The following is an extract of an ad dress on Temperance lately delivered nt Delta Coahoma county, by Dr. W. M. Drown, furnished us by the polite ness of a correspondent at that place. Dr.'IJrown Is a man of remarkable sood sense, and, possessed of a fund of infor mation, knows how to reach the heart with the flowers of Iihetoric or the ar" tillcry of Logic. We would gladly have given it in full length. Here is t!n? r.xiract,"--""-" ' -' - But I will not in sult the intelligence of this audience by witcnnj; into an elaborate argument to prme that inkMnperanrvi is an evil. 1 would as soon attempt lo prove by ar gument, that th sun shines at noon-day, th;it the t rocs Mos.in in t hi- .Spring, or that our own uo!! : river courses its Those arc all self- way to the Oefnn eviJent facts. 15.it not one particle more evident than that intemperance is u wide spread, an almost universal evil, which like the malaria of our swamps, has infused its pestilential breath into every department of society, and corrup ted by iis baneful influence, all classes of tUe community. Ilighan'i low, rich & poor, bond and free; no matter how ex alted the station, wc find intemperance in the gorgeous palaces, high in author ity, "clothed in fine linen, and faring sumptuously every day.11 No matter how humble the individual. Wc find intemperance in the meanest hovels, ad ding to the thousand ills that abject poverty is naturally heir to, and rioting io rags and wretchedness. The most exalted intellects too, are frequently induced to succumb to its influence. If a man had the talent3 of an Angel, in temperance would make him a fool. ftay, this mammoth vice, not satisfied w'th triumphing over the world and disgracing its victims there, has even invaded the sacred precincts of the house of God, and caused a foul and lasting sligma to rest upon many a name there that otherwise would have been with out shame and without reproach. How often do you hear it Raid that such or such a member of the Church was drunk r that he drank too much, or was tip y. The sacred desk itself ha3 been roWied of some bright ornaments, by i . - . . .... oiu ravages ol this iell destroyer. These considerations, my fellow citizens speak to the patriotic, to the benevolent, to every one who wishes well to his country and his kind, in a voice more impressive than the eloquence of a De mosthenes or a Cicero, to look around anxiously to sec if nothing can be done (i stay the progress of this vice.

Shall the dignity of our nature which is de graded, the sanctity of the moral law which is profaned, and the decencies & proprieties of life, which are violated, appeal to u in vain, for action on this subject ; I rejoice that they appeal not in vain to the citizens in the neighbor hood of the Yazoo Pass. , On this day we have met together for the purpose, of forming a tee-total ab stinence society, of raising the standard of opposition to the vice of intemper ance, of lifting ap,a banner against it. And we invite all without distinction to join us in the solemn pledge, to touc&jiot, taste, not," handle rat, the intoxicating liquid. From lhe number and respecta bility of this assembly, we anticipate u most Torf nnntrt ,lv, -uiuuiv;iivuiiit;irr; you are no doubt impressed with the necccssity there exists for such a society among us as well as convinced of the great good mat win result Irom it. Our county from its situation' ofTcrs peculiar facili ties to all who wish to indulge in ardent spirits. Boats that are daily touching at our shores, are very liberal with their liquor, in hopes that by getting the farmer a little loozt, he may become more liberal with his cash.

Nor do wc cmply the language of intimida tion or menace on the contrary wc re ly entirely upon the moral power of truth of argument, of persuasion, we speak to wise men, judge ye what wo say. He appeal to the christian, to the man who has named the name of particularly impress upon you young Christ and should depart from all in-' gentlemen, the importance of forming iqnity.

Can any Christian pretend to say that the will of God is his rule, when by his example he is leading men into a situation in which they will acknowl edge no rule either human or divine. A situation alike abhorrent to religion and humanity a situation in which all the evil passions of our nature are a- roused,and man ceases to be a rcasona uic being. jJid'you ever sec a drunk man praying,' or could such a sight be regarded as any thing else than a bias phemous mockery of religion. Neither is a drunk man a fit subject for either rewards or punishments. But I will not pursue this branch of the subiect.- I know that we shall have the assistance "of the "religious part of the community in this work of reform I know that their names, their influence, their ex ample, and their prayers will be with us. It would indeed bo a very poor compliment to the religions of our own country to suppose that they would fail to co-operate in the mighty eflbrts that are now making by the benevolent and the religious in every country and clime for the moral reformation of the world. Think not fellow citizens, that this temperance reformation is . confined to the neighborhood of the Yazoo Pass.

