Godey's Lady's Book for July is at
hand. It is useless to praise Godey
more than we have, for nearly every
one in our community knows that it
is the best lajiss magazine published
ih United States. We think so,
and we have never said that much for
any other magazine. The engravings
and fashion plates in it are not equal
ed by those of any other publication,
and then ihey are always so seasona
ble. We have sent quite a number of
subscribers to Godt-y during tho past
18' lonths, and all express themselves
highly pleased. Apropos, we must
thank Godey for the carefulness and
interest he manifests in answering our
letters and complying with the desires
of his subscribers
The subscription price of Godey is
$3, but to those, who subscribe and
pay in advance for tho Home Journal,
we will put the tivo at 83 50 only
50 cents more than the cost of the
Putnam's Monthly. This work for
July has been received. It comes rrg-
ularly, and we like to read if, except
when it begins to dabble in politics.
Why its proprietor should profess to
publish a "literary and family maga
zine," and yet falsify that profession
by continual publications against the
institution of slavery, we cannot tell,
unless it be that he wants to attend to
things that don't concern him. Wei
advise the editor to take down Iks'
present motto, and have one to read as !
follows: A magazine devoted to rned- j
dling with Southern institutions, espe
cially that of slavery, and yet profess
ing to be a magazine of literature,
science and art.
Of all things, we do detest a man
whose acts belie his words and ii
that is not the case with Putnam, we
are very much in honest error.
UJ3 The Gospel Advocato, publish
ed at Nashville, and conducted by T.
Fanning and W. Lipscomb, is a nice

Church. Terms $1 in advance.

ed at Philadelphia, Pa., is another
magazine of equal merit, and devoted
to the same cause as the Gospel Ad
vocate. Terms $1 per annum.
Women's Notes. We see that tho
Supremo Court of tho United States
has decided in full bench that the note
of hand of a married woman, however
wealthy she may be, is utterly value
less unless her husband is able and
willing to pay it. In the case before
the court the woman was sued for the
value- of a note of 8500 given for
board and lent money. A decision of
the court below was reversed, and it
was ruled that the wife could not be a
witness against the husband. So that
all the notes of a married woman are
worthless, except notes of invitation.

Tho Three Great Powers.
The Press, tho Pulpit, and Wornuu,
are the throo groat powers of Ihe
earth the irrcsistuble levers which
constantly raise humanity to higher
and still higher degrees of progress.
Without thorn, tho bottom of thingn
would fall out, and society be spilled
back into original chaos. And ol'thec
great powers, woman is the greatest.
Tho press makes the people intelligent
and patriotic; woman makes them in
dustrious, generous and romantic.
The press rules our intellect; tho pul
pit our consciences; woman our hearts
the press sways public opinion, and
the pulpit, sways moral convictions,
but woman sways all things. There
would be a falling off even in church
going, were there no girls there; mid
if woman is not "first in war," ohe is
certainly "first in peace and first in
the hearts of her countrymen." And
she has her influence in war ton; mnn
would not fight merely for rnasculinn
applause. It is for "tho girl he has
left behind him" that the soldier chief
ly bears his burdens, runs his risk, and
deals his sturdiest blows; and his lau
rel wreath of triumph would be but a
barren symbol could he not lay it. at
her feet. The world is governed more
by the heart than by the head; and the
heart is woman's empire, wherein she
rules to elevate and refine. Without
the sunshine of her influence, the heart
of man would be a bog filled w ith
noxious growth a mere fungus ooz
ing slime, in which the rose of nflec-
ion would never germinate nor the
flowers of eloquence bloom. Woman
is tho engine of life, the great motive
power of love, valor, ambition and civ
ilization. May fortune favor her, man
protect, her, and God bless her,

