MARRIED OUR DRESS-MAKER.
BY MRS. V. F. TOWNSEND.
"But the way is so long, Miss Soott," ear
neatly pleaded the pretty little dress maker,
"and ycu know I would not have remained so
late, but you were so desirous that your blue
dress should be finished t ti is evening. If you
will lei Tout accontpiiny me we'll walk very
fast and we can go and return in twenty min

I am expecting a gentleman who it not used

can stay all,nighl if you like," tnid the young
lady, with an impatient shyness, for they
were standinii in it.e ball and the night air

swept gracefully into the parlor.

was somewhat in his countenance as he fame
out fioir, the shadow of the portico, and the
lamplight dropped on his face, which irresisti

and he answered the doubt which he had read
in her blue eyes.'
"I accidently overheard the conversation
with Miss Scott; and," he added with a smile,
"ns I came so near being the innocent ratise
of your going home alone, it is bvt fair I should
accompany you now."
The htlle dress maker hesitated no longer.

certainly catch your death siar.ding in the

Her long watch at the front door had proved

mote in this community, die from eating loo
much than eating too little; vastly more from

manv shiver from want uf defenses against the

the rich from absurd and1 criminal modes of
dress, which fashion has sanctioned, than
among the poor from deficiency or raiment.
by their rich aUire, tlrau our beggua by Ibeir
nakedness. So the poor are ofien overwork

rich, who have no work to do, no interesting
object to fill up life, to satisfy the infinite
cravings of man for action. According lo our
present modes of education; how many of our
daughters are victims of ennui a misery un

have the fond anticipations, of which nothing
can cure them but the rugged realities of an
embittered experience, or the vision of their

curious to pry into the secrets of her bliss into

wandering affections. Thus every house has

lesson in it for many who speak more grama

recently on board Ihe night train from New
York. Two married couple took their seats
in the cars at New York, bound for Boston,
in close proximnity, and ahout e.ght o'clock
they olh indulged in balmy slumbers, the
head of their wives resl ing 'upon their hus
band's shoulders. When the cars reached
Worcester, the gentlemen stepped out, and
the ladies apnarently exhausted, slept on.-
The delay was brief, and on entering the
cars, the husband's whose were scarcely open

resumed their natural po'ilions, and were in
the land of dreams. AtFramingham the ears
stopped again, when one of the ladier asked
