John Young, an old fanner li--ing a feAV miles east of Oregon, fell from a scaffold about nine weeks ago, .striking the ground on his head and shoulders, about fori' feet from where he stood.

It is full of tender and thrilling pathos, and glowing Avith hope and fuith in the unseen tilings that lie be fore: Lady Franklin has at last gone forth herself in search of her bcloA'cd :uid lamented husband, Sir .John.

There; will hv, no f--ai-s for her safety, no inquiry as to the late of the voyager, for upon the shore toward Avhieh her bark is steer ing, there are no Avrecks, and he for whom she yearned :Mid sacrificed so much must surely be AA'aiting to meet her.

A Day Outside of the Church. If Christ be not risen, then is your faith vain, and yc arc yet in your sins. That there is a-God, and that there exists such a relation as creator and creature, iip plying- a merciful super vision over man upon the part of the creator, and obedience upon the part of the creature to certain natural laws physical and moral, which seem to enter in to what, we call nature, is the judgment of the more intcllijXil part of mankind. If Ave believed that physi cal laws did not result in any mora' significance, we might, as far as a re ligious idea is concerned, dispen.-e wilh the name of tied, retaining it only as a seii.nliic term. The only excuse we have for entertaining a thought oi the existence of Uod in a religious sene is, that we are under some system of moral government : otherwise, such a thing as conscience, or AVorship, or prayer, or hope, would be absurd : or all ideas of contingency obligation or nroirrcssion, would bo extravagant. There must, bo an anal ogy existing between the human and divin; minds, for Ave fmd that the whole universe is constructed upon the principal of mathemath-al propor tion, and a law of nature, inter preted by our reason, and being per fectly understood by us, must appear to the Creator the same as it does to us: and it is through our reason that we are to understand God in any manifestation that He may make of Him.-elf. The power to reason is an endowment from the Creator: and the ability to reason is the glory of man, and hi loyalty to reason Avill always limit his knowledge. As far as Ave can see reason harmonizes with all things, physical and moral: but it may be necessary that a man's knowl edge must approach a certain state in order to knew some things, and knowledge in imperfection may in some things be no better than none at all. A little learning mav incline a man 1c leel like :i plnlo&oLuicr, but 'it in i ui.iiu-u it uun inji w itii i v7 enough. As certainly as proportion enters into physical hiAVs so right :md Avrong enter ito moral relations; opening to us a field of knowledge, infinite in extent. As the emigrant is invited to homestead the distant lands of I he Avest, so is our reason 'ailed to explore and make the broad fertile plains of knowledge our own. As men ought not to -build on land for which they. can give no title, so men must m.-i, profess (hat certain things are true unless they can give a reason for the things Avhich they hold as being Avorthv of belief. Who soever may ask a rational basis for religious belief must be Avilling to ac cept such a one as reason can give, such a er.o as may appear altogether reasonable, or in uiscaruing reason. follOAV such a one as may appear to him best adapted to his own interest. But that, which may appear most to our interest may not in; reasonable in a true sense. Beason does not run in a channel peculiar to one man, but is common to all, and (bote truths dis covered, received or adopted by the best minds must form some clue as to Avhat is the standard of reason. Our first enlightenment of reason is re ceived from our understanding of physical hrws, but. cannot be confined to itlieni; our reason becomes an orig inal source of knowledge, and there always exists a harmony and an anal ogy between the physical and moral laws with Avhich Ave arc acquainted, but no such harmony or analogy can take the place of reason, nor does reason depend upon analog)-. If Spencer's theory of force, being only phenomenal, is true, then spiritual truths obtain the higher significance, then moral laAvs blend together, har monizing in chords of truth, placing reason upon the basis of moral rather than physical laAV. 2c scientist has yet asserted that man is capable of solving the problem of the Universe, or that it is necessary to comprehend all the relations of nature in order to understand Avhat is necessary, but that it is possible to know them as far as they may concern mankind. Bo neither prophet or philosopher has declared that man must coniprohend "the fullness of God" in order to un derstand ills own relation to him as a subject of moral government. But man has alwavs obtained a knoAvl edge of God so far as that knowledge of God concerned him; and the rea son that men do not have a satisfac tory conception of God, of their pres.-1 cut, and future relation to him, is be cause they willingly are ignorant of those truths which lead to a rational trust, in Cod : and it is only such truths which upon a lational basis form the only foundation of religious belief. Heathen notions of Cod are noi necesarm t-.u-.-, uecau-e in .-omu ViTva TfW TUTTI!"

