An article in the Inst number of Black* wood's Magazine. on the above subject, holds out the idea that the age of man should be one hundred years iu stead of three-score and ton. The author says: "We do not simply die: we usually kill ourselves. Our ^-habits, cur pa*iions, our anxieties of body and mind ; these shorten our lives, and prevent us from reaching the natural limit of human exist* ence." Gluttony, he asserts, destroys more live? than inteinperjte drinking, aud yet, 14 it is the fashion to restrict tho term sobriety to the moderate use of liquors.'' A sober life implies moderation in nil thing*?in eating, drinking, and in the enjoyment of all the plea sures oi life. Hut although we hare heard much of moderation in eating and in drink ing, the difficulty has always arisen in our minds respecting the true standard of modera tion. What is it? who will define it? The standard suit&blo for one is not for another. No man can doui>t for a moment the benefits of moderation?temperance in all things. But no man can or should set up his own standard for his neighbor. And yet it may truly he stiid, that general tules for temperance may be tet down, which if followed, would %e of immense benefit; such as not to cat to mnch as will unlit the mind for its usual exertions; or so much as wi.'l make the body heavy and torpid. Nor to pass hastily from one extreme of living to another, but to change slowly and cautiously, te c?t plain and wholesome food, and to proportion its quantity to the tempera ment. the age, and strength of the eater. Not to allow the appetite for food or drink to regu late the quantity to be taken, but experience, void of sensual desire.*' These rules, if fol lowed. will tend to promote health, and thus load to a greater length of days and years in man's existence; still there is a nalurxl period for man to cxi.-t. ami neither food, drink, nor sobriety can pla?*e him beyond that. We find that each sprcies of animal has its boundary of life, and so has man. He has its infancy, youth, middle age, old age. and then comes comes the winding sheet and the narrow house. But how long does his existence last ? how many years encircle his natural life' These nr.- important questions. We find that thirty years is considered to be a generation; that is, the whole world is re-peo| led every thirty years with a new race, and a like number de parts fit m it in that period. But no person considers thirty years as the natural term of man's life?sevorty years being generally set dowu as that limit. A book, however, recent ly published in P.tris by M. Fiourens, which has created no .-mall sensation in that city, places old n^c at eighty-five ycrrs, and the complete n.iturnl life of man about a century. places first manhood between forty-five and lit'ty-five. end sc.?ond manhood from that to .-e\ eiity. instead of old age at that period. Wc are inclined to accept hi.- view of the question ar the nioft c ?rrect one. BnC-u. the natural ist. entertained such an opinion. The rule of lite laid dovn by him i-, that animals live from six to seven times the number of years required to complete their growth, such as the horse, which complete its growth at four years, lives fr< m twenty lb twenty-four years, and a man who take- eighteen years to reach his full growth may live more than a hundred years. There are uut few men who live to a hundred years, and ju-t as few horses that live to twen ty-four. 1 ut that affords no reason why many men. and almost all men of sound constitution may not live f-r a century. The tabic of M. Fiourens relating to life is a* follows: Man grows for 20 years, and live? 90 or 100. The camel 8 44 44 40 The horso 5 44 "25 The ox 4 44 " 15 or 20 The dog 2 44 14 10 or 12 This is somewhr.t different from Bufl'on. but he sets it down as a fixed rule that all the larger animals live about five times longer than the time required for their full growth. This question is one of deep importance to the whole human family. It is one to which the ingeni< u> Frenchman has brought a great amount of knowledge in investigation, and he holds up seiencc, as presenting to all men a life of sobriety, a very extended fund of exis tence.?Scientific A merican. A Black-Heauted Villain-.?In to-day's paper wo publish the resolutions of the Ches ter (III.) Macoido IeKlge, exj>elling one Dr. Wm. A Gordon, for gross, immoral, unmaaonic, unprofessional and ungentlemuuly conduct. The hietory of tho caso presents ono of the most diabolical acts of villainy ever perpetra ted in n civilized community. The following particulars are derived from a gentleman who naslon^, bfcen intimate with the parties. This Gordon graduated in one of the medi cal schools of tnis city, and removed to Ches ter some- years ago, ami there wont into prac tice with Dr. Ferris, lie has an amiable wife and several children. From sumo cause, the son of Dr. Ferris disliked Gordon, and they remained enemies until tho death of Dr. Fer ris. Gordon then made friends with young Ferris, and became intimate with a beautiful young lady to whcai .he wits engage*! to be married. Ferris removed to Cincinnati, and during his absence Gordon used every art in his power to seduce the young girl; but failing in his hellish designs, he administered certain drugs, and thus triumphed over her virtue. By threats of exposure ho forced her to contin ue the criminal connection, and received from her letters acknowledging her guilt. A short time ago Ferris returned to Chester, and think ing his betrothed still innocent, mariied her. Gordon?who had really never forgiven Ferris the injuries of the past?placed a package of his wile's letters in his way, which told the whole story of her crime. His first thought was to tuko tho life of the destroyer of his poace, but not meeting him, and reflecting that his wife might be equally guilty, ho lett the village, ami has never yet returned. The excitement growing out cf the affair was intense and the Mueoi s promptly exjadledGordon from their Lodge. The c.u?o is one in which the se verest penalties of the lynch law would l?e justi fiable, and wc sincerelv fcojKi the brutal fiend will get his deserts. There is no other law to reach him, nud he :>hou1d be hung, without judge or jury, to the highest ilmb on Chester Bluff.

