Shoet Gbaves. — Why do so many children die ? Why are our cemeteries filled with short graves ? Why do more than half of the children born never reach the age of manhood P Is it because God has not made man as wisely, or as well as he made the ox or the dog ? Who would think of raising cattle or horses if five out of every ten died before being old enough to come to the yoke or the harness. There must be some great mistake in the original organization of man, or else some egregious errors in the habits and training of the human race. There are several reasons for these early deaths, for this want of stamina in the human constitution. And let it be remarked that it is not among the poor and ignorant, the hard working and plain living class, where we find the" greatest infantile mortality. It is with those are well housed, and have a plenty of food, and raiment, and culture. True, among the poor there are many deaths from contagious diseases, and occasionally an instance of wasting decay ; but the ragged, barefooted, and plainly fed labourer's child is more often ruddy, rollicking, hearty, and healthy than the well cared for child of the opulent. No doubt extra warm rooms and too little out of door exercise sends many a child to the grave. Candies, rich food, irritating condiments, and this everlasting nibbling between meals of cakes and delicacies tend to impair the young stomach, and debilitate the nervous system, and produce early death j but we believe the prime destroyer of the children of to-day is tobacco, flanked on either hand by its coadjutors tea and coffee, and in many instances supplemented with that scourge of scourges, alcoholic drink. Boys ohew and smoke tobacco. They think it manly and smart. Thus, in the years of growth, they shatter their nervous systems, derange their digestive and circulatory apparatus, and fail to develop into that brawny, robust manhood which nature intended in their organization. They become pale, sallow, lank in the cheek, and lank in the abdomen, weak in the back, and weak in the head, fretful, fidgetty, and not more than half developed. Many boys of seventeen, when we advise them not to smoke, tell us they cannot possibly leave off smoking ; they must either chew or | smoke ! and they reveal to us the amount of their indulgence in this respect which is truly alarming. Ten, tw elve cigars a day is nothing uncommon ; an amount, indeed, every day sufficient to kill three men who were not previously accustomed to the vile weed. These boys do not attain to their normal growth by an inch and a-half in height and twenty-five to fifty pounds in weight, and are lean, scrawny, nervous, half-built wrecks. They marry the daughters, perhaps, of men of similar habits, and these daughters, housed up in ladyhood without exercise, accuitomed to strong coffee and tea, are about as nervous, and nearly as much debilitated as their tobacco-smoking bridegrooms. They have children born to them, and from such parents can healthy children be expected. It is said that the Feegee cannibals have become wiser than to kill tobacco users for the purpose of food ; for they flndit impossible to eat them, so saturated have they become with the poisonous drug ! Ai a cannibal will not e»t * tobacco User ifc k fair to loppose that chil-
dren will inherit the nervous condition and debilitated state of a parent so saturated. Many a mother nurses her child after having two or three cups of strong coffee, and that child from birth, to speak bluntly, is drunk on coffee, till, from enlargement of brain or brain fever, it is hurried off to a tiny grave. The use of tobacco produces, on nearly all who use it, more or less disease of the throat. Who shall say the prevailing epidemic, Diptheria, was not born of tobacco ? Our young men must quit tobacco, or the race will be ruined. — American Phrenological Journal.
The South Austrian Eailway Company has resolved to establish at Trieste a large depot for Hungarian wheat, in readiness at all times to meet sudden demands from foreign countries. Ifc is stated that storehouses of some kind have been ordered to be constructed in England, for shipment to Trieste, capable of containing half a million of English quarters. A large fire broke out at Toulon, on January 6, in the floating bagnio, but has been extinguished. All the convicts were saved, and nobody was injured. The cause of the fire is unknown.
