MONROE, LA., JANUARY 12, 1871.
Mr. C. C. Collins, of the Indian Vil
luge, has shown us some of the fruits of
his farm. O()ne is a corn stalk bearing
four ears, and the other a limb of cot
ton with nine boills easily covered with
the hand. The cotton is of the Herlong
variety, so well known and deservedly
popular among hill planters. Mr. Col
lins is a laborious farmer and a good
The ball given at the Courthlouse last
night, by the Silver Corke' Band, was
a well-managed and exceedingly pleas
ant social re-union. The music fur
nished by Professors Bbese 'ad Rob
erts was very fine, consisting, of the
flute and piano, and the dances em
braced quite a variety of movements,
including cotillons, waltzes, lancers,
polkas, marches, reels, &c. It was un
(loubtedly a very creditable affair to
Why Woman .Weds.
Seine' close observer of our social re
lations having looked about among his
,married female acquaintances, ventures
to give the following list, with an at
tempt to indicate the rhel reasons which
influence too many to marry:
Number one has married for a home.
She thought married life on earth was
but moonlight walks, buggy rides, new
bonnets, and nothing to do. W , 'he
has got her home; whether orft she
is tired of the incumbrances, this depo
nent saith not, inasmuch as this depo
newnt does not positively know.
Number two married because she had
-even young sisters and a papa with a
narrow income. She e6nsulted tgoin
twrests of her family. ,Perl 4
would better have consulted her own
interests by taking in light washing or
doing out by the day to work.
Number three married because Mrs.
-,unded so much better than Miss. She
was twenty-nine years andt elevep
months old, and another month would
have transformed her into a regular old
maid. Think how awful that would
Number four married because she
wanted sonmebody to pay her bili. . Her
husband married for precisely the same
reason, so they are both repenting at
Number five married because Fanny
White had a nice new husband,and she
wasn't going to be left behind. Pity if
-he couldn't get married as well as
Number six married bee7iuse spe was
poor and wanted riches! She never
counted on all the other things that
were inseperable from those coveted
Number seven mIiriried because she
thought she should like to travel. But
Mr. Number Seven changed his mind
afterward, and all the travelling she
has done has been between the well and
the back kitchen door.
Number eight married out of spite,
because her first love had taken to him
selfa second love ! This piece of retal
iation might have done her good at the
time, but in the long run number eight
found it did iiot pay.
Mumber nine married because she
had read novels and "wanted sympa
thy." Sympathy is a fine thing, but it
cools down at a rapid rate if the do
mestic kettle is not kept boiling, and
the domestic turkey is undone. Nov
well together4n ha'ness, to use a sport
ing phrase, and number nine's supply
of sympathy didn't hqld out 'veTry.1ug.
Number ten married because she
loved her husband with all her heart
alnd all her soul. And she loves him
still, aind will probably continueto love
him, and is the happiest wife in the
world-so she says.
We have all the right motive at last
sire and resolution to improve and ele
vate each other, ard to live tgte ,s<
holy lives before God, can not 'fai t4
call down the blessings of heaven.
But sad is the fate of those who marry
from wrong motives-to escape their
share of life's work or to get something
for which they have nothing to give in
