-iIIM DMENTS TO WIVES.
We have been shown a series of ten corn.
mandmients drawn up for California wives
which occupy one page of a letter sheet,
seat from El Dorado. Some of them would
answer for this region quite as well as Cali
fornia, and we therefore copy :
Thou shalt not " put on sirs'' of self im
portance, nor indulge in clay-dreams of ex
travagance, nor allow thy vanity and love of
dress to turn thy head and unfit thee for the
sober duties of life, or make thee merely an
expensive toy and walking advertisement of
the latest fashions.
Thou shalt not consider it fashionable,
cleanly or economical, to sweep the streets
with $100 dresses-when at home thou con
;idered thyself fortunate to get calico-nor
to promenade muddy sidewalks in long satin
robes and bedraggled underclothes; nor to
wear jewels or flowers on thy head while
thy feet go " tipety-click" in buskin shoes
run down at the heel and discover to stran
gers the holes in thy stockings.
Thou shalt not starve thyself and family
29 days out of 30, to feast thy circle and
give a party ; nor by the purchase of expen
sive gew-gaws and finery keep thyself and
husband poor; nor run up bills for frills and
furbeloes while the dry goods merchants and
thy husband are at their wits' end how to
pay their way; nor spend hard earnings
foolishly ; nor lose a balf day shopping, to
invest four bits. Neither shalt thou devour
all thy savings at cotillion parties and balls ;
nor waste thy substance by improvidence or
Thou shat not substitute sour looks for thy
pickles ; nor a fiery temper for stove-wood ;
nor cross words for kindlingls; nor trifling
talk for light bread; nor tsre language for
desert; nor excuses for anything. Neither
shalt thou serve op cold looks or cold meals
for breakfast ; nor scoldings and hard pota
toes for dinner; nor what remains of the
other two meals for supper--no, not even on
washing days. Neither shalt thou allow
hard feelings or unwashed dishes to accu
mulate ; nor withhold either secrets or shirt
buttons from the bosom of thy husband ;
and never omit kindness of any kind.
Thou shalt not neglect to make thy person
and thy home attractive-that when thy hus
band cometh from his daily toil, or business
care, thy cheering looks of loving welcome
siay greet bis footsteps at the cottage door
and charm him into forgetfulness of all but
thee. And should he be unfortunate-as
many are-thou shalt not increse his sorrows
-as many do.-by weeping and repining;
but with all thy noblest sympathy and wo.
manly love, seek to lift the heavy burden
from his manly heart ; and thus renewed,
again to dare the rugged and slippery steep
that leads to fortune and success--helieving
"there's no such word as fail," while thou
art near to cheer him on, and share with him
A Rour. Lioar.-Our lady readers/wvill
be interested in the followinig description of
the English Princess Royal, Victoria's eldest
daughter, from the pen of a correspondent
of an Aberdeen Journal:
" With the remembrance, as it had been
yesterday, of the hoom of the guns which
announiced her birth, I was scarcely prepared
to find her a fine grown wroman, taller by a
couple of inches. than her mother, and car
rying herself with the ease ar:d grace of
womanhood. It is no stretch of loyalty or
courtesy to call the Princess Royal pretty.
She is perfectly love. The regularity of
her features. perfect. Hler eyes are large
and full of intelligensce, imparting to her face
that sort of merry aspet which inidicates
good humor. The nose and mouth are deli'
eately and exquisitely formed, the latter giv
ing effect of great sweetness. The Princess
is mnore like her father than her miothser. She
is like the Queen in nothing lint her nose. In
all other respects she is a female image of
her father. I should add, as interesting to
your lady readers, that she wears her hair
slightly off her forehead; not pushed back
in the Eugenic fashion, but brushed latitudi
nally from the temples, and raised at thme
sides above thme ear in bandeaus (really the
ladies must excuse me if I ams talking non
sense, for I have not given that hostage to
fortune which would enable nme to spenk ex
cathedra ) Well, at any rate, the Princess
is fair enough and lovely enough to be the
heroine of a fairy tale, andt thme Prince Frede
ric should consider himself a lucky fellow."
NOT Hrs MOrUE.-There was a pine
coffin borne through the drifting snsows. At
the grave's verge the lid was thrown back,
and the face of the sleeper was revealed.
it was a face marked with time and care
there was not a line of beauty in it ; it was
the countenance of a poor, plain, oldl woman.
And yet I beard bitter sobs andi choking
sighs not far from m~y elbow, and looking up
I saw the children of the deceased approach.

was dear and beautiful to thenm. The affec

investing it with a degree of loveliness, and
wvas there ever a kind, gentle mother who
was not beautiful in her children's estimna
The hair which is tucked away under the
muslin cap, miny be thickly threaded withs
silver-the forehead may be furrowed, and
the eye lustreless, still it is associated ini the
mind of the child, with a love which never
slumbered, and a gentleness which nothing
Ihow earelessly the sexton tramped around
the grave, treading thme fresh earth in among
the new fallen snow ! it was not his moother

will he resort to his merchandise or his farmo,
fly over lands, sail upon seas, meet difficulty
and encounter danger if he knows he is not
spending his strength in vain, but his labor
will be rewarded by the sweets of' home.
Solicitude and disappointment enter the hsis.

months of darkness and distress, nso sytmpa

An exchange says, " God intended all
woman to be beautiful as muds as lie did

heo intended they should become they wvould

For a girl to expect to be handsome with the
action of her; lung depensden't on the expan

absurl as to look for tulips in a snow banik,

Woman. is, indeed, a bright and beauti
ful creature. Where she is there is a para
dise; where she is not there is a desert. Her
smile inspires love, and raises human nature
nearer to the immortal source of its being.
Her sweet and tender heart gives life and
soul to dead and senseless things. She is
the ladder by which we climb from earth up
to heaven. She is the practical teacher of
mankind, and the world would be void with
out her. She is more a celestial than a ter.
restrial being-charming and amiable as a
girl, dutiful as a mother. She is the balsam
of a man's lif,-his faithful counsellor and
pillow. She can impart all the pleasures to
his cares of friendship, all the enjoyment of
sense and reason, and all tie sweets of life."
