FREMONT, Nov. 19th. L. Miscellaneous Selections Remarkable Case of Fright. A Man's Hair Turned White in a Night. A Paris correspondent of the Nation re ntes the case of a well-known mining en gineer, who is vouched for as being a man of talent and education, of cool and meth odical temperament, and about thirty years of age, and has become, most unexpect edly to himself, the hero of a nine days wonderment on the part of the Parisians, from tho fact that his hair, black and usu ally luxuriant, nas been wmtenea in a single night under tne impression ot a dream. "We should not give place to the narra tive of this singular adventure," says the editor of the Pays, in whose columns the incident was originally mentioned, "were not that Mr. C is personally well known to us as a truthful and honorable n, and has himself furnished us with the account we publish, affirming on oath the absolute exactness of every detail herein given." From the account thus given to the public it appears that M. C , when in- siiectiug certain mineral tracts in Brittany, stopped one night at a little roadside inn 9 few hundred yards distant from a mine which he had never seen, but which he proposed visiting the next day. . Having walked many miles in the course of the day, M. C , on reaching the inn, felt tired. He accordingly went to bed early, fell asleep at once, and dreamed, he asserts the following dream : lie thought lie had just been appointed to the managership of the mine 111 question, anil no was busy in superintending the work of the miners, when the owner of the mine appeared on the ground. This man, rough and "ill-bred, addressed the new manager rudely, re proaching him with his inactivity, adding: "Instead of standing there, with your arras folded, seeing other men work, you had better go down into the mine and draw the plan of it, as you engaged to do." "I will go down and begin the drawings at once," replied the young engineer, hurt and annoyed atthemannerof his employer. Placing himself forthwith in the basket, he ordered the men at the windlass to let him down in the mine. Tbis was done; the basket reached the bottom, and then summoning a couple of the workmen to precede him with their lamps, he explored the various galleries of the mine, and hav ing made a plan of the workings, returned to tho bottom of the shaft, got into the basket, and gave the signal for the ascent As he placed himself in the basket he re marked the great thickness of the rope which served to hoist it, and calculated that, the mine being unusally deep, the ascent could scarcely be accomplished in less than a quarter of an hour. He had been ascending thus two or three minutes vhen, chancing to raise his eyes, he espied what seemed to him to be an abrasion of the rope, by which he was be ing drawn up. Startled by this appear ance, he fixed his eyes on the portion of the rope which had attracted his attention, and saw distinctly that tho rope was cut a few feet above his head, just out of the reach of his haud. His terror at this dis covery was such that he nearly fainted. Rousing himself, by force of will, from the stupor of apprehension which had so nearly overcome him, he compelled himself to calmness, and then set. himself again to examine tho rope. Perhaps he was mis taken; he would look again. "But no; he was not mistaken. The ropo had rubbed against some projection of the rocky walls which hemmed him in, and its strands were untwisting slowly, but visibly. At the injured point the thickness of the mas sive cable was already reduced to less than an inch. The unfortunate man felt that his doom was sealed; the conviction of the utter hopelessness of his position, chilled him to the very marrow ot ins nones, lie irieu to call out but his tongue seemed frozen. Moreover, ho felt that, even if he could make himself heard (which was totally imposible, as he was now half way up), no human aid could reach hiin. Looking upwards, he could seethe the daylight at the mouth of the shaft, but distant, like a star. Gazing downwards, over the edge of th basket, at a depth that made him dizzy in till no of was has thin y us, the this the the who U n 1 1 amir trt lwi H.-tu'n fs hi i. I onn like so. many glow worms, the lamps of the miners. And the basket, meantime, mounted higher and higher every instant, tho rope cracking audibly under the in creasing strain of the ascent. The unfor tunate engineer saw clearly that there was no possibility of escaping the horrible fate awaiting him, and could almost count the seconds that would elapse ere the breaking of the rope must precipitate him into the earlul void below, buch was the inten sity of his anguish that he was tempted to abridge its duration by throwing him self down at once, instead of waiting any longer tne inevitable instant. 