Raising the Dead. J- A few nights ago a medical friend of ours was quietly sitting down in his office after the cares and fatigues of the day, enveloped in a capacious dressing-gown and puffing away at: a highly perfumed cigaij, and meditating upon the mutability of human affairs, when he heard voices in the street and soon a knocking at his door. Leisurely getting up and opening it, he discovered three men, two of them in very thick coats, with round glared caps upon their heads," and clubs in their hands, and the third, who was supported ' between them, was in apparently a dying condition, groaning out, '¦ Oh! I'm killed, I'm killed!" " Docther," exclaimed one of the watchmen, l; this man says he's kilt, and we want you to examine him and see if his story is correct or no.'-' '¦ Oh, I'm sure I'm killed," said the man. uIf you're sure of it, what'ud you be seeing the docther an' asking him questioas for!" said the watchman.

Going to law. / ! Going to law is another word for going to jruin; as'few get into courts without getting intd ' iiebt. In rare cases persons go to law from nefcessityj; but usually anger, or pride, or some other passion has a°hand in it. Men quarrel about a claim, or get vexed at not promptly receiving a debt, and without waiting till their exasperation coolsj plunge into a law suit. We do not know where we have seen a better illustration of this than in the following little story, which is so true to human nature that most persons can see themselves in it as in & mirror. : . i , There was a certain lawyer, to whom, one day, a client came in a violent rage.

Labor. tabor is the command of Deity. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, was the dictate of the Great Being to all mankind, and, therefore, idleness is disobedience to God. Happiness, and prosperity attend the footsteps of the industrious man. He is contented while employed. His bodily health and strength are improved. His senses are awakened to the enjoyment of rational pleasures. His meals are seasoned with the sauce of the Spartan laborer, and when he reposes his weary limbs at night, his sleep is sweet and refreshing. Thus it is that the command of the Almighty exhibits his wisdom and benevolence. But there is a point beyond which man ought not to go. There is a time for labor, and a time when the craft should be called off for refreshment and relaxation. Labor has, however, always been subject to capital. The desire to reap large profits blinds men to the inhumanity which they practice towards their fellowman. Old men and maidens, young men and chit" drcn, h...

Plain and Pithy Remarks of" Old Ilumphery of Fits. Although no doctor, I have by me some excellent prescriptions, and as I shall charge you nothing for them, you cannot grumble at the price. We are most of us subject to fits; I am visited with them myself, and I dare say that you- are also; now then for my prescriptions:— For a fit of passion, walk out in the open air : you may speak your mind to the winds without hurting any one, or proclaiming yourself to be a simpleton. For a fit of idleness, count the tickings of a clock. Do this for one hour, and you will be glad to pull off your coat the next, and work like a negro. For a fit of extravagance and folly, go to the workhouse, or speak with the ragged and wretched inmates of the jail, and you will be convinced, Who makes his bed of briar and thorn, Must be content to lie forlorn. For a fit of ambition, go into the churchyaid and read the ^gravestones: they will tell you the end of ambition. The grave will soon be your bedcha...

Ablution. A duty somewhat too strictly inculcated in the Madometan ritual, and sometimes too laxlyjobserved in Christian practice. As a man may have a dirty body and an undefiled mind^so-may he have clean hands in a literal, and not in a metaphorical sense. AH washes and cosmetics without, he may yet labor under a moral hydrophobia within.— Pleasant to sec an im-puritan of this stamp holding his nose, lest the wind should come between an honest scavenger and his gentility, while his own character stinks in the public nostrils! Oh, if the money and the pains that we bestow) upon perfumes arid adornments for the body, werciapplied to the purification and embellishment of the mind! Oh, if we were as careful to polish our manners-as our teeth, to make our temper asffiweet as our breath, to cut off our peccadilloes as tb pare our nails, to be as upright in character as in per son, to save our souls as to shave our chinsj what an immaculate race should we become! l£xteriorly, we a...

Prayer. Go when the morning shineth, Go when the noon is bright, Go when the eve declineth, Go in the hush of night; Go with pure mind and feeling, Fling earthly thoughts away, And in thy chamber kneeling, Do thou in secret pray. Remember all who love thee, All who are loved by thee, Pray for those who hate thee, If any such there be. Then for thyself in meekness, , A blessing humbly claim, And link with each petition ; Thy^Great Redeemer's name. Or if 'tis e'er denied thee In solitude to '>ray, Should holy thoughts come o'er thee When friends are round thy way ; E'en then the silent breathing Of thy spirit raised above, Will reach His throne of glory, Who is Mercy, Truth and Love. Oh*! not a joy ot blessing, With this can we compare, The power that has given us, To pour out our souls in prayer! When thou pin'st in sadness, Before his footstool fall, And remember in thy gladness, His grace who give thee all.
