Children's Parties.
The Lanese has the following admire•
bin observations on children's parties, a
subject akin to the "late hours" recently
discussed In the papers:
Children's parties are among the many
pecnliariUts of our present social life.
The scale and style of them at the present
day are quite peculiar. The little guests
are summoned two or three weeks before
hand, probably "by gilt edged circulars,
and Will= formal and complimentary;
they assemble to the evening, and stay
well on towardsraidnight.
We shall leave to others the atmaidera
tion of the morel consequence with all
the forms of fashionable society, and
shall confine ourselves to a consideration
of the physical consequences, which we
take to be injunons and undeniable.
Children are excited beforehand, and
still more at the time. They are dressed
Insufficiently; they dance tktemselyesinto

The ulterior consequences of this dlr.

The beautiful village of Mansfield is
situated on the line of the Pan Handle
Railroad, eight miles from the city of
Pittsburgh. This classic little village Is
'surrounded by alt the blessings of na
ture, being placed in a rich and fertile
valley, through which courses the may
tostle and beautifu .though at tim
orbulent Chanters l,
Creek. On either es
aide of this stream gentle hills arise,
from whose summits the page of nature
is opened, and for miles around Multi.
fel sceneries arise and follow each other
in itch profusion, tams affording ample
scope for the artist. - and plenty of food
for the lover of the beautiful In nature.
From those picturesque adornments of
I nature we must turn away, and seek for
pleasure amidst the' works of art: but
alas, how are our anticipations of fine
houses, nicely ornamented yard', streets
laid out with the strictest regard to the
rules of art, finished with the latest
stylenf pavement and marble sidewalks,
and all other improvements which are
necessary to render a village neat and at.
tractive brought to nought. Instead of
any of the improvements which we have
mentioned, we find nothing but mud,
mud, mud, until the heart grows sick
and the IPnbe become weary with plung
ing through the filthy mire. Mud seems
to be the general topic of conversation,
and the inhabitants, as you see them
hurrying along the roadeide r (pavementa
being foreign,) look like so :many mud
slickers seeking for some sunny clime
into which mud comes not; but, Waal
they find none. It must be recollected
that this village, although devoid of
everything in the way of architectural
beauty, is not without some
good properties, among which are the
number of its churches, and the various
denominations of the Christian religion.
You can find here Catholics, Methodists,
Presbyterians. United Presbyterians,
Baptists, Episcopalians, Mormons, with
the colored Methodists and Welsh Bap
tist churches.
_A -
division, of the Bone of Temper
ance, has lately been established in
this village, and we may expect that
something will be done to arrest the on
ward worm of the destroying omisery
of the devil. The Chartiere Valley Rail
road forme a Junction with the P. s Bt. L.
it C. Railroad at this place, and our an
ticipations for the future of the village of
Minefield are great.
We may- mention among the other
goixl properties with which Minefield la
blessed, its institutions of learning.
which consist in a classical and normal
academy (which has been chartered
within the past year) and an excellent
graded school. The academy la at pres
ent under the oontrol of Prof. S. A.

tint Church; under tie able and efficient
President this school has given a new
impulse to the cause of education, and
will, we have no doubt In the coming fall
elections ror teachers. furnish our °musty
with many efficient and well qualified
candidates, • The graded school, for the
past two years. has been tinder the con
trol of Prof. W. M. McCullough, assisted
by; Miss J, R. Davis. The Principal of this
school has been laboring arduously
and earnestly for the advancement of the
school, and his labors have been crowned
with Enemas. Yet with all these advan
tages Mansfield is not devoid of evil:

