''Let our fast Censures PHONIX. BY J. A. SELBY. Attend the True Event." COLUMBIA, S. C., SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 13, 1872. VOL. VIII- NO. 177. A DEAD WOMAN TURNED TO WAX. Ten years ago, this month, Mrs. Anna Heese, mother of Mrs. Mary Owens, of this city, died from over-work, and was buried in the Lakeville Cemetery. At the time of her death, she was in her fifty-third year, a medium-sized, well kept woman, and weighed, os nearly as oan be remembered, about 150 pounds. Some time ago, Mrs, Owens deter? mined to remove her mother's romaine to the cemetery hore, and on Saturday last the grave was opened by the oity sexton, 13. Peak, and Mr. Deal, of the firm of Myers & Deal, and they found themselves unable to handle the coffin, on account of its great weight, lt was supposed that the corpse had bucomo petrified, and on ruisirjg the coffin from the grave, it was opened, and although petrifaction had not taken place, tho corpse was as perfect OB the day it was placed in the coffin. After it had been brought to this city, n more careful exa? mination was given it. lt was esti? mated to weigh about 200 pounds. Tho whole body was perfectly preserved, even to such parts as tho tougue, which oould be moved back and forth in the month. The color of the face was natu? ral, except for its waxy appearance. The shroud when exposed to the air fell to dust. Thin is the first instance known hero of this kind of conversion of the flesh of a dead body into what is techni? cally called "ndipooere"-the product of the decomposition of the flesh, which looks like apermucetti-although thora aro many cases on record where the bodies of (soldiers who were buried in trenches, iu low, wet grounds at Shiloh, have been re-interred. This ohauge rarely occurs except whare the in torment has been made in moist places, as was brought to public notice in 1871 at the Cemetery of tho Innocents in Paris. \ South Bend (Ind ) Tribune. PROQREBS OF THE RAILROAD NEAR GnEBNVlliiiE.- L'he link connecting the Greenville and Columbia Railroad with the Air Line, was finished hist Saturday, and a construction train will now pass to the maia line. Track laying will at once commence in the direction of Spartau burg, and it is expected that one and one-fourth milos Der day will be laid. The Superintendent informs us that six? teen miles of track has been laid from Spartanburg in this direction. From this it will be seen that but a few weeks can elapse before the track entire will be completed to Spartanburg, and, the su? perintendent of construction informs us, will be ready for tho cars by the 1st of November.-Greenville Enterprise. Gov. SCOTT'S LIBEL, SUIT.-Gov. Soott has received a letter from his agent, Jadge Tom Mackey, who was sent to New York to commence legal proceed? ings against the New York Tribune, for its alleged libel in publishing a state? ment made to one of its reporters by M. R. Delany. The letter stated that the declaration in the oase was filed on Tues? day, the 8th instant, in the United States Circuit Court for the Southern Circuit of New York, Mr. Henry Clews, the banker, signing the bond for the costs, and that the case would probably como up for trial about tho second Monday in De? cember. The declaration was expected to be published in the New York Times of tho 9th instant. The Fronoh are a qneer people, bat they are always true tu tho instincts of their race, however they may disappoint the expectations of other people. Ger? many conquered Alsace and Lorraine, bnt she did not conquer the Freneh peo? ple who live there; and they have packed ap their goods and chattels, and bidding adieu to their old homes, are fleeing into France by the hundred and thousand. It is a modern exodus not exactly pat down in Bismarck's Bible of Calcula? tions, bat a chapter in the Chronicle? of oar time nevertheless. To the Voters of Richland. JAMES DAVIS and N. E.
