Absolut acquiescence in the decisions of tha mnjoriiy, the vital principle of Republics, from which Ry BlRsscr & Elaeir r From the Water-Ctire Journal. ; TKA A POSITIVK POISON. , , It maybe said perhaps, to treat of ten ta both medicine am) pniaon, is to make a distinction without a difference, eince every efficient med icine ia a poiron nf course. There is troth in the supgeation ; nevertheless, it ia morn conve nient to arrange my thoughts on the subject under f wo aeperate head. 1 - One evit?ence that tea ia poiennotta, la found in the fact that, like alcohol, etramonitim, bella dona, and many other medicines, it prottiir.ee its specific disease the tea iinratc, Thia nirt of our subject will be heal illustrated by the experiments and deductions of Mr. John Cole, distinguished member of the Royal College of Sur neons in London. Mr. Cote does not, indeed, attempt to show that every tra drinker has the lea disease; a point aa difficult to establish as that every one who uses alcohol drinks of any kind lias the drunkard's disease. All who use tea however, are on the high road to the tea disease, just as every dram drinker, and in troth every wine, cider and beer drinker, is on the road to deliri um trement. There is one thin?, moreover, which seems a little peculiar in relation to the effects of tea. Though it disturbs, moot readily, those consti tutions whose tone has been lowered from the healthy standard, by fatigue, debility, loss of blood, &.c, yet it has also the power, when ta ken a long time in excessive quantity, of. re ducing the healthy constitution to that state in which it becomes accessible to its own deleteri ous influence. The tol low in jr ia his descrip tion of the progress of the disease, in those whore systems were already prepared to be in juriously affected by it : "In a longer or a shorter time after taking the beverage, (from a few minutes to two or three hours,) an uncomfortable feeling arises in the stomach a craving, sinking emptiness which soon acquires a degreo of intensity that is almost insupportable. The hunger-like gna ingand craving are described aa being to the last degree painful to endure. The stomach being full, has no effect in preventing ita seces sion ; neither doea eating releive it. . This is often all that is felt for long time : but by de grees a fluttering, as of a bird, in the left side, is superadded; and a feeling of fulness pervades the chest, with broathless and frequent aighing. Thi fulness is more especially felt about - the clavicles, (or collar bones,) and the root of the neck, "When black tea or coffee has been taken, considerable excitement often ushers in this succession of phenomena ; the face becomes flushed, the eyes sparkle with unusual brilli ance, all the earlier effeetsof intoxication from alcohol are ob-ervnble the pulse being full and throbbing, anil considerable quickened. If green tea have been taken, the previous ex citement is less, or perhnps not at all percepti ble; tho skin soon becomes pale, the eyes be come sunken, the pulse feeble, quick and flut tering. "Whichever may have been taken, the hands and teet often become cold as marble, and bedewed with a clammy sweat. . Efforts to warm them are mndn in vain, even in the hot test weather ; a feeling of coldness and numb ness also invades the back part of the head. "Thia is the milder from of the disease, (if I msy so term it,) the one which is most common ly seen ; but occasionally a variety of aggrava ted symptoms arise. To the coldness and be numbed feeling of Ihe back nf head, thete ia ad ded formication of the scald, (a sensation aa if ants were creeping in it,) violent pain in the head, dimnesa of tho sight, unsteadiness in walking, and vertigo; and thee are accompan ied by a fluttering, feeble pulse. To the feel ing of fulness of the chest and about the clavi cles, are added threatening of suffocation, in- insensibility, and convulsions. The sufferings felt in the stomach are aggravated to violent spasms. The fluttering al the heart becomes pain, violent palpitation, or enfeebled . action, bringing on a syncope. I may add, here, that the. mind does not escape injury, but partakes of tho disorders of the body, as is seen by the tem per becoming peevish and irritable, so as to render the sufferer a torment to all about him." Who does not see, in a substance that can in duce all those mischiefs on the living system, a less severe though certain poison! Is there a possibility of mifctake ? But Mr. C brings forward a list of ten cases of disesse from tea drinking, of which the fol lowing ia en abstract. ' It should be premised, however, that except during what he calls tho peroxyams, thia distinguished surgeon was not in tha habit of giving medicine relying solely, for a cure, on total abstinence from the drinks which produced the mischief. ' Ilia first case waa that of a female, thirty- five yeara of age, who complained of great pain in the stomach after eating, with a sense of sinking and emptiness, and such feeling of faintneaa that she could hardly walk, ' followed at length by fluttering in the aide, fulneas