J "I don't know which way to turn to get the full tnilorin' (tone, now Mirandy Dng ott' beeu, and und money left to her," ;8itid, in an nggrlpved tone, tho hnxoni mis itrcRs of the Widliy jpoor-farm, aa sho briskly hung festoons of pumpkins, gar ners of tlio j'l-llowcst of tlio summer sun Eliinu, nloug the beams of the great wood shed chamlier. "The widow 1'ingree, from over Sharon way, she's so wasteful, I do Clare it makes my blood run cold to see hor fcnltin' nnd slashin' into good cloth; and iunerlino Johnson she's 80 scanMu', the meu-folks all looks like scarecrows, with their le-:s and arms a-stickin' out. Mi- randy's got faculty." ".Seems if 'twii'u't no niore'n vesterdnv itli at I was carryin' victuals to keep that cijhu i rum sinrvur, and now she s an heir ess, and here I be. Well, the Lord's ways ain't onr'u." A little old woman, twisted all awry by a pariuyuc suock, who was leelily assist ing the poor-mistress, uttered these reflec tions in a high-keyed, quavering voice, l-ihe was called old lady l't nseley, and a inlo ol aristocracy encircled h.r, although she had been in tho poor-house thirty years, for her grandfather had beeu the tirst minister of H el by. "1 decline, if there ain't Mirandy a-comiu' up tho lane this blessed minute! Talk about nugi-U, you know. .Seems if ue looked kinder peaked and meacUin', though most gen'ally as pert's a lizard. If thing's was as they used to be, I should jest sing out to her to come right up here: Tiut, beiu' she's such an heiress, I s'poso I'd bett er go down and open the trout door." liut before the brisk poor-mistress could roach the front door her visitor had ontered thf kitchen. "I've been kind of low spirited, aud, Jhinks I, if there is a pluce where I could iot chippered up it's down to the poor liouse, where it's always so lively and sociul.lo; aud if Mis' Benii-ain't a-goiu' to (send for me I'll j. st go over aud lind out -the reason whv." The speaker, who had seated herself in a roi'king-i'hair, took otr her rough straw hat ,oud funn xl herself with it energetically, rocking nieunwhile. She was about mid way in the thirties, plain nnd almost coarse of feature, but wlih a suggestion of ten derness nbout her large mouth that soft piled her whole face. Klie had, too, a rigor and freshness which were attiact vo like the bloom of youth. "I was jest sayin' to old lady Peaseley Jthat I didn't know how I was a-goin' to pfotalong without you; but I wouldu't 'a' (thought of askiu' you to come, bein' you're so rich now." "Bo I a-goin' to lay by aud twiddle my thumbs and listen to folks advisin' of me jest beenuse I ain't obliged to work? I'm Mil beat out now doiu' uotuiu.' fciince I've thought the old place grau'ther's farm, jj oii know I don't seem to be much belter cir. I can't go to farmin's it this fall ; and what can a lone woman do ou a farm, auv bowf" "Iarmin' is a kind of poor business for a woman; but 1 do hope, Miraudy, you r.iu't a-goiu' to marry that poor, pigeon breasted, peddliu's cretur that's haugiu' 1'ound here. Miranda flushed to the roots of her thick lilai'k hair. "It looks belter to see a man round on a farm, if he c-au'b do any