WhDNKSDAY, JAN. !), 1884.
WIVES FOR SALE.
't wish to be ut Smltlitlcld at six
hours to hoc Oa men ncll their
wive.' And the young logtie foil
ilslcep, thinking what sort of a one
he'd liny." Thus is described in
one of Thackeray's inimitable bur
lesques the iden of our mnuucis and
customs enterUiincd by a Fietich
fiitcv tetir visiting England for the
first time, and viewing London So
ciety fioin the point of view afforded
bv the Kreas restaurants in the
neighbourhood of Leicester Square.
Though vc laugh at Gallic ignorance
of our insular ways, we pity the
ignorance of poor "Mounseor," and
deride his penchant for fiogs, and
his comedy aiis. and his futile fol
lowing of He sport." And in the
midst of our laughter we suddenly
wake up to the fact that Englishmen
do sell tlicir wives. It is true that
the trade is not done in Stnithtleld
Market "at six hours." But it is
performed with almost equal pub
licity. And the article is disposed
of at a price which should briug it.
within the reach of the very humblest
member of society. Last week a
ease as tried at Liverpool during
which it transpired that the lady then
in the dock had been sold by her
hubband to her present possessor for
a quart of beer. The lady was on
her trial for bigamy. That is to say.
she had her virtue being in excess
of her caution manied the gentle
man who had purchased her. Had
.hc been content to omit the cere
mony, she would now be a free wo
man, and we should have heard noth
ing of this curious custom. Her
ery desire to be respectable has un
done her. His loidship on tlfu bench
expicssed his very great surprise and
disgust at the novel proceedings,
and was at one time so carried away
by his natural feelings that lie
declared himself half inclined to
commit witnesses, purchaser, and
foimcr husband on a charge of
bigamy, on the ground that they
i ere all accessories before the fact.
Bill in those very circles in which his
lordship moves is there no matri
monial buying and selling? Of
course, people in society never com
mit bigamy. But are young wives
never sold to old husbands, and
do young husbands never sell them
selves to old wives? Are coronets
and estates and diamonds unknown
as the current coin of the matrimoni
al mart? It is right that judges
should wax indignant over the crimi
nal follies of the ignorant poor. But
there ure many bargains of which
judges approve and which bishops
bless, which are in the sight of
Heaven even more degrading than
this enforced sale of a helpmate for
a quart of beer. Life.
Russia, whenever she finds herself
getting into political hot water, goes
in bravely, on the homoeopathic
principle, for a strong dose of finan
cial tioublcs. .She is not on the best
of terms with Prussia; Austiia
hardly regards her as a bosom fiiend ;
and so poor Russia tells all her
troubles to the sympathetic ear of
La belle France. The two bad boys
of the European school being both
in disgrace, make friends, and
Russia improves the situation by
trying to bonow a few million
roubles "'just for a few days, you
know, to pay that rapacious England,
who won't wait tor her interest.'
Isn't this amusing? For France
herself looks forwuid to a deficit.
Of course the money hasn't been
raised yet, and .somehow French
capitalists are chary of lending
Russia any moie, for the deficit
(according to the St. Peteisburg
correspondent of the Time.i) for the
first half of 188!) amounts to the
enormous sum of twenty-one million
roubles I No doubt pat t ot this may
lie wiped out before the end of the
year; but whatif it isn't? Supposing
it doubles itself, as deficits have a
most unpleasant habit of doing!
Russia is a very fine place, no doubt,
but its finances under M. Buuge arc
not the most flourishing, and with
the possibility of a Kuiopean low, I
fear that even if M. Bunge does get
ifie money he asks for, ie will have
to ia3' a tremendous price for it.
It must often be a dilllciilt task for
a young ludy to reject an olfcr of
marriage from a pertinacious wooer
in micli a innnneras to leave no doubt
in the rejected one's mind that her
decision is final and irievokablc.
For any of my fair readers who may
be in doubt upon this delicate sub
ject, 1 append a form, which, I be
lieve, is not to bo found in any edi
tion of the Complete (or incomplete)
Miss Bhuik pu-bPiiUi her compli
ments to Mr. Hash, and begs to
inform him that she is compelled to
decline his fluttering proposal, as on
further acqiibintaiicc she bus discov
ered that ho is possessed of neither
mind, body, nor estntc. Life.
It is no vanity for a man to pride
" himself on what'he has honestly. got
; nnd prudently uses.
