Tbe Conscanuccti ofSmckin?. 1 he. wide spread habit of smoking has not had due medical attention paid to it and its conscquencea. It is only by two or three year's observation that Dr. Layccck has become fully aware of the changes induced iir the system bylhe abuse of tobacco, and to the varied and obscure forms of disease to which especially excessive smoking gave origin. He proceeds to slate some of them as they were met with in the pharyngical mucous membrane, the stomach, the heart, the lungs, the brniu, and the nervous system. The tobacco consumed by habitual smokers varied from half an ounce to twelve ounces: per week, the u»uol quantity from two to three ounces.

3fctb0 of the jtUcck From the ButEilo Commercial Extra of Saturday. The Gale on the £akes. The steamship Indian Queen, Capt. Staring went ashore last night about 10 o'clock, just above the lower point in Dunkirk Harbor. She was fully laden with goods for that port—several hundred dollars' worth of which were thrown overboard alter she struch, to enable hef to near the shore. She now lies hard upon ia rock bottom, with a deal of wate r in beif and the rest of the cargo must be more or-less damaged. I understand she was insulted for $4,000 the policy for which expires in two or three days. The cause of this disfister is attributedto the culpable njeglect ofthe light-house keeper, in not lighting tip the beacon light, which prevented thej boat making port, and in turning about shej unshipped her rudder, lost both anchors, arid finally i drifted ashore stern foremost. S| he is probably a total wreck. We hear of other disasters!in the vicinity of Barcelona.' [ Two Steamboats Lost...

Generals Vnipudiu and Taylor. lhe interview between Generals Taylor and Ampudia, iji relation to the capitulation of Monterey, has been described to us by a gentleman who was present as a very rich scene, in which the two chiefs were in fine contrast. Ampudia was'all courtesy and fine words-, big speeches, great volubility, with an abundance of gesticulations, shrugs, nods, alternate smiles and frowns, and that whole catalogue of silent language with which persons of French origin are wont to help the expression of theirr ideas. Gen. Ampudia is of a French family, and was born in the West Indies. General Taylor, on the other hand, was as dry as a chip, as plain as a pipe-stem, and as short as pic-crust Dressed in his best coat, (which, by the by, looks as if it had served through; some half a dozen campaigns,) with his glazed oil-cloth cap, strapless pants, and old-fashioned white vest, he seemed more like an old farmer, lately electmilitia colonel, who had put on his everyd...

Rejection Of our Prnssian Consul. A letter writer from Washington says:— " It is true, that the Ring of Prussia has refused to receive Mr. Graebc, a citizen of the United States, as Consul ofthe United States for the Rhenish provinces; but it is eqnally true that our government will not put up Willi tliis unceremonious treatment on the part of his majesty, the Ring of Prussia.— This is tlie second Consul of the United States to whom this besotted sovereign has refused the exequatur; but he has never before come out with the strange plea tha.t he cannot accept a Consul who is not a subject of Prussia; that is, a slace to the dull, bigoted, school-master King of the Desert of BraudeiibuTgli. Consuls enjoy personal immunities in foreign countries; they are not liable to be arrested for political crimes, and their official papers and correspondence are in no circumstances liable to be searched. There's the rub. If a Consul is a native citizen or subject oftlie country to which h...
