PAUPERISM AND ITS REMEDY. 1 The philosophers who are talking together at Concord on Thursday had something to say concerning one of the most important and difficult problems with which civilized governments have to deal, namely, that of pauperism. They did not solve this problem, bat much that was said about it is, neverthe less, very interesting. A notable feature of the talk was the remarks of Mr. Alcott, who thought that the fact of pauperism implied a great want in our institutions. Society, said he, has not done its duty toward the poor. Others who participated in the conversation seemed to be of the same opinion. This opinion, which we believe to be a just one, is held by many outside the ranks of the philosophers, and various propositions have been lately made designed partially to remedy society's neglect of its duty toward the poor. Thus, in England a bill was recently introduc ed in the House of Lords by the Earl of Car narvon, whose object is to secure to the worn out workingmaa means of subsistence in his old age other than that which the poorhouse offers. In order to effoct this, it proposes that each man working for wages shall be obliged by law to pay the government fifty dollars before reaching the age of twenty-one, and as a convenient way of collecting the money, the bill directs that employers shall be required to deduct a weekly sum from the wages paid until the required amount is made np. On the other hand, the govern ment, in consideration of the amount paid, undertakes to maintain the laborer in sickness and old age by paying him a small annuity, to which the stig ma inseparable from public char itable relief is not attached. A measure iden tical in its ends and very similar in its propo sals has also been brought before the French Chamber of Deputies. M. Nadaud, its pro jector, suggests that five per cent, be deduct ed from the gross wages of each working man, and that to this sum an equal amount be added by the employer and the- govern ment conjointly, in equal proportions. The grand result of this arrangement is to be that at the age of fifty-five the, employe will receive from the government an annuity of four hundred francs. - Neither of these plans will commend itself to American readers as adequate or even prac ticable solutions of the problem to which they are directed. They are, however, based upon sound principles. As the Philadelphia North American says : "It may be taken for granted that the average man earns enough to admit of his making a provision for old age if he could only be brought to ex ercise the necessary self-denial. This, how ever, he will seldom do except upon compul sion, and the great point is to bring this com pulsion to bear in a manner that shall be at once efficient and acceptable. This is done already to a considerable extent by building and mutual benefit societies, and by insur ance companies, for when a man takes out a policy, or joins a society, he feels bound to keep up his payments, and is much more likely to do so than he would be to save a like amount independently of such constraint. As yet the field of co-operation and insurance is only partially developed. The principle of insurance is capable of a much wider ap plication than has yet been realized, and it is in the working out of this principle that the most efficacious means of restricting pauper ism is to be found." In this country, with its vast territory still open to settlement, the problem of pauper ism is not yet so pressing as in Europe, but it is sufficiently troublesome, and bids fair to become more so. If our philosophers, philan thropists and legislators, profiting by trans atlantic experience, can invent some plan that will decrease instead of increasing it they will do a much needed work for their country and the world. As human society is at present constituted, it would be impossible to blot out pauperism, but it is not impossible to lessen it. EDITORIAL NOTES. The race may not be always to the swift, but it would be unsafe to bet against Maud S. or St. Julien. Ex-Senator Bamum is pleased with the ticket nominated by the Republicans of this State. We thought he would be. Business men, who know the value of sta bility, do not take so kindly tqpthe idea of a change as the Democrats would like to have them. We were recently told of a Water bury manufacturer, and a Democrat, too, who remarked that he had been three years getting his business where it would' pay, and as he did not want to run the risk of a change he should do what he could to prevent it by voting for Garfield and Arthur. The New Albany (Indiana) Ledger-Standard, a Democratic newspaper which refuses to support Landers for Governor, says : The Ledger-Standard, long before the deci sion of the Supreme Court on the State con stitutional amendments, predicted that they would be decided unconstitutional. We now predict that a new hearing will be had and the matter reversed. That will postpone the State election to November and be the only thing that will save Landers' bacon, and that will hardly do it." President Fairchild, of the Berea (Ky.) College, who is in position to know what he is talking about, urges Chairman Jewell to look, after the South during the present campaign. He says that it took thirty years of earnest, persistent discussion to prepare the North for the struggle for equal rights, and he wants one hundred of the wisest and most eloquent men of the North sent to ad dress conventions and hold debates in the prominent cities and towns of