TIic Laws of Health. “Know thyself,” is a precept which ha* ever been considered as imperative as it is wise. It has always, however, had reference, in its application, to the mo ral and intellectual, rather than the physical man.— Thousands of volumes ha e been written to exhibit and develope the powers and susceptibilities of the human mind, the character and tendency of the af fections ol the heart, replete with instrnctiou forthe improvement of the one, and the regulation of the o- tlier. While genius and talents have been thus exert ed, and been so liberally poured forth, the results of their researches and labors in relatiou to the inner man, is it not strange that so little regard has been paid to tbe outer roan ? Tr o it is, the one is hea ven-born and immortal, endued with susceptibilities of ceaseless improvement, while the other, the tene ment that encases it, is frail, fragile, and snbjectto de cay Yet, it is equally true, that the happiness of man is, in a great measure dependent npon his physi cal condition; nav, that this sometimes controls his eternal destiny. In expressing o -i ( surprise that so little has been done to render us acquainted with our physical structures, we intend not to depreciate what medicine has effected, in discriminating, and curing the diseases which flesh is heir to. Here, much has been achieved. Here, many important discoveries and improvements have bepn made. It has been, however, the aim of the medical profession, to ascer tain the character of the malady, and to learn how to apply the remedy, rather than to investigate the caus- ses of disease, and prevent its existence. The sci ence of ph siology—the laws of the human constitu tion—the only basis of correct knowledge of ph steal man, have never received the attention they merit, have never been ascertained and defined with the pre cision their importance demands. We are not ol the profession, ana will therefore lortify the assertion by the testimony of a competent witness. Dr. Combe, speaking on this subject, says: “There is scarcely a medical school ill tins country, (Great Britain) in which any special provision is made for teaching it; the pupil being left to elaborate it for himself from amid information communicated to him for other purposes.” In our country, it is believed, the remark of Dr. Combe will apply with equal, if not still greater force. If then, ancli are the facts in the department of life, wlteu we should reasonably expect a far different stale of things, how few and limited must be the facilities of correct information in t o community at large?— How general and deplorable the ignorance of, and consequent disregard to, the fundamental laws regu lating our physical condition ? That this inattention and ignorance prevail, and even among educated men, every day’s experience furnishes ample testimony. It is proved by the patent specifics, nostrums and pana ceas, that every where find their ready and confiding patrons. It is proved by the prevailing and extended quackeries of the empirick—by the thousand various and contrarient prescriptions which are daily admin istered, from the “«j*yhji«r4p” of tho old women, to the number six of the man of steam-—means, often times as ’inadequate to the end, as would be the at tempt to extinguish the fires of Mount Etna by a syringe, and as disproportioned as would be the heat of the Volcano, to the absorption of a drop of water. The truth is, the great mass of maukind are ignorant —totally ignorant of themselves. They know not the dangers to which they are exposed, nor with how much facility many of them may be obviated or remedied.— When disease lays his heavy hand upon them, if no faithful physician is near, their efforts at recovery are experimental; all before the is dark, dreary an! in comprehensible. Why is it, that this apathy exists upon a subject in which we are so deeply interested? Why is it. that men learned in every other department of literature and science, are content to live and die, ignorant of those laws o: nature to which they are subject and npou which so much of their happiness and usefulness tnay depend ? Are the laws ol health enveloped in a darkness that cannot be penetrated ex cept by the professional mediciner? Is he always to enjoy the monopoly,and shall none other be permit ted to look behind the veil which he has aided to con struct and throw around the subject? We live in an 4ge of improvement. It has been truly termed the h- tilitarian age. Men of the present day are throwing off many ofthe prejudices, which for ages have fet tered their predecessors. Is it not time that the pre judices which so long have existed^ and which have prevented inquiry and the acquisition of correct and genera] knowledge in relation to the matter under consideration, should be removed? We have long thought