VOL. X. WASHINGTON, D. C., THURSDAY, JULY 23, 1857. , THE MAD DOG. [Froin '? Dink*. May hew and Hutchinson on ? ne Dog," edited by Frank Forester.] The dog i? naturally the most nervous of all the dumb tribe. His intense affection, his nat ural jealousy, hia method of attack, the blind ness of his rage. an<I his insensibility to conse quences, all bespeak a creature whose nervous ?jsteui is developed to tho highest possible de gree. I myself once had a little cur, who, as I was reading, would enter the apartment, jump upon my kuee. uttering a low whimper all the time, creep along my waistcoat, rub his little body against my head and face, lick tho hand lifted up to return his caresses. and then seam ier off, and perhaps not come near me again the whole of that aftcrn-on. What was this but an affectionate impulse seeking a nervous development ? The way to uianago an animal of this description is, to respect his evident cx citability. The instant a dog appears to be get ting excited, there shuul 1 be a sign given, com manding a stop to !>e put to all further proceed ings. If the respect of the animal be habitual, the person who mildly enforces it may enter a ru<-in, where the same d<>g is in a rabid state and come forth unscathed. I have hitherto been among dog?, an 1 never* thelcss. have almost escaped being bitten. The reason is. that I understand and resist the in nate nervousness of the animal. When I go into a room, if there be a doj? there and he growl. I speak kindly to him. and theu seat myself, and bestow on him nono of my attention for some time. My request to his master or mis tress is, that he or she will not check or stop the symptoms of his wrath, but allow him to vent his rage until he is ashamed of it, and from a teeling of remorse is sileut. When this takes place, and a sufficient time hag passed to con firm him in the new method into which ho has recently entered, I approach him with my hand extended and open ; ?his I bring near to him by degree*, avoiding all sudden movements or any thing that may provoke his natural disposition. Generally ho crouches, then I speak to him in tones of encouragement. If ho displays his warlike propensity, I still bring the hand nearer and nearer to hiui. telling hiui to bite it if ho please, if he is not ashamed to injure that which means to do him good. Then, perhaps, he will make a snap at my extended hand, which is not upon this with drawn. or the jaws would close with nervous violence, but allowed to remain, and the teeth to touch tho skin without wounding it. I allow him to hold the hand fur any length of time he please?, telling him he would lose his character if he were to harm it. That he is a courageous dog, and mean- no hurt; he w.juld be a?hamcd to bite." And with this kind of speech, which the may not literally understand, but the sense and purpose of which he nevertheless appears to understand. I seldom fail of getting my hand safe and sound from thecreature s jaws. After that I may pat him for an intimacy ha* begun He allows mo to drag him forth. take him on my knees, and permits me any liberty I plca?o to take. I do not uttribute my e. cane to any charms that I possess; but account for it simply by knowing and respecting the natu ral temperament of the beast. This natural respect lor the feelings of a most affectionate creature, with such a power of ob servation oj will enable the individual to rec ? ?gnizo tho prc.-cnco of lamentablo sickness in an animal that has with truth been called ''the companion of the house," shall at ull time3 en able the uneducated in such matters to recog nise a mad dog. and, unlessluck bodead against the individual, save him from being bitten. It is no plea, urc to a dog to go mad. Quite tho reverse Dreadful as hydrophobia may be ti> the human being, rabies is worse to the dog. If makes its approach more gradually. It lasts longer and is more intense while it endures. The dog that is going mad. feels unwell for a l"ng timo prior to tho full development of the disease lie is ?.?rv ill, bat he does not know what ails him. Ilo feels nasty; dissatisfied with every thing; vexed without a reason; and, greatly against his Ivttcr nature, very snappish. Feeling thus, he longs to avoid all annoyance by being alone. This makes him seem strange to those who are most accustomed to him The sensation induces him to seek solitude. Hut there is another reason which decides his choice of a resting place. Tho light inflicts upon him the most intense agony. 'The sun is i" him an instrument of torture, which he therefore studies to avoid, for his brain aches and leuls as if it were a trembling jelly. This induces the j?our bru:o to ?:id out the holes and corners where he is least likely to be noticed, und into which tho light is unable to enter. In solitude ami darkness he passes the day. If l:is retreat is discovered and the master's voice bids him to come forth, the affectionate crea ture's countenance brightens, hu tail beats the gr>und. and he leaves his hiding-place, anxious 10 obey the loved authority ; but before he has g ?ue halt the distance a kind of sensation comes over him, which produces an instantaneous change in his wh<?lo uppearancc. He seems to .'ay t?