THE SLANG OF CRITICISM. ! r Thirty-two Synonymg for Drunken- Bess and Seventeen for Money. Degeneration ef the En' , i fUsli Language. - ' "VASTLY OFaEXITE.' From the Court Circular. The rrowth of alantr moans the decay of language; the admission of a nomen clature which disregards propriety ana fixes upon objects irrational and incon sistent names, is at once a nuisance and a vice, and persistence in it means the inxvitaliln dnlinaini! of tho mother tongue, a cou r so which tho scholars of all ages bavo endeavored to cneca, wuuo their cfl'orts were strenuously directed to rclinc. elevate and improve There has been a growing tcuilency to incorporate into our already too barbarous and in congruous language a Hood of cant terms, American colloquialisms, pain cisms, sham classicisms, professional idioms, ttltrainontauisins, iiml a genornl dolugo of illilcratoslang. Allthisshows want, not excess, of fertility, and degen eration rather than extension. England lioing an adaptivo nation, learns and hml a home lor ncw-iaiigiea expres Kinnx of all sorts, shielding herself when attacked on tho point with the excuse thatthcyarc notof her own manufacture; but the pussor of bad coin is every whit us guilty as tho coiner, and England's ready indorsement of all the. vulgar vo cabuabilily to invent slang for herself. Slang is of very modem date. Xhero was much homeliness und no little coarseness in some ol the sayings of the famous writers, and perhaps more faco tiousness and siguilicanco among our great humorists than will be found uow- a-davs; but wo sue little or no tendency ' .. j to slang, r-ven in tne lauious niguwaj man'a oncra. GuV. who should have known his subject, gives us nothing in the conversations of his lowest characters which requires a glossary; while Dean Swift, had such a commodity as. lang existed, would never have omitted to gar rjish his works with it for the good of posterity. ' Dictionaries of slang have been published since his day, and the latest publication, founded on Grose's famous book, has attained to goodly dimensions; for slang ia on the incroase, and no stand has been made against it, because everybody, from the .highest to the lowest, cultivates and speaks it." ' ' . WniT iS 8t.A!MI? ' nfnr,la"whirh are not to be found in any standard dictionaries, and which aro unauthorized by grammatical or literary precedent, are. slang, and such words are used throughout the length and breadth of the land by all degrees of wen indis criminately. The use of vulgar equiva lents distinguishes all Englishmen, and it would weary onr readers, and certainly not enlighten them, were we to treat them to a complete list, corrected up to date, of the synonyms for some 01 tne generic words in commonest use. Kor money alone there are seventwu equiva lents, without counting the slang terms applied to the various species ol coins, or tlie different expressions used to sig nify Ihe being rich or poor. As might be expected, in England, the synonyms for drunkenness are plentiful, amounting to no less than thirty-two; and for on article of drink, fruitful in producing these names, namely, gin, we nave ten different equivalents. -Man is liable to lie called a cove, a ehap, a cull, an article, a codger, a miner, a wj, and according to his grade, bo has some fifty t nbdivisions; according to his profession, some eighty or more. ' This that we have quoted is a mere drop in the ocean, mere easualti, enumerated from memory, and without the). least at tempt at any exhaustive list; possibly, with better knowledge, we might aug ment the list by at least double the amount. Slang, howeTer, is not con cluded here; low language is not alone in its "nrgot;" fashion has its vulgarity, and a god deal of it, too as unmean ing gibberish as anything that we have criven hitherto, tha ir rent iest of the fash ionable slang being thnt it is made up of misconstrued rencn idioms, wbtcu, in their English garb, are sheer nonsense. Witness a wedding "on the ttivil." which is twaddle; the betm momle, which is rubbish; a the daneanle, which is rig marole; a chaperon, which is foolish ness to say uutliing of tho meaningless frivolities of such words as ;of, mrttallitiHce, rerhtrcke, and a thousand other words falsely applied. THE suaau or caiTiciriN. A a to fashion able pron unria t ion j which in themselves mean " slang " we take no cognizance of them; they are fleeting material and change taeir aspeea every day. Criticism ha ita special slang, wliirh ia vastly offensive, as being born of emntines" and arrogance. A 'pw technical term constitute the stock in trade of every art critic in Encland. and fellowship is the keystone of prt or blame. 1 hus, through all stations ol so ciety, runs Ihe lode of slant. Let our reader for a moment conceive the dim cully which present iiaelf to a foreigner wheu he encounter a master of alalia;, what tribulation, what aeertaiaty beaei the nnhappy atranper. If the oSjecl of hi inquiry is a political " nov," he ia enlightened to thi effevl: "Oh! it wa a put-up thing altogether.

