Diar rhea is often nothing but cholera in its incipiency, and if not properly attended to, may prove fatal. Let us impress upon you the importance of prompt and early attention. Nip the disease while in the bud. Resort to your family phy sician, or ad minister some reliable medi' cine, which we shall spoak of hereafter. During the summer months no family alioald fail to keen always ou hand a bottle of some approved diarrhoa remedy, to be osed at a moment s warning in case of emergency. - It might be advisable, and no deubt no., t.nnnn'miil fnr tha Ttnaxrl nf Mnvor I Ll J U..MVUW..., and Aldermen to appoint a committee or JtioarQ ot rnysicians, wuobb uuij n .l.oll V,a m oi.it p)i nrl ever dwelling in tho city and asccrtnin their true san itary condition by a personal examina tion of the premises ; to order the imme diate removal of all impurities; to recommeud disinfectants and to adviae how they shall be used; to advise in regard to ventilation, cleanliness and diet; to report the condition of all streets and alleys, and all lmptriea .n q n il rlm.inn.i7A: to inouire of each family the number of casus of diar rhea end the importance or givinn u l.mAllilA .Itantinn. either bv the nse of proper remedies or by sending for a physician; and it cases oi cnarny prac tice present themselves, to prescribe and furnish medicine for all such cases, and in every other way to teach the inhabit ants what fo do and not to do, and also teaching them " more prophylactics and less therapeutics." If this is done at all, it should not be delayed, as golden mo ments are beinc lost. Treatment of Cholera and Diarrhea v,;,V,aan.i;,it- tho iintirinc nnrl united exertions and skill of the abloat, wisest and most experienced pnysicians oi me land, the mortality of cholera continues frightful, bidding defiance to the best endeavors to give relief. During its prevalence among us, every passing breeze whispered the- death of a fellew being. Cannot this blighting hand of disease be partially paralyzed t Are there no means by which its terrors and horrors may be abated? Prejudices should be bnried, and calm reason aud judgment act as our guides. The beaeon lights of other days, peer ing their lofty heads above the turmoils of lile, should aid ns in rescuing our fellow men from that dreadful scourge which has numbered its victims by the million. Routine practice should be discarded; it is dangerous in the extreme. If we should oppose the loved and cherished opinions of older physicians, it will be at the instance of an nnllinching duty, which we inietid to present fairly and sqaarely, aud if any wish to controvert or dispute or disagree, we hope he will have the manliueea aad confidence to present his views publicly.

We believe that nature revolts, and the system writhes, and rapidly sinks under its use. It may be said we are presuming very much indewd, to oppose the treatment of nearly the whelo saedical profession of the South. Be it so.

A SAD STORY OF A ELrI'E MEXT. An, Unnatural Father Dilves Bis Daughter into a Life of Shame. From the St. Louis Times. The eirclos of uDPertendora have been terribly excited lately over a case of heartlessnesB on the part of one of our loadina merchants, which has been the means of first separating his daughter from her husband because he was poor, a. ml then of drivinir her, by continued acts of neglect and coldness, to a life of shame and crime, r or the moment, we suppress the name of tho parties to the transaction, merely exercising the right of a public journalist to chronicle tl e facts in tbe cuse. The daughter a year since, contrary to the wishes of her father, married a clerk in a wholesale house on Main street, whose only crimo was his inability to set np an establishment which could com pare with the princely one of that stern and haughty father, lie was honored and resDected by bis employers, received a salary of three thousand dollars per annum, with prospects ot lurtner ad vancement was possessed of a good character and excellent repute ; but he was. in aristocratic pariauce, poor, and that is a crime which our modern Cropsus can never foriive. Mary loved him fondly, if not wisely, despite the opposi tion of the governor, and insisted upon becoming his wife. Other elopements had occurred nnder just such circum stances before, and stern parents had relented in their, wroth, and linally re euived both the runaways back, and Mary thus fondly hoped would be the sequel to her hasty weddins. Not so. however, was the result Mr. 8. was made of sterner mclar. He had sworn not to forgive Mary, and with tb same deter mination of character which led the fair Julia to exclaim, "My honor, Clifford; my hoaor I" he said, " I have pledged my word, aud it must not be broken. With tbe narrow minded vices of sor did wealth, Mr.