the danger of catching cold. We are
told that:, our room is close and illy

a draft, and we catch cold. Wo are
told that 5 we should not allow such a

a hundred times against the, gliss un

where it can see through. Just so it is
with human ) beings i about taking cold.
They will catch cold a hundred times,
and then go for the one hundred and

tovprvent tbldsItis the simplest thing
In the world ; just as simple as taking
a drink of water. It is si dj ply the act
of preserving. . Preserve an eren tem
perature, lie who does this will never
enffer from colds. The artists, or pro
fessors, -who endeavor to preserve fruits
in this natural state, strike first for the
temperature at - which they can not
sour, then for 4 evenness at that point.
The same must j be done to' preserve
health. Fiud the normal condition, that
of pleasantness and comfort, theo pre
serve an equable temperature, and there
will be no danger. It will be said that
"it cannot be done. It is granted j but
till, theoretically the I wo points men
tioned must first of all be fixed: first,
what a proper condition of the system
is ; and second, resolve to' maintain It,
OIa course, thcrewill be variation.
There must be exercise, and sometimes
violent exercise, i There will he excite
ment; passion more ok less vehement.
All persons' will f be 'violent at times.
. The thing wanted is fa, aceppt the fact,
nd act acctirdiDgly. Keep as near the
normal condition as possible j but when
necessity competa a 1 risioK 'above or
falling below the proper point, use dis
cretion to reeoter - JbVeeze an apple,

no use trf counsel people to beware, to
be careful, to avoid danger, ' Mothers
and doctors have done this very thing for
fife thousand years, and the business of
warning is larger now than it ever swaa
before Doctors make more money to
day from people" taking cold .than they
did fiUyryfars ago, while marble-work-
ers and grave-diggers reap- more from'
this. source, than from jny o't her. .Is it
a fact, therefore, that it is .useless to
give advice lKis' true, advice, like
m'edicinc, is easier to give than take,
and, like most things that cost nothing
turns out to be worth nothing. It must
cost'aomethingto be really of any value
Still the all-important fact remains, that
there is a right way to return from all
the excesses above enumerated. And
to return, to recover equilibrium after
violent exercise or exposure, is the most
important part, of 'health-keeping. A
little of thatuncommnn thing, common
sense, is the only requisite. X
- The human frame was intended for
activityto run fast and to run slowly ;
but it must be managed A locomotive,
can be run vecy fast, but if stopped in
stanianeously, jrhen going at a high
rate of speed, it ls. unjointed as badly as
if it had had inflammatory rheumatism
for seven years. A skillful engineer,
hovever, tones down his, s eed gradu
ally ; and in this lies the whole sreret
of not taking cold. It is exposure or
carelessness after exercise that brings
on colds. After walking, or running,
or dancing, or any exercise that quick
ens the circulation a little current of
air from a window, a crevice, from an
open door for. a "few minutes, just to
cause a chill, is sure to produce a cold
Merely stopping on the street in a cur
re ni of; air of at a corner, where the
wind breaks or makes an ahgle--U ccr
tain to do the job Any sudden subsi
dence of active forces of the body in a
temperature that chill?, will produce
cold. The little co.mmoh sense that" is
needed, and for; the lack of the exercise
of which so much money is paid to
doctors, is to preserve an eqaable teni-peratuTey-tn7
recover the proper state gradually and
without a chill. Thin is attained in a
mot simple andeasy manner. After
exercise, always seek rest in a sheltered
place, where you will be warm- never
being hasty to remove hat. gloves or
cape, let perspiration subside before
disrobing, if in-doon, and if out-d(Krs,
always Jceep gently moving t until-. the
usual cofiditton it attained.- Let the
aim be evenness ff temperature, anduo
all.' cases of free'. exerci tone down
gradually. Never be afraid to exercise
Ireely, but be very careful to manage
the force judiciously that is developed
Itjs well always; to keep cool, but it is
better since all must grow warm some
time.4 never to cool off .too quickly.
The mother, wjio spoils her child by
indulgence, often says, u keep your
temper, my child' Dame Naturesays
to her self-indulging brood, " Keep
your temperature, my children." t
Nature's maxim contains the secret
of long life and enduring happiness.
Ubey your parents, is the law of. phy
sics, as well as of morals. The counsel
of maternity a counsel as old as, the
creation, hoary with an age of sixty
centuries, given by fond mothers to
burly sons and gushing daughters be

