The most rapid growth . takes place

an infant during the first year of its
existence being about eight inches.

about six-tenths, of an inch a year;

A COLORED CHILD MARVEL.
' ' .
A late issue of the Louisville (Ky.)
Courier-Journal says : There is now in
Louisville a negress who is a perfect
childi wonder. She is a- Scriptural
marvel. She docs hot even know her
letters, yet she- can ;qubt;e accurately
almost any passage in the Bible.
At the age of nine months she could
talk, and would frequently tell, her
mother what her idea of heav,en was.
As she grew older she would sit for $
hours and expatiate on the beauties and
glories of the other world. The old
colored folks would listen-to her say
ings for hours. ' ". "
At the age of three years she began
to lecture on heaven, its wonders, on
God and His omnipotent power. She
has lectured in many places, and has
created a furor in every place Ehe has
yet visited. The prodigy lectured at
the York Btreet colored church yester
day afternoon, and at night spoke to a
large crowd at the Green street color
ed church. Her speech was good, and
her delivery impressive.
A reporter of the Courier-Journal in
terrogated her last'night. Ui
What is your name, little girl ? '
lAlice Coalney.' ! ;
'How old are you ? '
'Ise just four years and twenty
eight days old to-night.' :"
4 Where were you'bdrn ci ' '
I was born in Liverpool, England
'cross de Atlantic.
How long since you felt the power
within you ? ' f
' I don't, know ; Tse always felt the
power of God
What do you talk about when you
speak to a crowd ? '
' I talk about Jesus, about heavenly
things, about how Jesus died and was
crucified ; how He rose .again in three
days and sitteth on the right hand of
6 Can you spell ?.?
No, sir ; I don't know my A, B, O's
yet-' . . .
She then went on in a rapturous
strain about things biblical and spirit
ual, completely nonplusing the re
porter. She was accompanied hy two color
ed men. They talked ; in an enthu
siastic manner about her. She said
in her conversation iha't she believed
in two kinds of baptism's. She spoke
of the different modes of salvation ;
how to reach Paradise ; how to be
converted from a bad man to a good
one, etc. Her sayings were eniirely
original, and were not spoken in a hes
itating voice, hut in a quick, keen and . .
forcible manner. As young as she is,
a negress, without education in the
principles she seis forth, her power
partakes strongly of the marvelous."
