JO? My pretty' little dears, you are no
more fit for matrimony than a pullet is
to look alter alamiiy ot tonrteen ohiok
ens. Tne truth is, my dear girls, yon
want, generally speaking, more - liberty
and less' fashionable . restraint ; more
kitchen and less parlor'; mors exeroise
and less sofa; more' making paddings
and lesB piano : more frailness and loss
mock modesty. 1 1 like a buxom, brieht-
eyed, rosy-bheeked, hounoing lusa,1 who
can darn stockings, make her own frooks,
mend trousers, command a regiment of
pots, and shoot a Wild, duok as well as
the Paohess of Harlbro' or the quoen of
Spain, and be a lady with all in the drawing-room.

Mrs. Ellis' Lectures.
AWoin xe .Htssards Hat anybody ever
written upon the1 respoSibility ' which rests
with a husband with regard to the education
of his wife? Of coqrse , we know what,, you
will say about her bein g supposed to have
"finished her jeducatiin'' 'before marriage,
and all that; and yet you and we know that
she begins as a now : education with him as
if she' had never seen the alphabet, His
views, his feelings, his ideas, aro thoy noth
ing to; her,1 if she loves him? Yoftre after,
whon they "knew her as o girl," combs to
talk with her as a matron." do they not find
her husband reflected in every sentence, ci
ther for good or evil? Of course ' the more
strongly a woman lovia, th more complete
ii her own Identity absorbed in her hus
bands,; Thit Is a' piont vrhlch is tod much
neglected by married men,' , A good husband
almost certain to have a good fife; and if
shoba ''not so, good as he onld wish" , at
(he commenoemen, of ,theit married . life, he
can toon educate her up to the proper mark-
And on the other hand, he, can to, educate
her down as to resdor hi house a purgatory,
and, perhaps, bring upon himself and his
family the greatest agony and keenest pangs
of disgrace .which
