which consists. of 1(5 members of the dif

on the most important atlairs of the J'.m
pirc, ptesided over by tho Archduke Reg

strict rule of gradual promotion, wh ich is
kept sacred, and practised in tho civil ami

But this irradual promotion is solely de

Prostrateii. At Boston tho other day,
Dr. Geo. B. Winship, who is said to be tlie
strongest man in tho world, was announo
ed to deliver a lecture. The hall was fill
ed, and the Dr. after having commenced
was seen to tall to the Huor.
He appeared agnin, and again swooned,
when by the advice of physicians he was
dissuaded from attempting to bo on with
his lecture. It is said thn temg taken
from the hall, his heart hud nearly ceased
lo bent. Dr. W. accounts for the unlor
tunate affair on the ground that the at
moshere was close and impure. His friends
however, regard it as caused by the pecu
liarity ofappearingbeforea public audience
lor the first time. Dr. Yv. lias tor several
jears given much attention to the subject
cfphysicial education. He is twenty-five
years of ajre. five feet seven inches in
hiight, and wheighs oae hundred and forty-three
pounds. Ho graduated at Cam
bridge five years ago. He can raise a bar
re. of flour from the floor to his shoulder ;
cat raise himself with either little finger
till his chin is half a foot above it; can
raise 200 pounds with either little finger ;
can put up a dumu neil 01 i - l pounds ; spiring together to secure place anil spoils,
execises daily with two dumb bells weigh-1 by deliberately ignoring all sound princi
ing 100 pounds each ; which ,ho can raise ' pies of Government, and nil enlightened
alttriwtely above his head; can lift with , inspirations of true American statesman
the kand 9iG pounds dead weight, without
the aid of straps or belts of any kind.
Topliam, tho strongest man in England,
could raise 8'K) i,ouiids In the same way ;
and the ceh-biated Belgian giant could lilt
only KK). Dr. W. was prepsred to exhib- i
it all these feats, but tlie unexpected turn ;
which events took prevented it. The,
strongman proved to bean infant.

"Why, I have sat beside a professing

said to the assemblrd guests, 'none of your

have seen her co into the supper room
and eat enough to make swinejhavc gripes
of conscience.fand then come out obese
and panting for breath, made marvellous

and wind up the farce with a pious dis
course on the sin of dunoing. Now, I
think that if she had trrnsportod a por
tion of conscience from her slippers to her
stomach, though she might have an inch
or two less phy lactery, the loss would have
been compensated; by several additional
yards of Christian consistency,"
