A lady in our namesake town, Win- j
chaster, Virginia, has recently been j
presented with a noveltj', imported ,
from Geneva, in tho sh:i pe of a musi- j
cal bed, which receives the weary j
Ihody and immediately " laps it in Ely- j
,-siuni." It is bo constructed that, by ;
jneans of hidden mechanism, a press-'
ure tpyji the bed causes a soft and j
gentle air of Auber to be played,
which continues long enough to lull j
.the most wakeful to sleep. At the
head is a clock, the hand of which
.being placed at tho hour the sleeper
wishes to rise, when the hour arrives,
the bed plays a march of Spontoul, or
some other thunder and lightning
tomp&scr, with drums and cymbals,
and, in short, with jioise enough to
.rouse the seven sleepers.
DISTRESSING CALAMITY.
The Dallas Herald, published at
Dallas, Texas, speaks of very heavy I
.rains that have fallen in that State
lately. It says that a gentleman liv-J
jng very near West Fork, on returning j
home during the heavy rain that was i
Jailing, found his hoiii-c was being j
rapidly surrounded with tho flood that
was rushing down the low lands bor-
deringon the stream. lie had a wife j
and seven children took two of them !
on his shoulders and carried them over j
the water to a shed on the premises, j
placed them upon it, and started back
for the other children and his wile.
He had not gone far, when a cry from
the shed, drew his attention; he looked
back, and discovered it floating oil"
with his two children on ;t. lie rush
ed after it and after following it nearly
half a mile succeeded in placing his
children upon a place of safety.
A'ight was rapidly coining on, and
he returned to save his wife and chil

Some ok tub Uses op Marriage.
One of the London Magazines has the
following sensible observations upon
the economy nf matrimony:
In return for your wife from what a
complicated slavery does she deliver
you. Only make the enumeration.
From the slavery of baseness: If you
Siave happiness beside your hearth,
you will not go in the evening to
jcourt love under the smoky lamps of
a dancing-room, and to find drunUen
pss in the street. From the slavery
pf weakness: You will not drag your
jimbs along like your sad acipiain-j
tancc, that pale and worn out, bloated
young old man. From the slavery ol !
fuelancholy: Ho who is strong and
locs a man's work he who goes out
to labor and leaves at home a cherish
ed soul who loves him will from that
sole circumstance have a cheerful
heart and bo merry all day. From a
slavery of money: Treasure this very
pxact Arithmetical maxim. Two
persons spend less than one." Many
bachelors remain as they are, in
alarm at the expense of married life,
but who spend infinitely more. They
live very dearly at the cafe and restau
rateur's, very dearly at the theatre.
Tho Havana cigar, alone, smoked all
day is an outlay of itself. Hut if
your wife has no female friends whose
rivalry troubles her and excites her
to dress, she spends nothing. She re
duces all your expenses to such a de
gree tbatlbe calculation just given is
anything but just. It should have
been "four people spend less than
one." When a marriage is roasona
hie, contracted with loresight, when
the family doc not increase too fast, a
wife, far from being an obst iclo to
liberty or movement, is on tho contra
ry its" natural and essential condition.
Why does the Englishman emigrate
so easily, and so beneficially for Eng
land herself? Because ' his wife fol
lows him. Except in devouring cli
mates, sucli as India, it may be asser
ted that the English woman has sown
tho whol ) earth with solid English
colonies. The forco of Family lias
created the force and tho greatness of
the country. With a good wife and
a good trade a young man is free; free
to leave his home or free to remain.
It must be a trade, and not an art or
luxury. Have such an art into the
bargain if you like; but the lust nec
essity is to be master of one of the
arts that are useful to all. The man
who loves and wishes to maintain his
wile, will hardly waste his lime in
drawing tho linn between art and
trade; a lino which is fictitious in re
ality. We cannot see that tho major
ity of trades, if traced to their princi
ple, are real branches of an art. The
boot maker and the tailor's trades
make a close approach to sculpture.
A tailor who appreciates, models, and
rectifies nature, is worth three classic
sculptors.

