tears stealing to the outward edge of her

SOCIAL MANNtERS IN AMERTCA.
HINTS Foil LADIES AND GENiLE .
The New York Post hims been ipermitted to I
print a few extracts from n utiptiubli-hed .
manuscript on social matiners ill thik countrY,
from which we take the fullowing hints to I
ladies and geitleien:
When you heara man insisting upon pr it.;
of etiquette and fashion ; wondering, f1or in.
stance, how periople can eat with steel forks
and survive it, or what charms existence has
for persons who dine at three without soup...
af bh ein tt t didfaljs o Sei M
the table cloth is no, the place to put your 0
5alt. Bread is the only comestibl which
the etnstom of well-bred people permits to ie
laid off from your phlte. 1
If you break a vast; or statuelte, or anY it
little etagere knick-knack in the house of an,
aqliinitince, never miid it. Treat it as a
matter of no conseqnencve ; even if you know
that it wrings his pocket. b
Always precede a lady in going tip stairs.
This inaxii is a legacy rrom a maiden aunt.
When vou enter a public room the French a
practice ot raixing the hat, as a general sal- i
titition, is mnch to be commended. I
Never ask your wife to sing for a friend.
Ten to one lie detests vocal music, unless oh 0
the highest order. Show, but do not show b)
off, your children to strangers. Recollect
in the matter of children how man vare born (i
every hour, each one almost as reimarkable
as yours in the eyes of its papa and mam
It is har.l to say which has the most elown- h
ish appearanuce ; to move the lips in silent
read ing ; or to wet the tinge~r ini turnling over g
the le'aves of the book.
Do not go to an evening party ini blackn
gloves even if youi have lost a relation. If
your feelings are too deeply lacerated for
yellowv kids, stay at home.
Keep youri nails cut short. None but b~ar
her's boys and blacklegs are entitled to the
distinctiont of a long Chiniese talon. When
presented, never ofrer your hatnd ; if offered
to you on such an occasion, touch it slighitly.
Wlhien you meet a friend in a public place, I
do0 nort shiout his name so that every by
stander may know who lie is. Never ask a
frientd the ptrice of a thing lie has bought, nor
prais things by their prices.
Cultivate the good will of wveakc-minded,
tatlkaitive people. Thley will lbe as uiseful as|
the parrots ot A psethus. lie taught his birdsj
to repeatt "' A p ethuis is a god,"' and let them'i
fLy. Yonr unifeathered bipeds can be taught i
by a lit tle kindnecss and attention, and taunghti
without pains, to proclaim in house antd high- I
way. " illank is an excellent fellow." If this,
is said often enough, no matter by whiom,
some one is sure to believe it.
Moderation is the best general rule for con
duct in social life. Moderaitionlii inmanners,
modheraltibn in language, moderation ini dress,
mioderationi in feelinig, moderation in every,
thing but personal ineatness. With these, a
kind atnd yielding spirit, and a decent shatre
of self-resp~ect, a man cani gtid~e smoothly
through the world, if not pletaantly. Otto
last cousel-a hard one to follow-learn
to grow old gracefully.
S.vE YOUR EAnsIGss.-Thie practice
which apprentices, clerks, amid others have,
of spending their earnings as fast as they
accumulate, is one great reason why so
many never attain a positioni above mnedi
oertyinlie.A peso wvho receives but a
small cmensatiotn for his services, will,
with a little care over his exchequer, and a
system of regularity in his expeniditures, find
at the end of the year lie is prepared to en
couniter ally enmergencey or mishap. But, asI
a general thing, they mantage to get rid of
their earninigs qtuite as quick ias they are due,
thus leavinig them wholly un~preptared for
emergetncies, by sickness or otherwise. A
systemt of curtailing unnecessary expenses,
if adopted by our yotunger folks, womuld bril g
around the most happy and gratifyinig re
suits, and be the mneans of' raisimn" to emi
nience amnd statnditng in society, manty who
now~ have coniruacted the habit of parting
with their earnings so readily anid foolishily
-for the habit of keeping continuailly int

ad The 1nmber for the first quarter lis ar.
he rived, and presents a varied table ofcontents.
nThe fifth article, on American Slavery
and Emancipation bty the Free States, is one
to which we, and every other true Southern
man, have a right andh onght to object.
r- -The effect which this article is caleulated to
have upon the minds of those already pre.
jiiliced against the institution is to strength.
o en and confirm that opposition. It is a
at subject with which, we believe English au
thors, editors and statesmen have nothing to
m do. When it relates to the Southern States,
it is an assumption of power which they
n, ought not, and should not presume to take,
isbut it seems that the English people, as well
,s the Northern peoplo, are determined to
press the i sue of this question upon the
people of the South, uitil it will crime
either to a total emancipation of the slaves
n -a relinquishment of every right guaran
'Iteed in the Constitution under which we
d live, or a determination to maintain our
rights under any, and at every sacrifice.
s This article is a highly offensive one, and
we do riot hesitate to condemn it, and place
e the Westminster Review where it belongs.
among the incendiary publications of the
it North, and as a fit companion for the even.
- ing fireside of Horace Mann, Garrisen &
e Co. Southern men have no business to
patronize it, and Southern Editors who puff
it ought to he indicted. It is true we have,
in necordance with the terms proposed by
Leonard Scott & Co., advertised the B.itish
Reviews, &c., in common with many of our
brethren of the Press. And they have sne
ceeded in obtaining a large amount of no.
toriety, which is all they want, and we have
i done what we ought not to have done, and
shall not do ngain, and therefore shall cease
* our advertisements, and shall e'ideavor, so
far as we can, to undo what we may have
P unne towards assisting in the circulation of

TirE " New York Times," a Free Soil p-a
per, is trying to find a selfish motive for the
opposition of Southern gentlemen to the
annexation of Cuba. And accordingly it
attributes the opposition expressed to the
comparatively mild condition of slavery in
the Island.. We quote:

slavery, should be unwilling to have a State
added to the Union, in which the institution
exists in so modified a form ; while the op.
ponents of slavery may very well favor its
accession on account of the influence it
would be likely to exert upon the condition
of the slaves in the other Southern States.
It is known, also, that many of the influen
tial planters of Cuba, are in favor of gradual
emancipation : " Freedom to every child c
born of slave parents after a given date,
and total emancipation to all who survive r
twenty-five years," was the spirit of a toast
given a year or two since at a dinner of
wealthy planters in Havana; and such is I
believed, by mamny who are well informed, t" I
be tle view of a large portion of the Cubans
in whose hands at some future day will rest
the destiny of slavery in their native isle." t

MAJ. PRUY-FEDUAL OFFICE
This gentleman (Editor of the Greenville

of 14th inst., on his way to Washin ton
City, remarks: " My visit to Washingto is
one of fiendship, and professional, not for
the purpose of seeking office, which might
he supposed, from the time the visit is made.
The disavowal I make, as ny friend, Col.
Keiti, did, some years ago, when he called
on Mr. Blancroft, Secretary of the Navy ; he
endorsed on his card that lie was "no appli
cant for office." The Secretary of the Navy
immediately told Col. Keitt that his endorse
ment was unnecessary, as he saw from his
card that he was from South Carolina, and
that the South Carolinians were no Office
Seekers. I hope my friends in Greenville
will entertain the same favorable opinion of
the Senior Editor of the Patriot."
