THE DEAD ALIVE.
Tho subjoined narrative, from
Chambers' Journal, is stated to bo
translated from a foreign newspaper.
It is necessary to remind tho render
that tho Island of Mauritius, apper?
taining at this day to tho English,
was originally colonized by tho
French, and that the population yet
consisted, in a great measure, of per?
sons of that nation, to -whom, by a
formal treaty between the powers con?
cerned, their ancient laws and usages
were preserved without any material
Some time ago, tho Sieur Clodomir
Frcnois, a rich merohant of tho
island, was found dead and frightfully
disfigured in bis own habitation. His
body was discovered lying on tho
floor, with his head and faco muti?
lated by means of a pistol, and all
doubts as to tho cause of the catas?
trophe wero dispelled by tho disco?
very of the fatal weapon by the side
of tho corpso, and also of a paper in
tho hand-writing of tho deceased.
Thia paper contained tho following
words : .
"I am ruined! a villain has robbed
mo of twenty-five thousand livres
sterling; dishonor munt bo my por?
tion, and I cannot await to survive
it. I leave to my wife the task of
distributing among my creditors the
last which remains to us; and I pray
that God, my friends, and my ene?
mies, may pardon my self-destruction. '
Yet, in another minute, I shall bo in
Great was tho consternation caused
by this tragic event, which waft tho
moro unexpected as tho loss alluded
to in tho note had never been made
public Tho deceased had been held
in great esteem all over tho colony, as
a man of strict honor and probity,
and was universally lamented. His
attached widow, after endeavoring
faithfully to fulfill his last wishes,
found her grief too overpowering to
permit her to minglo longer with the
world, and took tho resolution of
consecrating her remaining days to
the service of religion. Two months
after the sad end of her husband, she
entered a convent, leaving to a nephew
of her lato merchant, a physician,
tho charge of completing the distri?
bution of the effects of Frenoisamong
A minute examination of tho papers
of the defunct led to tho discovery of
the period at which tho unfortunate
merchant had been robbed; and this
period was found to correspond with
tho dato of tho disappearance of a
mau named Moon, long in tho em?
ploy of Frenois. Of this man, on
whom suspicion naturally fell, nothing
could bo learned, on inquiry; but
shortly after the division of tho late
merchant's property, Moon re-ap
pearod in tho colony. When taken
lip and examined respecting the cause
of his flight, ho stated that he had
been sent by his master to France to
recover certain sums duo to tho mer?
chant there, in which mission ho had
been unsuccessful; and ho further
averred that, if Clodomir Frenoi?, in
his existing correspondence, bad
thrown any suspicion upon him,
(Moon,) tho whole was but a protext
to account for tho deficiencies of
which tho merchant himself was the
solo cause and author. This declara?
tion, mado by a man who seemed to
fear no injury, and whoso worldly
circumstances remained, to appear- j
unces, tho samo as they had over been,
had tho effect of silencing, if they
did not satisfy, tho examiners; and
tho affair soon foll, in a great men?
suro, out of tho public rocolloction.
Things remained for a short timo
in this condition, when, ono morn?
ing, Mr. William Barnett, principal
creditor of tho lato Clodomir Frenois,
heard a knocking at his gato at a very
early hour. Ho called up one of tho
servants, who wont down and opened
tho door, and immediately returned
with tho intelligence that a stranger,
who seemed desirous of keeping his
person concealed, wished to speak
with Mr. Burnett in private. Mr.
Burnett rose, tnrew on his dressing
gown, and descended to tho parlor,
lie saw thero a stranger, a tall porson,
seated iii an easy and famili?r atti
tu do, -with a copy of tho Morning
Post in his hand. The back of the
visitor was turned to Mr. Burnett, as
he entered. Bather surprised to see
a stranger oonduot himself so like an
old friend of tho house, Mr. Burnett
"Sir, may I beg to know your busi?
ness with me?"
The stranger turned round, and ad?
vanced to salute his host, warmly and
courteously. Mr. Burnett started
back, and uttered a loud exclamation
of surprise and alarm. Well he
might, for before him stood his old
friend and debtor, Clodomir, whom
ho himself had followed to the grave.
What passed at that interview be?
tween Mr. Bnruett and his strange
visitor remained, for tho time, a se?
cret. Mr. Burnett was observed to
issue several times, palo and agitated,
from his dwelling, and to visit tho
magistrate charged with tho criminal
process of tho colony.
In tho course of that day, while
John Moon was regaling himself with
tea under tho palm trees of his gar
don, in company with a Circassian
female whom ho had bought some
timo previous, ho was arrested an?J
taken to prison by tho oflicers of jus
ticc. On tho following day, ho wei
brought to tho criminal court, ac?
cused of robbing tho lato Clodom?
Frenois, the crimo being conjoinec
with breach of trust and violence
Moon smiled at tho charge with al
tho confidence of a man who had no
thing to fear. Tho judge having de
manded of him if ho confessed tin
chargo, tho accused replied that th?
chargo was altogether absurd, tba
clear testimony was necessary to fi:
such n crimo upon bim; and that, n<
far from there being any such ovi
dence producoable, neither tho wido\
of tho deceased nor any one persoi
in his service had ever heard tho pre
tended robbery oven onco mentioned
by Frenois during bis life.
"Do you then affirm your inna
cence?" repeated the judge, gravely
after hearing all that the other had ti
"I will avouch my innocence," rc
plied Moon, "even before tho bod;
of my late master, if that be necc*
sary!" [Such a thing of ten took pjac
under tho old colonial law. J

