Feelings of a Trllow I.vir FatUnt.
The New Orleans Bulhtin says the
following was written by a yellow lever
patient on the fifth day after being taken
sick. The labor of writing it caused a
relapse, which came very near costing
his life : '
The writer of this has had a glimpo
of purgatory, and the way it came to
fiass was thia : Tuesday morning, " Vcl
ow Jack," so callod, introduced himself
unceremoniously and at once proceeded
fo break every bone in this poor subject's
body. He was loft helplsss and pros
trated. Now appeared an army of little
devils, whr commenced prowling, prod
ding and digging to satisfy themselves
that not u bono was left unbroken. Hut
in spito of all the devils, the skull re
mained nnbrokeii. They made a detail
to keep continually beating the subject
on tho top of the head and downward
toward tho neck. Then they had a kind
of Greek lire, which, at regular Inter
vals, they poured down the spine of the
subject.
Having arranged all the.i prelimina
ries, they ot course thought they had him
dcaiL Now they commenced a curious
game : all would whirl around, then stop
all of a sudden and play with some
strange devices, that wore not cards or
dice, yet some of the sort, Tho subjoct
watched this game with intense iuterest,
so much so- that he almost forgot his
broken hones and unhinged joints. Thus,
bis mind and his spirits and the game
went spinning along together till nhout
dark, when a servant entered and aski.'d
if the subject whs sick. He rather
thought he was.
A delegat ion of neighbors now crowded
around the bed to learn how the sick man
felL He endeavored to briefly convey
some idea of his feelings. One of those
present asked if he would Uke a prepara
tion to check the fever. He answered he
might, provided it was neither calomel
nor quinine. No, it was a boma'patliie
remedy. 1 Well, the subject had no
objection. Soon after a physician made
his appearance, looked ralher serious,
gave bis instructions, and told the subject
to quench his thirst with almost any
decent drink. Now he happened to be
always thirsty, tried citrate of magnesia
for awhile but soon grew disgusted with
it, then tried lemonade, but with no
belter success. The novel idea struck
him to try pure cold water, and it turned
out to be exactly the thing.
The physician continued his visits, and
woald announce from day to day, with a
curious air, that the patient was better.
In the meantime, when not interrupted,
the subject and the spirits and the curi
ous game played by the latter, went
swimming along together as much so as
on the first day, but gradually the host
grew smaller; some of the spirits seemed
to have urgent business elsewhere, others
lagged, and all that ran around grew
more and more careless. But just in
exact proportion, the subject grew more
and more " powerful weak." Thursday
morning b w a!!-powerfi:!!y weak;
the Bpirits had all left but two, one rested
on each eyelid. With a kick and a snort
the subject flung back the bed cover,
landed on the floor, and said, "I ain't
dead yet"
With the assistance of a nurse, of
whose existence the subject now became
aware, he found his way back to bed
again. Friday morning he found him
self so powerfully weak that he did not
feel able to raise a finger. The doctor
came and looked rather more pleasant
than nsuol; said that everybody had
expected tht subject to die, but, con
tinued he, "You are not going to die;
you'll be out in a few days."
A brilliant idea struck the subject, nnd
summoning all his strength, lie rinsed
himself on his haunches, and told the
doctor he would liko to have something
to eat. The doctor suggested that the
subject might drink a cup of coffee with
boiled milk. Would a duck swim ? The
coffee was well mado and drank, and
tho patient gained Strength enongh to
attempt to write this, which bo mauaged
to do by eight hours' hard work, lying
on his back, and holding his pencil in
one hand and his paper in the other.
And the patient still lives.
The Pan Anglican Synod.
The Pan-Anglican Synod, as iL has
been rather idly termed, is certainly in
one rcsncct an interesting assembly. It
illustrates the remarkable manner in
which tho English Church has been re
cently copied in communities of English
descent The Bishop of Loaisiana, in
the address wo reported yesterday, ob
served that before the Declaration of
Independence there was not a single An
glican bishop on the American continent.
He has discovered, indeed, this omission
was tho chief cause of the success of the
United States in their revolt from our
allegiance. If this be a tradition of
American episcopacy, it must be re
garded, we fear, as another instance of
the "unhistorical" character of theolo
gians. It is to be hoped this is not un
Instance of the way in which history has
been manufactured by religious writers.
