not' be readily distinguished from
genuine coal. The existence of this infer
nal device confirms the belief that the
steamer Sultana was destroyed by a torpedo
in her coal.
A special to the Tribune says: The san
guine expectations of some of capturing
Jeff. Davis are not indulged in to-day to a
very great extent by intelligent army offi
cers. The government is making every ef
fort possible for his capture and may suc
ceed, but it is thought that if it is success
ful it will be the result of accident and the
fidelity of contrabands, rather than of any
assistance which will be rendered by the
native white population.
Hiarrold was arraigned yesterday. Con
siderable testimony was taken in the case
and gratifying progress was made. Testi
mony has been, or will be offered, showing
that Harrold went to Canada and conferred
with the rebels about the assassination of
Mr. Lincoln since Booth's return from there.
Mrs. Surratt, who seems to have been one
of the chief instigators and participants, is
kept closely guarded, but is very defiant
ant unrelenting. Her daughters do not
seem to have been implicated, but will be
kept and called as witnesses. One of them
is very sick. She is reported to have poi
soned herself. It is positively known that
Surratt is in Canada, and there is little
doubt but that he will soon be taken. The
commission sits with closed doors, but it is
believed that the Secretary of War will send
out an abstract of the trial.

Lieut.-Col. Harden, commanding the 1st
Wisconsin, has s't arrived fro* Irwins
ville. He struck the trail of Davis at Dab
lin, Lawrence county, on the evening of
the seventh, and followed him closely night
and day through the pine wilderness of
Alligator creek and Green's swamp, via
Chamberlainville. At the latter place he
met Col. Pritchard, with 150 picked` men.
Harden followed the trail directly south,
while Pritchard, who had the freshest
horses, pushed down to Ocomulgee, towards
Hopewell, thence by House creek to Irwins
vile arriving there at midnight on the 9th.
JeffDavia had not been there, but from a
citizen it was learned that the party were
encamped two miles from the town. Pritch
ard immediately made aproper disposition
of his men and surrounded the camp be
fore daylight. Harden,, arriving in the
vicinity the same evening, encamped within
two miles of Davis' camp without knowing
it. At 3 o'clock in the morning, he pushed
forward and had gone but a little more
than a mile, when his advance was fired on
by a party of the 4th Michigan cavalry. A
fight ensued, both parties exhibiting great
determination. Fifteen minutes elapsed
before the mistake was discovered.
The firing in this elirmish was the first
warning'Davis received. His eaptors re

The Tribune's special, Raleigh 8th, says:
Chief Justice Chase is now at Wilmington,
where special citizens from different parts
of the State will meet him for consultation.
The temper of the masses in North Caro
lina is as yet unchanged. The aristocratic
and rebel class are as-highly exacting and
unsabdued, and, if possible, more devilish
than ever they were. They act as if the
surrender of Lee and Johnston's armies was
made merely to accommodate them, and not
from necessity, and that they were entitled
to particular consideration therefor.
Bishop Jones, of the diocese of Virginia,
has issued a letter to the clergy and laity of