counsel fragrant; with all holy associa

Political Reform.
It is apparent to all men that a radi
ical reform in the running machinery
of the Government is' needed and de
manded the patronage of the Presi
dential office, and the connection of
Congressmen with the same, is a source
of great corruption and extravagance,
and mulcts upon ; the Government
horde of servile incompetents, who are a
serious detriment to its interests The
Federal City has become infested with
I Indian .rings, -.and .a- thousand other
forms of leeching the publie Treasury.
The franking privilege niustbe abolish
ed, the civil service reform effected,
and the tariff policy so shaped and exe
cuted as not to favor one branch, of to
dustry at the expense of another, nor to
enricn speculators, under cover oi tuc
protective system. These practical
treasures of reform are needed the
people perceive the existence of that
necessity -and as soon as tne para
mount and superior issues of national
credit and national security are fairly
out of thejway, the people will rise in
their might, and will demand the pas-
s.igeand the enforcement of the leforms
we have spokeh of.
The above is from the Toledo Blade.
r We are lad to see a disposition in
many of our best journalists of the pre,
sen day to proclaim the truth, no mat-,
ter whom it-affects This laying" off of
blind partisan prejudice by leading men,
is an omen of strength and better days
The Blade is right when it says," U is
apparent to all men that a radical
reform ia the running machinery of
Government is needed and demanded.
Ac.,' and it should have added to its
.list of reforms, the abolition of all life
offices in the Government ; the rVht of
all who exercise the elective franchise
to vote directly for President and Vice
President; the establishment, hy fun
damental law, of the supremacy of the
general Government over that of an in
dividual State ; and the permanent set
tlement of the proper qnaliScation of a
voter in; the Governmcut, based upon
the unalterable and natural line , of
race. All these reforms, as well as
those mentioned by the Blade, it is ap
porent, most be made and effected, atd
that speedily' or the experiment to es
tablish Republicanism here will prove
a signal failure. And when the people
shall stop to post themselves a to what
their servants are doing; and as to the
condition of their Governmental af
fairs; and shall learn to disregard ap
peals to their prejudices, made by ig
norant, silly, coriupt and wicked dema
gogue's, who care for nothing, save
their own aggrandizement and self-promotion;
they will rise Nin their might,
assert; and exercise their . sovereign
power, and demand and enforce the re
form of which we speak.
The Blade then adds :
t The point wo wish to make is, that
the Republican party,, being in power,
can prolong its days by adopting" and
carrying out these economic reforms.
They are in exact consistency with its
principles and record in tho past. They
legitimately belong to, and grow out of,
its long cherished ideas. That policy
will be the legitimate outgrowth of
what it has already accomplished. And
we may add, that neglect to accomplish
these desirable and necessary economic
reforms, will be a proof of incap city or
recreancy -suScient to ' warratttihe
American' people in dismissing it from
. The next point we wish to impress is,
that if the Republican party do not in
scribe these reforms on its banner, the
Democratic party will, and with them
that party will march to victory; And
wo are compelled by truth to say, that
the influence gained by certain selfish,
managing, and unprogrcssive ' Republi
cans over the appointments of the Ex
ecutive, seem to be making the march
of that party to power by this method
a very easy one. At tfceir , bidding,
valuable publie officers, scarcely warm
in their chairs, are sent back to private
life, whoso only offence has been a close
attention to business, and an intcgrit
' and independence of character whic
rendered the approach of corruptionists
to influence their action Impossible.
And that ia all trno. Th mAnta
taken by tho Blude are well taken: and
: , , . . ,,
we desire further to impress upon our
party that we- mustj at the .-very nejet
fiest-ion of Congress, demand the repeal
1 0f the law which reaches into Africa fot
