SENTIMENT IN NEW YORK.
EDITOR PATRIOT ARD UNION :-L-Dtar Sir :
It seems to be a " teas up," as they say, whe-'
ther we are to•witness a renewal of the deplo
rablis scenes of loot Week or not, Were I in
the. interest, of an administration journal I
might be able to refer to the probabilities of
the near - future, with more precision—for I
might then know whether the GovernMent is
or is nOt,atill bent upon ite original purpose of
inciting a popular outbreak in this city for the
sake of the pretext which it would afford for
prooleiming the metropolis under martial law.
The object of a conscription' now is plainly a.
political and not a military one. Could fifteen
thousand Detnooratie votes be removed to the
seat of war, and could military despotism be
freely exercised over us, there is no question
_that, the shoddy
_party could control the
State next fall , and
,a year fromthat time.
This is fully understood, and I think Governor
Seymour will show adroitness enough to b),,eit
the outrageous-game, no matter how 'often it
may be attempted. The Organization for re
listance to the draft was, as nothing to the
organization to , incite a • riot, planned and per
fected by the Republican leaders here and in
Washington. -Do not fear, however, but- that
New York Democracy can.outgeneral its oppo
nents. It is 'hardly probable that the Cabinet
will permit a 'rupture to take place between
itself and Gov. Seymour, as the foot is too well
understood that such a state of airfare would
lead to a civil strife of equal (if riot superior)
proportions with the rebellion wit?: New Jer
sey will fight the administration armies aide
by side with New York troops'-at fire . minutes
notice; so soon as the military 'power of the
central government shall be exerted. over--her
citizens instead of that rightfully . belonging to
her own soverei g nty. -In-rorcmg-rire-istme oI
State rights *the Abolitionists have exposed
their policy too soon. - I caonot believe that the
draft will be seriously attemptitd again in this
section—for any child knows that it must lead
to a state of things analagouif to that - Of the
French Revolution. Would, that - the - coming
year had passed ! It is full of doubt and dread
forebOding. The turn in affairs, it strikes me,
has sealed the fate of the war for the Union. -
From this out the 11. 8. titmice will not, can
not be kept to their maximum strength—the
good will of the loyal Democracy is lost, for
the prosecution of a war prostitute& to the
basest political ends. The Scouth will be
recognized before Mr. Lincoln 'quits office, on
the pretext that the opposition refused to sup
ply men and money. I mean recognized by
the United States Government. The failure-of
the war will be charged directly upon the
party who have so 'far don/ all the hard fight
ing and won all tbe victories. The next Fre
iidential election- bids fair to be a bloody one
I hope you see a better time coming, but I
confess that I do not.
With wishes for the welfare of yourself and
able journal, and kind regards,
I am, sir, yours faithfully,
P. P. N.
Purposes of the Administration.
To the Editor of -the World :
Stu : There are some penile who uncharita.
bly, although with seeming honesty, consider
that the Government is courting resistance to
its.otlieers charged with the enforcement of the
draft; that a military campaign against arival
political party is about opening; that New.
York, and not Virginia. is to constitute the seat
of war for the next three or four months ; that
Meade's uplifted sword was purposely stayed
from descending upon the - head of the bold
rebel Lee, inasmuch as his (Lee's), certain de
feat and possible Surrender would hare roil
dered.coascription superfluous and ridiculous.
That General Meade is to be relieved of his
command, and that under another and less vic
torious and honored a leader, the brave old
army of the-Potomac is to be marched froni the
field, placed in garrisons about the Empire
city and State, and converted from corps -of
heroic soldiers into squads of kidnapping police.
That Massachusetts is expected to furnish vol-
Unteers to help enforce the draft here. That
" crushing the rebellion" is played • out at
Washington.„ and, for variety, the crushing of
northern Democracy is to be attempted with a
system, an energy and a use of strength such,
as, had it been so applied, might have "sub
jugated" the South in a year's time.
Monstrousas these opinions may Appear,
they are based upon reasons by no means trifling.
First. It is easier, cheaper, q ticker and every
way better to encourage volunteering than to
draft men. It is going to cost the Government
and certain cities together from five to eight
hundred dollars for every an who, being
drafted and not furnishing a substitute or pay
ing the exemption fee, shall tie forced into a
uniform and the awkward squad. The machi
nery for conscripting is fabulously extensive.
The opposition made'everywhere to the draft
renders the process exceedingly slow, and ope
rates as a diversion in favor of the enemy, and
is dirt etly in his interest among foreign powers.
Second, If, es aleged, a war with Eogiaod
is imminent, volunteering for the defense of our
flag and honor against that arrogant empire
would, as every school boy knows, be sponta
neous among able bodied men in this and other
States. Third. Three hundred, thousand.men
are not neede:. by the GoveirnifiClA ; but Con
trol over the press of New Yerky the Yet" of
NEW YORK. July 22.

her people, the rulings of her courts and the
stateemaii-like policy of. her Governor, •is
deemed the most important consideration of
the hour by the leaders of a party which, un
less exercising despotic-sway between this and
the next general election, is doomed to fall away
from sheer rottenness and corruption.
It is a pity, indeed, that views Ruch as I have
named are held by any considerable body Of .
men, and-a greater pity that - inch cogent rea
sons should be advanced in their support. Do
you, sir, believe that there is a shadow of truth
in these lamentable theories _ .
A new medical work, by Dr. Dio LEWIS, con
tains many novel and striking views of hygienic
agents in etrengtLening the lungs and prevent
ing consumption. We shall extract some of
his views, for the benefit of our readers. The

A CAM OF CONSUMPTION.
Every species of dust must prove injurious.
Woikers in those factories where tools are

