Thin wa* devoted almost exclusively fo literary pursuits, and tbe longevity of the difleient classes engaged in ? hem The le? Inter said tint one great reason for the unliealtliinr** of literary pursuits Is the habit o! those engaged in them to occupy one position for too long a time, and tbi? position, one in which the muscles are relaxed, tbe chest compressed, a d tbe bead bent forward and downward. I nder such circumstances breath ing Is difficult, and great relief is frequently ex perienced from a prolonged respliatlon Ano ther detriment to health arises from tbe habit of confining tbe mind for too long a period to one subject The faculties are thus overtasked, and the consequence is that the physical system is impaired It Is also frequently the case, the lectuier remarked, that the habits of literary men are in other respect# eriatic. They engaged with great ie?t in festivities, and many of them are intemperate A? a remedy for all tbose evils, the lecturer re commended tempera ce, *egular habits, and fre quent relaxation fioin labor Relaxation, he said, was imperative for the pre* vat ion of health and life, with every human being ; and he gave as a reason why some classes of merchants re tain vigorous health until a late period of life, and are still so successful in business that their habits of temperance and oft-repeated recreation of mind and body, prevents the rapid exhaustion of their vitality, and preserves boto their mental and physical systems from debilitation. Thus, while health of body is retained, the miud is kept in a condition at all times competent for tbe discbarge of whatever duties may devolve upon He did not. however, desire to be understood as saying that a life of leisure was promotive of lon gevity; for. fioin a comparison of the aveiage length of life among the privileged classes of England and thegeneial masses of the Knglisb people, tbe diflerence was by several years in fa vor of the former. He also took occasion to say that at different |>erlods In the history of F.ngland there vi as known to be a remarkable different *In tbe average longevity of the nobility and piivl leyed classes. He next alliid> d to the fact that among the sev eral classes of those engaged iu literary pursuits theie is a great difference iu the average length of life. Ina tabular statement prepared by Air.

Tbe lecturer next proceeded to particularize the habits of several well known authors, among whom were Byron, Hums, Bacon, Cowper, Jamiesou, Scott, and Lelbrstz; and concluded with some general rema ks relative fo what care should be used by students and literary men to guard aga<nst too great excitability of the nerve* This series of lectures would constitute a valu able book, and we cannot opiit expressing the hope that the author will publish thein at an early day.

It displaces, as a topic, tbe New Code, Lecompton, and the YVolcott case. Every body inquires of everybody "Did you see Ca mille?" "What do you think of Miss Heron V And everybedy is forced to admit?even they who protest against certain mannerisms of Miss Heron, and suggest Cherry Pectoral as a mollifler of Camille'* racking ana unpleasantly natural couyb,? that she is an actress of singular power. Our i#aders, or many of them, will remember Miss Heron onlv as the fragile, infantile, sweet faced young actress, who some year? ai;o was so graceful and pleasing upon tbe Doad* of the old National Theatre. Since then, she has developed into full womanhood. and comes before us now with round'd proportions, arrj the deep thrilling voice and tbe stately swe?p of the tragedy queen. As an intellectual peiformance her adaptation of ?? Camille'' will uotcomfxire with that brought out here by the Laura Keene company; but it is but fair to admit that it is twice as truthful to nature as the latter. The cha'acter of Catnille, as portray* d by Miss Heron last night, exercised an interest almost painfully intense upon every person?and the house was crowded?-In the theatre An actress who can do this has powers of a high order. A single performance, bow ever, does not justify us iu defining her precise histrionic *tnt*?, and this we d^fer until after seeing her in other parts whirb we are promised iu the tia^edies of "Medea" and " Pbipdra.'' now in rehearsal.

Master and M iss Pugh, and Withers" Baud; and then the floor was cleared and dancing entered upon with a <est which, when we left the room, threatened Its maintenance until the ".small hours ." What was near proving a fatal accident by tire, took place at the Kirkwood House last night. Miss Reiliy, daughter of Hon. Wilson Keilly, of Pa., was preparing to attend a hop at the Na tional, and in passing a tire In a grate ber ball dress caught 6 e and she was instantly envelt>|ted iu dimes Her screams brought her sister, Mrs. MrClue to her assistance, but whose d'es? was also of light texture, and both might have mst their death but for the prompt interposition of Mr. John N.Jones, of Wisconsin, who separated the ladie-, and throwing Miss Keilly u|kui the floor, succeeded in smothering theflarr.es. ML* Keilly, we regret to hear, Is very seriously burnt on thee ie?t a id arms, and Mr. Jones did not Ct catw* u .scathed. One of the proprietors has called upon us to request that we should deny the statement that tbe accident occurred by the explosion of a earn phene lump. No caiupbene lamps are, or have been, u?ed in the building, and the tire as above slated, caught from the grate.
