When we witness tbe aetcnidLiog

need not wonder tbat bo many tf tbeui
bave dinpepsia. Tbe- ealivary -fluid is
one of tbe necessary secretions required
tor the digestion ot our food, liy some
pbyeiologiets it is considered jnst as es
scntial as tbe gastric juice- It is a most
powerful agent, tbe active principle of
which, when diluted to tbe proper degreo
to bring it iutq contact with every part,
some chemists say, is capr.ble of dir-solv

I tity wasted ty the tobacco user, the sali
vary glauds are taxed to their utmost
capacity, amol worked to dath ; and
and then are only able to furoieb a fluid
deteriorated in quality, and vitiated sali
va must impair digestion. Dr. Good
gives it as bis opinion tbat great evil re
sults from the conveyance to tbe stomach
of tobacco which is mixed with the sali
va. Dr. Cullen says be has found ail
the symptoms of dyspepsia produced by
snuffing, particularly pains of the stora
acb, occurring every day. II 3 felt cer
tain that be did not mistake the caue 4f
these from the fact that from the sudden
interruption of snuffing for some days
the pains ceased, but upon tbe rctuin of
the patient to the habit, tbe paius also
returned. ' Dr. Clay, of Manchester, Eng
and, says it is the sole cuiie of a spe
cies of dyspepsia, which he has witness
ed in a number of cases, the symptoms
being a painful Bcnsation of weight at
the stomach, ag of some bard, indigesti
ble substance pressiug upon a tender
Dr. Warren, of Uoston, says it is a
rare thing iiidecd to find caucer of tbe
gums, tongue and lips in any but a user
of tobacco. lie has, in a practice of
more thun twenty years, particularly
noticed this ; he has also noticed that
when one aide onlyjva aff.-ctei, it was
that on "which the tobacco, the cigar, or
the pipe was habitually retained in con
tact with tbe part. Dr. Elisha Dan-ia,
one of the phyaiciana of the Kew York
Dispensary, says that 'of six cases of
cancer tbat have been nuder his care
within two years, five were those of men
who used tobacco. Druitt, an eminent
London surgeon, and author of a, work
on surgery, testifies substantially to tbe
same general facts.
It may be said that canre is a consti
tutional disease, that it exista in the
blood, aud that the ulcer is but its local
expression ; and tbat, moreover, if the
picdispoeiliou did not exist, iio amount
of smoking or chewing would ever pro
duce a cancerous ulcer. Granting all
this, the predisposition might exist fur
years, perhaps for a lifetime, or until Na
ture, through some of the emunctories of
the system or by a critical aclhn of some
kind, should fiud meaus of removing tbe
pnison from the blood, in a way less dis
agreeable and lfss painful to tbe patients
than through an ulcerous sore on the
face, wliicb is seldom or never healed.
But when a man puts a quid of tobacco
or a cigar into bis mouth, Nature directs
all her energies to that point, a cancerous
ulcer is the result, and in a majority of
cases, all hope of a cure is at an cod.
TLus wc see tbat the use of tobacco
first, originates various diseases ; second
ly, it-aggravates those which owe their
origin to other causes thirdly, it pre
cipitates the development of those to
which a predisposition exists, and which
but for its use might have slumbered.
And, besides this, Dr. John King, of
Cincinnati, asserts that the systems of
chronic invalids who use tobacco are by
its use rendered, to a great degree, un
eueceptiffllT to tbe action of the various
remedies employed for their cure. Dr.
Williard Tarker, of New York, says
that although tobacco users appear to be
as strong as other persons, yet when at
tacked by disease they are found to bave
less constitutional stamioe, and are able
to.oppose but a feeble resistance to its
onset ; while from wounds or iujuries of
any kind they recover with difficulty, if
at all, while other persons get well speed
ily. Moreover, Dr. Parker says that in
his practice he has never yet found an
employee in a tobacco factory who was
perfectly Bound and healthy.
Anything which has such a depressing
effect upon tbe vital energies as tobacco
must necessarily render the habitual
nsera of it fit subjects to be carried off
by any epidemic which comes along.
Statistics show tbat epidemics count
among their victims a greatly larger num
ber of males than of females. Of those
who die of yellow fever, the proportion
of tbe former to tbe latter is said to be
as three to one This is accounted for
by the greater addiction of the raaW sex
to habits of dissipation, of which the

