Tlio speaker, after reading theso two
verses, said tho tunes nro very much
changed since tho A post Ion wore first
inspired by the spirit offlodtopen tho

pel that tho pomp of dross was confin

this disorder for it can to called by no
other name exists in all ranks and
classes of society. In fact, wo may
say that thcro is a groat deal more a
buso in tho present ago in respect to
vanity among the middle and lower
classes t han exists among thoso who
nro eonsidored to bo in pos itions of
wealth and opulence. Jtisiv ditilcult

All ornamentation is not contrary
to tho letter or spirit of tho Gospel,
but the excessive use of ornaments is a
prevailing vice among the foraalo sex.
Tho fashions aro extravagngant and
immodest. God sanctioned tho uso of
ornaments in tlio decoration of tho
temple and niter, in order to make
them nttractivo to tho Jows. That
which would bo proper in some case
would be improper in other. Tho
condition of n woman in life should
rogrtlate her dress. A woman whoso
husband was living persisted in wear
ing widow's weeds, nnd this drew oat
a letter from St. Austin, in whieh ho
laid down three rales for tho guidance
of women. First a married woman
should follow the will of hor husband.
It was a very good rulo, and the bus
bnnd present would no doubt bo very
much obliged to mo if 1 could induce
womon to lblloW the will of their hus
bands. Tho socond rnl! for those who
nro not married, but iny bo engaged
or seeking nn cngngoment is . equally
salutary: it is to follow tho will of their
fathers nnd mothers. Tho speaker
said if a young lady, now n-days, was
to como to mo and make secret confes
sion of tho fact that sho was going to
bo married nnd I should tell her to go
nnd consult hor parents, sho would say
I ought to have been born a hundred
years ngo. Thcro is nothing more
absurd, they think, than for you-g la
dies to conmlt their parents; but they
follow tho guidance of their own pass
ions, and the results nro divorces,
wretched lives, and still more wretched
deaths. Tho third rnlo of St. Austin
fvluted to those who had renounced
tho world, nnd they should follow the
will of Him. whom they bad choson to
follow. . ,
The first rnlo allowed considerable
indulgence in dress, which should bo
regulated by tho nga and season. A
little straw hat, exceedingly short
skirts, very short cropped hair, (which
n short time ago was tho fashion among
ladies considerably advmccd in years)
aro proper in girls from eight to ten
vcars of ago, but border on tho ridicu
lous nnd indecent in Indies of fifty sum
mers. Marriage is the normal condi
tion of men ami women, but when it is
not sought for by those who aro free to
enter into that state, itsliowsthat there
is a cause, and that cause is not fuvor
nblo to virtue, religion or tho good of
society. Only seven marriages wero
solemnized in tho church of St. Dridget
last year. The cause is apparent. I
broached tho subject to a young man
not so very young cither remark.
ing I henrd ho was going to get mar
ried. Ho turned, and with the sim
plicity of n child ten years of ago, said,
"Father Vayno, I am surprised that
you should ever think I was going to
bo married. Uless your life, (his very
words.) I could not keep my wife in
dry goods. Laughter. J When I be
come n rich man, then I will marry,
but not before, becnuso I want to do
tho thing properly." Laughter.
You smilo, said tho reverend speaker,
but I nm in earnest.
Ho bad n certain amount of reason
for what ho said, nnd that reason is
not creditable to the young women.
Extravagance in dress makes it diffi
cult for men in tho married state to
fulfill their obligations, nnd this is the
reason why young men ctD not want to
get married. The young womon hnve
become so fond of dress that thoyoung
men aro frightened, and this is not for
tho good of religion and society. Let
me give tho young ladies this advico.
lo less nnxioiisabont yout appearance;
spend less of your earnings adorn
ing your persons; and think of youv
souls, llemetnberlhattlio moment will
force itself upon you when you will bo
strcctchod out lifeless in thooflin.
When that time comes there will be n
singlo winding tdicct that may bo
bought for u few cents, to wrap you in.
Tho ornaments that remain will bo
ornaments of virtu which nave ac
companied you all through lito, and

