Dame Fashion— Am Allegory*
After partaking of a bountiful repast,
I proceeded into my study, drew iny
♦ rsv-chnir to the fire, and soon fell into
a doze. Anti, as 1 slept, I dreamed
somewhat in this wise:—
1 was in a large square or open place,
filled with a variety of people of differ
ent habits and characters, eagerly intent
upon their own pleasures, fhere was,
in the center, high above the rdrmi i g
muhitu-b , their Queen, Fashion, under
a got cano] .
were her subjects, arranged in their sev
eral clans or families. Those nearest
her, and most devoted in their attend
ance, w ere a gay, volatile people, tend
of nn;s : c an I dancing, and dx-.iign -Led

But I perceived by the increased com
motion :i;d the center of attraction,
that a great ]>r< i.et was on foot, surpas
sing all pre ceding ones in magnitude and
importance. The mystery was soon
solved, f r upon tk« pnrtin’ly clearing

of Hoops. What a transformation!

prising nw.nufacturcrs enriched them
selves in supplying the demand. INor
were the essential mate; lais limited, but
brass, steed, rope, reeds, whalebone, ete.,
were consum i in immense quantities.
Pressing f« rward to obtain a bettet
view of the scene, I was stopped by a
shrill voice exclaiming: “Stupid, you
r.re breaking my Loop!'’ which so start
led me that I awoke. The strange vis
ion Lad vanished; ami, instead of the
xcluptu us Queen and her obedient sub-
Ity, I was

number of Peterson’s luagnzine on the
table, open at one of the beautifully-col
ored fashion-plates. Irene.
I'he Scott, Dec. 21, 1801.
A p litician who had struck pretty
high at first, but who failed of success at
evert point, found himself, a little tune
smef, veiv hmd pushed for cash, and
was f und by the Administration to be
not orJv a very seedy individual, but r.
verv great bore. The President endured
until he could endure no longer. One
day, ns a cabinet meeting was about to
break up, th? President called his Secre
taries to attend to one thing more.
••Gentlemen,” quoth he, “something
must be done for this man Johnson. He
ain’t got money enough to get himself
cut of town with, and if he had ho
wouldn’t go—unless the rebols began to
shed the place. He's got to bo main
tained smnehi’.v: ’.ow what d’v’e f.av ?”
Mr. Seward shook Lis head. Mr. Chase
L.*ul nothing. Mr. Blair had long since
di: jxwod of the subject. Mr. Smith had
no employment; and so everybody turned
tn ti c War Secretary for an answer to
the President’s question. “Well,” said
Mr. Cameron, “ I don’t see but wo will
Lave to take the usual course. I’ll make
him r. paymaster’’’
I happened onco to sec a soldier’s
L-art. It yyns in the quiet hour of even
tide, v.hkh unbends men’s rugged na
tures ns they nrc mdemt when shades of
dea’.h draw nigh. The soldier told me
of Lis home, bis wife, bls balics—but
there was one fair-haired child just open
ing into womanhood, of whom he spoke
n« tenderiv as a woman. 3 hat soldier
fell in l atth*, and he sleeps to-day, un
mindful of tLe din and strife around his
narrow bed. Since that day when I saw
the s•! Lei’s heart, 1 understand what