hive taken a strong hold here; the liquor

The fashionable institution known as
getting 'matronized' has been entibe in
crease for the prat season or two, and has
now attained beautifully larg. e proportions.
-orlayarea-pra- >now -..,..‘ am% m-- - --wir,
only used here by a certain set of people,
a distinctive class of society that is very
hard to describe, but which does, in fact,
in many things, constitute the 'beat.' For
instance, no young lady may accept the
invitation to 'go to any public place of-an I
evening unless they get 'matrenized'—
that is unless they are accompanied by a'
married couple or by a woman that has
been married, althouch she may be' a
widow at. present. You may be en old
maid of sixty, as ugly as Venue was
beautiful, as virtuous as Minerva, but you
dare not (If you respect - yourself) accept
• young man's escort to church, to the
theatre, or upon any public occasion
whatever In the evening, unless you are
'matronized.' The couple who matron-
Sze you may hive been wedded only a few
hours. It does not matter. That is suf.
ficlent. The halo of the honeymoon
draws around the matronized couple an
influence as dread as "Richelieu" drew.
This is one of the ingerfious institution
of that society which turns up its nose at
the shoddy nobility of the day, and will
admit none to its circles who cannot pre
sent the patent of birth or of distinction.
I have known a case where the matron.
izing has been done by a young girl; who
was left a widow. two hours after her
marriago—tie marriage having taken
place with an old man, who was then on
his death bed. Bat this marriage was
quite sufficient to invest the girl with the
qualities necessary to matronization. At
church and inthe theatre she msy be seen
exercising the &fie= function, and male.
Mg happy the young people who like I
each other, and who, but for the consent
ing to form a picturesque End respectable
background, could never hope for immu
nity from the world's gossiping tongue.
In other words, if the modern Alphonse
sad Imogene are ever seen together, on
matronlzed, it means that they are engag.
ed, and society considers itself at perfect
liberty to consider the engagement as a
fad. I think that matronization deserves
to be called a New Yorkism, since it
spranglnto being and attained its present
proportions here. It fnrnishes one of the
many refreshing sightsamongsthe fash
ionable and exclusive phases which the
variegated life of the metropolis produces.
Ladies who are good at matronising, and
may always be depended upon to exer
cise that' function, are pretty soon found
out and fumbled with abundantoccasion
for doing the agreeable. If yon see in a
box at a theatre an elegantly dressed and
well conducted trio, two of whom are
ladies and the remaining one a gentleman,
you may feel pretty sure that the work of
matienizstion fit going on, though it may
be impossible to guess, from the respec
tive ages of the, ladies, which of them is
acting in the matronizing capacity. - The
position is ono that bestows all the confi
dences enjoyed by the 'companion, with
all the dignities usurped by the dueness.

years be has had a large side for spirit

rapper and battery was to be made by
means of a small button, like those used
for telegraphic bell-ringing purposes, or
by means of a brass-headed or other nail
under the carpet at particular patterns
known to the spiritualist. He describes
these rappers as "calculated to mislead
the most wary," and adds that there are
spirit-rapping magnets and batteries con =
structed expressly for the pocket, which
will rap at any part of the room. He has
also made drums and bells that will beat
snaring at command; but these two latter
are not so frequently used asthe magnets
are, because they are too. easily detected.

might read, "Go East and marry." The
practical importance of this proverb to
the female portion of the New England
people will be palpable at a glance. In
Massachusetts the female exceeds the
male population 30,000. In New Hamp
shire 6,000; Rhode Island, 6,000; Con
necticut, 7,800, in all an aggregate of
56,800. While these' States are endowed
with more than their share of these bless
ings, Western States are even more sadly
in .want of them. In California there
are 142,000 more males than females.
What a horrible Statel In Ohio there
are said to be 40,500 more heirs to the bi
forested apparel' than to its opposite,
and even in Michigan there are alleged to
be 40,000 real or prospective old bache
lors, that being the excess of male over
the female portion of our population.
"It Is not good for man to be alone ;"
hence the importance of the proverb we
have cited. Burns says, "Man was
made to mourn." That may be partially
true, but man and woman were both
made to marry, which is vastly more
agreeable and profitable than mourning.
And if he does marry, he may realize the
truth of this aphorism.—DefroLt Free
