`,An interesting case has recently come be
fore the Supreme Court of Massachusetts:lt
Salem, in which the validity of •a Rill was
sought to be impeached on accountof singu
lar mental deinsions, amounting to insanity,
which influenced the testator, one Obed
Woodbury, who had devised his property to
certain cousins, cutting off the heirs at law,
who were a nephew and -niece. Zebulon '
•Woodbury and Mrs. Elizabeth Ludden, chil
',dren•of a deceased brother. The latter con
tested the will, end showed on the trial that
the deceased had, until within a veer, ex
pressed his intention to leave his property
to them, and that, for many years, he had
been of an unusually weak and superstitious
turn of mind.
Some of the deltutionstby.ueitichAte:wat ,

Lea John Russel has hitely delVveredzan
address in Exeter Hall, London, and ,- we
take-thelollowing extract from - the'fitlr!re
port of it in the London Times:
Young men in these days, and, for itiiiht
we knot-, in all ages, expdet
and religions progress mationot only easy,,
bat pleasurable, triumphant, and - ingeniOa
I—dignified with theories and sweetened
! with indulgence. They want a royal" rdrul
improvement—a wide road, a pleasant 1 . .41 .
anditot very tedious. So Lord - John IttTS
sel does not hesitate to disabuse them;'
he gives them the stern old advice that the
only way is to be found in good habits.—
Bad passions and vicious inclinations, in
one form or another, arc the real iilistaeles
to progress, and they are powe.rfril
Strong restraint is necessary to subdue
them, and that restraint is to be fonnil ttlY
in morality and n good teacher. Good mor
al habits are the very sinews of the frame,
whether that frame be of one mind or of all
society. They arc the liber,that-nz .? kesjie
Cry muscles, that forms our solid consist
ency, that gites us working, power and
makes us true men. All the talk in the
world goes for nothing if it dues net t end . in
good moral habits, the want of, which is
sure to make a clever man afoul, wise, re
forms nugatory, and a great nation profli
gate and corrupt. Let Heaven scud good
harvests: let our cities resound withal° hunt
of factories and the traffic of streets; let the
earth be covered with our railways, and the
ocean with our ships; but let the salt
be wanting—let luxury spoil the rich, and
intemperance degrade the poor: let
be set against emit other: let the moral '
sense be once blunted by bad habits, and
then all that should have been for our
wealth becomes an occasion for falling, and
harvests, cities, factories, railways, ships,
art, science, everything on which we were
lately boasting ourselves, passes over like a
traitor to the camp of destruction, and ob.
streets that moral and political progress of
which it seemed to be the chief means. Tin
morality, whether public or private is the
one source of mischief, and Lord John Ilus
sell has real a good lesson to a self-flatter
ing and self-indulgent generation, when he
points out that nothing is to be done and no
progress made, without good moral habits.
Whether all the young men who heard him
last night thought this more than so much
sermonizing, we know not, but if they live
long enough they will find it all true, to
their pleasure or their cost.
