Singular case of Catalepsy.

--A policeman in Toronto, on Monday last, observed a man standing upon the sidewalk, motionless and with face distorted. On being accosted he did not reply, when the policeman laid his hand upon him and found him perfectly insensible. He raised his arm, it remained outstretched; he bent his body, and it continued in the position he had placed it. The unfortunate man was immediately conveyed to his home and placed under medical care. Every sense and faculty was apparently suspended. He afterwards revived somewhat, but at last accounts was in a precarious condition.
