Jones is anxious for the coming novelist who will write “The last of the Modocs,’- to be put in bis library at the side of “The Hat of the Mohicans.” A Silver City miner remarked, alter attend ing a prayer meeting a few weeks ago, that it “was the first time he had heern the word ot GOd handled for close onto forty ycar.” The Australians never sue for a divorce.

On Sunday Mr. Beecher spoke of repining old age and itsqucruloumess, and prayed that he might die suddenly rather than that his life should leak out that way.

A Tough Yarn. A YOUNG LADY GOES INTO A TRANCE AND TYPIFIES TIIB CRUCIFIXION — BLOODY NAIL-TIOLER IN UEB FIANDH AND FEET. An event occurred in this city on Friday last (Good Friday) which has created intense excitement in the narrow circle where the circumstances arc known. The human mind is prone to belief in the supernatural and no matter how much reason and com mon sense stand in the way to perfect faith in such agencies, yet there is a disposition to ac cept many events out of the ordinary way as having been produced by a mysterious and anmijiotent power. This is not the age of miracles, we are told, and yet, now and then wonts occur, so unaccountable, mysterious, inexplicable, that our faith in the axiom is greatly shaken. The case we are about to aarratc is a parollel almost to that wonderful manifestation which took place in Virginia City a few months ago, and, and which is yet unexplained to the satisfaction of unbe lievers in spiritualism or other theorias not strictly in accordance with established laws. A young lady named Collius, residing at 1106 Pine street, is the person directly interested. Miss Collius is an English girl, twenty-two years of age, an orphan, and has some proper ty in her own right. Some years ago she was converted from her mother-faith to that of Catholicism, and like most converts she lias been an ardent devotee, and is more than de vout in her religions observance of the re quirements of her new religion. Miss Collins resides with a lady companion nearly her iwn age, the two keeping house, which is presided over by an elderly English lady, in ihe position oi housekeeper. Both young adics arc highly respectable, being regular ittendants at all services in the church of ivhich they are members, and being under the irchbishop and other clergy of St. Mary’s ca Jiedrai. Miss Collius is what may be called a rolunteer sister of charity. She goes around risitine tho sick, aiding the destitute, and do ng other work of the sisters whenever she las the opportunity. On Thursday night ast, after a hard day’s tramp in going among lome poor people in a remote, part of the city, she was taken very ill. She felt a severe inadachc and was seized with a semi-uncon sciousness which’alarmed her companion, and induced the latter to send for aid. A messenger was dispatched to the Rev. Dr. Prendergast, and also to several of the lady’s Catholic friends, and they were soon in attendance at her bedside. Thai night lier condition grew worse, and the friends be ;ame seriously alarmed. The next day (Good Friday) Miss Collins suddenly went nto a trance, and then it was that the start ing manifestation of which we write took flace-tSuddenly the persons watching by her jedside obssrved red spots come in the mid lie of her hands. The spots grew redder and •odder, and in a few moments blood flowed from them. The spots had the appearance jf wounds made by piercing with a nail. They went clear through the hands, showing is plainly in the palm as on the back, and they discharged blood from both sides. The persons in attendance at the bedside when these remarkable phenomena took place were Father Pendergast, D. J. Oliver and wife, Mrs. Richardson Tobin, Mrs. C. D. 3'Sullivan, the housekeeper and Miss Col lin’s companion. The appearance of the wounds led to an examination, and two wounds of precisely similar character were round on the feet. Like the hands, thev ex liibitcd two deep red spots, from which the flood flowed quite freely. Another large spot, from which the blood likewise oozed, was found on the right side just below the ireast. During all this time tlic young lady ay in a comatose state and never breathed iven. She lay in that state all of Good Fn lay, bwt iu the evening she showed signs of •ecovery. The blood ceased to flow from he supernatunliy inflicted wounds, though the spots remained red and inflamed. The next day Miss Collins recovered conscious ness, and sha is now as well as ever. She yet bears with her the red spots, however, and there seems to be no indication of their fading away. As soon as the mysterious af fair got noised abroad among her friends she was made the subject of a good deal of atten tion. On Sunday the house was crowded with visitors. An eltort was then made to keep the alfaii from reaching the public, and those who witnessed the phenomena were pledged to secrecy.
