Rxtranrtliitiiry Rtortca of an Indian Fakir.
The monotony of our camp life, was broken
this morning by the arrivnl of a very celebrated
character in the Punjnub, a person we had all
expressed great anxiety to see, and whom the
Mahn-Rnjah had ordered over from Uiiirutscr
on purpose. lie is a Fakir by name, and is
held in extraordinary respect by the Sikhs, from
his alleged enpneity of being able to bury him
sclfalive tor any period of time. So many sto
ries w ere current on the subject, and so many
respectable individuals maintained the truth of
these Ftories, that we felt curious to see him.
He professes to have been following this trade,
il so it may be called, for some years, and a con
siderable time ago several extracts from the
letter, of individuals wl.o had seen the man in
the upper Provinces, appeared in the Calcutta
papers, which were nt the time, naturally e
notigh, looked upon ns a mere attempt at
a hoax upon the inhabitants of Calcutta. Cap
tain Wade, political agent nt Lttdhiann, told
me that he was present at his resurrection after
nn interment of some months; (icncral Ventu
ra having buried him in the presence of the
Maha-Rajah and many of his principal sirdars;
and, as far ns I can recollect, these were the
particulars witnessed by (leneral Ventura :
After going through a regular course of prepa
ration, which occupied him seven days, and the
details of which arc too disgusting to dilate upon,
the Fakir reported himself ready for interment
in a vault by order ol the Mnha-Rajah. On the
appearance id Runjoet and hiseourt he proceed
ed to their final preparations that were neces
sary in their presence, nnd after stopping with
wax his cars and nostrils, he was stripped and
placed in a linen bag ; nnd the hist preparation
concluded by turning his tongue forwards, and
thus closing the gullet, he immediately died a-
way in a kind of lethargy. The bag was then
closed, and sealed w ith Runp el's seal. The
box was then placed in a vault, the earth thrown
in and trod down, nnd n crop of barley sown
over the snot, nnd sentries n need round it.
The Malm-Rajah was, however, very sceptical
on the subject, nnd tw ice in the course of ten
months he remained, under ground, sent people
to dig him up, when he was found to be in ex
actly the some position, nnd in a state ol perfect
ly suspended animation. At the termination of
the ten months, Captain Wade accompanied the
Mnhn-Rajah to fco him disinterred, and stales
that he examined him personally nnd minutely,
and was convinced that all animation was per-
lectly suspended. He saw the locks opened j dergo the cntilinc meiit in n place wheic hisae
nnd the scbIs broken by the Mnha-Rnj-ih, nnd thins iiiav be observed, it is needless to form
the box brought into the open air. The man
was then taken out, mid on feeling his wrist
and heart, not the slightest pulsation was per
ceptible. The first thingtowards restoring him
to life, was the forcing his tongue back to its
proper position, which was done with some lit
tle difficulty by n. person inseriing his finder
nnd fo: ciblv pul!;n it back, and conlinuinoto
hold it until it gradully resumed its natural
place. Captain Wade described the ti p of bin , Peking ! Is it to sit nt n shnt'ered table in
head to have, been considerably heated; but PTret, wiili a omise qutil behind the ear,
all other parts of the body cool and healthy in "d a fore !ioei between the eve-brow s, sup
appearance. Pouringa quantity of warm water 1 l""'" an editors nching head over a blank
upon him constitutes tiic only further measures ' 'l"'rc of pnper ! All these euiployn euts may

done, the man breathed strongly through it. The
mouth wns now opened, and the tongue, which
had been closely applied to the roof of the
month, nnd both it nnd the lips anointed w ith
ghcc(carified hitters.) Durng this part of the
proceeding, I could not feel any pulsation nt
the wrist, though the tcmpernture of the hinly
wns much above tlio natural standard of health.
The legs and arms being extended, and the eye
lids raised, the lormer were well rubbed, and a
little ghee was applied to the latter ; the eye
balls presented a dim sufltised appearance, like
those of a corpse. The man now evinced signs
of returning animation ; the pulse became per
ceptible at the wrist, while the unnatural tem
perature ofthe body rapidly diminished. He
made several inellectual efWtsi to speak, nnd nt
length uttered n few word, but in a tone so low
and feeble ns to render them inaudible. Fy ami
by his speech was re-established, and he recog
nised Fomcof tho bystanders, ami addressed the
Maha-Kaja, who wns seated opposite to him
watching nil his movements. When the Fakir
wns nblo to converse, the completion of the fact
was announced by the discharge of guns nnd
other demonstrations of joy. "A rich chain of
gold wns placed round his neck by Runjeet, nnd
ear-ring1, baubles, nnd shiwls were presi nied
to him. However extraordinary this fact mny
appear, both to the I'oroneans and natives, it is
difficult if not impossible, to explain it on phy
siological principles. The man not only deni
ed hia having tasted hmd or drink, but even
maintained that he had stopped the function of
respiration during a period of forty days and
nights. To all appearance this long fasting had
not been productive of its usual t-fti-ets, us the
man seemed to be in rude health, so that dies
tion and assimilation hml apparently proceeded
in the usual manner ; but this he likewise de
nted, and piously asseited, that during the whole
time he had enjoyed a most delightful trance
It is well k'iown that the natives of llindostan,
hy constant practice, ran bring themselves to
exist on the smallest portion of food for several
days; and it is equally true that, by long train
ing, the same people nre nble to retain the air
in th?ir lungs for some rnin.ites ; hut how the
functions of digestion nnd respiration could be
nrresled for such n length of time, appears uu
nccountable. The coneenltnent of the Fakir
during the performance of his feat, so far from
rendering the latter more wonderful, serves but
to hide the means he employs for its accom
plishment, niul until he can be pursiiaded to tin-
any conjectures repardinu them. i'nptain Ox

there are three things 1 very much wonder
The first is that cltiidreu n'muld be so foolioli
as to throw up stones, and brick-bats and cluiv
into fruit trees, to kno'jk down the fruit if they
would let it alone, it would full itself. The se
cond is that men should be so tooiish and even
so wicked as to go to war and kill one another -if
they would lei one another be, they would di i
of themselves. And the last thing that 1 win -der
nt most of all is that young men going al'u (
the Vollilg women if they would st;;y at hoii.J
the young women would cume after them.
