TUE CRIMINAL CLASS.
What shall be done with the violators
of the penal laws? This is a question
about which many men talk flippantly;
but only a few have stopped to consider
it fully and in all its aspects. Magistrates
and custodians of convicts know from
painful-experience that a system Of prison
discipline has not yet been devised hav
ing a direct and positive tendency to re
form offenders who are brought under its
provisions. Nay, all the systems tried
hitherto have only had the effect to harden
and reduce to desperation most_of the in
dividuals who have been subjected to
them. Even`hell, according to all authen
tic reports from that fierce dominion, has
not reduced a single sinner to the condi
tion of a penitent. Yet it is fair to pre
sume that there, under the adniinistration
of infinite wisdom and discretion, punish
as such, has wrought the
best it. is capable of.
,In England so complete has been the
failure of all efforts to transform bad
men into good ones by any plan of (near
ceration that attempts in that , direction
have been given up. Now, upon the
conviction .of individuals charged with
crimes, they are, by orderi from the
courts, sent back to the places
whence they came, placed under the in-.
spection of the police, and allowed to take
up and pursue any lawful calling that .
marsuit them. This is a close approach
to a system of universal forgiveness; the
distinction being that if, under this
s cheme, .a convict shall commit a fresh
offence be is liable to be at once arrested
and imprisoned under the prior condem
nation. The results of this scheme are
much better than those that have been
Produced by any system of imprisonment
Of course, such treatment.of criminals
doesnot comport with prevalent concep
tions of the nature and necessity of retri
butive justice. And it must be confessed
that this scheme, based essentially upon
exhibitions of mercy, does not ;lamed
infallibly in reaching the desired end.
The inclination to and the habit of trans
gression are frequently too strong to lY.t
counteracted by restraining influences of
any description. This development has
led many thoughtful but stern perscals to
the conclusion that whenever a delAberate
offender passes into the grip of the laws
the most salutary method of der.ding with .
him is that which takes his life. What
ever may be his hereafter, socT,ety in this
world is well rid of him WA the conta
gion of his example.
Multitudes of peOple s . -whose sensibili
ties would quickly revolt against confess
ing to faith in this bereft and sanguinary
plan of penal administration come much
nearer to it than they are willing corn- 1 1
monly to allow. If a man commits a
crime their first impulse is to punish him
commensurately with his conduct. It is
this spontaneous sentiment of justice—
this fiery instinct:of revenge—that flashes
out horribly in summary executions by
lynch law. 'Closely related to this feeling
is the passionate-outburst of dissent that
is sure to follow the pardon of a convicted
criminal. -So much torture, for so much
crime, is the remedy prescribed by the
masses, whose cogitations do not go
down to the causes of human depravity,
for all . who disturb the peace and order of
the community. •
This subject needs for its true solution
a broader treatment. It may be that au
age, or even some ages, will elapse befoie
all the facts essential to the ultimate gen
eralization shall be discovered and mar
shalled in proper rank, but when the enk
shall be reached, it will be seen how little
of, genuine reason or discretion is em
bodied - in either of the present conceri
dons of criminal jurisprudence.

can be obtained from the caption at the head
of this article; for of all diseases which impair
human health and shorten human life, none are
more prevalent than those which affect the ir.ngs
and pulmonary tissues. Whether we regard lung

malady. or as 1 deep lesion corroding and dis
solving the pulmonary structure, it is always
pregnant with evil and foreboding of disaster.
In no class of maladies should the physician or
the friends and family of the patient be more
seriously forewinsed thin In those of the lures,

went is most desirable, and it is then that danger
can be warded off and a cure erected. In DR,

sirrapothies that disturb the harmonious work

cough, the painful respiration, the sputum
