The boldneea of Md de Freycinet, the Frecsah Milnister of Ppblic Works, chal leage the attenltion of the world, end hie rsaebme do not pass nuder the consequent susatiny without severe criticism. It is his design to expend large sumsl of money is the im~provecment of the varlona harbors ef th. country, bny up bankruopt raliroeids awl sogatrlet new lines of various gauges Se-uIt the capacities of the districts through which they run, until every higlh wayn has a t·ramwa laid uopn it for car drtiven by etoaml power. It is i Oo cover Freoe with a network of these cheap lines, which will tend to the development of the couatry and draw their support from the) truffe which they sfacilitate. To carry out the Milnister's plans will require an annual expenditure of 500000,0000 france for ten years, or in round numbers, about one thonuand million of dollars. For the year 1877 the ordinary service of the public works cost 94,184,895 francs and the extraordinary service 80, 000,000-about one-third of the annual estimates for the next decade. What seems to astonish everybody about such a project is the vastness of the expendituore; for the interference of Government in rail wary control is no new thnlog Ia Europe, and the duty of Government touching the improvement of harbors is acknowledged everywhege. It Is so unusual a thing to mse a natia lalog aside a large share of its revenues for the permanent good of dhe country for the erection of great works, for the advantage of its people lq the arts of peace, that the act looks like madneess. That France should spend every year for the army an amount equal to the sum now to be set apart for publio improvements is taken as a matter of course; that she should have an average annual expenditure of fye times that amonot is not looked upon as so unreason able as the scheme to divert a fifth to Is creasing the Axed capital of the nation. It is only when such a comparison is forced upon as that we realise the fall danger to modern civilisation that lies in vast poor debts and standing armies. France con templates spending a thousand millions of dollars on publie works in ten years, and meno shako their heads over the scheme and-predict-that nebe anot - afford -to risk such an experiment, yet the prospects are that she wall have to spend an equal suom in that time to keep herself in readiness to i fight her neighbors, and that is held to be a highly reasonable if somewhat costly precaution. She had to pay that amount as a war indemnity to Germany, and about as macih more for the cost of the war and foreign occupation from 1870 to 1873. Ten years of interest on her public debt would hb more than double the sum. If, there fore, in tih expenditure of a thousand mil lion of dollars in ten years for public 1m provements the Administration of Francer is overstepping the tree functions of a government, fostering dangerous tempta d tione to dishonesty and interfering with I the natural development of the country, what can be said of the civilization which a compels not only her but the other nations o of Eurepe to make far greater expenditures I merely for protection against each other'sd rapacity without in the esd securing safe-r tyt Paternalism in governmentcannotbee exercised over the nourishment of vast t armies of conscripted citizons without ex tending to other matters than war and foe tering great hordes of officils in every de- I partment of administration. The course I of M. de Freycinet is doubtless the result a of a praiseworthy desire to be as active and a extravagant as the War Minister. It is a a curious ftact, as illustrating the tendencies e of the times, that this sum of one thousand millions to be expended by France in pub. I lito works is about one-half the whole cost of our own government from 1789, to 1281. It is a more startling fact, illustrating the rapidity with which war, war debts and extranagance ran away with money, that our public expenditures since 1861 have amounted to nearly fourteen thousand mil lions. Of course, the opponents of M. de Frey uinet's scheme may urge that the military expenditure is a matter of vital necessity to France, whereas his public works can he dispensed with, and quote against him the old story of how Solon said to Crisns when that monarch showed him his riches: "If any man come that hath better iron than Son, lie will be master of all this gina" to the nrgarulineesof germles when the demand is for a work of consti no tion, compared with their profusion when called on to provide means of destruction, nevertheless all rds a strange and instruc tive contrast. MARRIAGE ENGAGEMENTS A ND THEIR DUTIES. BY LADY iBL.ANCHEI MURPHY. In old times, and in some places, even in these times, an engagement, or, as the beautiful old phrase has it, a betrothal, was and is only one degree less sacred than marriage. In the South of Europe it is still fenced in by all sorts of formalities, which in many cases are only formalities, and often prove as annoying in practice as they are objectionable in theory. Stall that is only saying what is true of every remnant of old customs. It is sure, when pushed