a voice broken by some peculiar erne

A signal from tho judgo accompr
nied these words, and immediately
door opened, and Clodomir Frenoii
tho supposed suicide, entered th
court. Ho advanced to tho bar wit
a slow and deliberate step, having h:
eye calmly but sternly fixed ou tl:
prisoner, his servant. A great sensi
tion was caused in the court by h
appearance. Uttering shrieks of alan
and horror, tho females, present Ile
from the spot. The accused foll o
his knees in abject terror, and shut
deringly confessed his guilt. For
time, no voioe was heard but hi
However, os it became apparent tin
a living man stood' before the cour
the advocate for tho prisoner gaiue
courage to speak. He demanded tin
the identity of tho merchant bc c
tablished, and the mystery of li
existence bo explained. He said th
tho court should not ho biased I
what might provo to be a mero ace
dental likeness between a man livii
and one deceased; and that such i
avowal as that of tho prisoner's, e
tracted in a moment of extraordina
terror, was not to bo held of rum
weight. "Before being admitb
bore as accuser or witness," continu*
the advocate, addressing tho rcsus<
tated merchant, "prove who and wh
you aro, and discloso by what chan
tho tomb, which so lately recoiv
your body, mangled by bullets, li
given up ita tenant, nud restored y<
to tho world."
Tho firm appeal of tho ndvocal
who continued .steadfast to his du
under circumstances that would ha
closed tho lips of most men, call
forth tho following narrativo frc
"My story may bo soon told, a
will suffico to establish my identi
When I discovered tho robbery co
mit ted by tho accused, he had th
fled from tho island, and I speed
saw that all attempts to rotako h
would provo fruitless. I saw ri
and disgrace before mo, and carno
tho resolution of terminating my ]
before tho evil day came. On 1
night on which this d?termin?t
was formed, I was seated alone in :
private chambor. I had writtei
letter, which was found on my tal
and had loaded my pistol. This do
I prayed for forgiveness from
Maker for tho act of despair I i
about to commit. Tho end of
pistol was at my head, and my lin
on tho lock, when a knock at the 01
door of tho house startled mo. I c
coaled tho weapon and went to
door. A man entered, whom I roc
nized to bo the sexton of tho pal
in which I lived. He boro n sack
his shoulder, aud in it tho body <
man newly buried, which was <
tined for my nephew, the physic
then living with mo. Tho scarcit;
bodies for dissection, ns tho com
aware, compels thoso who aro ?
ions to acquire skill in tho med
profession to procuro them by
possiblo secret means. Tho soi
was at first alarmed at seeing
'Did my nephew request yon tob;
this body?' said I. 'No,' replied
mau, 'but I know his anxiety to
tain ono for dissection, and too
upon mo to como and offer him
body.' 'For morey's sake,' con tinned
the sexton, 'do not betray me, sir, or
I shall loso my situation, and my
family's bread. '
4 'While the man was speaking, a
strango idea entered my head, and
brought to my despairing bosom
hopos of continued hie and recover?
ing honor. I stood for a few moments
absorbed in thonght, and then recol?
lecting myself, I gavo two pieces of
gold to tho resurrectionist, the sam
which ho had expected. Telling him
to keep his own secret, and that all
would be well, I sent him away and
carried tho body to my cabinet. The
wholo of tho household had pre?
viously been sent ?ut of tho way on
purpose, and I had timo to carry into
execution tho plan which had struck
mo. The body was, luckily, of the
same stature as myself, and like me
in complexion. I know tho man; he
had boen a poor offender, abandoned
by his family. 'Poor relic of mor?
tality,' said 1, with tears in my eyes,
'nothing which man can do eau now
injure- thee; yet, pardon me, if I
rudely disfiguro thy lifeless substance.
It is to prevent tho ruin of not ono,
but twenty fnmilics. And should suo
cess attend my attempt, I swear that
thy children shall bo my children;
and when my own hour comes, we
shall rest together in tho tomb to
which thou shalt bo borne before
Tho most lively interest was excited
in tho court. Frenois proceeded:
"I then stripped oft' my clothes,
and dressed tho body in them. This
accomplished, I took up tho pistol,
and with a hand more reluctant than
when I had applied it to my own per?
son, I tired it closo to tho head of
the deceasod, and at once caused
such a disfigurement as rendered it
impossible for tho keenest oyo to de?

