A correspondent of the Presbyte rian writing from Ireland speaks of the recent address of Professor TyudnU in Belfast, in which he an nuncc'iTiis elief in laatcrialism. The l!ev. Dr. Watts, Professor of Theology iu the College of Belfast, was a stibhmt of Washington Col- leo-i-, Ya.. about twenty-five years ( " All disguise litis been dropped, and the g-aiuil'.-t thrown down. The alternative is declared;to he between a Cse itor and no Creator, and Dr. Tymlill boldly chose the latter, and addvd th.-u science made the former impossible .

It is well known, however, thai others Isold by them ; and the lecture was ovU denily, tct I'-upuhnn, to thac large class that, with reading taste, Las neither the leisure nor training to test a scientific discourse. Names and popular exposition go far with J uch persons; and probablv tliis fact i induced women to break the silence earlier than might have seemed de ! corous. There is in Aberdeen a young ! Professor of Hebrew in the Free; Church College, endowed with the j common name of Smith, but also ; with the repute of being the most I uncommon man in Scotland. Since; the day of Hugh Binning no chair ; has been filled by one so young. i His learning is "prodigious, and he ' has all has learned at his command. He is eminent in his own depart- ment; but men he is as eminent in mathematics, in physics, in philoso phy, in literature. A hundred sto ries are rife about his universal knowledge. As an associate, he haste, inaccuracy, and incapacity On Sunday evening Dr. 'Watts, Tro lessor of Iheology in the l'resbyte' rian College, Ilellast, preached on the questions started by the addess, to an enormous audience, that flow ed over t lie rjulnit stairs even, and out into the street. Consideriii'T the brief time at his disposal, he he brought out a masterly exposition of the materialistic theory enuncia- ted, an exposure that bristled with (Ton.l nmnts. nn,l did not err on the side of lenity. America has been accused of piratical habits, of a de sire to capture the most famous men of the old world ; but we can grate- fnllv noint to Dr. Watts as a sift received bv Britain trcm America, and no more timely gilt could have oeen bestowed than tin thorough and ready witted theologian. Hu rmdfM'Pil another tinielv service bv ! a paper, read during the meeting an Eirenicon on Science and Relig- ion: and as the scientists flung down their challenge first, he chal lentred Professor Huxley to discuss with him whether animal organ- isms furnish in their structure and action evidence of the existence and operation of an antecedent intelli- gent cause : The Victoria Institute, a young but vigorous and distinctly Chris tian scientific body in London, has since unanimously elected hirn an associate' Some Bad Habits.

Anecdote of Judge Whitman. The old man told the following bit of his experience inrny heading, and he . laughed heartily in the remembrance. - in the other years, when Maine TV as a .District1 of Massachusetts, Ezekiel Whitman was among those chosen to represent the District in the Massachusetts Legislature. He has an eccentric man, and one of the best lawyers of his time. In those days Whitman owned a fapirii, and did much work upon hisdand; and it so happened that when the time came for him to set . out for Boston his best clothes were a euit of homespun. His wife objected 1 to ins going in that, garb, but he did not care. I will get a nice. fashionable suit made as soon as' l .1 reach Boston.' he said. Reaching his destination, Whit man sought rest at Doolittle's City Tavern. Let it be understood that he was a graduate of Harvard, and that at this tavern he was at home. As he entered the parlor of tho Louse, he found several ladies and two or three gentlemen there as sembled, and he heard a ' remark faotn one of the former : 'Ah, here comes a countryman 1 f.f the real homespun genus. There's tun.' Whitman stared at the company, and then sat down. ' S;iy my friend yon are from , the country?' remarked one of (the gentlemen. I ' Ya-as,' answered Ezekiel, with a ludicrous twist ot nistace. The ladies tittered. ' And what do you think of our city ':' 'it's pooty thick-settleu place, It- A A anyhow. It's got aswampin' sight 0 houses in it. ' And a good many people, too.' Ya-as, I should reckon so.' "Many people where you came from?' 'Wal, some.'

'Perhaps the gentleman from the country will take a glass of wine?' ihanlc e Lion t keer it l do. The wine was brought from the ide-board. 'You must drink a toast.'

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 ; if - 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 I have myself tho faith that I can in giving laith obtain a cure, i wiso, j indeed, that physicians who are younger men than myself, and who - ! cases that a cure can be obtained.

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 they; grow updone by one,- to years of maturity. :r Jfi .often, thecaae that, in the cares and bustle of Ims. iness, letters gxojrJnjitTidJmre infretiuen t, ami finadly brothers, and sisters rwill eniii ely lose, sight of each iher. . Tiiese, kindred ties are much tWsacred'to be tnus" lightly severed. It- takes !such a little while! to write a. letter, and the cx penSe its so trifling, that, there can hardly.be an jecuse,. 'for jthe. neg-, lect. i . ' '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 that a letter brought, and could see how its lightest: words wore dwelt over and talked over by the fireside, thev would n-'t be so snaring of i those messages.

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 remained so.

Lil))ldurj News. Books. Books are no doubt very useful helps to knowledge, and in some measure also to the prac tice of useful arts and accomplish ments : but they are not in any case the primary and natural sources of ciuturc, an 1 their virtue is not a little apt to le overrated, even iu those branches of acquirement where they seem most indispensa ble. They are not creative powers in any sense ; they are merely helps, instruments, tools; aud even as tools they aro only artificial tools, superadded to those with which the wio provision of nature has equipp ed u?, like telescopes, an ' micro scopes, whose assistance in many researches reveals unimaglned won ders, but tho use of which should never tempt us to undervalue or to neglect the exercise of our own eve?. folni Stuart Planhk. Fossils of the Departed. A German inventor, Dr. Yon Stein fels, seems to have hit a happy me dium for disposing of tho dead, which is at least free from the ob jections urged against burial, while j it does no violence to the feelings wiiicft naturally surint irom de stroying by fire tltc corpse of a be loved friend. It is proposed to place the body in a sarcophagu.s made of stone, and to pack around the corpse artificial etone or cement in a plas tic state. Tiie latter being allowed to harden, the remains become like a fossail embedded in the soli 1 rock, and, if need he, the deceased finds his grave ari l his monument in one and tiici same mass.

No country possesses such re cuperative powers as the Southern States. Such, however, is the tyranny exerised over them, that they must continue ad infinitum, to be "hewers of wood and drawers ol water" for the Codfish and Shoddy aristoracy of 'he xSorth. Oi'.r "enlightened" brethren of New England would have come to grief long ago were it not for the abund ant resource cf our section of the country. They have grown rich on the profits arising from the sale of Southern products. The protective tariff turned every thing to their interest.
