The Cause of Bilious CoP
laints aul a Miosde of Care.
V el1 regulated and i roportionate qrtthi
A ty of bile upon the sto-aac h, is always re
quisite for the pronotion of sound health-it
stimaulates digestion, and keeps the intestinal
canal free tro:1 all o- trie tions. Un the inferi
or surace of the liver is it peculiar bladder. in
which the bile is first preserved, being formned
by the liver from the b~o-d. Thence it passes
into the stomach and intestines. and regulates
the indigestion. Thus we see when thei e is a
deficieney of bile, the body is constaitlycostive.
On the o;her hand, an overabundance of bile
causes frequent nausea in the stomnachi; and of
ten promotes very se% ere attacks of disease,
which 'ometimes end in death.
Fevers are always preceded by syinpitons
of a disordered stomach; as are also scrofulous
disorders, and all sympathetic functional. or
ganic orfebrile diseases. Fromt the samce cause,
the natural and healthy action of the hceav, and
the whole vascular system is imipaired anidfedu

palpitations. languid pulse. torpor of the limbs,

The beautiful effusion which the reader
will find below, is the production of the
chaste and classic mind of the late venera
ble and eistinguished Senator from Rhode

by the following circurmstauces; During

tertnined a large party of friendsat diter;
among them the venerable Senator we
have named. The evening passed off wth
much hilarity, enlivened with. wit and
sentiment; bit during the greater part of
the lime, Mr. Itobbint maitained that
grave hut placiul silence which was his
habil. While thus apparently abstracted,
some one suddenly calleit on him for a
toast, which call was seconded by the
comipany. lie role, and in his surprtse
asked ifihey were serious in makingsuch
a dem-ta'd of so old a man ; and being as
sured that they I erg, he said if they would
suspend th,-ir hilarity for a f-w inoments,
heI would give them a toast and preface it
with a rew observations. Hving tius
