Climate for Consumptives.-It is a nat
ier of much interest in this countryi where
consuMption is a prevalent disease, to ds
certain the climate most favorable to persons
afflicted with pulmonary affections.
Some parts of Florida are said to be
unrivalled for the equable temperature of
the atmosphere and for that mild and genial
climate most conducive to the restoration
of health incipiant stages of consumption,
and best adapted to the prolongation of
life where the lungs have received incurable
Dr. Wilson, a highly respectable physi
clan of Jackson. Miss., who is himself con
sumptive. and has visited Cuba, Jamaica,
and other West India Islands. and various
parts of South A merica, gives it as his own
opinion that the Island of Curacoa is the
best place for persons in his condition. It
is in 12 degrees north latitude and 66 de
grees west longitude, lying in the course of
the trade winds, which vary from N. E. to
S. E., from which points the breeze is
always soft and refreshing. He arrived
there on the 1st of February and remained
until the 6th of April, during which time
ite thermometer stood at its lowest point
79 degrees, and at its highest 83, the usual
change in twenty four hours not exceeding
three degrees, a change not felt by the
most delicate constitution, In Cuba, par
ticularly. the Doctor's health rapidly de
clined the climate being exeessively varia
ble; but the mild and uniform temperature
of Curacoa entirely restored him.
Going through the Motions.-There was
a fellow who unfortunately for himself and
family; from being a pretty good husband
took to drinking, and soon became an idle
and trifling vagabond. Coming home one
night after having, as usual been on a de
bauch, he begun to call lusily-"Wife!
wife! I say give me some supper! Iaiy
give me some supper!" The pooor wife
who, while she could do so, provided food
for the family by her own toil, informed
him with tears in her eyes. that there was
nothing to get a supper out of. "What,"
said he, "hav'nt you a piece of cold meat
"No." "Give me a ernst of bread, then
He was told- there was none. "What!
have you nothing-VoTHING ?" "Nothing
at till," replied the poor wife, rnot even a
crumb !" After a pause--Very well,
very well ! Give me a clean plate, knife
and fork. By Jupiter! l'llgo through
the motions any hot if I starve afterwards.

A curious instance of the intelligence of
a dog is relatedl. The animal belonged to
a celebrated chemist, who tried upon it the
ehethc of a certain poison, and upon the
next day admnitstered a counter-poison,
which had the effect of preservi-ng the
poor creature''s life. The next day an
other dose was offered hitm; btut nerei!
said he, he would niot touch it. Different
sorts of poisonous drugs were presented to
himn, but he resolutely refused all. Bread
was offered, but he wotuld not touch it ;
meat, but he turned from it ; water, but he
would not drink. To re-asswre him,. his
master offered him bread and meat of
which he himselfaue in the dog's presence;
and of that the sagacious amimal, hesitated
not to partake. He was taken to a foun
tain, but he would drink nowhere hut from
the spot where the wvater gushed free and

until. the master, touched? by the extraor
dinary intelligence of the poor creature, re
solved to make no more attempts upon

maple tree standing by the house of Mr.

been there but a few mninutes biefore war
wvas declared against him by an old robin,
who seemed to claim the right of~ posses

of maples by the way-side; but fitnding
the bird in hot pursuit, he would turn oe

bird. ~ Hie then ran up and down several
trees, with the enemy at his heels, some
times stopping to strike with his paw, and