about the clavicle, and vomiting. AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL. Sunbarjr, ftorthumterltwdl Co. The second was that of a female, forty years of age. She was just recovering from catarrhal fever, when one morning,.rieMBking her break fast, was eeixed wiiVsymptom similar to those already mcfttkmerf, except the vomiting. It sppeaci,Tn inquiry, that her tea that morning, (it was black tea,) had been made stronger than usual, and that she had also drank more than was cuetomary with her. Ilia third case was that nf a female thirty years of sge, who had long been in the use of very strong green tea, in large quantity. For a year before Mr. C. was Called, she had been subject to violent spasms of the stomach, which had at length become so freqnent and severe, that the slightest exertion, even a little walk ing, was sufficient to bring them on. When Mr. C. arrived she wss suffering from spasms of usual violence. She had likewise the other usual symptoms of ten disease. On inquiry, he wss fully mtirfied 'that all the tro-ible, in this case, was thf) rffVel of tea. She was directed to abstain from It; and for several weeks had ho return nf the spasms, nor other symptom of disease. Hut one day, on ' ventu ing upon a single cup of her favorite beverage, she had a slight attack of her. old complaint. She resumed her abstinence, and remained well. The fourth case was another female, thirty years old. She had the usual symptoms of tes disesse, or tea poison, with the usual nervous suffering. The tea she had used was green tea. She had been in the use of digitalis and colclii um a fortnight, with no other effect than to add to her sufferings, as might have been expected from the addition of two more poisons to the one which was already undermining her const i tion. She abstained from tea, and in three days recovered. The fifth case was that of a female, twen'y- five years of age, famoua in her profession of tea drinking. Mr. C prohibited tea as usual ; but was surprised to find, after having made hie daily visit fur a week or so, she was no bet ter. On a more rigid search, he found her still indulging herself clandestinely. She complied at length, with his prohibition, and in a few days was well. Case s xth was that of an author and parlia mentary reporter, of middle age. He waa a green tea drinker sometimes using it stronger as his common drink, for five or six hours to gether, to keep up his mental strength. He had become so enslaved, that two or three times a week, he was found lying in a state of insen sibility on the floor A middle-aged mother was the seventh Sh had been subject for some time to occasional fits of insensibility, which occurred in the even ing. one nau used D'ack tea. twice a any. 'which Mr. C, suspecting to be the came of I mischief, forbade her, and she quickly recover ed. I should have ssid thst she had taken the strongest medicines without success. A shop keeper, forty years of ngp, is next mentioned. He wss not only a great tea drink er, but also a coffee drinker. His head was more affected than that of the others. To total j abstinence from every drink birt water, was ad ded, in thia case, for ten days, a little valerian. The ninth case was that of a young man of twenty-two a great drunkard, even at this early age, on black tea. . In addition to tho other symptoms of disease, he was at length at tacked with bleeding at the nose. He was cu red in tbe urual manner, in a very short time. The last case mentioned ia that of a female a most devoted slave of the teapot. She had long been a sufferer, but would not abandon the cause nf her suffering, till a severe cough, with a bloody expectoration, compelled her to doit. Mr. C. cencludes his remarks by observing "I could extend the number of cases en as to form a body of evidence which it would bedit ficnlt to resist Those I have brought forward are, I think, sufficient to excite considerable doubt aa to the harmless qualities of. The cups that cheer but not inebriate.' Mlf it be true,' he adds, 'that the continued disturbance of the function of an organ wi'l in duce change of structure, what are we to ex pect from the use of tra twice a day, when it deranges the function of the heart for three or four hour, alter each time of its being taken? If the answer be that it may be expected to produce some structural disease, then there arises this other question, Msy not the grea ter prevalence of catdiac (or heart) disease, of late years, have been consiuggably influenced by the increased consumption of tea and cot fee V ' ; ' ";' But Mr, Cole ia not the only individual who haa auspected tea of containing poison. Dis tinguished men of both hemispheres have en tertained the same suspicions ; and several have verified them by experiment. "As early aa 1767," says Mr. Graham', in bia Lectures oa tbe Science of Human Life, "Dr. Smith, of Edinburg, demoosteted, by a aeries of careful experiments, thst aa infusion oi green lea haa the same effect as henbane, tobacco, cicuta, &c, on the living tissues ot the animal there is no appeal but to force, the vital principle and Pa.

