Is it not hard to iimt inee yourself that the
vonnir ladies tiio! irenth-meii who compose it i
are really in their senses?" !
'And so you think it sii ful to danre?" JJr.
Green said, after tiausiiw a moment or two to
relief! whether or no ;l would not tie waslino;
words to endeavor to cm inee the vouno; lady,
that il'ineiiijr is ti"t onlv innH--rt in itself hut
really nsefid those I o pai tici ale in it with
rational mialerati'in. Mis conclusion was not
to waste bis arL'umenls.
'Certainly I do, was the emphatic answer.
'Thi n, if you think il sinful, you otiulil li"t
to participate in il, hy any means,' he said
'ISut as I do not, and as my heels ami Iocs
have felt exx-eedinyly restless ever since the
music commenced, I must seek out one less
ciiu-cii nlious ihan yourself And so say in l'.
Mr. (teen arose, iuidsli;lnl v howiiiLT, turned
away in search i f a partner. In ' his next of
fer be was more siieei ssful.
"O y s. 1 know s.'e wouldn't refuse!' Miss
Andeison remaiked sarcastically, ton yoiin
lady by her side, n she saw Mr. Green with
his partner complete n new n-t. 'Sarah El
lery would darcc all nijjil if she.i-ouM gel a
partner. She's a forward hold kind of a ifl
anyhow! I never could hear her. She would
lauh and dittce at. a ftmcinl, I believe. I
should be soiiv iuilei d, if I bad all her idle
words to answer for. A seiious ihoiio'it, I
don't suppose, ever a-s s lln.ili-Il her h":id
And just see how f. uilishly shc.'lrosscs. What
use, i should like to know, is there in that
bunch of lloweis in her hair? Or in those ro
sels. And her s!ccv-st.i did ou evel see
such uiibec lining things? I'm they're the
last fashii in and that's all she cares about. And
there's Emeliiie Crawford ill the s ime cotillion
She'd a ureal di al belter be at home unend
ing on her sick siii r. Just faik tit Mary
Walkei's w aist ! Isn't she laced to death ! It
really makes me aiioay to see giil-4 act so
She thiiiks Henry Jacobs admires a smil!
waist, and so screws hers II up to please his
eye. Il'sloohad! Well, thank niaidness! I
never was such a simpleton. And there's
Caroline Mttrry with her sister's dress on!
Or, I suppose, they have hut one good dress
between lliein, and go out alternately. Il i.
ccrtaiu you m-vcr see lliem loether.
Perhaps there is a reason why they fitnnol
both leave home together, suggested the la
dy by her side.
"No dotiht of il,' said Miss Anderson. 'That
one ilress is the reason, ilepciul upon it! ton
wotildii' catch me out in any body else's dress'
I know! I'd be above going into c.o!iipan
unless 1 could appear in my own clothes.'
'Are you particularly acquainted with Car
oline Murry and her sister?' asked the lady.
'No nor do I wish to be. I never keep
company wilhgiilsuf their frivolous charac
ter.' Why do you call them frivolous, Miss An
'Look and judge for yourself. There is
Caroline now before you. Watch her face for
ten minutes at a time, and see if it has one- a
serious expression. Listen to her conversa
tion, ami note if she tillers a serious word.
All is froth and chaff.'
'You do no' know Misi Murry, T Iind.' was
the lady's quiet reply lo this. 'If you did, you
would estimate Iter differently."
This rebuke ofetided Miss Anderson, and
sho replied a lilUo warmly
'1 am not in the habit of rirmuijf a wronu;
estimate of people. A tree is readily known
by its fruits.'
'Justly said," returned ihe lady by her side,
and I lien, as neither of them fit much inclin
ed to continue in conversation with the oilier,
a prolonged silence followed.
Afler Mr. Green had danced long enough
to satisfy his excilahle heels and toes, and had
thought over, ill the mean lime, Miss Ander
son's objections to ihe innocent amusement in
which a I iry;e proportion of ihe youiijrer mem
bers of the company were eno-aoreil, hu felt
'minus lo have a Mule more talk with her, and
so look a vacant seat by her side.
'Can't I prevail upon you to be my partner
in the next si t ";' he said jocosely.
No, sir.you cannot !' was the prompt reply,
while not a feature relaxed from ils dignified,
half offended expression.
'1 wish I could induce you to fret upon the
fliar. I am sure yott would feel better,' urg
ed Mil Green jood humoredly.
'If vott are so anxious to dance, Mr. Green,
you can eet plenty of pat tners. There is Car
oline Muirv.' She's alwats in the market for
a cotillion.' This was said with a vcty per
Now Nr. Green was in the habit of saying
plain ;hiiiv;s, in a plain way to nlmhst every
ne. Me tnetit no offence: but it was a failing
with hint so many of hisfiieiids thought
to speak out upon nearly all subjects the exact
triilli ns it appeared lo him. il was this pe
culiarly of his character which caused him lo
reply, notwithstanding Miss Anderson wiison
ly a mere acquaintance, after this fashion.
'Well now, Mi Anderson, to speak out the
plain truth as it strikes me, I don't think dan
ciiior at all to he compared, as an evil, with the
spirit t'ait prompts us to speak unkindly and
cei sorioiisly of each other. Caroline Marry
tnioht dance witheveiy yoltiijr man in the
riaim. and y t he perfectly innocent but you
'aunot iiiduioe in the temper that caused you
to allude to her as you tlid just now, without
Honestly and justly s o!ii It. Mr. Green!'
aid I Ih- I tdv lo whom Miss Andeison had so
i'i Iv indulged in Ie r ill-nalureil remarks. l
find we are ofi-tting two parties in our evening
social assemblies. A dauciiio party, and a par
ty t'ai conscientious to indulge hi any amuse
ments. The huter having nolhiiio; to do but
to sit and lak on. and finding their stibjectsof
conversation r.- lher hitiiti tl, siain f-ill to wotk
and criticise., and Iind fault wi'h those around
'hem who tin uol look upon the world with
tl eireyes. And w hat is even worse, too of
ten indulge in an ill nalurcd and wicked judge
ment of their motives.'
You do not refer to me, I hope,' Miss An
derson said, looking the lady somewhat stern
ly in the face.
You know, my young friend, whether or no

