Calling of the roll was next in order,
after which the Committee on Ways and
Means was aken for their report. Pr
Bobbins, the chairman, stated they had
no report to make.
Dr. Livingston, in absence of the
chairman of Foreign Correspondence,
asked further time to report.
The Publication Committee was not
ready to report, and asked further time,
which wa' granted.
Dr. Hershy, chairman of the Com
mittee on Grievances, asked further
time, which was allowed.
Pr. Hershy, chairman of the Commit
tee on Surgery, asked further time,
which was granted.
At this point a discission arose ou a
report just received from Pr. Mercer,
of the Committee on Publication, in
which he stated that there was not mon
ey enough in the treasury to pay for the
printing of the last anual report, but if
the amount that was outstanding and
due the society could be collected there
would be a balance on hand, and a-ked
that the society take some action in re
gard to the manner of collecting it. The
further considerat on of the matter was
postponed until to-morrow.
The medical bill of Rosewatcr tiifti !
came up for dicusiji). and was con-j
demned in the severest terms by Pr.
Bowen. He sa d that the physicians i
should all get a copy of it and post it i j i
their offices and treat it with scorn an J
coutempt, and shov: the legislature that
this society did uot recognise their au
thority to make laws to govern their
Prs. Livingston and Tilden also spoke
in stro lg terms agiinst it.
A motion prevailed that a committee
of two be appointed to procure a fopy of
the Rosewater bill and bring it to the
meeting thi3 evening. Prs. Tilden and
Livingston were appointed on the com
mittee. '
Pr. Black, the delegate appointed to
goto the oieetiug of the Aiaericau Medi
cal Association, held at San Francisco,
Cab, last month, made a very interest
ing report, which was received and or
dered placed on the records of tho so
ciety. The following resolution was presented
for the action of the society by Pr. 1 ea
body and was unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That this Society deem the
action of the Hon. Commissioner or Pen
sions, in expunging from the rod ot
United States Pension Examiners all
homeopathy and other irregular practi
tioners, as highly commendable an J in
t ie best interest of the publio service ;
for the nromotion of the best interests
- mr , re- i- 1
of the bureau, and anoraing ire peu-,
sieim the benefit cf the wot skilled ad- j
vice. And it is earnestly hoped that the
Government will not disregard the de
liberate and expressed conviction cf the
whole legitimate medical profession of
this country by appointing to medical
position or office a class of men whose
practice is not based on experience and
observation, the only true groundwork
of medical pi ogress, but upon arbitrary
di.ta, uot verified alter nearly a century
of trial, and which are wholly opposed
to the ordinary exposition of the natural
laws of physical science.
Resolved, That our Senators and Rep
resentatives be requested to oppose the
passage of any bill that may be brought
before them, rendering homeopaths eli
gible as surgeons.
Resolved, That the Secretary of this
Society be requested to transmit a copy
of these resolutions to the Secretary of
the Interior, the Commissioner of Pen
sions, and to our Senators and Representatives-
The meeting then adjourned, to meet
at the Cipitol, in the Senate chamber,
at 8 o'clock p. in.
The evening session of the meeting
was called to order by tho President.
The committee on the Ro-ewater bill
produced the original, and it was read by
the Secretary.
Pr. Livingston condemned the bill as
being one of the grossest outrages ever
perpetrated on the medical profession
cited the bare idea of a physician who
was a graduate of a medical college hav
ing to go before a set or couuty commis
sioners and ask for a license to practice,
ari l to be examined by them to tee
whether they were tit to practice.
Pr. Tilden said that this bill was a
humbug and a disgrace to the legisla
ture ; that it was not at all like the
original bill; that the original was a
meritorious one, and should have passed.
Pr. Black said the bill was a perfect
farce, and he did not believe in discuss
ing it at all.
Pr. Fuller said that the bill now had
uot a meritorious section in it.
Pr Peabody made a 11 sorts of fun of the
bill, said that ic had only pa-sed so as to
satisfy "Roscy ;" thattione of the mem
bers had any idea that it would ever
amount to anything. He then offered
the following resolution:
Revived, That this Society earnestly
request the repeal of the bill regulating
the practice of medicine and surgery in
Nebraska, which was pa-st at the last
session of the Legislature, which we con
sider an insult to ihe profession of medi
cine. 'I here was u good deal of objection
made to this resolution, but the Doctor
supported it very strongly, and wound
up ty teiling a 6tory about Well, Poc
tor, we won't say. anything about that
story this time.
Pr. Coffman, Chairman of the Com
mittee on Obstetric, said he had no re
port to make. (If hi could have found
Rose water he could have furnished him
Pr. Peabody, Chairman of the Cotu
mitte ou Materia Medica, read a verv
interesting rp . t. which was received
and pbced on the records.
Pr. Livingston, from the Special Com
mittee on the Plea of I.i au.ty, then
read a re:.rt on this subject, which was
iccived and ordered pl .ced on the re
cords. Pr. Tilden offered the following reso
lution which was adopted :
Resolved, 'that a committee of three
bj appointed by the chair to prepare and
present to the next Legislature a bill
embracing the doctrines set forth in the
article of Pr. Livingston, and recom
mended that they do cause the same to
become a law of the State.
The meeting adjourned at 10 o'clock
until to-morrow morning at y a. ui., June 7th The morn
ing sc.-sion opened in the Senate Cham
ber, with Pr Lar.-h iti the chair. After
roll call Pr. Hershey, chairman of the
Committee on Surgery, read a very in
teresting report, which was received and
entered on the records of the society.
Pr. Coffiuan then read a communica
tion on obstetrics, from Pr. Miller, of
Bellevue, which was a very interesting
case, but was not full enough to satisfy
tho meeting, and was referred back to
Pr. Miller for a more extended report,
to be furnished to this society at their
next meeting.
The subject of the Ro.-ewater bill was
again trough t up. Pr. Black said that
the original bill introduced by Pr. Rose
water was not like this. The following
resolution was offered bv Pr. Tilden :
Resolved, That Senator Hascall be re
quested to make an effort to secure the
repeal of an act to regulate the practice
of medicine and surgery in the State of
Nebra-ka, approved during the present
session, which was adopted.

