From January number of the Knickerbocker. Physical Decline of American Women. Physical Decline of American Women. BY AUGUSTUS K. CARDNER. M. D. EVILS THOUGHTLESSLY PRODUCED. An ovct weening desire for luxury, for dress, fashion or from simple indolence, sometimes from a de dre which may lie laud able, not to produce children to inherit conslittitioiinl discuses, induces many to take precautionary measures against con ception. We have heard clergymen state that a man rliould control the size of bis family as much as a farmer bid flocks ; that he should not have a larger stock than he could bouse and feed ; that thi was in the power of cvei j ono ; th it the mind was given to control the appetites ; that the lower classes were over-run nintr with children, and (he poorer the parents, the more prolific they becunie.' Yes, an i the more healthy mid vigorous. It is these women who do not pretend to cnide the course of events, or make the laws of Na ture conform to thcii wishes, who nre in health and actually doing the work of the world, while the wise iu their own conceit are sufferers, invalid, and useless. The laws of nature and the necessities of our existence Implanted by an over-ruling Pro vidence, cannot be contravened withuut detriment to the system. Local conges tions, nervous affections and debilities are the direct and indisputable results of t lie ajilui imprrfedi, ttgumcntu txlarii, nblu, tivnes geliila, infusimics astringenlet, ricee ra, so commonly employed by the commu nity, who nre so ignorant ou all these mat ters, and who are in fact substituting for one imaginary difficulty iu prospect, a host of ills that will leave no rest or comfort to be found. Oil this subject there is great ignorance ond great ills resulting. Injury of nny gynecologist will convince tho most skeptic al that the general employment of any means for the prevention of conception, is fraught with injury to the female certainly, if not to the other sex also. Exactly how thee evils are effected is not perhaps of easy explanation, physiological laws are not fully known, but of this fact there is no mistake,' and ronsonnbly enough, for sexual congress is thus rendered but a spe cies of self-abuse. We must leave this question thus imper fectly touched upon for your own reflections. It is one of vast importance to the physic al well-being of the American woman, but it cannot bo discussed advautngcojsly in a single article. We could not in conscience have omitted so important a cause of the physical decline of the health of our wo men without alluding to it, and less could scarcely be said In your reflections take one guide to correct deductions. Start with the firm belief that God's laws can not be discarded, superceded or neglected with impunity, INHERITED DISEASES. Il may be remarked that we have not alluded to either inherited or contracted constitutional diseases which result from immoralities, either of ancestors, or from the husband's criminalities, or from wo man's personal debasement. We have not alluded to them, principally because they are far less common than some would fain make it appear. Willi all their follies, the American women are virtuous ; those lo the contrary, we are confident, being rare exceptions. This is ulmou as true of the Amei'iean husbands, the great majority of whom nre true to their marriage-vows, and in a proportion, even in the tainted cities, the hot-beds of vice, fur greater than nny other laud of Christendom. That many women do thus sutler is true ; and where this suffering arises from the sins of cither ancestors or husband, she can only have our deepest sympathies, and surely none can more deservedly claim them 1 But w here moral sin bus brought w ith it phy sical disease, we can add nothing to the teachings of the Holy Writ and of past centuries. 'The way of the transgressor is hard,' even in this nineteenth ccniury, for the truths of time nre the truths of eterni ty. Women can still do something. They have yet a work to perform. Strip off your foliies, your profligacies. Live for something better than dres and fashion, and that ease and self iudulgence which like a toy maiden, whan courted most, fur thest retires. Accept your earthly mis sion to elevate man, lo lift him above t lie perishing dross uud sickly vanities of this wm Id ; 'Allure to blighter worlds and lead the way.' a A LOFTIER END FOR LIFE. If the sins in the past can only be :il!evi-ati-d , in the future 'hey may bo prevented Be a mother to your children ; be a nn panion for your hoys and girls. The fob lies of th'i young are too often only the manifestation of the sins of the mother, sins of omission, of neglect of tho child's thought, which instead of being trained, as the gardener inclines the twig, is allow ed to bp blown about by "every passing breeze. Fill your child's thoughts full ; stuff them to repletion with the good, and there will be no room for the bud to get in. You know how to satisfy the demands of hi" stomach, yet you do not attempt to cater for his nobler mental and moral na tire. Be a companion for your children. Teach them that if weaned from your breast they are not put away from your heart, and from thence let them still draw their spirit as they before fouud their life's blood! Be a mother ! 