Ladies. 

One of the most popular American vul- 
garisms is the ridiculous use of the words 
“lady” and “gentleman.” These unfortu- 
nate words have- been made to. do such in- 
discriminate service that they have lost all 
their individuality, and 110 longer mean 
anything. The tine old Saxon “woman” 
and “uian” are too plain and homely to suit 
Corrupt modern taste mid the vulgar notion 
that a “lady” is something finer and bet- 
ter than a "woman,” has spread through 
almost all classes of society, producing the 
most absurd results. YVomen no longer 
exist, and even men are becoming scarce. 
The Court of Quarter Sessions is filled, dai • 
ly, with “ladies” to hoar how one "lady” 
gave another "lady” a black eye for saying 
she was “no lady” because she merely kick- 
ed theother “lady’s” boy Put down stairs. 
The “lady” who presides over the fish stall 
in the market refers you to the “lady" op- 
posite for a fine assortment of greens. The 
revised editions of the poets will soon be 
coming out with sncli modern amendments 
as these: 

“Fratnlitv! thy name is lady. 1 ' 

“Oh, lady, in our hours of ease. 
Uncertain, coy and hard to please." . 

“1 dare do all that doth become a gentle- 
man." 

“I new sc* 

^fc'iHcef mv bone, flesh of my ‘flesh, 

^BUtyre me: Lady ia her name." 
and as the vulgarism spreads it may at last 
force its way into the gravest prose, and wo 
shall have the awkward lover compelled to 
confess that he “takes this lady to lie his 
wedded lady,” while in the funeral service 
we shall be reminded of the “gentleman 
that is boiu oflady.” The neat, trim, re- 
fined young women who preside at the 
counters of'our stores are beginning to fade 
away into “Rales-ladies!” and it will not 
be long before “washer-ladies,” do up our 
linen forus, while “fire-gentlemen” extin- 
guish our conflagrations, and “work -gen- 
tleman” build our houses and railroads. 
There is a deadly affectation in all this, and 
; yet it is astonishing to observe how wide- 
spread is tlio vulgarism. It is to be seen 
nrnoug the circles of fashionable life, where 
ignorantly educated young women resent 
ns a slight any reference to their honorable 
distinction of woiniyihood, and regard on 
allusion to a male acquaintance os a “man” 
as a shocking breat h of propriety. YY’hen 
an individual becomes ashamed of being a

Cobbett’s Love-Making. 

“I sat in the same room with Irer for 
about an hour, in company with others, and 
I made up my mind that she was the very 
girl for me. That I thought her beautiful 
is certain, for that I had always said was 
to be an indispensable qualification; but 1 
saw in her what I deemed maiks of that 
sobriety of conduct of which 1 hnvo said so 
much, and which by far has been the great- 
est blessing of my life. It was now dead 
of winter, and. of course, tlio snow several 
feet deep on the ground, and the weather 
piercing cold. It was my habit, when I 
had done my morning’s writing (he rose 
at 4 o’clock), to go out at break of day, to

manhood arc sure to be held in honor by 
all manly men, but a woman whose ambi- 
tion is to be calks! "a lady," because she 
imagines that it makes her -something high-

society, will win contempt where she courts 
respect, and well-deserved ridicule where

Are Our Feet Properly Clothed 

It is somewhat surprising that, with all our 
boasted improvements, we have not as yet pro 
duced a propel - covering Tor life feet. Barba- 
rous people, if their climate admits, go   .witb 
bare feet, or wear sandals covering only tire 
sole, or slippers with just enough of upper to 
retain the sole on the feet. We, however, en- 
case the whole fool and a portion of the leg, in 
a material almost impervious to’ air anil mois- 
ture, and generally uticomfwtably hard and rig- 
id. The color aud polish of our boots are ili 
rectly calculated to attract the sun’s rays, an  
the enamel on patent leather, and the blacking 
on ordinary calf-skin, tends to harden and sol- 
idify the substance, closing the pores and ma- 
king air-tight cases for a portion of the body, 
which exudes more perspiration than any othei 
and is subjected to greater strain. 

Onr boots in summer parboil  nrr feet in a 
warm bath, and in winter freeze them in an ic\ 
envelope. It is doubtful if w et feet are. in them

pie dream of a woman, philosipher, and 
hero. Born in a republic, reared in a court, 
daughter of a minister, wife of an embas- 
sador, allied to the people by origin, to the 
men of letters by talent, to tho aristocracy 
by rank, — in her the three elements of the 
revolution were blended or in conflict. — 
Her genius was like tile ancient chorus, in 
which all the great voices of the diatna 
mingled in one tempestuous chord. Think- 
er by inspiration, tribune by eloquence, yet 
woman by virtue of her softer attractions, 
her heautv invisible to the casual observer, 
was of that ki nd which only scnslbtlity can 
feel and intelligence appreciate, It was not 
the beauty of features or form — It was in- 
spiration made visible, passion madeTuan- 
ifest. Attitude, gesture, sentiment and in- 
tonation — all combined to give expression 
to her soul, ller brilliant black eyes equal- 
ly expressive of tenderness and pride; and 
when her gaze, soft and abstracted, seem- 
ed to lose itself in vacancy, one followed 
her glance ns if with the hope of finding 
the inspiration which she seemed to seek. 
That glance — open and deep as her soul — 
was us calm as it was brilliant. One felt 
that the light of her genius was only tho re- 
flexion of a flame of tenderness in heart. — 
She had a secret love for all the admiration 
that she excited, and of that admiration she 
valued only the element of love; and love 
to her was only admiration intensified. 