- S. received a daughter s heart and affection as so much corn or tobacco, subject to the fluctuations of the market alone, and to be disposed of to the highest bidder; and this selhsh yiow of the subject does more, perhaps, to destroy domestic peace and quiet, than nny other engine of fashion's crea tion. For a season the houeymoon passed off agreeably, naught disturbing the social harjnincss ol the newly wedded pair, Bave the continued alienation of daughter and father. A mother s wrath cannot endure forever, and Mrs. S. clan destinely visited her daughter, and as sured her that if she would leave her husband, she could return home and bo received as ot yore. To this proposition Mary at first iu distantly refused to listen, but being repeated, she argued, hositatod, and then consented, and gathering together a few of her souvenir3, placing upon tlie tauie in tho parlor a note for her husband stating, " I have gono home to my father. Farewell. Be happy. Mart." The blow, so unexpected and suddun, fell with crushing effect upon the youug husband, and at first thought he resolved to plunge madly into pleasure and vice. But sober .second thought cuuie to his relief, and commendably he pursued his regular avocations as usual, not even mentioning the name of her who, de spite her almost ucforgiveable behavior, he still loved fondly and devotedly. Mary returned homo and met her father, and, with arms extended, she rushed toward him, but to meet no as suring reception. He merely extended his band, and with no nioro familiarity than he is wont' to assume in tho count iug room, or on 'chanue, respouded : "I hope you are well, Mary." Poor girl ; she now saw that of the two evils she had chosen the greater, and despite her mother's caresses, was miserably un happy. She had deserted her husband, lost her father's respect, and now felt in full force the meaning of whnt it was to be alon in the world. Days passed, and no letter came from her husband asking her to return. Her father's house was so chilling and forbidding to her that she could not censent to become the mere child of charity. Again she packed up her few remaining art'.cles.of dress, and, starting into the world alone, hired a small apartment and took in sewing for a living. For a while she earned a fair livelihood, but soon em ployment fell off, end rent day came round with no money to meet the de mands of the landlord. In this terrible dilemma where could the go? Her husband, though he could never consent to live with her again, would cheerfully have rendered her any pecanisry assistance in his power, but she had wronged him too deeply to ever see him again. She went, therefore, to her father, and begged for Heaven's sake tkal he would loan her sufficient money to cover her head from tbe storm. With as little feeling as a stone he per emptorily refused to assist her ia the ilighteM derree. She betgeJ almost oi ncr knees for a little succor, and plead ia!y inquired, "Where shall I go 7 " - Go to the devil, for ail I care,' was the response. tnrai:ed at t'ae remark, she replied. "I e-i.'f CO to h devil, father, and the tin bo upon veer head. I will humble yoar pride to lUe dual, even if I per J my soul." The entreaties of her another were in vain. Wildly she rushed from tb houMi into the street, ripe for any sin. Sftlan never deeerts a r.r creature in suck an emergeacy, aad she sooa fell to LARGENT CITY OIKCrEATIOX. with a fast young man, who had known her before her marriage. She told bim the story of her wrongs. He accommo dated her with money, and an assigna tion was made for the following day. She is now irreparably lost, and belongs to that class of unfortunnto females, the pattering of whose feet is heard far Into the late hours, endeavoring to sell body and sjaiil for a pecuniary consideration. Tbe husband ia disconsolate, the mother full of grief, while tbe father is at obnti nato as flinty rock. Thus ends another chapter in fashion able life not a fancy picture, but terrible in its truthfulnoss. Sir Archibald Alison. From tbe New York World. The cable brings us intelligence of the death of the celebrated historian- ;r