'My ear is pained, My soul it sick with every day 'a report Of wrong aud outrage with which earth is filled.' A mother ! The fashionable wonian whom we once met dancing wantonly at a city hull when her only child lay at home iek eniog with scarlet fever, is not the type we urge you to copy. She was but au ostrich who leaves its young ou the desert unmls. No, be a true mother, instinct with all the holy attributes of maternity. There are many of you who can, like us, point to the mansions of the blest for the type of a mother uot dead, for lte yet lives iu our hearts, stirring us with a sweet, soft voice, yet ringing louder than clarion blasts through our inmost souls, to duty. . . Ah I if you will but accept the noble of fice yeu are called upon to perform, if you will but occupy the heart of your husband, if yot) will but fold your cbildreu into your own self, know their inmost thoughts, be their confident, their life-spring, their guide, t designated as 'only n little wild,' will be rare, and the world will be renovated. To the c pnr ejoys docs tho true woman say dress nnd fashion ore preferable J Like all good actions, these will rebound with blessings. In the exercise of these duties, m tho eultivation of homo iovs and affections, tho exposures and consequent diseases will not bo met with. Life will not be a constant invalidism. Will yon fiink of these thing's ? We need not speak here of tho habit of so many women of indiscriminate doctor ing, taking of medicines whoso virtues are seen only in newspaper advertisements, in deed in the constant nse of any medicines. Tho evils of over-dosing have been snmVi cntly dilated upon, but we may be permit ted to especially mention the evils arising from the profuse drinking of (Tie waters of v.irions mineral springs, without any regard to the character of the diseases of the in dividual. It is now so general a custom for the better portion of the community to frequent these summer resorts nnd without professional advice to drink inordinately of the waters, that a word of caution seems especially nece.nry. Much local ns well ns general injury are often tho result. There aro many other well-known indul gences which vitiate the health, which have not even been mentioned, but ns most of them are apparent to all, and as we can add nothing new to what others have re peatedly said, we shall leave them without any further allusion. WOMEN'S RIGHTS. The redemption of the sex from their al leged degraded condition as dependent up on nnd inferior to man, is one of tho great controversial topics of the day. If we place ourselves in opposition to this reform movement, it must be seen from the gen jr al tenor of these remarks that it is not. from any skepticism respecting her na'ive capacity, (for the quickness of woman's in tellect, the energy of woman's resolve, and the persistency of woman's determination is a fact generally admitted, nnd we have endeavored to prove, or nt least have as sorted our belief, in her natural physical strength.) Any opposition must therefore arise irom her own slavery to forms aud customs, and observances, from being tied down by fashion and folly. They should remember 'who would be free, Themsehn must strike tha blow.' nnd only assert their independence, but vindicate their claim to equality, not with chalk, powder and balls, or blooj-rouge stnincd cheeks, but by actual attainments and victories over self-degeneracy. At the bottom of all superiority is physical vigor. An inferior mind backed by robust health, can accomplish all that it undertakes, but tortured by disease and restrained by de bility, the proudest intellect is futile to ob tain results. The height of earthly desire can only be striven for with earnestness, to say nothing of its attainment, with the viens sana, in cvrpore sano, a healthy mind in a healthy body. Readers, we have written thee pages not willingly, but after much thoughful de liberation, and after frequent consultations with those whose advice one who c.xn be so happy as to obtain it, is compiled to follow iu accordance with an irresistable feeling of duty. Simple and well-known as what we have said may be to many, it has cost some resolution to say it. It uniy cost you more resolution to follow its in structions. We stand only as a guide-post, showing whither lend the two roads : it is for you to choose which to follow. Changing a Five Hundred Dollar Bill. We recollect an incident which occurred few