the South, with National and State rights, universal edu cation1, honest government and our glorious common country for themes. He sensibly remarks that the southern people " are not all hardened, hopeless reprobates. "Arguments and eloquence are no more wasted on them than on other people. Many in the Demo cratic party seem to s northern man, morally, religiously and socially, out of their normal sphere. Seen at the North they would at once be taken for Republicans. There is where they belong, and thither with proper effort they may be led. But if the policy is to abandon the solid South to the Democratic party, our prospects as a nation are gloomy." Those of our readers who are eagerly wait ing for a month with "R" in it will be glad to know why they prefer raw oysters to cooked ones, if they do. Dr. William Rob erts of London tells why, as follows : "The fawn-colored mass which constitutes the dainty of the oyster is its liver, and this is little less than a heap of glycogen. Associa ted with the glycogen, but withheld from actual contact with it during life, is its ap propriate digestive ferment the hepatic diastase. The mere crushing of the dainty between the teeth brings these two bodies to gether, and the glycogen is at dnce digested, without other help, by its own dias tase. The oyster in the uncooked state, or merely warmed, is, in fact, self-digestive. But the advantage of this provision is wholly lost by cooking ; for the heat employed immediately destroys the as sociated ferment, and a cooked oyster has to be digested, like any other food, by the eat er's own digestive powers." We are pleased to be able to add to this the fact that glycogen is isomeric with starch. Dr. Cutting, the State geologist , of Ver mont, has concluded his unique series of tests of the fire-resisting qualities of build ing stones, and he declares, in substance, that no known natural stone deserves the name fire-proof. Conglomerates and slates have '-no capability" of standing heat ; gran ite is injured beyond cheap or easy repair by even so mild a heat as that which melts lead ; sand-stones, including the variety commonly called brown-stone are better, and lime stones and marbles are perhaps the best in this respect. But even they are injured by continuous heat of 900, and at 1,200 are changed into quicklime. Therefore it would seem that no stone buildings are fire-proof, and some of them, Dr. Cutting even says, are as much damaged by fire as wooden struc tures are. Brick, on the contrary, is usually uninjured, and is often rather improved by heat until it is melted. . But as most brick buildings are trimmed with iron or stone, the damage is often considerable, even when the walls stand. To avoid this, Dr. Cutting recommends soap-stone trimmings, which are open only to the objection of-expense. But although brick stands heat so well, it is objectionable because its power to resist pressure, without crumbling from dampness or frost, is less than that of stone. Never theless, as brick is in fact only a kind of ar tificial stone, the search for an ideal building material is not hopeless, but it must be pros ecuted rather by the maker than by the quar rier of stone. Earl Stanhope has been asking the Canter bury (England) Diocesan Conference whether or not any steps can be taken to meet the tendency in the laboring classes to fall away from public worship. It would be well, he said, to consider, first, whether it was due to idleness or to an actual distaste for the Church service that the working classes to a great extent absented themselves from church. He feared that both causes were at work. Due allowance must be made for the workingman's inclination to rest on Sundaynd this inclination might be and was greatly abused, until the whole day was often passed in idleness. The working classes, too, were subject to many varied in fluences now. There were cheap newspapers, popular orators and railway excursions. Re ferring to the danger that, amid these many exciting incidents of the workingman's life in the present day, the old familiar words and forms of the service might seem dull and tame to him, the speaker suggested that this should be mot, not by altering the services, but by adapting them to a certain extent, by shortening them if necessary, by oppointing convenient hours for them, and particularly by considering the special needs of holf educated minds. In conclusion, he advised, among other things, that at the afternoon or evening service all seats should be free, and that well-organized parish committees should be formed to administer charities so as to avoid any appearance of sectarian favor itism. . RECEJiT PUBLICATIONS. A collection of "Little Comedies," by Ju lian Sturgis, is published in the Appletons' New Handy-Volume Series. These exceed ingly graceful little comedies appeared in an English magazine and at once attracted atten tion to their author. There are six of them "Apples," "Fire-Flies," "Picking up the Pieces," "Half Way to Arcady," "Mabel's Holy Day" and "Heather." Of course they are very light, as they should be, but they are very charming. For sale in this city by Judd the bookseller. Another addition to Appletons' New Handy Volume Series is a collection of Maurice Mau ris' sprightly sketches of "French Men of Letters." Maurice Mauris is the pseudonym of a Marquis Calenzano, a native of Nice a Garibaldian, an abject admirer of Victor Hugo, and a man well qualified by experience and inclination to chat pleasantly of the lite rary Bohemians