ME COUT O! JOVE.
Ta. Court ef Jove was once convened,
, And thus the question ran:
Which holds the greatest sway on earth,
Tbe female nece or mau ?
The hall was full-the gods were there
The subject to debate,
While goddesses for woman plead,
Until the hour was late.
Old Time then left his dusty seat,
Where for ages he had been,
To teli to those assembled there,
What his sharp eye had seen.
"I saw," said he, " a warrior come,
Triumphant from the field,
With laurels fresh upon his brow,
Which had his courage sealed.
But while he made his vieturous boast,
To valor breathed his vow,
An arrow speed froit woman's eye
Soon laid the warrior low.
I saw a monarch on his throne,
A sceptre in his hand
Dependent subjects at his feet,
And a realm at his commanJ.
Tut 'twas his lot to be subdued
Tlis freedom found a grave,
For woman came-and by her charm.
The king was made a slave."
" In fine," said he, " I looked on man,
Ferocious, savage, wild,
UNtil his lawless soul was tamed
By nature's fairest ehild.
Her smiles have a subduing power,
Her tears resistless might
Her voice a tone that thrills the heart
Her eye, an orb of light.
" And now," said he," another word,
And then my task is done;
That is-without her, man's a blank
Creation has no aun."
OOD WIVESA WANT O 'EE 'r .
This is the rather startling caption of an
article in a late number of the Boston 01.
ive Branch. If the allegation be indeed
true, then it is- high time there- were some
"Men's Rights Conventions," for the pur
pose of bringing about a reform. All the
wrong, defects, and oppression we are satis
fied, do not lie on the men's side of the
house. We are not willing to bear more
than half of the responsibility that attaches
to society for the evils it creates.
If there is a want of good husbands,
there is an equal want of good wives, and
it will do neither the one nor the other any
harm to be toldlthe truth plainly. We copy
a portion of the article referred to, and ask
young ladies, who are looking out for good
husbands, to give it their serious considera
As the lady reader looks at the subject of
this article, she adds, " Good husbands, also,
are a want of the times." It may ho so.
But one thing at a time. We have set one
pen in motion to write on our selected sub
ject. And now for the proof of our pro
position. We wvill first give some testimony.
W~e rallied a young man, the other day,
upon his leading a bachelor life. He replied,
"I cannot afford to marry. My income
will not support 'a family with the present
style of living and the general expectations
of wives, who, in these times, are rather
unemployed ladies than wives or helpmates.
If wives were what they used to :be, and
would de as they used to do, I should marry,
and I eould afford te marry."
Another witness has been put by us on
the stand upon this subject, and he says he
is "afraid to marry a city girl, and country
girls lhe is not acquainted with thorn, nor
has he time to cultivate their acquaintance.
City girls are pretty playthings," he says,
"abut they are not hopeful candidates for
wives. They knowv howv to sing, to play
upon instruments, to dance and to dress.
They are gifted in small talk, are agreeable
companions for an hour, but have not the
substantial qualities for wives. They do
not know how to make good bread, nor
even how to superintend the cook. They
do not understand domestic duties generally,
nor how to render home attractive and
happy. There are exceptions to these
cases, but the exceptions are so rare, that
my chance wvould he next to none of be
coming acquainted wvith a lady whlo would
be an exception to the generally existing
Another old married gentleman adds his
observation and experience as follows:
" young men, generally, dare not, and can
not afford to marry in these days, for the
expense of house-keeping are such that they
cannot meet them. A young married wo
man in the cities, or their neighborhood,
must dress a good deal, must have costly
furniture, and a house to correspond; must
keep twvo or certainly one female domestic,
and live in style, and keep up appearances.
On the contrary, my wife, wvhom I married
when a young man, was from the beginning.
a wife, a helmate to me. She took care of
all I brought into the house. She worked
willingly and diligently with her hands.
She did her full share in labor, in saving,