'As he hesi tated the basket reached the mouth of the shaft. He was saved ! .With a loud cry he leaped from tho basket, awakening as be felt once more the solid earth beneath his feet -The horrible adventure was only dream, but M." C was trembling, ex- hausted, bathed in perspiration, and inca pable of making a movement or uttering a sound. . After a time he recovered his self command so far as trfbe able to ring for help. The people of the inn hastened to obey the Summons, but could not at first recognize their customer of the previous evening, tor his luxuriant raven hair bad become perfectly gray. And, stranger than even this physical evidence of the vi olence of the emotions he had undergone during his troubled slumbers, there lay upon his bed, and evidently drawn by his own hand, a plan of the adjacent mine which he was to visit on the following day. but which he had never seen, and of whose internal arrangements he had no idea; and this plan, so unaccountably produced, proved on examination of the mine, to be absolutely correct in every particular. bo much for the story vouched for by one of the five "leading journals" of this capital ; its explanation 1 leave to the inge nuity of your readers. Temperance and Water. Mr. Gough, the distinguished temper ance lecturer, has thrilled many an audi ence with the preculiar power of his elo- luence. A sorrowful tale or an amusing anecdote he not only tells, but acts out with inimitable power. Some of our read era have been thrilled with his "eulogy on water, which he has often declaimed, and never without producing an impression, Tho following we copy from a contempo rary. It will repay a persual. "Ihere"' answered the missionary, in tones of thunder, and pointing his motion lingers at the matchless Double Spring gushing up m two strong columns, with a sound like a shout of joy from the bosom the earth. "There," he repeated, with look terrible as lightning, while his enemy actually trembled at his feet, ihere is the liquor which God the eter nal brews for his children. Not in the simmering still, over smoky fires, choked with poisonous gases, and surrounded with the stench of sickening odors and rank corruption does your Father in heaven prepare the precious essence of life, the pure cold water. But in the green glade and grassy dell, where the red deer wanders, and the child loves tb play, there trod brews it; and down in the deep val ley, where the fountains murmer, and the rills siug; and high on the mountain top, where the naked granite glitters like gold the sun, vhere the storm clouds brood and the thunder tones crash; and faraway out on the wide, wide sea. where the hur ricane howls music, and the big waves roar the choroiis, 'sweeping the march of God ;' there Ho brews it, the beverage of lire, health-giving water. And every where it is a thing of beauty ; gleaming in the summer rain, shining in the ice-gem, the trees all seem turned to living jew spreading a golden veil over the set ting sun, or a white gauze around the mid night moon; sporting in the cataract, sleeping in the glacier, dancing in the hail shower; folding its bright snowy-curtains soltly about the wintry world; and weav- iug the many colored iris, that seraph's zone of the sky, whose woof is the sun beam of heaven, all checked over with celestial flowers by the mystic hands of refraction. Still always it is beautiful that blessed life-water ! No poison bub bles on its brink; its loam brings not mad nes and murder; no blood stains its liquor glass; pale widows and starving orphans weep not burning tears in its clear depths; drunkard's shrieking ghost curses it from the grave in words of eternal despair Speak out, my friends, would you ex- hange it for that demon s dnnk alco hol?" A shout like the roar of the tempest answered, "io! Opinions Change. Twelve months ago it was thought im possible and absurd, bv the greater num ber of southern whites, to allow negroes to testify in the courts. The right to give evidence in cases where ouly negroes were interested was granted with hesitation ; the propriety of allowing a negro to testify in cases where white men were concerned was denied as a matter of course; nobody would listen to argument upon the subject But experience bas shown that the fears the whites were groundless, and Gov ernor Patten, of Alabama, ssys in his mes sage to the legislature, delivered a few ays ago: The right to testify in courts, in certain case., was extended to frerdmen at your last session. The law authorizing this testimony necessarily experimental; but experience demonstrated that it is productive of good results. Colored persons are permitted to tes- fy in cases where they are interested, and when there is every inducement for false swearing which may be reasonably supposed to influence class of witnesses. Bid, turn with the?. slronff temptatintis to commit poritry, the tcstimo- of freedmen hat b'en fourul valuable in ascer taining the truth. With this experience before I think that the public good would be pro moted by removing all restraints upon the com petencv of freedmen to testify in our courts. Their evidence, like that of all other witnesses. would he carefully weighed by tho courts and juries, and estimated t lis proper value. Governor Patton deserves credit for this frank testimony. He adds that the ne groes, except those in the cities, have done well, and complains that some employers have violated their