It hat been eaid by one of the reviews that
the dying often dream of their habitual oacu
petloni, and oonstruot an imaginary present
from the put. Dr. Armstrong departed de
livering medio! preoepti. Napoleon fonght
one battle over again, and the teat wordi he
muttered, were, "Ttlt d'armn." lord Ten
terdan, who passed straight from the judg
ment seat to his death-bed, fancied himself
still presiding at at trial, and expired, saying,
Gentlemen of the Jury, yon will now consider
jour verdict." Dr. Adams, the author of the
JfosMeAaWovMw, Imagined himself inaohool
distributing praiae and oenBure among hit
pupils. "But It grows dark," he said, "the
boys may dismiss;" and Instantly died. "Vy
friends," said Vontenelle, a short time before
he died, "I haTe no pain, only a little diffi
culty in keeping up life." Others evinoe their
Individual character. Washington said, "Ii,
la well." The elder Adams whispered, "In
dependence forever;" the younger Adams, "Ii
is'the last of earth." Jefferson, "I resign mj
eoul to God, and my daughter to my country."
Harrison, "I wish you to understand the true
principles of government; I wish them car
ried out; I aak nothing more." Webster, ' I
still lire." Taylor, "I have endeavored to
do my duty." franklin, "A dying man can
do nothing easy." John Randolph, "Re
morse." Byron, "I must Bleep now." Law.
renoe, "Dont give up the ship." Grotios,
"Be serious." Burns, "Don't let that
awkward equad Are over my grave." Sir
Walter Scott, "I feel as if I were to be myseli
again." .: Neander, "Bister, I am weary, lei
us go home.'' Sir Thomas Moore, (asceod
ing the scaffold,) "I pray you, see me safe up,
aid for my coming down, let me shift for my

"I am always ready; don't detain me long."

THE WATCHING WESLEYANS.
Saturday night the Methodist Churches all
over the world were open, to watch the old year
out and the new one in to watch and pray at
the death and the birth. ' All of na welcome the
coming and speed the parting guest. Good

midnight strange mystic hour as Mi s. Stowe
termed it, when the veil between the frail
pieient and the eternal future grows thin, the
worshipers were on their knees in silent prayer.
THE FIRST SABBATH OF 1860.
to
weekly winding up required by the human
msohlne. Blessed and hallowed is the Sab
bath day. Bat when the year's halt comes,
we should on this jubilee week, while walk
ing In the orypts of life, in the language ol
Longfellow, hear the organ and the chanting
of the choir in the great Cathedral above up
and fear not to mount through the open dooi
from which we see the light stream when
some friend goes up before us, by the narroe
staircase of the grave that leads us out of thi
uncertain twilight into the serene mansions o(
the life eternal.
THE YOUNG AND THE OLD.
Now that we have passed the conjunction ol
two epoohs, the end and the beginning of thi
year, let us be reminded of and derive in
struction from a reflection of Coleridge: "1
have often thought what a melancholy world
this would be without children, and what sn
inhuman world without the aged."
The Penny Press for the New Year.
We remind business men and houe keep re
of their opportunity to embark with the New
Tear 2s new engagements of support and to
eonragemCitt of the Phut Paisa. Our a in
has been and is, to furnish at a trifling expente
to the friends of the paper,' though at heavy
expenditures and constant anxieties of the
conductors, a proper paper for the household;
to unite the Intellectual and the useful; to he
the type of the community in which it clroi
lates; to tell Its character as well as Its condi
tion iu tastes as well as its necessities; to Ic
the map whereon are traoed out tendenoiri
and destinies; the chart to direct the traveli t
and the settler to safe and pleasant harborage,
or to divert them from the shoala and quick,
sands of social degradation. It designs to In
euloate for your homes, and at yourfire-sidt
sentiments of propriety, and not in tones ol
contamination ; to indicate your prosperity
in your business features, and be the chronicler
of your advancement. We look for a very
Urge subscription list and a liberal advertising
patronage. .
"To-day Ethan Must go to Work Again!"
We say to those whose fortunes have been
washed away from them, to do as Xthan Stone,
an old pioneer citiaen of Cincinnati, did. Be
had made a oontract with the Commissioner
of Hamilton County to build a bridge ovir
Mlllcreek.'. The contract required that the
bridge should stand a certain length of time
before the Commissioners would receive it, in
order to test, Its strength. The bridge, which
eoat quite a large sum of money, daring a
iood was floated from its place and bone
down the Ohio river. Next day Mr. Stone
wrote to his brother, in New Hampshire,
'Last night the wind and flood carried away
atl my fortune. To-day, I than must go to
workageur" ti-"
So, discouraged business men; do ye. .Let
act adversity disarm your energy; but build
a aew bridge over the millcreek of your mis
fortune. ; Stert with a new year, (with new
The Exiles from Madison County, Ky.
, Fear having taken possession of the minds
of slaveholders In and about Madlsoh County,
Ky., that the colony of anti-slavery school
teachers and mtnisters clustered there a nu
cleus started by an anti-slavery Kentnokian
Rev. Jhn G. Fee the whole party, con
sisting of twelve men, eight of them with
families the whole amounting to thtrty-stx
in number, tnoluding the grey-headed and the
infant at the breast were caused to leave
their settlement at Berea, near Riohmond, the
county seat, and the party came to this oity
on Friday night. This inseotrlty was caused
by the apprehensions really entertained, that
another John Brown raid might ensue frcm
the party who were preaching and teachirg
sohool in the heart of Madison. . This eounly
Is situated iu the middle portion of the State,
and lies on the Waters of Kentucky River,
which skirts it on the north and west
bounded on the north ty Fayette and Clark,
east by Eitell, south by Laurel and Rock
oastle, Garrard and Jessamine. Madison, is
one of the largest counties In the State.
Richmond Is the county seat, and Is about
fifty miles from Frankfort It was at Boones
borough, in this county, that Daniel Boone,
the pioneer, built the first fort ever erected In
Kentnoky, and made the first permanent set
tlement of the State in 1775.
Two of the exiled teachers and preachers
were offered an opportunity, and last night
occupied Mr. Conway's pulpit in this city.
A Rev. Mr. Boughton, formerly of Oberlln
Theological Sohool, related succinctly the
origin and hlsto of the settlement, and the
temper and need of the neighborhood. His
words were kindly as to thoso whose fears and
feelings of Insecurity caused their expulsion.
No upbraiding or complaint was made at what
had been done; he, as did a Mr. Reed who
spoke, expressed a hope that as the good of
Kentuokians was their only aim, that as they
were opposed to the use of arms or force, and
in favor only of love, and of doing good, by
schools, by instruction in the bible, and by a
good example in the mechanic arts, that they
might be permitted to return. "
They were bold to say that the result of their
remaining in Kentucky would be to aid, as
rapidly as possible, the amelioration and final
abolition of slavery, but not by force; their
absenoe, they think, is ten tines as eOcacious
preaching as their presence. The sohool that
is olosed, the church that is ' unoceopled, the
tin of love broken, the ehlldren weeping be
cause they have lost their sohoolmaster, are
olamorous testimonials that their, return is
needed. They declared that their expulsion
was not from causes of hot heads, but after
the most protracted and earnest reflection of
legislators and other men of charaoter. The
good men of Kentuoky had given their judg
ment that they shonld leave and they bowed
to the providential interposition Which would
result in awakening Northern men to a work
of Christian duty, and Kentucky and the South
to a realization of their true situation.

