Great giant of the world Miles weeks ago we gave a few facts in regard to Tab Eig fit and dimensions of this extra Ord Mary Man and promised Wiir readers through the Courtesy of a Friend in Henderson county further items of interest. The Friend we referred to was Rev. John Brooks whose veracity we believe has never been questioned by any one. He writes As follows or. Darden was Horn in North Carolina in the year 1708, and departed this life at Bis residence in Henderson music in the Kitchen. We have frequently heard Many curious anecdotes of servant girls giving themselves airs when they went to in j Gage themselves but the following May i be relied on As a fact a lady who kept a Seminary in a neighbouring town was in want of a housemaid she advertised and Many called to offer their services. The lady was pleased with the appearance of one and entered into an agreement with her requesting her to come to her place without delay. The girl seemed As if she had some thing on her mind and after a grand Effort she said that she would require. Logo out twice a week for the first month. A ooh a said the lady a you attend some particular Chapel i conclude a a no May am a simmered the girl a but l am learning the guitar and have paid for a quarters instruction in Advance so i should not like to lose any a where do you intend to practise a said the lady. A in the Kitchen 1 suppose a answered Molly Hopkins. A ooh i shall grow distracted a said the lady a what with the Young ladies thumping up stairs thrumming below a you wont suit me. Good Day to a victim of the divorce the trial of the a Talbot divorce Case a in the English House of lords created much sensation two or three years since. Mrs. Talbot was the Mother of children a lady of refinement and unassuming manners and Domestic habits. It was alleged that during the absence of her husband she had indulged in illicit Intercourse with an ignorant Groom of the stable. Two or three servants swore to knowledge of her guilt but the principal witness against her was the family Clergyman Rev. Or. Sargen. He testified we believed to have caught her in the of adultery. The woman was insane it the time of the trial and the Clergyman expressed the belief that when she committed the she was in the incipient stages of insanity. Much sympathy was Felt for the a unfortunate husband a and though Many believed the lady to be a victim of conspiracy the High character of the Clergyman carried the Bill for divorce. Recently he has delivered himself up to the authorities acknowledging that he perjured himself. In he meantime the vie Lim of the conspiracy has we Are not perfectly assured what became of lie husband but believe that he married soon after obtaining he divorce. Thomas Dick the eminent scotch author and Eugene so be the celebrated a French a Novelie Are both dead. Up he joined the Baptist Church in Early life and shortly after emigrated to Tennessee where he connected himself with what is called the Christian Church but had not been a member of any Church for years past but was moral and fond of conversing on religious subjects. He was an obliging and kind neighbor and fond of company. About fifteen years ago he joined the order of masons. He Ivas twice married. His children Are very Large but probably none of them will Ever be More than half the weight of the father. He was quite Active and Lively and Laboured until about four years ago when he became so Fleshy that he was compelled to stay at Home or be hauled about in a two horse Wagon. In 1819, he made a contract with a tailor to furnish him a suit of clothes for $50-�?the cloth was to Cost five dollars per Yard. Upon measurement it look twelve Yards of cloth. So the tailor lost ten dollars and the the tailor states that three men each weighing Over 200 pounds put the coat on buttoned it around them and walked across the Square at Lexington. In 1850, it took 13� Yards of flax cloth a Yard wide to make him a coat. It took sixteen Yards of Cambric for his shroud 24 Yards of Black velvet to cover the sides and lid of the coffin 125 feet of Plank to make his coffin. His Collie was s feet Long. Across the breast 32 inches a a head j8 Quot a a foot a 14 a a its depth 35 a who weighed la 1s45, 871 pounds. His height was 7 feet 6 inches. His weight when he died As nearly As could to ascertained was a fraction Over 1000 pounds. Extraordinary Freak of a a Young Man in Mercer county pa., named Davis has for some Lime manifested symptoms of insanity. The Pittsburgh dispatch says he imagines himself to be a second Dan Rice engaged in getting up a circus. On the 8th inst., lie caught a Snake which he took to Belles school. House in the neighbourhood where he says he had a grand performance after getting through which he swept the House and broke All the windows with a Broomstick. He then proceeded to the residence of or William Curry a mile or two from town in the absence of the family and destroyed nearly everything in the House. He says he went there a to have some fun broke a gun with the barrel of which he Smas lied the crockery dishes glassware and windows took to pieces a clock and two watches grinding up the works in a cider press. It then struck him that the ground where the House stood would be an admirable location for a circus whereupon he built a fire on the floor and it was soon in flames from which he narrowly escaped by jumping from a window cutting his arms and hands in getting out and leaving a Broadcloth coat which the heat induced him to throw off a prey to the flames. Considering the bees appropriate performers in his new circus he upset several hives and undertook to put Sleigh Bells on the insects in which a a performance he was very badly stung. When the neighbors came running to the fire they found him under a Shade tree congratulating himself that this was the a Best performance be had yet it brought the largest audience a the a House was entirely destroyed and the poor Lunatic secured and taken to Mercer jail.

