than i s presented b y a loving
couple. Undoubtedly it is meet
and proper, that two persons join
ed together i n holy matrimony
should be loving, and unquestion
ably it is pleasant to know and see
that they are so; but there is a
time .for all things, and the couple
who happen to be always in a
loving state before company are
well nigh intolerable.
And in taking up this position
we would have it distinctly under
stood, that we do not seek alone
the sympathy of bachelors, in j
whose objection to loving couples
we recognize interested motives 1
:ind personal considerations. We
grant that to that unfortunate
class of society there may be some-!
thing very irritating, tantalizing,!
and provoking, in being compelled
to witness those gentle endear- j
ments and chaste interchanges!
which to loving couples are quite
the ordinary business of life. 13nt
while we recognize the .natural
character of the prejudice to which
these unhappy men are subject,
we can neither receive their biassed
evidence, nor address ourself to
their inflamed and angered minds.
Dispassionate experience i s our
only guide; and in these moral
essays we seek 110 less to reform
hymeneal offenders than to hold
out a timely warning to all rising'
couples, and even to those who
have not yet set forth upon their
pilgrimage towards the matriino-,
nial altar. N
Let all couples present 01 to
come, therefore, profit by the ex
ample of Mr. and Mrs. Leaver,

Mr. and Mrs. Leaver are pro
nounced by Mrs. Starling, a widow
lady who lost her husband when
she was young, and lost herself
about the same time (for by her
own count she has never since
grown five years older,) to be a
perfect model of wedded felicity
"You would suppose," says the
romantic lady, "that they were
lovers only just 11 o w engaged.
Never was such happiness! They
are so tender, so affectionate, so
attached t o each other, so en
amoured, that positively nothing
can be more charming!"
"Augusta, my soul," says Mr.
Leaver. "Augustus, (m y life,"
replies Mrs. Leaver. "Sing some
little ballad, darling," quoth Mr.
Leaver. "I couldn't, indeed;.
dearest." returns Mrs. Leaver.
"Do, my dove," says Mr. Leaver.
"I couldn't possibly, my love,"
replied Mrs. Leaver: "and it's
very naughty of you to ask me."
"Naughty, darling!" cries Mr.
Leaver. "Yes, very naughty, and
very cruel," returns Mrs. Leaver;
"for you know I have a sore
throat and that to sing would
give m e great pain. You're a
monster, and I hate you. G o
away!" Mrs. Leaver h a s said
"Go away," because Mr. Leaver
has tapped her under the chin:
Mr. Leaver not doing as he is bid,
but, on the contrary, sitting down
beside her, Mrs. Leaver slaps Mr.
Leaver, and Mr. Leaver in return
slaps Mrs. Leaver; and, it being
now time for all persons present
1 to look the other way, they look
the other way, and hear a still
small sound as of kissing, at which
Mrs. Starling is thoroughly en
raptured, and whispers her neigh
bor that i f all married couples
I were like that, what a heaven this
earth would be!
The loving couple are at home
when this occurs, and maybe onlv
three or four friends are present;
but, unaccustomed to reserve up
on this interesting point, they are
pretty much the same abroad. In
deed, upon some occasions, such
as a picnic or a water-party, their
lovingness is even more developed,
as we had a n opportunity last
summer of observing in person.
There was a great water-party
made up to go to the big city and
dine, and afterwards dance in an
empty villa by the riverside, hired
expressly for the purpose. Mr.
and Mrs. Leaver were of the com
pany; and it was our fortune to
have a seat in the same boat, which
was an eight-oared galley, manned
by amateurs, with a blue striped
awning o f the s.iinc pattern as
their Otiemsev shirts, and a dingy
red flag of the same shade as the
whiskers of the stroke -oar. A
coxswain being appointed, and all
other matters adjusted, the eight
gentlemen threw themselves into
strong paroxysms, and pulled up
with the tide, stimulated by the
compassionate remarks of the
ladies, who one and all exclaimed
that it seemed an immense exer
tion, as indeed it did. At first
we raced the other boat, which
came alongside, in gallant style;
but this beiti .found an unpleas
ant amusement, as giving rise to a
great quantity of splashing, and
rendering the cold pies and other
viands very moist, it was unan
imous v voted down, and we were
suffered to shoot ahead, while the
second boat followed ingloriously
111 our wake.
It was at this time that we first
recognized M r . Leaver. There
were two firemen watermen in the
boat, lying by until somebody was
exhausted; and one of them, who
had taken upon himself the direction
of affairs, was heard to cry in a
gruff voice. "Pull away, number
two; give it her, number two; take
a long reach, number two; now,
number two, sir! think you're
winning a boat." The greater
part of the company had no doubt
begun to woneler which o f the
striped Guernseys it might be that
stood in need of such encourage
ment, when a stifled shriek from
Mrs. Leaver confirmed the doubt
ful and informed the ignorant;
and Mr. Leaver, still further dis
guised in a straw hat and no neck
cloth, was observed to be in a
fearful perspiration, and failing
visibly. Nor was the general con
sternation diminished at this in
stant by the same gentleman (in
the performance of an accidental
aquatic feat, termed catching a
crab") plunging suddenly back
ward, and displaying nothing of
himself to the company but two
violently struggling legs. Mrs.
Leaver shrieked again several
times, and cried piteouslv, "is he
dead? Tell me the worst is lie
Now, a moment's reflection
might have convinced the loving
wife, that, unless her husband
were endowed w i t h some most
surprising powers of muscular ac
tion, he never coulel be dead while
he kicked so hard; but still Mrs.
Leaver crieel, "is he dead? is he
dead?" and still everybody else
cued, No, no, no, until such
time as Mr. Leaver was replaced
in a sitting posture, and his oar
(which had been going through
all kinds of wrong-headed per
formances o 11 its own account)
was once more put in his hand by
the exertions of the two firemen
watermen. Mrs. Leaver then ex
claimed, "Augustus, my child,
come to me;" and Mr. Leaver said,