During the hot and cultry weather an umtsual amount of sickness prevails in every community, especially among fe males and children, caused by the fer mentimr miasma ias or nitrogenous matter iloating in the air, arising from decaying vegetation. This bad air af fects everything we eat, and engenders in it a. semi fermentation which when ta ten in the system is like leaven, and op erates on the whole ; starting in the bowels and soon producing a violent lcrmentation, causing diarrhea and dis- pentery. Tt has heen found that the use of Speer's old l'ort tirape. Wine of New Jersey has an extraordinary effect in checking this lcrmentation and restor ing the system to its original strength and vigor, and when used iu time it pre vents these complaints altogether. In valids and debilitated persons, have found it the most nutricious and strengthening tonic m the market, and the greatest help in resisting the poison ous effects of the vitiated atmosphere. This wine so long established has be come the standard wine upon whieh physicians rely as the most rich in body and genuine in character containing the greatest amount of medicinal properties with the least intoxicating uualities. Speer's vineyards promise a larger yield this year than usual, and he has reduced Ilia price of his wine -th.t any one can now purchase it of xlruggists for 1 per bottle. None ot thiswine is bottled until it is four years old. Ga zette.

'rr, nnis Ayer's Ague Cure, S'or Ferer and Ague, Intermittent Fe ver, Chill Fever, Bemittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Periodical or Bilious Fe ver, &c., and indeed all the affections which arise from malarious, marsh, or miasmatic poisons. Xo one remedy is louder called for by the necessities of the American people than a sure and safe cure for Ffvpr ami Acne. Such we are now enabled to offer, with a perfect certainty that it will eradicate the disease, and with assur ance, founded on proof, that no harm can arise from its use iu any quantity. That which protects from or prevents thia disorder must be of immense service in the communities where it prevails. Prevention is better thau cure; for the patient escapes the risk which he must run in violent attacks of this baleful distemper. This " Cnu:" expels the miasmatic poison of Jfc'cver ami Asrup from the system, and prevents the develop ment of the disease, if taken on the lir?t approach of its premonitory symptoms. A great superiority of this remedy over any othcr ever discovered for the speedy and cer tain cure of Intcnnittcnts is, that it contains no Quinine or mineral; consequently it pro duces no quinism or other injurious effects whatever upon the constitution. Those cured by it are left as licalthy as if they had never had the disease. " , lever anil Aprno is not alone the con sequence of the miasmatic poi-on. A jrreat variety of disorders arise from it- irritation, among which are :Venralria. Kuenma tisni, Gout, Headache, !linIne, Toothache, Ear-ache, Catarrh, Asth ma, Palpitation, Painful Affection of the ftnleen, Hysteric. Pain in the Bowels. Colic, Paralysis, and derange ment of the Stomach, all of which, when originating in this cause, put on the inter mittent type, or become periodical. This "Cuke" expels the poison from the blood, and consequently cures them all alike. It is an invaluable protection to immigrants and persons travelling or temporarily residing in the malarious districts. If taken occasion ally or daily while exposed to the infection, that will be excreted from the system, and cannot accumulate in sufficient quantity to ripen into disease. Hence it is even more valuable for protection than cure; and few will ever suffer from Intermittcnts if they avail themselves of the protection this rem edy affords. For Liver Complaints, arising from torpid ity of the Liver, it is an excellent remedy, stimulating the Lircr into healthy activity, and producing many truly remarkable cures, where other medicines fail, V.