There is an old Farmer in Franklin county who has a Supply of the essence of a old Bourbon a the Fame of which has. Extended throughout that its Quality is unapproachable. It is double distilled was made seventeen years ago Bas teen in Possession of its present owner during All that time and is a pure and genuine article the like of which cannot now be easily procured. The owner. Keeps it for his own Especial use and that of his friends and although he a dealer no Price -6s6w Art it with a gallon of it in the fray of Trade. During the recent Congressi fial canvass in the Ashland District Roger w. Hanson Esq., the know nothing candidate visited the House of the Farmer alluded to. He regarded his election As certain and having heard of and lasted the whiskey aforesaid an inordinate desire seized Possession of his breast to secure a few Gallons to take with him to Washington this Winter. He made known his wishes and offered any Price for ten Gallons. The Farmer positively refused to sell. After much solicitation however he was induced to agree to let his Friend have ten Gallons. Or. Hanson was delighted at being Able to secure even this Small Supply of the nectar and he forthwith paid the Bill leaving the precious article in charge of the Farmer until he called for it on the 1st of december when on his Way to take his seat in Congress at Washington. A few weeks after this occurrence Hon. James b. Clay the democratic candidate chanced to Call at this same House. He too had Beard of and tasted the famous whiskey and he also took the notion to secure a Supply if possible to take with him to Washington. He made application for it accordingly and was told in reply that or. Hanson had already made a Purchase for that purpose and it was not possible for them both to go to Congress. Or. Clay assured his k. N. Friend that or. Hanson had certainly Mude a mistake and that it was himself who would be he told him there was no doubt of that fact and urged his cause with such effect that the Farmer consented to part with another three Gallons. Of course the result determined that it is to go to Washington. ,.we have not yet heard what disposition or. Hanson intends to make of his Purchase but will report when advised. But Hanson is not the Only gentleman whose sanguine anticipations were not realized. So entirely confident was or. A. K. Marshall of his election to the Senate that taking time by the Forelock some weeks before the election As we Are reliably informed he engaged rooms at the a Capitol hotel a a Frankfort during the session of the next legislature. But the a a cruel Porter spoiled All his Fine calculations. Indeed the Case is so aggravated that we doubt not an action against him by the proprietor of the a a Capitol would hold Good in any court singularly deliberate in Adams county miss., a few weeks since. Or. Duncan Skinner overseer for a mrs. Sharpe was found murdered in a mysterious manner. Last week three negroes were arrested and proved to be the murderers. According to the testimony this was one of the most coolly planned and deliberate murders Ever committed. The Natchez courier says a a the negroes in the plot went to or. Skinner s House just before Day and aroused him on pretence of a child in the family being sick. He opened the door while in itis night clothes and was knocked Down by a blow on his breast from a heavy stick. Three Stalwart negroes seized him and after a severe struggle succeeded in choking him. While thus insensible they carried him a few rods from the House and there by main strength dislocated his neck. They then got out his clothes dressed him Quot and to turn away suspicion put his watch around his neck and , with part of his Money in his pocket brought out his horse and Saddle put the lifeless body on it and Lead it into the a Woods where the body was found. Here after running the horse up and Down they took off the body dropped the Saddle and set the animal Loose. The latter returned Home a few hours after. The body of their victim they placed in such a would indicate the probability of accidental death then brought out his gun Cap whip and game bag discharged one barrel and placed several articles in the tracks As if of a runaway horse.
