LOUIS p. ANDERSON, f ruDuslle "
A Frenchman's Opinion of the United
States .—M. Alfred D'Alembert has published
a book on America. On slavery he is neutral ;
but maintains that the condition of the slaves,
physically, is superior to that of the peasants in
many parts of Prance. Of the inferior cast into
which the free blacks at the North are converted,
even by the Abolitionists, after speaksng of their
exclusion from all participation on an equal
footing, in the business and pleasures of white
life, their exclusion ,'rom public offices, from
theatres, hotels and railroad cars, he adds :
Death itself does not rehabilitate them ; they
have a sepcr.-tte burial place ! And it would not
surprise me if the Americans should pretend
that God had set apart for them a hell and a par
adise, so that the classification might be observed
in the other world. Do not forget that this is
the case in the Northern States, where slavery
has long since ceased to exist, and where they
manifest the greatest impatience at not seeing
it abolished by their neighbors.
He writes as follows on the subject of Ameri
can gallantry :
I am profoundly humiliated ; I blush to the
roots of my hair ; I know not where to hide my
self. On the faith of tradition I had hitherto
believed that the French people were the most
gallant people in the world. Everything sup
ported this conviction. Songs, ballads, the
good opinion we generally entertain of ourselves,
and the error of foreign people, who say from
habit: " Gallant as a Frenchman."
A profound error which I have recognized
with shame and surprise! Gallantry is not
•dead. It has deserted Europe ; it has taken re
fuge in the United States. * * I proclaim
it openly—it is in America that I have seen true
gallantry universally practiced, spontaneously,
disinterestedly. There, woman ie respected for
her own sake, because she is woman ; because
she is, or will be, the mother of a citizen. If a
good thing could be carried to an excess, I should
say that the rights attributed to the fair sex are
pushed to exaggeration. The women know their
power, they abuse it as tyrants do who know
that there are no limits to their authority.
In summer when it is too warm to stay at
home, all America travels, by railroad and by
steamboat, to interior wateriug places, to sea
side resorts, or wherever else the inhabitants of
the United States are supposed to amuse them
selves.
It is in these excursions that one can judge
better than anywhere else of the extent and de
gree of this true gallantry, and of the eager
deference shown, invariably, to women. They
arrive late ; all the seats in the cars are occu
pied ; twenty gentlemen immediately rise, at the
risk of remaining on their feet, or even of losing
their journey i they quietly seat themselves,
without as much as saying " thank you." The
least sign of gratitude to the men is superfluous.
L ynch L aw as A dministered bt W omen .—By
the annexed extract of a letter from China, De
cember 8th, published in the New York Com
mercial, it seems that a female coolie, is worse
than a tigress, and that lynch law, as adminis
tered in China, is severer than with as outside
barbarians. Perhaps, however, if a wife were al
lowed to avenge her husband's murder, ia the
first moment of her excitement; married men
would feel very secure, and the question of mar
ried or unmarried be always put before com
mencing a fight :
" Oar peaceable suberbs were a scene of un
wonted uproar yesterday afternoon. A Canton
man quarrelled with a Fuh Chau man ia the
street and killed him on the spot. He was in
stantly seised by the mob, and with his hands
tied behind him, taken to the top of the hill
back of the foreign hongs, and bound to a pine
tree. The wife of the deceased Coolie took a
nail sand drove it into the body, shoulders, breast,
temples and eyes of the writhing culprit, aided
and abetted by a furious multitude ia her bloody
revenge. The man was just alive at sundown,
several hours after. I saw the mangled body
this morning. The head was a perfect mass of
gore. The oondact of the womaa is loudly ap
plauded by the natives."
W hom P a*ticdlabs .—A good story is told
ef an old lady who had received a letter from
«er sea, a sailor, m board a merchantman,
Which ran thus :
" Have been driven into U m Bay of Fandy by
» pampoose right ia the teeth. It bio wed great

ion; tin oaptain lost his quadrant, aadeoulda't

Tfct oW woman, who could not read herself
got a neighbor to repeat it to her three or foar
times, until she thought she had got it by haart.
She then «aHied oat to tell the story:
"Oh, my poor sonI"
" 0,6 mstter , mother ? I hope

