Eccentric Wills.—Tho New York
Times, in commenting upon the recent
mania for singular wills, say 3 :
Eccentric wills appear to bo the fashion
of tho day. Oue of the odd turns which
tho fancy of testators has lately taken in
to bequeath their bodies to various whim
sical purposes. Oao medical gentleman
thought it would be a graceful mark of his
esteem to leave his skeleton, uicely wired
and jointed, to his professional friend. His
wife, however, has disputed the bequest,
and it may become a question for tho
courts how far a man may be said to have
a property in his own corpse.
An ingeuuous Frenchman paid his ruis

Massachusetts hatter, who desired to havo
his skin converted into a drum-head, aud
his other remains into a compost, has been
duly recorded iv these columns Perhaps
if this infection spreads, wo may improve
on these oddities, and it will become the
correct, thing to distribute one's bones,

Immense Snake Story.—A novel affair
recently took place in Marion county,
Ohio, being no less than a snake hunt on
a large scale. The reptiles had becomo so
numerous, aud so fearless of people, that
small children wero afraid to go to school.)
and they even attacked some adults, seve
ral having been bitten on their boots, and
it had become a common thing for fifty or
a hundred snakes to chase men, women,
and children, across the prairie. A party
was, therefore, organized for their destruc
tion, and the snakes wero surrounded, and
driven into a twenty-acre patch of prairie,
and tho outer edges of tho tall grass set
file to. The grass burned well, the flames
rolling up ten feet high ; and as the line
advanced, the snakes retreated into tho
centre, sometimes makiug desperate efforts
to spring through tho flames, but the blaze
being too heavy, they were killed in the
attempt. One bluo-racer was nine feet
four inches long, and seven inches in cir

A MOTHER CLAIM* 11KR CHILD Aliii.
SEVEN YEARS —HE RFFUSF.3 TO RECOO
A Sussex county (I',i ) paper of tha 17th
ultimo, gives tho following d«Uiki of a
scene iv Georgetown :
On Mond.iy last ■ writ of habeas corpus
wus issued at the ioitattbt of Mary Lowis
Bgaißßt Mr.-\ Borrow!, ol Milton, io shmv
cause why she illegally tlotriim j -i little
boy, Wairen Lawk, ion of ihe aforesaid
Mitry Lewis. The following laots worn
elicited : . The boy is an Illegitimate child
of Mary Lewis, ami was when qolMyoODg
given tn .Mrs. 15. to raise. The hoy has
grown to he seven yeara of age, add a deep
affection exists between him nnd bit guar
dian. Tho mother has recently manied
and claimed her child, while Mrs. Burrows
refused in give him up.
Aftor heating the facts, the judge or
dered tho sheriff to give the child to his
mother, his natural guardian. Then fol
lowed a scene which begpars description.
The boy clung to his adopted mother, and
the old lady, with prayers and toars,
pleaded that she mioht bo allowed to keep
him. The littlo boy resisted the approach
of his real mother, and told her that ho
knew she was his mother, but that when
he was an infant sho had dpaerted him,
and that but for Mrs. Burrows ho would
have gono to tlio poor-houss, and that he
would rather dio than lcivo her. The
child used such language and evinced such
spirit as surprised every one. Thecrie9 of
Mrs. Burrows brought out the people of
tho town. The boy was taken to the
sheriff's oHice, and still he refused to have
anything to do with his mother; but after
the excitement had subsided the sheriff de
livered the little follow to her.
Good Words.—The Rev. James Lyuch,
the proseut Secretary of Stato in Missis
sippi, and a colored man, has recently
issued a circular letter to his friends in the
African Branch of the Methodist Episco
pal Church of that State, in which he says:
"Kxcrt yourselves, each and every one of
you, to restoro peace, order and good will bo
ttvecn persons of all classes. It can, it must
bo done. Indulge no feolings of revenge. It
will do no good. It will only make thiugs
worso. You havo a right to bo protected.
Demand protection. Give no offence to any
one, and seek immediately, through lawful au
thority, protection when offences aro commit
ted against you ; and if you do not get it, let
it be known. Do not encourage ill-feeling <
between white and black, though you may
have been wropged. Make the best of things ;
pursue tho even tonor of your way, as though
nothing had happened. Do not leave your
homes ; stand your ground ; throw yourselves
on the majesty ofthe law. This storm will not
last long ; the calm will como, and through
patience, faith and prayer you will yet have
SUDDEN AND FEARFUL LOSS OF LIFE.—
Th-) UH-sJ melancholy and disastrous of all
fho dreadful effects of the sovero gale that
pessed over this portion of the country on
Sunday, the 2Gth of March, which have
yet reached us, is that of the swamping of
two boats in the waters in the neighborhood
of Dawfuskie Island, one containing Gfteen
negroes and tho other twelvo, in all twenty
seven, every one of whom were drowr.ed.
On Sunday last eleven of tho bodies washed
ashore on Dawfuskie Island. The rest
havo not been soen as yet, but will proba

point of land or other, if thoy do not drift
