VOL. I-NO. 108.
WOMAN.
It hail been said, in some sweet strain,
That warms,the blood in every vein,
" A perfect woman, nobly planned
To warn, to, comfort, and command."
Als: lucky he, who, having found
- , A woman with perfection crowned,
Makes her his own, for he may then,
With heart responsive, cry amen.
Let us commune, that we may see
If women are what they should be : -
With Fancy's fingers lot us draw
The curtain of a gay boudoir.
• En dishabille, a maiden fair,
Is buiy with her toilet there ,•
Before her, on the stand displayed,
The
. subtle dye and rich pomade,
To give the hair Ito proper hue,
.And tinge the curving eyo-brows, too;
Perhaps the silken lash to dye
That trembles War her dishing eye;
And as the blushing maiden seeks
The rose and lily for her cheeks,
Those secret aids are brought to light,
The "liquid rouge" and “filismaish white."
•
A brilliant dress, of pattern rare,
Hanga close beside her, o'er a chair,
To be on Chestnut street displayed,
Whore rival belles may promenade,
And feel a pang of keen distress,
From envy of so fine a derma.
Bhe turns with haughty pride away
Prom where her mirrored charms aro seen,
And lifts with jewel's hand the dress,
And gazes on it ea a queen,
, Looks on her regal robes alone,
, When dressing for her king and throne.
The waiting-maid has Just come in,
The knots to tle, the hews to pin,
And all her taste and skill display
Uppee her mistreits'a proud array.
TIM: dress Is on; the servant kneels
Behind her mistress, at her heels,
To bring herself in ouch position
' . That hope may dawn in bright fruition—
:- Hope,
nothing more, or nothing lees,
• Than hoping she may hook the dress.
She tugs end mills, but vainly tides
' To make the hooks embrace the eyes.
The mistress helps, they draw and strain,
They struggle hard with might and main,
Until the yielding ribs at length
cave way to their united atreugth,
And she i .the maid, with long-drawn sigh,
Puts the last hook in the last eye.
- Behold the mistress! Fashion's ape;
A wonian with an hour-glass shape,
Who looks, in case she leaves her mansion,
With waist like that and skirts expansion,
As if the windirt sudden flirts, -
Might seize on the inviting skirts,
And such a purchase ranee on them,
As would from off the slender stein,
The head and ahoilders snap, and bear
The 'Atria ballooning through the air ;
While on the street the trunk and head
• Were looking for the members fled.
No wonder liquid rouge must place
The rose upon that maiden's fare,
For, to the cheek the prisoned heart
Cannot through shrivelled veins - impart
- The rich and healthy tint which glows
Ilpon thb free, unfettered rose.
The pallid cheek, the hectic glow,
Tho darting pains that come and go,
The faltering step, the vim iled,
The palm' that rack the joints and head,
The lungs diseased, the carving spine,
• Are fruits she'll reap at Fashion's shrine,
And thee unto the grave will haste,
The victim of porterted taste.
Reform must come, and banish hence
A style devoid of wit and senile,
And substitute a style that will
Allow the lunge a chance to fill—
A style lis which the eye of taste
Finds beauty in a natural waist,
And in such limits of a skirt
- As keep it from the dust and dirt,
In which a holy may be seen
Not a sweeping street machine,
But as a woman ripe with grace, •
From pretty foot to pretty face,
Who, satisfied with bones her own,
' :Leta bones of slaughtor'd whales alone ;
woman in her dress arrayed,
, Not moulded, but as Eve was made
By Him who, in his perfect plan,
Gave her as God's best gift to nine.
Here, gentle made; with your leave,
I'll leave •yott with our mother Eve,
Who erred, 'tie true, but mast command
'A kind remembrance at'my hand,
Because her sin, through Adam's fall,
Has built up Bennett's Tower Hall,
For, first of all our human woes
- Was, and ianow, the need of clothes,
A need that has been felt by all,
From that first eta of the fall,
When fig-leaf aprons ruled the hour,
Down to the time when Bennett's Tower
Looms proudly toward the vaulted sky,
A land mark, that the world may buy
At Tower Hall the beat of clothes,
A solace for the first of woes,

RIGHTS AND WRONGS OF COPYRIGHT.
