Remarkable Escapes of Eminent
Some years ago a young man hold
ing a subordinate position in the East
India Company's service twice attemp
ted to deprive himself of life by snap
ping a loaded pistol at his head. Each.
time the pistol missed fire. A friend
entering his room shortly afterwards,
he requested him to fire it out the win
dow; it then went off without any dif
ficulty. Satisfied thus that the weap
on had been-duly primed and loaded,
the young man sprang up, exclaiming
"I must be reserved for something
great ;" and from that moment gave
up the idea of suicide, which-for some
time previous had been uppermost in
his thoughts. The young man after
wards became Lord Clive. Two broth
ers were on one occasion walking to
gether when a violent storm of thun
der and lightning overtook them. One
was struck dead on the spot, the oth
er was spared; else would the name
of the Great Martin Luther, have been
unknown to mankind.
.The holy St.
Augustine, having to preach at a dis
tant town, took with him aguide, who
by some unaccountable means, mistook
the usual road and fell into a by-path.
He afterwards discovered that his ene
mies, had placed themselves in the
proper road with the design of murder
ing. Bacon, the sculptor, when a
tender boy of five years Old, fell into a
pit of a soap-boiler, and must have
perished, had not a workman, just en
tering the yard, observed his head,and
immediately delivered him. When Oli
ver Cromwell was an infant a mon
key snatched him from his cradle,lear
ed with him - through a garret window,
and ran along the leads of the house.
The utmost alarm was excited among
the inmates, and various were the de
vices used to rescue the child from the
guardianship of his newly found pro
tector. All-were unavailing; his would

in despair of over seeing the child alive

deep pond, from drowning in whicl a
clergyman named Johnson was the
sole instrument of his rescue. At the
siege of Leicester a young soldier

when born, was so weakly an infant
it was believed to be dead. A nurse
standing by fancied she saw some
signs of vitality. Thus the feeble spark
of life was saved from being extin
guished, and an eminent author and
consistent Christian preserved to tho
world. John Wesley, when a child
was only just preserved from fire. Al
most the moment after he was rescued
the roof of the house whore he had

the table with his back to the window.
On one particular evening, without,
however, being able to account for it,
he would neither hiniself set in the
chair nor permit any one else to occu
py his place. That very night a bul
let was shot in a window, purposely to
kill him; it grazed the chair in which
ho sat, and made a bole in the foot of
a candlestick on the table. Arany years

In a recent lecture before ono of the
Temperance Societies of New 'York
city, Horace Greeley of the New York
Tribune said :
There is no new truth. All truth is
from the beginning, and it is only er
ror that takes now forms. I shall have
nothing new therefore to entertain
you with, but shall only repeat the
thoughts of those who have previously
addressed you, Or rehearse a few facts
that seem encouraging to those who
labor in the cause of Temperance.
The suggestions of the appetite are
positive and appeal alike, giving every
individual who uses liquor a species of
sensual gratification. Our arguments,
however, reach but few. Nevertheless,
the habit of deep drinking, among ed
ucated and refined persons, is not so,
prevalent as it was formerly. Gentle
men do not now, neither in England
or the Continent, drain bottle after
bottle from dingier until midnight. It
was their common habit to do so; and
they died by scores, at the age of 50
years, of gout and other diseases, caus
ed mainly by drinking, whore now but
few victims aro to be found.
In this fact is to be found the proof
of substantial progress. It is the result
of the Teetotal movement. With or
without our help the sentiment has
moved forward. In New England the
same progress has been made. It was
formerly the common habit of the
smaller farmers to drink- while at their
labor, and the belief was that liquor
was a necessity to those who were
compelled to use great 'muscular exer
tion. I have heard men 50 years of
ago, who had spent their lives upon
their farms, assert that they had never
moved a day without rum. Now this
belief does not exist, and liquor is not
rega'rded as necessary to enable them,
to accomplish their work.
It was also once regarded as a so
cial duty to offer liquor to visitors, just
as when they deemed one hungry they
would offer food. Liquor was even
used at funerals, and on occasions
when it was not produced it was re
garded as evidence of want of respect
for the dead. Joy and sorrow alike
demanded it then; now it is not gen
erally thought of in , connection with
There is nowhere so much drunken
ness as there was formerly, even with
in my early recollection. The Tem
perance movement or something else
By our help or in spite of it there has
been progress among the decent and
respectable classes. There aro still
many who drink very largely, and
quarrels, riots and other crimes that
grow out of the habit, are frequent;
but within 32 years American society
has become comparitively abstemious,
and ifthe progress was only felt among
the members of the Temperance socie
ties there might be danger, but it is
felt in the social condition of all class
es. ' •
It islot,however, sufficient that men
should be temperate. The rumseller
dislikes drunkards, for they injure his
business, and drunkards themselves
will toll you that they love temperance.
Drunkenness is an abuse : temperance,
they say, is drinking to exhiloration,
not to stupidity. I unfold another idea.
In so far as you are at all effected by
alcoholic stimulants; you are poisoned.
Temperance is in using in moderation
what is useful and wholesome,and in ab
staining totally from what is poisonous
and harmful. Intemperance is an ex
cess in the use of wholesome articles,
and any use at all of articles which are
hurtful. Alcohol is pernicious in its
nature, and no man was over intoxica
ted who was . not poisoned.
Alcohol and the vital forces aro
deadly enemies. When it is taken
into the stomach they rally to •expel
the intruder and stimulation, is the re
action caused by the effort on the part
of those formed to rid themselves of
the enemy. Men who drink largely
without getting drunk are injured
more than if they were stimulated:
Drunkenness is one of God's benignant
exhibitions of patience. If you.know
a drinker, pray God that in every case
he be made drunk. It is not intoxica
tion, in any vulgar sense, that We
ought to, dread, but the corruption of
blood and brain which is the result of
drinking. .God pities men who 'will
drink by making them drunk.
The speaker then referred to the
custom of offering wino to New Year's
callers; urging his hearers to refrain
from it in future, and said there was
liberty in taking the pledge, for even
the unprincipled respected principle,
and one who refused to drink on these
grounds would never be tempted.
TaE ANIMAL KINGDP.I.A writer
in the Bound Table; in tracing resem
blances in the animal kingdom says :
"Strolling up Broadway of a pleasant
afternoon wo have met • apes, bulls,
sheep, goats, frogs, doves, wolves, poo
dles, mastiffs, lizards, swans, bears,
mice, leopards, chameleons, eagleS,pigs,
opossums, peacocks, camels, squirrels
and other counterparts of the animal
kingdom, disguised in human forms
and arrayed after the manner of hu
man kind. To ono thoroughly imbu
ed with this branch of physiognomy
the multitude affords a constant study."
Ono of John B. Ciough's stories
was a neat hit at those dilatory people
who are always behind time. Some
ono said to a person of this class, "1
see that you belong to the three-band
ed people." "Three-handed: that's
rather uncommon." "Oh no, common
enough—two hapds like other people
—and a little behind-hand."
lluopm says that printers' ink is the
best friend he ever had. He invested
in it largely by judicious advertising,
and prospered accordingly.

