"Oh! such a disgrace ! I have opened
one of your letters, supposing it to ho mi
dressed to myself. Certainly it looked
Inore like Mrs. than Mr.”
“Is that all? What harm can there he
in a wife opening her husband's letters?”
“But the contents ! Such a disgrace!”
"What! has any one dared to write me
a letter unfit for my wife to rend?”
"Oh! no. It is couched in the most
chaste language; but tint disgrace!”
The husband eagerly caught up the let

that had been the cause of nearly break

8fiS“Tho New York Express says:
Among the novelties recently introduced
in Indies apparel, is a new article of sus
penders. They bear resemblance to those
worn by gentlemen, except that they are
made of delicate, white elastic fabric, with
frilled edge about one inch wide, and are
attached to the skirt by buttons in like
manner. We doubt not this invention
will be generally adopted with a view to
relieve the waist of the unlimited burden,
which such habiliments necessarily pro
duce. Reason and experience teach us
that the old and absurd method, while fol
lowed, impairs the health, impedes loco
motion, and tends to ill health.