A Washington letter to the Cleveland
National says:
Mrs. Southworth, the authoress,
who resides in the adjoining city of
Georgetown, will sail in the next
steamer to make a tour to Europe.
Mrs. S. has by her talents made a
handsome fortune. Her husband, a
worthless scamp, left her some three?
vears since, Willi three children, am
quit c destitute but out of this cloud
came the silver lining which hits de
veloped her brilliant taste, and been

dark complexion, with brilliant eyes;
dresses rather oddly as regards colors,
and possesses much nervous energy,

THE TWO NAl'OLEONS.
Napoleon I was but twenty-six
years of age when appointed to the
command of the army of Italy, lie
fore he had entered upon his twenly
seventh he had won tho battles of
Monte Noite, Millcssimimo and Mon
dovi; forced the terrible passage ol
tho bridge ol Lodi; entered Milan in
triumph: seized upon the great iron
crown of hombardy, though not yet
crowned; driven tho Austrians out of
Mantua; beaten the Tyrol Army of!
Wurmser at Castiglione; forces J'ar-1
ma, Mudena, Koine, and even Naples, j
into submission; in fine, reduced all
Italy, from the Alps to the Palpal do-!
minions, under his swav And his'
army numbered but .'15.000 men, ami
those poorly clothed and badly provi
sioned. Napoleon III enters the same grand J
battle nelil m his .V.M year, lie lias
no personal experience, but is sup
ported by well-tried veterans of the
Algerian and Crimean wars l'tdisser,
Mc.Mahon, llandou, Neill, Caurobert,
Oasleilman, Mngunn, llaraguay d'
Ilillieres and, for active oli'cieivo
war, the finest army in Europe, most
individual in character, most ambi
tious, best disciplined and best equip
ped. He has however, himself a
large and valuable theoretical knowl
edge of the art of war. There is no
man probably living who has read
more, thought more, or written more
on military subjects than Napoleon
111. Several of his treaties are we
believe, the standard works in Europe
in the departments of the science of-
winch they treat. Jle lias also been,
from his youth, a sagacious observer
of military alf.iirs throughout the
world of ilie two great Algerian and
Crimean wars in particular, tho ope
rations of the lirst of whi'eb, since his
accession, and of the last from the. be
ginning, he has the credit of conduct
ing. Napoleon I was young, but a mere
strippling; Napoleon III is in the vigor
of mature manhood. This was virtu
ous, temperate even to abstemiousness-,
unkuonn, without money and with
out friends; the other is a riotous liver,
. . i ..... i
lascivious, commands money ana
friends without number, and fills the j
world with his name. This was
open frank, sincere, full of sympathy
with his men, with whom he lived on
the most familiar terms, sharing their
joys and sorrows and danger, impart
ing to them his plans and designs,
even his inmost thoughts; the other
is cold, distant, reticent, to a proverb,
imparting his counsels to none, hardly
letting his left hand know what his
right band doelh, and familiar with
none. Napoleon I, in line, was still in
the lire of youth, active, enterprising,
a man ol genius, indeed, from the
promptings of which he always acted.
Napoleon the 111 is past the middle
age; inactive, but mature in judge
ment, upon which, and upon his theo
retical knowledge, he has alone to re
ly. It will be curious for the future
historian to run the parallel of their
respective careers. X. O. Picayune.

