A STARTLING TRANSFORMATION.
Taken in all its -aspects and/phases, a
greater, and sharper, transformation : from
national /joy*to^national ' grfef v , tlian that
•which has just been experienced by the
British public is not recorded in history.
Oilier nations, by reason of .. some
; catastrophy or. calamity of one sort or
another, niave been suddenly plunged into
sorrow ;When all seemed bright and fair
jmd '-, prbjnising. Sovereigns have been
jssasslnaied in the heyday' of their
popularity- and usefulness, and on more
ihan ona occasion the crime has been
iommitteft while some fete or festival
was- in ifrosress'^Twice-Sinc^the close
of "the civil war" "a chicf ■ magistrate of
this 1 country/ has b'een'the' victim of the
murderous j hand "of the fanatic,' and the
r'-w-hole: people have been bowed in afflic
tion. ' \ . ' "■•/■■. /•/ ■■ * ! ' / " - '
But where -is there a parallel for the
case of Great Britain? When
was therfe so startling a. descent to the,
; depth of) national mourning from such
a -height |of exhilaration .and. joyous ex
pectation!? But forty-eight "hours agone
all was 'splendor/ glitter,'* ifgiifchearted
ness,"enthusiastic.- anticipation,, and. prep
aration --for dazzling, pageantry^ From
/British possessions 'pretty "much the earth
■liver had gathered subjects of the, crown
/to/ participate in the coronation of their
new sovereign, offer him homage and
Hlodgc to' him loyalty. These represented
yearly all races and all languages under
■■■ the sun, and almost every, known pic
turesque variety of costume. Foreign
courts and capitals had::sent ss c princ«js or
or ministers //to^attend the
impressive ceremonial ; and. testify — the
friendship of their respective" govern-
Iments, and throughout the "Tight Little
Isle" was a sound or revelry that was
beinff echoed in all the -British depend
encies. And as if every thing, had con
'irplred' to make the people's happiness
complete, virtually on the eve of the" date
appointed for the coronation, : the war
that had been costing; tlie^ empire, so
xnuch blood arid treasure, and^liadj. proved
/«ucn a menace to British prestige^ was
/brought to a close. Tho nation could

WASIIINGTON>S TEETH.
In the current issue of v the Stomatalo 1
gist, published in the interest of the Phil
adelphia Dental College, Is a half tone en
graving of a letter from . George /Wash
ington to his dentist, . - John Greenwood.
The original document, which is fairly
well preserved, is in the possession of
the coiiege authorities. The full text is
as follows:. / > •
Philadelphia, February 16, 179 L
Sir,— Your letter of the Cthvand the/box
which accompanied it/pame safe to hand.
The contents of ; the latter/were ; perfectly
agreeable to me, & will; I am persuaded,
answer, the end proposed very well. :
Enclosed I send you .Twenty dollars in
pajTnent for them and the repairs of the
old ones— and am? Sir,- 7 ,
Yr. Very'Hmble. Sevt., ;
: :c: c G., WASHINGTON, f-
P. S. That 1 1 may be certain that this
letter and its contents has got safe to
hand, be so good as to say so An a lirie to
G./ W,,,
It is on record that John Greenwood
made several sets of teeth/ for Washing
ton, the material -used being the ivory
of elephants and hlppotarriuses.
Greenwood's workmanship- was as good
as could be done in this country— s£ good
as could be, done by/ anyDOdjv. anywhere,
perhaps— yet it was clumsy- and heavy.
Indeed Washington's '< facial".; expression
was so changed after he began wearing,
artificial : teeth { that - tnat/ f act . became . a
subject of comment.^ . ; " -,;•.- . ' „
It is said it/is possible /to -distinguish
the portraits of him"; painted before he be :
gan wearing those teeth from, those paint
ed afterward: -However that may be," it
is certain '/Washington ./ was Tone /of the
American pioneers in the wearing pf- false
teeth and that the SQt}ov> sets-^for he
had several— caused him much discomfort,
but with .his customary; determination; he
persisted In their use. y ■ , i v • %r% r . ' '
It strikes us ; that the dentists and the
manufacturers "of dental goods, as well as
the general public, are much indebted to
the Father. of His Country for what he did
In' testing the utility of artificial teeth.
While not the "first", in . this { matter,; he
was one of the most influential ; of th"c
early patrons of a profession which; has
grown into great dignity, importance, and
usefulness. . - -
THE KIXG>S AILMENT, i *
The New York Herald, having. had the
best advice, " we have no doubt, publishes
the following editorially:
There being no, authentic statements to
I the contrary, it appears evident that the
! ailment of his Majesty -was an appendici-'
I tis which resulted in the formation of a
circumscribed 'abscess In the usual local
ity. This is a variety or abdominal.inflani
mation which vis 'very common in this
country, and when promptly treated lis
seldom fatal. - Under ordinary circum
stances the condition ; becomes ; one of a
simple abscess requiring, evacuation, for
so long as the circumvallatiori: remains
Intact the prpcess is as much a local one
in the abdomen as in any other part of the
body. ■■- •«■ " : .1" * ■ -
In the, peritoneal cavity the only special
danger is the accidental breaking down "of
any portion of the ', barrier and', the conse
quent escape of; the septic, matter into
neighboring regions. Happily such an ac
cident is hardly possible with, the skilled
tr eatmen t guaranteed by the eminent sur
geons in attendance on the case.
Thus, barring some of the complica
tions indicated, of which, however, there
"are ; no :■ distinct signs at present, we may
reasonably hope . that a precious life may
yet: be saved, and in good; time .thajt the
universal prayer, ."GoC save the liing,"
may/ be heard and answered. ; .-.

