Thb Art ok Prkachisg ?There is much in common between the tragic actor and tho popular preacher, but while the actor's power is generally the result of a studied elocution, the preacher is almost always native. A teacher of elocution would probably ?-ay that the manner of Cyalmers, Uuthrie.orof Caird was a very bad one; but it suits the man and no other would produce a like impression. In reading the m?,st effective discourses of the greatest preachers we aro invariably disap pointed. W e can see nothing very particular in those quotations from Chalmers which aro recorded as having so overwhelmingly im pressed those who lit.iid them It was man ? 1?: 111 i*?1" Iu i'ilort.' Ra accessory, whie.i in Lngland is almost entirely neglected ii the secret of Scotch effect Nor is it any degradation from un orator's genius to say that his power lies much loss in what he says tnan now he says it. It is saying that hi weapon can be wielded by no other hand than his own. .Manners make the entire difierence between JVlacready and the poorest stroller that murders Shakspearc. The matter is the same in the case of each. Each has the same thing to say, the enormous difference lies in the manner which heeays it The greatest ef fect? recorded to have been produced by things which, in merely reuding them, would not have appeared so very remarkable. Haslitt tells us that nothing eo lingered on his ear as a hue from Home's "Douglass," as spoken by young Betty : ' " And happy in my mind, wax he that died We have heard it said that Macready never produced a greater cffect than by tho very simple words, Who said that !' It is perhai ? a burlesque of an acknowledged fact, to re cord that Whitfield could thrill an audience by saying, Mesopotamia ?? Hugh Miller tells us that ho heaid Chalmers read a piece whi h ho (M.ller) had himself written. It produced the effect of the most telling acting ; and its author never knew how fine it was till then We remember well the feeling which ran through us when we heard Baird say, As we bend over tho grave where the dying are bu rying the dead.' All this is the result of tha' gift of genius ; to feel with the soul, and otter with the whole soul The case of Uavani shows that tremendous energy can carry an audience away, without its undersanding a syllable oi what is said. Inferior men think by loud roaring uud frautic gesticulation, to pro duce that impression which genius alone can produce. But tho counterfeit is wretched ; and with ail intelligent people, the result is derision and disgust ?Frazer's Magazine Wuosa Baby is It??Tho Boston Post has a Paris correspondent, who writes there werj those so given to unbelief in the implicit hon esty of Louis Napoleon as to the credit the rumor that the "sound, live boy" who has been palmed off upon tho Empiro, is nothing but an ursurper, and that he takes tie place of a certain girl baby which was the real heir. Tho aforesaid rumor was to the effect that for Eometime previous to the Empress's accoueh ment, it was well understood that whatever the event might be, a fine healthy boy would bo ready to be presented as the legitimate child of tho Empire. This being so, at once acoounts for the fact of the king ef Algiers being as big at birth as his nurse 's baby at two months old. Pulpit Eloqi ejici.?Tho Appleton Cres cent of the 5th instant contains an elaborate review of a discourse delivered on Sunday, tho 23d of March, by the Rev William J. McDonald. From extracts from this disc* arte given by the Crescent, it appears that the reverend gentleman has beoome weary in his Master's work and turned his hand to that of the partisan stump orator. Our cotemporary does not state whether a eollection of rifles was taken up after the discourse. Science of Medicine?Opinion of Vagendie On u^uming the Professor's chair in the College of France, the celebrated Magendie thus addressed the assembled students : Gentlemen Medicine is a great humbug I know it is called a science?science, indeed' Its nothing like science Doctor* are mere empirics, when they are not charlatans We are ignorant, a." ignorant as men can be Who knows anything in the world about medicine' (Gentlemen, you hare done me the honor to come here to attend my lectures, and I must tell you frankly now. in the beginning, that I know nothing in the world about medicine and I don't know anybody who does kn^w anything about it. Don't think for a moment that I haven't read the bills advertising the course of lecture? at the medical school ; I know that this man teaches anatomy, that inau teaches pathology, another man physi ology, such a one teaches therapeutics. such another materia medica?Eh Men, et anpm ' What's known about that ? Why. gentlemen, at the school of M<jntpelier. (God knows it was famous enough in its day '.) they diecarded the study of anatomy and taught nothing but dispensary, and the doctors educated there knew just as much and were quite as sueces* ful as any others. I repeat it, nobody knows anything about medicine True enough, we are gathering facts every day. We can pro duce typhus fever, fer example, by injecting a certain substance into the veins of a dog ? that's something; we can alleviate diabetes; and, 1 see distinctly we are fast approaching the day when phthisis can be cured as easily as any disease. Wc are collecting facte in the right spirit, aud 1 dare say in a cantury or so the accumulation of facta may enable our suceessora to form a medical science; but I repeat it to you, there is no sucn thing now as a medical science Who can tell me how to euro the