By Job Printing of every description executed with dispatch. F. Tracy, Traveling Agent, COMMUNICATIONS. From an Occasional Correspondent. Richmond, May Xu, 1804. To Ike Editor of the Ports. You will oolice iu the Advertiser of May 14tli, a communication from this town which needs overhauling, iso far as the business of the place is concerned, the writer is very cor rect, hut other matters are altogether out of “square.” Aud first, his popular Advertiser. Bui perhaps the writer had reference to its popularity in Richmond, Virginia, for I am iolormed by tlie Post Master that there are thirty weekly Advertisers sent to this Office, about one-balf of which are nottakeu from tlie Office, a bushel basket full at the end of each quarter having to be tied up aud laid on the shelf. There are thirty-six copies of the weekly Press distributed at the Office, gen erally within two hours after the mail is open ed, so eager are our citizens lor a good loyal paper. And, by the way, Mr. Editor, I think your list of subscribers might be doubled beie if an Agent for the Press would drop down among us, as you have never had an Agent here. Now as for our Public Houses. We have the “ Fountain House,” a “ quiet, orderly” and long-established house, kept by Harrison Springer, Esq., who spreads before his patrons all the luxuries the market affords, hut who is no friend to that article so essential to the happiness of editors of many copperhead pa pers, viz, “ Medford The proprietor of the Richmond House, recently indicted aud fined for openly violating the laws of our State, not liking the “ style, cioeed the concern, aud all well wishers to tlie good of the community say “ amen.” Our selectmen iu their efforts to stop up the rum holes, were backed by a very large petition, embracing our best citizens, who are determined hereafter that the “ critter” shall take the defensive. This same board of selectmen we have elected Cor years, ee to-tl h. fce..Ulng ttlewinrr in the Advertiser speaks of the new hoard.— This year they were elected by an average majority of fllteen. We have generally given them a much larger majority, but it being a foregone conclusion that they would be elect ed, the “ abolitionists'' were a little backward in coming out. But we will inform the writer that we intend to elect just such men town officers as will look to the welfare of the town in respect to rum-drinking aud gambling, wine-bibbers and rum-sympathizers to the contrary notwithstanding. W. Alcoholic Stimulant* in Fevers. To the Editor of tke Press. Under the head “Original and Selected”! noticed, a few days ago, iu the Press, a state ment that a spirited discussion was going on In England, with reference to alcoholic stimu lants m fevers, Ac. If such a discussion had arisen in this country, where men often re ceive tlie title of M. I). with but a very super ficial knowledge of the sciences on which the healing art is lounded, I should not have been surprised at it, but that the faculty in England where every one is required to learn his trade before being allowed to practice it, should have falleu into so unscientific a practice as to elicit such a discussion surprises me beyond measure. The use of alcohol iu fevers is about as ra tional a practice as it would be to endeavor to put out a fire by tbrowiug pitch upon it, as 1 will attempt to show. The living animal organism la in a perpetu al slate of decay and renovatiou. The waste is supplied in the food, while the product of decay is consumed in the system, by combin ing with oxygen, aud is eliminated by ex piration, perspiration, Ac., as caibonic acid gas. vvuen, irom inaction or imperiect acnou o any ol the excretory organs an undue accu mulation of waste matter occurs in the sys tem, nature makes an effort to remove it, and this effort, or rather the excitement incident to this effort, is what we call lever. A fever therefore is a manifestation cf the recupera tive energies of nature. This waste matter is carbon, and requires oxygen to consume it. Alcohol is carbon, and more readily combines with oxygen than does this matter; the product of decay, which Is designed by nature to be consumed in the sys tem, and sustain the animal beat. The quantity oHixygen that can he taken into the system is limited, and if there is more carbou than can combine with that quantity, tile energies of nature become exhausted,and organic disease and death are the inevitable results. Hence the lamentable mortality Which follows in the wake of those physicians who have adopted the alcoholic practice, to the exclusion ol all, or nearly all therapeuti cal agents. M Kimes. The New President ol Columbiu College. Dr. Barnard was yesterday elected by the Trustees of Columbia College President of that institution, to surcerd Dr. King, who has resigned the place. Dr. Barnard is au Kpisco pal clergyman, whose high personal character and large scientific attainments are a pledge that be will discharge the duties of his new office faithfully and ably. He is a native of {Sheffield, in Massachusetts, and one of the northern men who at the begiuniug of the present war, found themselves settled in the' rebel States. He was then President of the Mississippi University, aud such was the high opinion of his abilities entertained by Jeffer son Davis, that he offered to create a Depart ment of Ordnance for him and place him at the head of it—a proposal which, of course, was rejected. He was refused a pass to return to the North, and after enduring much sutler log, only found his release by happening to lie at Norfolk when that place fell into our bauds. Columbia College has honored science and loyalty in the choice of Dr. Barnard.—|N. Y. Post. Navigation Taught — BT — T. 13. PARSONS, — AT — No. 12, Deer Street, Portland.
