A Physiological Curiosity.
St. Martin, the man who has an opening
into his stomach, produced by a gun shot
wound, is in New York, and a number of
the physioians of that city have been ex.
perimenting with the view to ascertain the
time required to digest food. A thermo
meter introduced into his stomach, through
the opening, rose to one hundred and one
Fahrenheit. The carrot, Dr. Bunting
says, in consumed in five to six hours.--
Bare roast beef will thoroughly digest in
an hour and a half. Melted butter will
not digest at all, but float about in the sto
mach. Lobster is comparatively easy of
digestion. Upon the application of the
gastric juice to a piece of purple tissue pa
per, the color at one° faded. In relation
to the patient a health, Dr. Bunting obser
ved that it had been uniformly excellent
having, since his recovery from the effects
of the wound, supported a large family by
Iris daily labor. These experiments do
not differ materially from those made by
Dr. Beaumont twenty years ago. Mr St.
Martin is at present a little upwards of fif
ty years of age, a spare frame, but appa
rently capable of considerable endurance.
He is in excellent bodily health, and it has
not prevented him trom pursuing active
and severe labors. If he does -not keep a
compress to the aperture in.drinking wa
ter, or swallowing anything else, the whole
contents of his stomach trill pass out thro'
that opening. Through this opening
comes out a small part of the stomach, i.
e , the inner coat, which shows its different
appearances--thick or swollen when under
the work of digestion, and thinner when
the digestion is over. St. Martin is on his
way to Europe.
Kind Wordy.
They never blister the tongue or lips.-•-
And we never heard one of mental troub
le arising from this quarter. Though they
do not cost much, yet they accomplish
much. They help one's good.nature and
good will. Soft words soften our own
soul. Angry words are fuel to the flame
of wrath, and make the blaze more fierce.
Kind words made other people good
natured. Cold words freeze people, and
hot words scorch them, and bitter words
make them wrathful. There is such a
rush of Hi other kinds of words in our
dayr, that it seems desirable to find kind
words a chance among them. There are
vain words, and idle words, and hasty
words, and spiteful words, and silly wordy,
and empty words, and profane words, boi-
sterous words, and warlike words. Kind
words also produce their own image on
men's souls. They smooth and quiet, and
comfort the hearer. They shame him out
of his sour, morose, unkind feelings. We
have not yet begun to use kind words in
such abundance as they ought to be used.
ther Taylor of Boston said in a public ad
dress:--t have this' day seen Mr. Amos
Lawrence's pocket book. It is such a
pocket book as Was never made before. Oa
one side of it is printed, in gilt letters,—
What shall it profit a man if he gain the
whole world and lose his own soul You
open another fold and read, "l'he gold is
mine, milli the Lord of Hosts." On still
another fold is printed, •'lle that giveth
to the poor lentleth to the Lord." 1 asked
Mr. Lawrence what all this cts for. He
told me that he remembered that as men
grew old they sometimes grew selfish, and
every time he looked at his money he wan
ted to be reminded of the Gospel, by which
he ought to use his worldly goods, and
therefore he kept money in each of these
folds of his pocket-boon for all good uses
which Divine Providence might suggest.
Do ntt look upon holiness, (writes a mo
ther to her child ) in the light of conformi
ty to a law, a mere submission to certain
restrictive precepts. Luok ujon holiness
as happiness—the only true happiness
To speak of it as the duty of a Christian,
is a low and inadequate view ; it is the pri
vilege of the Christian. The power to be
holy is one of the greatest blessings that
Christ has purchased for us, and bestows
on us through the gift of the Holy spirit.
Dear reader, examine yourself by the
test. Is holiness regarded by you as a
happiness or a hardship ? If you do not
enjoy holiness and follow after it, you could
not enjoy Heaven, for it is a state of su
preme happiness, because it is a state of
perfect holiness.
EAT Iv.—An Englishman of recent im
portation dropped into a restaurant in this
city, a few days since, and made a hearty
meal, topping ofl with a piece of pie.—
The latter, upon-taming, he found it to be
cold,and, calling the 'tlitttle black boy,"
who stood near, he said to him , Talcu

sternation was great when Sainbo walked

"Look here si oony, I dont know what

A Certain I,isease
When the misguided and imprudent votary
of pleasure finds he hiss imbibed the seeds of this
painful disease. it to too often happens that an
ill-timed sense of shame, or dread ut d iscovery,
deters him from applying to those who from ed
ucation and respectability, can alone befriend
bins, delaying till the constitutional symptoms
of this horrid disease make their appearance,
such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose,
nocturnal pains in the bead and limbs, dimness
of sight, deafness, nudes on the shin bone,, and
arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities,
progressing with frightful rapidity, till at last
the palate of the mouth or the hones or she ease
fall in, and the victim of this awful disease be
comes a horrid object of commiseration, till
death puts it period to his dreadful sufferings, by
sending him to uthut ',mune Irons whence no
traveller returns," To such. therefore, Dr.
Johnston pledges himself to }reserve the most
inviolable secrecy, and from his extensive prac
tice in the first Hospitals of Europe and Ameri
ca, ho can confidently recommend 0 safe and
speedy cure to the utilbrtunate victim of this hot
rid disease.
It is a melancholy fact that thousands fill vic
tims to this horrid disease owing to the unskil
fulness of ignorant pretenders who by the use of
that deadly poison Mercury, ruin the cons.i
tution. and either send the unfortunate sittlerer
to an untimely grave, or make the residue of his
