Ions Dnellns Betting on Election.
In Iho Eye, a periodical publica
tion, edited by " Obadiali Optic,"
issued in Philadelphia in 1808, let-
ters written, j-" Robert -Rustic,"
fronrPhiludelphia to a friend Jer
emiah Listless,") in the "West, ap
pear. The following extracts -will
be read with interest .
Alter passing over mountains,
through towna and dangerous wil
dernesses ailc'disastrous chances
many accidents and hair-breadth es
capes" I have arrived .at the far-
famed and thrice-reno'wned city of
Philadelphia.-;- I-xanbyjio means,
refrain fronif giving you-an account
of the civilrze'dana enlightcnedpeo
pie with -whom I now live.
Now, from the articles oi uress or
the ladies here, we may ueuuee
whole .Dazes of argument for and
against -them. So various is their
dress, thatone part contradicts an
other, "which, being the case, -we
might take it collectively and decide
they ,liavo an tnconsisieni utsie.
Buft-thSnk it most proper. to-give
a fair description of their dress, that
thereby you mayjudge Tor yourscn,
and believe me, my dear friend, this
is no easy task. I consider it is as
difficult as the most complicated
nieceiof architecture. In architec-,
ture, we have the Corinthian, Doric,
and Gothic, and other orders to de
scribe, but in the dress here I see
no order at all, and, in fact, the or
der which nature was pleased to givo
the ladies is distorted, squeezed and
pressed out of all order. You may
however, form a tolerable idea of
the nondescript, heterogenous ar
chitecture of dress of these ladies
comparing to your near neighbors,
the Indians; like them they appear
to have a partialit for red, inso
much that some not only wear red
slippers and dresses, but daub their
faces after the manner of those sav-
acres ; their ears, like those of the,-
Indians, arc bung with a profusion
of curiously-formed rings, and their
necks with beads. Like the Indians, ,
they load their heads with a vast va
nety of fantastical, unueiinable or
naments; and lastly, like them, they
are indifferent with respect to con
cealing certain parts, as their arms,
bosoms, etc. I cannot say if, from
the similarity of dress, wc ma)' de
duce that the natures of the Indians
and the Philadelphia ladies resemble
each other, but I have discovered a
very bloody-minded, savage dispo
sition among some of the gentle
men here. Would you. believe, my
friend, even in this civilized part of
the world, thej' fight one another, in
cold blood, with pistols ! They call
shooting a fellow-man down at their
feet, taking honorable satisfaction
the)' call robbing a child of its father,
and a wife of her husband, acting in
behalf of their honor! Oh, worse
than Indian !
But the Indian ladies differ from
the ladies of Philadelphia, in that
the former are remarkably mute and
exceedingly modest, and you never
hear more than one of them speak at
a time, but the latter (and I am told
it is the same in every polite part of
the world) are indefatigably loqua
cious. I have often heard a dozen
at the same time indulgiug them
selves in most vehement verbose elo
cution, to the "Teat annovance of
mv rnr TIiiq tlinv mil rpfl.TmrtV
v J j
chit-chat. If they are admitted toi
debate on the more important affairs
of State what an uproar would there '
.be in Congress Hall: one might as
well, in my opinion, be in Vulcan's,
tuundeiuolt manufactory as among
them. They also differ in other re
spects from your neighbors. The
male sex among the Indians main
tain their dignity by holding in ab
solute subjection the females, but
here in man)' instances the females
decidedly "rule the roost"
When we take a superficial or out
ward view of their heads, we see
what they call bonnets, of indefiua
ble and variable figures, many of
which are three feet or more in cir
cumference, hung with ribbons, etc.
A correct description of the shape
of some of them is absolutely impos
sible, but if vou form to yourself an
idea of the ficure all the figures of
Euclid jumbled together would
make, then yoh have as good an idea
of them as myself. This massive
bonnet gives great weight, dignity,
and magnitude to the head; and
when I See a lady tripping along the
street with one on, it puts me in
mind of a new hatched partridge
running about the field with an egg
shell sticking to its head larger than
its body. Their combs, I judge
from the measure of one I took with
mv thumb as I staggered under it
from a tca-mrtw must be from six
to ten inches wide, and proportion
ati-ly long. Their ears are stretched
to a dangerous length bv ear-rings
of an enormous size, the hair friz
zled and curled in every shape.
Their bodies they squeeze out of all
shape except the fashionable shape,
by elastic corsets and bandages.
In another letter from Phil ad el
phiathe same writer says :
In a part of the world so refined,
and so famous for religion and pie
ty as Philadelphia, I supposed that
evciy species of gambling would be
effectually suppressed, but no such
thing; there arc one hundred bil
liard tables within the knowledge of
Hilly Flash, atuLWoubt there are
thrt'e times as iffany. It appears to
nie, when I reflect on the horrible
practices stled amusements here,
the more depraved they become.
The lotteries here are a source of
great speculation, disappointment
and ruin ; surely they are, of all otli
crc the most seductive temptation
in the world. You can scarcely
walk a street in the city but -"$30,-
" 000 for five cents," stare vou be-
witchinglv in the face.
Gambling on elections is carried
on to a most extravagant degree.
and 1 once heard Billy Flash say
that he regretted that the election
of President, Vice President, Gov
ernor, and all public ollices did not
take place half yearly, that it might
become a fashionable season of

When .a blackbird once1 -learns
tuncvhoncvcr forgets any part of it
I onco knew a bird thatcoald whistle
: "Polly Hopkins" with wouderfu
accuracy. His owner? sold him, at'
uie same time making-nis purchaser
acquainted with the 'bird's favorite
iuuu.. iib soon as ucgomim nome,
neat, once bung up the blackbird
and on going to the. piano, struck up
'Polly Hopkins." The bird's master
however, introduced parts into the
so,, after listening .awhile he began
hissintrv flutterinc his . wines, and
dth'crwise signifying his distaste of
the whole performance. Much sur
prised, the gentleman left off ping
ing, and then the blackbird opened
bjsf throat and favored his new master
with hia.version o.f "Polly Hopkins,"
nor would he over listen witn any
patience to any other version.
f This same blackbird, alter&tayiiie
in theservice of the above-mentioned
gentleman for two years, wastadop
ted -by 'a serious family, where
Polly Hopkins, ' and all such pro
fanity, were sedulously avoided
Whenever poor4'Joo' (the black
bird's name) attempted to strike up
the old tune, a cloth was thrown
over the cage and he was silenced.
The family consistedsof an old lady
and two daughters, and every -nisrht
at seven o clock prayers were read
and the cveninc hymn sung;' and
Joe, who was an obedient bird, and
anxious to'confprm with the Jiabits
of the house, speedily learned the
tune, and regularly whistled it while
the old woman and her daughters
sang it llns went on lor six or
seven years, when the mother died
and the daughters separated, and
Joe; now an aged blackbird, fell into
new hands ; but to his dying day he
never gave up the "Evening Hymn."
Punctual as the clock struck seven,
he tuned up and went straight
through jivith it with the gravity of
a parish clerk. Jieelons llome

whole families have been cured by single bot