A few weeks ago, litessrs. Harpers' Tema/
of Civilization contained an announcement,
which gave much pleasure to us, in common
with the numerous readers of Harper's Dfaga
sine:
"Mr. Thackoray's now story, 'The Virginians,'
with many humorous illustrations by the author,
is commenced in the Decembor number of Ilarper's
Magazine. It is Printed from early sheets, re
ceived from the author in advance of publication
in England ; for which the publishers pay Mr.
Thackeray the sum of two thousand dollars."
Accordingly, as much of " The Virginians"
as had boon published in London on the Ist
of November, together with faithful copies of,
the, author's own illustrations, appdared in
the December number of Harper's Magazine.
There can be no doubt that this portion was
printed from early sheets, for which h liberal
sum was paid to the author. Harper was pub
lished, wo believe, about the 28d of Novem
ber—or a week in advance of the actual date of
the Magazine.
In Harper's weekly Journal of Civilizalion
of November 28 appeared another notice,
which we subjoin :
46 With the full knowledge of this [the above
quoted I arrangement, the proprietors of the New
York Tribune, who have been loading advocates
of an international copyright law, and profess the
warmest regard for the interests of British authors
in this country, have begun to copy this - story into
their paper. The same parties, under the same
circumstances,
reprinted upon us 'Mr. Dickens's
Little Dorrit,' for which we paid the author
two thousand dollars.
•' No American publisher can afford to give two
thousand dollars for early sheets of a foreign work
which is instantly reprinted upon him by a rival
in a business.
"The course of the Tribune is, therefore, do.
oidedly calculated to deprive the British author
of the only compensation he can get, in the pre
sent slate of the copyright law."
On the face of it, this appears a well-founded
complaint. In two instances, large amounts
had been paid for early sheets, with the ex
press purpose of being able to publish "
Dorrit" and "The Virginians," in ad
vance of every other person in America.
But, as the case lies, it does not appear that
Messrs. Marra did avail themselves of the
full privilege for which they had so largely
paid. They delayed both re-publications un
til a time when the Tribune, or any other
paper, could have also published what DICK.
ENS and THACKERAY had sent on in advance,
"Little Dorrit" and "The Virginians" are
serials, issued in London on magazine-day,
(the last day of each month,) sometimes
in time to be forwarded to this coun
try on the Ist, and sometimes not for.
warded until a few days later. But, on the
average, a complete English copy of each
serial would arrive in this country about the
16th of each month, which might be re-pub
lished in the Tribune some days before Har
per's Magazine usually appears. Therefore,
though the Tribune did anticipate Ilittrut's
publication of " Little Dorrlt," and has "be
gun to copy" Mr. THACKERWS "Virginians,"
there is no pretence for the accusation or
complaint that such copying was from Har
per's Magazine. Strictly speaking, the Tri•
base was fully competent, if it pleased, to an
ticipate Harper, by reprinting "Little Dor
rit," and " Tho Virginians," copying from
the original English issue of DICKENS and
THACHERAY.
IR reply to Messrs. HARPERS' card, the
Tribune puts forth a statement, in petit:lca
tion, to the effect that, once upon a time, a
certain young publisher of New York, who
had paid Diettins for early sheets of a new j
woitlati overtaken by certain pirates named
HARPER, who made a reprint from a copy' of
what the said young publisher had issued,
and sold such reprinted (or stolen) copies at
half-price, thereby causing serious Injury to
the said young man. But, even admitting
the truth of this, it has no relative connection
with the case before us. Had Messrs. HAR
PER done wrong a thousand times over, would
it justify the Tribune in doing wrong a single
time? The . Tribune's actual defence is that
Messrs. HARPER did not avail themselves of
the privileges for which, in each case, they
had paid two thousand dollars, and, by such
neglect, had enabled the Tribune to anticipate
them, by giving earlier reprints of cc Little
Dorrit" and "The Virginians," from the ori
ginal English editions.
