to Jerpmanise was on the ground with the
Ki-ht Honorable Lysander Cutswel!, of the ;
Crm of Cntswell d: Ia!by, and did not con-
j desceud to recognize her cousiu Kate, because

even found more to love and esteem in the !

dear reader, that our gentle Kate was not one
of the guests atthisgreat wedding, no indeed;
she had disgraced herself by associating with
a mechanic.
A few more weeks and there came another
wedding; a wedding at old 'Squire Lincoln's.

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. A wri- '
ter in Putnam's Magazine gives a graphic'
description of a scene oficn witnessed iu pub
lie houses in this country, which i- worthy :

small boy four or five years of age, who had I
a stat directly opposite mine, one day gavel
'mean opportunity of making an obscivntion
or two on the effects of the discipline of the ,
Virginia nursery. He was a determined hok- '
ing little fellow, evidently aeeusiomed to carry
things at home with a high hand, and kick
in;r all the little niggers about lijjhi ami lelt.

! At length the waiter asked him what Le
would have for dinner.
"Give me chicken," said he sharply.
The chicken was brought.
"Give me jelly."
The currant ieilv also was brought.
But. very soon, something going wrong
; the youth began to cry. His mother, how
ever, opposed him; and stopping his noise,
he called in a mild tone of voice, for some
' mi!k.
This furnished, he did not withdraw his
nose from the cup til! it ha 1 touched the bot
I torn; and when he did. there wa s:ill a drop
'pendent at its tip. This however, fell oti", as
throwing his head back against the chair, he
drew a loud, loug breath, as if his dinner

'sufficiently uncomfortable, he knew what he
wan'ed, and cried out boldly,
"Give me 'las.-es."

This paternal reproof brought the b!o -1 iti

Another Revolitiosart Testimoxt to
tiis JrsTXKSS of ora Brisciples. In an ora
tion deliiered at the request of Conrees. by
Gen. 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.

fifS" A friend remarked to us yesterday
l that he thought us wrong in holding Judgo

drc. As other friends may hold similar views,
1 we would state that w hare always entertain
ed doe respect for the Jtidi'-iary, when it acta
in a way to command respect. 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. Last winter, while
i the prohibitory law was being prepared, and
afu.r it had become all w. ii is well understood
, that he wrote sundry let'er to the Richmon i
: JeJforsonian, denouncing the law in pot-house
' sty!.-, and showing in what respect iteonSio
! ted with the Conspiration. And Dot only ibis,
; btr !vj l.as ever since violently opposed tha
! law; and but a few weeks before a decision
; was made by theSjpreme Court, he managed
to have case bro'tht before him as to
give an ex parti decision upon the Law. This
effectually killed thebw, and that is just what
he wanted.
No. sir, we hare no respect for a Judge
who. we have reason to believe, has prosiku,.
: tad i.is judicial powers to base party parpoa
; es. To Judge Davidson, we are willing t
i concede dua respect, although he decided in
i the same manner as Perkins. Bat until 'that
decision teas made, he expressed no opinion,
and no one knew what hi views were. He
preserved, at least, a semblance of rirtu;. al
