Nothing can be more absurd. Does a man put oil learning a business till it is linw.fori him self? Even, therefore, Where a daughter has to learn some trade by which to sup port herself while single, should bo' taught the duties of a wife, because ihe chances are that she will some day, bo marri ed.

Deeper than it lie other qu ili u-s. qui e. i.itlispensible, and which ate s ill irior uece? ?a y ' to a hus baa.ls happiuess, or.eveir a wife's. L would consurao to i much space fo; us to enumerate them all, but we may um f'tera up by saying; that daughters Should;. bo IP1LYMOUTM, taught to bo womanly. Tho tendency of that education which disciplines a girl to depcud on herself entirely, 'or to battle with tho world,' according to the popular form, is to- render her so far, or the less feminine; and if nature did not do something to counteract this proclivity, if women gener ally were not, because of their physical, moral and ,mntal organization, womanly and not mannish, the evil world would be worse thaa i is. In the r-xis ini; state of sooiy. especi il!y m great ci ies, there im?! be women who will have a lit oppor tunity to marry; but lha is i o leason why they sltould not be made as famiuine a a mo.her'rt influence and example can render them. And farther, .ss no mother has a tight to pie-supp.se that her daughter will never marry, she has no riglit Ux educate her in a way that will render her mariiage les-, likely. For a truly womanly woman has much the best chauoe of being loved ey a truly worthy man. The ordination of nature has made a tender, aflVctiopate, sympathising, cheerful, patient, unselfish female more likely to attract strong, earnest, heroic men. than one of a ditlerent stamp. To ar"ue that tl.isouht not to be, that man nish females are vastly more noble crea tures, is simply preposieious. Men hve, by a line insti'.ict, which generally -leads them a:ight. thai is, when they love in the pure sense of that term, and they would love of.ener in that sense, if woman were truer Io that ideal womanhood, which even the lost reverence and acknowledge. The best dower a mother can iiive her dau'h- ter, is ihe dower of uei feet womanliness. It will b'.1 at once a protection agai.is'. the ivi r.is, an 1 an a'.tra-ui hi .o t!e ptue.

We peak,, not as the advocates of shivery, but as the ad vocates of equal Justice to 11 that one portion of tl.e citizens of our States, should enjoy their sovereign rights, as may best accord with tl eir vi-'ws of what is proper and rrquisite for their welfare, equally, and with as much freedom of ac.ioti as the citizens of another, and more favored por tion of the Ameiican Union, in their gi gantic strides of prosperous enterprise. If we, at the North, are more favored and for tunate than those at the South, let us study to be content with our favored condition, and make ourselves happy in the enjoyment of it. We have been led to the above remarks, fiom a conviction of duty we owe to our readers there are so many subtle publica tions which come under their notice, taint ed with fanaticism, upon the subject" of slavery, that we recommend that they should ever cautiously guard against thoe rank ab-li ion statements o fieqi?e:iilv ut tered in those rabid aboli ilion sheei scat tered 'broa least ove r the countrythey are mischievous in iheir purpose, and cannot fiil to prove greatly detrimental tothe jwaeeful continuance f our beloved Union. Our p iper js -neutral, we are conservative in pt t it;iplet and would to Go l ihat.aH ihe American people were governed more by tuoso considerations ior mu general goou which would moko them all a conservative people. As a neutral paper, we feel it a right to protest against the abuse of privi lege,; a3 so imprudently manifested in the vehement writings of those crazed brained abolition advocates. Wo will ever warmly contend for pre- seiving, as sacred to freedom, all our wes tern and northern territories, now exempt from the blight of Slavery let ns all res olutely unite to prevent the extension of the bonds of slavery into them and wiih that, our dut is fulfilled as respects that vexed subject.

There is a p itit beyond which no peo ple will be goaded, without revolution and war; to thai point are the indiscreet and reckless '"agitators" hastening by their in sane course. Let every good citizen re flect and consider of this, and fearlessly strive to check the mad f jlly of the dem.v gogueufiV; keep a fithful watch for the preservation of the Union.

All must realize that this disparity has a cause or causes; and f;w will deny that this cause or causes must be sought, ,t i kvist in p irt, in our dietetic customs and ha'jits. We appeal to our seniors in sup port of our assertion that the prevalence of Dysnensia among us is a modern phe- nomenon. Our Revolutionary ancestors scaicely knew this disease even by name; and it was quite rare among our people in moderate circumstances even forty years ago. Need we say more on this head? II.

The family whose ili-own up daughters feit ia the pas lor and leave tho eookinir t the tender mercies of a green emigrant, may not realize thatthose daughters arv missing opportunities which they will one day wish' they hid improved; but we dare whisper it very loudly in iheir ears, at whatever risk to our own.

