Tobacco-Its Effects "on the Human
Constitution, Physical, Intellectual
and Moral
Tbe effects of tobacco on the personal
appearance are often great and striking.
It is remarked that thnee who are em
ployed in tobacco factories and in tobac
co stores have a jellow, dried up look ;
a look wl.'.ch it not symptomatic of any
known diarapo, but v.-Ltcu is peculiar,
characteristic, and indescribable. They
carry with thorn the appetiracce if pre
mature old ago. Its rfiocts on tbe ners
of tho weed are, to a greater or less' ex
tent, the same. We enn clniost always
detect-iu (he withered, Lleai-fyed c.M
eron, the derolte of the pijio. Thos.i
who wish, therefore, to preserve a fretb,

and their good, looks gener.dly. Lad bet

I It is an acknowledged principle in
j physiology that whatever enfeebles the
body must, in tbe eod, iu some degree
enfeeble the mind. This is pre-erainetit-1y
true of tobacco. That it causes loss
of memory, ia a fact long known to phy
sicians. Such was the opinion of Dr.
CulI"U, the celebrated physician and
j tredical author of Edinburgh. Such was
j the opinion 'f Dr. Hush, the father of
American Medicine. Oilier men of note
too, besides phyicians have testified to
the same fact. The Able Migne, in a
It ttor of late date to the director of one
of the great seminaries iu I 'aria, con
demning the use of tobacco, makes men
tion of it In this connection, M. Moigi
uo, author of various mathematical trea
tises, gives his own experience, lie was
an inveterate annffer and smoker, from
which he says he experienced a diminish
ed sensibility of the nervous system and
a rapid loss of memory, not otily of
things which occurred some time previ
ously, bat of passing events. Ho had
learned several languages by their roots,
but was often at a loss .for a word.
Alarmed at this condition of things, he
resolved to renounce the use of snuff
and cigars forever.' lie soon after re
covered his memory completely, and
also his nervous sensibility. M. Derillon
found that of the ' pupils attending the
Polytechnic, at Paris, 102 smoked, while
58 did not. Arranging the two categor
ies in the order of merit, according to the
result of the examinations, he found that
tbe non smokers held in every grade the
higher rank, and that smokers deteriora
ted from their entering to their leaving
the school. Facts like these induced
the Minister of Public Instruction, in
1661, to issue to the directors of colleges
and schools throughout tho French Em
pire, a circular, forbidding tobacco to the
No close abserver can have failed to
notice the effects of tobacco in producing
irritability of temper. A religions jour
nal of late date says : "One whom we
bad long known, esteemed, and admired
for his former piety and his bright and
ready conversational powers, is now so
engrossed with his pipe that a simple
question has to be put to him the second
time befpre his attention can be gained ;
and he is no irritable, so short, and so in
different iu hid replies, and eo intent on
his smoking, as to put an end to social
Every one has observed the morose
cess of the habitual smoker, when de
prived for a length of time of his accus
tomed indulgence. How quick to take
offense, hjw short and crabbed, perhaps
sarcastic in his replies- Bat let him for
few minutes get a pipe or a cigar be
tween his teeth, as the smoke earls in
graceful wreaths about bis head, bis face
relaxes into a bread smile, - and he be
if -si "S
comes at qpee as bland and courteous as
a Chesterfield.
Tbe irritability of temper and general
peevishness above noticed may be said
to be one, of tbe earlier stages oC the
tobacco disease. Wit"-some persons it
never goes any farther than this, but
with others it progresses into . moodiness
and melancholy, sometimes into hypo
chondria ; while with not a few it never
stops short of insanity. That tobacco
is one efficient cause of insanity, we have
the testimony of physicians in charge
of lunatic asylums. Dr. Woodward, of
the Massachusetts Insane Hospital, and
others.have testified to this. That such
is the case is perhaps more strikingly
demonstrated in France than in any oth
er country. From 1812 to lS32'the
tobacco tax in France amounted to 28,
000.000 of francs, and the lunatic asy
lums contained 8,000 patients. Twenty,
five years later the revenue from tobacco
had reached 180,000,000 of francs, while
there were 44,000 paralytic and lunatic
patients in the hospitals ; showing thai
the increase of insanity bad kept paco
with the increase of tbe revenue from
tobacco. These statistics were presen
ted to the Academy of Science by M.
Jolly, who in presenting thorn took occa-'
sion to say that, "the immoderate use of
tobacco, and more especially of tho pipe,
produced a weakness in the brain and in
the spinal marrow, which canees mad
ness." Since wo commenced the writing of
this essay we read in the Rochester
(N. Y ) Democrat, copied from the Nash
ville (Tend.) Banner, an accouut of a
young man in Nashville, a tobacco chew
er, who being disappointed in an affair
of the heart, endeavored to find cousoy
tion for his wounded feelings in chewing
an increased amount of tobacco
result was, that in less than a fort-night
he was sent to the insano asylum a rav
ing maniac auolher victim of the tobac
co phign1?. lie cheirrrl "not wisely, hut
too well."
A Lightning Trip. -
From tho Kloiia C'uzcHe, v.-e Iiuia
that there were lively times at the M'
Iotyre mines on Thursday last. A train
of cars, loaded with eoal, were just start
ing for the down trip on the inclined
plane, when o.ie of them broke loose,
and all alone and unchecked commenced
the twenty five hundred feet run. The
velocity it attained was inconceivably
swift, and tho runaway ear must have
looked like a streak of greased lightning
as it flew along the down hill track.
As it reached the bottom of the plane
the safety -ear of the mines just reached
the mouth of the pit. A terrific collision
was the result. The safety car, weighed
?500 pounds, was struck by the coal car
and hurled np into tho air mauy feet and
cntfiuea tiowu tnrongn a iiouse over tne
There was not enough left of either
the coal or safety car to make a decent
sized toothpick. While the car was on
its destructive down trip one of the
wheels flew off, and crushed through a
bottee in its line of travel, going clean
through it like a canuon ball fresh from
a hundred pounder. In this house were
two men, who fortunately were not in
jured, but the scare they sustained wae
about as bad as death.
No one was hurt about tho mines,
which, under the circumstances, is re
markable. What IIobacr Geibley Said. He
said that 100,000 die annually by strong
drink, and that total abstainers are no
more fanatical than a man who put out a
fire that is consuming his own bouse.
He said that every glass of strong
drink taken shortens life that he has
been a total abstainer for forty years ;
and that if he had taken but one glass a
day dnring those forty years, his life
would have been shortened by several
years, and that he would now have been
in his grave. In his childhood he was
sickly ; but at sixty years of age he had
a better hold of life than he had at five.
Ue said that prohibition iu Maine is
not a failure. In passing through it he
did not see strong drinks from one end
to the other. They may doubtless be
found, but public temptation is removed.

