DISCING. Tlir Itnnre of Modern NoeirtT. Tlio follovrinfr Jg from a volume entitled 'Tho Dunce of Modern Society My Recusation Is that tho dance, Inntcnd of nftordinc nn opportunity for mutuully ennobling compnnloiiHliip between limn ami woman, In spired with a chaste nnd sweet interltised rc lnenibrance of their contranted relationship to each other that tho dance, intend of this. eon Bints vuhHtanllully of a system of means con trived with more than human ingenuity to ex cite tho inHtincts of the cx to action: however subtle and disguised at the moment, In Its seitiel the most bestial und degrading. I charge that here, and not elsewhere in the anatomy of that elusive fascination which belongs so peculiarly to the dance, the scalpel is laid upon the quiver ing sccrtt of life. Passion passion trnnsformed if you please never so much, subsisting in no matter how many finely contrasted degrees of sensuality i asslon, and nothing else, is the true basis of the popularity of the dance. I shrink almost "uncontrollably from this statement, now that I have made ft: and mnuy times since 1 first assumed so bold a position I have beun tempted to recede from iti overborne by the arguments, and still more by the sweet personal magnetism, of friends of' my own sex whose fortunate individual exemption from iii fiimlty disqualifies them from allowing that niv views arc other than Puritanic, or at lean morally "dyspeptic." It is not pleasant to bo a voice crying in the wilderness. Still less is It pleasant to bo sent to Nineveh on nu errand of Jonah. I am so tar Influenced ns to admit that there must bo numerous instances of ex ception to tho general rule. But the general rtlc, nnd net tho exception, should determine our line of conduct. It is a case so pecu lii r that the exceptions cannot safely be luinlttcd even to exercise an influence in de termining our line of conduct. On tho other h.md, too, I think it right to say that since the first publication of my views I have received volunteer testimony from so many quarters, and from quarters representing such diametric diver eity of moral and social character nnd position, corroborative of them from experience, that I find it impossible to qualify them now by a sin gle degree. One man in particular, my aequaluU unco with whom commenced in the earliest boy hood, and uninterrupted since, who permits nn un reserve of expression between us such as is seldom neident to later formed acquaintanceship, has emphatically confessed to me his wonder that a person who never danced himself should have been able so plainly and fully to tell th truth Wtwout Uaueing. And no man knows what the whole of the truth about it is better than he. Nor let it be supposed that I commit so vulgar an error us that of attaching undue weight to the testimony of one likely to have projected his own moral character upon the innocent companionship of his guilty plea sure. If it were proper to do so even in this anonymous way, 1" could cite an equally striking corroborative expression, conveyed to me through au unquestionable medium, from one whom I never met. but who, at every iioint, save com mon experience in dancing, is in the most anti- Iuxlal contrast to the witness just mentioned, am forced to conclude that the devotees of the dance differ among themselves not so much lu the influence received from participation in it. as in their intelligent consciousness of that in fluence. It is no accident that the dance is what It is. It mingles tho sexes in such closeness of per sonal upproach and contact as, outside of the dance, la nowhere tolerated in respectable socie ty. It does this under a perplexity of circum stances that conspires to heighten the impropriety of it. It is evening nnd the hour is lato; there is the delicious and unconscious intoxication of music and motion in tho blood, there is the strange, confusing sense of being individually unobserved among so many, while yet the natu ral "noble shame" which guards tho purity of man and woman nlone together is absent such is tho occasioiij . and still, hour after hour, the dance whirls its giddy kaleidoscope around, bringing hearts so near that they almost heat against each other, mixing the warm, mutual breaths, darting the fine personal electricity across between the meeting fingers, flushing the face and lighting the eyes with a quick language, subject often to gross inter pretations on the part of tho vile-hearted; why, this fashionable institution seems to mo to have been invented in an unfriendly quarter, usually conceived of as situated under us, to give our human passions leave to disport them selves, nnreproved by conscience, by reason, or by shame, almost at their will. I will not trust myself to sneak of. this further. My in dignation waxes hotter .than cau well be con trolled. I even seem to myself to have con tracted some soil from having merely described truthfully what thousands of fellow-Christians, ignorant of themselves, practise without swal lowing a qualm ! I say that the dance is not fortuitously such. It is such essentially. Its real nature is shown by what it constantly tends to become, in new figures, Introduced stealthily from time to time (under silent protest from many who suffer their modesty to bo overborne by the fear of beln" charged with prudcry) a little more doubtful than the old, and in wauton whirls, like the waltz and the polka. Always the dance inclines tnnltiiili. niinArtnnitina rt . i li i in 1 ,,rnvl ,,ii 1 V I and contact between tho sexes; alwnys to make V them more prolonged and more daring. In tine, I the dance adds that last ingredient of perfect I Miss, whose absence the witty Frenchwoman I bethought herself, ia tho midst of some iuno J cent enjoyment, to mourn with u pathos more 1 pathetic than they dream who see nothing but a whimsical humor in the saying, "Moh Dieu I how delightful this is ! It would be quite por 1 l'fct, if there were only a little sin in it." "ycit if what has already been said and sug- ved fails to conviuco any that my analysis of J pleasure of the dance Is true, I have a little jTroblem ta propose for their solution: Why is I Fit that tho dance alone, of all tho favorite diver- .