Uniiij but set on the rhoppiu'-hlock and whistle,'' she said, iu tc.it ly surveying her hat-crown. "If you want to get married, Miraudv, it seems f you ought to have a stidJy, likely man." "I don't want to get married. I ain't ne-er thought of stieu a thing since well, y '. know all about it. Mis' Heiuis, so I may as n'ell say right out since Kphruin took up v.iih M'lissy Wliitin'." "ICphrum Spencer was a mean scamp to servo you so,'1 said Mrs. Jiemis, hotly. "Now, Mis' Demis, don't you say any thing r.;aiust Kphruin. You and me has nl vavs beeu friends, but I can't stand that, anyhow. Kphium would have kept his p -.muse to me fair and square, but 1 saw pl'iiu enough thut ho had given his heart to her iSht was red -and- hit f-coinoleeted, and her hair curled natural, ami she'd net er done anything but keep school, and lier haiiL's were jest as sott nnd while, and a iiiau's nv liu's iiin'l like a woman's auy-he,-; if llpln uin hud been hump-backed, or nil scarred up so's't he'd seare 1 Hlk-i, like old Mr. l'muty, it wouldn't 'a' made n- y tlitference to me, so lou as he was Kphruin. The Lord made luen diil'eient, and I s'pose it's al1 right; but sometimes it seems kind of hard." The large, firm Hi e'th quivered like a child's. "She was a reg'lar little spitfire, Molissy V1 'lUin' was; th re wa'n't notliiu' to her but temper. I'll warrant Kphruin Spencer bus got his coiiie-uppniice before tliis tune," said tile poor-niif,u ess, wilti salis fm li in. "Well, I thiol, it's real provi it mini tlirt you don't want to 'et m irried, Mi. a ml y, f.u- us like as not y uu'd et souie- lulV It. lit. would spend till your money. I told 'em I didn't believe you was goiu' to till, 'J uo t ii !i that poor siiek of a book- S i't." "O, Mis' lii inis, I s'poso I be goiu' to liavo him:" said Miranda, dejectedly. "He thinks he's consu noted, and t thought 1 could doctor him up, and 'twould be u Iie for the money. And ho w as a minis ter nin e, thoiie h it was some queer kind ii a (lenoiiiiuai ion that 1 never lo-ard of, mid lout st-e'iicd kind of . dilj in' ; and Ins ei in w es cut oil , aw ay oil' in 1'liila lelphy ien years a;o, and yet he can feel it -i u in ;eiu.' And lie's kind of slim and nriu', an 1 not so unhandy to have roitud lis some lieu would be. And, anyhow, J'e c,lva him my plointse." "'Mirjn ly, 1 tlnlo't think you was so foolish as tli:,t .led hi. il ttu Impose! tor, us ",e cs not." "Kvervthlng that I've tried to do since 1'ncle I 'iiinens lelt me that money folks Imve called me fonliih or crayy, niid I nl () m reckoned sennihle bufore, if 1 was homely. Abijnli's folkn warn me ninst lottln' .loho's folkn have it, and John's folks analnst Abijah's, ami they sny that hanks burst up and railroad stocks are risky, and I'll end by bein' on the tow n. 1 never heard anything about my bein in danger of eomln' on to the town before. I put my savin's in an old stockin' between my beds, and wa'n't be holden to anybody for ndvice nor any thing. I tell von. Mis' Hemis, there ain't a mite of comfort in riches to them that's jrot nobody but t hriinolvea to do for. Now, I've be mi wantin' a good black silk for a long sp.

