For the Gazette. ItiTlOf ID IT lOS 8. So. T . , BY TIMOTHY TYPO. 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 reading. 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 centre table. 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 w cakened. 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' olasLerr i<ffl "'""A® ,D Z '" C 0r braSS of llle V nu \ y U,Ca r S of cast ' 6 sand. The next rrf .u P .°- Ur a soft ,nctal u P on t,,e part of lite I'tmv n I? 1 IS ' thc " l ° gel 3 :na,e ol ' 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 them. 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." THE MARKETS. • Lewistown, March 29, I*so.
