West had - evidently heard the admonition that " faint heart never won fair lady; for be pressed his suit with an ardor that soon received its reward, and their engagement was announced. Six months afterward, on a bright sunny day in May, the nuptials were cel ebrated.

Then removing the robe from her shoulders began the work upon her hair. First until it was softened suf ficiently to admit a comb.

Be it remembered that Prince Christian's years were far more suited to a union with the mother. At all events, the Queen overwhelmed the Prince with marks of distinction, and greatly excited her English subjects by conferring upon him the title of "Royal Highness, and further roused their indignation by plac ing him in a f osition of equality with the highest officers of the English army, where the English think the German Prince has no right to any footing what ever.

Oar laught.sr. Under this head the London Graphic prints a sensible article, which in so nianyjioinU is quite applicable to simi lar phases of society in this country, that we commend the following paragraphs to the attention of our readers: It seems touti that nothing could be better calculated tp hinder marriage than the present sys'.em of domestic economy, etiquette and hospitalities. In the first place the excessive luxury and display in which upper and middle rank indulge, forbids anything like easy intercourse between young people. hat with the wanton costliness of dress, entertain ments, and other family items, very little remains to be spent upon every-duy com forts and every-day enjoyments. In a large per centage of cases there is no doubt that the balance is on the wrong stoe.and that the people not only live up to the utmost they can afford, but afford themselves a trifle more than they can pay for. Consequently, a certain stereo typed scale of living is adhered to, at what cost the victims of conventionalism i .u.
