It is said that lovers' ouarrels are
but the renewal of love, but it is not

Some women, in order to win back
iheir husband's wandering love, have
recourse to attempt to amuse hi
jealousy; but Inevare much, mistaken
in pursuinz such a course. A man,
however debased his conduct, never
entirely forgets the love he once bore
to ihe wife of his youth; there are
moments when feelings of tenderness
for Iter will return with force to his
heart; to reip the benefits of such
moments, the injured, forgiving wife,
must still be enshrined in the purity
ol former times. A husband will ex
cuse hislault to himself; and, in some
measure, stand exonerated in the
world, if the wife relax in tlie pro
priety of her conduci; while on the
contrary, the gentle forbearance, ihe
unoomulairiinif patience, and ihe un-
nb'rtiMve rectitude of the woman he
injures, will deeply strike to Ins heart,
ind do much to w in htm back to ins
fnrmpr love, nnd the observance ol
the vows he breathed at the nltar
where his heart was devoted to the

Where was then the gentleman!"-
Let any man watch the movements
of society, with the disposition and
ability to trace the relation of cause
and eflect, and I am quite sure that
he will be led to one conclusion, viz:
that most of the broils, street fights,
duels, and other outrages that infest
society, aitd spurn all cecencv, ori-
ginate with a particular class of men
ruffians and blackguards, claiming
to be -gentlemen." And the process

for a "gentleman." His claims, per

after a de-perate resistance, and sen

Self Made Men. The following

snsaks vo'uines of encouragement to

selfmnde men, who have risen by
their own energies from the humblest
walks of life. These "twin jailors of

are great obstacles to young and as
