Eight children at a birth. --From a letter in the New York Tribunes we extract the following: On the 2d of August Mrs. Timothy Bradies, of Trumbull county, Ohio, gave birth to eight children--three boys and five girls. They are all living, and are healthy, but quite small. Mr. B.'s family is increasing fast — He was married six years ago to Eunice Mowery, who weighed 273 pounds on the day of her marriage. She has given birth to two pairs of twins, and now eight more, making twelve children in six years. It seems strange, but nevertheless is true. Mrs. B. was a twin of three, her mother and father both being twins, and her grandmother the mother of five pairs of twins. Mrs. B. has named her boys after noted and distinguished men; one after the Hon. J. R. Giddings, who has given her a splendid gold medal, one after the Rev. Hon. Elijah Champlain, who gave her a dead of fifty acres of land and the other after James Johnson, who gave her a cow.
