The Pennsylvania Hospital for the Ik
han4’.—Thomas S. Klrkbride, Physician in Cliief
and Superintendent ot the Pennsylvania Hospi
tal lor the Insane, haß just issued his Twenty
eoventh Annual Report, showing the operations
of the institution for 1867. At the date of the last
report there were 296 patients In the Hospital,
since which 288 have been admitted and 240 dis
charged.or died, leaving 344 under care at the
close of The year. The total number pf patients
in the Institution during the year was
684: the average number under- treatment was
336, or 199 males and 167 females. The number
•of males In the Hospital dnring 1867 was 307,and
females 277. Of the patients discharged 135 were
males and 105 females, and of this number 64
males and 63 females were cured; 21 males and 12
females improve d. Since the opening of. the in
stitution 5,064 patients have been admitted, and
4,720 discharged, of which 2,518 were males and
2,202 were 1 females.
The following shows the number of single,mar
ried, widows and widowers In 6,064 patients:
Single males, 1,864; single females, 989; married
mams, 1,205; married fcmales,l,o79; widows,3o6;
widowers,'l2l. Total, 5,064. , , ,
The principal Improvement commopced during
the past rear is the provision of an additional
ward at the department ef females. This ward is
intended for a class of cases of the deepest in
terest—for persouß very sick, and tor those labor
ing under acute affections of the brain, accompa
nied by high excitement, and requiring the ut
most care and privacy; and yet, for obvious rea
sons, not most comfortablv situated in any of
the ordinary wards. This was admirably pro
vided for at the department for males in the ercc
. tion of that building, and had been temporarily
furnished by our having vacant wards in the de
partment for females, after the removal of the
men to the now buildiDg. The building is now
enclosed, and will be completed In the coming
summer. The following are the officers of the
institution: „ „

Appeal by the Magdalen Society.— Asylum
Twenty-first and Race streets, Philadelphia,
January 25th, 1868.—The Magdalen Society for
the Reformation of Fallen }Vomen was founded
1801. It haß rescued nearly a thousand women
from ruin, and restored many of them«to paths
of usefulness. It has now a family of Itwenty
six, and is in need of immediate aid to carry ou
its work. In co-operation tvith the Mtdmght
Meeting Association, just organized in this City,
considerable additional expenses will be incurred,
and there are no funds to meet them. ,
This society has rarely appealed of late years
to the public, and comes now for that additional
claim tor favor. 1 . ' , ,
Tho city of Philadelphia contains ovor twelve
thousand fallen women. What farther is neces
sary to appeal to your sympathy? What citizen
in-ihe full enjoyment of his own virtuous fire
side needs any other argument than that twelve
thousand friendless, outcast women, are crying
out to him for help? , .
Of the whole number of fallen women who in
habit onr city, one-third at least are desirous of
reformation, but know not what step to take.
Thev want only the guiding hand of sympathy
to lead them into paths of usefulness and virtue.
To do this Is the work of tho Magdalen Society,
■ and for which it now appeals to the public. Three
thousand dollars will be required to carry out the
pronosed plan.
Contributions to make up the sum, are earn
estly solicited by the Managers, and may be Bent
to the Treasurer, John W. Biddle, No. 618
Chestnut street;, or to any of the Managers named
below. Very respectfully,
• Ambrose White, President.

A Handsome Church The large and elegant
edifice designed for the Centenary Methodist

The vagaries the flesh puts cm are quite as
wonderful as those exhibited : by the inind.
We think, says Harrier's Weekly, nothing
of any unaccountable antipathy a man may
express mentally. Half of us, indeed, act
from sudden impulse, like or dislike. We
cannot give a reason for it even to ourselves:
but we are indeed puzzled to find the body
as well as the mind influenced by other
bodies in the mast remarkable manner, often
without our being aware of the offending
object’s presence. We allude to the suscep
tibility some persons, physical' structures
have to the presence of other bodies, either
animate or inanimate. Thus, the mere
vicinity of certain animals is quite sufficient
to excite in the most violent manner the
nervous system of some individuals. The
presence of a cat in the room has been known
to affect certain persons as though they-.were
about to be seized with a fit: and such per
sons, again, are equally disturbed by the
proximity of rabbits. The effect of touch
ing the fur of the rabbit or that of the cat is
still more distressing to the individuals thus
eccentrically constituted. The direct contact
of certain articles of food with the stomach
affects some individuals in the moßt remarka
ble manner. Some persons cannot eat a lob
ster salad without its having a very 'curious
effect upon their complexion. We, know a
lady who once indulged at supper in a salad of
this kind, and upon her return to the ball
room her face and neck immediately became
covered with spots, obliging her to retire.