i (
It. waslale in the 'il'ternoon. A Io;iy
row of girls ami boys stood in a icy;
ular line belure their teaelier. in a lit
tle red schoolliiiuse, reciting their
spelling lesson, while t lit; remainder j
of the pupils lideled in their seats.',
piled ami re-pilel their books on their
desks, and east restless, can-cr glances
out; of the open door, oiid then at the
teacher's face, for it. was nearly time !
for dismissal, and weary of a Inntr nf- j
ternoon's ooiilinemelit, the cliiMirn i
ejiild hardly wait for the tinkle of the
bell the. signal of their release. At
Inst the spelling class took their seals, I
the bell sounded, and instantly there j
wils a scene of confusion boys rush-1
ed out of the door, and jjavo vent Io
their pent up spirits in whoops, yells j
and soinersetls, and frirls mole quietly (
but not less yuily, ran out into thel
the open air. Soon their merry voi
ces' died away in tlie distance, and the
teaelier was left alone in that just now j
crowded school room.
She was a younn and striking look- :
im; girl in appearance. Her form i
was erect, her step quite stately, and j
her features, ihoiijfh irregular, were j
pleasing; her abundant raen hairj
was wound in a soi I of corona! around j
her hea I, in a singular but not unbe
coming fashion; her complexion was!
a clear olive, an 1 her mouth linn in j
its expression, almost, unpicas tntly so j
when closed but. when she smiled she j
was positively beautiful, then her I
whole countenance eliamred; her lnr;:o ;
lieryeyes rowsol'lnnd tender, and the j
pride and Imnliv.r that spoke in her
every lineament, lnarrintr her oilier-1
wise almost pcifcct beauty, disappear-1
ed. j
Just now one of those beaming
smiles lighted up her countenance: slie ;
stood by her desk, in her usual erect j
position, holding a note, yet unopened,
in her band. It had been brought to i
the school. room during the session,
and now that she was alone, she pre- j
pared to read it. .Shi! seemed in no
haste to break the seal. She looked :
at the bold, linn hand writing, and j
messed it to her litis; then.slowlv mi-:
i folding it, she read : j
I 'For sometime past. Ileatriee, I have
J been unhappy; you have observed il.j
i and to your inquiries as to its cause, I
! have given false and evasive replies, ,
but I can deceive myself and you no I
longer. I sought you last night wilh j
the determination to tell you all, but
I could not utter the words that would, j
I felt, give you so much pain. Hut 1 j
must trust to it. What my tongue !
refused to tell, I must trust Io my pen. 1
It is useless Io hesitate, the sooner it is
all known the belter for us both. i
IJealrice. I lind that I have mistaken J
the nature of my Ceilings towards you.
As l!od is my wiiuesn, when we were j
trothed I thought I loved you. I Mill (
appreciate your rare loveliness, and j
better still, your many excellencies of
mind and heart, but our all'eetions are
beyond our control, and much as there
is admirable about you. I no longer
love voti. At lirst I determined never
to acquaint you wilh the change in my
sentiments, but 1 khruuk from a life
time of deceit. I could not nt the al
tar perjure myself by taking those
solemn vows, ami I knew too, that you
would spurn the ollered hand without
tho heart accompanied it. 1 have
done very wrong in hastily entering
upon our engagement without a prop
er knowledge of my true feelings to
wards you. I was charmed by your
beauty, dazzled by your wit. and at
traded by your virtue; 1 mistook the
whirl of emotions 1 felt for love, hut
it is better for me to acknowledge my
faults, tbura to commit a sin in lending
you to the altar while my heart is
another's. Forgive me and forget
me. Farewell, and may you soon lind
some one more worthy of your love
than your friend (if you will still allow
me that title.) Lous Meredith.
Every particle of color forsook Bea
trice's checks as b read her lips
were white, her hands trembled vio-j
lelently.sho could scarcely hold the
letter, a death-like laintness stole
over her, and she sank into a chair and
buried her face in her hands.
Not a tear, not a moan escaped her;
she snt there in silence, motionless ns
a statue, but in her heart what a
whirlwind of emotions was raging!
How long sho sat Micro she hardly
knew; when nt last she looked up, the
twilight was deepening, and she rose
with a start from her seat. Her coun
tenance bore the traces of her suffer
ingshe looked haggard and wan;
he agony of these few hours had
changed her fearfully, but her eyes
Hashed wilh all their usual lire, ami
her lips were firmly compressed to
gether. She drew herself up proudly
as if she despised herself for her weak
ness, crushed thi! letter, which had
fallen from her trembling lingers,
contemptuously under her foot, and
then picked it up with a look of dis
gust, and if it had been some loath
some thing, and pulling on he' hat and
shawl, she walked liiiuly out of the
room.
She went rapidly on Mil she reach
ed a. low, while coltagef she. entered
if, and passed quickly through the lit
tle silting room to her own apartment.
Here she took from an inlaid box a
package of letters, and adding that
she had last received to the number,
sin; hastily collected every memento,
however trilling, w hich had been the
gift of Louis .Meredith, and placed
lliem securely together ill readiness
to ret urn to him. Then carefully ar
ranging her toilet, she returned to (he.
silling room. An old lady, dressed
with scrupulous nicety, was its only
occupant; she was quietly knitting.
The table was spread for the evening
meal, and she had been evidently'
waiting for her daughter's return.
"Von are lain to-night. Ileatriee,'
shi' said, 'but 1 suppose Louis came
