‘Health the poor man’s friend, the rich man's Lliss.
1. Lether go to bed at ten o’clock—
nine, il she pleases. She must not
grumble, or be disheartened hecaunse she
may not sleep the first night or two, and
thus lay ruminating on the pleasures
from which she has cut herself off'; but
persist steadily for a few nights ; when
she will find that the habit will produce
a far more pleasant repose than that
'whicll follows a late ball, a route, or as
'selnlvly. She will also rise in the morn
ing more refrcxhed—with better spirits,
and a more blooming complexion,
' 2. Let her rise about six o’clock in
sutmner and eighitin winter—immediately
wash her face and hands with pure wa
ter—cool or tepid, according to the sea
'son of the year ; and if she should by un_v‘
means be induced to sweep her room, or
bustle about some other domestic con
)ccrus for about an hour, she would be the
gainer as well in health as in beauty, by
the practice.
3. Her breakfast should be something
wore substantial than a cup of slops,
whether denominated tea or coffee, and
a thin slice of bread and better. She
should take a soft boiled egg or two, a
little cold meat, a draught of milk or a
cup or two of pure chceolate,
? 4. She should not lounge all day by
the fire, reading novels, nor indulge her
self” in thinking of the perfidy of false
}svvuins, or the despair of a pining dam
sel: but bustle about—walk or ride in
the open air, rub the furniture, or make
puddings—and when she feels hungry,
cat a custard, or something equally light,
in place of the fashionable morning treat
of a slice of a pound cake and a glass
of wine or cordial.
{ 5. Let her dine upon mutton or beef
plainly cooked, and not too fut—but she
Fc(-d not turn away occasionally from a
fowl or any thing equally good; let her
only observe to purtake of' it in modera
’tinn, and to drink sparingly of water dur
jing the repast.
6. In place of three or four cups of
strong tea for supper she may cat « cns—|
tard—a bowl of bread and milk—similar
articles, and in a few hours uflcr\vurdsl
let her retire to bed,
7. At other periods of the day which
are unoccuvied by business or exercise,
let her read—no sickly love-tales—but
good humored and instructive works—
calculated, while they keep the mind
unincumbered with heavy thoughts, to
augment its store of ideas, and to guard
it against the injury which will ever re
sult from false perceptions of munkind,l
and of the concerns of life,
Jowrnal of Health.
“A man,” says Sir William Temple,
“has but these four things to chose out
of—to crercise daily, to be very temper
ale, to take physie, or to be sick.” We
’mn_v venture to assert, with a much lat
er writer that the principle secrets of
health, are, early rising, exercise, per
sonal cleanliness, and leaving the table
l unoppressed. }
When a family rises early in the morn
ing, you may conclude the house to be
well governed, and the immates indus
trions and healthy.
With respect to exercise, there is a
simple and benevolent law of nature—
Karn, that you may enjoy.” In other
words—secure a good digestion,by exer-
As much, perhaps, may besaid con-|
cerning ablution, as exercise. “Dispel
the ill humors from the pores.” Clean
liness is a virtue, thongh not-the first in’
‘rnnk, one of the first, at lcast, in neces
‘sity. ‘
} On the subject of temperance, that
sturdy moralist, Johnson, speaking of a
hook in which it was recommended ob
served, “Such a book should come out
every thirty years, dressed in the Illlulni
of the tir;»s.” “He that would eat!
much,” says the proverh “must eat lit
tle.” Let us not, however, confound
temperance with starvation—on the con
trary, it is strictly moderation. We may
be intempeiatcly abstemious, as well as
intemperately luxurious. |
From all that hasbeen said and written
on the subject—from the experience of
every age and every clime, we may con
clude, that “they are the most healthy,
who have nature for their ('unk—-hilllfll‘l“
for their eaterer ; who have no doctor
but the sun and fresh aiv—and no other’
physic than temperance and ¢ereive.””
