CFrom the Saturday Bellew.]
With the close of the season end the
sufferings of, some of the hardest,- worked
of Her Majesty's subjects within the four
seas—workers, too, whose labor is less
profit than vexation,ler, like the fisher'
men of old, they are of those who toil all
night and too often take nothing. Pei
baps no one is to be pitied more than
those/wretched slaves ' called chaperons;
and certainly no slavery is more impera
tive or less personally productive than
theirs. The park in the morning; pa,
visits, at home in the afternoon; dinners
in the evening—not that they-usually ob
ject to dinners, these being indeed the
entertainments of their own order, and
especially adapted to their condition; balls
at night, after the opera may be, and may
be two of a night—verily the life of a
chaperon is one of unmitigated severity,
and calls for the deepest commiseration
from those . -who have hearts wherewith
to feel the sorrows of their fellow•crea
tures. Lately, a rumor has bten going
about the. London drawing-rcoms that
next season is to see the institution of
chaperons done away - with altogether,
and society at the West end so far Amer
icanised that our young ladies are to go to
balls and parties by themselves, with no
other care-taker than a brother, perhaps,
or a delightral male cousin convenient to
the occasion. Doubtless such an arrange
ment would simplify . matters greatly; it
would'certainly alleviate the sufferings of
the chaperons, while the young ladies and
their partners would find nothing left to
desire. Whether it would work well in
the eyes Hof those who hold the doctrine
of the giddiness of 3 outb, and who,
therefore, think the guardianship of the
young one of the primary duties of ma
turity, is another matter; but if we come
to liking—polling of the young ladies and
their male cousins only—we should sure
ly pole a laige majority in favor of the
abolition of a class which frets more than
it preserves, and which has come to be too
much of a symbol only, though retaining
all the pains and penalties of a vital re
The duties of a chaperon are manifold,
and, on the surface of things, contradic
tory to a bewildering extent. She has to
attract and to guard, to allure and to re
strain, to throw the line dexterously and
with intent, but to prevent too much inde
pendent flattering on the part of the bait,
and too much nibbling on the part of the
fish angled for; and yet without fluttering
and without nibbling how can she get a
- valid bite ? She has to take her wares to
market, but she has to surround them
• with artful contrivances of defense work,
while setting them as attractively as may
be; she has to work Lard to destroy the
health, purity, and freshness on which
she bases her best hopes; and she has to
toil for her - own undoing and to labor for
no reward. This is , the ethical view of a
chaperon's lite, The practical or real
condition is even harder to understand;
and how the institution ever grew into
- what it has now become, and'on what prin
ciple it is founded, are mysteries scarcely
to be explained. In France achaperon is
an absolute power with .strictly defined
_ duties and sharply masked responsibili
ties. She holds her charge as a very frail
vessel indeed, whom she has not only to
keep from evil influences from the out
side, but whose inherent weakness and
propensity to fall into mischief volunta
rily and on her own account, have to be
perpetually guarded against; the central
point of all French morale being the in
nate depravity of human nature, and more
-especially the innate depravity of the
young. Consequently men know what
they-Aim to expect when they encounter
an ingenue taken abroad into the world
ander the eyes of her chaperon or her
mother. They know that when they
lead her out to dance they must keep
within ear-shot of her chaperon, and be
careful not to - speak to her at all when
the exigencies of the figure have removed
them from hearing distance. They know
that they, must bring her back to maman
the instant the dance is ended, ant' de
posit her with a formal bow, safe under
the protecting shadow waiting to en
velope her., They know that they
would be held to have acted in
a manner both malhon*tte and rep
rehensible if. they said, or did any
thing whatsoever that might tench her
feelings or arouse her intelligence. And
knowing all this, they treat their pretty
ingenue with the same kind of care with
which they would nandle a fragile wax
doll ; and judge of her real nature, if
they judge of her Mall, as they beat can
by, the mere sketch afforded - them by her
face and bearing, and the timid tones of
,her voice, when tht y hear them, which is
not always. Stupid as all this is, both for
the ingenue and her partner, it is thorough;
and we accept it as the logical conclusion
of certain -foregone premises. Given a
frail youth, much inclinedto naughtiness,
and having to be kept straight by the force
of outside circumstances, by the care and
restriction and unceasing vigilance of the
mature whom experience has made wise,
not to say suipicions and distrustful, and
we can understand the French system,
though we may not agree with it.
Given, on „the other band, the Amer
ican idea that the earth and all the ful
ness thereof is made for the young only,
and that the first duty of boys and girls,
as soon as they leave the school-room Is
to shelve the old folks and go shead with
out delay—given the national belief in
the power of ail young people to guide
themselves aright quite as well aLd a
great deal better than their- elders can
guide them—and we can understand why
chaperone are discarded over the water;
and why the theory of their necessity is
scouted as an insult to the free and en
lightened juveniles who maintain that no
dangers exist among themselves as an un
checked body, far which advice is needed
or guardianship required. So it, may be
Heaven forbid ' that we should judge; and,
Miracles being hot impossible. Transat
lantic nature may be different from
European humanity, and the ,fire of
youth may -(who knows?) be able to
burn clear without smoke or flare in the
home '-of the setting sun. Never
less it does seem to us somewhat
:strange to hear of splendid balls where
crowds of smartly dressed, and quite re
spectable young women have not .the
ghost of a chaperon among them, of
sleighing parties in the brisk winter
moonlight; with never a wary father nor
cautious mother to guard the lambs from
the wolves; of torchlight skating on the
crowded "rinks," with no prudent guard
ian to steady the tottering steps of Inez ,
perierice, and provide against the dangers
of a fall on such Slippery gruund. To a
French mother, t 6 wheim even our much
freedom More restricted seems a danger
ous tempting of Providence, such ways
and manners are of course anathema
maranatha, and not to be accepted as pos
sible with innocency; and -many are
the equivocal positions in which a
free-spoken and free-acting American
girl places herself, and much and
grave the misunderstandings to which
she subjects herself,- all in the naivest
manner poesible, when first she enters
French soc'ety, and - learns to her astonish
ment-that young girls are supposed to be
given over hopelessly into the power of
the Evil One unless they have a chape
ron always at their elbow to pluck them
back by main force. But to us also this is
an amount of liberty by no means desira
ble; and more than one Belgravian moth
er has heard with dismay whispers of the
coming revolt, when our English young
ladies intend to adopt the American flag,
- be their own generals and lieutenants,
and cashier all their chaperons as so many
worn out dummies of no use whatever.
