British army was reopened in the House of
Commons last night, by Mr.Disraeli and Mr.
The Effects op Alcohol on the Human
System. Alcohol forms no part of the living
body, and when taken into the stomach is
rapidly absorbed, or rather permeates the
membranes and the coats of the blood-vessels,
and finds its way into the blood, with which it
forms no homogeneous mixture, but, alien'
like, is hurried along in the circulation, to be
eliminated, in great part, as speedily as pos
Bible, that which, is retained producing very
equivocal effests, and in many instances
painful and fatal diseases. It escapes by the
way of the lungs, as shown in the breath of
those who have been drinking ardent spirits
or stroDg wines, and also by the akin and
kidneys. That portion of the alcohol which
is retained in the body accumulates most
readily in the brain and liver, and it has been
found in its pure state after death in these
organs, especially in the brain. The first
manifest effects of an alcoholio liquor are on
the brain and nervous system generally, on
which it acts, in a small dose, as an exoitant,
and in ft larger one as a narcotic Other
arts are affected in a corresponding manner,
eis a at first stimulated, not strengthened,
and afterwards retarded and weakened in
For example, the heart, that wonderful
and, dnring life, cever-oeaaing pump, when
its inner surface is reached by the tide of
blood containing alcohol, works away so much
the faster to get rid of the intruder; in so
doing its machinery is needlessly strained.
and if this be continued from day to day is
more apt to be deranged and sooner worn out.
Under the operation of the prolonged use of
alcoholio liquors the heart often beoomes
bypertrophied or morbidly thickened, and at
other times auatea and thinner in its sub
stance; or a still worse condition supervenes
its maficnlar texture is converted into fatty
matter, and it fails to coatract with the re
quisite force and regularity, and is liable at
any moment to cease beating. In thin sud
den cessation of tbe heart section is found
an explanation of some of the sudden deaths
of which we read. These destructive effects
of tbe use of alcoholio liquors are not by any
means confined to drunkards; they are seen
in persons who had never been intoxicated
during their lives, but who bad been regular
drinkers of these liquors. The liver is din-
eased in a similar manner from the like
cause. From What Shall We Drink f" in

the wife on me, and me innocent as the child

" Faix, I m tonld it s potheen, says he, 'but

Mick. I thought you'd like to see a horn

" 'It's a grate horn entirely, and you may
lave it, Dan,' said I, jestingly, 'for I have a
reverence for old things. You are sworn
against the contents; I am not.'
" 'I d be proud to lave it wid yer riverence,
an' tin times the like of it, but I daren't,' said
Dan, 'for it's not all out mine.'
"Well, I returned the horn, and without
draming the laste harm, I said, 'It's a curi
osity, Dan, and may the drink in it dr you
good ! Mind ye don't make a beast of your
self. Drink )s for man s health and comfort,
and not to destroy him body and soul and
make a fool and rogue of him to boot, which
is worse in the world's eye than infidelity.
It is necessary to keep on a level with heaven
and earth both, Dan. Take pattern by me.'
" I would wid all my bones, returned
Dan, 'but I'd like to taste the dhrink would

ten years older than Dan was here next

my premises like an unclean spirit, waiting
till she could pounce on me out of reaoh and

of the hag's intentions, so I fell viotim to her

should say so I for in my heart I wish ill to
