The almost prescient anticipation of an
early demise expressed by the deceased

Borbed in the duties and cares ol the great
mission into which be had thrown all the
smergie? of his -i.ind, he paid no attention
to his slight indisposition until it had en
tirely mastered his vigorous nature. On
Wednesday, the 16th inst, he had his sol
emn audience of tne Emperor, who was
pleased to respond in the most sympathet
ic language to Mr. Burlingame's able ad
dress. Buoyed np by the more than ordi
pary encouragement which he had receiv
ed in a country whose friendly disposition
was ot the utmost importance to China,
Mr. Burlingame thought nothing of hit-
cold, and considered it his duty to take the
members ot his mission the next day to the
Hermitage, at the invitation of the
Emperor, and to make his official call on
Sir Andrew Buchanan, the British Ambas
sador, with whom he was to have dined the

ever, continued to make such rapid
progress that two other medical men of
eminence were f?alled in. The Emperor
also sent his own physician, but all was
unavailing. His sufferings became very

a vigorous use of her muscular development
and her powers of screaming, having made
such a noise that the attacking party were
compelled, to escape arrest to mount a
pring wsgon near by and drive off in hot
haste. The detective felt that at last he
had obtained a clue to the object of his
search, and at once proceeded to interview
the colored woman. He found her to be
a large, muscular female, of the
deepest black, weighing fully 300 pounds,
just such a woman as was calculatd to
make a vigorous stand in defense of either
life, property or virtue, against a half score
of men. From her he leai ned that this was
the second time she bad been assailed by
the same partv. and also obtained a very
good description ot the general appearance
of two of the party, one of whom she said
she could swear to on 6ight The descrip
tions talli d very well with two men who
had been laying around the city for some
time without any visible means of support
He now proceeded to watch the movements
of these men, and in the course of a tew
days obtained sufficient reason to believe
that they were the parties responsi
ble for the 6udden departure from
among their friends . of the
ncn est darkies, and accordingly deter
mined upon a stratf getic movement to ob
tain possession of the facts in the case.
Watching his opportunity, a lew nights
since, he succeeded in getting one of the
suspected men by himself, and producing
a bogus warrant arrested him upon a
charge of being engaged in the business of
murdering, and furnishing subjects for dis
section by medical student. The fellow was
a coward, for the moment he found him
self in custody he became thoroughly
frightened, and at once expressed a willing
ness to tell all about tke whole business if
he would be allowed to escape punishment
This was exactly what the detective want
ed, and taking his prisoner to a room in a
certain hotel, he obtained from him a full
history of the entire affair, which is so hor
rible in lis details that as we write, we
shudder to think that men could be found
to originate, much less to execute it
The prisoner stated that he and three
others, whose Barnes he gave, but which,
for obvious reasons, we refrain from pub
lishing, had for over a year been engaged
in the business of lurnishing subjects for
the dissecting knife; that sometimes they
dug up the bodies of lately buried persons,
but they had found it to be far easier to
quietly kill some negro whom they would
waylay at a lite hour of the night or en
tice to some lonely spot beyond the hear
ing of either police or citizens. Hs said
that during that time tLey killed, he sup
posed, at least 15 negroes, and "resurrect
ed' eight or ten white persons, the mest
of the subjects being sent by express to
Chicago, a few going to Louisville, and a
few being used here; that they were paid
large sums for the "subjects by the par
ties receiving them, and that no questions
Horror-struck by the revelations made
to him by this cold blooded murderer, the
detective determined at once to take the
necessary steps for the arrest of the three
others, and, fearing to take his prisoner
upon the street for the purpose ot convey
lug him to tne l&ii wnere ne mignt possi
bly meet the others and thus give them an
opportunity to Hump the town, he con
cluded to lock the man up in the room
which was in the thirc story of the hotel,
and go forth for assistance, lie ac
cordingly did so, leaving a porter
on the outside of the door to
watch. He was not gone more than ten min
utes, and when lie returned wi h the ne
cessary papers and assistance, upon enter
ing the room imagine his astomsnment
and chagrin at finding it empty ! The bird
bad flown. The open window told the
tale. Driven to desperation the villian
had frnai the window succeeded in reach
ing the water-spout and by what must
have been a superhuman display of
strength and agility, let himself
down to the hotel yard, whence
he had easily escaped to the al
ley and disappeared. He was tracked some
distance in the mud, but at last all trail
was lost Steps were taken to cause the