of which we call tho attention of tho public:
We, tho otllcors of tho Southern Or?

and education of the destituto orphans of
deceased Southern soldiers um) sailors,
earnestly solicit tho sympathy and co-ope?

Enabled to receive and caro for all tho

Thanking our friends for their past con?
tributions and assistance, we again appeal
to them to help us in a more extensivo en?
terprise. It is tho design of this Associa?
tion to erect a "HOME AND SCHOOL" for
the orphans of tho South, both malo and
foniale, on an extensive seale, in tho city of
Richmond, Virginia. Asan inducement to
have tho building located there, the Com?
mon'"onneil of that city have guaranteed
a sufficient lot of land, in au elevated and
healthful location, and will increase tho
quantity of land if needed.
It is with a confident hope in a favorable
responso to this appeal to a public which
has never yet laded lo sustain a charitable
institution, that wo have entered into an
arrangement with Messrs. L. T. PALMER

It may Boom unnecessary to add a single
word to tho abo YO address, bat calls upon
the institution havo boon so numerous and
?tressing, and tho strngglo through which
t is now passing to widen tho cirolo of ite
charities, is of such an arduous uaturo,
that the management cannot too strongly

where an active participation in this addi
tional attempt to alternate tho sad condi?
tion of groat numbers of helpless children
rendered thns by the terrible war throng!
which wo havo passed. And, assuredly
what o vcr maj' have been the relative po
litical views of ladies and gentlemen here
toforc, ali must agreo that tho childroi
referred to could not. by any possibility
havo had any agency in bringing abou
t hoir present deplorable and destitute con
dition, and aro suitable objects for tin
charity of ah persons, of whatever shadi
of political opinion. Tho "Homo am
School" which they now moro particular!;
seek to establish and endow, will bo of iii
calculable bonoflt, by providing not onf
food and raiment for these helpless onot
bnt likewise solid and thorough education

to society at largo.