«Oh, thank God, he's »fei But he has been

Bow to Preserve Women.
There is nothing in the world that we think
so much of as we do of women. Our mother is
a woman—wife, sisters, pretty cousens, are all
women ; and the daughters will be if (Heaven
spare them !) they live long enough. And then
there is a love of women in general, which we do
not deny. A fine, magnificent specimen of the
sex, full of life and health—a ripe red cheek and
lip, and flashing eye, is something that does one
good to look at, as she illuminates the humdrum
sidewalks of every-day streets. A North River
Steamboat under full headway, with colors fly
ing is rather a pretty sight—rather stirring and
inspiring ; and we pull up our tired nag on the
shore to see her pass, and admire the swell she
cuts. Comparitively, however, the steamer
sinks into insignificance, or some other very deep
water, by the side of a well kept, well dressed
woman. There is no rubbing it out ; women are
the ornament, charm, blessing, beauty and bliss
of life, (man's life we mean, of course.) Any
means that can be devised for preserving them
should be publicly made known. They are dif
ferent from any other kind of fruit. You cannot
pickle them. You cannot do them up in sugar
and set them in a cold room, with a paper soaked
in brandy over their mouths. You cannot put
them in cans and seal them up air tight, without
injuring their form and flavor. Now, as men
are so dependent upon women for life's choicest
blessings, a proper mode of preserving them be
comes a matter of grear moment, and we are
sure tlint the public will thank us for an unfail
ing receipt.
Have the feet well protected, then pay the
next attention to the chest. The chest is the
repository of the vital organs. There abide the
heart and lungs. It is from the impressions
made upon these organs through the skin, that
the shiver comes. It is nature's quake—the
alarm bell—at the onset of danger. A woman
nevet shivers from the effect of cold upon her
limbs, or hands, or head ; but let the cold strike
through her clothing on her chest, and off go her
teeth into a chatter, and the whole organism is
in a commotion. One sudden and severe impres
sion of cold upon the chest has slain its tens of
thousands. Therefore, while the feet are well
looked after, never forget the chest. These
points attended to, the natural connectionis of
the dress will supply the rest, and the woman
is ready for the air. Now let her visit her neigh
bors, go shopping, call upon the poor, and walk
for the good of it, or the fun of it.
Keep away from the stove or the Register.
Air that is dry and burnt, more or less charged
with gases evolved by the fuel, is poison. Go
up stairs and make the beds with mittens on.
Fly around the house like mad, and ventilate
the rooms. Don't sit pent up in a single room
with double windows. Fruit will not retain its
full form and flavor iu air-tight cans ; neither
will women. They need air. If the shiver
comes on during these operations, go direcrly
and put on something more about the chest.
Again, do not live in dark rooms. Light fades
the carpet, but it feeds the flower. No living
thing, animal or vcgitable, can enjoy health in
darkness. Light is almost as nessesary as air,
and a brown tan is far preferable, even as a mat
ter of beauty, to a sickly paleness of complexion.
Thus much in regard to the physical means
for preservation. There are moral means no less
important. Every woman should be married to
an excellent man. Marriage, it is true, brings
care and wear, but it is the ring that is worn
that keeps bright, and the watch that lies still
and unwound that gets out of order. The sweet
sympathies evolved in the relations of the family,
the new energies developed by new responsibil
ities, the new compensation for all outlays of
strength, bring about a delightful play of the
heart and intellect, which, in their reaction upon
the body, produces an effect that is nothing less
than preservation. Then there is a higher moral
power than this—one which we speak of soberly
and honestly. No one is completely armed
against the encroaching ills of life—who has in
the heart no place for religion. The calmness,
the patience, and the joy and hope that are in
possession of the woman whose heart is right in
it« highest relation, can never fail to preserve
and heighten every personal power and charm
that he possesses.
There! yoa have the receipt. Some of it is
in sportive form, bnt it is none the less sober
truth. It has Within it the care for many a dis
ease—the preventative for more. It might be
made longer, but when we see its prescriptions
universally adopted, it will be time to bring for
ward the remainder. .
S hooting S tab .—There was a man who,
when the stars were complaisant below, usjed to
rig up a telescope wherewith to study astrono
my at a sixpence a squint.
One night as he was getting ander way I saw
two Irish gentlemen taking an observation of
his movements. Both were policemen.
m Jamey," «aid one, "what in the wurreld is
yon fellow after with his machinely !"
" Whist, ye spalpeen," whispered the other,
"sure and can't ye see that it's an air gun cannon
that he's got. He's after shooting stars, he is."
" Had'nt we better be getting out av the way
thin ?" inquired his friend.
" Sure and it's not us," was the answer.
"Did'nt ye ever hear of shooting stars ?"
By this time the telescope man h 'id arraged
his instrument and squinted through it up at
the stars. The policeman gazed up likewise in
wonder. Just then, by an odd chance, a large
meteor shot down the Bky.
" Bedad, he hit it—he's fetched it down!"
oried both of the paddies in a ■■ breath. "Sure,
and that's-die greatest «hooting I iver saw in
my life ?" Bat a sens» of duty at once prevail
ed, and one of them at once rudely accosted the
men of science.
" Ye'll just stop that now, mister, a▼ yeplase.
The night is dark enough now, plinty, and av
you go on shooting stars at that rate, sorra the
man'li find his way about the strate." Aad the
telescope man had to pick up and beoff.
C amphor ahd S trychnine .—The beneficial
effects of camphor, as an antidote to strychnine,
are illustrated in a case reported by Dr.. Tewk
esbury, of Portland, Main. It appears that a
hoy was seised with eoavalsioas, and it was as
certained that be had just eaten a biscuit, pick
ed up at the door of an eating house, that was
made Ihr the purpose of killing rata, and eon
tained about «ne and * half graim of strych
nine. The boy 's spams were so severe that im T
mediate death was inevitable, though all the
osaal remedies ww* wsérted to. Camphor
eould ootbe ietredaeeilinto the stomach on ac
count of the continued lockjaw. Accordingly
•trong injections ef camphor were need, and
the body immersed ia a hoteampbor bath, and
» a Ifcw boart the boy was comparatively well.

