THURSDAY MORNING. Novr*v*n lSS7' == A HUMAN UAIK FAIR. Wo«EX BrINCISU TBEIR iKESSEiTO MaR _.T _V»rT few of our gentle renders. rr .b» VI* #»er beard of or imagined such a thing as n iluman Hair Fair. As few. jerbaps ever thought of enquiring into the source of the haautiful tresses which arc seen every day in Sosa armories of Venus, the windows of the hairdresser*. We are reminded, however, b« a late French paper, that this is the sea son of the annual hair fair at Morluas, in the Lower Pyrenees, in France. Morlaas. is near tbe city, of Pau, and it is from a Pau journal that we derive some account of tbe iairthe present season. The hair dealers were crowding into the place from all points, from Toulouse, and even from Bordeaux: and the young peasant girls of the neighborhood, famous for their tine and abundant beads ot hair, were flocking to the market like sheep, to be shorn of tbeir locks for the adornment of other and prouder beads. Lven young hatbands accompany tbeir wives, to insist upon their despoiling themselves, for a tn fling oon»ider*»ioD, of Ibeir beuut.ful be.ds of hair. Twenty fr*nee w »be highest price whicb ie given for Ibe richest bead of batr, and a majority of tbe damsels part with their locks for a tenth part of that sum. This singular market is held ip the open Otrcet, and attracts crowds of curious as well oa interested persons. Girls are seen to be sheared in public, while others are waiting their turn, with their caps in their hands, and their long hair combed out and barging down to tbeir waists. The shearers are men II well as women. Some of our lair readers will conclude that this must be a degrading * » 1 4.1_.1.4!. KMne. Join UOW eioo cuum v. »»-r> » and frixettes, and bands, and top pieces, and curls which is needed to prop up *ke totter ing beauty of tbe sex, be supplied/ Ions of black silken hair, sheared in the luacuer above described, from the heads of the peas aot damsels of the south of hrauce, are im ported into this country annually. There are fairs in other places in the aouth of Fraoce and in Brittany, where ad venturers buy up and shear the crops of the fair-haired damsels. At first blush, it wou'd mm that female vanity would effectually prevent such a traffic as this. But cupidity and indolence are stronger passions than van ity; and fashion even lends its aid to this singular custom of parting with the finest ornament to tbe person which nature affords. In Brittany, particularly, where the finest and most silken bair is procured, it is the universal fashion, from childhood upwards, to wear caps so close as completely to conceal th# bair. The peasant girls there have par iieularly fine hair, aod in the greatest atun dince. It is so common as not to he a mark Of beauty; and tbe people are morally incapa ble of appreciating . it as intrinsically beautiful and attractive. It is a truth which ought not to be told, perhaps, in the pretence of all our ladies, that the charming frizetts and tresses which beautify the heads •f our blooming belles, may possibly have been shorn from Breton damsels of very fil thy and loathsome habits.—Posto/i Post. WORK AT HALF PRICE. Labor, in many branches of business, can not now be profitable employed, on account of the scarcity of capital: but if the cost of labor should be materially reduced, capital wight be agaio brought out for employment In industrial pursuits. As begging is prefer able to starvation, so labor though poorly re quited, would be better than pauperism. If there are men who would volunteer to engage at their usual avocations at half the usual Wages, while tbe present state of things continues, and if they would positively announce that their labor was io the market nt eocb rates, it is more than probable that builders, manufacturers, Ac., would make tbe moot strenuous endeavors to take advantage of so favorable a circumstance. Capital would be found, especially for completion of unfinished holdings, and other similar enter prises. Money would again flow in the usu al channels of circulation, and relief begin to be felt among tbe working classes, and by our charitable and eleemosynary institutions. —Journal oj Comment. plaiiTtrutil Someone who seems to understand the •object describes tbe education of “young gentlemen and ladies,’ of the world-be-iusb lonable sort, which tends only to mental weakness and physical decay, as follows: 4*A young gentleman—a smooth-faced strip ping—with little breeding and less sense, ripens fast, and believes himself a nice young ana.
