Ikclra.. .f Boc.st rareltga Traral, When vi.iting the graat Kngliah nnirarsi tiea, at Oxford and Camb'id/e, I had ihe opportunity of going intoieveral rooms which were once occupied by persoos of eminent character and influence. One of theM, at Cambridge, was that of tbe poet Gray, the author of that verjf popular little piece, enti tled The Elegy in a Conntry Churchyard." Another was tbat of Era.rou*, the diatin*. guiabed scholar and reformer born in Rot terdam, Oct. 2Rtb, 1467. At tbe invitation of Kinr Henry VIII., in 1610, he becaneUni vertity-lecturer ou Greek, an I Lady-Margar et ProfeMor of Theology. The love of liter ature waa tbe paisiou of his nature. He waa a compeer of Luther, and ranch of bi. lifa waa spent on tbe continent. While at Cam bridge, I had an introduction to Itev. Dr. Ligblfool, a verr celebrated modern divine, and Profeoor of Theology in the tTnirersi tv, having, if I mistake not, tbe same posi tion tbat Er*.mus did, three huudred and fifty ream ago. I called upon him twicc, and he remarked that the room wbich I was then ir, and which he himself occupies, waa the room that Sir Iiaac Newton, tho cele brated mathematician and natural philoso pher, had when in the University, lie was a Fa'low, and alao a Profcaaor of M»tbe mat irs tbe Lucasian Chair, alter tbe mifna- i lion of Dr. Isaac Barrow. It while per formiug the dutie* of tbis professorship, tbat be made those wonderful discoveries hicb hsve immortalized his name. While littin? in tb s room, and tbinkin? of what was achieved for science and tke world's im provement by this great philosopher, who waa accnstomed to sit in tbe same p'ace atudyin? the laws of nature and woikiay oat the mijrh'y piohlem. cf the universe, I waa diaposed to do horns re to genius aa I had never been bef ,re. It is pleasing to know thst his talent, and dlicoveries, as well a* his character and piety, were so much ap preciated aad bo: ore] as they were. Queea Anne beatowed upon hia the enviable de gree of kniirhtbood in Trinity College l»dge and when George I. ascended tbe throne, be was a rreat favorite at court, tboegh he had become an aged man. I may .tate, that while in Cambridge. I had Ibe privilege of dining in Trinity Hall, which ie tbe largest of all tbe college hall, of tbe two universities. I sat witb Dr. Light foot at the Fellow'* table, placed on a plat form at the Ofld ol tbe ball and it wo. an interesting sight to wilneM tha Many hun dreds of Mudenta come in and lake their places at the tablea below. The hour of di ning was six P. M. I alto accents'! invita tions to dine at halls of other col le fee, both in Cambridge aad Oxfjrd. It in prrbapa unnecesasrv to say that, anlike our Ameri can institutions, theae English univer.itiea include, or con«i«t of, a great number of col leges, each with ita distinct group of baild inga, with separate professors and fe'tows. There are, bnweref, some buildings of amor general cha actor, and which pertain to the whole university. During iry tarry ia I.oadoe, I aaw the parsonage of tbe Wenlev Chapel, situnted on a street called tbe City Road, aad adjoining tbe chapel itse'f. This tenement wae occu pied by John Wesley, when he was in charge aftbe Methodist coegregation worshipping in tbe chapel. Wesltyau minister! aad their families still occupy it. When in tbe city of Constance, Switzer land, I saw the house in whicb John Huaa, the great Bohemian refumer, lodged, more tlsn tbrec hundr and fifty year* ago. He had been summoned to attend the accleeias tical council which was to be co.iveoed in that city. Be cane, aud the council was oaa of the mast famous of Modern times for it Bought to crush Ihe dawning reformation by Mndemning and eentaaeing to death its no* bleat and boldest advocates. During my etAV ia the^atlw* of Geneva, Switzerland, I visited two dewlKags once oc cupied by two wholly different n, whose ia fluence upon the world, ever since, hss been totally unlike. I wss in them both tie aauie day, and I could net help coutraating the two illustrious persona formerly dwelling therein. One of tbein. Rou.aeau, wss a po rt and pbiloxiper, and the author of souie brilliantly eloquent worka, but bs was a da' .ponding ikeptic in relegiou, aud given to tne practice of a debasing immorality. Ha wae a strenuc ua advocate of social equsl ity," which would do away with all tbe nat ural and proper distinctions in harosn «ocie ty, a system which the ^overnmeat Frauee (where be was then residme) so greatlf dis approved, that he waa obliged to take repose in Switzerland, his own native couMry. Tbe other individual, John Calvin, was one of the three great continental reformers, in the early part tbe sixteenth century, and bis name is as familiar aa household word in all Pr.-testant lands. He spent much ot his life in Get eva, tbe city of bis birth, and from 1541 to !5f4, when be died, be labored there moot ssaiduously as pastor, writer, ecclesiastical ruler, and reformer Hie bouse, as also that occuprsd by Rous seaa, are of stone, and though quite unpre tending in appearance, are substantial build infra, and capable of euduriag the ravages of time much better than many modern atruc ure-i. If not mistaken, it was in tbia very kouaeof Caluiu whicb I visited, abete, be ing in feeble baalth, in Ibe latter portion of his life, be engaged in nocturnal study by •.be light of a dim lamp saspended from the canopy of bis humble bed and where, shortly before bis death, he summoned tbe syndics, or cbietmagistratee, of Geneva, and soleaaly adjured them to ad ban to tha pare gospel ofChriet. tpnrick. 8.