or vou to go to walk. It is so loolish
to take such unreasonable hours for
his walks. Tea has been waiting (his
half hour.
'1 am sorry to have kept, you wait
ing so long, mother,' returned her
(laughter's silvery voicehut those long
walks will trouble you no longer.
Louis Meredith and 1 have parted
forever.'
Tin! old lady dropped her knitting
work in her lap. and looked at. her
daughter in astonishment ; at length
she spoke
'On 1 see; a lover's quarrel. Hut.
you will make it up in a day or two,
and be all the happier for it. Well,
well heller disagree before than af
ter marriage.'
'Mot her," said I',. 'at rice, 'listen Io me.
1 shall never uiar.iy Louis .Meredith.
Xolhing on eaith could induce me Io
do so. As I said, we are parted for
ever: and now let me beg you never
again mention his name to me; let tin'
subject never again be alluded to be
tween us; let nil be as if wo had nev
er known him.' Her voice softened.
'Vou will not be worry, mother dear,
to have your Ileatriee again all your
own,' and she took her parent's shriv
eled hand fondly between her own.
Mrs. Lancaster was touched by ibis
expression of tenderness; for Ileatriee,
although a most devoted daughter, in
fact I he only support of her poor and
widowed mother, rarely made any
demonstration of her attachment, and
tins caress, slight as it was, lilleil I lie
mother's heart with joy. She drew
her child to her side and kissed her
tenderly, but Ileatriee escaped from
her embrace, and saying cheerfully,
Are we never to have supper?' led
the way to the table. She talked gai
ly during the meal, and though she
ate little, succeeded in withdrawing
her mother's attention from her waul
of appetite.
Not tin! most watchful eye could
have delected a shade of sadness in
her face or manner, that evening; in
deed she was gayer Mian usual. No
wonder that, her mother good, unob
servant soul believed that she was
happy in her release from the lie that
had bound her.
A few evenings had passed, and
Ileatriee stood in a little sitting-room
dressed for a party. Never had she
looked more, heautiful than now, in
her simple white dress, wilh ils crim
son ribbons, and a red rose in her
hair. Mrs. Lancaster looked at her
in admiration, nor was she alone in
her appreciation of her child's love
liness. She was the belle of the evening
at Mrs. Mercer's, ami not even the
youthful heiress, in honor of whom
I he party had been made, and to whom
Louis Meredith was said Io be alli
anccd, could divide the honors of bcl
leship with her.
It had been well known throughout
Mie village that Ileatriee and Lewis
had been engaged, and the fart of
their separation was equally well un
derstood; but though she was narrowly
watched, no look or gesture betrayed
that she had been moved by the sun
dering of the tie.
She was surrounded by admirers,
she had a smile lor this one, a coin
mand for a second, and merry words
for others; and, as ii attracted by some
i irresistible charm. Lewis Meredith
hovered near her even when talking
wilh his aiiianced bride, Theresa
Benedict, he heard every word that
fell from Ileatricc's lips and saw her
every motion.
His eyes (lashed angrily ns he saw
her smilingly receiving the attentions
ollered her, and contrasted her man
ner towards all with tho careless
good cveimr' with which she met him;
her hand had not trembled in his
grasp and lie was piqued at her evi
dent indilferencc; he was jealous, too,
and almost gnashed his teeth wilh rage
when he saw her apparently listening
with (Iffeneitt attention to the half-
whipcrcd words of Halph Mercer,
tho only son of their hostthe weal
thiest man in tho village.
Louis looked at Ileatriee, and then
at Theresa the ono a poor village
school teacher, an 1 the other a weal
thy daughter of a distinguished law
yer nnd ho could but acknowledge
liow fur superior, in beauty, grace and
talent, whs the humble teacher ho had
discarded for his nllinnced bride.
11 is eyes were open. He knew that
ho still loved Ileatriee, and that with
out her money Theresa would have
been utterly indill'crent to him.
lie could hear it no longer. He
stole ns soon ns possible to Jleatrice's
side and said a few words on her co
quetry it nil hiiartlcssncss,
She turned her largo flashing eyes
full upon him with a look of contempt.
'Mr. Meredith forgets himself,' she
replied, mildly; 'his opinion is utterly
iiidill'erent to me. What, right has ho
to criticise my conduct?'
She. waved her bund in token of
dismissal; and he left her, with n
strange mixture of love and anger in
his heart as ho saw her again the
centre of n circle of admirers full
of life and animation. The hours
Hew rapidly, and when at last the gay
company departed, Louis saw with
bitter jealousy that Ralph Mercer
was I he devoled'attendant of his dis
e;.r!e.l Ileatriee: and he sought his
home angry with himself and with
the woi Id.
The excitement of (lie evening was
over and alone in her chamber Ilea- !
trice thought, of all that, had passed. I
She had triumphed; hut, alas! what,
an aching heart had been hidden tin- (
iler that gay exterior! j
She had loved Louis Meredith with i
all the ardor of her passionate, but i
reserved nature, anil not. so easily I
could she Mirust him from her heart.
The struggle Io appear happy to de
ceive all about her wilh a show of in
ilill'erence as loo much for her. She
longed to be away, ami right gladly
she accepted a lucrative oiler to take
charge of a school in "a large town of
Mont ford, where she might escape
llie sight of Louis, the reports of bis
approaching marriage, and the Argus
eyi s of a whole village.
Mrs. Lancaster made no objections
to the proposed removal, and ere long'
Ileatriee ami her mother left Laugdon
forever.

