The writer of this baa for tbe last two

We hare not time to enter into a full
description of what we have seen. But

preclude the possibility of untying or

ought to satisfy the most skeptical. ot

wrist nnd under tbe end of the tie which
is sewed to his coat sleeves, and with all
thlh explanation of tying and sewing his
coat is entirely removed from his body
without a stitch or tie belust affected in
tbe least. After a thorough examination
of the coat by the persons present it was
put back upon his person in tho same
mysterious manner, with no evidence of
untying or breaking of stitches.. We have
tied him with a cord over twenty feet
long, in a mauner that would preclude
the posiibtlity of his getting his hands
together, aud tbe final kunts were tied
where It was utterly impossible for him
to reach them, aud, notwithstanding all
this, he would be untied in less time than