What hope has a resident Frenchman to accomplish the difficulty of our lan guage? Whilst he is mastering one idiom, another and another has ap peared to his ntter discomfiture, and he finds himself fighting againBt a strongly running tide of slang, which keeps him in a condition of tho most hopeless per plexity. I : there a reason for this? Should Ihia be? . Idleness, sooner than nsa a recognized vocabulary, invents one which is spurious; idleness, double-distilled, imitates this; and so, according te) the space left by weakness, does the vice gain ground. Ignorance uses slang, because ignorance copies idleness, which is the parent of synoiivm. ' A BISEBTEU JIASSI0S. Remarkable Ntory of Conjugal Af- . fecliou." From the New York Evening Poet.) Not far from Murristown, New Jersey, and situated on what is known as the Madison xoud, may .be seen a large and fine house, standing in the middle of ex tensive pleasure grounds, and, with the grounds, bearing the marks of having been the abode of persons of taste and wealth. The once beautiful park now, however,, presents the appearance of having been the camping ground of at least a regiment of demoralized soldiers, so numerous are the traces everywhere of fires, and wanton hacking among the frees, shrubs, aud evergreens. . Where once were flowerbeds and rare plants now browse stray cattle, and pigs by the score root to their nose's content iu the soft turf of the luwn. On ap proaching the house a still more terrible scene of ruin may be found. The hall doors stand wide open, and as the stran ger enters several cattlo talmy survey him from their comfortable positions on the drawing-room (loor, ,. fhe house is three stories high and surrounded with a cupola. The rooms are spacious and numerous, and were finished in the best possible manner when built. Windows opening to the floor, and consisting of InVge aud valuable paneaof glass, oppose little or no obstruction to the cattle and pigs, the former generally taking sash and alt with them when loa virgin haute. On the floor of what had evidently been tho library, tramps or mischievous boys have lighted fires, whose flames were fed, from appearances, by the doors of cupboards, stair railings, and other small pieces of woodwork of the house. In many places the floor has been burnt almost through, and how the house has escaped from tire is a wonder. With carbonized ends of wood hideous and revolting picturos havo been drawn on the pure white walls, together with words of an indecent character. The plaster center orniiBients of the rooms have been the murk for tho intru ders to shy empty bottles and stones at, mid all arc greatly damaged. Door knobs, bells und their wires mid puUf, wuUT-fniicct.1, the paraphernalia of tne bath room, and everything of a like movable nature, . have been wrenched from the fastenings and carried awny. Wiudow shutters have also disappeared, though probably burnt as fuel and not taken from the house. Such a scene of rack and desolation can seldom be found within thirty miles ol the city of New York. Ono micht imagine such wreck among the desolation ot the South, hut in the prosperous North it u unpar alleled. ' The houso has ita sad story, Built hut a few years ago, it passed into the possession of a wealthy New York mer chant, who used every endeavor to ren der it a homo of beauty. No expense was spared, and the houso and grounds became uoien ior vneir appropriate uc longings. ' The mistress of the house, thol wifo of its -owner, unfortunately then sickened and died,. The friends gathered to attend the funeral, and the body was borne irom its oeaun ful earthly home to the cemetery. The Inat tn leave the home was its owner, and ho, turning the key in tho lock, left it just as it was to its fate. The neigh bors clamored for days for entrance, out po one was within, and all attempts to persuade its owner, who had gone to New York, to return to it, were unavailing. Attempts were made to rent or purchase it., hut to neither rjlan would the owner accede. It sold at all the ground saoum be sold for a cemetery. Un tueir peril he forbade his neighbors to enter the ouso. The thieves of the neighborhood soon fnnad out the rich field, and for nights pilUged it. The constables, hearing of tins, laid in wait in the bouse one night and a.trested three men as they were rolling up fine carpets for the purpose of taking them away. The owner, when notified to appear and prosecute the thieves, not only refused vo do so, but threatened to prosecute the constables for eutering his house, saying that it was bod enough to have three thieves break into a house sacred to the mem ory of his wife, without having as many constable also therein. Some friends seeing the peculiar state of feeling of tho owner, removed the bal ance of the furniture to a safe place, and the house remains open to the world. Bad persons congregate thore, and Ihe bouse at night is snpiioeed to be the re sort of thieves and robbers. Some years ago a squatter settled himself in a little gardener's house on the Eroperty, and plows the land and reaps is crops as if the fee simple rested in him. The owner lias refused to notice him or turn him out. Last spring a certain general in the Vnited States army offered to buy or rant the property, but not being himself a cemetery, or posscssiug any of the religion or sooth ing influences of that locality, his appeal was rejected. On all other subjects the owner is said to be most rational, and carries on a large butnnesi with great success. The property Is valued al :13,000. ' Hatal JDeelara.

