A correspondent of Reynolds' Miscellany, who has been for many year* a practising phy sician, says that he has seen, oaring the last few months, sundry sketches of pera<?as buried alive; and always feeling a deep interest in the subject, from an occurrence that took place some twenty yeara ago, he sends that journal the following account of it for publi cation. lie adds that the narrative is a true one?unadulterated with a particle of fiction, written out by a near relative of his. and is given in the narrator's own words. It should serve as a warning to those who hasten to bury their dead out of sight I have been subject to epileptic fits from my youth upwards, which, though they did n< t deprive mo of animation in the sight of those about me, completely annihilated my own consciousness 1 used to be attacked at all times and seasons, but most commonly about the full of the moon. I generally had a warn | ing of a psculiar nature when these attacks wero coming on, that it would be difficult to describe. It was a sensation that to be known must be experienced My excellent wife Mar tha?1 mean my first wife, who has been dead now for the best part of torty years?used to 8 >y that sbo always observed an unusual pale ness over my complexion, otherwise ruddy, for a day or two before the fit came on. Bless her soul! the never let me be tor one moment out of her sight, from the instant she had a suspicion of my approaching malady. This benevolence on her part was a great means of enabling her to subdue the violence of the fit when it came, for which purpose hor expe rience had pointed out to her several useful applications 1 married again after her deceasc. became I was oppressed beyond bearing by my lone liness, which none but persons in such a situ ation?I mean a w-dower's?can tell. My second wife, whom I have also buried, was not so penetrating in the faculty of observa tion She was a woman of an admirable thrift, and to her economy it was that I owe my preservation to <he terrible event that I am about to detail, iiad I been interred in lead, it would have been all over with ma. Willing to save as much money as possible at my funeral, she had my body, with all the usual and proper grief attendant on the cere mony, put into a stout wooden coffin, the weight of which was increased by a couple of | old hundred height*. placed one on my head, the other at my feet. Thus the thing passed off well, and money waa saved to my heirs I hereby cast no reflections upon my dear de parted wife's regard for me. 1 was convinced, as I told her, that her motive was good: and well did it turn out for me that she was so thrifty and considerate. She was a true wo man, and was plain in her person?but I wan der again from my story. I had made a most excellent dinner?of this I Rave a perfect recollection. Of more than this I can recollect nothing until coming out of my fits, as I suppose?for I quickly ima gined. feeling the usual sensations, that I was recovering fir m one of them I say that on on coming to myself, I was surprised to find myself pinioned, and in utter darkness. I hid no space to stir if I would, as I soon found, while I struggled to loosen a sheet or some such thing, in which I was scantily enveloped. >ly hand would not reach my head when i at tempted to make it do so, by reason of my el how touching the bottom and my hand the top of the enclosure around me It was the attempting to do this, and find ing myself naked, except with the aforesaid covering, that struck mc that I had been en tombed alive The thought rushed suddenly upon me. My first sensations were those of | simple surprise. I was like a child aroused out of a deep sleep, and not sufficiently awake to recognise its attendants. When the truth flashed upon me in all its fearful energy. I never can forget the thrill of horr>>r that struck through me. It was as if a bullet had penetrated my heart, and all the blood in my hody had gushed through the wound Never, never, can hell be more terriblo than the sen sations of that moment. I lay motionless for a lime, petrified with terror. Then a calm dampness burst forth from every part of my body. My horrible doom seemed inevitable ; and so strong, at length became tSis impression, so bereft of hope appeared my situation, that I ultimate ly recovered from it only to plunge in the depth of a calm resolute despair. As not the faintest ray of hope could penetra'e the dark ness arSund my soul, resignation to my fate followed. I began to think of death coolly, and to caloulate how long I might survive before famine closed the hour of my exist ence I prayed that I might have fortitude to die without repining. Calmly as I then felt, 1 tried if I oould remember hew long a man could live without food. Thus the tran quility of my despair made me comparatively easy, if contrasted with the situation in whieii I felt myself afterwards, when hope began to glimmer upon me. My days must in the end be numbered. I must die at last?I wa3 only perishing a little sooner than I otherwise must have done. Even from this thought I derived consolation ; and I now think lite might have closed calmly upon me, if the pangs of hun? ger bad been at all bearable?and 1 had been told that they are much more so than is com monly believed. If my memory serves me correctly, this calm state of mind did not last long. Reason soon began to whisper to me that if I had been buried, and the earth closed around my coffin, I should not be able to respire, which i c -uld now do with ease. I did not, of course, drsam of Ue vault in which I was placed, but considered at first I had been buried on earth. The freedom of respiration gave me the idea that after all I was not carried forth for interment, but that I was about to be borne to the grave, and that there I should be suffocated inevitably. Such is the inconsistency of the human mind, that I, who had just now resigned my self to die by famine, imagined this momenta ry mode of death a hundred times more for midable. The idea that I was not yet interred, increased my anxiety to be heard from witu out. I called aloud, and struck the'sides and the lid of the coffin to no purpose, till I was honrse and fatigued, but all in vain A stilly silence reigned around me umid the unbroken darkness I was now steeped in foartul ag -t ny. I shrieked with horror. I plunged my nails into my thighs and wounded them. The coffin was soaked in my blood ; and by tear ing the wooden sides of my prison with the same maniacal feeling, 1 lacerated my fin gers, and wore the nails to the quick, and soon became motionless from exhaustion W hen I was myself once more, I called aloud my wife's name. I prayed, and I fear I blasphemed; for I knew not what I said; and I thus continued until my strength again left mo, and nature onoe more sought replen ishment in temporary insensibility At this time I had a vision of a most inde finable character, if it was one, and not a glance, as I am induced to think it was, be tween the portals of death into the world of spirits It was all shapeless and formless. Images of mon and women, often numberless ?in a short of shadowy outline?came before and around me. They seemed as if limbless from decay. Their featureless heads moved upon trunks hideously vital?in figurc-lik? bodies, which I have seen drawn forth from burning dwellings, each being rather a hid oous mis shaped mass, than human resom blance.

