An incident of thrilling and almost terrible
interest, eomblning in itself all the palpitating
chances of hair-breadth escapes and the
itrange, romantio ventures of that wiord sem
blance of life, somnambulism, is thus rolated
by tho Detroit Free Prtu as having; ooourrod
in that oity a few nights ago:
The soene was on Catherine-street, at the
residence of Mr. Israel More ton. At about
half-past two A. Mi he was awakened by a
knocking at the front door, and found a man
on the steps, who, in a very Incoherent and
excited manner requested him to walk across
tne street ana look at the top of bis house.
He deolined, and was about retiring, suspiolous
of foul play, when his eye caught a moving
snauow on iront oi tne opposite house, it in
dicated that some moving, living thing was
walking noiselessly along the narrow ridge of
bis roof. An indiscribable ohill orept over
him. The shadow stole aoross the front of tho
opposite building, and was lost for a moment
in tne darkness, and then crept into view
again, returning in an opposite direction, with
the same slow, gliding motion. His oompanion
had regained the opposite side-walk, and stood
gating up in silence, seemingly struck speech
less with horror, and with trembling steps Mr.
Moreton gained his side, when his gaze fell, on
a form shrouded from head to foot in a long,
white night dress, about which a mass of long
bair fell in wild oonfusion.
. The spcotral form paced slowly to and fro on
the narrow ridge-board which covered the ap
pex of the roof, approaohing in frightful prox
imity of tho abrupt termination at the ends,
and calmly turning about to retraoe the dis
tance. The house was a high one, and a mis
step cr a step too far would have plunged the
night-walker down to certain destruction.
The walker occasionally raised her hand to
her head, as though engaged in thought or
troubled with pain. The bead always main
tained the same position. A ohimney stood
directly in the middle of the roof, around
whioh she passed with ease, placing one hand
upon its top, and walking down the sloping
roof to get around. Once, in this spectral
walk, she paused at the edge of the roof, and
looked straight ahead.
A waving movement of the right hand
accompanied the act, when the walk was again
renewed. The same spot was reached again
a few moments after, when the figure again
paused, and again gazed out into the darkness,
end then, with a slow motion, stretohed cut a
hand, and with outspread fingers clutched at
something whioh had no existence exoept In
the fevered mind of the sleeper. The other
hand was then extended in like manner, and
the body went forward In such a way that the
upper portion hung over the abyss, while the
fingers reached out, until there was no further
reaching, and then clutched again with a
quick, convulsive snatcn, and were withdrawn.
The form was motionloss a moment, and then
commenced Its walk again, continuing as far
as the middle of the roof, when it turned
toward the rear of the house, and moving
down the slope ol the root, was lost to sight.
Mr. Moreton recognized the features and
form of his servant girl, about eighteen, named
Jane Mooney. She descended through a sky
light to her own room. Hastening in, he
aroused his wife, and went with her to the
girl s room, and found her sitting en the side
of the bed, wide awake, and in a state ot maa
bordering on dostraotion. She had no knowl
edge of the occurrence, but bad been awakened
by the noise of her employer entering the
house, and found herself standing in the mid
dle of her own room in the condition desoribed.
The girl had been suffering from a brain
fever, from which sue was graauauy reoover

aCTThe London Globe says in roference to
the North-western Boundary dispute:
The claim advanced by the United States is
a geographical question, and it is to be settled
by the application of geographical scionoe to
the terms of the convention of 1846, which es
tablished the forty-ninth parallel of north lat
itude as the boundary between the Territories
of the two countries from the Rooky Mountains
to the channel which separates Vancouver's
Island from the oontinent, and thenco through
the middle ef the ohannol and the Strait of San
Juan de Fuoa to the ocoan. This is a question
which turns upon facts and upon the interpre
tation of a treaty stipulation read by tho light
of those facts. It was to aseertian the faots
that her Majesty's Government appointed
Captain Prevost Commissioner; the instruc
tions to those gentlomen were simply a repi
tition of the terms of the troaty. The
Question itself is not quite new; it is as old as
the present year 18jV, and there oan be no
doubt that the two uovernments win see to its
just and amicable settlement.
BSt was for a long tiuio supposed that
Mount Washington, ofthe White Mountain
?roup, was the highest peak east of ' the
tocky Mountains. But this honor must now
be dennitciy conierrea upon oniony juoun-

