ough it be true, as it often practically is, that the fall has reversed this order of things, and placed the wife at the head of affairs, still the doctrine of headship, the doctrine of inequality, prevails in the one case as in the other. It is not amiss, however, to remark in passing, that even so great and humble a man as the Apostle Paul preferred the old-fashioned doctrine: he insists that we observe the original order of things : I suffer not a woman to usurp authority over the man ; 1 Tim. II. 12; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. 1 Cor. XIV. 34. As to other points in this dogma, they have been already treated. We only add that philosophy, no less than religion and true patriotism, cannot fail to regret that a dogma setting each of their claims aside, and teaching the purest agrarianism, and that under the most deadly form — the form of pure abstract truth--should have found its way into that immortal instrument, the Declaration of Ameri

e period; whilst bond servant is one who has either contracted to do so through his whole life, or who, by the usages of war, or by inheritance, or by purchase from another, was so bound to service--(such as Paul calls a servant under the yoke. 2 Tim. VI. 1.) These different relations are distinctly marked by the use of these terms in the Bible, and especially the meaning of bond servant, in distinction from a hired servant: If thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto stic slaves. And in all this time, and under all these circumstances, not a word is known to have escaped him, either in public or in private, declaring the relation of master and slave to be sinful! But, on the contrary, Paul's denunciation.--1 Tim. VI. 3--of the theachers of abolition doctrines, that they consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, is sufficient reason to believe that he was always understood to approve of the relation, and to condemn in express

ystem of slavery has undergone within late years a comparison of the menials of the free and of the slave States, and the only plan of emancipation admissible the gospel the only remedy for the evils of slavery Paul's philosophy and practice, 1 Tim. VI. 1-5. immediate emancipation is the scheme of the abolitionists proper, whilst gradual emancipation is the favorite plan of the anti-slavery party, The ground we should take is this, that no plan of emancipation, either immediate or gradualions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil-surmisings, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness. The whole paragraph from which this quotation is made--1 Tim. VI. 1-5--is commended to particular attention. And I submit, that if the apostle understood the subject of domestic slavery, either as a philosophical or a practical question, the class of men now engaged in agitating our country on the subject
ons; married 359 couples; admitted to the church 304 communicants; and officiated at 990 funerals. Every arrangement for a public funeral which respect for their venerable pastor could suggest was made by the town; and their Committee for the occasion were Messrs. Abner Bartlett, Jonathan Brooks, Thatcher Magoun, Turell Tufts, and Dudley Hall. The funeral services were on Saturday, Dec. 14. The prayer was offered by President Kirkland ; and the sermon preached by Dr. Abiel Holmes, from 2 Tim. IV. 6, 7. The pall-bearers were the Rev. Drs. Kirkland and Holmes, of Cambridge; Ripley, of Concord; Foster, of Brighton; Fiske, of West Cambridge ; and Homer, of Newton. The wife of Dr. Osgood died Jan. 7, 1818, aged seventy, and left behind the memorial of an amiable, intelligent, and pious woman. The memory of the just is blessed. The incidents in the history of Dr. Osgood, not mentioned in the memoir, are few and unimportant. Among those of historic interest are the following:-
Medford, for four hundred and four pounds sterling, which he owned at the time of his death. His farm in Medford was bought of Edward Collins, and thus probably a part of the great Cradock estate. He sold his farm in Concord, Oct. 22, 1664; and he died there, May 21, 1667. His wife was Grace----, who died May 12, 1664. His children were--  1-2Joshua, b. freeman, 1652; m. Han.

He removed to Medford, where he inherited some land lying east from the Wear Bridge. His house was situated about mid-way between the bridge and the Lowell Railroad, immediately in front of the Woburn Road. It was torn down, in 1779, by his great-grandson, Samuel. He died July

dollars in money. They were about to take these from him, when Webster inquired: Who was the man who arrested me this morning? His name is McPhail, and he belongs to the secret service, was the reply. At the mention of the name, Webster started in surprise. He had heard of him as connected with my force, and knew that everything would soon be all right. Well, said Webster, will you be kind enough to send for Mr. McPhail, and ask him to telegraph to Major Allen, and inquire if Tim is all right? What Major Allen is that? asked the officer. Of the secret service, replied Webster. McPhail will know all about him; and you will learn that I am no rebel, in a very short time. We will do what you request, said the officer, and if you are all right, we will be glad to find it out. Thanking the officer for his kindness, Webster was conducted back to his cell to await developments. About ten o'clock that night, the officer again made his appearance. John Ha
