The following strange story appeared, befor the deaih of Mr. Calhoun, mid wits always understood to be correct and true in every particular: . , The other morning at (lie breakfast ta ble, our friend Hon. John C Cliloun seemed very much troubled, and out of spirits. You know he is altogether a venerable man, with a hard, stem , Scotch-Irish face, softened in its expres sion around the mouth by a sort of sad mile, which wins the hearts of all who converse with him. His hair is snow white. He is tall, thin and angular. He reminds vou very much of Old Hickory. That he is honest, no one doubts; he has sacrificed to his fatalism his brightest hopes of political ad vaneement has off ered up on the shrine of that necessity which he worships all that can excite to ambition, evon the Presidency of the Uni ted States. . . But to my story. The other moruing at the breakfast-table, where I, an unob served spectator, happened to be present, Calhoun was observed to gaze frequently at hid right hand, and brushed it with his left in a hurried and nervous manner. lie did this so often thai it excited atten tion. At length one of the persons com posing the breakfast party his name I think is Toombs, and he is a member of Congress from Georga took upon him- iteii to inquire as to tne occasion ot Air. Calhoun's disquietude. "Does vour hand pain you? he asked of Mr. C. To this Mr. Calhoun replied, in rather a flurried manner. "Pshaw! It is nothing! Only a dream I had last night, which makes me see per petually a large black spot, like an ink blotch, on the back of my right hand. An ptlcal illusion, I suppose. Of course these words excited the curi osity of the company, but no one ven tured to beg the detail of this singular dream, until Mr. Toombs asked (vuietly: "What was your dream 11 ke7 1 m not very superstitious about dreams; but some times they have a threat deal of truth in them." "But this was such a Deculialrv absurd dream," said Mr. Calhoun, again brushing me oacic onus rignr. nana; nowever ii ii does not intrude toomuchonthe time of our friends I will relate it to you." Of course the company were profuse in their profession of anxiety to know all about the dream. In his singular, sweet voice, Mr. C. related it: "At slate hour last night, I was sit ting in my room engaged in writing; I was astonished at the enterance of a visitor, who entered and without a word took a seat opposite me at my table. ' This surprised me as I had given particular orders to the servant I should on no account be dis turbed. The manner in which the intru der entered, so perfectly self possessed, ta king his seat opposite me, without a word as though my room and all within it be longed to him, excited in me as much sur prise as indignation. As I raised my head to look into his features, over the top'of my (haded lamp, I discovered that lie was wrapped in a thin cloak, which effectually concealed hit face and features trom my view. As 1 raised my hand he spoke: - "What are you writing. Senator from South Carolina?" "1 did not think of his impertinence at first, but answered him voluntarily: . "I am writing a plan of the dissolution of the Union; (you know, gentlemen that I am expected to produce a plan of j; .- i . e ,..r aissoiuiion, in uro evui ui ucnuiu jii tingencies.) "To this tho intruder replied, in the cool est manner possible: , "beuator from couth Carolina, will you allow me to look at your hand your right Land?"-. :,-.- . ' "He'rose, the cloak i tell, and II beheld his face. Gentlemen the sight of ' that face struck mo like a thunder clap., t It was the-face of a dead man. whom' extraordi nary events had called back to life.! .The featured were those of. General George Washington. He was dressed in the Itev olutionary costaroe,1 such, as you see in the Patent Office' .' w .n....tv. ij Here- Mr; Calhoun paused, Apparently agitated.''' His agitation, I liedd. not, tell you, was shared by trie company.. Toombs at lenrih broke the embarratsimr pause: ? 1 'Well. we-e-llj-wha was the issue of this scene? r-u'i -r a -! "The intruder, as I have said, rose and I had no power to refuse; (extended it The truth is, I felt a strange thrill prevail me at his touch; he grasped it And held it near the light, thus affording me full time to examine every feature. It was the face of Washington, v Geiitldmen, I shuddered as I beheld the dead-alive look of thai visage. . i After holding my hand for a mo ment, he looked at me steadily, and said in a quiet way: r ,1 : - "And ; with this right hand, Senator from South Carolina, you would sign your name to a paper declaring the Union, dis solved?" . ... i "I answered in the affirmative: 'Yes, I will, if a certain contingency arises, sign my name to a Declaration of Dissolution." - "But at that moment a black blotuh ap peared on the back of my hand an inky blotch, which I seem to see, even now. What is that? snid I, alarmed, 1 knew not why, at the blotch on my hand.". . "That," said he, dropping my hand, "is the mark by which Benedict Arnold . is known in the next woild." "He said no more, gentleman, but. drew from beneath his cloak an object which he laid upon the table laid it upon the very heavy paper on which I was writing. That object was a skeleton." k "There," said he, "there are the bones of Isaac Hayne, who was hung at Charles ton by the British He gave his life in order to establish the Union. When you fmtyour name to a Declaration of Disso ution, why you may as well have the bones of Isaac Hayne before you; he was a South Carolinian and so are you. But there was no blotch on his right hand." "With these words, the intruder left the room. I started back from the contrsat with the dead man's bones and awoke. Overworn by labor, 1 had fallen axleop, and had been dreaming. Was it not a singular dreom?'"; ' - '-''- All the company answered in the affirm ative, and Toombs muttered, "Singular, very singular," at the same time looking curiously at the back of his right hand, while Mr. Calhoun placed his head be tween his hands and seemed buried iu thought. The .IIIimI and the Nerves. The mind in the brain employs nervous system as so many the instruments of communication with the outer world. The eye is necessary to sight, but it does not see, for if the nerve which forms a communication between it and the brain is divided, the vision will be destroyed; and so with all the other organs of sense; Some have believed that the heart is the seat of mind, and it is quiet common to consider it the source of the affections. It is perfectly easy, however, to trace all the passions and mental phenomena to their great lodging place, the brain. Vis ion has been destroyed in some persons, and yet by pressure on the optic nerve they have been haunted by illusions, be lieving that they saw objects which did not exist. After a person's leg or arm is amputated he feels for a long time after ward, as if his fingers or toes still belong to him. The spinal cord genomics nervous en ergy for muscular actions, influences the recreations, regulates the emotion of the heart, and maintains the actions of the different organs in harmony to perform their several functions, but it has no re lation whatever to the faculties of precep tion and thought. It is composed of the same material as the brain, but its fiber and viscicles area constant repetition of the same structure, while in the brain there is an endless variety in their sr. arrangements; this is the renson why the brain is cosidered to be a congerie of or gans. A large extra vasasion of blood within the head, by tne pressure winch it causes on the brain, produces total in sensibility to external impressions, and suspends volit ion. I lie enect ot a simu lar injury to the spinal cord is very dif ferent. The oarts below the iuiurv are deprived of their sensibility, at the same time those parts of the - body which are above the injury maintain their sensibility and power of motion unimpaired.' . A per son who has received s mortal injury of the spinal cord in the neck may live for five or six days; nothing living but tne head. Scientific American, . -.

