Aliy. N. C. The death of ooe brother proceeded the other by two hours. M B. D. Chang and Eng, the Siamese twins, were born in 1*11, and have been exhibited in most parts of Eugland and tho United Mates. They rave (or some years past been residents of North Carolina. Each of them was married and had a family ot children. Their respira tion and circulation were generally simultane ous iu tbe calm state, and tbeir hours of sleep and waking, their joys and sorrows, anger andjpain, ideas and «desires, were the same. They realized the idea of perftet friendship, the two being one,and each one two m thought and facts, and the Inevitable cuuthleuts of each other. The twins were horn in ttie mouth of May, 1811, of Chines« parents, at a small villugo called Makloug, ou the sea coast of Siam — Their mother observed that she suffered no greater inconvenience as they were very small, an i tbe bead of one was presented be tween the legs of the oilier. Tneir parents belonged to the lower classes, ami until Hie youthml twins left their home they were en gaged iu fishing, manufacturing eoeoa-uutoil, keeping poultry, Ac, for thesuppoitof the family. They were carried from bi.ini on April 1, 1829. when 18years otage, by Captain Cotiiu, of the American ship Sachem, anil were extensively exhibited throughout the United States anu Euiope They were about five feet two inches iu height, well made and muscular, and have beeu known to carry a person weigh ing 28b pounds a distance ol a Hundred feet. Tuey were quite agile, could walk and run very swiftly, aud could swim well, Thuii in tellectual powers were acute, both l> iug able to play chess and draughts remarkably well. Their feelings were warm and affectionate, and their couuuct amiable and very well regu lated. They never entered iuto a conveisatiou with each other beyood a simple remark made by one to the other, which seems to he rationally accounted for by tho fact that, their expeti ence being ad in common, they had nothing In Tho attempt hud frequently been mad« to engage them iu seperate conver sation with different individuals, but always i without success, as they were invariably incliued to direct their attention to the same tiling at the same time. Indeed they ap peared to hare been actuated by a common mind. They were never kuowu to utter an angry word toward each other, whatever pleased or displeased one had the same effect upon die other. They both felt hunger or thirst at the same time, and they always woke up at the same moment. Upon the possibility of separating ihem, w itu safety, there was a difference of'opinion among medical men, the most ol whom belle y ed it to bo impossible.

On Friday night they retired to bed as usual, but during the night Chang became worse, aud, to the utter dismay of all his friends, expired suddenly about 4 o'clock Saturday morning. Ls soon as it was discovered or on _ that his spirit had left Its earthly tenement and that death had claimed him for his own, Eng became bo terribly shocked that he raved wildly for a while, at times exhibiting signs of great men tal aberration. This attack was followed by what seemed to be a deadly stupot, aud all now eagerly watched the fate of the surviving twin, so long ami inseparably united to his new dead brother. In two hours, It la supposed, from the death of Chang, Eng breathed bis last, and in death, as iu life, the souls, as well as the bodies, of the celebrated twins were once more reu nited. the THE WIVES ANBFAM1 LIES of the twins ar» In the deepest grief, the child ren.uiany of whom aro deaf mutes, expressing their sorrow aud bereavement In the most pit iful manner of ot A G hand Church tea Festival i« Phila delphia. —The corrner-«tone of anew Catho lic church in Philadelphia, "St. Charles Borre meo/' waa laid on tha 12th of July, 1S5Ö, corner ofTwekh aud Christian «treet«; already the aiim of $115,000 haa been expended in the construc tion, and it is «aid it will require a* much more to finish the work. 1 n aid of the church fund a grand tea part* is arranged to commence this tveiling in that cilv, the preparations For which are «aid to exceed' fc anything of the kind ever gotten up in IU it country.
