Dr. Winship Outdone. --Dr. Winship, the celebrated Massachusetts athlete, who was asserted to be the "strongest man in the world," has met a superior in the person of one William Thompson, who is connected with the Chicago Gymnasium. The test of strength occurred in that city one day last week, at a gymnastic tournament, at which Dr. Winship performed his great muscular feat of lifting nine kegs of nails weighing 1,000 pounds, and raising, with the aid of harness on his shoulders, 1,517 pounds.

Then from the spirit-land a voice Seemed over the soul to flow, Even such as dying fathers breathe When from their homes they go. Mount Vernon's solemn cypress stirred, Responsive to the strain-- "We're brothers all — we're brothers all-- From Mexi