Tbe event took place in the summer of IB 16, when ha was thirty yean old, a capita! sporUMaa and a man of remarkable pera m al Mreagth aad great height (six feet four). He wae eat aa yet a baiaaet, and waa at ths time living at H.MpiMorf, aad daily tiding iate Spitalfieid* to attend to tka anin of e brewery in whieh he waa a partaer. Du ring a vi*»t that hia wile and child rea ware making at a diataace, he had beea claying with bis bruthar-in law, Mr. Hoare, net far trom his boma. When hie eervant brought bis hoces to him there, it was with tha iatel ligenee that hie dog, Princa, was io a atrange sUtt, had killed the cat, almost hill ing another dag, aad bad tried to bite some of the servsnt*. Mr. Buxton deiirad tbM tb* creature abouid te lied up and taken care of, and thaa rade off to bis busiure* in town but as be relumed be saw Prince, evidently Mad, covered with inud, ruuaing furi usly and biting at everythis^. Mr. Buxton tried to tide him down or drive hiM into SOMC outhoas*, but ia vain and be bit at leeat a doaen doga, two boys, aud a man, apriagiag at a boy and a izing him by tbe breast, hut this time bis master aa* *ar enough ta knock bias down with his whip. He then changed kia course, wt tiu/ off for London, and Mr. Buxtou roda by hia side, waiting tor seaaa OMortuaity af stopping bim, and coastaatlf oastling to hiai bat the poor animal waa paM attending to tbe well-known veice, whether coaxing or soolding. He was gettiag aear More inhabited places, and coasidsriag the fear ful daMag* be might eflact, Mr. Buxton thonjrht "if ever there waa aa occaaion that justified a risk of life, this waa it," and de termined to catch him binself. Princa raa •o a garden door, and Mr. Baxtoo, leaping from hia bom, graiped him by tbe neck. Hia Mrogrte* were *o disperata that it •cemed at fir*t almoM Itaposaible even for so powerful a man to hold elm (be was evi dently a laige dog) bat lifting him sp from tho ground, he was MOM easily mstiaged, and Mr. Boston eontrivsd le ring the bell bit for a loag time no oaa cawa to hia help, an J, being amid loot thr FCSM which was pouring froM the poor baaat'* jaw* mifht get iate *UM* ecrakh oa bit Angers, aad be as daaceroaias an actual bite, be with great diBoalliy held Priaee with aaa haad, while be worked tbe other iatp tba clove ia hi- r«rVre'.

I've brought you a trad dof.*' waa the answer and, desiring hiM to gst strong chain, Mr. Buxton walked into tbe yard, carrying Prince by the neck. He waa determined not to kill the dog at once, thinking tbat it it should prove not to be a esse of hydrophobia, it would b« a great relieflo tba persons *ho had been bitten, and tbis coala only b« determined bf letting the disessa taks ita^coura*. The gardener was in great terror, but haul asnas enough to obey directions, and waa ablstosecaes the collar round the dog's neck, snd lastan the other end of tbe chain to a tree. Mr. But ton then wslked to utmost bound of the chain, and with all hi. force, "which," le SSTS, "wis nearly exhausted by tba dog's frantic struggles," threw the creature eft far away from bin a. bs cot. Id, aad sprsn^back in time te avoid poor Priuce's desperate bound after him, wbich waa followed by the most fearful yell be ever be.rd All dsy tke unhappy erenture, ia ihe mis ery of tbat horrible disease to wbick cmr fsitbful companions are .otnttiinea lahjact, rushed mund and rour.d the tree, chaapisf ibe foam that rushed from bi* Jew^ a*d when food waa thrown to hiM, aaat Aad at it with fury, but could not eat h.

Between the ptoage of thia ha contrived to get ibe dog's body, witboat pierc ing it, snd thus held him pinned down to the ground, while fastening a much larger t-fanin round bis neck. On tha pitchfork be ing removed, the dognprsng up and dashed after his n aster with neb violent* that tbe old thain snspped in two. However, tbe frenzy Kxin spent hit strength, snd be died only forty-eigbt konri sncr the first symptoms ol madnen bad appeared. All tle dugs and tats be had bitten were killed by Mr. Buxton bimaelf, knowing tbat for aucb a painful busineaa il waa winr to trust to no one's resolution and humanitr lat Lii own. The man and boyi had the bitten parts cat out and tbe woania burnt, and it was hoped that the horrid conquence. anight be averted from them. Hi himself Tpreaj ed great tbaokfulness both for bis ow.- es cape aud bis children's akience from home, and tbua wrote to his wife a dsy or two af ter: ''What a terrible businew it was.
