The exclusion of young unmarried women
from society in this country, deprives it of
one of its greatest charms. I nm ready, in
deed, lo own thai too many young ladies,
just come out, weigh nt times somewhat
henwly on a parly in our own country; bin
conceive what 11 blank tho nhseuee ol the
whole would make, nud you will bettor un
derstand the variety, un.i interest, and ani-
malioii they pive lo it.

maikabh; for her piety nud excellence than
for her uneouunoii nttii'umients.
Willi 11 lew blight exceptions, however, il
unliirluiiately happens that the class of lite
rary women in Italy ure too violently literary.
The blues nre loo deep a blue. .They nre
either wholly unlearned, or overpoweringly
learned. A taste liir literature is not gener
ally diffused mid intermingled with other
pursuits nud pleasures, ns in l''nglund; it is
confined to n low, nml reigns in them without
control. Neither does the love of letters ex
elude the love of adulation. Their vanity is
of n dillereiit east, but not less ins atiable limn
that of the other liiir Italians. They cuter
tain you too much with talking of iheir works,
or repeating their own compositions ; mid
their houses ure generally infested by n herd
of male scribblers, who make large liemiuids

An Every Day Paradox:
OR, HOW A MAN LOST ALL HE WAS
WORTH, BY GETTING RICH.
BY WILLIAM HOWITT.
There wn a littlo village boy
Oh ! but his heart was full of joy,
Ibid he a stiek to w hittle on,
A h ig of nun hies and a kite,
Surely there never was delight
Likd that of Johnny Littleton.
But time paicd on a boy no longer,
Up he grew, tidier, stouter, stronger,
And then yen would a luurc;
For h?. ha 1 111 ido n splendid m irriige,
And ho rode in a shiiiin .; carriugu
John Littleton, Lsriuii'c.
No doubt you think this very grand,
But I mii-t ni iko you un lcr.st 111J
A very dill'ereat e.iso;
Tlio' shrew lest heads might not have found,
11a 1 they surveyed this gro.it man round,
Mid'ortune in his face.
And yet be wa most sad for riehe
11 ive something in tlieui that bewitches,
And tills with large pretence;
Whilst, lino a terrible disease,
They rob us of true mirth and case,
Our faculties and sense.
And this was now bis case for ho
H i 1 lost his siht he could not scO
Sunc things, however nigh i
The friends und playmates in his youth
lie could not sec them, though, 111 troth,
S,ino stood tail six feet high.
And then his hearing went oh ! none
11 1 1 curs so quick ns littlt John
l''or neighbors in their need ;
But now, if sorrow cries and roars,
What hope, to pierce a dosen doors,
And cam most do. if indeed ?
And soon ho lo: t his common tense ;
Piill'od up with most alxurd pretence,
1 1 0 hoped abroad to find
E udi bolter man in poorer enso
Bow down unto ihe dust bis lace
lis was out of bis mind.
His peaeo of mind expired in glooms,
Ho built 11 house of many rooms
Of many nud most grand;
But through them all ho sought in vain,
He could not Hud his peace ugain
In all liu houso and land.
Next memory wavered nnd withdrew,
Tho more estate nnd body grew,
Still grow bis memory thinner ;
Until ho even could not tell.
Without a goo 1 resounding bell,
His common hour for dinner.
So, on bis liouso-tnp it w ns hung,
And loudly, daily it was rung,
To summon him to dine ;
As well ns thnt tho poor nii;;ht bq
Assured, ns they were drinking tea,
That ho was drinking wino.
Alas ! what mattered wino or food )
Oh 1 but hn was in different mood
By his own mother's door,
Willi porringer of milk nod bread ;
And no iv his nppctite hud tied,
And it returned no more.
No ! rot thmish bis dishes did abound.
Though powdered bieipieys stood uround
In jackets qu iinlly drc-sed,
With scarlet collar nnd scarlet w rit,
And buttons stamped with n great beast-
John a truo armorial credt
This boast ho on his trinket! wore;
On h iriirssj on his carriage doar ;
And on his scaled letters ;
Upon his bed, upon his chair,
This beast was figured everywhere,
A beast in golden letters.
Lost cyo and car, lost heart and health ;

Of nil the periodieul journals devoted to

to me the most useful. It routniiia imleed
