Are Newlns; Mnchlnes Healthy T The London Lancnt says: " Some few years ago' one of the London hospital pbyaiciatis called attentiou ta the fact wliich had come under his notice re peatedly among the out patients under bis care, that the use of the sewing ma chine was injurious; to the health of those who habitually employed it for many hours together. The patients suflered from nervous debility and other symptoms referable to its employment, and admitted that the constant ex ertion wliich necessarily occurred in using heavy double actioned machines bad an exciting and exhausting effect upon them. These statements were somewhat strongly denied at the time, but we think the almost universal adop tion of hand-worked machines in family life since the date shows that there waa a pretty general feeling among the profession, and probably the public, too, that the exercise required for young ladies in order to work the treadle machine was not calculated to improve their health. Facta which have recently cotne to our knowledge show that tl;o evil whs no imaginary one, and that many workers at the sewing machine or machines of a similar character do Buf fer very materially in their health. One of the heaviest forms of machines is, we believe, that employed" in "braiding," and young women working in this de partment have suffered very materially, and have been compelled to discontinue the employment. But the distress is not confined to one class of employes; it seems to affect pretty generally all those who use the feet alteri.ately as the mo tive power of their machinery. If the workers themselves or their immediate supervisors were to speak -out, there would, we believe, be abundant evi dence found that "machining" is a most exhaustive employment, and one which gradually breaks down the health. When it is considered how great the employment of aewing and allied machinery by female opera tives is, and that many city houseB have dozens of them in their establishments, it is obvious that the evil we have re ferred to is not a slight one. We would be liifi Jast to interfere with the female labor markei, jjlways overcrowded as it is with needy eauiBire;3es, but it is not unreasonable to ask whether in the case of iurse establishments employing dozens or ejre.n hundreds ol machines, it would not be poaeibje to adopt steam as the motive power, ana to taiam me ie nialeuftnd only as the guide of the mo, chine thu pft in motion. If a steam engine con (liiy B?anT spinning ma chines or looms, one doe. ct't fancy there could be much difliculty in givi;ig the necessary motion to sewing or braiding machines, the work cf which is not one whit mor intricate. Guillotined Kplallon After iweniy icar. On the 9th of November the p?ople of La Chenette, in te French Department of La Gironde, witnessed the execution of Valentine Fouloir, for the murder af his sister Annie Marie Fouloir, killed in lrii. Fouloir lived with her at La Che nette for tventy-six years. Quite weal thy, she hd bi'c envied by him, as he was of dissipated habit,,. )ne day, be ing under the infiuance of liijo he best her until she seemed dead, anii hat mnnev and unci - - - valuables iui found in the house, he ran away to Soutti America, nis victim, i.tLl boTnr eki.i.-intr wko her assassin was.

At the same time Fouloir's wife uttered a terrible shriek and fainted away. The tragedy was over. Till) ISLES OF THE BLEST. Lands Which White Man's Foot Ha Never Trod. From the London Times. I The cruisers engaged in watching the exportation of laborers from islands of the South Pacilio ocean fell in witii strange places und strange peoplu. At New Ilauover, Capt. Simpson, of her majesty's ship Blanche, found men and women very much in a state of nature ; he thinks that they had never before been visited by white men. They were ignorant of the use of tobacco, and any old pieces of paper were taken by them in preicrence to the usual trade articles. Both men and women came along in great numbers, and showed no fear. They bad little or nothing for barter, except spears. Ihey appealed y good humored, but are arrant thieves. A party of officers landed, and except thai their pockets were picked, were in no way molested. Capt. Simpson, when off the cftast of New Britain, took an opportunity of perpetuating his name and that of his ship. Ee fouud two spacious bays or harbors with good an chorage, land locked, and sheltered from all winds. One, which he has called Blanche bay, has been formed by the upheaving of three vo'canio moun tains called the Mother and Daughters; the lava poured down in past Res has formed two points which he mentions at Point Sulphur and Point Bridges. Simpson Harbor, about five milei long and three wide, lies between Point Pleasant and the main land; be believes there is space, with from twenty to twenty-five fathoms of water, for the navies of the world to anchor in. About a mile south from Point Bridges, with deep water round them, are two