Cockles and shrimps have the like effect
upon persons thus peculiarly constituted. A
medical friend tells us that eating veal gives
a lady of his acquaintance the nettle-raßh,
and that orange-peel has produced great
nervous excitment. Figs, again, give rise in
some people to what is termed “formica
tion,” or a sensation like the tickling move
ment of ants upon the palate. The most ex
traordinary example of the adverse influence
of a common article of food upon the human
stomach, is related by a surgeon of one of
our public hospitals. He says that a patient
of Ins cannot touch rice without, the most
extreme discomfort. “On one occasion,
when at a dinner party, he felt the
symptoms of rice-poißoning come.
on, and was, as usual; obliged to retire from
the table, although he had not partaken of
any dish ostensibly containing rice. It ap
peared, on investigation, that some white
soup, with which he had commenced his
dinner, had been thickened with ground
rice.’’ In another case, similar symptoms
having come on after a gentleman had par
taken of bottled beer, this apparently extra
ordinary fifet was explained by the: presence'
in the bottle of a few grains of rice, which
I had been placed there to excite a secondary
fermentation. But what is this to the per
verse stomach of a gentleman in a case cited
by Doctor Prout, who was poisoned by
eating a mutton chop? The most digestible
of all flesh to the ordinary mortal was to
him positively as poisonous as though he
had eaten toad-stools. It was at first ima
fined by his physician that hjp dislike to this
ind of food arose from mere fancy, and in
order to test him, mutton, disguised, was
served to him as other flesh meat, but always
with the same result—violent vomiting and
diarrhoia. Indeed the effect upon him was
so great that, had he been kept upon a mutton
diet. Doctor Prout believed he would have
died. Borne persons cannot touch honey
without the very alarming symptoms appear
ing of swelling of the tongue, frothing of the
mouth,>nd‘blueness oTthe" Sagers- Tlustard
applied to some eccentric: skins will produce
violent Switchings of the muscles of the face,
arms apd legs.
Many persons we know cannot remain in
a room where there is cheese; and we are
told of an eccentric constitution that could
not sit at a table where there was a cooked
hare. Eggs, again, rebel in the most violent
manner against some stomachs. The Sense
oftouQli, too, is very eccentric in some indi
viduals, and the handling ot a russet apple is
intolerable to a gentleman we have heard of;
and the mere passing of the hand along the
bristles pf a brush produces the most exqui
site nervous distress in a lady of our acquain
tance. ; : • 3-.-'
The emanations arising from vegetable
sources have a very marked effect upon
some people. Indeed,'there, is a disease
known as the hay asthma, which, at the hay
harvest, periodically affecta many persons
Eccentricities of tbe I’leih,
who reside anywhere near hay-fields when
they are Being mewed. The reason Is well
known. Floating particles of the seed are
always set free at such times, and* striking
against the mucous membranes of thermae,
mouth and tlirtfat of the individuals liable
to this affection, produce spasmodic action
of the throat, which is not only very dis
tressing, but - dangerous. Ipecacuanha,
again, is most obnoxious to many individuals,
producing vomiting and diarrhoea. The
mere removing of a 'stopper front a bottle
containing this drug will produce in some
persons an instantaneous effect, although far
removed from the object itself. Persons thus
affected by this emanation have been known
to be seized with spasms in consequence, al
though removed by a couple of floors from
the cause.