years since, which illustrates the folly of trusting to appearances, and which will be remembered by many who are wll ac quainted with one of the parties, a wealthy cattle broker of Frumiiighara Mass. It chanced that the broker who is uui versaily known by the cognomen of Uncle' Vanns was sitting in the hotel olB.e in Framingham with a friend, playing a game of checkers, when a fashionably dressed young man stepped up to the bar, culled for a cigar, und, having lighted it, suul,w itliau uir of arrogance to the bar-keeper: " ou will have to trust me for this cigar, as I havo no change; unless," he added, somewhat bombastically," some of you here can change five hundred dollar bill." "Well," said Uncle 'Yunus, slowly look ing up from his checker board, "perhaps I can change a bill for the young man it ho wants to pay fo:1 his cigar." " Yon!" said the young man, somewhat sneeringly, as he glanced nt the plainly dressed Id mun ; and then, with a wink to the by-standers, to call attention to the capital joke be was about to perpetrate, he continued : "You will change mo a couple of them," suid he, slapping down two notes of five hundred each upon the table with considerable emphasis. " Don't joggle the checker-board," said Uncle 'Vanns slowly, as he replaced three or four pieces that had been jostled from their squares by the young mau's emphatic action; then drawing a huge roll from the pocket of his well-worn pantaloons, bo care fully counted out, iu notes of all sizes, colors, and denominotions the required amount, handed them over to the young man, and pocked the two clean Boston bank notes of five hundred dollars each that lay before him, sayiug, " JVe-haps you would like two more of them changed?" Tho young man with an air of bravado, thinking he had stumbled ou soma drover who happened to have only ouo thousand dollars iu his pocket, crammed tho heap of bills the old gentleman passed to him into one pocket, and drew forth two other five hundred dollar notes from auothcr, with a gluuco of triumph to the bystanders, who began to gather around, and, baugiusj theui down upon the table, said 1 'iVe-hups I do l won't you change them, old blister V 'Don't Joggle tbo cbekers, said thj old man, at the draghts danced again upon their qores, and, plunging his hand iuto the other pantaloons pocket, he fished, up another apparently . promiscuous heap of bank notes which he smoothed out, aud rapidly required amount, counted out the which about used up tha suyply, and then pushed them over to the youug mau, pock eting iu return the two large notes. The tide was tvidoutly against the young pressed laughter that was elicited from the lookers on. A bold coup was necessary to regain the ground ho had lost, ond ho at once decided upon it. 'Pre hnpa, my old co 'k, you think that's all tho money I've got, and jre-haps ycu may have tho rags about you for these two beauties,' said he, as ho flirted two one thousand dollar notes out upon tho table before the old man. 'Pretty well crowned, my bantam,' said the latter, as he keenly scrutinized the notes. Ef you keep on through life as you 'pear to have begun it, pre-haps you may have the rags about you that you won't get red of so easily.' Then, plunging his band in to a capacions pocket somewhere under his left arm, ho drew forth a huge, plethoric calf-skin wallet ic which he deposited the two one thousand dollar notes,- and from which he handed the amount in others of smaller denominations, saying, as he did so "Ef yon would like a few more chanzed. just hand 'em out, for the game is waiting.' I lie young gentleman evidently felt that the game was waiting, and it began to lie apparent to him uho was the game ; so he hastily gathered up the money and Drennr- ed to leave, when he was stopped by uncle 'Vanns, who said : Ef yon have got smill bills enonzh. my friend re-haps you had better pny for that cigar. Any broker in Boston will give yon Biils for the pile you've got in your pockets for a fair commission; and," he continued with a grin, " you had better step into the city and tako op the note you were sent to pay, instead of swapping your money round here among cattle drovers." The voung man threw down a dollar on the counter and vutiishcd amid a shout of laughter from those who bad witnessed this scene, while uncle 'Vanus quietly settled Himself in his seat, nnd went on with the interrupted ganio of" checkers." A True Story. A few years ngo, as a gentleman, whom we shall call Divenport, was, ouo evening about duk, riding slowly into the little town of G , he was startled from a re verie in which he was nt tho moment in dulging by a youthful figure which bound ed from the parapet nnd seized the bridle of his horse. His first impulse was anger at what he considered cither a malicious or impertinent interruption ; but the delicate face, slight figure, and, more