Strange Incidents.

--A young man named A. M. Tebbetts died at Lewiston, Me., two weeks since, respecting whom the Advocate says:

‘ The mother of Mr. Tebbetts died the 4th of September last, in Athens, of this State, and a sister died on the 15th, of the same month. On the 14th of October last, two other sisters of his died in Lewiston. Just before the youngest of these died, she said to her brother: "Your turn will come next, and before a great while." Mr. Tebbetts, upon hearing this, seemed to be struck by a mental paralysis, from which he never recovered, taking no farther apparent interest in anything. As he was passing up Main street, Nov. 8th, he says he met his mother, who was dead. He says that he spoke to her and she to him, telling him that he would die in three weeks. Upon this he went to his cousin's Mrs. D. M. Gilpatricks, and told her that he was going to die and wanted her to take care of him. In three weeks from that day he died of typhoid fever. He was about twenty years of age.