contracts, which he de sires the legislature to look ta If the legislature will only give to the negroes same opportunity to work, and to re cover their wages, whictTother men have, they will need no further protection. A correspondent of the Timet, writing from Columbus, Georgia, relates some facts which shows this: . I'lanters who have failed lo pay their hands year, or who have earned a repulatinn among freedmen as hard and unjust taskmakers, by manner in which they have treated them during the past year, cannot, secure labor for the future tt any price. On the contrary, those have paid we'l, fed woll, and behaved well generally toward tl eir cinrlovees, find but lit tle difficulty in obtaining the best o.f labor. In voluntarily and without premeditation, tho reedraei have organized themselves into pro tective association, prompted by mutual inter est, which is as effective as any mechanics' anion in the N orth, and already the South h: commenced to feel the power of labor over cap ital. Slowly, but surely and by luoh indirect influences at this general protective combina tion, the freedmen are working a revolution in sentiment here which will finally 'reenH in their obtaining enlarged privileges from the hands of those who are now most violently opposed to them. It is probable that many of the freed men will refuse to contract at all during the coming year, preferring to work by the day, or week, or month, at the case may be, and as their own idea of self-interest will be best advanced. They know very well now that the labor laws of the different States are ineffectual, and that they cannot be compelled to assume obligations unwillingly. As long as they can keepclearof a charge of vaerancy, they know tbat they can come and go as they please. It ia astonishing to observe in them what seems to be almost in tuitive knowledge of their rights, and it ia as equally remarkable to learn from tbem the fact that they, in a majority ot cases, know and un derstand their legal rights under the civil rights bill as well as if .they bad been the originators of that law themselves." The same writer tells us that many of the ablest and most industrious negroes are thinking of removing to Liberia, or elsewhere out of this country. If any considerable number should thus abandon this country,' it would cause serious tem porary embarrassment to the -Southern States, where labor has always been scarce, and new enterprises for the development ot tneir natural resources nave been dim- cult for this reason. Opinions have changed rapidly in the Southern States on many important sub jects; and it is certain that greater changes still impend. As industry and enterprise revive in that part of our country, and the demand for labor, already greater than the supply, is doubled and quadrupled, as it will be within the next two years, South em men will see the necessity, not only of keeping aH the workmen they have, bnt of giving them and their children all the skill and industry which only education and the fullest possession of equal rights and privileges can give men. The slave system trained white men in the belief that the more ignorant a workman is the more valuable he is to his employer. This monstrous and silly doctrine was asserted by many influential Southern men. But it will not take long to discover there wha' has long ago been known in the free North ern States, tbat the more intelligent a workman is, the more valuable he is to his employer and to society ; and that the men who destroynegro schools lnlhct a pecum ary loss upon all the employers of negro labor in the region. Ia the Western States the demand for labor bas been for years so great, that their legislatures have held out extraordinary inducements, to draw workmen to them o far from withholding any rights, they have offered publicly the utmost limit of rights and privileges to all who would come. In Indiana, for instance, to induce foreign immigration, foreigners were made naturalized citizens in a year after their ar rival ; and there has been a sharp rivalry between all the Northwestern States to ob tain the largest number of workmen. Such a rivalry will, before long, be seen in the Southern States also; indeed, we have no doubt that the entire equality before tbe law guaranteed to tbe negro in South Carolina will carry to that State consider able numbers not only of blacks but of whites; and tbe State which first estab lishes a good free school system for the negroes, will draw to its borders the most industrious blacks from all the surround ing States. -N. T. Post. A True Heroine. One of the greatest heroes of this country is Miss Delia Webster, who resides 111 Trimble county, Ky., nearly op posite Madison, Indiana. Some years be fore the war she procured a hue estate, and made it her home. Being a strong abolitionist,' she soon involved herself in trouble on account of the negro, and since the abolition of slavery, she continues in hot water on account of the same ditin guished persouage. Before the war she lesired to help as many of them North as possible, and since tho war she is anxious