An Old Offender.--Never were we more astonished than at the depth of 

depravity revealed to us by the confessions of a patient from a distant 

country who was upwards of sixty years of age and was yet a victim of 

the vile habit to which he had become addicted when a youth. The stamp 

of vice was on his face, and was not hidden by the lines made by advancing 

age. The sufferings which this ancient sinner endured daily in 

consequence of his long course of sin were sometimes fearful to behold; 

and yet he continued the habit in spite of all warnings, advice, and 

every influence which could be brought to bear upon him. So long had 

he transgressed, he had lost his sense of shame and his appreciation 

of the vileness of sin, and it was impossible to reform him by any means 

which could be brought to bear upon him. He left us still a sufferer, 

though somewhat relieved, and, we have every reason to believe, as vile 

a sinner as ever. Undoubtedly, before this time his worthless life is 

ended, and he has gone down into a sinner's grave, hoary with vice. 

A terrible end. 

 

The Sad End of a Young Victim.--C. L., a young man residing in a large 

Southern city, was the youngest son of parents who were in moderate 

circumstances, but appreciated the value of education, and were anxious 

to give their children every advantage possible for them to receive. 

With this end in view, the young man was sent to college, where he did 

well for a time, being naturally studious and intelligent; but after 

a brief period he began to drop behind his classes. He seemed moody 

and obtuse. He could not complete his tasks even by the most severe 

application. It seemed impossible for him to apply himself. The power 

of concentration appeared to be lost. Soon he was seized by fits of 

gloominess from which he did not seem to have power to free himself. 

His strength began to fail to such a degree that he could hardly drag 

himself to his meals, and at last he was almost confined to his room. 

He became greatly emaciated. The failure of his mental powers seemed 

to keep pace with the wasting of his body, so that it was soon evident 

that he must abandon all hope of pursuing his studies for some time 

at least. His case being brought to our notice, we gave him every 

attention possible, and spared no effort to rescue him from his 

condition. We readily perceived the cause of his troubles, but for a 

long time he did not acknowledge the truth. At last he confessed that 

he had sinned for years in the manner suspected, and was suffering the 

consequences. A knowledge of his guilt weighed upon him and haunted 

him day and night. He promised to reform; but if he did, it was too 

late, for the wasting disease which was fastened upon him continued. 

At his mother's request he returned to his home, and a few weeks later 

we received the awful intelligence that he had ended his miserable life 

by blowing out his brains with a pistol. Thus tragically ended the 

career of this young man, who might, with the advantages afforded him,