very small, not more than one-half of
members being present; but those who
are here are all line looking aud intelli
gent gentlemen. They take hold of
whatever conies up flr con-i.leration in a
manner which shows that they are mas

of the best physicians in the State pres

rest in the meeting. Manv of them ex
press regret at the absence of Pr. Geo.

The Society will adjourn th;s evening.
This afternoon they are to be taken in
carriages around the city and will be

Influence of Temper on t5f Vlce.
The influence of temper upon tone
deserves much consideration Habits of
querulousness, or iil-tiature, will commu
nicate a cat-like quality to the singing,
as infallibly as they give a quality to
the speaking voice. That there really
exit amiable tones is not an unfounded
opinion. In the voice there is no de
ception ; it is, to many, the index to the
; may be remarked, that thj low, soft
luinu, ueiioiing moral qualities ; and it
tunes oi jreni:e ana amiaoie beinvs,
whatever their musical endowments may
be, seldom fail to please ; besides which,
the singing of ladies indicates the culti
vation of their taste generally, and the
embellishment of the mind.
The Tiling Hint Uakc Men.
It is not the best things that is, the
things we call best that make men; it
is not the plcasantest things; it is not
the calm experiences of life; it is life's
rugged experience, its tempests, its
trials. The discipline of life is here
good and there evil, he-re trouble and
there joy, here rudeness and there
smoothness, one working witn the other,
and the alternations of the one and the
other, which necessitate adaptations,
constitutea part of that education which
make a man a man, in distinction from
an animal, which has no education- The
successful man invariably bears on his
brow the marks of the struggles which
he has had to undergo
A Word to Ulrl.
The woman who is indifferant to her
looks is no true woman. God meant
woman to bo attractive, to look well, to
please, and it is one of her duties to
carry out this intention of her Maker.
But that dress is to do it all, and to suf
fice, is more than I can be brought to
believe. N. P. Willis wrote once a
paragraph on the power of education to
produce beauty. That it absolutely
chiseled the features; that he had seeii
minyaclum-y noso and thich pair of
lips so modified by thonyht awakened
and active sentiment as lo be unrecogni
zable. And he put it on tln-t ground
that we so often see people, homely an i
unattractive in youth, bloom in middle
life into a softened Indian summer of
good looks and mellow tones.
.A .1 t '11
it it' he.
The more experience we have of the
wo Id, tho more that experience; should
show us how little is in the power of
riches; for what indeed truly desirable
can they bestow upon us? Can they
give beauty to the deformed, strength to
the weat.. or health to the infirm?
Surely, if they could we should not -cc
so many ill-favored faces haunting the
aseuib!ies of the great, nor would such
number of feeble wretches languish in
their coaches and palaces- Can they
prolong their own possession, or lengthen
his daj's who enjoj-s them ? So far other
wbe, that the sloth, the luxury, the care
which attend thorn, t horten the lives of
millions and bring them with pain and
misery to an untimely grave. Where
then is their value, if they can neither
embellish nor strengthen our forms,
sweeten nor prolong our lives! Again,
can they adorn the mind more than the
body? o they not rather swell the
heart with vanity, puff up the cheeks
with pride, shut our ears to every call of
virtue, and our bowels to every motive
of compassion ? Fielding.
Keml Wisely.
Look well to your spending. No mat
ter what come in, if-more rocs out vou
will always be poor. The art is not in
making money, but in keeping it; little
expenses like mice in a barn, when they
are many, make great wa-te. Hair by
hair heads get bald ; straw by straw the
thatch goes off the cottage ; and drop by
drop the rain comes into the chamber.
A barrel is soon empty, if the tap leaks
but a droi a minute. When you mean
to save, begin with your mouth; there
are many thieves down the red lane.

