The men who were in Aiulover Thcologi-1
cal Seminary in 181t>-ll\ will remember j
among such men as Temple, and V isk, and |
Goodell, and Parsons, a thin pale youth, ot I
middle stature, a hard student, gentle in his |
manners and thoughtful in his mein. M hen
Fisk and Parsons went out missionaries to
Palestine, they asked this young man, their
friend, Jonas King, to come and join them.
He said if they would write such letters to
him as would make him believe it to be his
duty he would certainly come. They went,
life pursued his studies with great success,
and was soon called to the Professorship of.
Oriental Languages in one «>t the < cliches
of New England. For the sake of superior ,
advantages in titting himself for the service i
he went to Paris, and there hisstudiesbrought j
him into contact with some of the most dis
tinguished men of science, and scnoihI of the
leading minds of Europe. Parsons died af
ter a short service and found a lone grave in
Egypt. Fisk wrote to Mr. King, then in
Paris, and tagged him to come to Jerusalem
and take the vacant place by his side. Mr.
King applied to a few gentlemen of wealth
for the means of support for three years, and
in a signal manner the means were furnished.
The American Hoard ot Missions accepted
his offer to go to Jerusalem for three years.
The Missionary Society of the Netherlands,
and the Paris Missionary Society ga\e him
funds and commission, and individuals came
forward to his support, so that he was "ent
out as the representative of these institutions.
Mr. King and the eccentric traveller W olft,
who met him at Malta, made a tour ot three
months in Egypt, distributing the Scriptures
i r. nil t-i I In i.-nv nr^ f»i2«l rlnwii the \ i!e. and
then crossing the desert, went to the Holy
City. Here in Joppa, Mr. King labored lor
three years and then went down to larsus on !
his way back to America, with rich ^ stores of i
Arabic manuscripts, and the fruits ot his
years of researches in these Oriental fields,
’the ship in which he was to go to Smyrna
being somewhat leaky, he resolved to cross
the country and send his effects by the vos>el.
On its voyage the ship was U»anle l by 'neck
pirates and plundered: and all the books,
manuscripts, &c., of Mr. King were swept <>t!
bv these robbers of the sea. 1 his loss ob
tained him in Smyrna for six mouths.—Here
he devoted himself to the study ol the modern
Greek; and here, too, he met the lady who
has since been for so many years his noble
wife, the companion of his life, the solace ot
hi* sorrows, and the mother of his seven love
ly children.
From Smyrna he went to Paris, and there
was again thrown into the families and the
society ofeminent tnen whose names are fa
miliar in the ears of the world. With them
hj read ami expounded the Scriptures, and
found a wide and effectual door opened for the
advancement of the work of God. Keturning
to the United States, he travelled tor some
months in the service of the American Board,
and was urged by the Ladies Greek t ommit
tee of the City of New York to go to Athens
in connection with the contributions then
sent out for the relief of the starving people ot
that country. He came and not long after
wards was again appointed missionary there.
He accepted on condition that he might retire
at any time by giving six months notice of
hi* inteution. A\ ith this condition he lias
now been laboring steadily and earnestly
for more than twenty five years, and has never
vet revisited his native land, though at ai y
time he could do so in thirty day>. W hen
he came to Athens, it was in ruins, and in the
power of the Turk*. Not a pane ol gla^
was in the eitv. lhe best house lie couM
find had uo roof or floor to it. He made a j
shelter for himself and wife, but they were j
exposed bv night and day to the constant
incursions of the Turks. But he was pa
tientand prayerful: trusting a hvays and always
wonderfully cared for, bv Him who keeps his .
children in the hollow of' hi* hand.
Mr. King is a man of whom any institu- j
tion of learning in any country would he •
proud. Several have sought his services, and
nad he consulted his own honor and aggran-,
disement, he would long bo tore this time ;
have been distinguished in the world ot letters
among the first Orientalists ot the age. l>ut
of all the men l have ever met. he is the'
most simple in his devotion to the work tie
i* promoting, in U spirit ot self-abnegation ;
that humbles the pride of any man, who sits
at his feet, while ho seems to think himself j
nothing, and less than nothing for the sake of j
Christ. ,
Of the persecution which I)r. King has en
dured of late years, and under which he is j
this moment suffering, it is less necessary ;
for me to sav anything, as the case is alrea
dy *o familiar to the American people. The
attention which his labors were exciting
among the people, the numbers flocking to |
hi* house to receive religious instruction,
and the wide diffusion of religious hooks,
awakened the opposition of the priesthood
and many of the people v»f the t «reck church.
At first, there were serious and deeply con
certed schemes for his assassination. f"r his
protection, the most remarkable providential
interpositions appeared. 1 he American t oii