Tho problem is not solved by the ready reply, "Why, the pleasure of social intercourse is always heightened when both sexes participate in it. We enjoy an evening at cards the better for this piquant commingling!" But you have missed the point of tho problem. The question is not, why do you enjoy the dance more when men and women execute it together? buLwhv must men and women execute it together in order that they. 6hould enjoy it at all? No doubt a came of cards may be much more be witching, while not an lota more hurtful, for the meetini? of the sexes at the table, lint then cheaply figured parallelograms of pasteboard have charms for thoir devotees or either sex, rl.lnl. ..int.l. tlmii, 1 1- litM.iiun with llin srri,tv of tho other.

Pensive and imaginative young ladles mlgjjt possibly, here and there, of a lone some evening, seek "to revive a diluted illusion of past pleasure, by a few strictly maiden mea sure executed with soon exhausted enthusi asm, but with meu hardly ! unless, perhaps, in broad farce, to point a whimieal contrast.

THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPHPHILADELPHIA MONDAY, rally unrecognized by the subject. If only un consciousness of evil influence were a trust worthy prophylactic n gainst it! Once again, and for all, I protest, with the utmost sincerity, that I am far from confounding the devo tees of tho dance in an Indiscriminate ac cusation of conscious Impurity. I know too many pure-hearted women among dancers, whom no fortunate sou, or brother, or husband could possibly charge with one doubtful f nought, for even nn Instant of tho moMt obli vious excitement, not to be myself Indignant in purging my intension of any "such cruel initis tiee. And in the opposite' sex, too, however much more exposed by nature to temptation, there aro pome dancers, no doubt, who conic very near to escaping the conscious contagion of c.il, by virtue of nn Instinctive chastity in them, (iod's gift to a few. But, right on tho heels of do wide a disclaimer, I must reassert my conviction that unconsciousness does not defend even tho purest minds from something of the Insinuating sensual tendency of this in herently voluptuous amusemsnt. . And then consider, j-c Christian fathers and brothers and husbands, to what horrible hazards of contact the opportunities of the dance expose your daughters and siwtors and wives. For who, that has gained any experience of the world, is ignorant of the fact that hardly once does a con siderable party assemble, even" in tho most re spectable society, without including some mini whom his associates know to be a libertine at heart, if not in life? To think of pure women pastured on, with palms of pollution, and with imminent eyes of adultery, by such a bull of Hashan the evening long! i tho promiscuous corral of the dance ! What better facilities could be imagined for an accomplished volup tuary to compass the capture of his prey ! Faugh ! lu tho ordinary occasions of society, a lady may let her sacred "intuitions have soiho play to guard her against the access of impurity in the uniform of a gentleman. But it is the boast of the dance that it is a democrat and a leveller, permitting no individual caprice to break tho circuit of universal equality. You may shudder to your heart's core at the contact that is coming but the dance leaves vou uo election you must take it when it comes. Blush, blush, henceforth, ye Christian women, when you nre invited to submit your persons to the uses of a diversion that may at any time choose to bring you flugcr-tip to-flnger-tip with thoso whoso touch is pollution, or, it may be, encircle you in their arms ! A burning blush of speechless shame were the best reply to the iu sultof such an invitation. But I plend against au advocate more eloquent than any individual's words. O Fashion ! Fashion ! "What power hast thou to browbeat holy nature, so that she dares not speak to assert her sacred claims against the imperious sway ! I abruptly des patch this hateful subject without completing the discussion of it. If my readers have winced at the exceptional plainness of speech which I have used, 1 beg them to believe that it has cost me sincere pangs of resolution to use it. But I have written under duress of conscience tliat did not suffer me to shrink. The engineer ing skill of the Devil has defended the dance with a masterly dilemma that leaves open barely two alternatives of attack about equally ineli gible. Tou may cither exhaust your strength in demonstrating the minor aud incidental evils of tho usage, in which case you win au easy, but also a barren victory; or you must freely en counter the peril of damaging your own fair fame for purity, and deliver your blow full at Its inherent nnd essential immorality. The nuthwr has deliberately chosen the latter alternative, lie can trust the honest heat of iudiguatiou that has warrued his words to take away the offense of their extreme fidelity. As for the risk of being charged with bring'ing the impurity that lie linds, 'he contentedly accepts it. ft is a charge that two classes of persons certainly will not prefer. These two classes are, first, "those who know him, and, secondly, those who know themselves. UUME IN FKANCE. The PrlnrcNM Ysabeuii in Court A Jenoral' Wife Arrenlecl and Tried for .stealin gSensa tioiiM in Purls. The correspondent of the New York World writes from l'nris, May 25, a letter from Paris. In it we find the following: I intentionally postponed mentioning Princess Tsabeau do Heuuvau-Craon's appear ance in court, for I think there is nothing more provoking than to commence a story and break it off in the middle with a refer ence to some future day. Judgment has been delivered, and I