The circumstance itself occurred in
the town of Warren ton, and was ielatec
there at a Bible meeting, by a gentleman
of respectability and veracity conntcteo
with the society. The circumstance war
introduced in the following words :
About three years ago, two little boys,
decently clothed, the eldest appearing to
be about thirteen, and the younger elev
en, called at the lodging-house for va
grants. in this town, for a night's lodg
ing. The keeper of the house (very
properly) took them to the vagrants' of
fice to be examined, and, if proper ob
jects, to be relieved. The account 'they
gave of themselves was extremely affect-1
ing, and no doubt was entertained of its ]
truth. It appears that but a few weeks
had elapsed since these poor little wand
erers had resided with their parents in
London. The typhus fever, however, in
one day carried off both father and
mother, leaving the orphans in a wide
world, without a home and without
friends. Immediately after the last trib-1
ute had been paid to their parents' mem-1
ory, having an uncle in Liverpool, poor I
and destitute as they were, they resolved I
to go and throw themselves upon his pro-1
tection. Tired, therefore, and faint,!
they arrived in this town on their way-1
Two bundles contained their little all I
In the youngest boy's pocket was found. I
neatly covered and carefully preserved, a I
Bible. The keeper of the lodging-house,!
addressing the little boy, said:
44 You have neither money nor meat, I
will you sell me this Bible ? I will give |
you five shillings for it."
" No;" exclaimed he, (the tears roll |
ing down his youthful cheek;) "I'll!
starve first."
Then said the keeper: 44 There are!
plenty of books to be bought beside
th;s; why do you love this Bible so
much ?"
44 No book has stood my friend so much I
as my Bible,'' replied the boy.
44 Why, what has your Bible done for J
you ?" asked the keeper.
The boy answered : 44 When T was * I
little boy, about ssven years of age, 11
became a Sunday scholar in London. I
1 hrough the kind attention of mv mas-1
ter, I soon learned to read mv Bible? j
this Bible; young as I was.it showed I
me that I was a sinner, and a great one. |
too: it also pointed me to a Saviour;!
and 1 th'nk God that I have found mer- J
cy at the hands of Christ, and I am
not ashamed to confess him befo/e the!
world." !
To try him still further, six shillings I
were then offered him the Bible. 44No,"|
said he, 44 for it has been my support al1 {
the way from lx)ndon ; hungry and wea-1
ry, often have I sat down by the way-1
sides to read my Bible, and have found
refreshment from it."
Thus did he experience the oonsola-1
tion of the Psalmist, when he said, "Thy |
comforts have refreshed my soul." Hel
was then aske-J, 44 What will you dor
when you get to Liverpool, should your!1
uncle refuse to take you in?" The re-|
ply may excite a blush in many Chris-11
tians: 44 My Bible tells," said he, "when !
my father and mother forsake me, then 11
the Lord will take me up." The man!
could go no further, for the tears choked 11
his utterance, and they both wept to 11
gether. They had in their pockets tick-1
ets as rewards for their good conduct, I
from the school to which they belonged, I
and thankfulness and humility were visi-1
ble in all their deportment.'
At night these two orphans, bending |
their knees at the side of their bed, com-1
mitted themselves to the care of their I
Almighty Father?to him whose ears are I
open to the prayers of the poor and des-1
titute; and to him who has said,44 Call |
upon me in the day of trouble; I will I
deliver thee and thou shalt glorify me."|
The next morning these refreshed little I
wanderers arose early, dressed themselves I
for their journey and set out for the!
town of Liverpool; and may He who |
hears the ravens' cry, bear and answer!
their petitions, guide them through time, I
and bless them in eternity.
[Christian Index.
A case of more than ordinary interest
is now in progress in Virginia. Dr.
William B. Thompson is under trial at
the Special Term of the Circuit Court of
Alleghany charged with the muider of
Miss Agnes Pharr. The indictment sets
forth that Miss Pharr was poisoned by
strychnine, administered in a pill pur
porting to be iron, and partly so. The
accused and the deceased were under an
engagement of marriage at the time.
Mrs. Pitzer, one of the principal wit
nesses, testified to the sudden illness ol
Miss Pharr, and io the fact that Dr. T.i
and Dr. McDonald were called to her
aid. The closing part of the evidence of
Mrs. P. was as follows:
When the third spasm passed off, Dr.!
T. touched Dr. McD. on the shoulder. I
and they both left; immediately she
missed him and inquired if Dr. T. had
gone; noticed that she was becoming
very much excited and hastened to hei
bedside; beggtd her to be composed, and
said to her, the Dr. will be back di
rectly; commenced rubbing her hands
and slapping her cheeks, to prevent s
return oi thote awful hysterical convul
sions, for I thought it was excitement
that was bringing them on ; could not
prevent a return ; the symptoms herald
ing a return were present; but the pow
ers of life were so far exhausted as u> be
unable to support a convulsion; she sick
ened at the stomach. With difficulty
her mother and myself threw htr shoul
ders far enough lorward to keep her frotu
strangling. We laid her down ;" called
T., for he was still within hearing;
he returned, so did Dr. McD.,in a short
time; they used their utmost skill, but