From the Philadelphia Tress, Mar. 10.
The following interesting facts con
cerning the arrest of the most notorious
counterfeiters on this continent were col
lected by a reporter for the Press last
eveniag. ' The arrest of tbe offenders
took place on. Friday night, as much to
the surprise of the counterfeiters as the
knowledge thereof will be to the com
mnnity :
In the early part of November last a
telegram was sent by the district attor
ney of Cincinnati to the Solicitor of the
Treasury, Mr. E. U. Banfield, requesting
that an officer be sent at once to that
city for the purpose of ferreting out the
actors in a great counterfeiting scheme.
The matter was referred to Mr. II. U.
Whitley, chief of the Secret Service,
who immediately detailed Mr. Charles E.
Acchisi, one of the most expert detec
tives in the country, to investigate the
affair. This gentleman started for Cin
cinnati, and discovered that one Milos
Ogle, alias Charles Deeriug, alias Charles
Davis, counterfeiter and burglar, one of
the "Orino gang and partner of John
P. Jl'Cartcey, nlso a notorious counter
feiter, together with his brother, Johu
Ogles, aud Johu Morgan, were nt work
cutting a plato for the purpose of en
graving $5 greenbacks. The detective
was there about fifteen days, but iu con
sequence of his presence being required
at the conrts of Iudianapolis, he wa3
compelled to leave without affecting ai y-
Upon his return to Cincinnati it ap
peared that the party that had been there
bad taken flight, probably scenting dan
ger. Subsequently John Ogle was ar
rested at Kansas City, where he imme
diately after jumped his bail. The effi
ccis then lost the ti'ail of tho gang, but
Col. Whitley continued his exertions,
aud warned his deputies to keep a sharp
: lookout. At the same time complaints
: reached him from Indiana, OLio, Penn
sylvania and New iovk, of the passage
of counterfeit greenbacks, and the chief s
assistant, Mr. J. C. Nettleship, detailed
Mr. Auchisi to again investigate the mat
ter, directing him to make his head
quarters in this city and begin operations
His line of conduct while in Philadel
phia can be best understood by his own
explanation, which is here quoted : " I
enme to this city immediately after re
ceiving orders, and soon struck oil, aud
began to plan for the capture. I knew
these people were old offenders, and were
very smart, Some of them bad served
terms in the penitentiary. An entirely
new system, therefore had to be devised
in order to secure the evidence for their
conviction I selected un able assistant
and began. I first went to one of the
Prison Commissioners, on Walnut street,
and asked him for a pass to tho Peniten
tiary for the purpose of seeing a burglar
there. lie demurred at first, but finally
gave me one.
"The man whom I desired to see was
James Foster, who had been 1 sent up'
for four years for burglary. I said to
my assistant, 'You buy some cigars and
go there and tell him that a fellow by
the name of Texas, another burglar, sent
them to him, aud desires to kuow wheth
er he can do anything for him in his
trouble ' Tho point was to get a note
from him tc some one who frequeuted
Charlie Weisncr's place, No. 326 St.
John street, and I knew that Texas
would bo the best man, as he lived near
there. " .
"The prisoner was of course deceived,
and he gave a note' to a man by the
name of Price. My assistant reported to
me, and showed me the note. I then
sent bim to Charley Weisner'e, where he
asked for Price and was immediately in
troduced to him. lie in this way got a
certain footing, and by frequenting that
place and other localities where counter
feiters and thieves thronged, he soon
made their acquaintance, and iu a mea
sure secured their, confidence, because
they began to regard him as a thief.
" I went tar Ladomus and purchased
three finger rings, which I had marked,
and giving them to my assistant, I di
rected Lim to trade them with these peo
ple for counterfeit moner. In this he
was successful, securing a considerable
amount of the trash. My aim was high-
! er than the retail dealers, however ; I

