Massacre of Christians China, in Ttn thousand native christians slaughtered Bloody anenes and heroic suffering. The French periodical, Mission Catholiques, of the last of July, gives the first authentic and detail ed narrative of the recent massacre of Roman Catholic nativo converts in China. The account, as transla ted for the London Tablet, says : " The massacre broke out on the iith of February, when tho " liter ates," as the persecuting party is i-jilled. onened the campaign! by be- headim? two men in the service of Pere Doare and a Christian, whom they then threw into the river. The saino day they burned the three villages of Trun-Lam, Fic-Vinh, and Bau-Tach, and massacred the inhabitants that were In them. Those who succeeded in escaping to the woods were hunted down with hounds, , brought back, and killed on the following day. The river was covered with bodies float ing down it from the side of Lareg. At that time the murderers were massacre! ng the christians of the parish of Iiolven, and were burn ing their villages. Those who took refuge in the cliffs of the neighbor hood were hunted down and burn ed alive. The Grand Mandarin of Justice was at the market of Sa- Nam with 800 soldiers, but remain ed an inactive spectator of the mas sacre of the christians of Nam-Du-o ig, only a few of whom were able to escape. THE I.ITEltATES, who were the heads of the militia appointed to massacre the christians, say that the work of exte rmination carried out under the ryes of the mandarins was concerteul between the court and the literates, and was done in reprisal for recent events. The mandarins have just received orders from the court not to employ any other means save those of persua sion to stop the murderers in their career. One of the chiefs, who had just caused two christians to be murdered on the high road, went on the parade before the Governor of the Citadel, by whom he was dismissed with honor. On his re turn twenty women and children fell under the sword of this man and his followers. He had just come from offering sacrifice to the goddess of prostitution, to whom a famous temple that stands near the road is dedicated. MODE OF TORTURE AND DEATTT. "In several localities they take an entire family father, mother and children bind them together with bamboos, and then fling the bundle of living humanity into the waves. First, however, they take pains to cut off the man's head. The multitude of dead bodies thus fas tened together in groups of from right to ten block up the principal river, but to the surprise of every body does not send forth any bad smell. There are then five parish es, containing 10,000 Christains, which have to be blotted out of the mission, namely: Iang-Thank, Huyen, Nam-Duon, Hoy-Yen, and Doreg Taank. Many of the victims died in the midst of flames. A village of more than four hundred Christians was attacked by the literates.and soon be came a prey to the flames. Among these 400 Christians were 120, more or less, who succeeded in saving themselves by taking refuge in a large village near by. The remain der, about 300, were nearly all mas sacred. Two small villages of Chris tiansituated two hours' walk from the place at which I then was, were hemmed in by the pagans. The mayor visited each house, number ed the Christians, and forbade them under threat of most severe punishment, to go out of doors. A few of the Christian women at tempted to go to market to keep themselves from starving. They never returned. Some pa gan women who went with them say that the Christian women were captured and beheaded. Two men from one of the same villages haz arded a flight during the night. They passed the great river by swimming, and came to me to tell the misfortunes. 4 Alas,' writes Archbishop Gauth ier, from whose letter tnis informa tion is chiefly derived, I could do nothing but weep for them, being unable to do anything to succor them! Two or three days aft er .Tardf.J iearned that all the men in the village had had their heads cut off, but the women and children were spared. And, as their houses were intermingled with those of the pagans it was forbidden to burn them down." to see the extraordinary perform ance of Mr. J. R. Brown, a young gentleman who-professes to read thoughts in tne mind of any person in his presence. Mr. Brown is about twenty-seven : years of age, very thin, and nervous The first test of his powers was made by a gentle man hiding a pencil outside the room. Mr. Brown put one nana upon the forehead of the gentleman. and holding his arm with the other went with hardly any delay to the place where the pencil was conceal ed. The pencil was then hidden under a gentleman's coat collar, and discovered in a similar manner. In this experiment the person who concealed the pencil allowed his train of thoughts to be for a mo ment broken, and the interval was marked by the young performer stepping rapidly toward the other end of the room, and, as the ideas of the man whose mind he was reading were once more brought under control, he as rapidly retraced his steps, and drew the pencil from under the collar. Another gentleman was then re quested to think of some person in the room, but walking rapidly around for some minutes Mr.Brown declared his inability to find the person thought of, and asked where he was. The gentleman then ex plained that his friend was in Cali fornia. The writer, who was a doubter, was asked to think of some person in the room. He selected Mr. Lewis Leland, the proprietor of the hotel. Mr. Brown laid his hand upon the reporter's forehead and walked quickly up the room. Before Mr. Leland he paused, and at that mo ment the reporter allowed his mind to wander to another person. In stantly Mr. Brown stepped toward the person last thought of, and then as the reporter once more concen trated his thoughts upon Mr. Le land, he wheeled, retraced his steps, loins to should. - meet it as a great nation vontemporary lievuxc. A City that Grew Fast and Died Quickly. A correspondent of a Boston pa per says: "It is not only Individ- age, thick set, of medium height, of lair intelligence, and was born in Manchester, England. He gains a livelihood by exhibiting himself to