say nothing of the unpleasantness of mus

while tbey are so very care Til of the food

seem totally careless of the kind of proven

It is not our design to determine th om
parative importance of fxd and air. Both
are necessary, and it ia important to health
that both should be of the right kind.
Man is a breathing animal. Tha lungs
heave on, by day and by niht, when we
sleep as well as when we wake. They
perform their work whether we will it or
not. It is ascertained thai every minute
of bis life, a man of ordinary size draws
into his lung 104 square inches of air,
aud sends it out again, unfit for further
use. If he would he welt, he must have
fre.h air at each breath he draws. The
air he send out, is loaded with the seeds of
disease and death. Ol course we only state
facts, without entering into a discussion of
tha why and the wherefore. That the air
wt send nut ia of auch a character, is a
well established fact; yet men.aye and wo
men too, Who ought to take car? lh.l they
inhale nothing but what ia purity itself,
will consent to shut themselves up in close
rooms an J breathe over and again the aame
foul air. as foul and as unfit for use as the
biead that has moulded, or the water in
w hich the pig has wallowed.
Tha sight of any company in a close
room, especially if the placo be crowded,
the ceiling low, and a hot fire burning in
the stove.i perfectly horrifying to one who
looks at it aoherly. Yet people swelter iu
such confined apartments, for hours it may
be, breathing every moment the air which
their neighbor has thiuwn out from his
lungs the moment before, and never dream
? - j m,x. aeinng me nwrm tnetr pny-
sical constitution at nought. They would
not break the moral law by withholding
from a neighbor his due that would be a
in : but they consider it no sin lo with
hold from their lungs the air which God
has made their due. They feel no com
punction of conscience when they do vio
lence to the laws that their Creator has
written on the frame-work of their bodies.
They need to be told that they do wicl'eUiy
when they refuse to the lungs thr pUre H;r

Boat Building Frlck fc Sllfer.
The botts built by these gentlemen, and
sent lo New York, have been so much ad
mired that ihey have entered upon another
large contract, and are going forward with
increased n eans and strength. It will be
seen thai they have called for 300 work
men ; and they also advertise for 1,200,
1)00 leet of boat lumber, ("for particulars,
see small bills.'; We understand they con
template having another Boat-yard, at the
mouth of BuQdloe creek. We hope the
energy and enterpriae of these young me
chanics may permanently benefit not only
themselves, but also the Borough.