The events of the revolution maturing 
rapidly ideas and things were closely com- 
passed in her life. She had never been a 
chi Id.   At the age of twenty-two she uni- 
ted title intelligence and discretion of matu- 
rity, to\the grace and vigour of youth.

^.Horses.— I t is a not- 
ui one third of the 



“lie was staying a few years ago at 
Newpoit, shut np in seclusion, deeply in- 
tent upon the production of some poetical 
work. A man demanded admittance, but 
was refused by the servant. He was im- 
portunate, and Longfellow was again con- 
sulted, anti admittance again denied. At 
Inst the man broke though all obstructions 
and Imrst into the poet’s study. Said he, 
heedless of the poet’.s frown: 

“ ‘Mr Longfellow, you must excuse my 
interruption, hut I have business that is ol 
more importance to you even than me, and 
I have come down from Boston on pur- 
pose to see von. Yon know them English 
blacking fellows, Warren, and them oth- 
ers, kept a poet, and their blacking went 
off because of their verses. Now, I’m in 
the blacking business, and if we were to go 
partners, you could make the rhymes, and 
I the blacking, and we could divide and 
make a good tiling out of it.’ 

“ ‘Rut him out! put him out!’ shrieked 
Longfellow, in an excess of indignation 
and astonishment; and the indiscreet black- 
ing maker left the room with greater speed 
tliau he had anticipated for the sale of his 
blacking.” 



men to the contrary notwilbsunung; bn* cramp 
ed confinement ol the feet, in an icy cl 1 envel- 
ope, generated by perspiration and chilled by 
the external atmosphere, thus shutting the fee) 
up almost air-tight, is as unhealthy as it is un- 
comfortable. 

For hot weatner there is hardly any shoe so 
agreeable ns that introduced in the Inst threi 
or four years, known as the army shoe, and ex- 
tensively used by base-hall players. It is ol 
heavy canvass and unblacked leather. It is 
cool and remarkably easy ‘.o the fer t. The tex- 
ture of the canvass allows the escape of perspi- 
ration, and the color of the shoo does not attract 
the heat of the sun. 

It would seem that the plan of covering oth- 
er portions of our bodies u ith material pervious 
to air might advantageously he extended lo O'li 
feet. There is no natural reason why our feci 
should he so less sensitive than our hands — 
They become indurated and deprived of theii 
natural activity by long, close confinement. — 
The people of warm climates, who use theii 
toes as wjdoour fingers nnd the barefooted 
echoolbi y, who picks up and throws pebbles 
with his Icet, show that the foot of the civiliz- 
ed adult in our climate is a much abused mem- 
ber.

boots and shoes might save us from many ol

of corns, nnd bunions, make our pilgrimage 
one of pain . — [Scientific American.

Literary Poverty. — Tho all -night 
walks of Dr. Johnson and Richard Savage 
in the streets of London from want of a 
place to lay their heads find not unfrequent 
parallels in New York. There arc hun- 
dreds of men of good literary abilities, who 
are often pressed for the means of getting 
a 8upperand a bed in this city. 

It is well known that men of the most 
creditable scholastic attainnients-men who 
know Greek, Latin, ami other tongues be- 
sides their mother tongue — may be found 
in that city who are glad of an opportunity 
to write advertisements for patent medicine 
proprietors and shopkeepers. The men 
who make literature “pay” are the rare ex- 
ception. Ono of the most prosperous wri- 
ters on the New York press was three years 
ago so “hard up” that he went without 
food for forty -eight hours, too proud to ask 
for help, and too empty pocketed to have 
the means for purchasing a meal. This is 
not fiction but fact. During the present 
rear this gentleman has helped a score ol

HARPER’S BAZAR. 

■ The Publishers will commence, on November 
1st, the issue of Harper’s Bazar a M eekly Illus- 
trated Journal, devoted to Fashion and Home 
Literature. Their aim is two-fold: to supply 

the existing need of a Weekly Fashion Newspu 
per, and to combine therewith a first-class lit 
entry journal, which will be indispensable lo ev- 
ery household. 

rnmgemcuta have been made, at an im- 
mense cost, v. i th the most celebrated of the 
Fashion Papers of Europe, especially with the 
famous Bazar of Berlin, which supplies the fash- 
ions to the leading journals of Paris, to furnish 
the same to them in advance, so that hcncefort! 
the fashions will appear in Harper’s Bazar »i- 
n ultanecusly with their publication in Paris 
and Berlin— an advantage enjoyed by no oth 
journal in tho country. 

The Patrons of Harper’s Bazar will recieve 
every fortnight large pairern-plates, contain 
ing from forty to fifty full-sized patterns of la- 
dies’, misses’, aud children’s bonnets, cloaks, 
dresses, under-clothing, and other articles ac- 
companied with the necessary descriptions and
