"Let our just Censures
Attend the True Event."
BY J. A. SELBY. COLUMBIA, S. C., WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL 17, 1872. VOL. VIII-NO. 24.
. Dolly Vardo?.
Every now and then a whim seizes the
public nudL-takes possession of people's
?enses, though why or wherefore it
would be hard to say; but when once it
has got a fair hold it has to be humored
% until it is worn out or supplanted by
some othor novelty. ? At tho present mo?
ment the name which predominates
everywhere, whioh is advertised in the
papers, posted on walle in bills in large
type, stuck up in the windows of dry
goods stores, and heard in everybody's
month, is that of Dolly Varden, the
sprightly, coquettish heroine of Diakons'
historical novel "Barnaby Budge."
But the novel was written thirty years
ago, and there seems to be no apparent
reason why the London locksmith's pret?
ty daughter should all of a sudden start
out into popnlarity greater than she en?
joyed when she was first introduced to
the world. She was then mado the sub?
ject of many a picture, and the celebrated
artist Maclise, at' the suggestion and
under the guidance of his friend Dickens,
painted what may be called a portrait ot
her, if there can be such a thing as the
portrait of an imaginary oharaoter. It
wus, however, a realization on canvas of
the conoeption of the author, and it has
given to her tho bodily form and the
costume by whioh she will henceforth be
Just as wo form but one conception
now of Uncle Toby and the widow Wad
man, or of Sir Boger de Goverly and tho
Spectator, or of Mr. Pickwick and Sam
Weller, in consequence of our familiari?
ty with the celebrated pictures and illus?
trations in whioh they are represented,
so will our notion of Dolly Varden bo
limited to that of the artist, combined
with the description whioh Dickens bas
given her. In this she appears ia a
"cherry-colored" hood and clonk and a
hat trimmed with oherry-colored ribbon,
&o. But, graceful and attractive as she
is, there is nothing in common between
her and the young ladies of the present
day, who have their own peculiar graco
and attractiveness. She lived and flou?
rished while our war of independence
was going on, and in which ber lover
lost an arm. To find nny one who would
resomblo her, we should have to go back
to our great-grand-mother's time; and
herein is a partial mystery of the Dolly
Varden furore. Some one-in all proba?
bility an enterprising dressmaker
started the notion that one of tbe most
striking novelties in the way of costume
for ladies would be a revival of the anti?
quated flowered chintz overskirt worn by
English Indies io the middle of the last
century, and it has been as successful a
hit as any that has been made for nome
Accordingly, the low-bodied dress,
with skirts well looped up, sleeves tight
to the elbow,, and then suddenly assum?
ing the dimensions of sacks, leaving thc
portion of the arm below the elbow bate!
is to be the costume of the season, a
home, it is to be hoped, for it would
Boarcely do for walking or riding in with'
ont some modification. And patterns ol
every hue and every variety of sprig and
flower are displayed in the store windows,
to the no little anxiety of paterfamilias,
who begins to wonder what sort of ap
pearanco his women folk are going to as
sumo when they step forth out of tin
hands of the modiste, with their stravi
hats looped up on one side, a la Dolly,
and their flowered skirts looped up ot
both sides, displaying the scarlet o;
brown under-gnrment, in which om
great-graud-mothers delighted, am
whioh they wore short so as to displa;
the open clocks of their red stocking
and the shining silver buokles of then
And along with Dolly Varden bats am
dresses come Dolly Varden jewelry am
knick-knacks. It was an ingenious ide;
to revive all this iu the name of Dicken:
popular heroine, but it might as wei
have been done iu tho name of Clarisa
Harlowe, or Sophia Western, or Eveline
or Olivia Primrose, or any other hero
ino of tho period, for they all dressei
in tho same costume as Dolly Vardo
did. So far, indeed, as looped skirt
are concerned, they have been in vogue
more or less, for n century and a hal!
and at this very time are fashionable i
walking dresses. The Dolly Varde
overskirt is not so much a novelty i
itself; the attraction of it is to be found
one may supposo, in the flowered pa
tern of the material of which it is madi
Our fashionable belles have scarcely ri
covered from tho "Grecian bend;" an
the luxuriance of their present Pompi
door overdresses makes tho transition I
tho tight bodice, low bosom and bat
arms of Dolly Varden rather snddei
Very young ladieB will doubtless expei
to double their attractions-if such
thing be possible-in their Dolly Vardi
costume. And ladies of moro mutin
ago who rotain their youthful appou
ance, ns many do, may also appear 1
advantage in it-ai home.

