IIiiii and F icullirH of the dity.
Our country reader, who live in ill
simplicity of naluro, and know
other tuIot'uiiiK but thai which their
uvu beauty oCforin and fuco, la reus I
instance, to uoiply cottiers upon the to,
will hardly belicvo that the fathioon
blo women or New York ignoro nature
ultogether, nnd rely exclusively upon
itrt for their "innko up." They solid,
or did Bend, lo Paris until Iho war
came nnd spoiled their marketings
lur all their millinery oud dressDinkiuK
whieh they put upou their person",
and cured nothing for tbe cottt, provi
ded only I lint the courtezans who
dictate Iho Ait-hion to ull the nionicd
aiistocraey of that city, end to cod-
tixhe gomrally throughout the world
should also set tho Jutdiion for theiu
in tho instaoce of tho dree" und
bonnet which they orderod and in
which they deeiguod to astonish society
and ile drawing-rooms.
For it must be uudet wtood that Pari
society is divided iulo two ariittoora-
oics, ono of which wo have nlroudy
taken n gllmpso ol, viz : tho anitocrnoy
of wealth and licentiousness, and the
other, which we now introduce as the
gennioo tristorraey of rank, manners
ODd refioo.ueot. Tho ludiea of the
latter class drew iu the plainest and
aimplesl style, although of tbe richest
and most costly materials, mak'mg a
very distinct sad docided contrast to
tho ladies of the world of fashion ruled
over so supremely by tho kept women
of the court ond the rich rottei of tbe
city A real lady way be known At
usee, therefore by ber dress, and so
may tLe bindsome queens, aforesaid
by theirs. The one aims at and achieve
tho utmost clogonco and decorum iu
btr toilet; tho other devotes all hor
wit nod wealth to "out-IIerod Herod''
ooxtravapanceaod display, and thinks
nothiog of putting ft hundred fraoos
upon ber back.
It Is this class tbst the fashionable
women of New York are so passion
atoly eagbr lo loiitate, and, if possible to
out-vie. These are the pretty empty
hoads who call themselves conserva
tives, forsooth 1 and who yet lire so
fast that tbey have no eontripetal force
left in them, bt are all outsides, kvnd
may vanish any minute into centrifu
gal ooiienUy. They affect bisk morals
oovcrthcless-taking Hanilet's advice
to bis mother to this regard! when lie
tells ber to "assume virtue tboogh sbt
has it oof and tbis Is' the sum and
substance of their coosolaneo. Tbey
like, however, to be esteemed by their
tet as ''proper women," and hence
tbey "ran s-muck" of all the greal so
cial reforms of the lime,' abhor what
tbey eall the ''manly women,,--women
that la to say, whose intelloots are too
big to let them Submit to tbe ; slavery

A Whrel-ilurrow dame. .
"It-Is rolnlod of Girard that whoa,
a yonng tradesman having ksraghk of
him and paid for a hag of coffee; two-
toe led lo Wheel it liome himself, tho'
shrewd old merchant iuiinodiately off-1
ered to trust Jii customer for as many
hags as ha might desire. ' Tho. trait'
of character revealed by tho young'.
tun a in being bis own porter, had giv-'
ro the uiillionuiro coufiJenco in him ,
at onco. His reputation was mado,
with (Jirffll. fjo lac una a favored
dealer with tho enterprising mcnhant
throve rapidly, and io Iho oud made u ,
fortune.'' Exthang?. ,
That sort of thing might have
worked well enough with old Girard,
but it dou't fool nnybudy uow. J bats
tried it. I bought hall a pound often,
at 1'eoderry's tha other, after
rending tbo aboto paragraph, and
wlieelod it homo lo Iho most ostenta
tious mannor, to see if Pcndcrry, who
was looking on, woulln't offer to
trust me foi nil tho toa that I wanted, .
hut he didn't. Oa the contrary, I
overboard blm speak up sharp to a
clerk ns I went around tho oorHor as. .
king him ii "that tes was paid furs?" ,
1 afterward took n wheelbarrow
and wcut to a flour storo on Central
Avenue. Rought a small bag of flour,
twenty-five pounds, I thiuk, aud loa
ded it on. Tho head of tho concern
looking at mo with appireat intorcat.
"Now,'' I thought, ' Is my opportu
nity. This is u Girard fuller. 11
will tell mo to cinio and get all tho
flour I can wheel away nnd pay when
I get ready. .Portwps ho will offer
tuo a partnership in his storo."
Then I spat on my bands and whip. .
ped thorn over my shouldors to eu
couragc n vigorous circulation, rub
bd(thcm together smartly, aud clutch
ing tbo handles of tho burrow started
off at a brisk trot. 1 had proceeded
about a square whou I heard someone
.shouting after mo. I looked around
und'fflw tho flour man coming on a
dead run.
"Ha, bn !" thought I, "tbo thing
works admirable. Tbo example of
Stevo Girard is not lost. 1 have' rc.
vealod n truit ofchaructor In being
my own porter to say nothing of
my ho cr, and my fortune is made,.
The flour aod feed man
merits, and comes to uffor me a part"
As hespproaeed I saw ho hadsonio
motley in bis baud. "Ho is at least,'
I said, "going to rotnrn me my moo.
icy." There was a sovero look oo his
face as be oamo up to me, which did
nut uocord nt all with what 1 bad pie-.
lured Girard's couotonunco t) bavo
worn when bo gave tho carta blanch
for oolTec.
Whilo refloctiog that it might be
bis way," ho said : "Sir, I want you
to tio right back to my store.'
It is coming now.'' though I.
did not quite like bis tone. "Wheel
barrows tire about to receive their re
ward. ( Ho is goiug to t'ffer me a
partnership ', perhaps to turn over
his entire business to mo.'' I wa oou
sequeutly olsted.
Then I said lo tho flour and feed
man, jttsl a though I didn't know, -you
know, tbe clever tilings be meant
to do for rue,-"Msy 1 inquire for
what purpose, sir ''
"Certainly you may, '. ho replied,