and situated in Jackson County, North Car
olina, near the Tennessee line. Professor
John lie Come, ol Boutb Carolina college,
accompanied by Mr. Clingraan and Mr.
Buckley, has made accurate barometric ob
servations of tho various hights composing
this group, during the past summer. These
gentlemen, and Professor Guyot, have ascer
tined that North Carolina has no less than
fifteen peaks higher than Mount wasninir'
ton. According, to Captain Cram, of the
United States Coast Survey, the hight of
Mount Washington is o,iVi leet. The eleva
tion of Smoky Mountain is 6,737 feet.
Jf-The great problem of the sonroe of the
Nile7 which has oooupied the attention of the
world during so many agei, may now be con
sidered as definitely solved. Captain Speke,
who has just returned to England from an ex
tended tour in Central Afrloa, in company with
Captain Burton, discovered a lake, called by
the natives Nyanta, but by the Arabs Ukerewe,
whioh appears to be the great reservoir of the
Nile. It extends from two degrees thirty min
utes south, to three degrees thirty minutes
north latitude, lying across the equator in east
longitude thirty-three degrees. Its waters are
the (trainings of numerous hills whioh sur
round it on almost every side. The new lake
washes out the Mountains of tho Moon as at
present existing in our atlases.
Gas Manufactured from Water.
It was mentioned a day or two ago that a
successful trial of gas, manufactured from wa
ter, took place at Wilmington, Delaware, ou
Saturday evening. A number of toientifio
mon and sevoral persons connocted. with the
Philadelphia Gas Work?, were present. Ac
cording to the NerW American, the experiment
was so successful tho new gas so much more
brilliant than that made from coal that the
Northern Liberties Gas Company has deter
mined to substitute this new prooess for tbo
one it has been hitherto using. The cost of
this new gas, it is stated, will be from thirty to
fifty cents per thousand feet, and will save
nine-tenths of the labor and expense of erect
ing coal gas worki. The theory of the
process is said to be si follows:
Water, as steam, is decomposed by being
passed over red-hot charooal, and the resulting
gases (hydrogen, carbonio oxide, and light car
buretted hydrogen,) are chemioally oombined
with heavy oarburetted hydrogen, or light
giving gas, by the decomposition of resin or
ooal vapor, simultaneously with, and in the
presence of, the decomposition of tho vapor of
water. At the Wilmington Gas Works, are
now three water-gas retorts, aggregating only
one twenty-seventh of thcoubical area of their
coal-gas rotorts, yet more productive than tho
whole of their present eoal-gss apparatus',
making one thousand two hundred to ' ono
thousand eight hundred feet per hour. Tbo
gas manufactured is superior in color and
strength of flame to that produced from ooal.
Rosin is used as the oabonizing element, re
quiring from twenty-five to forty pounds for
every thousand foot of gas, whioh is free from
sulphur or nitrogen, and has an odor rather
agreeable than otherwise.
An Auburn Convict.
Tho fatal error of commencing a life of
crime is illustrated iu tho lifo and punish
ment of George B. Moody, Who has been
confined for two years in the State Prison at
Auburn, New York, for fraud and forgery in
passing off sevoral fraudulent checks, par
porting to be drawn by a Missoui banking
house on tho American Exchange Bank,
New York. His time having expired, be is
to be brought on a requisition to Kentucky.
It is said that Moody, since, his imprison
ment at Auburn, has conducted himself in
the most unobjectionable manner, and has
won the confidence and friendship, to a very
considerable degree, of the officials. He is
employed as a clerk in the hospital.
Letters written by Moody to his wife, since
his arrest at Rochester, New York, speak of
large deposits ol specie, tne avails ol his
forgeries, in the earth, in the neighborhood
of Memphis, Tennessee, and West Point,
Kentucky; vai, in roference to an applica
tion of his wife for a divorce, he expresses a
design to take their only child, a little girl,
and sk a home in Italy.
This offender commenced his career at
Grand Rapids, Michigan, as a clerk in the
Postoffice, where it is charged that he ap
propriated the funds of the office to his own
use. He is reputably connocted there, and
his wife is now staying with her husband's
Outrage on a Boston Vessel.
Captain Goodridge, of tho bark Hazard
arrived at this port jostcrdny, irom the CoaBt
of Afrioa, reports having been fired into by
Brltith steamer. The following is his state
ment: On the 8th of May, as we were running
north with studding sails on both sides, made
a two-masted steamer steering for us, and
showing English colors. We run up the Ameri
oan flag to the peak, and it blew out well.
When about a mile off, and being forward of
our starboard bsam, she nred a gun. We kept
on, and in about fifteen minutes she fired a
shotted gun. The shot went over our deck,
between the fore and main masts. Hove the
bark to, and the steamer sent a boat along
side with two officers, who inquired the vessel's
name, mastor, Sta. We declined permitting
them to oome en board, telling them they had
exceeded their orders. Asked them how thoy
came to fire into us, when our flag was up.
Thoy replied, "D n your Hag we want to
see your papers!" When about leaving, they
asked if we wanted them to enter any oom-
in their log. We replied "No." Bid

gTDuring the military encampment at
Lewiston, Tenn., a tragedy occurred, result
ing in the death of Mr. Plutlo of the Sioux
Valley Guards. It appears that on Friday
night last, an attack by rowdies was appre
hended, and tho guards wore ordered to let
no one pass without the countersign. Ed
ward Mills, a member of the Patterson In
fantry, of Juniata County, being on guard,
was approached by a man, between nine
and ten o'clock, whom ho ordered to stand.
Tho man passed on, and Mills, in attempting
to charge, stumbled to the ground, the
musket being accidentally discharged. The
musket contained a largo nail, which en
tered the body of the man, who afterward
proved to be Mr. Platte. He died a few days
after, and Mill was acquitted by the camp
