A venerable jrentlemo. with a history of pe
culiar interest, is at present ojonrnin! tempora
rily at the Good Samaritan Hospital, in tin city.
He n here several week, ago. totally blind,
and eaffenre from a cataract on his left and dole
remaining eye. He was operated on lor cataract
hv one of our Cincinnati oculist, and although
the Tetieratile man has attained the uncommon
aire of ninety years and four months, the delicate
operation was perfectly successful, and the pu
tieat now hag the happiness of enjoying his sight
once more.
The old irentleman is a physician, by name, Dr.
Pari.) Creel, and is one or the early graduates of
the old University of t'ennsylriuita, at t'biludel
pliia. He is the father-in-law of Judge SnfTird,
of oar State, and is at present a resident of Cbil
licotbe. Part of Or. Creel's history is a matter of na
tional interest, from the fact that he was one of
the jurors iu the great trial of Aaron Burr for j
conspiracy against the United Slates Govern-
men I.
Father Creel is happy, cheerful, and enthusias-
Ik as a sir! of sixteen. Before the trouble with
bis eye his health was perfect better than sixty
years ago and be is yet able to walk a good fire
miles. He says that still, at his great age, be is
as desirous of tiring as be ever was, and don't
want to get out of the world a bit more than be
did when he was twenty years old. His bearing
is excellent, bis memory as good as yours or any
body's, and his mind perfectly clear. He is a man
of much learning and great intelligence, quotes
Latin at will, and knows Sbakspeare. Cicero, and
all those old fellows by heart.
Dr. Creel I: j- written much for publication in
his day, and gave the fiual shock to his eyesight
by sitting up and using bis eyes writing utnigbt.
" It's a great shame I made such a blockbead
of myself." says he.
This frisky old boy is going to the Philadelphia
Centennial this year to see the eights, and says
he really cannot see any reason why he should'ul
live ten years yet. He was asked if he pursued
any particular plan ot diet or habits by which be
kept bis health and hopefuluess in sncb a re
markable degree at this advanced age.
'- No," said he, " I have uo particular diet or
habits, except that I take plenty of exercise by
: walking, and I live on brown bread entirely.
(jOHTCSS Wun "neat is bolted, all that is good is taken
out oi II. uuu ivune oreau is uoi ui lor any Hu
man being to eat. Then I drink only block lea,
black Oolong, and not very much ot that. 1 use
very little tea or coffee either.
Like most of the very old men left among as,
Dr. Creel went through tbe war of 1612. He is
a Virginian by birth, and was surgeon to the 2d
Virginia regiment in the war of 1812. On his
way to the seat of war iu tbe North he slopped
at Cincinnati a few days, and a party was given
by Geo. Findlay. Uen. Harrison's daughter.
Elizabeth, then a blooming young lady, was ut the
parly. Dr. Creel says that Kltzabeth Hairisou
was a very beautiful woman, and tbe perfect pic
ture of her father.
Dr. Creel's recollections of the Burr trial, whom
be knew well, are, however, the most interesting
of all. Tbe Uial of Aaron Burr.it will be re
meuibereJ. look dace iu September, 1807. So
lar as our venerable friend knows, he is tbe sole

resembled Lord Aabburton. formerly English
Minister at Washington. Blennerhaasett and
bis wife were a most affectionate couple, devoted
ly and faithfully attached to each other."
" And what became of their children after tbe
failure of Burr and the rain of their home?"
" They had three sons." said the venerable doc
tor, " Harmon, Dominique, and Joseph Lewis.
Joseph was the youngest. I do not know tbe
fate of the elder sons, but a few years ago Joseph
Blennerhaasett, this youngest son. was living in
Missouri, on tbe banks of the Mississippi River,
a few mile above St. Louis. For anything I
know, he is there still. He is a farmer, if 1 am
not mistaken. The high-spirited, but broken
hearted Mrs. Blennerhaasett. died poor and lonely
in the care of some kindly Sisters of Charity in
New York, and oone but these angels of Mercy
followed her to tbe grave. It was a mournful
ending to a life like hers."
The bright old uouagenarian seemed to muse
sorrowfully for a few moments, then all at ouce
he turned the green shade over his eyes inquir
ingly upon his lonneulor.
" What church do you belong toT" said be sud
denly. Being answered, he continued thoughtfully :
" Well, it's a very uncommon thing, know,
for a man ninety years old to drop his theology
and become a free thinker : but in the last year.
I must confess, that is what bus happened to me.
I have though! and thought about it, and tbe
more I have thought the more it has seemed to
ine that dogmatic theology and dogmatic theolo
gisla are the curse of the civilised world. Dog
matic theology blocks science and progress at
every step. This great and mighty world is many
millions of years old, and tbe Ideologists say it is
only six thousand fire hundred.
" Standing upon the sunset hills and looking
backward, it seems to me that 1 should like to
leave this world to those bebiud. In tbe light of
the sunset, dogmatic theology becomes only a
blot on tbe face of true religion. One theologi
cal sect is apt to be right as auothor, aud uone
can know for certaiu whether it is ngbl or wrong.
Mao does not want to slavishly adore a relent
less tit. ! like a blind Hindoo devotee, bul he
wants to reverence, in the light of all the reason
be has. a (iod of love, purity and peace.