that that system of education waB defective, which does not embrace it within its scop6, and conse quently, that all our higher schools aud colleges are censurable for the omission. We coutend, that in all the colleges of our country achair should be filled by a professor, competent t« teach the general principles of physiology—the laws of health. In favor of this innovation, and in exami plain, familiar and perfectly intel igible language, not of disceaso til its ten thousand painful aud appaili..g forms! but of the apparently trivial .circumstances in « hich disease has it* unsuspected origin; shows, for examplb, how it is that a wet foot produces in time an affeqtion of trie lungs, why cleanliness promote^ and preserves health, how exercise produces its beneficial, and indo ence its had efforts; explains, so far as can be Explained, the mutual action of rniud and body up on each other; and tells us ho.vv to av id disease, by preventing or repairing the too' often unreg rded im prudences and neglects, which, trifling as they seem, are yet. in almost every case, the real, though remote agents in producing illness. The excellence of the work is two-fold; first, it: the truth, the wi-dom, and the comprehensiveness of ts instruction; secondly, in the total absence of all technicality, and the straight forward simplicity of the ideas, as well as the hingitagc in which they are conveyed. The matters set 1‘urtli areoi paramount interest among all worldly objects to every rational being, inasmuch as they relate to the greatest duration and highest enjoyment of life, and they are so exhibited, that »o medical knowledge, no peculiar strength of intellect, nothing more, in short, than plain common sense is requisite for their com plete appreciation.” If this be a correct description ol tho labors f Dr. Combe, (and we believe it to be true in every particu lar,) there cun be no validity in the objection, that the principles of physiology are not sufficiently dclii.ed. to make them a subject of collegiate study. One thing at least is certain, all can be taught here, that is known by those who claim a monopoly of the science; in other words, the student can learu ail that is known by the physician, to whose judgment aud guidance he is now compelled, blind-folded, to'surrender himself. _ ♦** i*.on* sands, to evade, detect and remedy, mar.v ef ;ba ri:d- adies to which those nearest at.*!d.-are-t posed.

But ns anomalous as it may appear, it is a striking evidence of that improvement.

When they see therefore, with what facility a medical student can obtain ht* Ij- oeu.se to kill and to cure, how little is the time devoted to -tndy. how limited the knowledge acquired, iho un- I willingness, (arising too often from inability) to give the rationale of the mode* of disease and their tomc- % - dies. or when attempted to be given, the learned < 1 ttiCai jargon, betraying the igfioranpe ofihe ntflbof .ind the jarring contentions and citnlrarietit pfnirlic ■ in il lation to the same case, of different members of the same profession, they come to the conclusion ih .: the doctors’ science is nothing more than theory, hi* skiH. successful experiment, and-they couseqpebtly, : reject ijjs prescriptions and regard him as au incubus upon < society.

Yet in every college of our country, there is a professor of metaphysics, and in not a few, of puiitical economy. But what are the adv ullages to result from the pro posed plan ? 1. Pretention of disease, and the health of the stu dent. When a youth enters the walls of a college, he enters upon a new tiieatre of existence The re straints of parental solicitude are no longer around him. Temptations, having a direct bearing upon his present aud future health, are evety where before him, ou the o o hand, to exert to their utmost cUrnpas-. the powers of his intellect; on tbe other, to yetid u> tile se ductive allurements of indolence, pleasure and vice.— Ignorant of his physical structure, of its functions, of its connection with external objects, and of their influ ences, he is the sole guardt tt of his health. How 'of ten is it :hat here the seeds of disease are sown, igno rantly permitted to vegetate, and sometimes even fos tered with sedulous care ? How of ten does disease, thus generated, if tt dues not hurry its victim to an early grave, follow him through years of protracted pain, and briug upou him tbe infirmities of a preuji lure old age ? Whar, though it permit him to ascend the bills of science and tii drink at the fountains ot classic lore, yet every step is impeded by physical de crepitude, and every draught is attended with pain From ignorance of the laws of health, and disregard to them at this perio . what talents have been cut oil, what usefulness destroyed, what expectations blighted, what individual suffering endured! Who is