Very Embarrassing on Both Sides. ft U strange what odd mistakes happen some femes when ladies are going shopping. A nice, precise Bid bachelor, the Tory pink of politeness; and essence of dignified propriety, is the owner of the principal "dry goods" emporium of one of our large inland villages. He regard ladies aa "fearful and wonderful" ia a little afraid of them, to confess the truth, and, an the saying roea, wouldn't touch one of them with a ten pjtJl pole. The only semblance that he tolerates is in the shape of "dummies," of which he has two or three, for the appropriate display of lars. shawls, bonnets and dresses. Coming out of kit Inner room, the other day, in great haste, he mw, as he iniagined, one of these figures stand ing directly in nU fo'iiy, and he very iinporcmo fuously picked it up, round the waist, and swung It to one side. Conceive hi feelings, when a voice from under a bonnet squeaked out: "Here! what are you doing f I'll tell my husband I" Unfortunately, it was a fair cuntomcr, and not it lay figure, whom lie had treated ho unesvalier ly. "Excuse mc, madum. I thought you were k dummy I" gasped the luckless mortal, retreat ing bf&uhic-ssly- towards his room, as the only iractical refuge. Imagine his horror imagine he lady's trepidation imagine the irrepressible fciggliug f the feminine shoppers who had wit nessed tho whole Kccne I Altogether, it ns ra ther a disagreeable predicament for an old bach elor to get liil fcorty Gun-Scows for the Confederate States of America.

Twenty bf these scows aro to bo delivered on or before th 31st of next July and tho balance by the end of October.

Thk Wat to Fix It. Whenever the South ern States arrange their Government and Con Stitjtion exactly to suit themselves, it will, doubtless; suit every Democrat and liberal man of the North. We enrtf not irl what manner they shield their HtfhU to property in negroes tare not what may be their views of the African race, or what they fhgraft on our present Con stitution to protect themselves in full and undis turbed possession of this class of property. When this is completed and the South are satis fled with it, then wo shall advocate this and other Northern States joining tho Southern t'on- tederacy.

I was sent for by him. - I speak what I know. He is vain, weak, peurile, hypocritical, without man ners, without social grace, and as he talks to you, punches his list under your ribs. He swears equal to Uncle Toby, and in every par ticular, morally and mentally, t have lost all respect for him. He is surrounded by a set of toad-eaters and bottle-holders, and did not know what the Adams amendment was untd I told him. tn addition to this, I am perfectly satisfi ed he is an abolitionist of th Lovejoy and Sum ner, type. , . . Such is your God, Oh I Israeli -a The Perfect Woman. Edmund Burke, tlie great British brator and statesman, thus describes the pcrtect woman : A perfect woman is handsome but if s not a beauty arising from the features, from complex ion, or from shape. She has all three in high degree, but it is not by these that she touches the heart it is all that sweetness of temper, benevolence, innocence, aiid sensibility which a face can express that forms nor beauty. She has a face that just rouses your attention at first sight; it grows upon vou every moment, and you wonder tlmt it did not more than raise at tontion ut first. Ilor eyes have a mild light, hut they awe when she pleases, they command, like a good man out of office, not by authority, but by virtue. Her statuo is not tall, she is riot made, to he tho admiration of cvct;y one. She has th firmness that does not exclude delicacy ajtthe softness that docs not imply weakness. Her vrff-cis soft, low, musical, not formed to rule iifjiilblic assemblies,, hut to charm those who ran distinguish company from a crowd ; it has its advantage; you must como closo to .hear it. To describe her body, describe hor mind; ono is tho transcript of the other. Her understanding is not shown in the variety of matter it exerts itself upon, but the goodness of the choice she makes. Her politeness Hows rather from natural disposition to oblige tluiu nnv rules on that ob ject and therefore never fails to strike those who understand good breeding and those who do noL A (ioot) Word to the Ladies. Some of the pnpcrs nru loot uriiiff women upon cxtniv ngnnoe in dress, nml advising thorn to re trench, especially during the present finan cial Uifliitilty. iKuilitlusa there are many cases of unwnirHiitHhlo extravagance in this way; but d people over consider tlmt two or three glasses of hranily and half a dozen rciili:is indulged ill daily by ii tuari, to say nothing of five, and ten dollar dinners, amount to more in a year than would ho TjitirJ to dress a woman up to tho full requirements of fashion!

' Tim Intelligknckk will not be the organ of any man, or of any clique or combination of individual; but it will endeavor fuithfully to represent the views and sentiments of the community of Oxford and La fayette county, and to uphold and foster all tlie great interests educational, agricultural, material, social and moral with which the highest welfare of our peo pie is identified: Tho fundamental doctrines of the State Righi school of Democracy will oim-titute the guidea by which the political course of the paper will be con trolled; and while the IsTEi.ufiKM i:r will sustain Southern institutions, and the cause of the South, with energy and real, it will do so calmly, and only by rea son and argument remembering that there ia a teal which "is not according to know ledge," and whoso only weapons are empty declamation and appeals to popular ignorance, passion, and prejudice. It will earnest! ysupport the principles andorgnnization of tic Democratic party ; but, at the fnme time, it will be courteous to those of our fcllow-citizcna who aro po litically opposed to it ; nor Will it descend, la any case, to personal abuse and vilification.