From the January No. of the Christian Examiner
” If we have succeeded in conveying
lthc impressions which we have aimed
'to muke, our readers are now prepared
lito inquire with interest into the condi
”tion and prospects of literature among
| ’oursclvcs. Do we possess, indeed,what
may be called a national literature?
|| Have we produced eminent writers in
’the various departments of intellectual ef
||fort? Are cur chiefresources of instrue
tion and literary enjoyment furnished
| :from ourselves? We regret that the re
}’ply to these questions is so obvious. The
few standard works which we have prn-,
;ducod, and which promise to live, can
‘hardly, by any courtesy, be denominated
'a national literature, On this point if
'marks and proofs of our real condition
‘wcre needed, we should find them in the
ccurrent apologies for our deficiencies.
'i()ur writers are accustomed to plead in'
cour excuse our youth, the necessities of
[!a newly settled country, and the direc
tion of our best talents to practical life.
"Bc the pleas sufficient or not, one thing
‘they prove, and that is, our consciousncss
.lnfhaving failed to make important con
:tributiuns to the interests of the intellect,
l\Ve have few names to place by the side
(of the great names in science and lit(-ru-‘
‘ture on the other side of the ocean. We
want those lights which make a country
conspicuous at a distance. Let it not
‘be said, that Luropean envy denics ourl
‘Just claims, In an age like this, when
the literary world forms a great t'umily,‘
‘and the products of mind are circulated
!more rapidly than those of machinery, it
i a nation’s own fault, if its name be not
’!l)ronnuncod with honor beyond itself. We
l_‘lmve ourselves heard, and delighted to
‘hear, beyond the Alps, our country de
’:signutcd as the land of Franklin. This
name had scaled that mighty bnrrier,and‘
'made us known where our institutions
gand modes of life were hardly better un
“dcrstood than those of the natives of our
Nl We are accustomed to console our
|lsclvcs for the absence of a commanding‘
literature, by urging our superiority to
l:ulhcr nations in our institutions for thc'
diffusion of clementary knowledge thro’l
‘all classes of the community. We have
‘here just cause for boasting, though por-‘
Jhaps less than we imagine. That there
I'm'c gross deficiencies in our comnmn‘
'schools, and that the amount of know
| ledge which they communicate, whcn‘
!'compurcd with the' time spent in its ac
’:quisition, is lamentably small, the com
munity begin to fcel. There is acrying
fnccd for a higher and more quickcning'
kind of instruction than the laboring pxu'tl
":ut'socivty have yet received, and we re
}' joice that the cry begins to be heard.—
But allowing our elementary institutions
‘i to be ever so perfect, we confess thut'
‘they do not satisy us. We want sum(‘-l
‘thing more. A deal level of intellect,
'even if'it should rise above what is com
‘mon in other nations, would not answor‘
‘our wishes and hopes for our cmmtry.—“
j'\Vc want great minds to be formed
‘among us, minds which shall be felt ut'ur,‘
and through which we may act on the
r\x'(vrld. We want the human intellect to
“do its utmost here, We want this peo
‘ple to obtain a clain on the gratitude of
the human race, by adding strength to
the foundations, and fulness and splen
‘dor to the developement of moral and re
ligious truth; by originality of thought,
by discoveries of science, and by cnn-‘
‘ tributicns to the refining pleasures of taste.
and imagination. " v v '
" The great distinetion of our couulry,is,‘
"thut we enjoy some peculiar advnmngmi
' for understanding our own nature. Man
lis the great subject of literature, and
.’jnsu'r and profounder views of man may
be expected here, than elsewhere, ]l_l‘
:, Furope, we meet kings, nobles, priesis,
Slpcnsuntn. How much rarer is it to meet
|'mo-n: by which we mean, human beings
" conscious of their own nature, mld con
lwcions of the utter worthlessness of all
L outward distinations, compared with what
l'is treasured up in their own souls, Man
,‘clmw not value himsell as man, 1t is for
| hix blood, his rank, or some artificial dis
tinction, and not for the attributes of hu-
{manity, that he holds himself in respect.
