Healing by Taith.
Dr, Brown Secuard, the eminent
j surgeon, in a lecture delivered in
j New York the other day, said :
j "The cure of any illness which does
not consist in a disorganization of
I the tissues, can often be accomplish-
i ed when the person thinks it can be j balming, which the Egyptians pos
: done. If. we physicians, who sessed to a perfection equalled by
! treat patients every day, had the
i power to make them believe that
i they are to be cured, we would cer-
! tainly obtain less fee3 than wc do,
and I must say that the best of us
I would reioice at it. 1 here is no
- doubt at all that if we could give to
j patients the idea that they are to be
cured, they would often be cured, ;
i especially it we could name a time
I for it, which is a great element in
more now than formerly, because 1

Keep up Family Attachment.
One of the saddest things about
a large family who have lived hap
pily together for .years under , the
old roof-tree, is the scattering to
distant h"6rie?,rwhich takes place as

of maturity. :r Jfi .often, thecaae

much tWsacred'to be tnus" lightly

while! to write a. letter, and the cx
penSe its so trifling, that, there can
hardly.be an jecuse,. 'for jthe. neg-,

'A loving family cifcld, than widely-severed,
adopted a curious but
beautiful plan for keeping informed
of encu!a others welfare. The two
most remote,, on the first of. each
month, write a part of a p.igc on a.
large sheet, containing the princN
pal news of the month, 'and this is
forwarded to the family next in
order. . Some member of the house
hold adds a little contribution, and
sends it on to the nest, and so on
'cill the circle is complete. Thus
the family circle goc. it rmnds
twelve times a year, and each one
is kept well-informed of the 3 or?,
sorrows, plans and pursuits ol tne
others. Family gatherings aro fre
quent in such households, and the
home attachments never grow cold.
Sons in particular, away from
home, are apt to grow very neglect
ful of letter-writing. Oh, if they
knew how many heart-aches such
neglect often causes to the loving
breast that pillowed their tired
heads in childhood, they would not
be so thoughtless. If they the joy

It was only in 1720 that mahog
any was first employed in England
for cabinet furniture. Its orgin is
thus related: " Dr. Gibbons, an
eminent physician, having had some
planks of this wood given to him
by his brother, a West India cap
tain, who had brought them in his
vessel as ballast, wished to use
them for a house he was building :
but the carpenters complained that
the. wood' was . too . .hjtrd. It was
therefore laid aside a - useless.
Soon after Mrs, Gibbons wanted a
candle-box, and the Doctor called
in his" cabinet maker to
make him one of this wood, then '
lying in his garden. He also de
e'.ared that it was too hard. The
Doctor said he must get stronger
tools. The candle-box was com
pleted and approved, insomuch that
the Doctar insisted upon having a
bureau made of the same w ood, and
when finished, tho fine color, the
polish, etc., were so stricking, that
he invited his friends to come and
see it. Among them was ' the
Dutchess of Buckingham, who was
so pleased, that she had a bureau
from the same wood, which speedi-
ly became fashionable among the
I higher classes, and has ever since
