We will now take Into consideration the ad
vantages of the two roads.
Theovered road, if made of good white oak
posts, charred at the lowe.- end and covered
with white oak boards, will stand from 15 to 20
years without much repairs. The road, being
free from sun and rain, will be more plevsant
winter aud summer.
The plank road is- objectionable on the fol
lowing grounds: 1st, the planks are constantly
being misplaced by loaded wagons. 2d, they
will not last more than 6 or 7 years; and 3d,
travelers are compelled to take the sun as well
as winter rains.
Taking all things together, the covered road
is the cheapest and best, bting easily repaired
by pinning on a post to the old post when it de
cays, and is most.pleasant to travel on for man
That section of country on an. air line from
Memphis toCorington through the heavy Urn
ber on Big Creek, ix., abounds with the very
best material the world affords for the con
atruction of either a covered or a plank road,
and one is much needed, being inconvenient to
the rail. LAUDERDALE.

Those statisticians can see it and bear it.
The current of masculine marriageable humani
ty sets right by without stopping. Great sighs
heaved from the bottom of prudent but hopeless
hearts, are all that is given to hymen. Young
artists, young artisans, young doctors, mer-
cnani'g clerics, lawyers of more youth than cli

ble and honorable subsistenceit-one, according
to the scale of 1846, pass by quickly, alarmed
by the evidences of the inexorable conditions
attached to reputable marriage in these evil
days of competition and social display.
Marriage is becoming a luxury to men in the
United States. The cost of provisions, the wa
ges of labor, the rent of dwellings, the cost of
necessaries and of luxuries, added to the unre
lenting preipure upon people in respectable so
ciety to dress richly and furnish showily, make
the inevitable price of a family out of reach of
the salaries and incomts of mout of the young.
Of the effect on the morals and character of u
state in which wedlock is prohibited, it ia un

skirts. A happy accident brought relief. lo
the Empress of the French was it reserve.! to
revive the hooped skirts a fashion which had
subsided for many years before the unceasing
assaulte of the wits and gallants who took a
dislike to it.
No one can have forgotten the censures which
it provoked in the days of Addison. " I con
sider womau," says the great csiayist, "a
bautlf ui, romantic Hiiimal, that may be adorned
with futs and feathers, pearls and diamonds,
ores and silks, lhe lynx shall cj it his skin at
ber feet to make her a tippet ; the peacock,
parrot and a wan shall pay contributions to bar