HOW TO HAVE A LOVING WITE.-.A.
correspondent sends the following to
the PIIRENOLOGICIAL JOURNAL If you
wOuld have a loving wife, be as gentle
in your words after as before marriage;
treat her quite as tenderly when a
matron as when a miss ; don't make
her the maid of all work and ask her.
why she looks less tidy and neat than
when you "first knew her;" don't buy
cheap, tough beef, and scold because
it does not come on the table "perter
house ;" don't grum,ble about equaling
babies it you can not afford to keep up,
a "nursery," and remember that"bahy
may take after his papa" in his dispo
sitions; don't smoke and chew tobacco
and thus shatter your nerves, spoil
your temper, and make your lips and
breath a nuisance and complain that
your wife declines to kiss you ; go
home joyous and cheerful to your sup
per and tell your tired wife the good
news you have heard, and not silently
put on your hat and go' out to the
"club" or "lodge,". and let her after
wards learn that you spent the even
ing at the opera or at a fancy ball with
Mrs. Dash. Love your wife; be pa—
tient; remember you are 'not perfect,
but try to be; let whiskey, tobacco,
and vulgar company alone; spend your
evenings with your wife; live a decent,
Christian life,,a.nd 'your wife. will be
loving and true—if you did not marry a
heartless beauty without sense or
worth; ifyou'did, who is to blame if
you suffer the consequences,
HOW TO HAVE A KIND HUSBAND.—A
correspondent of the _Hope Journal
gives a recipe for making or keeping a
good natured husband : "Keep his lin
en in prime condition, with the requis
ite degree of stiffness; never let hint
know the want of a button ; give him
well broiled beefstake, wholesome
bread, and a sparkling cup of coffee
for his 'breakfast;:keep sugalling babies
and broken crockery out of sight ; do
not annoy him with the blunders and
extravagances of "Biddy," greet his
evening arrival with a clean, lightsome
face, well combed hair, and a welcome
kiss ; have ready a cheerful supper, a
bright fire on the grate, an easy chair,
with comfortable gown and slippers ;
be merry, and tell him some agreeable
news; finally, give him a well made
bed in a Cosy chamber."
AVOID SWEARING.—An oath is the
wrath of a perturbed spirit.
'lt is more. A man-of high moral
staarling_iizni,) t er treat an . offenoe
with contempt, than - s . • • •
lion by, uttering an oath..
It is vulgar. Altogether tou low for
a decent man.
It is cowardly. Implying a fear
either of 'not being believed or obeyed.
It is ungentlemanly. A.gentlen3an,
according to Webster, lea genteel man
—well bred and refined.
It is indecent,, offensive to delicacy,
and extremely unfit for human ears.
It is foolish. Want of decency is
want of sense.
It is abusive—to the mind which
conceived the oath, to the tongue
which uttered it and to the person to
whom it is aimed.
It is venomous; showing a man's
heart to be as a nest of vipers, and
every time he swears, one of them
starts out from his head. .
It is contemptible; forfeiting the re
spect of the wise and good.
It is wicked; violating the divine
law, and provoking the displeasure of
Him who will not hold him guiltless
who takes His name in vain.
