Mrs. Peabody wats a lady residing in.
'the country, at some distnucc from the'
'great city of Gotham. She was very un
sophisticated ; indeed she would have
been called "rather verdant" by those;
au fait to the proceedings of fashionable<
life. However, this good lady had a
daughter who was a parlor-boarder at a

a distant relative, with Whom her dnugh-i

she enjoy her visit. She saw all the li

there was to be found, went to Xiblo's
to see .Mademoiselle Loyo ride, to Ear

of the peculiarly female enjoyment ofj

her heart's content. 15ut the crowning
wonder *f all was vet to cume.
"I intend, my dear Mrs. Peabody," ,
-aid lur hostess one morning, "to give a
, small party while you are here. You do
not think of leaving tn? before next week,
1 trnst,"
"No, Mrs. Peabody liopcd not," con
gratulating herself mcaowiiile upon the
opportunity of seeing a little of up-towii;
aristocracy. In the buoyancy of her'
heart, she. went down to .ftewnrt*k and
bought her daughter Ellen a new dress
for the occasion—happily, however, guid
ed in her selection by Alia. Taylor's taste.
.Mrs. Peabody was not sufficiently rus
tic to suppose that knitting-work would
form part of the amusement- of the coin- 1
puny, or to expect the refreshment of tea,
either black or green ; but still we must;
confess that her anticipations of the eve
ning's entertainment were rather behtiid
the age. Mot so those of her daughter.
When the young lady was placed at
: school, her parents had given orders that-'
: no pains should be spared regarding nc
couipiishgwuts; juently, dancing, in

she had adjusted to her satisfaction the

. warning that nothing \\ouid be ready so
early, she descended ty the parlor. Y hat

ture there, and the g:u nut yet turned
on. making ncr way to a .-mo bracket,
which was burning dimly, she looked at
her watc- p, and <m.w it was after nine.—
Thunderstruck at. ikTiug it so late, up
ran the good lady to Mrs. Taylor's door
to sec what could be the matter. Scarce

I "Well," thought Mrs. P., "I wonder!
when they mean to go away, if they couicl
so late. However, as they are not here!
'yet, I'll Kare time to go and put Ellen in f
• mind of bringing down her musio. They
jwiil want her to play to night, 1 know,;
; and I'm not going to have her refuse, af
ter taking lessons of Mr. Yerian so long." ',
'•AA liy, ma," said Miss Ellen, when'
■ her mother entered, telling her for good-!
yiii-HK sfcke not to forget her music, "they
Won't, want me to play to-night. They'll,
have a musician, i suppose—perhaps u
bund.' ! ;
1 "You don't mean that no one will ask j
: you to play ? Mrs. Taylor certainly will." 1 ,
i "Why no, indeed, uu."
"Then when, in the name of wonder, i
|arc you to play, if not in company ? Ho';
•you suppose I lay out so much money on j.
your music just for you to be able to play i;
to your farther at home?"
"No, certainly.; but young Indies very <
! seldom pity in parties vyhere there's dune-.
ling; only at musical so trees J' j.
"O.nlv at musical soirees!" repeated ,
j Mrs.- l'eaiiodv, and after standing a mo-1
j ment she left- the room. • ;
I it was nearer ten than uiue before even
j the first instalment of Mrs. Taylor's "lew j
< friends" were assembled in the glittering
J rooms. • ' 1
"Her definition of a few must be dif-1
| ferent from the Bible one," said Mrs. Eea- 1
jlody to herself, e"l'or I'm sure there is
Live times as many he*e already. '
r J'he first hour passed without Mrs. i
' I'eabody's making any further .mistake
' than asking' a ladv, who appeared in a
j splendid white crape shawl, rf "slie had !
j not better throw oil' her shawl,"
j "that she would send it to the dressing-,
iruom if she. wished;" and calling Mrs.
!Taylor's eldest daughter Jane, in-'
;stead of Jenny, before one of her most i
fashionable beaux—-not knowing that!
(since Jenny Lind's debut there are im
ruoro Jane's iu New York.
At length the music struck up, and
, the dancing commenced. Mrs. Pci-body
had a good position for observing the!
dances, and her diughter was seated by
i her side. The fair country girl attracted
much attention, but she did uot danca,
not liking to leave her mother so soon. —
Mrs,P. was entirely engrossed by the
'scene before her. When the first Couple
begun to Polka she opened her eyes v-ry
wide; but she soon said to herself, "of
course they are brother and sister, or en
gaged, perhaps married. "
But as she saw one after another fol
low on, a lid at la'st Mrs. Taylor herself
j.laee her hand on the shoulder of a gen
tleman whom she knew was no relation
whatever, and join the dances, her horri
, tied astonishment exceeded till bounds.
; "Dreadful, dreadful! And did Mr.
Taylor actually sanction sucli iin prop vi Otis!
After a time there was a pause, ar.d
; during the interval Miss Taylor approach
ed with a moustaehed Stranger, and pre-i
rented him to her daughter. Fouii anoth
jer strain rang thresh the rooms, and
while Mr*. Peabody was thinking "here
, conies more of this disgraceful exhibi

