The strange coninoidenco of dreamus
It Baltimore, whereby a horrible
grave robbery was exposed, has re
vived considerable literature upon the
subject of visions. Mr. U. A. Porter,
in Belgravia, relates tio following
historical tragedy and Its curious fore.
Ont the night of May 11, 1812, Mr.
Williams, of Scorrior house, near lted
ruth, ii Cornwall, woke his wife, and
ln great agitation told her of a strange
droam hei had Iusthad, le dreamt ho
was in the lobby of the House of
Commons, and saw a muan shoot with
x pistol a gentleman who had Just en
Lered the lobby, who was said to be
the chancellor. Ilis wife todd him not
lo trouble hinise!f about the dream,
but to go to sleep agaIn. le followed
ie'r advice, but presently woke her
igain, saying he had dreant the same
Iream. Yet a third time was the
:lream repeated; after which lie was so
:listurbed that., despite his Wife's on
reatles that he would trouble hiinself
tio more about the Iloute of Commons
but try to slee) quietly, he got up ani
iressed himseif. This was between
o and two o'clock in the norning.
At breakfast Mr. Williams could talk
:f nothing but the dream; and early

isked what sort of a 1an the chancel
or Seemed to be, and Mr. WIlliaIiius
ninutely described the man who was
nuri'dered in his dream. Mr. Tucker
replied: "Your description is not at

xactly that, of Mr. Plerceval, the Chan,

Ur. Williams had Over seen Mr. Per

1urther, that lie id never been in the

weather was fine, and Immense Crowds e
of people lined the entire route of (lie

tures was the great numbers of men o
in armor, on horseback, and no acc- r