having disappeared as suddenly as had
their numerous victims. The detective is
of the opinion that the entire party is still
in the city, lying perdu until an opportunity
is offered them to leave, as no parties
answering their description have left upon
the various trains leaving the city.
Although it is to be regretted that these
cold-blooded murderers have escaped the
officers of justice, it is a source of gratifi
cation to feel assured that their butchering
operations in our midst have been brought
to a close. Oar colored people may now
go about the streets of nights without fear
of having their throats cut on a moment's
notice, and being the next day served up
on the dissecting board of a medical col
lege. We feel satisfied that many of our
readers will look upon this story as a can
ard, and we cannet blame them for so
doing, as we should certainly not give it
credence or publication were we not satis
fied of its truth from the reliable source
from which our information comes. Com
ment upon it is hardly necessary. We
leave our readers to digest it and come to
their own conclusions.
3fW Satett Valve. In view of the great
number of boiler explosions in the country
of late, much interest attaches to the series
of experiments just finished at the Wash
ington Navy Yard, under the direction of
Admiral Dahlgren, with a double action
safety valve, invented by a Mr. Boden, of
Louisville, The first trial was hydraulic.
the second by fire; and both were eminent
ly successful. In making the latter, the
boiler, having no water in it was heated to
as high a temperature as was deemed nec
essary, and then suddenly supplied with
water through a ten-inch aperture. The
steam formed instantly, the outer valve
rose, the inner valve fc il. and the necessary
relief was given. I Lis trial at the navy
yard is the fifth to which the Boden valve
has been subjected, the firrt having been
by red heat the second fev black heat and
one having been a deliberate attempt made
by practical steamboat engineers, with the
inventor's consent to blow an old boiler to
atoms. The attempt failed.

A Young Lady's Hair Torn Out.
From the Worcester Spy.
A young lady by the name of Williams,
employed in the hoop skirt factory of D.
H. Fanning) met with an accident on Fri
day, by which she lost her front- hair, and
was injured about the head. She was down
upon the floor, engaged in cleaning np
around a revolving shaft which runs under
a table or bench, and a lew hairs on the
front of her head got entangled and wound
np with the shaft, without her knowledge,
until so much of it had caught tnat she
could not free herself. Her cries brought
the other girls of the room to her aid, and
while some of them were engaged in try
ing to throw off the belt that turned the
shaft one. with quick thought as to what
must be done, seized a knife and cut off
the hair before it had torn the poor girl's
scalp off though it had raised it up in an
ngly manner, and drawn ber head so near
that a set-screw struck her on the face at
each revolution and cut a bad gash. She
was taken to her home on Southbridge
street and medical aid procured.

Disco teet or Huhax Boxes. The peo
ple of woodbury, N. J., are greatly ex
cited about the recent discovery of a large
bed of human bones on a farm about one
mile southeast of the town. The bed is
several feet in thickness, and two or three
rods in extent and the bones are lying
within three ftet of the surface. The
owner of the farm, before leaving for Phil
adelphia, gave instruction to his men to
cart some earth from an adjoining field
to cover a compost heap. On his
return in the evening he lound
to his surprise that the heap was
partly covered with human bones. The
neighbors were informed, aud upon exam
ination it was found that this mass of bones
were piled in together promiscuously, and
are of an unusually large size. The bot
tom of the bed is thickly covered with
charcoal, and the lower tier of bones fall
to pieces as soon as touched. Those on
top are well preserved, and are but little
affected by the length of time buried. A
committee of townspeople was appointed
to take some specimens to the Professors
of the Academy of Scieace of Philadel
phia, and next week, a scientific examina
tion will be made. It is supposed that
they are the bones of an Indian tribe, but
so far there are none of the Indian war
relics found among the hones, which leaves
some doubts on this point