A SritiNa FEVER.-Abont this lin
look out for tho cry of "reform."
will come from all kinds of people. Yt
will be surprised that those whose who
livelihood has boon gained, nod who
fortunes have grown hugo from tl
practico of jobbery, bribery and corm
tion, should now profess a longing f
a return to honesty, purity and econ
my. Wheo you remember that tho fi
brings with it tho goneral election y<
will coaso to wonder. Tho reform fov
is very prevalent biennially, and al wa
Bets ia about this time. It rages un
the second Tuesday in October, when
subsides, and there is seldom any reta
of it for tho next eighteen monti:
Even in the spring previous to t!
election it is not dangerous and may 1
allayed by a pill culled "a ring nomin
tion," nnd may bo much mitigated by
sop called "a promise of a faithing."
There aro only thirty-one convict
murderers in tho Michigan State priso
but then it's not much of a year f
murderers out there.
How TO Do IT.-The following ob?
servations on diet, habit, etc., will bo
found quite valuable as any: Quinino
should not be eaten after a hearty meal
of India rubber; tho spermaceti con?
tained in the former will unite with tho
oxalic acid of the latter, aud wagon
grease will be evolved with disastrous re?
sults. Defore taking a bath the entire
body should be oarefuliy washed.
Then lay on a coating of tar and get
into the water. It can't touch you any?
where. It is not so fashionable as it was
to chop ii cord of wood beforo breakfast;
none but very old men, who cling to tho
tradition of youth liko a lean leach to a
stuffed frog, ever do it, and they com?
monly perish at it. Getting out of bed
in a perspiration is to bo avoided
always lie in bed as long as you can find
any excuso for it. Nothing is moro in?
jurious than tho ordinary method of
going up stairs; it causes tho alkali in
tho blood to settlo in the corns, produc?
ing Arianism and straugulation. Tho
proper way is to lie on your stomach
and go up feet first. Never sleep with
your eyes shut; it is a degenerato habit.
Bathing, aB intimated above, is conduct?
ed on a wrong principle. It is proba?
ble that the custom might bo advan?
tageously abolished altogether. Bath?
houses and bathing-rooms in dwellings
are a thing of recent growth. Our grand?
fathers seldom or never bathed; and it
is conoeeded that they lived to be seve?
ral hundred years old. Potatoes should
always bo eaten with skins on ; skins
contain bicarbonate of mucilage, which
is just what tho liver requires. When
tho custom of giving the skins to the
poor originated, ecience was almost
wholly unknown. There aro moro
things it would be well to know, but a
strict compliance with the rules already
given will enable you to live as long as
you will wish to. Further instructions
would not prolong your misery.
TUE COLOII QUESTION.-Tho color
question is agitating the Free Masons in
New Jersey. Two years ago application
was made to the Grand Lodge of the
State for a charter for a new lodge in
Newark, to be called Alpha Lodge. It
having been reported that the new lodge
intended to initiate colored mon, the ap?
plicants were questioned on that point,
and declared the report false. A charter
was granted to the new lodge, on receiv?
ing which proposals for membership
from a dozen colored men were enter?
tained. This created great excitement
among the white Masons throughout the
State, and on the night when the candi?
dates were to be balloted for, the Grand
Marshal of the State appeared by order
of the Grand Master, and demanded the
charter of the lodge. He received it,
and Alpha Lodge was formally suspend?
ed. The matter came up at the last ses?
sion of the Grand Lodge of New Jersey,
aud, after a sharp discussion, tho char?
ter of Alpha Lodge was restored by a
veto of 112 to 103. Alpha Lodge then
elected the colored candidates, and bo?
gan to give them their degrees. This
action aroused the white Masons to new
elTbrts. Trenton Lodge, No. 5, imme?
diately petitioned tho Grand Master to
call a special communication of the
Grand Lodge to reconsider its action,
and a united effort wus made to again
cecino tho revocation of tho charter of
Alpha Lodge. The effort has failed.
Grund Master Paine has refused to con?
vene the Grand Lodge. Meanwhile
Alpha Lodge had given its colored breth?
ren the degree of fellow craft, and on
Monday last two black men were raised,
through the aid and assistance of their
white brethren, to tho sublime degree of
Everybody baa heurd of Moigan. the
man who was murdered, exported, spi?
rited away, smothered, maimed, and in
all possible ways maltreated by the Free
Masons. Everybody, too, has heard of
how travelers in Egypt, Malta and India
have found him alive and well at each of
those places, now living as au humble
dervish, now as a knight, and now as a
lonely hermit. Everybody will therefore
he surprised-or not-to hear tho San
Francisco Examiner say that Mr. H.,
a lawyer of San Francisco, told his sou
long ugo that Morgan was not killed,
but was put on board of a British man
of-war. From this son tho Examiner IISB
learned that iu 18-18 he, tho eou of Mr.
H., went to Iloburtowu, in Van I) ie man's
Land, and there mot au old frieud with
whom he couvorsed about Morgan. Tho
old friend laughed aud said, "Morgan is
living here; I will introduce you lo him."
And so ho took him to tho office of the
Hobartown Advertiser, where ho met the
veritablo Morgan, who told him that ho
could not return to America, evon if ho
would. Ile could not get a permit, and
oven could he do so ho would bo killed

is yet ulive and well.
A clergyman on exchange found a note
in tho Biblo to tho effect that Brother A.
requested the prayers of the church,
that tho loss of his wifo might be blessed
to him, &o. Tho preacher prayed most
fervently. To his amazement and morti?
fication bo fouud that tho note hud lain

gentleman was on this Sabbath sitting
with a new wife iu tho congregation.

losophor, "ho'w Dod could put tho stir
into tho bee without dittiog his iiogei