who are by turns happy and very wretched in Paris. The little sketches should not be taken seriously. They offer reminiscences, anecdotes and points picked up here and there. The author's sketches are Hugo, A. do Musset, Gautier, Murger, Sainte-Beuve, Nerval, Dumas-fils, Angier, Feuillet, Sardou, Daudet and Emifo Zola. With many of these the gossipy writer has had personal intercourse, and what he says of Hugo, Daudet and Zola is specially inter esting. For sale in this city by Judd the bookseller. Under the name of "Health," the Apple- tons have published a series of lectures de livered some time ago in the rooms of the Society of Arts, in London, by W. H. Cor field, M. A., M. D. (Oxon). These lectures are a model .popular exposition of sanitary science, clear, precise and comprehensive. They first describe the anatomy and physiol ogy of the body, accompanying the descrip tion with a running commentary throwing light upon the causes and conditions of health and disease. In regard to hygiene the lectures are full of practical 'information in regard to good and bad ways of living from the earliest infancy to old age ; the sort and quantity of food best suited to dif ferent states of health are pointed out, to gether with the nature of common diseases and the methods of preventing them or re ducing their recurrence to a minimum. The chapters on foods and drinks are important, and it should be noted that while Dr. Corfield is not an extremist in either way in regard to the use of tobacco and alcohol, pie points out that both substances are highly injurious to children and young people ; that it is only in idiosyncratic cases that their habitual use by adults can possibly be beneficial. In regard to public as well as private hygiene, Dr. Cor field's work is well worth reading, and per sons who are particularly interested in the present controversy . over vaccination for small-pox will here find a fair statement of it from the point of view taken by the great majority of prominent physicians.

"Beauty's Daughters" is light and grace ful novel from the pen of the author of "Phyllis," "Molly Bawn," etc stories which are popular among readers of fiction. This novel deals with English society life. The plot is a triple one, with three sets of lovers, all of whom ay made happy in the end. As there are no villains to be punished, nor any very serious wrongs to be righted, the reader is spared much that harrows the feelings in novels generally. Still, there is enough of misconception and unhappiness to redeem the story from the imputation of The characters are pleasantly grouped, the situations natural, and there is sufficient interest in the plot to Aider the book attractive.

CORRESPONDENCE. The Pleasure, of Travel by Rail in a Rainy Day Richfield Springs, New York Its Gouty Frequenters What the Water Smells and Tastes Like The Hotels Not the Liveliest Place in Crea tionHandsome Voung Ladies, Watch ful Parents and Shy Young Men What They Find to Do. Richfield Springs, N. Y.,Aug. 10, 18S0. To the Editor of the Joubxax. and Coubisb : Although in some respects cheerless and dismal, a rainy day is not altogether to be despised for a long journey by rail. After having secured a seat to your satisfaction and carefully stowed away your umbrella and other impedimenta where you can easily lay your hand upon them in case of a colli. sion, you settle back in a comfortable posi tion, and with that delightful feeling of securi ty often experienced when snugly tucked up in bed and the wind and rain are beating on the roof and rattling the windows, you mentally ejaculate as the train moves out of the depot, "Let her rain !" A duster is not thought of, and you do not feel in five min utes as though you must thrustyour head out of the window for the sake of inhaling a breath of fresh air, your nose and throat not being so choked up with dust as to require it. The ever-changing view presented as you speed along through the country, al though not sunlit, is fresh and brilliant from its washing, and as the train halts for a mo ment at some country station the gaze is di rected through the "gilt-edged" frame of the parlor car or the plain wooden one of the ordinary car, according to your taste and the state of your exchequer. The foliage spar kles with the dripping moisture and every thing springing from terra firnia is fresh and erect. The pumpkin peeps out from be tween the rows of waving corn with a smile, and flower, leaf and shrub and the mantle of the fields show forth their beautiful shades to perfection, and seem proud at being able to present such a fine appearance. To many such a time would be one of the most gloomy, but to a close observer of nature it is one of the most pleasant. It so happened that your correspondent had such a day in which to make his journey to this place. An additional diversion of the trip was the meeting at Albany of the now much talked of celebrities Garfield and Ar thur, and the listening to good speeches from each of them. They were standing on the rear platform of the New York-bound ex press, and in turn, amid tremendous hurrahs from a tremendous crowd, assured the Al banians of a coding Republican victory in November. ' Richfield Springs" lies in a direct route about twenty miles from TJtica, but owing to its elevation the road winds through the hills for a distance of thirty-six miles before it arrives and terminates at the village. It is called by some a second Saratoga, and in some respects, such as its class of visitors, its