headache 7 or the gout ' or disease of the heart? Nobody. Oh! you tell mo doctors cure people. I grant you. people are cured But how are they cured' Gentlemen, nature does a good deal. Imagination does a go ?d deal. Doctorsdo?devilish little?when they don t do harm Let me tell you. gen tlemen, what I did when I was the head phy sician at the Hotel Dicu- Some 3 or 400 pa tients passed through my hands every year. I divided the patients into two classes : with 000 I followed the dispensary, and gave them the usual medicines without having the least idea why or wherefore; to the others 1 gave bread pills and colored water, without of course, letting them know anything about it? and occasionally, gentlemen. I would create a third division, to whom I gave nothing whatever These last would fret a good deal; they would feel they were neglected unless they are well drugged ; (lea imbertles,) and they would irritate themselves until they g?t really sick; but nature invariably came to the rescue, and all the persons in this third class got well. There was a little mortality among those who who received but bread pills anl c dored water, and the mortality was greater among those who were carefully drugged ac cording to the dispensary. You ask, then, what is the use of my lecturing. I 11 tell you. We have come here to study nature, not to spin fine theories about this and that, and anticipate brilliant conclusions?leave that t?? the Germans, gentlemen. 1 don't say theso i-jctrineuires tail to hit occasionally upon some brilliant truth, by the aid of their theo ries?for I have sometimes been astonished by their discoveries?but for once they are right, they are wrong a hundred times, and by their theories they are never sure of know ing assuredly what they do know Now whit 1 know, I kuow. There can be no mistake about it. 1 see it with my eyes 1 touch it with my fingers. I would not give that for all the theories in the world?give me stub born facts That a the way. gentlemen, we are going to study here. Escouxtkb with a Wolf?Some two or three weeks since, days the Cumberland Tele graph. a very large male wolf, driven bv hunger from the mountain forests, made his appearance in the region of country in this county known as the Crossings Forks He commenced his depredation on stock, and be gan to be c >nsiderable of an annoyance to the husbandmen of that locality He kept out of harm's way for several weeks At last a young man named Christian Beachy, who had frequently encountered his tracks in the deep snow, declared his intention to give him ch*?e if ever he came acres.* him when he (Bea'byi was on bis favorite horse?a powerful and swift-fo?ten animal, capable of endurance, and able to withstand the hardship* of a vig orous dash against the unscrupulous invader of sbcepfulds and stock yards. A few days since Be achy, in company with another young man, also mounted, beheld the wolf's track in the snow. It was fresh, apparantly just made, and a pitch for him was at once determined upon. Ibe snow was upwards of two feet deep, but nothing daunted Beacby. on his powerful horse, plunged through it into the forest, followed by his companion, who was unable to keep within hailing distance. The wolf, finding himself pursued, da-bed boldly forward, but the gal lant steed of Beacby, after a rapid chase of half au hour, bore him by the side of the wolf. Springing from his horse, he, beins unj armed, caught the animal by the tail. Thin a battle ensued cf a fierce character. The wolf snapped his chaws in powerful rage, but by constantly jerking him about and admin istering at every favorable opportunity, a powcrtul kick with a heavy boot in the side, he managed to hold on uninjured until the ar rival of his companion, wben the ferocious animal was dispatched with one well-aimed blow from a club. Beachy is a man of great muscular power and courage, and the two combined enabled him to retain his hold upon the wolf until he was dispatched When his companion ar rived be was nearly exhausted. The w.df would not have been so easily cap tured, but having been indiscreet in his young days, he had put one of his fret into a steel trap, and had thereby loet the entire foot tu the first joint. An Editor'a Lir* ?A gentleman who for merly conducted a weekly paper writes to a friend in this coun'ry. who has recently as sumed the charge of a daily paper, as follows; " You must live in and for the paper There is no escape from this voluntary and yet life long slavery F?rnow nearly ten years I have known the willing, voluntary, unbrokeu ser vice which the true servant of a free press must render. My weekly charge has been more than I can bear ; and often, like the slave de scribed with such pathetic eloquence by Job, I have "longed for the shadow ' which tells the hour of rest Feeling thus with respect to the weekly press, how can I but fear for you, my brother, my friend, when you bind your self in six-iold bonds T How little does the majority ot readers of newspapers know of the expenditure of thought, of the labor of the head and brain and hands, which goes to make up that which ministers to iheir highest wants' And also how many truths, thought out with brain throes, pass unnoted, unobserved, even if not received with relentless hostility' Nev ertheless, the true man must work, and work, too, in the martyr spirit, oontented even with the thought that his mere relicts, when he has laid him down in the dust, will constitute a kind of superstructure and basement, upon whi *h the glorious and eternal temple of truth shall stand."