The ordinary spasmodic asthma arises
from causes jußt as local. It often happens
that patients so afflicted cannot pass certain
limits without bringing off a spasm. The dis
tance of a length of a street will often give a
man perfect exemption from his dire trouble,
or precipitate him into it. Asa rule, per
sons who are liable to seizure in the pure
atmosphere of the country obtain great relief
by a residence in towns; often, too, in the
most disagreeable, and, to persons in health,
most unhealthy portions of them. In this
distressing complaint it may truly be said
that what is one man's meat is another man’s
poison. . •
Women’s Venerations.
The following is an extract from the
“Minister’s Wooing:” If women have one
weakness more marked than men, it is to
wards veneration. They are born worshipers.
—makers of silver shrines for some divinity
or other, which of course they always think
fell straight down from Heaven. The first
step towards felling in love with an ordinary
mortal js generally to dress him out with all
manner of real or fancied superiority; and
having made him up, they worship him.
Now, a truly great man, a man really
grand and noble in art and intellect,
has ; this advantage with women,
that he is an idol ready made to
hand, and so that very painstaking and in
genious sex have less labor in getting him up.
and can be ready to worship him on shorter
notice; In particular is this the case where
a sacred profession and a moral supremacy
are added to the intellectual. Just think t»f
the career of the celebrated preachers and
divines in all ages. Have they not stood like
the images “Nebuchadnezzar the king set
upand all womankind, coquettes and
flirts not excepted, been ready to fell down
and worship, even before the sound of
cornet, flute, harp, saebut, etc. Is not the
faithful Paula, with her beautiful face, pros
trate before poor old, lean, haggard, dying
St. Jerome, in the most splendid painting in
the world, an emblem and a sign of womin's
external power of. self-sacrifice to what
she deems noblest in man? Does
not old Richard Baxter tell us,with delightful
single heartedness, how his wife fell in love'
with him first, in spite of his long pale face;
and how,she confessed, dear soul, after many
years of married life, that she had found him
less bitter and sour than she expected? The
fact is, women are burdened w|h fealty,
faith, reverence, more than they know what
to do with: they stand like a hedge of sweet
peas, throwing out tendrils everywhere for
something high and strong to climb up by,
and when they find it, be ifever so rough in
the bark, they catch upon it. And instances
are not wanting of those who have turned
away from the flattery of admirers to pros
trate themselves at the feet of a genuine hero,
who never wooed them, except by heroic
deeds and the rhetoric of noble life.
Manufacture of Violin and Harp
Strings in Half.
An English paper says: “The manufacture
of strings for musical instruments has been
carried on from time immemorial in some of
the small villages in the Abruzzi, and at the
present time the Neapolitan provinces main
tain their superiority in the production of this
article. They require the greatest care and
dexterity on the part of the workman. The
treble strings are particularly difficult to make,
and are made at Naples, probably because the
Neapolitan from their small size and
leanness, afford the best raw material. They
are made from the small Intestines, which
must be very carefully scraped; the intes
tines are then steeped in alkaline leys,
clarified with a little alum, for four or five
days, until the guts are well bleaohed and
swollen. They are next drawn through an
open brass thimble, and pressed against it
with the nail, in order to smooth and equal
their surface: after which they are washed,
spun or twisted, and sulphured during two
hours. They pre finally polished by friction,
and dried. Sometimes they are sulphured
twice or thrice before being dried, and are
polished between horsehair cords. The
strings manufactured in Italy are noted for
their strength, transparency, brilliancy; and
clearness of tone. This manufacture was
introduced into France by a Neapolitan noble
man, in 1760, who established ia manufactory
at Lyons. This industry is carried on in
.various other towns in Italy, namely,Gubbio,
Foligno, Bologna, Venice, Vicenza, Padua,
Verona and Bassano.
Failure of William H. Webb’s mission
••Pint’s Ratlread to be Carried Out—
Humored Successful Termination of
tlte mosquito trouble.
Managua, January 21,1868.—Mr. William H.
Webb has failed in the chief purpose of his recent
mission to this country- In December last he
■negotiated in New York the project of a new tran
siMonceesion from the Nicaraguan government
—the latter being represented in - the negotiation
by Don Antonio Silva; and Mr. Webb came out
-to,secure the , ratification-of.. .the-arrangement.
Upon his arrival at Managua the new project was
repudiated by President Guzman. The Minister
of Foreign Affairs was then named by the Exe
cutive os commissioner to treat with Mr. Webb.