mnv' now tell the story to the end. Princess de lieauvau-Craon brought suit (as I mentioned some tin 3 since) to have her daughter, Trincess Ysabeau, de clared non compos and placed in custody of a committee. The decree was granted, but Princess Ysabeau took an appeal and asked leave to plead her own cause. It was, of course, granted. When she rose to speak, the presiding judge cautioned her against allowing passion to betray her into intemperate language. The couit-room was unusually crowded, especially by lawyers, for it was known she was to speak. She arose gracefully and easily, and in a very musical voice, pitched in the tone of conver sation, presented her defense. "I do not merit your warnings,Mr. President, for I can riot forget my adversary is my mother; and whatever wrongs I may have received at her hands 1 owe her none the less nlial respect. I shall say nothing against my mother but this: I am afraid she takes too good care of the collateral line of our family, As for my uncles, Mr. Senator do Mortemart, Mr. Deputy Marc de lleauvau, Mr. Omer Talon, I cheerfully crive them credit for pure in tentions. It is said they were disinter ested in their deliberations against me; 1 grant you it. They have the disinterestedness winch uncles may have who will he, n you indue lue insane, the next heirs of their niece I fiin accused of being fond of horses. Is that evidence of madness? It is a taste I have in common with persons of the best society aud the soundest reason. I am fond of horses as intelligent animals, but as reasonable crea tuies. I feel towards them only that attach ment which man never refuses to thoso intel ligent beasts he has reduced to his service and whop fidelity is sometimes devoted. think of horses as Button thought of them, namely, there is some nobility in their ardor A tiraver accusation is brought against me. study the sciences, I nm fond of natural phih sophy, and, abominable thing, I am impiisitive ubout spiritism. But, pray how long has it been since it was forbidden women to study serious subiectsV Pray, are they to read nothing but futile novels.' Are mey to oo re norted insane because they take up some sfudies which men vmrsue with passion? Is not this to hold woman's intellect too cheaply? Morever, I have eccentric habits! What, if a woman practises pistol-shooting, will you say she U insane? If she is fond of swimming, is she insane? If she pays attention to her horses, is she insane? It is truo I have tra velled; I have visited several countries of i'.urope; will you judge me crazy for that? One dny the lightning leu on a emmney oi tho chateau, and I am accused of having said it was General Jusnf's soul which eiuno to visit me. I deny I made such a declaration. I dare say our soul may be a ihtme; but I can never consider a ball of fire a hnmnu soul." After such a dofenoa it was clearly impossible to declare Princes Ysabeau a lunatic, liUl me iniuiijr mimum. o v.cr, nu great that the court decided she ought to be protected ngaiust her weakness and good nature, and ordered she should have a com- 1 iiii'.fPA B.iiiomtea to luauaua umiimi", ' ta(lBt U, de Morten.art, l'rinee Marc I do He lleuuvau, Muruiu Oiuer Tulou, aui Count tie MefTiny her committee.

Mum. lalpnget is) the widow of a distinguished jpeneral of thfl French nrniy. Hhe was at one ime superintendent of the linen in the Palace f St. Cloud, but was dismiHsod for reasons which had best be left unsaid here. A few weeks since they were detected in the act of (stealing in the Villeis de France. The clerk ordered to watch them saw tho Mad'lle Feli cife Dalpuget Blip under her paletot a piece of poult de soie containing no Ichh thu fteventy-one yarda. Thoy were at once ar rested, but ' a retired attorney, Mid lie ' chcites guardian, became, bail for them, nnd they were released. Thoy fled next morning to Uelgimn. Their house was searched and found to bo filled with laren, silks, woollen goods, handkerchiefs, gloves, stolen i'om different ahopa. Mine. Dalpuget s brothers-in-law, men in high positions, p iid Lltfi heveral haberdashers the value of the Ktoleu property. Tho mother was sentenced to a year's, the dauyhtor to a six months' im prisonment. The very day this judgment was published the wife of a Judgo of the Cour dos Comptes was detected in the act of steal ing a box containing twenty-four dozen pairs of gloves. Sho was arrested, but her hus band had influence to prevent further legal proceedings, nnd to get the haberdasher to say it was a mistake. While the town was in hubbub about this arrest, one of our most fashionable ladies went into one of our well known lace shops in the line Richelieu to choose some Valenciennes lace. She was shown a great many patterns. None of them suited her. These were too heavy, those were too light. f?he quitted the shop without making any purchase. Iu these shops there is always a clerk posted to watoh each cus tomer stealing is common ! Ho saw the fine lady slip a piece of laco under her paletot. Who was watched home. Five francs slipped into the porter's hand got her name. Half an hour afterwards another clerk was standing before her with a small parcel and a note in these words: "Madame, I am extremely afraid the thirteen ynrds of lace you selected this morning in our shop may scarcely prove sufficient to trim your dress, therefore I have ventured to take the liberty to send vou a second piece of the same pattern. May I beg vou to be so cood as to let me know by the bearer if you accept it. lleeeive, Madame, the assurances of my most distinguished con sideration." The note was signed by the owner of the shop. It need scarcely be said she paid for both pieces at once, aud was very glad to be let off. so easily.
