Take Particular . Notice.
Dr. I. addresses all those who have injured themselves
by Improper Indulge uce and solitary habits, which ruin
both body and mind, unfitting them for either business,
study, society or marriage, ,
These are some of the sad and metaucholly effects pro
ducted by early habits of youth, viz : Weakness of the
Beek and Limbs, Pales in the Head, Dimness of Sight,
Less of Muscular Power, Palpitation of the heart, Dye
popsy Nervous Irratibli ty, Derangement: of the Digestive

to be dreaded—Loss of Memory, therdealon of Ideas, De

What a pity that a yoang man, 'the hope of his' wan
, the darling of his parents, should be snatched from
prospects and eejoymenta of Bib, by the consequence
of deviating from the path of nature and indulging in a
certain secret habit. Spch persons Hoer, before contem
reflect theta sound mind and body are the most neces
sary requisites to promote connubial happiness. Indeed,
without these, the journey through life becomes a weary
pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darkens to the view

the melaneholly reflection that the happiness of another
becomes blighted with our own.
Disease of Imprudence.
When the misguided and Imprudent votary of pleasure
finds that he has imbibed the seeds of this pantiel dis
ease, it too often hapens that an di-timed sense of shame
or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those
who, from emotion and respectability, can- alone be-.
friend him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms oil
this borr d disease make their appearance, such as ul
cerated sore throat, diseased , nose, nocturnal pains in
the head and limbs, dimness f sight, deatness, nodes on
the shin bones and arms, blotches on the h-ad, face and
extremities, progressing with trightfhl rapidity, till at
last the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
in, and the victim of this awful disease become a horrid
object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his
dreatfa l sufferings, by sending him to ti that Urdiscov
vered Country from whence no traveler returns."
It is a aulancholly fact that thousands fall victims to
this terrible disease, owing to the unakilfullness of igno

HOUSE OF REPItiIiiENTATIVES.
Mr. CALTERT offered the following: Provided
that no portion of the appropriation in this
bill shall be applied to keeping, supporting or
equipping negroes or fugitive slaves for service
in the army of the United States.
Mr. &muss, (Pa.) for reasons which he stated,
hoped that this would be voted down.
Mr. Womorra said he had written to the
War Department for information on the subject
but received no answer. He had learned that
slaves when they wanted to return to their
masters had been restrained from so doing by
military authority. 'Eight slaves had teen
killed or shot by military order while trying
to escape from the control of the military au
Mr. CALVIRT'S proposition waa rejected.
