“PUTTING TO R'GliTS.”
Is any one fond of variety? .‘>t him marry—4
speak it oracularly, and in f«il defiance of the
generally received opinion of the dull monotony
of the marriage life. I affirmit to be neither dull
nor monotonous; but on the contrary, a source of
infinite variety, and as such I r#n recommend it
—though to say the truth, were I obliged to write
my schoolcopies over again, it krould go against
my conscience to say that *• Variety'is char
ming!”
The fact is, I am a literary man, and get my
living by mv pen. I am a hogtehold drudge to
editois of magazines, bonksellova, and gentlemen
who wish to have a literary reputation, without
the trouble ol writing books. You may there
fore suppose, that quietude aid domestic com
fort is essential to my success. Now my wife
does not think so, or at least her ideas of domes
tic comfort differ so materially from mine, as to
render it much the same thing, She is never
happy but when the house it a perfect chaos with
scouring, dusting, and above pit, “ putting to
rights.” She would berirlsghtcd ifatrpopof sol
diers were quartered on her for the pleasure of
putting things “ to rights” afterwards If she
walked in h*-r sleep, it would be with a duster in
her hand.-—If she weic ever tempted to purloin,
it would be yellow soap. The very paint on mv
doors and wainscot is given w*y in picturesque
streaks to the original deal by repeated scour
ing—anil there is mure bread consumed in rub
bing the paper on my parlour walls than would
feed my family.
It will be tubbed olf soon. I have not a chair
or a table in my house but what is ricketty with
continued polishing;—that is what my wife calls
•• uthing ctne 01 me furniture. nut on: mat
“ putting to rights.” Papi r, paints, chair* and
tables, might all go, if I cotid be spared that hor
n»r. If I die, the verdict of the coroner’s jury
will surely be, died of “putting to rights.”
1 1 have a good si/.ed table t«* myself—a writing
table—on this is spread my various notes and
papers, whether preparing an article for the
; magazine, correcting » manuscript for n publish
er, nr writing a book foi «n author. To an or
dinary eve every tiling may appear in confusion
there, but to me it is in perfect order. I can
- place my finger upon every tiling I want. But
j no; that will not do lor iny wile. Things mud
! be “ pnt to rights.” The moment my back is
j turned, therefore, the process commences. The
I table is rubbed and polished lilt the joints creak
! again—the drawers are all turned topsy-turvy,
and the papers bundled up and crammed awav in
places where it will take me a month to find
them again.
Never ►Inll ! forget the hubbub, we were in
for a whole week, when the child exhibited
symptoms of a Ilea bite The house was scrub
bed from garret to ccilur, blankets were scoured,
carpets beat, windows and doors open day and
night, until she caught—a violent cold, anti I—
the rheumatism Bu4 in order that you may
have a more vivid sense of my enjoyments, 1
will give you mv diary for a day.
March iJ.—llose at 8 o’clock—very cold, a
little snow upon the ground—my wife rises an
hour earlier, she, carfful creature, is determined
the servant shall have no opportunity for making
tea and toast for the policeman—got out of bed
on to the cold floor—my wife says, that carpets
harbor dust, and not healthful in bed rooms—
shave with cold water, teeth chattering with
cold, and cut myself—can’t get hot water, my
wife says cold water’s bracing.
Come down at last, stiff as an icicle, and blue
as the cholera—find winduws and doors all wide
.... .... ...if. ..... . .,..1 I ti.m tilnt«/l Knliou

makes things sweet and w holesome, and keeps
dust from settling! —find a little green smoke in
stead of tire, struggling through a host of cinders
—walk briskly up and down the room blowing
my fingers—no signs of breakfast, can’t get the
kettle to boil—servant employed in the interim
whitening the d»or steps; street tloor open, of
course, a cutting north-east wind finding its way
into one’s very marrow. Enter, at last, a bright
tea kettle, placed at a respectable distance from
the green smoke—bit of bread signed here and
there, and called toast—tea made with lukewarm
water, belter that lea should he W'-ak, than the
the bright tea kettle he blai keii so ii»v wife says
—try in vain to get on my boots,find a scrubbing
brush in one, and a duster in the o*he».
About It o'clock find my way not, and toil all
dav among publishers, edftois, &c. without suc
cess, return hungry and dispirited, hoping, though
with some misgiving, to find comfort at home
turn the corner of the street where I live and
view with dismay a volume of dust the downy re
sidue of bed-room sweepings, and tea leaves fly
ing with the velocity of light, through the street
door of my domicile—not my house on fire, and
a dozen engines playing upon it, could convey to
mv senses a more appalmg image—heard half a
dozen miserable children in the street, sijualling
“Home, sweet home, there's no place like home,”
—joined in the chorus. My mind made up to
■ the worst, by the sight of the airing process, I
rush onwards and knock at the door. 1 hey know
my knock inaide, and therefore in no hurry to
come—cutting north-east wind with sleet—the
door opened at last, and back door, being of
course wide open, am saluted with a blast of
wind, storm? enough to spring the fore topmast
of a man of war—in? hat flies into the middle of
the street—striving "to save it, my umbrella goes
after it—and I, struggling for my footing, am co
vered in a twinkling with a cloud of feathers,
Just, and tea leaves, the contents of a dust pan
at the foot of the stairs!
Regain my equilibrium together with mv bea
ver and umbrella, though wuh infinite difficulty
—not so my temper. Enter roy parlor—what
am I doomed to behold—Is it an auction room,
or a place distressed for rent?—Is it a marine
store shop, or a Jew's exchange?—Chairs and ta
bles piled up in the centre of the room—carpets
turned up all round—the flooring just scoured—
windows and doors all open, of course—fire rak
ed out and grate Slack leaded—hearth rug cover
ing the chairs—fender and fire irons upon my
writing table,* and my papers—where! dusted
and * put to rights!’—* put to rights.’ Oh! what
retrospective agonies does not that most expres
sive of horrors conjure up! to those who have
suffered under the discipline embraqpd in that
detestable phrase it is needless to expatiate, to
those who have no!, no words can convey an ade
quite m ailing. To sum up—nothing in the house
to eat, and no fire to cook any thing, not a chair
to rest myself upon—not a room fit to go into—
hunger and and ague staring me in the face.—Re
ceive a note from Hie tax-gatherer demanding im
mediate pavment—recollected having paid him,
and having stuck the m**m. behind the chimney
glass, look for it, and find it gone! burnt or
blown out of the window!—Boy waiting forar
! tide for magazine, faithfully promised by the
10th—papers all dusted and carefully * put to
' rights,’ consequently impossible to be found!—
; Wife scolding-child screaming—servant crying
; —and I in an agony of rage and mnrtifica
, tion, rush out of the house, intending to take a
' passage for the Swan River, or New Zealand! —
: Think better of it, rather starve at home than be
eaten up by the savages, so return to my yoke.*
