A Turtle and Stnnreon Fight
C. S. 8. Hofne,: while fishing re
cently InrFlint river,- G a., was dis
turbed by the continual falling of
some hcavjTIjody in the water. After
listening for some time he coucl tided
that something unusual was going on,
and, seizing his gun, went forward to
investigate. On the opposite side of
tlieriver ihe'saw a1 white object with a
large darjc one attacking it. A boat
beiiigliandy,' he bailel it, and expe
ditiously j and quietly passed over.
He struck the bank alxuit twelve feet
above the cause of disturbance, seiz
ins gnn,j and, as the boat swung
around with the stream, fired at the
head of the dark object. He then
dropped the gon, and as the boat drill
ed he lilted an immense logger-head
turtle into it, after which he pit lied in
the other! object, which proved to be a
large sturgeon. -Before he could re
cross the river, the turtle, which was
only stunned by the bird shot, recov
ered and showed fight. The situation
was lively and interesting. The boat
was leaky, the water deep and swift,
the turtle large, strong and determin
ed on a fight. It advanced with open
mouth, and CuPs gun was empty.
He gave t lifeboat all the impetus pos
sibfc stuck! the paddle in the beast's
mouth, drew a little ienkuife from his
pocket and tried to cut its throat. As
the turtle kept its hold on the paddle,
he succeeded in this after several ef
ed, flourishing the pistol. "Shall I end w af en t0111"?. happened to pass through

eight days, witli no food except bark' from
the bushes which grew within her reach.
The water she drank she dipped from the

search was made for the missing woman, i
A man named Basden residing in Lacka-
Lackawaxen township, aud carried his gun
in the hope of killing some game. As he
was passing along the edge of the swamp
he heard a peculiar moaning noise, He at
lirst thought it was the j moaning of cattle
that might 6e grazing in the woods. He
paid no further attention, and passed on.
Soon the same noise was heard again, this
time more distinctly. He followed in the
direction of the noise, ad was soon in the
very heart of the swamp. He stopped again
to listen furtherwhen, looking to.his right,
he saw an object moving; which he found to
be Mrs. Avery, struggling between life and
death, He attempted to extricate her, but
failed, and was obliged io walk some dis
tance for help. After giving notice to the
nearest neighbors, he returned, accompani
ed by a numiwr of men with a wagon. They
finally succeeded in extricating the woman,
and she was driven to a heighboring house,
andlnedical assistance summoned. Although
Mrs. Avery is yet very weak from the terri
ble ordeal through which she passed, she
will recover. When questioned concerning
her feelings while imprisoned in the mire,
she replied that they were beyond descrip
tion. She had, on the seventh day, given
upaall hope of being rescued alive, but on
the morning of the eighth day she had a
presentiment that help would reach her.
Mr Avery's mind is somewhat impaired by
the terrible struggle between life and death.

I VocIienacJirift, of St. Petersburg, has
an article based upon exhaustive re
searches made byProf. Monassein du
ring the autuniu of 1878, when he ex
amined 222 singers ranging between
the ages of nine and fifty-three. He
laid chief Weight upon the growth and
altsolute circu inference of the chest,
upon the comparative relation of the
latter to the tallness of the subject,
and upon the pneumatometric and
spirometric condition of the singer.
It appears to be an 'ascertained fact
from Dr. Monnassein's experiments
that the relative, and even the abso
lute circumference of chest is greater
among singers than among those who
do not sing, and that it increases with
the growth' and age of the singer. The
j 1)rjlVss1rcven says that singing may be
jdaced physically as the antithesis of
drinking spirituous liquors. The lat
ter hinders while the former promotes.
. The wholesale and wanton destruc
tion of walrus by the whaling-ship
crews in the Arctic ocean, - which has
been going on for some time and is
increasing every year, is likely to re
sult in their practical extermination
unless it is speedily checked. The cap
tain of a New Bedford whaler esti
mates that no less than 30,000 walrus
diave been killed this season, only
about a third bf which were .secured
One of the results of this needless and
useless slaughter is the death through
starvation of niany of the natives of
the Arctic regions, who depend upon
the Walrus for food. In one village
of 200 people all but one man died
last winter, and in other villages from
a third to a half of the population
pcrislied. Some of the whaling ves
sel captains have been humane enough
this year to refrain from killing any
walrus. ; j '

