An Imppportna. Inquiry.' . j
A local pitper, published in the Eng
lish coal districts, the Wakefield Journal,
tells a striking story of a wedding in a
village church in the neighborhood,
which well illustrates the ignorance of1
the lower classes oi ureal Untain :
The brideeroom was a miner, and was
evidently one of the most ignorant of
his class, and his intended spouse was
one in the same station in life. Tho
ceremony proceeded uninterruptedly
until th. question was put, " Wilt thou
have this woman to be thy wedded wife?"
At this point the man turned round to the
woman, and, to the intense horror of the
omciating minister, coolly asked her,
"Wi ta clean mi booits?" The bride
vouchsafed no answer to this interroga
tion, although repeated three times, each
time with greater emphasis and force,
before the clergyman recovered irora bis
surprise, and ordered the "fratching
pair" out of the edifice. This was an
eventuality as astounding and as unex
pected to the bridegroom as his own con
duct had been to the parson, but it had
the effect of bringing: him to his senses.
and he piteously begged of the clerk to
ask the minister to oome back, promising
most abjectly to go through the eere
mony " all reel." " Ha was nobbat an
ignorant mon," he said, "and didn't naw
he wor doin1 wrung. The fact wor he
and his missis had had money a rumpus
about the booit cleanin job, and he d
sworn he'd ne'er wed her if .he didna
promise to fettle 'em." The clergyman
was at last induced to return, ana after
reading the couple a lecture on the sa-
creduess of the ceremony tony were about
to go through, and the solemn character
of the building in which they were, pro
ceeded with the service, and the two were
made one, the "booit controversy be
ing adjourned tine die. It is to be hoped
that, when resumed, the "booit" itself
will not be turned into a powerful auxili
ary in the discussion.
Brigham Ycung, of Utah, has been
blowing up the women of that free-and-eauy
territory in a manner at once awful
and unique. He accuses them of "whin
ing," and says that they must either
" stop that sort of nonsense " or else start
for the other side of Jordan, at once
and be tells bis own forty wives that he
means thru, as well as the rest of the
feminine Utahyans. He says that the
kernel of th. whole difficulty the occa
sion of the disagreeable and unbearable
" whinings " lies in the fact that " the
women expect too much of the Saints I"
He says that the women even bit own
forty ar. to weak-minded as to suppose
that the saintly elders of the Mormon Is
rael can make a heaven on earth for them
and that after a woman has entered a
Raint'a familr. and finds that after all bo
is not able to make a heaven on earth
for her, she begins to " wbine and talk
about "too many wives," and tho "evils
of polygamy," and such like " blasphe
mous twaddle." Brigham also tays it is
hit opinion that any woman who ever
lived would be disappointed in the belt
" Saint" in Utah, should she marry him
and on this point we unreservedly
agree with Brigham, The Governoinjave
all the women warning that two weeks
from date ot his sermon against " whin
ing," he should call upon them either to
promise never to " wbii " more, or else
to leave the Territory bag and baggage,
saying that he would even send off all his
own wives, and go to heaven alone,
sooner than to take such a "whining"
crew along with him. We shall await
the next newt from Utah with deep in
terest. Th. Ilutiei of aa English Lady's Kaid.
One of these not-to-be-envied persons,
a race that may be classed with that of
governeises, has recently made disclo
sures, throwing peculiar light upon the
women of rank in "old England." "Much
is requiaed from us in London," the
writes. "We must, above all things, be
very punctual, for fashionable ladies
chango their dress at least five times a
day during the season- We must have
polished manners, be no older than thirty
nve Jea-t, and always be cheerful and
good tempered, although for weeks
w. are kept without sloop uutil
four o'clock in the monrng
a practice which it equally injurious to
eyes and lungs. W. are expected to cut
and fit and use th. most improved ma
chine, and to dress hair for the morning,
evening, and court costume, at well at
for the drive; to iron well, read, write,
cipher; to speak French and German,
and, if poasible. to hav. traveled. And
there it still another function of a lady's
maid which it wppoaod to be a modera
introduction, but which is in fact SBerHy
a revival of aa ancient custom. We

f A it: $ J
We arived on the ground about sun
down, and had not to wait more than half
an hour until the advance guard com
menced coming in, which continued un
til we grew weary, and began to inquire
if they were not almost all in, our pilot
assuring us they had hardly commenced.
By-and-by the squads began to increase
in numbers, and becomi ng more frequent,
until finally they swelled into a vast
cloud, which almost obscured the heav
ens above ns from our view, and flowed
down the ravino in a perfect stream,
without any cessation, for upward of an
hour, accompanied by a noise like the
flowing of a mighty river. We were
amazed bewildered and requested our
brother hunter to hold our hat while we
would, with open .mouth and eyes, and
wide extended Brms, take in the scene
above us. Finally the rear guard came
up, and by the time they had all fonnd a
resting place, every tree, and bush, and
twig was bending beneath their weight,
resembling, more than any thing else we
can call to mind, a swarm of bees set
tling upon, tho limbs of a tree. ..The
ground -was covered with limbs broken
by their weight Wo noticed trees as
thick as a man's wrist broken and bent
to the earth, and saw othesr entirely up

A gambling house reporter of a New

A well knowa newspaper publisher and
politician has lost over a quarter of a
million of dollars. A paymaster in the
army wat a defaulter of $42,000, lost in
the same way. A well-known Califor
nian has lost about (60,000. A well
known citizen of Jersey City, doing a
large manufacturing business, was com
pletely ruined within a short time at the
faro-table. A young man keeping books
in Williamsburg, became a defaulter of
112,000. H. was the only support of an
aged mother, and waa obliged to flee his
