THE EVENING STAR EXTRAORDINARY, IF TRVK. [The story below will tenia the ftlife of tm reader pretty badly, but isextraordinarily well got up, to fay the least?Ed. Star.] A Gipsy Wwai Ccaiti Fit* llz?rdi/r?* * Slaw'* Itma^kt A correspondent ot Ike Halifa* (N. 8.) Sun, writing from Batburst details an extraordina ry cireumstacce. A farmer near the town, (which ia in Gloucester county,) named Jas. ' -*- w for tiirH y?an and a half con Muaw*. emaaiation. lined to hie *4 Z i ""17' i'Tf 1 1U Medical aestotaso* In vhli, 4ud he lln nttd and lingered, nnUI a gipsy woman off^ u to core mm lor |1U0. The offer accepted, and a younger brother of the invalid, named Charles, thna describe* h*i moae of treatment: "We went with her to her camp; immediately alter entering ws had some bread and ham, Jim and I be h eating heartily. After dinner the gipsy said she wished to speak with me alone. I went into the woods, back from the camp, when she at once arked me if I was willing that Jim shonld be handcuffed and his feet bound, and to submit altogether to her. J said I was not 'Then,' said she, "It's no use wasting words about the matter: if d?n41 do so, he'll never be cured.' I explain herself; she said she would not, I at last consented, thinking to myself "1?rf fan ^ nothing wrong while I r?i. , had some salt pork fried, and good br>*ad. Next morning, on waking', alter a very watchful night, for I never closed my eyes, I found Jim tted up. He seemed rather put out, but the gipsy told him at once that she had done so because he was to suffer a good deal of pain before being cured. I assented to this. He said he was willing to go through with it, since he had begun. We had breakfast, salt pork and bread; I fed Jim, and we laughed at the farce, as we considered it 1 bad no faith at all in her. ?' After breaktast 1 talked with the gipsy, and asked her what she meant: told her 1 was no child, and must either know her plans or I would unloose Jim, and go home again. She then told me that she knew that Jim had some living reptile in him, and that the only way to cure him was to teed him with salt food for a day or two, and then stop him from drinking altogether, when the animal would come out to seek water. She bad cured others, but I must expect to see him suffer awful pain and torture when his water was stopped, but it would be only for 24 or 30 hours. I went to Jim, told him all, and askPd him 11 he was willing to undergo it Says he, 'Charley, that woman has it: I'll stand it.' Well, that day passed? salt pork and bread, and Jim a very limited supply of water; the next day the same, till after dinner, when the water was completely stopped. Now commenced the work. He begged and prayed for water; he howled till be was hoarse: the woman then gave him a drink of what 1 considered water, but which she told me after was salt pork fat melted, with water on the top; be drank it in a few mouths ful, and in a few minutes more he was worse than ever. He begged me to shoot him, to c rown him, to do anything with him, only not leave him in that state: toward evening he be came quite ont of his mind; water and springs was all he raved abont He lay that way for some time, almost until morning, when he got into a high fever. I got alarmed, and told the gipsy I thought it had gone far enough; that Jim was too weak to stand it. She told me I could do as 1 liked, but if I wonld leave him two honrs longer I wonld see whether ahe or the doctors were right She likewise told me that if 1 loosed lum he would kill himself drinking at the ffrst water we met. I tried her. ?? In about an hour after, she asked me to drag him to the spring a few rods away from ine camp. We got him beside it. She laid his head with his lips almost touching the water; she took op a birch panikin, and commenced lifting up water and letting it fall just before his lips. He was all this time quiet as if he were desd; sometimes only he gave a slight shiver, his moutb wide open, and his eyelids opened and shut; the white of the eye only was seen. After about ten minutes, she said to me, ?Now whose right? But keep quiet' I leaned over and saw a large green lizard peeping out of his mouth; it did not seem as if it wanted to come out, but drew itself in again. 'It will come out again,' said the gipsy. While ahe was speaking two lizards glided out of his mouth Into the water. The gipsy quietly killed one with a stick and I killed the other. We waited again for five minutes, when three came out but not together. These we killed, although one almost escaped from the water to his moutb ere it was completely despatched. We then waited nearly an hour longer, but no more made their appearance. The gipsy then said: ?There's no more,' and proceeded to pour water on Jim's forehead. She did so twenty minutes. She then gave him about a spoonful Tnoutfi.*rsfie "te'pf him^'on^ned^fiat'ciay a!n<3 half the next before she let him free, gradually increasing his allowance of water. ' Such ia the story told by Mr. Charles Mu lock, and, although I am not personally ac quainted with the gentleman, I am informed that he is one of the last men in the country to tell a wilful untruth. One fact, however, is clear?his brother has completely recovered his health, and not only his health, but his flesh, and now weighs 160 pounds, his former weight being only 73. The lizards are of a bottle-green color, about five inches long, red eyes, and forked tongues. There ia a pecu liarity about them different from the ordinary lizard tribe, there being only two feet, and sloping thence In a wedge into a tail. Two of them have been preserved in spirits and for warded to Prof. AgasBiz, of Harvard Univer sity. One is preserved In spirits and ia kept in Mr. Ferguson's office, and tne other two were forwarded to Prof. Jack, who has written to a legal gentleman here to say that these are the only specimens he has ever met with, with the exception of one found in the Museum of the University of Munich, that is called the La errta homo In the language of the schools; and the Munich specimen was supposed to be the only one extant, although it is well known to the ancients. ?? The description given by Py thagoras," says he, "I have read with your specimens before me, and I have yet failed to discover in any respect the sligh:est difference in their formation or color." He thinks that Mr. Mulock most havt received them in an embryotic state by some of those mysterious secrets that are found in every pathof science. A species, he says, corresponding to it, ia un known to live on land, and all naturalists have agreed that it requires the local action of the human stomach to produce it This is, he says, the only explanation that can be offered that is not unphilosophical; his parallel is clear and striking. He savs, " the pine forest Is cut down, its own species seldom appears upon the same aoil, but birch, poplar, and small shrubbery succeed; these again in their turn being destroyed are succeeded by the whortle, bramble, and raspberry," and arguea that a certain local cause found In unison with a certain developed germ Is neces sary to produce such an effect; that in this way only the lizard was produced, contrary to the opinion of various ancient writers and common vulgar belief, that they are received into the system by drinking water, or some other natu ral cause of that description. He has likewise sent to the same gentleman aseriesof questions to propound to the gipsy: where the other causes occurred; were they similar in forma tion to those t Ac., Ac., he having been put in possession of all the facts when the specimens were sent him.
