GLOVES, AND ALL ABOUT THEM.
Gloves are very different now to what they
titled to be, say in Queen Zlizeheth's time,
wien they were perfumed—then called Fran
gipanni gloves, from the Italian marquis of
the attune name, who first invented that deli
_.a t as eFeetid Rerfume e.m
ployed; 'but Titter tbi; seen t rwto c a lled here the
Earl Or Oxford perfume, from its English cha
peron and introducer. And not only perfumed
bat' lined and quitted, and 'trimmed with four
tufts of roses of colored silk, were the Eliza
bethan gloves; as we find in the desericrion
of that royal lady's hand-shoes. Perfumed
gloves are said by some old writers to have
been first brought into England by that same
consummate coxcomb ant top, Edward de
Vere, Earl olOxford, when he'oame !ma from
hie self-appointed exile in Italy, in the fifteenth
year of Elizabeth's reign, laden with sweet
scents, and'nick-nacks, anl man-millinery of
all detioriptions; and it is 'said, too, that the
earl presented her Majesty with her grzt pair
—among other thine, costly and curious';
gift so pleasing to gracious zealotry, that she
insisted -on being pictured with , them on her
hands. For Elizabeth, though a mighty queen,
and tolerable ruler enough, wasn' villainously
bad artist,•and understood no more of the 'har
monies than modern Choetaw. But if per
fumed Frangipanni gloves Were erg brought
in by the Earl of Oxford, what, then, was "the
payer of sweete gloves, lined with white vel
lat, each glove trimmed with 8 buttons, and
aigleits of gold, enatiteled," mentioned
in Henry the Eighth's secret inventory of his
wardrobo at Hampton Court. If these were
not Frangipani glevna, they Were very like
Those " sweets gloves" were dangerous
sometimes. At a time when poisons sere so
subtle that they could be conveyed in any me
dium whatsoever—food or clothing indiscrimi
nately—and when gifts of gloves perfumed
delicately, were common among friends and
enemies, sweet.soented hand , shoee were as fit
instruments of death as anything else; and,
unless history belies her, Catherine de Mediais
knew the value of them on more than one oc
casion. Ruddy-checked apples or Frangiganni
gloves, it was. all one; for what matter is it to
us of what metal the type is cast which prints
the word Finis across the page? It was so
easy, too, to give the death-blow► under the
guise of friendliness ; for notting was more
common in the way of present-making than
gloves, perfumed or not. Ann, Countess of
Pembroke, that heroine of stately biography,
was great in this. She was always taking her
friends into her chamber after dinner, to kiss
them and give them new gloves. "My cousin
Thomas Sanford's wife of Askam and her sec
ond son" one nay dined with her.
Atter dinner she kissed the wife, and took
the son by the hand,`gave to her a pair of
buckskin gloves, and to him five shillings,
which doubtless he appreciated more. A t an
other time she kissed the women of Mr Thor.
Burbeek and Mr. Cotterick, gave ien shillings
to some, and a pair of buckskin gloves to
Mr. Carleton ; once, also, a pair of "bock
skin gloves that came from Kendal," to. a Mre.
Winch, of Settee, Park. Royalty, too, used to
make the same gifts; only something costlier.
At the Earl of Arran's sale, in 1759, a pair of
gloves given by Henry the Eighth to Sir An
thony Denny, sold for £3B 175 ; a pair .gi'ven
by James the First to his son, Edward Denny,
said for £22 4s. ; and a pair of mittens, given
by Queen Elizabeth to Sir Edward Denny's
lady, were sold for £25 45. They were bought
by Thomas Denny, of Irelaad, the direct de-,
, seendant of the great Sir Anthony Denny, one
of Henry the Eighth's executors, and are prob
ably the oldest gloves extant. •
Gloves were greatly favored as special pre

Knitted gloves of silk were common in' the early
times, before the delicate white kid came auto
fashion ; also gloves of fair white linen, curi
ously wrought about with gold and tieedle
work. Kings`royally clethed for their burial,
were royally gloved as well, in these fair white
linen gloves, kith gold quatrefoils, or Mlles; or
other emblems beseeming on the. back, as part
of the needful paraphernalia of the grave.—

Long before our time gloves were worn, and
held to be stmlmolic too. Xenophon speaks of
the Persians as . effeminate for clothing their
bead, their feet, and their hands with thick
gloves against the cold. Homer speaks of•La
etres in his garden, with gardener's gloves to
keep him from the thorns; and another tioet.
the Roman, says twat °Bees gathered

plucked with gloves. The Chinese think dif
ferently about their tea. Atheumus„ in the
Deipnosophists, speaks of a glutton who went
to table withhis gloves on, that lie might e'at
hie meat hotter than the rest, and so get a'
greater ithart ; and Masoning, a philosopher,
who lived at the close of the first Christian
century, among other invectives against the
corruption of the age—that poor age which is
always so much more corrupt than its prede
cessors I—says : "It ia shameful that persons
in perfect health should clothe their hands and ,
feet with soft hairy coverings.". All of which

throwing the glove back is an Eastern manner
of taking possession. Also in Ruth, when it :
says, "Now this was the manner in former
time in Israel concerning redeeming and con

a man pluoked off his shoe, and gave it to his

So, Saul, after his victory , over the Amato
kites, up a hand'as the token of his victory,
and many Pbteciicilart monuments have an arm
and a hand held up as a sign of supremacy and
power. The custom of blessing gloves at, the
coronation of the kings of France is a remnant
of this old Eastern habit—a glove ' indeed,
meaning of them investiture. WhenConte.din
was deprived of his crawl] and his life by the
usufper Mainfroy, he flung his glove among
the crowd as he stood on the scaffold, desiring
some one to take it imp and carry it to his rela
tives, who would revenge his death. A knight
took it up and brought it to Peter, King of Ar
agon, who, in virtue of .this glove, was after
wards crowned at Palermo. The feudal and
old-time custom of delivering a glove in token
of investiture is , the same thing.
FIGHTING DEMOCRATS.—The editor of the
Uniontown Genius of Liberty, in an able article
in reply to the slanders of the Abolition organ
of that place upon the Democrats, or "Copper
heads," as it styles them, makes the following
telling remarks :
"If be intends to insinuate that it was any
class of people whose opinions he represents
that took Vicksburg. then it is a slander upon
that noble Democratic commander, Gem Grant,
and his brave army, who are fighting to restore
the Union- as it was and preserve the Constitu-
Hon as it is—which the Standard opposes. If
he would falsely assert-that his partisans drove
the rebels from Pennsylvania, we ask him what
evidence he has for the assertion, or who it was
that went to do it.
"We know that the "copperheads" from New
York and New Jersey came to our rescue by
hundreds and thousands; we know that that
"arch traitor Frank Hughes," raised a regi
ment of copperheads in Schuylkill county and
led them against the enemy. We know that
Col C. J. Biddle, or Philadelphia, Chairman of
the Democratic State Central Committee, raised.