In proof of this comes the fact that, some
months ago, Messrs. IlAnrun made a contract
with Sir EDWARD SWAYER LITTON, for early
sheets of his new English novel, cc What will
we do with it?" now publishing in Blackwood's
Magazine. Instead of keeping these early
sheets back—so that what appeared in Black
wood's Magazine for November would only
appear in Harper's Magazine for December—it
appears in Harper's weekly Journal of Civili
zation long before any copy of Blackwood con
taining it possiblycan roach this country. This
really anticipates all chance of reprinting from
Blackwood, by way of competition. We write
this on December 4th, some twelve days before
Harper's weekly Journal of Civilization can
reach this country, and already have wo road,
in Harper's weekly, (the last two numbers,)
most, if not all, of what shall regularly reach
us in Blackwood a fortnight hence, it we take
the Edinburgh edition, and a few days later,
if—following the example of cc all the world"
here—we wait for the cheap and accurate fac
simile reprint of Maga supplied by those enter
prising friends of literature, LEONARD SCOTT
& Company, New York, publishers of the
leading English periodicals.
When Messrs. HARPER re-published " Lit
tle Dorrit," they had no medium but their
Magazine through which to present it to the
American public. Now, that they have a
weekly newspaper of their own, which we
road with pleasure, (always skipping the
"Bohemian" mock gentility, and the gentle
dulness of as The Lounger,") It is surprising
that, having also had previous experience of
the Tribune's action with respect to " Little
Dorrit," they did not throw "The Virgi
nians" Into their weekly publication, and thus
defy competition—as for piracy, that is out of
the question. As the law now stands, the
Tribune has full right to reprint the English
aerial, at its earliest convenience.
Summing up the case, which we have
endeavored to consider fairly in its various
points, we think that, by keeping back "The
Virginians " for their Magazine, and not im
mediately issuing it (as in re Bulwer) in their
Weekly Journal of Civilization, they left a
loop-hole, through which a sharp practitioner
might creep in and catch them. They have
been NO caught by the Tribune beyond doubt.
But, for our own part, anxious as we aro for
an early reading of TIIACKERAY'S new work,
wo certainly shall not turn the Tribune's re
print, as we prefer having c , The Virginians"
on the good paper and with the clear typo of
Harper's Magazine, with the additions of the
author's own illustrations, which, though
clumsy enough at times, have the merit of
being characteristic,
Mr. J. Ladue was on board the steamer
Cleveland during tho recent terrible storm on the
Lakes, when the steamer was within an inch of
being wrecked. Ile speaks of tho courage of the
passengers. saying: In the midst of the unflinch
ing courage displayed on every hand, shines still
brighter the courage of a woman who was one of
the passengers, the brighter as it stands in con
tract with tho shoor cowardice of a oravamsoulod
man who was aboard. That man was a French
man, and not an Englishman, as we stated Tutor
day. Ile absolutely refused to work, when a
woman—which should have brought a burning
blush of shame upon his cheeks, if ho was pos
sessed of any manhood—stepped forward and
volunteered to take his place. That woman's
name NFU Miss li. Wishard, of Milwaukee. The
passongors, however, would not allow her to work.
Her noble behavior upon this occasion won for her
the admiration and esteem of every ono on board.

SABBATH READING.
THE TIME TO PRAY.
UT GRAYBEARD.
fres The Press
The Bible teaches that "there is a time for
all things ;" and acting upon the principle
that Order Is not only "Heaven's first law,"
but also a component part of every well-organ
'zed mind, men have accepted this Scriptural
motto and gxesnplify it' in what they call sys
tematizing their business. 'Common sense, in
its most exalted sense, feels the propriety of
this Divine provision; and admits that there is
a time—i. e., a proper time, and consequently
an improper time for everything; that there is
a time, for example, to work—as to work at all
times would be destructive to health and life;
a time to test—which is not when we have
duties to perform and are able to perfoim
them ; a time to eat,--whieh is not at all times,
as that would he gross gluttony; a time to
sleep—which is not when the' sun is above the
horizon, as'fhat would be reversing the order
of natureA-t(To this rule the printers of a
morning paper of throe form an exception 1)
a time to drink--which is when we are thirsty,
not always when afriend invites us;
,a, time
to speak—which shonid. only be when we have
something to say; a time to laugh—which is
not in the house of God, or while sorrowing
ones are around us ; a time to mourn—which
is not in this house of feasting and a time to
fight—which our non-resistance: friends will
allow us tOisay, is when our lives, Our friends,
or our country, needs Our defence.