The Rural Cemetery.
How' admirable is the sentiment that
often places the Rural Cemetery within
of ail the agencies of our new civ
ilization. Walking among its silent
graves, you can almost hear the hum of
the machinery that crowds the adjacent
stream; the meadows are sown and har
vested beneath your eye; the spires and
roofs of the city gleam in the distance, or
■ the village streets are vocal b low; the
near river or blue ocean afar gbttcr with
flitting sails; the thunder and the scream
l <?f the I ghtning train startle the echoes
of the innumerable ravines, and swift as
lliought Ify tidings of humanity over the
gbitering \vire. All is life around; oh!
yes, there is no death here. (Jould you
explore tho secrets of these green graves,
vou would behold the laws of nature
changing the body of your friend to the
grass biade and the flower cup nnd the
'dancing foliage, dlr.s mute form you
bur’ d out of your s’ght, as dead, is ris
ing to another life. Why fancy, then,
that death is a reality ? Why not accept
the lesson of the Rural Cemetery, that
the soul is the center of the lite (hat
throbs adown the hills, and along these
liver shores; that this son! is not here
haunting its body; that body and soul
have gone to their own place, the one to
blossom in new material shapes, the oth
er to inspire some grander sphere of toils
in vaster worlds? Come not here to
mus- of death; for science Las confirmed
the glo'ious doctrine of religion, that
“ death is abolished,” and there is only
perpetual change in life.— y l. ]). ALtyo.
The I’rcsicletit’s Friends.
In a sketch of Col. Baker, in Harper’s
Magazine tor December, the following
:ci< rciice is made to the recent death of
pj - dent LhiC 'lll’s friends :
“A-'asfor the dead Lours of honest

Tun Gi.orv of the Pines.—Magnifi
c ut! nay, sometimes almost terrible!
(t 'aer trees, tufting crag or hill, yield to
t’ e '- rm an ' sway of the ground, clothe
it with soft compliance, are partly its
comforters. But the pine rises in serene
resistance, self-contained; nor can I ever
wiihout awe stay long under a great
Alpine cliff', far from all houses or wo:Is
of man, looking up to its companies of
nine, as they stand on tho inaccessible
juts and perilous ledges of the enormous
v.a”, its quiet multitudes, each like the
sha low of the one beside it—upright,
fixed, spectral, n« troops of ghosts stand
ing on tho walls of Hades, not knowing
each other—dumb forever. Aon cannot
reach them, cannot cry to them—these
trees never hear human voice; they are
far above al! sounds but the winds. No
foot ever stirred fallen leaves of theirs.
All comfortless they stand between the
two eternities of the Vacancy and the
rocks; yet with such iron will that the
r« ck itself looks bent and shattered be
side them—fragile, weak, inconsistent,
compared to their dark energy of deli
cate life and monotony of enchanted
pride, unnumbered, unconquerable.—
Hus kin.
Commodore Paulding and the
now rebel Commodore Tatnall were very 7
intimate friends up to the time of the
latter turning trai'or. While the Gov
ernment was allowii g officers to resign,
the two had a long interview, in which
Commodore Paulding exhausted every
argument to induce Tatnall to remain in
the service of his country. But it was
ail in vain. At the close of the confer
ence Tatnall put the question : ‘* What
will vou do if we meet ?’’ The answer
was piompt and energetic: “I will
shoot you !” Tatnall doubted his ears,
and repented the question in a depreca
ting tone. He received the same answer
with rdditional vim, and became thought
ful.
The editor of tho Union Demo
crat, who Las bad some experience in the
pu’o'tsays :
Some years ago, when folks used to
ask us about these things more than now
adays, a good old lady inquired of us
what kind of water longer water was ?
Wo replied that we'd never heard of that
kind of drink. “ Why yes,” she said,
•‘Paul cautioned Timothy to drink no
longer water, but to take a little wine for
his stomach's sake.”
Good Idea.—By a recent act of the
Legislature of Vermont, similar to that
already adopted in other States, all banks
are required to brand with a stamp or
pen, every counterfeit or alter
ed bill which is offered them in payment
or on deposit. If this act is properly
obeyed, it will bo a great safeguard to
the public, as it will stop the j.assago of
spurious bills from one person to another
af.er they have been offered to the
banks. A great amount of this kind of
fraud has been practiced by men pretend
ing to be honest.— Chicago Journal.
An office has been opened in Wash
ington for embalming the dead. Their
system is that of the celebrated Surquet,
of Paris, by nn injection of a powerful
antiseptic fluid, which soon hardens the
tissues to a marble-Lke substance, and
perfectly preserves the color and features,
and keeps the body free from all offensive
odor.
