diseases. To perform bouse wor is too fre
uueutly considered degrading. Even where
the mother, Jn obedience to the traditions of
her youth, condescends .occasionally to labor,
the daughters are brought up in perfect idle
ness, take no bodily exercise except that of
walking in .fine .weather, or riding tn cushion
ad carriages, or dancing at a party. Those,
in abort, who can afford servants; cannot de
mean themselves, as Lhey think, bv.domestic
labcr. To make up a bed is regarded often
as exhausting beyond description; to sweep a
carpet is viewed as worse than field work in a
cane field; i'. liUe to scrub alas I modern
feminine language., copious as it is, has no
words to characterize this inhuman and cruel
ia.sk. . The result is, that all such lose what
little health they started life wilb, becoming
feeble in exact proportion as they become
In Hi is neglect of household cares American
females stand alone. A German lady no mat

not despite her lioutehi'ld, and even ihough
she has a housekeeper, davotta a portion ol
her lime to i his, her true, her happiest sphere,
ll is reserved for our republican fine ladies lo
he more choice than even their monarchical
and arisiocralic sisters. The result is a lasi
lude of mind oflenas fatal to I he health aa Ihe
neglect of bodily exercise. The wife who
leaves her household cares o tier servants pays
the penalty which hat been i (fixed lo idleness
since Ihe foundation of the world, and either

all sorts of fashionuble 'ollies lo.fiod employ

does not weaken her chest, and injure her

ball; in a .word, in one weyol another She
injures her lies lift most fatally. "' '
Aleii hiid occupation in business, in litera
ture, or in a profession; and an idle man it
proverbially consideied in peiil of soul and
b'ldy. How is it that women act so univer
sally os if they were exemplei from the evils
f Indolence f Waul of occupation rarely
leads tlitm into (jrr.at vices, and therefore Iht y
funcy it does not injure t lit in nt nil. But
alas I there are small vices into which tco
many fine ladies fall, such as backbiting, en
viousness, and gossippiiig gener illy, which, if
they ate not as gross as the fins, of idle men,
are bad enough. If household cares were
more generally n!tended lo, we should see but
little of these evils, and Women in good soci-
eiy would be much happier, and much more
duly luveable. 1 his is plain speakini!; bul
the truth must ouf. It is not the fashionable
gadabout, who lives on false excitement, Ih t
wins or retains the loeof a man of real worth.
A thousand limes deorer is she who, like Ihe
w ife of Wordsworth has immortalized, does
not consider domestic cares beneath her:
"I saw hor, on a nearer view,
A spirit, yet a woiein too;
;Her household motions liht and free;
Aud steps of Vir;iu liberty "
We fear, however, that it will lake more
than this or all the journals of the nation, to
remove this cancer ot social lite, nut the
press can, at lest, do something. While so
many of the evils under which the sex sulfei
and otlitr feminine assembles, here is one that
women has brought on herself, and to which
we call her attention.
The Baker's Parrot.
The subjoined incident is sent to us by a
correspondent, as relaled by a Virginia negro.
If it is true, Ihe patrot is ceriamly a remarka
ble bird: You see,' said he, Mis parrot belong
ed to a baker in Richmond. Now, each baker
is lowed to make a certain number of loaves
eberyday, and no more, 'cordid' to how many
customers he got; cause if dev bake too much

'Dere'a more bread under de counter!' So
de inspector grabs, 'corliit to law and carries
them off. Well, den de baker .goes lo de par

crawl about his feathers stick ill out, and his
head lopped on one skle, andden he stops and
looks a', tie pig, wery pitiful, and ses he, 'Did
you say any thing about de bread.'
Most young men consider it a great snisfor
tune to be poor, or not to have capital enough
to establish themselves at their out Set in life,
in business. So far from poverty being a mis
fortune to him, if we may judge from what we
every day behold, it is really a blessing; the
chance is more than ten to one in favor of the
success ofsuch a young man, over one with
plenty of money. Let one look back twenty
yeara ondsea who commenced business at thai
time with abundant means and ways; how
many can boast of wealth and standing? . On
the contrary, how many have become poor,
lost their place in society, and are passed by
their own boon companions with a Jpok

full of light and harvests, end full of angels ;
and which to the left leads down into the

dart upon theirprey, and full of dismal, close
exhaustions. ul the serpents bang around
his breast, and the poi-on-drops to bis tongue
and he knew not where he was.
Beside himself With an unspeakable grief
he cried out to Heaven: "Uh give me .youth

