Mr. Gladstone seems to have
recovered his usual health, and ho
may again appear on the stage as
the Liberal leader in England,
which few thought ho would ever
be able again to undertake. He is
certainly one of the most remark

would have the courage to act
as leader of the great English

A correspondent, on the first
page, handles the subject of tobacco"
without gloves. Tobacco is like
some other : articles of daily use,
such as coffee, tea, beers, etc., the
use of which a few centuries ago
was confined to a very limited
number of persons, and has now
become almost universal. Coffee
is injurious to some, tea and beer to
others, and tobacco to far the larger
number; but the evil attending
the use of each of theso luxuries
arises more from the abuso of them
than the simple use. When either
is found to be injurious to health,
its use should bo abandoned. But
poor humanity is too often more
ready to gratify its tastes and
pleasures than to practice rules of
health. ".Nicotine" has unques
tionably the right in the matter of
health, but to accomplish a refor
mation in the use and abuso of
tobacco will require more than
