Case of suspended Animation.

--A singular case of restoration after apparent death occurred last week at Albany, N. Y. A little daughter of Mrs. Wilson, residing on First street, after a sudden relapse, succeeding severe illness, apparently died. The body did not stiffen, but every other symptom of death was present. The remains were prepared for the grave, when, on Wednesday night, the supposed dead child screamed, and immediately the functions of life were resumed. Heavy perspiration poured off the body in great quantities, and the pale, marble-like form assumed a healthy, red appearance. When the ‘"dead"’ child screamed, those present, except the mother, became greatly alarmed and ran out of the room. The mother rushed to the body, inclosed it in her arms and removed it to a bed in the side room. The family physician was immediately sent for, who applied proper restoratives, and the child is now in a fair way of recovering.
