On Wednesday and Thursday, the 14th and 15lh inst, the driving park at St. Paul, Minn, was the scene of an extraordinary irot, Mr. Martin Delaney matching his sorrel inure (a small, full-blooded Morgan) to trot 230 miles in Ibrty-eigbt hours, for the small stake of $200. The St. Paul Pre$» says of the first day: ‘The trot wa:i commenced yesterday at twenty minutes past four a. m., Mr. J. Cum mings holding the tibbons. The mare start ed out at the rate of more than te., miles an hour for the first two hours, and was gradu ally slowed to about an average of ten miles an hour. At five minutes past ten she had completed the first fifty miles, naking it in some fi/e five hours and forty-five minutes. She was then given a rest of three hours and a halt, and was stared at a little past half past one on the second fifly miles. A half past seven she had completed it, having made the first hundred miles infitteen hours, which leaves thirty-three hours for the completion of the other hundred She made the last mile of her first, hundred yesterday the fast est of any—five and one-hail minutes. Those who witnessed the feat say the mare showed no sign of fatigue, never sweat a hair, and trotted off to the stable to feed at the end of her day’s I; bor as briskly as though she had just come from the barti ” Of the second the same paper says: “Wednesday the first 100 miles was com pleted. and at halt-past seven o’clock the mare was driven to stable apparenily in as good condition as if she had only traveled one-quart r of the distance. Yesterday morning, wheD taken out of the 'am at five o’clock to complete the trot, she seem d a lit tle sore at first, but soon warmed up and commenced her davs’s work with wonderful ease. At ten o'clock she had completed thir one miles, an was withdrawn until tour min utes past twelve p. M. Alter this rest, in which she manifest'd no signs of weariness, she made h" rest seven miles, in one hour and two minutes. No pains were taken to keep a regular account of her rate of speed, but in geneial terms it average through the day about six minutes and five and one-half seconds per mile tor I he first fifty miles wid seven minutes and two and one-hall seconds foi the second fifty miles. Atterlhe rest given the mare—from seven until nine o clock in the evening—all parties on the ginund saw that she would make her 200 miles eaily. She pur sued her even g it, and a few minutes past one o'clock this morning completed the race, makin^her last mile In nine minutes and thirtv.one siconds. Thus she won the. wag er. and iu three bouts less than the time giv en her. She trotted off the 'rack seemingly unconscious of the marvel she had perform ed.” _ How it Keels to he Drowned.—Dr. Hoffman of Dixon, III., w ho was one of the , ictims of the recent bridge disaster in that town, and was very nearly drowned, thus de scribes bis sensation while in the water; I could feel the water running down my threat and in my ears, and all at once expetienced the most delightful seusatinn. I see • ed to be at peace with everyihing. and perfectly happy. My whole life passed before me like a flash of lightning, the events appearing in sequence, the most prominent appear ng to be inde.licly impressed upon my mind. Cir cumstances I had forgotten appeared vividly, anil I di'1 not want, to be disluibed. I should have prtfeired to remain where I was. While in the midst of a healitie revi rie, thinking what my w ile n ouludo if she were saved and I drowned, I felt a hand, on my shoulder. I was pulled out at d placed on a rock. I was almost insensible, hut gradu ally ci.me lo myself. Oh, how sick and wretched I felt! I was greatly astonished at the number of events that passed through my mind while under ilie water. Nothing that occurred during chil diood was evident, but everything since I was abou* 19 years old appeared before me as if phot* gra bed. The sensation 1 experienced while the water was going down nij throat was no* unpleas ant. It seemed as if I was going on a jour ney, and was surrounded by all kinds ot beau tiful things. A Ghost, and What Came of It.—An Iowa newspaper asks the following 'conun drums : ‘Do the spirits of the departed ever appear upon earth? Are they permitted to return, and bold visible commi.nion with former friends? Do they hover about us?” Now for the reason of these interrogatories! A young man died at Princeton township, leav ing a widow who subsequently engaged her self to a nan in Californi», with whom she had been acquainted formerly. But No. 1 appeared to her, and lifting his finger saia: “Postpone your marriage t” He came again a lew nights after, and repeated his “Post pone vour marriage! ’ She was very much frightened, but her friends told her it was the nightmare. Still the dead husband kept saying tbe same thing. Then he appeared to the mother of tbe lady, and this time he va ried the monotony of tbe warning, for he said: “Have Sarah’s marriage postponed.'’ So the poor widow wrote to her affianced aiid had tbe nuptials put off. Now, what came next? What, but a San Francisc i newspa per containing a uiai -ed acc< unt of tbe airest for robbery of the California lover, ai d of his incarceration for want of bail ? Furthermore it spoke of his wife and children as dcsuving of sympathy, and assistance of the charitable. So ghostly Number One did not appear for nothing; and the widow is, perhaps, jn her gratitude, more in love with her husband s shade thau she ever was with the substance. Baby Farming in Washington.—Dr. W D. Stewart, medical sanitary inspector to the board ot health at Washington, disc, v ered a negro woman in a very degraded quar ter of tbe city nursing a very delicate white infant, a day or two ago, and on ii quiry, learned that she had been in the habit of re ceiving in ants to nurse “as long as they lived from the private lying-in establish ment of Miss “Dr.” Jane Wilson. Miss Wilson was visited by a health officei. who wished to asceitain if she made any return of the b rths and deaths oc. u Tine in the estab lishment, according to law. Sue claims to keep a “lying-in hospital ’for the accommo dation of “ladies who d* sire entire pilvacv , and especially of young girls who nave been unfortunate. She ays she has done and . doing “a good business;” 'bather pat iento come to her from Washington u ^ *cjn. ing cities, that 1*^ Vh alHl for the clnnati, O., ‘ eot locality. She atiends past vea- m her]pre.^ (h(.m ti„ fu||y "t r P“™d ' and disposes of I heir offspring for recovered. ^ ,h.|t lhe births were return* i *«'tlie health officers, but rhat fictitious aioes were used. Tbe infants, being “faim ‘,'j ()Ut," were of course expected to die, but no record was made o! tlieir cases. The board of health will take such action as the law au thorizes.