■ (The /Lancet.) - ■ '
l -An^interesting and ;minute account-, of
the action of in delirium is given
byV a~doctor. in the - Lancet. : \ The patient
.was a woman 70. years | of age,/ r suffering
from- broncho-pneumonia/ ,. : '■'}>" /; . '
' , "The chief point of 'interest in" this case
lies in the delirium. From- the night of
Marchk7th .until ;the. evening" ;of . the. 13th
(when the ; temperatqre ; fell ; suddenly) she
was; sometimes /wandering "while, awake,
and continually talking: in >her; sleep, "but
when spoken, to /would be perfectly sensl-.
ble,: and' so, long as she was engaged with
one • of ■ the • attendants « or ;doctor/, would
answer questions, ; etc. - When: the temper
ature fell on: the' l3th, she became iquite
delirious and remained so until the 16th,
when - she gradually returned to reason.'
On the night 'of the 13 th. and on- thel4th
she i was found 'to/be -speaking in :a ! lan
guage : unknown . to/those about her. ;. It
sounded' as .; if she was repeating some
poetry sometimes, or carrying on a . con
versation at others. She repeated the same
poem .time after time; This language was
found to be Hindustani: / On, the 14th; In
the evening,; the Hindustani- began to :be.
mixediwith English, and' she spoke to,"
and of,' friends andrelationsiofp.hjer^.girl-.
hood! On,thelsth the Hindustani.hjid"dis
appeared altogether, and she was talking
to, -and -of, friends of i ti later date in
English, -French, and - German.
\ l The patient- was born. in>lndia, , which.
r couritry she left at the age of 3 years and
landed; in England, after a five months'
voyage,- before she was i'■ years' 'oldi' Up
to the time she landed she. had 'beefl^nder
the care of Indian ;ser%'ants. : and 1 , spoke no.
.English "■ at .- all, •■ her/ ; only-.- language"; being.
Hindustani. On. her coming to England
the ayah was sent' back, and she then be
gan to learn English, and ; from that- time
nad never /spoken Hindustani. She ap
parently,on the 13th, went back in her;
delirium to her very earliest {days, when
she spoke again the first language she
ever heard. . The poem, was {found to be
something which the 'ayahs are in the
habit" of repeating to their 'children, ? and
the ; conversations were apparently \ wi th
.the •native servants, one being ?.-recog T
nlzed as a request that she might be taken
to the bazaar to'buy sweets.i A lady who
has lived much of.:her : life in" India, and
who speaks the. language; translated some
of the:: conversations .'which'; the- patient
carried;on- with her. imaginary visitors.- :
"Through" the ; whole<Jelirium there could
be recognized.a sequency.- As 'time went,
on the friends she spoke. of were?of : later,
date, arid she; took events in'^their proper
order/She apparently/ began ; at the be
ginning of "her life, -and went; through
it until on March 16th -she had reached
the time when- she was married had her.
children,growing. ; up,;boy; and. girl. It, is;
curious that, after /a; lapse of sixty-six
years, during which; time;she : -had' not
spoken' Hindustani, this language of * her
early' childhood should 'be'.recalled in de
lirium.- The patient now speaks English,'
French, and German (one as fluently as
the other), but although she knows ; a- few
Hindustani' words, she' is quite; unable to
speak the 'language "or; put one sentence;
together.' She says that she has no recol
lection (nor had she any before her ill-,
'ness) >of fever, having been able to ; speak
Hindustani.;/ / •/"/'•.. / :

had been . announced "that .the royal -party
would (probably, arrive ;about 5 o'clock"in

gave : everybody- who chanced "rto/?" r to/? avail]
ithemselves of it an opportunity for going 1
out./ By 4 o'clock a large crowd' had ais
sembled! on Broad ■ street In ithe neighbor- .
hood; of . the Fredericksburg depot in the
expectation : of -obtaining;, a .view of the.
distinguished stranger and his suite. In

nient,;however. -not'generally known, the
Committee of ; Reception and; some hun
dred citizens repaired to the Central Fair
Grounds, ;,;while . multitudes In the "city
vainly awaited the arrival of the special,

other carriages were on the Fair Grounds,
near .the.: northern entrance," but the spec r

"A"; fewf moments after 6 ;. o'clock the
whistle/of the locomotive was heard In

come" ' was a " ; signal/for a sensation," upon
which - everybody crowded 'up to get ; an
eligible "position. The train - stopped; in

of ; Richmond: and some members; of the~
