UNION AND AMERICAN.
rivi: O'clock is the nonsuiu,
a reran, song, suxg rv hub. rAHErA r.osx.
Tho dew lay glittering on the trass.
A mist lay on the brook;
At the earliest beam of tho golden t un,
Tbo swallow hen her nest forsook ;
Tho snowy bloom of tho hawthorn tree
Lay thickly tho ground adorning.
The birds wcro singing on every bush,
At five o'clock in tho morning.
And Bessie tho milkmaid, merrily sane.
For the meadows wcro fresh and fair ;
Tho breeze of tho morninr kissel her brow.
And played withlher nut-browrfhair ;
But ot she turned and looked around.
As if the cilcnco scorning ;
'Twas timo for tho mower to wet his tcj tho
At five o'clock in tho morning.
And orcr the meadows tho mowers came.
And merry their voices rang
And one among tbcm wended his way
To whero the milkmaid sang;
And as ho lingered by hcrfide.
Despite his comrade's warning,
Tho old. old story m told again.
At five o'clock in tho moraine.
The Absurdity or It.
It ii all very well for poets to tell,
By way of their songs adorning.
Of milkmaids who rouse, to manipulate cows,
At firnnVlock in tbe moraine.
And of many young mowers, who bundle out
Tho charms 01 their straw beds scorning
Before break of day. to make love and bay.
At five o'clock in the morning.
But. between mo and you. it is all untrue
Believe not a word they utter;
To no milkmaid alive, docs tho figuro of five
Bring beaux or even butter.
The poor sleepy cows, if told to arouse,
Woulil Hn &n nrmtis in n nnrn inp.
But tho sweet country girls, would they show
ineir bright curls
At five o'clock in the moraine?

Blue-blaifc velvet is more fashionable

A youncster in Peoria, Illinois, recently.
in exnlorinc his sister's Ihincs. came across
a package of letters duly lied up and laid
away, being a correspondence which she
was carrvine: on with a nice young nv.n
He carried them down on the street, and,
standing on the corner, cave them away
singly to the passers by. The young lady
didn't find it out until a mutual friend,
also a nice young man, brought her one
thit her brother had thm given him
It may be suggested to the people who
are just now fashioning laws to forbid mar
riages-considered improper, mat in iu
the Kinc of Portugal issued an edict for
bidding widows more than -fifty years of
age to marry. "Jiixperience, saya me
King, "has shown that women of that age
commonly marry young men of no pro
perty, who dissipate the fortunes such
marriages put them in possession of, to the
prejudice of the children and other near
relatives of their wives."
Madame Helling, of the Frankfort Mat
rimonial Bureau, advertises that she Iies
plenty of American husbands for well ed
ucated German girls. Fee five dollars.
These matrimonial bureaus are patronized
extensively in Germany. In I erlin theto
arehilf a dozen institutions of this c!as
which do ft nourishing business. As tbe
police keep them under very sharp sur
veillance, few or no complaints are pre
ferred against them. They publish in tbe
German papers many Ietleis written by par
ties that liave found husbands or wives
through their agency.
distingue wedding took place in the
Church of the Unity, Baston, the other
day, in the presence of a tremendous
crowd. One clTect that was very charming
was the arrangement of flowers, the pulpit
being entirely hidden by a minature fortst
of tropical plants, with biuquets of dn
hcious tlowers that perfumed the air. An
other wedding at a different church (on
he same dav) also attracted the town. It
had its nbvel features. Preceding the fir-l
bridesmaid and groomsman walked eight
little girls from ten to six years of age, ex-
quifiiely uresjea m ramJiu ana N .iiencten
nes blue and pink saiheJ, and cmying
tath a bo iu;t cf choice floxers.
A fashion writer recommends the fol
lowing patterns fjr bonnets and hats for
winter wear: Bonnets of gray velvet,
almost entirely covered with loops of pir-k
ribbon. On the left side two rosis are
placed ab ive lheeir. Pink strings, edgtd
with piok Ijce, and attached to a plaiied
pitce of gray velvet, which extend down
ward and forms the beginning of the string.
Round hat of deep orange velvet, encircled
with lesves of the same, a trailing spray of
ftiiich foil over a little black lace veil.
Aigrette at the side. The crown of i ' hat
is ornamented w'nh two u:i folds I -i.in.
There is now in Paris a movement on
fuol lor tiie purpo'e of breaking down the
constantly increasing influences of the
women of the demi-mondc. A society of
ladies, to be called "Tho league of honest
women," is lo bo organized. The menu
hers of ibis league pledga themselves not
to patronize any establishment where the
demi-monde is known to deal ; not to rent
baifs at theaters to which the demi-momle
is admitted : not lo ape the costumes intro
duced b the demi monde; not to invite lo
their eoirs any gentlemen win are known
to keep uii-tresic, etc. Old Dnpin ?ng-
gestctl something of the kind lour years
ago. Very influential authors, artists,
politician", etc, now f.ivar the formation
cf such a league.
For house dress a fashionable corres
pondent advises the adoption of one of the
undermentioned makes: Dress with a
douhlr rkirt of light gray poplin, trimmed
with piping of dark gray satin, sitin but
tons, and gray silk fringe. Dreis of dark"
blue serge, caught up behind in a pannier
puff, with a black silk sash and bow. Short
ilrcs and gray foulard ; the under-skirt is
trimmed round the bottom with a narrow
flounce of the same material surmounted
by a bias fold of satin; the upper skirt is
formed into two ptitTs behind, and is
trimmed with a flounce and bias satin
folds; high corsage, closed with satin but
tons. Dkfs of black silk; under-skirt,
under waist and sleeves of striped satin;
the trimming of the dress consists of black
satin piping and silk Iringe.
Mrs. Stowe says of dressing for church:
Very estimable, and, we trnst, very re
ligious young women, sometimes enter tne
house of God in a costume which makes
the acts of devotion in the service seem
almost a burlefque. When a brisk little
creature conies itito a pew wi'.h her hair
frizz;d till it stands on ends in a most
startling manner, rattling strings of bead
and bits of tinsel, she may look exceeding
Iy pretiy and piquant ; and if she came
there for a came of croquet or a tableau-
party, would be all in very good taste; but
as she comes to confess that she is a miser
able sinner, that she has done the thin; 8
she ought not to have done, aud left un
done the things she ought lo have done
as she takes upon her lips most solemn and
tremendous worc's, whose meaning runs tar
beyond life in:o a sublime eternity there
is a di-.erepiucy which would be ludicrous
if it Wire not melancholy.

