Db. B.W. KiCHAitDsox, in the Asclc
piad, treating of felicity as a sani
tary research, ebserves: "The center
of the emotion of felicity is not in
the brain. The center is in the vital
nervous system, in the great ganglia
of the sympathetic, lying not in the
cerebro-spinal cavities, but in the
cavities of the body itself, near the
stomach and in tho heart "We know
where the glow which indioates felic
ity is felt, and our poets have ever,
described it with perfect truthfulness
aa in the breast It comes as fire
kindling-there. No living being ever
felt happy in the head; everybody
who has felt felicity has felt it as
from within the body. We know,
again, where the depression of misery
is located; --our physicians of all time
have defined that, and have named
the disease of misery from its local
seat.'". 'The man who is miserable is a
hypochondriac; his affection is seat
ed under the lower ribs. No man
ever, felt misery in the head. Every,
mairwho has felt misery knows that
it springs from the body, speaks of it
is as an exhaustion, a sinking there.
He is broken-hearted; he is failing at
tho center of life; he is bent down
because of the central failure, .and
his own shoulders, too heavy to be
borne, feel as-if oppressed by an add-
ecLweigbt or burden, under which he
bendi as though all the cares of the
world -were upon him to bear him
Commentinff on this the Lancet
gays that, in other wordb, felicity is a
physical result of a brisk and health
ily full circulation of blood through
tho vessels supplying the ganglia of
the great sympathetic system of
nerves; and whatever quickens and.
at the same time frees the flow of
blood in these vessels particularly,4
engenders the feeling wo call happi
ness. .This is the fact, and we believe
it explains the action of many arti
cles of food and medicine and medi
cal appliances. It, moreover ex
plains and confirms the truth
of the maxim which wo have so often
recommended for general adoptien:
"Be briskly, not languidly, joyous if
you would bo well." Tliisis the con
verse'of the doctrine that happiness is
an affair of the heart and stamach. A
comfortable, a? contrasted with an
aust'exe, mode of life is the most nat-
ural,-and-theretore the hoalthiost and
tho best "Wo sometimes wonder why
thoso who live by rule, and tremble
as tTiey livelaboring to oat and drink
precisely what is "good for them,"
and nothing else, are so weakly and
miserable. The cause of failure is
that such person? are over-careful;
life is a burden to them. They have
no "go" in their mode of existence.
One-half of the "dyspeptics" we see,
and whose sufferings we are asked to
relieve, would be "well" if they were
only -"happy." Everything in life and
nature acts and leaots in a circle. Be
happy, and jour sympathetic gangl.'a
will have ibe blood coursing through
therewith the bound of health; and
this quickwii'? of the pulse, if it be
produced by "good cheer," whether
at the table or on the mountain side,
will, in its turn, produce happiness.
Felicity is the outcome of a physical
state, and that state is itself enhanced
by the sort of cheerfulness which
often consists in being happy in spite
The proposition to pay the Irish
national members of parliament is an
advance Btep on the part of Mr. Par
nell and his followers in their strug
gle to obtain home rule for Ireland.
One of their :great difficulties is not
to find men who -are competent to
discharge the duties of a member of
parliament, but to find men who can
afford the expense and upon whom
they can. at the same time depend for
an unwavering support. A paid par-
liamentary'delegation is a .new idea
in English politics,and will, of course,
be aneered at by the organs of the
landlord and "moneyed classes. The
Irish in this country will be the heav
iest contributors to the fund for this
purpose. It is already large, and
now that the appeal forsubscriptions
has been publicly made it will iu all
probability assume very handsome
proportions It is a sacrifice on their
part in behalf of liberty and freedom
which all right thinking Americans
Geobge M. Bobesox, -wbom Ibe
New Jersey Eepublioans ungratefully
refused to send to tbe Chicago con
vention, says that be could -write, a
book qaite- as interesting, although
perhaps laoking the literary finish of
T&r. Blaine's famous volume. He as
serts that in tbe early hours of the
Hayes administration he was virtuaDy
president, as the bead of tbe navy,
"and before Mr. Hayes took tbe oath
otoffloe publioly on the 4th of March
he had been secretly sworn in by the
chief justice. "If the Demoorata,"
says air. Jtsooeson, "Had possosse&i
backbone in those days they might
have put Tilden in." Tbe er-socie-
tary of the navy should by all means
sit downr and write his book. His
party has tied bis hands during the
coming oampaign and served notice
on him that he is of no further use to
it Let him turn historian. What a
delightful history of the navy he
Ths senate at "Washington has set
tled the important question that tho
commissioner of agriculture is, in
virtue of Jiis position, entitled to go
on the floor of that body while the
vgrave and reverend legislators are in
session, xne farmers all over the
country will rejoice over 'this con
cession to their interests. All the
crops will, no doubt, be greatly bene
fitted. The winter wheat will grow
at least an inch when it hears the
news, and when the peas, the corn,
the potatoes, the beans and tho toma
toes are planted they will strike
root at once. The consideration on
the part of the senate for
th fanning interests of the re
public is exceedingly touching. What
a calamity it would be if the' sena
tors had decided not to allow Com
missioner Loring into their august
presence while they were deliberating
on. the .affair of the nation. -
PeopiiE along the Northern Pacific

up the Yellowstone, a well has been
sunk 900 feet without success, and ia
still going" down, and" at Helena there
is more experimental boring.
