scarcely less than eighteen hundred figures, yet “it seems neither florid nor over-adorned;" rather, the superficies is so vajied by the carvings, that one forgets its size in their engaging study. The spires are very lofty, one of them towering to a height of more than 400 feet. As respects its exact dimensions, we are unable to give the reader a definite idea, but will leave him to form some impression of its grandeur from the fact, that the Chartres cathedral is one of the largest church structures in Europe. There are 130 stained or painted glass windows in it, whose artistic beauty is unsurpassed by those of any other building in France. A recent visitor within the time and purpose hallowed precincts of this ancient structure thus writes :
“ The first impression given by the interior as well as the exterior of Chartres cathedral is enormous height-height rising into such dimness of shadow that it takes away the idea of any roof; one looks upward as if to the sky, and with the same sensation of peace. Amiens cathedral has this in degree; but then Amiens still gives the feeling of newness; one is inclined to say, “How grand! and who is the architect ?' But at Chartres one never thinks of the architect at all : it seems as if the whole building was not made, but had grown. One's soul's wings begin to tremble and stir, just as under the open sky, with no fragment of mortal roof, however safe and ornamental, to keep them in and restrain their liberty, even under the most beautiful bonds. I can not clearly describe the feeling ; but those to whom the very breath of religious life is freedom-perfect freedom—will understand it and what it symbolizes."
The venerable Dr. Jacob Bigelow, of Boston, in responding to a toast at the recent dinner of the Massachusetts Medical Society, said that for the last half century he had not been obliged to keep his house for a single day, on account of any indisposition or malady whatever; and added : “I know not to what I should attribute this singular exemption for so long a period, except it be to the joint facts, which I do not boast of excelling in, but have been able to practice--temperance, hard work, and abstinence from medicine."
