THURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 14, isrc
COMPARATIVE LONGEVITY OF WHITES
AND BLACKS.
The Southern Medical Journal of Febru
ary, referring to the mortality statistics of!
the late census, remarks:
“These documents sustain the general im
pression that the African lives longer than the
Caucasian race, one hundred whites and one
hundred and forty-eight blacks being repor
ted as having died of old age. Although we
do not mean to deny the correctness of the
received opinion, we yet believe that it is ex
aggerated. Age has advantages to the negro
which are not experienced by the whites, and
its immunities are generally claimed by the
slave long before bis master would think ot
resting from bis labors. Hence it is, that
very many of our slaves, when .sixty years
of age, imagine or declare that they are
eighty or ninety years of age, and are accor
dingly indulged with an exemption from fur
ther compulsory labor. Many of the citi
aene of tbie place may recollect “old daddy
Quash/1 who averred, apparently in good
faith, that he was so old, that when he arri
ved here from Africa, the Sa>annah river
was so small a stream that he could “step
over it/1 He thought himself one hundred
and fifty years of age, but was probably not
more than ninety-five when he died.
THE CITY BETTER than tiie COUNTRY.
The graceful editor of the “Easy Chair,”
in Harper1® Magazine, indulges in some
pleasantry at the city fashionables, who mi
grate to the country and the watering places
in search of comfort in the hot summer, lie
consoles himself (possibly like the fox in the
fable) that thev have the worst of the bar
gain, and his sage reflections may bring a
•pice of comfort to the discontented ones,
who long to join the general exodus, but
can’t He says of the migrating citizens,
some of whom “have gone to the little farm
houses in little hot valleys, where the sun
biases all day, and the mo quitoes buzz and
sing all night.”
“Poor people! what have they done? Vi hy
should they be driven from these high streets
in which lofty buildings shut out the sun?
Why are they banished from these houses
with spacious rooms into which no sun pene
trates, upon whose floor are cool mattings,
at an find sofas draned
in suggestive drillings. Here C roton flows
from the affluence of Liebfraumlick, from the
crushed grapes of Khine vineyards; here
rare birds sing in cages ; green trees w ave
before the windows ; the ice-man calls aloud
his refreshing merchandise : and for a table
spread with a clean white cloth in the dim,
lofty and cool dining room, around which
stand statues marbly calm, inspiring peace
and tranquil thought, the hot country has
seot its fairest vegetables and fruits and
flowers. Coolness and calmness are the city’s
dowry io the dog days. hat has everybody
done that everybody should be deprived of
these delights?
“In the evening “everybody” is dancing
into a white heat at the gay resorts, or going
to a straw-bed at nine o’clock, to tight with
the mosquitoes and toss into a lever, in the
little hot cottages in the little hot valleys.
But the city sallies forth clad in sw eet linen
and in light shoes—for there is no dew’, no
mud, no draggling in wet grass and slipping
on marshy ground here—and by the light of
faithful day-emulating gas—for there is no
darkness, no pitching into trees, and tumb
ling over stumps, an J stubbing against stones
here—the city seats itself in a bower like
those Mohammed designed for houris in Par
adise, and there it touches the pastoral stoop
of the cobbler, or tastes the sweetest country
flavor in odorous mint. Close at hand gush
es the sparkling stream of soda, like the
bright rivers Arbana and Pharpar; the
fumes of Mocha inspire the air; the cheerful
pop of the beer bottle plays through the
whole like the foot-beat of happy hours pas
sing over, and that mildest of muddlers, lager,
pours ita slow, clouded current by. No mos
quitoes ; no hot dancing; no sharp draughts:
do mud; no draggling dews; but lager and
luxury, cobblers and calm.”
THE LONDON TIMES.
It may not be generally known, says a
' cotemporary, that the leader of the “limes”
is telegraphed every morning to all the prin
cipal towns of England; then written out in
large letters and affixed to a bulletin board,
mod is placed in the public Exchange. At
Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, and other
Iqjhh of less commercial importance, crowds
of merchants and others may be seen early
in the day reading this article! As it thus, in
effect, does the thinking for the mass of the
middle classes of Great Britain, its influence
with them must be very great. It is diffi
cult, in fact, to understand its extent and
power, which no class, we presume, and not
•tea the government itself, fails to acknow
ledge. ____

NO QUACKERY—PRESCOTT S &
LANTZ’S FAMILY MEDICINES—In
presenting these preparations to the public, the
proprietors are aware of the prejudices which
they must expect to encounter. The country
is deluged with quack nostrums, each claiming
to be the ne plus ultra—the medicine ofall medi
cines, and are pushed into notice by the aid of
printer’s ink, with a zeal worthy of a better
cause, notw ithstanding all that has been said
and the essays written against their use by the
profession, and out of the profession. Indeed so
prevalent has become the mania for quackery,
that a recent writer, a man of eminence in the
medical profession, strongly advises that the
subject be let alone. “It exists,” says he, “in
every walk and occupation of life, by the exer
cise of which men procure bread,” and thinks
it time w asted to endeavor to stem the tide.
We have long since thought that the only ef
fectual method ol counteracting this strong cur
1 rent of quackery is to place in the hands of the
people regular Medicines, prepared in accordance
with the rules laid down by the different colleges
of Pharmacy.
When our prairies and mountains catch on
fire, and the inhabitants behold the devouring
element sweeping towards their devoted homes,
what do they do? Do they vainly endeavor to
stop its progress by throwing a fewT buckets of
water on it? By no means! They build up
counter fires w’hich rush forth to meet the ap
proaching torrent of flame, and by exhausting
its food, put a stop to its ravages, or turn it out
of its cousse. Now this is precisely what we
are trying to do. The counter fire which we are
kindling consists in presenting to the public,
Medicines, which are ppepared according to the
laws of science—from formu 1* given by the
United States Pharmacopoeia, except in tw o or
three instances, where they were obtained from
regular physicians of high standing in the medi
cal profession. They are prepared from the :
best of drugs, under the superintendence of a j
regular physician.
For testimonials of their efficacy in the treat- j
ment of the various diseases for which they are
recommended, we would refer to the whole medical
profession throughout the tvorld. We bring ior
! ward no certificates from obscure individuals,
stating that they have been cured of all manner
of incurable diseases, deeming it an insult to
i the intelligence of the community to try to palm
[ off such stuff upon them. If these medicines
are humbugs, then medical science is a humbug.
N. B. Pamphlets treating of the various dis
eases for which these medicines are applicable,
may be had of any of our agents gratuitously.

LEN BERGER'S ANTIDOTE TO MA
IA, is a speedy, safe and radical cure for
Fever and Ague. Chill Fever, Intermittent or
Bilious Remittent Fever, Dumb Ague, and all '
other forms of disease having a Malarious ori- !
gin. It is a remedy based on entirely new prin- i
ciples, effecting a cure by neutralizing the mala
rious poison in the system, without any of the
unpleasant and injurious consequences which
follow the use of Arsenic, Quinine and other
agents in general use.
It never fails to cure the most obstinate case
when taken as directed. It cures immediately; j
rarely will the patient have more than one at- j
tack after the first dose—often not even that.
It is an effectual preventive, neutralizing the
malarious poison in the system, thus averting
the consequences.
It contains nothing in the least degree injuri- j
dus to the system under any circumstances, and
may be administered with perfect salety to the
most delicate infant. For certificates and furth- 1
it particulars, see pamphlets, to be had of the
Agents. Wholesale and retail Agents, JOHN
