[From the Spiritual Telegraph, (October 26.] SENATOR TALMADGE S LATEST SPIRIT UAL EXPERIENCE. Remarkable Cases of '-Second Sight " INTERESTING FROM WISCONSIN. [The facts contained in the following letter from Hon. N. P. Talmadge are interesting a* illustrations of the remarkable powers-of me diamship possessed by Mrs French. We thank the Governor for communicating them, and beg leave to assure him that it wul afford our selves and our readers great pleasure to hear from him more frequently.] Fohd du Lac, Wisconsin. Oct. 11, 1854. M-esxrs. Partridge *V Brittan: Mrs Frenoh, of Pittsburg, who has been with us for the last week or ten days, left this morning on her return home. By her amiable and lady-like deportment, she has won the esteem of all who have been so fortunate a.? to make her acquaintance. One evening, to a very large auaieoce, she related her expe rience in 'spiritual manifestations/' and at the close was entranced and spoke most elo quently to the delight and astonishment of all present. While Mrs. French was at my house there were some remarkable occurrences worthy to be mentioned. She arrived on Saturday even ing, and stated that on Friday, on board the steamer from Chicago to Sheboygan, she was confined to her berth from sea-sickness, with frequent retching and vomitiog. On Saturday morning, at five o'clock, she was aroused having been troubled about home the evening before. The following communication, which she showed me, was written by her hand uu der spiritual influence: " There was no cholera reported in the Pitts burg papers for the 29th. 1 was at your house last evening, and saw Mr. C.; write you to that effect?so you need have no fears about home. All is well!" Early on Sunday evening she was entranced? said she had been to New York; saw a large number of people assembled at Dodworth .? Academy, and they were talking about Mr. Courtney, of Pittsburg, who was to lecture there that evening Mrs French expressed her surprise at hi* lecturing there at that tiiue. because she saw Mr. Courtney just before she left Pittsburg, an 1 did not know that he thought of going to New Yor* to lecture. lie said he should net leave the city till the chol era abated. At ten o'clock on Sunday evening Mrs French was again entranced; went home, saw the family alJ in bed except her unele, Mr. C lie was writing her ; commenced his letter No 4, ten o'clock, Sunday evening; said the family were in bed ; very anxious about her, not having heard from her; that the cholera had entirely disappeared from Pittsburg. In due course of mail Mrs. French received a letter from Mr C. marked No. 4. and dated ten o'clock, Sunday evening, and stating pre cisely what sho had geen ard related in her trance state. Al.-o a letter from Mr French, stating that her little daughter (who is a me dium) had seen her in bed on boar I *he boat on Friday, and very aick and votnv.mg, and they were all anxious about her. in due time, too, 1 received the Spiritual Telegraph, containing a notico that Mr Court ney, of Pittsburg, would lecture at Dodworth's Academy on Sunday forenoon and evening '. Mrs. French has astonished every one who has seen her by her accurate description of diseases, and her prescriptions have already given relief in cases which have baffled the skill of the ablest physicians. Skepticism has in some instances, yielded to the9e evi dences of her spiritual ^ower in healing. The cause in Wisconsin is "onward and upward " Very respectfully yours, N. P. T'ALLMAI>U?. Talleyrand and Arnold. There was a day when Talleyrand arrived in Havre, hot foot from Paris It was the darkest hour of the Frenoh Revolution. Pur suod by the blood hounds of this feign of ter ror, stripped of every wreck of property and nower, Talleyrand secured a passage to Amer 10a, in a ship about to sail. He was a beggar and a wanderer in a strange land, to eaia hie daily bread by daily labor. " Is there an American staying at your house?" he asked the landlord of the hotel I am bound to oress the water, and would like a letter to a person of influence in the New World." The landlord hesitated a moment and then replied : " There is a gentleman ups'airs either from America or .Britain, but whether un .American or Englishman, I cannot tell." He pointed the way, and Talleyrand?who, in bis life, was bishop, prince and prime min ister?ascened tne stairs A miserable sup pliant, he stood before the stranger's door, knocked and entered. In the far corner of the dim'y lighted room, sat a man of some fifty years, his arms folded and his head bowed on his Dreast. From a window directly opposite a flood of light uoured upon his forehead. His eyes looked irom beneath thofciowncast brows, and gazed upon Talleyrand's face with a peculiar and searching expression. His face was striking in ?utline ; the month and chin indicative of an iron will. His form vigorous, even with the snows of fifty, was clad in a dark, but rich and distinguished costume. Talleyrand advanced?stated that he was a fugitive?and under the impression that the gentleman before Lim was an American, soli cited his kind and fueling offices. He poured out hishist jry in eloquent French and broken English: "lama wanderer, an ex'de. I am forced to fly to the New World, \ Ithout a friend or home. 1'ou are an American. Give me then, 1 beseech you, a letter of yours, so that I may bo able to earn my bread. I am