to educate them as much as possible. She recently got together some lumber which was being seasoned for a colored school house, which she was building at her own expense. Accordingly, last Ihursday the barba rians of that county and vicinity set fire to her barn and out-buildings, as well as to this lumber which she had. consecrated to education and civilization. This is about the twentieth time she has been served in that way. She has had seventeen dwelling houses and four barns destroyed from time to time by her neigh bors. lier farm produces an immense crop of blackberries, which her neighbors annually plunder, going so far as to seize upon such as she succeeds in gathering, on their way to market A year ago last iVugust they upset a whole load in the river. But she holds on desperately. How she stands all these losses we do not know. But she is a brave woman, whose autobi- rrapliy should be written, and who when dead will deserve,' and probably receive a monument. (Jin. Jimeg. It of A Capital Story. A capital story is told of a young fellow ho on Sunday strolled into a village church, and during the service was electri fied and gratified by the sparkling of a couple of eyes which were rivetted upon his face. After the service, he saw the possessor of the shining orbs leave the church alone, and, emboldened by her glances, he ventured to follow her, his iieart aching with rapture. He saw her look behind, and fancied she evinced some emotion at recognizing him. He then quickened his pace, and she actually slackened hers, as if to let him come up with her but we will permit the young gentleman to tell the rest in his own way.

A'large number of the neighboring gentry were present at the funeral. OaUinnani describes a singular formal ly with which executions in Spain are ac companied. After the executioner bas performed his office be is surrounded by gendarmes and loaded with chains and taken to prison, and thenee before an ex amining magistrate, when the following dialogue takes place: "You are accused having taken tbe life of a man." "Yes," answers the executioner, "it is true." "What was your motive for the crime?" lo obey tbe law and fulfill the mission confided to me by justice." An indict ment is then drawn up, and on the follow- ng day tbe man is taken before the tribu nal, which immediately pronounces an acquittal, and the prisoner is liberated after his confinement of twenty-four hours. Four men were executed by tbe guillo tine, at Brest The evening before the execution every medical man in Brest re ceived an invitation from Dr. Duval, Di of the Boird of Health, to meet him the am pi theatre of the hospital at six the following morning.

At 6 :20 the hospital van was seen to cross the court of the PupiIIes la Marine at a hard gallop, and in a seconds four lifeless trunks were thrown on the dissecting tables, precisely eight minutes after they had ceased to exist The sight was indeed startling. The bodies appeared shrunk to the size of that of a child the neck utterly disap peared, and in its place a frightful, gaping wound. JNext to tbe bodies, rolled up in apkins, were four livid heads. The work dissection commenced instantly. The nerves quivered, and the flesh was warm.

A pencil placed betweeu the teeth of one ; it bitten through and smashed as though had been made of glass.

Music in every home, is thus eloquently advocated by Rev. Mr. Ware: - - "I regard rooiic as combining in hap piest proportion, instruction and pleasure, as standing at the head " of the home evening enjoyments.- What a never fail ing resource have those homes which God has blessed with this gift!. How many pleasant family circles gather nightly about the piano 1 How many-a home it vocal with the voice of song or psalm I In other homes in how many village homes the father's viol led the domestic harmony, and sons with clarionet or flute or manly voice, and daughters sweetly and clearly filling in the intervals of sound, made joyful noise I There was then no piano to the house of this generation, the great, the universal boon and comforter. One pauses and blesses it, as he hears it through the open farm-house window, or detects its sweetness stealing out amid the jargons of the city an angel's pension upon a wil derness of discord, soothing the weary brain, lifting the troubled spirit, pouring fresh strength into the tired body, waking to worship, lulling to rest Touched by the hand we love, a mother, sister, wife is it not a roinistrant of love to the child, to man a household deity, now meeting our moods, answering to our needs, sinking to depths we cannot fathom, rising to bights we cannot reach, leading, guiding, great and grand and good, and now stooping to our lower wants, the frolic of our souls reverberating from its keys f The home that has a piano, what a capacity for evening pleasure and profit has it! Alas! that so many wives and mothers should speak of their ability to play as a mere accomplishment of the past, and that children should grow np looking on the piano as a thing unwisely kept for company and show." Sunday Readings. The Minister's