Tbonsht-4 on a Nbirl. A woman, trembling with weariness, and nearly discouraged with ill-success, stands anil looks ruefully down on the shirt she is ironing, when a new train of thought arrives, and she mu.f heed its voice. "Why are bhirts made with ruffles and plaits and ttitehing and puffs ? and why are they starched aud ironed with such infinite trouble T Is a bian any more or less a man, because of the ornamental shirt front which fashion .lic-tate? Which is the uglier, a plug hat or a atarched shirt? aud would not either of them suit a Feejee Islander better than a civilized man? I shall endeavor to prove the shirt to be a great promoter of Inng disease and censump-lio-i. The ornamental part, which i" ihf part to show, is mode of linen, and just covers the vital organs in front. 'otVon is bad enough, but linen is cruel. Then the dress, which should be made to protect the breast, is left open one third of the front, to display ornamental needle-work and jewelry, and men go backing around with hereditary con sumption. Why not say an hereditary love for display ? AjJ a" general thing, men dress warmly and comfortably on cold stormy day, when they go out, iiul the moment they set foot iuside their homes, about s;x or eight thick nesses of woolen goods, and about one tind one-half or two inches of cotton wadding are laid aside, or turned back to display the shirt It is not at all necessary that a shirt should be seen, then how much labor would be saved lo woman. It has never yet been my fortune to know a woman who could ca her husbcud's shirt right. Among the s-ary earliest recollections of my childhood, arises a ghost of a shirt with its button off, or too for back, or too far front ; iu collar always too stiff, or too limp the one big bugbear of the tash tab, and the one thing that could cot be put off till another day, in case jf aickneas or trouble. Then," whoever uiad a shirt right? For my part, I have never seen one that proved to be right. And where is the m.ed of perfec tion in au undergarmeut, if it be clean .ad whole? Men suffer from exposing their persons to display a shirt, and women gaffer from anxiety and fatigue and unnecessary labor in preparing it. Would not the cause of humanity be promoted by wearing a plain garment, without ornament or starch, and devo ting the time usually spent on 6hirts, to a careful study of the laws of health ? Thus one or two ot coaauuiption's causes would be done away. Keeping Fnitta. Hir William S apier was one day taking a long country walk, when he met a little girl about five years old sobbing over broken bowL Hhe had dropped and broken it, iu bringing it back from the field to which she had taken her father's dinner, and said she would be beaten on her return home for having broken it As she said this, a sudden pleam of hope seemed to cheer her. She innocently looked np into Sir Wil liam's face and said : "But yon can mend it, can't you?" He explained that be could not mend the bowl, but the trouble be could overcome by the .rift of a sixpence to bny another. However, on opening bis purse it was empty of silver, and he promised to meet his littba friend on the same spot tit the saiao hoar next day, and to bring sixpeuee with him ; bidding ber mean while tell ber mother sho had seen a gentleman who would bring her the ftuiucy for a bowl next day. The child, entirely trusting him, went on her way comforted. On his return home he found au invitation awaiting him to dine in Batli the following evening to meet some one whom he especially wiabi! to see. He hesitated for some little time, trying to calculate the possi bility of giving the meeting to bis little friend of the broken bowl and still being in time for the dinner party in Bath, Put finding this could not be, be wrote to decline accepting the invitation, on the plea of "a previous engagement," Baying, "I cannot disappoint her ; she rusted me." il Home" in m Bulb.

