How we Perspire. ,
All over the surface of our hodiei
there are scattered millions of minute
orifices which open into tho delicate
convoluted tubes lying underneath the
skin, and are culled hy anatomists
sudoriparons glands. Each of those
tubes, when straightened, measures
about a quarter of an inch ; and as ac
cording to Erasmus Wilson, whose
figures wo follow, there are 3528 of these
tubes on every square inch of the palnt
of the hand, there must be no less than
NB2 inches of tubing on such a square
inch. In some parts of the body the
number of tubes is even greater; in
most parts it. is less. Erasmus Wilson
estimates that there are 2800 on every
square inch, on the average; and as
the total number of such inches is 2500,
we arrive at the astounding result that,
spread over the purface of the body,
there are not less than teremtpeight miles
of tubing, by means of which liquids may
be secreted, and given of? as-Napor in
insensible perspiration, or as water in
sensible perspiration. In the ordinary
circumstances of daily life, the, amount
of fluid wbjch is thee given off from the
skin (and lungs)during the twenty four
hours, varies from 13 lb. to 5 lb ; under
extraordinary circumstances the a
mount will of course rise enormously.
Dr. Southwood Smith funnd tlutt, the
workmen in the gas-works employed in
making up the tires, and ether occupa
tions which subjected them to great
heat, lost on an average 3 lb. 6 oz. in
forty-tice minutes; and when %corking
for seventy Minutes in an unusually
hot place, their loss was 4 lb. 2 oz., and
4 lb. 14 oz.—Btaelooood.

Virginia lad Buena an.,
The Democrats of nearly every coun
ty in Virginia have held meetings, du
ring the last-few weeks, for the appoint
ment of delegates-to represent them in
State convention, which was held in 1
Petersburg, on the second day of this
month, for the 'purpose of nominating
candidates for the dhief executive of the
State, to bo voted for on the fourth
Thursday in May next.
Although the prat ice is not usual, wo
observe that a great many of the coun
ties have volunteered' the most cordial
expressions of approval of the policy
and measures of the administration of
Mr. Buchanan. The high terms in which
this approval has been expreseed,and the
fact that the mead of " well done,
and faithful servant" comes. thus feT i n
the people—the clads whom Mr. Ritchie
used to allude to with so much pride as
the yeomanry—that the people have
awarded this - judgment, of their own
motion - in-prithary meetings—that it is
not the obsequious adnlation of po
liticians, removed from the yeomanry,
and holding accidental positions of pro
minence or notrioty, as look-outs for
something better—but the unsolicited
and spontaneous voice of the honest
and unselfish masses. These eireum
stancee render these expressions of
sentiment in Virginia peculiarly en
couraging and gratifying to the firm,
honest,andable statesman who presides
at the head of affairs.—Washington
Who :takes Free ~ States.—During the
last session of Congress, Minnesota, a
free State, was admitted into the - Union
upon the recommendation of President
Buchanan. On looking over the vote
upon the admission, it will be seen that
every Democrat alike from the South
and :North, was in his seat, and voted
"aye," while a majority of the Republi
cans voted "no." The Senate, which
is largely Donsonzatic, passed a bill to
admit Oregon, another free State, in

Much is possibly duo to misapprehen

by which those pm-poses are to be car

import 'that none but
" Young Men " should be fbiind pn the

have developed the most encouruging

Last winter a series of Public Lee

of the Association, alternately hi the
Lutheran, Methodist, German- Reform
ed, and Presbyterian Churches, by the
following gentlemen :
Rev. C. P. Krauth, D. D., Roy. J. R.
Werner, Rev. H. L. Rougher,. D. D.,
Prof. M. L. Stcever, Rev. J. Ziegler,
Rev. X. Jacobs, Dr. Charles Homer,

and Lecture s were -well attended,
and were-furnished without expense to
the Association. - At the -close of. the
series, Rev. Mr. Werner delivered an
Address to Young Men, in St. James'
Church, on Sabbath evening, the other
churches being dosed on the occasion.
It is expected that arrangemelits will
be made for a course of Lectures ;this
Winter, and as the season is already
well'advanced, it will be necessary to
act promptly in the matter:
A Bible Class for Young Men :was
formed soon after the organization of
the Association, under charge of Prof.

encouraging, and there is reason to
believe that good was accomplished.

The Association now lies a room eon
veniently located and furnishearor the
piirposos of s Reading Room. The de
sign was to have this Room opened at
least once a week to give the. member
ship an opportunity of spendin4 the
evening in social greeting and profits,
hie reading. Various canoes have com
bined to prevent tho regular opening of
the room during the slimmer months.
To accomplish the purposeii of the As
sociation 'otitis respect, it is IMPOrtlint
that the room be made sufficiently at
tractive to induce the membership regu
larly to attond these weekly unions.—
We have the nucleus of an excellent Li
brary, but it-ought to be largely inereas
ed,and the room should be supplied with
unobjectionable Newspapers and Per:-
