Washington society f lias ' lost one of its , brightest ornsmcnts by tho sudden and unliap 1 py disruption of the political ' rclatk,as between the States of the Union. Mrs. Davis, the wife of the President of tho Confederate States of the South, was for many years ac knowledged at our National Capital as one of the representative women of the land as one of those who give shape to the character of Amer ican womanhood, and present to the attention and admiration of the educated and well-bred of other countries, its peculiar characteristics of grace, temflrnoss ami dignity. Uniting to tho tastes and education of a well-born lady a most marked degree of personal character and strength of judgment, Mrs. Davis is singularly fitted to be the wife of a public man, and to mix in the society of a cap'tul and hnro in the duties and responsibilities pertaining to high station, and we cannot but regret that the influ ence and example of such a woman have pass ed away from a spit which we must still recog nise as the sent of our government and the scene of its highest triumph, political and social. In saying thus much, however, we cannot but congratulate the now government in having a lady so peculiarly tjiuilificd to preside over and exercise the ameniliet of tlieir first Presidential household, nnd particularly one who embodies in so marked a manner the lofty elements of the Southern feminine character. There is one peculiar trait in Mrs. Pnvis's nature that hits attracted thcntteiitioit f her friends, and which, more than any other, gives evidence of woman ly heroism tlint is, an instinctive and irrepress ible hatred of meanness ami hypocrisy iu either public or private life. She hits the courage, too, to show her feelings, and to boldly and earn estly rebuke any exhibition of these cowardly and degrading qualities, and all this without de parting from tho sphere of her duties or forfeit ing her character for modest grace and true wo manly !cariii!. VY ray,' therefore, ngnin, that we cordially congratulate tho governtr ent of tho Confederate S'atcs in the happy circumstance of their having in tlie wife of their Chief Mag istrate a lady so worthy of the station, and so eminently qualified, in a social sense, to give eclat and character to their new work. We have already said that Southern manhood is, we are convinced, the highest form that humanity ran present, nnd we can only add that, if Mrs. President Davis be a fair type of Southern wo manhood, (and no doubt "Sparta has a thou sand good as she,") the world may search in vain for loftier and nobler representatives of that sex which is its cliicfest crown and bless ing. An Old Adage Keiuted. "When poverty comes in at the door, love flies out at tho window." So sap the adage, and they expect us to believe it Out upon such simplicity. No man nor woman but will boldly contradict it, whenever and wherever they hear it spoken. If there ever existed love realj pure, hctrt-felt love in tho heart of any mortal, think yon that 'the loss of a few luxuries, or the want of a few comforts former ly enjoyed, could banish this love from the heart, or deprive it of the tender and earnest confidence and faith which had ever been its rerylife? -Would not poverty rather be the Beans of strengthening and refreshing tho feel ings of making the words and actions more kind and tender t would it not rather be the means of making the wholo life more devoted ! There are certain cases, we confess, which might, in some case, justify the proverb : but it ought to read, "When poverty conies In at the door, teeming love flies out at the window." We, all know there is a vast difference between seeming and true love. How vcry, very many things teem to It, nnd yet are not .And this poverty is the real test, the real trial of love, -We once knew a young lady who was vainly wooed for years by a rich man. She was very beautiful, but she was also very proud. She never loved him truly until poverty fell heavily upon htm. And then he came no more to her ; he dared not seek her presence. Yet she sought bim; and there, in his own humble home, ac cepted the love which she had refused when he was owner of a stately one. ' ' ' I Some people said she had no "proper pride, and that she was "throwing herself away ;" but those who knew her better said she had done nobly and well ; and so she had. Never before bad she looked so beautiful as when she stood by ber husband's side in their plain little home, and spoke of their flitnre. And in after years, when, y their nnited labors, wealth had once more returned to their dwcll- wig, the same sweet expression still rested on ber features; but tlie $- was all .gone, and in its place there was a iook of soft contentment which " proclaimed more plainly than "words could have done, that "poverty can never put lore to flight, but that love must ever be exalt ed'and purified by honest poverty V '.' t 1 ' And so it is. Why, then, should we not be lieve it? Even the "belief will do us good. Southern Family Jovrnnl. ' V,rrrrn T? it Tp Take a tisht barrel. with one head out Tour a couple of pails of . , .
