out,' Instead ot being set: aside for
that combination of procured aber

the. . Thiladelphia ' Convention of

it is, I fear that the last hope of the
reaction perished then; and ; that
the "Great American Revolution

beyond its present , demands that

Mr. Zipp was brought before tho

Unaccustomed as I am to - public

Now that,1 inimy opinion, is de

any such confounded nonsense!
No, indeed 1 ,. B.ut I do , wish that

principles of propriety will allow.
However, i suppose tney can't, so
that's a useless wish, r.The only
thing to be done is for thi husband
to be thoughtful and attentive on
an all occatians. ' Uow'many wives
become' heartlesst in behavior
through neglect on, the .part of the
half. It is too true that with some
husbands' possession' 'spoils the
charm, and the fair recipient of the
lover's attention'is often aneglect

ing of a good wife depends quite as
muchi with the 1 husband as the
training oi a husband does, with a
wife. In the Hirst place, jt is the
duty of the to confer with the
wife on all matters of importance
pertaining to business and other

Eleasent delusion that a, woman
nows nothing of business. Gran
ted. But like the anxious servant
girl who applied for the , situation
of wet nurse can't she learn ? Of
course she can. Sit down with your
wife and talk to her. Let her see
that you really look upon her as
your companion. Remain homo as
much as possible in the evenings.
Talk to your wife sensibly, and
truhfully at all times.. ' If matters
go wrong at your place of business
don't Vent your wrath upon the in

If she is, inclined to be ugly and
snappish, try' not to mind it": re

Watch your opportunity, and talk
her gently and kindly: show
her in what way she can please
you most, anail she loves vou.
shell do as you require!
ue attentive to your wife in the
most trifling thing, for trifles go to
make the most important matters
our lives. A good wife depends
solely on her husband for attention
and if you are wanting in that, the
result is . genarally . one of two
things : she seeks attention else
where, or home is rendered intoler
able by domestic broils. Dear me,
you men would take, the same
pains to, ' please your wives which
you did to please your sweethearts.
the tasK,vl rendering 'home' happy,
would be as easy ' as rolling down
stairs. There is one thing I must
speak of, and that, is: some hus
bands 'rile' their better fs by pay

marriage allows to' others of the

An Ominous Prediction.
Tlie late Lord Macaolay.in May,
1857, wrote a letter to II. L. Ran
dall; of New York, in' which he ex
presses his earnest convictions in
relation to the future of tho United
States. He said: " . i-.s:-.:
It is quite plain that your Gov
ernment wjll never be able to res
train a distressed and discontented
majority. For with you the major
ity is the Government, and lias- the
rich, who are always a minority,
absolutely at its' mercy. ; :!
1. seriously, apprehend! that.-yom
will, in some such season as I have"
described, do things which will,
prevent prosperity lrom returning;'
that you will act like a people who.1
should, in a ycar .of scarcity, de-
vpur all the. seed . corn, and thus.'
m.ake the next year a year not of
scarcity, Jaut of absolute famines
( There will bo', I fear, spoliation.''
The spoliation .will increase the '
distress.. The distress will prodaco '
lresh spoliation. There is nothing
to stop you. Yonr Constitution is '
all sail and no anchor.'1 As I 'said'-'
before, when - a society has entered
jon this downward, progress, either
civilization r liberty must perish.,,

man Empire was in the fifth, with
this difference: That the Huns and"
Vandals, who ravaged the Roman :
Empire, came from without,'-' and "
that your Huns - and Vandals will '
have been engendered within your
own country by your own. institu

What One Glass of Wine Did.
' Tho influence which an apparent
ly insignificant circumstance often
exerts on the ' affairs of life, waS
well illustrated in the history of
the eldest son of Louis Phillippe, '
who was the heir apparent ' toNiis-
father's throne, and regarded'as
one of the most promising young'. i
men in France. Not given to dis-1 '
sipation, of a lofty and noble char
acter, and an officer of distinction
the army, thef hopes of his fami
ly, his friends, and his country, '
were centered on him. One morn
ing,, being about to take, his de- ;
parture from -Paris to join his reg-. .
jment, he invited a few compan
ions to breakfast with him, and in
the conviviality of the hour, drank . .

ding adieu to his companions, he '"
stepped into his carriage.;' Had it "
riot have been for . the "glass too
much," he would- have remained

But for the ''glass too much," vHe.r
would have alighted on his Jfeet; as
itwas, hisjiead; struck the pave"- ..'

was carried into a beer-shop, and
soon expired. . . ' v .
