Imi of Ire, In health no one ought to drink ice water, fbr it haa oeeasioned fatal inflamma tion of the stomach and bowels, and times sudden death. The temptation to drink it is very great in summer ; to use it at all with any safety, the person should take but a single swallow at a time, take the glass from the lips, for half a minnute, and then another swallow, and so on. It will be found that in this way it becomes disa greeable after a few mouthfuls. On the other hand, ice itself may be taken as free ly as possible, not only without injury, but with the most striking advantage in dangerous forms of disease. If broken in sizes of a pea or bran, and swallowed freely aa practicable, without much chew ing or crushing between the teeth, it will often be efficient in cheeking various kinds of diarrhrna, and has cured violent cases of Asiatie cholera. A kind of cushion of powdered ioe kept to the entire scalp has allayed violent inflam mations of the brain, and arrested fearful convulsions induced by too much blood there. In croup, water, as cold as loe can make it, applied freely to the throat, neck and ehest, with a sponge or eloth, very of ten affords an almost miraculous relief, and if this be followed by drinking copiously of the same iee-oold element, the wetted parts wiped dry, and the child be wrapped np well in the cloths, it faila in to a de lightful and life giving slumber. All in flammations, internal or external, are pro mptly subdued by the application of ice or ,ce '*»t* r . because it is converted into steam and rapidly conveys away the extra heat, and also diminishes the quantity of blood in the veaels of the part. A piece of iee laid on ths wrist will of »rrest violent blooding of the nose. To drink an ice-cold liquid at meals re tards digestion, chills the body, and has been known to induce the most dangerous internal congestion». Refrigerators, struetod to have the iee above are as phil osophioal as they are healthful, for the ice does not come in contact with the water or other contenta, pet keeps them all nearly iee-eoM.

Con* oecticut, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jeraoy, New York* have thundered forth their verdict upon the misrule and the madness of the Pont. Hut much more still remains to be dont. ■ Never was the peril of thn country greater. The Radical party still decrees ths death of representative sal t* S ovet nraent in ten novereign States. Armed witft egro Suffrage, it dosperatsly grasps at a perma# nent loose of power, in defiance of public opinion, at the cost of enormous taxes and of crippled in* dustries, at the cost of Union and Peaoe. To the great battle still to be fought Tun World will give all its efforts, all its energies. It asks of its friends in their turn ns much; its asks of them more readers and a wider influence. It asks this with confidence in its claims as a news~ paper and us an of gun of opihibn.