using of tobacco' is one- This, taken m
connection with tbe drinkiug of ardent
spirits, tells tbe whole story.' Hitherto
in attributing to this latter cause so large
a shaie in the production of disease, the
effects nf tobacco have been, in a great
meosure, overlooked. It is only of late
years, since the consumption of tobacco
among our people has increased to such
an alarming extent, aud its effects iu the
production of disease bave become bo
palpable as to be no longer igupred, that
our physicians have come to more fully
recognize its agency, until at length some
have been heard to declare it as their
firm belief tbat .t he effects of tobacco in
lowering the general tone of the system,
and thus rendering its votaries suscepti
ble to disease, arc fully as great as those
of rwu. Dr. Alcott says 'The German
physicians state in their periodicals that
of tbe deaths occurring Among men in
that country, between eighteen and thirty-five
years of agp, one-half die from
the effects of smoking. A Paris physi
cian says that six cigars a day will
shorten a man's life five years. We are
not yet prepared to treat this question
with, mathematical strictness, but it may
be regarded as certain that, however
moderately one may use the weed, and
however long he may escape disease, bis
life will be sbortenoJ to some extent by
SUCU Uo6. '

As Awful Lonesome Man in Cali
fornia. In the shanty, which, in Cali
fornia's early day?, did duty as office for
tbe banking, postal aud express of Wells,
Fargo &: Co., in Marysville, there sat,
oue Saturday evening, a misanthropic
and dejected looking individual, whose
long aud unkempt hair and beard, cowhide
boots and rough dress bespoke the miner.
For over an hour be sat there picture of
despair, with not a word or a look from
any one present. Miners came, left their
"duet," took their coin iu return, and ex
changed greetings with all present, save
the oue morose mau whose apathy noth
ing, it seemed, could disturb. Finally
there entered a young ruiuer with a beam
ing face, who, after completing bis busi
ness at the counter, turned to the agent
in charge and remarked that on the pre
vious Saturday be had some dealings
with the bank, "and thought that some
mistake had been make iu his account.
"Guces not," said tbe agent. "Our
cash was nil right and I reckon we keep
our books pretty straight "
But upon the request of the miner that
the account should be examined, the ac
count was looked at, and it was fonnd
that through a clerical error, tbe miner
had paid just $50 to much.
"That's just what I make it," said the
Litter; "and here's your money." With!
this he threw down tbe gold, and recier
ed the thanks of the agent
While this conversation was in pro
gress, the misanthrophic miner had pre
served bis look of utter indifference;
but, when he saw the money actually re
turned, his face brightened np, be rose
slowly, walked toward the honest miner
with slow aud solmn step, .and said :
"Young man, don't you fee! awful
lonesome in this country 1"
A SEARCHER after truth writes to ask
us which is grammatically correct, to say
"the house is building" or "the house is
being built;" "the street is being paved 1"
There is a wide diversity of opinion upon
this subject ; but we are inclined to favor
"is being built," for tbe following reason:
Sppose yoa want to express another kind
of an idea, would you say for instance
"John is spanking" or "John is being
spauked ? The difference to you may
seem immaterial, but it is a matter of con
siderable importance to Jonny ; and it is
probable that if any choice were given
him, be woul select the former alternative.
You assert, we say, that "Hannah is
hugging," which by the way would be
a very improper thing for Hannah to do,
it would be positively scandalous, indeed.
Precisely a similar idea is conveyed if you
say "Hannah is being hugged," because
it is tbe peculiarity cf the act that is
hardly ever one sided ; there is no sel
fishness about it. And it is the same
wilh kissing. "Jane is kissing," is just
exactly as we should say, ''Jane is being
kissed ; and tbe sensation is the same.
Jones and his wife were always quar
reling about their comparative talent for
keeping a fire. She always insisted that
just as soon .is he attempted to re-arrainge
the sticks with the tongs he pat the fire
out. 0ne night the church bell sounded
tbe alarm, and Jones sprang for his fire
bucket, eager to rush to the conflagra
tion. "Mr. Jones," cried bis wife as be
reached the door, "Mr. Jones, take the
tongs?" .. :
Here is tbe last of a shoemaker, be
yond which let no cobbler go : A lady

