ANDREW JOHNSON. Women of Lima. ..They are constantly about during the day and evening, in their graceful j costumes. The saya manta, about ! which so much Las been said, is not worn much nowadays, though I oc I casvoaally 6aw it. The women, how i ever, almost universally wear the shawl upon the head, muffling up the face, and sometimes concealing everything j but one eye, which however does more ? than double duty. The ladies seem ! to he inveterate shoppers, and are evn ; dently fond o? gadding about. They ! dress very gaily in rich French silks j and satins, and look in the streets. ! with their shawls drawn over their I heads, as if they had just, stepped out ! of a carriage, and were in time for a nart$\ They are not all so diary of showing their faces; as those 1 saw were exceedingly pretty, I very sagely inferred if there were any ugly women .in Lima, they were among those who j .did not venture to disclose their fea? tures. I iiad a shrewd suspicion that the saya manta was the disguise for old age and departed charms. The women luve wondrously small feet, and they wear prettily embroidered slippers, ?it for fairies to trip io. They are most devout church goers; iar ahead, in this respect, as the women with us, of the opposite sex. They may be seen every morning and even? ing moving towards the churches, of which Lima is full, most coquettishly dressed, in the finest of silk shawls and the glossiest of satin gowns, fol? lowed sometimes by a smartly dressed i negro servant girl, at others by a negro boy in showy livery, carrying a carpet 1 rug of many colors hanging OD the arm, as a fine lady in England, wh . :& righteous as well as rich, may be seen on a Sunday with Yeilowplush at her heels, carrying the golden-leaved prayer-book. If you follow the Lima nese beauty to church, (and you may do 60 without fear of offence, for she, will ogle and coquet with you a9 much as; you please,) you will see the ser - vant spread the rug upon the cold stone pavement and the lady kneel down or lounge alternately upon it as the service may require, always giving you a most inviting look with her pretty black eyes. The women are certainly pretty; their beauty is of a sleepy, voluptu ? ous' kind, and they are undoubtedly intriguing and licentious. They have none of the espi?glerie of the French beauty; though they have bright eyes, the general expression of their faces is heavy and lifeless. The Coiffeur de Paris, at Lima, who cut my hair and trimmed my whiskers, "and had a per? fect bijou of a shop, looking like a Parisian lady's boudoir, and was as talkative as a barber need be, was no believer in the beauties of Lima, but dwelt with infinite satisfaction upon the recollection of the petites femmes de Paris. Ah, exclaimed he, rnptur ously, as he paused from bis work and raked in a fit of enthusiasm, his scis? sors high in the air, 4 Ah, que les gri setles de Paris sont sublimes/' The Limanese women are inveterate smokers. It is no uncommon sight, however startling the fact may appear to those vaporish ladies who would 'die of a rose, in aromatic pain,' not to say anything of the possible effect of the remote odor of au Havana, it is no uncommon sight to see a pretty, delicate-looking Limanese lady, pur? chasing at the open cig;ir booths vigor? ous cigars, such as wou'd stagger the nerves of some of our most robust male smokers. And they smoke them, too; the ladies do not go about the streets smoking, but like knowing smokers take a quiet puff at home, while the more common women may bo constantly seen blow'.ng at enor? mous cigars as they walk about the streets. THE CUP OF TEARS.-There wa3 once a mother and a child, and the mother loved her only child with all the affection of her whole heart, and thought she could not live without it; but the Al mighty sent a great sickness among child ret, which seized this little one, who lay on its sick bed, even unto death. Three day9 and three night-? the mother watched and wept, and prayed by tho side of her Raiding child, but it died. The mother, now left alone in the wide world, ?ave way to the most violent and un? speakable grief, she ate nothing and 3rank nothing, and weptTor th ree long lights without ceasing, calling con ?tautly upon her child. The third 3ight, aa she thus sat overcome with -idle-ring in the place where her cbiI3. lad diea-, her eyes bathed in tears and hint from grief,, the door softly opened, ind the mother started, for before tier ?toed her departed child. It had be tome a heavenly angeL and smiled iweetly as innocence, and was beaut:? ul liks the blessed. It had in its land a small cup that was almost run ring over, so full it was. And tiie diilJ snoke: "O! dearest mother, weep io more for nie; the angel in rnourn ng has,collected in this little cup the ears which you have shed for me. If br me you shed but one tear more it viii overflow, and I shall hive no nore rest in the grave, no joy in leaven! Therefore, 0 dearest, mo: ber! veep no more for your child; for it is /'-ll and happy, add angel? aro it? o m panions. It then vanished. . Tho mother shed no more tear?, hat she might not disturb her child's est in the grave, its joy in Heaven, ."or th<j sake of her infant's happiness, he controlled the anguish of her heart. >o strong and self-sacrificing is a. notb'jr's lo?e.-From the German,.