I can po and buy one right nut, anil 1 don't want it. And only see what trouble I've iot into about mnrrvin.' I can't eat my victuals nnd I don't enjoy my nieet'n' privileges, and I don't even earn much a bout knotvln what's goln' on. Thn Hible says rich folks have got to go through the eve of a needle before they enn get into tlio K mgdom of lb even, and seems jest as if that was what I wns a-doin.' " "1 don't think that's jest the way it rends, Milan ly; but if it's aconsolin' idee to you ." "I hain't any too much consolation, and that's a fact. Hut it does seem real good to be here; and if you'll jest send ono of the boys after my "things I'll stay. I locked up nnd lelt my bag on the back door-stop." The poor-mistress conlided to old lady Penseley that "there wasn't ns much satis faction in havin' Mirnndy ns if she hadn't got proputty, even if she didn't seem to feel it none; she couldn't help feeliu' ns if the minister 'n' his w ife hnd come to tea;" and she opened the best room, with all Its glories of hair-cloth furniture, preservd funeral wreaths, and shell Hunker Hill Monument, and had rhe spare chamber swept aud garnished. The poor-house was certainly a good place in which to get "chippered up." There were few happier households in the country ; there was not one where jollity rei-ned as it did there. From t'aptaiu llozekiah Hulterlield, generally known as tap'n 'Kiah, uu octogenarian who was regarded as an oracle, down to Trendy Morgan, a half witted orphan, the inmates of tho poor house had an enjoyment of living astonish ing to behold, ft had been hinted attown nioeting that thn keeper of the poor-farm w-iis a "leetlo mile too generous and oasy goiug," especially as he insisted upon furnishing the paupers with "store" tea and collee, w hereas bis predecessor, Hiram Judkins, had made them drink bayherry tea, a refreshment which old Mrs. Gerald, a pauper whose w its were wandering, and who was familiarly knowu as "Maim Hony," because she cherished a conviction that she wns the empress Josephine, de clared w as "uo more cousolin' than meadow hay." Seth liemis nnd his wife made the farm pay; so the town voted to wink at the store-tea. And they suited the paupers w hich wns e eu more dillieult than to suit the town oIlicerH. Miran la's arrival had created quite au .excitement among the inmates of the poor house. They had all heard that she had fallen heir to almost ten thousand dollars, and there was curiosity to see how she would comport herself uuder this great accession of fortune., Miranda stoutly resisted the charms of the best room, and sat down with tho paupers in the great kitchen after supper. Kor the spare chamber she showed somo weakness, for the little back chamber winch she usually occupied during her visits io me poor-uiriu wua next the Oly Cowden's room, ami Oly had a way of wrapping ou her wall iu the dead of the ni :ht for somebo ly to bring her a roasted onion to avert a peculiarly bad dream to which she was subject, and tho next room on the other side wan occupied by Jo Hi isooe, who had a habit of playing ou his violin at most unseemly hours, and, as poor uue iino comouiroun a terrible shipwreck, in which ho hnd lost, by freezing, both his feet aud several of his flngors, which latter loss made it wonderful that he could play at all, nobody had tho heart to inter fere with the consolation which "Fisher's Hornpipe" and "The Girl' I left behind uio" atl'ordod him at three o'clock in the morning, nobody, that is except "Marm Bony," whose room wa9 on the other side ot tho corridor, and who took Joe's per formances as a serenade, and gently insinuated to him that, as Napoleon was sun living, she might be compromised by such tributes to hor charms. Although sho was anxious not to accent nnv nrivl. leges on account of her wealth, Miranda uiougm, sue would occupy the spare chamber. The paupers were all disposed to keep holiday in 'Miranda's honor. Old (' nit'n Kiah had donned a collar so high that it sawed agonizingly upon his ears, little Dr. I'ingree, a peddler of roots and herbs, who was occasionally obliged to seek winter quarters nt the poor-house, wore a black