Tobacco Its Elects on the Human
. . Constitution, Physical, Intellectual
anilCoraL . ' ""' ' ; '"
BY JAMES COCLTEtt LAVARD, M. .
. . CosriNUED.
EXTEXT OF ITS USE.
Various i-etioiates hsve been made
as to what proportion of the inhabi
tants of our globe, relatively, use to
bacco, opium, haschih, and other
things of that nature ; but as these
differ widely in their results, we give
none ot their figures. It is all specu
lation at best mere gue.s woik. But
however much authorities may differ
in this mntter, upon one point they all
agree, and that is, that of all the vari-,
ous substances resorted to by man
kind fur the purpose of procuring sen
sual gratification, tobacco is by far the
most extensively employed to an ex
tent greater, in fact, than that of all
the rest combined. Turkey and China
have their opium, IndU aud Persia
have their haschuh, the Ka'tern Arch
ipelago has its betel nut, Siberia its
'fungus, New Grenada its thorn apple,
Bolivia aud Peru have their cocoa,
and the idl.inds of the Pacific their
hava ; but all the world has tobacco.
These facts, taken in connection
with another fact,namcy, the almost
universal prevalence in individuals of
all nations, both civilized and savage,
of a craving f intoxicating beverages
of some kind, have led eoine to argue
the existence of au instinct, a natural
appetite for these things, which makes
their use, therefore, a necessity, and
their moderate employment an advan
tage. We cau only see iu them how
ever, an additional evidence of the
depravity of human nature, and of
man's eutrangement from his God.
Man was created pure and holy, but
he has sought out many inventions,
the only tendency of which has been
to degrade him from his high estate ;
and of these, the use of ruai and to
bacco are prominent examples.
.The amount of tobacco consnmed
througljftut the world is astonishingly
large, and what is more, it is increas
ing, and in a ratio far exceeding the
increase in population. As to the
amount consumed in onr own country
we cannot give it precisely in pounds
as to do so would involve on elabor
ate calculation from certain statistic
of the tobacco trade, which we have
up to this time failed to obtain ; but
we can sny that the lowest estimate
we have yet seen of its value is $50,
000,000. The quantity consumed in
rc.it B:itaiti is 24,000,000 pounds,
producing a revenue of over -.1,000,-000.
In France it is 41.000,000 ; in
Anstria, 81,000,000 pounds, etc. It
is a piincipnl source of revenue to
every continental state. In 1SG5 Aus
tiia smoked 1,000,000.000 of cigars,
nearly. Russia - raises 25,000 000
pounds of tobucco f r homo consump
tion. We may give our readers some
slight idea of the qu mtity of tobacco
usad is this country by stating that a
single firm iu the city of Xew York
paid to the government for tho month
of September (1S67) a revenue rax of
.123 000. Its average monthly tax
for internal revenue is over S100.000
The shipment f ennff by this house
to one town in North Carolina anwuut
to 100 barrels a month, or 1,200 bar
rels annu tlly. And this is but a tithe
of the tnuff merely sold by one firm
The wonder is, what becomes of it
In the Noitb the snuffing is said to
Le done mostly by foreigners and old
women. In the South it is need for
the purpose of dipping. As this is a
practice which is confined, for the
most part, to the Southern section of
the Union, and is, therefore, compar
tivcly unknown to Norihem readers
we dare say wholly so to many of
them it is proper that we should in
this place give a more extended no
tice of it, as it exists in the late slave
States. Of all the methods of using
tobacco, this is at once the most filthy
and disgusting. Confined to the fe
male sex, "God's best gilt to man,"
this fact seems, to a sensitive and re
fined mind, to give it added loath
someness. The tlijipor seats herself with her
box, or bottle of the precious stuff,
and her swab-stick usually a green
twig, three or four inches iu length,
well chewed at one end, in order that
the snuff may the more readily adhere
this, ever aud anon, she dips into
her box, and thus conveys to her
mouth the filthy dust, rubbing well
her gums and the inside of her cheeks
at tho same time. If in company with
a friend, she then passes to her the
bottle and mop that she may do like
wise. This is considertd a delicate act
of courtesy ; the eama as when one
old toper asks another to take a drink
out of his whisky bottle.
Sometimes the ladies of a neighboi-.
hood meet together and hold circles for
the purpose of enjoying in company a
social dip, and discussing the affairs of
their neighbors at the same time, the
same as at an old fashioned tea party.
Married ladie3 and bright young girls,
each lovely belle with her snuff box
and swab-stick sometimes all use a
common snuff-box dipping snuff and
retailing tit-bits of scandal.
