VENTILATION.—TIIO great impor
tance of ventilation in our sitting and
sleeping rooms, in our schools and
public halls, is not sufficiently appreci
ated. It was well set forth in a recent
lecture by a Cleveland professor. It
is startling to learn the amount of car
bonic acid omitted from the lungs of
one person, or from a single gas burn
er 3 enough to poison the whole atmos
phere of a good sized room in a very
brief period of t:mo. flow many per
sons think that winter temperature de
mands the exclusion of fresh air- to
make their apartments more warm and
comfortable, when the fact, that in the
cold season, we consume moro oxygen
and consequently inhale a greater
quantity of the poisonous carbonic acid
gas, should lead to a directly opposite
course. A bed room in winter requires
more ventilation than in summer, and
the non-observance of this fact, will
readily account for the awful diseases
to which frail humanity is subject. We
wonder if many of our readers are
aware of the poisonous exhalations in
cident to a congregation of their "lel
low-eitizens," in ball rooms, churches
and lecture halls. If they have not
fully considered the vast importance
of thorough ventilation, lot them take
these undeniable facts home to their
serious thoughts. A person in health
has eighteen breathings per minute,
and thirty-five hogsheads of air pass
through the lungs in twenty-four
hour's. Of this, from three to five per
cent. or about two and a half hogs
heads, is exhaled as carbonic acid gas,
and thus one person would render two
or three hogsheads of air unfit for
breathing again. Let every person
anxious for the preservation of hie
health take care that the windows of
the dormitories are dropped a little,
even during the winter Nights. There
is far less danger of taking cold than
there is of inhaling the noxious at
mosphere, which saps the health, un
dermines the constitution and embit
ters life with suffering and disease
which might have been avoided.
often do we see persons who wish to
be taken for what they are not. The
boy apes the man with cane and cigar;
the man affects the ways of boyhood.
Tho sailor envies the landsman's lot;
the landsman, for pleasure, goes to sea.
The business man who must travel
limn town to town, and from country
to country, dreams of tho day when
he will be able to "settle down ;" the
man of sedentary occupation grieves
over the thought that he has to vege
tate like a cabbage in one spot, and
sighs for the sime when ho may travel.
The town-bred youth hails with joy
the morning in which he can breathe
pure air and ramble among green
fields; the country
_lad is all wonder
and admiration when ho first sees the
rows of town gas lamps tapering away
in perspective like beads.of gold; and
ho is excited by the blaze of gas which
pours from the windows on the road.

Letter from Kansas City, Missouri. 1
The following letter is from Mr.
George W. Householder to our towns
man, 'Squire Snare :
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 21, 1868
FRIEND SNARE' :—I am still in Kan
sas city, and have finally concluded "to
fight it out on this lino" making it my
future home. I have given up the Col
orado idea, assured of the fact, that
Kansas City is destined at no distant
day, to become the Metropolis of the
Missouri Valley. Wo have been here
over seven months, and in that time, I
have satisfied myself of the city and
her surroundings—during that period
I have traveled over seven hundred
miles around her, anxious to learn for
myself, tho true character of the coun
try upon which she had to depend for
her trade; because, I hold that in order
to build up ,a great city anywhere, it is
of primary importance, in the first
place, to have a natural position and
some great thoroughfare; a centre of
railroad connection—and a country of
great natural resources, and of excee
ding fertility to back her—all these has
Kansas City in a pro eminent degree,
more probably than any other city in
in the Union, except perhaps New York
and Chicago. Another year will bring
into her lap the unbroken connection
of seven railroads, all converging to a
common centre, and in the very centre
of our city. The completion of the
groat Railroad and wagon bridge across
the Missouri, (the first undertaking of
the kind across that treaeherous
stream) will be hailed as an omen of
great joy within loss than that puled.
,'lt would astonish you, were you
here, to see the tnany improvements
that have been made during the past
,Buildings that would
well grace Market St., Philadelphia, or
Lake St., Chicago, have been built in
short time, and many others of like
proportions are now under contract.
The groat cry is, the want of business
houses—and rents for rooms are run
ning high—single rooms frequently
command as much as $2OOO per Year.
Wo aro constantly receiving accessions
from St. Louis, Boston,' Chicago, f&t.
