,, Under th\a. head we are impressed to say
-MUr* words to the l'adles, the marriageable
girls especially. We do this 'privately and
confidentially,' and request all young gen
t\ emeu to' have the politeness not to read
this article? It is for the girls exclusively.
"Well, then, girls, you expect to get mar
ried, do you not? If you do not you should.
You also wish to marry, don't you? If yon
do not, you are either more or less than
woman. Presuming you are'all right on
this matter, wo will call your attention to
the following extract:
A wife looks prettier, if she did but know
it, in her n«at morning frock ofcalico, than
io the incongruous piles of finery which she
dignifioiwith the title of full-dress. Many
an unmarried female flrat wins tho heart of
her future husband in some simple, unpre
tending attire, which, if consulted about,
fill 9 Would pronounce too cheap except for
oraloary wear, but which, by its accidental
suitability to her figure, face and carriage,
i idolize her youth wonderfully. If the sex
would study tasto in dress more, and care
less for costliness, they would havo no reason
to regret it.
Uow we assure one and all—the unmar
ried of the fair sex—that we have known
many females, who really wished to marry,
to live in single blessedness and die lius
bandless, for no other reason, iu all human
probability, than that of dressing too gaud
ily. We have heard the sentiments of the
male sex expressed a thousand times on this
point, and in every instance, whether the
observer was young or old, young man,
bachelor, or widower, rich or poor, ugly or
handsome, wise man, fop, or dandy, in every
instance an over dressed or expensively
(riggfd
out' female has lost taste in his es­
timation.
This is perfectly natural and proper. A
foolish and silly man is not worth marrying,
and a sensible man will surely judge you
advantageously in exact ratio to the plain
ness and simplicity of your dress.
A poor man, or a man in moderate cir
cumstanoes, however worthy and deserving,
dare not marry a female who is superflu
ously done up in ribbons and flounces, how
over lovely and talented she may be, be
cause lie has sense enough to suspect she
will be an expensive treasure. He may
love her, and still feel that he canuot all'ord
to marry her.
And the rich man, though he likes her
personally, and admires her other accom
plishments, dare not take her for better or
worse, because the dashing style of her ha
biliments indicate too great a passion for the
admiration of the world. He fears, justly
too, that her passion for general admiration
will be a serious obstacle in the way of the
manifestation of affection for him individ
ually. And as all men are selfish, whether
women are or not, both rich and poor, in
selecting a wife, act on the principle, that,
"JJeuuty, unadorned, is adorned
the
New
most'."
Life Illustrated.
Theory.—A
writer in the National
Intelligencer is advocating the theory that
the moon is simply an indicator of the earths
electric changes—and that tho moon itself
has no appreciable effect upon the planet—
that the moon is a fragment of the earth, is
negative to it, and revolves upon its own
axis within the earth's atraos here that
the earth is enveloped in an ocean of el c
tric vapor, dense and compound on its solid
surface, whose gasses separate, ho*vever, as
they deepen outward, the rare always ema
nating from and resting on the more dense,
until we reach in outward order Flourine,
electricity and magnetism, that subtle ele
ment pervadingall space and that observ
ing the various atmospheric 6trata above
and the solid above us, it is not difficult
to perceive that men, animals and vegetable
forms are existing in the centre of the earth's
Gratification. The electric lines of no va
riations are those extending from the north
to the south pole the dia-mnguetic or dia
electric lines are those extending around the
earth from west to east, and ever variable,
is the variableness of those dia-electric
fturrents, says this writer, that produces all
ihe phenomena attributed to the influence
of the moon upon the earth.
Cunning of the Fox.—The Dumfries
(Scotland) Courier says a gentleman in the
Highlands send the editor of that paper the
following note:
A gamekeeper on the estate near Lochawe,
who had been annoyed by the depredations
of foxes, discovered a kennel in a glen at the
aide of a small loch. "While watching one
..evening for the appearance of the tenants he
observed a brace of wild ducks floating on
the loch. In a little while a fox as seen
^approaching the water-side with cautious
fcteps on reaching it he picked up a bunolx
of heather and placed it in his mouth, so as
to cover his head then slipping into the
water and immersing all but his nose, ho
floated slowly and quietly down to where
the birds-were quacking out delight in fan
cied security, seeing nothing near them but
a bunch of weed. In due time he neared the
ducks, dropped the heather and seized a
.tluck, with which he returned to the locli
pide, and was making oft' to his young .with
the prize, when the keeper who had noted
fell his movements, closed them by the dis
charge of his double barrel. Surely such
sagacity deserved a better fate.
