NOVEL REA I) I X (i.
MR. EDITOR Notwithstanding'it is almost ;
universally conceded that no essential advun
lage can' be realized from novel reading, few
are willing to admit that such employment is I
really pernicious to the weltaie and happiness i
ct ihose who indulge in it. Entertaining, as :
1 beiieve, views somewhat adverse to the gen- !
eral impression, and being extremely solicit- j
otis for the welfare of the fair sex especially,
(who, it any, are the greatest sufferers,) I have
c.included to give you the result of my obser
vations and cogitations on the subject.
The chief objection I have to novels is. thev
fill the mmd with too much of ideal and too
little of real life. Their heroines are gener- i
ally described as combining personal charms,
which outvie the fairest nymphs of Circassia!
with extraordinary intellectual, moral, and I
social accomplishments. And what is the
consequence 1 YY hy, our young men grow up
with their brains filled with livid pictures ol
imaginary bliss, to be enjoyed and shared with
one ot fairy paragons of loveliness and
perfection. I tie youth, when he arrives to
maturity, looks vainly around among the circle
o! his female acquaintances for one in whom
are concentrated all the varied characteristics
of perfection. He resolves to travel, in the '
fond hope of yet realizing his cherished dream
of felicity. A few years thus spent, and he
returns again without having accomplished
his object—he finds that woman, like man, is
a frail being, and " perfection is not in her." i
He can discover none who will b>ar sem
blance to his mind's idol, and therefore re
fo.ves to spend his days in the undisturbed
enjoyment of" single blessedness."
So, too, with the opposite sex. Females
whose education has always been confined to
novel reading', are sure to inculcate erroneous
and p-ejudiciai ideas of the character of men.
A young lady, for instance, is addressed by a
worthy and reputable young man, whose in
tentions are fixed upon marriage. But she
toon discovers tnal Ins manner of wooing does
nut accord with those high wrought scenes
drawn by her favorite authors. * Perhaps he
does not. like a valiant Troubadour, bend his
knee in humble deprecation at her feet—may
hap he forgets to press her hand at every part
ing—or neglects some other token of romantic
iove, which novels have taught her to regard
as indispensable. She accordingly looks upon
him as unht to lead her to the altar. He is
dismissed—and another, and another, in quick
succession, and ,'rora similar frivolous pretexts,
meet a like fate. Suddenly a change takes
pace. The beaux become less attentive —
they look upon her as a vain coquette—soon
she is entirely forsaken, and suffered to ptne
away her days in the unhailoweJ and unfeli
citous enjoyments of an " old maid " .Such, I
iV-ar, is too often the unhappy result ot novel
But, it does not end here. I,et us suppose,
for example, that a courtship is carried on with
the usuai and expected "cooing and billing,"
and the Jovers arc eventually married. Soon,
however, the thrilling enthusiasm of love is
over. The husband's business engrosses a
large portion of his tune, and his attentions are
Loth less frequent and leas passionate than dur
ing the days of wooing. The apt eye of the
wife delects this, and she instantly charges
him with a waut of affection. He, on the
other hand, alleges that she too has lost much
of the ardor and fervor of her former love. A
mutual coldness of demeanor towards each
other follows; each fancying the fault to lie in
the other. Thus matters progress—in time
their feelings become more and more estrang
ed : and finally open bickerings and loud quar
rels ensue, with all their manifold sources of
misery and sorrow to both. This, too, 13 no
vam illusion. Thousands, no doubt, can recog
nize in this short picture their own unfortunate
experience. And to what but the detrimental
influence of novel reading can ail this be attri
buted 1 Had those persons been educated in
iri a proper manner—had they been taught to
view life as it really is, instead of being per
mitted to inculcate the fallacious sentiments
breathed by novels, wretchedness and sorrow
would have been as far from entering their
hearts as happiness is now.
Such, Mr. Editor, are my humble views
reiatiw to novel reading. But I have merely
presented the evils resulting from novels in
their most unexceptionable shape; and when
it is a notorious fact that one half of the publi
cations now issued, are gross and vulgar, end
v.tcriy unfit to be read by any one who has the
least claim to the virtue of modesty, [ ask,
should not all be ejected from every family
Trial of Dr. J. W. Webster for the Harder
of Dr. Parkman.