Our London religions papers bring theas
t -Lading inte.ligence that the Lord Chan

exclaims in type:
"Was it right, was it to be endured, that

law of the Church t Was it becoming his
high office thus to cast in his lot with lay
men, often of the ignorant,: fanatical, and
misleading class, who were intruding into
the office of the sacred ministry f"
The irate Canon concludes by reminding
the Lord Chancellor that when even a Jew

, What it is to Believe on Christ. 1st;
It includes the belief that He is what he
claims to be, vi7. the Son of God, or God
manifest in the flesh; the Messiah; the
Prophet, Priest and King of His people, and
therefore the Redeemer of men. This in
volves the recognition or the conviction and
acknowledgement of the truth of His doc-
trines. This faith, tu be genuine, must not
rest merely on external evidence, but oa the

propitiation, on His saying, sanctifying, and
protecting power. , i ;, , ,. . ..i

as faith, butj as its inseparable ailjnct and
necessary effects, adoring love of His person,
Zeal for, His glory, devotion to His service,
and submission to His will. As we cannot
separate in fact, or even in consciousness,
the apprehension of beauty from delight in
it, so we cannot separate from faith in Christ,
love, zeal, devotion and submission. The
want of all these is unbelief. Dr. Charles

Fast Young Men. A young man of fort

Very important one, and ought to work a
great change in the practice. By the gen
eral dissemination' of knowledge throngh
the means of the public press, information
of the occurrence and details of great crimes
had been circulated through all classes' of
the reading Community, and persons other
wise competent as jurors were found in that
way to have formed opinions which, : under
the principles of the common law, rendered
them incompetent to sit in the trial of such
causes. The result was that the reading and
most intelligent portion of the community to
a great axtent had to be excluded from the
trial of offenders against the! law." ! What
the juror rcqnirers under the new law is to
be able to satisfy the Court that he has such
controTover his opinion aud mental opera
tions as will enable him to listen to the evi
dence and determine the case substantially
in the same manner as thorigh no 1 opinion
had previously found a lodgement in his

One of the objects of interest at the pres

London, is a copy of an English newspaper
displayed in a window in the condition it
reached a subscriber in Russia, after passing
through the hands of Russian authorities.
An article on Russia entirely obliterated.
The manner in which tho Russian authori
ties manage these things is wonderfully sim
ple and effectual, They take a printer's rol
ler, covered with printer's ink, and run it
np and down the objectionable columns till
not a word can be deciphered.-'
Some of the Chicago papers are bemoan
ing the fact tliatthe typographical error
still exists One ot them recently wanted
to say "holy of holies," when the type made
it ''baby of babies." which was slightly ri
diculous.. Another said "prairie chicken
citizens of Memphis," instead of "panic
stricken citizens." The same paper explain
ed: that, iistead of saying 'Mr; Brown's
great pugnose,'' it meant to say Mr. Brown's
purpose," as the context would show. That
was about as bad as the New England jour
nsl that made the clergyman's text read "la

U is difficult for us to understand that
men engaged in the little affairs of this poor
unsatisfying life on earth, with at! its petty
concerns and troubles, are what Scripture
reveals to us, heirs of immortality intended
for! heaven, to be made equal to the angels,
and to'dwcll for ever with God. And yet
our Blessed Saviour would not only havens
deeply impressed with this truth ourselves,
and always acting under this impression
but also look upon others in this light as
fellow-heirs of the grace of life. Our Lord's
childhood at once raises the common life of
us all up to heaven. Itaac Williams.
