Let u-? see what effect the air
i?as on the dark fl aul which is constant
ly ci?ut>iitg through the veins. Every
one knows that there are two sets of
blood vessels in the human system, one
M?t containing blight, red blood; and
the othet filled with blood of a darker,
hue. Let ua pry into the matter, and
see what we can learn by tracing the
blood from place to place in the system.
We will commence at the herfrt'. This j
is divided into two divisions, and the;
blood in one side is a dark, and in the;
other a bright red. The pure, bright
blood is constantly passing from thc|
left side of the hcait into a large artery
which conveys it into branches that be
come smaller and smaller as they ap
proach the surface of tire skin, till they 1
grow too small for the nuked eye to
sec. As this pure blood flows along
from place to place in til** system it de
posited particles of matter wherever
I hey are newded and thus supplies the
place of woin out atoms, and also,
strengthens and enlarges the various
parts 11 f the human finme. By the time
it rearhea the extremities of the arter
ies, it has lost its bright red odor. and
here by some wise anatnfement i' is
conveyed into the tiny branches of the
veins to be started back towards the
bea ?. As i? proceeds on it* course, the
numerous veins uni'e, firming larger
?and laiger ones; until one large stem
takes it to the right side of the heart.
From the right side of the heart it ia
conveyed to the lungs or lights, and,
here, by meanB of thousands of liitlu
winding branches, it is brought very
near the air we draw into the lungs by
breathing, twilling separating the blood
from the air hut a very thin film. If the
air we are breathing i.? pure, thit is if
it has tint been hreathud bffere, sr..I is
rot tainted with anything unwholesome;
end if them be nothing compresningthe
waist thai will prevent a sufficient quan
tity being diswn in, the blood in instant
ly changed in color from tbii dark vein
otis to the blight arterial hue; and re
turns to the left eidtf fit' the heart every
way qualified t" cariy a flush of health
nod beauty to tlie ekin oti its next visit
there. From this imperfect glance at
the circu'ttiinu ?f lbs Mood, may be
learned the vast impoitance of well de
veloped lungs lo the health mid hnppi
ties* "f individuals. The lungs lire thu
uatuial ajeni* i>y which the Mood ia
purified, and the larger they aie, the su
rer i? t lie ptnspeet of life and lu-altli to
iheii pus/e-soi, Moiheis, will you not
remember this when tilling dresses (or
your li'tle giils. mid lefiaitt from the
murderous practice of Hying to con
tract orlenseti lint sizes of their waists.
If their clothes fit so that they cannot
take in a good, long breath, why then
the blood, after passing into the lungs
and Keeking its purifier ill vain, returns
dark colored ami unhealthy to ail parts
of ihe system, and lavs the foundation
for years of tufieiing. There is much
complaint about consumption; but when
I look around I wonder that so many es
cape it aa do. Many females are never
allowed, from the cradle to the grave,
to take in one long breath of good fiosh
sir. Ana *,vhnt so tits coseequcacol
Why, before marriage they are fit for

forwards are worth iiulhing but to trans

A great sensation in produced when one
commits suicide. Hut which in worse,
murder committed in an instant, or mur
der wrought by slow degrees* Mur
der that deprives but one person of life,
or murder thai involves self and ail pos
terity iirita tortures? There are mote
untimely deaths from contracting the
chest and breathing confined air than
from oil other sources together. It
should be remembered heie, that air
once breathed is unfit to breathe again.
In older to make this plain, I will sav
that pure atmospheric air is composed
of two gasses called nitrogen and oxy
gen. By some stramje process, about
the operation of which scientific writers
disagree, the air in the lungs loses its
natural qualities, and when thrown out.
i.t found to be carbonic acid gat-s which
is a deadly p?M?n. This shows the im
portance of admitting freslhair frequent
ly into all of our apartments ; and the
necessity of avoiding the use of low,
tight rooms for bleeping or sitting rooms
In cast's of fevers, ire., much harm ie
ciftou done lo patient* through fear of
fiesh air. when at the satne time it is of
more real importance than medicine.
