Near the town of Weimar, in Saxony,
oa the right of the long alley, planted with
chesnuts, that leads from tho. town '. up to
the summer palace of ths grand duko at
Hclvidere, there, is a ppot. bar cPlrees,
showing the site of some ancient buildings
the ruins of which have almost' cntireiy
disappeared. Near this site, among the
brushwood, are openings to' a most extra-J
ordinary scries ot subterranean passages,
which, it is said, have jiever been ihor- 1
oughly explored. Some say; that human
bones have been found' in them ; - others, j
that persons endeavoring to explore them J
witl Oat a clue, have become bewildered:
and perished of hunger. . Some 'attribute
them to human hands, and some to natn-
ral geological causes. ..It i3only. certain J
that tuey are there, and that no one is able I
to give any account of them, a As to the I
building, whose foundations alone are visi- J
ble among the bushes,. .it is said to have I
been an ancient castle belonging to some I
lormer dukes ot baxony. : .
Sonie few years ago, a friend of Qurs,
Herr Hehnold, cf Wreimar was in the
habit of making frequent visits to Ober
wisma, a village at the end-of tlie- park,
one of the ways to which lies through the'
Hclvidere Allee. , ' .' :
' One evening in October, after the sun
was set, he. was passing . along this road
in a thick fog, illuminated by the moon ,
as he "passed the : spot where- the aBciect
castle formerly stood, he was aware of ah
appearance in the mist beside hirn, which
at first he did cot pay much attention to,
as he thought it might be the reflection
of his own form.: After a while, how
ever, it struck him that the image which
followed his steps so closely wae accom
panied by the image of a dog, and he had
no ' dog with him. " This , circumstance
caused him to etcp aci lock tt the figure
when, to Lis horror, he -obienTexl that .-i
wanted a head. , - . . ;i a; : ' I
Herr Ilelijaold walked toward it it re
tired ; he rAi from it it - followed hiia ;
he fell idto his usual pace- it continued
to keep fiwp with hina. ; he addressed it,
but it did not answer. " 1 ' ' V
Herr Helmold is a Catholic a In mor
tal terror, he mechanically made the sign
of the cross. The ghost immediately van
ished in the direction of the remains of
t!ie cli castle. ,i , :1 , ; "
There is an old tradition connected with
the ecene of this adventure, that a former
duke of Saxony cau3od his sob to be
headed for tome fearful family crime
either the murder of his own mother, or
aa intrigue similar to that which forms
the foundation cf Lord Byron's "Parasi
na." ' - ' ' ' ' . ; ; ' '; 'V': '.'
At Berk a, a small bathing place among
the hills, seven miles from Weimar, there
is also to be seen, on a wooden knoll, the
eite of a ruined castle, , from , which . the
Grand Duke of Weimar derives his title
of Count Berks. The old people of Berka
still talk of a headless apparition which
used to haunt it, and which often appear
ed to their grandfathers. , . " ' ;
SnEKMAN'a DupuoatE Plaits. The
following aneodoteof. ths war we do not
remember to have seen before : Sherman
on his march toward Atlanta, constantly
astonished the confederates with the fa
cility with which he restored the railroad
bridges they destroyed at his approach.'
They would annihilate a bridge just before
he arrived, and the next morning there it
was again, just as it had been before they
touched it. At last a light dawned upon
them. The original plans for the bridges
had all been furnished from Cleveland,'
Ohio, and before Sherman started. he look
those plans, had each bridge duplicated in
all its : timbers and iron ; work, took tho
pieces in a "shook" state on his train, and
soy when he found a bridge gone, he had
nothing to do but "get its mate 'out of the
freight cars, bolt it together, and put it up.
Ibis Itung worried tne conte aerates a
good deal when they found it out. One
day they proposed to destroy the Dalton
tunnel, to. hinder Sherman's march, but
an exasperated Confederate said: 'Wrhat
in the nation's the uso t That d -d old
Sherman ' probably , fetched ;' another, one
along with Lira from Cleveland j"
At Beaver Dam, AYisconsin, recently a
little child fell down stairs and lay, sense
less from the fall. The noly witness to
tli3 accident wa3 the cat, which ran to an
other part of the house, where the child's
mother was at work and mewed vigorous
ly, at Ike same time running back and
fLrth from the room to the stairway by
which means the mother's attention was
attracted and the child cared-for. '

A FATAL. WATCH.
