Tbe discourse ia founded on 1. Cor. xiv: 34 "Let your women keep silence in the churches tor h is not permit ted unto (hem to speak." It is a production of superior exrellence, and we would rejoice, if it were practicable, to have copy sent to every Female school, and into every fain iiy where there is a daughter to be trained. The relation to each other, and the differ' ent sphere of the sexes, is thus gives ia the exposition of the text : ' This injunction is found amongst certain rales which were given for regulating the exercise of those spiritual gilts that were peculiar to tbe Apostolic limes. The Cor inthian Christians, coming together foi wor ship, bid acted in a disorderly manner, by offering may persons, wbo were sparently possessed of the supernatural ability to teach their brethren in spiritual matters, to speak all at once, thereby producing tbe most un ediiying confusion. Paul woold correct this evil by exhortations which, taken together, amount to this: "Lei one, not several at a time, interpret." But this difficulty be!nr removed, bis authority aims a blow at Mill nether, which, though more subtle, was not more tolerable. Women, feeling themselves gifted with the power of supernatural speech joined their voice to those of the other sex. in an attempt to edify the Church. The Apostle silence these misguided zealots, by an appeal to those early Scriptures, which show the woman to be "under obedience," and that in ail dirinelv appointed assemblies of Christian people, they were to be earners ratber than instructors. And he adds, in the way of an appeal to enlightened reaon: Jt is a shame lor women to speak iu the Church." Indeed, there is broad allusion, throughout the entire passage, to that gen eral doctrine of Scripture, and its instinctive acknowledgment by mankind, that no human society can exist in its due order, or produce Its proper results, unless the two sexes occu py always their respective position.: the one ruling as the heud, and the other subject to that head. But, it mav be aked, to what purpose did God endow these Corinthian wives and daughters with special gins, if they were not silowed tc exerrise them in common with those husbands and fathers who were simil arly endowed 1 What could the four daugh ter of Philip do with hi grace of pliroplie- cyf i he reply is obvious. They could cx .11 ,;. ,.,-1 iil,i th .DDMinted KnhRrr, nf ri;nr ,.. I rr- - i . Tbey might do the work of ediiymg thpcn selves, and of enlightening others in private intercourse. Certainly, they must not at tempt to do the less good ol teaching in pub lic, and thereby disturb the whole foundation of the grea ter good v hich arises out of the firei relation ol the soxj.-s. They ore not to te be deprived of all religlius influence, bttt only of the liberty to exercme that influence improperly. Their work is indeed a inigh. ty one for the benefit of the race; but it does not lie in lite region where the loud voice is to claim audience from the public ear; but in that other and more retired region where the soft voire fa to exert a less obtrusive, though uot leSR effective, power not in the Church, but iu the little meetings of the fam ily; where are those sacred gatherings of children obeying the call of maternal love; where are these frtquent re-unions, which the table, tbe fireside, the worship hour, wit ness, where are those nameless outgoings and incomings, which nothing so well guards, or so steadily regul.iles, us the soft but firm hand of womanly affection. Nj doubt, many of the females whom the Apostle rebukes, were more highly gifted, in very way, than were they of the other sex houi he uliou ed to speak in preference. And no doubt, in numerous instances among us now a days, would the utterances of re fined end cultivaied women, on religious and other subjects, be more fur the improvement of publie assemblies than the coarser tbo'ts of uien less gifted and more meanly trained. And it is not upon this idea that the monstrous conduct of a whole, class of modern women has sought to justify itself, in thrusting into bolt! publicity their unshrinking persons anil unfetnimne sets, Ben, fro:' While the wjinin U not to for get at neglect her power, neither U she to lose e'ght of its kind, or fail in the measure ment of its just limits.

She is to take fver honored place at the fountain head of the great rnffuences which control, through many a stream of Hfef the maier interests of time and the' one mighty interest of eternity.

