It was u only last Sunday, that, 'while the" man' was strolling with the lad, he asked : "Bab, does your mother. bang her hair? and the fool answered: aOh, no; but you f. ought to see her bang dad's head, : Guess the minister didn't know everything when! he told pap to. prepare to die. Prepare, why he was just aching to die," thority in the -world, he left a last legacy to the medical, profession, in rtho , following lines which he requested his brethren of, the Jjancet to publish, whenever angina ' pectoris should strike his death blow : 'I die a Chiistian, in the now, I fear,; much despis ed sense of that term, a simple believer in Jesus Christ as a personal, living and loving Saviour, with out any righteousness of my own, but perfect and secure in His; and that 'I know in whom I believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him until that day.' JThe touching comment by his editorial com rade, upon these solemn and pathetic words from beyond theyeil, is written as follows : 'The physician who in his own person consciously bears about with him the poignard that shall put a period to his existence, even feels its sharp point at his heart; knows when and how it will strike , him; sees the shadow of death thrown distinctly across his path, by each gleam of the sunshine so joyous to those around him. The man whoTbeing thus haunted, is not all his lifetime subject to bondage, must have that within him which surpasses mere human strength, or be steeped in a Lethe of forgetfulness impossible to understand. We know the treasures of knowledge acquired by such men are not lost, but their own share of the fruits of labor- what becomes of that? Why. are they deprived of their reward ? f Questions like these will rise unbidden in the mind; in days of narrow-minded and shortsighted materialism, when scientists seem to exult in destroy ing the fond lWpe of immortality,' while' they have nothing to offer in the stead of this aspiration; When there is a growiag disposition to scoff at all that lies beyond the horizon of sense, or outside 1 Nature, and it is counted a triumph of intellect to believe in nothing which cannot be demonstrated by the puny appliances and processes science has already discov ered it is unwise to rebuke these questionings of the inner soul of man. a veritable eternity, albeit the principle we feel within is not to be laid bare by the scalpel of the anatomist, or brought under the phy siologists here. "In the name of science and humanity, let us have more of this spirit of hope and confidence in the Future, for it enables men to , bear the ills of life placidly, to do its work honestly and earnestly ; it cheers the spirit in life, and helps it to gaze calmly on the dread visage of Death,' and to meet him cheerfully in the hour of his triumph.' ' London Lancet, June 14, 1879. 'The time has come to speak out boldly on this . subject, and we are persuaded the good sense and .self-respect of the profession will approve the pro test against that spirit of restless izitagonism to t the claims of religion which has unhappily obtained fuller expression in a small section of our ranks dur ing the last few years, and whioh if not repudiated, must be expected to increase. ; 'We agree that the physician should not usurp the functions of the minister of religion; but he is for bidden by the spirit of manliness' 'to take refuge in the opposite extreme of moral cowardice, with a pre ' tenoe of rndifferenoe.7 XaiJuly 12,' 1879; .physician is inseparable iiv :;.nr .

X' ': "Jeremy Taylor quaintly but beautifully said : , 'And what greater measure can We have than, that we should bring joy to our : brother, who, with his dreary eyes, looks to heaven and round about, and cannot find so much rest as to lay his eyelids' close together than, that thy tongue should be tuned witn heavenly accents, and make the weary soul to listen for light and ease; and when he perceives that there is such a thing in the world, and in the order of things, as comfort and joy, to begin to break out from the prison of his sorrows at the door of sighs and tears, and by little and little melt into showers and refreshment ?

All sorts of queer things are carried by the railroad companies nowadays, bat the oddest piece of freight that has been seen in Pitts burg for a long time, passed through on Sat urday. A chubby, round-face, bright looking boy, eleven years old, named Casay Pemmel, arrived in this city on Saturday evening, in the care of the messenger of the Baltimore and Ohio Express Company. He had trav elled as a piece of express matter from some place far away in Texas. He had a paper tag tied to him, just as though he were a bag of potatoes, and on the tag was written the address of hi consignee. He was entered on the way-bills and manifests just like any other. freight, and as he passed from the hands of one express messenger to another he was duly receipted lor This living express Jbun dle left Texas on Tuesday, and has been well taken care of. ' With Casey ; was a package containing some money, a baggage check and a ticket over the Pennsylvania Railroad from Pittsburg to Philadelphia. When the boy wanted anything to eat or desired some other reasonable object the messenger took sufllcient money from the package to pay for it and charged it on a bill which was with it. Casey was placed on board a passenger train on the Pennsylvania Road on Sunday, and is now jpobably safe in the hands of his friendB.Pitt8burg Post, Aug. 23. A Memorable Peach Stone. A peach tree grows in the , county of Rockingham, N. C, that sprang from the seed of a peach that the late Gen. Garland held in his hand when he wavshot down, and Capt. Gaer- rant got the seed and planted it on his place in Rockingham. Yon know that Gen. Gar land was greatly beloved by Pender's old brigade. He was walkiog with Col. Tom 'Baffin at the time he was shot; tbey ex nosed themselves too near the Yankee sharpshooters, and Garland fell in Raffia's arms. Reuteviue 'limes.