Now it seems to us that this is a revolt
quite without cause. Heaven knoWa that
it is not much that chaperons do nowa
days to restrain the independent action of
the young, or to interfere with their lib.'
erty. Very few place any limits to the
amount ofpleasure indulged during the
season, and quite as much flirting as is
good for the soul of man or woman is al
lowed to go on under the eyes of the most
watchful. Certainly chaperons, as an in
stitution, still exist and flourish largely;
but it would be difficult to discover their
exact uses, if we except the uses of va
cariousness and responsibility. If girls
were wise they would know that no free
dom is so great as that which is got by
the shifting of responsibility. So long as
they have a chaperon on whom t 3 lay the
burden of their follies, they may be im
prudent as they like; but once left to
themselvts, they enter into the difficulties
of responstoility; and if they have more
freedom than' even now, they have also
to bear more blame for mistakes. As
things are, their chaperons bear the brunt
for them; and if they are faster than they
ought to be, people condemn mamma for
allowing them to "go on -so," more than
they blame the girls for using their over
plus of liberty. They will find this out
to their cost, if they translate the
whispered threat into an acted reality.
To be sure, such radical changes take
time to complete themselves, and though
year by year has seen the gradual ex
tinction of the chaperon moral vitality,
and season alter season has made her
functions more and more mythic, while
appearances are held as essential as ever,
still it will be long yet before English so
ciety will consent to be headed by young
unmarried girls--before the grace and
good inherent in at least the idea of a
goutterrwate is disregarded, and our
maidens are lett to go right and left at
their own sweet wills, without a chaperon
to countenance them, or a care-taker to
I restrain. It may all come in time, and

things are going; but not just yet, we
But the person to be most pitied in all
this is the chaperon herself, for whom it
would be a relief unspeakable if some
good working substitute could be devised,
some quite satisfactory machinery, which
would release her from her weary office
while performing her duties. What a
life hers is ! Half dead with sleep and
fatigue, <she has to sit for hours in a
_heated, stifling room, choked with dust,
dazed with the incessant flitting of whirl
ing figures before her, stunned with
dance-mimic which she hates- '
money, precious money, falling in show
ers of torn tarlatans and crushed flowers
on the floor, without any result to make
up fcr It; seeing, perhaps, the prize for
which she has so long and craftily an
gled nibbling at some rival bait, while a
worthless younger son, or - ruined heir,
pertinaciously holds on to hers, no matter
what the efforts made to shake him off. She
is no longer young, poor body, and has
probably outlived her own capacity for
pleasure. The days when music and
dancing and a crowd gave her delight are
far away in the mist of the past; her dress
may be still a glory to her, for this is the
last personal vanity that dies with a
woman; but, oh! if she could exchange
all this finery for an unpretending sack of
linen, and go to sleep comfortably in the
dark, instead of blinking here, set, up in
silks and-satins, nodding in time to the
rythm of the waltz. She is shaken in
health; as who would not be after such a
youth, and now such a maturity as hers?
but the frightful round of the season has
to be done gallantly; and there is no re
lease for her till the House is up, when
she can escape for a brief time of rest and
early hours, broken by nothing more se
vere than a lawn party or picnic. H , r
girls look at things differently; and thina
themselves very hardly used if they cannot
keep the poor soul up night atter night
till three or four o'clock, while th ey
amuse themselves with flirting, ices, and
the deux temps. It is her duty; and they
hold her to It strictly, and make her bear
her burden without wincing. Sad as it
is to see the young lade and wither to
wards the end of the season, the haggard,
jaded, dispirited chaperon is an object of
greater pity still. The young things at
least have had their fling, and been exci
ted and amused, so that Mil - bargain has
not been quite barren with them,• !Mt the
chaperon has lost her health and her rest
for no result whatever; she has forfeited
her peace, she has spent her substance,
site has angled in the shallows, and tlafts4l
in the deep seas; and cast her nets far and
wide in every water; she has toiled all the
.night, but nine times out of ten in these

Nov content with chloroform, says the
Pall Mall Gazettn, science has produced a
knife which cuts so rapidly that the per.
son operated upon feels no pain. The
method was fully explained the other day
to the British Medical Association by Dr,
Richardson, Ibe inventor,' who has also
written to the Times contradicting a state-
ment which appeared in the paper to 'the
effect that a rabbit was eating its dinner
in front while it was being cut toribbonS
in the rear by the instrument in question.
Dr. Richardson tells us this was not the
case; ,no animal whatever was allowed
the privilege of being subjected to exper
iment. but he "was anxious to make en
experiment, by way of illustration. on his
own' body." Unfortunately, "he was
prevented at the last moment, by an acci
dental breaking of the instrument, from
carrying out the demonstration."