physicians. His abdomen is nat urally full, but at will, without the use of his hands, he gives it a wave like motion, and it gradually sinks in as if being wound up, until it ap parently rests close against the backbone, and he presents the ap- uals who have suddenly increased in prosperity and as' suddenly gone pearance of a man with no abdo- down into nothingness: there are cities of which the same can be said. Such a one is Pithole City, Pa. Within one month from the completion of the first house this city had a telegraph office and a ho tel costing the owners $80,000. In one month there was a daily paper established, and in the next a thea tre ; m another month, another theatre, and then an academy of music. In six months there were seventy-four hotels and boarding houses ; in the seventh month, the city had reached Its highest pros penty. It then had about 15,000 inhabitants, elaborate water works, a city hall, and an expensive city government. Then occurred the completion of labor saving enter prise, the so-called Miller Farm men, and then in the same manner he rolls it out to its original form. He then drops from his ribs a du plicate set of ribs, with a breast bone.when the original ribs and the duplicates can be distinctly felt and counted, and the whole front of his body is, as it were, Iron-clad. Or, at will, he apparently drops his heart from its natural position 12 inches, puts it back and sends it to the rirht side of his body opposite its natural position, puts it back and sends it to the lower part of the body on the right side, thus putting it in four different positions. Du ring these changes the two sounds of the heart can be distinctly heard in these new positions, and not where they usually are heard. It seems to oe necessary, however, that after each change it should go Klpe hnby whicrthe petroleum back where it belongs before being -w a - . . - iwf-iTirraauv M-M v I I I I m r I m-a m wm m-m iwfli I v w v m rimiij nil iiiiiriiriHiruii in liim im i . and put his hand on Mr. Leland's shoulder. Four gentlemen, among whom was Mr. Wells, of Fowler & Wells, phrenologists, were selected while Mr. Brown was out of the room. They passed an article from one to another, the last of the party hiding it. Mr.Brown then put his hand "ri Jli lilC 1U1C1IUU4 Ul tllU ,VsUAWUlU who had in the first instance given the article to Mr. Wells. After a Printing short search the performer stopped boring population. At once 4,000 persons were thrown out of employ ment, while 2,000 houses became useless. This was the death blow to Pithole. At once the hotels, the theatres, and the telegraph office were closed, and the daily paper gave up the ghost, whilst almost every one packed his trunk and moved out. Only nine families re main out of a population of 15,000 souls, while tho railroad from Pithole and Oleopolis runs only one train a day, consisting of a locomo tive and single car, which usually is empty; but the company are obliged to keep running otherwise the character of the road would bo lost. They still hope against hope for better times forjnat unfortunate city, which, in only seven months, was born, full grown, got sick and died. Undoubtedly this is a case unparalleled in history, modern or ancient. Neither Egypt nor Greece can give example of such rapid the power to stop the beating of his heart at will from five to ten sec onds at a time. He seems also to have considerable strength, easily bending by a blow on the arm a heavy iron cane which he carries. Several of our prominent physicians have examined him, from one of whom we have obtained these facts, and pronounce him to be the great est curiosity in physiology they have ever seen or heard of. Provi dence Ii. I.) Journal. Kidnapping in England. A correspondent sends the Boston Journal the following account of a kidnapping case in England nearly forty years ago, which in some of its aspects resembles very much the case of the Ross child in Philadel phia. A similar explanation of the Ross case has been hinted at in some of the newspapers, but the suspi cions seem to be satisfactorily ex plained away. " About thirty-eight years ago a similar case to that of the Ross boy's kidnapping at Philadelphia occur red in England. A beautiful child was stolen, and the robbers notified the father that his child could be ransomed for the sum of five thou sand pounds. The father replied through the directed channel that he was a poor man, and could not raise the five thousand pounds. the busy hum of her manufactories will be heard in every valley, and the vast wealth buried m the bow els of her mountains be brought lortn to enrich her citizens and add to the nation's wealth and commer cial importance.-.

Large rewards were offered; ministers preached from the pulpits about it. Great sympathy was felt for the pa rents, the money was raised, the child was recovered, but all his beautiful curls had been cut close off. The police and detectives were totally unable to make any discov eries as to who were the criminals. Many arrests were made, but with no result. " It is a well known fact that the Almost every farmer has a clump of these bushes. They are called by some " shoemake," by others, u red shoemake." Probably many farm ers may have tried to kill them by cutting them down. If they have, they know; how difficult a task it is. It grows like asparagus, all the bet ter for being cut; and when once started upon a lot and cut close once a year, it is as easy to cut as fodder. The only trouble is in curing it properly. This must be done with all the care that is given to tobacco or hops. Exposure, after cutting, Bank of England never reissues any to a heavy dew injures it, and a rain of its notes, if they have only been out even a few minutes.

This product lacks about 33$ per cent, of tho quantity of to bacco consumed last year, according to tho Internal Revenue Bureau,by domestic manufacturers. If the unsettled condition of the market should not check consumption, therefore, home manufactures in the next eighteen months will not only require the whole American crop now growing,! but also the greater part of the old stocks. leav ing comparatively nothing for ex port.
