There is nothing more appalling to
a giodest and sensitive young manin,
than asking the girl he loves, to inrry
him, and there are few who do not i'd
their moral courage tested to the ut
turii oit.
Man.y-a-nan who would lead a for
lorn hope, mount a breach, and seek a
"reputation in the cannon's nouth,"
trembles at tih, idea of asking a wo
man the question which is to decide
his fite. Ladies may congratulate
themselves that. nature and custom
have rmade them the responding party.
In a matter wl.ieh men have always
found so terrible, ) et which, one way
or other, ta:ey have always contrivel
in some awkward way to accompnjlish
it is not easy to give instructions suit
ed to every emergency.
A man naturally conforms to the
disposition o the woman ho adimbers.
If she is serious, he will approa It the
awful subject with soleimnity-if
softly sentimental, he must. Woo i.er in
a strain of high wroi.ght roimince, and

limb ; tIlough his hva1 t fills Iup his
throat. and his tongue cleaves it the
roof of his ruonth. yet t he a (i I ques.
tion iiiust he asked-the fiirfuI task
accomplished.
In the coiuntry, the lover takin a
romantic walk by mnni 411 igit, with the
lady of his love-taiks of the scenuiry,
the hariimony of nature, atid exclaime
"Ah Julia, how ha1ppv would exi tier

She s glis and l-a .s ioire fundl, oi

'This is a settler, and thle answer,
ever so inaudible, miakes or undoes inm
quite.
'lake pity on a forlorn bach, br, says
another, in a mnanner whiebi may it
either jest or earnest ; rearry inc at
once and put tme out of my riisery.
With all ty heat t. whetever on
are ready, replied the laughing litr. A
joke carried thus ihr is easily irade
earnest.
A point is often carried by taking a
th'g im grraited. A geii leun% 1h.,
has been paying his* artunitionsa to a
lady ; says, " Well, M~ary, wvhen as the
happy day ?I What day, prany ? :,he
asks ; with a conicious Olun-h.
WhV y every body knows we are
going to get miarried, and it miiig..t a
wvell be one t iime as anoiither,:,o whieni
shall it be ?
Cornered in this fashion ; there is
no retreat.
Jane 1 love you ! will you Inarry
me '? would be somewhat, aberupt, aiid
a frantkhy givenl " Yes !." would be too
short.'ur an answer.
Ellen, one word from you would
make mec the hitppiest muan in exist
ence.
I should be cruel not to speak
it then, unless it is a very hard oine.
It is a word of three letters, and
answer the question, WVill you mnairy
me ?
The lady ofcourse says yes, unless
she happens to pirefer a wvord of onily
two let ters, ai.d answers No.
And so this interestiing and terrible
process, in practice simpihle as it is ini
a hundred waiys according to circumi
stances and the various dispsitiouns.
One timid gentlenami asks, I have
you any objection to ebaunge 3 our
name ? and follows this tip with ainotfi
er which clenches its sigmificane how
would mine suit yin ?I
Another asks, WVill you tell we whlat
imost wish-to know ?
Yes,. it 11 ean.*
The happy day wihen we shall be
married ?
Another says, My Eliza, we mosit do
what the world evideintly expects we
shall.
All the world is very' impertinent.

W hen shall I tell the parson to be
ready ?
As a general thing, a gentleman
need never be ref'u-ed. Every wemani

Colton Seed.
It ean'be noii longer que.tioned that
the cotton seed. in many parts of our
Coiilttry, is fast degenernting, and we
hear fl cquent complaints on the sub.
ject.
The plants in many places are not
so vigorouls in growth, nor in quanitity
and qualit y, prmoduredl as ibrineri v.
We are a.sureI that the staple mI' the
cIittecn is being setriously afl'eted by
this degenaeraation of thu cotton seed.
Various reasons are assigned. One
thi:ks it is owing to the condition of
the soil or weather-another thinks it
is owing to the defective mlannleri of
the culture. I miust clhainge my seed
says a thir d, and t hus a variety of can.
Jectures a o started.
The reason of this degeneration is
made to appear when we consider
that, year after year our planters pitch
their era ps ith seed taken proiniscu
ously from the field. It the Very ta.
Lure of things it rm.ast dwindle and in
course oif tiuie become dwarfish ; and
ntotwithstanditg it deipreeiate under
their eyes, they still pursuo tie insane
pobey. Upon the same principle
your stock of horses, cattle, or hogr,
would degcnerate and run out. We
do nit, therelore wonder th:it your
cotton is toos vriously aUeted to give
vig.or of grwih and contitition.
There is 1i, need to change yi.ur
seed-all t biat yon have to d+ is to pass