An elderly maiden aunt came to live with the two young ladies, and the household remained unbroken. Except the changes caused by the vacancy in their home, the lives of Ruth and Millie ! ....: i .... i...f,.. wuuuucu a uriviri It was not till the cousins bad resumed their places in society that Millie began to notice the difference made by her altered prospects. It was Ruth now, and not herself, that was the centre of attraction, . . . To be rid of tbe common herb of fops, j and to be mi longer pestered by their silly flattery, .Millie felt waa g thing to be thankful for. Rat when Orville Ryors turned bis back npon her, and joined tbe ranks of ber consiu's admir ers, she must have been other than a woman not to feel it. Mr. Ryors was the pet lieau of Bil lingdald. Handsome in person, accom plished in manners, and of fosoinating address, he was not one whose atten tions were likely to prove distasteful in any quarter, and when they were directed toward Millie Granger in a manner suf ficiently marked to excite no small de gree of envy, we need not be surprised if, instead of repelling, she just a little encouraged them. It would have rf quired a closer analy sis than Millie had ever made of her feelings to show her how little she really cored for Mr. Royers, and how much she cared for Arthur Warren, whom she had known and liked since they had played and, sometimes, quarreled to gether in childhood. Rut Arthur's self examination had gone deeper. He de votedly loved Millie, and kntw it. If he had never said so outright, it was from motives of delicacy, prompted by tbe difference of their positions. She was a prospective heiress ; he was with out fortune, and void of expectations, save those whose realization depended on hiuaself. - - - Having never spoken out, it may be that Arthur Warren bad no right to feel aggrieved by the attentions paid by Mr. Ryors to Millie, ne should have re membered that young gentlemeu who j have nothing to say for themselves are ! not privileged to stand in the way of ' others who have. ! But Arthur was not reasonable. tt I . 1:1 1 r .11. ..1 'was 110. eveu cnuuiu. xjv inaii icuru . . . - , . I with Millie on the score of On?" Ryors, without a word of explanation ' as to what coucern it was of hi if she ! married that gentleman the next day. I Xow Millie was a girl of spirit. She i not only refused to decline Mr. Ryors attention at the nnwarrantabb) Uicta ' tion of Arthur, but received them with ! rather more encouragement than before. I People began to say it would be I match soon, and it might Lave beeu, j bad not Millie's nncle died. For Mr. j Ryors, as we have said, was a very at. j tractive person, and Millie bad not srifli- ciently scrutinized her heart to be aware j that her chief interest in him sprang i from the pleasure of having triumphed j where ao many others had failed, and a disposition to assert ner own wiiL When Arthur Warren left his native village without so much aa calling to bid her good-bye, Millie cried a little, without well knowing why, and that evening went to a ball with Orville Ryors, and was among tbe gayest of the gay. It is very likely she would then and there have accepted Mr. Ryors, bad he said tbe word, just to show how little she cared for Arthur Warren. The grief that Millie felt at her nnole's death for a season overshadowed all other thoughts. But when time at length had ao tempered her sorrow that her life began again to flow in its accus tomed chaunel, it was not with a little chagrin that she beheld tbe man whose attentions had beeu lately so devoted to her that people began to couple their names significantly, turn and follow her fortune instead of herself. Millie knew now how little she bad ever cared for Orville Ryors ; but would others understand it? The thought stung ber past endurance. And the meanness of him who thus humiliated ber scarce exceeded in her eyes that of her cousin Rutb, who permitted, in stead of spurning bis advances. In tbe bitterness of her heart, Millie resolved to quit ber oousin's abode, and make her way to the great city, trusting that where so many live there mnst be many ways of getting a living, some of which would be open to her. She had been liberallv supplied with money during ber uncle a lifetime, aud bad husbanded enough to meet the ex penses of her journey, and, for a time, her living. So one day, without a word to any one, she secretly packed her trunk, caused it to be cnuveyed to the railway station, and took the traiu for Xew York. The day and night her journey lasted was one of alternate hopes and misgiv ings. At times she would have fain turned back, but when she thought of tbe jeering tongues behind her, her eyes would flash through her tears, and though her lips quivered, her heart would again become firm and resolute. Millie bad never seen the city before. IU din and bustle confused her. Sur- rounded by importunate haekmeu and hotel runners quick to perceive her in experience, she found herself at last, without her own volition, seated in a carriage whose driver undertook to convey ber to the Kickshaw, the best house in the city, be assured her, though it had not a very inviting look, Millie thought, as the carriage stopped in front of it. "Your fare. Miss, said the . driver, jam ping down "five dollars you know. " It was not the extortionate demand that brought a troubled look over the girl's face: j Tutting her hand into her pocket, she found ber ' money had dis appeared. Hhe searched everywhere, butiu vain, titie had doubtless been robbed in the crowd after leaving the train. A feeling of hopeless terror over came her at the thought of being there, a total stranger, without a cent in the world. Iu a trembling voice Millie explained her situation. "That, dodge won't do. said tbe driver. "So. it wou't do." added a frowsy- lookiug clerk, who made his appearance . . . ..... .... . . , J u n no moueou the irkbUa that hae no money, jou ku..; . ' .

"Well, I declare 1" uttered shrill voice uoue other than Miss Chirrup's, who, without Millie's knowledge, had 00 rue to live iu tbe city, aud who chanced to bo passing at the time. ,:) Matters were rfdon explained, m3 Miss Chirrup, who had the kindest of hearts, invited her relative borne with her ; and Arthur, having paid the driver his just due. called another carriage, aud es- courted the ladiea to their ilMBtiuatuiu. He called round that evening and s.ioke his mind to .Millie. And .Millie found out she bad always loved him. Aud Arthur explained that it was only the difference iu their former prospects that had kept him silent. ' And Millie said she wouldn't care to be riah if it wasn't ' for his sake. And Arthur said he was glad she wasu't rich, and added that he was earuiug a salary that two could live on comfortably. And, in short, the two lovers were as happy as heart could desire. Ruth Morgan's anxiety at Millie's sudden disappearance had been relieved bv intelligence of her safety, and Uutli waa iu high spirits when Mr. Ryors called, determined, this time, to bring matters to a crisis.

While Geneva is mourning over the remains of the Duke of Brunswick with a grief which finds consolation only in the legacy leq neat bed to ber by the departed 'prince, the City of Carlisle, Scotland, haa found a little Duke of Brunswick of her own, whose bequest in her favor, although not so magnifi cent as that of the Duke of Brunswick to Gneva, is sufficiently large to call forth ber utmost feelings of gratitude to her posthumous benefactor. It seems that a certain Mr. Edward Stuart Wil son, who in 1855 fell into trouble by committing forgery, and was sentenced to transportation for twenty years, bnt was subsequently released on a ticket-of-leave, has left to the corporation of Carlisle the sum of SoO.OiK) for building a new town hall, and 915,000 for erect ing a re rod on in Carlisle Cathedral, be sides other legacies, amonnting in all to about 750,000.