However, the fact remains, that within
a century there was not a single Angli
can bishop beyond these realms. There
are now no less than forty-three bishops
of the Protestant Episcopal Church in
the United States, deriving iheirsucces
sion from our own bishops, and as many
as forty-eight bishops in our colonies
A certain class of churchmen has had
quite a passion of late years lor export
ing bishops from the mother country.
Some of these have taken root Some
have found the climate uogenial, and
have either died out or are lingering
through a hopeless stage of decline.
What may be the result with ihese forty
eight bishops remains to be seen. How
evr, there tbey are a little copy of the
Church of England, sent ont from home,
like an iron church, "to be put together
on the spot" The result is, that thia
episcopate now outnumber! our own.
What remaini, then, to justify all
thia apparatus of special servicei and
private prayen issued by archepiacopal
authority, and the ambition! title of a
Pan-Anglican Synod T Nothing, it
see ins, but a few dettili of diocesan
arrangements for which, after all, the
asembly is not competent There is,
it is true, another purpose much spoken
of by the promoter of the Synod. It il
the reunion of Christendom and the
furtherance of intercommunion." It
is biri to se what the Synod is
to c"nthnte towH this object The
motl'r and the dsoghten retaia their
affection for each ether, bat it ii ot ap
parent Low the ipectacle of domestic
affection can be regarded ai any sign of
genera! friendship. The family may be
very happily ont'J at hom without
bating made any advance toward a

union with other families. The truth is
that here again the Synod has debarred
itself from tho only subject which would
advance its purpose, Christendom was
divided originaliy by differences of doc
trine, and if it is to bo again united it
must be by again receiving a substantial
unity of doctrine.
This is the point to which all endeuvors
are and must bo directed. We cannot
htitfeol some curiosity, therefore, whether
or no the bishops feel quito satisfied
with its hands tied. It ia to promote the
unity of tho fitith without considering a
singln point of fuith, and it is to promote
reunion without touching the real causes
of disunion. Irreverent persons might
deem it a schenio for doing good
to tho world by looking solemn, just
ns the outward semblance of solem
nity is supposed to have a good
effect on tittle, chiMroii. Is such a
spectacle edifying? Might not the
bishops havo done more for their objoct
if, according to their first resolution,
they lid, " each for himself," given all
their energies Io promote tho better
understanding of tho faith in their own
diotcsoY The days aro gone by for the
mere show of authority Io maiutaiu the
most respectable system in tho world.
The only support for a church in these
timei lies in "manifestation of the
truth," and that is a task which the
Synod has been compelled to decline.

Sketches in Holland.
A writer in the Pell Malt Gazelle
sketches very pleasautly some peculiari
ties of Dutch scenery and manners. We
make a few quotations:
THS OHD1TT OK HOLLAND.
Everything in Holland is interesting,
and almost everything is queer. There
is a piquant oddity iu the artificial na
ture of the whole country; the sandy
soil, which is a triumph of patient inge
nuity and creative skill ; the wind pitted
against the water to keep the land from
flooding; the canals instead of roads;
the ditches instead of hedges; and the
unvarying level of the broad flats, there
being no such thing as a rising ground
fifty feet high from one end of Holland
to the other. Perhaps nothing strikes
the English traveler in Holland so much
as the want of stones. You cannot find
so much as a pebble to throw at a dog
if, indeed, tbe Dutch dogs were not too
well behaved (which they are) ever to
suggest such on outrage. You do, it is
true, see in their proper places vast
masses of granite and largo blocks of
basalt; but all theso come from Norway,
and are brought here at great expense ;
and are economized as elsewhere people
economize porphyry and marble. In fact,
stones in Ilullatid ure as much an article
of import, of foreign merchandize, of
purchase, as wine is in England. Count
less vessels arrive, or have arrived, here,
laden with no other cargo.
THB DUTCH CITIES A CONTRAST.