the very next day alter receiving the
American flag, his'house was invaded by a
mob with every demonstration of violent do
nums upon hts life. 1 he display of the
stripes and stars dispersed the crowd. It
was at the hour of his usual Sunday religious
service, and after the sermon a priest at
tempted to bring him into a dispute, and
the people began to rage and to press upun
^ His heroic wife, herself a Greek, stood hv
him, and held them at bay. and friends ra -
iled to him, one of whom was a soldier armed,
who had come there on purpose to protect him,
though Dr. King did not know him, and sup
posed from his taking his seat close by his
side, that he had come with the same evil
intention with the rest. At length, as is
well known, his enemies succeeded in bring
ing him before the courts of Greece, under
charges as false and malicious as those on
which the Saviour himself was condemned
to death. His trial was a mockery of justice;
his conviction was produced by no shadow ol
testimony, and his sentence as cruel and bar
barous as any which lias marked the perse
cutions of Christians in modern times, in any
part of the Pagan world:* Dr. King was ac-1
cused of Atheism, and of reviling the reli
gion of the Greek Church, lh the const»tu- j
Son of this government, all religions are pro- j
tected; and an American citizen has a right to
worship God in his own wav, and to utter his
opinions on all religious subjects, as free v as
inthe streets of Washington. The very
Arst article of the Constitution provides
and secures that “Every acknowledged reti
gion is tolerated, and ^ts rites may be ol>
aerved without hindrance under the protec- ]
tion of the law.”
It is at once needless and improper to re
view the progress and spirit of the trial by
which Dr. King was condemned, as Mr.
Marsh, the American Minister of our Gov
emmentat Constantinople, being specially de
puted by the late administration to go to Ath
ens to look into the whole case, has discharg
ed that service, bringing to it such qualifita
tkms in knowledge of international law and
of the languages, institutions and genius of
the Oriental countries, as fitted him perhaps
more than any other man, to give an intelli
gent judgment on the merits of this extra
ordinary case. Hie examination of the sub
ject was patient and protracted. The his
|orv of the case was studied by the docu
mentary report# officially made, aud by la
borious correspondence with the Government,
and the examination of such witnesses as
were necessary to enable the ambassador to
arrive at a fair judgment as to the locality of
the proceeding# against Dr. King, and the
direct invasion of the rights of an American
citizen resident in a foreign country. Mr.
Marsh made his report before the close ot
Mr. Fillmore’s administration, and it is now
in the State Department, subject to the call
of Congress.—Dr. Prime.

TTLALTH restored and life
! For centuries, Medical Science has been ran
sacking the vegetable and mineral kingdoms, in
search of something that should restore the lost
or decaying energies of the nervous and muscular
systems, without the drawback of subsequent
prostration, which all stimulants, tonics, and
‘ narcotics had heretofore entailed. That .some
thing has been found. It is a vegetable prooac
tion, brought from the sterile deserts of Arabia
: the Stony, by the celebrated Professor M. Morse,
: well known as a distinguished member ol the
leading scientific societies of the Old \\ orld. and
1 equally distinguished as a physician, a chemist,
and a traveller. The juices of this herb, concen
i trated and combined with other vegetable medi
cinal extracts, are now producing results, hith
erto unheard of, in this or any other country.
At first the properties attributed to Professor
CORDIAL were deemed fabulous. The public,
1 often deceived, could not believe the simple and
sublime truths announced by the discoverer.
But tacts, undeniable facts, attested by witnesses
ot the highest class and character are now trium
phing over all doubts.
by a mass of testimony which is perfectly irre
i sistible.
The Elixir remedies, in all cases, the deplora
ble evils arising from a misuse or abuse ol the
; various organs which make up the wonderiul
machine called man. It restores to lull vigor
every delicate function connected with that mys
terious compound agency ot matter and mind,
! necessary to the reproduction ol human life.
! To persons ol feeble muscular Ira me, or deficient
in vital power, it is recommended as the only
means of communicating that energy which is
necessary to the proper enjoyment ol all the natu
1 ral appetites, a- well as of the higher mental
attributes. Its beneficial effects are not confined

tor. To those who have a predisposition to par
alysis, it will prove a complete and unfailing
I safeguard against that terrible malady. There
i are many, perhaps, who have so trilled wi h
their constitution*, that they think themselves 1m?
j yond the reach of medicine. Let not even these
despair. The Klixir deals with disease as it ex
ists. without reference to causes, and will not
only remove the disorder i<?!i. but
Brought from a vast distance, the principal in
gredient of the Klixir can only he produced aT a
hea\y expense, and the process ot manufacture
| is also costly. Hence, the price, to be at all re
munerative, must necessarily he higher than that
oft he trashy, chance-compound nostrums, oi winch
the only expense consists in the advertising.
But, if health is indeed a “priceless blessing,
then is the Invigorating Klixir and Cordial the
cheapest medicine in the known world.
The derangements of the system, leading to
nervous diseases, and the forms ot nervous disease
itself, are so numerous, that it would require a

Whenever the organs to bp acted upon are tree

An appeal is made to E\ ER^ WOMAN OF

other disorder, whether peculiar to her sex, or
common to both sex»*—to give the Invigorating
Cordial a trial.
Hear what the celebrated and distinguished Dr.
W OOD of Massachusetts, says oj it :
Massachusetts Insane Hospital, /
W orcester. June !, IMS. S
Dear Sir:—It giv es me pleasure to inform you,
that one ol my patients, while in Boston, procur
ed some of your Cordial, which he tells me he
has taken two weeks, for which time lie has not
been troubled as he was before. He already
looks like anew ]>erson, who so short a time
since looked so pale and thin, and was scarcely
i able to crawl around. 1 thought it scarcely pos
sible tor him ever to regain his full strength and
faculties: his case was an extremely bad one. 1
prescribed the usual medicine used in such case
in the Hospital, but they were of no ♦‘fleet. In
the mean time, my patient had procured some <»f
vour Cordial, which effected a cure, I am satis
fied no other medicine could have done. I shall
everwarmlv recommend it whenever an oppor
tunity occurs. The Inventor in my younger
days I well remember, as being considered one
of the most skilful physicians in the tT. State*,
' and had heard his Cordial very highly spoken of,
but was one of the incredulous as to its merits,
until I was so unexpectedly and satisfactorily
convinced to the contrary, it must be a great
j consolation to you, to think what a vast amount
of human misery your Cordial is alleviating.
With my warmest wishes lor your health, hap
piness and continued success, I remain, very tru
ly, yours, H. A. W 00D, M. D.