A Model Wife.
A pleasant little Florentine story
reached me the other day. One of our
famous American sculptors, residing
in that delightful city, whither all the
genius of England seems to tend, was
one day seated in his studio at work
on an Apollo for which, by the way,
ho might stand as a model himself
when his attention was attracted by a
tremendous trampling of horses in his
courtyard. lie looked out the win
dow, and beheld a magnificent car
riage, with out-ridprs, drawn up before
his door. Presently a gentleman claim
ed admission to his studio, and an
nounced himself as the Prince di B-.
He came to give the sculptor a large
commission. Hi3 daughter, who had
been struck by some statues of the
American that she had seen, wished
to sit to him for her bust. She was
then below in the carriage. Was the
sculptor .t leisure? Trice was no ob
ject all that was necessary was to
gratify his daughter, who was an in
valid. The sculptor expressed his willing
ness to begin the work instantly, and
the Prince making a sign to his lack
eys from the window, they procooded
to lift a lovely girl, who seemed about
eighteen, out of the carriage, and
bore her in their arras carefully up the
stairs to the artist's studio.
The sculptor could not repress a
look of surprise at this curious mode
of locomotion, particularly as the la-
dydid not hrar th slij:Mt tra'' of
t'lmvsin her countenance. ThnVrincc
interpreted his glance, and replied to
"My daughter has been paralyzed in
all her limbs," he said, "for tho lust
two months. It is a sad thing. She
had all the medical aid in Flurcuce,
but without avail,"
The sculptor looked naiti at the
invalid. iWliing more beautiful in
face or form could have been dream
ed of by Phidias. A face like Cerci's
before it was cloudud by the memory
of crime, massed of rich, lustrous au
burn hair, framing a clear, pale face,
with deep blue eyes swimming be
ticatli a fiii,i;) of the silkiest black
lashes. Through her delicate muslin
riibo the contour of a divinely mould
ed f.jrm was indicated, and when the
young Signorina cast upon the sculp
tor a rapid glunce, soft us starlight,
piercing as electric fire, lie felt his
heart leap with a mysterious presage
of some indefinable catastrophe.
She sat, The sculptor worked at his
model like one inspired, and a pang
struck his heart as the hour for her
retiring came. The Prince and his
lackeys bore her again down stairs in
their arms. The carriage door closed
on her, the horses swept through the
g;ite. The sculptor did no more work
To-morrow she was to come again.
He lay awake all night dreaming of
her. Then he would shudder and say
to hansel I
"It is not love, but. pity, that I feel.
She is a paralytic."
"The next day the same scene was
enacted, with this difference, that the
Prince having seen his daughter seat
ed by the artist, excused himself on
the plea of a business engagement,
saying that he would return in time to
conduct his daughter home. Poor
girl, although the sculptor was a mod-
el of manly beauty, her deplorable con
dition was, in her father's opinion, a
safeguard against any dangers which
he might otherwise have anticipated.
Ue left the room and drove away in
his carriage. A silence -ensued. The
sculptor dared not look at his model,
but worked away on his clay image
without raising his eyes. Still a si
ienco. Then it seemed as if a slight
ruffle had filled the room. A small
white hand stole across his mouth, and
a burning kiss was priiitcd on his fore
head. With almost a shriek he, leap
ed to his feet, and there, with blushes
crimsoning tier pale cheeks and ala
baster neck, knelt the paralytic girl,
with her eyes imploring pardon.
'I saw you a long time ago," she
said, (an Italian woman, when she
loves, knows no half measure,) "and I
loved you. My father was very strict
with me. I could not move without
being watched. It was impossib'e for
me to mttet you or see you. I feigned
paralysis. For two months I have
scarcely moved, la his pity for my
condition my father relaxed his sur
veilance of my motions. He gratified
every wiuh.and, as an invalid, I exci
ted no suspicion by desiring to become
your sitter. I have said that I love
you. If you do not return my love, I
can only die."
What answer made the American.'
Wo need not inquire; only, when the
I'rince di B- returned he found noth
ing in the studio but a clay model of
his paralytic daughter. The original
was nowhere tobe found. A few days
afterward, in a small town of France,

Murrvinjr Advice to JLaU:.j.

midst of plenty. He will not only de
stroy your pcaie of mind, by eternally
talking of anticipated evils, but he
will stint and starve you until your
body shall become as lean as his soul.
When I see a man a lover cf idle
nes.i more than industry, sacrificing
even his interests to indolence, I gacss
thar that man will soon learn want.
Ladies, do not marry a lazy man; let
he who is devoid of energy must be
devoid of proper feelings, and will not
be stimulated by affections to dis
charge his duty to his family. Holv
Writ informs us, that he who will nc't
provide for his own household, is worse
than an infidel, aid hath denied sbb
When I see a wan a Lvtr oi whis
ky more than that ot water, wasting
his wealth in wanton ways, sacrificing
his. health, reputation and piece of
mind, to a beastly appetite, I gucstf
that that man will soon drain the cup
of his misery to the very dregs, and
that he is not long for this world. La
dies, do not marry a drunkard: of all
characters he is most to bo dreaded
and avoided, for drunkenness is the
school of every other vice, and the
high road to ruin.
When I see a man a lover of self
more than of society, engrossing, while
in company, the. whole conversation
to himself sacrificing every principle
of politeness to a dictatorial disposi
tionI guess that that man, few as he
admires, will find still fewer to admire
him, and none to place as high an es
liniate upon him as hn puts upon birr
self. Ladies, do not marry a "proud,
conceited, talking spark;" he is too
much in Jove with his noble eoif, to
leave any room in his heart for any
one else; and rest assured, where at
fcation is not mutual, life cannot be
prosperous or happy. "Secst th?u p.
man wise in his own cor.ceit, there is
more hope of a fool than cf him."
When I see a man a lover of pleas
ure more than of propriety, sacrificing
principle to passion, and prone to nros-
trate his prospects before his propen
sities, I guess that that man will reap
pain instead of pleasure, and that
pleasure itself will pall on his palate,
Ladirs, do not marry a lover of ple.a

you, nor can you please him long.
wnen l see a man prodigal of his
property, pouring it out profusely,
without regard to the precepts cf pru
dence, I guess that that man is pre
cipitately pacing the path to povertv,
and that therefore he will not long
own property. Ladies, do not marry
a prodigal unless you choose poverty,
When I see a man of a virtuous life,
with a clear head and a warm heart,
and industrious habits, laboring with
zeal and energy, for his own and the
general good, I guess thai that man
would make a fine citizen, a happy
husband, an affectionate father, and a
prosperous man. Ladies keep a good . 4