Utrecht, Leyden, Haarlem, have an
aspect at once riant, venerable and com
fortable, which offers a singular combi
nation. The Hague looks like wealth
and luxury embodied ; probably it would
be impossible to find iu any part of the
wot Id a city which gives to the eye of a
stranger so vivid an impression of estab
lished, assured, habitual affluence of
quiet, refined, perhaps somewhat lazy
and sleepy enjoyment of life. Amster
dam has often been compared to Venice ;
but no two cities, with so many striking
points of resemblance, were ever so
strikingly unlike. Both rose by commerce
and have been as princes nnd mon
archs in the commercial world; both
are built on piles; both stand on what
nature intended to ue se or marsn; in
both tho streeis aro waterways; both.
alns. stink horribly iu August. But
Venice is of the past, Amsterdam of the
present ; V cnice is clad in gloomy black,
Amsterdam glitters in tho gayest colors ;
tho marble palaces oi Venice aro mi
nressivo with the solemn " vesture of
decay ;" tho docks and warehouses of
Amsterdam are enlivening from the
spirit of restless enterprise which they
embody ; lastly, the one city is all bust'e
and activity, the other all brooding
silence; the ono has thn splendor of life,
tho other the grandeur ol deatli.
Our Pacific Coast.
From San Francisco we have advices
which indicate that the enterprise of our
Pacilic coast is ns driving as ever. I he
Colorado river, reaching fur into Arizo
na, is to be navigated by n new steamboat
company, tins will lie ! ltnmciiae ad
vantage to trade.
From Alaska the cheering news comes
that the live Yaukecs have already run
up houso lots to a fabulous figure; while
in some cases they have not forgotten to
teach tho natives the method ol jump
ing claims." All kinds of valuable min
erals are found in our new possessions.
Of course they aro. Where is the terri
tory which we own where tbey are not
found in abundance? Provisions are
plenty. Deer are sold there for eighty
cents each. Think of that, you epicures !
The former Russian inhabitants are
delighted at being annexed to the
United States, and are already sharpen
ing up their ideas in contact with the
Yankee. We shall soon bear of an active
political campaign there, and before
long we shall have some fur clad, walrus-
eating Alaskans in our Congress. So
we march; and now we threaten to
awaken Japan and China iVeir York

Singular.
The other day the rar instance of a
burial thirty years after death occurred
at Berlin. The dead who lingered so
long above ground is Rachel Levin, tie
celebrated beauty, author and wit, tbe
wife of tbe late Uerr Von Varnhagen,
well known as a Prussian diplomatist
and writer on contemporary history.
Having a mortal fear of being buried
alive, the lady ordered in her testament
that the upper pirt of the coffin should
be made with a glass window, the coffin
constantly watched for a month after
death, and deposited in a special hall for
a period of tlrrty years all of which
was duly carried out
Singular Freak of Lightning.
A few evenings since, during the prev
alence of a storm, as a journeyman and
an apprentice boy were at work in a
carpenter shop at the navy yard, the
lightning entered in at the window,
passed down a law in the Lot' I hand,
struck a plane which the journeyman
was aiing, and passed down the bit, set
fire to the piece of lumber which tbe
jeuroeyman was dre"g, leaviag the
txiv and maa unharmed. After aome
difficulty the fire was extinguished by
those who werw witness-! to the occur

Upon the probable extent of the
incoming cotton crop, a correspondent
of the New York Timet, writing from
Charleston, S. C, speculates as follows:
Everybody engaged in the cotton trade
aro now busy making eftimates, from
such data as are obtainable, of the prob
able amount of tho crop now being
picked. The supply of the staple fur
nished by the Southern Stairs for the
years lHt;7-fiH will bn an nnomaly ns
compared with that of previous years,
inasmuch as it will represent more accu
rately the actual growth of tho season.
The increased need of the planters for
capital and the unprecedented scarcity
of ready mouey in this icction have com
bined to force every halo of last year's
crop to market, so that while quite one
fifth of the supply of lSu(!-f'.7 wal
mnde up of tho remains of former
crops which had been retained in
the interior, no considerable addition to
tho incoming crop need be expected
Irom a similar source. I find that the
most experienced factors, the shrewd
ness and correctness of whoso previous
estimates gives weight to their present
opinions, agree iu computing the crop of
18;7-f'.H at about 2,250,000 bales. This
calculation is based upon carefully com
piled statistics of the area of laud
planted and the quantity cf labor en
gaged in the cultivation of cotton, due
allowance being made for the loss inci
dent to casualties, past and prospective,
such as excessive rains, the ravages of
tho caterpillar, etc , as well as for the
diminished value of the labor of
the i'reedmen, owing to the di
version of thoir minds to matters
of politics and education. Of the ag
gregate, the Sea Island cotton, which has
suffered to a far greater extent from the
casualties referred to than the upland,
will constitute a very insignificant frac
lion. It is believed now that the whole
crop of long staple cotton in the South
will not exceed, if indeed it reaches,
20,000 bales. These e-itimates are made
upon the supposition that the first frost
will occur about the usual time. Should
the frost come very early or very lute,
the actual yield will, of course, be pro
portionately decreased or augmented.