ly age of sixteen. They were twin sisters, and
tenderly attached to each oilier. An aged
nut had always lived in i heir father's holts

.ours.-, throuti destitute upon the world. But
t he affectionate girls would not permit her lo
be separated from them. J hey took a small,

ing it as comfortably as was required, had tin
residue of their father's fin nil in e, which had
been left with them, sold and the amount oh

ular income. This it did but slightly. Hen
they still live, with llieir aged aunt, minister
ing lo all her wants, and denying ihemselves
in various ways in order to keep a home fa

ever (hey can hv sewing. Hut tt requires

ioliucuou ! Is there a happier or sweeter face
here to-night ? Her temper is as sweet as her

and never speaks of another except to allude
lo some good quality.
'During the early part of the winter, an ef
fort was made among the members of the
church to which both the Miss Murrys and
Miss Anderson belong, to raise a certain sum
to buy fuel, food, and clothing for ihe poor of
the congregation. Miss Anderson is an or
phan us well as others, but with this differ
ence she has an income of two thousand dol
lars a year, and they as 1 have said, but two
hundred each. Well, it fell to my lot to call,
with another lady, upon Miss Anderson.
W hen we staled our errand, she drew her
self up coolly, and said, she made it a point
not to give to poor people. 1 here poverty
was usually, their own fault, and to supply
their wants was only to encourage them in
idleness and improvidence. We did not urge
the matter upon her, for wc wished all who
gave, to do so in cheerfulness and freedom.
Our next call wason the twin sisters. I can
not soon forget that interview. Until myself,
and the friend who accompanied me were on
terms ot close intimacy with them, and they
therefore concealed nothing from us. I need
not go into a minute account of the interview.
lis result was briefly this. The sum was a
large one for them, but it was given in the
spirit of pure self sacralicc for the good of oth
ers. Ther aunt is quite old, and they never
on that account leave her alone. One of them
always remains with her. Of course both
could not go into company at the same time.
Caroline was dressed to go out shopping w hen
we called upon them, and was going to pur
chase two handsome dresses, the paterns of
which the' had chosen, with some other
things, preparatory to the coming social sea:
son. Alter we had stated our errand, t-.aro-
liue thought a moment, and then proposed to
buy only one dress, as they never could go
out together, to be worn by the one whose
turn il was to go into company. 'I he sister
instantly acquiesced, with a cheerful pleasure
ill it really caused the tears to dim mv eves.
We remonstrated but I hey seemed to feel il
lo be an obligation, which as christians they
owed to ihe poor ihntiked lis for reminding
them of their duly, and handed us twenty d"l-
lais! Now, as a sequel to tins, I cannot help
alluding to the fact, that the young lady who
was laj coiiscientiuus to give to the poor, and
t'Hj conscientious to dance, tlid not hesitate to
sneer at these sisters, because she had made
the discovery that they ow ned but one parly
dress, alleging it as her belief, that the reason
why only one of them was seen in company at
a time, was because they had but one decent
dress between them!"
Mr. Green satsiteiit and thoughtful for some
lime idler his companion had ceased speaking.
1 hen he made his own comments upon the in
cidents related. These need not be mention
ed here. He soon alter moved to the side of
Caroline Murry, and kept his place most of
the evening. He found iter intelligent, and
kind in her allusions lo every one even to
Miss Anderson, pilying rather than censuring
her for her false views in regard to dancing,
and making the excuse for her of a defective
After that Mr. Green was a regular visitor
at the house of the sisters. Miss Anderson
sneers at this but no doubt will attend Car