Tribune. Two Egg Stories. A friend sends us the following story, which, though old, is good, and will bear repetition: One of our coast packets (which we will not say) was hailed on her downward trip to this city by an old I idy, standing near a convenient landing, who gaVb the usual signal to round to ami take on a passenger. The boat -was accordingly headed to shore, the engine plopped, ihe plank run out, and the ancient maiden, wiih maiy signs cf trepidation, tottred aboard. Her first que ry was; . '.'You haitit none on you seen tho cap'n round here, have ye?7 The "cap'n" was pointed out to her. She hobbled up towards him, gave him a deeply reverential look over the rim o her silver-bowed spectacles, and the foflowing dialogue ensued: . . . . "lie you -cap'n of this boat?" "Yes-, madam.' v "Be you gwino down to Orleans?" "That is our present Intention, mad- am. "Well, cap'n," (producing a small bun dle from under her shawl,) "here's eleving eggs, and I want you to trade .'em off for me in Orleans, and get me one 'spool of tnreaa:one SKein oi sus, anu ine rest in beeswax. r And cap'n would ye be kind enough lo wait a little mir.nit. You see the 'old .hen is orr the nest .low, and I want orfully to get another egg lo make Up the dozen."' This is hardly better than the following, which we declare upon an afHIavit to be s'.tie.ly true: ' , ' - . An "oi I fallow away tip iu."Varmount," had longbeoa importuued by , Iiis wife to buy a pound of white loaf sugar, just for company. He had uniformly refused, on tho ground that it was sheer extravagancy and he could not tolerate it.

Tho Origin of Wheat. It is a fact not generally known, that the origin of wheat and other cereata, is in volved obscurity, for the old notion that it is indigenous in Central Asia, that starting point of tho researches of modern botanists. History itifm ras us that when our forefa thers began to cultivate tho gooseberry, currant, asparagus, beet root and strawber ry; but is silent as to when wheat, rye, bar ley, beans, maizs, cucumbers and melons wen known only as indigenous plants. Nowhere do the cereals exist as native; no where have they a tendency to run wild. II they were not preserved by human la bor, tliey would apparautly perish togeth er. In a late number cf ihs Edinburgh Re view, an able paper is devoted to discuss ing the cereals.especially wheat. The writer states that there are two theories upon the subject. One considers races of plants to be immutable, and holds, therefore, that wheat existed, nay, may still exist, indi?i nously, somewhere. The other maintains that the cereals, r.3 at present known, has been devel oped by cul iva i on. This is tl p opinion hld by tho writer ia the Review, who even speciiies the particular plant from which wh 'at has originated; a grass grow ing wild on the Mediterranean, and known to bo anists by ihe name of icgilops. In confirmation of this hypothesis may be adduced the fact, that, whenever the early history of the cultivation of a specL's is known,, it is that man has first applied to his own use a plant growing wild about him. He discovered some berry, for ex ample, whosj taste he likes; and in order to have it more plentifully, begins to cul tivate it; the cultivated plan, impioves upon the best specimens; and at last a berry b obtained, so superior to tho one he first found growing wild, that it could not be po:sib!e to trace its otigin, if the process h is not taken place under his own observa tion. Ana'agus to ihis. it is fair to pre sume, l as Leen the oritjin of wheat. In ftct, a Fsench bo'attist, reasoning in this way, and observing many striking points of resemblance between the ajgilops and wheat, undertook to develop the latter f.om ih former, and by saving, from year to ye.ir. the seed from such plants as appeared t oapp otch nearer to i.s object, actually sueceedeJ in h's ohj ;ct. The plant thus obt lined, s ill continues to be cultiva ted, both by him an 1 by others, and to yield real, b-'tna f'-h wheat. The opponents of the development there of, however, maintain that ihe plant on which this exp yiment.Iist. worked, was an acci lental hybii l. orcros. between the lollops and wheat growing in adjacent fields. In favor of this view, they adduce th.e fact that by such a crossing, artincial- ly condutrted. similar results have bon produced. On the other hand, natural hy brids, between grasse, are as yet unknown to botanists. Moreover when different sorts of wheat arc grown together,, they never cross. A still more conclusive proof is tin fact that hybrids are rarely maintained beyond th.e second generation without an infusion cf new vi:or frcm the parent tock, in which case a gradual assimula tion to the latter occurs. Hence, if the ex periment which we have quoted, had ori ginated in a natural cross between the aigi lops and wheat, th.e hybrid would either have perished after a year or two, or have returned to its original .ype. It is probable, therefore, that wheat nev er existed wild, but has been developed by cultivation from a rude plant. The Edin burgh Reviewer, after reviewing the ques tion in every aspect, comes to this opinion at last, and says nothing can shake his conviction, unless wheat should bo found really growing wild in some ravino of Ceu tral Asia.

Prof. Sontag. aatronoasi to th "'.Gria noil Expedi.iou," ia his narrative says: "As the land adjacent to ihe Pole, is All terra incognita, it is impossible to eay what additions to the stores of natural science a visitor to these regions might be abb to mako.

It may be presumed, however, that &n open sea would be, i;i several respects, the most disidventageous. In the first place, it would, in all probability be so deep that thj ship would be unable tj anchor; and tho current might be too strong to permit her to keep stationary loug enough to make ac curate observations. In the second place, if she could not ruamtniii her position steadily at on point, the commander would experience a new embarrassment, viz: aa every meridian must extend southwardly, ho would b? npt to lese that on which ho approached the Pole, and consequently, l:o would be at a l:zz lew tt? shapo big ccurso homewarl.

Thus, not only to the eye, but als for ihe practical purpose of ob taining the time by astronomical observa tions, the sun would appear thoughout the twenty-four hours neither to liee nor fail, but to desctibe a circle round the heavens pirallel with the horizon. Thereto:, thi usil mode of ascertaining the time would utterly fail; and, indeed, however startling may be the .assertion, it is nevertheless trui that time, or tho natural distinction of riot, would be no more. Tills will appear freni the consideiation that the idea of apparent tira refr3 only to the pariicuhr meiidinn on which an observer happens tobe placed, and is marked or determined only by thi distance cf the sun, or ether heavenly body, from that meridian.
