Any man (says the “ Coney Island News”) pays too much for his whistle when he has it wet 15 or 20 times a day. A Useful Clergyman. —A North British journal reports that Mr Howard, the New Connexion minister of Crook, is a man of many accomplishments. He can preach a good sermon, he can lecture on many branches of science in a very able manner, and blends amusement with instruction. He is a mesmerist, a phrenologist, and last, but not least, he can cure many diseases without the use of medicine. Every Thursday afternoon scores of people with crutches, stjcks, arms in slings, bad eyes, toothache, headache, &c., wend their way to the chapel vestry, where for two hours Mr Howard practices the healing art. Many surprising cures are mentioned, and people come from such distant places as Newcastle and Sunderland, suffering from all sorts of ailments. It may be stated that Mr Howard is a bitter opponent of spiritualism, so that this science has no credit for the cures he effects.