We have much available talent in
the South, but I fear there is too much
prido in the way. I can see no more
discredit, in n teinnlc leaching for a
livelihood than for her husband to be
working for a living. There are, I
fear, many young ladies of education,
who, while they might be contributing
to the dignity and independence of the
South, by engaging in some occupa
tion where they are needed, though
they may feel ever so patriotic, allow
into seek the services of those North
of us, whose interests must be more
or less nntagonislii! to our institutions,
simply because a false prido will al
low them to imagine that dignity and
a crust, are preferable Io any thing
assimilating to servitude. This is a
great error. True dignity arises from
thi! ashes of the spot on which we
build the lires that illume and cheer,
ami warm the friends and olfspring of
ihe friends who surround us. "To do
good and to communicate, forget not,"
is an injunction of Holy Writ; ami it,
would be well for us to shake oil' our
lethargy, and rise to a true knowledge
and sense of our position and duty.

has very truly said that woman is
never really and healthily happily
without household cares. Hut to per
lorm housework is often considered
degrading, liven when! the mother,
in obedience to the traditions of her
youth condescends to labor occasion
ally, the daughters are I'requcnlly
brought up in perfect idleness, lake
no bodily exercise except, walking in

carriages, or dancing at a party.
Those, in short, who can afford ser
vants, cannot demean themselves, as
Iliey Hunk, by domestic labors. J he
result is, too frequently, that ladies of
ibis class lose what little health they
stalled life with, becoming feeble in
just about, the proportion as they be-1
conic fashionable. In this neglect of
household cares, American ladies
stand alone. A (lerniau lady, no
matter bow i levalcd her rank, never
forgets that domestic labors conduce
to the, health of body and mind alike.
An Lnglish lady, whatever may be
her position in society, does not pegs
Icet the all'airs of her household, and,
even (hough she has a housekeeper,
dc voles a portion of' time to this, her
true and happiest sphere. A con
trary course Io this results in a lassi
tude of mind often as fatal to health
as the neglect of bodily exercise.
The wife who leaves her household
cares to her domestics generally pays
ihe penalty which has been nllixed to
idleness since the foundation of the
world, and cither wilts away from
sheer ennui, or is driven into all sorts
of fashion vide follies to lind employ-

A beautiful woman is like a great
truth or a great happiness, and has no
more right, to cover herself with a
green veil, or any similar abomination
than the sun bus to wear green spec
tacles. Fiilucation begins the gentleman,
but reading, good company, and
reflection must linish him. Iackt,

Time IV.uu uM. Wo have heard it
said, that were pure gold to be laid
down in Mie streets, and rich wine
poured from fountains, the people all
the while, being invited to come and
take what they desired, it would
not be very long ere both tho
the gold ami the wine would bo
entirely disregarded. Without vouch
ing for the exact accuracy of tiiis, we
may be permitted to accept it, at least
in part. Without dispute, man is a
trading animal; ami as a kind of con
tinuation of the saying we have quo
ted, we may throw in boorish behavior
of certain persons. Civility, all the
world acknowledge!!, costs nothing,
i'robably, that, is the reason, why a
part of the world ignore it altogether.