There is no punishment too severe for such a black hearted miscreant?St. Louis Herald.. The Last ok tub Beavers.?It will excite the surprise of many to find, by the following letter, written to the Southern Planter, by Mr. R. Irby. of Nottaway, Va., that beavers atill linger in that State, lie says : "You will deem my situation a very pecu liar one when I tell you that one of the great est hindrances I encounter in keeping my flat land dry is da bis made by beavers. I would not err much in saying that I have had as many us twenty dams on my land, which are rebuilt as fast as I pull them down. The courses of larg* branches have been changed, and the whole flat laud iuundated in some in stances ; and, not sati-ficd with branches, the community has become so l%rge as to put * dam across the river, selecting a rock founda tion, which no freshet will remove.

There arc Mune persons who are never nick without thinking tnem selves very much worse off thiia they really are. Of thin Haas w*? Mr? Hrakins. a young married lady, and the mother of two fine T><>yg. On one occasion, being visited with a fever, the ovmiequcnoe of imprudent exposure, she gave herself up to the tucUnehely fancies wlwh usually a*Miled her. aud persuaded herself that she ?u goin,; to die. Id conscqucnee of this melancholy pratenti meut she assumed so woe-begone an appear ance that even her medical attendant wm .-tartled into believing that she was really much Wv>r?e, from her sjmptoms than he ha I judged her to be. L uder these circumstance* he advised her to muko what earthly preparation she hud yet to make, while there was time to dw so. Mrs. lla^kins was an affectionate mother, and the thought of parting from her children, to whom she was so warmly attached, at ? thnc when, more than any other, they needed a mother's care, was peculiarly distressing. "Their father will be kind to th<-m. no doubt, and see that they are amply provided fur, but nothing that he oan do will supply t> them thu lobe ut a mother." Gradually the idea of a stepmother sug gested itself to tho lady's imagination, and such was her care for the happiness of her children that she became reconciled to an idea so repugnant to most wives, and actually be* gan to consider who, amoug her acquaintance*, was best titled V< become a second Mrs. Hoe kins. At length her choice fell upon a Miss Par kor, an intimate friend of her own Feeling anxi<>us to have this matter satisfactorily set tled. fhe dispatched a messenger, post-haatr, for Miss Parker, who, alter a brief interval, made her appearance at her friends bedside. " My dear friend." said Mrs. Huskins. in a feeble voice, " I have sent for you for what, p^rhap?# y< u will consider a slight reason. But oclieve me, it is a mother's anxiety for her children that prompts me. I am very sick, aud shall not live long. So the doctor tells me, and iny own feelings tell me that it must be no. The situation in which I shall leave my poor boys, who will thus be deprived of a mother's watchful care, distresses ine beyond measure There is only wr.y in which my anxiety can be relieved, and this it is which has prompted mc to send for you Promise me that when I am gone ywu will marry Mr. Hoskins, and be to them a second mother. Do not refuse me, it is my last request." Desirous of comforting her friend, Mitf Par ker assented to her request, adding: 441 will comply with your request and the more wiiliuglv, lor I always iked Mr. Hoe kins." ?'Always liked Mr. Hoskins!" exclaimed bis dying wife, raiding her.-elf on her elbow, h r fecliigs '?{ C 'i ju a'. je?b<u-y for a moment overpowering maternal affection, ' you always liked my husband, did you * Then I v< w yu shall never marry him. if I have to live to pre vent it.

There is an old saying, which, like most old sayings, has in it not a little truth, that "when a woman wills, she will, dopend on t; and when she won't, she won't, end there s an end on't." So it was in the case of Mrs Hoskiife She was determined that if Mr. Hoskins ever does have a second wife, it shall not be Mi.s* Parker.

"What-would you do witn your clothes and furniture, if you should die:* I should let Gorham (her husband) have them " "What would you do with that white bonnet of yours ?

Mblakcholt Death bt Dbowkixg.?On Wednesday afternoon (the Troy. N. Y., Whig of the 6th instant says) a number of quite small boys were bathing off Fish Island. Be fore they left the water they were joined by four larger boys, including* Charles Perkins The latter party had been in the water but a short time when tbey discovered that two or three of the smaller boys appeared to be struggling in the water and drowning. They immediately went after them, and Perkin* succeeded in bringing two boys to the surface after they had gone down. In this effort Per kins apparently became much exhausted, and was observed to be struggling; and as he let go one of the boy % w bote life he had saved, he himself went down to rise no more. Tha death of young Perkins cast a gloom over a wide circle of acquaintances. Domesticating Dki .ikexxbss.?The Fyra ' ouse Standard says that the quantity of liquor sold in that city, during Monday ana Tuesday was very greats?estimated at not leas thau twnty thousand gallons, which, averaging atone dollar a gallon, would amount to 530,?00. Owing to the demand for cheap liquors being greater than the supply, a larre quantity baa een manufactured, which, of course was vil lainous stuff. What a significant commentary (itexclaims) on the Maine law, and the loud-mouthed pro fessions of its advocates, these facts present! We venture to say that there are not a score of householders in this whole city, who hare not laid in a supply of liquore for future use. Albany Atlas.
