Bellaire Independent.
     The most remarkable birth ever known in the history of accouchments occurred never Salesville, Guernsey County, on last Monday night.  Mrs. McCormick gave birth to five healthy children, four of whom were boys and one girl.  The medical works give but few instances of such wonderful births, and when they do occur the children have scarcely been known to live.  In this case the mother and children are, in the common language on such occasions, "doing well."  The community down there is excited and the famous father is the hero of all the country around about and his fame will spread on the wings of the newspapers from one end of the country to the other.  His home is already an object of pilgrimage for all the old women of the region.
     Two births each of four children, have occurred within the last fifteen years, near this region, but this outdoes all the recorded occurrences perhaps in the United States.