But, not to lose sight of our subject; there is
a time to , inai, When 't There '•is a little
verse of thl'Oe words, contained in the autho
rity from which we haVe already quoted, which
says, 4s Pray without ceasing."
This monopoly of prayer, as some have
termed it,laust not be understood as an in
junction for us to continue at all times in the
attitude of formal prayer, and it is only a
sneering inlidelity that would willingly torture
this text into aueh an absurdity; yet, properly
considered, this divine command of conti
nuing instal/tin prayer" is ono to which the
heart that is right with its Maker accedes.
That man, for example, has not yet learned
the Alpha Of Isiti.dtsty aaa Chtistian—whether
professing:infisoskiwofsistii4 7 -who does 'not
constantlyrealfze his '4dr:senders - cis upon God
for all that he has and is, and who, upon feeling
this dependence, does not continually strive to
shape hie life and conversation iu such a man
nee as to continnold God's favor; and he who
does thlijulflis this divine requirement ; for
practically, the ever-present internal acknow
ledgment-of a man's need of help from above
(and which need has been over uppermost in
the minds of many of the wisest of the sons of'
this and other Christian lands) may truly
be said to constitute a life of unceasing
prayer.
But there are times when seasons for prayer
and public devotion of a more stated charac
ter are oMineritly proper, and essential to the
Christian groWth of the community. As to
how frequent these seasons should bo made,
any decision that man might make would be
necessarily arbitrary. This much, however,
it may be safe to predicate, that as the world
progresses onward and upward toward that
state of moral elevation that is to usher in the
millennial day, the emblems ofman's reverence
for his Creator must become more anti snore
general.
In a recent number of TUE PEEKS the fact
Vas announced that a daily prayer meeting was
being held in one of the churches in a sister
city, between the hours of twelve and one P.
M., for the convenience of merchants and
others, and which was meeting with remark
able anaemia. Since then, our attention has
been called to the fact, that a similar meeting
has been commenced in the lecture-room of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, Fourth street,
below,Arch, for the purpose, as their circular
expresses it, of "giving merchants, mechanics,
clerks, strangers and business men, generally,
an opportunity to stop and call upon God amid
the daily' perplexities incident to their respec
tive avocations."
There should bo no objection made to this
movement by the friends of Christianity, as
the more general these spiritual exercises be
comei the !nom efficient will be our co-opera
tion Witlt`God in bringing about that predicted

COMMUNICATIONS.
THE FINANCIAL CRISIS.
Editor of The Press :
I do not think either of the writers in your
paper has given a deep view of the financial
crisis, or has given the remedy or preventive.
My view of the subject is, that we are suffer
ing now from the overtrading speculation, ex
travagance, and borrowing and lending of the
last ten years, caused by importations, banks,
and by grants and sales of public lands to
speculators, as individuals or companies, caus
ing too much capital and labor to be engaged
in non-productive employment; that Is, import
ing and distributing foreign goods, manufactur
ing and distributing domestic goods beyond
the wants of the people, in luxury, idleness,
Vice; thereby,building cities, railroads, canaht,
telegraphs; &c., and all their various interests,
faster or in advance of what is required by the
amount of labor and capital employed in agri
culture, and by the diffusion of the labor and
capital employed in agriculture over a large
extent of territory, causing its productiveness
to be diminishe'd.
The importations arc the most fruitful cause
or evil, and cause the demand for banks,
which, by inflating the currency and . raising
prices, increase the importations, and the
number of persons engaged trading.
Tho importer sends out for as many goods
as his means and credit enable him to buy ;
they are stored in the bonded warehouse—on
the security of these goods, he gets money'
from bank, pays duties, or sends for more
goods; sells his goods for Vas ; has those
notes discounted.
His customer, the jobber, sells goods, gets
notes for them, has them discounted; buys
more goods; has the notes he gets for them
discounted.
The retailer gets his goods from the jobber,
and, influenced by the quantity and variety of
goods in jobbers' stocks, and by competition
with his rivals, buys largely, and makes great
exertions to sell to consumers by giving long
credit—keeping a large stock in a beautiful
store.
