People of strong nervous temperament at great slaves to the whims and caprices of tbei imaginations; and hence, people of good met Lai, but of very ordinary physical acquire ments, are tbe m^t subject to the tyranny r mind over matter Occasionally. a very ord nary sort of person?that is, an individual c considerable mind, but whose mental capaci ties are unstrained, and so partially undevel oped?suffers from this peculiar fact in a mot distressing degree. No doubt (says the uei physical authority) one-half tbe ills that ties is heir to are superinduced by the f?ncy of tb sufferer alone Hundreds have died by mer symptoms of cholera, yellow fever and plague induced by sheer dread and fear i f those ter ribie maladies. A case i.-* recorded wherein a felor. c?jD derailed to death by phlebotomy Lad his art laid ba.e to tho shoulder, and thrust throng' a hole in a partition, while be was fast bourn to the opposite side , the hi lden executioner upon the otber side, applied tho lancts to hi arm with a click ; the poor culprit heard th muddy stream outpouring, and soon growinj woakor and fainter, he fell into a swoon, ant died : when the tact was, not a drop of bloo< had been shed, a Burgeon havingmerely snap pod hh lancet upon the arm, and continued t jour a .-mall stream of water over the liml and into a basin! Another cafe in "pint" waa that of a Pnili duiphia amateur butcher, who. in placing thi meat upon a hook slipped, and hung himself intend of his beef, upon the bubed point 11 is agony was intense?he waa quickly taker down and carried to a physician s office, ant so great i7::s his pain (in imagination) that h< (?Tied piteously upon every motion made bi tho doctor in cutting the coat and shirt sleev* from about the wounded arm! When at las: tho arm wr.s bared, not a scratch was there' The hook point had merely grazed along thf ekin, and torn the shirt sleeve 1 wiii not multiply the various f-icts extan in proof of the- forco exercised by a misdirect ed imagination, but will mention one ca>e s ludi jrously imposing as to cause a pretty broad ?uiilo, if nut prove otherwise interesting S<>me years ago, near tho town of Beading Berks county, Peuneylvaria, there lived acoBj old farmer, named Sweigholi'er?of ticrmar. de cent, and accent, too, as his speech will indicate, old man.Sweighcfferha l once served as a member in the Legislature, and wai therefore 44 no fool;'! and a3 he had also 1< ng commanded a volunteer corps of rustic militia he should hardly be supposed incliLed t?>cow ardice.

"bonder''' echoes yrung Peter, hurrying up to the old man. 44 0, mine Gott, dor snake b?ta mine leg !:I If anything in particular was capable of frightening y?>ung Poter, it waa snakes; for he L id once nearly crippled himself lor !iie by trampling upon a c Hiked stick, which clamped his ankle, and so horrified the young man ihai he liked to have fallen through himself At the word snake, young Peter fell ba^k. nimbly as a wire-drawer, and bawled out, in turn : 4- Where is der snako ? ' 41 Up my trowsis, Poter?O, mine Gott!:' "O, mine Gott!" echoed Peter, junior, " kill him, fader, kill him " *4 No-a, no-a, he kill mo, Peter. Come? come quick? get off my trowsis!" Hut Peter the younger's cowardice over came his filial affection, while tear lent strength to his legs, and he started like a scared locomotive to call the old buiiy Dutch man, who was in a distant part of the field, to give his father a lift with toe snake. Old Jako, the farmer s assistant, camo bounding along as soon as he hoard the news, and passing along the fence whereon Peter and his boy h&a hung their "liusy woolsy" vests, Jake grabbed one of the garments and hurried off to the old man Peter, who still managed to keep on his pins, although ho was quaking and trembling like an aspen leaf in a June gale of wind. *4 0, mine Gott! Come, come quick, Ja:o'>. Ho bite me all to pieces?here up miiie leg." Old Jake was not particularly sensitive to fear, but few people, young or oid, arc dead to alarm when a 44 piienvus ' reptile is about Gathering up the stiff, dry stalks of a stalwart weed, old Jake told the boss to st.<nd steady, and he would at least stun the snake by a rap or two, if he did not kill it mouc ueid ; and tlo old man Peter, less loth to have legs bro ken than to bo bitten to death by a snake, de signated the spot to strike, ana old Jako let him have it. The first blow broke the weed and knocked old Sweigluffer < fi his psgs, and into a hajcock?cobim! 44 Oh I" roared old Peter, 41 you br-'ke mine leg and de tam shnake s gone!"' 44 Vere? vote?' cries old Juke, moving briskly about, and scanning very narrowiy ttie ground he stood upon. " Never mind him, Jacoh; help me up. Til go nome." 44 Put on your vhest.

Young Poter had shinned it home at the eai ? liest stage ef the dire proceedings, and so alarmed tho girls that they were in high state when they saw the approach of the good old dad and his aesistant. Uld man Peter was carried in, and began t j die natural as life, when in comes the old lady in a great bustle, and wanted to know what was going on. Old Peter, in the last gasp ot agony and weakness, opened his eyes and fee bly pointed to hig leg. The old woman rir poduptho pantaloons, and out fell a small thiatle top, and at the same time considerable of a scratch waa made visible 44 Call dia a ahnake ! Bah!" says the old woman.

Spiritualism caught a severe blow mhtz Judge Edmonds was induced to believe, about two years ago, the room nee of an ingenious Cahfornian. and endorsed a communication i'rom an indiridual in tbe spirit land, who had no existence ont of the fancy of hia manufac turer. Spiritualism still more recently met with a melancholy expose in Ohio, when, is presence of the lion Mr (Jiddings. two young lajy mediums purported to make a deoeased frierd. in a darkened room, blow a trumpet, and when the light come, were found to have black circles around their mouths, made by a mixture of lump-black and grease secretly -meared on the instrument, in advanoe, by an adroit spectator liut won* than all thiv ia the subjoined hoax upon the Spiritual Tale grapu, cf this city, by some aerioua wag, In the shape of a poem from the spirit of Thomas paine, but whifli proves to be an aoroitit rid* iculing spiritualism itself in the keenest man ner.