Marriage Short Meter.
An unrebuked correspondent of a particu
larly conserx alive (Cotton) journal of our
City thus sums up in behalf of a woman who
left her husband and is now with a voluntary
partner more consonant to her taste:
"The world will some day do justice to this
true-heaiied woman. I know that she has
been maligned, but I have sought in vain for
one single charge against her, except that she
has left her husband. Now, whatever
husbands, may think, this is not of necessity
a crime. Nay, nine cases in ten hctieee
il tn be a rirtve. The real crime is for a woman
to live with a rmtn she dees not love. If ten
thousand woman in New-York should leave
their husbands lo morrow, 1 believe it would
be better for them, and better, in the long
run, for society. 1 believe that "w homGid
has joined together, let no man put as
under," but I also believe that such a God
has not joined, ought lo get asunder as fast as
"Let me explain. No woman can leave
her husband. Every woman ovylt to leave
a man who only prelendj to be her husband.
A woman could no more leave a man who
was really her husband, than one half of her
body could walk away and leave the other.
Where the union is real.lhere can be no separa
tion n here there is a seperation, it is pnaif
ahsoluse that no union existetl. It is in this
way that marriage is indissoluble. If it is a
real mariiage, there can be no separation: if
it is a sham, the seperation already exists, and
the sooner the pretense is ended the better.
The rights of the parlies in such c iscs ought
to be settled by a rigid equity; but there can
be no equity in compelling a woman to live
w ith a man to whom she is not truly, heart,
soul and bod- united. The proof, then, that
Mndami tlid right in leaving , is that
she did leave him, and is here."

Distribution of Offices.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Commercial Advertiser, has compiled
from the records, a statement showing the
nurc.ber of offices under the Federal Govern
ment, which the Slave and Free States are
respectively entitled to giving the ratios ac
cording lo population.
The fourteen Slave States, nnd the District
of Columbia, are entitled to 2.824 official pla
ces or appointments in the Military, Naval and
Civil Dep irtmcnls of the Government- The
total number, in office, is only 2,548.
The fifteen Free Slates not including Cali
fornia, are entitled lo 3,81!) official plaits or
appointments, and the total number, in office,
from these Stales, is 4, 4653.
In the statement, the slave population is in
cluded, and by deducting it, the number of
offices would be about equalized between
the Free aud Slave States.
The account fairly stated would stand thus:
Entitled to 3,819
In service 4,653
More Ihan entitled to 834
Entitled to ' 2.S24
In seivice 2,584
Less then entitled to 276
Deduct for slaves 940
Gives to Slave States more than entitled to 6C0
Excess for Free States 1 74
This statement runs counter to the almost
universal impression, that the Southern States
enjoy the lion's share of the emoluments and
honors of official station.
IJy this exhit, made from the record.it ap
pears that taking the whole population into
account, the Northern States have 834 more
office-holders under the Federal Government,
than they are enlled to, and the Southern
States 270 less and that after deducting the
slave population, the Northern states have 174
more than their share.
The follow ing table w ill be interesting, as it
show s the number of offices each State is enti
tled to. and ihe number in service.

A Crash! Fall of part of tub Horse
Shoe Fall. On Tuesday evening last, our
citizens were startled on hearing a loud and
terrific noise, resembling as near as we can
describe it, the heavy booming of urtcllcry, in
quick succession, which shiaik the earth a
round us very sensibly. We did not know
for a time what could be the cause of such j
fearful noise; and for a few minutes, were
thrown into amazement, supposing that Mil
ler's Millineum was at hand.
It proved to be a part of the Horse Shoe
F: II on the Canada side, which had fallen, car
ryite'iiway about leu rods of the na;k in length
by four in width. The Canal boat, which had
been lodged for the last few months on the
brink of the rock w hich has fallen, and which
has excited the admiration of all who beheld
it, was also carried oyer with the rock. Il is
now in the Whirlpool, two miles down the riv
er, dancing attendance to the freaks of that
ereat malstrom. Tho crash occurred about 7
o'clock in the evening; and it is indeed Provi
dential that il fell at such an hour, and at this
season of tlie year. Had il been iu the sum
mer, when so many thousands of strangers
are here, there undoubtedly would have been
persons crushed lo death; for il is precisely
the spot w here so many continually passed,
and where so many h ive slo d lo contemplate
the grandeur of nature, and behold Ihe waters
of the mighty Cataract above them rushing
leriilicly "over. their heads, that is now filled
with the huge masses of rock which have fal
len from above.
The loss of tliis portion of the rock has not
in the least diminished in appearance the view
of th Falls; hut h is in our opinion, added lo
the scene, an I looks grander and more sub
lime, if possible, ti::m ever.

cosily undei taking ever attempted by a single .
individual of a literary character, which the,
world has yet seen, is the magnificent work
on the aborigines of Mexico, by the late Lord
Kiiigsborough. This stupendous w oik is said
to have been produced al the enormous cost
to the author of 30,000, or 8150,000. Ilis
comprised in seven immense folio volumes,
embellished by about one thousand sitperb il
lustrations, colored so exquisitely as to repre

ry dimensions, as to he almost importable.
