Tho I'ittsburg Ismlr contaiiiii an
account of n young lady who recently
cjient nix days in heaven. 'I he young
lady " went forward " nt n protracted
effort of a uiethodist church, i'ur prayer,
and chortly afterward became uncon
scious. She wa carried away by her
friend?, and remained in that condition
for six days, speaking at interval of
the scenes of another world, when asked
by her fricud if die would ever be
able to rite, she told them that her
Saviour had informed her cbo could do
so on Sabbath evening at nitio o'clock,
aod immediately at the hour named sho
wm restored to all her powers of body
and mind. Having taken no food of
any kind during the six days, her friends
pressed her to take om nourishment,
but she told them bu had beuu fed with
milk and honey in hcavcu. Tho invol
untary journey of the young lady to
the spirit land is the subject of much
comment and speculation among thoso
the singular circum-
Tut: M'ashiugton Capital tells what
itcalU the true story of tho difficulty
between I'Mi and Sumner. It appears
that as long ago as luuo lnH, the
former viiitcd Mr. Sumuer, and uted
all his powem of persuasion to induce
tho Seuntor to withdraw his opposition
to tho San Domingo scheme, nnd fail
ing iu tho attempt, told him "ho could
at lea.-'t quit the Senate and not stand in
tho way of tho President's policy."
nd then, by way of inducement, of-
ferrud hint tho English Mission, Mr.
Sumner, of whom his worst enemies will
not jiay that he is an intriguer,
was very properly indignant
toward Mr. I'ish ; but kept tip a show
of cordiality until tho Moran letter was
given out, when Mr. I'ish would not
visit Mr. Sumuer until he had ascer
tained through Senator Patterson that
he would bo well received, nlthongh Mr.
Sumuer added to this assurance, that
he felt that Mr. Fish had dono him a
cruel wrong." One more visit to Sum
ner was made by Mr. rish, while
their friendship for each other hung
upon a thread, which that visit broko.
The Capital finishe tho story in thin
"But alter midnight, when Fish had
departed, Mr. Sumner, cnlmly sitting
down in tho quiet of his library, rcsolv-
d that his folf-respect would compel
him to discriminate between l-ish, tho
stcwurd, nnd Fish tho friend. Thorc-
lore, when, some timo afterward, they
met on a privato occasion at Hon. Robert
T.Seheuckp,andlato in tho eveuiug 3Ir.
Fish addressed a frivolous remark about
duck and partridge to Mr Sumuor, the
latter merely looked at him, and mado
no reply. Then was formed tho plot
to havo Mr. bumner removed from tho
Chairmanship of tho C'ouimittco on,
Foreign. Rotations, of the success of
which the country kuows."
On how Btnall a hingo does great
events sometimes turn. Tf Mr. Sumner
had auswered Mr. Fish's joko, had
only laughed at it, had given itporhaps
a feeble amile of appreciation, lie might
ftlll have been chairman pf the Com
mittee on Foreign Relations. 'But no,
he "merely looked "at Mr. Fib,,nd
that look was the straw which broke" the
camel's back. Official clemency could
go no farther. The Beta -who, addi
tion to thwarting the administration in
its pet scheme, axlded iasaltrto jwrj
by refusing to -smile at a witticum f
thefcitato Secretary on ducks and partrid
ges, deserved to have his blaahlag hm
on killed by the frost of Presidential
Ueecuru, on laet Sunday, preached
another sermon which is calculated to
startle orthodox christians as much as
his last effort in that direction. After
baptizing lire or ,iir littlo ones, Mr.
Bccchcr made the following prayer over
"How many weary itein, Oh Lord
must theio littlo tV-l go wliero no hand

repentance to-day, nnd sin again to-morrow.
Thou wilt tee to It that they work
out their own miration though this may ,
bo done In tin nnd orrow through a long
wenrv .. ton of yoare,"
Mr. Hcecher then proceeded with
his sermon, taking for his text the 21st
clinpter of Acts, from the 15th to tho
'JOth verses inclusive, iu which ho pro
mulgated some very decided opinions
on communion, baptism, Ac., classing
them m more forms, " necessary or
tinneccssarv nn the case may be." Tho

and athird in uieciinsing 01 committees,
they bavo resolved to dispense with tape

The first real business which Genoral
Washington undertook when commencing
life was a survey of the possessions of
Thomas Lord Fairfax. Ho ontorcd upon
this work whon ho had just completed his
sixteenth Year, and continued It for throo
years, as it wa very proniame omptoy ment,
receiving, wnen actively employed, u doub
loon, and somotlmcs six pistoles a day (a
pl.tolo Is 3 00). While thus employed
surveying lands beyond tbo Illua llicfgc,
ho was often an inmato of Grcenway

houso which wo picture is still to bo soon
near tho village of Millwood, In tho She
nandoah Valley. It stands on a green
knoll overshadowod by trees, and is a low
ttono building, ono story in bight, with
dormer windows, two wooden
Itlfrioi, chlmnoys studed with swollow
aod martin coops, and a roof sloping down
In tho old Virginia fashion Into low pro
jecting eaves, that formed a veranda tho

somewhat pretentious in appenranco, it
was probably the plnco originally occu
pied by tho Stewart or land agent, as a
grand manor houso was projected, but
never built. Lord Fairfax had a some
what romantic history, as Irving tells us
in his life of Washington; and although a
thorough contloman and scholar, wai re
markably odd in many of hit actions. One
of his eccentricities wat that he novcr slept
In tho main building, but lodged apart In

and huntors, and kcnnols

Tho ltev. John Drown, ssyi tho Dayton

of tlx years, and was so singularly modest
and bashful that ho had never ventured
to kitt her. One dsv it occurred to him
that it would not be a bad thing to do. So,