The discounts and deposits of the importer,
jobber, and retailer form the basis of banking
operations and inflations of the currency,
which, by raising prices, increase the business
of importing and distributing goods, which
stimulate banking. This continues until the
crash comes.
The importers, jobbers, retailers, and banks
build, and cause to be built, palaces for bank
ing, warehouses, stores, palatial residences,
city and country railroads, for distribution of
goods; hotels, theatres, opera houses, gambling
and houses of ill-fame, &c., &c., to make the
city attractive and increase its trade. Labor
and capital are attracted to the city to share in
its seeming profitable business, its luxury, its
vice, to engage, in its manifold non-productive
employments.
The manufacturers and dealers in domestic
goodsform large companies Nvith immense capi
tal, and owing to expanded currency, caused
by banks and importations, are able to raise
money and continue their operations with
seeming profit for some time, and assist in tho
general inflation and overtrading, but the im
portations and expanded currency soon crush
them.
A large proportion of banking operations
are engaged in facilitating the business of im
porting and distrituting foreign goods; im
portations increase banking business, banks
increase importations.
The National Government, by its sales and
grants of land to speculators, bas assisted in
causing the evils under which we labor, by
causing capital and labor engaged in agricul
ture to be diffused over too great an extent of
territory, thereby making it expensive to con
vey produce from the producer to the con
sumer; capital and* labor that ought to bo en
gaged in producing food is engaged in specu
lating in land and food and in transporting
food, through the mismanagement of the
Government.
I propose as a remedy for, and preventive
of, hard times, that the National Government
shall enact a tariff' to restrict all importations,
not for the purpose of protecting manufactures;
but to restrict tho employment of capital and
labor in importing and distributing foreign
goods, and in other consequent non-product
ive employments, and to restrict, conse
quently, the export of breadstutfs and specie.
That the National Government shall discon
tinue the sales and grants of public lands, tr
cept to actual settlers, in limited quantities, n
condition of immediate cultivation, in order to
prevent the employment of capital and labor
in manufacturing beyond the wants of the pea
pie, by presenting this great inducement to
labor to engage in agriculture, thereby lessen
ing the amount of labor at the disposal of the
manufacturer, and diminishing the tendency of
laborers to congregate in cities.
That the Natio n al Government shall refuse to
permit the States to charter banks of circula
tion, and shall cause provision to be made for
the gradual withdrawal of their notes ; their
place to be supplied by Treasury notes not
lower in denomination than twenty-five dollars,
and not to exceed in amount one-half of the
bank circulation withdrawn. E. P. K.
MATTERS AND THINGS IN NEW YORK.
(From the Now York papers.]
THE WOOD-SAWYER'S BET —Before the elec
tion, two merchants of this city. S. A. Gilbert
(Wood mon) and James Brown, (Tieniann,) agreed
upon an election bet, the condition of which was,
that one whose candidate should be defeated
should forfeit twenty-five dollars or saw a load of
wood in front of the Girard. The 'fulfilment took
place 10-day, at ono o'clock, when Mr. Gilbert be
came, if note veritable hewer, a sawyer of wood.
Ho began upon his pile of pine, sawing each
stick in four pieces, and soon raised such a blister
on his hands, that his victorious but compassionate
friend Brown, who was overseer of the work, was
fain to lend him a pair of yellow kids, to complete
the job. By-and-by ho got dry, and with diffi
culty obtained permission to liquidate his obliga
tions, and while doing so, received permission to
diseontinue the work. lie, however, refused to
avail himself of the privilege, and if ho has not
..ono away, is still sawing, as the reporter loft
film. A largo crowd surrounded the spot of the
achievement, who manifested great satisfaction in
its perfermaneo.—N. F. Evening Post.

Cincinnati Markets
Hess AT CINCIVNATI, o.—The arrivals have
been very largo during the week, and the trade
hao partaken of that activity and beetle peculiar
to it in this city at this season. A large decline
has been established, however, during the week,
amounting to 75e per cwt. This decline may he
attributed to the largo arrivals, bad weather, and
but a very limited demand for the Hog product.
The transactions each day were as follows:
Wednesday, 2,363, averaging 190 to 210 lbs, at
55.50a43.75.
Thursday was Thanksgiving day, and no sales
were recorded. The market was dull, however,
and prices tended downward.