I do not care to discuss the question of the relative superiority of the sexes for It think that i is a very foolish question. God' made each' superior ia its own place. They are the two perfect halves of an indivisible whole. Each is wanting in some of the qualities which the other possesses, simply because these are not needed for seeming the respective ends of their being. On one occasion wheu David prayed for special bles sings upon his people, he seems to have gladdened his heart with tbe prospect of strong, energetic. Courageous, commanding sons nf Israel shading beneath their manly virtues, the prudent, retiring, affectionate Bisters and wives of their homes each se occupying its own posture, and compute in that. But im sacred write r ever leads Ms readers to suppose that young women, tboagh unrugged and soft of nature) are designed only for the ornaments of society. Every where in Scriptures are they recognized ss co-workers with men in all the scenes of a true living. The Psalmist, indeed, prays that tbe daughters of Israel might be as "corner-stones, polished after the similitude of a palace;' beautiful, indeed, to tbe eye, but also most useful. The 'corner8tonee" ol the great social edifice are not1 merely polished and showy they also effectually bind and mightily strengthen. They sustain vast weights they support huge walls. Their , WitM removal would rain tbe entire pile. Better plock all its glsries from the spire than die-tars- the most ffDcijftrtly cetnefft of tbe foun dations.

Tbe woman has her place in so ciety accurately defined. And let ber, if she will) boast that ia in the most essential ' P,rt of lne foundetiooe upon which eociety rests, Underneath all, and sending out on every side clamps of binding power, are her tender love, and patient endurance, and un limited devotedness while, over all, are the soft beauties of her domestic virtues, and tbe sweet attractions of ber veiled rtlicacy. The poet meant to crown her with true Htir lical honors when he said : "A voatt'l propr sttfn t rHrnat." 9 But, then, this does not imply that she is- to live in the social obscurity of either a child or slave. God has, indeed, made her phys ically weak, and therefore given ber a station away from tbe rush and storm of life. But for tbia lack of bodily strength, and this need of retiring from the public eye, she has been endowed with qualities which are more than a compensation. Whilst her weakness is j ber greatest protection, she. witliiu the shel ter of that protection, exercises a tremend ous influence. The very softness which be longs to ber sex, conquers the hardness of a rougher manhood wherever met in any of '.he conflicts of life. She cannot complain of a want of influence when she is content to be true to herself. Indeed, through the lorce of those peculiar beauties which throw around ber a thousand attractions, she has not only been carried up with man to co equal occupancy of all the real honors of life, but, seized by an intoxicated imacriua- . tion, has, in many countries, been lifted far j above ber proper place, and robed iu honors which angels are alone fit to wear. But if the Bible condemns that savagisin w Inch makes of woman a beast of burden, so does it frown upon that false civilization which crowns her with angelic glories. She is no more man's dream than she is man's alave. She is neither an object with which to sport away the otherwise leaden hours, nor au object upon which tyranny is to exercise its cruellies. She is one-half of the great human unit, and is, like the other ball, just a matter-of-fact personage, whose appropri ate work is belore her; fur entering upon which work, she is supposed to be fitted by nature , and up to all the requirements of which she is to be trained, by roine process of education which will bring into harmoni- I ..: . ; ...

A parental mistake ia training is thus noticed : Do we not find, throughout the country, a large number of institutions which invite our dau 'liters to their class-room of scientific instruction, and their parlors of 'Jady -like ac complishments, and their, chapels of relig ious worship! Yes, but iu many of these schouj, does there seem to float through all their atmosphere, the idea that woman was made more lor ihe pUyoi life than its work ! pecf that he will invariably be found fault more lor the superficial gilding of society j wiib by bis wife on his return home, and than for its solid "corner-stones" more for ! that the burden of her words will be coin show in public than for service in retirement? ' plaint, he has absolutely no pleasure to an- i . rn :-!.. is 11 not too sau a irum mat. very many par ents would rather see their daughters capti vating than see lhin useful rather have Iheui admired as household paintings for drawing-rooms, adorned to be frequented by he many visitors from the streets, than re garded as, each one, a staff ot stro ngih tor old uge to lean upon iu the quiet scenes of home, or from whom, as parental co-helpers, the younger lile of the family may take les sons ol virtue, amid ihe secluded, but sweet, intimacies of sitting-room and nursery! There are, iu tru'Ji, some reasons for such a state of feeling with regard to young wo men. The wealth, or the pretension lo breeding, which makes work with the bands unnecessary or unbecoming to the son, thus softens him into ihe late sleeper and the parlor lounger, uufitting his soul for the struggles of earnest living, tends, also to make of his sister a mere cosily flower, wh ise chief function is to fill the house with the artificial fragrance of her airy captivations a sweet companion, lo be petted for a few