The toand was new life to me. " I am not inhumed, at leastsuch were my thoughts " Interment will take place? nay coffin will be moved-I shall easily make myself beard then " Men may fancy how they would find their - selves under similar circumstances, and on tho like trying occasions; but it is seldom * :orrect judgment can be previously farmed on ?ucli matters It was only at intervals that I w;u so fearfully maddened by my drealful situation a? to loee the power ef rational re flection, or so overcome as to be debarred the faulty of memory Stretched in a position where my changes consisted only of a turn on my side, upon hard boards, the serenes* of my limbs was excruciatingly painful When drew my feet up a few inches, my knee# praised the cow, so that the slight shift of position brought no relief. My impatience of the restraint m which I was kept, began at length to drive me well nigh to madness. ?\ Tu /erered temples burned and throbbed, my tongue became dry, light flash ed across my eyes, and my brain whirled round. I am certain that my existence was pre served solely by the diminished strength and ?ube ^uent feebleness whioh I experienced, and which, from it* rendering me insensible to tbe increasing exacerbation of my brain's boat, allowed nature to resume her wonted temperature But, alas ' this was only that I ?v've to encounter once more irreme diable horror. Who eould depict the frenzy the unspeakable anguish of my situation ? burning tears flowed down my cheeks. My heart was swollen almost to bursting. I be came restless in feeling, without finding space for a fanned relief in a new change of position in my mental anguish, at times, however. I forgot my motionless bodily suffering?my rack of immovable agony Uow many hours I lay in this state of active and passive torture I cannot tell My thirst however, soon became intolerable My mouth seemed fall of hot ashes. I heard again the hollow sound of a clock bell, of no small mw nitude. judging fr?m its deep intonation No cranny which I had hitherto observed in my prison let in light?though I well knew there must be some fissure for the fresh air, for the oocti nuance of life so far How else had I existed ? It was night, perhaps, when I first came tj myself in my prison of "six dark boards " I groped in vain over every part of their wood en surface which I eould reach I could find no chink, could see no day Again I heard the hollow knell, which tended to increase mv feartul agony. Oh, what were my feelings ! I-or a long time after this I lay steeped in mv suffering-or at least for a long time as it seemed to me. My he-td was bruised all over llmo?.w#r? excessively sore?the skiu rubbed off in many places with my struirelin* my eyes aching with pain I s >ught relief by turning on my right side-I had never before turned but on my left?when I felt under me a hard substance, which I had not bef re perceived. I grasped it with some difficulty and soon found it was a knot from the coffiu plank, which had been forced inwards in all probability, after I was {la?ed there I saw also a dun light through a hole, about as large as a half-crown piece, just below where my chin cime. I put my hand to it. and found it covered with coarse cloth, which I easily imagiued wis the lining of my coffin I soon contrived to force my finger through this cloth, though not without considerable diffi culty. Faint enough a as the light it revealed but it was a noonday sun of ioy to me. By yx uneasy strain of my neck, I could see ob liquely through the opening, but everything was confu:el in my brain My sight wag cloudy, heavy, and thick I at first could only see there was light, but could distinguish no object. ^ My senses, however, seemed to sharpen as new hopes ar ?se. I olosed my eyes for a min ute together. and then opened them, to restore their almost worn out power of vision. At length I could distinguish that immediately opposite to me there was a small window cr ssed by massy iron bars, through which the' light I saw streamed in upon me Tike joy into the soul of misery. I now cried with delight. I thought I was among men again, for the pitchy darkness around me was dispersed I forgot for a moment my sufferings. Even the fearful question, how thould I get free from my durance betore famine destroyed me was ii long time absent from my mind, and did not recur until I could look through the fisfure no longer, from the giddinefs caused by a too earnest fixedness of gate. I sjon concluded, irom the massy stones on each side of the opening, and the strength of tno bars, that I was in a church vault t and this if 9.s confirmed when I came to distinguian the ends of two or three coffins, which partly interposed between me and the light. 1 watched the window until the light began to grow dim, with feelings no language can de scribe, no tongue tell. A? the gloom of night approached, my bet?rt began to beat faiuter, and my former agonies returned with tenfold weight, notwithstanding which, I imagine I must have slept some. I was sensible of a noise, like the grating of a heavy door upon its hinges, wheu I revived or awoke?I can not say which?and I saw the light of a candle stream across the fissure in mj coffin I called out? For the love of your soul, release me ' 1 am buried alive !" The light vanished in a moment. Fear "ceined to have palsied the hand that held it for r heard a rough voioe desire the holder of it to return " If there's auy one here, he's soldered up, Tom, hand me the light. The dead never ?peak. Jim, the Snatcher, is not to be scared by rotten flesh." Again I called as loud as I could?** I am buried alive-save me!" ''Tom, the axe!'' creid the undaunted body catcher; 44 the voice comes from this boa. The undertaker made too great butrte, I sup pose. *' In a few minutes I was sitting upright in ucy ctffia Evcr afterwards I eberisbed a strong regard fer resurrection men, who never asked a guinea of me in vain.
