[From the Loudon Daily News.] Publishing Marriage Engagements. When two young Germau people become engaged it is their custom, as most folks know, to announce the important lact in the newspapers. Among the advertisements of state lotteries, forthcoming operas, cigars of some famous “Fabrik,” and“echtes Wiener,” appears a notice of tbe accomplished “Verlo bung,” in which the names of the two lovers are united by a tender little hyphen. As a general rule, the compact is then considered indissoluble, aud there are not many who are bold or wicked enough to forsake tbe engage ment tlius publicly recorded, aud to give all their good-na'ured friends that opportunity for talking scandal which they deplore at the same time that they hasten to use it. How ever, accidents will occur; and sometimes the “Verlobung” is broken assuuder by the hard exigencies of lite. Most people in such a case prefer to say nothing anout it. “Sie hat die Treu gebrocheu, das Kiuglein ist entzwei,” sings the heartbroken lover, who goes away into strange lauds, and is in great grief until he finds some other young woman ol sympa thetic nature to console linn tor his loss. But at rare intervals a passion of. remorseful hon esty seizes the forsaken one, and causes him to tell tbe public frankly of what has befallen him. Such an instance, we aru told, has just occurred; and the young man, in advertising the fact that the engagement formally an nounced has been urokeu off by his sweet heart, states her reason. To his regret, he says, she “did not find in my deportment that gravity which she had a right to ex jiect.” This looks very like extreme modesty at first sight; but it is much more probable that it contains some covert sarcasm, along with an excuse flattering to the young man's vanity and self-respect. The sarcasm is di rected against the lady, of course—for the re jected lover is by circumstance, if not by nat ure, revengeful. She wanted gravity; let other young men be warned 1 As for him self, he was no gray-beard full of portentous saws and burdened with decorum. He was rather a gay ycuug dog; the marriage stale was, pernaps, or too muon uigimy ami re sponsibility for him; much as he regrets it, he must allow his charming fiancee to go elsewhere for a solemn and venerable spouse. Whether that be the explanation or not of the announcement, it is at least cue that the young man could carry with him into society in his search for a new bride. Now, theie can be no doubt that the pub licity attending such matters in Germany is very useful at limes. A (rightful amount of mischief is frequently-caused in England by the extreme shyness of maidens who secretly pledge themselves to marry, and remain pro foundly anxious that the tact should not be known. To begin with, unwelcome suitors hang about the house; and tue accepted lov er is driven to his wit’s end by jealousy; while the former are kept idling their time away in “tooling around” a girl who regards them not. Then the neighbors begin to talk and an indefinite amount of scandal is pro duced. Elderly persons, who ought to be at homo saying their prayers, will uevote hours to watebiug how many times in one evening a particular young mau dances with a par ticular young woman; and afterwards go about declaring how that shameful creature is deceiving her parents. By and by the se cret oozes out, within a certain circle; but the outside public knows nothing about it, and is left free to make comments if it finds those two young persons trea iug each other with too much familiarity. The lover stum-. bies into a thousand vexatious every day. If there is one thing more than another that drives him wild, it is to hear hii divine Clar iuda’s name mentioned by others, and to he “chaffed” about his intentions. Of course,] if the young men knew, they would as soon think of tickling the snout of a doziug alliga tor as of bantering a mau really engaged about any such thing. Then the young lady is pleased to learn lhat her continual meeting with a certain gentleman has been remarked; and curious elderly folks broadly hint to her dial they would like to know it there is really “anything in it.” Of course, there is much iu all this secrecy that a girl likes. She is willing enough to let a lew friends know; but to proclaim to the world her new relations with this suitor savors to her of un maidenly bolduess. She is not so slow to sauctiou the publication of a marriage advertisement. Then she feels that the die is cast. But the German girl is pretty near ly of the same opinion when she is engaged; and she knows that engagements which have been thus p ibliely announced are seldom broken off. Marriages come to grief as well as encaiienieuts; there is no certainty in life, li owever amiable and trustworthy ttie Hug hs b Jolin or the German Hans m ly appear in the eyes of liis beloved one. Sentiment aside, there are social advantages accruing from the trank publication of t!:e tact of an engagement which are obvious to the friends of the engaged young people it not to them selves* Hut these advantages are as nothing com pared to ttiose which would attend the cus tom of formally and publicly giving notice when an engagement is broken oft. Ol all the incidents of life tl.'ere is scarcely one which gives rise to such a.n intolerable amount ol scandal as a cancelled engagement of mar riage. Speculation is s et afire by it in a thou sand directions; aud the more simple aud ob vious the real reason for the circumstance