Sometime since, a female presented

and these she pursued a number of
weeks without any change. After this
she called on me, and, with some hesi-
ation.begged . to know whether an
application recommended to heir would,
inmv ooinion, be safe.' This consisted
in applying the hand of a dead man
inree umes .to mc uqseaseu pari. une
of her' neighbors now lay dead, . and
she had an opportunity of trying the
experiment, if not thought dangerous,
At first I was disposed to divert her
from it, but recollecting the power of
the imagination, gravely assured heralmost cut through, : then it began to
that she might make the trial, without
apprehension of serious consequence,
A while after she -presented herself

nine hours out of the twenty-four, and
I never write after dinner or supper,
I never have, at anv time, written more
than five hours-a day, and I read at

Every one will remember the story
of Burke, who on one occasion had
just risen in the House of Commons,'
with some papers m his hands, on the
subject of which he intended to make
a motion, when a rough-hewn member,
who had no ear for the charms of do-
quence, rudely started up and said":
"Mr. Speaker, I hope tho honorable
gentleman does not mean to read that
large bundle of papers, and bore us
with a long speech into the bargain!'

suffocated with rage, as to be totally
incapable of utterance, and absolutely
ran out of the House.
It was on ' this occasion that tho
witty George Selvin remarked:

, In Boston, last fall, a man detecting
an unlawful intimacy between his wife
and a neighbor, entered a complaint .
against them, upon which they were
held to bail, which they readily found.
The injured husband was also bound
over, as principal witness, and notbeing
able to get bail was lodged in jail to
await the trial.' The case came up the"
other day, when it was found that the
husband could not be a witness against
his wife and all parties were dismiss
ed. Thereupon the injured husband
"more in sorrow than in anger" ad
dressed the Court as follows:
"Your Honor, is this what they call
justice? Here, six months ago, I com-
plained against this man for criminal
intercourse with my wife; thereupon I
was locked up put of the way, and he
has lived with her everv since. Now
you say I can't testify and there's inq,
case against them. Why couldn't you '
tell me so last fall, without keeping me
in jail all winter, and leaving the parties
to go on half a year longer, making a .
bad matter worse, without me to trouble -'em.
Darn such Justice!' '
A Solemn Thought. It ha3 been
observed with much significance, that
every morning we enter upon a new
day, carrying still an unknown future "
in its bosom. How pregnant and stir-

Feelings may be awakened to-day,
which may" never be extinguished.
Hope may be excited to-day which may
never expire. Acts may be performed .
o-day, the consequence of which may '
not be realized till eternity.
