Like those, trim 6114-unknown of yore,

To make believe that then art gone?
I see those locks in silyery slips,
This drooping gait, this alteed size.;

And stars take sunshine from thine eyes

A look that's fastened to the ground;

A better story than the following which
comes from North Carolina. we have not..
!fOund in the drawer for ninny months:
About thirty miler above Wilmington,
N. C., lived three fellows, named respec
tively Barham. Steno arid Grey, on the
bauks of the North East Ritter. They
came down the river in a small row boat,
and made fait-to the wharf. They bad a
Mime of it id the city, but for fear they
would get dry before getting home they
procured a jug of whisky, and after dark,
of a black night too, they embarked in a
boat expecting to roach home in the morn
ing. They rowed away with all theener
gy that three half tipsy fellows could mus
ter, keepiug up their spirits in the dark
ness by pouring spirits down. At break
of day they thought that they must be
near home, and ,seoing through the dim
grey of the morning house on the river
,lido, Stone said :
"Well, Barham, we've got to your•plaoo
"If this is my house," said Barham,
"somebody,has boon putting up a lot of
outhouses since I wont away yesterday ';
but I'll go ashore and look about, and see
wheie we are, if you'll hotive to,"
Barham disembarks, takes observations, ,
and soon comes stumbliug along book, and
" Well, I'll be whipped if we ain't. at
Wilmiogton bare yet—:and whit's more;
tho boat has been hitched to tho wharf all
night It! , •
It was afact, and the drunken , dogs had
been rowing away for dear life, without
knowing it.=Haipers'

Checked Persplratloh !
Is the - friiitful clause of Sickness, disc
ease and deathoto m j nititudes every year.—
If a tea-kettle of later is boilipg on the
fire, the steam is seen issuing from the
spout. carrying the extra, heat, away with
it, butlf the li J be. fastened down, and the

lie# is constantly generated within the
human body, by , the chemical disorganiza
tion, the combustion of the food we eat.
Thera are seven millions of tubes or pores
on the surface of the body, which in health
are constantly open, conveying . from the,
system by what' is called insensible prespi
ration this , internal, heat which, having an•
aware(' its purpose, ia passed off like the
jets of steam which are thrown, from the
escape-pipe, in puffs, of any ordinary steam
engine'; but this insensible prespiration
carries with it, in a dissolved form, 'very
much of the waste matter, to the extent
of a pound or two or more every twenty
four hours. It must be apparent, that, if
the pores of the skin are closed, if the mul
titude of valves, which are placed over the
whole surface of the human body are shut
down, two things take place. First, the
internal heat is prevented from passing
off, it accum elates every moment, the per
son expresses himself as burning up, and
large draughts of water are swallowed to
quench the internal fire—this we call "Fe
ver." When the warm steam is constant
ly escaping from the body in health, it
keeps the skin moist, and there is a soft,
pleasant feel and warmth about it. But
when the pores aro closed, the skin feels
hursh, dad hot, and dry.
But another result follows the closing of
the pores of the akin, and more immediate
ly dangerous ; a main outlet for the waste
of the body is closed, it . re-miugles with
the bleed, which, in a few hours be6outes
impure, and begins to generate disease in
every fibre of the system—the whole ma
chinery of the man becomes at once dis
ordered, and he expresses himself as 'feel
ing miserable." The terrible effects of
this checked perspiration of a dog, who
sweats only by his tongue, is evinced by
his becoming "mad." The water runs in
streams from a dog's mouth in summer if
I exercising freely.' If it ceases to run that '
is hydrophobia. It 'has been asserted by
a French Physician,,that if a person , suffer
leg under, Hydiophohia can be only made ,
to perspire freely, hots cured at once.- It
is familiar to the commcineit observer,4at
in all ordinary forms of disease, the patient

nal heat is passing off, and there is an out
let for tho waste of the system. Thus it is
that ono of the tuost important means for
curing all sickness, is bodily cleanliness,
which is simply removing from the; mouths
of these little pores. that gum, a ad dust,
and oil, which clog them up. Thus it is,
also, tha t personal cle.anliness is one of the
main elements of health ; thus it is, that
filth and disease hubitate together the world
There are two kinds of perspiration,
sensible and insensible. When we see
drops of water ' on the surface of the body,
as the result o f exercise, or suin.idence of
fever, that is sensible perspiration, perspi
ration recognised, by the sense of sight.—
But when perspiration is so gentle that it
cinnot be detected in the sham of water
drops, when no moisture can be 'felt, when
it is known to us only by email:Fag/Mess
of the skin, that is insensible perspiration,
and is so gentle, drat it may be checked to
a 7ery considerable extent without special
injury. But to use popular language,
which'cannot be mistaken, when a man is
ssveatiug freely. and is suddenly checked.
and the sweat is not brought out again in
a very few , moments, eudden and painful
sickness is a very certain result.
What then checks perspiration I A draft

or getting the clothing wet and remaining
at rest while, it is so. Getting out of a

window, has been the death of multitudes'

himself to fashion the virgin modeity, in

My Data Sin :—Your favor of thelst
instant, ought to have been answered 1 , 0ng . .,
ago, but ahsence aud , business must plead:
my excuse :
I ate not Surprised to hear that;the
more so widely circulated concerning Cot-
Fromont's religion should have the effeckT
of causing some, who otopathize therotigh'
ly with hie sentiments in regard to the
extension of slavery, to hesitate abUti
pledging themselves to his support. But
so far as those, rumors assert, or imply,
that he is a Roman Catholic, they are
without the slightest foundation in fact.
I presume that, from proper motives of
delicacy and self-respect, Col. Fremont,
will nut publish anything himself on the
su West, or take any part personally in the
cativo& But he converses with the ut
most freedom upon these topics as uponAl
others; he Vas no desire nor disposition to
practice any coqualment of his opinions .
and I have tio rea s on to suppose that he
would desire others to do so on his be.
Col. Fremont is not now, nor ban he
ever been, a Roman Catholic. His fath

was educated - exclusively'in Protestant .
schools, and at the age of sixteen was con.
finned, of his own motion and from sin-
cent conVietion' •
.iu the Protestant Episco
pal Chuch, of which he has continued
ever since to bo a:member. Not one of
his two children has ever been sent to a
limmuu Catholic school, though I believe

time the dowinury at Georgetown,of which
the pupils generally are large' Protestalit.
