A TR*Drrro.-It has been a question for
discussion among philosophers, how it hap
pens, that women, naturally amiable, when
aroused, can say such sharp and nenetrating
'things. The mystery was solved not long
since, by the discovery of some very old ar
-chieves, that gives the following expl-mantion
of' the matter. It is said that when Lot sep
arated from Abraham, that he determined to
invest his surplus funds in real esta te, and as
the city ofSodom presenteel an inviting field,
he turned his face thither,and there located.
But so great was the wickedness oIf the peo
ple, that it was determined by the Creautor of
the UniverseA-o destroy the piace; accordingly
messengers were sent to lead Lot anid his
family out; they departed r'eluctantly; and
Mrs. Lot giving her bonnet box to a servant to
bring along, was watching and stoppkug for
her and scolding withal, when she was suid
denly turned mnto a pillar of salt. Thus by
a strange and wonderful sympathy', a wo
man's tongue, even to this day is quite salty',
whenever she feels disposed to convert it into
a saline weapon, especially, if her bon:net is
missin.g or a subject of critique.-(Sovthiern