We do not believe in dreams and super- !
Simons, as n general imng, out once in a
while one .is compelled to believe even
against his own will. There lately died
of malignant fsver'an Saginaw, a young
man aged ibout twenty-two jears, whesa
parents have for a long time resided la this
city vv They.. re ged people - given to
odd whims and notions,
ana it will no
doubt be just'as well to
names. Together with: a trunk, books.
papers, clothing and money which arrived
here Irom bagmaw last Saturday msht,
came an old; fa?hicned, English watcb,
commonly known as a 'buir8 eye ' and
it is of this that we have a strange tale to
relate. The time-piece 'was taken of a
widow woman in exchange for a coin in
1857. while all the parties were living in
Sylviana, Ohio. William, the eldest son
of four boys, shortly after went,. to New
Orleans, carrying the watch with him,
and was stabbed in a salocn the next week
after his arrival. A. telegram: was sent to
Sylviana, and the father went down and
brought back the body.
Tlie , text son, Ilcnrr. in 1859.rwas
killed by the - falling of a yard on the
schooner Atlanta, while at Sandusky,- and
the Coroner there forwarded the effects of
the deceased to his parents: among them
being the watch..' The third son, James,
enlisted in the first company that left hero,
and tented with the Writer of this for the
first three months after reaching 'Virginia-
He had the! watch nntil his-death, 'whichr
occurred at Tair Oaks,, inJune, 1862,
and the watch was forwarded to his pa
rents here by Captain JeSera, of Co. G.
The fourth eon, Albert, went to Sagiasw
last winter,1 carrying the1 watch, 'against
the advice of his parents, and his ' death
and the return of the watch are recorded
at the beginning of this article. -Whether
a fatality will ever attend t all who, carry
the ancient time-piece is beyond the reaca
of human , ken ; but' the most skeptical
can bat admit that- the; death- of - four
brothers in eucccssion, so .far apart and
ss widely different, and each carrying the
watch at tho time of his death, Is a singu
lar fact jto say the least. -Lansing Demo

Eev. Dr. Butler, the well-known Metho
dist missionary who established the mis
sion of that church in India in 1858, re
cently returned to , lhis cojxntry.; , He
makes the following statement of a re
markable case': . '., . ; ..-. : T
In 1853 r British soldier, while bearing
a dispatch from one magistrate to another
in the kingdom cf Oude;-passed an unlrer
quented ravine, where he paw a pack of:
wolves, and wiin tnem a numan oeing,
evidently oneof their company. Imme
diately turning back ho reported the cir-
cumstance to the magistrate tor whom he
was traveling. The latter forthwith mus
tered a number of coolies and went to the
placa. , .The pack of wolves fled a short
distance, and sought refuge in a . sort , of
cave or den. Beginning to dig, the party
soon discovered the feet of the wild man,
an, drawing him forth, succeeded 'in
binding and carrying him to town. ; Dr.
Butler has seen him often since, and eayB
he is evidently a man, and at the time of
his capture apparently about twenty-four
years of age a;;v "a, .a-: .-.- ..Vt -;
The captured creature at nret violenliy
resisted the attempt to pat clothing iipon
him. btit after a while ceased to tear tho
garment - He is now kept by; a gentle
man in the city of Thabje Tampore, some
eight . hundred 'miles t west ' of Calcutta.
When first taken he was.onwilhng to eat
anvthin? but raw meat, and : has never
been able to speak or make any approxi
mation to a knowledge of the alphabet.
If any one looks earnestly of sharply at
him, he expresses his annoyance by a naif-
uttered grant, immediately taming away
and setting upon his haunches m a corner
of the room, or lies down. ne eats his
food off the ground, and although evident
ly a hitman beiDg, is inhabits a wolf, with
the instincts oi that beast
j This k certainly an anomalous fact: in
natural history, although it is said that
four similar cases nrd known to have oc
curred in India, presenting the eama gen

A. SAD STORY..
- Tho. Watertown Reformer gives tha de-:
tails of a sad chapter T in ; the recent dis
aster, on Lake pniario. x Among the
passengers of the steamer , Wisconsin,
burned near ! Cape Vincent, ' was a Mr.
