ax vu vsl x... '? s VeuTl?ft A IVlfbt ?i(li ???<t?Experience of ? Crtman who wai tiuppoaed to Hhre Departed tltto Wife, and wm From tbo dan Francisco Alt*, April 10. The terrors of the grave, the fear of death, and the terrible calamity of being buried alive, have all been forcibly pictured more than once; but any picture, however , must fall to leave the impression drawn _ produced of either that w obtained by expe fiencc; and in no cave can any one be so alive to these terrors, and fears as the one who, being considered dead, is treated as such. For some time past a German, known bv the name of Frederick worked in a diuing saloon on First street as waiter. His con* Mitution was weak, and the confinement necessarily attending his employment af fected him very mucn. Ife consisted some physicians, who pronounced him consump tive, and advised him to give up liis employ ment, and put himself under the care of a* physician or go to the hospital. He decided on adopting the latter course, and some short time ago went to one of our hos pitals, His condition rather grew worse daily, and lately he was confined to bed, alid little hopes entertained of his recovery. About a week ncro lie crew ft J'WM in the morninc c?very co?ii*'w' )'? rc?l ovww/J.1.1 W8', Purina the dav he -till Sct^rt'T' "ot] ^CtC,J'-JSd',to"o,Pl^n was deposited ifl ? ; -i bodies had afrgttdy >. e?*? aild beI tween them. The cover WA? put C2, and the keeper of tbe d'-ad-liotise retired for the night. About midnight Ht loud screaming arid yelling of the most Uitfttrthly cliarao tcr was heard in the dead-hcrose* The watchers heard it, the i>atients heard it. atid the party who had charge of this portion of the hvcQuihg heard it also. A silent sense of fear, of terrof the most terrifying, stole over them all, and tUfcrr concluded that a scene Was being acted simitar to that wit nessed by Ta? CShanter at Kerka/Ioway where he saw "tforfooks and wichcs in a dance." Tbe keeper of the dead-house was sought after, but being att?ro of what he tv.is required to do he sought concealment, preferring to let the ghosts tight it Oft among themseh'es, rafHiw than attempt, to be come peace-maker. The yells and shouts in the dead-house still continued, while the door received an occasional bang, ac companied by the demands the door; let me out/' *At i* er was prevailed nnon tayjgwBJ'iue keep ' * nPRrproceed to the __ . the door, when the ghostly form of tftc German, whose life had been a few . hours previously pronounced extinct, and who hud been drr^sed in the robes of the deAl,- stood before him. The keeper fainted outright, while the terrified German rushed heaulofc* through the long hullo and corridors of the frftifdiiig, spread ing terror and dismay as lid went. Some more courageous than "the rest caught and arrested hfin In his frantic career, but the next instant the poor German foil on the tioor in a swooii. The physician was at once sent for, and restoratives used by which he was restored to consciousness, and, although he is still weak and under treatment in the hospital, his re coveir is considered certain and only a mat ter or time. IIo now walks about pretty stoutly, and is permitted to go outside the hospital limits. He visited his late em plover a few days ago, and related to him the* fact that, having got into a trance, it was thought he was dead, and he was re moved to the dead-house. How he felt when he returned to consciousness, we give as he told it himself: " Yel, ven I got sick and vas in bed dat day, the Doctor came to me and said I was very sick. He vent avav, and after he vent I fell asleep. I knew noth ing more till I voke in de night, and there vas no light. I put out my hand, and I could get no bed-clothes, for I vas cold. I den put my hand to vone side to try for the bed-clothes, and, och, my Gott/vatyou tiuk I got?vy, a ded man ! Dere he vos, cold enough." sure. I roared mid all the power I haa, and vas going away by tbe other side, vin sure, I put my nana on another. Then I roared, and called, and cried out all I could, and ven 1 was get . ting up, my head struck a board that was covering me. Oh, said I, vot does this mean ? Vere I am ? Am I ded ? And I roared and bawled, and threw off the cover and jumped about as if I vas mad. And I knocked at the door vid my hands and feet, but nobody would open it for me, and I thought I vas ded myself. I vas not sure. I had the dead manVdretw on me. At last the door opened, and ven 1 looked at the man vat opened it he fell down mid fear, and I ran ul I was caught. Then I fainted, and ven I come to myself I thought it vas a dream. But it is as true as I am here." ; WAJITO.