satin vest brocaded With huge blue roses, which hud appeared ut his wedding forty years liefore, and "Marm Bonv" had adorned herself with a skimpy satin skirt and three peacock feathers standing up right in her little knob of back hair. And Jo Briscoe was tuning his violin, ovideutiy iu preparation for an unusual elFort. A vague idea that Miranda had arrived at great honor had penetrated poor "Marm Bony's" bewildered brain, and a fancy suddenly seized her that Miranda was the unscrupulous Marie Louise who had sup planted her as Mapolcou's wife, and she hobbled out of the room in grat agitation and wrath, her peacock-feathers waving wildly in the air. She returned In a few minutes, however, and whispered to Mi randa that, "as Napoleon 'wa'n't just what he'd ouyht to be anyway, mebbe they'd better make up." To which proposition Miranda assented gravely, holdiug the wrinkled, trembling old hand tenderly in hers. Cap'u Kiah felt it incumbent upon him t,o leud the conversation, being modestly conscious of his social gifts. ' Ho had beeu a ship owner, and very well-to-do, until iu his old ago he was robbed of all his property by a younger brother whom he had brought up aud cared for as a son. But the old man had brought to this low level of society to which he had sunk a cheerful philosophy aud a grim humor for which many a suc cessful man might well have given all his possessions. "Kich and poor, there's is a sight of hu man uater about us all, though there ain't no use deuyin' that some has more than others," remarked Cap'n 'Kiah, S 'nten tiously. "And w hether riches or poverty brings it out the strongest it's hard tell in.'" . "I've always thought I might never have found out that 1 had modicle tarlunt if I'd been rich," said Dr. Pingroe, medi tatively. The little man had "taken on doctorin' out of his own head," as ho ex pressed it, alter mining that shoemuking and tin-peddling did not satisfy his ambi tion, and was the inventor and sole pro prietor of an infallible medicine, known as me "universal 1'uiu-lJxteriuinutor." The jokers dubbed it "llealth-Kxteriuiiiator," but all Welby took it they must take something iu the spring and the little doctor, who had a soul far above thoue-hts of sordid gain, never expected to be paid for It, which made it very popular. It couldn't kill one, being made of simplest roots and herbs; and if one should be cured how very pleasuut it would be to think that it wus w ithout cost I "Sure enough, doctor, mebbe vou nover would," said tho Captain. "And 1 suppose the iiinereeut satisfaction you've got a-mukiu' them medicines is as great as you could 'a' got out of riches, and with out the worry ami care of riches, too." "Not to mem ion the good done to my fellow-creturs," said tho little doctor. "Jest us you suv. the good done to vour fellow-creturs not, beiu' worth mention- in', " said t'an'n 'Kiah. w ith a invii siiu- plieity that disarmed suspicion. "There ain't no rienyiu' tlntl poverty is strenglh 'uin' to the faculties.". "Don't give me nothlu' more strength nin' than riches iu mine." said Uncle i'e- ter Heuchoittii, who boasted great wisdom aud experience, based mysteriously on the possession of a wooden leg. "I've been iu this world up'nrds of seventy years, forty live of it a-wulkiu' ou a wooden leg, and I hain't never socu that poverty was any thing but a curse." 'You've got a terrible mistaken n'int of view, Peter, Wfll-iiiuaniu' as you be," said t'np'ii 'Kiah. "There's iiotlnn' iu uator, and, 1 was a-goin' to say, iu grace, but what y uu clap your eyes on fust onto the iMintr'y side, and thou you're sure iho.e ain't notliiu' but a conu'y side." . 