Hints for tiie Season.—To expel ffies
from your room, hang walnut leaves on the
frails and eellmg.
The weed known as the "water pepper"
or "smart-weed," (polygonum hydroj'iper,)
•which may cow be found in abundance
along the ditches, roads, lanes and barn
yards, is an effectual and certain destroyer
Jbf the bed-bug. A strong decoction is made
if the herb, and the pla:es infested with the
|jnsect well washed with it. The plant may
also, with much advantage, be stuffed in the
cracks and corners of the room.
The best preventive for attacks of coup de
foliel, or sun-stroke, is a coarse palm-leaf
jjtat with either a moist sponge or a thick
»at of cotton in the top.
y Elderberry leaves, laid upon the shelves
a -srtfe or cupboard, will drive away ants
%nd roaches.
A very intelligible definition of transcen
entalism is giveu by one who, we think is
im9elf a transcendentalism It is, he tells
us, the spiritual cognoscencc of psychologi
cal irrefragibilitv connected with conontient
ademption of inoolumnient spirituality and
flherealized contention of eubsultory con
jlretion.
An eminent lawyer belonging to the New
work bar g'ves a better though less 'hifalu—
•Ifo' idea of the word than this. Transcen
dentalism. he says, is two holes in a, sand
•bank—a storm washes away the sand-bauk
without disturbing the holes.

Remabkable Application of Scrip
ture.—A correspondent of the Syracuse
Journal, of June
I2th says
"A paragraph in the Journal of yester
day, headed "Proofs of Holy Writ,'' re»
minds me of an incident connected with
the execution of Rev. Dr. I)odd, who was
hung in England for forgery several years
ago. He was an active and successful
preacher, but in an hour of pressing pe
cuniary embarrassment, he signed the
name of a friend as endorser of a draft,
intending to pay the bill himself at ma
turity. The fraud was discovered an:!
according to the stern law of that period
he was condemned
to
die.
His enemies
exulted over his downfall,
and as he was passing to his execution, a
woman more bitter than the res), pressed
forward and tauntingly said"Where now
is the Lord thy (iod?"
Dr. Dodd
quietly turned and bade the
woman go home and read Micah 7ih chaps
ter, 8th, 9th and 10th. verses.
She did
so and immediately hung her
self.
The following is the quotation:
"Rejoice not against me,0 mine enemy:
When I full I shall arise when I sit in
darkness, the Lord shall be a. light unto
me.
I will bear the indignation of the Lord
because I have sinned against him, Tiniil
he plead my cause and executed judgment
for me: he will bring me forth to the light
and I shall behold his righteousness.
Then she that is mine enemy shall see
it and shame shall cover her which said
unto me—'Where is
the Lord thy God?'
Mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she
be trodden down
streets."

LirE^s t^fTiES.—ft rfftrst, undoubtedly,
be the design of our gracious God that all
this toil for the supply of our physical
necessities this incessant occupation
among things that perish—shall be no
obstruc'ion to our spiiitual life. The
weights of a clock seem a heavy drag on
the delicate movements of its machinery
but so far from arresting or impeding
those movements,
it is indispensable
with
to
their steadiness, balance, accurary. There
roust some analogous action of what seems
to
clog and drag weight of wordly work
on the finer movement of man's spiritual
being. The planets in the heavens have a
two-fold motion— in their orbits and on
their axis the one not interfering. but
carried on simultaneously! and in perfect
harmony with the other so must it be
that man's two«fold acHvites rcund the
heavenly and earthly center disturb
not,
nor jar
each other. He who dili­
gently discharges (lie duties of the earthly,
may-not less sedulously—nay, at the same
moment—fulfill those of the heavenly
sphere