We appeal to the old men, to the fa. thers-of this assembly, to you over whose temples revolving years have al ready begun to sprinkle, the silvery white.

AnJ 1 aPpeal to any father in this asscm- uiy, and ask him if he would not rather lay a beloved son in his coffin in his youth, with his morals pure and uncon taminaled than to see that son live and become a confirmed sot. But every dram drinker is liable to become a con firmed sot; habits of intemperance are not formed at once, it is only by drink ing for a long time that men acquire a fondness, a love, an unconquerable thirst for ardent spirits. Come then we en treat you and lay the axo at the root of the evil at once. Come with your sons and sign our constitution and our pledge. We hold them up to you, as Moses held up the fiery flying serpent in the wil derness. And the bitten Israelite was not more certainly cured of all poison ous infection by looking to the serpent that Moses held up, than you will be by signing and faithfully adhering to the requirements of our society. We appeal to the young men of this assembly, to you who in a few years more, must stand in the places now ocr cupied by your fathers. Wo would ; am sigiu to sec a voung man striving I jm. ! .

We do most confidently anticipate the assistance of your influence and example in this "work of reform; if you have no fondness for ardent spirits, you wilt make no sacri fice of taste or enjoyments by doing so, and you will be discharging a high and holy duly, which will add something to your standing and respectability, and be a source of gratification to yourself. If you are fond of a dram, it is a pow erful reason why you should join us. Flee to ou r Society as to a city of refuge, and do not, like LoVs wife, cast a single "longing lingering look behind." Re sist the Devil and he will flee from you, and there i3 no man in the world, but what can cure himself of his fondness for ardent spirits by manfully resisting every temptation to drink. We want the influence of your example; people generally, and young men particularly, are very much disposed to underrate the immense value of their good exam ple. Oh, they say, I am but one, what can I do, and another says, 1 am but one. and so says a third, a fourth, and so might say every man in a neighbor hood, county, state or even a whole na tion.

In vain may the preachers from the sacred desk fulminate the anathemas of heaven, against the vice of intemper ance in vain may our Legislature, pass Statute after Statute against it; un less the ladies will assist us in suppress ing it, it will not be suppressed.

They are closely, inseparably connected with us, and most commonly control our destiny in every circumstance and relation of life, from the cradle to the grave.

There is no circumstance connected with health concerning which the pub lic are in my opinion, so ill informed as the requisites of a healthy residence both as regards local position and inter nai construction. In this Island we have chiefly to guard against humidity, on which account our houses should not be built in low, confined situations, nor too near water, especially when stagna ted, and still less near marshes. Nei ther should a house be too closely sur rounded by trees or shrubs. Trees at some distance from a house are both an ornament and an advantage, but become injurious when so near to overshadow it, or prevent the air from circulating freely around it and through its vari. ous apartments. The atmosphere ofa bnildingoverhungby trees, or surround ed by a thick shrubbery, is kept in con. tant humidity except in the driest wea ther; and the health of the inmates rarely fails to sufler in consequence. Sir James Clarke on Consumption. Benefit of a Potatoc Diet. A potatoe diet is found greatly to im prove the quality of blood. Hence roas ted or baked potatoes are successfully employed as a specific against the sea scurvy, when other remedies have fail ed. This discovery was made in France. ' It is singular that boiled potatoes Ao not ! have the same effect. The Man without Arms. At Harrington's Museum in this city, there is a man on exhibition, the -.ingu- larity of whose appearance, without arms strikes the visitor with, strange sensations. But bein minus the unner , . o II extremities, doe not by any means, con stitute the whole curiosity of the show. He uses his toes with about as much fa cility as common people do their fingers, and Jar more industriously than some makb-weights in society, since he earns his own living.

This i3 perfectly justifiable, since there is no other mode by which heould pro cure the necessaries of life.

