frequent and lasting notice, not' only in this

Catholic Principles ;" which created such an
excitement among the advocates of close commu

fully; his views respecting the. Working of the
Theological Seminary with which he was so long
connected; "Essays on the Use of the Lot ;"
" Essays on the Church ;" being a Scriptural and

Ties WORTS OF Fromm BACON, Lord Chancellor
of England. With a Life of the Author, by
Basil Montague, Big. In three volumes, im
perial BvO. Vol. IL, pp. 689 Vol. 111., pp.
684. Philadelphia : Parry t McMillan. 1859.
We have already referred to the valbe of this
edition of *the life and writings of the great
English Philosopher, in which the Latin works
are translated, and the whole comprised in three
volumeb, instead of seventeen, as in the ease of
the London Edition.
The influence of Bacon on the progress of
knowledge, can scarcely be over estimated.
During the reign of philosophy in Greeee, a
spirit of dogmatism pervadedlhe systems of all
the great masters, and the tendency to reason in
this manner had continued down to Bacon's day.
In this respect, a wonderful similarity exists
between Greece and Germany. Instead of an
attempt at collecting a number of facts, and
deducing such conclusions from them as their
relations to each other and to surrounding facts
would seem to warrant, the policy among the
Greeks was to start. with a dogma. The effort,
then, was to reduce all things into harmony with
this fundamental proposition. Ere long, a re
flective mind discovered certain things that
would not harmonize, and he in his turn pro
pounded a dogma which he believed to be more
elementary and comprehensive, and thus he
became the founder of a new echool, and the
leader of a new Beet. The tendency of the
German mind is decidedly Greek• and anti-
Baconian, and hence the rapid uprising and
falling again of systems, among German thinkers.
We are now so thoroughly accustomed to the
system of inductiiih, that we can scarcely appre=
ciate the value of the principle which, like the
principle of gravitation, seems to be of such wide
and certain application. We have, therefore,
great pleasure in bringing before our readers the
works of this great master of philosophy, who in
his own day was under-valued, and who,' in the
process of two centuries, came to be an authority
even among ordinary readers. Like Milton,
Bacon had no honor in' his own time. The .
resemblance, in one respect, holds goad, but the
causes were different.. The ,world, at any time,
should appreciate good poetry ; but however
solid the Puritans of Milton's day were in the
elegy, they certainly displayed but a scant regard
for the Muses. With Bacon, howe'ver, the main
cause of the men' of generation not appro.;
elating his genius, is to , be found in the fact that
they had not time to perceive the enormous rang*
of the circuit over which his inductive principles
would travel, and how totally they would come
to influence the modes of human thought. Thus
it has come to'pass that his monument is becoming
loftier, as time flows onward, instead of being
disintegrated by the lapse of ages. .•
We particularly oommssid this great storehouse
of thoug4 t y o studenta,,pt4 all young men who
desire to become solid.tbinkers and real actiolitrs.
We hope c fhat this edition May soon be exhausted,
and that the intelligence of our age may by indi
cated from' their 'regard for these inagnificept
volumes. , . y.

The name of Havelock is associated ' with all
that is distinguished in military bravery, and all
that is earnest in devoted piety. He waa indebted
to birth, fortune, and favor, for nothing. But
when England's power in India wae almost gone, he,
was found to be the man for the time and the
occasion ; and in concession to the demand of all
men, the rank and the honors so long withheld,
were crowded upon him. , And, when his death
was announced, a consternation incapable of
being expressed, pervaded the army ; England
wept ad ate had not done in these later days; Nand
even in the port of New York, the flags of the
shipping hung at half-mast—thus manifesting a
respect never before shown toward the memory
of any potentate or chieftain of the Old World.
But his crowning distinction was hie rectitude of
character, his - consistent piety, and his glowing
love to his Saviour, to which everything else was

In the preparation of this velume, the author

the histories thai 'have • been written of the vs
fleas campaigns in which Havelock was engaged
the official papers from India; the articles in the

aid directly from Havelock's friends, and, from
persons resident in India. It is a military biogra

character of the subject is brought Out: •Mr--
Headley is well known from his previous works,
but the style of the present Work eiceW that of
any of the others. There is less of exaggeration
and intenseness, while at the .same, time there is, •
more of calmness of manner and directness of
statement. The book contains much information
concerning the war in Afghanistan. and . Burmah
as well 'as 'in India, and also of the principal
actors in those terrible 'acmes. The characters
are well drawn, and the battles pass before us to
living and awful realities. And the desriptions

massacre at (lawnpore, and of the defence and
relief of Lucknow, are thrilling word-pictures.-

Two country lads came at an early hour
to a market town, and arranging teir. little,
stands, sit down to wait for customers.
One was furnished, with`fruits and vegetables
of the boy's own raising, and the other sup

on Harry's stand, when a, gentleman came
by, and placing his band upon it, said :
"What a 'fine large melon ; I think I must
have this for my dinner. • What do you ask
for it, my boy ?'
" The melon is the, last I have, sir; and
though it' looks very fair, there is an un:
sound spot on the other side," said the boy,
turning it over.
"So there is," said the man; "I think I
will not take it. But," he added, looking
into the boy's fine open countenance," "is
it very business.like to point out the defects
of your fruits to customers?"
"It is better than beim?_ dishonest,.sir,"
said the boy, modestly.
" You are right, my little fellow; always
remember that principle, and you will find
favor with. God, and man also. You have
nothing else I wish for this morning, but
shall remember your little stand in future.

them myself,': was the reply; and a purchase
being madei the gentleman went away.

SPECIFICS FOR CONSUMPTION.
SYRUP OF THE HYPOPHOSPHITES,
Composed of the yypophosphites of Lime,
Soda, Potassa, and Iron.
These remedi:s were brought to notice by Dr. .Tohn
Francis Churchill, an eminent physician of Dublin, and
have attracted much attention from the medical profession.
To give a general idea of their amtion, we make the follow
ing extracts from Dr. Churchill's Parer On the Proximate
Cause and Specific Remedy of Tuberculosis," read before
the Academy of Medicine, Parte, July, 1857. Says Dr. C.:—
"The total number of cases of Phthiais treated by me
amounts to thirty-five. All were mther in the second or
third stages of the complaint; that is, they had either
softened tubercles or cavities in the lungs: of 'Leese, nine
recovered completely, the physical signs of the disease dis.
appearing altogether in eight out of that number; eleven
improved considerably, and fourteen died. The results
will be found to justify the following conclusions:
"The proximate cause, or at all events an essential con
dition of the tubercular diathesis. is the decrease in the
system of the phosphorus which it contains in an oxygeni
".The specific remedy of the diocese consists in the use of
a preparation of phosphorus, uniting the two conditione„
being in such a state that it may be directly assimilated,
and at the same time at the lowest pomade degree of oxy
” The effects of these salts upon the tubercular diathesis
is immediate ; all the general symptoms of the disease dis
appearing with a rapidity which Is really marvelous. If
the pathological deposit produced by the dyscracy ik3 of re
cent formation, if softening has only just eat in, and does
not proceed too rapidly, the tubercles are re-absorbed and
disappear. When the softening has attained a certain de
gree, it sometimes continues in spite of the treatment; and
the Issue of the disease then depends , upon an anatomical
condition of the local lesion, on its extent, and upon the
existence or non-existence of- complications. I have made
numerous attempts to modify the local condition of the
lungs by the inhalation of different substances, but have
never obtained any satisfactory result independent of what
wee to be attributed to the specific treatment. The Hypo

have a two-fold action; on the one hand they illfiVliee the

The success of this treatment being so much in advance
of anything before attained In the management of this