Though tho groat vice nmong wo
men il tuo present uay is a want oi
economy, still there is something of an
immodest nature. Thero never was u
timo when women studied moro mil
ulously tho art of dressiirg than nt tho
present time. It has beeu reduced to
a regular system, and the dressing of
llio body isj'ist ns much an art ns
sculpture or painting. If tl o womon
had spent half as much timo in adorn
ing tlie soul ns llio botly, tney wouiu
have been stunt long since, leaving
ilio sterner sex in tho background.
Woman has a special missiou to re
movo tho rough spots and smooth the
uneven surface of man, and mako him
love purity bv presenting it to him
every day in her person. When Vo
lutin loigcin in r iiiiKNioii, mm lie i niiii
ilsexcito only illicit love, tho result is
social aim moral decrcdntion. -Young
ladies who dross in tho fashion
oltho present daj , dress not ns "become
women professing godliness with good
works." A few days sinco I was in
tho business part of Ivochester settling
tho nccounts of tho church, and alter
leaving tho bnnking-houso where
theso things nro dono, 1 slopped on tho
front step to look over tlio church
uk bonk to see that every thing w as
right. While I stood thero I over
heard two persons whom I took to bo
gentlemen from their clothes cer
tainly not otherwise. I rnisod my
eyes lo boo what should cnuso such re
marks, nnd saw three- young ladies.
two of whom wero ten or twelvo years
old, nnd tho third nbout seventeen.
They stood with their backs to mo,
looking through a magnificent store
window, where jewelry aud fancy nr
I tides were exposed to public gn.o.
The elder ono stood in tho middle,
nnd when lookiug closely through the
window she loaned forward; you can
understand whnt I mean by. this, nud
tho result wns what I beard said.
Those gentlemen were ntnading in
front of Power's Banking-IIouso, nnd
they saw something more than was
becoming; something not in accord
ance with strict rules of fi uinlo mod
esty nnd property. That young Indv
would havh resented nny imputation
ngninst her modesty, cithor in net or
intention; but tho onestion is, why
did she thus dress herself? Sho was
dressed in ft hoop-skirt of very extrav
agant dimensions, nnd tho result was
the remarks that erected my cars.
Tho A-oung lady would have been
shocked and blushed, nnd sho heard
them. But sho is inst ns responsible
before God ns ft drunken man who
had destroj'cd his reason is responsi
ble for his actions. Now, thero can be
but ono motivo in this fashion, nnd
that is to attract the opposite sex. I
don't know thnt this thine;, strictly
speaking, is nbsolutly wrong, but
young ladies commit nn error when
they suppose by attracting attention
they command tho esteem of the
sterner sex. There is sufficient vir
tuoleftina man to forco him to ro
spect and lovo woman ns long ns sho
respects herself, nnd leves niodnstv
and purity, but not u singlo moment
beyond that. J ho Duplex Eliptic ex
poses moro of tho person than ought
to be exposed.
JiOW-neckcd drosses, thanks bo o
God, do not exist lo tho extent thoy
onoo did. Such things nro absolutely
intolerable gross indecency.
Thero nro certain thinjrs for MifTinir
and padding which ono can not de

to mnko it womnn appear, lascivious.
It is a very common thins for a vouns
lady to go In n millinery store and ex
pend from twenty-fivo to ono bundled
dollars, and thi n issues from tho door
in such a way that her own mother
would not be ablo to recognised her.
The)' spend ft groat deal of money in
making themselves appear to tlio
young gentlemen prceisoly what they
are not. A young gontlomnn snid to
mo "Marty ; who am I to marry; You
don't know what they nro. They can
go into a millinery shop, nnd if you
marry them, you will find they nre
not-what they represent thomselves to