Boston Medical Journal. Society of Antiqnaries. On Thursday evening, Mr. Godwin, jun., drew the attention of the Society to the fact, that many stones both inside and outside various ancient buildings in England, bear a peculiar mark or sym bol, evidently the work of tho Freema sons. Similar marks are found on French buildings, and Mr. Godwin exhibited-a-series of diagrams showing tho similarity' which exists between those of the two countries. Gloucester Cathedral, Ferness Abbey, Checthams Peirre,at Poictiers, in France, and the Radegonde in the same city, were a mong the chief examples.' Hydrophobia.. The Buffalo Commercial contains tho following rules, which are extracted from the Paris papers under the auspices of tho "Committee of Salubrity.11 They may not bo out of place in this latitude." 1st. Any person bitten by a mad dog or ttny other animal, should immediately press with the two hands ail around the wound, so as to make the blood run freely and extract the saliva. a 1 T- i.i . . . . iu. vasnine wound with a mixture? of alkali and water, lye, soap, salt wa ter,urine, or even pure' water. During the time of washing and press ing the wound, warm a piece of iron in tho fire, and apply it deeply to said wound. Mind that the said piece of iron is only heated so "as to cauterize that it must not be red hot. These precautions being well observed are sufficient to preserve from the hor rid eflects of hydrophobia, and every one should keep them in their -mind. Microscopic Phenomena. Grains of sand appear of tha same form to the naked eye, but seen through a microscope, exhibit different shapos and sizes, globular, square, and conical. anu mostly irregular; and what is sur- prising, in their cavities have been found, IlV tlir r;rmc.nr.. : . f .j ....wuowpc, iiisuuis oi various kinds. The mouldy substance on damp bodies exhibit a region of minute plants. Sometimes it appears a forest of trees, whose branches, leaves, flowocg, &nJ fruits, are clearly distinguished. Some ofthe flowors have long white transpa rent stalks, and ' the buds before they open, are little green balls which be come white. The particles of dust on the wings ofthe butterfly, prove by the Microscope to be beautiful and well ar ranged little feathers. By the same in strument the surface of our skin has scales resembling thoso of fish; but so minute that a single grain would cover 250, and a single scale covers 500 pores whence issues the insensible pcrspira' tion necessary to health; consequently a single grain of sand can cover 125, 000 pores of the human body. Esyptiau Antiquities. We learn from a London paper that a pamphlet has been written by G. R. Gliddon, late U. S. Consul at Cairo, de nouncing Mehemet Alt for what Mr. Gliddon conceives to be a sacrilegious desecration and demolition ofthe pyra mids, the temples, the tombs, the sculp tures, and the paintings which record the glories f Pharaonic epochs; and in which consists much of the romance wnicn now attends the wandering foot steps of the intellectual visitor ot'Egypr. The destruction ofthe monuments of Egypt by its present Government is visi ted by Mr. Gliddon with the fiercest anathemas of an enthusiastic devotee in antiquities. Boston Evening Journal. Evolution of light in the Human Subject. It was ten days previous to L. A.s death that I (Sir Henry Marsh) obscr edavcry extraordinary light, which seemed darting about the face and illu- j minating all around her head, flashing ! very much like an aurora borealis. She was in a deep decline, and had that day been seized-with suffocation, which teased her much for an hour, and made her so nervous that she would not sufler me to leave, for a moment, that I migait raise her up quickly in case of a re turn of that painful sensation. After she settled for the night, I laid down be side her, and it was then that this lumin ous appearance suddenly commenced. Her maid was sitting up beside the bed, and I whi-percd to her to shade the 1??

The maid looked very mysterious and informed me she had seen that light be fore, and it was from no candle. I then inquired when she had perceived it; she said that morning, and it dazzled her eyes, but she had said nothing about tt as ladies always consider servants su perstitious. However, after watching it myself half an hour I got up, and saw tdiecandle was in a position from which Ibis peculiar ligh could not have come, nor indoad was tt like that sort of light; it was more silvery, like the reflection of moonlight upon water. I watched it more than an hour, when it disappeared. It gave the face the look of being painted white and highly glazed, but it danced about and had a very extraordinary effect. Thrco nighu after, tho maid being ill, I sat up all night, and again I saw thejuminous ap pearance, when there was no candle, nor moon, nor in fact any visible means of producing it. Her sister came into tha room and saw rt also. The even ing before L. A. died, I saw the light again, but it was fainter, qjid lasted but about twenty minutes. The state of. tho body of the patient was that of ex haustion. For two months shc had naversalupin bed. Many of her symp toms variedmuch from those of other sufferers whom I had seen, but the gen eral outline was the same. Her breath had a vary peculiar smell, which made me suppose there might be some decom position going forward. The young la dy about whose person these luminous appearances were manifested I had seen several times before her return to the country; her lungs were extensively diseased; she labored under the most hopeless form of pulmonary consump tion, London Medical Gazzett$. aiojra O lien's Eaufl&ter.