material but of which to make citizens
and. voters, and also-inscribo-upon bur
banners the reforms we have herein
named or the Democratic, or -; some
other political party,7will march to cer
tain victory. : We have fought the dan
gerous Radicalism of onr party, and ad
vocafed the proper reforms since the
timfcLwhea Lee surrendered to Grant;
. . .. .. - -. .
and now, f if, the old ship which hajs
performed Tsuch noble service, and
which aredthe' Government in her
death - stangglwith treason, must, go
down, we will go down with her, hold
ing erect her tattered banner, but with
the sweet consolation thaf we have done
our duty, by a fearless proclamation of
approaching danger, both on the stump
and as a journalist.
Russia Comliifr to the Proat.
There is nothing extraordinary in
the circumstance of Russia's demandiog
a revision of the treaty signed at Paris
in 1850 It would be unjust to regard
her doing so as anythiog in the shape
of a wanton jattempt to increase the dis
turbance in Kurbpe, or; to extend the
theatre of, war. There is nothing but
fair play and propriety ia her demand.
It is preposterous to suppose that a
great power like; Russia would - tubmit
to the. humiliation imposed on it by
that treaty a single day longer than was
absolutely tieccssary. According to its
provision!, the Czar could not establish
any naval or - military arsenal on the
shores ; of the Black Sea, nor erect any
fortifications there, nor maintain a
greater; naval 'force than ten small
steamers on the waters of the Kuxiue
All thiswasi meddling with his un
doubted fights as a sovereign, and had
no others justification than the', superior
strength of the parties insisting upon it.
Neither France nor England could cx-
ect thai this condition of affairs would
ast fbf ever and, consequontlyj they
most haveforeseen an endeavor to do
away- with , ttTThey ' must also have
known welHfhat they could not take
npon, themselves the 1 responsibility of
resisting that endeavor whenever it was
made Iufact, the treaty of 1 830 wa.
only a tern jxrary expedient to prop up
the throne cf the Saltan, and in the
nature of things it -could not last very
long, i Russia would be; wanting in self
respect, the national pride of her people
wounded, if she did not avail herself of
the first' opportunity to break through
the ' bonds . imposed upon her. Nor is
she open to the charge of perfidy by at
tempting to escape from engagements
once solemnly ratified. The conditions
of the treaty were in themselves unjust,
and they were accepted only under the
coercion of flfcets and armies, which
Russia at the time could not cope with.
Then, her mode of proceeduro is equit
able. She asks the consent of the con-
trading parties to her abrogation of the
humitiating document, and if they, or
cither of them, persist in the injustice,
she will consider herself , at liberty to
brck by force that which force con
structed.; While we acknowledge Rus
sia's inherent right to resist tliepreten
sions of any power to dictate to her
what ? slaps, she shall and shall not
have in the Black Sea, or what sort of
naval "or mihtary establishments she
shall erect'on her own territory, we are

iar irom approving oi auy attacic on tne
independence of Turkey. If the people
of that country are discontented with.
the rule of the Sultan, they havo an
undoubted right to throw it off ; if they
would prefer the; rale ot the Czar, they
have a nght to transfer their allegiance.
Hut until we see some good proof that
they desire to 'make such a change

has not; been 'insensible to, his danger,
and he is aware of the folly of depend
ing either en England or France to pre
serve the integrity of Jus dominions.
Great attention has been paid during
the past fourteen jcars to the develop
ment and improvement of the. defensive
poVer of the country. The Turkish
army is now six hundred thousaud
strong, is well armed, and in a tolerable
state of efficiency. The navy is ex
cellent, and comprises some of the best
iron plated frigates afloat ; so that a
repetition of the Sioope afiair is hardly
Within the limits of , possibility. The
sum of tho situation is, that Turkey
is far from being an insignificant
power to deal with, and that if, Russia
ventures upon aggression, she will find
more serious obstacles in the way than
she imagines. Ghronitle. . , , , , - :