1 Wish i could see soilietillliz lemides the conlr'y side or riches; but 1 hain't yet," said Miiuuda, wiih a heavy sigh. I.UI is ur. i lugi ee cast a sidelong look at her, and then adjusted his rravnt and con sidered the elTect of the blue nes on his vest. Was a vision flittlnz before his eyes Of the wagon drawn by gnvlv-rnpnrisniied steeds nnd bearing In gilt I'-IWs on a red f round the legend: "Dr. I'ingree's Pain :termiiintor, II urn ini i y 's Kriend," of bis ow n face, beautified by net, adorning fences and wnlls nlmr" this proud Inscrip tion: "the Renowned Inventor of the Universal I'aiii-KxUM-iiiinafor 1 " This lame, the dream of a bfe-time, might now be purchased by money. And ho had always admired Mirnuda. Mnan In caught his glance, and, with the suspicion which wealth had already engendered, divined his thought. Wns there going to be another aspirant for her hand? The wind's a blow ln' up; and whnt a marin' the sen does make!" she said, hur riedly, to cover her embarrassment. "The only thing I dont like about this house is it bein' so ni-arthn sen. It's rainln' hard; and I'm glad of It," she added, in nn un dertone, to Mrs. It-mis "for ho won't be so likely to get round hero to-night. (Join-tin' is real tryiu'," "The ocean is a dretful discouserlate noundin' cretur," remarked Uncle l'eter, lugubriously: "mid when you think of the drown. led folks she's got a-rollin' round in her, 'laint no wonder." "The ocean's a useful work o' nater, ami she's fetched and carried and aimed a livln' lor a good many niore'n she's stvallered up." sai l Cap'n 'Kiah. "I expect this world ain't a vale of tears, nohow," said Uncle Peter, in an aggrieved tone. "There is folks that knows more'n the bvmu book." "Well, it is. and then ag'in it ain't, jest accordin' to tho way you look at it. There's a sight more tho matter with folk's p'int o' view than there is wit h tho Lord's world. Now, .To, if you've got that cretur o' yourn Into ship-sliapo it always does seem to me jest like a human cretur Hint's got tho right .p'int o' view, thnt tiddle does jest give it to us lively." Jo tuned up, with modest satisfaction, end two or three couples stiod up to dance. Little Dr. I'ingree was about to solicit Miranda's hand the dance, when there cnin a knock nt the door. Miranda stuck her knitting-needle through her hnek-hnir in nn agitated and expectant manner. Hut it was not tho lank lljrure of the book-peddler, her be trothed, that darkened the door. It was a forlorn woman, dripping with rain, with two small boys clinging to her skirts. "I suppose poor folks have a right to come iu here out of the rain," sho said, ad vancing to the lire and seating herself with a sullen and dejected aspect. Little Dr. I'ingree, who felt the arrival to be very inopp irtnne. nevertheless gnllautly hastened to replenish the the. Tho poor inislress hospitably offered to remove the visitor's w et wrappings, but she shook her head. "I w ant to find the relntives of Kphruin Spencer," she said. "You'll have to go a good ways," said Cap'n 'Kiah. "Tho graveyard is chock full of 'em said Uncle l'eter. "They've kind of died out," explained Cap'n 'Kiah. "They seemed to bo the kind that dies out easy aud imternl." "His uncle Hiram isn't dead, is he?" asked tho woman, with the straiu of anxiety in her voice. "He died about a year ago." "What's become of his money?" asked the stranger sharply. "Well, there wa'n't much as folks thought," said Cap'n 'Kiah. "He frittered away a good deal ou new-fangled mor onities vnd such things that wa'n't of any accou c had a reg'lar mania for 'in for a year or so before he died; and then ho give some money to his housekeoner and the iium that worked for him, and what was left he givs to the town for a new town hall; but, along of quarrelin' about where 'twas to bo set, and what 'twas to bo built of, and gittin' local ndvice to set tle tho p'ints, I declare if 'tain't 'most squandoredl liut, In! if there wa'n't such quarrelin' amongst folks, what would be come of the lawyers? They'd all be here, a-settin' us by the ears, I expect." 