into a state of society whose grad nal changes are in reality undermining its old authority without yet openly challeng ing it, to appear awkward, and. under certain circumstances, to work stiffly, and even cruelly. Yet the principle presented by these dying but tenacious customs, is a sound one, and remains a model to such nations and societies as have gone too far on the opposite "tack." England and America claim to have enfranchised woman in this particular; to have made the carrying out or breaking of a marriage engagement as much, practically, a matter of choice with her, as the person of the lover to whom she has engaged herself. There is much nooonscious aignifiance in the gradual disuse of the word betrotbal, and the setting in its place of the word en gagement. The former meant the solemn giving of a promise-the fealty, the loyalty, sworn to a lord; the latter is only an adaptation of a businese term common to many other barg ins, a contract between equals, a worldly arrangement which either party is tacitly entitled to break, and to beconsdered honest in breaking, if due warning be given, or compensation made. Some people may think this too broadly put; it is only the truth, without the poline wording, which carries out Tallegrand's maxim that language was given to man to hide or disguise his thoughts. The old conception of an engagement was that of an almost indissoluble tie; it involved cer emonies nearly as important and as bind ing as the marriage ceremony: in some cases it sanctioned the giving over of the person of the bride to the careof the bride groom's female relations, who educated her and provided for her as one of their own until the time appointed for the mar riage itself; it threw over the breaking of an engagement an air of importance scarce ly less ttaan that of a divorce, or what was as guilty in theeyes of the medieval world, a breach of honor, a withdrawalof one's plighted word. In some couotries in En rope, much of this spirit is kept up, and in all ranks of life, (for even among the peas antry the formlals are often as rigidly ad bored to as they are among lthe nobility,) the eacredness of a marrisge engagement is hedged in with jealous care. Anglo. Saxons, and, Indeed, all Teutonie nations, began with a different notion of marriage, I not less saecred, and not less widely differ eat from the loose ideas of their desecend ante than those of their LUtin contempora ries, but the seacrednese led them to differ ent conclualone, and their instincts to dif ferent meanos of opolding marriage. The dignitoly and the responsiblity of the Indl vidual wee dwelt upon tather than the boli ness of the tie contracted ; but the object was the same and the result alike. A girl of our times looks upon her en gagement as a triumpb, and her success as the climax of a race; she has won the first prise, shabe has distanced her competitors, she carries things with a high hand. Duties she sees none ; pleasures are the right of her position; she has in her suitor an es oort who cannot rebel, so society has ruled it, and whom she may exhibit as her pet dog for the two or three months duringl which such a speoles of engagement usually lasts She refauses to see that she is boned to de fer to his wishes, to study his tastes, to learn beforehansd to pleaes and to influence him, to find out his pecullarities and fit her own to them, to win him from any bad habit or encourage him in any good Im palse, to belong to him in nearly all things as a wife, to begin her holy relations with I him the moment a word binding their hon- I or and consience has been spoken. On a the contrary, the worldly code reverses all this. In the case, so often and so degrad- I iogly known, of a man of some fortune or position beinog drawn to admire a girl of a leas-wealth orataationthan al how 1 cringing the conduct of the girl and her I parente to the yet unsecured "matcb,"how e slavish her defereoce to his wishes, dis- i likes, opinions, even moral beliefs, how I trembling her watch of his words, how nn- f tiring her assiduity in all things. He is e really her "lord and master" in tbe only c sense in which these words ever imply a degrading connection. In the case ot a c poor man wooing an heiress (or in any of t the intermediate shades ot intercourse c that can be classed under this head) the h same holds good, and, if possible, is still i more reprehensible. But see the change in c the triumphant girl who has brought the a desirable lover to a clear explanation; she t ties him to her apron-strings, and parades d her property in the circle of her acquaint- t ance, to the discomfort and secret shame I of the man. Tie world sanctions this in- b terpretation of an engagement, just as it v does that other shame of society, the cur- a rent version of a honeymoon, or a "pro- s grese" of more or less display and dirsipa- t tion as a preliminary to the duties of a home. An unwiser thing could scarcely 11 be, for if a woman has any Unfortunate e tendencies towards display, the whirl of c life that is crowded into the honeymoon a must needs make the new home at tfirsat b seem insufferably