il is the universal belief that some pois

confirmed by infui inulion from .Baltimore,

Edwin Williums, uu eminent statistician

There has also been two deaths in Orange
county, iu consequence of fating oysters,
and many persons in the city of JJiouklyn,
Williamsburg and Iloboken have suilered
severely from cramps and cholera motbus,
superinduced by the same c&u.se. All the
parties who names I have mentioned,

of them were elderly men, their ages

I think, was in his fifty-sixth year, und

A CHAPTER OS FEMALE3.
Wc like to look upon n hoidthy worreir;
she is n prodigy in the riiirteenth century.
'Wherever you g'i y.ni see scores an 1 hun
dreds of Fpleery, sickly, feeble girls, who
enn hardly muster courage to make their
beds, wn-h their fare, nr drive an intrud
ing cow from the yard. Tell '.hem about
early rising, fresh nir nnd lien'.Uiy exer

lnoriil law, and are ready to faint awiy.
You expect them to gel up before day
to work in Ihe kitchen to breath'; the
fresh nir of tho morning! Preposterous
and absurd ! They have never seen the
sun rise, un l would hardly know but the
sun continues to shine forever, if it were
rot fur the iibnnnJrfs nnd their grandmolh
crs. No Wonder every year sw eep-j Ui
ihe yruvo so many young women who
have been sickly and efleminalc ever since
ihev were born into the world; and death
will continue lo select them as his victims
till they learn their duty, and pursue that
course which insures health, strength and
hint-life. Our great grand parents lived
to u (rreat age nnd never thought of lying
down .o die, till they had, at least reached
the meridian of life. They were strong,
hnppy, and hearty. Yv'hy? They msc
early, worked like beavers, and never
spent the midnight hours in dancing.
Instead cf being frightened at a mouse
al their feel; a beetle on their necks, u fly's
foot on their arm, in the absence cf their
fathers and husbands, they would load
their guns and shoot bears and catamounts,
and keep at bay a parly of savages. How
have their daughters degenerated '( What
female is there now-a-d.iys who wouhi't
run from a gun, even if it Lad j:o lock.
Tho ladies of the olden times out-lived
their husbands years and years. How is
it nowr1 Widow are few unl far be
tween. It was no singular thing for our
grandmother to have three or four hus
bands in the course of their lives. Now
it is the reverse. Men have about so ma
ny wives diseases of late have been so
fatal among the female sex. Do you know
the onuse? It is found in listless idleness,
inactivity, lale hotap, thin shoes, muslin
dresses, a horn r of fresli morning air,
and in that detestable sluir, stitched iu
pir.l: and yellow covers, which is flooding
our country. If they will do nothing
else, yoii"g ladies will sit and read from
morning till night, that sUdJy, sentimen
tal, impure, and lictiitioiu trash that is
thrown in such idjiindt.uce from the press.
This shrivels the mind, warps the affec
tions, chills the belter feelings, and makes
the life wretched beyond description.
Let females look into this subject, and act
like reasonable beings, and we should sec
quite a different state of things. We
should hear of no fainting away, no sick

Ike Marvel, in his 'Reveries of a Ba
chelor, thus writes: A man without
some sort of roligon is at best a poor re
probate, the football of destiny with no
tie linking him to infinity and to the won
drous eternity that he begun within ; bat
a woman without it is not even worse a
flame without heat, a rainbow with-out
oolor, a flower without perfume. A mat:
may in some sort tie his frail hopes and
honors to the weak, shifting grouud-tackle
lo his buisnesi or world; but a woman
without that anchor called Faith, is a drift
and a wreck ! A man may clumsily con
tinue a sort of moral responsibility out of
l.is relations to mankind; but a woamn iu
her comparatively insulated sphere, where
tlTVetion and not purpose U the controhng
motive, can find no basis in any other sys
tem of right action but that of spiritual
f.ii; h. A man may craze his thoughts and
his brain to truthfulness, in such poor
harborage as fame and reputation m iy
stretch before him, but a woman where
can she put her hope in stori'is, if not in

lightening them with plcaslnt radiance,

my with brooking cannon what can bes
tow it all but a holy soul, tied to what is
strong than nn army with cannon? W ho
has enjoyed the love of a christian mother
but will eclw the. thought viih energy,
and hallow it with a tear.
Great minds are charitable to their
bitterest enemies, and can sympathise with
the failings of their fellow-creatures. It
is only the narrow minded who make no
allowance for the faults of others.
Don't IiLsrAiu. If you slip down,

finally weather the gala, cs a pretty eirl is

The enst of publishing n newspaper, is
much more than people generally suppose,
and the profits, if any, mu' ii less. The
Nuw York daily papers, which haven
large circulation r.nd great advertising
pitrotitg'S at vcy liigh prices, have been
considered as coining fortunes. The best
of tli em have made som'! money. But
the rise in the price of paper, laci.r and
i.hn.U everything else, connected with
the business, has brought them to a stand.
The Tribune, considered one of the most
prohiatiie papers in the city, afr charg
ing to meet the demands upon its columns
says the establishment has sunk tf-IO 000
in six months by the enterpi izs, audits
proprietors have now materially lessened
its size. The New York Sun, another
profitable concern, hrs also found it neces
sary to curiai't its dimensions very much,
by which they save, it is said, J 110,000 a
year in the expense of paper alone. The
N big, published al Merideu, in this State,
and the Medium, at Willimantic, are both
fferej for sale the editors preferring to
enter ihe practice of bnv. The price ol
newspapers in England, is about five
limes as great, as in this country, and the
expense of publishing them, save the
stamp duty, is no greater. So the man of
comparative case, as he smokes or rocks
and reads, may understand, if it is any
consolation to him, that newspaper pub
lishing is a hard nnd not very profitable
business. JJjt ffovJ Times.
Burroai youa local PArca.
Tint local press is emphatically the rep
resentative and the exponent of the local
interests, wants and wishes of each com

munity should first sco that its local press
is put upon a firm and substantial footing
which can only be done, by a steady and
If each member cf a community would
come a paying subscriber to the paper ot
his own town and county, six months
would not elapse, before the enlargement
and improvements which would take
place iu our papers, which would enable
a eh person to dispense with one or more
Northern papers, without finding his fac
ul. ies lor intelligence in the lcabt dimin
ished. A people commit no greater error, than
that of permitting their Ioc J press to
languish, by reason of an iiiadequute sup
port. Never say your country paper is
small and not worth taking; give it the
support to which it is entitled , and it will
be immediately enlarged and improved so
ns t3 meet the full expectations and wants
of a community in which it is located.
We believe that publishers are generally
liberal iu responding to a liberal patronage
by the improvement their papers, us
appreciation of such lioerality.
If a man is able to take bul one p iper,
that should be the one published nearest
to his place of residence, and the nex
should be the ono published at the com
mercial metropolis of his own State. For

dered himself ible to consult his taste as

Wasuimjion MoiLMtfT, It is sta
ted that the managers of the Washington
monument, which for some years past,
hrs been languishing on the banks of the
Potomac, are about relinquishing the work
and turning it over to Congress. We
highly approve of this determination. It
is only proper thai if a national monument
is to be constructed, as a mark of the ven
eration iu w hich the memory of Wash
ington was held by the American people,
that il should be a national work, recog
nized by the approbation and appropria

Congress. Il will then L a tnomuiieui

times it may lack depth; at o'her times,
