There csn be no question that Judge Vfn IIieien*k opinion was an able and learned one, so for as it related to the right of every citizen ,to oain and oper ate BO infan(. tie admitted fh^t infants are noisy, but be ruled that fini keeping of infants is not u;),reasonable, and bence that tbeir noise is not legally a nuisance and cannot be abated by nn injunction. No nun would have a right to keep a room full of cats whose yells disturbed the neighbors, because exce.'a in is unreasonable. Ii'faots, on the cooli'ary, arc like ihia elevated railroad. They arc noisy but they are necessary, and no matter how many of them a man may keep, be cannot be said to be unrrasonable. Thus far^ Judge Van Hoescn was cIcArly right, and his exposition of the law of Jnl'anl;! wus ipasteriy. But he failed to per- cei«e that tbe barefooted eJI.egirnt of tbe case called for separate cunsideration. The coroplainjyn^ had avowed that not only did the defeudaut keep a noisy iu- fant, but tha^t t^e defeoduni’s wife was in the habi/t of walking up and down the barefooted with the infant in hir arqif, ^nd that the noise thus made in.tiilerable. Ifud it been shown that the care of hifants necessarily in volved the use of barefootud uiothers, the court would have been righ^ in ruling that no iijunctiou against bare feet could issue. Thi;, however, was not proved, and Judge Van Huejsen, doubtless through inadvorteiice, h^is impliedly ruled that a voluntarily bare footed mother is not a nvuance. Until this decision ^ reversed, it will be the law of this State, and it wnuld be diffi- calt tn overcBiioie.le the ;evil consequen ces wbicb may Bnw ffoni U. ft is a physiological fact—if the testi. inony of co.uiitless intelligent and hon est witnessey is to be believed—that the female of o;ir species quadruples her weight when she removes her shoes and stockings, fiet us lake, for example, a mother who, when fully dressed, weighs one hundred and fifteen pounds. Add to thjs a baby weighing Cfieen pounds more, and tbe combined 7eigh|t of tbe two will be one hundred «n(| thirty pounds. This mother can walk across the fljor with the child io her arms, and, provided she wears shney, or even slippers, her w,eight will not j»r a single article of furnit|(r.e.. Kuw let her walk in ptecifcLy the same way, but with bare feftj «nd the whole bouse will rock to it* foundations. JVof. Huxley made a most interesting series of experiments in coonection with this subject. He found tbat the ejttent of the deflection of the .fluoc.beitms and of tbe .ratling of win dows Bud lamp shades, caused by Mrs. Hu;i|ejr when walking across the room in her street dress, was very elight—«o slight, indeed, that the weight of Mrs. Huxley being one hundred and thirty pounds, he representied the disturbance jibuf caused VA eqval {to one hundred an^ ^b^jty ^nits of shake. When, however, she waijked across the room without shoes, the rattliog of windows, crockery, picturerfrauici, and lamp shades was frightful, and the walls of the Douse visibly «wayed. The amount of disturbance In ttiis case was fully equal to Qye hundred and twenty uniU of shake^ or ' to be precise, to five •nd tweetfMHi* and one.bBlf uoita.. ‘.'Tbe C4use of this remarkabis difference,'” re.- marks tbe Professor^ "is of course, doe to an increase of ^eight^ b.vt wjby tbe weight of the bgman female should be qufdrapled by oiiore act of remor Ug^e shores is yet ynknowo, end inquiry tbe sulqect is (raught with much danger.*’ i[t is evident that there is io this res pect a great diSereDce in tbe ae^ces. When nan renovea bis boots^ bs for example when he undertakes to go up ataira quietly lyt a late hour ip tbe nigbt, be .treads noiselessly, eod his weight is andoabtedly decreased. It is true tbat ,^beD ,in coaditioo ba will walk ygaiiitt more furniture than he ever imagined that the house could contain; but his tread is nevertheless light. Woman, on the pontrsry, so experts in fuiros US, waara thicksoled sheet wb*n she ciimas home laie from b cknrcb sociable, and the sharptstreared bus, bsnd nr father cannot bear her glide over the fl inr. It is when she is bare footed that the eartb treosblel under her treads, and aneaty sleepers half a mile away swaken suddenly under the ini: pression thot an earthquake ia in progr ress. Where 1‘rof Huxley has failed, other men need not try to succeed and to inquire into the cause of this tremen- duu« increase of weight would bp a mere luss uf time. Nor, an infant of whatever age can be operated without calling into