—A remarkable coincidence—if it real

changed overcoats by mistake the other
day. One of them, Mr. Martin, waa con

he had a meus ol Turkey rhulmrb in oue

ter said "It is a little singular that I

You are the man I've lieen looking for
ami to the astonisnment of every oue,
they then anil there swapped coats. To
complete the singular coincidence of the
atlalr, Mr KieMer also had a pair of kid
and woolen gloves disposed in ids pt»ek
eta as Mr. Martin's were, and both coats
were the same size, though not alike in
color or material. Mr Fielder remarked
that his gloves came up more than usual
over his sleeves, and he thought his arms
must have shrunk. Mr. Martin's gloves
were larger than his.

during the war, who examined the bo y
shortly after it was found, gives tbe foi
lowinir as his theory of the caum-of ti» M*i:
Mr. Johnson either stumbled over a po-cy
of coal, or, being seized with a|Hplexy,
and fetriviut. U save himt-elf, utoved
ward the west, staggering along by the
northerly side of the Executive Mnnsiou,
at each "step his Isxly gaining additional
momentum, so that having reached the
door leading into the basement he swayed
around to the south, and fell, his head
striking against the sharp corner of the
granite base of the house, which gave the
first wound on the bead. Reaching the
pavement ol rough cobblestones, a second
wound was recerved in front of the first.
At this instant, probably, tlie bonttTof the
nose were fractured, and one joint of the
second finger of his right hand was dis
located. Whether his subsequent strug
gles mav account for tlie abrasions on
his knees and the fingers of his left
hand cannot be positively asserted. The
wounds in the scalp were accompanied
with fractures of the external bones of the
crtuiium and the base of the skull also,
with the probable rupture of some of the
arteries at the base. Death must have re
sulted instantly.
Mr. Owynne, the Attorney-Gencral of
tlie Htate, and a son-in-law of llr. John
son, is of the opinion that he was seized
with vertigo and fell, as he hud a similar
attack, lasting three hours, while attend
ing atrial in rviuth Carolina, several years
ago. 1
Alleged Remarkable Discovery in
ilorida.
We learn that the Indian Monnd on i
Murphy** Island was opened, Or1 rather
entered, by a party a few days ago. This
mound is oue of the largest on the river,
and has excited more than ordinary inter
1 est among our scientific visitors. But
Col. Hart, proprietor of the i-!and upon
which the mouud stands, heretofore per
sisted in his refusal to have this relic of
I past ages disturbed. Ou Wednesday, i
however, it was resolved to inspect thor
I ougbly this monument of prehistoric age.
'A party from the Putuain, with others,
took a sleamer for the island, where they
arrived iu good time. It was agreed to
open the mound at its base. After making
a breach of thirty-five feet,they discovered
a hard wall made of cocquiua, or shell
rock. This wall was cemented, aud was
i ornamented w itli variaus figures of war
i riors, with liows and arrows, and various
reptiles. After much difficulty a breach
was made in the wall, and by the light of
a torch several of the party entered much
surprised, they found themselves within
I s vault eight feet high, with room twelve
by fifteen feet long, with armed warriors
i incased in niches, all in a state of petrifi
cation. This is certainly a most wonder
ful discovery, and has produced a pro
found sensation. In view of this import
ant discovery, Col. Hart has stationed a
guard to prevent parties making away
with those wonderful objects. Murphy's
Island will, no doubt, become the Mecca
of the 8t. John's Him.—Patatka {Fin.)