there tii.it in the circle of his acquaintance, cannot point to those who cau trace the origin of their broken constitutions aud dilapidated etrength, to some trivial excess or neg lect iu the days of their college life; or to others in a similar condition, who will declare, that had they then kuown the elementary principles of jdiysiology. “the winter of their discontent” would have been d ferred and they have evaded the withering prospect before them, of having their “sun to set at noon ?” The friends of education have long been sensible of tbe dangers to which we allude. Aud efforts have not been wauling to obviate and re ieve them Ileace the institution of gymnastic exercises, of manual labor schools, aud of otner expedients of similar'character and tendency. T/iese, under certain circumstances, i-iay be useful, but they pre-snpposr au acquaintance on the part of those for whose benefit they are inten ded, with tiie human constitution, its functions and sus- sceptibiiities, wiiich does not exist. They overlook the propriety, and necessity, of that previous know ledge which should direct their application, and upon which their utility depends They are, for the most part, ro gh-edged instruments, and when placed iu the hands of those who know not when or howto of the character of his disease, its remedies, their con nection with it, aud’their modus operandi. It is fioi’i these causes, mote than any thing else, that have origi-' ii.ited the popular distrust in till’ science and i:.< pro- ffissors, and to their operation,is to he attributed the progress and prevalence of empiricism. Why should thesecatlsesexist, and these consequences result?— The answer is found in the fact that the mediciner deals with those who are ignorant of tho fundamental principles upon which the utility of liis art is founded, and of the duties incumbent upotThiin, with llio.-e who yield implicit obedience to bis decrees, without being able todeiectliis errors. Hence, ali fearojjj theqonsr- quencesof mal-practice is removed, there exists no re sponsibility to public opinion, and theieis,i|o. stimulus to study and fidelity, other than that arising from pro fessional pride, and the approbation of a good cniiiCt- ence. In the other learned professions, a man’s men tal calibre, the extent of his acquirements and tha pe- euliat adaptation ot his talent* to his department, are immediately ascertained, and iu public estimation he at once sinks to the level, or rises to the elevation to which his real merit entitles tiim- The Opmifnil phjj:-^. sio«Hi,-however, cun smbothiv jilide'atmig the current, and without a shadow of claim to it. can meet with success; and sometimes obtain celebrity, and tbe true character of his intellect and attainments' nro never known. Non-let the science of physiology be taught in onr colleges^ and there will annually go forth an ar my of disinterested witnesses, competent to prove, that the human constitution is governed bv known Jaws, whattho.se laws are, and the absurdity and falla cy of. those who, ignorant of them, undertake to pres cribe fur. aud regulate the systems in which they ope- e fur. aud regulate the systems iu whi rate. Their ideasvvill be communicated to, and exert their influence upon, their families, their friends, and tira circle* in which they move. The quack (will be compelled to retire from the field of his devastations. Ttie regular physician will learn the necessity of be ing able to explain the principles upon which he acts, and of laying aside as a cloak, too thin to ho of any a- vail. the mystery in whichsome now attempt to shroud themselves, and' throw around their duties. Public opinion, thus enlightened aud regulated, will bo to thu profession a refiner’s fire, it will purifv it from the dregs which have encumbered it. and subjected it to odium, aud will place the deserving upon an elevation, whdfe they will command the confidence and respect of all. Wo might go on with an enumeration of the bene fits to be conferred by the introduction of this study in to our colleges. \Ve shall, however,content ourselves witli simply, adverting to itsteiuleupy to tbe promotion of virtuous conduct, to the increased ability it will af ford the individual affected by disease, to give to hi* medical advisci; a more iutell gible account of its histo ry and character; and to the effect produced upon him use ; by his own knowledge, that in submitting to theptc- thetn, as experience lias fully proved, they are' a* aptto scription* of hi* physician, Ik! is rendering oledieucc nation of some of the advantages resulting front it, we propose to offer a few remarks. Before entering into this discussion, it majr be im portant to premise, that we do not wish, under the de- pa tment proposed to be instituted, to establish a me dical school, or in any wa. to underrate the impor tance L>f a regular and independent medical education. AU that is desired is, thit physiology shall be taught as other sciences are taught—the fundamental principles explained, defended and impressed upon the mind.