After Jesus went from the stag< of action, the apostles followed tlie cx ample of their master. For instance John, the beloved disciple, writes iu hit second Epistle, 44 To the elat tody am her children whom 1 love in the Lord.1 Again, he says, " having mauy things t< write unto you or communicate, I iconic not write with paper and ink, but I trusi to come unto you. and speak face to face that our joy may be full." Again, 44Tht children of thy elect sister greet thcr.y This ancient philosopher says they wen both John's wives. Paul says, 44 mint answer to them that do examine me if this: Have we not power to lead about < sifter, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord and Cephas ' He, according to Cephas had a numerous train of wives. The grand reason of the burst of pub lic sentiment in anathemas upon Christ and his disciples, causing his crucifixion, was evidently ba..ed upon polygamy, ac cording to the testimony of the philoso phers who rose in that age. A belief in the doctrine of a plurality of wives caused the persecutions of Jesus and his follow ers. We might ahnost think they were Mormons. * * You need not wonder that we raise stout boys in the mountains, for we want children of the right build: we do not want a scrubby breed here. Men of Mor mon blo< d are not afraid to die. Tht men that trouble, and whose hearts go pitty-patty because they have got to die, are not worth a picayune. A man that refuses to walk up in the track, no mat ter what comes, and steadily press for ward, though there should be a lion in the way, he is not of Mormon grit. That was the grit Joseph Smith had: and when he spoke, he spoke by the power of an endless priesthood, which wasnpnn him; and that is the power by which Brigham speaks. When he stood up in the ma jesty of his priesthood, and rebuked the "judges here, I know some of our milk and water folks thought all the fat was in the fire. 4* Brother Brighman lias gone rather too far ; he might have spoken a a little milder than he did; 1 think it would have been much better," etc. This was the language of some hearts; and 1 feel to say, damn all such pour pussy ism. When a man of God speaks, let him speak what he pleases, and let all Israel say amen. Parisian Gambling Saloons.?Mean-1 while, says the Parisian gossip of the | London Atlas, the one resource of gossip in the decadence of every Government is found in the tittle-tattle, literally 44 re newed from the Greeks,of the relabhsse- j ment des Jctiz Publics. The thing Ls most certainly debating at this moment. The successful candidate for the ferinagt being no other than our friend Vernon, who always seems to follow th<^state ship in a tour, like the shark. W the watch for whatever prey may be con signed to the deep to lighten its progress ?perhaps lie treats it like a private ves sel, and knows well enough that every now and then, when hard pressed by the enemy, the captain is compelled to throw some of his mostvaluable booty overboard. This seems the plan upon which these old and rotten nest-eggs of corruption are about to reappear before an indulgent public. Four only are to be allowed to exist iu Paris. Foreigners of all ranks are to be admitted to these gilded dens, without examination : but French sub jects will be compelled to exhibit, on en trance, not less than five hundred francs. No player is to be allowed to stake a smaller sum tliau one hundred (rancs at a time: but above this sum the stake is to be unlimited. Veron is bound to de posit by Da&ter a sum of forty millions by way of caution money, and the first gambling-house is to be opened with the same warrant of government approval, and the same publicity, as the Frascati ol olden time. The localc is said to be al ready determined on?in the Rue Drouot. the splendor and artistic decorations ol the grande salle already spoken of as something unwitnessed as yet throughout the whole of Europe, and at the sugges tion of one of our great poets, who has studied the philosophy of human nature until not the smallest gold in its darkest recesses has been left unturned, an Arab divan is to be established, where the | roost subtle preparations of haschish an to be administered to those who delight in the influence of this drug, and who have the power to enjoy the visions ol the blest beneath its sway. A marble bath of vast p oporlions and oriental magnificence is also talked of, as a novel addition to the luxuries of such an es tablishment, where the player may re fresh himself after the scorching emotions of the gaming-table, and issue forth cooled Com the excitement of gain or loss.

That is to say, the fair wearer, whose total stock in life in the way of intellectual and physi cal acquirements would hardly secure her living, or enable her to educate a son, spends as much in one evening s folly for the <?ress cannot possibly be worn twice?as a gray-haired book-keeper, or an ingenious mechanic, or a skilful man printer can make in a year.

CVRroF VlRl LE.NT S*ALi. ToX, SCAB i.KT b t\ j-.n. or MHisles.?This recipe was originally furnished hv Mr. L. Larkin member of the Royal CVlIege of Surgeons* who vouches for it as a medicine that will effect a revolution in the healing art as regards the prevention and cure not only of the *mall pox, but also of measles and scarlet fever, however malignant the type. On the first appearance of fever and ir ritation on ushering in attacks, the sub joined mode of treatment should at onoe entered upon : Take one gram each of jowdered foxglove or digitalis, (valuable in the ration of its greenness?the dark should be rejected) and one of sulphat of zinc, (this article is commonly known as wliite nitrol.) These should" be robbed thoroughly in a mor;ar or other conven ient vessel , with four or five drops of wa ter : this done, a noggin, or about four ounces more, with some syrup or sugar ;hou!d be- added. Of this mixture a ta bles poouful should be given to an adult, and two tea-spoonsful to a child, every second hour until the symptoms of dis" tase vanish. Thus conducted, convalesence, as if br magic, will result. 1 lie action of the medicine is thus explained : The herb, by its febrile qualities, lays hold of the lover which it immediately strangled, while the zmc acts as a tome, instantly restoring equilibrium. It may. however, be necessary further to note that should tlie bowels become obstructed in the progress of the disease, (an evil in no wise common) then a drachm of the compound powder of ja lap, (fo 1 mod by two parts cream of tar tar with one of jalap) and one grain of the herb treated as aW>ve, formed into a pastil with syrup or sugar, should be given an adult and half the quantity to a child. This simple medicine shuts out every other drug or form of treatment whatever, as totally unnecessary, if not pernicious. Eccentric Preacher.?Murray's " Handbook of South Ialy" is just pub lished, and contains some curious stories respecting Fra Rocco. the celebrated Doniinician preacher and the spiritual Joe Miller, of Naples. On one occasion, it is related, he preached on the mole, a' penitential sermon, and introduced so many illustration of terror, that he soon brought his hearers to their knees. While they were thus showing ever} sign of contrition, he cried out: "Now, all you who sincerely repent of your sins, hold up your hands.'1 Every man in the vast multitude immediately stretched out his hands. Rocco then exclaimed. ?? Holy Archangel Michael, thou who* with thine adamantine sword standestat the right of the judgment seat of God hew me eff every hand wbioh has been raistd hypocritically." In an instant every had dropped, and Rocco, of course, poured forth a fresh torrent of eloquent invective against their sins and their deceit. He had a great dislike to tobacco, and when once preaching to a crowd of Spanish sailors, he astounded them by telling theu that there were no Spanish saints in heaven. A few, he said, had butn admitted, but they smoked m many cigars, that they made the holy virgiu sick, and St. Peter set his wits to work to get them out. At length, he pix> claimed that a bull fi^it was to take place outside the gate of Paradise. Thereupon every Spaish saint without k^don Lancet state* that iusanity is greatly on the increase among the working classes in England, and that none but those whose duties bring then in contact with the sufferers, can form an idea of its fearful spread. In one pariah there are 494 person* of this description at the public charge.