I had
! mane mem imagine mat my assistant
was a burglar. Frequent visits were
made to Baltimore, during which my
assistant would write letters to the gang,
which were answered.
"I discovered in this way that Mark
Reinhart aliat 'The Milkman,' who runs
a milk route, and resides No. 833 Locust
street, was a heavy operator. He used
to meet tho gang at Tenth and Locust
streets, which was the rendezvous. See
ing that this man's intimate friend was
one Ranee Abrahams, alAt George Ra
lentham, ali James Cole, and that he
had served tight years in the Peniten
tiary, I was convinced that I was right.
I told ay man (o try fiance first. Ranee
jtold him that he hadn't any counterfeit
! money, but that be would introduce him
to a man that would sell him alt that he
"Tbe meeting that followed was watch
ed by me, and thereat the puichaso oi
8500 counterfeit money was effected.
This purchase was effected at the corner
of Tenth and Locust streets on a Thurs
day evening. During this time I dis
covered that John Ogle and John Mor
gan had been in Philadelphia, where
they had sold large amount of counter
feit five dollar notes. I started at once
for Baltimore, where it was suspected
they were. Information was subsequent
ly received, hawever, that they had gone
West. The telegraph was put into re
qnistion and officer Batts iucceeded iu
arresting them whilo iu the car; at Vin
cennes, Indiuua. John Morgan had 47,
000 bad money on bis person ; $1,700
were found in the possession cf Ogle,
likewise bogus.
"These arrests were unfortunately j
published all over the country, and his
brother, Miles Ogle, who was supposed
to be in Baltimore, 'jumped.' Operations
were next principally instituted against
Chaile Veisuer, Uanee, and 'The Milk
man,' wh ielr resulted in tbe decoying of
all iu such a way as to enable me to ar

money spent for wines aud nia't liquors,
and add to this tbe sum employed in the
various purposes of the drink traffic, and
the gross amount is shown to be cm

The resr.lr of this traffic is proved to
be :

Now, what is tie duty of the sober
people of America? Tin ia a question
worthy the attention of the ablest miuds
in our nation. That ra are fast drilling

try the young are sowing the seeds of
disease and death in their system by
the continual and increasing use of poi
sonous stimulants, is patent to all
Onr law makers are dnmb to the Cries,
groans, sighs tears, remonstrances anil
petitions that fiil the air and crowd our
legislative halls, la aome parte of this
State monster mass meetings are being
held and the beet men are openly and
publicly denouutitig tbe action of thosi
entrusted to faske law for the gnveru

about to be iuangrrrsted by the all pow
erful "whisky ring.' The duty cf ths
people now is to demand the downfall of
the driuk, demon, the ntter annihilation
of tbe accursed traffic. Lit tuere be no
compromise. If our legislature wiM not
give us a good law, one that will permit
tbe people, (who are ouly too anxious)
to drive this accursed traffic from our
midet Thm we say, it w clearly tbe
duty o f the people to at ouce see that a
