ever been our luck to attend. Although we
'•took no notes" a brief mention might not be
i:nintcresting to our readers. We started from
home at ft O'clock, and after a very pleasant I
ride, during which tee passed through a rich,
well watered and highly cultivated country, the
esuberAnt vegetation promising it most magnif
irtent harvest, and thee' some very pretty little
towel and villages, we arrived at our destina
tion. The place selected was a beautiful spot
at tie fuot of a noble bill, near the river. Here

As the editor of the Globe, together with the
contemptible scribblers who write his dirty ed•

but to load up the "pop gun" and give them art•

"Skelp and shawl such dogs as these,
And hear them squeal,"
but I consider it my right and duty to defend
joy character, actions and motives, whenever
assailed by envy, slander and malevolence. The
Globe makes an attack on me in the lust issue,
with a sort of Jackass•ltycitanistn, which would
be terrific if it were not so ludicrous, and which
was intended no doubt to annihilate me. Ne•
vertheless "I still live," and am still able to de•

cause I allow no man with impunity to question
my motives or misstate my position, both of
which have been attempted by the Globe, and
this has induced me to correct the misrepresen
tation and resent the injury. If any man will
show mu wherein I have over intentionally
wronged or injured him, in word or action, I
will promptly make the acknowledgment and
olfnr the necessary apology. But whilst not a•
shamed to acknowledge my error when wrong,
I MID nut afraid to detend mysell when falsely,
libelously, and maliciously attacked ; that the
editor of the Globe has done so, I assert, aid
no man has snore richly deserved a rebuke at my
hands, and no man has received it more prompt

call me a "self•coneeited, arrogant pedagogue"
—and there was a time whon the "idle acrib•
ti.ngb" of this same "arrogant pedagogue" wore
very acceptable with the aforesaid editor, and
by no means discreditable to the columns of the
111°1,e—but have any of my charges or asser

argument alluded to? Let us see. In the last

on a certain occasion, and to about as much ,
purpose, to prove that I am not a Christian.—
Now I do not know that I ever asserted
was one, nor do I think it likely that I would
assert for a fact, a matter which admits of such
serious doubts with myself; yet, nevertheless,
I claim to have enough Christianity to prevent
me front slandering and vilifying my neighbor,
without .y pretext whatever; and if he will
read that Book which is the foundation of the
Christian's hope, he will find that "all liars" are
there denounced and condemned also, in far
stronger terms than I have used. lie also
claims to be the author of a certain chaste,
gentlemanly and respectable effort at witticism I
in the shape of an advertisement ; I do not I
know, however, that his claims have been fully
substantiated ; in point of vulgarity, blackguar
distil, and cowardice, it really resembles him,
but that part of it which has evidently drawn
most largely on the imaginative faculties, and
which seems to have been written with the most
spirit is more readily attributable to the eaves
dropping propensities of some one of his petty I
tools, who, when his "fever is up" and hi, via
ion beclouded, sees strange sights and hears
strange sounds, and who might very readily at
such a time have mistaken his own image re- !
fleeted in a glass for that of the animal, ailed- 1
ed to; the resemblance heire so strong that it,
would have 'required no very great stretch of
the imagination ; however, if the editor assures
us that he is the bona fide author, he of course
is entitled to the credit ? but I rely much fear
that the effort on the part of his mental fami
lies has been too strong for hint to survive it.

Dr. !Yardman treats Consumption, Bronchi
tis, Asthma, Larryngittis end all disease; of the
throat mid lungs, fly medical Inhalation, lately
used in the Bromtun Hospital, London. The
great point in the treatment of all b man mala
dies is to get at the disease in the direct man
ner. All medicines are estimated by their ac
tion lit on the t igen requiring teliell
the important fact twit which Inhalation is ba
sed. If the stomach is diseased wo take
medicine directly into this stomach. If the lungs
aro diseased, breathe or inhale medicated va
pors directly into the lungs. Medicines are the
antidotes to disease and s ho u ld ho applied to
the very scat of disease. Inhalation is the np
plication of this principle to the treatment of
the lungs, or it gives us direct access to those
intricate air cells and tidies which lie out of
reach of every other means of administering
medicines. The reason that Consumption, and
other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore re
sisted all treatment has heen because they had
never been approached in a direct manner by
medicine. They were intended to act upon the
lungs and yet were applied to the stomach.—
Their action was intended to be local, and yet,
they were so administered that they should not
act eonstistutionally, expending immediate and
principal action upon the unuttending stomach,
whilst the foul ulcer, within the lungs were un
molested. Inhalation brings the medicine in
direct contact with the disease, without the
di-advantage of any violent action. Its appli
cation is simple, that it can be employed by the
youngest infant or feeblest invalid. It duos not
de n the stomach, or in terfero in the least de
gree with the strength, comfort, or business of
the patient. _ _ .