than all, the pleading and agitated expression which he observetl in the countenunce of the youth, irresistably attracted his attention, and im pelled him to draw bis rein, and request, mildly, to know the cause of au action so unexpected. Iu timid and tremulous tones, in terms in which the incoherence of extreme agita tion was painfully apparent, the stranger informed Davenport that he tiad some lime waited in anxious hope of seeing some indi vidual whose respectability of appearance might pass for a guarantee of his honor, and whom, in consequence, he might have courage to address. In a brief and hur ried manner he informed Davenport that he feared pursuit from some enemy, aud implored to be conveyed to some place of safety. There was something in the tones of his voice which was nt once tremulous and spirited; but that spirit seemed sub dued by a nervous alarm and Tearfulness, which seemed almost effeminate. As he spoke, Davenport felt a growing interest for which he could scarcely account. He requested the yonth to walk by his side as far ns the inn, where he hinted that a further explanation would be necessary. 'And if,' proceeded he, 'you satisfy me, that I shall not be acting improperly, you may command my services.' Having given bis horse to the care of a groom, Davenport cnterel the inn, follow ed by the youth, and immediately desired to be shown Co a private room. 'Well, sir,' said he, as soon as the waiter had withdrawn, 'will you now oblige me by telling me how far I may be of service to yon, and iu what way I But I beg par don; you seem fatigued. Pray, sir, be seated. Shall I call for some refreshments?' The youth stood pale, apparently irreso lute, and evidently abstracted, while the heaving of his breast betrayed violent emo tion. At length he raised his head nnd es sayed to speak. The effort wa3 too much; his lips quivered; the tears which had gath ered in his eyes overflowed; the intended articulation burst, and was broken in un controllable signs and convulsive sobs, and sinking back into a chair, he covered his face with bi hands and burst iuto a violent hysterical passion of weeping. Davenport was amazed. 'What in Hea ven's ti'.ime, can be4 the cause of this ex cessive grief?' said he. 'I beseech you to to confide it to me; and, if it admit of con solution, I swear to do my utmost to as suage it, and to promote your happiness.' The stranger ro'unied a look ot gratituuo and made strong efforts to control bis em tions. He aroso and advanced towards Davenport, and, in performing this action his hat, which he had not hitherto removed and which Davenport hud remarked was worn rather awkwardly, slipped from his head, nnd down fell, lo clustering profusion 'black as the wing of a raven,' the glossy curls of a female. Davenport started and uttered an exclamation of astonishment. He was not less struck with the revelaliou which this slight accident had effected than with the sparkling and highly characteris tic beauty of the bting who stood before him. A thousand thoughts flashed, with tho quickness and evanescence of lightnitig through his bruin, as be tried to catch a glimpse of the meaning of au adventure so strangely romantic. Self is always 60 pre dominant iu the best regulated minds, that tho leading idea, as prompted by 'his vaui ty, seemed to ask him if such a disguise as this were the result of some iiukuowu at tachment to himself. These thoughts, how ever, were but tbo tumultuous crowding of a few seconds. Meanwhile, the stranger, seeing herself discovered; stood confused and agitated. Burning blushes of conscious impropriety suffused her lovely cheeks, which were, the uext iuetant, with revulaiou of feelings, pale aud bloodless as alabaster; and such seem ed the overpowering uatur of her emotion, that if Daveuport had not stepped forward and caught her, she would have UUon to the floor. ' Tell me,' said he, ' I beseech you, . aud tell me calmly and candidly, who are you, and what is tho moaning of this disguise? ' vi, mi, -runs uiusi run imnK oi me r cried she, endeavoring to hide her face, which wus again covered with blushes. 'There is something in yonr countenance, sir, and in your manner, which tells rae that yon are a man of honor, and that you feel for me. I will, therefore, without effecta tion, briefly relate to you the painful situa tion in which I have placed myself. I was obliged cither to do something similar to this, or submit to that which would have been worse than death, 'My father is a cold and haughty temper ed man, who would sacriflco every feeling of his rmtnre in the enhancement of his worldly consequence, Since the death of my mother, which happened wheu I was very young, I hake experienced but little affection from hint. He has latterly, how ever, set his heart upon my Onion with an aged peer, who promises to advance bis po litical influence, and