• • Bleeding improper—an Admission. The New York Journal of Medicine, Ihe organ of the regular Faculty, thus argumentatively and summarily disposes of the practice of taking blood as a remedy in disease: "An acute observer of disease and remedy would perceive lhat an inflammation consisted in some disturbance of the circulation, and health consisted in ihe restoration Df the circulation to its original condition ; the sccretof remedy would he found in the cause of ihe circulation. The blood is not ihe cause of its circulation; for the self-same quantity of blood may be in the vessels when it does nol circulate at all as when it does most healthily.as daily instanced in concussions, epilepsy, &c. The taking away blood does nothing directly but aher the quantity. ' Intlircctly by Hiking array the fluid which contains the life, we diminish the life itself, and the means of obtaining life—ihe respiration. Bleeding, therefore, diminishes the quantity of life.— Can a man hav...

Correct Speaking. We advise all young people to acquire in early life the habit of using good language, both in speaking and writing, and to abandon as early as possible (be use of slang words and phrases. The longer they live the more difficult the acquisition of such language will be ; and if the golden age of youth — the proper season for tho acquisition of language — be passed in its abuse, the unfortunate victim of neglected education is very probably doomed to talk slang for life. Money is not necessary lo procure this education. Every man has it in his power; He has merely to use the language which he reads insteail of the slang which ho hears; to form his tasle from the best speakers, writers and poets of Ihe country; to treasure upchoice phrases in his memory, and habituate himself to their use — avoiding at (he same lime that pedantic precision and bombast which bespeak rather ihe weakness of a vain ambition than Ihe polish of an educated mind. There is no man, howev...

^ Good Advice. jonn n. t'lentice, in ins recent valedictory on retiring from the editorial choir, which he had filled for 42 years, has the following: "No man should be without a well conduct* ed newspaper; he is far behind the spirit of the age, unless he reads one , is not upon equal fooling with his fellow man who enjoys such advantage, andisdisregardful of his duty lo his family, in not affording them an opportunity of acquiring a knowledge of what is passing in the world, at the cheapest possible teaching. Show me a family without a newspaper, and I venture to say thai there will be manifest in that family a want of amenity of manners and indications of ignorance, most strikingly in contrast wilh the neighbor who allows himself such a rational indulgence. Young men especially should read newspapers. If 1 were a boy, even of J 2 years, 1 would read a newspaper weekly, though 1 had to work by torchlight to earn money enough lo yay for it. The boy who reads well, will learns...

Three Catamounts killed. We learn from the Mauch Chunk Gazette , that three catamounts were killed last week in Kast Penn township, Carbon county, by Mr. Charles Itehrig. It appears Ihnl Air. llebrig was out one day not far from his bouse, wilh his dog and gun. and hearing his dog bark at several different places, at last found that he had pursued his antagonist into a Iree, where it was shot by Mr. Itehrig. One of his neighbors hearing that he had killed a wild-cat, called on him and at once pronounced it a catamount. He observed that the animal's nose and legs were scratched and bitten ; *he told Mr. llelirig it was done by one of his own species: and advised him lo go in pursuit of it , which ho did on ihe day following, and returned with two others. It is rather singular ihnl they have not been discovered before , as it is thought they have lived in thai vicinity for years. Mr. R. informed us that he had seen two others since.

Advice of Council. There is a well known custom prevailing in our criminal courts, of assigning counsel to such prisoners as have no one to defend them. On one occasion, (he court finding a man accused of theft, and without counsel, said to a lawyer who was present: "Mr. B., please to withdraw with the prisoner confer, with him, and (hen give him such counsel as may be best for his interest." The lawyer and his client then withdrew, and in fifteen or twenty minutes the lawyer returned into Court. "Where is (he prisoner 1" asked the Court. "He is gone, your honor," said the hopeful legal limb. "Your honor told me lo give him the best advice for his interest, and, as he said he was guilty, I thought the best counsel I could offer him was to 'cut and run,' which he took at once."

New Application of Cloroform. Mr. C. Spencer Bale, a dentist , wri'.ing in the London Lancet, recommends a new way pf employing chloroform to abate ihe horrors of tooth-pulling, which if his account be wellfounded, as we suppose it must be, will supersede the ordinary method of using it by narcotizing (he patient. Instead of being inhaled, the chloroform is to bo applied directly to Ihe nerve of ihe tooth, when necessary. Il is app lied on lint or cotton. It " 'causes the most violent pain lo subside," says Mr. Ba:o, "soon after which the tooth may bo removed with comparatively no pain." Here the plan is lo slupify the nerve of the toolh, instead of the ordinary method of administration, may render the use of cloroform by dentists much more common that it now is.

The Mississippi.— The Mississippi river runs through nineteen degrees of latitude, a space extending from ihe northern part of Ireland to Ihe Rook of Gibraltar. At its source the winters have the rigor of lliose of Norway, and al its mouih the seasons are those of Spain. The fir and the birch grow about its northern springs'— and the palm, the live-oak, and orange al ihe Balize. It is closed by ice in November in its northern course, which is melted early in ihe spring, before it has floated within many hundred miles of its mouth. "Long, wandering, bui nol lost," it flows for the first four hundred miles through a high, prairie-likc country, until it is precipitated over ihe falls; then, having descended from ihe high shelf of land it'has lately watered, it flows for the next seven hundred through one of-the most beautiful regions.

Adcicc m Poultry Keeping.—The principles upon which we rely for success in keeping hens, are, 1st, lo have two breeds—a few to hatch and rear the chickens, and twice the number of everlasting.layers, as eggs are more profitable than chickens ; 2d. to get a hatch as early as possible in spring, and to keep them well: those never cast their feathers like Ihe old birds, and it they begin to lay in autumn, lay more or less all winter; 3d, never to keep old fowls (none but favorite fowls ought to bo kept more than two years:) old birds lay larger eggs than pullets, but not near so many; 4th , to give them the best barley to be got, and as much as they could pick Up once a day in summer, and twice in winter; they are not only mora profitable, well kept, but the eggs are belter.—Enelh. paper

'Meanness-It has been universally conceded that Mr. Speaker Winthrop has, during the past session, discharged the onerous duty of his station wilh singular ability and justice. At the close of the session the House of Representatives very appropriately passed a resolution, expressing warm thanks for his exercise of ability and impartiality. A member from Virginia moved to strike out ihe wGrd "impartiality," and among those who voted for it was Mr. Palfrey, of Massachusetts. When the scene between Mr. Winihrop and Mr. Palfrey, al iheopening of the session, is remembered, the meanness and malice of this vote will be evident.
