ALL Persons indebted to the estate <if John Patridge, late of Jefferson county dec’ll, are requested to make immediate payment,and those having demands against said estate, are re quested to render them in agreeable to law. James T. Wudson admV. 37 Gw Extraordinary Character. —There is at present living at a place called Glcnaire, six miles from lnversrv, a person of the name ot John Mon ro, at the advanced age of 95, who makes a point of walking daily, for the sake oi vecuation, the six miles betwixt his residence and Inverarv, or to the top ot Tuhich Hill, which, is very steep, and distant about two miles. Should the rail’ pour in tor rents, so much the better, and with the greatest pleasure does he per ambulate the summit of the hill for hours in the midst >f the storm. Whether it be natural to this man, or whether it he the effect of habit, cannot be said ; but it is well known., he cannot endure ‘o remain am’ length of time with his body in <i dry state.—During summer, and. when the weather is tlrv, he regu larly pays a ilailv visit to the ruerr Area, and plunges himself headlong in with his clothes on, and should they get perfectly dry earlv in ta dav, so irksome and disagreeable does his situation become, that, tike a fish out of water, he finds it ne cessary to repeat the luxury, tie delights in rainy weather, and who ;i the “ skv lowers, and the clouds threaten,” and other men seek the “ bicld or ingle side,” then is the time that this “ man of habits,” chooses for enjoying bis natural element in the highest perfection. He never bends his way homewards til! he is completely drenched ; and on these occasions, that a drop mav not be lost, his bonnet is carried m his hand, and his head left bare to the paltering of the wind and rain. He at present enjoys excellent health; and, notwithstanding hui habits, he has been wonderfully fortunate in escaping colds, a com plaint very common in this moist climate; but when lie is (attacked, whether in wet or drv’ weather, whether in spring or winter, his inode ot cure is not more singular than specific. Instead of confining Himself and indulging in the ardent sweating potions so highly extolled amongst the gossips of his country, he repairs to his favorite element, the pure stream of the Area, and. takes one of his usual headlong dips with his clothes on. He then walks about for a few miles till they be come dry, when the plan pursued never fails to check the progress of the disorder. In other respects the writer has never heard anv thin# singular regarding his manners ot habits. Stirling Journal, United Slates’ JWint— -The mint of the F.