A word here about school rooms. This
point deserves particular attention in
this region at the present time. Hav
ing been accustomed to round log, pa
per-windowed, puncheon-floured, open
School-houses, in their young days, pa*
rents remember their sufferings, and
seem determined in many places at least
to have their children morecomfurtably
situated, and so tlioy build frame houses,
piaster them inside, make the doors and
windows air tight, have the ceiling low,
arid then finish by placing a stove in the
centre. In a room so constructed, per
haps not more than 16 feet square, be
tween thirty and forty children aro con
fmod from eight in tlio morning till four
in the evening, with not more than an
hour and a-hulfof recess; and during
this time, the teacher (as ignorant very
frequently of Physiology and Chemis
try as his youngest pupil) keeps tho
door closed for fear of lettiuj* in some
cold air ! What effect can this warm,
and a hundred times rehieathed air
have on the blood of those poor intio
cent sufleiers ? No wonder they nestle
and screw from side to side. No won
der they pant for freedom, and in their
anxiety for noontime, forget the spelling
and grammar. And no wonder that
many of them turn pale, and sicken
and die before the return of the next
winter session. A remark about cloth
ing and this article will be finished.
We have seen why clothing should ho
worn loose. Now let us see why i:
should be light. The whole surface of
the body is covered with minute pores
which perform a kind of respiration by
throwing off corrupt, unwholesome hu
mors, nnd also absorbing a poition of
atmospheric air. A great deal depends
on tho proper action of these tiny pores.
If too much clothing is worn the air
cannot pepetrate it so as to carry off
the moisture from tho surface, and this
being retained, clogs the outlets of the
skin and predisposes to disease. Again,
if too little clothing is worn tho perspi
ration i*upt to bo checked, and this will
prove injurious, so'in at parents should
avoid the exUtune'fflJcither case, and re
member at all times, to consult health
and confer! in preference to folly and
fashion. SEBA.

AN ELECTION DAY IN ILLINOIS,
Last Tuesday (Nov. 8) was the day
set apart for the election of officers to
pieside over the destinies of Gallatin
county, Illinois?County Judge, Clork,
Commissioner, Constable, &c. were to
be chosen.
Tho morning was beautiful in the ex
treme. The sun streaming forth, re
flecting beauty upon tho tranquil bosom
of the majestic Ohio. The town (Shaw
neetown) wearing an aspect of unusual
activity?Merchants industriously en
gaged making ready for the day'scales,
Hotel and Grog-shop kcopers busily
engaged cleansing and replenishing
empty decanters; chuckling over tho
certainty of doing a brisk business to
day. The E!ec:icn diy ? The day of
days! Candidates innumerable running
fn m gmg-t-hop in giog-sliop, depositing
in earli 11 few dimes to piociue "plain
tv/iukey," all foi the benefit of lh*-ir |
ileal fiit'iiild of Gallatin county, and in
return fnr this extreme liberality and
kiudne*9, receive the support (if the
" sovereigns " at the pulls. This whis
key plot acted like a chann as the sc- .
quel will show.
9 o'clock, A. M. Polls open. 1 !>??,
inq a stranger, took my aland close l?y,
with my pencil in bund, diligently jot
ting down all that attracted my parlicu- j
lar attention.
I 10 o'clock, A. M.?Counting number
i of drunk men who came to the polls to
I vote.
I 11 o'clock, A. M.?Counted 25?the
number increasing rapidly. I find it
impossible to keep count. Give it up
11 i.?Attempted to count the number
of candidates?a task equally fruitless.
Give if up.
2 o'clock, P. M.?Returned from din
ner. Candidates xjietiking?all through '
save Mr. B., candidate for Judge?a tall !
man, full six fret high, square built, an >
iron visage, showing marks of days of j
toil and hardships, He is evidently
proud of his present profession (Flat;
Boat Pilot) and in blessed with plenty
of talk, native wit, and common educa* j
tion. Judge from his address, which I
give in part. Ho aiose amid cheers, !
and proceeded?
Brother Farmers and Townsmen: Old ;
Ben, the Com Boat Pilot, is, you all!
know, a candidate for County Judge.? j
You all know Old Ben, and know'd mei
long. | Voice ? Go it Ben."] I were
raised amongst yees; always were with
ye except when I was down with bouts.
I never axed you for office before in my
life, but now I do, and I ux you to lect j
me. ["I'll plump for you, old Hoss,i
(hie) for you treated mote than them
other fel(hic)ler candidatea,"?tammered i
a voico evidently under the influence of!
i Ben's liberality.] I'll make as good a
Judge as Mike will. I guess Old (
B??n known eorce things. It would he
bo a pretty thing if I didn't, for I've run i
fifty boats to New Orleans, and never
' lost but two, and that wasn't my fault;!
: indeed it warnt feller citizens. [Voices
i 'Go it old feller, you're ahead,old hossl'j
' 'Hurrah fur Bun !' 'three cheers for old
?Ben!' 'Drink with u.% Ben!'] And*
Ben was haul?*d from the htuml, and
anon disappeared in a Coffee house, i
haid by, amid cheers of his numerous
admirers. Thus ended Ben's speech,!
much ti> my regret, a3 I was anxious to
hear liim through.