happens to be, the more scornfully it is scout ed by alarmed aud puzzled but also delighted friends. Scarcely anybody who is in the re motest degree associated with eitiier ol the two principal folks, escapes the mitrailleuiie shower ot suggestions and suspicions; while the girl he rself, though she be as tender as Juliet, as wise as Portia, and as hardly en treated as Ophelia, is sure to lie called all manner of niames bv those ot her lady triends who always did consider her sly, conceited and no better than she should be. Look, oil the other hand, at the opportunity such a custom its that we mention would aftord to a manly y.oung fellow to come forward and say, “It is with great regret I bud m> cir cumstance* are not such as wouid warrant niv asking Miss Susan Smith to forsake a comfortable home”; or “My uncle having proved mi tan, Miss Jane Herbert very nroniDtlv re fuses to marry a man who can noi earn a ha Ifpeury for himself” ; or, “This is to give not ice that Miss Clara B. Seeley and myself having found after a long acquain tance, that our tastes and habits do not quite agree, we cancol our engagement, aud prefer to remain frien ds, with eveiy sentiment ot mutual esteem a ud respect.” And so on in a thousand eases, in which the young lady would, as it we.e “leave the court without a stain on her character.” At present what is the result ot a broken engagement when the period ot weeping and calling for a nun nery is over? The girl earns a good deal of compassion among her friends because she has been jilted; and the young man -who is probably quite innocent in the matter—la branded as a monster not tit tor this highly virtuous world. Then the story ol her hav ing been jilted gets abroad, and spreads and waxes luxuriant uutil its branches are as the branches ot the great tree Ygdrasil. Me in while, of course, young men who might have become suitors are warned off by vague hints and surmises. They cannot go to the former lover and ask what he found wrong about the girl’s temper, or about tier relations, or about the legacy her aunt was supposed to have left her. All those things would In avoided if the lover were to be allowed to in sert a briet notice in the papers informing 'he world in polite terms that, alter all, he found he was not good enough for her. From the N. Y. Tribune. The A. 11. Those first days of July drag us all per force into leisure; the city pastor preaches twice-used sermons to empty benches; the shopman yawns behind ills too orderly coun ters; the doctot’s patients have slipjied away to the mediums of trout streams or beach, and left him to read up his old numbers of tllH 1/lllCPt • »*. oil llio l.ruLnueiue «....I into ilie unwillii g dolcu Jar niente ot an ail day pipe and dram. Hut Toni and 1’hil and Bob, crowding the ears after the cointvence uient-day with their satchels and trunks full of old class-books and tin cases of specimens, would swear to you that the conflict of all life was just now at its heat; they have touched the tap and crown of things wi'.hiu the last week. Who ought to know' so well as they? Have they not stood apart for years, looking philosophically on mankind? These great warring lorces in sociology, in science, in politics, in religion, have they not the history of them all at their tongue's end ? It is perlectly plain to their eyes how these all now are about to join issue; how the world has reached its dark hour, its supreme throe, its ides of March, and evety lad of them with any thought or spirit in him fan cies himself the hero who is to bring help, the well-beloved Brutus who shall give to the tyrant, call him by what name you w ill, the death-dealing blow. The world of all Time, from old Homer and Sophocles, with whom they have jogged in company so long, to the envious “Sophs” staring at them from the depot doors, wait breathless to see them take high ratik in the great field of battle, and promptly make footsteps in the sauds of time. They feel—the ingenuous fellows—the imminence and sublimity of the passing da>s so deeply that the shoving, smoking crowd, men grumbling about tickets and bills of lad ing, women cackling over their babies, is to them only cor,temp ible aud vulgar. They bear themselves with a lotty indifference to the trivial remainder ot mankind, tall at a moment’s notice iuto deep reveries, with folded arms and eyes sternly fixed out of the window. What do those old fellows, with their noses boring into the financial column of the Tribune, or the conductor, know of the true philosophy of history, or the correla tion of tdrees, or tlie honey of Hymettus? They themselves have its ancient sweetness on their lips; they are generous in discover ing in each other the honey and fire and ichor of the gods. Not a car-load of A. ll.’s leaves the pooiest Alma Mater that does not contain the coming mail, poet, statesman, logician, who is to herald a new dawn, and to whom his mates doff' their bonnets loy ally. These beardless sages have manners and customs of their own. They are irreproach able as to shaving, shirt-cuffs or ueektio. They carry both an umbrella and a cane. There is a flat aibum with the class photo graphs in their coal pockets, but in the waist coat a carte and a bit of black or yellow curl, which they brought away last night Iroin the President’s party. They call loudly to each other across the car. In secluded corners they give many editions to the same joke about cel tain bottles of champagne last night. They lard their garments