That the mind exerts a mysterious and
wonderful oontiol overihe body, must be
obvious lo every one who has observed
the relations of its faculties and aneottons
to physiologisiil phenointua: The elec
trochemical chuncs that occur in the
vital laboratories aie accelerated or re
tarded, are rendered irregular or uniform
by the prevailing states and incidental ex
ercises of the mind, "he most destruc
tive elements in the i.hvsical world, wlion
left to "pnd their whole force on the un-
proteet-U liuman Deity, ere scare iy moie
disastrous in their effects than the mis
directed action of it powers; at the ssmo
lime the hfo forces niuy be augmented
and equalised, and wasting form myste

The writer's views respecting the pow
ir ft the mind over the eleuto-ncrvous
currorits and tho arterial irculaiion, will
r ceive strong confirmation from the fur
th"f examination ol ih eubject To tho
areful obsorver it will be obvious, that
mental and rr oral ('ibtinbiiK es produce
corresponding physical derangements. As
intense love, vto cnt hate, sudden jeuiouey
extromo npircheneion, or any powerful
mental impulse, will instantly interrupt
the vital equilibrium, it lollows that th
most aggravated forms ot disease may
have their origin in the mind. If the in
dividual is more distinguished for vigor
of thought than lor intensity of feeling
the uiibiilance 1 lido of tho circulation
will flow to lliobnin, am! be accompanied
br a strange cerebral excitement and a
flushed countenance. If on the other
hand, the person be characterized by blind
unreasoning passion, the vital torrent
miy rush to the heart, leaving the visiue
pale, and causing an accelerated arterial
aotion. Wot only a momemary lunution-
al derangi-mont is thus produced, but
congestion, puiulysis, insanity and death
often occur in oousequnce of this direct
power ol the mind over ti e oleuiental
principle ami organic a tiun ol the body.

io liiHiira unitorm iieain uuu a pro
tracted eai tidy existence, the corporeal
development should bo commensurate
with tho increasing nioulal activity and
power. Any great disproportion will b
found to bo in. ompatiblu with nionlul and
vital harmony. The capacity and inten
sity of the mind's action is not unfrequcnt-
ly tho cause of increasing physical debil
ity, and a prcmaltiro Dissolution of the
body. Like a powerful engine in a frail
vessel, the luinU shakes tne Blender fabric
in every part. At length is some great
emergency when thest-irms of li 'e break
over ua with tornbo power, culling tot
herculean effort the mind suddenly
breaks away from its frail anil mortal faa
touini'S und the startled voyngor finds him
self beyond the vicissitudes of Time
floating at ease and gracefully in his im-
martil argosy with en Angclatlhu helm
and the great ocoun of the limitless Life
before hi lit.
The iinininte connection of tho mind
with the vital principlo is foroibly illus
trated by innumerable cases of disease and
muny rieuthn, occurring co incidentally
with the previom anticipations ot tho vio

This power of mental action and nsso

effort to drive a man out of his oarthly

Hiysimane and others often speak of
inose who inereiyunry or Mwjin that
they are ill. II they mean that physical
disease in such cases, originates' in the
disordered action of the mind, the writer
has already oxprensed his concurrence;
but if, on the contrary, such forms of ex
pression arc intonded to imply that the
digae, in all similar examples, hateidy
an imaginary (xnienc, I must dispm
the assumption, btcause the terrible forms
of vital derangement are induoed in this
manner and even death suddenly evoked
by the action ot the mind. Many a bum

nervous or billioua attack, ia consequence
having of bia aota protested, Th ratea of

Many persons naveatea oniy uccuusc
they thought their time had oome: Dr.
Geoiire Moore mentions the case of a wo
man who had her dress torn by a dog;
she iniHgin. d that the sniml was rabid,
snd thai the virus had been communica

occurred soon after, and was prceeded
nd accompanied by symptoms of hy

that llio Modioal Faculty could find no
occasion for so much as a technical d's-

ascribed un alfectioii of tha heart, which
finally terminated his life, lo au appre
hension that he had received the poison
into his system, while employed in dissec
ting the body of an individual who had
died of hydrophobia.
The reader has doubtless been lnlwrra-
ed of the nature and the results of au cx-
pei i ent made ou a nun in France who
had been condemnod for a capital offence.

made toai I in tho deception; and under
the impression tha be must inevitably
expire from the loss of blood, ho actual
ly fainldl and died. It is also saidota
man who was doomed to be slid, that he
instantly expired when a numbei of gold
iers at a word discharged blank cat

of a person who died on blcsk, though
tlio executioner's axe fell without disluib-
ing a hair of his head.
During the prevalence of epidemic dis
ease, multitudes doubtless fall victims lo
their own morbid opprel onsions. Moth
inir can i e moro imporiunt under such
circumstances than to create a tew txcile
me it tin the common mind. When the
bl. ck banner of the Destroyer is unfurled
in the sluggiidi a'inospliere ol the doom
ed city, the currents uf thought snd feeling
all lend in one general direction, and they
act with stuiti uir and ler.ible force on
tho public health und tl.e very springs o
life. Ou such an occasion a threatened
invasion, or the schock of'an earthquske
might rheck tlio pestilence nnd save the
lives of thousand. Any event that would
occasion sudden reaction of the uuiver
sal mind would lend to pioduce a vi al
eiiuili rium, nnd heme to change the
electro-chemical and phosiulogical condi
tions to a more normul standard.
The destructive power of the mind is
strikingly exhibited in the results of an ex
periment vilornied, some time since, on
four Russmis who had been condemned
lo death for political offences. Tho rea
der may have soon the, account that orig
liinlly appeared in a London modicsl jour

Funs RgLiKicm. I. Pure religion is
a pjantical thing it calls into exercise the
purest and best affections of the heart.
It transforms its subjects into ihe imacre
ot ineir Divine Master whose life was
life of benevolence and love and will
lead them, like him, to aim constantly at
doing good, as ho came to "savo that
which was lost," and was constantly seek
ing after objects of benevolence so will
every one wearing bia imarre, be disposed
not only to drop a reluctant penny into ihe
urn ol charity as it happens to intrude it
sell in his way, but he will "visit the
fatherless and the widows," seek out ob
ijeiB 01 oenevoienon, mat he mv eniov
the luxury of "lending to the Lord."
Tlio heart that is thus disposed, will show
itself over ready to engage in every good
worn, un an nocasione, when the inter
e.sls of men, whether temporal or spiritual
are concerno ), such a per-on may be ro
lied upon as ready to boar his part in Be
ring or ailvauoing those interests. He
w II never be found knowingly on tho side
of evil; for his religion 'n a religion of
'good will lo mon.
Ho will "keep himself unspotted
trom the world. Ills general deport
ment will corresponded with the state of
heart winch u ludicatod by his bouevo
lence, una reaoii.ces to ao goon. Unlives
bove the World, as it regards its maxims
us vices, or us corruption showing to
all that ihoiigbt ho is "in the world, he
is not of the world," and that hi" af-
f. clions are set on things above, and not
on things on the earth.
J hese two things, in brief, according
to the Apostle James, constitute yenuine
religion, and practical godliness. But
this is not ibe religion of ihe natural
heart, it is a fruit, not of earthly, but of
heavenly origin. Instead ot pandering
to the pride ot man, it most effectually
onfoiees the humb'ing leson "Ye must
be born again." "They that are in the
fl bIi can not plenso God." "Without
1 oliness no mnn shall eoe the Lord."

Certainly, to speak of 'i eing nervom' is
