this season a Roman triumph--. 'Fhe ladies,
by th~at union which is strength, have prac

hooping. themselves (in.. the, language of
Daniel Webster) to the fullest extent.. And
not- only 'do they take' possession of' the
streets of.-our cities; thsse: victorious' hoops,
but in our rural'- distriot they 'pass out: of

our villages they. sail up the aisles of every

I might state, -but - I - woald hardly rely
upon a reason, which a good-natured friend
suggested in behalf of a booped skirt, name

cases' as a life-preserver. If a lady thus
robed' should happen to- fail down from the
roof of a houset the-full-spread skirt would
let her dirnto~'Thegnd' as 'gently as
thougshe-laady had on a pair' of angel's

for-some f'air-nierrnaid, or for another Venus

from the waters. - She would thus ride upon
the wing of the wind, and sit as a'queen
upon the'floodsr. ---
Bat eld-fogyism grows red in 'the. face at
all novelties, and puts its sharp nose into
every :musty record of the past in-searech of
precedents. -It worships the former times,
an~d deems thet the fashion of those times,
having no savor of young.America, must be
only wrise'-arid good. =Bnt' the tiinid, .old

Anne and the accomplished ladies of- her
court stood out with hoops to the formida
ble dimensions of havstacks, and doubtless
the great Marlborough threaded with the
mnazes of many a dance.
And in later times, and in our own land,
in the very golden age of American history,
these skirts sat in the lap of the Father ot'

ington, who, with her dressed back from her

represented to us .in the ieture as a very

they'do look- amaringly like young Amo icn,
and in keeping with the fas times in whichl
we live, these hoops. belong in famct to the

It is enough for me, though excessively
timid, that my good old grandmother wore
hoops and by so doing. sanctified them.

The question at issue, if it be at issue,
reduces itself, then, to one merely of fact
whether hooped skirts do impart the proper.
contour to the female form. A lady passed
my window the other day upon whom I
levelled the battery of curious and oliserv.
Ia her notions on this subject she was of
the former sehool. Tall she wasand thin
even unto lankness. As the day was ex.
cessively -warm, though discarding or es-.
chewing hoops she had tbo much sense to
make. berself a mirtyr 'to' beauty 6y bear
ing along the strets the . heavy cross of .a
half a dozen skirts, or of even one. Her
dreass therefore, '(of rich materials. I might
add), hung straight down to her feet, cling.
ing closely about her form. So Gilsa Scrog
gin's ghost must have looked in its winding
sheet. And as luck wvouid have it, that I
might enjoy- the- opportunity' of instituting
a comparison, a' young- lady, admirably
hoopied in the'present style, camne by a mo

No'-young lady can -he too well instructed
in any thing that will affect the comfort of
a family. Whatever position in society she
occupies, she needs a practical knowledge
of the- duties of a housekeeper. She may
be placed in such circumstances that it will
be unnecessgary 'for her to 'perform miuch
domestic,,laby;. hut. on this account she
needs-no. less .knowvledge than if she was
obliged to preside personally over the cook
ing-stos'e and pantry. -Indeed, I have often
thought it' was more difficult to direct others,
and requires more' experience, than~ to do
the same work with our own hands.
lothers are frequently so : nice and par
icular, that they do not like to give up any
part of their care to their children. This
is a great mistake'in 'their arrangement, for
they are often bfirdened w ith labor and
need relief. Children shouldhbe early taught
to make themselves useful-to assist their
parents in every way in their power, and
consider It a privilege to do so.
Young people cannot realize the impor
tance of a. thorough knowledge of house.
wiferyv; but those who have suffered the in
conveniences and mortifications of ignorance,
can well appreciate it. Children should be
early indulged in their disposition to bake
and expel-Inent in icookiig in various ways.
It is often but a' "tublesime help" they
afford, still it is a' great advantage to thorn.
I know a little girl, who, at nine years old,
made a loaf of bread ev'ery week during
the winter. Her mother taught her how
much yeast and'flour to use, and she became
quite. an expert. lter.. Whenever she is
disposed to try her skill in making.simple
cake or pies, she is permitted to do so. She
is thus, while amusing herself, rearning an
important lesson. Her mother calls .her
" little housekeeper," and often permits her
to get what is necessary for the table.' She
hangs the keys by her side, and very musi
al is their jingling to her ears. I think,
before abe is out of her teene, upon which
she has not yet entered, that she will have
some idea how to cook.
Some mothers. give their daughters..the
care of housekeeping each a week by turns.
Iseems to me a good arrangenment, and a
most useful part of their education.
Domestic labor is by no means incompati
lle with the highest degree of refinement
and mental culture. Many of the most
elegant and accomplished wvomen I have
known, have looked well 'to their household
duties, and have honored themselves and
their husbands by so doing.-Western Ag.
