Theory of "Gossip."
We are often asked, " What is goo..
sip ?" We answer, in a general way,
that it is talking of persons rather than
things. Nothing shows the paucity_ - of
ideas more than this talking about . the
affairs of your neighbors. It is not only
malicious people who originate scandal,
it is narrow-minded people, ignorant
people, stupid people. Persons of cu . ..
tore and intelligence are'not so hard run
for topics of conversation. Th eycan
. •
usually God so mething to say about art,
literature, fashion or society. The mo
ment people begin to talk of their neigh
bors—of persons rather than -tilings—
they are apt to degenerate into scandal;
for ,where one speaks of 'the virtues of
an acquaintance, a dozen expatiate on
his or her shortcomings. And this
brings us to speak of real culture, or
what we consider to be such, at least.
A cultivated person, in the highest
sense of the term, is not merely one who
can talk of books, pictures, and other
elevated subjects of human interest.
To be thoroughly cultivated, the heart,
as well as the intellect, should be refin
ed and enlarged. Sometimes we see
women who, without education, yet-hav
ing been beim amiable, are never guilty
of gossip. Again, we see women, not
naturally amiable, whom education has
taught to , talk of things, not of persons.
The perfect woman, in this' respect., is
one who is both amiable and educated.
But educition does not Always elevate
people above the regions of gossip. A
really bad heart is always malicious.
The best advice.we can give is the
homely old adage : "Mind your own
business." Very few of us ever know
the whole truth about anything concern
ing a neighbor; and to speak of his or
her conduct is usually to run the risk of
being unjust. Much less should we
talk of the motives of others. 'Very few
of us know• our own motives, tied to
venture on discussing a neighbor's mo
, tives is always impertinence, and often
a real crime.

nature it is hers to mould for good or

that she has become a woman ; that with

youthful fervor of , her heart, though its

FEMALE SOCIETY.—We indorse every
word John Randolph says about ladies'
society. Read what he says, young
man, and act accordingly:
"You know my opinion of 'female so
ciety. Without it we should degener
ate-into brutes. This observation ap
plies with tenfold force to young men
and.those who are in the prima of man
hood. 'For, after a certain time in life,
the literary man makes a shift ( a poor
one, I grant,) to do without the society
of ladies. To a young man nothing is
so important as a spirit of devotion
(next to his Creator) to some amiable
woman, whose image may occupy his
heart, and.guard itirom pollution, which
besets it on all sides. A man 'ought to
choose a wife as Mrs. Primrose did her
wedding gown, for qualities that "wear
well." One thing at leaskiktrue—that
if matrimony has its cares, celibacy has
no pleasures. A Newton, or 'a more
eminent scholar, may find enjoiment in
mere study ; a man of literary taste can
receive in books a powerful auxiliary,
but a man must have a boaom friend,
and children . around him, to cherish and
support the drearinesi of age."

addressed themselves to the task of
making time pass - off pleasantly. It was
not long ere all, who were disposed,

On one of the seats in the ladies' car was
a married lady_ with a little daughter;
opposite, facing them, was another child
a eon, and a colored " lady'"-we believe
they are all " ladies " now—with a baby.
The mother of these children was a
beautitul matron, with sparkling eyes,
in exuberant health, and vivacious spirits.
Behind her sat a young lieutenant, dress

Hard' of Hearing
A, young Jonathap once courted the
dmihter of an old man that lived down
East who professed to be deficient in
hearing—but, forsooth, was, more capa
ciousthan limited in hearing, as the se
quel tend to, show.
It was a stormy night in the ides of
March, if I mistake not, when lightning
met lightning-and lona peals of thunder
answered thunder, that Jonathan , eat by
the old man's fireside discussing with the
old lady (his intended mother-in Jaw) the
expediency of asking the old man's pet
mission to marry. Sally. Jonathan re
solved to pop it to the old man on the
peat day—"but," says be, ':as I think of
the task my heart shrinks and my reso
lbtion weakens—he's do dazig'd bard to
hear. a body."
In.the meantime the Old man, who
was hypocritical, so. far as bearing was
concerned, feigned total .ind!fferende to
the - conversation between his wife and
Jonathan, bat, contrary to the anticipa
tion of both, he distinctly heard' every
word-that. passed, and by' the 'dawn of
another day the old Man wad to be found'
in his barn lot-feeding his 'pigs. Jona
than also arose early' from bed in the
morning and spied the old man feeding
his pigs,and resolved I to ask him for

Scarcely 'a minute bad elapied after
Jonathan had made his last resolution,
ere be bid the' old[lnlin good _morning.
Now Jonathan's heart heal—no - 1 .he
'scratched his hbad and birth to a
pensive yawn. Jonathan declared. that
he'd as soon take thirty-nine "stripes"
as to ask the old man. "But,',' says . he
aloud to himself, ".here goes—faint heaq

To this the old pan replied, "Sotave
I, Jonathan, and it's the:worst'oold I ev

So slying, the old man sneezed wash
By this time the old woman7came out,
and having observed his unfortunate
lick, she put her mouth to the old mates
ear and screamed like a,aroundeql Zeno,
..Daddy! I say daddir, you don't un

Old Man—"l told him•our calf halter

So saying, the cad man - aimed a blow
at Jonathan's: head with his walking
staff; happily for Jonathan, he dedged
it. Nor did the rage of our hero step

ner's stables . : " I had the pleasure the
other day of visiting. Mr. Bonner's .sta
bles at his country seat in Mosisiena,
and seeing his wondesfal stud of horses.
His stables are worthy a v,isit se they
exhibit all the,modern improvements in
the training, grooming and feeding of
berries. They are not allowed to , eat
except at regular hours of the day, and
then'they• are fed with all the, enters
which pertains to a well ordered family.
The horses are kept muzzled daring the
hours when not feeding, and thus can
only be kept in 'condition.' The three
horses that he beset his Morisiana es.

.Peerless. Lantern is a large bay horse,
and is one of the fastest , trotting horses

Mar is very fleet, but Peerless, an iron
clay Mare, is the wonder-of the age.
She has made the fastest time in 'a wag

made a mile in 2:231. On the breaking
out. of the war, she was owned by a bank

ordnance of secession would ,bq passed
by the Legislature of Maryland, and that
everything would go to smash, Peerless
was sold. Mr. Bonner paid for her