Salary. A worthy miller so Dr. Chapin tells the story in Dr. Dunbar's memoir was pained by once hearing that the minister was going away for want of support, the church having decided they could no lon ger raise his salary. He called a meeting, and addressed his brethren very modestly, for he was one of the poorest among those comfortable farmers. He asked if want of money were the only reason for this change and if all were united in desiring the ser vices of the pastor, could they keep him. There was but one voice in reply. The pastor was useful and beloved; bnt the flock was so poor! -Weil, said the miller, "1 have a plan by which I can raise his salary without asking one of you for a dollar, if you will allow me to take my own way to do it I will take the responsibility for one year. Have I your consent?" Of course they could not refuse this, al though they expressed surprise, knowing the miller to be a poor roan. Ihe year drew to a close. The minis ter had been blessed in his labors, and no one had been called on for money. When they came together, the miller asked the pastor if his wants had been supplied, and his salary promptly met? He replied in the affirmative. When the' brethren were asked if they were any poorer than at the beginning of the year, each one replied : "iNo, and asked how they could be when their church privileges had been so mys teriously paid for. He asked again, "Is any man poorer for keeping the ministerf and the reply was the same as before. "Then," he said, "brethren, I have only to tell you that yon have paid the salary the same as you always did, only more of it, and with greater promptness. Tou re member you told me to take my own way in this matter; and I have done so. As each of you brought his grist to the mill, I took out as much grain as I thought your portion, and laid it away for the sal ary. When harvest was over, I sold It and have paid the minister regularly from the proceeds. You confess that you are no poorer; so you never missed it and therefore made no sacrifice. Now, sup pose we stop talking about poverty, and about letting our minister go, and add enough to his salary to make us feel that we are doing something." Dr. Dunbar used to say, "O, for a miller in every church I" An Astronomer's Prayer. These are the words in Kepler's Har mony of World: Thou who, by the light of nature, has Kindled in us the longing after the light of thy grace, in order to raise us to the light of thy glory, thauks to thee, Creator and Lord, tbat thou lettest me rejoice in thy works. Lo ! I have done tbe work of my life with that power of intellect which thou hast given. I have recorded to men the glory of thy works, as far as my mind comprehend their infinite majesty. My senses were awake to search, as far as I could, with purity and faithfulness. If I, worm before thine eyes, and born in the bonds of sin, have brought forth anything that is unworthy of thy counsels, inspire me with thy Spirit that I may correct it If, by the wonderful beauty of thy works, nave been led into boldness; if 1 have sought my owu honor among men as I ad vanced in the work which was destined to thine honor, pardon me in kindness and charity, and by thy grace grant that my teaching may be to thy glory and the wel fare of all men. Praise ye the Lord, ye heavenly harmonies, and ye that under stand the new harmonies, praise tbe Lord. Praise God, 0, my soul, as long as I live. rom bim, through bun, and in him, is all, the material as well as the spiritual; all that we know not yet, for there is much do that is undone." Examples. Example is a living lesson. . The life peaks. Every action has a tongue. Words are but articulate breath. Deeds are the fac similes of the soul; they pro claim what is within. The child notices the life. It should be in harmony with goodness. Keen is tbe vision of youth ; every mark is transparent If a word is thrown into one balance, a deed is thrown into the other. Nothing is more import ant than that parents should be consistent sincere word is never lost; but advice, counter to example, is always suspected. Both cannot be true; one is false. A Beautiful Belief. Two angels keep watch npon each mor an angel on the right and an angel the left taking note of every word and action. At the close of each day they fly p to heaven with a witten report, and are replaced by two similar ones the following ay. According to eastern tradition, every good action is recorded ten times by tbe angel on the right, and if the mortal commit a sin, the same benevolent spirit says to the angel on the left "forbear for seven hours to record it; peradventure he may repent and pray and obtain forgive ness." There is much power in a friendly visit, single call at the right time, nnder cer tain circumstances, arid with benevolent motives. Gifts and alms are well but your presence is the greatest attention. 'When was in Home, he sought me out very diligently and found me. The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day." It is the devotion of the hypocrite that grows cold, from not being warmed with the crowd and the thrqng. Drx Swtk,
