Ain A.stosiislied Old Lady.
An old lair whose home is in the coon
try, and who hadtilt been in Cincinnati for
o:erai years,- came in yesterday to do some
trading, her principal business heing one of
few incidents in her life—the purchase
of a new. bonnet. She hadn't had al new
bonnet since she was in Ctinnati the last
attcl that was seven y g OS ago, no had
she seen any of the tiew-hulLrled contrivan7
ces—"triiies light as air
-which the wo:
men wear now days in place of bonnets.
i IF, a new bonnet was the engrossing theme
:in her mind on entering the city, o(Coursc . '
she was on the alert at once to see
the fashion was. Imagine her const:lrna-
Lion, then, in standing on Fourthitreet,
watching the people as they passel l t by.
FOr a time she was pet folly speech4s, amp
then she was observed to, throw up her
hands, and exclaim:
"For the land sakes are-the women all
crazy, gad I in' through th i l estrects with notb
ins on th,ir blessed :heads! What's become
of all their bOnnets?"
She went into a infllnery store ant'l 'ac
costed a "gentlemanly and obliging" young
lady in attendance:
•- •
:'You see I come the hull way front
rnriunt county to buy a bonnet. I've worn
this one ggiin' on !It's a little
out of filshion I reckon, and I want nine
thnt is right in style I itidu't IL - m.oi'; what
the winunin was weurin', so I stood tint
hOrs a blessed hour to see 'em pass, and I
leipe never to sce my uld man again if I
saw one with a bonnet on durin' the hull
roue 1 Some- had a doll's handkeher laid
on the top of the head ; others. had what
lokiked for all thO world like oyster patties
trimmed With blower! glass, and I declare
to, goodness if one woman, with a big ru
tahaga turnip oti the back of her head in a
14 n e t. w ore an y ceverin' 'copting a yalier
circus ticket tied! on with N string, 1"
When infortnid that the styles she had
seen Were the latest - thine- in the bonnet ,
tiro old lady's 'astonishment increased!
a 4 she was thoroughly bewildered by the!
One she had examined each of the varie
tie=s embraced id-the- mildner's collection,
particularly when she learned the acconi
pitnying prices.
• •
She looked at her old bonnet, whielt hail !
been preserved so- carefully (Loring the
changing fashions of seven years, and coin-1
pined it with the fashiOns of to-day, when
the old lady forty wept. She declar
ed it was enough to drive one'craty to see
such vanities as the wOmen'are running to I
n 4 iw days "Twan't so when I was a gal,"
said she. "Women wnre: bonnet.s in th em
days that.dovered their heads,!and Lied 'emi
tinder their chins insteA,of frist - n 7-ein to
the back hair,'' She left in (*mat disirust
and said she Would go right tuck to Claird
Mount and wear her old bonnet till 111:11i
tiers got to making bonnittS again. • --
"Ml' Boy DRUNK !"—"Dru tik l—my bol€

efs eyes, and she bent her heal in unut
tiirable sorrow. In that, moment; theivis
iims of a useful 4d honorable career were
destroyed; and olno of woriblesness, if not
iiti:iiilute disliurn'ir, presehted itself. W e l,
dia she know that : intemperance wa ks hand
in hand with pove' rty, slini»e and death;

Penns3irania in-Congress.
PennsYlvauia has reason to be proud of
her representation in the Thirty• Ninth
Congress. Thaddeus Stevens, by his stur
dy devotion to abstract right, and .by the .
pre-etninent ability with N I llicit he has, coin-
hatted error and inspire the friends of
liberty and •justice with confidence and
courage, has raised our Si...rite to a position
in Congress which it has pot enjoyed since
the days of Benjamin Franklin. But Much
Of the distinction acquired for the Old Key
stone during the pi.esetlt I Congren is due
to the extraordinary ability of her entire
Radical del(Tation: .Ancf we are glad to
see this fact appreciated and candidly set
forth is the. Washinfi,ton torponaence of
the Manchester (N , . H.) 'Xirror. It will
be seen that Our representative ranks among
the most useful ) if.not the mo-t
of the body •
" You. must not for a flionrent imagine
that Pennsylvania can only boast of 6te
vens in this contest. He is in ane and ex
perience her le'ader. Honored as he is to
