We are the friends, the decided friends
of early marriages. But, in saying this,
we do not mean to recommend marriages
without means, or between persons of
immature age, or where there is too
vast a difference in social position. Gen
erally, in this country, a woman at twen
ty, and a man at twenty-three or twenty
five ought to marry, if a partner of the
proper kind can be found, and there is
a sufficient income between the two for
the comforts of life. A man, and we
suppose a woman also, is happier and
better for an early marriage. The heart
wants something to love. The quiet
pleasures of domestic life conduce also

CAM. PAT6II OUTDONE.-A Dl 1:.6:
6 ‘ lIELLE. " - A funny incident happened
yesterday an the Lawrence cars. A
substantial, wholesome looking hid' la
dy was so intent in her gossip with a
friend in the cars, just as they were star
ting from Lawrence, that she did not
wake up to the re ality until she was
making a course for Boston at a twenty
mile speed. The instant she perceived
this she rushed for the door. Conduc
tor Billings, a very gallant man, and ex
ceedingly tender of woman kind, start
led to stop her and arrived at the plat
form just ns the frightened woman made
her leap.—Luckily the cars were on tho
canal bridge: and as she shot out, the
speed of the train turned her over inithe
neatest of all possible somersets, and
then down she went, straight as a meal
bag, bonnet first, into the canal. The
dive was beautiful, and ns she arose, puf
fing with fright, a board was thrown to
her, and she soon found herself, drip•
ping like a fat nail, upon dry land, un
harmed but a good deal- scared; as well
she might be. Lust night she came up
in the cars, looking as nice as a sun
flower, and calm as a summer morning.
Great doubt has been expressed as to
the probable result of the tussle, had the
gallant conductor succeeded' in clasping
her before the leap was made.—Lowell
STRINGY CABBAGES.—The Post has
the following joke of a "hard case,"
who was accustomed to coming home
late at night in a " corned" state, and
taking a cold bite, which was usually
set out for him by his kind and forgiv
'rie night, beside the usual dish of
cabbage and pork, she left a wash bowl
filled with caps and starch. The lamp
had long been extinguished, when the
staggering sot returned home, and by
mistake, when prri , :ertling to: tinti - sfy his
hunger, he stuck his fork into the wrong
dish. Fre worked away at his mouthful
of caps for some time, but being unable
to masticate them, he sung out to his

NEW MODE CF RAISING TILE WIND.—
Since the late insurrection in Paris a vast
number of musicians, gipsies, jugglers
and others, who frequented the Boulve
ards, and levied contributions on the
passers by, have disappeared from the
locality. One woman however is coin
ing money, and deserves it for her
shrewdness. At the fashionable hour
fa'r promenading on the Italian Boule
vards, she takes her etation there with
a large cage, containing fifty imprison
ed swallows, all haduied up together.
She calls the attention of the loungers,
especially the ladies to her cage, and
repeats continually, in loud tones, "Set
at liberty these poor little birds !" The
werds " liberty" acts like a charm, and
many a heart is touched, and accepts the
invitation. For two cents a head the
work of deliverance is accomplished;
and charitable souls have the satisfac
tion at that price of restoring the wing
ed prisoners to nir and space. By de
grees the cage is emptied ; and when
there are no longer any in prison, the
jailor returns to her home, and there
again finds the whole flight. The swill
lows are trained, and only use their free
dom to return quietly to the lodgings of
their mistress, who renews the specula
lion several times a day:
