J. W. & R. E. TALBOT. Paevarat BuRIAL.-z The Albany
Regisatr in the course of an article on
this subject, relates the following:
Some years ago we were perfectly
cognizant of an occurrence of this kind,
which was of the most heart-rending
character. The wife of a gentleman
was taking suddenly ill in church, and
was carried to her home in a state of
syncope. In a few hours she partially
recovered, but immediately relapsed,
and never again showed any signs of
consciousness. She lay in this condition
nearly two days, baffling the skill of
the physicians, and then, as it was
thought and there was almost every
reason to believe, died. No sign- of
breathing could be detected, the limbs
became rigid and cold, and the eyes
remained open with the fixed and
glassy stare of death-but there was
no change in the color of the skin.
This was the only reason in the world
for supposing that dissolution had not
The poor bereaved husband, almost
frantic at the loss of the young and
beautiful wife whom he almost idolized,
clung with desperation to the hope
limned in her face, and long resisted
the unanimous decision of the physi
cians that she was certainly dead.
They told him, which is doubtless true,
that it sometimes, though very rarely,
happens that there is no discoloration
for days and even weeks after dissolu
tion has taken place. But still he re
sisted, and it was not until three days
had passed without the faintest signal
of change or sign of life, that he finally
gave up and suffered the burial to take
place. She was entombed in a vault.
Motlths passed. A cemetery having
been laid out, the husband purchased
and beautified a lot, erected an elegant
monument on it, and when all was
ready, superintended the removal of the
body of his wife from the vault to its
final resting place.
When the vault was opened, he re
membered the circumstances of her
death, above detailed, and a desire
suddenly seized him to once more be
hold the corpse. By his direction the
coffin lid was removed. The spectacle
which presented itself was inconceiv
ably horrible, for it showed that she
had been buried alive. She had turned
quite over upon her side-she had
clutched her nails into the coffin until
her fingers had bled-portions of her
grave-clothes were torn. and in her
horrible struggles she had contrived to
carry her hand to her head and had
plucked from it a mass of hair, with
portions of the cap that covered it.
The poor man never recovered from
the shock of that awful spectacle. He
was borne away senseless, and for the
rest of his weary life was an utterly
broken and miserable being.
A REALL VETERAN.-The Burlington
(N. J.) Gazette relates the following of
a veteran in that city:
The attention of nmany of our citizens
has doubtless been arrested by the ap
pearance of an old colored man. who
might be seen sitting in front of his
residence, in East Union street, upon
mnild clear days. respectfully raising
his hat to those who might be passing
by. His attenuated frame, his silvered
head, his feeble movements, combine
to prove that he is very aged ; arind yet
comparatively few are aware that he
is among the survivors of the gallant
army who fought for the liberties of our
country "in the days which tried men's

replied with trembling lips. "' I am very
old-I'm a hundred years old to day !"
His name is Oliver Cromwell. and he
says that he was born at the Black
Horse, (now Columbus) in this county,
in the family of John Hutchin. He
ealisted in a company commanded by
Capt. Lowery. attached to the 2d New
Jersey Regiment. under the command
of Col. srael Shreve. He was at the
battles of Trenton, Pjinceton, Brandy
wine, Monmouth and Yorktown, at
which latter place he told us he saw
the 14. man killed. Although his
faculties are failing, yet he relates
many interesting reminiscences of the
Revolution. He was with the army at
the neglect of the Deleware on the
memorable crossing of the25th Decem
ber, 1776, and relates the story of the
battles on the succeeding days with
enthlsiasm. He gives the details of
the march from Trenton to Princeton,
and told us, with much' humor, that
they "knocked the British about lively"
at ;t late lace. He was also at the
battle of f ogfield, and says he saw
the house banhing in which Mrs. Cald
well was shot, at Connecticut Farm.