Half j?ast 4 o'clock, P. M. Votes all
pol led -candidates scarce?horse-racing
wre^flinx* a 'ew fights, now in pro
gress. Doggery-keepers operating with
front doors closed. No E-istitcc for any
one unless ho cun climb a fence. ant!
find the hack door.
Half past 5?Fighting all over?no*
i body hurt, nobody Killed, snvc a few
bloody noses, caused by o Utile too much
pure essence of corn, which brought
them in contact with the pavement.?
AH that can navigate are climbing (he
fence, or preparing to leave town.
Among the goodly number climbing
: or endeavoring to climb the fence, I no*
ticed quite a genteelly dressed young
: man, who by repeated efforts had suc
ceeded in straddling it, and was exult
ing over his good luck by singing the
: popular air, "Away down on do Sawnee
j river"?but ere he bad finished the cho
rus, pure essence capsized him, and ho
came, with a tremendous ctash to the
ground. I wan certain he was much
i hurt; but to my surprise ho was not.? j
I He consoled himself by looking around !
j and thanking good fortune that he fell j
I on the whiskey nido.
I Night has closed in ?all is still and j
quiet save a growl or a gtunt from some
i poor fellow lying in the gutter, or still I
loth to let him go, young and vigorous,'
| whiskey has lied him to tho fence. j
? 1 return to my quarter*, fully satisfied!
j that h trtnperuucu reformation is need
ledin Gallatin county. Illinois. An am
! pie field is open for a Gough, or a VVil
jliains, or our own Willnf to work and
I do good. And ac?in judging from what
II have seen to-day, they want Law in
j Gallatin county, as fighting, drinking,
1 and horse racing went on without res
traint. But perhaps there is a clause in
; their present code of laws to permit a
! man to do as pleases him to-day?the
Jay of days?tho Election day in Illi.

MISCHIEF MAKERS.
Oil! could there in this world be found
Some little spot of happy ground,
Without the village tattling!
IIow doubly blot that *pot would be,
Where all might dwell in liberty,
Free from the Litter misery
Of gossip*' eudlcss prattling!
If such a spot were really known,
Dame Peace might claim it as htr own,
And in it she might fix her throne,
Forever and forever;
There like a queen might reign and live,
While every one would soon forgive
The little alight* they might receive,
And be offended never.
?Tis mischief-makers that remoro
Far from our hearts the warmth of love,
And lead us all to disapprove
What given another pleasure;
They seem to take one's part?but when
They've heard our cares unkindly, theu
They soon retail thern o'er again,
Mixed up with poisonous measure.
And then they've such a cunning way
Of telling ilUmeant tales?they say
" Don't cvir mention it, I pray,
I would not tell another
Straight to your neighbor* th?*n they go,
Narrating every thing they know;
And break the peace of high and low,
Wife, husband, friend and brother.
Oh! that the mischicf-making crcw,
Were all reduced to one or two,
And they were painted r?:d or blue,
That every one might know them ;
Then would our villagers forget
To r.ige and quarrel, fume and fret,
And fall into an angry pet,
With things so much below them.
For 'tis a sad, degrading part,
To make another's bosom smart,
And plant a dagger in the heart
We ought to love and cherish !
Then let us evermore be found
In quictncuH with all around,
While friendship, joy and peace abound,
And angry feelings perish.
GO AHEAD!
Go ahead- and do not tarry,
Nought is gained by landing htill;
What though you at times miscarry,
Let not /cars your bosom fill.
Search the causes of your errors,
Gather wisdom from the past,
To the winds give all the terrors,
And you'll get ahea ut lust.
Co ahead?in useful doing:*,
Letour motto be u I'll try
lie who ever despairing,
Bankrupt hearts and hopes arc nigh.
What though you and wealth are strangers
| Onward, onward be your aim,
And those real or foic icd dangers
j Swon you'll put to flight or shame.
Go ahead?the world reforming,
j In civil, moral, freedom's name;
.?ill those forts and cutpoKta storming,
Which your enemies may claim.
\ icld no bulwark, take no quarter,
j Compromise no cheriiln d right,
Freedom's treakuree never barter,
j Hold them firm with all your might.
Go ahead then?don't defer it,
Life's .,hort span soon flits away;
, If y. u'd finish aught of merit
You must to your task to-day.
1 Set the bail in instnnt motion,
j Keep it going?strain each norve?
I Nor doubt that ultimate promotion
, Will yield the laurels you deserve.