remarkable sand-stone rocks, both standing on the same baBe, which is about a quarter of a mile in circum ference, and edged wish coral, the gap betwecu them being covered by a lew feet of water. The largest of these rocks is sixty or seventy yards in cir cumference, and rises perpendicularly to a bight of nearly two hundred feet, and though there is not a vestige of soil upon it, stunted trees cling here and there to its perpendicular side, and on the small platform at its base there are a few cocoanut trees. But the most re markable thing that is clustered on the narrow ledge . which surrounds these rocks and which is partly under water, is a village containing about two hundred inhabitants, who evidently support themselves by fishing. Many of these houses are built in the water on piles. Tney had numerous cunoes moored around them. Capt. Simpson has named those rocks the Beehives. They form an additional protection to Simpson Harbor, lie found in the Ni garik group of islands only one inhabit ed, and the people have a short history. There are about a hundred of them, and uo less than sixty are children. The people flay that about forty years ago a captain frotn Sydney took the island and destroyed the inhabitants, or nearly every soul ; some yeurs after that a man named faddy camewitb some natives ot Ponope island and settled there, claim ing the island as his own, and the pop ulation has since rapidly increased. What became of Paddy is not stated. Is Beer a Healthy Beverage ? From the Cincinnati Gazette. 'lhe plea put iu tor the German na tionnl drink is that it is not only harm less, but also decidedly healthy. Beer brewers, we are to. ouhlic benefac tor-t, for they supply the people with a mildly stimulating and pleasant drink, which is destined at no very distant day to supplant and drive from the country whisky and all the other distilled liquors which are producing such an amount of drunkenness and woe in the land. In deed, we are assured that beer is even an element of morality and honesty, and that when once the American peo ple generally will patronize the beer sa loons on Sunday instead of Puritanic churches, the millennium of morality and honesty will have come. Let but the time come when all shall worship at the shrine of Crambrinus, and there will be no more salary grubbing, no more Credit Mobilier, no mure ring swindling, nor any of the thousand an,d one forms of public and private robbery now in yogu.e. We have bo disposition, at present t least, to dispel the delightful vision thus conjured up by the philosophic German mind, but will only record the fact, re cently brought tq light in Germany, ikat beer there is no longer the simple j-jice of iiftrley, spiced with hops, which it tormer.' was, aim wmuu iuaujr m their simplicity still believe it to be. Like m'thins eUo, the art of b,eer brewing bas Ucn making progress, and the old fogy notlou that brley aqd hojis Jhall constitute the only ingredients of the beverage is exploded. Tba barley part has been, to a great extent, super ceded for years by West India molasses, sugar of starch and similar substances, Vhi"b, by the decomposition of the fusil eii'ct(uji44 t.-Prein. by the process of fermentation, do c6. Cin,riut2 very ma terially to the healthful aaas' of i,i.er. Now, to crown all, the discovery is made that the seed of the extremely foi'onous colchicum antomale is largely used aa a pMitute for hops in the manufacture oFbcer. Vlt zf.twe up on which this charge againat the tjerwuu brewers is founded may be summed up tiiu; ; Id the first place, chemical ex periments i-te shown that it is possible to use the ailalmd c colchicum (colchi tiny jn place of the titter Iricciple of the hop. 'then, again, the conauttpUgn of colchicam has latterly iscreased in, a most inexplicable manner. Dr. A. Spies, of Frankfort, calls attention to the fact that the manufacture of beer has in- creouj ftnen fold within the last few decades, sytms ths orjantity of hops raised has remained the sa:o. This fact of itself points with unerring Cer tainty to the adoption of a substitute in tls:eof the hop, and the strong proba J'dj in is the poisonous calchi- cin, a decoction of koLLifum seed, that is largely used as such substitute. The quantity of colchicum seed used fir medicinal purpose is so small that It' ktcl? enters into tbe account. Twenty bundrtS s,ei;ht of the seed would sutlice to produce alt the bCcb; cum nsed lor that purpose in commerce. Lmi ;,'ll is needed for the balance of the folfhinln pre,,t,-jt'ons, so that we do not overstate fht case DeU 70 say that sixty hundred weight would supply all the Jjsiands of commerce, so far as the medicinal j.rr-'arations are concarsed. Ten years ago the eviction teed could bi procured at cost of two or three kreutxenrs (one and a haif cr two cental per pound, and frequently thot who bad gathered it were sent away by the drug gists because a few pounds sufficed to supply the demand. At present colchi cum