A DREAnr REALIzED.-Some time
t during the past summer a stranger
a stopped at one of the watering places
- on the mountains south of Waynes
boro, Pa. After his arrival there he
1 was taken sick, and for several days
f was apparently deranged. On his re
covery he informed the proprietor of
the house that during his illness he had
dreamed for three nights in succession
s that he had discovered, at a certain
r distance in the mountain, under a rock.
- an earthen crock, containing a large
amount of silver. At this the worthy
s host expressed surprise, and spoke of it
I as a mysterious dream.
S Afterwards, however, they were walk
r ing together in that direction, when the
dream was again adverted to by the
V stranger, and the proprietor at bncee
- proposed an examination to satisfy their
curiosity. The rock was soon found,
9 and after carefully brushing away the
leaves, it was removed, and, to their
otter astonishment, there sat a crock
full of silver. They took it out, and
a conveyed it to the house, and on ex
I amination it was found to contain $400,
all in half dollars, which was divided
equally between them.
The day after this discovery, the
I stranger was about to take leave of the
mountain, and complained to his friend,
the proprietor of the springs, of the in
convenience of carrying the silver,
when an exchange was proposed and
effected, the stranger receiving bank

paying Wilmington a visit, got under

just aft the wheel, and placing his feet
on the spoondyle of the boat. (a large
beam near the water line. designed to
keep the craft upright and steady) he
clasped a brace that stood conveniently
near, and came over safely. The Her
ald says :
When discovered, he was endeavo,r
ing to reach the shore at the depot. and
looked bright, although decidedly in a
moist condition. His escape from death
was almost miraculous, for, from his
position, he must have experienced a
succession of immersions in the briny
wave. The distance from Charleston to
this town is about 170 miles; the night
was dark, although not tempestuous.
He said when the boat got out to sea he
was terribly frightened, and screamed
lustily, but nobody came to his assist
ance, and he succeeded by clinging to
the brace as high up as he could, in
keeping his head out of water. On
being asked whether he slept during
the night, he replied that he didn't
have time. Having obtained out a
partial glimpse of our town, and not
being particularly struck with its ap
pearance, he offered no resistance when
Col. Miller. the steamer's agent. placed
him on board the return boat for
Charleston. His was a flying visit, anid
a bold venture; and if the incidents
detailed by him, with every appearance
of sincerity and truth, are not fabrica

and good fortune not often chronicled.

G. W. & J. I. LANEY,
DEN TIS TS,
Respectfully tender their profes
sional services to the citizens of
Franklin and its surrounding coun
try. They will insert Teeth on plate, from one
to an entire set, either with or without artificial
gums, as the case may require; and being well
aware of the prejudices existing in regard to this
delic,,te but betjuifid operation, as well as all
others, all they ask to render perfect satisfaction
is a Itir trial.
They intend their prices shall be so reasonable
as to throw within the reach of all the facilities
of having the necessary operations performed on
those organs, so essential to comfort and beauty,
and veni heahh itself.
Having perminently opened ffies at Alex
a noria a:d O)pelousas, where they have been so
liobeally patronized, with thorough facilities for
operating, they feel fully justified in ensuring
permanent and useful work, whether done there
or at any intermediate place they may visit.
C Persons wishing their services will please
make application at their office, at the Franklin
Hotel. Those preferring it will be waited upon
at their residences. They will remain but a sho t
time, unless detained by business.
N. B.--For the gratification of those suffering
with aclhing teeth they would say that they use a
preparation which effectually destroys the nerve
without pain. By the use of chloroform they can
extract teeth without the least pain.

Chalin Pups, Wheels and Fixtures.
ION account of the remarkable simplicity of
Sconstruction, these Pumps are very easily
put up and kept running, not being liable to get
out of order or to be deranged. They require
less power to operate than any other Pump that
raises the same quantity of water. 'T'hey can
he put into wells of any depth, and a child can
work them with perfect ease and safety.
N. B.-No other Pumps produce so good an
effect on the quality of the water, for they agitate
it from the top to the bottom. They are also
much in use, and highly approved of. for raising
caae juice in the manufacture of sugar. Persons
wishing to avail themselves of the advantages
afforded by these Pumps, can learn every par
tienlar on application to the undersigned, who
may be found at the store lately occupied by Mr.
James S. Simmons. ED.WD. BENSON.