'And there isn't a cent for his own neph ew's starving children?" said tho woman bitterly. "Epiirum's? O, la, no I Tho old man never set by Kphruin, vou know; them two was always contrV-miuded. You don't say, now, that you're Ephrum's wife?" Cap'n 'Kiah surveyed her with frank curiosity. "I'm Ephrum's widow." "You don't sav so' now! Well, there's wus ockerpations than bein' n, widow," re marked Cap'n 'Kiah, consolingly. Miranda had drawn the younger boy to her side. Sho was chafing his numb hands and smoothing tho dump locks from his forehead. "Why, how cold your hands have growu!" the child cried. "They're cold -r than mine, And how funny an 1 white yon look." Miranda had felt, from tho moment when she Hist saw the forlorn little group, that Ephraim was dead, and yet the sure knowledge came as a shock, But this child was lonki ug at her with Ephraiin's eyes: they warned her heart. "She know me, if none of tho rest of vou did," said the widow, indicating Mirainl i by a nod of h -r head. "And I knew her. too, just as s ion as I set eyes on her. Well, you need't hold any grudge against me, Miranda Dag;ett. I calculate you got the best of the bargain. Eohrum ha in't any faculty to get nloug. I've struggled and slaved till I'm all worn out; and now I haven't a roof to cover me nor my chil dren, nor a mouthful to cat. Mirauda sprung up,' hor arms around both the boys. "I have 1" I havo plenty for you all. Aud I've boon a-wondoriu' why it should havo come to me, that didn't need it; but now I know. You come right home with me. Mis' Bemis, you'll let Trendy harness up?" 3 There were some objections made on ac count of the rain, but Miranda overruled them nil. She drew Mrs. Beniis aside and coufi lo 1 to her that sho didn't want Ephrum's boys to stay even one night iu the poor-house, because "itmight stick to 'era afterwards." Aud she shouldn't really fool that they wore going to belong to her until sho had them in hor owu house. Ko, through the driving rain, iu the open wagon which was the most luxurious equipage thut the poor-fann boasted, Mi randa was driven homo with her proteges; wtiile Mrs. Beniis ge.ve way to runetvod anxiety about the lull tailorin', and Dr. I'ingree heaved a sigh over his vanished dreams a very geutie one, he was so used to seeing dreams vanish; and there was consolation iu having such au eveut to talk over. 4 Miranda's homo was a rambling old houBe, and it seemed deserted and ghostly when they entered it; but Mirauda kindled a lire iu the kitchen stove and another in the great tire-place in the sitting room, and the boys wurined and fed and com forted, grew hilarious, and the gliosis were nil dispersed, and it seemed to Mi randa lor the first time like home. When she had seen all three cosily tucked into their beds, she went down stairs to rake over the fire and see that all was safe for the night. She found herself too full of happy excitement to seek her own slumbers. Ephruim wns dead, but he had faded out of her lite long before; ho hail been nothing but a memory, nnd she had that st ill. He uveu seeuiod nearer to her, being iu the far country, than he had done before. And his children were under her roof; hers to fue i and clothe and care for in the happy duvs that wore coaling; hors to educate. What joy to have the means to do it with ! what greater joy to work and save and niauuge that there should Ii - enough ! Mirauda looked into the leaping flame of her tire and saw brightest pictures of the future until suddenly sho turned her head away aud covered her face w ith her hands, groauiug bitterly; it was only a blackened limb that, standing tall and straight iu the flame, took upou itself a grotesque resemblance to a one-armed inau. And Miranda remembered her af fianced, the book-axent. "U, laud I how could I 'a' forgot I I've give him my promise." To Miranda's Puritan miud a promise was to be kept, with tears and blood, if need were. "O, what a foolish woman I've been 1 If I bad only waited till I found out what the Lord did menu by sen din' that money to 1110I lie wouldn't stand the boys, anyhow ; he's nigh and grasiiiu'; I've found that out.

Yesterday I hnd thou ;hts of d iiu' that; but now there's the bov." The qn -er black stiek had fallen, and win ernniblin j atvav, but it hnd crushed the bisl Ibckering flame. Miranda's lire, like her hopes, tin 1 turned to ashes. She tvnlked the door restlessly, seeking vainlv for a pnt hw sv out of her trouble, 1 until she was exhausted. T lien she slept a troubled sleep until daylight. If was a In t le comfort to get breakfast for Ephraim' wife and Ihivs, although ,n w as so henvy -hcnrl ed. .she went neios the Ibd I to Kben Curtis' to get a bit of fresh ti-h ; l-'.li n hnd been fishing the ilav heli.ro.