> himself. ?? Why can't you let me alone ? Go away. Do go away. You trouble, you pain me. An I thereon he suddenly turns and darts back into his dark corner. If let alone, there he will remain; perhaps frothing a. little at the m >uth, and drinking a great deal of water, but not i*uing from his hiding place to -*cek after f-*->d His apjnstites are altered ; hair, straw, dirt, filth, excrement, rags, tin shavings, stones, the most noisome and unnatu ral substances are then the delicacies for which the j-oor d"g. changed by disease, longs for and swallows, in hope to case a burning stomach lie is now altogether changed. Still he docs not desire to bit<- mankind : he rather endeavors to avoid society; he takes long journcyiof thir ty or forty miles in extent, an l lengthened by al! kinds of accidents, to vent his restless desiie for inotion When on these journeys he docs n ?t walk. Ttiis would be t??o formal and meas ure t a paje tor an animal whose whole frame quivers with excitement. Ho docs not run. 1 bat would bo too great an excrtiou for an ani mal who-c l>?ly is the al*>de of a deadly sick ness ||<' proceeds in a slouching manner, in a kind of trot ; a movement neither a run or walk, and h's a-pect is dejected. His eyes do cot glare and stare, but ttiey are dull and re tracted. His appearance is very charactcristie, and if once seen can never afterwards bo mis taken In this state ho will travel the most dusty roals. his u>n^uc hanging dry from bis open mouth, from which however, there drops no foam. lli' c 'ur >cn .t .-traight How could it be. onco it h doubtful whether at this pcri'xl he sves at all' His desire i< to journey unnoticed. It no oiiu notices him hu gladly passes by them Ho is very ill. He cannot stay to bite, it. n?*i erthcle anything opposes his progress, ne will, by iuipulae. cRap?.ij a man lu a simi lar state might striko?and tell the person to get out of the way II?? may take his road across a field ill which there i< a tlock of sheep. Could the*e creatures only niako room tor him, and i *tand motionless, the dog would pass on and leave them behind uninjured. Lut they begin t > run. and at the sound the dog3 pricks up. His entire aspect changes Uagc takes posses sion ol him What ma le that noise' lie pur sues it with all the energy of madnc**'. Ho flics "t one. then at another He does not mangle. ; n >r b his b?te. simply considered, terrible. He ? annot pause to tear the creature lie has caught. ? He snaps and then rushes onward, till, fairly j t xhauste l und unable longer to follow, he sinks 1 "? >wn. and the sheep pass forward to bo no more ' molested. He may have bitten twenty or thirty ' in his mi 1 onslaught, and would have worried 1 inoro had his strength lasted, for tho furor of 1 maine^j then had |>osocsMon of him lie may bo slain while on these excursions; but if he eica|>cs he returns h-mie and ?eeks the darkness and quiet of his f rmer abode. His , thirst increases, but with it conies the swelling of tho throat. He will i.iungo his head into ?ne water, so ravenous is his desire; but not a dron of the liquid can he swallow, though its ! surface is covered with bubbles in couaequenee of the eB jrt he makes to gulp the smallest quan tity The throat is enlarged t? that extent which will permit nothing to pass. He is the victim of the most horrible inflammation of the stomach, and the most intense inflammation of the bowels. His state of suffering is most pitiable. Ho has lo3t all self-reliance; even feeling is gone. He flie3 at and pulls to pieccs anything that is within his reach Ono animal in this condition, being confined near a (ire. flew at the burning mas?, pulled out the live coal?, and in hi* tury scrunched them. lie emits the most hideous cries. The noise he makes is incessant and pe culiar. It begins a3 a bark, which sound, being too torturing to be continaed. is quickly changed to a howl, which is suddenly cut short in tho middle; and so the poor wretch ut last falls, fairly worn out by this terrible disease.

Decrease is theNlhuek ur Hokses in the West.?When railroads were first instituted in was feared by many thatthc rear ing ot horses?at that time a great sourcoof pro tit to the farmer?would be greatly injured by breaking up the market for stage horse? liut while the demand for horses has fallen off in this respcct, the railroads have opened a new and important branch of trade to the fanner, more profitable than that of rearing horses. We refer tobeef-cattlc. Before railroads were established, cattle in tho West brought hut a small price to enable the drover to meet the expense of a long jouruey on foot to the eastern market, and com pete with e i-tern-rejired cattle. Now they can {>o carried so speedily and at so small a price, that cattle arc reared to >i great exteut, to the neglect of horses. The rearing of mules has also hid much to do with the decrease in the number of hordes in the country, until the price of g<*>d horses has advanced, within ten years, one or two hundred per cent. We have no data at hand to ascertain the com parative nnmber of horses now in Kentucky or Sli-souri with any former t>criod, hut there is evidently a large falling off. llut from the re turns of the Assessors of Ohio to the State Aud itor's oflicc, it is ascertained, that within tho last threo years, the falling off in the number ol horses in that State is upwards of 11,000. In lM4Lthere were 632.598. In 1855,there were 62L7U6. In 1*56, the number is reduced t<> 5'.i1.11-1 The number will ptill be diminished the present year, not only by tho regular trade, but the great demand and high price In the new West will draw oil all that can be spared ?

DR. LOOMIS, the inventor and patentee of "Loom*a' Mineral Plnte Tff th," haviug. successfully introduced his improvement in* various cities, has now permanently estab lished himself in Washington. This improvement for Sets ol Teeth consists chief ly in making a set of but ono piece ol material, and that indestructible mineral. No metal is used in their construction, and th*y are therefore free from galvauic action and metalic taste. There are no joints to become filicd with moisture or particles of food, hence they are pure nnd rltan. They are lighter, stronger, less ciumsy, far more durable, and natural in their appearance. I will give a reward of One Thousand Dollars toanyone who will produce a similar work of art to equal mine in purity, !?cauty. durability, artistic excellcnce or any other requisite quality.