We have said that snuff dipping was
mostly confined to the women ot the
South. Yet it is not wholly so. Al
though one of the peculiar institutions
of that section of onr country, and
having its origin there, the practice
has spread outside its original domain,
and within the last fifteen or twenty
years has come to be somewhat com
mon in some parte of thej North, espe
cially in the city of New York, and
adjacent portions of New Jersey,
where it is indulged in, I not by the
poor aud ignorant alone; but, as we

are informed in New .York at least
by genteel and high bred ladis in the
fashiouabla walks of life. In New
York it is known by the euphonious
appellation of muff disrging. In New
Jersey it is known as maSrvh'tiay
In the latter region the practice, a it
exists, is in all esfenti.J particulars tho
same as at the Soi;;Lt. But iu the city
of New York, instead of meeting with
others to iudulge in the disgusting
practice, the siiuiT-taker retires to' the
privacy of her own chamber to ri'joy
tho ee::snal delight in secret. Tho
fikbv powder is deposited on the in
'side of. the lower lip by mcau cf a
peculiarly shaped horn or silver rpoon
The article of snuff used is one manu
factured espresely fjr diggers' use ;
anil is a mixture of high lo.tst Scotch
and other snuffs, to -hich is added a
certain proportion of salt, pt-arlash mid
oilier pungent ingredients, wiih a vi,-w
t enhancing iis stimulating qu.dii.ies.'
Its exact composition is a ecn t. and
known only to the trade. As to tho
quantity sold in New Yoik for this es
pecial purpose we cannot very well
tell the aggregate amount ; but one
shop in the Bowery sells 100 pounds
a week and another on Broadway sells
three timfs as much. Each digger
consumes from a quarter of a pound
to a pound prr week.

A Strange Lov3 Stay.
The Dulu th. Minnesota, He.-ahl, of
the 23th ult., gives a romantic account
of the finding in the pine forests on Cloy
net river, two weeks ago, of a young
man, formerly a clerk iu a Broadway
jewelry store It appears that a party
of explorers, while at 6 up per, heard a
melodious v;ca singing; "No one to love,
none to care.-s.' " . "
For a few moments they were at a
loss to discover from whence tho melody
came, bnt on peering through a thicket,
which lay to the north of them;' they
discovered a young man, apparently
about five and twenty years old, ap
proaching. The tail slender and rather
good looking fellow wore a Mackinac
coat, fur cap and German socks and
moccasins. On coming up to them he
paseeS the compliments of the evening
and was about to pass when the explorer
asked him if he wouldn't stop and take
a cup of coffee. At first lie declined the
civilty, but the request being urged he
finally consented to accept.
This singular recluse, on being press
ed for his strange mode of life, stated.
I belong to New York city, and ray
parents now reside on Third avenue.
Abont two years ago I made the ac
quaintance of a Miss Henderson, an ac
tress who played uuder au assumed
name. She was about as sweet a -girl,
so far as looks went, as ever the sun
shone upon. It is needless to tell you
that aftr a year's courtship, she consen
ted to be my wife. All the preparations
for our marriage were mide, but just or.e
week prior to the day on which we
were to be united, a lady friend inform
ed my niether that I was about to be
most terribly disappointed. Being asked
in what way, this lady handed a note
from Miss Ucndersou to my mother, in
which she admitted falling fiom virtue
some thn'.e years before, and begging my
mother to disclose it to me through my
father. The letter further stated that
she, my betrothed, could never again see
me. This dreadful news, of course came
to my ears in a very short time after it
had been imparted to my mother. I
knew not what t do, and finally wan
dered out here in the hope that I might
in solituda forget my heartsick troubles
But I have. not. I have lived in this re
gion for nearly four months, almost
wholly sustaining myself by my gnu and
lie then wei.t on to say that his tent
was about three miles- from the ppot
where he was being regaled ; that he
did not know how long he should re
main ; but that, after having Lis hoptB
iu life blasted, he intended to live away
from the snares of both man aud woman
kind. As far as could be gleaned from
some desultory remark made by him be
fore leaviug the exploring ca'i.p, which
he did just at twilight, this disappointed
lover had been a clerk, in some jewelry
establishment on Broadway, New York
Moral Character There is noth
ing which adds so much to the beauty
and power of m m, as a good moral char
acter. It is his wealth his influence
his life. It dignifies Lim in every eta-,
tion exalts him in every condition, and
glorrfies him at every period of 1'fn.
uch a character is more to be desired
than everything else on earth. It makes
a man free and independent. No servile
tool no cronching sycophant no treach
erous honor-eeeker ever bore such a char
acter. The pure joyB of truth and right
eousness never spring in such a person
Ifyonngmen but know how much a
good character would dignify and "exalt
them how glorious it wonld make their
prospects, even in this life : never should
we find them yielding to the groveling
and base born purposes of human na
ture. A Maine woman ate four quarts of oys