"Little Giant" In Kentucky.
The undersigned selected committee of judges
of the Bourbon County Agribultural Society, to deter
mine the relative merits (under rules presented for their gui
dance) of the Corn and Cob Mills of Messrs. Scott ft Hedges,
of Cincinnati, named the " Little Giant," and of Messrs. Dou
glass, Smith * Co., of Zanesvllle, Ohio, named the " Excel
sior Young America," had trial made of said mills at Paris.
Ky., on the 5th and 6th of May, 1S5C. The " Little Giant "
in 100 revolutions ground 12,1^ bushels of meal, at an aver
age draft of 460 lbs. dranometer. The "Toung America"
bushels at an average draught of 190 lbs. A half bushel
of the meal of each mill was run through seives No. 4 and 6 ;
the quantity of cob left in the No. 4 seire by the " Toung
America " was double that of the "Little Giant," while the
meal of the latter was of more uniform Oneness than that of
the former. Though the mills are of equal diameter (20
inches) thegrinding surface in the " Little Giant" is sup
posed to be live times greater than in Ihe " Toung America."
these tests and an examination of the construction of the
mills, led the committee to the opinion that the " Little Gi
ant " Is the superior mill, best adapted to the uses of the far
mer, and they therefore award to Messrs. Scott ft Hedges
the two silver goblets.

To the Stock-Feeders of Southern Louisiana:
Enough has been said and proved, to convince the most
incredulous, of the utility of the 44 Little Giant" Cora and
Cob MM.
And now when the prospect of a crop of cane Is so small,
it becomes the more important that you should have one of
those cheap mills. Grind all yotx corn, cob and all, feed it
in no other way, and rely upon It, you will rarely loose mule
or horse—when from the feedhu of unground cor n y ou
would loose twenty— bot will keep healthy, f*t and strong
on one third less corn. Consequently a season like this,
your gain in saving stock ; the increased value from this
style of feeding, and the sating of grain will compensate
ouite an item toward the deficiency In other crops.