action a barefooted niKthiT. It is true that wheie ail infant’s works arc seriously out of order, the best re>o'*dy is for some one t" carry j( ^hi)(! walking rapidly up jiid down tba room, but can always be done either by a man if there is one within reach—ur by a woman in slippers, [n the ctist uf tho infant against whom an iijucictiiin was soiicht,' the conduct of thu mothers who walked up and down the fl>)or barefooted, was as unnecessary as it wia dangcriius. She might have put on her slippers, or even Tier hus: baud’s boots thus bent her weight within proper limits, had she .chosen « i to do, and there cannot he a shadow uf defpnse for her neglect uf so easy a preven tive. ■Judge Vau |{nesen can now see what ha has done. He has thrown the pro* tection of the la^ Kound every reckless woiu^n who may venture to risk the eafety of the house in which she lives by v.^.lking barafooted with one or more inl'anij in her arms. If this sort of thing becomes general, we bad better have an earthquake at once, and so end our misery. Uoe by one (he hoifsts of this City will be shaken jnto rifint No matter how solidly they may be built, they cann it bear the tremendous weight of barefooted women. The cog^plain.- ant in the baby-carriage case should at once apply tn another court, and have Judge Van lloesen’s decision as to the necessity and lawfulness of barefooted women jteversed. THE ORiaiN Of MOSQUITOES. The Red Uiver Indians have b curi ous legend resprcting the origin of mos- qujtoes. They say that once upon ^ time there was a famine, and the Indians could get no game. Hundreds had died from l^u' ger, and desolation hileijl tbeir country. All kinds of offerings were made tn the Ureat Spirit without avail, until one day two hunters came vpoo a white wolverine, a very rare aoimal Upon shooting the white wolverine, an old woman sprang oyt of the skin, and sayli'g that she was a .‘'^)auitl,” promised ^ j^o and live with the Indiana, promismg thei^ plenty of game as long as they treated her well and gave her the first choice of all the game that was brought in. The two Indians assented to this, and took tbe old woumn homo with them, which event was immediately succeeded by an abundance ol game. When ;Ljie sharp ness of the famine passed io the prosperity whjjch the old woman had brougli^ the tribes, the Indians became daii^y in their appetites, and complained of the manlier in which the old woman toob tu herself the choice bits; and this feeling became so intense, that notwith standing her warning that if they violated their promise a tcr^Jble calamity would come upon tbo Indians, they qne day killed her as $he was seiz ing her share ol ^ reindeer wbjcb the hunter had brought in. Qreat cons.tern^tion immediately Btruclk the witoesfes of the deed, and the Indians, to e^ape th.e predicted .calamity, bodily struc|( tj^eir tents and moved to a gr.eat distance. Time passrd on without any catastrophe occurring, and game becoming even more plentiful, the Indians began to laugh at their being deceived by the old wiiiq^n. Finally, a hunting party on a long chase of a reindeer, which bad led them back to |tbe pla^a where the old woman bad b.c;en killed, came upon her skeleton, and one of tjheni in derisioii, kicked tbe skull with bis foot. In an ins,tant b SQiall, spiral, vspor-like body arose from the ey.ei^ f nd ears of the |>udy, wl'.in^proved to bo i.ps'ects, that ^t^ckei ji,he huut.vs with great fury, apd drove .them to the jriver for protect* tioif. The sJcvilcoDtioued to. pore out its liule stream, and the air became full of avengers of the old womau’s death. Tlie hunters, on returning to camp, found tbe Indians sufisring terri bly from the plague and ever since that time tbe Indians have been punished by tbe mosquitoes for their wickednefs to tbe/r preserver, the Klai^ito. 4 My .bad lost her husband, but sbe bad left off her mourning and vent to parties, ^eing asked by one of those gentlemen who attended soirees, as loo.- dinms, who she woujd like to see in spirit, and having replied, .‘.‘My peor James,” the departed Suddenly rose out of the centrp of the csrpet, as it were, and stood before the whole company. *tOh I James, tell me are you happy if” ••yery.'’ ”Are you happier ^ojr than unben on earth:*' vMueh happier.” ■>Theo, Jamea., you aaust b« in beavaD?" “No; I’m io bell.” My dear, do yon notice bow green and basutiful .the grass loukv.*’ lUopoetio spouse- Wall what color would you ex. psGt it tf.be,this time ,9! vear-yi^lu | A TMMPt PHILOIOPHY.