and looking backward, would like lo say that
Ibis is tbe lesson which ninety years of life bare
taught him." CiiiciniuUi Commen'iiil.
Obeying- Orders A RaaailltM Story.
Sunderland was a famous hound, named from
the English banker wbo presented bim to tbe
Empress of Russia, Catherine the Second. This
dog came near causing the most tragical mistake
that has occurred within the memory of finan
ciers. " Sir," said a-valet de cbambre one morning,
entering the chamber of Mr. Sunderland, a rich
English capitalist, who gave this much loved
bound to the Empress, and who iu consequence
ol the present had for three years stood high in
ber good graces " Sir, your house is surrounded
by guards, aud tbe director of the police is below
requesting to see you."
" What does he want V cried the banker,
springing from bis bed, alarmed ut tbo informa
tion. " 1 know nothing about it, sir," replied the
valet. " but it appears to me an affair ol tbe
highest importance he will communicate it to
uo one but yourself."
" Show him in." said Mr. Sunderland, hastily
throwing on a dressing gown.
The valet departed, and reappeared in a few

There is probablv no doubt that he is the ouly
one left, as he wus oue of the youoge9t of the
jurors, and be is now over oioety years old.
"The trial lasted a uioiilb," said Father Creel.
" And how did the jury stand?'' was asked.
' Unanimous for acquittal, ' said he " unani
mous. Burr's principal lawyer was Luther Mar
tiu, of Philadelphia. Luther Martin was the
finest lawyer of tlie day, but he was, unfortunate
ly, a hopeless drunkard, lie was retained in the
Burr case on conditioo that he would drink noth
ing intoxicating a long as tbe trial lasted, lie
accepted tbe condition, and agreed lo drink nolh
itir that would make him druDk till tbe case was
finished. But Luther Martin could no more keep
e i i I . -i - 1. !? i r r- mi
ming ; so though he kept his pledge by the letter,
be broke it in tbe fact. He took bread aud
soaked it in brandy, and ate it incessantly during
the whole trial, thus whipping the devil around
the stump."
" Oh ! it was a famous trial, that was worth a
life-time to hear. Luther Martiu was one of Ibd
first lawyers of tbe age, and put forth his most
powerful efforts in Burr's behalf. Chief Justice
Marshall allowed Burr to speak in his own de
fence whenever he chose, and although as I have
said. Martin was ooe of tbe most accomplished
lawyers of the age, yet Burr knocked lo pieces
in five minutes all that Martin could say. When
ever be opeued bis lips there was most perfect
silence in the Court, Aaron Burr was so graceful
and splendid in all that he did or said. Every
word mcde a most profound impression on tbe
jury. I shall never forget it never though I
live to be five buodred years old."
" Was he so eloquent t"
" No ; be was not eloquent at all, in tbe ordi
nary sense of the word. lie was Dot a bit flowery
in his language. It was just clear, precise and
simple, with no attempt whatever at ornamental '.
clap-trap, but he had a way of putting a point be-
fore s jury more clearly than any man I ever
knew, so clearly th it tbey bad to see it."
) bat was the lascination about hiio do yon
think r
" 1 think it was his manner. There was a
charm about that, that no human being could re
sist, particularly a woman. It is a fact, without
a particle of exaggeration, that when once be
fixed his fascinatiog eye upon a woman there
was no escape for ber. It may sound strange,
bnt I, baring seen and known the man as I bare,
most say that I doubt if there was ever another
as fascinating a man on earth as Aaron Burr.
Then bis intellect was far more powerful than is
generally supposed. His head did not slope back
from bis brows, like that of Henry Clay, at is
sometimes represented in his pictures, but it was
massive and full in the forehead. His brain was
magnificent ; in my opinion, equal to Jefferson's."
Was Aaron Burr to very Laoddome T"
" Not so handsome in the face ; bat, though
rather a small man, be was 4he most perfectly
formed man I ever saw. and bis manner of carry
ing himself was indescribably princely and splen- j
did.''
'-Did tbe jury which tried him really believe I
him innocent ?"
" Not one of as thought he bod any direct de- j
signs against the Government of the United
states. His ambitions and bis plans were mag- .
oificent, but tbey were not to be directed against .
this country, at least not then. As near as we '
could conscientiously get at tbe truth, we judged
tasat bis plan was about this : First, the conquest
of Mexico and tbe establishment of a government 1 rices, could reccire such an order without attempt

