Af ter shaving in the morning, his lef t hand suddenly dropped powerless to his side and lost both sensation and power of loft side of the face, and affected the muscles connected with the voice and power of swallowing. Under suitable treatment at the hands of hig valued friend and physician, Prof. James P. White, he improved considerably, and motion was partially restored in the paralyzed parts. The voice resumed its naturalness, and the patiënt seemed in a favorablo state of conyalesenco. On Thursday last - he experienced a return of the climculty, The next dy, Friday, by invitation of Dr. White, Dr. Gray of Utica, visited him, together with the first named gentleman. On Saturday and Sunday he became more lethargie, and an extensión of the paralysis took place toward the lower extremiites. Yesterday ho was unable to rise or walk about as after the first attack. Proper medicines were freely given during theday.and he passed a tolerably comfortable night. Quite early this morning he was visited by Dr. White, and found to be less comatose and, on the whole, in an improved condition.
