Probably it first arose from such phratos as 'Lord A. IJ. and Lady,' much as one of ten spoiiksof a king and 'his queon.' But 'lady 'femalo,' or 'young person,' havo pretty near ly driven out tho plain word 'woman,' which, by tho light of oaturo, we should have thought noodod a ouphemistio substitute very much less than M'umalo.' That tbe word 'lady' is much misused is vory certain but the fact that a word hus been used out of its prnpor meaning is no argument agaiiiBt its Irgitimato use. 'Lady' is a good old Saxon word.originally signifying a bccovolent woman and It- bas never becu used as an equivalent for 'wo man.' The latter term, which may justly bo regnrdod as indolicato in its primitive sig nification, is universally understood to moan tbe fomaie of the hemen species, while tbo formor one in its proper ioubo indicates a woman of refined manners and correct do portraenr. Tbore it a manifest -necessity in civilized society for a word which shall distinguish tbo docorously-bobaved woman fiom tbe uncouth and vulgar one, as well as ono wbicteshall make a distinction botwoon the woll-mannerod female and the sex in gon eral. Unless a better word than 'lady' can be found, we tee no propriety in making war upon it. 'Gentleman' it quite at much misused j but, if any ono bo under tbo im pression that it has no well defined signifi cation, lot him intimate to tome muscular man '.bat the lattor is no 'gentlewaq and he may have cogent reasons forabandouing bis opinion."

Of a certain divine an anecdote it to!d, which Hook used to tny exceeded any specimen of cool assurance thai ever be had seen exhibited. . A young clerical friend of his Haying at a friend house, happened to be silling op one night.read ing, afier the family, as he supposed, had retired to rest. The door opened, and hia excellent host re-appeared in Lis dressinit-cown and slippers. "My dear toy," said the latter, sealing himself, and looking pathetically, at his guest, "I havo a fw words to say don't look utarmeu, mey win prove uyiecnum enough lo you, rtly upon it. The fact is, Mrt. and myself have.fcr somu time, observed (he attention which you have pnid (o Betsey. We can mRke every al lowance, knowing your excellent princi ples as we do, tor the diffidence which has hitherto tied your tongue, but it hat been carried fnr enough. . Ia a worldly poiut of view.Eclsey of course might do belter, yet all have tho highest esteem (or your character and disposition, and then our daughter, she is very dear lo us, aud, when her happiness is at slule, all minor considerations most give way.

Whnt B.ust b. must be t vou are a worthv fel- low, end, therefore, at a wordt you havcl our free and cordial consent. Uoly make our child happy, and we ask no more." The astonished divine, half petrified, hud down his book. "Mv dear sir," he bnn lo murmur, "here is some drer.dful mistcke. I really never thought, that is, I . never in tended" "No, no, I know you did not. Your modesty, indeed, ia one of those Units whi:h have made you. so deservedly a fa vorite with us all. "But, my dear boy, a parent's eyes are ennry. Anxielv sharpens them We saw well enough what you thought so well concealed. Betsey, too, is just the girl to bo so won.

Thus saying, the considerato papa he stowed a most, affectionate kiss upon his daughter, who was at this juncture led in'.o me room oy tier molber, both en- dishabille, shook hia future son-in-law cordially by the hand, and with a "There go, go along, Mrs.," turned his wife out of the room, and left the lovers? lo their tete-a-tete.

Mcmoriet of Book. Another Straw from England. The uprising of the peoplo of England in favor of (he American Union, and their approval of the determination of the loyal States to put down the rebellion, no mat ter what the cost, may explain some re cent movements on the part of ihe British government, and some changes in even the most rabid of the British presses. Tbe withdrawal of the consul from Charleston, and the order of the Alabama out of two West India ports, within a few weeks past, the universal condemnation of the Lord Mayor of London for inviting a refugee rebel to en official feast, are straws, perhaps, but tbey show which way tbe wind is now setting. The follow ing extract f:om the London Timet is an other straw worth noticing 1 "Between North and South there is this moment raging a controversy which goes as deep as any other controversy can into the elementary principles of human nature, and tho sympathies and antipa thies which, io so many men, supply the place of reason and retlection. The North is for freedom, and the SotrPt is for slavery. The Notth is for freedom of discussion, the South represses freedom of discussion with the tar-brush and pine faggot. The South bas become enamored ol her shame. Free labor denounced as degrading and disgraceful. The honest triumphs of the poor man who wotks his way toindepeouencare treated with scorn and contempt." Human Remains discovered at Pompeii. Calignani publishes the following curi ous story: "A vory interesting discovory bas lately been in ado by M. Florolli, the ioBpcotor of tbe excavations at Potupoii. While digging at a depth of from eight to ton foot the pick axe struck into a littlo mass of coin and juw- els. M. Florolli them continued tbo excava tion with tbo greatest care, removing tbe earth grain by grain, aud, after SQme hours labor, was rewarded by tbo discovery in tbe hardened ashos of tbo -porfoct mould of man in a lying posture, tbe skin of whom bad dried up, but tho skoleton remained in tact. M. Florolli causod piaster of Parss to bo poured into tbe form of tbe Pompeian, and tbe casting succeeded perfectly, with the exception of two fragments of an arm and tog, whero the mould was incomplete. The cast of tbe man it of tbe greatest pre cision; the moustache, the bair, the folds of tbe dress, and tho sandals, are admirably defined. Tbe famous question of the The saurum of Grouovius and Grevitus is now deoidedi the Romans did wear drawers. Aleoarohecologists will be dolighted aldis covering tbe manner in wbicb the ancients fastened their sandals, and at seeing the boel of a shoe completely protected witb Iron." Self-rbsfbct Is tbe ballast of our life-ship. Without It. lot the craft be what she will, tbo it but fine io-CQffiu at (be best.