and in planning; so that the handsome for
tune I now possess might be accumulated."
Enough on the score of testimony.
Observation bears us out in saying that
good wives are a w~ant of the times. They
may be found among the mountains of Ver
mont, and among the hills of Newv Hamp
shire, and amid the forests of Maine; but
they are not plenty hereabouts. Not long
ago, an active merchant in this city sicken
ed and died, and it was attributed very much
to his pecuniary embarrassments'. He was
once reputed to be wel-to-do in the world.
His family were extravagant, very extrava
gant. The merchant lived up to his income,
and beyond it, wheni the hard times came,
and the result was business, ruin and death,
his wvife is said to have been far more guilty
than he, in bringing him to such an end.
This is a representative of many similar
cases. Other men do not die a natural, but
only a business death, which some honora
ble merchants think is worse than a natural
death. How many failures, could the cause
of them be searched into might be attri
buted properly to the want of good domes
tic and economical wives.
The experience of many a husband as he
traces these lines, will respond to the truth
off;lfe'. How vain for a man "to rise'
early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of
sorrows," if he has a wife who is a help
eat, help-spend, help-waste instead of a
It is obvious, that good wives are a want
of the times, from .the fact that our young
men to so great au extent, do not marry
for "marriage is honorable in all," and al
niost all yong m~ws would-seek the honora
ble state of matrimony, if they could find
those good wives that their income would
support. If any one will take the pains to
look-abroad, especially is our cities, he will
aind that yng men do not marry, a gen
erally as they used to do, and we believe
the true and principal cause has been hinted
What a blessing was there bestowed on
man, when the Supreme Being in his good
ness and bent volence, created woman to be
his partner in life, the sharer of his sorrows
and afflictions, the consoler of his grief, and
a check on all of those passions, which in
duee him to do evil and transgress the laws
of that Almighty Power, who bestowed
upon him this great and inestimable blessing.
How dreary would be man's lire if it were
not for woman. She who can ever overlook
his every fault, sustain and bear with him,
though crime stain his brain, even unto the
last, and then if need be, will lay down her
precious life, that his might be saved. How
often do we behold her, when abused and
insulted by some cruel monster, who is un
worthy to be called man, still standing by
him in the hour of trouble, receiving that
abuse and insult with the never dying hope,
that perhaps he will ere long turn from his
evil ways, and seek the path of honor and
rectitude, until, as the last sad stroke, she
enters an untimely grave, by the blood
stained hand of that ruffian who solemnly
swore at the marriage altar, to live, cherish,
and protect her, until death, from whence
there is no relief, should finally and forever
part them in this sin cursed world. How
often do we see her trusting in the honor of
man, until at last she is robbed of that
p:iceless yem-her virtue-and then to
shield herself from disgrace and ignominy
destroys herself by her own hand, and that
villain who has caused her to do this, is
still considered as an honest and upright
man, by most, if not all of mankind. Shame,
0! shame, on such a state of things, espe
cially in an enlightened land, where know.
ledge is shed abroad, and religion pretends
to have an influence. Arise-Arise, 0 ! ye,
that still have a least spark of humanity re
maining in your veins, and shake off this
unhallowed notion, and then go on until
woman shall be elevated to that high stand
upon which the -Almighty designed she
should be placed, and then will ye be well
vorthy the sacred name of mankind.
A IfoTHEiR's TrEAR.-Thero is a touch
ing sweetness in a mother's tears, when
they fall upon the face of her dying babe,
which no eve can behold without imbibing
its influence. Upon such hallowed ground
the foot of profanity dares not approach.
Infidelity itself is silent and forbears its
scoffings. And here woman displays not
her weakness, but her strength of attach.