The Norway Seed Oats, Startling'
Frauds in the Sale of Counterfeit
seed, Interesting- Facts, Profit itle
Farming, How to Fay mortgages,
Where to get Genuine Seed, Who
We have been to considerable expense in putting
farmers on their $ nard against the frauds that were
being perpetrated in the sale of Seed Oats, but not
until recently did we realize tbe magnitude of these
swindles. IL W. Marshall, of Cincinnati. Ohio, has
issued a circular much ot the c n tents of which has been
copied from ours, iepresenting that he ia oar authorized
sgent for the West for the sale of the Ramsde.l Nor
way Oats seed. We are informed by rebabLi parties in
Cincinnati, that be has sent out over Uolf a Million of
these circulars, and is receiving thousands of orders.
He is a swindler, has never had any of our seed, nor any
communication with us.
N. P. Boyer A Co, Publishers of a country paper
somewhere in Penn., issued a circular in a similar man
ner, claiming to have our seed, but when we exposed
the fraud tbey changed their tactics, and are
advertising th it they import seed from Norway. This
dode is so ridiculouH, in view of the fact that our seed
never came from Norway, and that we are filling orders
from that country, that intelligent farmers are not likely
to be deceived by it Samples sent ns, which same
from them, have been pronounced New Brunswick
Oata by hundreds of farmers wbo examined them.
Other parties are selling what they claim to be our seed.
st prices varying from LoU to 6 per bushel, all tar
raxied, of count, and some use our name. Some of
these parties are honest, but were themselves deceived
in the purchase of seed last year. Out of twenty sam
ples sent ns of Norway Oats, now being advertised,
only two were genuine. We cannot go Uirougn
the whole list but tbe above facts are suihcient We
have only to request that those who boy of such parties
snd are disappointed in thoir crops, will not condemn
our seed, as some did last year.
Facta and figures have already been published, show
ing by as reliable testimony as can be found in tbe land,
that the Kanudell Norway oata will produce from twice to
three Umeaas much to the acre,are heavier,aad of better
quality, stand up better, and are more bardy than any
other known oata. 1 hey have been awarded furty-nw
hrst premiums, at the lata State and County fairs, in
competition with all the varieties now grown, which is
a larger number than was ever awarded to any agricul
tural improvement in a single year. Among the lead
ing journals that have recommended them, may be
mentioned the American Agriculturist New York
tribune, Moore's Rural New Yuraer, Independent
.X. Y. Observer, Methodist Christian Advocate, West
era Kural. Prairie f armer. Advance, Toledo Blade,
and others. We can only present a few specimen
extracts showing the character ot the letters received.

There is a very general understanding among farmers
as to supply and probable demand nf this seed. No
reasonable man. who knows the facta doubts for a
moment but that they will come into general use, jo-1
ss rapidly aa the seed c an be tad, displacing all others
from our soiL If the entire product could be retained
in this country, it would require two more crops to
apply tho seed wanted. But it is rapidly becoming
known in other countries. While we have not courted
foreign orders, wishing to reserve that market for
another year, the few samples sent there last year have
produced so well, that orders are daily reaching ns irom
all parte of Europe Even Norway ia looking to ns for
seed that bears her name, several important orders
having been received from tnere. Nearly fifteen percent
of ths last crop will be exported, and probably not less
ih.. i nf the next will find ready sales abroad With
these facts before us, we an not expect a veiy great
H-tjon in nrice of seed next year. v e nave snown
j, at price of ordioanr oat, thej are a profitable crop.
iiir hnshel. ther will pay handsomely; bnt at 43
or $4 it is an easy matter for a farmer to pay off mart
gages or build a new bouse from a few acres. Last
season a 9-acre lot yielded $11.25 to a New York far
mer a larger sum than he had nude in ten years farra
jog. A. Wisconsin farmer did still better ; and hundreds
have made small fortunes. These facts can be fully
proven any day by undoubted testimony. While these
high prices last, it is a speculation, but if i taft and
nirt. We hope no farmer will buy this seed unless he
fully believes hs is doing himself a greater favor than
be is us. Many have thanked us for urging them to buy
last year, and thousands will do so next year.
