played by old liuiibury s caricature of a
rheumatic man enabled to jump over a Injn

(live you one iii.-tai.ee of a complete, thou;!!
temporary cure, performed upon a youu
lady by what I tan only cou-idi-r mental
a.o i.cy. One of the dau.'bters of a Roman
athoiic latmlv, tiained ,a very
beautiful aud liitere-tinj tin, liau entirely
lo-t the u-e of her limbs for nearly three
year,, ami was obliged to be fed and tended
like a child. Her mind was acute ami clear,
howc-v. v. and as at that time the ce'ehrated
I'riiiee Hohenlou was performing by bis
I. ravers, some cures which seemed iniracu-
, her father entered into corre-ponil. nee
with him. to see if any tbini' could be done
for the daughter. 'Ihe di.-tancc of some
thou-and miles lay between the l'rince and
the patient ; but he undertook to pray and
.'ay ina-s for her on a certain day and at a
cci lain hour ami directed that mass should
also be celebrated ill the city where she re
sided, exactly at the same moment. As the
lon.'itude of the two places w as very differ
ent, a irrcat deal of fuss was made to as
certain the preci-e time. All this excited
her imagination a iro'jd deal, and ut the hour
appointed the whole family went to mats,
leavinir her alone, nnd in bed. On their
return thev found Mi,s Y
, who for
years bad not been able to stir hand or foot,
up, dressed, and in the drawing room. For
the time she was perfectly cured ; but I have
been told that she gradually fell hack into
the same stale as before.
Mental medicines does not alway suc
cced, however; and once in my own ca-o,
failed entirely. When travelling in Europe,
in the year l"'J, I was attacked with very
sever.- 'juartaii fever. I was drujrjrcd im-ni'ii-ely
between the riaroty,ui, and the

far as without my knowing it, to put forward
a strikin-j clock that was on the mantle piece,
an I when the hour struck, at which tin: fit
usually sei.ed me, without any appearance
of its return, they congratulated me on my
iccovery, and actually left me. Nevcrthe
less, at the real hour, the fever pcizcd me
fi raiii. niitl shook me nearly to nieces.-

Nor is this the only ei-c in which I have

P!Ult, this: A nour woman oi J..-ith had
married a sainr, to w noiu sue s,
fondly attached. They had one or two
children, and were iu by no means jjood lir
cuinstnnccs. The man went to ca, iu pur
suit of hi usual avocation, arid at the end
of two or three months intetli o nce was re
Ccived iu L it U of the lo-s of the ve-..-c with
a OI1 Loard. ltlt in penury, with no
ii,i-flrn of sutitiortuu her children nut her
own hard In I or, the poor woman, who wa.
very attr.ic.tive in appearatn-o. was pe.sua'l.-u
to marry a man coii-iderably o!''1 r than le r
self. but ill very tolerable eireuiust iiiccs.
Ry him she bad one child; and in the sum
mer of the vear l7-fl. she was sittin on tin-
broad, orn-n wav. cn ed l,en!,
I. vv a! k . with a
baby on her lap. Suddenly, she beheld ln-r
f,r,t. husband walk up the strctt directly
tow aril her. The man reco-iii'nted her in-
stantlv. m iiroat bed. and p-ike to her. Rut
she iieilht r niiswcrcil nor mov. u. .-ne was
struck wilh entalep-y. In this state -lie was
removed to the Royal infirmary, and her
ca.-e, from the singular t -ircum-tancc s at

medical profession iu Eilinbur.'. which at
that time numbered anion,: it profers the
eelel.rated Culh ii, and no b-.,s cel. l r it -I

one of th.-ir pupil", who was pre-ci.t, and
who assured Ine that every thiiin' was done
that scii'iii'C could su'-'.-.t, tiil all the or
dinary remedial mcaiis were rxbau-t.-d.
The poor woman remained without speech
or motion. In whatevi r position the holy
was placed, there it remained ; and the
ri -il ir v of the muscles was sin h that when
tie arm WH, extended, twenty minutes
elnp,ed before it fell to her side by its own
weight. Death was inevitable, unless some
means could be devised of roii-iuj the mind
to "Oiue active operation on the body.
From various indication-, it was judged
that the poor woman was perfectly sensible,
and at a consultation of all the fir-t phy-i-elans
of the city, the fir-t hud. and wa. -cut