Archibald Alison. In the world of let ters, in the early part of the present cen tury, there was none so celebrated as he. Hi writings, able and graceful, wore seized with avidity by the English and American reading public, and the labors of bis maturor years prove of invaluable service to the student of European his tory. He was born at Kenloy.December 29, 1792, his father, a Scotch divine, havinir before him created for himself a nameas the author of "Essays oa Taste, I appearing in the Ldinburg Urriew. Educated at the University of Edin burg, he adopted tho law as a profession in 1814, and, having traveled conside rably over Europe, he was in 1822 appointed to the honorable position of Advnnatfl Hftneral. From this Post he rose gradually, distinguishing himsalf , I 1 1 , rt 1 Tor a Keen energetic lawyer, nou in ino he became a member of the Crown Council. Four years later hewas ap pointed sheriff of Lanarkshire, an office which is, in Scotland, the highest judicial station next to the bench. Ia the same vnar he published his first work a rather dry one "Tho Principles of Criminal Law, and a year later a com panion volume from his pen oppeared, "The Practice of the Criminal.' Law." By these two works his reputation as a writer was established, and so much were they esteemed that they be came Btandftrd authorities with the bar -of Scotland. He now turned his attention to the great work with which his name will always be associated. The first volume of " The History of Europe appeared in 1833, and the suc cessive nine volumes at intervals during the successive yean. This work achieved an immense success. It ran through a large number of editions ia England, was reprinted in this country, and trans lated into French, German, and even Arabio and Hindoostanee. This well known work-is one of the most remark able historical compositions in exis tence. Tbe information contained in it must have taken a large number of years iu its compilation, aud a considerable chnrm attaches to it from its entire re liability. . Sometimes tbe author allows himself to be biased lby his high Tory principles, but these occasions are few, and the work is probably the most un prejudiced that may be found. To those who have seen it, the clearness of the style and brilliancy of the ideas con tained in it, must have been apparent, and the later volumes to the time of the accession of Louis Napoleon are char acterized by a conscientious accuracy and .unbiased criticism. Tbe other works of Sir Archibald Alison are his "Principles of Population" aad "Life of the Duke of Marlborough." In 1351 he was elected rector of the Glasgow University, and soon aftor the founda tion of the Derby-d'Israeli Cabinet, was created a baronet His death forms a gap in the literary world difficult to fill up. ' , Ihen and Now. We find the following article in an exchange, but know not who is its author. The contrast presented is so striking and admirable that we cannot forego tbe temptation to give it to our readers. If furnishes food for reflection. Under the caption of "Then and Now," the writer says: " In tho winter of 18C1, in the theater at St. Louis, the wife of the principal actor tossed ber husband our National flag. He caught, esperly unrolled it, and carefully and audibly counted over the starry representatives of States stamped upon its folds. As he pro nounced the final number, 'thirty four,' he held the flag afloat, nnd triumph antly exclaimed, 'thank God, they are all there I' amidst an enthusiastic ap plause that shook the building like an earthquake, aud melted to tears hundreds in the vast assemblage. "In the winter of 18G5,!in the House of Representatives at Washington, creden tials bearing the broad seal of the State of Tennessee were held up in view of its members. Thaddeus Steveus arose, and with a wave of the hand, suid: "No such State as Tennessee is known tothis House," with the approval and indorse ment of that body. Reverse the picture Suppose Thaddeus Stevens to have uttered that atrocious sentence in St. Leuis in lGl. His white locks would not have shielded him from the fatal violence of an insulted patriotism. Sup Ihjbo, again, the patriotic actor to stand to-day in the House of Representatives aud connt over the stars upon our national banuer. He would bo met with only insults and derision, or a violent expulsion from their presence. Let the reader ponder these strange contrasts, and draw his own conclusions." , Echoes. .
