-The Courier and Enquirer of yesterday
morning noticing the recent capture of the
puissant General Southerland, gives tlhe
following morsel of biography:
"As somd'of our readers may like to know
who this Southerland really is, we state for
their information, that if they cnn recollect

dore Elliot to the Bowery Theatre with a
body of Marines to protect that great man
fron the popular fury during the glorious
days of his exploit in refixing the Jackson

-%WFUL SITUATION.-The following a
farming advent ure happened to a gentleman
in the course of a late visit to the celebrated
cathedral ofoSt. Paul's, London. In his
investigation of the several curiosities or the
place, he arrived at the turret which con
tains the niachinerv of he clock. Here the
dial plate is accessible, and on its inside is a
small square aperture, for the convenience
of the person shiftin the hands of the clock.
Our friend being of a decidedly inquisitive
disposition, and particularly fond of thrust
ing himself into every strange and out of
the way corner, immediately popped his
head, through the inviting opening. He
was instantly absorbed in the enjoyment of
the view his elevated situation afforded
him, his position in refereuce to the hands
of the clock never costing him a thought,
when, guillotine like, down comes the pon

tie and gradual pressure on the spine soot)
gave him a hintof the predicament iu.which
To draw his head out was impossible,
nud it became an unavoiJable fixture, while
the powerful and steady motion of the ma
chinery was scarcely at all impeded. De
capitation in its most lingering and shock
ing form must have been inevitable, had
not the bell-ringer, in the exercise of his
duty, at this moment arrived. lie instant
ly perceived how matters stood, and with
tne quickness of thought stopped the nia
chinery. The bar was shoved up by means
of levers, and the terrified and astonished
man released from his/peril. It is said lie
has ever since been very shy of trusting his
headl off theperpendicular, and gives an in
volntary shudder when, in looking out of

A Belgian journal contains a curious ac
count of a giant, who, having made his for
tune by. exhibiting himse'f to the idle and
curious in various countries, has lately re:
tired to his native town, Verviers, near
Liege. Although of tritely colossal magni
tude, with thighs as large as bodies of or
diniary sized men, and a thutmb wvhich a boy
twelve years old cantnot grasp, he is sy s
tematically proportioined, anud has a head
andl countenance rivaling in beauty and
grandeur the casts of the Olympian'Jove.
lie is not devoid -if eucuatiotn, and cony erses
on most subjects with good sense. As no
room was high enough to contain him, he
has been obliged to have one made to suit,
by removing ceilings, ail thtus converting
two ctories of his house into one, heighten
ing the doors, anid making other alterationis
in proportion. His furnitture 1s tupon the
saime grand scale; tihe seat of his aurm chair
is uipon a level with an ordinary table, anid
his table. wvith a chest of drawers, and his
bed, tilling an entire room. Ihis b~oots cost
80t. a pair, his hat 60~f. lHe feeds himself
wvith a fork rivalling that with Guly's bor
ridge pot at WVarwick Castle, andl a 51)oon
wvith corresponding dimnensions. With all
these appliances, the poor man ins no en
-.joymnent of his life. If he walks by dauy he
is followed by all the boys and vagabonds
of the town; and if he ventures furth at bight,
his ears are assailed biy the screams of many
who' take himn for sorpe supernatural being.
lie can have no hope of finding any woman
who will venture to marry him, and there
fore must remain deprived of all the enjoy
ments of a domestic circle. He passes his
-time, consequently. almnost in solitude..

Dr. W hitridge's excellent address to the
last graduating class in the Medical College

Lutheran Obserrer. .
It is but too common for gentlemen ofthe
profession to think and to fiel, that in re
spect to patients, so far as their diseases are
concerned, they are not bound by the obli
gations of truth; but that it is always tie
cessary to encourage and flatter them, to
etlect their recovery or to prolong their
life. This is an erroneous opinion, anad one
that I am extremely desirous should be
corrected. I have seen patients encourag
ed, flattered and deceivedl by their friends
and physicians, until they were alsolutely
cheated out of life.-and who knows but
cheated too. out of their soul's -lvmation?
What, tell a lie to a sick mat. It is bad
enough to deceive in any case, but to tell a
lie to a sick and dying man, antd thus divert
his mind from sacred things-deprive him
of the use of precious time-time which

'3' EFFECTa or FEat.--some years
since while an American vessel of war
was stationed at Virginia, Dr. D-, an
amiable and intelligent nian, who acted as
physician and surgeon to it, used frequently
to lodge on shore, at the house of a respect
able lady, to whose only son, a child of four
or five years old, the doctor had be-:omo
strongly attached from having discovered
in him an extraordinary precocity, and an
interesting disposition. Aller some months
the vessel was again ordered to sen, and
Dr. D-, parted with his little favorite
with grean regret. More than a year bad
elapsed, when the same vessel returned to
N-, when the Dr. returned to his land
lady to see his little protege. The child
flew to his embraces, delighted to see him.
After the first caress was over. "Why,
my dear boy," said Dr. D-, parting his
head as he spoke who has been powdering
your I" "No body," replied the child.
vhose joy was changed to the most extrva
gant grief, & bursting into a passion of tears,
lie quitted the apartment: Dr. )-, sat in
a silent amnzement, for the boy's hair was
as white as the mountain suow. In a mo
ment after, the mother entered, and when
the first gratulations were over, lie inquired
the meaning of the late scene. Saying to
her. " What have you been doing to your
son's hair:" "Nothing," sobbed she, and
following the child's exaniple, she left the
room weeping. The next time he called,
she was better able to account for the mnys
ter3, and informed him that a short time
ago, she had been aroused at midnight by
the loud and piercing shrieks of her child.
aind on hastening to his bed, found him set
ting up in it, his countenunce wild with
horror, and the whole surface of his bodv
dripping cold perspiration. Ott being made
sensible oiher presence, in a confused and
incoherent manner, lie told her that he had
been visited by a frightful dream.
The next day it was discovered that his
hair was bleached as white as though lie
had lived a century. This mystery, for
such it may certainly be considered, was
not perfctly understood till about three
years simce, when by the dying confession
of a relation who was to inherit the proper
ty of the child at his decease, it was con
lessed that on !he night when the boy im
agined lie had been visited by a dream, he
had himself made an attempt to strangle
him, but was deterred from the commis
sion of the deed by the terrific screams of