whose cupidity, I im agined, has been excited by tho fortnue which I Inherit through my mother. But, as I would rather die than be made the vic tim of a compact so mean, I straight, tho' perhaps very undutifully, told my father so, and the consequence has been rigorous con finement ever since, joined to treatment so harsh, with a view, no do-ibf, of harass ing me into compliance, and showing so little affection on the part of my parent, that I resolved, if I could by any means, make my escape, to quit him, and proceed to London, where I could claim the protec-1 tion of my deceased mother's family, with whom my father had long been at variance. He, suspecting, I suppose, an occurrence of this kind, kept me totally without mo ney, nnd it was with the greatest difficulty I procured this disgn:se, in which, fearing an energetic nnd immediate pursuit, 1 thoughtlessly, and I now see imprudently left my fjthei's house; and now I begin to perceive the consequence of the step I have taken, I know not how to proceed, unless you, sir,' she said, hesitatingly, 'will be gen erous enough to protect me till I am snfe with my relations in town, when I can pro mise your goodness shall not go unreward ed.' 'There is so much nobleness of mind,' said Davenport, 'in your refusal of your father's improper proposal, and so much spirit in your execution of your plan for evading it, rash as the plan was, that I cannot for a moment hesitate.' Tho truth is, that the novelty of the sit uation into which he was thus suddenly thrown, as protector of a lonu female flying from the tyranny of an ambitious pareut, had irresistable charms for a mind so mould ed as was that of Davenport. ' He imme diately proposed, ns a matter of prudence, and to stop the venomous tongue of sland er, if this adventure should, by any chance, become known, that Miss S , by which initial we shall designate tho stranger, should immediately become the gnest of his sister, who had lately become tho bride of a clergyman at no great distance, and to whom he was, at that time on a visit. To her, he said, he would relate the whole mat ter, hs he could depend implicitly on her prudence. Miss S joyfully and thankfully ac cepted this offer, and a coach was forthwith ordered, and thither they proceeded. Dav enport, on their arrival at the vicarage, lost no lime in iuforming his sister of his strange recoittre, nnd, as the latter possess ed a heart not less kind than his own, she willingly iustalled Miss S as her protege. The latter, of course, was soon transmut ed into her propria persona, and, as she en tered the room in her female attire; the heart of Davenport palpitated as though the 'love-shaft' of Cupid had been 'loosened smartly from his bow,' and had already cm pierced his bosom. And if, in the vanity of youth, he thought that the eyes of Miss S- , as she expressed her thanks, beamed upon him with an expression warm er than that of gratitude, will be be blam ed? The next morning they set orit for Lon don. On his arrival there, after having in formed tho relatives of Miss S of her peculiar situation, he wrote an expos tulutory letter to her father. The reply was a fnrions demand that his danghter should bo immediately and unconditionally restored to him. The letter concluded with sundry threats of the vengeance of the law iu case of refusal. Davenport was now at a loss how to proceed; but having got intelligence that Mr. S was posting up to London, he forthwii h determined to avoid him by posting back to his sister, leaving the ex asperated father to dissipate bis rage as best he might. Tho latter, ou bis arrival in London, made immediate inquiries for D-iveuport, of whom, much to bis chagrin and disappointment, tie could lcaru no tid ings. He then went to the relations of bis deceased wife,, but they could give him no satisfaction . Throust;!i the medium of bis lawyer, be was directed to the country resi dence of Davenport, whither he proceeded. Uu ins arrival there be was airum disao pointed, for be found the house merely in the keeping of the steward, who informed him that bis master bad not resided there for the last six mouths. Iu similar fruitless aud aulious Inquiries he spent nearly a quarter of a year; tor no one thought of directing him to tho vicar ago where the sister of Davenport and ber reverend spouse led a very retired life. Ho was in despair. It seetinai as though his d'Ughter were lost to him forever, aud for t!ii first time in his life, as this thought Ci t tic 1 his mind, he felt like a father, llo was sitting iu his study, upbraiding himself tor tho uukiud colduess with rhich be had ever treated her, and pouJoring upon what steps he should next pursue, w lien a ser vant enteiel and presented him a letter. It was from Davenport, requesting, fn the most respectful terms, that he would tako iuto consideration Ihe uuhappiness wtiijb