It appears by the way. that Mr. Fry's second wife was a "widow;" that her husband went to California some years ago, and soon alter his arrival there, it was rumored that he was murdered. A few weeks since a letter was received from him by her, we have been informed, in which he states that he will return in the next steamer, &c.

In the annual report of the Massachusetts Board of Education, Secretary Boutwell gives the following account of a self governing school: In Chillicothe there is a high school without a master. It contains about fiev? enty pupils of both sexes, whose ages aver age between fifteen and sixteen vears. fbey assemble together in a hall, where the studies assigned by the teacher are pursued. The recitations take place in adjoining rooms. Two recitations daily are conducted by superintendent of public schools in that city; the others by teach ers appointed for that purpose. . I entered the Bchool-room unobserved, and though there was no teacher present, there was no appearance of disorder or neglect of stndy. the school Jias been managed upon this plan for two years with entire satisfaction to the teachers and, to the public. I had no opportunity to become acquainted with the intellectual character of the pupils; but a school in which the power of self con trol is so early and so thoroughly' devel oped, 'cannot be unworthy of public no tice.". 1 ."'.! m.i . 1 a. t -d ' , A Letter' from a Father to his Sod at Collioe.

"Standard" has the particulars of a matiimoniaj affair that occurred near Janesville la9t week, which very much resembles the celebrated Broker and Dean marriage in New York. Here is the "Standard's" story: ... "A young lady, hiiihly accomplished.. of superior education and beautiful withal. the daughter of a director of the bullolk bank of Boston, had been spending a few mouths with some of her friends at Em erald Grove. In the employ of the gen tleman with whom she was 'sojourning, was a native of the Emerald Islea man, for aught we know, of good reputation, but possessing none of the refinements of the coachman of the Bokcr family, of New York city. . "The acquaintance between the man and the Boston belle soon ripened into intima cy, an elopement was the consequence.