— Will it be said, -A liule teamin' i* » dnngeroui thia?. Drink d nop, or U*te not tha pieriaa »prme V The truth of this monition is no more applicable here, th-rn to • 11 other branches of’ education. No one expects a student in college to become an accom plished' mathematician, geologist, chemist or political economist. And no one would expect him to become a thorough and perfect physiologist. His proficiency in one department, it may fairly be presumed, would bear an equal comparison to his improvement in‘be other*: and the same rule, so far as extent of acquisi tion is concerned, that would render one useless or dangerous, would apply equally to all. The question here suggests itself, are the laws reg ulating th« human constitution sufficiently ascertained an define!, to render them worthy of an introduction into a course of thorough and systematic instruction ?. fr is unquestionably true, and as strange as true, that there has been upon thi* snbject-a lamentable deficien cy of observation and research. Allis not known that should, and will be, known. Here, as in mental phi- losopoy. theory upon theory has been erected and d do injury as good. Who cau expect a Imildiug to be erected according to the rules of architectural taste, by the novice, who is ignorant of the first principles f his art and the use of his tools ? Who can expect, that his own frame, “a harp of a thousand strings.” can be kept in tune, by one who knows nothing of its con struction? Let then the student be early instructed in a knowledge of himself, of those general laws which control the human .constitution. He will then team the character and capacity of bis physical powers, how numerous and potent are the influences which, like covert foes, are lying in wait to seize upon and de stroy him, and-how to evade their approach and resist theirattacks 2. The study of physiology is calculated to exert a beueficial effect upon the mnraj feelings ofthe student. He is here led to the contemplation of one of the no- blest displays of the wisdom and power ofthe groat Creator. In his own body lie beholds a world within itself.—all its parts inutiiailv dependent upon each o- ther, acting in perfect harmony, and exactly adapted to the purposes for which they were respectively inten ded. While with Drvden he is led to the acknowledg ment, that “God sever made hi* work for mu to mend,” he is irresistibly constrained to reverence aud adore tbe author of his being. 3. An acquaintance with the science, leads to a more complete development of the intellectual powers.— There is no truth in philosophy more clearly establish ed than, that the operations of the mind are intimately connected with the physical organization, and conse quently that the successful cultivation of the former, depends upon the observance of the laws of the latter. For instance, the brain is the organ of the mental fa culties. Let this be effected by an excess of activity or repose, by stimulating drink or food, by anger, joy or grief, aud to the same extent are the faculties of the mind affected. He that learns therefore, what are the physician, 1 to the Uws of his Creator. Our object has heeu ra ther to solicit consideration of the subject, than to dis miss it ip all its dentils. We believe the clay is ap proaching, when such will be the improvements of general and profcssicuaj eibiuatlon, that it will he un derstood to an extenf, and followed by practical results affecting tlie ImppiiiesS and usefn1nb.es of onr race, which none now cAn adequately conceive. Wo call then upon our legislators, upon those who < ontopl tho literary institutions of our country, the gliariJiao* and guides of the education audimprnveinent of em youth, to give it the nttetitiou its importance demands. Geo gia.June, lSliti. In organic laws to which he is subject, learns at the same time the ’ necessity of obedience to them, in order to the full de velopment of the intellect. _ 4. Thi* knowledge is nspfiif in subsequent life. In the selection of studies, constituting what is usually, t-'rm d a liberal education, two objects are alwavskept in view, viz: to extend the powers of the mind and , to improve iu or in the language of an able writer in tlie d'niitirgh Review, “to make the mind an instru- m 'lit for the improioment of science,and to makesci- enee aijius’r’tiuent for tbe immovement ofthe mind To effect the foi mer object mathematics and logic are .d int 'd, and to aeVomn1i«h the latter, reference is had to df! general ranee of other sciences, preference be ing given to the* most clos dv connected with the practical purpose* of life.
