Lovs Foordid on Mammok. In a reoent lee
tare oa John Bull Lola remarked that in
domestic and social life sh found th English
very admirable and praiseworthy. The
love of money, however, is groat.:' Th
Scotchman would love his bonni lassie be-
eausersh was bonni. Th Irishman wonld
love his lass for her beauty and accomplish
ments. Bat John Bull would rather love her
if she had gold in her purse and lands for her
dower. Observation had shown her every
where, that money inspired affection. The
gentry and nobility of England for th most
part practiced the most reined and the most
wicked arts of gallantry, : To win the affections
of a young and artless girl and leave her to
misery was a matter of boasting at their clubs.
At some watering place th villain would
begin his campaign. Th poor girl would be
flattered by what my lord would say. She
has read in novel of condescension on the
part of th high bora to love snob, as herself,
and she expected to become a great lady. In
thi way she became an easy viotim. These
things war th fashionable amusements of
th wealthy in England. It faot it wu a
common pastim with them. Sh had seen in
New York papers advertisements for wives,
which she regarded as net only to catch som
foolish girl. To is the reign of the mighty
god Cupid in all his greatness and glory, they
should visit a winter watering-plaoe in Eng
land, whert liver-diseased people, as yellow
as their guineas, want to recruit their health.
Here daughters, eipeoially such at were some
what post, were bargained off to the old gent
who had returned from the Indie with gold
and disease. John Boll at home in England,
and Brother Jonathan at horn in New Bog
land, were the tame beings, modified by lcoal

, Wu. H. Fet of Niw Yobs. In a recent
lecture on New Tork, Mr. Fry said, according
to the Tribune'.
The ratio of life was decreasing in duration
In this city, beoause our government was in
the hands of ignoranoe and incompetence.
We allowed these men to oontrol the me
chanic and fine arts of this oountry. If New
York would be at the head of the world, she
mnst ihaDt th noliov of the mvernmentao aa
to foster her manufactures. Sh must evolve
her own ideas, as well at deal in the ideas of
otner people. We raised more gold than any
other country in th world, but our gold wtnt
to fiance in searon or her manutactures.
Poverty here was increasing with terrible ra
pidity. At the rate we were going on now,
very five persons wonld toon have to support
a pauper. Everything we tent abroad was
bulky, and everything France tent to nt wa
in a highly-concentrated form. We did not
exohange on equal terms. Th average duty
on manufactured goods Imported here was
19 per cent., while the average duty of
manufactured goods imported into Europe was
S00 per cent. This wat called free tradel An
enlightened and reformed political economy
would supply labor to th poor. At present,
thing were growing frightfully worse. , j
iBDiPiitosjir Isddstiv or Nsw Ehqlahb
Womsb. The people of New England, and
particularly those of Massachusetts, earn milj
lioni of dollar! annually in various branohet
of industry whioh have been Introduced in
modern timet. In one part of the Common
wealth, female labor la employed In binding
iheesj in another dittriot, braiding straw is th
leading pursuit; In a neighboring county, palm
leaf is converted into hate and bonnets by
women; and in the seaport villages clothing
it mad by the female resident for large
dealers In Boston.' Th effect of this Industry
upon a large scale, hat been th withdrawal of
nearly the whole native force from the factor
riet, and the substitution of foreigner in man.
ufaoturing villages, while in th matter of doj
mestio tervice, the native women have almon
wholly left the field; we apprehend . that If
the amount of the aggregate wealth of th
women of Massachusetts could be ascertained,
the sum would surprise every body. They
form a large class of the depositors in Saving!
Bankt, and there it hardly a corporation
within their borders that hat not female
among its share owners. Th independent
industry of the New England women adds
largely eaoh year to the aggregate wealth of
the community. j

Postal AaKAKQiusins with Bslqioh. A
postal contract has been executed between the
Postmaster General and th minister of Bel
gium, establishing a regular exchange of cor
respondence in dosed mails between the
United States and Belgium, to be oonveyed via

from South America say that during the past
six months the yellow pine of America whioh
has been hitherto unknown in Brazil haa been
extensively introduced there and hat become

