b anything more horrifying to the appre

tible, than the reality t I can never forget
tny boyhood's impressions on this subject.—
They—the thoughts and fancies of a mere
Thad—are living in my memory to this day,
with loathing and terror. I was told of the
practice of the inhabitants of some heathen
lands, who, when their parents hod become
old and burdensome, or when their friends
were hopelessly sick, took them out into the
fields, or by the river's side, and, having dug
a shallow hole in the sand, laid them in, and
covered them under—the old, the wayworn, l
the weary, just ready to die. My fancy p,ic

whole seehe. I .could see s _ bind I can see'

my childish imagination told me, the unreel
ing son had feeling enough to begin at the
feet, leaving the mouth open to breathe, till
all else was covered—the resigned and desL
pairing look that the dim and faded eye cast
upon the grave's bottom ; I could hear the
appalling shriek that arose, struggling up—
the last breath—a thousand condensed into
one of the last agony, and all was still—si

a night in after years, was full of the same

But when they happen alongside of us, in
our midst, and among our acquaintances,
although only by accident ; when we have
seen the-apparently dead body, and follow

when we have gone home and forgotten it,
and been for months afterward merry and

that top many, alas! the following case is
the only one that has happened within my
own knowledge..
The Rev. Mr. E was a man of
singularly 'active mind, and was a consider

that region were often in the habit of ex

professional avocations, 1 always made ex

On wßabbath in August, 18—, intensely,
hot und sultry, he had taken his seat in our
pulpit for the afternoon-service. The pre- •
paraturrserviCes were performed, and he
arose and read his text, and commenced his
'sermon. It was afterwards . remembered by
'ins friends who were present, that 'be seem

of the day, for he was constantly wiping the.
perspiration from hie face. He bad made

howei'er that may lie, one circumstance is
highly remarkable, 1 that the innumerable

and at any other period intense interest and
MVO anxiety would have been excited by
themere probability that I was floating on

future—l was wraps entirely in the past.
" The length of time that was occupied
by this deluge of ideas, or rather the short
ness of time into which they were condens

other wounds, I at length fainted. Now as
I felt sure that the wound in the lungs was
mortal, it will appear obvious that the over