doll; the temptation is ti actually crhel to many young women, and ft should not be offered them. h We most not imagine that we have car ti ried out to its full development the liberty fi in the choice of our mates, to which Englistr law and custom have always tended; the present light method of looking on en gagements is an utter abase; a thing un worthy of our serious, conscientious, strict ancestors, a thing foreign to their teach lug and tradition. It would be a pity to d be restricted by such rules as guide somed foreign nations in their ordinary marriages; it would be a pity even to bind married c women in the matter of property and per sonal sobjection, as the only recently re pealed English laws did; but though we a want a wise liberty and a. protected lati tude, we ought to show ourselves, as a body, worthy of the responsibility given us by this liberty. There are, without doubt, e St the pronoeue V, almost as uJuuJ thou. s e ande of devoted, brave, submisaive, and home-loving wives and mothers of English. speaking races, as there ever were, but the t few who are exceptions are more promi nent than they were, and more likely to mislead and tempt weak minds of their own sex. It is of and to these few that these few words are said. Who can deny that in our times there is a spirit of bravado, of recklessness, of fastness, which tends to loosen rightful ties, to throw off restraints, to overturn barriers, yet not wholly to overstep the boundary between the proper and the improper. But this boundary is set back as far as any decent woman can possibly set it without glaringly compro mising herself. The "improper" is only what the laxest moralist cannot choose but call so, the wise saying that "to the pure all things are pare," is shamelessly twisted into a permission of dangerous en joyment, and an excuse for handling any amount of moral "pitch." The common standard of behavior among young people of marriageable age, and often of mere school children, whose premature flirta tions are one of the most painful signs of the times, is a very low and despicable one. Foolish and aimless task, and very insipid compliments seem the staple of in tercouarse; an introduction among suach beings means, in their minds, only a chance of a weak, make-believe sentimental con nection, in which the succeseasive stages are languishing looks, hinted compliments, an invitation to drive on the part of the man, and one to tea on the part of the woman; reading poetry aloud and sending in a bouquet or a novel. The babble then gen erally barats, and a succession of such bob bles form "life" and "soaiety" as far as anmarried girls are concerned. But worse still happens when at last one of these con nections torns into a serious engagement. The folly which makes such intercourse possible naturally enters into the new re lation, restricting its natare, ignorilg its serlosness, and seconting its duties. This is especially what I want to impress on yonog girls who are engaged or about to be so: they understke duties as soon as they say "yes," and duties not far from those of a wife. An engagement is not a holiday, a time to triumph over one's companiona and to show off a captive man, the slave of one's whims and caprices. No chivalry that ever was, involved the foolish abjectness which engaged girls of this day afect. True, there Is the story of the wnigli who at the command of his wilful lady-love sprang Into an arena full of lions to pick up the glove she had flung among them, but having done her this homage, he - refused to marry the giver of a command so indicative of every quality least estima - ble in woman. From the moment you are engaged, mere pleasure, in the sense of admiration, excitement, and men's society, shonld be a dead letter. You are so solemnly bound and promised; the engagement should have been made without the thought of - the possibility of its being broken, and, therefree, not Ilhtly, not reckleesly not t thins prudeatif, or ambitions motives, not in a harry, and on tshe opur of the mo meat, when "'a lucky bchance" may sugaest it, or a stray circumstance clinchb it. You have made ipso facto, a promise that binds you as much as your fatare marriage vow will, not to flirt with other men, not to orave admiration, or long for show; you have given yourself to one man, your whole faculties, your.talents, if you have say, your resoureas of all kinds; he is no more t our feet, asking for your love, and you have no right to keep himl there, in ight of others, playing at love; the relation is serious and lasting: you. owe him your whole devotioo, attention, and energies. His physical comforts, even, comewithin your province; you arebound to consider him, and minister to blm, sym pathise with him, advise him, discuss future plans of home life, rationally and religiously; in a word, act as bhis chose partner, not as his six weeks' empress. I know many will demur to this;l they will try to oppose to it the seemiagly fair ar gument that, since "there is many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip," you may be giving hipl a hold on yoa.which the future may not