be realized. It is perrennial, dependent on

and sunshine-it knows no shadow of turn.
ing. A father, when he sees his child going
down to the dark valley, will weep when
the shadow of death has fully come over
him; and as the last parting nell falls on his I
ear, he may say. "1 go down to the grave
or my son mourning." But the hurry of
business drawvs him awvay ; the tear is wiped
from his eyes and if, wvhen lie turns from
his fire side, the vacancy in the family circle
reminds him of his loss, the succeeding day
blunts the poignancy of his grief, until at
length it finds no permanent sea in his
breast. Not so with her who has borne
and nourished the tender blossom, it lives in
the heart wvhere it wvas first entwvined in the
dreaming hours of night. She sees its play
ful mirth or hears its plaintive cries ; she
seeks it in the morning, and goes to the
grave to weep there.
SIMPLICITY IN DREss.-Those who think
that in order to dress well it is necessary to
dress extravagantly or grandly, make a
great mistake. Nothing so well becomes
true feminine beauty as simplicity. We
have seen many a remarkably fine person
robbed of its true eflect by being over
dressed. Nothing is more unbecoming than
overloading beauty. TIhe stern simplicity
of the classic tastes is seen in the old
statues and pictures painted by men of su
perior artistic genius. In Athens, the la
dies wvere not gaudily, but simply arrayed,
and we doubt whether any ladies have ever
excited more admiration. So also the noble
old Romans, wvhose superb forms wvere
gazed on delightedly by men worthy of1
them, 'were always very plainly dressed
Fashion often presents the hues of the but

Hydrophobia is quite prevalent in France
this summer. Mr. Kendall, in his last letter
to the Picayune, tells the following story :
" On one of the hottest of the recent hot
days, Taxile, who is a very fat man, got
into the coupe of a diligence running to
Arpajon, and there found another man as
fat as himself. The coupe held but three
ordinary persons-there was barely roomn
and noe comfort even for the twvo then itn
possession-but soon Rajou stopped the
vehicle and crowded himiself in. Under
such circumstances the latter shtould have
been quiet, should have accommodated hitm
self to any physical discomfort of his own
choosing ; but beitng a wag, he bethought
him or a pilan to get the coupe all to him
self. Seating himself betwveen the two fat
men, he began to eye them in a sinister man

work gritting and grinding his teeth as with

It may readily be conceived that the situa
tion of the two fat men wvas now anythitng
but pleasant or agreeable, but Taxile was
Ithe first to speak:
" What is the matter with you, my good
mani and what do you roll your eyes about
and grind your teeth in that savage manner
" I hope I shall not bite you !" respotnded
Rajou, apparantly with great effort; I will
endeavor net to bite either of you, but am
not responsible for consequences!
"Bite us! mon Dienu!" ejaculated both
the fat men in a breath; " you haven't got
the hydrophobia, have you I"
"Il-I-I hope tnot," continued Rajou,
still gritting his teeth, " but I was bityj
a tmad dog a few days since, and I begin to
think I have the premonitory symptoms of
" In less than two seconds after this last
remark Rajou had the coupe all to himself,
while the two fat men were seen bolting
across the fields as though forty -mad dogs
were after them, and puffing and blowing
like porpoise. The affair might have ended

BLIND TO HIS OWN INTEEEST.
The St. Louis Intelligencer relates the
following amusing incident as having occur
red there a few days ago:
One of the Health's sprinkling wagons,
used to dampen the streets of our city by
water from a large reservoir, containing
several hogsheads, was proceeding slowly
down Fourth street, engaged in the laudable
task of flooring the dust, when the attention
of a raw Hoosier was attracted towards the
singular looking vehicle.
"Hullo, stranger," said he, addressing
himself quite audibly to the driver, "you're
losing all of your water thar!"
No answer was made by the person ad
"1 say old hoss," said the Hoosior, "you're
losing water right smart thar, I tell you, and
I'll be dog.on'd if your tub won't be dry,
next thing you know."
The driver was still silent. The stranger
again addressed John ;
" Look here, you fool, don't you see that
somethin's broke loose with your old cistern
on wheels, and that all o' your water is
leaking out ?"
Still the driver was s, -nd e Hoosier
turned away in disgust, b..

A GENTLE3MAN having engaged to fight
a main of cocks, directed his feeder in the
country, wvho was an irishmen, to pick out
two of his best and bring themi to town.
Paddy made his selection, put the two into
a bag and brought them with him in the wag
on. When they arrived, it was found that on
their journey they had almost torn each to
pieces; on which Paddy wvas severely taken
to task for his stupidity in putting both cocks
into one bag. " Indeed-" said the honest
liberniani, " I thought there was no danger
of their falling out, as they were going to
fight on the same side."
AN IntsMNar called on a lady and gen

the purpose of getting some tea and tobacco.
