A large audience was entertained on Friday evening at the Smith sonian, l>vth? Inlroductive lecture on tb? "Etfect of Occupation on Health," by Dr J. Wynne, of New York. The lecturer remarked that although hi* subject would not allow of any rhetorical dis play, it Involved important Information The nn canity of labor is contort table to a iaiv*r?al and unavoidable decree of Divine Providence and the studjr of its influence on the physical or ganisation of man of great practical utility. It la true, that to a healthy peraon a proper afnoant of labor ia advantageous; but experience has ahown that health and sickness are liable to be alternate conditions of the system. Some provldeut people make provision while in health for their supco t when nick Thin la fequently done through the medium of beueticial associations, wblch the Uc turer regarded as important auxiliaries In pro moting the welfare of the people of any country. These societies, however, should lie conducted !n acco;dance with certain established lawa which govern health and mortality, for thus only can tliev be rendered permanent and efficient It was to the?e law* or health he desired to call atten tion. A resident in a neighborhoodcaunot point out who of hi* neighbors will be nick or die within a year; but lie may, with verv consider able certainty, tell bow many will lie sick art! how many will die if he has statistics of the health and mortality of the district for several yrV*;- societies. By consulting si.itist.c* of *m-b cbarartfr thevcan forma toler ably correct estimate of the health and mortality of their memliership. and thus be enabled to se cure their organization fioin any shortcomings in the.nMH.nts of benefits enuring to its members This truth has lieea recognized by life insur ance association, and from their statistics the computation of health and life has been rtduced to a science It was formerly thought (hat the chances of longevity were in favor of that class of society which Is most exempt from labor The Friendly Societies of England have dis proved this. Oeing chiefly composed of work ing men, tbev show that the average length of life among their membership, as compared with the average of the promiscuous population of England, is largely in their favor. Here the lec turer called attention to a tabular illustration of this compaiison. It Is also shown by these societies that among those employed in the various tranche* of in dustrial pursuits there is likewise a gr*at differ ence in the probabilities of a long life Some classes of mechanics dying at an average age considerably under that u( other classes. This he illustrated by a tabular statement, and ob served that between it and th* mo tality returns or the .-state of Massachusetts thete is a -^rikiniz similarity. The latter gives the average length of life of the several classes of citizens as fol lows : Judges,(17.19 years; agriculturists, 64.11; gen tlemen, Ki k|; millers, 61.5"; coopers oH tvl; law yers, 56 541; clergymen, 5rt5l; physicians, .15 natters, 5196; blacksmiths,; merchants, 5ti ??, butchers, 49 63; carpenters, 19 33; masons, 4. 01; cabinet makers, 47 (M. seamen, 45.49; la?Kir ers, 41.57; Stone cutters. 43 titi; shoe makers, 43 A'.; jewelers, 4*> 56; tailors, 4-? 51, glass blowers, 39 -Hi; printers, 3ti 55; cleiks.73 The lecturer said that it doe* not follow that the amount of si< kuess is proportionate to their d**giee of moiiality. Oa tbe contiary, some of those who die at the earliesi average ages a.e less liable to sickness than the longer lived Another table to which Dr \V. called atten tion, was iilustiative of the fact that as life ad vance*. after twenty years of a^e, the liability to sickness are increased, airtl the ratio of this iir iu propoitioii to the age. I he closing portion of his < was rela tive to mariiages. Marriages, like deaths, are conformable to certain laws, and although with out intention on the part of those who marry, they will occur al mtnin age* and under certain ci:cuiustances. The time in the year for marriages also comes within the jurisdiction of certain rules or habits. In .Massachusetts the fewest numlMtr occur in March and the greatest In November, winJe in Kentucky the greatest nnrnher occur in December. This, he thought, was probably owing to the festival seasons of rhanlcsgivint; in the tlrst and Christina* in the last named f*:ate. Females are fifteen tunes more apt to marry under twenty years of age than in .Us; between twenty and twenty-five the chances aie nea-ly even, and over twent'vflve the chances preponderate i.i favor of the males. 1'he aveiage ages at which marriages occur in different count lies vary, lu Belgium it is at twenty-nine years for miles, and twenty-seven for females; in Massachusetts, at twenty-live for the former and twenty-two Tor the latter; and in Kcutur ky, at twenty-thiee for the former and twenty-one tor the latter. As a general ruiemtr riages take place at an earlier age as the couutries are situated farthest south lu this climate, the lecturer said, a w orn in at twenty yen* of age ha* already lost one fourth of her chances of matrimony. Mr. Wynne had a large audience agi-lu last evening, and delivered a very interesting dis course, which we will hereafter notioe more at length He also lecture* again to monow even ing.
