A corrcpindent in the country has furnished us with the follow ing account of an individuifl, by the name of Robert H.-.Coupland, wlb is exhibiting- himself through the country. The facts arc vouched for by a numbej of the most respectable physicians and tther person in Ilenry county. SavanahGcorgian, This most singular bcinglperlmps, Ins not a parallel in medical hisWy. -lie. is 9nw a ltsn On vnq io rll Afrtni t-w c f r t .. and intellect. His deformities and pin -', uvn auuuivw wuouju, .iuuiuij omui r sical peculiarities are. owing! to a fright his mother received trom a tirge rattio snake attempting to bito hel abou the sixth month of her pregnancy J For sev- , eral minutes after the snake strack at her, ehe believed herself bitten jusa atove the ankle, and so powerfully was her mind af fected, that, when she was dcli ered, the child's will was found to have rp control - - 1 I over his right arm and leg: nhich are smaller than his left extremities. He can use his right leg now sufficient! to walk in a hobbling manner but canno retain it ! weight stationary, without the aid of 11 of his body. Hisriirht has hand ihe usual number of fingers, but they arq smaller than those of his left hand. 'Ihe wrist joint is looser than usual, and llis hand stands afan angle with his arm. His iron i teem arc sumewnai poimw zna in clined backward like thefans of a snake. i The right side of big face is nfTected; his mouth is drawn considerably tnrther on the right thnn on the left side; his right eye squints hns several deep groves radiating from it, and has a very singular appear once much resembliug a snake. , Bt . perhaps the most extraordinary circumstance on record, is that his right arm, when not restrained, will draw the lower part to nbont a right angle with the upper, and sometime two or three, but mast commonly only ho fore finger will project, curved at tho first joint, much re. sembling a sinkes head and neck, when in tho nttitude of ftikingj'and the whole arm will strike at , An object -with all the. venom of n snalp, and precisely in the same manner, sometimes fr two or -three, and sometimes fcr four or five strokes, and then the arm assumes a vibratory : motion, will coil up. -md apply ; if self close against his body. During this period his righl foot and leg become excited, and if not. restrained will ftnke also. tiis tace la also excited: he angle of lus mouth is drawn backward, and his eve snaps more or less, in unision with the strokes of his hand, whilst hi lips were always separa ting, exposing his teeth, which being some what pointfd like the fangs of a snake, caues his whole visage to, assume a pe culiar and snaky aspect Diring infancy and childhood, the whole shape of the snake, even to his fangs, was printed on the anterior of his legs ; but as he grew up it became gradually obliterated, till now there is only a small depression where the snakes "eoad was imprinted. The sight of a snaVe fills him with horror, and an instinctive feeling of revenge; and he is more excitable dimng the season of snakes and ev n conversation concerning them excites him, and his armnppeirs more anxious to strike than when no such con versation is going on. All of the above phenomena are per fectly independent of his will, as hundreds can testify, who were acquainted with him long before he had anv idea of exhibiting himself publicly. This singular being was horn in Carolina, and moved to Geor gia in the year 1629, where he has since remained, performing such labor, as 'be could with one hand; and by unremitting exeriions, has maintained his wife and an increasing family- His physical peculi arities being considered only in the light of a common deformity, he never thought of exhibiting himself publicly, till it wns suggested to him by a medical friend in 1830." . From" tlie Ita!imore Patriot. Baltimore CorTr Covht. The case of Peter Bond, tried in this court on'Sat urday laet, waa one oC which the details were truly heart-rending. The prisoner who appeared to be shout fily years of age, was indicted Tof the iimrder of his 'wife, with whom Ic.had lived in the cu joyrrtentof conjugal affection and happi ness for a nmtnber of years, and by whom he had nine children, the youngest of whom was about two year old at the time of the alleged murder. The particulars of the transaction ere detailed by two of his own daught.?rp, who appeared to be be tween 14 and 17 years, and were the only persons presenl fit the commission of the deed. The prisoner lived near Reisters town, and one owning in the latter part of September last, he wa si'ting quietly on the side of lis bed, nnd his wife sitting close by, sewing, with her back toward him, when hd, unperceii-cd. took from underthe bedinaxe, with which he struck her a violent Mow on the heat, his daugh ter interfercfand took the ax? from hm but he recovered it again, anJ repeated the blows, vhich occa?ioned her immedi ate death. He manifested no alarm, but left the hor,$e, and returned in the even ing, and was met by his son, near the house, whn'asked him where he had been, and he repied that he had been almost to BaItimore. The defence set up by his counsel was insanitv, and a number of witnesses were examined by them to sup port the defence, . and so conclusive was the evidence on that point, that the jury acquittefl him without leaving" their box, upon the plea of inanitv, and in pursu ance of the actof 1836, ch. 197. which provides that when anv. person indicted for a misdemeanor, sets up the plea of lu nacy or insanity, it shall be the duty of me jury to hod whether such person was lunatic or insane at tho time of the com mission of the act, and still is a lunatic It is the dutv of the Court, under the pro visions of the snid act to cause him to be sent to the alms-house of the county,' er the hospital, there to be kept until" di-- tunrfrro iy m course of law. In the same Court, at this term, an in dictment was found against a man named Knight, and another nnmed Lytle, fir the murder of tho wife of Knight," which ha been continued until the next term of the Court. Why is it, in fact, that the tone of mor ality in tho high places of society is so ,(11111 IIIIUO 111"!!

Why is it, then, that fashionable vice is able to hold up its head, and sometimes to occu py the front ranks of society! It is bb cause respectable persons of hesitating and compromising virtue keep it in counte nance. It is because timid woman strel chesouther hand to the man whom she knows to be the deadliest enenv of mor ality and of her sex, .while she turn a cold eye upon the victims he has ruined. It is because there is no body to speak plainly in cases like these. And do yo think that society is ever to he regenerated or puri fied under tho influence of these unjust pusillanimous compromises! I "tell you never. So loner as vice is suffered to be ; fashionable and respectable so long as mm arc bold to condemn it only when u is in rags, there will never bo auy rudicri improvement.

Dis cussing the. great" questions of polity be fore the country, expounding and advo cating the "Democratic" doctrine through the mjst able pens that that party tan furnish, in articles of greater length, more condensed force, more elaatebor research, and more elevated tone, than is possible tor the newspaper press, a Magazine of this character becomes an instrument of inappreciable value for the enlightenment and formation of public opinion, nnd for the supiiort ef the principles which it ad vocates. By these means, by thus ex plaining and defending the measures of the great Democratic Party, and by al ways furnishing to the public a clear and powerful commentary upon those complex questions of policy and party which so irequently distract the country, and upon which, imperfectly understood as thev often are by friends, and misrep estnted und distorted as they never fail to be bv. j- j mcai opponents, it is oi ine utmost im portrncc that the' public". should be fully and -rightfully' informed, it is hoped tha the periodical in question inaybe rnadeti ,T. .W WneficU,, ra,io;i an Win W'r inflaence on tin public rinnd. piuagcu hiu . r,i, , i . u u a( l,n bavo been 'he bankers ami factors of the O her considerations, which cannot lo nave uun t KhI3hlv.Pprreciatcd, will render tines- Suufh Innff euon2h w.ih "f" tnblishmcnt and " success of tho pred Bank credit and our f cf f capital Magazine of verv great i nportan.e.
