WASBII0T05, D. C.t 1855. JC7"Tbe late Dr. Chapman of Phila delphia, mourned by many who will lau^h at his wit no more, has left behind him a memory, that will be transmitted through successive generations. His wit was equal to bis skill. It was hard to say which did the patient the most good, and as ho always gave hia best of both at the same time they probably helped each other. Just an it happened when one of the patients revolted at a monstroas dose oi phvsic and said: 44Why, doctor, you don't mean such a dose as this for a gentleman." *4Oh, no," said the doctor, "it fortror/fc ingnvn." And a good langh is often as good as medicine, With b'm the pleasantry was as certain aa the opportunity. Even in extremes it would come out of him. He was walking in the street, and a baker's cart, driven furiously, was about to run him down. The baker reigned up sud denly, and just in time to save the Dpc t?r, who instantly took oft hia hat, and bowing politely, exclaimed, t4You are the beat brtd. man in the town."' Very much against his will the Doctor was made a vestryman in his parish church, and one of his duties was to pass the plate for the contribution at the mor ning service. He preaented it with great politeness and becoming gravity to the gentleman at the head of the pew near est the chancel, who was not disposed to contribute. The faithftil collector, nothing daunted, held the plate before him, aad bowed, as if be would urge him to think the matter over, and con tribute somethirg, and refused to go on till he had seen his silver on his plate. In thia way ha prooeeded down tbe aiale, victimizing every man till he eame to the nearest pew to the door, where sat an aged colored woman. To his surprise ?ha laid down a piece of gold. 4'I>ear me," said the astonished doctor, "You Boat be a Guinea nigger." They never troubled the Doctor to go round with the plate after that.