Two Insurrections. a Two Insurrections now couipol tho atten tion of tho world that of tbo Folos in Europo, and that of tne slaveholders in Amorica. It it Instructive to notice bow the sympathies of men who favor the one are set against the other. Thus Garibaldi, Victor Hugo, and all tho English and Froucb Liboriuls, aro friends of tho Union, and hopo for tho dofoat of tho American Insur rection ; but, tbo raomoat tho Polos rise, theso same mori, who pray for tho success of the governmont bore, work for tbo 'rio tory of tho insurrectionists there. So, on tbe othor band, tho nobles and aristocrats, who have been, for tho most part, on tbo tido of our insurrectionists, aro the same moasure against tho insureont Polos. Thus, tbey who havo in Europe most loudly aod constantly defeodod- to right rovolutlon, condemn our revolutionist! whiU they who have always and most fierce ly denied the right of revolution, couuto nance it in America, What then ?

A new Territory has been added in that quarter, under the musical and appropriate name of Montana. Mon tana comprises a Western part of what is now the Territory of Nebraska, and in cludes the famous Salmon River cold mines. It contains about eleven thousand people, mostly miners, wbo have flocked there within the past two years. The country is mountainous, rich in minerals, and has many fine fertile valleys. The facilities for reaching Montana are (o be much improved. Roads are being opened to the Salmon River mines from Salt Lake City, and a steamboat is being built on tbe Missouri river above Fort Benton, to navigate tbat.river above the Falls. This will give waier communica tion to within about seventy miles of Eastern mines. The principal town the head waters of the Missouri, is Ban- noch City, which, on the 1st of September, contained about fifty men, and the 1st December following, about one thoussnd, and some two hundred houses, and "many going up every day." So writes Mr. .oiler from liannocb Uity, Dec. 7th, 1862, to Ihe Omaha Republican. "looks for a large emigration in the Spring." He gives a favorable report the country, especially of the gold pros pects, and says "tbe mines are paying very well : there are also some very rich quartz lodes."

No ono greeted him upon his en trance, though his uneasiness of mannor showed that he oxpectod respect, if not adu lation. Not a singto salutation, cillior by bow ing, by an offer of hands, or any other token of recognition was given. Tho tremulous mo tion of hands and bond showed that ago was laying its hands boavily upon him. Soventy five years was superinducing tho dnbiltty which precedes paralysis.

L "copperhead," according to the Amort cab Cyclopedia, is a "venomous serpent tho bead is thick tho neck contracted, and its scales smooth ; there are no rattles, tbo tail beiug short near the flanks are rounded dark blotches It prefers dark and moist plscos; It gives no warning of its proximi ty foods on mice, small birds, etc', and sol dots atlacks man it is slow and clumsy In its motions, and a very slight blow suffices to kill It. It is also called 'cbunk-boad,' and 'deaf-adder.' " It cannot be denied tbat Ihe analogy bo rwooo this losthsome creature and tbo moan, sneaking politicians who aro oow distracting tho Northorn mind witb crios of peaco, is quite striking. Like tbe copperhead, too peaco party are "venomous" in thoir at tacks on the nation ; Iiko It, their "head" U undoubtedly "thick j like It, thoir "nock" and roach are "contracted." Thoir "scales," too, are "smooth," and tbey hove no "rat tles" to warn tbo honest traveler of their approach. Like the copperhead, thoir coar- actor is "stained by dark blotches, and, Iiko It, they "profer dark places" to tho light of day. Like tbat sneaking reptile, their prey it small, feeble creatures, ana they "seldom venture to attack s man. If we add tbat our political copperheads, like their roptile typo, are so "slew and clumsy in their motions" tbat tbey do- , serve tbe additional cognomina ot "cnunx- beads" and "Deaf-addon," and tbat "a very slight blow" makes an end of them, we shall have made tho analogy complete It is ereditnblo to tbe discernment of our Western follow-eitizens tbat they so quickly realised tbe semblance between tho eoppor head make and tbe peace politician, and baptised tbem by one common appellation. .We shall not waste time In arguing with tbo Copperheads, Men wbo are capable of justifying the rebels and espousing their cause, wbon tbe blood of somo member ot.ai most every Northern family reddens South ern toil, and lho,bonoa of Northern soldiers are worn at ornaments, by Southern women. are not likely to be convinced by argument. or to be pervious te aaytbiog short of a bay onet thrust. ...

If Mr. Valiandigham, or any of -bit fellow copper heads, will visit any largo camp of loyal troops, eitbor in tbo East, or in theVest.or in the South, and will, in presence of Ibe soldiers, express tbo sontiments tboy .have uttered at Nowark, Now York, and else where; and If, without tbo-piotootion of the generals or provost marshals, whom tboy so heartily abuse, tbey succeeded, after deliv ering their speocb, in making their esctpo alive, and withont a coal of tar and foathors, we shall agree that Copperheads may fairly be toloratod.