VALUE OF PURE MIL
The steamer Londonderfy left Liverpool for
Sligo, on Friday, December 2, 1848, with two
hundred passengere, mostly emigrants.' A
storm soon came en. The captain ordered the
passengers into the steerage cabin, which was
eighteen feet long, eleven wide, and seven high.
The hatches were closed, andh tarpaulin fas
tened over this only entrance to the cabin.—
The ',oil* creatures were now condemned to
breathe the same air over and over again.—
Then followed a dreadful. Beene. The groans
of the dying, the nurses and shrieks oT thee°
not yet in the agonies of death, must have been
inconceivably horrible. The struggling mass
at length burst open the hatches, and the mate'
was called to gaze at the fearful spectacle.—
Seventy two were already dead, many were
dying, their,bodies convulsed, the blood start
ing from their nostrils, eyes and ears. It does
not appear that the captain designed to suffo
cate his passengers, but that he was simply ig
norant of the fact that air which has pealed to
and fro in the lungs, becomes a deadly poison.

A hundred times have my consumptive pa
tients expressed surprise that the wet weather,
in which I have insisted they should go out as
usual, has not injured them—that they even
breathe more . Freely thou on ploe,Ocnt

in-doors. Give him sufficient clothing, proteot
his feet carefully, and he may go out freely in
sleet, snow, and wind. Ignotaee of this
has killed thousands.
ABOUT NIGHT AIR
Consumptives, and all invalids, and indeed
persons in heal th, are cautioned to avoid the
night air. Do those who offer this advice for
get that there is no otherair at night but "night
air ?" Certainly we-cannot breathe day air
during the night Do they mean that we should
shut ourselves up In air-tight rooms, and
breathe over and over again, through half the
twenty-fourhours, the atmosphere we have al
ready poisoned ? We have only the choice be
tween night air pure, and night air poisoned
with the exhalations from our skins and lungs,
perhaps fromluoge already disease]. •
OROUNDLXBB INAIt OF A.DBAUGHT.
Many persons indulge in a very silly dread
of a draught. It is,only by motion in the at
mosphere that ourlungs obtain the purest air.
If at night the air move briskly directly over
your bed, your lungs wilt receive precious sup
plies. If yon cannot endure this direct draught
you must deny yourself a great luxnry; I
once thought that a draught at night directly,
over my head was a thing to be avoided. Now
I seek it as one of the real blessings of life.—
My wife, who inherited a consumptive taint,
was ever guarding against night air. Now elle
sleeps with two open windows at one end of
the bed, and ail open doh at the other. Nei
ther of ins have had a cold for several years.
Every onemust exercise his own judgment and
prudence. I should lie sorry were my words
to lead any one into an injurious exposure.—
But among the many hundreds—l might say
thousands—whom I have advised to sleep with
open windoirs, I have never known a single
peraOn to be seriously injured, even tempora
rily; and, I mar add, that almost without ex
ception, so far as I have known, they' would
not return to their former-habit of sleeping in
unventilated rooms. At first you may contract
a cold, but if you bathe freely in cold water,
and employ vigorous friction upon the parts
exposed while in bed, even this may be avoid.:
ed. But after a few weeks' experience it will
be quite unnecessary for the physiologist to
lecture you on the subject. You will yturself
take to exhorting your friends upon the impor
t ance of well ventilated bedrooms. oao of the
compensations of our great •war will be found
in the conviction among a million returned
soldiers that night air is not a poison; and
that draughts are less dangerous than minis
balls. Of course I ant not unaware that what
I have said on sleeping in a draught will meet
with very general reprobation, but it is not the
only case in which false education and preju
dice have undertaken to ignore a great natural
fact. I can adduce the experience of thousands
in favor of a free exposure to night air and
winds, and after a wide observation I have
never met one person who has tried eue'h ex
posure for one month and spoke against it.
WE EAT TOO MUCH.
In all countries a majority of the population
consumes too much food. But, in America,
where it is easy for all classes to obtain large
quantities of. rich food, the evil is well-nigh
universal. I am confident that ninety •nine
persons in every hundred eat too much.

AN INCIDENT OP TR! PITT STREET ALARM;
CRE.—Among the wounded lying in the Thir
teenth Ward Station House on the morning of
the shooting , was James Stephens, a child only
eight years of age, who was shot in the right
arm. He lay quite patiently on his left side;
and only moaned , when his arm wati touched.
Our reportee.seeing him so helpless asked
where his parents lived, tind having.ebtained
the necessary, information , set out to loot. for
them, and was successful• after about an• hour's
search. The father stout able man, Mil

lie could scarcely believe that his child was
shot, and remarked that the soldiers "must
have meant mischief or they would not have
fired so low as to hit a child like that." He
also stated that he bad two other boys, one of
whom was twelie years old and Pio other two.
On entering the &Mon House he went to his
ebild,Who brightened up and cried "Oh! daddy,
daddy, come and hiss me, end bring me home to
mammy, till I kiss her before I die." The
scene was truly heart rending, but the worst
bed to come. "Jimmy, my &Ain'," said the
poor' man, "did you see Billy ?" (a trother,
aged twelve.) -
"Yes, daddy," replied the child, "he WM
shot in the nese."
"And wbere is he ?"
"r don't know, dldy."
Here the man loilking at the countenances
around him, perceived that there was not a dry
eye in the place, and that all viewed him with
compassion. turned as pale as death and cried
"Merciful God, have they shot both. my, chil

down and see .whether it might riot be his.—
He went, and in less than two minutes a shriek
so unearthly came from below as to startle
every one ; the poor fellow was Boon seen to
come up stairs like a maniac. In the pale,
bleeding corpse below, he reoogoised his eldest
boy, whom but a moment before he was speak

side by side, the wounded and the dead, the
two little brothers were carried on a door home
