The same purchase was made lat winter, and tho church put in good repair, with tho express understanding that the property was to bo cared for, and if dotroyed through careless neglect, that those who had contributed liber ally on that occasion would not do so if called on again. , Thesuta total con tributed on the present instance, as fehown by his ligurtM, is only 0 5.1; whereas one MOmbefr alone gave S10 when called on Iatfall, with a request that If more was needed to call on him again. The society, though poor, having but few wealthy members, Is yet as liberal as other isocieties; and we believe equally so with those who call themselves "outsiders." - Tiny were not Illiberal on thia occasion, but acted, as thr believed, upon princi ples of equity to all. All the damages that have happened the church are the resliU of its being uM a.s a public schoobhousc, . town hall for public shaking, railroad meetings, &c.

A phylcian is at length called, hut to late to save the patient's life. t . ov, can not you seo It would have been better, for frbnJ and physician, if all had been in posesion of that knowledge of tho laws of health by which they could have U termined tlio degree of disability, and sought medi cal aid in time. Again, if u physician Is compelled to practice among those who have no knowledge of the laws which govern their being, he is never safe. Jn one ease, Ida elforts to tave his patient's life may be more than appreciated, while in another instance, ho may do all that Is in human power to'dö, and yet be censured for his apparent want of success. Taking this into consider ation, we occupy the ground the more we disseminate a knowlge of the laws of heatlh, tho better it Is for the people and the physician. Yc need entertain no fcara that any one will gain too much knowledge on this important subject, for the more, the masses of the people are enlight ened on the laws that govern their health, the more will the efforts and labors of the true physician bo appre ciated. We will briefly notice some of the advantages which are derived from a knowledge of, and obedieneo to, physiological law.s. A GOOD X ATL'Jt A , DHVBLOPMCNT. In the lower order of animals tho Creator has supplied our reason by in stinct. This i.s the criterian by which they are governed. It is their infalli ble tutor in all that is necessary for them to do, or knftw. In the human species, the instinct Ive pwer is only partially developed, ! and a great rortion is left to his Intel- lectual faculties; hence the great de mand for him to understand physio logical laws, if lie wishes to be in pos sesion of a "sound mind in a sound bodv." About coital numbers of the acti.msand inclinations of men are Instinctive, while the remainder b iroverned bv volition, or the t.ower nf ! wining. The desire for-fiction is instinctive, but the, nature of the action is govern ed by the will.' To illustrate thoaipe7 tite is instinctive, but its gratification is governed by volition. The capacity for good natural tle velopnient is inherent, but the spoil ing of perfection of character is depen dent on our will, moral ami physical education and customs of life. 1 The claims made by some to resnec- t;ilditv. nobilitv. and fctinerioritv to j i 1 blood, are merely tho results of moral, physical and intellectual training.

Then th tenth chiptcr of Genesis and eleventh vcr-e, where .wo are told of the founda tion of Xineveh, thero h a Utllo doubt about the translation. Oa tho margin you will seo it reads thus: 4'lle (that is Xiinrod, 'vpoken of In the ninth verse,) went out into Assyria and bullded Nineveh," ic. Sounoi suppose the city to'havo been founded by Av shur, wlio was a son of ßhem, and otheri by Nimrod, who was a ron of Cush, atid 4,a mighty hunter before, tho Lord." After this notice of tho building of Nineveh It Is not mentioned again until 2 Kings, 19: 36. Here we are J M that Sennacherib, Kingof Assyria, dwelt there, nnd how he vn slain while worshipping an idol. In Isaiah S7th, the. account is exactly the same. Then Nineveh Is not pokcn of again till the tiine of the prophet Jonah, who was s nt by God to warn the people that their city nhould be destroyed In fortv divs, because of 'their wicked ness. ' ' ; '"Nineveh was nh exceeding great city." Ancient historians tell us that it was nineteen m ilea long and eleven broad, and about sixty miles In cir cumference. Now you will under stand the expression "of three days' journey." A Jewish day's Journey was twenty miles; and it would re quire three such Journeys to travel round the city. It vnn surrounded by walls 100 feet high, and so wide that three chariots could drive abreast upon them. These ' wall wen fortified by 15Ui) towers, each l?l' feet high. In the fourth chapter of Jonah nnd elev enth verso we aro told that there were "moro than fix score thousand per sons" who could not "discern between their right hand and their left hand." Hy these were probably meant the young children of tho city. Now, If thero were l'J.O K) children, you will see that the whole population must nave wp very great; aooui o -u,u,,. Jnto oxeeciliiig great city jonan entered, years before Christ, and "cried and said, 'yet forty days and Nineveh shall be overthrown.' " The people were alarmed and l)eLan to re pent of their fcinvand proclaimed a la.-t,-and put oirsacKCioin, ana mrneu tlllir evil uiio, in the hope that Uvd would turn away his anftcr.and not cause them to perish. And Uod ever kind and - merciful ta-w - their works, and forgave their slus, and did not destroy them.; .,' f .; JI(jwithe prophet was displeased at this, and lmv (od rebuked him, you cau all; roadriu tho last chapter- of Jonah. ,f But .ulas.; ithcy, jeturuel..to their gvil way, agaiu; mid tho next prophet, Nauuui, foretold their de struction. Tho city was; to bo jartly I destroyed by water and partly by tiro.
