THE JUNE MAGAZINES.
The June number of Scribner'a Monthly,
both in the number and exoolleaoe of its illus
trations and in the entertaining variety
of its literary contributions, maintains the
high Btandard of excellence its previous num
bers have reaohed. The contents are as fol
lows: "The Wonders of the Yellowstone," seoond
article, illustrated, N. P. Laogford; "Lights
and Shadows of the War," illustrated, William
Wells; "Three Leaves from a Story," poem,
illustrated, Lois Brooke; "The Mother of the
Emperor William," illustrated, Francis John
son; "Leipsio and its Fair," illustrated,
Thomas Emmette; "Norah, the Story of a
Wild Irish Girl," concluded, Mrs. Oliphant;
"The Illinois and St. Louis Bridge," illus
trated, A. S.Twonibly; "Making Tort," poem,
J. T. McKay; "The Shadow that Came Be
tween," Adeline Trafton; "The Freedom of
the 1'nlpit," Samuel W. Duflleld: "Wilfrid
"The Clothes of a Ghost," poem, Mrs. S. M.
B. Tiatt; "Topics of the Time," "The Old
Cabinet," "Home and Society," "Culture and
Frogress Abroad," "Culture and Progress at
Home," "Etchings," illustrated, L. Y. Hop
The following on "the ethics of dress,"
which we find under the head of "Home and
Society," is soundly sensible:
There are hill-slopes and mountain-tops in
New England which glitter just now in a
spring-time broidery of flowers. With every
season the flowers vary now arbutus, now
buttercups, now clover; but no change comes
to the solid granite which underlies them.
Through all seasons and all years it remains
Even so, certain immutable laws underlie
all human fashions, changing not with the
perpetual flux and sheen of outward life.
These laws, of grace, of symmetry, of pro
priety, are the oracles of our highest culture
and our finest instincts. They are natural
laws as well, and the things of Nature con
form to them. Willows droop, elm boughs
curve accordantly no humblest flower that
blows but' recognizes their behest in the
shaping and the painting of its cup.
But we are sot obedient as the flowers.
Acknowledging the law, we forgot it. Espe
cially is this true in matters of dress. Fashion
twitches this way and that, pulls lines out of
their rightful sweep and meaning, overloads,
deforms, disguises, and our eyes become
demoralized. Hardly do we endure before
ve embrace; we become a part of all which
at first we hated, and the higher law is for
gotten. Wherefore it is to be wished that as, each
season, our journals record the caprices of
Dame Fashion, some cooler voice in the back
ground might be provided, which should re
peat and re-repeat the old code so easily laid
aside, so important to remember. Or, to use
another figure, that amid the arbitrary
changes and glitter of society, a wise hand
should be found to seize and hold up the
Btandard as valid now as in the days of
classic Greece, the standard of correct taste
if haply a few here and there might behold
This code, worthy to be engraved on tables
of brass, runs somewhat after this wise:
Imprimis. The first instinct about a new
fashion is the true one. Don't wait till your
eye has lost its accuracy and your judgment
its edge. Subject the thing at once to the
general rule, and bow to the decision.
2d. What suits one person does not suit
another. Know thyself.
3d. Dress should supplement good points
and correct bad ones. Thick and thin, long
and short, are not all to be subjected to one
4 th. Colors should be harmonious, should
be massed, should be beoomiag. Id est,
many little points or blotches of color sprin
kled over a costume produce a disagreeably
pied and speckled effect, as of a monstrous
robin's egg, or a plum-pudding. One tint
should prevail, relieved by a contrasting tint.
No amount of fashionable prestige can make
an unbecoming color beooming. "Nile greeu"
will turn some people into oranges, though
twenty empresses ordain its adoption.
.rth. Lines should be continuous, graceful,
and feminine. It is better to look like a
woman C if von happen to be one) than like
anything else even a fashion-plate !
Oth. Ornament must be subordinate. Na
ture, with all her profusion, never forgets
this fundamental law.
7th. Above all things, be neat. Dainty
decision and freshness are essential to a
woman as a flower.
8th. Individuality is the rarest and the
cheapest thins in the world.
9th, and lastly, "Stylish" is of all the words
in the English language the most deadly. It
has Blain its thousands.

irom Air. uenson u. issuing a paper en
titled "The Horrors of San Domingo," we
take the following account of Toussaiat
At this juncture an extraordinary person
emerged from obscurity. It was i rancis Do
minique Touasaint, a negro of pure bloo l,
and grandson of anlUricsn prince. He wh
small, slender man, who was so thin in hit
boyhood that he was called "the little lath."
" He was now between forty and fifty years of
age, and bad been all his life a slave on the
estate of the Count de Noe, whose manager,
M. Bayou de Libertas, had educated him aud
placed him in positions of trust. He was
fctudious, thoughtful, and religions. He
warmly sympathized with his enslaved race in
tttii attitude of armed combatants for their
own freedom. He had read with profound
interest the Abbe Rayoal's essays on the
multifarious evil effects of Blavery, and had
long pondered peaceful schemes for the
emancipation of his race in San Domingo.
