EXTRAORDINARY AFFAIR AT NEWPORT. NARROW ESCAPE FROM BEING BURIED ALIVE. The Newport Telegram publishes an extraordi- nary story, to tiie effect that a man living at Pillywenlly, who is deaf and dumb, and believed j also to be strange in his mind, had a narrow escape a few days ago of being buried alive. It appears that a short time back the poor fellow, who is well known, fell down and injured his back, and after lying in bed several days it was believed he had passed away. Rumour has it that the friends of the man ordered a coffin and made the necessary arrangements for his interment. The "deceased" was placed in a coffin a day or two preceding the intended funeral, and soon after the poor fellow, it was discovered, had "recovered to life." The general belief is that thé inanimate condition of the "deceased" was nothing more than what is now known by the terlll trance. We give the story for what it is worth, but, of course, with ali due reserve, and may add that little reliance is placed in the rumour.