"They most generally do get the news up at the 1 poor-house." Eli -n Ittled his hat. and ran j his lingers through his h-iir, wiih a ming- : ling of sympathy and pleasure in being the llrsl to impart iin;iorl ant u-vs. "He's cleared out, the I, nk-a;;e.it has - got all the money he could oui of folks tt it hi mi t giving 'em any Imok;: an I folks say he got some of you. He's beeu in jail for playing the same trick before; and folks think he'll be caught t his time." "U, it's a mistake! He'll come back," said Mlrinda, dejectedly, after a moment's thought. "Well, he isn't very likely to, because" here Kben turned his head aside in embar rassment "because he's got a -wife and family over to Olueyville." Hadi.-mt delight overspread Miranda's countenance. "I hope they'll just let him go," she snld. "He's welcome to what money he's got of mine more'n welcome." Ami homeward she went with n light step. "Women nre queer," mused Kben, as he returned to his tish-cle.-iuing. "She's lost her beau and her money, and she's tickled to death." "I declare, you look just as fresh and young, and happy ns you did fifteen years ago!" said the widow with n touch ol envy, as they sat down to the cheerful break'ast-table. Miranda touched Mrs. Rnmis's arm ns sho came out of the meeting-house the next Sunday, Kphraim's bovs, prcternn tiirally smooth of hair and shining of face, besid" her. "If it ain't porfane to say it, Mis' Bonn's, I feel as if I'd not through the eye of that needle clear into the Kingdom of Heaven." The poor-mistress commented upon the saying iu the midst of her numerous family that night. "She's got that selilsh teinpery woman saddled onto her for life, and she'll work her lingers to tho bone I'm them boys, that ain't anything to her, and won't be apt to amount to much, for there never was one of I hem Spencers that did, and sho calls that tho Kingdom ol Heaven!"

The Between the Two Conditions of Unconsciousness. Tlio relationship between .sleep, "tlit cousin of death," and death itself, if probably real us well as apparent. The distance wliieli separates them is pro.it, but there are ititenneiliati) connections, grades of dissolution as of development. Among these the similarstates of trance and hibernation ate worthy of special notice. For sleep and for trance, one cause, tho exhaustion chielly of the nervous matter, but mote or less ol every organ and tissue, is assignable. The hysterical stupor is the sleep of nci'vo ceulers woru out with tho assault and conllict of stormy rellox action. Healthy sleep is the rest of physical ele ments wearied with tho same straiu ap plied more gradually. Cases lia.e boon recorded in which soinnolenee, eotil iming for days with out cessation, has resembled trance in its duration, while presoiving all the ordinary features of natural sleep. Various facts support us in tissue ating tlie hibernation of animals with the same train of organic or fiinet'oual chances as the oilier iincon-c'oiis slates wh ch we have been considering. It comes like a habit; it has, ono" may say, annual return; its apparent cause is the oppression of external cold, and the animals it ail'ccls are mostly those wh ch, from their bodily stnii'ture or habits, are subject to great periodic, variations of temperature. Vital tissue is exhausted and futictam is in part suspended, probably because tlie numbness of cold has taken hold tipon the radicles of the outward circu lation, and of that of Hie brain surface which is conducted with it by numerous anaslonio'as. In such a case amomla would seem lo be the cause of the winter sleep, as there is evidence to show that it is a'.so tho cause of that temporary starvation of brain which lulls without arresting its action in the natural repose of each night. We may even regard tho lelliarg-y, ended by death, into which man falls when exposed to great cold, as a short and mortal hibernation. The same influence acts upon him as upon the bear or fish; but tho power of its shock is greater on his liner and less ac customed senses than on their com- , paratively coarse organization. So like-1 wise in other regions and forms of life, in the weariness, paralysis, atrophy and -gangrene of limbs, in the leafless hiber nalion of trees, and in their decay, be ginning in tlie terminal twigs, the same teaching is evident, that vascular nutrition, in its periodic variations, is tho parent of activity and of rest, as its absence is of death. It is not, there fore, altogether supris'ng to m-'ct with occas;onal instances iu which deatli is simulated by some deep degree of stupor. The case of George Childet , a laborer, living al ISridgewalcr. which was lately recorded in tho daily papers, appears to huve been 0110 of this kind. The trancelike state developed qu te sudden ly, aud was mistaken hy the relatives for death. Some slight degree of warmth in tlie apparent corpse induced ; the clergyman iu al tendance to refuse ' burial in spite of the decided wish of the rohit'Ves that it should take place. Afler eight days the s;gns of animation Wore re-established, and the subject of tli-8 singular experience slowly recov ered. Iu all such cases there is an clement of mystory; and one can not always dee do how much of this is due to physiolog'cal or pathological condi tions, or to some external agency. Wo lire not informed of the antecedents iu the pr-esctit instance, and can not say how much hard work, under feeding, anx iety or other causes may have had to do wiih tho result. The state described,) if really one of trance, a'lords a striking ! example of the d Itienlty which some times, though very rarely, arises iu 1 proving the linal point iu diagnosis,) and a warning that I lie most trivial signs of vitality should not bo over looked in determining the fact of death Urilii Mi'ilicul .o'triiai.