must necessarily be the lot of bis daughter if he sacriliced her to the arms pf oue whom she must ever disliVe and despise. It concluded by requesting the favor of an interview at the vicarage, a directum to which was added. ., As Mr. S , , perused tjgjetter, some of his former harsh feelings returned upoa him. It was with difficulty to be endured, that a mere stranger should take tha liber' ty of dictating any part of the conduct which he was to pursue with respect to bis daughter. He, however, lout uot a mouieut in proceeding to the place of Interview. It was abont three oVlock on the tiny inbseqnent to that on which he bad receiv ed the letter that be arrived at the vicar age of -' Ott' bis entrance ho waa immediately conducted by the attendant to a drawing-room, 'where ,the first object which struck his sight was his daughter, standing at a window, leaning fondly and affectionately on tho arm of a gentleman, whose noble features beamed with love as he gnzed, with a delighted expression, upon her face. On perceiving her father, she rushed forward, and, kneeling at his feet, exclaimed ' Forgive rae, forgive mo, my dear father, Oh, sir, I fear I have now doubly offended you I Mr. S " violently enrbed the Sow of affection which would have prompted him to raise and embrace her, and said sternly I forgive you, Emily, on condition that you immediately give your hand to the Earl of C ; not otherwise.' The gentleman before mentioned, who had stood a calm observer of this scene, now stepped forward, and, bendiug the knee beside her, said t Yonr condition is impossible to bearer formed, sir. We both need your pardon for having, though unavoidably, proceeded without your approbation. Your daughter, sir, is now Mrs. IJenry Davenport, my wife.' Mr. S stood for a few minutes atrial- ed. 'Is this so. Emily V he at length ex claimed. Even so, sir,' faltered she, hiding her face on the white arm which rested on hef husband's shoulder. i , 'Aud pray, sir,' said Mr. S , tha man-of-the world predominating and peep ing out through his struggling affections, 'what may be your income and prospects? Are they of sufficient weight to balance against the large fortune which ray daugh ter will bring you, and which I am sorry to say I have no control over ? ' ' My income, sir,' said Davenport, raising Emily from her knees, ' is clear four thou sand per annum ; ond my family, political connexions, and influence, are powerful and extensive.' The last clause settled the point. Emily,' said Mr. S , 'give me youf hand. Until you parted from me, I knew not bow much I valued how much I loved you; and now I find you but to lose yoa again. However, Mr. Davenport, your uadd : there take her. (Jod blass you I; may you be happy 1 ' Davenport, with tears in his eyes, thank- ed his future parent enthusiastically, and Emily threw herself on her father's uecls and wept; - '. Never was a union more happy than this, which was so strangely brought about), and this true story will serve as one more iustauce, added to the many, or tho romance of rcaf life. UnIoh Savers Wanted. There is a ' great cry at the South for the Uoion-sat-ing meetings, at the NortJi. The Southern ers don't propose to get np any demonstra tion of the kind themselves, but they in sist that it is the duty- of "all Northern patriots" to set up a mournful howling. Now it strikes us that the business of Union-saving, like that of sharity, may with eminent propriety "begin at home." Up here, nobody threatens -the Union. Nobody in the North wants it dissolved or Ulks about dissolving it, the Union isn't in any dinger at this end of it, and conse quently cau't well be saved from any. But down South, where folks are raving nnd tearing their garments with impatience for somebody to hold them, doing, violence to the Uuion, Union meetings may be held with great propriety. Where the nicer is there apply the plaster. Save yonr end of the Union, Messrs. Southern patriots, and ; we will warrant yod odrs won't go Under I Suppose Mr. Everett, and the Brookses, and Hiram Ketchnra, and Fernando Word, ' and Captain Rynders, and other great and ' good mea of "this section," should bold meetings to proclaim tbeir devotion to the Union, what good would it do 1 Every : body knows it already. It wonld be no news frighten nobody but tbeir owa friends, and folks might say it was got up for political etloct. But just let us have a good large rousing Union meeting down, sny at Columbus, (S. S.) or Richmond, (Va.) with such patriots as Gov. Wise, and Roger A Pryor, and Senator Brown, and Senator Iverson, and Lucius Qmntus Curtius Julius Cesar Li mar, to engineer it ! Thit would be hit ting the nail right on the hoad miking , war on tho traitors right where they live. Such a Union-saving demonstration would carry weight, aud would quiet all apprebea sions ou Ibe subject ? Albany Evening Journal.