Joseph and Leavensworth—a striking
feet that Kansas City is in the aseendan
cy, and that the eyes of business men
everywhere arc turned in this direc
tion. Nor is there any wonder when
we examine her situation closely ; all
that necessary for the unprotected
oyo to do, in order to solve the prob
lem, will be to take up the map of the
Union, and find Kansas City, situated
at the confluence of the Kaw River
into the Missouri, and just at that
point where the latter makes her great
bend to the east, after coursing her way
south for over 3000 miles; a stream
too, which is navigable nearly to her
source, and which is capable during
the greater part of the year, of bearing
upon her bosom the trade and traffic
of the country. Tho rock-bound shores
of the Missouri on the Southern side,
at this point, seems to be destined by
nature for the building up of a great
city ; and although fate seemed to bo
against her, during the prevalence of
the rebellion, when she was held sim
ply as a military post, and her rival,
Leavenworth bad all the sway, grow
ing rich out of the war, she is now
notwithstanding all these adverse air
cutnstances'surmounting all opposition,
and aggregating to herself the trade
of all that immense country lying south
and southeast of her. Several rea
sons combine, no doubt, as the induce
ment for capitalists to turn their at
tention in this direction, and the
greatest of which is probably the fact,
that this is one of the very few sites
where the Missouri river can be suc
cessfully bridged—hence her railroads;
and secondly, the abundance of her
timber, stone and clay, making it corn
raratively easy to erect her bridges,
construct railroads and machine shops,
and build up her city; and lastly but not
least, the extreme fertility of the soil
surrounding her several hundred miles,
situated in a mild climate, within but
thirty miles of the geographical cen
tre of the United States, and rapidly
settling up with an industrious and en
terprising population, mostly of east
ern and northern origin. The political
sentiment of our city and country is
fast becoming radical. The old Mis
souri element is giving way to eastern
emigration who will soon reconstruct
this beantiful country, politically, so
cially and morally—and change her
in a few years, into a perfect paradise.
Nor are wo deficient in churches and
schools, as many in the east may sup
pose. No less than sixteen Churches
grace our prosperous hills, whose pul
pits aro ably filled by eloquent and en
terprising ministers, drawing.good aud
iences. The Common Schools aro yet
in their infancy, hut have progressed
astonishingly since their commence
ment. The city- is now building five
largo and commodious brick . houses
for that purpose. Four of which are
for Primary Schools, and ono for a Cen
tral High School. When these aro
completed there will be but few cities
of equal size, better prepared tq eclu•
cat° her youth than 4ansas City. It
is the intelligence of her people that
has induced this movement in the right
direction, whose early training in the
east and north has not been forgotten,
and who are determined that. their off
spring shall not bo neglected in that
GEORGE W. Housznor.nza.
LAST DYING Womis.-4 Dostou reli
gious paper tells this story
.A.is old iady who was about to breathe
her last, received a mill from an ac
quaintance ignorant of the mortal ill
ness. The answer sent down from
the chamber et the departing sufferer
was memorably unique: "Madam
, sends tier Dom pliments to Mad
am —, bqt legs to he excused, 114
she is engaged it; dying."
[from the Tfarriaburg State Guatd, Republican.]
We question, very much, whether
wo shall ever have a school for states
men as long as political contests for
place are characterized by the unfair
ness with which all elections in the
United States are now conducted. It
is a fact that the country is suffering
more from the effects of defective leg
islation by the States and Congress
than any other influence now at work
to impede its progress. Why is this
the fact ? Wo do not assert that this
influence is entirely the result of dis
honesty, of deliberate design on the
part of tho majorities to do wrong. It
arises, in most cases, out of the fact
that we have so few statesmen in leg
islative positions, while such a horde
of demagogues fill places which wore
created for the first talent. There aro
no gradations to fit a man for public
duty, if we except that of the judiciary;
men being compelled to pass through
a certain routine of study and practice
before they can reach the bench. Now
why should not men be trained as well
for legislative and official executive
duty ? If it la proper to educate a
man to expound the law, why should
not the law maker be educated for
that duty ? if a judge on the bench
requires certain fitting instructions,
why should not ozeentive officers also
be trained and educated to their call
ing ? The time is coming when it will
be of the utmost importance to answer
this question. At present our great
est ills aro due to the fact that we have
so few statesmen filling places of pub
lic trust and honor, and so many dem
agogues wielding legislative and execu
tive power, which they have neither
the acquired nor the natural ability
properly to exorcise. - In every elec
tion district in every State the best
and ablest men aro invariably sot
aside for the reason that they are either
unwilling or unable to cope with the
corruption which heaves bad mon into
prominence. The wise and the good,
the student who is familiar with the
history of the country, the 000ncualst
who understands the wants of a com
munity, the business man who .directs
and enriches industry, the publicist ac
quainted with the policies best 'calcu
lated to advance the general good, are
seldom hoard, seldom gain prominence,
and are shoved to one side, to make
room for bloated political tricksters,
demagogUes, and (we blush to write
the word) thieves in broadcloth, whose
only object in struggling for power is
to rob the Government they aro sol
emnly sworn to uphold in honor and
advance to prosperity. Of course,
there aro what may be truly called
great men, who eifgage in these frauds,
but the mass of corruption in our Gov
ernment has sprung from the fact that
the people have been too indifferent in
putting men in places for whose duties
they have no qualification, and whose
trusts aro always abused in their hands.
