Clkvkland, O., April 25. A strange case camo to light hero yostcrday. Daniol a young plumber living on St, Clair street, has been subjected to spells of prolonged Bleeping for throo years. Ono night ho went to bed and alopt for twenty hours without awakening. Two wcoks lator ho slept for thirty hours, and ono occasion felept for consecutive hours. Dr. , Caporer, who has been attending him, makes tho following statoment: "About a vear ago the young man slnrjt for sixty-five hours, or almosf" threo iiiiys and 'three nights. When I first saw him I thought ho would never awake. Ho was as cold as a corpse, his skin leaden colored, his pupils conti acted, and his pulse throbbing slow nnd heavy. It was impossible to aronso him nt first. I applied hot baths and leeches, and nfter he letuined to consciousness administered tincture of iron, phosphates and quinine. 1 never knew of a similar case, nor heard of one exactly like this. I called Dr. Dennett at my second siege with this young man, and he declared that nothing of the kind hnd ever come under his observation. This was about a month after his having tho sixty-five hours sleep. He then slept about sixty hours. Tho sleepiness is caused by p.issho congestion of tho binin, which is owing to extreme nervousness anil piootrntinu, brought about by debility. Miilcaliy is an estimable young man of good habits. Ho does not drink, and tho prininrj, cause of his Mekness is a mystery. Aside fiom his sleeping spells his health is goul." I'lsiiiurcU tioes ItneJt on the American lloyr. IlKiai.v, April 25.

The writer asseits that the rccont prohibition of American pork in Germany was mi economic, military measure, which tho German Government was compelled to take lor tho purpose of protecting its subjects from physical diseaso and degeneiation much worse than tho enforced introduction of opium entailed upon tho Chinese. The article also attacks United States Minister Sargeant, nt Derlin, for advising his Government to retnliato by discriminating against German products which could bo produced elsewhero until the German Got eminent should ho compelled to withdraw its prohibition of Ameilciu hog products and also for publishing such advico in a Kcw Ynk joiuml. Tlio i Gaetto Miys that tho reason American pork wns prohibited was because it was trichinous. .Minister Sargent in lcply told n piess correspondent that he hud written 'nothing home on tho subject, save to tho Stnto Department, which was mailed .January 1, and which contained nothing about retaliation. It did, however, contain extracts from tho German picss' nnd from behoved that tho exclusion of American pork was duo to the influence of German, pork dealers, who, in consequence of American competition, hud to sell nativo hog products much lower.
