Domestic demil I ne*?.
On one occasion, sickness prevailed
in a family, which failed to obtain
relief from any of the various reme?
dies administered, but upon one of
the panes of glass being broken, and
not repaired, au immediate improve?
ment became apparent, resulting in
ultimate good health.
In a fishing town in Cornwall,
England, some of the houses in the
narrow streets were in such a filthy
condition from the negligence of those
who occupied them, that the sanitary
inspector considered it necessaary to
require the inmates to move into nu
open field, many of whom were al?
ready sick of cholera; they immedi?
ately began to improve. Meanwhile,
the houses were cleaned out, swept,
washed, and then thoroughly white?
washed; but no sooner had the fami?
lies moved in, than the disease began
to spread and assume a more malig?
nant character. The people were again
removed to the field, to sleep and
cook and eat in the open air, when
the same prompt improvement in
their condition was manifested. It
seemed that although the houses
were cleansed, the yards and gardens
around had been the recipients of
offal of various kinds so long that
the very earth was saturated with the
elements of disease.
Cases ore recorded in standard
medical books where whole families
- have been stricken with disease in a
few days, and examination discovered
that the house drains had given way,
and emptied themselves partially into
the well from which the family de?
rived all its supplies of drinking and
cooking water. This was also thc
case in two English prisons, causing
within a day or two an epidemic
dysentery throughout the establish?
ment, which immediately ceased on a
supply of better water.
The difference between cleanliness
and the wont of it, about a house, is
demonstrated in some of tho model
lodging-houses in London, standing
in the midst o? unhealthful surround?
ings; for, in these houses, the number
of deaths is just half as many as in
the immediate neighborhood.
It may be well to know what is au
excess of sickness or death in any lo?
cality. In the Isle of Wight, one of
the healthiest places on the globe, in
a promiscuous population, for every
thousand persons, fourteen died in
the course of a year, from tho ordi?
nary sickness of humanity. In tho
model iodging-houses, above referred
to, about thirteen die out of a thou?
sand, annually; while there are
twenty-seven deaths among the sur?
rounding inhabitants. In some por
r fcions of the British army, when sani?
tary officers ore scientific and con?
scientious men, only nine persons in
a thousand died annually, and, in
some of the best regulated prisons,
in England, the death rate has been
reduced to five in a thousand a year,
bat in these last instances there arc
no children. In ordinary coses of
soldier or prison-life, in what may be
called a "standing army" or barrack
life, not more than twenty persons in
a thousand should die in a year, be?
cause in one sense they have nothing
to do but to keep then- persons and
habitation most perfectly clean.
In England, twenty-two persons
die annually out of 1,000; in the
United States, twenty-four. For each
person who dies, twenty-eight uro
sick. It is estimated that every death
i?Kequivalent to one person being
sick for two years. 200 years ago,
eight persons died out of 1,000 anim?
ally, in London; 100 years ago, fifty;
and now, twenty-two, showing clearly
that, as the intelligence of a people
increases as to the laws of health,
sickness and death proportionately

Summer gauze drosses, abroad, are
bringing into fashion colored silk pet?
ticoats-some of these which are
worn under dresses striped with gold,
are also (rimmed with gold fringe.
The fringes which are now used for
trimming petticoats are frequently

The use of the cigarette at the din?

They are to be provided with costly

Women are a great mystery. Ac?

Plutarch, they can resist the ef?

"Toilet Receptions" are the latest
idea iu New York fashionable society.
Hair dressing has become such an
elaborate affair, and occupies so much
time, that belles now receive their
callers while nuder the hands of their
maids. At present, their intimates
only are admitted, but the sex is uot
limited, nnd gentlemen are also re?
ceived by madame in the most charm?
ing of combing toilets, w.th the
sweetest of smiles and the prettiest
of apologies for the situation.

There is a man in Pennsylvania
who is so forgetful of countenances
that his wife is obliged to keep a
wafer stuck to the end of her nose,
in order that he may distinguish her
from other ladies. Even then he oc-J
easioimlly makes a mistake.
Now that the strawberry season is |
at hand, it might be useful to know |
that in Sicily it is the custom to

Among the numerous demands
upon Gov. Moore, of Louisiana, from
different portions of the country, for
his autograph, is a very modest one
from a young Lady. Inclosed in her
letter is a small octagonal piece of
silk, which she desires tho Governor
to write bis name upon, as she is
getting np an "autograph quilt."
There is no telling what strange bed?
fellows the Governor may fiud him?
self among before that quilt is taken
from the frame.
Mrs. Ritchie, in a letter from Lon?
don to the Philadelphia Home Weekly,
tells this hard story: "Some scandal
has been going tho round of tho
upper classes, that a certain lady's
maid in a certain high family, where
there are two beautiful daughters,
bas received her dismissal after six
months' service, because-because
how shall T write it?-because she
was a man ! One has often heard of
woman disguised as mon, but never
before of men disguised as maid ser?
vants. Tho affair will not bo brought
into court, I hear-silemio."

sent. The ship's bell sold for $5.25;

THE HEALTH OF NEW YORK. The
mortuary records of New York and
Brooklyn, for the week ending on the
16th, exhibit, if they are to be ?elied
upon, unusual evidences of health in I
those cities. Only 303 persons, ac- j
cording to the records died, that j
week, in New York, out of a popn- I
lation of 720,386. lt must be Lorne i
in mind that the authorities, on ac?
count of the business of the city, are j
Anxious to prove that no epidemic is I
prevailing. No case of cholera is j
mentioned among the deaths, though
it is notorious that something like a
lozeu cases, some of them fatal, have ;
occurred in that city.

INDIAN COTTON.-India, perhaps,
more than any other part of the
?world, is fitted to supply our markets
with an abundant, good and cheap
supply of cotton. Hitherto the
quantity of this important staple that
bas found its way to Liverpool and
other principal ports has disappoint- :
ed the anticipation of those best I
acquainted with its immense re- !
sources and capabilities; but when
we consider the difficulties which hail
and are still to be surmounted, we
have reason to congratulate ourselves
that so much has been accomplished.
A glance at the list of countries con?
tributing cotton will show that a very
considerable increase has taken place
in the quantity now imported from
our Eastern Empire; and here wo
must, in justice, remark that this
result is, in a great measure, if not
altogether, attributed to the persist?
ent exertions the Cotton Supply As?
sociation of Manchester have put
forth to overcome the prejudices and
natural conservatism of the native
mind, and to stimulate both the large
and small proprietors to the cultiva?
tion of the cotton plant wherever it
could be grown with success. It has
now been demonstrated satisfactorily
that the land owners of India will,
as elsewhere, give np tho culture of
their accustomed crops where they
find it profitable to do so, and if
only the force of the soil is seconded
by the use of modern agricultural,
cleansing and pressing machinery,
and the means of transport im?
proved, we may confidently look to
our possessions in the East ultimate?
ly standing at the head of the list as
a source of supply.
lu all these respects, however,
India labora under very serious dis?
advantages. The culture of the
plant is collied on in the most pri?
mitive manner, and with implements
of the roughest and most antiquated
character; the product is imperfectly
cleaned; frequently no attempt what?
ever is made to subject it to effective
and adequate pressure, and the
means of transport and intercommu?
nication are positively disgraceful.
If we add to these drawbacks the
fact that the article at present growth
is mostly of?jnferior quality, simply
because it is raised from inferior seed,
we have a state of things presented
deserving of the attention not merely
of the mercantile community, but
also of the Government.