Friday-1,100 head bold at $5 to $5.50, averag
ing 170 to 225 lbs
Saturday-2.600 head sold at $3 a $5.15, closing
very dull, with no buyers, and weather unfa
vorable.
Monday—the sales were confined to three small
lots at St SO to $5, with a dull market, largo arri
val:, and bad weather, damp and warm.
Yesterday the temperature became more favor
able, and it was clear and cool, which produced a
somewhat bettor fooling on the part of drovers,
and the mat bet was slightly firmer, holders being
less anxious to sell. 'rho sales, however, were
confined 101110, averaging 160 to 170 The, at 51,80;
100 do do 215 lbs, at $3; 500 and 155 do at the same,

Whalemen lave opportunities to become ac
quainted with the habits of the polar bear which
others do not. Captain Walker, of the South
America, relates a fact which perhaps is worth re
peating. Ho found two polar bears, a female with
her cub, swimming in the Arctic Ocean, forty
miles from land And Captain Murdock, of the
Nassau, states that ho shot one ninay miles from
land. During theso long passages across sena and
buys, which must take several days, they live on
their own hair, or grease attached to it, as the hair
is found in rolls in their stomachs when killed.
Captain Walker took a barrel of bear's oil from
the cub which he killed.

CITY POLICE—DECEMBEa 4
[Reported for The Pres., J
A BLACK DANDY UNRICCED —Old Phil Mackey,
a colored speculator, keeps an "establishment
in Lombard street, where he hires out fashionable
apparel to ambitious Ethiopian ladies and gentle
men who desire to make a sensation on Sundays
and other holidays, and who are prudent enough
to do the genteel thing in the most economical
manner. Old Phil charges twentrfivo cents For
diem for the loan of a stylish dress-coat, suitable
for a nigger gentleman of the largest pretensions,
twelve and a half cents for a vest of the " loud
est " pattern, and proportionably low prices for
all other outside garments, including satin dresses,
flounced up to the very waist, magnificent shawls,
and other fixtures adapted to the wants of his
lady customers.
On Saturday evening an aspiring young darkey,
named Elisha Prince, went to Phil's emporium and
obtained a complete outfit for the ensuing Sabbath.
The transformation was marvellous; when he en.
toredPhirs premises he was as ragged as Lazarus,
when he came out be might has u been mistaken
for Fred Douglass, or some other dashing specimen
of African perfeeitbility. Old Phil, before Elisha's
departure, gave him a strict charge to return the
fashionable garniture punctually, at the expira
tion of the time mentioned in the contract. Elisha
was bound by that contract to redeliver the goods
before eight o'clock on Monday morning. But,
like Cinderella, ho was so intoxicated with his
splendor, that ho forgot the injaustions of the
wizard who had transformed him, and this forget
fulness, on his part, led to sorrow and disgrace.
From early dawn to deny ere. on Monday, Phil
was engaged in hunting up his delinquent' custo
mer, but the search was ineffectual. About three
o'clock P. M., on Tuesday, the anxious eyes of old
Phil discerned the gay and graceful form of Elisha
moving over the payment near the intersection of
Sixth and South streets. Ile was escorting a pair
of African belles—the very cynosures of negrodorn,
daughters of a retired white-washer, supposed to
be gelato wealthy. It appears that Elisha had just
popped the question to ene of these dark com
plexioned beauties, and was waiting in trembling
expectation for her answer. At this clitical
moment ho feels a rough grasp on his collar, and
the well-known voice of old Phil shouts in his ear:
"Off with dern fixins, you black porpus! Didn't
I toll you toy must be fetch back early en Monday
morning? Gib 'em up right away!"
The two ladies were overwhelmed with astonish
ment and dismay when old Phil tore off first the
coat and then the waistcoat from the back of their
fascinating beau; but when the ruthless despoiler
declared, in no very elegant phrase, that he had a
claim on the pantaloons elm the affrighted girls
screamed and fled with as much precipitation its
their extensive crinoline would allow. Nothing
but the prompt interference of an officer prevented
the unhappy Elisha from being completely stripped
of his borrowed plumes, and it was found Necessary
to make an arrest of old Phil to keep him from
making a visible breach of decorum in his despe
rato efforts to get possersion of all his property.