years of languishing lite, and then, alas! seal down into the real w rld, to fill wilh s;ghs the entire history of a wretched wife hood, and exhibit the mental and moral in competency of a nervous mother. Oh! how many an ill-educated daughter is lef t, when iu a bewildering home of ber own, and called to train a dear household, depending upon herself almost alone, to mourn over those lost seasons which parental folly filled with vanity, and bitterly in her heart to curse the hard lot which that folly created lor her. She has been made until for time, and un prepared for eternity. What is miscalled society meaning not intercourse in- suitable ways with all the children of our common parentage, but merely interchanges of formal recognitions, within understood metes and bounds, shut ting out alt beyond in social barbarism this society demands an education for the daugh ter which shall keep her in constant eepera tioii from all classes which are considered below ber station of life,- K gives up every thing for polish, h expends its thousands: upon parlor boarding schools located at cen tral street corners-. It patronizes pretension-. It gives its money to add fresh paint to mere ostentation. It throws its loudest arm about those mighty head teachers who' prom ise much artd accomplish- little.- There is too little taste lor the solid iti education. There is-too meagre an acknowledgement of the existence of the responsible mind of the pupil a marked forgetfulness of ihe awful trust which G'od has committed tu his intelli gent creatures almost a purpose manifested' to destroy every idea of useful living in the exaltation of admired living a- dreadful darkening of ihe true nature of the woman beneath the artificial draperies of the lady! But surely this is not iha education' which God requires us lo give to cnir dependent daughters! This ia not the sort of training which religion demands! The whole discourse is worthy of being reproduced. T H K Y O U N Q W I E. T TIMOTHT TITCOXB. Young wife, I talked to your' husband in my lust letter, and now I address you. I told bira thai you havK a claim on his time and society. There are qualifications for this claim which concern yuu particularly, and' so I speak to you about them. Your hus band labors, all day every day and during the walking hours, between the conclusion of his labor at night and itr commencement in the mcrning, he must hatte recreation' of some hini;- and here comes in your duty If you do not make his home pleasant, ao that the fulfillment of his duty to you- rbl e "gwrasla i$ibiA&Jto DELAWARE, OHIO, be a sweet rleisare to him, you cannot hope for much of hrs company. What bis frafe craves it will have orrast nave. He can riot be s4ave all tbe tffe a slave to bis work by day aoJ a slave to you by night. He must have hours offreedom; and bappy are you if, of his own choice, he take tbe eu- joyment yoe offer in the place of eaythfrtg which the outside world has to give.- J sups pose there sre few men, who, wtass the work is over, and their supper eaten, do oot have a desire to go down town "to meet a man'' or vfcsk "tbe post office." There i c tnt- urar desire in every heart to have every day an hoar of social freedom few minutes' j not long detain him from his wife. He may at least, er a wall i the opfe iff air, and co.- igo t "the post-office, but he will not call tact with the arhvr oi eciier new. This ts'ttpou the friend's wife on the way. He can enairely a trot aval1 aftttf fjfee'essary thing; and ' 'r"y6Mter. Tbe great danger is that he will foe sbocrld encourage rather than seek to prevent it, unless your husband is inclined to visit bod- pla-eea? and associates with bad companion's'. Precisely here is a dangerous point for both husband and wife. Tbe wife has been alone during tbe day, and thinks that her husband ought to spend the whole evening wklfcrr. Tbe husband has been confined to his labor, and longs for an hour of free dom, iu whatever directioo his feel may choose to wander. Perhaps ibe wi'fe thiHiks he has bo bssmees' to wtler at all, and that Fif custom to wander to widely and too long. She complains, and becomes exact ing. She cannot bear to have her husband out of her sight for a moment, after he quits his work. Now, if there be anything if tt'Ji this world that xif nvake a husband hale his wife, it is a constant attempt on her part to moitop&lize U his leisure, time ewf- all his society, to curtail Uis freedom, and a tendency to be forever freitJngp ears with the statement that "slio ifHAbxg of coarse"', :jra, thrrt j-oot is to be done and by thedai that he "doe bo espe rryl!r about her," I ly nd q,uiet virtues of life, the Christian- and that he dislikes his home. Treatment like this will just as certainly arouse a-lf Sire peryerseness of a mas's nature as a spark will ignite guwpuwder.- fnjiirticeawd'in'CoB'-tiderateness- will not go down, especially when administered by a man's couipanioo.. lie knows lhaf be love rw home and that he needs and has aright lo a certain amount of his time, nway irmn home; and if he be treated as if he possessed no such uecessily and right, he will sooi lean to be all lht his wife represents him to be, I tell yott that a man wants very carefal handling. You must remember that he can owe no dit ty to you which does not involve a dtHy from you. You huvc the charge of tbe home, and if you expect him to spend a portion, or at allot his evenings in it, you must make it attractive. If you expect a man, as a mat ter of duty.lo give any considerable amount of time to your society, daily through a long scries of years, you are to see that society is worth something to him."