Supplemental Instructions to Postmaster. in Regard to Special Delivery Service. Rebate on Jute Sacks— Capital Notes. IMPORTANT DECISIONS. Wasiiinoton, October i!. In svtion 3 of an act of Congress approved March 9, 1?7S, It Is "provided, that when any poison has been granted n land wair.ml under any net of Congress for nnd on account of service in the war of isp;, such a grant shall bo prima facie evidence of his service nnd hon orable discharge so as to entitle Mm. If liv ing, to a pension under this nd; but such evidence shall not be conclusive, nnd limy be rebutted by evidence that such a land warrant was iniproctly granted. In the case of n widow of a soldier of the war of ISP.:, whose husband during his tlto time was grunted both a land warrant and a pension, Coniinissioiier Black has icceiitly decided that It would be a great hardship to require, after the lapse of so many years, new evidence to re-establish the fact, character nnd period of service which had ptevlously boon determined by competent authority, the prima facie case provided for by the statute hnviiig thus Ihvii supplemented anil sticnglh eiicd, and hence the widow's claim for pen sion should beallowed, and nonltenipt made to rebut the evidence upon which her bus baud's claim for bounty land and pension had been granted. In other cases, however, in which no pen sion had 1 n allowed (he soldier, and vhcre only the prima facie cases made by the la exist, the matter of pension never having been adjudicated, the Conuuissioner held that these were cases of Urst Impression, so far as claims for pensions are concerned', und ns it appears that the husbands of the claim ants were not in the service foi fourteen (lays during the war of isp;, nnd the pre pondciance of evidence ls-ing that they were not in any engagement in that war, the prima facie case created by the .statute Is overcome, nnd the applications for pen sions in those cases w ill be rejectcil. The question has been presented to the First Comptroller for his decision, whether the dillcroiico of commissions heretofore withheld from purchasers of private dio slumps under the rulings of his predeces sors shall now be refunded in acconlanco with the decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Swift Company vs. I'niled Slides, wheie the right to such riilTrcni occurred beyond the six years' limitation prescribed for Instituting suit in tlie Court of Claims. The dillcience in question arises in the mode of computing the mm missions in the one case the amount of cash deposited in payment for tho stamps and in the oilier case ou the amount of sliinips purchased, nnd amounting lo SU.UH, against the purchaser for every Sl.oufi of stamps purchased. The Comptroller decides that the decision Of the Supreme Court only applies in cases arising thereafter, and also In those ca-es where the right to the difference therctofori) ascribed w ithin the six years limitation, and that in these ca-es w here the six years havo expired, the rulings of his predecessors are binding upon him, and hence the court being unable to grant relief it can only lie had by the action of Congress upon the mat ter. The amount involved under this de cision is nbout Soi'iK.tmo, Third Assistant Postmaster General llazen lias issued supplemental instructions to post masters in regard to the special delivery service. These instructions nro the result of observation of the practical operation of the system and are intended to cover any defects in the original Instructions.