But his father and his youth bad passed long

'Thty are my foolish days 1'
tie saw a star shoot from heaven, shimmer
in its fall, and vanish on the ewth. 'That is
me,' said his bleeding heart, and the serpent
fang of remote dog deeper into his wounds.
His glowing itn.ijiinalion revealed lo him tot
tering sleep walkers on the roof; the wind
mill raised its arms, threatening lo crash him:
and a mask which had been left in the empty
charnel-house, by degrees assumed his own
Suddenly tn the. midst of his a'rtigsle, the

He looked up to Ihe horizon, and out over the

It is said that this celebrated man was not
quite fifteen when Crelchen, the sister of one
disreputable companions with whom he un
fortunately associated at that early peiiod
his life, first agitated his imaginations with
her charms. The story is told in a rambling
way in his "Autobiography," and is briefly
this: He had olten turned his poetical tal
ents to pmeticnl purposes namely, writing
wedding anil uiiierut verses, the product
which went in 'joyous feasliiiL's. He was thus
almost daily thrown with Gretchen; but she,
though kind, treated him as a child, and nev
er permitted the slightest familiarity. A mer
ry life they led in picnic and pleasure boats;
and the eornalion of the Kaiser Joseph 1 1, was
Ihe occasion of increased festivity. Some
Ihe joyous companions had been guilty of ne
farious practices; such ns forgeries of docu
ments. His friend and Gretchen were involv

A Spirited well as a Merited Rebuke.
Here is a funeral sermon which, as far as it
goes, is almost erjosl to the famous "harp of a
!rim " Pnrann R a rather
eccentric character, was called to preach the
f nersl sermon of a hard -case, named Rnnn,
wh ih be did in the following unique style:
"Mv r'oed bretheien and sisters, if our
beloved brother Ilrnn would want someLody
to come her and tell lies about him, aud make
biro out a better man than he was, he would
not have chase me to preach his funeral ser
mon. No, my brtlheren, be wsnted to bt

the error of his wave. The second wern n'
was when bis son Peterbung himself in jail ;

larged upon these topics until he sunk Rann
so low that hia hearers began to doubt whelh
er be would ever succeed in getting him un
again, and, as usual in funerals, lending him
safe in Abraham s bosom. This was the ob
ject of the second part of the sermon, which
started thus: "My bietheren, there'll be great
merocles gnat meraclea in heaven; and the
first meracle will be, that man you expect to
find there yon won't see there: The people
that go round with long faces, making long
prayers, won't be there. And Ihe second
mcraclo will be many that you don't expeel
to find there as, nerhsps, some wonft expect
to find ourdear departed brother'Rann you'll

General Walkers Early Love.
We find the subjoined episode in the early
life of the Nicarrngunn beio, in au exchange
"The history of General Wa ker, like that
of all other men of mark, is not free from the
romance of love as well as that of war Whilst
a law student in New Orleans, he conceived a
warm attachment fora very interesting young

been well educated, and was of very ennngin
manners. Her nisioritinea orew towards her
the sympathies and regard of all tender, heart

Walker became warmly enamoured or un
voting lady. She reciprocated Irs regard, and
for some time, lhey were never happy unless
together. He soon acquired a knowledge o.
hersiens, ar.d they conversed wi'n great tacn

adding zest lo their eninvment. At last some
slight misunderstanding interrupted tl.eir in
lercourse, and, belore a reconciliation could
be effected, the young lady died. This event
gave a tinge of melancholy to the thoughts
and cb arscter of Walker. Perhaps, as many
of hia friends thoueht. it produced the great
change in his character-winch a change from
the quiet, modest student, to the bold daring,

A Maiden's First Love.
Roman nature has no essence more pu'e

of the sunny south is too cold lo shadow furl

gunge poor in that some respect, because the