The excitement along the seaboard respecting
this trial at Boston, appears to increase as the
proceedings progress, and public opinion to di
vide as to the guilt or innocence of the accused.
The medical witnesses that been examined
■ y no means agree in their testimony, and when
doctors disagree, who shall decide The evi
dence as to the identity of the body found (given
below) is almost conclusive, but thus far nothing
has been elicited to prove that Dr. Webster
committed the deed. Appearances are against
hicn, and it will now depend on subsequent tes
timony whether they can be strengthened or
Examination of Dr. .V C htrp.
Have practiced dentistry nearly thirty years;
a neighbor of l>r. Lewis; have known Dr.
Leorge Parkman since 1522; acquaintance he-
Tan when 1 was a student of Dr. Jonn Randal;
bave been his family dentist since 1825 ; 1 had a
block of teeth shown me. I did recognise them
k s a set of teeth that I had made for Dr. Park
-an in 1846—the teeth were handed to the wit
ness—these are the same blocks which were
shown to rne, and I recognised.
State how Dr. Parkman's mouth was. \ ery
regular in one respect; in relation of the upper
to the lower jaw it was so peculiar that it made
an impression on my mind. 1 remember the pe
njiiarities with great exactness. The circum
stances connected with these two models were
•omewhat peculiar. The first question asked
me by Dr. rarkinan, when the teeth were about
to be ordered, was how long will it take ;
ar,d the reason why, he said, was the Med
ial college going to be opened on a certain day
*hn he should want new teeth, and he did not
• ant to order them unless he could have them
by that day. That time was rather short. The
peculiarities of the mouth made it a dificult case,
f *nuiring as much skill as could be procured.
• began as soon as possible, and paid a large
part of my attention to it from day to day ; I
him frequently while it was in progress,
'"■ d in consequence of the shortness of time and
">e cloas attention to it; I remember that more
"Stinrtly than in ordinary rases.
I proceeded to take the ordinary impressions :
f ' first step was to get an exact fac simile of
jaw, or an impression, which is the same
; ln S; it is done with soft wax retained in metal,
Vch' d to the jaw, and when the wax is cold it is
"•su; out and liquid plaster poured in, which
'•"He an exapt copy of the jaw. Witness showed
1 placer cast of Dr. P.'s lower jaw, then four
natural teeth in this jaw, and three roots or
TT&r'r 1 were cut ofi - The next stc i'

top}, or die and punch, between which the gold
plate was to be tilled by striking.
Ihe witness showed a trial plate of copper, I
which was then struck and applied to Dr*. P.'s
mouth ; tins plate is used to decide how long the
gold plate should go. The witness also shewed
atrial plate for the upper jaw. The witness
then went into minute technical explanation of j
the mode in which he obtained the relation be
tween the upper and lower jaws so as to make
the upper and lower teeth fit each other, as well
as each set to fit the gums—he in fact went into
a regular lecture on practical dentistry in gen
era), as well as in this case, which would not be
understood patterns he illustrated it;
the great' irregularity of the left side of lower
jaw of Dr. P. occasioned much trouble in fitting.
I he upper teeth of Dr. P. were in three blocks,
the lower teeth were also in three blocks, but
not made whole like the other, in consequence
of the natural teeth which remained on the left
side of the lower jaw. Both blocks were back
teeth; the three blocks were attached to one
gold plate ; the upper blocks were also attached
to one gold plate ; which completed the upper
set; there were spiral springs which'knabled the
•wearer to open and close his .mouth with less
danger of the teeth being displaced than without
The teeth were fastened to the plate by pla
tina pins and not gold ones ; mentions that mere
ly as a fact, as he remembered. Witness showed
the model of the upper surfaces of the teeth !
showing their length.
Owing to an accident which happened to one j
of the teeth it was necessary to have another
made, which made it necessary for the witness
and his assistant to work all night; before the
medical college opened we finished the teeth in
season, and had just thirty minutes to spare.
The Bradford Reporter, at Towanda, says
that rumors are in circulation there " affecting
the standing of the Honesdale Bank." The
Reporter thinks " it would be well enough to re
fuse its notes until something dqjjnite is known."
