George Peabody the Alien.
From the Philadelphia Gazette.
In view of the seizure by theCrown
of certain property of Mr. Peabody
under the alien laws, it becomes a
matter of curiosity, ax least, to know
what the rights and disabilities of an
alien are under the English law.
In the olden time an alien had,
practically, no rights, and all disa
bilities. Now the rigor of those old
days is relaxed ; but not as much as
civilization, Christianity anu com
mon intelligence demand.
By the express provisions or 7 and
8 Vict., c. 66.s. 4, and alien may take
and hold every species of personal
property, except chattels real, as ral
ly as if he were a natural born sub
ject, ineludiug those acquired by
testamentary dispositions, ne may
be executor or administrator and, as
to personal property, "may be a
trustee, like anybody else."
The Incapacity of aliens now con
sists mainly in three things :
They are incapable or any politi
cal rights, including that of holding
any office of trust, or becoming a
member of the Privy Council, or of
They cannot hold landed estate ex
cept tor a term nor exceeding iwen
ty-one years.
They cannot own jtsritisn snips.
There are. also, in the same stat
ute, regulations by which an alien
may become entitled to. all the rights
and capacities of a natural born sub
ject, except the capacities before nam

This last provision effects the

Curvature of the Spine.

As we may deform our spines by
unnatural attitudes, and by many
the absurd practices of civilized life,

cises and employments. TDeboutnern
negroes, ana other races, wnicn carry
heavy hardens on their heads, are
proverbially erect, inespinai mus

counteracting the natural tendency
of the spine to curve forward. Vari

al causes of deformity, from pressure
applied to the chest, aremore in need
of supervision in this respect.
It is not necessary to carry heavy
burdens on the head to correct the
tendency to curvature ; a very little
weight, even a small bag of beans,
anything which requires attention
and muscular effort to retain in posi
tion, Is enough. j j
-. When parents, then, see a child
becoming round-shouldered, as it
called, let them not encase the chest
in corsets, or support tne spine

growth in an abnormal direction
as "just as the twig Is bent is the
tree inclined," so the spine in
young will curve forward or later
ally, as bad positions at the desks,
in the chair, in the bed, at the sewing-table,
or in daily sports and
avocations, may determine.
Add to these causes the absurd
modes of dressing children, the man

injudicious tossing and j urn pings
