THE HOUSE,
comfortable, though bnrlt man olden style,
in situated near the railroad and near the
centre of a circle ot cypres-? pond, pnr
rojindirig Iandn of a low, damp nature,
and covered with saw palmetto. The train
left 'and e proceeded to th Iioiihc, whert
we found several young men around n
bright fire. We soon enlivened the scene
with jokes, phoit stories, &e., and in thh
way passed off theremaindt-r of the night,
and the next day proceeded to converse
with different nu mbers of the family, wit
nesses of the late exciting Scenes.
MR. A. P SCKUENCT,
! tiie owner of the ptace, was the first whom
we approached ; hut as he wa in this city
at the coniruencetnent of the affair, he
only told us a portion of what was done.
and. which was told hy members of his
family who witnessed the'whole proceed
ing. On his return he was made" acquaint
ed with what was goiug on, and skui af
ter witnessed se-eral mysteries hituselt.
",m, ns thejr will come in
j under the testimony of the others.
THE MOST SINGULAR THING
told es$by Mr. Surrency was the affair of
j the clock, already mentioned in the Ma
: con Enterprise, and w hie If was witnessed
' by the representative of that journal. 'I'lir
cioi k was hanging to the wall iu the par-'
irtiiud h id ever been character zed for
the correctness of ita time. Suddenly
with '
WEIRD, BUZZING NOISE,
the hands began to n ove around with ex
ceedingly rapid motion, the hour hand
exactly five minims ahead ol thtmiuute
hand. In this singular position they con
tinued lo move for seventeen minutes, in
which time it had described five hours,
and each timei as it arrived at the 12
o'clock mark it would jtause and si, ike,
though with the greatest irregularity
Sometimes it would strike one hour for
another, sue'a as twelve for one, Sec, and
a. the end ot the five hours ceased its wild
movements and was i-Pi'idate Kv a r.ai-tv

late to see any of the performances, which
i ceased
ABOUT TW I LIGHT
on Friday evening, the 25. It, ajod very
nearly at theatne bonral which It began
on Thursday, the 17ih. As I have said
Mr. Sunency was iu this city at the be
ginning of the alT.iir, aud -was expected
home that evening. The train, however,
was behind, and his daughter, a young
lady of, I suppobe, 17 years, walked out
tb the track aud looked up the railroad to
see if she could discover the lights of the
expected train. While anxiously looking
she distinctly ' ,
SAW AN OBTECT
in the form of a man approaching her, but
apparently with no bad intention. She,
however, turned, and walked quietly lack
to the steps, and just as she reached thm
heard something like a chunk come whiz
zing through the air and fell to the ground
iiuile near Iter. , For ear of being laughed
at for cowardice, she concluded not to
mention it to the family, and tat down oo
the steps. -She looked immediately in the
1 I
f r I
direction he had come, but could see
nothing.
-T
THE APPARITION'.
S'ie could see it in no direction, though
the grounds are quite open, and we feel
sure, from the distance iliowu us, that she
could plainly have seen an object of a
much smaller six, especially when mov
ing. As uhe took her seat on the step,
oTher, things Htijilar to the fiisi fell around
her in vif-rv ratnd succession, and in Quite
close pro miiy, none striking her. Hiey ,
w I ' A
all came from the direction whencelche
had seen tliM apparition. She then nnjved
into the parlor, lK-re were nm gentle
uieii, Nii,ig llte'iu ia luinicier. She still
(aid nothing of it, and went iulo
j THE KITCHEN,
which adjoins the bouse, where her moth-
er was superintending the preparation of
supper, j As he was grung frou th par
lor through a passage war to the kitcUtn.
she could distinctly bear things similar to
those described, falling m ine yard and
againstnhe end of the house, apparently
moving inline ntrectton ot the kitchen.
By thti'titne she had gained the entrance,
bricEbats, bottles, &c, were idling
iS THICK PROFUSION
on .cverf side. The gentlemen prrsent
wire called, and diligent search nude,
though fiojou'e could be s-en. yet those
missiles "were falling around. It then got
among the pots nu the pt,', ihiew t)u m
oft, o vet turned the coff.-e pot. threw crock
ery, kidves, Sec , ab.Ht ih. ti or, and en
tered .he house, where similar etiong
took place. Books, glasses and oibr
things, were scattered a bout ih- fl .or. A
youi ger bro her ot Mr. Surr ncy wmf here,
sent fori and remained with the family
during! the night. : ile was one of the
priucipa) witnesses jof the
j STRANGE SCENES,
and detailed us many interesting itero.
One in particular was, that while standing
before jl he fire in tlie par or, looking to

tmp.obable poaitiou that a man's eves and
til an. sure ot little value to him. That the
f-cheme is c. ncocted froui motives of pro
hf, is alike l,utib,as we were assured by
disinterested authority, that in the past
week Mr. Surrency had fed no lees ihau
ONE TUOUrAND PEOPLE,
lodg-'i.g them at night, and all without
cln:gi ig one dime. We can bear witness
to this to some extent fioiu last Sunday's
olserations, and judittg troui what we
8 tw in the tieighborhood ot Mr. uriency's
cane patch, we would gueos that a good

by either himself or family, is equally
absurd, as it is highly iwij.robable tlit