An Assassin la Prison.
The assassin Berezowski, who at
tempted to kill the Czar, was taken to
Toulon on tbe 11th instant, to serve out
his sentence. A letter writer says :
As soon as he entered the precincts of
the boyne, the gray and yellow dress of a
cellular prisoner was taken off, and the
red jacket and green cap worn by those
condemned for life was put on. The
unfortunate young man was then taken
to the prison-forge his feet were already
swollen nnd painful from the long march
he had just come oft'. A heavy chain
was fastened on his left leg by a massive
ring; he didnot appear to suffer during the
operation, and quickly rose from the re
cumbeut position in which it is performed,
taking op the chain in his hand, which
otherwise drags on the ground. The
head was shaved, as is the custom, in
squares that is, one square perfectly
bare and on the next the hair is left
about half an inch long. In spite of
this disfiguring process and tbe green
cap, it was remarked that young Bere
zowski had a certain took o( distinction,
and even a gentle, intelligent expression
of countenance. One of thejailers who
was not aware that his fingers had been
injured, naked him what was the matter
with his hand. " It was the pistol," he
replied ; " I was cured in three weeks
by the application of cold water."
While his ten companies were having
their irons rivited on, Berezowski re
mained atiietlv inone corner of tho forge,
and spoke to no one. He will not be
chained to another-convict, as is usually
tho case, but-will remain in one of the
convict's rooms chained to a triangle of
iron, which is fastened to the camp bed
of the prisoners, and through which a
bar is slipped, thus preventing them from
moving beyond tho length of their chain.
In a month, unless the wretched young
man first turns mad, he is to be sent to
New Caledonia.
Wife Brokerage.
Not long since the Times contained au
account ol a man who came here Irom
Ottawa in search of a wife in the person
of a woman whoso husband's death he had
lutelv read of in tho Chicago Times. He
found tho woman already married again,
but solaced himself with taking to wife a
young girl who wos rocommended to him
at Short notice. Something occurred
yesterday at, the same ollicc where thn
former caso had happened, which, whilo
somewhat unlike, is not entirely dissimi
lar. It will not be difficult to perccive.from
a cursory survey of the name of Mehl
Bchlnegor, that August Mehlschlaeger is
a Dutchman. Nor will it be a particu
larly difficult thing to establish the na
tionality of Jacob .Marks. Well, Mehl
schlaegcr wanted a wife "the worst kind."
He pined and fretted till he could stand
it no longer as a bachelor, and deter
mined to capture a woman in some way.
Jacob Murks is a friend of his, oral least
of his money, and to him the German gen
tleman applied in his distress. He poured
out all his soul, told him how his " life
was sad, and dark, and dreary," and
asked his advice. Marks was up to the
emergency, and offered to find his friend
a wile for $1:10. The offer was accepted,
and the wife was proenred. But Mehl
schlaeger had not up to yesterday paid
over but $50 of the wife money, and
Marks wasn't going to stand thia " If
anything in this world, argued he,
was worth 139. lor Uod s sake, wasn t
a good wife?" and that was the kind of
article Marks claimed he had procured.
So he brought suit before Justice Sboene
wald yesterday for the other $80, but
before tbe justice could get a chance at
them the matter was settled. Tbey all
went home. Chicago Times.
Abandoned Lands.
General Carlin has recommended, in a
report to General Howard, that all
abandoned lands and other property in
Tennessee, held by the Bureau, except
that seized from the Confederate govern
ment. be turned over to its former own
ers, making application for its restoration
unnecessary. Many have preferred to
leave their property in the bands ot tie
government ralher than risk insatiable
creditors and the auction block. It bai
really become a bnrden to the Bureau.
The matter has been referred to the
President, and some action is looked for
shortly. If the recommendation il acted
upon, hundreds of thoutandi of acres will
be ihrown back opnn their owners, with
11 the responsibility thereto attached.
Nearly all these landi are located in
Eist "Tennessee, and were libeled for
confiscation by the Unionists during the
war. Middle and West Tenneaie has
very little abandoned property. -Vfl-
