As soon as the Door woman saw him enter the cottage she ran to ward him, clasped him in her arms, and cried.

The wandering priest now left his charge to the care of his family and a on quitted Lierganes ; the general impres .?ton being that the youth had, through his in !,he 8ea> ,ost bis intellect, with it all recollection of his early years It is very natural to sui pose that the' new* ot Francisco s return should produce a -Trent 1? !,h? neighborhood People of all r.inks flocked to see this extraordinary pcr U> .nfnJl iV ?i 6ev#ral ?randoe< invited him IPh tW JS at the5r in order to observe him more minutely. Here he was ckisely examined, and many men of the hieh e.t character asserted that his back and lie other partg of his body were covered with scales somewhat similar to those of a fish while other individuals, who saw him a few years subsequently, treated this part of the story as a fable As regards the rest of his person?he was ?n teet in height, neiihcr particularly thin nor stout; his figure was awkward ; the hair ot hio head was of a reddish tinge, 4.nd quite short He had no color in his face and his n.uls were entirely destroyed, as if the salt water h.d corroded them He could not en dure shoes, and always went barefooted If clothes were given him he would wear them ? if tot, he would go with perfect iadiflerence without them. And the same as regarded his food : whatever was placed before him he , ate without evincing the slightest pieferecco j for one dish over another; and if hi mother neglected to provide him with meat, te never , asked for any. Occasionally he would utter 1 . a few words, but without any evi 1 dently meaning nothing by these soun ,s ' He I O .uld find bis way perfectly to pltc-s with , which he had been previously acquainted - and his principal employment consisted in , carrying letters about the neighborhood | Hence, we may conclude, that although he - never replied to any question* that wore put * to him, he fully understood the oiders he re- , , reived lie was even conscientious in the J u scharge of these commissions, and the sender , uld always rely upon his punctuality Once wa8 dispatched with a letter from Lier Ifanes to Santander. A broad sheet of water traversed by a ferry boat, interrupts the way between these two towns ; and ro the present occasion the ferry boat was missing, where upon he immediately, without reflection, walked into the water, and swam across to the opposite shore, arriving in Santander in a very wet condition ; but on being questiontd is to what had occurred, he gave no answer, and without saying a word delivered the let ters correctly, and then returned to Liergane-" Hi? relations never thought of finding any steady employment for him again, a* he ap- . paared totally unfit for the most ordinary pur suit In this way, without speaking, and ap patently without thinking, he continued for nine long years to live under his mother s rx>f. Both she and her friends had become juite accustomed to his odd ways? and he gradually sank into obscurity Suddenly, however, he Pgaiu disappeared from the vil lage, and nothing was ever afterwards heard U him Sjme fishermen pretended to have ?een a figure bearing a strong resemblance to him in the harbor of Asturias ; but this new? was never confirmed, and no trace of the mis sing Francisco was ever found The proba bility is. that he again betook himself to the ?ea, notwithstanding that his youthful ardor for the water had long vanished, and that he bad, ever since his oapture at Cadie, evinced the most perfect indifference toward every thing around him Tieck. who has carefullv examined this strange history, thus concludes bis account of it: " That the captured man was the lost boy _?f Lierganes. there is every reason to believe, for he himself knew his birthplace again, he found his way there, his mother and brothers recognized him at first sight aa their own lost b rancisco. The idiot could scarcely have acted the ro!e of an impostor for ten years, since no advantage accrued from it, nor was he in a position to derive the slightest benefit from the lie His family could not be anxious to deceive any one in that quiet little town. more especially as the maintenance of the un fortunate was nothing but a burden to them Moreover, besides his immediate relations, several men of eminence and the most un doubted respectability bore witness to the gen uineness of this Francisco, so that we must class this incident with some of the most re markable phenomena of nature, to explain which often baffles the ingenuity of the phil osopher. It is greatly to be deplored that when fished out of the sea, this singular being fbould have been little better, mentally, than a block of 6tone Had he retained his mem ory, and regained the power of speech, it would have been highly instructive and inter esting to have learned how he had supported himself in the water. Divers can certainly hold their breath for some time ; but, whether any human bodies possess the capacity, and may be able to cultivate this capacity so f?r as to enable them to dispense with air for any considerable period, is not an easy matter to admit How did he live in the sea ? What did he eat ? How did he manago to escape so long from the murderous monsters of the deep, so that he did not seem to have suffered in the slightest degree from any of them ? Could he dispense with sleep, and if not, where did he sleep? In the ocean, or on shore? His in tellect was not so much disordered as com pletely inactive and without power. If, in deed, this phlegmatio monster in rea'ity was not the long-lost Francisco (as we are almost compelled to admit ) then this m tn, whoev?r he might be, is still more remarkable than the so called fish sturba, of which even respecta ble writers relate such incredible stories. ' A Wonderful Woman?Theye is now said to be living upon Bates' Island, in Casco Bay, off the coast of Maine, a woman of the most wonderful powers of hardihood. The Island contains about five acres, the largest por ion of which she has put undorcultivation, raising handsome crops of potatoes and other vegeta bles yearly The land never was ploughed, but has been thoroughly hoed over by her. The remaining portion she devotes to raising bay of a very superior quality, every crop of whifh she has mowed and cured with her own band.
