He particu- insists that vocal music should never be tin the education of a young lady; and thiit besides its salatary operations in cares of domestic life, it has a still more direct and important effect. "I here introduce a fact," says Doctor Rush, "which has been subjectedto me by my bro- fession; that is, the exercise of the organs of tlie breast by singing contributes to defend them very much from those diseases to which the cli- mate and other causes expose them.

Hia practice lay considerably in the criminal courts, where, by his ingenuity, he ena- bled the most deserving culprits to evjde the well-earned pnnishment of the law. He was one day gammoned to Newgate in a hurry, and in a ease of great emergency. The safe or strong box of Glendour and Co. had been plundered to an immense amount. Suspicion had fallen on the deputy cashier, who was in consequence arrested and sent to prison, inside of which he was advised by his fellow-prisoner, (whom on his entrance he had conciliated by " coming down" handsomely,) to send for counselor Costello, who would, if any man could, save his life. It was in obedience to the summons that the counselor repaired to Newgate—a practice not very gen- eral in London, perhaps, but not at all unusual in Dublin. " I am tol...