The institutions of the old world all tend
to throw ebscurity over what we most
‘need to know, and that is, the worth and
claims of a human being. We know
]‘tlmt great improvements in this respect
‘are going on abroad. Still the many are
too often postponed to the few, The
‘mass of men are regarded as instruments
:to work with, as materials to be shaped
for the use of their superiors, That
‘conscioysness of our own nature. whisie
{conuuu-, asa germ, all noble thoughts,
‘which teaches us at once self respect
‘and respect for others, and which binds
I'us to God by filial sentiment and hope,
this has been repressed, kept down by
[ establishments founded in force; and lit
crature, in all its departments, hears, we
think, the traces of this inward degrada
l tion. We conceive that our position fa
'vors a juster and profounder estimate of
'human nature. We mean not to boast,
"but there are fewer obstructions to that
‘moral consciousness, that consciousness
"of humanity, of which we have spoken.
Man is not hidden from us by as many
disguizes as in the old world. The es
sential equality of all human beings,
founded on the posssession of a spiritual
progressive,immortal nature, is, we hope,
‘better understood ; and nothing,more than
single conviction, is needed to work the
mightiest changes in every province of
human life and of human thought.
’ We cannot close our remarks on the
‘means of an improved literature without
l“ufl'cring one suggestion. We carnestly
reconunend to our educated men a more
"cxlcnsivc acquaintance with the intel
lectual labors of continental Furope.—
Our reading is confined too much to Eu
glish books, and especiully to the more
reeent publications of Great Britian. In
this we err. We ought to know the
different modes of viewing and discuss
ing great subjects in diffcrent nations.—
|We should be able to compare the wri
tings of the highest minds in a great va
’lnicty of circumstances.© Nothing can
| favor more our intellectual independence
‘and activity. Let English literature be
‘ever so fruitful and profound, we should
‘still impoverish ourselves by making it
‘our sole nutriment. We fear, however,
that at the present moment English books
‘want much which we need. ,The intel
lect of that nation is turned now to what
are called practical and useful subjects.
Physical science goes forward, and
‘what is very encouraging, it is spread
with unexampled zeal though all classes
of the community. Abuses of govern
‘ment, of the police, of the penal code, of
charity, of poor laws, and corn laws are
laboriously explored. General educa
‘tion is improved. Science is applied to
the arts with brilliant success. We see
‘much good in progress. But we find
little profound or fervid thinking, ex
presscd in the higher forms of literature.
The noblest subjects of the intellect re
ceive little attention. We see an al
most total indifference to intellectual
and moral science, In England there is
a great want of philosophy, in the true
sense of that word. 1f we examine her
reviews, in which most of the intellectu
al power of the mation is expended, we
meet perpetually a jargon of criticism,
which shows a singular want of great
and general principles in estimntinfi
works of art. We have no ethical wor
of any living English writer to be com
pared with that of Degerando, entitled,
‘Du Moral Peyfectionnement ;* and al
though we have little respect for the rash
generalizations of the bold and eloquent
Cousin, yet the interest which his met
aphysics awaken in Paris, is in our esti
mation a better presage than the lethar
gy. which rr«-vunls on such topics in
England. In these remarks we have no
desire to depreciate the literature of
England, which, taken as a whole, we
regard as the noblest monument of the
human mind, We rejoice in our descent
from England, and esteem our free ae
cess to her works of geience and genius,
as among our high privileges, g'or do
we feel as il' her strengh were spent.—
We see no wrinkles on her brow, no de«
crepitude in her step. At this moment
‘she has authors, especially in poetry and
fiction, whose names are “fanuliar in our
‘mouths as houschold words,” and who
can never perish but with her language.
Still we think, that ut present her intel
lect is laboring more for herself than for
| mankind, and that our scholars, if they
'would improve our literature, should cul
tivate an intimacy not only with that of
England, but of continental Europe.