received the worthy director of the police with
bis usual urbanity, and invited him to take a
seat; but expressing bis thanks by a significant
movement ol bis bead, he remained standing and
in the most piteous accents be could assume, ad
dressed Mr. Suuderland.
" Sir," said be, " you must believe how very
deeply I am grieved at having been chosen by her
Majesty, my graci oas sovereign, lo accomplish
an order whose severity afflicts me. though it has !
undoubtedly been provoked by some great crime."
" By some great crime '." cried the banker ;
''who bos committed tbe crime?"
" You. sir, undoubtedly, sinco to you the pun
ishment attaches."
c:. r ... i: A aa, q . i
aud 1 swear to you that our sovereign might
search my conscience to its depths, withoot dis
covering any subject of complaint in my actions
or thoughts toward her."
" Ah, sir, your being a naturalized Russian is
what makes your situation so terrible ; if you
had remained a British subject yoa might now
have claimed tbe protection of tbe Knglish min
ister, aad thus perhaps have escaped from tbe
rigorous command, which, to my regret, I am
charged to execute."
' Will your excellency inform me what it is?"
" Oh, my dear sir, I shall never have courage
to tell you."
" Have I lost the favor of her Majesty V
"Oh .' that it were but that."
" Indeed ! does she contemplate sending me
back to Kngland ?"
" Englaud is your own country, and that pun
ishment would not be so severe lhal I should fear
to mention it,"
" Uood heavens 1 you frigh'.en me. Can she
think of banishing me to Siberia ?"
" Siberia, sir, is a delightful country that has
been calumniated ; besides you might return from
there."
"Am I condemned to a prison?"
" A prison is nothing you could escape from
prison.
" Sir, sir." cried the banker, more and more
terrified, " can I be destined to the knout ?"
" Tbe koout is a painful punishment, bnt the
knout does not destroy life."
" My Uod," cried Sunderland, struck witb dis
may. " I see that I dm to die."
" And what a death I" cried the director of
police, raisiog his eyes witb an expression of deep
" Wait ! is it not enough to kill me withoot
trio, to assassinate me without cause ? Has Cath
erine ordered yet more ?"
" Alas, yes, she bos ordered "
" Well I speak out, sir. What has she ordered ?
I am a man and bare some courage. Speak.''
" My dear sir, she has ordered If the com
mand bad not been given to myself, I never would
have believed it. How can I tell you ?"
Yoa make me die a thousand deaths I Come,
tell me, air, what is the order ?"
" Yoa are to be Bayed alive."
The poor banker altered a cry of agony then
looking the director of police in the face :
" Bat. yoar excellency,'' said he, " what you
tell me is incredible. Yoa must bare lost your
reason."
" No, sir, I have not, though I certainly shall
lose it daring tbe operation."
" Bat is it possible that yoa, who have an hun
dred limes called yourself my friend, and to whom
I have had tbe happiness of rendering some ser-
fused to the greatest criminal. Grant it, I entreat
yoo."
" I shall risk my office by it."
" I may save my life by it."
" Very well, write I I give yoo permission,
bat I matt not lose sight of yoa for an instant."
" Thank yoo do as yoa please, only send for
on of your officers to carry my letter."
The director of police called a lieutenant of
Her Majesty's guard to whom he entrusted poor
Sunderland s letter. Ten minutes afterward he
brought back an order to conduct the banker lo
the imperial palace. This was all he desired.
A carriage was at the door. Snoderiand en
tered it witb tbe lieutenant at bi side, and in
five minatrs more fonwl himself at the Hermitage,
and ia tbe presence of Catherine, who received
bim witb a burst ot laughter.
Uuable tn couj.-cture the cause of her mirth,
he threw himself at ber feet aad seisiug ber
hand :
" Mercy, madame," said he, " in the name of
heaven grant me mercy ! or at least tell mo by
what crime I hare merited such a horrible pan
isbmenl !"
" My deer Sanderiand," said Catherine. " yoa
bare nothing in tbe world to do wiih ibis."
" Indeed ! yoar Majesty, but wbo tben doee it
concern ?"
" No one bat the Jo? which yoa gave me. and
who died yesterday of indigestion. In my grief
for hit loss, and my natural desire to preserve
some memorial of bim, I sent for that stupid Ut
liew. and said lo him :
" Let Sunderland's skin be instantly stripped
off"
" When he hesitated, I supposed be despised
the commission, and becoming angry, I sent him
away, without farther explanation."
"Ah 1 madams," replied tbe banker. " yoa may
boast of a faithful servant in your director of po
lice, bul in future 1 entreat you to explain more
fully tbe orders which yoa give him, lor be will
sorely execute them to the letter." And in fact,
if bis compassion bad not iu this instunco yielded
to the banker's pmyers, poor Suoderluud would
have been flayed alive.