the rocks for gems ; and every part of nature
shall furnish out its share towards the cmbel
ishment of a creature that is the most consum
mate work of it. All this I shall indulge them
in ; but as for the petticoat I have been speak
ing or, I neunercan nor win anow it,"
There were other reasons besides popular sa
tire and ridicule, which contributed to the
downfall of the monstrous hoops of former
times. Thev werj as heavy with cordage and
buckram as the multiplicity of skirts which
they supplanted. Their unwieldlness and ex
pensiveness also have helped to drive them from
Fortunatelv, the inveitive genius of our ae
has supplied the defect and removed most of
the objections which were chargeable to the
hooned skirts of an earlier pattern. The skirts
wbicn are manuraciurea oy Aiessrs. uougiasK
Sherwood, ol wis cty, comDine ngatness wun
streneth and flexibility, tp a degree which can
hardly be exceeded. Not long since, a "skele
ton shirt" was sent oy man rrom tneir estab
lishment, folded up in a letter envelope, weigh
ing only four ounces, and yet, on being taken
out. it was found as good as new bursting open
and expanding its bell-?baped proportions like
a fresh blown morning giory, anaexnibittnfthe
elastic tension of a well spread umbrella. Such
is the convenience of wearing them, that the
first woman or this country thus emancipated
from her swaddling clothes a woman over
eighty years of ace confessed that she never
had enjoyed the free use of ber limbs before.
The styles ot steins are quite numerous, vary
ing in shape, size and cost, Not less than sev
enty-five kinds are sold at the establisbmeLt
referred to, the wholesale prices of which range
from six dollars to seventy hve a dozen. There
are, for example, the skeleton skirt, several
varieties of the zephyr skirt, the la Grange
skirt, the Congress, la Sylphide, and the Union
skirt. Silk, muslin, haircloth, cactus cloth,
and other materials, are employed in their man
ufacture, besides the tape, cord, bone and steel
which are needed to give them their set. In
the matter of hoong, a general preference is
expressed for the round whalebone, which,
when boiled in oil, loses that brittleness which
has been the main objection to its use. -Some,
however, prefer steel, aiid others insist upon
cord, which, with crinoline, constitutes a sort
of compromise fadiiion.
The most popular styles of skirts at present
appear to be tne union, uie skeleton and ia s7l
pbide. The latter is a simple, tasteful article.
bell shaped, and in eize a just medium between
the ungraceful straight petticoat, with its folds
collapsing round the hips and legs, and the full
blown ultra mode which is such as annoyance
to the wearer's companions in the theatre or
the omnibus. It has three bonei, the length of
which are ftv-six inches at the top, seventy
four in the middle, and ninety-five at the bot
tom. These are' considered the iroper propor
tions, though we have seen some skirts at Gen-
in's which, at the lower bone, miasure no less
than one hundred and fifteen in&ies in circam
ference. As for the number of hoops, tastes
differ. Some ladies go as high as six, white
few are conlontwun less man two.
The skirts most universal! worn last sum
rner, tvere the " Skeleton Skirts." They ware
first made ot round wnaiebone noopg, field to
gether by tape ; but these were complained of
as being apt to trip up the wearer. A deep
borjler ofinuslin was then added, which ren
dered "them all" that could -'he desired. Their
greafmerit conslstedIhrfOieir1extren,e Mgbt-?
ness. During the busy season, three thousand
a day were made of this kind alee. Another
style is called the " Union Skirt." It is made
o white or dark cloth, with the lower part
quilted in large diamonds, finished round the
bottom with jute cord. Above the quilting is a
whalebone hoop, and about a quarter of a yard
above that, another. The back is then finished
by three small hoops of whalebone, which form
skirts one above the other, and extend over the
hips. These are joined by tapes a quarter of a
yard in length, which were suspended from the
front of the binding and attached to the hoop
in front of the skirt.
With regard to hoop3,we are told that every
day adds something to the novelties which are
said to combine all the advantar.es, with none
of the difficulties, of those which preceeded
them. The eutta-percha hoops, a late niven
tion, have proved quite impracticable in wear
ing. Tbey break immediately, and will not
bear gtretchii.tr twice in one place. Another
strong objection is the fact that, on becoming
warm, tney emit an unpleasant o-ior, whicl
soon renders them intolerable. The steel hoops,
a still later production, are free from some of
these objections, but are neither so elastic or
flexible as the round whalebone boiled in oil,
which is the best material for hoops we have
Been. Made of very hiebly tempered steel.
they are also very expensive, $6 each being the
price asked fcr some, which were only of com
mon materials. They are also very apt to breath,
and example of which was afforded a few even
ing's since at one of Thalberg's concerts. A
lady's steel Loop broke and sprung into her leg
nearly an inch deep ; the wound was very se
vere. and may make amputation necessary.
Few persoss are aware of the extent to which
the business of making hooned skirts a busi
ness scarcely three, years old is now carried
in this city. Messrs. Douglass & Sherwood,
No. 343 Broadway, besides their establishments'
in Connecticut and otner places, occupy turee
floors of a building in Broadway, two hundred
feet deep and thirty wide, in tne manufacture.
In the busy season, three hnndrcd trirls, fa
charming congregation, by the way, to tbe ad
mirers of female beauty,) earning from five and
a half to ten dollars each a week, are employed
in cutting out and sewing SKiris.ifiree tnousand
of which are turned out in a day. One hundred
and fifty of Wheeler Ic Wilson's sewine ma
chines, and a variety of ingenious labor-saving
inventions are constantly in play, so mat a sin
gle skirt is made in ten minutes. We have
known a husband enter the store, give an order
for bis wife's skirt, have it patterned and made,
and receive it all done up and ready to be car
ried home before he badhalf smoked his cigar.
A ton of cord is consumed in a week in the
manufacture, and not less than $0,000 worth of
whalebone in a month : and then what acres
what lenctbs of thread
ini9n.itn h,f ..nr.
and tape what enormous quantities of little
brazen tubes to unite tbe hoops, will in process
of time be consumed, it has not entered into the
head of man to estimate. The imagination
fairly breaks down in the contemplation.
Though the new fashion has not triumphed uni
versally, it is irresistibly contagious. Wher
ever it is seen it is admired and adopted. Per
haps it is not extravagant to conjecture that
the day may yet come when, secure iu these
moving towers of bene and steel, our invincible
wives and daughters will laugh at tbe exploded
theories of female frailty, and when every wo
man's petticoat will be her castle
The impregnability of such a defense is thus
illustrated by a faiiadeipnia poet:

Horr'ble Story. The New York corres
pondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes":
" It will be remembered that the late Corpo
ration Attorney, Lorenzo J3. Shephard, Esq.,
was some three months ago found dead in his
room, after retiring tbe night previous in good
health. The physicians reported the cause of
his death to the congestion of the heart, and
the coroner's jury returned a verdict in accor
dance therewith. The body of Mr. Shephard
was placed in a receiving vault, preparatory
to its final Interment In the family burial ground.
A few days ago Mrs. Shephard ordered the re
mains of her deceased husband to be taken
from the vault, but those employed for the
purpose were horror struck on finding the body
removed several feet lrom the coflin, the shroud
torn into shreds, and covered with blood, giv
ing the impression that Mr. Shenhard had m.lv
been lying in a trance, and had recovered after
being placed in the vault. This seems almost
too horrible for belief, and I understand that a
relation of Mr. Shephard denies the truth of the
report, and asserts that such could not have
been the case, from tbe fact that the body was
packed in ice over two days previous to its be
ing placed In the vault. On the other hand,
mere are tnose who contend tnat. Mr. bliephard
was not dead 'at the time of placing his body in
the vault, and that certain facts are li, posses
sion of the family which eo tc ;Low tbe truth
of their assertions."

dress at West Chester, Pa., thus alluded to the
great contest just closed :
"So iloseir allie&are our blessinrs and our

After awhile the leader came up with a glass
of some dark beverage, which he insisted on
our drinking. I tasted it; it was schnapps,
the most villianous kind of brandy,and'as strong
as it wag bad. One taste was sufficient, but it
was no sooner offeied to the strong Elizabetha
then she emptied the glass without changing a
muscle of countenance.' The quantity of this