said to her : .Is tbat tbe only olji-ctioa

lady, -"Well then, madame, if you take

find that objection gradually wear away."

From the Wilmington, (Del ) Commer
cial of the lith itist , we copy the follow
ing, the heroin of which, it will be seen
is a resident of oar up railroid ceigblbf,
Altoona : -
It seems that a well to-do farmer, by
tbe name of M , living near Altoona,
Pa , has three handsome and accomplish
ed daughters, aged respectively 17, 20
and 23, the two eldest being the heroin
cs of our story. Miss M. the elder was
blest wjth a W:!jjington lover, who was
in every way acceptable to the fond par
ents, and iu a short time it was said that
both were to bo made ''one." Miss M.,
the younger of the two (and, it is said,
the handsomer,) also had a lover, who
resided near her oVn home, among the
grand defiles of the Allegheuies, but not
so acceptable to the "old folk" as - the
suitor for the band and heart of ber sis
ter. Finally, a Philadelphian, iu company
with the Wilmington swain, vbited the
family, and being at first sight captivated
by the beauty of Miss SI. No. 2, he im
mediately went to work, with all tbe
warmth and ingenuity of a young aud
ardent lover, to make the atUcbmeut re
ciprocal. Iu this, by a bountiful profu
sion of costly gold presents, be not only
succeeded in alienating the affection of
the j'oung lady from her first love, but
gained the esteem and confidence of the
parents aud friends. The star of the
mountain was for a time obscured, and
tho Philadelphian had everything his
It is said that "first love can never be
forgotten." So it proved in this instance
aud after tho first excitement of costly
presents aud a brilliant, fashionable future
bad lost its novelty, the feelings of the
young lady agaiu yearned after him to
the mountain born, and in spite of the
protestations jf parents and friends bhe
returned to Li? fond embrace.
Things were now getting desperate,
and it was finally resolved to send the
young lady to reside with a well-to-do
aunt in the western part of this citv,
where she could be under tl-e rye of the
Wilmington suitor for Sliss SI. No. 1,
and near the '.jilted" Philadciphiau.
The Wilmington hero was plentifully
supplied with money, and instructed to

or any other place where oho desire! to
go, care being taken to keep ber contin
ually under tbe surveillance of some par
ty who was interested in restoring the
Philadelphian to his former place in her
affection. Thus things went on for some
time. The Opera House and other
laces of amusement weie largely pat
ronized, and the Wilmiogton gentleman
was assiduous in bis attentions, until
Miss SI. No. 1 became jealous of ths at
tentions of her lover to her sister.
In this complication of affairs, explan
ations were unavoidable, aud worse than
confusion was tbe result. The exiled
young lady determined to assert her in
dependence, and make a bold strike for
liberty, which plan she successfully car
ried out on Saturday, February 1, taking
all her clothing and other effects with
her, siucc which time she has not been
heard of though anxiously searched for
in every quarter.
Thus the case rests at the present time,
and, as may well be supposed, the par
ents, who are now hero, and with her
other friends, are greatly exercised, and
not a little alarmed at the sudden and
continued disappearanac of the young
lady. The general impression now is
that the bold mountaineer is apprised of
ber whereabouts, and will eoou find the
object of his heart's adoration.
