Good domestic training is hardly included i among the common virtues of Amercan life. ; Travelers from other countries spak with i wonder and indignation of the negligence of ' parents in the United States, of the almost universal failure to inculcate filial reverence, ' 1 and to enforce obedience in the home circle 1 of children. Bors and girl emerge intoman hood and womanhood, with lialf-devt-loptd : physical and moral faculties, and during the ir ! very brief tutelage often govern rather than obey. They live upon dainties instead of simple food; they develope a moibid imaina ' tion, by reading innumerable works of lic-tion; ' they k.ep late hours, and have their own se ries of parties like their elders; in short, the simplicity of childood is remembered as one of the antiqu-j relics of another age.

Henry Lee, oi the death of Gen. Wash ington, Dec. 26. 1799, that Revolutionary patriot used the following eloquent lan guage: "Methinks I see his august image, and hear tailing f-om his venerable lips these deep sinking words: Cease, sons of America, la menting on separation! Go on and counnu by your wisdom the fruits of our joint ef forts, and common dangers! Reverence reli gion, diffuse knowledge throughout your land, pa'roize the ams and sciences. Let lib erty and order be inseperable companions. Control party spirit, tl. bane of tree govern ments. Observe good faith to. and cuhivate peace with all na ions. Shut up every ave nue to foreign influence; contract raiher than extend national con netion; rely on .yourself only. Be Americans ia thought, word, and deed. Thus will you give immutably to the Union which w:-.s the constant object of my tcrre'i.-d labors; thu will you preserve undis turbed to the litct pos'evhy the felicity of a people to me most dear; and thus will you supply (ii'iny happiness is now nuht to you) the only vacancy in the round of pure bliss high Heaven bestows." "Such were the sentiments of Gen. Lee. of Virginia, a'uibu ed to the Father of his Country, and which perfectly coincided with those he expressed during his life. Such are ihe principles against which the ad ministration of Franklin Pierce and the whole foreign party are waging war, for the avow al of which they proscribe patriotic Ameri cans. Flibtatios of Married Women. The re cent occurrences in Boston lorms the text for a sensible sermon by the Hartford Courant. The improper "flirtations" of ihe two mar ried women with young men has blasted their characters forever, caused the death of an amiable but weak young man. and imprison ed the huibands on a charge of murder! Says th Courant: The '-innocent flirtation" of married women is one of the abominations of modern society. Even a desire for promiscuous admiration is wrong in the wife. The love of one and his approval should be all that she should desire. Let her be ever so beautiiul, it is a disgusting an appaling sight, to see her decorating that b'H.HV for the public giZ'' to see her seek ing the attention of all the seseless fops aioiind her, an 1 rejoicing in the admiration of other eves than those ol her husband. lb-r beauty should be for him alone, not for the gaze of the fools that flutter around her. There i- always with the sedate and the wise, a sensation of disgust, when a married lady attempts to ensnare and entrap young men by a profuse di-play of her charms, or an unli censed outlay of her smiles. Such charms and such smiles are loathsome to the indiffer ent behol !er "the trail of the serpent is over them all." Such wives should know, if they do not know it already, that their influence over the virtue and the prudence of young men is as delete! io---as if they were the most abandon ed of women. They lead them to believe there is no purity in the sex that married virtue is but an outside show ati 1 that de'i cacv and propriety are but masks r outside dresse. The effect of their character is that . t" a siient corruption, sapping the foundation of Ic.-ior a-:d probhy, and truth. Let them rer-i v p their charms and tic; fascination of their fLiiHTing attention for the husbands to whom thev belong, and if they must be ad ni'red, let it be as faithful wives, as self deny ing mother-, the eduea'ors of a young gen eta io-i of immortals. It was said in the praise of a woman in ancient limes Dsmum manfil. lunam fttit. Let such be the motto of married women now.

But in the case of Judge Perkins we bolJ that he lias : forfeited all claim to r-speC that he has al- lowed hi poliMca! prejudices to over-ballaace and out-weigh his impartiality as a Jude that he has pre judged the liquor law ani that he lia a-Jted in a manner unworthy of i one in his high position.
