We have received the following letter.

Sir,-To the many ludicrous objections which your Irish Correspondent Mr. O'Rourke has brought forward against the system of MACADAMIZATION may be added another of a really serious nature. “ Old woman-killing” is not the greatest fatality to be apprehended from paving our streets with small stones and shingles. Much more efficient members of the community will be in all probability sacrificed at the shrine of the Paving Goddess,—to wit, young and middle-aged people of both sexes. This is an alarming assertion ; but the fact is, it is a result of experience and medical calculation that consumption is diminished in the ratio of four to five-and-a-half by the substitution of pavement for what I will denominate (for convenience) road-ment. Those who are in anywise naturally disposed to consumption and asthma will inspire or inhale dust in sufficient quantities either to create the positive disease if it be not already developed in the system, or greatly to augment its strength if it does exist to any degree. Freedom from dust is one of the chief causes why cities are not so much subject to pulmonary complaints as otherwise their confined and unhealthy atmosphere would lead us to suppose. On the other hand, persons who by their situations are in the habit of breathing air impregnated with dusty particles, often create, often nourish within themselves, pulmonary diseases to which they become premature sacrifices. It would be needless to adduce proofs and authorities for what I have asserted ; every intelligent physician will confirm it. The advocates for Macadamization had better therefore think well before they assimilate the atmosphere of the city to that of a Needle-manufactory by generalizing the system throughout the metropolis. October 20, 1824.

I am, Sir, yours, &c. MEDICUS. Let us hope that the fears of our correspondent Medicus are unfounded: the balance of dust in favour of consumption must be very small, we presume, if the roads are well watered-in that case, however, he will perhaps say, that the vapours exhaling from the moist road will have a tendency to create or aggravate the same disorder. Ah, well! it will be all the same to us a hundred years hence: and in the mean time it is no slight advantage to get rid of the copper-smiths.

We know not how to account to E. R. for our silence respecting the little fragment with which she favoured us last month ; but if she could see the leaves of MS. which strew our table, thick as Mr. Milton's leaves, she would not be surprised if we now and then overlooked a Correspondent. We are sorry that in the present instance our neglect should have fallen upon a lady. The verses have merit, but they are not so good as some we have seen from the same pen.

a

F. may be assured that we are not easily “ shocked,” we have read better pa phrases and worse. But respectable poetry is like a respectable actor, very unobjectionable, and very dull.
