Sicgalar Physiological Fact.
"A not uncomraou sense," ob
serves Dr. James Copeland, "ef de
pressed vital power is the young
sleeping with the aged. This .fact,
howeyer explained, has been long re
marked, and is well known to every
unprejudiced observer. v J have- on
several occasions met with the coun
terpart of the following case: I. was
n few years ago consulted about 'a
poor, sickly and thin boy, of about
four or five years of -age. lie ap
peared to have no specific ailmeut.
I but there was a slow and remarkable
decline oC flesh and. strength, and of
the eaorirv of tho functions what
bis mother very aptly termed a grad
ual blight. After inquiry into the
historv of the'ease. it came out that !
he had been a very robust an4 plo-
tnonc cmid up to uis trr.rd - year,
when his graudmother,'a ' very r.ged
person, took him to deep with her;
that he soon afterwards lost his good
looks; aud that he continued to de
cliue progressively, ever since, r.ot
Tithstandinir medical treatment. I
directed him to ' sleep apaTt from the
aged patent, and prescribed' gentle
tonics, cliabge of air, &c. The re
covery was rapid. Young females
married.to vc-y olil men, suffer iu a
similar manner, although Eeldom to
so great an extent; and instances
have come to my knowledge where
thev.have suspected the cause of a
debilitated state. . These facts are
often well known to the aged them
selves, who consider, tho indulgence
favorable to .longevity, and I thereby
illustrate the selfishness which i' in
some persons increase wtin meir
years. Jvery medical practitioner
is well awar'a of the fact, and parents
aro generally -ad vised not' to allow

A good story is told by a Boston
paper of a transient' customer who
run iu debt fifty ceot3 to a proyis
ioa 3oaler, and then offset his claim
by producing a bill against his credi
tor for a pair cf gloves, valued at
fifty cents, which wa3 made twenty
iwo gejrs vqo in I he town of Cavendisn,
Vermont, when) J)oth parties then
resided. This bill " of course was
worth. nothing at this time, but the
provision dealer . concluded that if
the other had had the fifty cents on
his laind for twonty-two years, it was
timo the load was removed, and he
allowed tbd claim and squared ac
counts. . -
Tnnowixo . off all . Disguise.
Know nothingism in the northern
States is throwing off all disguise
and. boldly avowing its Abolition pa
rentage. A despatch from Ports
mouth, New Hampshire, says:
'. "The -New Hampshire American

' At the North th? Democracy aro
constantly assailed by th a opposition
press, as advocates of slavery exten
sion and slavery propagandists. The
Boston Post thus-briefly d';fies the
position of the' Democracy in the free
Stntes-r-ustthe- position required by
an honest adherence to the principles
ot common justice, and to the ctate
Rights doctrines of the Government
under which we live: - - ' ".
; .We repeat,- for the BitiiCiction of
the New York Day Book and Boston
Courier, that 'it is a libel on the
Northern Democracy to say that they
are in favor of slavery extension in
other words.tbat the extension of slave
ry is one of the articles of their party
creed. Th? crround the Democracy :
here maintain is that every State and
Territory hss a right to decide tnat
question tor itselt under ;-tte consti
tution of the United States; in short,
the Democracy claim, as a national
party, that all territorial communities
be allowed to form their constitution
as they please about slavery, unawed
by influences beyond their geograph
ical boun dries; and while pursuing this
course, the ' democracy are pledged,
by their principles, to- sustain them,
whether they decide to establish or
prohibit slavery. : ' -

"Well, Sir, I perceive from tho
prints, Sir (rem the prints.Sirthat
you have been nominated for the
Presidencv?" . '
To which the Cjlonel meekly' and
and blandly responded:
-Soms too partial frionds, Sir, have
taken that liberty with my nama, no
doubt or? your account, thinking that
my connection with you would ren
der me acceptable to the American
"Yes, sir!" thundered Old ; Bullion;
no doubt of it, Sir, no' doubt of it!

I am opposed to the nomination, they
will drop you like a hot ' potato, Sir, ,
like a hot po-ta-to, Sir!" -

The origin of the soldiers of the
Temple may be clearly traced to the
wild enthusiasm' of" the Crusaders.
On the capture of; Jerusalem by the
Christians, thousands, not of well ap
pointed warriors, but of old men, wo
men, and even children, set forth to
wards tho Holy City from the most
distant part of Europe, unconscious
alike of the distance and the dangers
they should bave to encouuter. To
alleviate the dangers to which the pi
ous enthusiasts were exposed, to
guard the honor of the saintly virgins
and matrons, and to protect the gray
h.-iirs nf thft vfinorable rmlmer. nine
noble Knights formed a holy broth-
erhood in arms, aud entered into !Jay inturmea uiciq iua esieoaiiu

pilgrini3 through the passes and de
files of the mountains to the Holy
City. Wuimed with the religious
and military fervor of tho day, and
animated by the sacredoess of the
cause t which tbey had devoted
their swords, they called themselves
the poor fellow solditrs of Jcsu3
Christ. .This cbivalrio vow theysub--
sequently ratified in the Church of
the Resurrection at Jerusalem, and
there they pronounced the addition
al and monkish vots of. chastity,
obedience, and poverty. In 131S,
Baldwin, the second king of Jerusa
lem, granted them their first posses
sion -a dwelling within the sacred
inclosure of the temple on Mount Mo-
riahfc which the ignorant ecclesiastics
had designated as tne temple oi ooi

Getting the Satk.
tcTo get the Rick," R3 etefy one
knows or should know, - signifies to
be dismissed, and , is an extended
eynonyme of the phrase 'to get the
tnittttn ' Leinc: tttuivalent to the
French cant term of degomme, "un
fastened" or turned off - The origin
of the expression may, perhaps, be
traced to tho following tale'as told
by Mons. do St. Foix: . . .. :
Two gentlemen, one a Spaniard
and the other a Germnn, who were
recommended by their birth and
services to the Emperor Maximilian,
II., both coveted his daughter, the
fair Helena Scharfcquinn, in marriage.
This prmco after a long delay, one
bestow a preference, Le should leave
it to the force and address of the
claimants to decide the question.
He did not "mean, however, to risk
the life of cither, and consequently
would, not ( permit weapons to be
used, but had ordered a large bag to
be produced. It was his decree that
which ever succeeded in putting his
rival into this bag should obtain the
hand of 4i is daughter. This singular
encounter between the two . gentle
men consequently .took - place, and
before the whole court. - The contest
lasted for more thau at hour, when
the Spaniard yielded and the Ger
man, Eberhard von Talbert, having
"planted his rival in the bag, took it
upon his .back and very gallantly
laid it at the feet of hi3 mistress,
whom he espoused the next day."

and sometimes contempt, with which
they regard revealed religion. Ac
