A Paragraph for the Ladieg.
With the advent of spring, every wo*
man wvho has taste and culture is cx
pected to conform to the deseription of
that woman who "looketh to the ways
of her household." Some seem to think~
this consists wholly in house-cleaning,
carpet-shaking, bug- killing, pantaloon'
patching, dress-turning,or general-over
turning. It is not so however. To put
the house in order other things are in
order. A nicely furnished table is one
essential ; fine china, crockery an<
glass-ware are charming aids to the en
joyment of a meal, the pheasing effeelc
on the eye acting with a satisfying sense
on the stomach, and one crosses leg
under the table-that is the male feed
er-without a single thought as to the~
price of corn. Bedlrooms and kitchenm
also need some article, the one foi

The Legislative appropriation bill
vs yesterday presented to the House.
!has the amendments as to juries,

On this last named bill, or, rather,

of troojps at the polls, there is now go
ogon in the House a highly interest
i" debate. Yesterd ay Representative

'a: Messrs. Chalmers and Muldrow,

better, and he had many times, with
i: iarty associates, done exactly what
hic.ow denounced. But of all of our
Irublic men few have a greater reputa

The Senate yesterday did well in
