Why do Teeth Decay? All t lie theories
that time and again have been advanced in
answer to this inquiry have long since vanished
before the true doctrine of the action of exter
nal corrosive agents. The great and all-powerful
destover of the human teeth is acid, vegeta
ble or mineral ; and it matters not whether-that
acid is formed in the mouth by tlie decomposi
tion of particles of food left between and around
the teeth, or whether it is applied directly to
the organs themselves, the result is the same,
enamel is dissolved, corroded, and the tooth
destroyed. Much, very much of the decay in
teeth may be attributed to the corrosive effects
of acetic acid, which is not only in common use
as a condiment in the form of vinegar, but it is
generated by the decay and decomposition of
any and every variety of vegetable matter.
When we consider how very few persons, com
paratively, take especial pains to remove every
particle of food from between and around their
teeth immediately after eating, can we wonder
that diseased teeth are m common, and that
their early loss is so frequently deplored.

superscription. We give it exactly:

It i3 inserted as a literary cariosity for those
who find a pleasure in odd things. As it bears
on its face a m'w-direetion so far as " Tolly "
and ."Ellin" are concerned, there can bo no
doubt that " Molley Ann" must have been the
recipient of all the ircalthit might contain, for
doubtless its contents were rich. Uniccrsity
The letter has duly arrived in " Comland
County Fay. Ettvill post office and awaits its
"Young Amkiuca." The Lafayette (India
na) Journal tells a good story of a precocious
little fellow who walked into the house of a ci
tizen of that city one day last week, and after
taking a seat by the fire, very coolly informed
tbe lady of the house that he was on his way
to Chicago, and, if they had no objection, he
would remain over night. The lady, of course
consented, and the little stranger was kindly
cared for. He gave his name as Charlie, and
said he lived in Cleveland. When asked what
he was going to Chicago, for, he answered that
he was 'travelling for his health." All attempts
to obtain the name of Jds parents were unavail
ing. He obstinately persisted that he never
had any. i
But we wont divulge the thought that pass

"How do vou do, Miss Merit?" taid Solomon.
'Pretty well, thank you, Mr Periwinkle.

"You see as I was coming by, I thought I'd
step in and ask you:. 'a question about -about "
"I suppose," thought Mehitable, "he means
about the state of mv heart."
"The fact is," said Solomon, who wax rather
bashful, "I feel a little delicate about asking,
but 1 hope you won't think it strange?"
"O no," simpered -Mehitable, "I don't think
it at all strange, and in fact, I've been expect
ing it." -
"O," said Solomon, Tathcr surprised, "I be
lieve you have in your possession something of
'"His heart, he means," said Mehitable, as'de.
"Well, sir," she continued, aloud, "it inav afford
you pleasure to learn that you have mine in re
turn. It is fully and entirely your own."
"Vhill I gol ijour umhrdlar1 exclaimed So
Iomon, in amazement.-'. "I think vou must be
mistaken, and I don't think I'd like to exchange
mine for it, for mine was given inc."
"I beg-your pardon," said the discomfited old
.maid, "l.Mit I made a mistake. I quite forgot
your umoreiia which i norroweu Koine lime ago
Here it is. I was thinking of sumething else."
"If," a id feolomon, "there is any thin-r of

A Xrr rnn Akoi.itioxism. A bill has re
cently passed the Senate of V'a , for the purpose
of "allowinar certain free negroes in the countv
of Nottoway, to enslave themselves. These
negroes had earncsth'. petitioned to the Legis
lature for this '.privilege; 3Ir Campbell, the
able and estimable Senator from the Notlowav
district, in making a statement of facts to the
Senate, said that they had been manumitted by
the will of a gentleman in his district, and that
their desire was to be sold to their late master1
next kin. A large number of respectable citi
zens of Nottoway, feeling an in tercet in the ne
groes for their good character, added their re
commendations for the same - object. The bill
has passed the Senate, and we have no doubt
will pass the other House. "
The Richmond Dispatch from which paper
we gather the above facts, very truly says this

A n Eccentkic TitF-.u'iiKit. -Mtirrav's "Hand
book for South Italy" contains oine curious
stories respecting Fia llocco, the celebrated
Dominican preacher, and the -f piritnal "Joe
Miller" of Naples. On one occasion, it is re
lated, he preached on the mole a penitential
sermon, and introduced so 'many illustrations of
terror that he soon brought hi hearers to
their knees. While they were thus showing
every sign of contrition, he cried out, "Now,
all of you who sincerely repent of your sins hold
up vour hands." Every man in the vast inuJf i
tude immediately stretched out both his hands.
"Holy Archangel Michael," exclaimed Itocco,
"thou", who with thine adamantine sw ord 'stand
est at 'the right of the judgment seat of CSod,
hew me off every hand which has been raised
hypocritically," In an instant every hand
dropped, and Roeco, of course, poured a fresh
torrent of eloquent invectives against their sins
and their deceit. He had a great dislike to
tobacco, and when once preaching in a crowd
of Spanish sailors, he astounded them by telling
them that there were no Spanish saints in heaven.
A few, he said, had been admitted, but they
smoked so many cigars that they made the
Holy Virgin sick, and, St. Peter sat his wit to
work to get them out. At length he proehriiied
that a bull fight was to be held -.outside.' the
gates of Paradise. Thereupon every Spanish
saint, without exception, '.ran off to see the fight,
and St. Peter immediately closed the gate, and
took care never to admit another Spaniard.