something she did not hear, and cxteml
!ed his &nn. Ellen ruse, and the stran
ger, encircling her waist, whirled her
away to the music of the fascinating
Her daughter, yes, it was her' own
daughter that that impertinent man was
whirling round the room in that style 1 — :
And her own daughter that so coolly and
quietly permitted such a liberty ! Had
Ellen no dflicacy, no sense of propriety
left ? This had never entered her
thoughts, even as she watched the oth
ers, that her own daughter could be made
a partaker in such an improper exhibi
bition. And how dared the man do such
a thing? to take her from her very side,
right before her eyes ! Suddenly recov
ering her powers of speech, ol'locomotrou,
Airs. JLVabody darted across and.
seizing Ellen by the arm in the midst of
a graceful tdton re, exclaimed, "Let go of
my (i aught of, sir!"
The ustonished gentleumn almost un

The toim and. manner immediately at

the ladies, thinking it a good opportunity
to show off sweet sensibility, made dem
wußtriitions of fainting—several got up
a small edition of a scream—scent bottles
were drawn forth, and eye-glasses put in
requisition. Jll a few momenta there was
a general uproar. No one understood
.Mrs. Pea body. Among the retiued and
fastidious fashionables of New York there
assembled, not one comprehended her
feelings. Astonishment, fright and sar
casm, were the only emotions excited.—
Never before had those frescoed walk
witnessed such a scene. Mrs. Taylor
made great exertions to calm her excited
guests, and things were at last restored
to their old train.
Mrs. I'eabody had seen sonic fashiona
ble amusements of New York. She had
.seen fashionable dancing for the tirst, and
she hoped the last time. She left the
city; laying her positive and solemn coui

■be guilty of the glaring impropriety of
dancing any of the fashionable dauees.

THE PRINTER. —The Belfast Meroi*rp
gives the following in relation to printers:
From high to low they are the saum
'careless, light-hearted, clever, well in-
I formed, reckless fellows, knowing how to
. act better than they do—nothing nt times
—everything if the otension requires or
the tit takes tlieui. No sooner are they
'comfortable in one town than they make
| tracks for another, even though they
: travel on 'hair space' means. And 1 t
• what will they not turn their hands ?
"We have seen," say the American edi

Missouri, a sheriff iu Ohio, a boatman 0:1

pressman in a large printing office. Nor

country —they are everywhere the saint.
We have met them as lecturers, aotmr,

Messrs. Editors : lit one of your late pa
pers, sbme one inquires for the best
means of keeping liee from cattle and
horses. 1 can tell him how to do it ef
My father was a good farmer in olden
times. But his cattle and colt* would
sometimes get busy. Being the young
est son, it was made my business to take
care of the calves and young colts, and
sec them safely through the winter. To
keep the lice from them 1 tiied a decoction
of tobacco, applied to their backs and
ncc-ks. it never failed. 1 then tried
Scotch snuff, sifted on to their backs.
That also proved equally efficacious, and
was more couvcuient than the first exj>er
irnent. But on examination 1 found that
all the cattle and colts that were in the
habit of standing before the barn-door
whilst tin?, grain was being wiunowod, and
becoinewcli covered by the chaff, were
never lousy. I then tried sifting chaff
dust upon the calves, and found it as ef
fectual as tobacco in any form. Since
that time, I have sified upon the calve*
ury, fine dust from the streets, and find
that equally as efficacious as either of the
other experiments. liens and chickens
are apt to get lousy when kept in a close
}cn where they can hare no convenient
plaqe to scratch in the dry dirt. But
give them a chance Ha scratch and roll
the dry dirt, and they will never be
troubled with lice. J. b. El>c. ELTON,
