Ia so doing plaintiff was struck by tho dashboard of the rear platform (by which he was leaving the car), knocked down on the pavement, and sustained a double fracture of his left arm.

It would appear to be a universally jnc Ived rule among thia people that whenever, from any cause, an article bocomes scarce in market, and in conseqaenoe thereof, or for any other reason, commands a high prion, every dealer la at liberty to introduce to public notice and to preaa upon publlo attention a commodity of inferior quality, and, oftentimes, spurious altogether, bearing the same designation and asserted by Its Tenders to possess the sarao qualities as those that appertain to the particular thing which, because of it* costllneea, is beyond the reach of the multitude. Especially is this the rase with all articles that are classed under the bead of "necessaries of Mfe." When these reach an exor bitant figure, inventive genius is set to work to produce substitutes that are disponed of at much leas prices than tbe real article, while, in making sales, dealers represnt them to be the "genuine originals." Thus, when, shortly aftar the Iale war was betrun, and specie became rearee as the weeks relied by, cloths of all kinds oould be purchased only by paying fifty, one hundred, or two hundred per centum more than was the ruling price in ante bellum times, the market became inundated with ??shoddy," and speedy fortunes wore road* by sales of It. To tlie fact that the wearing of flg leaves trlitaire was not re garded as exactly tbe mode of dress in this age and country, and that a custom so Bden-Uke oould not well be revived, many a mover in the bsau mnrde to-day owes lit! fashionable status and high flaan'.lal standing. Clothing must be bad ?cloths ruled high, and tbe stock in market wa^ slim; but aboddy suppl ed the de mand. And a vlllanous supplv it was, as n?ny, espec ially among the poor privates In the army, have to remembor. Then, too, eo.Teo reached an enormous figure; but the dealers in that article filled tbe market with a compound hoaring that name, which by Us large sales must have (greatly enhanced tho value of beans and chicory. Liquors and wines became inordinately costly; but villianous adulterations, entitled cognac, Hol lands aad port, were dispensed for a dime per glass; and tbe people bought and drank and?died 1 So it has been and is with almost everything that usually enters Into one's list of purchases. Spurious manufac ture or illegal adulteration is employod to ra'.lsfy the publlo demand for articles of food and raiment, and so long as tbe present high rates are aaked for all that one eats and wears, Just so long will these manufactures and adulterations be contlnned; Just so long will 'he masses who purchase keep aldln? tbe dealers (the <tls Mionest ones) to grow rich by the sales of their deceitful compounds, tho' are always palmed off as the verities of those commodities the names of which they bear. But probably there is nothing among tbe e/ery day purchase* of the family adulterated to so great an ex. tent at the present time, and nothing warding the adu toratlon of which tbe multitude understand so little, ' as tea. "Taking tea" has come to be with ns a term of peculiar homely significance. "Tbe cup which ex hilarates but Intoxicates not" is our most universally received panacea for composing tho mind and the nerves after we have, during the working hours, fretted our selves with tbe cares and troubles of the over active business world. Too may Invite a friend to dine, even, without committing yourself as ontertalnlng for blm a atronger regard than is summed up ta an admiration for M fine social qualities;" but aranredly he bas an inner hold on your affection, whose presence you solicit at your tea table. Though a less ostentatious and less substantial m?al than dinner, "tea" partakes mora of home-like attri butes; and whilstM the former tbe head of the house hold assumes the ooMtion of dignity, and dispenses the viands at the latter bis "better hair' and sweet eon solar reigns supfeme, and directs unchecked (to use a reportoria! phrase) "tbe proceedings incident to tho oc casion " hi order that (he Hi*au> readers may form some adequate idea of tin manner in which spurious teas are made up for market, and that they may not flatter themselves that so des'reble an article can be bought promiscuously (it should never ha purchased save from a dealer In whose honesty one ha* the most reliable conftdouce), tbe foil?wing facts are submitted: ?

These were taken to the factories, mixed Willi a solution of gum and redrled. After this the dried leaves. If for Murk tea. were mixed with rose pink and black lead, to faoe them, as H is termed by the trade. This very system, described by Mr. Phillips, la being peaci I-ed to a very greet extent in Hew York to-day; and In addition thereto tbe most deleterious compounds are-made ap and sold under namea belonging to tbo aeveral klnda nf Mack aad green leas.

Of oourse our poorer clasps suffer most from tlie snle of thee* poisons, f?r the reason that they have n^t the means to purciiore tho teas of higher and more co?tly kind; and it is to sup ply the vast demand of this eta s of our people (hat tbeso bogus teas aro thrown Into market. In '-.lay or June of last year, we believe It was that this snhpet was brought to the notice of tho Hoard of Health, and a seizure was made of a factory up town whore the villainous stuff was being concocted, and where large quantities of black lead were used m coloring material. The general law Is so tax, however, that under It no rpecial remedy can be employed to punish with sufficient severity the par ties whose cupidity loads them to embark in this nefa rious manufacture* or troffh!. It will be recollected that In addition to the increase in winch naturally affcctcrt all articles at the outbreak of the war, tea U rendered still more nostly by the imposition of a hl<h nff duty, which fact affords greater ??oi>e for the inanu I elere and snle of tho l>aso Imitations thai aro contlou ally io 1 ng the market. As an indox of the ureal de mand, even for genuine teas, we may mention that tho iinrorts In 186fl of uncolored Japans alone, were live million six hundred thousand pounds; of Oolongs, nine mi'.I on Ave hundred tliou-and pounds. Of black toas of all kinds ouo mlHIon eight hundred thousand pounds more were Imported In 1MW than in IMS. In Groat Btitaln, even b?'or? tho subject was present ed to l'urHament, and a committee ot iuve.?tigiuion ap pointed, as we have above mentioned, tho adulteration or tea was a matter mod* pitninbable by law, fivon ns far ba' k as the time of Goorg* I., shortly alter tho arti cle was Introduced Into England, it was found &?cossary to framo a statute respecting it The Parltum nt accordingly enactcd Second (loorge I., chap SO, Mr. i?"That the dealer In tea. or tnanufae turer, or dyer thereof, who shuil counterfeit or adulterate tea; or shall alter, fobrlcato or mtnufa-tura it with Una Japmsa, or with any other drug or drug* whatsoever; or shall mix wi'h tea any leaves other thnn leav s of taa. or oilier ingredients whatsoever, shall forfeit the sum of one hundred pouuds sterling." This law Is stilt in force. Undor It seizures were msd ) In !.ondon and ia Manchester as laM as 1S4.1 and 1813, and the vigilance with whioh It is carried out has done RKtch to prevent the manufacture and sale of the poi sonous decoctions that aro nightly present ou tho tea tables of our poorer cla sou.