A BrjHor Aaiosa TBI Cahiibals. A cor
respondent of the Australian, Mail, writing
from Auokisna, mtnciont mat vr. oeiwya,
Bishop, of New Zealand, has taken hi de
parture in hit little yacht, th Souther Cross,
on a tour through a number of th Mlane-
sian islands. "It is, I believe, His lordship's
intention to pay a vitit to tome new groups
for the purpose of conveying; to the natives
'the glad tidings of the Gospel,' and to en
deavor to induce torn or tnem to aoeept the
advantages of an education in the College of
St. John, so as to fit them to become in their
turn instructor of their fellow-men. He is
expected alto to call at Norfolk Island. To
record that th indefatigable exertions of the
Bishop, and of his excellent and ef ted coad
jutor and chaplain, Rev. J. C. Patterson, in
uui extensive seia oi labor, are exceedingly
enoouraging, it a pleasing duty, for not. only
oan that gentlemen now land on the shore of
islands, tne natives or whicn until recently
were hostile, but tuoh advances have they
made in the good opinion of th native and
their language that they are now able to
penetrate into their inland villages and hold
intercourse with them." ;.

The fact that the la diet of Turkey have of
late indulged themselves in wearing very thin
vailt and drosses, which allow their persons
to be teen too much, hat elioited an Imperial
edict, of which the following are the essential
feature : "Henceforth, all women, whoever
they may be, on leaving their houses, must
wear thick vailt whloh completely cover their
featuret, and be olad In araiiet of cloth or
other suitable material, without embroidery,
trimmings or external ornaments of any kind.
They mutt not show themselves out of doors
simply in stockings and slippers, but mutt
wear half-boots la yellow morocco leather, or
some other suitable and decent covering for
the feet. When they go out to make pur
chases, they are strictly prohibited frem ca
tering shops, but must stop on the outside bo
be served, and must not remain longer then is
absolutely necessary. When they are on the
public promenades, they must confine them
selves to th part reserved for females. Any
woman who shall be guilty of aott against the
law, will be severely punished." i

A Shaispseiiam Suit. The Shaktpeare
birth-place Committee hat brought a tuit to
test the validity of the will of Mr. John
Shaktpeare, by which he left 2,500 to be
devoted to establishing a museum at the house
where bis distinguished anoettor wat born.
He further charged hit estate, known as Lang
ley Priori, near Loughborough, with a rent
charge of 30 per annum, to be paid half
yearly to th person who should be appointed
to reside in the house as keeper, with direc
tions to keep a vellum bound book to present
with pen and ink to any visitor who may be
desirous of expressing any sentiment in prose
or verse in honor of the poet. , It was objected
to these bequests that they were void, as being
within the mischief of the Mortman aota, ana
further, that the words in the will to establish
a "museum, or for other purposes," were too
wide and general, and therefore that the bv
quest was void for uncertainty. It wa also
contended that the bequest of the rent-charge
created a perpetuity in contravention of the
aot relating to perpetuity. The judge reserved
hit decision. ,

took her to his house. According to her story,

years of age, neither she nor her parents had
ever lived under a roof, i, Her father not long
since killed her mother in a quarrel, upon
which she left him,' and had over since wan
dered about the woods and mountains, living
on wild fruits and vegetables pilfered from

Thb Odvbikbs or Pabis. An inquiry wi
lately opened to ascertain the number of work
ing people, male and female, in Paris, in order
to know what changes probably would take
plao in the population by the extension of
the oity. The number is found to be about
360,000. It has been hitherto generally bel
lieved that th majority were composed of
masons, carpenters, and others connected with
building operations, but that supposition is
now found to be an error. The branoh of busi
ness whioh occupies th greatest number of
handt it that of tailors and dealers in ready
made olothes; 100,000 workmen being engaged
in that branch of buslneet. !
