er has become blended with individual opin- j
ions and the spirit ol dictation become ]>ara
lvaed and powerless. Freedom of thought j
has been planted amid the smoke of battle j
and enriched bv the blood of the purest pat
riotism : it is a right no human authority
can now control; “it is older than the sceptre
of the KiDg or the mitre of the Prelate; it
comes from the hand that moulded an image
of the Divinity from the clay of the young
world and kindling therein a soul as inde
structible a a that had itself gave to it the
universe for a home and an eternity for its
career ; it is the first right of man. As it is
the first right of man, so gov rnmtfnts should
guard and aociety assert it; it is the great
right on which the instttutions of a country
must be based, so that society may not be a
servitude nor government a despotism.
Inspired by these thoughts the world has ad
vanced in all the material interests that give
an impulse to civilization.
Yet, while these great interests have at.
trncted so much of human genius and im
provement, we find that Medicine, until the
days of Thomson’s discovery never advanced
beyond a position where science became
ashamed of its fellowship, and left it to it?
own blind and unintelligible speculations ;
various theories had been propounded in re
gard to the organic-.il sciences. Anatomy
was cultivated with diligence, and many in
stances might be alluded to, illustrating its ‘
progress and development from the days of j
Mondine or Galen down to this hour. If we i
had time we might trace the rudimentary j
doctrine of the circulation of the blood float- *
ing in detached fragments, through the
writings of many eminent men, such as Car
pa and Yesalina, down to the year IP>l9, when
Harvey promulgated the true manner of this
important function, although after the dis
covery nine long years had elapsed before
his doctrines and discovery became known
through a work be published at Frankfort in
1028, and when first announced to the world,
men resisted its endorsement, denied it- 1
truth. Riolan, a Professor at the College t
de France, was oitter in his opposition, and
shut hi* eyes to the light that spreading
o\mr tHo moduvtl world, just as men to-day
are denying the truth of the discovery of
Thomson, while others, forced to acknowl
edge its truth, claimed it us an ancient opin
ion, known even to Hippocrates. The envy
of his brethren wa too much excited to ad
cited U> admit his claims as a discoverer, and
thus endeavored to diminish his praLe by
the announcement of his plajiarisin. Just
as to-day, when the most distinguished Phy
siologists are embracing and endorsing the
therey of Thomson, many claim the dis
covery for themselves, while others resist its
truth and denounce Thomson as its author—
a species of Allopathic consistency that has
lound many a similitude in the history of its
antiquity, authority, practice and principles,
to which I will in proper time invito your

al ideas of respiration and nutrition : that
these great functions were controlled and
sustained by vital agencies, was admitted
from th® very outset of mod cine. No man
had ever denied, in •owe shape or'other, no
matter how vague or foolish his prescrip
tions may be considered, that the functions
of which he knew nothing were sustained by
some vital agency ot which he had not the
very slightest rational conception ; blind in
Anatomy, he wn equally* blind in the laws
of Physiology, and while time and experi
ence brought forth new lights in Anao>y>
that Hippocrates, the most eminent phy
sician of antiquity, might have learned the
distinction bet wet* n a nerve and muscle, front
the veriest tyro ?n Medicine, of the present
day, and studied its discoveries with interest
and instruction. Still Physiology cr the
laws of life necessary to be understood, in
the cure of disease remained still as uncertain
and as obscure to all the genius of antiquity,
and all the experiments, all the labors, ail
the investigations oi the most distinguished
Allopathists from the days of Hippocrates
until the days of Thomson, never learned
and never saw the causes of vital force, nor
understood its manifestations and phenome

A Giiost in the A&tor Lirkaky.—The
Evening Post teils the following story
of a ghost that appeared in the Astor
Library. The Post professes to have
the tale direct from Dr. Cogswell him
self: • ’<■
Some two weeks ago Doctor Cogswell
was at work as usual ou the catalogue of
the Library. It was about eleven o clock
at night, and having ocea>'oii to refer to
some books m a distant part of the libra
ry, lie left, hts desk, took his caudle, and,
as he had often done before, pursued his
course among the winding passages to-
ward the desired spot. But before reach
ing it, while in an alcove in the south
west part of the older portion of the
building, he was startled by seeir.g a mao,
respectably dressed in citizen’s clothes, |
survey ing a shelf of books.
The doctor supposed it tube a robber i
wh< had secreted himself for the purpose i
of abstracting some of the valuable works j
in the library ; after stepping back be- i
hind a partition for a moment, he again
moved cautiously forward, to catch a |
glimpse of the individual’s face, when tu i
his surprise he recognized in the suppos
ed robber the features of a physician
(whose name we forbear giving) who had
lived in the immediate vicinity of the li
brary, and who had died some six weeks
ngo !* It should be borne in mind that
this deceased person was a mere casual
acquaintance of Dr. Cogswell* not au in
timate friehd, and siuee Ins death Dr.
Cogswell had not thought ot him.
Buu the apparition wa- iu the presence
of a man not, easily scared. The libra
rian, so fai iioin fainting or shrieking,
as might reasonably be expected, calmly
addressed the ghost:
Dr.- , ’said he, ‘’you seldom, if
ever, visited this library while living.—
Why do you trouble us now when
Perhaps the ghost did not like the
sound of human voice; any way, it gave
■ no answer, but disappeared.
The m-xt day Dr. Cogswell thought
I over the matter, attributed it to some op
1 deal delusion, and in the evening pro
ceeded w*th h:s work, as usual. Again,
he wished to refer to some books, and
1 again visited the southwestern alcove. —
I There, again, -as large as hie, was the
! ghost, very calmly and placidly survey
-Img the shelves. Mr. Cogswell again
spoke t© it.
! “Dr. said he, “again l ask
| you v. hy you who never visited the li
brary while living, trouble it now when
!dead ’ ’
Again the ghost vanished, and the un
daunted liUrariou pu**M**i wit-U

ami tied the shelves before which the
apparition had been standing, and by a
singular coincidence found tint they were
tided with books devoted to demonology,
witchcraft, magic, spiritualism, .Vc,
* * “ -1„ w.ts these volumes that ap
peared to attract the apparition. The
third night, Dr. Cugsweii again visited
the various b-./uks w iiich he wished to
ruler to, and occasion demanded, did not
lh:l to approach the mysterious alcove.—
There agaiii was the apparition dressed
precisely as before, and with a hand
raised, as il about to take down a book.
Dr. Cogiswtll again spoke—
“Dr —lie said boldly, “This is
the third time ! have met you. Tell me
if auy ol this class of books disturb you ?
if they do, I will have, them removed.’’
But the uugraßfut ghost without ac
knowledging this accommodating spirit
on the. part of its interogatcr, disap
peared. Aor has it been ?ern since,
and the librarian has Continued his night
ly researches without interruption.
A few days ago, at a dinner party at
the house cfa well-known wealthy gen
tleman, Dr- Cogsw ell related the eircum-
stances as above recorded, as nearly as
wc ran learn. As some eight eon or
ffWenfy people were present, the remark