to no avail. Her face turned black : she
died; Dr. T. paid her death or those
spells was caused by the long continued
use of iron: that it affected the brain and
caused her death. This conversation wi<
addressed to Dr. MclJ. ?
Miss P bad three spasms: as rii? fourth

nvt-d: in fifteen minutes afterwards an
other came on: say in two hours from
first, the 3d came on, and in 24 hours
from 1st, the 4th, when she died During
spasms, head and shoulders were thrown
back: don't know positionof arms during
spasms. When off, she threw up hand,
and wiped forehead, and smoothed her
hair?exhausted when convulsions passed
off; perspiration very great: entirely con
scious between spasms: first indication*
of return of spasms was nervousness;
eyes opened wide: very much dilated and
staring round the room: noticed frothing
at the mouth twice?if noise had any ef
fect on her, did not notice it. All that
seemed to affect her was Dr. T.'s ab
sence: when she spoke, seemed intelligi
ble and conscious?during spasms, her
face would turn very dark, but return ta
natural color whenever spasms passed off,
looked like as if she was in perfect
health?body swollen after death?don't
know whether rigidity or flexibility su
pervened, she was very tieshy ?as last
spasm came, she noticed that Dr. T. was
absent and inquired for him; seemed to
be the same nervousness and twitching of
the whole body, as present in other
<pasms. (Here witness described body,
and the manner in which it was dressed
for interment, for the purpose of ideniifi.
cation.) During spasms, convulsed from
head to foot?limbs straight and rigid.
The mother of Miss Pharr was also ex
amined. She testified to the marriage
??neagement, and closed her evidence
4* She told him she did not believe he
intended to marry her, and that she was
ruined, and that he was the cause of it.
One sentence was, ?? I trust you will
never treat another lady as you hav?
treated me Had several conversations
with Dr. T.. once abont six weeks after
her death. Told him 1 was sorrv he had
not given iron at Chrutuias wher'l wish
ed it done. He said her stomach w*s 'n
such a condition, it would not do to give
her iron now; replied that she had tt
ker none until th^ first week in Sep e? -
ber. He said there wa* some irou in the
assafce ida. Told h'm h<T stomach wag
in no better con liiion when she did take
iron than when she refused it. The pills
sent on the 25th were sent unsolicited.
1 asked Dr. T. after Agnes' death if ne
had sent for srychnine. He said he nad
sent to Dr. Coleman for three grains.
Asked him when ? He said two months
previous to her death. Asked him what
he got it for: he said for Mrs. Campbell's
head, that she had goiten a fall. Dr. T.
commenced the treatment of Agnes' case
about the middle of January, 1853. She
heard the rumors of strychnia about two
w eeks af'er Agnes' death. Never seen
any attack similar to the one she died.
Her general health before her death, was
as good as usual. Noticed her vomiting
fW while in Appomattox, in Nr rem ber,
1853. The good spirits of Agues were
caused by Dr. T. telling her that he was
g'ing to Botetourt to make the arrange
ment for their marriage.
On the morniug of her death she asked
me to cut her out some sewing. Agnes
slept in my room, except when visitine
ttbroad. She was at Mrs. Allen'* end
Mrs. Payne s early i.* LV cmW. Had
no suspicion of anything wron^r *i.:
the post uiorteiu examination- Dr. V.
and Agnts had private interviews, some
times, in a room to themselves. He vis
ited us often; there was no other person
addressing my daughter?had no male
associates. Agnes was a person of warm
attachment. She was in her twentieth
year. She had studied all the English
branches, Latin, French, and Greek; was
a person of good education. She saw
the large pill the night before her death ;
supposed she took it in the morning.
Dr. T. was with Agnes while at Payne's.
Dr. T. brought her home. Asked Mrs.
and Mr. Pharr s assent to the marriage,
in January, 1852. Agnes had ordered
her marriage apparel from Lynchburgh ;
they came to hand a day or two after
The father of Miss Pharr has died sinca
the death of his daughter, of anxiety and
grief. The trial was still in progress at
our last accounts.
Wanted.?A small American or Pro
testant girl, about 12 or 14, to do the
work of a small family, and 10 tatte care

The above is taken from a late num
ber of the New York Sun. "A girl of 12
or 14, to do the work of a small family,
and take care of children !" This is con
sidered work for two or three negroes in
the South, and yet these Northerners,
who have so much sympathy for our
slaves, think nothing of it. Can there be
a worse s'a very than that which compels
a girl of 12 or 14 to do the work of a
small family, and take care of children ?
Hundreds of similar cases occur in the
large cities of the East. What shall we
say to those people who are ever strain
ing at a gnat and swallowing a camel ?
Louisville Democrat.
Loitery Pest.-?Most of our basin
men, and even our clergymen, 00mplain
of being constantly anooyad by circulars
from lottery schemers of all kiixts, and
hailing from all parts of the country, but
particularly from Baltimore. Same gen
tlemen, who are justly and prudently
very much opposed to any connection
w hatever with such swindling operations,
have endeavored to get relieved from t^e
^anoyance by requesting the ostensible
lottery firms no longer to take the liberty
of sending them circulars. Instead how
ever, of this being attended to. they have
been assailed with insult worthy of the
audacity of unprincipled gamblers.