springs, its .amusements, etc., it does re semble the above-named place. New York ers and those who have been used to high living are to be found here in large numbers ; in fact there is hardly anybody else here. Daily they may be seen sitting on the hotel piazzas (when not at cards), and discussing the probabilities of being able to get rid of the gout this summer. The sulphur water is resorted to freely for this purpose, and with satisfactory results, accord ing to the testimony of many of the afflicted. A fair description of the water would be to say that it is as clear as crystal and tastes and smells like an egg left over from a last year's picnic Many raise a glass of it to within an inch of their nose and then set it down with disgust. It is said, however, to have great healing virtue, and to be certain to give a new lease of life, with a new pair of legs, to those in need, if they will only persistently swallow and bathe in it. The baths are taken daily, and some are so devoted to the water as to swallow from six to ten glasses at a time. A person who has been known to take twelve glasses at one time is now, we believe, lying under the sod. There are other than the sul phur springs here, but none possessing such renown. A few years ago it used to be necessary to take a stage-ride of sixteen miles before the village could be reached, but the number of yearly visitors increased so rapidly that the branch road of the Delaware, Lackawanna , and Western was built. About I,fi00 -people compose the native population, and at present there are probably 8,000 visi tors quartered at the hotels and cottages, the largest numoer tnat tne place can boast of for the lost twenty vears. Amour a half dozen or more hotels, the Spring House takes the lead, and although it is not a modern structure, is one that has a pleasant air and inviting look about it. It is very large and roomy, with wide piazzas running the whole length of the front and one side of it. Al though it will accommodate between three and four hundred, it is not large enough to room an tnose wno apply for shelter this sea son, and people have been turned away daily or "roomed out" in cottages and neighboring dwellings, of which there are many desira- oie. xo me lerc, ana belonging to the hotel, are very extensive grounds, with fine trees spreading their branches and throwing welcome shade over the numerous and neatly kept gravel walks which wiud through a beautiful lawn. Inviting rustic seats and arbors are scattered about, and judging from the fact that they are most of the time occupied, are highly appreciated by the guests and others. For the retailing of some racy piece of gossip, (gossip being no stranger here,) or for the telling of and listening to 'tne oia, old story," no more ap propriate places could be found. Although many complaints are heard, the table is un doubtedly superior to that found at the usual summer place, but it is said by many that at the American, Canadarago and other of the nrst-eiass nouses, tne cuisine is better, and that it does not require the expense of i per day either. Itichneia springs is by no means the live liest place in creation, the majority of the visitors coming nere undoubtedly for rest and health. The first they get without a doubt, and the other probably, as the air is very pure and the chniate, ludging from tho present, delightful. It is very comfortable through the day, with very cool evenings and nights, so that an extra blanket has been needed during the past week. Occasionally, like the sputter of a candle, the spirit of the young folks asserts itself, and there is a frolic and a good time in consequence, but the "properness" of things is generally brought to such a fine point that a dumper is put upon a great many projected plans for amusement. For a young man who is averse to matrimonial complications, this may oe saia to be a dangerous place. lhe hotels are full of pretty young ladies, and words cannot fitly describe the style and beauty of their costumes. About 10 a. m. there may be seen from fifty to sev enty-five of them sitting o the piazzas, at tired principally in white and light colored dresses, set off with stylish bows and ribbons such as only New York young ladies know how to procure and how to wear. They are all apparently interested with their fancy work or novels, but in reality are scanning the horizon in search of a young man, and now and then one is captured. They are very Bcarce, however, and wary of venturing into sight unless possessed of unusual cour age. it does not take the residents here long to find out the extravagant tastes of the visitors, and consequently their prices range accord ingly. The horses are not what they ought to be for pleasant driving, but a good horse would surely become a second class one in the hands of promiscuous drivers. The drives afford very beautiful scenery, although not more so than is common in almost any part ofcthis State. Lake Canadarago, about two miles from the village, is one of the principal places of resort and affords the usual pleasures of sailing and rowing. The Lake House, as well as some other more dis tant resorts, is noted for its fine dinners, and game, in and out of season, is furnished at Delmonico prices, that would moke the most respectable pocket book be ashamed of its leanness. It may be added that a moderately good meal can bo obtained at moderate a price. The equestrian art is practiced a good deal, and evidences of the training of the New York riding school