Refore the messenger returned, however, Mr. McConnell had locked hia door, inflicted two cuta around hia abdomen, long, but not deep, and several arnund the throat, severing, as i. supposed, the jugular vein. After an hour and a half bad elapsed, one of the family went to hia room door, and finding it still locked, looked through a glass over it, when the dead body of tbe unhappy man was seen lying on the floor. To all appearance he must have died instantly.

It hss been ascertained thst the year 1842 was the most unfavorable in France : and where ono accident occurred to 25000 traveller, in 1844 only one accident ic cur red to 1.321 .000 travellers. In England, it IHW, there was one accident to tii.ts.iti; in IS 13. one to GO .000. This is favorable to France From 1811 to 1815, there were 1057 scci dents in England, from which 300 persons di ed.

An officer in tho Kentucky Cavalry Regi- ment, now on ita wny tlirotiffh Arkamma to Mexico, gives the following description of the celebrnted Hot Springs near Little Rock, in Arkansas; With some eight or ten officers of the regi- ntent f srriv.,1 at this ooint last ninhi. .i.i. miles rom Little Rock, and twenty tmm .,. road, and I now can seo about th third nJ .i.va of about thirly rudely constructed log and board htioses. The mounts ins run nearly east and west, nnd close in at the northern one the hou ses are built, whito before them, sweeping the bsse of the other mountain, runs a rivulet as clear as crystal, of 75 degrees temperature be fore snd 110 degrees after its intermixture with the water from the springe. The springs eighty-four in number, sre confined to the southern motintsin, and gush its side from the base a hundred yards up. The greatest heat of any which I measured. (and there is none hot tei) was 149 degree, the least ,110 degrees. Their temperature ranges generally from 135 to 145degrees. The" water is strongly impreg nated with lime, as is seen by the incrustations of carbonate of lime formed as it flows alonr : with this exception it must bo very pure. Though so hot thst one hss to drink it by small mniiihfuls, it is very paltsble, quickly assusges thirst, siid never nauseates! snd, the more strsngc, when s little' salt and peper are added tastes very much like chicken broth. Here is food for r flection: the philopher msy come and analize the water, note the composition of the rock, soil, snd detritus, and then make many uncertain theories to account for the eternal fire that boils the caldron from which issues the many streams. The mountsin is composed of very porous liinstone,' and strikes one aa ha ving once been fuxed and heaved up a molten mass, to take whatever shspo its weight snd pliability might give it, whilo the earth, in the interstices of its projections, appears as if charred by a great heat.

Some forty or fify invalids are now hers, most of them sfferted with rheumatism and mercurial complaints, in which disease tho ns tonishing efficacy of the baths is discernible. I see several who art ived a tew weeks ago, so heplrs, crocked, and deformed that they had to be lifted as inanimate beings, now walking with agility. There are others who had taken a great dral of mercury, and whose systems were not cleansed of it until they bathed here some weeks, when a profuse salivation occur ring, and continuing from two to four or six weeks, every vestige of the disease wss remov ed. Tho baths sre thirty steps from the rooms; one of vapor, snd another by shower from a s'reani an inch in diameter, snd falling ten or fifteen teet, slwsys being under the same roof. The vapor bath is made by pulling an air-tight room over a spring, protecting the feet by trel- li-i work ; their temperature is from 140 to 130 degrees. I he bather generally first lets the spout pour upon him, then goes to the vapor tail), and remains from ten to twenty minutes, returns to the spout, which washes him off, then wipes dry and dresses, repeating the last in a half hour, on seenunt of the clothe becoming saturated with perspiration. The bath ia very enervating, ami it require discretion to govern ait individual who wishes to indulge in it; it is quickly futal to consumptives. Many curiosities and abundance of game are to be found in the neighborhood to occupy the attention of the naturalist and hunter.

Appestranees flr Death. It frequently happens that the features of the desd retain their entire form and individual likeness for many years after their burial. Ex perience, however, has proved, that after expo sure to the air for some minutes dust returns to dust again. The following circumstances occurred at the disentermentof the body of Ro bert Burns, the poet, sometime in '.he year 1815, lor the purpose of its being entombed beneath a splendid monument. A report having been spread that the princi pal coffin waa made of oak, a hope was entertai ned that it would be possible to transport it from the north to the east comer of St M ichncls, without opening it, or disturbing I Ik ?cred de posit it contained. Rut this hope proved falla cious. On testing the coffin, it was found to bo composed of the ordinary materishj and ready to yield at the slightest pressure ; and upon the lid being removed, a spectacle was presented, which, considering the feme of t' mighty dead, has rarely been witnessed by a single human being. There lay the remains of the great po et, to appearance nearly entire, and retaining varione traces of vitality, or rather exhibiting1 the features of one who had bttt recently sunk into the sleep of death the lordly forehead, arched and high, and the teeth perfectly firm and white. The scene was so imposing W most of the workn.en stood bare and uncovered. as did Dr. Gregory at the exhumation of the hero of Bannockburn, and at the same time felt their frames thrilling with some undefinable e motion, as they gazed on theashesof him whose fame is as the word itself. But the effect wan momentary ; for when they proceeded to insert a shell or case below the coffin, the heud separa ted from the trunk, and the whole body, with the exception ot the bones, crumbled into dust. Lord Nugent, on opening the coffin, contai ning the body of John Hampden, found it per fect, after a burial of two hundred years ; evert his features were preserved. His hair of a ra ven blackness, came off at the touch of the hand.' and then was discovered an infinite number of. little red worms of great activity, p'aying nporr' the cranium. No insects were found on other parts of the body, aa if the brain contained a li ving principle, which was engendered by its own corruption. It is a fact not extensively known that whet the body of General Wayne, which hnd been buried at Presqu'tle, Erie, Pa., in 1797, wa disinterred forty years afterwards, for the pur pose of its being removed to Chester county.