At the time of her acquaintance with Burr she
most have been as much as 45 years old. Bleo
Derbsssctt was very wealthy then, and Burr won
over Mrs. Blennerhasaett to his cause ; she won
over her husband, and so Burr got Blennerhas
sett's money. Mrs. Blencerhasselt was a re
markable woman. I remember sbe osed fre
quently to walk from home to Marietta, twelve
miles before breakfast, in tbe morning, and take
breakfast in Marietta. Blennerhaasett himself
was very English in appearance. He strongly
have dared to do. I besought ber Majesty to re
nnqaisn ine project, or at least lo charge some
one else witb the execution of it, and I persisted
in tbe entreaty till she grew angry and answered
me in that tone which yoa mast bave beard and
that admits of no reply.
" Go, sir ! remember it is yoar dnty to perform
without murmuring any commission with which
I deign to intrust yoa."

" Then," said the director of police, " I went in
search of a very skillful naturalist, wbo staff
birds for tbe Academy of Sciences ; because,
since the thing mast be done, I wished it to be
performed in the best possible manner."
" And did the wretch consent to do it ?"
" He referred me lo bis colleague, wbo skins
and prepares the monkeys, because of tbe great
resemblance between the human and the monkey
races."
"Wen, sir T

Do not always use the same eye in looking
through the microscope, but nse the eyes alter
nately. There is always a temptation to employ
h Hiaa py which thus receives a kind of traio
ing in vision ; Dot u suouiu ou lesisiuu. vvuu
some persons tbe right eye is most in favor, and
wiih others the left ; and when the favored one
gels all the work it too frequently suffers.
Whether yoa look with' the right or left, keep
both eyes open.
Il is pitiful sight to see a human face all screw
ed op into a corner, the lids of the uuusad eye
convulsively sqneexed together, and tbe mouth
slaniiog upwards us if in sympathy witb the eye.
Not only does the human face become repulsive
ly mean and ugly by such action, but ihe sight of
the eye ia seriously strained and sometimes im
paired for life. At first the beginner will find
some little difficulty in restricting his vision to
one eye while the other remains open ; but a
little practice and plenty of perseverance will
soon overcome all difficulties. The vision ac
commodates itself to circumstances with wonder
ful ease, and the observer soon learns lbs curious
art of catting off all communication between tbe
unused eye and the brain. I bave ulways found
it a good plan to get as much light on an object
as possible. A piece of while paper is a great
assistant, to be placed nnder tbe object, and be
careful that tbe hat or bonnet does not iolerfere
to shade it.
