Burnlug the Dead The sprightly Parts corresponds of the New York Times .ays . The subject of burning the dead Mill occu pies the public attention, George Sand end Ltmarlino have given in their adhesion to the f r ject. Madame Sand exjresies her opinion very ttgongly in favor of it; the wishes to be burat~:iU opinions are respectable; let her be burnt therefore. As for other defuncts, it would be well at letui. to have their opibk.a beferc proceeding to change the present state of things For myself, to rot in one common earth, or to be barnt into rshes and sealed in an urn decorated with a label anauuncing my name, place of birih, qualities, etc., eto ? these two alternatives seem to me equally de void of charm, and pluuge me into melancholy lor the present I bequeath the subject to my heirs But another plan is proposed for disposirg of the dead?a plan whicti is cleaner, more elogant and more chemical. ilj means of a hideous paraphernalia of crucibles, alembics, exhausters and poisons, the bodj is auseepti ble of being reduced to ao indefinitely small solid substance, of which a ring may be made in variegated colors to wear around tha finger The di.-cousidate wife or husband can thus preserve the souvenir of a dear departed part ner to the end of their lives ; and if the bur. den of their grief ah >uld push them to a de sire to j tin the lost one. they would have but t?crusn the ring and swallow its pieoes in or d?r to rcroinpli-h a hasty and we suicide This mourning by chemistry this petrifaction by death, has soire hingso fantastic about it thit one caunot avoii a certain titillation of curiosity in talking of it.

Th*re is still another process, which I only mention tor the benefit of future historians. Au eccentric Frenchman who filled, a few years aco, the tcnctions of a dr gnu an at one if tho large cities of the Oriont. coLceived the fcroeiovr idea of making of the venerated ekin of his w if-j an article of wearing apparel, which I should inme in Latin if 1 knew whit the Romans called breeches. But the process is savage. This species of sentimental tannery would have tho air of iror.i:al reprisals. Ui'inT hvr.D.?1 am inclined to believe that most person.", when they gase upon a near ob ject with both eyes open, habitually neglect the image formed by the left eye, and employ that of the right to fix the visual direction?in fact, that we are right-eyed. Moreover, that cases sometimes cccur whrre the left eye is u-ed for this purpose, and in such exception-l instances the ibservers may |be formed left eyed. A boy shoots marbles with both eyes open, and a sportsman not unfrequently bring" down his game in the Fame manner; but 1 ap prehend that, in both instances, the aim is a. truly taken a* if one eye was shut; and that either the right eye or tholef* gives the range while the other is passive. if it is true that the right eye, under the circumstances mentioned, poaassei a superior ity over the other, the fac: wiuld be in strict a;c>idricce with some other physiological phe - nomcui We are all aware of tho pre emi nence whish the right hand has over the left, either from habit or otherwise llow mu'h more ready nnd quick it is in all its motions, being the fir*t to advance whenever the hand is needed So marked is this characteristic thit we term expertces? and activity of mani pulation dexterity. Right-bandedners con stitutes the law; left handedness the excep tion The -aae fact is observed in respect to thefeet In the game of foot ball, for instance, the right foot naturally comcs first into play, and is decidedly more active than the other. The superiority of one organ of vision over the other would Lot, therefore, constitute an anomaly, neither would it be surprising if the s.ime phenomenon should be found to exist in respect to one or more of the other senses ? Ptuj. Hiorltlsyy. DnixKiso at Dinner ?Not seldom do we hear the opinion advanced, that drinking dur ing a meal is an obnoxious habit; but quite wrongfully; for the gastric juice may be dil uted with a considerable quantity of water without losing its dissolving power in the slightest d*Lrree. Only a superabundance of water would diminish or arrest the pecuiiir action of the matters contained in the diges tive fluids Large draughts of water, there fore. will be the most injurious with aliments difficult of digestion, like the fat; and hence the drinking of too uiuch water after fat pork, for instance, is properly avoided; but in coun tries where .ioup does not constitute a rentier part of the mca!, drinking water is positively to he commended. Bear and wino at dinner are also hurtful only if taken in excess; for in the latter case the alcohol coagulates the al buminous substances, not only of the food, but also of the digestive fluids, and then disturbs digestion. If taken in a moderate quantity, these beverages are calculated to cause tho meal to hold out longer: for the fact that we are not no eon n hungry again after a meal with wine than if we have taken only water with it, is to bo accounted for by the slower c^m oustion of the constituents of our body, inat much as the alcohol we imbibe takes possess ion ot inhaled oxygon llence, wine ^wiih a meal is extremely useful when a long journey or work in hand renders it impossible to take food again r.t the usual time; bo much the more so. as such detention from food itself usually causes an acceleration of the metam orphosis of the tissues, whieh beer and wine efficiently obviate ?Orr's Chemistry of hood arid Ditl. ?
