PREVENTION OF PREMATURE RESURRECTION. The following curious plan was devised at the time of the resurrection men for preventing the stealing of dead bodies: As soon as the corpse is deposited, let a truss of long wheaten straw be opened and distributed in the grave in layers, as equally as may be. with every layer of earth, till the whole is filled up. By this method the corpse will be effectually secured, as may be found by experience; for it is certain that the longest night will not afford time sufficient to empty the grave, although all the common implements of grave-digging be made use of for the abomi- nable purpose."