GERHAN HORSE POWDER !
For all Diseases to which a Horse is Liable.
THE varions diseases to .which that no?
ble and UH ctol animal, til o horse, is
subject, and the litt lo knowledge that is
known of thom by farriers and ignorant
ostlers, have occasioned many remedies to
bo offorcd to tho public under different
forms, with high encomiums, and sanc?
tioned by dignified names. Homo of these
aro injurious; others, at host, of little use,
and many entirely worthless, and do not
moot tho want. A good medicine, freo
from obied ions of this kind, has long been
desired by many gentlemen Who havo va?
luable horses. Wo therefore oder thu only
Sood medicine-tho truo "GERMAN
[ORSE POWDER," which bas proved so
efficacious ill all tho diseases, lt is pre?
pared from tho original rccipo of Dr. Hei
nitsh, of Germany. Its extraordinary vir?
tues aro attested to by thousands, and for
fifty years has stood, and still stands, first
in tho estimation of all experienced farm?
ors and agriculturists as the best medicine
for tho horse. It is recommended for
horses foundered by eating to excoss or
drinking cold water when heated, to such
as havo symptoms of glanders or aro ex?
posed to tho infection hy being with other
horses, for indigestion, distemper, hide?
bound, drowsiness, loss of appetite, inward
sprains, dobility, wasting of ilcsb, sore
.eyes, swelled legs, grease, mango, surfeit,
old coughs, for exhaustion from work, lt
carries off all foul humors, purities and
cools tho blood, and prevents horses be?
coming stiff and foundered. It is a stimu?
lus for weak stomachs, and renders the
limbs and skin soft and fino, giving a
smooth coat to tho hair. Ask for "Hei

The Great American Blood Purifier.
THE QUEEN'S DELIGHT, tho great
American Alterativo and Blood Puri?
fier, is tho most perfect vcgetublo com
Sound of alteratives, tonics, diuretics and
iaphoretics; making it tho most effective
invigorating, rejuvenating aiyl blood
cleansing cordial known to tho world.
In introducing this new and extraordi?
nary medicine to thc public, observation
loads ns to remark that too little attention
is paid to tho "lifo of all llosb," tho blood.
Many diseases, and, too, many complaints,
which havo their origin tu a vitiated state
of tho blood, aro treated only as symptoms
and results; whereas, if tho remedy bad
been applied to enrich tho blood and ren?
der it pure, both cause and effect would
havo been removed. The Queen's Delight
is offered to tho afflicted as a sure remedy
for those diseases arising from au impure
condition of tho blood. It has a direct
and specific action upon that fluid, and
consequently renders tho blood pure. It
is saul, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins to live than bo begins to
die, aud that thc characteristics of tho
living organism aro ceaseless change and
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless tho
blood is pure, in supplying tho waste tis?
sues with material, it must be thu eause of
innumerable ills and constitutional disor?
ders, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders, Consumption, Inllamma
tious, Fevers, Ac. Life and health is only
to ba maintained by tho circulation of puro
We therefore advise avery ona whoso
blood is in tho least vitiated by indulgence
I or excess, and whoso constitution is im
?laired by discaso and is suffering from
Uiuuniausm, Liver Complaint, Consump?
tion, Scrofula or King's Evil, Carbuncles,
Boils, Itching Humor of tho Skin, Erysi?
pelas, Skin Diseases, Tetter, Roughne ss of
tho Skin, Pimples, Blotches, Pains in tho
Bones, old Ulcers, Syphilis and Sypbilictic
Borea, Indigestion, Inflammation of tho
Rladder and Kidneys, Pains in thu Back,
Goneral Debility, and for all complaints
arising from deficiency and poverty of
blood, to use tho Queen's Delight.
Females of deiicaiu constitution, suffer
ing from weakness and depression ot mind
in consequence of those complaints which
nature imposes at the period of change,
have a pleasant and suro remedy in the
Children whoso fair and ruddy complex?
ion gave early promise of health and
beauty, but too soon become blanched and
palo by some hereditary taint of thu blood,
will havo the rich booii restored by using
tho Queen's Delight.
Tho uuaccliinatod and persons traveling
into warm countries will find tho Queen's
Delight a great protection from all malari?
ous affection and diseases which originate
in a chango of climate, diet and life.
Tho extraordinary and unprecedented
cures performed by tho Queen's Delight
Compound is attracting tho attention of
ovory ono, not only at homo, but abroad.
Tho merits of this compouud aro being
felt and appreciated everywhere. Hear
what they say of it in Now York: "It is a
remedy of much importance and value,
