iir. Mitchell has commenced a series of
lectures on tbe prophecies, fulfilled ami un
filled, of t he Bible. His first lecture last
Sunday night, was on Neb ljc iadnez.r'a
dream, a prophecy or Daniel, fulfilled. The
eloquent preacher commenced by comment
ing on tbe importance given to dreams, ln
all apces and by all peoples. That the mind
of mau passes fully one-third of Its time ln
that condition when It receives and believes
the greateft absurdities, shows upon what
a frail tenure man has his existence. Tbe
four great cations spoken or by Daniel the
propuel, w-re, without doubt, the Babylo
nish, the Modo-Persian of Cyrus the Great,
about oou years B. C, the Macedonian of Al
exander the Ureal,, about XM B. C, and the
Roman. Time and aain, efTorts had been
made by ambitious men lo form other uni
versal empires, but they all failed. Charle
magne tried it and failed; and Napoleon,
tbe greatest genius of them all, conquered
old dvuaxtiea and kingdoms, only to se
them slip from his grasp. Never again
would there be a universal empire, uoq
had decreed it, ami had declared It through
bis prophet. These lectures oi i ir. mucneii
nromlM to be A very attractive feature.

discharge of this duty I have to chronicle
thedeathofan esteemed friend and neigh

Hth, lhoA aud after five or six months of
painful illness, crossed over the river ou
the 2Ulh iusU, having reached the ripe old
age of 7tJ years, less one month and eigh
teen days. .Almost tbe whole of bis long
life was spent within a few hundred yards
where he is now "sleeping the sleep which
knows no waking." Twas wlthiu seventy
live yards of that spot bis father, one of tbe
early emigrants, located. Col. Holt was
one of twelve children, brothers aud sisters,
of highly respectable parentage, all ot
whom, save one, have goue lo their final
resting place. He wasa man of no meau
capacity: had a vigorous and powerful in
tellect though uncultivated, and blessed
with a good physique, he was hilarious aud
mirthful, lun-loviug aud sportive, auu oue

gained place, distinction and perhaps re-
tiovvu. Although a non-protessor 01 the
Christian religion, he had iuiplsute-l with
in him many of tbe nohlest attributes of
our nature, and beyoud doubt was emi
nently au honest, -kind-hearted, clever,
good man. No trivial circumstance ever
deterred blm from tbe faithful discharge of
what he considered to be bis duty.

D.) was loving tbe same lady. He thought
by this act the young lady would turn the
back of her band to tbe Dr. forever, but uot
so ; we bave heard of them being together
since, and on very irionuiy terms, sne
thinks A. K. D., had better remain on tbe
hill that produces berries so well, having
heard of tne weekly puny vine on that hill
that produced seventeen fine berries, bnt
she will not sny delicious, having never
tried them. They were not raspberries,
blackberries, gooseberries, nor cranberries,
bnt Derry-berries. She also heard that ho Is
teaching, or at least making an effort to
teach the cedar-ites. we guess nis educa
tion Is sufficient to teach mem. The young
lady seems to think that Instead ot Santo
nine he will have his pockets lull or Cedar
berries next time he comes telling her the
Dr. sent them, as he 1s teaching near the
Dr.'s house. So she thinks be had better
remain on that tbilving hill, or in tbe ce
dars. for she has heard or cedar-berries, and
knows tbey are more dangerous than San
tonine. I Lave written the truth as I have
been enlightened by those who now. Now,
A. K. D., this will make you a little sick
when you read it, more so than the Sauto
nine did tbe ladv; for you had to eat so
much of the candy to keep down suspicion,
that it had better effect on you than her.
And we would refer Mr. Mitchell, "Miner
va's Bird," and all others wbo are In need
of Santoniue. to A. K. D.. as he kuows
where the purest and best is to be found.
The reason wny 1 iiiiuk it wiu maae you so
sick, yon bave toldnumbsrs of others, be
sides telling me, tbat you and this youug
lady were to bo married ln a short time.
