This is a branch of female education too much neglected ; it ought to be taught with “French, Italian, and the use of the globes.’’— To be sure, as Mrs. Glass (in her cookery book) most sensibly observes, “first catch the fish,** ! and you mustalso first catch your husband.— But we will suppose him caught—and there fore to be roasted, boiled, stewed, or jugged. All these methods of cooking have their mau rimonial prototypes. The roasted husband is done to death by the fiery temper, the boiled husband dissolves in the warm water of conju gal tears, the stewed husband becomes duc tile by the application of worry, and the jugged husband is fairly subdued ly sauce aud spice. Women have all a natural genius for having their own way. Still the finest talents, like ‘‘the finest pesantry in the world,” require cul tivation. We recommend beginning soon. When Sir William L-was setting ofT on his wedding excursion, while the bride was j subsiding from the pellucid lightness of white satiji and blonde, into the delicate darkness of the black silk travelling dress, the lady’s in iid rushed into his presence with a tor rent, not ul tears, but of words. His favorite French valet had put out all the band boxes that had been previously storred with carri age. Of course, on the happiest day of his life Sir William couki not hint a fault or hesitate dislike,” and he therefore ordered the interest ing exiles to be replaced. “Ver vell,Sare.’’said the gentleman’s prophetic gentleman, you let yoursell be bandboxed all your life.” The prediction cjihe masculine Lassanara of the curling irons was amply fulfilled. Poor Sir William! One of his guests, a gentleman whose wits might have belonged to a feed’s clothier, for they were always wool-gathering confounded the bridal with oneof festivals nhe people cruelly give you joy ofhavmg made one step more to your grave—this said guest at his wedding, literally wished him many happy returns of the day! The polite admirer of the hanboxes found, however, one anniversary quite sufficient without any returns, Now, we do consider it somewhat hard “to drag at each remove’* such a very perceptible chain; it might as well have been wreathed, or gilded, or even pinchbecked. A friend of mine Mrs. S-, does the thing much better. We shall give a domestic dialogue, by way of example to the rising generation; “I have been at Doubiggin’s this morning, my love,” said Mrs. S, while helping the soup; “he has twa such lovely Sevre tables, portrait ofLnuis the Fourteenth’s beauties; you must let me have them for the drawiog-ioom, they re s jch lovers.” “I really do welder,” exclaimed Mr. S„ in his most decided tone, “what canyon want with any thing more in the drawing room. I am sure that it is as much as any one can do to get across the room as it is. t will have no more money spent on such trash.** “The fish is capital, the sauce is a chef d* oeuvre,” exclaimed the lady, hastening to change the discourse; “do let ms recommend it.” Dinner proceeds, enlivened by a little senes of delicate attentions on the part of the wife. One thing is ad vised; another, which she is well aware is her husband’s aversion, play lully forbidden Dinner declines into dessert, and Mr. S. eats his walnuts, peeled ‘•By no hand as you may guess. Bui that of Fairy Fair. alias. Mrs S.’s very pretty finger* Towards the middle of his second class of port, he per ceives that there are tears in his wife’s soft blue eyes—which become actual sobs as he progresses to the third glass. “I see how it i.3, Laura; well, you shall have the tables.” ‘‘The tables!” cried the lady, with an air, as the school boy oaid of ancient Gaul, quar tered into three hal/e3 of disdain, wounded feelings, and tenderness: ‘‘I have really lost all wish for them. It was of you Francis, that I was thinking. Good heavens! can you weigh a few paltry pounds against the plea sure of gratifying your wife? I see I have lost my hold on your affections. What have I done? I. whose whole life has but one happi ness, that of pleasing you?” We will not pursue the subject to its last conjugal close of tears and kisses; suffice it to say that the next day the tables were sent home, not given—but only accepted as a favor FRESH AND DESIRABLE GOODS.
