Selections from Different Authors. 569 of laudanum may be given, or even thirty or forty if required; and the body to be kept as warm as possible with hot blankets and flannels; and bags of hot bran or salt about the region of the stomach and bowels, where a warm bath cannot be had. It appears that the patient does not feel cold to himself, although to other people, his body is cold and clammy, like the

skin of a frog. Persons in health wishing to keep the - bowels in order, are recommended at this time, not to

take cold medicines, like salts, but warm ones, like rhubarb. An equal quantity of rhubarb, magnesia, and ginger, is an excellent medicine at all times, and is not only good for the bowels, but corrects acidity in the stomach also. But much physicking and drugging is to be avoided.

- SELECTIONS FROM DIFFERENT AUTHORS. · Call your children together every morning and evening to ask God's protection, and to thank him for the blessings which you have. Never neglect attending church on Sunday. More criminals at the gallows say they have been brought there by neglecting the worship of God on the Sabbath, than by any other thing. Take care every evening to search the Scriptures.--Cottager's own Book.

Mysteries are truths not discoverable by human reason, but made known by Divine revelation.--Archbishop Whateley.

Every step in sin is a step in sorrow.-J. Hender

[ocr errors]

· Regard how men act, rather than what they say. Professions are easy, but actions are a sure and simple test.-J. C.

He who will not see when he should or could, shall not see when he would.—Lavater.

| EXTRACTS FROM THE PUBLIC NEWSPAPERS, &c.

IT CHOLERA.-A large paper has been hawked about London, bearing the following inscription.-"Dram-drinkers must expect to be the first sufferers from cholera.” It is said by others that those who are in a poor state of body from low living, or dirt, or breathing impure air, are particularly liable to attacks of this disease. These accounts come to the same thing; for dram-drinking brings people to a low state. A dram raises them for a short time above their natural state, and then they sink, again to a very low state in consequence of this unnatural excitement.

BED-CURTAINS.-A free circulation of fresh air being neces. sary to promote the health and prolong the life of man, it is difficult to conceive any more effectual means of hindering the operation of this most beneficial agent than bed-curtains. Where thick heavy bed-curtains are closely drawn around a family-bed, for instance, in which a husband and wife, and occasionally an infant pass a third part of their time, the air within the curtains must necessarily be breathed again and again by the unfortunate occupants of the bed, and every additional time that it is respired, it becomes more and more unfit to support life.-Henderson's Rules for Improving Health.

Lately, about 12 at night, a fight took place in the Fair-field,' between two men, named Triggs and Mody. The fight lasted half an hour, when Mody struck his opponent a tremendous blow, and fell very heavily upon him at the last round. Triggs was attended by Mr. Dodd, surgeon, who took 40 ounces of blood from him. He was afterwards conveyed to the Infirmary, where hc died about noon the next day.-Brighton Herald,
