THE RED PETTICOAT AND THE WHITE.
i.
O. the red. the flaunting petticoat,
That courts the eye oi day,
That loves to flare and be admired,
And blinks from tar away.—
It may delight the roving sight,
And charm the fancy tree;
Rut it it’s wearer* halt as bold,
I'll pass, and let her be;—
With her red, her flaunting petticoat,
She’s not the giri tor me!
But the white, the modest petticoat,
As pure as dritted snow
That shuns the gaze in crowded ways,
Where tollies come and go;
It stirs the primrose on it* path,
Or daisy on the lea;
And it the wearer’s like the garb,
How beautiful is she!
With her w hite, her modest petticoat,
O, she's the girl tor me! [Chas. Mackay.
WHAT MAKES THE NEGRO BLACK.
The following explanation by Dr. Draper,
of New York, possesses some interest, chicily
because it shows what may be said on the
subject:
“Human blood is made up ot little cells,
containing, among other elements, baematin,
a reddish substance; which is largely made
up of iron. One of the duties of the liver is
! tU removing of the old blood cells and the
forming of new upd this duty includes
the carrying out from the system c»r »!! ri'
cess of bmujatin. A hot climate disturbs the
normal action of the blood, and also of the
liver. Imperfect oxygen attends great heat,
and adds to the darkness of the arterial blord,
while, by the want of energetic respiration
which it involve®, there is an over fatness
and torpidity of the liver. The haeraatin,
therefore, by this inaction of the great cleans
ing agent, is left in the system, and wander
ing about, takes refuge in the lower uud
spherical cells of the cuticle, which it thus
bronzes from orange-tawny to negro Mack,
according to the heat of the climate, the inac
tivity of the liver, and the amount of ha:ma
tin left as refuse in the system.
Cold checks the action of Gio liver equally
with heat, and, therefore, the complexion of
the Esquimaux approaches that of the Mon
golian and negro. This is certainly a simple
and an intelligent explanation. The tenden
cy of coloring matter to deposit itself in the
cuticle is well known. But let ic not bo
inougni llllll UII!J U.trfcClllUg me
suit of a disordered, in the sense of an uti
healthful, action of the liver. In that case it
would appear that Providence designed *nly
the temperate zones to be inhabited, and the
wealth of the tropics to be lost to mankind.
In fact, the health and vigor of the tropical
tribes show that all the earth is man's intend
ed dwelling place. _
