ORISSOM S ADDRESS. -; - - Editor News : Allow me a little space, (as one of jour constant and edified ' reader to, notice the address recently delivered in VWik mington before the Medical Society of tNorth Carolina, by Df. Eugene Grissom. I find this address in the July number of !& z'Nottk. Carolina 3Iedical Journal. ' " The North Carolina Medical Society is ;in the twenty-eighth year of its existence." It' has been from the first a very useful r and 'benefi cent organization. It has achieved much -in. the field of science, and conferred lasting bene fits on society ; but I think I may say, vwith strict tiuth, that the most edifying and useful ' of all its emanations' is this address byDr. Grissom, in which he meets and explodes . thej assumptions of such men as Darwin, Huxley, Haeckel and others, and demonstrates ; the truth of Divine Revelation. . Such defences t Christianity, are always in order and are al ways, I, regret to say, necessary. Gen. Cling man's reply to these scientific infidels, whibli appears as a . sort of preface to his recently;: published volume , of . speeches, is a masterly refutation of their doctrines, . and does credit alike to his head and heart; but Dr. Grisscjnr has gone more fully than he did into the argW ment, and, meeting these writers on their own ' grounds, has overwhelmed them by the weight of scientific authority which he adduces. It!is not my purpose td' flatter Dr. Grissom, for he does not need It, and Would not receive it, but I wish heartily as one Christian man to thank him for the powerful and conclusive paper read by him before the Association in support jof the great truths of Christianity. Neither should I ask you to copy the scientific parts of the ad dress, for that would be too great a demand on your space, but I venture to request that you will make room for the following paragraphs with which Dr. Grissom closes his address "My brethren of the medical art - in North Carolina, in departing from the usual address before your body, upon the familiar topics of medical history or of technical improvement, to ask you , to consider the grave inquiries placed before you, 1 am obeying a voice frdm theave. t , t 4 ' V?F 'e-serabisdfcie sod fcr - "These,wor23.,wn' irom the achinc heairt of the friend nd : Jet, job of TUbury Fdx, strike the keynpte'ofc, at strain of thought, to which I hs veatttp ask !you to lend your sympaJX ' -v ((Oht itVw' o Pyian who , daily Walks atabng the:' raystcjies ' thati underlie, all our social life, asfi the - human heart baire ia.the.T8ry crir t fcf feir rwho wipes, the sweat bf mortal angur t;from tie brow, who witness es the uihcL, of Gci'sKJwn nesMnger in the -remorse of tirj 4X1?, x who , shudders at the depths of -.dpdSr in yhe maniac's cry, who rstiniggles by the newn?3 ; mother t tthe r .vepry jaws bf death, anli heat:he entreaty j, of ,oul ,even though jbhO'Jtly.c'krUig , terrors that en shroud ttjytfc feeble bjodyjiis she cries, "Save my, chiia,! wlwt4 yt$T , no l.it is ; not such amansurelyTn believe, that man is but a beastan Vtjrr tra dream. t J; 'Theph'yaicia ;e inmost; sanctuary of hooie-Uf.-VI!i h a' aker in its brightest viiojilb'HJl'Oft 1 fears. ,,Heis!tiie con(id&ii$6$?2AeTe8b;. k.ets, s and the ?

What would be the wild pulse of a world lashed to fever heat, in the mere dread and terrible struggle for existence, that the fittest, that is the fiercest and most brutal, may sur vive ! ' "What a dissolving panorama of the destruc tion of the noblest monument of man rises be fore the mind. Religion, literature, philan thropy and art slowly vanishing4 away confi dence leaving the marts of trade; humanity deserting the hospitals to loneliness and deso lation; justice tearing the bandage from her eyes and yielding her embrace to the strongest might, aye, and last of all, love no longer fed by the charities of life, bidding farewell to the househoulds of earth, leaving the world, at last, the paradise of beasts. t . "In America, your profession stands at the head of the social scale. What greater work can it achieve than to meet the infection on the threshold? This plague can do its deadly work only, through moral corruption You, whose 'hands are dedicated to the healing of fellow-man, have the prophylactic in your charge. . No higher duty can enlist your efforts through life. And in that final hour of your pilgrimage on earth a pilgrimage devoted to the alleviation of suffering and distress as you approach to put on that robe of immor tality, which the materialist dreads more than he despises, there will mingle with the grateful prayers, of relieved humanity on earth, the cheering announcement from the great Physi cian of souls, whose truths you have believed and whose commands you h'ave obeyed, Well done, good ard faithful servant ; enter thou into the joys of thy Lord.'
