We get the above from the Wilmington
Journal. Judge Spencer, who ia refer

red to above, died in 1794. Wheeler,
in his history of North Carolina, referring
to Mr. Spencer's death says : "His
death was caused by a most singular cir
cumstance. He had been in ill health,
and was sitting in his yard in the sun.
A large turkey gobbler was attracted by
some part of his clothing, which was red,
for which color turkeys have a great an
tipathy. The turkey attacked Judge
Spencer most furiously, and before assis

tance conm rescue mm, so severely was
he wounded, that he died in a short time
from the injuries."
This story seems incredible, but it is so
an authenticated as to leave no room to
doubt.
Singular and Fatal Acident .
We have unaccountably overlooked
the following obituary notice of the late
Judge Spencer, of our Slate, which we
find in the r ayetteaville Gazelle. The
reference to the particular incident con

follows the obituary, is from a Pbiladel

the original article in the Gazette :

Messrs Meroney & Bro.
Gentlemen : In reply to your inquiry as to the merits of the Ouanahani Guano, I will state
that I have given it a fair, and, as I think, a thorough test, and believe it to be one of the best
fertilisers now in use in our country. In tbe month of February 1 bought two tons and applied
it over mjr farm at the rate of 200 pounds to the acre under Cotton, and 100 poundstothe acre on
Corn. On the 8th of October I picked from one row of Cotton 14 rods long, which had been
fertilised at the above rate, 8 pounds of seed cotton ; from another immediately by the side of
this one, of the same length, to which 1 had applied no fertiliser, 1 picked 1 ounces tbe same
day showing difference of over 8500 per cent, between land fertilised and not. I counted the
number of unopened bolls in each, and making calculation on this basis, I find that the' land
without the Guanahani would yield 30 ounces to the row, 80 rows or 150 pounds to tbe acre ;
with Guanahani it will yield 12 pounds to the row, 80 rows or 960 pounds to tbe acre showing
a difference of over 600 per cent.
I have not had an opportunity to test the Corn yet, but from general observation, I feel war
ranted in making the statement that Guanahani has benefited my Corn at least 100 per cent.
On one acre of ground, as a test, I sowed 400 pounds of Guanahani broadcast, subsoiling at
the same time 15 inches deep. This acre, under ordinary circumstances, has average 700 pounds
of seed cotton ; this year the yield will be at least 1800 pounds E. A. PROPST.
I've Been Thinking.
I've been thinking, I've been thinking.
Wbat a glorious world were this,
Did folks mind their business more.
And mind their neighbors' less !
For instance, you and I, my friend.
Are sadly prone to talk
Of matters that concern us not
And others' follies mock.
I've been thinking, if we'd begin
To mind our own affairs.
That possibly our neighbors might
Contrive to manage theirs.
We have faults enough at home to mend
It may be so with others ;
It would seem strange if it were not,
Since all mankind are brothers.
Oh ! would that we had charity
For every man and woman ;
Forgiveness is the mark of those
ili whom "to err is human. '
Then let us banish jealously
Let's lift our fallen brother;
And as we journey down life's road,
Do good to one another.

Gentlemen: In reply to your inquiry as to the merits of Guanahani Guano, I would say
that I used it last Summer on an old field which woold have produced very poorly under ordi
nary circumstances but which nnder the application of Guanahani yielded me a very wood crop.
I had one test row and this showed a difference of over three hundred per cent, in favor of the
Guano.
I am satisfied that it is a eood Fertiliser and take pleasure in recommending it to every far
mer who wishes to increasehis crops as being fully equal if not superior to any Guano on the
market.

A Cure for Lock-jaw.
In course of the Cantor lectnrcs, recen
tly delivered before the Biitirh Society of
Arts by Dr. Benjamin Richardson, the
following deeply important remarks were
made upon nitrite of amy : One of jhese
specimens, I mean the nitrite of amy!,
has within the last few years obtained a
remarkable importance, owing to its ex
traordinary action upon the body. A
distinguished chemist, Prof. Guthrie,
rlulu distilling over nitrite of amyl from
amylic alcohol, observed that the vapor,
when inhaled, quickened his circulation,
and marie him feel as if he hsd been run
ning. There waa flushing of his face,
rapid action of his heart, aud breathless
ness In 18G1-C2 I made a careful and
prolonged study the action of this singu
lar body, and discovered that it produced
its effect by causing an cxtremo relaxa
lion, first of the blood vessels, and after
ward of the muscular fibrers of the body.
To such an exteut did this agent thus
relax, I found it wonld even overcome the
tetanic epasm produced by strychnia ; and
having thus discovered its action, 1 ven
tured to propose its use for removing t lie
spasm iu some of the extremist spasmo
dic diseases. The results have more than
realized my expectations. Uuder the in
fluence of this agent, one of the most
agonizing of known human maladies,
called augina pectoris, has been brought
under such control that the paroxysms
have been regularly prevented, and iu one
instuuee, at least, altogether removed.
Even tetanus, or lock-jaw, has been sub
dued by it, and in two instances, of an
extreme kind, so effectively as to warrant
the credit of what may be trnly called a
cure.

,Thc electrical girl: In the beginning
of 1S46, a year memorial in the history
of table-tnrnnig and spirit rapping, An
gel que Colli o was a girl of fourteen, liv

Perriere, department of Orue, France.
She was of low statue, but of , robust
frame, and apathetic to au extraordinary
degree both in body and in mind. 0:i
January lb of the year named, while the
girl was, with three others, engaged in
weaving Bilk thread gloves, the oaken
table at which they worked began to
move and change position. The work
women were alarmed : work was for a
moment suspended, but was soon resumed.
But, when Aagclique ng tin took her place
the (able began anew tc move with great
violence ; she. felt herself attracted to it,
but, so soon st she touched it, it retreated
before her, or was even upset. The fol
lowing morning similar phenomena were
observed, aud before long public opinion
was very decided in affirming that An
geliqne Cottiit was possessed of a devil,