with tags of Horace, and glancing furtively around the ear, talk of the lloi poloi. The giaver an l more scholastic spirits sit apart, meditating upon their future. They are tither orthodox and devout, and destined to the miuistry, or hive just fipiahed a preuticeship ot Carlyle, and are now disciples of Emerson, with a hazy effort at atheism, which they think is uerman mysticism. a touch will hre them into argument which will last to the jour ney’s et.tl. Nothing else breaks their calm sell-poise; the brakesman stopping in the smoking-car to wipe his perspiring face and make a remark on the weather, or the sharp town lawyer with his “Just out of school, eh?’’ ate held oil by the same armor of grave dignity. But when the pretty gir' with the pink buds iu her hat goes out, and her polo naise flutters airly past their knees, they half rise and blush and stare and sit down, quite sure that they have never looked so like idiots. In a few hours each one of them will be lauded at home, cane, downy moustache, Greek, science and dignity, and presto! he <a not A. B., but Phil or Bob again. Whether he lias earned honors or not, he is a hero tor a few days, coddled and worshipped, the snuggest corner given up to his cigar and books aud instruments. But in a l«r‘„ uight he finds the world about him alien. There is uo room ol comprehension lor his protound theories, his gigantic plans. lli« lather puts the question sharply, “Is it to be tile law or the counting-house, Bob?” His mother, his tat, stocking-darning, pie-baking mother—lie thinks of his venerable Alma Ma ter crowned with the lore of ages, and turns away from the old lady witii half distaste. Then there are his sistcas, Pollie and >u.-, and the pert, pretty little chits tliat they bring about the bouse. He adventures among them, and Homer and Kant and Her bert Spencer vanish and leave him in the lurch; the brain is a wrung out sponge, his jaws are on fire, his collar runs into his ears, his arms and legs trip him up. Aud so he stumbles on day by day and year by year, pulled this way by diffidence, and that way by conceit, until he is shoved at last into his proper place in the world. Some day in middle age lie wakes up to find that he lias slaiu no tyrant, herajded no dawn; that lie, too, grumbles over tickets, or (Hires over financial columns; that he ha- forgotten Kant and Emerson and German infidelities, and is giveu over to zeal in the sugar trade or the spawning ol fish, or to a bleak iu the village church, of which he is an elder. Al ma Mater and her loves he remembers with a good humored laugh and nod, but there is nothing so sacred or dear to liiin, or so ollcn remembered, as the simple teachings of the old, iat, tender-hearted mother whom, when her work was done, he had laid reverently to rest in the church-yard. John Bunyau’s Immortality. There is nothing, or very little, that i9 new to be said about John Bunyan, or “Tbe Pil gum 3 rrogress, or allegory as au art, am yet it is, just at ibis moment, so bartl to ab stain from saying something. The irony of circumstance is so delicious, the victory of genius over prejudice so peifeet. the triumph of the writer over the squire and .lie magis trate—the triumph of the really strong over the apparently strong—so suggestive of hope. In 1674, Bedford imprisoned a traveling tink er for his impudence in preaching what he had to preach, which, as it happened, was a moderate form of Calvanism. In 1874, Bed ford raises a statue, given by a duke, to her greatest citizen, that very traveling tinker who never thought anything, or did anything or said anything which the world has csred to remember, except writing, amidst the foulness and the stenches of her borough jail, a story embodying a theology he preached. It is to the novelist of unique (genius rather than to the theologian that the duke erects a statue, ao.l of all who approve—that is, all England—not five per cent, would listen to the pteacher, or read an allegory from wliieli lus genius is apart. The |ierlect appreciation of the book and its writer, the utter content with both in minds over which the book lias no influence, and to which the writer's i>er sonaiity seems barbarous, arc, we believe, phenomena without a parallel in liter ary history. That Macaulay should wor ship Bunyan—that is as strange as that a sculptor should have been found who could choose Bunyau’s character as preach er as that which was most distinctive ol the man, who lives not because he preached, and preached, like thousands more, iu vain, but because, as he sat in gyves, and traced out probably with pain, the words which record his thoughts, he saw with dreaming eyes the story he relates—the lile of the man who, by whatever road, struggles lorward toward the far city, the haven of spiritual rest. It is because he saw the faces he de picts, and fell the struggles iie describes, ami dreamed ot the aid that he lias extolled, and heard the talk he has recorded, and not be cause he preached, that his name lives for ever. Thousands may have gone to hear him in Southwark, as the dean ol Westmin ster says, but it is not a-s au earlier Spurgeon that the English shaking millions reverence John Bunyan. llis preaching, like any oth er earnest preaching, may have left seeds in many minds which fructified in lives the world knows nothing of, but his claim on mankind at large is the work he wrought out in solitude and in letters, the one relgioux story which has chained a race.—The Spec tator, London.
