lately "Inken in and tlona for," in u pro

WHOM bllAI.I. WE l A It II VI
Such is ihe title of a spatVllng yet
sensibly written article in tho Notem.
lwr number of Harper's Magaxlnc,
from which we select ihn following pai
sagrs. It Is attributeJ to the pen of
Dr, llobert Tomes, of New York, city,
one of the Uesl contributors to our fri
odical literature. From tho tenor of
the eay, it Is clearly Ihe production of
oca woku.i Ttti.ia rntik arionT 1.1
The beauty of American women we
consider an established fact j a fad of
which none seem more councious than
themselves. The Grand Mocul was In
tho habit, as we are told by some of the
old travelers, to take his weight annu
ally. Mis Oriental Majesty would
place himself on one side of Ilia balance,
and pour in diamonds nnd rubies in the
scale of tho other, anj thus, year after
year, estimated hit vnlue. Our calcu
lating country-women follow Ino firand
Mogul's wise example. They nro no
sooncr'rcady Torn market than they step
Into the imaginary scale, nnd balance
themselves with gold. There is not a
smile but is estimated nt n fixed prico,
by Ihe ready rocloner ; nnd ns for virgin
blushes, Ihoy, according to their rarity,
are set down nt a sum only to be encom
passed by the accumulative imagination
of a Wnll street financier, A pretty
woman between. .fifteen and twenty, Is
held at so enormous n price, that ilono.
but tho lucky heir of n fortune, or the
millionaire, grown luxurious in old age,
who has consumed the whole of youth
nnd the better part of mnnhood in amass
lug his milliorn, can hazard a bid. And
It is tho latter who, oflencr engngi-d in
this matrimoninl trade, generally smacks
his dry lips over thu pj.session of pur
chased beauty In it youth and tender
ness. The young heir of fortune is
more transitory in his enjoyments, nnd
looks only lo matrimony as a retreat for
tired lifu in the future.
A man of wenllh, ponesscil say of
three or four hundred Ihoiitand dollars,
marries his daughter. He has curly
inculcated her, by precept and exnmplu
wllli a reverence lor lliu Idol of his wor
ship! ho decks her with thu gew-gaws
of fii'hion, he accustoms her to the hab
its of expensive expenditure ; he, with
youth o la mode, laboriously unfit lier
for a useful life, by furuihing the chum
bcrs of her mind with tho lawdry furni
lure of fashion, where substantial know
ledge and plain common sense nro never
guests. The spoiled maiden, though
lair to outward show, is married. There
never wns a prettier bride more ricnly
attired. Her veil from Paris ; her rube
of the glossiest nnd thickest white satin,
her diamonds, a present, probably, from
her betrothed; her trotteau, with its
treasure of silk, fine linen, nnd genuine
Ince; the wealth of presents mostly con
tributions of friend nnd relatives; the
jewels nnd plate, the goldeii-lenved nnd
heavily clasped Bible, from " her affec
tionate father, with the blessing of God,"
nnd delicately exposed to stimulate the
emulation of rival donors, nnd become
tlit? talk of the town for n week, l'apn
resigns his daughter with n kiss, hands
n check, perhaps for a thousand dollars,
perhnps for two or three, lo his son-iu-law,
with tho express understanding
that it is lo be laid out In rote-wood and
ilainmk. The reapecluhle parent now
'buttons hi pockets, congratulating him
,aelf that ono of hi faaily ii off his
ihnnds, and hi current cxpennes dimin
ished by n thousand dollars icr annum.
The shrewd tradesman never made a
seller bargain in all his widu experience
1 l'earl street, Uy a small investment
0 sates the annual interest of some rif
fen or twenty thousand. A splendid
.-aiiuiclion n hlch docs credit to lliu head
Yf the knowing calculator, nnd is Ihe
jcry best disposition he could have
Bade of hit daughter, lo Ihe advunlago
Q himself. The practice of marrying
Cjiildreii without dowries bejfan In this
ij.uniiy alien tlsnliier and largo lor
lines were scarce, and it has been con.
tjjucd until now, when both are com
kralively abundant. When habits of

THE FAST VOUNO LADT.
The fast young lady is one of the do
vclopement of female beauty. Young
nnd hnndiome elm Is, of course, and
brimful of vitality. Daring and dash
ing, she doe n thousand extravagant
things ; but youth and beauty lend such
a grace lo nil she does, Ihnt tvu nic at
tracted more than is quite right for our
propriety to acknowledge. From Ihe
very first sho is veiled by no mntden
blushes, and checked by no coy shyness,
bul boldly faces the world nnd rushes
into it embrace. She becomes known
every where; she is nt every ball oflhe
iHie"fs"ns'iamTfiiir toTho" frequenter!, of
liroadwny ns the Astor House. Her
reckless doing are on every tongue ;
how she wns nt six parlies in ono night ;
how she kissed young Dalliance in the
ball-room, out-drunk him in champagne,
nt Ihe supper table, nnd smoked one of
his cigars on her wny home. Sho is
indefatigahlo In her coquetry; while
revolving in the arms of ono beau, she
will illuminate another by her bright
glance ; her hand will return Ihe warm
pressure of n devoted ndmircr, while
her little foot is busy in its little confi
dences Willi his rival. In Iho race of
fashion our fast young lady is always
abend. I red the prcvnil'ng color, she
will flame in scarlet; if it is permitted
lo display Ihe shoulders, the will reveal
thu wnitt. Her daring spirit is ulwnyg