Never stretch your logs further than the
blankets will reach, or you will soon be
cold. In clothes, choo-e suitable and
lasting stuff, and not tawdry fineries. To
be warm is the main thing ; never mind
the looks. A fool may make money, but
it needs a wise man to spend it. Re
member, it is easier to build two chim
neys, than to keep one going. If you
give all to back and board, there is noth
ing left for the savings bank. Fare hard
end work hard while you are young
and you have a chauce of rest when you
are old.
Mornl Influence.
The influence of a good example is
far-reaching; for our experience and
conflicts with the world lead us at times
to indulge misanthropic sentiments, and
charge all men with selfish and impure
motives. The play of pride, prejudice,
arid paoion, and the eagerness mani
fested by the great majority of men to
advance their own interests, often at the
expense of others, and in violation of
the golden rule, cause us to look with
suspicion on tho be.-t intent of others.
Arrogance, hypoeri.-y, treachery and vio
lence, every day outrage justice, till we
are almost disposed to distrust human
nature, and become discouraged. But
amid ail that is sad ami disheartening in
this busy, noisy world, now and then
there is presented to us a life of such
uniform virtu?, that we recognize in it a
character that brings hope for the per
fect development and ultimate regenera
tion of our race Such characters are
precious, and such examples should be
Sield up to the world for its admiration
and imitation; they should bu snatched
from oblivion and treasured in the hearts
and thoughts of all who are in proces
of forming habits and maturing charac
ter. Tho man who "an cheat in business,
the man who can lie, the man who is an
unkind husband, a bad father, m unholy
man, he may believe what he likes or
disbelieve what he likes, but he will be
swept away from the presence of God
and the glory of his power, when He
whose fan is in His hand shall purge His
floor and gather the wheat into His gar
ner, and burn up the chaff with un
quenchable firp.
It is reported that not less than seven
women have appeared in different parts

l is a wrong way to proportion other
men's pleasures to ourselves ; 'tis like a
child using a little bird. "Oh. poor
bird, thou shalt sleep with me." So

his hot breath ; the bird had rather be
in the cold air: and yet, too, 'tis the
mo.-t pleasing flattery, to like what ether
men like.
Of all the blessings that gladden our
earthly pilgrimage, sympathy is the
sweetest ; of all the gifts of God a friend
is the chief. The man of science has
his associate ; the man of crime his ac
acomplice; the man of pleasure his com
panion ; and in all these there is sympa
thy, but not friendship; that compre
hends an enduring affection, resting on
sympathy; it can not endure, if built on
the things that are passing away, orthat
shall bj burned up. A f riend in Jesus
is a gift, but Je-us, the Friend is the
priceless friend.

and run over- When they see a light
wagon driven by some wealthy person
coming by, they step across the street
and arc sure to be run OTer, picked up
and carried to some hospital, and then

money becomes exhaus'ed they begin

Morning l.irtli.
We can not imagi-.e anything more ex
luisitcly charming than the four o'cloi k
morning concert of the birds, out in the
county. It is worth a special visit to
the country, and a week's stay in some
quiet cottage, to hear it. Residents of
cities never have it unless they go to th
rural regions ; and many a resident of
the rural regions knows nothing about it ;
for it is a short affair, beginning about
four o'clock in the morning that drowsi
est hour of the twenty-tour and con
tinning; only about half "au hour. Eveiy
bird that can sing, or make a noise at
all, docs il then ; and the star singers of
the groves do their "level best." Their
strains fall chiefly on unhealing cars ;
for most persons eye-lids are scaled in
slumber at that hour when darkness and
light are wrestling tor the mastery, with
victory ten ling steadily towards the light;
and it is only a few early risers and
those who chance to be awake at so un
usual an hour, who have the good for
tune to enjoy it. We do not know w hich
of the songsters is loader in this morn
ing festival of the birds perchance
w hichever may chance to awaken first ,
it begins with a faint chirp from some
where amid the leaves, that steals
through the dim dawn like a timid cry
of i-ain ; then comes a modest twitter;
then two chirps answered by two twit
ters for the songsters are tuning their
throats; then a thrush or a cat-bird
leads boldly off, and linnet red bird,
parrow, mocking bird jay bird, and all
the rest of them fall in, and such a
bright, sweet stream of melodv pours
forth for twenty or thirty minutes from
tree, shrub, woodbine, vineyard, rasp
berry thicket, and bower, as no human
combination can afford an equal to We
heard Nilsson a short time ago, and we
have heard many of the famous singers
of the last fifteen years; but if they
could all be brought together in what
the handbills call a "grand combination
programme," it would fall below the
dawn song of the birds. It is a song of
praise their salute to their Creator
