The Sleeping Girl-A Pbyoi
clan's Opinion, . (,, , (
Me. Editor At your request I will
give yon some of the particulars of the
sleeping wondor, Miss 'Susan 0.. Godsa.
I visited her for the first time on the 27th
of June last . . , , .
First. She is always in motion (some
thing like sleeping shaking palsy.)
She awoke a few minutes after our ar
rival, and remained so eight minutaa, du
ring which timo sho took a mouthful of
refreshments. She said nothing unless
it was in answer to such quostions as were
put to her by some of our party, which
she did with sufficient clearness. Her
physical dovelopoment is good enough ;
complexion sallow,' hair black; head
largo and well developed. .The other
parts of her body are not so well devel
oped ; her hands and feet are very small ;
she is of medium height. While I was
putting questions to her sho went to sloep,
in the twinkling of an eye, and slept two
hours and fifteen minutes, then awoke in
a kind of oonvlsion. - She is not aware of
any misery or pain while asleep; and has
no dreams if she has, does not romem
ber them ; in short, she is totally dead to
all sensations of pain or pleasure while
When awake she is always in great
pain, whioh she generally locates in her
need, left side, and the small of her bank;
can't lie on her left side. I tried to
oount the pulso, but owing to the inces
sant motion of her arms I failed. Could
barely discover the pulse. When Bhe
again went to sleep she lay in this condi
tion three minutes. Then commenced
to hiocup at every respiration; raising her
head a little at each hiccup, till her chin
was brought down to her collar-bone, a
little to tho left of the median line -Then
her neck beeame limber, and her
head instantly fell back to. the pillow.
This lasted from a half to three-quarters
of a minute. Thon she would appear to
cramp for few seoonds, and then she
was as before. She kept up a continued
series of the above deseribed symptoms,
alternating from one to another in'regu
lar succession for two hours and fifteen
minutes, when she awoke, took refresh
ments, answered questions as before, and
in ten minutes was round asleep, and
OOBtinusd ! Hmw molloua m Wfo.
Miss Godsa bas been diseased in this
way for the last fifteen years. Ten years
ago her symptoms bconme more aggrava
ted, and have changed but little since.
As I expect to preparo a full report of
this remarkable ease in detail soon for
the medical world, I will say nothing
moro. . Rcspeotfully,
W. D. CORBET.
P. 4. Sho has novor been known to
remain awako longer than ten minutes at
a time in the last ten years.
Hickman, Ky., July 8, 18G7;
. A Precedent.
The Radicals in the Congressional
Rump assign one reasen for their refusal
to receive tho Kentuoky members, vis :
That in their opinion they are not loyal.
This is setting a good procedent fcr the
Demoorats, if they choose to follow it
when thoy have tho majority. Under
this test of loyalty vihnt Radical Republi
can could pass muster ? Under their in
terpretation cf tho Constitution, end of
the legal right of Congress, wo shall have
a pretty wide margin in the future upon
whioh to sot, and they may find that their
logio outs both Ways with equal effect.
It is only necessary to remember the pre
cedent they have set, and by-nnd by it
may havo an application its originators
little dreamed of, but which would be,
nevertheless, pcrfeotly legitimate. Evil
preocdenta are like curses, they often
come home to roost, as our Republican
frionds will discover. Enj.

TUo Soldier vs. The BondUold
The soldier who spilled his blood in
defense of the country, ' and risked his
life in her defense, was considered well
paid if he obtained his compensation in
greenbsoks. ' Sat now the advocates of
th favored and exclusive class toll ns
that it well never do to pay those who
lent money to the Government in green
backs, although that was the kind of
money they lent the Government. The
debt of the bondholders they say, Is a
higher and mora saorod one than that of
tho soldiers I Legal-tondors are ' good
enongh for the lattor, bat nothing exeopt
gold will do for (he aristocratio bond
holders ! ' A monetary obligation, in their
estimation, is more preoioua than blood,
and a risk of property moro saored than
a risk of life! l)o the soldiers believe
this T Is not 1hcr currency , they wore
paid fn good enough for anybody 1-Enq.