which, by tho way, would be a capital insti tution for New Haven to imitate are brought prominently forward. The young ladies, in parties of six or eight, mount their horses and go for a ride, and gentleman escorts are permitted to attend them. On tho whole, Richfield is a charming place for those who can be satisfied with no special attractions besides pure air and sulphur water, and the crowd of visitors increas es every year. C., Jn. The Training of a Hindu Faplr. From the New York Times. The physiological training of the Hindu fa kir for his profession is something worth study. He begins by abstention from food during the day and taking a very reduced quantity at night. Certain articles are strict ly prohibited ; among them are salt, fish and meat, oil and wine, mustard, onions, garlic and turnips. He must refrain from spices, from all acids and acid preparations, and from all pungent articles, except ginger. His carbonaceous food ii limited to rice and wheat, his nitrogenous to milk and melted butter, (ghata,) and as to the carbon hydrates, honey and sugar are alone admissible. There are two or three articles familiar to Euro peans only by their Bengal names, "which he is permitted to use ; but they are composed of the preceding ingredients in various propor tions. Water is positively prohibited; but some socts allow the devotee to drink spar ingly of alcoholic beverages. Hs must next learn how to live underground, and for this purpose he digs a subterranean cavern, (the gublia, ) in which he passes most of his time. The temperature must be warm and perfectly even, and the cavern is entered only by a hole which can be closed with a stone. It is a living sepulture. Indeed, the essentials of the mode of life are the complete occlusion of the free oxygen, impenetrable darkness, and an unbroken silence. He lies upon a pal let of cotton or wool something warm and soft at the bottom of this subterranean cell, and repeats from day to day the mystic word "Om," the Hindu name of the great abstrac tion of universal life a being more transcen dental than that of Hegel. The devotee takes occasional walks, but is very slow in his move ments, so as to lessen the rapidity of thej.es piration. He repeats his "Om," sometimes 10,000 times a day, and has othor syllables, among which are "Ram," "Ham," "Lam," "Ram," "Soham," "Yam," of which he per forms end'ess series of repetitions, arranging them in every order of which they are sus ceptible, and rigidly following a prescribed order for a given number of repetitions. He trains himself to sit squatted for hours to gether in a certain peculiar attitude, (the sid dhasana,) which consists in doubling the left leg under the body, so as to rest upon the heel of the left foot, while the right leg is ex tended forward. In this position, with his right arm extended, he holds the big toe of the right foot in his right hand, and with the left arm flexed under the body.grasps the big toe or tne lert root, xnis brings tne lower part of the face to rest upon the breastbone. In this awkward and difficult attitude the fa kir sits for hours together ; that is, when he is not standing npon his head or training himself to take a deep inspiration and expel it slowly taking 12 seconds to breathe in and 24 to breathe out the cubio feet of atmos phere that the lungs can contain. Besides these exercises his tongue has to be cut 24 times, so as to sever all the ligatures one by one, and enable him to flex it backward and close the throat with its tip. This extraor dinary discipline is steadily prosecuted for years, and at length the fakir tries his first experiment with feigning death, allowing himself to be shut up in his subterranean cell and sealed therein with every precaution, generally for a week or two at first, then for a month or two months,, lying or squatting in a state of trance, with the tip of the tongue closing the throat, without perceptlbe action of the heart, and with the circulation of the blood apparently suspended. He would never recover hiutftelf from this con dition of suspended animation; but he can be recovered by proper manipulation, which commences in pouring hot water over the shriveled body, stiff and rigid as a corpse, for some minutes. As the bathing In hot water continues, the arms and legs gradually relax from their rigor. A hot cake is next placed upon (he crown of the head, and the plugs (made of cotton soaked in wax) are re moved from the nostrils and ears. The next steps it being understood that assistants are all this time engaged in rubbing the limbs are to pry open the rigid jaws and restore the tongue to its normal position ; then to rub the eyelids with melted butter until they can be unclosed, revealing the glazed and motionless eyeball. Finally, the hot cake on the top of the head is renewed. The heat acting upon the nervous centers of respira tion and circulation, the breast heaves with a convulsive throe, and the heart starts with a violent pulsation. So many cases have been attested of this remarkable condition of simu lated death that its acts are practically be yond dispute. Now, something of this kind would make a real impression ; it has pow erful dramatic features, and its physiology furnishes ample verge for novel and original observations. A heavy thunder shower with a strong wind swept through Suffield Thursday morn ing in the north part of the town, accompa nied with hail which riddled Edward Austin's Bix-acre piece of tobacco, which had been in sured last week for $1,000.
