To illustrate : . ,’ A lady was about to get into a small j boat to cross tbe Delaware, but wliile ! wishing first to get ah orange at a fruit stand, she ran up the. bank of the riv** cr, and on- her return to the boat, found herself much heated, for it was in the summer ; but there was a little wind on the water, and the clothing soon felt cold to her. The next morn ing she had a severe cold, which set* tied on her lungs, and within a year she died of consumption, A stout strong man was. working in a garden in May, Feeling a little tired about noon he sat down in the shade of the house and fell asleep.— He waked up chilly. . Inflamation of the lungs followed,. ending after two years of great suffering, in consump tion. On opening his chest there was such an extensive decay that.the yel> low matter was scooped out by the.

Brownlow, of Tennes see, takes this view of the future of the negro, in a late letter to his Knoxville Whig, upon the presump tion, we suppose, that they are to re main among the whites: : The negroes, like the Indian tribes, will gradually become extinct, having no owners to care for them, and not owning property in them, they will cease to increase in numbers—cease to be looked after and cultivated— ~ while educated labor will take the place of slaue labor. Idleness, starva* tion and disease, will remove a major ity of the negroes in this generation.