The routine of legislative and execu
tive duty has become corrupt because
so many weak and incompetent men
aro entrusted with such authority,
whom the designing and the rich, not
in power,purchase and abuse to the ad
vancement of their money-making in
terests. Under present usages, legis
lative position is too often sought not
as tests of high ability,nor whore great
honors are to be gained, but solely and
only where money can be made. Mon
like these are never troubled about fit
ting themselves for the duties of their
station. They never stop to think
that there aro facts to bo studied, in
terests to be examined, economy to be
enforced, just laws to be enacted and
the general welfare to be protected.--
These aro secondary objects with nine
out of every ten public men who enter
public life impressed with the idea of
self-aggrandizement, and who are on
ly considered successful when they
leave it, if they have made a collosal

that he might preserve his reputation

expect to see another Gallatin ; but we
expect soon to see the day when the
people will accept only the services of

Boys Amp Glitts.-11 boy romps and
laughs, plays at athletic games, whips
tops, runs races, climbs trees, leaps and
jumps, and exercises all his muscles in
turn. Ho lolls in his chair, and as
sumes any attitude ho pleases at his
desk. He has from his game a suffi
cient appetite to oat heartily, and out
of school hours he feels no restraint.—
The girl, on the contrary, never romps,
runs races, whips tops, &c. She only
sits upright and walks, thus develop
ing, and sometimes all but destroying
only ono set of muscles. She cannot
shake off fora moment the feeling of
constraint, and she naturally loses ap
petite, becomes languid, faint and low.
The boy comes into rude contact with
thoso above, below, and around birn.
He has to enduro "chaffing" to learn
to "hold his own," to fight if need be.
Even in his games his mind has to be
active. Ile has to think about the
most judicious way of fielding when
Tom is at tho wickets, or for looking
out when Dick kicks the football. This
developes his intellect, and teaches him
his place in his own world. The girl,
on the contrary, ipso hedged in with
protection that she has no power of
her own, and size cannot learn life, for
the boot; is kepi closed to her. Let
us at this moment pause awhile, for
memory recalls to our mind the name
and nature of many a blooming wo
man whom wo have admired for their
loveliness, their good sense, their gen
uine worth, and speakinr , profession
ally, for their thorough healthfulness.
How have they been brought up r-
Why almost invariably in the country,
liying with their brothers, and sharing
their sports in a feminine way—riding
or walking, irrespective of dirty lanes . ;
boating, playing bowls or croquet,
swinging, lolling under the green tree,
eating as much as they liked, and only
under restraint during the period
when they were with Miss Tattier or
Professor Gultarro. They have had
perhaps, a single year at a finishing
school' to enable them to break off na
turally a few objectionable-habits, and
to part with - b. few undesirable acquain
tances and to pass with ease from the
girl to the woman. When such a ono
loaves school she does not think of it
as a place of punishment to bo avoided.
She has most probably acquired a fond
ness for her music or painting, or
found sufficient interest in German • or
Italian to continue its study. Her
mind, with its healthy tone unspoiled
by inceessant worry of school,seeks oc
cupation rather• than inglorious repose.
To such a ono brothers will tell their
little adventures, and whether she
have beauty of face or elegance of form,
or be in reality somewhat plain, she
is voted a "brick," and as such takes
an honored place in the domestic ar
chitecture. The conclusion to be drawn
from the foregoing remarks is inevita
ble, viz : That if we wish to preserve
the health of our daughters we must
not overwork them. Tho horseman
does not put a filly to labor at a peri
od when ho would allow her °brother
of the same age to be idle in the field.
THE BasND.—We acknowledge the
receipt of tho thirty-fifth annual re
port of the Managers of the 'Pennsyl
vania Institute for the Instruction of
tho Blind." There aro now in the
school ono hundred and eighty-three
blind persons Thirty-two of those
support themselves wholly or in part,
as assistant teachers, or in the work
department, five aro full paying pupils,
eleven in part, and eight aro day schol
ars. By a series of carefully arrang
ed figures the Principal, Wm. Chapin,
Esq , shows that there are now 13,259
white blind, and 15,635 total blind per
sons in the United States. Of this
number there are 1,590 in Pennsylva
nia, 278 in New Jersey, and 56 in Dela
ware, the three States contributing to
the support of the Institution. Groat
difficulty is experienced in providing
employment for the blind after they
have been instructed and graduated
from tho College. To obviate this, the
report recommends the establishment
by philanthropists of a manufactory
where the blind may be employed at
fair wages, Such' an establishment
could not be made selfsupporting but
it would contribute largely towards
ameliorating the condition of those
doomed in this world to perpetual
darkness. The system of education
adopted by the School embraces not
only mental culture but practical in
struction in. mechanics and general
handiwork. The factory attached to
the institution, where brushes, brooms,
whisks, mats, carpets; caned chairs,
beadwork, knitting, sewing and gorier
al fancy work are made by the pupils
and graduated workmen, is very suc
cessfully managed, and during the past
year stock to the amount of $16,865 41
was made up. The report shows a
very gratifying state of affairs and re
flects great credit on those immediate
ly connected with the management of
this noble institution, of which pimp
sylvania should feel justly proud.
