A Spartan Marriage.
Many of.the laws of Lycurgus, ihcon

-edlximeet4with the approbation of the
.fair.sbx of modern .time. The time for
' , Marriage !was fixed,by statue, that of the
!roan atrabout2o or 35,years, that of the
ladrat about 20 or a little younger. All
men Ache continued unmarried after the
appointed-' time, were liable to, prosecu
tion, and all , old bachelors were prohibi
ted from being present at the public ex . -
!ereises,if ; the ,Spartan maidens, and
'were , denied the usual respect and hon.
ors: paid to .the aged. ." Why should I
glve•yon place,l! cried the young man to
the old unmarried gentleman, "when you
have no child to give-place to MB when
I tun' old ?" Marriage petitions were
given to any of the maidens, so that
neither poverty should prevent a gallant
nor'rfchee teitipt bin' to - marry contrary
'to his ihclinations. The parents of throe
'children enjoyed considerable immttni
lies, and 'those with fear children paid
no•ttixed Whativer=a regulation when
all married men with large fainilies will
a really admit to be' not wise and quite

betrotfial, as in other Greek cities, but
the inartiage itself was performed by the
,young Spartan carrying off his bride by

Jived among the Chookaw Indians, says
a tsireler, I pgld a consultation with,
one of their chiefs .reipecting the stages
of their progress in the arts of civilized
lire and among other things he inform
ed me that , at their start they made a
great mistake -',they only , sent their
bOys to school. These boys came home
intelligent men, but they _married tined
ucated and uncivilized wives and the
uniform result was the children were all
mothers.—The father soon lost
all his.interest. both in wife and child-
Jen: And now, said he, if we would ed
ucatb,but one class of our children, we
should•choose , the girls, for when they
beteome methers they educate their eons.
This iilhe point and it is true.—No na
tion can become fully enlightened when
mothers are not qualified to discharge
the dutieS orliome work of education.
