They so perfectly resemble the natural teeth as not to be dstinguished from the originals by the closest observer; they wfli NEVER CHANGE COLOUR or DECAY, and will be found superior to any teeth ever before used. This method does not require the extraction of roots, or any painful operation, will support and preserve teeth that are loose, and is guaranteed to restore articulation and mastication.

Ik'uianu, Miuiater of Public Instruction and Worship, and addressed to the prefects of departments, with regard to the reception and training of minors in religiousinstitutiona. M. Eouland regrets to find that in many religious establishments children are received and brought up as Roman Catholics without sufficient regard to the wishes of the parents. "If," says M. Rouland, "such a practice were followed with equal ardour by the members of every creed tolerated in France, it would be the cause of the most deplorable disturbances. Therefore, our legislation, as a wise and faithful expression of the ideas and the principles of our epoch, hits made the rights of family supreme, and directed that they shall be universally respected. Neither to priest nor layman ib the privilege conceded of making his own belief a pretext for withdrawing a child from the surveillance and direction of its parents, and the law punishes severely the authors and the accomplices of illegal proselytising of minors, no matter what may be the excuses cr the pretensions of the religious propaganda." The Minister, therefore, directs that the religious congregations in each department shall be warned against an excess of zeal, "as hurtful to religion, ae dangerous to parental right,-' and shall be informed that the reception of children into tiieir institutions, without the consent of parents or guardians, will e-xnose them to severe punishment.

By FORBES WINSLOW, M.D., D.C.L., Os.m. " As interesting as a romance, and fraught with fan deepest interest, as a storehouse of facts hearing upon the brain disorganisation, and as a philosophical exposition of the line and graduated linkh which connect healthy aud disordered minds. ...

Discovery op a Fresco in the Old Chubch of Tubripp.-Every reader, says the Battf Journ^ of Scotch story, is acquainted with the Trot o' Ttirra, and no person could have marched through that ancient burgh of barony without obaerriju near its western boundary, on a height *r�edooking the hollow that opens upon the Dtjreim, tna ruins of its venerable church. Thjs baUding, which was used as a place of worship kill within tile last seventy years, must have had'itB �rigm at� very early period, and it has just been the. rield of a moat rcpuli able discovery. In consegu&nce of the dihtpid�Ud l4at� of the old churchyard wall, Mr, Duncan, JttMjon, Twrifl, and his men were employed to repair it, and by way o� economy, to take, the materials from WbAt ranaina of the old church. Near the spot wherfr the York of demolition was going on, there ha/l been a window at some remote period, but, aloroa; with sefieral othew, It had been built up ai the'tbnei'the ehvnh fell into Presbyterian hands. One side ol window fell along with the ruin, but the, 0v remained intact, and displayed to the/ astonished gaze of the workmen a fresco painting of a mitred abbot, executed in water colours, on the bay of the window. The painting, of which we have been fortunate enough to secure a sketch, was at first sup. posed to be a representation of St. Ninian; bat as mora perfect knowledge of these matters was brought to eia-mination of the figure it was ascertained that the paint-log really represents, not St. Ninian, but St. Conran, the tutelary saiot of the parish of Turriff. ;