Sleeping Equality. ' "
The Enterprise (Mississippi) Sfar.tells

of ours, well known' omoDg the Metbo-J

it seems, to Alabama : . j .
A. friend has just stepped in who gives
us the following as a practical test of the

Rev. Mr. Talley, of the Montgomery
Conference of the Mothodist Episcopal
Church South, who is a "weak vessel,"
baa been brought up by the emissaries of
the Northern Methodist Church. In the
ignorant teal of a new convert, who, of
course, wished to render somo service
for his money, be went into the Summer
field District, over which Dr. A. II.
Mitchell presides, and began the propa
gation of the perfect equality doctrine
among the colored people. Th6 equality
he carried beyond Beyond ; and as the
legitimate result was lionized by the ne
groes. An old gentleman of the white persua
sion, residing in the neighborhood where
this missionary of equality was laboring,
saw proper to doubt Mr. Talloy's sinoeri
ty, and told a favorito boy an old time
house and body servant, who had imbibed
great confidence in Mr. Talley as a sin
cero equality man that he had ss well
keep his money if be intended to give
Mr. Talley any until he could - test his
sinoerity. A new idea struok Jack.
Mr. Talley was lo stay all night at Jack's
master's. When he retired to bed, Jaok
aoeompanied tberevercnedturnooat to his
room and hold him in long conversation
on tbo equality doctrine, until Mr. Talley
m fully committed to it, and thoroughly
sleepy, he took off hii ooat ready for bed ;
so did Jack. Boots came next; so did
Jack's. Talley's pacts off; Jack's ditto.
"Look here, Jaok, wsat are you up to?"
quoth Mr. Talley.
"NufSn 'tall, sir Ees going to bo
'down to'somefin, data all," replied Jack
"What's that yoa are going to be

"Well, I'se going to bed wid you, dats

When the wnr ended the ownorj of the

shores of this gront river cn either side,
returned to the homes from whioh thev
had been expelled, and endeavored to re
build their waste places. Their houses,
barns and mills had beep in many cases
burned, and their negroes had dispersed,
but their land Was left to them, and they
hoped to raise from it enough to feed
their families and enable them to live un
til better times. But thev vrere cenni-
less. The negroes, mistrustinor their
good faith, were unwilling to work for
them, ana wait until the sale of the crop
should enable the proprietors to pay them
thoir wages. With great difficulty a
soanty and ill managed crop was planted
late in the season. It failed to produco
anything, and tho first year was lost.

rains, swept away tho embankment raised
to retain it in its channel, and which had

for it. The Government, which paid
7,000,000 for Russian Amorioa, refuses
to appropriate tho one million which

The New York JYmcs, a Republican
journal, reads its party a lesson for re

ment of progress. It alhdea to tho fa
vor with which tho resolution of Shanks,
of Indiana, was reoeived in the House,
approving of the murder of Maximilian
in Mexico, and to the speech of Tipton,
of Nebraska, in the Senato, favoring a
promium upon Indian soalps. It then
says : '
"Eighteen centuries and a half of rule
upon Christian- principles havo brought
us to this that tho newest Government
of the world, avowedly based on the most
exhaltod sentiments nnd In tho face of a
people who are destined, to exeroise a

man affairs than any other people that
ever existed men are to urgo tbo re
adoption of the barbarous codes which
were becoming obsolete, before the time
of Christ. Suohisthe 'progross' of which

It says there is a feeling becoming
prevalent in its party that would oonduot
the Government in precisely the same
manner as the King of .Dahomey, the

The'Jbiirn'nf ohann me and my fami

lirst for myself From tho commence
ment of the war I tuado public speeches,
whenever occasion offered, and my health
permitted, urging the yonng men to vol
unteer, and the old and wealthy to give
money to support the families of the sol
diers when in the field.
I have four sons, nnd two sons in-law :
fivo of tho six entared the scrvioe early ;
three of the four sons, and one sdn-in-law,
served to the end of tho war, and each of
theso was twico promoted for good con

was wounded when leading his regiment
to the onargo, and was honorably dis
charged as unablo to perform further ser
vice. This will, I trust, bo roceived as a fair
record of family loyalty, so far as the
war is in question ; but never having
sworn allegiance to Sumner or Iliad.
Stevens, or any of thoir ilk, and having

crushed and humbled, without putting