seed is quoted at tbirty-nve to thirty-six kreutzers por pound in the price currents: and in spite of this high price a wol! known firm, which about two years iu'o l.ad occasion for a larger quautity. i;ou!d not get it because the drug had in some inexplicable manner vanished from the trade. Latterly the consumption of coicMcsin seed has increased in so remarkable a manner as to attract the attention of tbn authorities of the Grand Ducby of Ilesse ; it has even been ascertained that the gafbering of this seed has grown into a regular business in various parts of the UeBsian and Bavarian Odenwald. Ac cording to an tfticia! communication, an Upper Hessian burgomaster inquired of the authorities what it any tax tho peo ple would be required to pay, who should gather the colchicum seed tor the brew ers. The gendarmes brigade of Neu stadt gave information to the authorities that in the neighboring village of Sand bach people had been requested by the towa crier to gather colchicum seed, and the gendarme who gave the inform ation had been told upon inquiry that the seed was to be gathered for the beer brewers. Upon the strength of this information the authorities instituted investigation, by whic',' it was ascertained that the gathering of colchicum seed, which was formerly carried on onlv by the children of poor parents, had become a lucrative Bource of revenue for grown persons At the railwa' station of Dieburg alone 20,000 pounds of this seed was shinned. and a single broker, R,, is said to have shipped eighty hundred weight, a quan tity which, as we remarked above, whs formerly amply sufficient to coverall the demands of the trade. The use ot colchicum seed in the adul teration of beer, therefore, would seem to be proved beyond the poraibilily of a doubt. " If they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?" If such be tbe case in Germany, what may not be expected of brewers in America? Mr-rahnl de MacMahon. The Paris Sport gives the following particulars concerning Marshal de Mac Mahon : "Grand Seigneur by right of birth ! Marshal of France by right of conquest ! President of the lltepublic by devoted ness! His nnme is popular and his person will be legendary I About half a century ago an old Count do MacMa hon inhabited toe Chateau of Saint Max, which is still seen at about a quarter of a league from Nancy on the road to Marsal. The house, surmounted by a lofty roof, is half concealed by trees, and situated halfway up a hill, it overlooks the ancient capital of Lorraine. The Count died in this sort of castle. Having three nephews, he bequeathed (o the eld est his domains, to the second his mova ble property, and to the third, as sole leg acy, an old family sword, half eaten up with rust. The disinherited nephew wan Patrick de MacMahon, now Marshal of France end Presidentof the Republic. Such Frenchmen as have had the afflic tion to revisit the conquered portion cf the country, and of pausing, full of emo tion, on the buttle field of Keichshoffen, may have observed the great homage paid to the Marshal . by his ene mies. To a solitary tree, which was on the day of combat a mark for the Ger man artillery, is attached a placard on which are read these words: " ' Here Marshal de MacMahon main tained himself during the battle. All persons are forbidden to touch this tree, lis branches or its leaves. "This inscription, pious in thought and simple in form, is perhaps tbe most glorious trophy of the President. The valor of the koldier dominates his de feat, and the victors bowed themselves to the vanquished. ' then adverting to tbe private habits ot the Marshal, onr cotemporary says: lhe l'nke de Magenta shoots and rides as if ht were only twenty-five years of age; and probabiy the active life which he leads has prolonged his vigor beyond the ordinary limits. One of the salient features of his character is an excessive modesly; the hero, so intrenid under tire, appears somewhat timid in a drawing-room, but that quality is not without its cbarin, for gentleness, com bined with force, renders his prestige all the greater. Marshal de MacMahon has borne arms and command under five dif ferent governments without betraying one of them, for the simple reason that he has never served anything hut hi country." X new method of killing horned cat tle has been introduced in Europe. which, it is sail, lareiy reduces the possibility of inflicting unnecessary tor ture upon the animals. An iron mask, like a continuous blinker, is placed on the bullock's head, so arranged as to close tbe animal's vision, and to make a hole or socket in the middle of the mask corresponding to the spot in the 6ii,lr sf f" forehead whereon a blow immediately" euuses insensiDility. A hollow nail of peculiar form, made 16 fit the socket, and having a large head, is then readily slipped in its place, and a single blow of very moderate strength anvts ir.3;.-.r:t!y hme, and causes dentil too rapidly fo allow oi any suB'es iug. .
