The Wheeling <‘Begister” of the 20th inst. tells the following story on the authority of Julia Messenger ofWindrWge, Green county, P». for whose veracity it vouches: A man living near Windridge, Green county, Pa., had born to him five children, four girls and one boy. His name is Daniel Lewis. When quite young the boy and second daughter, named Lucinda Lewns, de­ veloped quite a fondness for hunt­ ing, and were out nearly all the t ime, roaming the .woods in search of game. Tliey seemed to delight in nothing so much as the fall hiv of a hunter, and would be gone from home for weeks at a time. At'te some four or five years the boy quit it, and entered on the more indus­ trious pursuits of life, hut the gi continued in the cliase. Drawitig lierself more and more from human intercourse end restraiint.shehasbe- oome a wild.' woman, lleOrng from the approach of iier kind with the speed of a deer. \ Dnrin.^ lhe early yokrs of hcr sol itarvlifdsffe used.to approach >.e« fatW ’ft h'ouse^’ftud erttice |he dogs to follow' her, learning almost any breed of dOf^ to become good huii- tors. In the hope of bringing her back to her home atid to civilisation, lier brother followed her and shot the dog she had taken away, using every inducement to got to go back with him. But it was all *\ For eighteen years, since she was twelve years of ago, she has lived this wild life, sleeping in the centres of straw stacks during the night and hiding in them during the summer the wild and cultivated fruits she intends for her winter’s store of pro­ visions. She is .now thirty years ■ old, and is as wild as the most uu tamed denizen of the forest. Mr. Messenger says he at one time, while out hunting, met her m the woods. Her long black hair, covering her face and eyes,..wa8 mat­ ted with hui-8 and leaves, and - her black flasbing eyes made her a start­ ling picture. She remained per­ fectly still until he got within twen­ ty feet of her when she turned and tied with the swiftness no man could hope to rival. A few days since she was seen a gain, and then had in her hand | thrw pheasants and four rabbits,; but although these encuinberod her j glie eluded every attempt to capture her. She has been so long in the | woods that she has become iJcrfectly | wild. Her dress is made of flu skins of wild animals and a blanket tbatshehaa takcnmmcwherejnrjng^ some of her nocturnal predatory tours.