sanction. I can only say sech should not be the case. But even if, after i an engagement is properly entered into, circumatances dissolve it, or the parties to it deem it for their mutual happiness to part before it is too late, still the good effect of the behavior I have recommended will remain with each. The man will be less likely to become a woman-hater; he will have reason to reverence womankind, and understand its deeper and better side; whilethewoma will have nothlog to re proach herself with, and we know that a clear conscience is productive of a sound mind. Many of the characters produced in men and women by this fruitful excure for bad temper, called "disappointment in early life," are due much more to the cir cumstances of the brief period of their en gagement, than to the actual breaking off of the tie. The common kind of engage ment, indeed, aboews a very unlovely side of woman's nature; a side which is, we hope, artificially induced by fashion, and happily blotted out, later on, by the real nature of an average woman. But it can not be denied that such an experience of ten carries with it the elements of its own destruootion, and in its destruction is apt to teach a man bitter, if deceptive, lessons. Let young women try a nobler plan of behavior: let them show the material of womanhood, wifehood, matronhood, to the man who has staked his honor in this world, and his salvation in the next, on them, and we shall have fewer scandals in married life, fewer separations and wrang lhugs, fewer secretly unhappy homes, few er uncomfortable, though respectable, couples. Let us remember that we women are not puppets, meant to dance a few hours on the stage of society, bat Chris tians meant to influence for good, and from the jirst hour of our intercourse with him, a man in whom are all the possibili ties of a saint, a citisen, a patriot, and a father.-Boston Pilot. LOVE MELODIES IN CHURCH, Boffalo Catholio Union. We are not of those who would exclude from the House of God all music which does not meet the approval of the rigid Cmecilian school. Many compositions which come most decidedly under the head of fig ured music are intensely devotional written exptessly for the sacred words whose spirit-be it penitence or triumph, entreaty or thankagiving--.they render as faithfully as human genius, faith-inspired, can. We listen and our hearts are lifted up The voice of every trifling or unworthy emotion is stilled. All that is best and truest in our complex nature is finoding meet expression. We forget for a time the vexing carea of mortal life, and seem to hear faint. sweet echoes of the songs of which the Well-Beloved spake. But not all the music rendered by voice or organ within consecrated walls is thus capable of brioging the wayward soul into sweet accord with the spirit of religion. We have beard sacred words warbled to impassioned melodies which brought before the eyes the stage instead of the altar, and to the lips other words than the broken utterances of a contrite heart. Nobis quoque peccatoribus, murmors the priest at the altar. Sweetly, tenderly, with the pathos of suppressed passion, sounds from the organ the melody of a song of farewell-of "broken hearts," and that constancy so common in song and story which cannot be affected by -'time or change," etc. Farewell, asurely, to any prayerful _ thought while those siren tones are singing away the heart's devotion. Let as cherish the glorious triamphe of musical genius which have been achieved for God and by the children of the Church. But is it well that the suggestive melodies of love songs should be heard from our choirs? Too easily, even under ciruoom stances most favorable to devotion, are mind and heart diverted from the thought of God. A well-to-do undertaker of San Francis oo owned a small house and lot in a block that was coveted by one of the Pacifo coast millionaires, who had built a palace there and wanted all the contiguons land for a garden. He sacceeded in getting all ex cept the undertaker's property, which pro jected into the very heart of his grounds, and which its owner would not part with at what the millionaire considered a fair price. The latter, therefore, erected a high I fence, said to be the loftiest in America, enclosing the obstinate undertaker's prop ty on three sides, and depriving it almost entirely of snnshine. The undertaker tralped vines to grow up the wooden walls, aud' tood it coolly for a year or two. Now, at lias, his patience has given out. A few weeks-ago he had his bouse removed bodily to another part of the city, and, obstinate as ever, is about to put up a very tower of Babel. The style of the proposed bailding, it is said, will be plain and substantial for the irst fiv stories, but the remainder of Ithe towering ediflce, after rising above the fence, will esent a commiogling of re naissance, G thic, and Babylonian archi tecture, surm nnted with a section of Chi nese pagoda. e declines to say to what nses he propos putting this remarkable edilice; but it id belierod that the first and paramount use ill be to torment the hitherto triumph ut millionaire.
