*elect nit is cella*
It is a humiliating fact that these are
the two leading questions with a vast ma
jority of thu ladies of the present day.—
It mutters not whether the adorable speci
men of nature's architecture have two
grains of common sense, ur five per.ny
weights of moral principle or not, all that
is required for him is to be beautiful ninny
or a millionaire fool. Now we have
no idea of fighting with a man because he
is fortunate enough to be good looking,
nor of quarrelling with him because for
tune has favored him with her blessings ;
but we do feel like pitying and ,condimn
eng these weak puerile ((quinines who
are ever asking— he rich." or ~I s he
handsome ?"
We firmly believe that there is nothing
which has done so much to undermine the
marriage relations, to spread gloom and
desolatiod over families, as a devotion to
the sentiment expressed in these two•ques
lions. Far too many ladies of the prey•
ant day form their notions of love and
marriage from sickly novels, from theat
rical performances and from'extereal ap•
pearance alone. To their misinformed
fancy of marriage is the seed of inefTabl
joy only, and the future spreads itself as
a bright May day, and golden years dance
in bridal hours. Such an idea of married
life must necessarily be changed into a
wilderness by experience, and chagrin and
unhappiness will, of course, folhw. The
two unmatched spirits are but held in hate
ful contiguity by a legal bond, while to
heart they are divided by a torrent of
very prssionate aversion. Let but these
two questions govern her in the selection
of a partner Ibr life, and it is a miracle if
she does not reach the acme of earthly
wretchedness—it's a miracle if every
hope of happiness be not buried deep in
the years of despair.
Instead of indulging in these nonsensi

Let reason, judgement and deliberation
weigh the matter well, and let the para

last is a vita/ test, fora young man devoid
of filial atintiod and fraternal love is
too selfish to make a good congenial com

grandmothers were made. Had we more
Mary's like Washington's mother we
would have more Washingtons. It was
her hands which moulded his character to
syinetary and moral beauty ; it was her
prayers, her influence and her instructions
which repressed and restrained the growth
of evil qualities, and cultivated that divine
life in his soul which led him to take coun
sel of the God of battles—the Governor
ot nations. Did she not truly help to a
chieve the Revolution as if she had led
the armies to battle ? 'Prue, she did it
through her heroic eon, but she did it
no less—and this is just as God would
have every woman win her honors and re
wards, through her brother, husband or
But think you il:at such a spirit as that
which Washington's mother possessed
would stoop to ask—"ls he rich—is he
handsome ?" Think you she would lama
sure his worth by the broadcloth which he
wore--sr the gold headed cane which he
supported? Think you such a woman
would marry a mart for his pretty faca or
profuse whiskers ? ' The beauty which
such a soul would crave, would be pure
mindedness, sincerity and spotless charac
ter. She would care very little for the
dandy apollos of the present age, with
their faultless forms in perfect coats, small
white hands in Paris gloves, and dimiuu
live feet in French boots. She would'
understani. that there was so much thud

several planks as falloWs :

of the Declaration of Independence, and
asserts that the right of freedom and qua
