MINOR PARAGRAPHS. OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES. On the 17th of June, as is set forth by our London contem- poraries. Dr. Holmes received the degree of doctor of letters from the University Buy Levitra Online With Prescription of Cambridge. The orator of the occasion remarked that the words applied to Addision, " Pha>bo ante alios dilectus," might appropriately be transferred to Holmes, and concluded with these words: " Videor mihi vatem quendam canentera audivisse, ilium cujus in corde sestas seterna floreret, non vocandum esse senem.

Trans occidentis amplum ilium sinum, levi phaselo vectus, diu naviget ; nautili illius ritu, quem versibus tam pulchris descripsit, indies ' per ampliora ad altiora ' tendat. Snam Academiara, per tot sa?cula feliciter conservatam, intra paucos menses carmine sseculari iterum celebret, diuque superstes ipse exornel ; nostra; denique Academise honoris causa adscriptus, diu et nostrum et totius litterarum reipublicee ad fructum floreat, vigeat, valeat, litterarum doctor, Oliver Wen- dell Holmes."

CHARGES AGAINST A SANITARY Buy Levitra Online With Prescription OFFICIAL. The Mayor of New York having preferred charges against the president of the Board of Health, founded on the alleged complicity of the latter in corrupt action relative to the pur- chase of property for an armory for one of the city regiments, the Governor has listened to the arguments presented by coun- sel for the Mayor and for General Shaler.