Saint Toodles' Day.
The demoralised Influence of the modernly
conducted custom of receiving an army of
tillers on New Year's Day must come to an
end, or we will become a race of Toodles.
This Is St. Toodles Day. We beg of sensible
people to dethrone the Idol, and receive visit
ors without making both parties inebriates.
American men and women observe the golden
mean Temperanoe. We honor the ladies who
break through the custom in their practice to
day, by repudiating the demijohn contain leg
strong liquor.
We do not counsel the giving of a cold re
ception, by spreading a repast outside the
front door, but let the cheer be warm the re
freshment be a beverage one that does not
Inebriate. . , '
Two Paasoss Bobst to Diith. The clothes

A Maxdai.4 Mabia Hsaoisxa Bauds.
The hand of the heroine of a novel is always
mall. ' Whatever' the size of the lady; 'she
must have a tiny hand. ThIs the novelist
gives her by prescriptive right, and as a nec
essary mark of beauty. We suppose thsy go
upon the same principle that the Chinese do
In relation to a lady's foot And yet our
Christiana ridicule the Pagan taste of the gen
try of the Oelestian Empire.
Bat why should a small hand be accounted
a characteristic of beantyT If we rightly un
derstand the matter, a hand, or foot, or nose,
in order to look well, should be in doe pro
portion to the rest of the body. It is not the
smallness of the limb that makes it beautiful,
but the Jott relations It bears to the other
parts. A small hand,, therefore, unless it be
upon a small person, Is an absolute deformity;
and the novelists, while they think themselves
beautifying their heroines by giving them
tiny hands, are making them absolute frights.
They ore for the most port, tall and person
able ladles as one would meet with on a sum
mer's day; but they have the most contempti
ble little hands with which any poor creature
was ever disfigured, r i .
Death or .a. Tbksxablb Niqxbss. On
Wednesday a remarkable colored woman
named Mary Johnson, disd at her residence,
corner of Emory and Columbia-streets. Her
age wee reckoned at one hundred and three
years, as she was born in the year 1738, when
George Washington was a young man twenty
four years old, snd long before solence had
dreamed of patting to work her powerful
agenoles for steam and telegraph. The most
remarkable feature of her life Is, that she never
was a servant of General Washington. .

in plaoe. easily and readily adjusts its parts, and per
forms with it all ordinary work. .She oan make aer