willing to toil in any manner, the scenes of Paris have seised me with horror, that a life of labor would be a Paradise to a career of luxury in France. You will give me a letter t j your friends ? A gentleman like you has doubtless many friends." The strange gentleman rose. With a look that Talleyrand never forgot, he retreated to wards the door of the next chamber, his eyes looking still from beneath his darkened brow. He spoke as he retreated backward; his voice was full ef meaniug: * I am the only man born in the New World who tan raise his hand to God and say, I have not a friend?sot one in all America." Talleyrand never forgot the overwhelming sadness of the look which accompanied these few words. "Who are you?" he oried, as the strange man retreated toward the next room; " what is your name ?" "My name," he replied, with a smile that had more ef mockery than joy in its convul sive expression; "My name is Benedict Ar nold!" He was gone. Talleyrand sunk into a chair gasping the words : " Arnold the traitor!" Thus he wandered over the earth, another Cain with the wanderer's mark upon his brow. Utility and Sagacity of Siberian Dog*. Of all the animals that live in the high nor' h latitude, none are so deserving of being noticed as the dog. The companion of man,in all cli matos, from the islands of the South Sea, where e feeds on bananas, to the Polar Seas, where is food is fish, he here plays a part to whioh he is unaccustomed in more favorod regions. Necessity has taught the inhabitants of the northern countries to employ the comparative ly weak animals in draught On all the coasts of the Polar Sea, from the Obi jo Behring's Straits, in Gieenland, Kamchatka, and in the Kuril? Islands, th? dogs are made to draw sledges loaded with persou and with goods, and for considerable journeys. The dogs bare much resemblance ?? the wolf. They hare Iong."pointed, projecting no?cs, ehaip and op right ears, and a long busby tail; some have smooth and some have curly hair, tbeir color is various?black brown, reddish-brown, whirs and spotted. They rary also in piie: but it is considered that ago* i -ledge-dog should not be less than two feet seven and a-half inches in height, and three feet tbrc 3 quar ters of an inch in length (Knglisa raermre ) Tbeir barking is like the howling of a wolf. They pass their whole life in the open air; ia summer they dig holes in the ground for cool ness. of lie in the water to avoid the musqui toes: in winter they protest themselves by burrowing in the snow, and lie curled up with their noses covered by their bushy tails. The femp'e puppies are drowned, except enough tu preserve the breed, the males alone being used in draught. Thoee born in winter, enter on their training the following autumn, but are not nsed in long journeys until the third year The feeding and training is a particu lar art, and much skill i? required in driving them. The best trained dogs are used as leaders; and as the quick and steady going of the team, usually twelve dugs, and the safety of the driver, depend on the sagacity and docility of the leader, no pains are spared in their education, so that they may always obey their master's voice, and not be tempted from their course when they oome on scent of game. This last is a point vf great difficulty; sometime* a whole test), in such cases, will start off, and nu endeavors, on the part of the drivers, can stop them. On such occasions we have sometimes had to admire the cleverness with which the wall trained leaders endeavor to turn the other dogs from their pursuit; >f other devices fail, he will suddenly wheel round, and by barking, as if be had come on a new scent, try to in duce the other dogd to follow hiui if travel ing across the wild tundra in dark nights, or when the vast plain is veiled in impenetrable mist, or in storms or snow tempest^, when the traveler is in danger of missing the sheltering do warns, and of perishing in the snow, he will frequently owe his safety to a good leader; if the animal has ever been in this plain, and has stripped with his mr?ter at the dowarna, he will be sure to bring the sledire fo t .e place where the hut lies deeply buried in the snow; when arrived at it. he will suddenly stop, and indicate significantly the spot *here his mas ter must dig.?Voh Wrung!*'* Polar S-as.

The officers at once went to find hiin. and by means of shovels, hoes, Ac., sev eral were enabled to get under the floor and zrope around, which they did, dragging them selves at full length, and with great dithoi ty, f..r a distance of thirty feet from the place they entered, and from one side of the build ing to the other. Of course, there was no light, the ground was damp, the air sufloca'ing. and the whole programme of the hardest kind. Af'.er hunt ing in ihisway4 o'clock, p m , until 8 o'clock, one of the officers la<d his band on the young rascal, wedged in a spot so closely that he could neither move forward or backward, and where in a short time longer he must have suflocated to death. He was, of course, hauled out. and with his cemrade was thereupon sent to the polioe office, and thence to the jail. During the search. Little had crawled across the track of the officers several times to evade rhem. and but for getting wedged in a tight spot, would yet, to judge from his precocious cunning and hardihood been leading them on the subterranean search.