The government demanded of Mr. Webb an as
surance that he would pay punctually thei
|2d,000; gold, due on the 20tli February proximo
by the old Central American Transit Company,
under their concession. This assurance he gave,
stating that the money would of necessity be paid
by the Norihc American Steamship Company, os
the Transireompany is decidedly Impecunious.
In return Mr. Webb demanded an exclusive
privilege of using the transit for passengerajind
Weight. r The United States Minister -back* up
bis application, telling the President of Nicara
gua that Mr. Seward, on behalf of the govern
ment of the United States, desired suebiexclueive
privilege for Mr. Webb- and his I ' associates.
This assurance was not believed, by the Presi
dent, nor by any one else at all aware of Mr.
Seward’s shrewdness, and surprise is expressed
that Mr.' Dickinson should have compromised
• his * chief by BAbold statement —Thegoymm
ment of Nicaragua peremptorily declined to give
an exclusive privilege, and asMr. Webb would
take nothing less, he left for Panama on theisth
Inst, on his return to the United States
In disgust- The result is looked upon as an
absolute abandonment of the Nicaragua Transit
route, as It is not supposed that will pay
the $20,000 due next month, And thefwiure to
pay it works a forfeiture 0f, the mider
which Mr. .Webb and hia friends have controlled
the transit., ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ —■—

From lVaslilngton-
Washington, Feh. 12.—'TheSupreme Court of
the United States recently announced an opinion
in a wBl case. The suit was brought In the Cir
cuit Court of the United Btates for the District of
Maryland. The decree of the latter court was
reversed, and the case was remanded with direc
tions to enter a decree dismissing the bill for
want of jurisdiction, without prejudice to plain
tiff’s right to bring any suits she may be advised
in the proper court.
- Thcmato point for this decision is that a citi
zen of this district or the citizen of a territory
dses not come nnder that clause of the Constitu
tion relative to the power ofthe Judiciary, which
includes cases between citizens of different States,
several of the defendants concerned in the will
oeing residents of the District of Columbia.
Associate Justices Clifford and Field, and the
Chief , Justice, dissented from the opinion of
One majority of the court. In the paper read by
the first named, the ground was taken that the
motion to dismiss should be denied for the rea
son that according to the constitution and tho
law Of February, 1839, a suit could be brought
in equity as at common law, and that suits from
Citizens of the United States could not be de
barred. '

TUe Admission of Colorado.
Washington, Feb. 12.—The Benato.Committee
on Territories to-day made a report on the Senate
bill to admit the State of Colorado into the
Union, concluding as follows:
As it has been the practice of this government
to admit new States without requiring any speci
fied hihount of population, and as the present*
population of Colorado appears to be equal to or
more than many States heretofore admitted, and
as it appears that ills almost the unanimous
wish of her people to be admitted under the pre
sent bill, and as Congress has expressly invited
her admission bv an enabling act. it seems bat
just, to the people of Colorado that- the plighted
faith of the government should be made good by.
the admission of the State into the Union, which
your commltteo unanimously recommend.

'fhe bill reported by the Committee on Foreign
Affairs concerning the rights of American citi
zens in foreign States came tip as the business of
the morning hour, and a desultory disenssion
arose as to the question of closing the debate
and of disposing of the various amendments and
substitutes that have been already suggested.
Mr. Bankß (Mass.) declared himself unaltera
bly opposed to incorporating in the statutes of
the United States the offensive English principle
that the Legislature can confer or withhold the
power of expatriation. That was the doctrine
of i-ord Palinereton in his despatch to Mr. Ban
croft in 18-19 or 1850. ’
At length, Mr. Banks having allowed the
amendments of Messrs. Bn tier, Spalding and’
Boyer to be offered, moved the previous ques
tion; the effect of which would be to cut off all
other amendments.
The House by a very decided vote refused to
second the previous question.
Mr. Jenckcs (R. 1.) offered his amendment by
way of a substitute, declaring that the rights of
expatriation and of naturalization are declared
tope and to have been part of the publie law of
tim United States, and directing tbe Executive
to insist on the recognition of such rights by the
governments of all other nations.
