Hints to People of Moderate Fortune .—The pre vailing evil of the present day, is extravagance. 1 know Very well that the old are too prone to preach about mod ern degeneracy, whether they have cause or not ; but laugh as we may at the sage advice of our fathers, it is too plain, that our prosent expensive habits are pro ductive of,much domestic unhappiness, and injurions to public prosperity. However it is not to the rich I would speak. They have an undoubted right to spend their thousands as they please ; and if they spend them ridiculously, it is consoling to reflect that they must, in some way or other, benefit the poojer clas ses. People of moderate fortunes, have likewise an unquestioned right to dispose of their hundreds as they please ; but I would ask, is it wise to risk your happi ness in a foolish attempt to keep up with the opulent ? Of what use is the effort which takes up so much of your time, and all of your income ? Nay, if any un expected change in affairs, should deprive you of a few yearly hundreds, yog will find your expènses have exceeded your income—thus the foundation of an accu mulating debt will be laid, and your family Will have formed habits but poorly calculated to save you from the threatened ruin. Not one valuable friend will be gained by living beyond your means, and old age will be left to comparative if not to utter poverty. There is nothing in which the extravagance of the present day strikes me so forcibly, as the manner in which our young people of moderate fortune furnish their houses. A few weeks since, I called upon a farmer's daugh ter, who had lately married a young physician of mod erate talents and destitute of fortune. Hecfather had given her at her marriage, all he ever expected to give her, viz. two thousand dollars. Yet the lower part of her house was furnished with as much splendor as wc usually find among the wealthiest. The whole two thousand had been expended upon Brussels carpets, Alabaster vases, Mahogany chairs, and Marble tables, i afterwards learned that the more useful household utensils had been forgotten : and that a few weeks after her wedding, she was actually obliged to apply to her husband for money to purchase baskets, iron spoons, clothes lines, &.C. and her husband more ir ritable by the want Of money, pettishly demanded, why she had bought so many things they did not Did the Doctor gain any patients, or she, 6 single friend, by offering their visiters, water in richly cut glass tumblers, or serving them with costly damask napkins, instead of plain soft towels? No, their foolish vanity made them less happy, and no more respectable. Had the young lady been content with Kiddermins ter carpets and tasteful vases of her own making, she might have put one thousand dollars at interest at six per cent. It would have clothed her as well as the wife of any man, who depends merely upon his own industry, ought to be clothed. This would have sav ed much domestic disquiet ; for after all, human na ture is human nature, and a wife is never better belov ed, because she teax.es for money. want. ■jt MERY, of a superior quality, and of all sizes, imported JEi from London by B.
