Lcsus Nature-?On Sunday evening last a slave on the Duncan plantation, a I'tw miles above this town, was delivered cf a still-born famale child, which is an objcct of great curiosity. It has two cp-ues, two necks, two heads, three legs ar.'l three arms, yet but one body ! The heads and necks are perfectly formed, avr] ic? tho proper place and position, exccpt that theie are two of them; so sr<' two ol the legs and two of the arms, bat ti e extra onos are malformations ' he third arm projects from between the shoulder-biades, :?r.d is tolerably well farmed, even to the hand, the nails of which are Itfpger and more clawish-look ing than usual. The third leg is much i tore deformed thin the arm, being only about one half the regular length, and ending in a foot that looks more like a great toe, with an immense claw at tached to it, than anything else we can think of. It a'so protrudes from the < *ok. between the os sacrum and the os coccyx, but nearer to the former. The eh;itl is of the usual size and weight, Having attained nature's appointed time, crd was alive * ^.hort time previous to it * ill-birth. It is now in the posses fci< n of Drs. Lyman & Smith, who have it preserved in alcohol, a^d suspended in a Itr^e glass jar, in which position many h?.ve wj.u^td this wonderful freak ol na urc.?[Franklin {La.) Banner.