He stood firm ip bjs position, his aotion and grace seemed to be from the knee up. His voice was that of a welltoned flageolet, the key conversational, though often swelled to iis utmost compsss.” TOO FUNNY VORANYTHINO. Sonic time ago there was a dancing party given a certain neighborhood io Tefas, and most of the ladies present hsd little babies, whose noisy perversity required too much attention to permit the iniitheis to eiij.iy the daoce. A number of gallant young men voun- teered to mind the young ones while thu parents indulged io an old Virginia breakdown. No sooner had the women left the babies in charge of tba mi^chiev. ous fellows than they (tripped tbe babies, changed th,pi;- jclothes, giving the apparel of oue to another. The dance over, it was time to go home, and the n>»th«rs hurriedly too^ efch a baby in ill the dress of her own and started, some tn their homes, ten or fifteen miles off. and were far on their way before daylight. Bat the day following there was a tremeiidouB row in the settlement. Mothe.rs discovered that a single night had changed the sex of their babies, observation disclosed physical phenom.- enn, and then cmnmeuced the tallest female pedestrainisni. I/ving miles * apart, It required two or threa days to .unmix the bibies, and as many months to restore the mothers to their natural sweet dispusitiiin. T" unsafe for any one of the baby mixers to venture ioto the neighborhood.—Waco (Ttxuk) Register. ILONgEVITY. It is remarked by physicians that longevity is much depend,«nt upon the feelings and occtjpBtiuns of the mind. The individual whose thoughts are centered ' on and whose ambluno it aroused by some attractive enterprise or porjecr, seems to live a charmed life. There is less sickness and death among tbit busy portion of the community tha'i In the circles of the idlers, the retired ■merchants, gentlemen of fortune and leisure, seekers of mere pleasure and grstification of the senses. Tbe activc man can hardly afford the time to be sick. It is not when soldiers are on the march, or in agreeable active service, that mortality most in.Tades their ranks, but when encamped for an indefl.- nite period, or conflned to the dull routine of barracks after a lively cf m.. paign. It is often a surprise jto note the contjnpous and fatiguing labor endured by statesmen and professional men during perioDS Iff jp^oile excitement, or tbe Hi^orious tasks accomplished at times of planting and harvesting by the farmer who is thoroughly interested in what he hopes will prove a remunera* tiye crop, Pleasant and constant em pjoyment is tbe safest armor against the approach of disease yo^ tba shafts of death.