I can touch only a few po-.nts. 1n Ibe first place, she should never indulge in faulifiudiug. If a man baa learned to ex- licipate and none to eni y. i uere is but one alternative for a husband in such a case either to steel himself against complaints, or be harrowed up by them, and made snap pish and waspish. They never produce a good effect, under any circumstance what ever. To ere should always be a pleasant word and look ready for hini who returns from the toils of the day wearied with earn ing the necessaries of the family. If a pretty pair of slippers lie before the fire, ready for his feet, so much the better. Then, again, the desire to be pleasing in person should never leave a wife for a day. The husband who com ;s home at night an i ! finds his wife dressed to receive him dress- j persons w ithin 8 miles of Frt Hope, who ed neatiy and tastefully, because she wishes are averaging per man 2j ounce of goll to be pleasant tu his eye cannot, unless he per day minium to 6 ounces per day mas- be a brute, neglect her or slight her grace lull pains taking. It is a complaint to him. Il displays a desire to maintain the charms which first attracted him. and to keep in fact the silken bonds which her- tasteful J girlhood had fastened to his fancy. j I have seen things maniged very diffjr- I ently from this. I have known an undressed ' head of "horrid hair" worn all day long, be- cause nobody but the husband would see it. I I have seen breakfast dresses Willi sugar plantations on them of very respectable size ant most disagreeable sticKness. In short I have seen slatterns, whose kiss would not tempt ihe hungriest hermit i hat ever forswore I to obtain little sweet cakes, which' he tra wotnan and was sorrv for it. 1 have seen ' ded off four or five for $L in- gold-dost. " them wilh neither collar nor zone, with- person which did not possess a single charm, to a husband with his eyes open, and his' right mind. Tins is all wrong young wife, for there is no being in this world for whom it is so much for your interest to dress as, for j your husband. lour Happiness (jepetnra much on your retaining not only the esteem of yonr husband, but his admiration. He should see no greater neatness, and no more taste in material' and fitness, in any wo rn a u's dress than in yo'irs; and there' rsrm individual in the world before whom' ycu should always appear with more thorough tideness of person' than' your husband.- I'f you ore careless in this particular, you- atso' lutely throw away some of the strongest Cad moet charming influences Which you pus-sess.- What is true of your person is also true of your house. If your house be disor derly; if du-:t cover the table, and irivite the j criiitial fisger' to write your proper title; if the' furniture look as it it Were tossed into a room' from' a cart ; if your table cloth have a mure intimate acqtiuiiMatice wilh gravy than with soap, and from cellar' to garret there- be no' order, do you blame a liu&Uoaii for not' Watltlrlg' to' ait down-and spend" His even ings with yuu! P slmuld2 blame, him of course, on general principles-, but, as1 all nen- are nut eo svneibJe as I am, I shuuMebafit- ably ert-tertsi a-H proper excuses. . StilFagSina, have you anything to- ttrtli a- h-iul snything better than scandal with wliwh to interest, ond refreeh his weary miixf? I believe in the interchange of caresses, as I have told you before, but kiss es are only the spice of lile. Yi u tni.not always sit on your husband's knee, for in the first place il would tire liim, and in the second place, he would get sick of it. You should be one with your husband, btit nev er in the shape of a parasite. He should be able to see growth in your soul, inde pendent ofbim; and whenever, he feels that he has received a s'imulu to progress and to goodness, you have refreshed him, made a great advance into his heart. He should see that you really hsvo a strong desire to make him' happy, and re tain' forever the warmest place in his respect his admiration and his affection. Enter into all his plans with tnierest. Sweden' all I) is' troubles wilh' your sympathy. Msfce him feel lhft there is one ear shvays open' to SEPTEMBER 17, 1858. j the revelation of his experiences, and there J is one heart that never miscontrues him, t that there ia one refuge for him in all cir- cumstances, and that in all weariness of body and soul, there ia one warm pillow for his ! head, beneath which a heart is beating with I .be same unvarying truth and affection, through ail gladness and sadness as tbe faithful chronometer suffers no perturbation of hs rhyrm, by shine or shower. A hus band wbo has such a wife as this, has little temptation to spend much time away from home. He cannot stay away long at a time. He may "meet a man," but tbe man will love bis home too well that be will neither be willing to have you visit your aunts and cousins, nor, without a groan, accept an in vitation to tea at your neighbor's. SILENT INFLUENCE. i It is tbe bubbling spring which flows gent ly, the little rivulet which rune along day and night, by the farmhouse, that is useful rather than the swollen flood or warring cataract. Niagara excites our wonder, and we stand amazed at the power and greatness of God there, as he "pours it from the hollow of his hand." But me Niagara ia enough for the continent or the world, while the same world requires ihoustnds and tens of thousands sf silver fountains and gently flawing rivu lets, that water every farm and meadow, and every garden, and tlrat s!yU fiov on every 4uy and every night with tieir gentle quiet bvaiMy. tSo with the act of our lives.