The Home Jrc( of vwitxng
.r,l.- Viaitin.' cards will be, for this
teaton, rather larger than formerly, and of
im fint nnolT?il Bristol board. The
new sizes will tend rather to the square
than otherwise. The shape of the card
may be varied according to taste, the
proper adaptation to the size of "the letter
ing being maintained. Among the various
texts in use, nothing will supersede the
English script and those inimitable styles
of Old English text the most novel being
those with dropped capitals, and the ex
tremely neat, extra shaded. Visiting cards,
with the familiar words denoting the ob
ject of the call, will remain in use, to Bope
extent, especially for calls of congratulation
or condolence. The word ri'sife, on the left
hand upper corner, will be engraved on
the reverse side. The corner containing
the desired word will be turned down, so
as lo denote the object of the call. The
word on the right hand corner, Felicitation,
will l.o nc.nl fnr visits nf cnntrratnlalion on

marked Condolence. Cards sent to Vienda
before leaving for a long journey, arc
issued with the addition of P. P. C. in left
hand corner. These cards are enclosed in
heavy and olegant, though plain, enve
Jones, ornamented with a tasteful mono
gram or initial. In wedding invitations,
all abbreviations like eve. for evening,
will be avoided, as well aa r. 3t. ; the word
afternoon being preferable. Invitations to
ceremonious weddings consist of a rquare
cote sheet, embellished with a large mono
gram in relief, entwining1 the combined
initials of the bride and groom. The in
dividual cards of both bride and groom
must be also enclosed, united with a neat
white satin tie : and, in some cases, another
card, with reception days for the following
month. A very neat style of card has the
customary "at home" on a note sheet, a
ceremony card, (at Gxed hour,) and the
united cards of bride and croom, all en
closed in splendid large envelope, of the
very finest texture, with an elaborate mono
gram or ornamental initial.

Tilt N ash villi; Vnio.v and Dispatch and the
Nashville Qazf.ttg by consolidating tho two
papcri, propose to make the Union' and Amesi
CAVthsbcst anil cheapest journal ever published
in Tennesseo, and we ask the united support and
favor of the patrons of both the former papers,
in tho new cnterprijo, pledging oursclvos that
in every particular our paper will coraparo fa
vorably with the best in tho ontiro country ; and
in sayincthi, wo only repeat tho expressions of
tnivy of our patrons, who arc most capable of
'udging in such matters.
In the Political Interests of
Tke Union and Aukkican will take tho Con
stitution and laws for its guide, adhering to tho
teachings of tho founders of our government. It
will guard with vigilance and Crmncu tho
rightsof all tho people, urging upon all, modera
tion, forbearance and a steady adhcrenco to
and order, thereby cnabliog tho pcoplo to
dovclop tho resources and advance all the mate
rial and other interests of our State and com
mon country, i'eclin; that thco aro endan
gered by the revolutionary schemes of tho Radi
cal politicians, who now hold tho legislativo.
power of tbe government, we shall abate noth
ing of our past opposition to their measures.
Schools and Education,
AVo will take especial pains to ascertain tho
true situation of all Tour school and cJuca
tional interests, so as to keep our readers fully
posted in rcga d to thofio important matters.
Too much consideration cannot be given to the
educational interests of our State
Our Manufacturing and Do
Wo ahall constantly admonish tho Souther
pp.iplo to bo self-reliant, and shall do what wo
nay bo able to induco tho establishment o
manufactories in our midst for our home pro
ducts. To this end wo will pay special attention
to tho cost and statistics of manufacturing;,
and oxert ourselves to encourage tho diversifi
cation of Southorn industries ami tho develop
ment of Southern resnnrce?.
Our Financial and Commer
Every department of business has an imme-
diato interest in the markets of tho country, and
in its financial fluctuations and condition. Tho
maa who falls to keep himself properly ad
vised as to the riso and fall of the markets, as
controlled by tho laws of demand and surply
and tho relativo conditicn oi tho currency, is
oipcsod to constant loss, and must necessarily
fall behind his moro intelligent and enterprising
neighbors. In order to make our paper valuable
as well as interesting, wo shall make this a
special p-eatcre. Our Daily Market Reports,
domestic and foreign, by telegraph, and our
City Reports, gotten up at heavy expense, shall
challengo the commendation of oar best busi
nessmen: while our current X'inaccial Reports
from all tbe leading money centers of tho coun
try shall bo fuller than have ever been pub
lished by any other journal in Teniriisco.
Upon the Subject of Agn-
And kindred topics, wo shall also give An cx-
Unsivo variety of valuable and interesting nint-
tcr-tho best adapted to tho farming classes of
our State, which will, in a great measure, sup
ply teo place of a family agricultural paper.
In Every Thing.