Esq., EnAeld, N. C. Drak Sir : Severe indisposition has prevented earlier attention to your letter of 4th inst., and absence from the city has prevented my meeting the gentls- men of your family now attending the Methodist ronvention—which I fear will adjourn before my return, I mvself am compiling a genpalogy of the Oarys of Virginia and am alwa>s glad to obtain InforiDation of sny of their descendants. Unfo|-tunntely I possess very raeag^e knowledge of the branches of Oarys from which you de scend. In my notes I find that a c.)r- tain 'Phos. Uary, al.vled >n his will, the elder, died in Warwick C'lunty Virginia in IT(>4, leaving a sin Thomas, aiid two daughters (not named) married respcct* ively to U. and O. Whitaker. Capt, Thomas Cary of Warwick made hia will in 17'.H) in which he mentions his two sons William and Mtlus, and his datjgliter Aunio married to KJmond Ourlis. The elder son W illiam was son of his father's first wife (a Miss Whitaker) sister of U. and U. Whitaker possibly. The younger son Miles sprung from a second inarri.ige with li’rances Cioodwyii. The male line of buth these sons is as far as I can ascertain extinct, (that of Miles certainly an). Miles married Rachel Somba of Charles C:ty, His two sons, .lohn and Wilson Miles died unmarried. K'izibeth, (horn ISOI) died 1M3,)} and I'Vaocei their sjsters married respectively Cliristophor Curtis at)d John Morse. Wiiijaiu Cary, the cider son, married twi^e, first a daughter of ^ady Rachel Cary, by wboo* lie had ai) only child, William, wbo died a minor. I|is second wife was a daughter of Josiah Mas- seoburg, by whom ha had an only child also, Thomaa W. (the W probably sUnd- ing for Whitaker,) of this Thomas W. Cary, I knoiy only that he was appointed clerk of Warwick in 1815. 'I'he time of his decease I can not ascertain. He married the beautiful Kliz ihelh Middle ton daughter of Capt. Jos. M , by whom he had an only child, William U Cary born 1817. died 1833 unmarried. Uis mother remarriod a .Mr, Bain of Uold.^ boroifgb N. C. The William Cary whose will is i 1 pro bate io 1808 ia Warwick with meiiton only of his sun William, may have beeu i.d>‘iitiiCal with Tbos. W. Cary’s farther William. If you can throw any light un this subject, I should be obliged. I should like to obtain from you a de tailed goneology of the doscendants uf tbe Cary and Whitaker intermarriages to include ia my work. Unfortunately the records of Warwick county were destroyed in the late war, but thdij.] of i'ork still survive from which 1 have gleaned ipany itjupis fii ;'cgi;rd .to a}y own nsi^ie, but I am sorry to say, have uothing uf the Vyhitakers. f have the inteiitivu of ransacliiiig thesa recordi; aeaiu, shortly I hope, ^nd if I obtain any thing relating to your faiqily I shall gladly communicate it. I think it must likely that tbe Rev. Alexander Whitaker uf K)17 left no issue. Ynur family may bg descended from Capt. Isaac Whitaker and Mary his wife whom the .early records mention as living in Elizabeth Ciiy county, Virginia in lt32I|. William Whital^er cominis.sioned a J. 1’. of War wick ciiuiity in 178u is marked as dead in the county report of 1797. I have never been able as yet to trace the copn^sction of Thomas .Otry of KGl with th« main steqt of our Virginia stock but ^ am constantly aijding to my means of solving these knotty geologir cal puzzles. My ancestor, Col. Miles Cary, who emigrated about 1C50 to Vireinia and settled in Warwick cuunty, and died there in 1CC7—was the father of four sons. Thomas, Henry, Miles st^d William. The line uf Thomas is in volved io much obscurity, and «an at present only be traced by guesswork and conjecture. The line uf Henry »nd Miles are beth centered in myself, who am the repircsciitative of tho fain'Oy in default of any known descendants from ThpniaB. I have two brothers and three cousins who .constitute the only moles of tho line of Miles tbe 3rd sou who was born io 1C55. fbe i^ourth son William died in 1713 ieaying otaav daughters and four sons, Harwood. I^iles, William and John. A Miles Cary died in 1724 leaving three sons. Mites, IFhomas and Nathaniel. The unnjsrried descendants uf these Cary’s I have not yet been able to clas sify into their proper faos'^'t’S but I am dispoBjwi to think that tbe Thomas Cary from whom you all descend was of the eldest line still I cannnt prove it. Thomas ,Oary the eldest son of Col Myjes Gary the emigrant, married Ann Daughter of Francis Milner of Nasemond, and a Thomas .Cary .died in 17,)S leav. Ing three sons Thomas, J'ames and MUenr, I find trace of a James Cary in Nansemood Io 17,50, aod I think some of this family must hive emigrated to North Carolina. There were some Carys in Waka county, no,t a great while ago I believe. I find in 1776 traces of a .Miles Cary in South Carolina having a plaotatlon on the Cimgaree. He ap.. pears to have come from the neighbor hood of Sussex 0. H. Va.
