The rose is budding on thy clim k,
And the lilly on thy brow.
Thine eyes are of starry luster,
Little eyes of luiishiuir blue.
And around thy head does cluster
Waving hair of gulden hue.
There is music in thy whisper,
Sweeter than th. Mincing bird,
For thou art a ceaseless lispi r,
Fond of many a pret'j word.

"Look !" said the slrunger, pointing to
a hi toriciil picture hanging on ihe wall.
' It is the mnsierpiece of one of our
inosi nncienl puinters, and represent
Christ bearing the cross," observed
"Yes, but look there," continued ihe
stranger, ciisting n melancholy look at
Agrippn, ns In- pointed to u personapej on
the Icfi side of (lut picture.
Cornelius ngairt raised his eyes, and
saw. to Ins astonishment, that which lie
had not remarked before namely, the
striking likeness that existed between tho
countenance nf tho personage depicted
and that of the strnnger,
"Why," said he, "would you hnvc me
look at the wretched infidel who dared to
strike our divine Savior, while he was
bearing his eros, in order to nrgr him to
erenter pecd, and who for this bnso aiS
lion i.s condemned to wander about the
enrth mil it the necond coming of Jesus
Christ.".' - - ' . ' '
'A Ins!" said the stranger, "that wretch
ed infidel is myself! I am the Wander

So naying, he rushed from ihe house

An Ossified .Han. ,
In a quiet little villuge on tho Western
Reserve, in Ohio, says the I'resdott Tran
script, there live a man who, physiolo
gically coiiiidcred, is certainly one of th
wonders of die world. His joinU are
completely ossified, turned lo hone, and he
ii not cajifible of making tho slightest
movement, except nlternntely opening and
(dinning two lingers, of his right hand.
His body is us rigid ns iron, and il couldn't
be bent without breaking some of his
botvs. This singular process of ossifiru
tiou hnsi been going on in his system for
tin ire than twenty years. He is now
about forty-six years old, and tins not had
the use of his limbs so that he could walk,
since he was nineteen. Ossification com
menced first in his ankle joints, gradually
rxtending itself through his system until
he was entirely helpless ; since that time
he has been wholly under his mother's
care, und si m watches over him with an
anxiety only n mother can feel. When
aImuii twenty-si years old he became, en
tirely Mind from some unknown cause,
and has remained so ever since. At
a bun! thirty he sullered greatly from
toothuihe, and finally had them all ex
tracted. A year or two nfterwards his
finger nnd toe nails came oh, and were
supplied by others errowin out troni his
fingers ond loes ai right angles and pre,
senting the appearance of horns, . What
is still more singular in regard to Id's
nails, if the end of the imil is cot ofT it
will bleed freely. Such is thn condition
of this remarkable una at ihu present
time. He ha been visiud Ly a great
number of scientific men from oil purts of
the world, but nil have failed to give any
plausible reason nf the cause of his trans
formation from flesh to bone. Singular
as it may appear, although his jaw-bone
is firmly set in his head, he not only talks
frevly, but fluently converses with hw
friends and the..' who visit him. on all or.
diuary topic of ilu day. und he show
him-elf well informed, and of goo1 mind,
lie is always cheerful, appears contented
an l happy, and it seems probable that he
will live many years to come.