Chisholm, : from Canada?, on his way to
Missouri, in oompany with his wife and
children, $ix.in number.- . Iletwas a' man
about fifty-five years old, had ; bought a
farm in the State to which he was trav
eling, and was moving with his "family
arid goods. -When the fire broko out he
was silting on deck, but his wife and chil
dren had .retired for; tho night. ': Ono .of
the small boats was let down to within
about a foot of the water, and .about
twenty' pas&engcrs leapt into it," and Mr.
ttushoiru assisted his wife,' three daugh
ters, and a son to get in. : One of -the
frightened crowd cut with the knifa a rope
which connected the bow of the small
boat with the davit, and the loosened end
dropped down like a spoon, and "at once-
filled with water. - - ; - - -
The passengers - were thrown out and
nearly all ;drowned.- This : happened not"
more than a minute an a half before the
steamer struck the shore on Grenadier
Island, and had all remained on board, as
the Captain ordered, not a life would have
le?n; ilost. Mrs.V Chisholm,' -tho threi
daughters, aged respectively, tweotyrseven:
and fifteen and - the boy of eleven, years
were all drowned. The "father' and 'the
two elder, Joys7' who , stuck to 3 Jhe boat,
were saved."1- Mr." Chisholm" had S4000
in greenbacks," his only, fortune, which
was. in his" wjfe's satchel and was de
stroyed by the flames: " Thus he was left"
in a strange land, a- widower,' bereft of
four" children, without money or property,
with his great grief resting on his soul, to;
commence the world anew. , The bodies
of. his wife and .children were recovered,
and havs been interred in the graveyard
at Cap4 Vincent, and the sad heart broken
hafcbani aai lather, with his two remain
ic sons, -will go on, to his homeless hosna
ia the West . ;Few life dreams have ead
der rbspfers than this!
; A '.Good. J osh. Many : years
when chnrch organs came in o3e,,& worthy
old clergyman was pastor, of a church
where they had just purchased an organ.
Not far from the church was a large town
pasture, . where a great many cattle grazed,
and among them a largo bull. 1 One hot
Sabbath,. Mr. Bull came up; near the
church graiing, and just as the Ber. Mr.
B - was m tho midst of his sermon
"boo-woo-woo"' wont the ball. ru ' -
The parson" paused, - looked bp at the
singing aeats,-and, with a grave fact?, said :
,I; would thank the musicians not to
tuae their instruments during service ; it
annoys me very much." '
-The people 6tared,,j and tho minister
Boo-wo-wp," ;wcnt tho bull again, as
ha drew a little nearer tho church.
Tbo parson paused again and addressed
the choir : ' ' - - ' "" i
- "I really wish the singers would not
tone their instruments whila I ara preach-'
ing.".-: .:,;,, .". ,.: . : " t !
Tho congregalion tittered, for they knew
what the real cause of tho disturbance was.
-The old parson went on again, and ho
had just about started good, when Boo-woo-woo";

T "It 13 isn't me, Parson, it it is that
d d town bull." : ;
; TnE Hamilton Telegraph relates the
following : ' Some time ago' a gentleman
in thi3 town was appointed auditor to dis
tribute the funds in the '.hands - of an ad-
ministrator amonirst the creditors. No
tice of the sitting of th auditor waa pub
lished in two of tho county papers. It so
Eappened that a few" creditors residirg in
a certain portion of the county, who had
claims to collect to the amount of seven
or eijht hundred dollars, from' neglect of
taking a county psper, "never heard of the
audit until the report .of tho auditor Lad
been confirmed by tho CDurt. r They then
came to town to inquire about the likeli
hood of securing their claim.3 j called upon
an attorney, who examined into the mat
ter, and informed them that they hsd for
ever lost their money; and, we presume,
charged them five -dollars for tho informa
tion, r All this resulted from being too" pe
nurious or too ca'rJiia.to FabssrTba far .a
