Statistics of of Insanity
It is of comparatively modern date that the in
sane have been treated upon correct and scientitie
principles, and statistics of insanity, as pre
pared by medical wen, show MM. curious facts
In England where great attention has been giv
en to the subject, it has been ascertained that the
liability to disease is greatest between tw, i l ly
and forty years of age; that the liability
sexes is in the proportion of fifty-four per vela of
males to forty-six of females, that the agricitnr.
al population is...more subject to insanity than
the manufacturer; that nutritious food is more
beneficial to the insane than a low fare; that per
sonal restraint is hardly ever absolutely neeessary;
and various other facts, alcassietiqg more or les4,
to reduce 'the proper treatment of insanity to a
positive sciatic*.
In an interesting article upon this subject the
ledger states that the statistics of our American
asylums agree, with these In one respect, how
ever, the English statistics exhibit a striking dif
ference from our owe; we allude to the vast pro
portion of insane anion the pauper population.
In England and Wales, in 1' 4 27, one pauper out
of every fifty was insane; whereas only one out
of every four thousand of the non-pauper class
was so. In large towns, such as London, insan
ity prevails to a great- r extent than in other
towns, owing, it is supposed, to the greater sere
bral adtivity of the inhabitants. This fact has
its parallel in the United States, where the larg
est proportion of insane is found in New Eng
