removed.
Tho board granted Dr. Choppin leave of
absenco until ho recovers his health.
Information has been received that quar
antine against New Orleans has been re
moved by Grenada, Miss., and other points
on tho Jackson road.
PARIS LETTER.
From our reeular correspondent.
Paris, July 23rd,1879.
Two recent publicatisns by an Italian
author, Prof. Lombroso, ou "Criminals and
the increase of crime la Italy," contains
much interottisg matter, though some of
bis cowlvtalon csf be questioned. Study
NEW SERIES NO, 38.
lug tho physical characters of habitual
criminals, the author finds frequent type '
like the Australian and Mongol. Among
the commonest peculiarities are the scarcity
of hairs, smallncssjof crflnlums, sloping fore- '
head, largo jaws, cheekbones, and frontal
sinus, abnormal attachments of crs, hair ,
black (tufted or curly), black pupils, ob
liquity of eyes, etc. Another character in
which criminals resemble savages is tho ,
habit of tatooing generally a very painful
operation and Mr. Lombroso supposes in
tho subjects of it a certain obtuscness of
ensibility. The courageous acts of crimi
nals are attributed to this physical insensi
bility and a certain infantine impetuosity
which makes them heedless of danger.
Hence a frequent disproportion between-,
tho gravity of the crime and that of the
motive; also the cruelly often manifested
by cnminils, and tho large number of sui
cides, especially during the first months of
detention. Prominent among the mental
affections oi habitual criminals are van
ity aud irritability; they boast of their dex-.
teriry in crime, and are readily thrown into
wild passion by littlo tilings. Then there
is the passion for drinking and gambling,
covctousness combined with boundless
prodigality, lovo of dancing, sensuality,
etc. Laziness is a common vice in crimin
als, in Sicily and Sardinia idleness and
vagabondage are thought to account for
crimo to the extent of 63 per cent. Tho
comparatively educated class furnishes a
larger contingent to crimo than the peas
ants. Literary and artistic knowledge of
ten renders possible a certaiu refined and
astute type of crime, and the new desires it
awakens often lead into crime. M. Lom
broso declares the schools instituted in
prisons have contributed to the increase of
criminality, though culture at least makes
crime less ferocious. He points out, too,
that criminals arc often not without a relig
ious sense, as witness the crosses and images
hung around brigands' necks. Hereditary
influence is affiiucd to cause 26 crimes per
ccut. Again, habitual criminals have no
remorse, and the worst are those who behave
best in prisons. Italian statistics prove
that CO men and 80 women per cent, (be
tween 1972 and 1375) have commit-,
ted crimes repeatedly. " Considering
deaths and crimes not proved
he comes to the painful conclusion that the
number of those who fall back into crimo
is nearly equal to the number of criminals
who como from prison. M. Lombroso en
deavors to prove, for certain developementa
of crime, "a physiological ataristic point of
departure to those animal instincts which,
checked for a certain time by education,
surroundioffS.. fear oL cUatiaruV- Intra :
forth ero long under tho influence of special
circumstances." Among tho latter ho
indicates first the seasons, whoso influence
is so evident that ono might make ncriin
inal calendar; next them is
food, when the price of
wheat risesi there is directly an increase of
crimes against property, and dimunition of
crimes against the person, and vice versa.
He mentions also age, celibacy, profession,
irritation, sensations, infirmities, passions,
and insanity. M. Lombroso devotes a chap
ter to the curing of crime. Holding that
adult criminality is incurable, ho advocates
attacking the causes which lead to it; in
vites legislators to better adopt
their laws to climates and
races; proposes abolition of tho
jury more promptness lu punishment, tho
abolition of tho royal grace applied to com
mon crimes, tho sequestration of habitual
delinquents, increase of duties on liquor,
prohibition of sale of it to minors, dcminu
tion of the number of fairs, markets, fetes, .
etc. He condemns tho houses; of correc
tion (riformatiori) for young people; thinks
it better that the imprisoned should be
taught a useful trade ; does not believe in
the efficiency of societies which befriend
liberated prisoners; is opposed to transpor
tations aud thinks establishments for cor
rigibles should be formed, also asylums for
criminals acquitted on the ground of insan
ty. M. Lombroso considers capital pun
ishment is applied too rarely to bo effica
cious, and that if it did not exist tlio num
ber of crimes would neither bo increased
or diminished : but does not conccl its ab
olition in Italy because tho first news of
this might havo a bud effect and encourago
evil-doers. He approves such punishment
as fasting, tho douche, and flogging.