He was yet powerfully impressed by Itaynal's
pictures of the great wrong; and in the ser
vile insurrection which now invited his co
operation he thought he saw a way open
through a Bed Sea by which his people might
pass to a land of liberty.
TousRaint s soul glowed with an intense de
sire to assist in the liberation of his people,
and so boo n bs he oonld secure the safety of
M. Bayou, his benefactor, and that of his
family and some personal property, he joioed
the insurgent blacks. His deliy had excited
their suspicions and displeasure. They now
received him with open arms. His know
ledge of the medicinal properties of the flora
of the island caused his immediate employ
ment in the medical department. His mili
tary genius, hitherto unsuspected, was quickly
developed, and he was promoted first to the
staff of his chief, and then to the rank of a
brigadier-generai. It was not long before he
was acknowledged to be superior in martial
ability to the other black commanders, who
were either incompetent or ferocious and
cruel. Very soon San Domingo presented a
most pitiful spectacle. The beautiful prin
cess of the Antilles was made to bleed from a
thousand wounds. Her radiant beauty was
marred by the iron heel of war, and her rich
garments were trailed in the dust and cinders
of fiery discord.
i rench commissioners were sent from time
to time to quench the flames of civil war, if
possible, by mediation; but they were unsuc
cessful. Even the white inhabitants, divided
into royalist and republican factions as fierce
as those in i ranee, were irreconcilable
enemies. The black leaders, regarding the
National Convention as their foe, took the
royalist side after the beheading of Louis the
Sixteenth, in 1!)3, and, accepting the prof
fered aid of the King of Spain, refused to
listen to propositions from the republican
government of t rance.
Very soon new troubles appeared, whioh
finally produced beneficent results. The
Spaniards and the English invaded the west
ern part of the island. The latter captured
the whole western coast, seized Port-au-Prince,
the capital, and besieged the French
Governor, General Laveaux, and his troops,
in Port-de-Paix. This was the last strong
hold held by the French, and it was in immi
nent danger, for the garrison was weakened
by disease and famine. Woeful was now the
plight of ban Domingo ! Englishmen,
Frenchmen, Spaniards, mnlattoes, and blacks
were contending for the mastery. The latter
were overwhelming in numbers; and when
the English invasion was threatened, the
French commissioners resolved to conciliate
them by a proclamation of universal free
dom. That was done in August, 1703. In
February following the National Convention
confirmed the acts of the commissioners,
formally guaranteed the freedom of all the
inhabitants of the r rench colony, and made
Hayti an integral part of France.
loussaint, whose object in joining his in
surgent people was to secure their freedom,
saw in this guarantee of a great nation the
only chance for the accomplishment of his
holy purpose. He relied upon the faith of
France. If her government in San Domingo
should be firmly established, he believed that
the emancipation of his race would be fully
secured. He was then virtual commander-in
chief of the black forces. He openly de
clared his fealty to France, and formed a
junction with the little army under the
governor, bo energetically and successfully
did he work to bring all parties to the same
conclusion that General Laveaux exclaimed,
Mais cct homme fait ouverlure partout"
But this man opens the way every where
From that time he was called by the name of
L'Ouverture The Opening and he is known
in history as Touissaint L Ouverture.
From W. S. Turner we have received tne
June numbers of Arthur's Lady a Home
Magazine,which contains a number of fashion
plates and other illustrations and an enter
taining variety of reading matter, and The
Children's Hour, which is filled with plea
sant stories and sketches for the young
ltOBESPIEKEE ON LIBERTY OF WORSHIP. To
speak of ltobespierre as a teacher of morals
may sound incongruous to those who asso
ciate his name with little besides the guillo
tine and the long procession of victims he
sent to death. Many a better man, however,
has failed to grasp the. truth he preaohed in
03, when churches were robbed and priests
imprisoned, as is now the case in Paris. A
French paper calls the attention of the
authors of the present excesses to his utter
ances on this point. "By what right (said
be) should men hitherto unknown in the
march of the revolution come in the midst of
these events to seek a false popularity, sow
ing discord among us, disturbing liberty of
worship in the name of liberty, attacking
fanaticism by fresh fanaticism, and making
the homage due to pure truth degenerate into
ridiculous farces r v by should they be per.
mitted thus to play with the dignity of the
people, and fasten the bells of folly to the
very sceptre of reason ? It has been supposed
that by receiving civic offerings the conven
tion had proscribed Catholio worship. No,
the convention has not taken this rash step;
it never will do so. Its intention is to main
tain the liberty of worship whioh it has
proclaimed, and at the same time to repress
those who abuse it to the disturbance of publio
order. Priests have been denounoed for hav
ing said mass; they will say it no longer if
they are prevented from saying it. He who
tries to prevent mass from being said is more
fanatical than he who says it. There are men
who claim to make a religion of atheism.
Every philosopher, every individual, can on
this point adopt whatever opinion he pleases.
He who would make it a crime in him would
be a madman; but the legislator who would
adopt such a system would be a hundred
times more mad." i