CITY , ' (Short and I'Ong- Dreaaea. ' Gail Hamilton, writes in 'Harper's Ba- 9ft. . Kly swiftly round, ye whccls of tuno. and bring the day when society shall have settled upon some general street dress, simple, graceful, convenient and unchanging, and shall leave individual taste , ouly choice of material, color and subordinate details. Then yon shall not have to alter except to freshen. Then yod shall be pointed, or rounded, or squared according to your uaing, aou shall stay so. Then you shall not spend your time ia pulling ol last year's satin, your money in putting on this year's velvet, but satin to borrow Punch's wit shall be sat in ' till it is frayed out of existence. c -. ; ; r t But even as tbiuej are we a're very comfortable. I have thought, indeed, that we were verging towards tho millennium of dress. Barring the excess ot trim ming, it seems to me there could have been a time wheu dress was more favor able to women than it is now. With rubber boots and waterproof for storms, with light, pictaresque hats, with imall, short skirts and sleeved over-garments, and breast permitting bodices, and styles so various that scarcely anything is strikingingly unfashionable, what doth hinder that a woman should eat and drink and walk and be merry? News paper people, indeed, talk of a dress re form; but there Bhall no reform be given tbsm save the gradual reform I have sug gested, and that will come imperceptibly, and only as we slowly gain more cultiva tion and a higher and finer life.- Our drcis now Is fully up to our social life. And here comes the costumers, and flaunt long skirts in our faces once more. Do I bluine the costumers? Not I. They have their living to get, and must invent or select continually. But if the women of this country, having onoft tasted the freedom of short dresses, sht.ll be mean spirited enough to go into long ones again at the dictate of any costumer un-. der the sun, they have themselves and nobody else to blame. A pretty thing it will be for them to talk, about making laws, if they have not sense enough nnd spirit to keep out of the mud! A fine thinir to be a Reoublican sovereign when you have not independence enough to resist tne nai oi a loreign tyrant as iu me cut of your own gown I . lor here is no question of thinking or not thinking about your dress. You ean walk just a well with three flounces as with none; but a long dress interferes with the ener gies, the activities, the safety and health of every day. A long dress in the street means inconvenience, untidiness, dis comfort, waste, indolence, repression, cramped muscles, subordination and slavery. If women reinvest themselves in trail ing skirts they deserve all the evils which mav befall them. If women relinquish their short suits, may their husbands tyrannise over them and abuse them for ever I May the women's rights women bo forever forced to see men legislate and womun sit still. May the anti-women's rights women be forced to vote at the polls and to sorve in the jury box. Muy husbands ever control all the incomes of their wives, and may wives bo forever disabled from disposing of their own property. May the courts always have the powor of dispossessing a mother. of her child, and imposing upou it. a gtiar- dianship foreign to her will. May Brid get in tha kitchen lorever prick tuo pics with her hair pin, aud John Chinaman moihten the nio crust from his mouth, Mar Mr. Thomas Nust portray the Coming Woman doing general house work, and Dr. Nathan Allen conliuuo to nublislt in the religious newspapers cheerful statistical articles on the decrease of tho population in New Eng land. May Laura ever be obliged to pave tho way to Frederick's purse with toothsome viands, and never know what it is to be joint sovereign of the woman s kingdom! May sewing machines bo broken past remedy, and ruffles come in like a flood, and men wear seven bosoms to one shirt, and the bosom factories stop work and all the laundries dry up! May women receive one-quarter the wages of men and do twice the work, and kid gloves go up to five dollars a pair, and tear out on the back of the hand the first time they are put onl In short; may women be held a sub ject race when they shall have proved themselves one, and be oppressed and spoiled evermore; for they will surely deserve it if they go back to the leeks and onions of Egypt alter having eaten the manna and quails of the promised land! Long skirts indeed I Bad Si'owb Drnkra la Divorce Court. From the Hudson (Wiaconsla) Times. - Our readers are somewhat informed in refcreuce to the Williams divorce case, which has been on trial at Osceola for the past four weeks. The trial has been long, tedious and unpleasant. The testimony elicited has shown most deplorable state of affairs in Williams' family. As a matter of course, a great deal of feeling has been manifested on both sides. No one who has not been at the trial can form any idea of the bit terness shown and the interest felt by the friends of the respective parties. On Wednesday both Mr. and Mrs. Williams recoived letters from this city stating that their youngest child, George, aged seven years, was seriously sick, and doubts were entertained of his recovery. Their letters were received about six o'clock in the afternoon. Two hours later a messenger arrived there with the snd news that the boy was dead. Words fail to describe the scene when the sad news was received. The messenger drove up tn the barn near the hotel, and called for the landlord. Mrs. Williams was in the hotel, and hearing him, went out and inquired if tha team was from Hudson. The driver said it was. She inquired if he knew how George Williams wa. He said be was dead. Mrs. Willinms uttered a cry of distress, and stood fixed as a statue fur a moment. She then swooned, and was carried helpless to her room. In a few moments the news was an nounced in open court by Judge Weth erby, and the scene presented was the most affecting one we ever witnessed. Tears were in every eye, and tho gloom aud sadness instantly darkened every heart Such were) the eircurnstanees under which the news was received in Osceola. No loss sad were the circum (tanoes of the boy's death. - He was here alone. He had no home; he was under no restraint. His father and mother, brother and siter, were all away, and, like a strolling gipsy, he rambled about town, getting his meals at different places, and sleeping where night found him..'- Ho no doubt, would have been woll cared for if he would have staid at any one place, but thia he would not do. and ao on was here to direct him. Ho was taken sud denly sick on Monday night and died on Wedueaday. The funeral take place to day, e4 we shall be called upon to wit. nes the mournful rpectacla of a hus band and wife, who for week have been arraying evidence again.! each other, and "struggling for the pocs.ion of their children, Lllowing the dead body of the ynunzeat, and, perhana, the dearest, to ihe grave.