I atl.r.t fraill a I'arifilV .K' - . , . j inquiring by h"em eIlvew wUJ; each other, when tSre even was the almost exclusive topic of those we uief. Until to wards evening the day of the barbecue was j not marked by anything uncommon, though Kiiowu inui mere were sresperate ...ru lutic wem ou unscmei in s tne form. A man by the name or Haley, his two sims one only about cifeen years ola. sod, as I understand, a son-in-law of Haley, and two others whose names I did not learn (six iu all), acted in concert aiding and encouraging each other in some petty broils, which were merely a preparation of worse scenes lo come. " . Whether these six had any special ceuse to quarrel with those afterwards attacked, I could not learn. The elder Haley was armed with a bowie kuife weighing eight pounds, and knives were then, ts in most of these affrays a favorite weapon. Wbisky did its usua! work through the day, and at o o'clock in Ihe afternoon, or "two hours sun," as the phrase is, not a man on the ground, as they said, was sober. Haley was the hero of many a previous battle a desperate nvan, aud feared by all. Towards the close of day, in an ukercatiorr with one whose name I did not learn, Haley struck at his opponent wilh his cleaver-like knife, uvissjd litm and received a severe cut in return- from Ihe bowie knife ot his adversary. A man by lire- name ot 'Moure then ruslsed i owl attempted to part them, and was struck down by Haley with a fatal blow. lis thew encountered man by the name of ones, whw was- too- mnsi wrto.vicut-ed- tw offer much resistance; Jones was cut aMrrosv the aMj men so thai his entrails girshed out. An el'' derly man then interfered, and Iiaicy stab-BwJhim-in lire back. Haley's confederates were shouting amd cheering on- in his savage work. M st were loo drunk to in terfere, and the rest were intimidated, and Haley and his- friends raged round the fit?ld like tigers, chasing aW beltre then. Iii meantime an elder brother of the butchered Jones, who had departed for home bearMijj that his brother was killed, returned and Weill directly up to- Haley, o-d said; "You have killed my brother, have vou!" "Yes," said- Haley with a horrid oath, "a-od I wilt kill you," and raised his unit to strike when Jones a man of great strength though druuk, siezed bis hand and wrenched the lne knife . away, and was aiming a fatal blow, when Haley's two sons, from opposite sides, struck each a bowie knife into Jones' side, aud he fell mortally wounded. Haley then sought out Moure, wbo, with his bowels fallen out, had dragged himself lo the foot f a tree and was suppurtmg himself iu a dying state. The worse than savage ruffian Jheu took up his entrails on the point of bis knife and lowed them, sbout, and when the cvtnir man berred tor uiercv. Ilalev tn.,li him by the hair, bent his head deliberately back, and cut his throat wilh a blow that severed even the spins. Another ol the ' persons bore ibe loss, each one suffering wounded had crawled up a rocky ascent, ! a little; whereas il" no insuran ce had been-' endeavoring to escape when the monsters ! effected, many persons would have suffer seized him and dragged him down the hill ; ed a business ruin, whole ot hers would have by ibe feet, culling him with their knives ; been seriously crippled in their affairs of as they went, until ne was not only dead, 'lile. but, tu use tne phrase of the narrator, " he j " was cut in pieces.
