They may talk of love in a mansion.
With cellars of good old wine
Of luarb'e halls ami villa. ,
Where gold and jewels shine;
They may talk of a sly flotation.
By the light of n chandelier
Of a rich and gouty papa.
With an only daughter dear
Your mansions ate much too lofty,
They are large, and dreary, and cold ;
Cupid (b lights in a co'tage,
In warm, true hearts not gold.
Your seats on a silken sofa
By the side of a lovely one,
May do well enough to talk of
But silting on hoops ain't fun.
Your rich and high-born ladies
Will spend a fortune each year,
Ami risk their husband's last dollar
For a bonnet "a perfect dear."
They may play the piano divinely,
And with brainless coyeombs smirk.
They may paint and caress a poodle .
But they can't do a stitch of work.
Oh, give me love in a cottage,
Arranged with womanly taste,
With one who ain't nearly fainting
With corset and whalebone waist.
Though she may not ape the graces,
Or a borrowed complexion wear,
She ran grace my humble cottage,
And warble away dull care. Esq.
The fanners' danphterij are soon to lie
the life as well as the pride of the country
plorious race of women, which no
other land can show. I seek not to flutter
them, for before they can become this,
they will have to make earnest tForts of
one or two kinds. There are some who
depreciate their condition, and pome who
have a false pride in it, because they de
mand more consideration than they merit.
A want of intelligence upon nil subjects'
of the day, and of n refined education, is
no more excusable in a country than a
town bred girl, in this ape of many books
Many girls are discouraged because
they cannot be sent away from home to
boarding-schools ; but men of superior
minds and knovvledpe of l!ie world would
rather have for wives women well and
properly educated at home. And this ed
ucation can be had, wherever the desire
is not wantiuo;. A taMe for reading dots
wonders, and an earnest thirst after
knowledge is almost certain to attain a
sweet draught of the "Pierian spring."
There is a farmer's daughter in this very
room in which I am writing, a beautiful,
refined, and intellectual woman, in whose
rrirlhood books were not as plentiful as
now, and who gained her fino education
under difficulties which would have dis
couraged any but one who had as true a
love for study.
The women in towns and cities are be
coming so universally unhealthy, nnd so
almost universally extravagant, foolish
and fashionable, that null are almost in
despair of obtaining wives who are not
invalids, and providing them with what
they demand after they have married
them. Unless the young man has the
fortune (good or bad) to be the inheritor
of wealth, he must spend the bloom of bis
youth in acquiring enough to "start upon,'
as people ore expected to begin now-a
days. Men, even in high places, would
go to the country for their choice, if they
met their eual refinement and intelli
gence. Women aro preparing to take a
noble stand in hi. dory, and they cannot do
it in ignorance.
Town girls have the advantage of more
highly polished manners and greater ao
complishments; but country girls have in
finitely more to recommend thorn as rival;
of their fuir city bisters. They have
more truth, hiusehold knowledge ami
economy, health (and consequently beau
ty), simplicity, affection, and freshness of
impulse and thought. When they have
cultivated minds, there are more chances

lll'.SJAMIN FlIANKl.lX IN IllsCilC. It
is now about a century since llenjamin
l'Ytinkliii,. Postmaster-! Jeneral of the
American Colonies, by apKintiueiit of
the Crown, set out in his old gig to make
an ollicial inspection of tin- principal
routes. It was about eighty yearn since
he held the same oflice under the ati
thority of Congress, when a small folio
(now preserved iu the department at
Washington), containing but three quired
of paper, lasted as nn account book for
two. These simplo farts bring up before
us, more forcibly than an elaborate de
scription, the vast increase in post office
facilities within a hundred years; for if a
postmaster-general were to undertake to
pass over all the routes at present exist
ing, it would require six years of inces
sant railroad travel, at the rate of one
hundred and twenty-fivo mileS daily
while if we were to undertake the job iu
an "old gig," we would require a life
time for its performance. Instead of a
small folio, with its three quires of paper,
the post office accounts consume every
two years, 3000 of the Inrgest sized
ledgers, keeping no less than 100 clerks
constantly employed in recording trans
actions with 30,000 contractors and other
AniLtss Simplicity. One of the
sweetest incidents we have noticed for
many a day, is thus related: A lady
lately visited New York city, and saw one
day on the side-walk a ragged, cold, und
hungry Utile girl, gazing wistfully ut
tome (if the cakes in a shop window.
She sb'pped, and taking the little one by
the hand led her into the store. Though
she was aware that bread mi'dit be better
for the cold child than cake, yet desiring
to gratify the shivering and forlorn one,
she bought und gave her the cake she
wanted. She then took her to another
place, where she procured her U sJiawl,
and other articles of comfort. The grate
ful little creature looked the benevolent
lady up full iu the face, und with artless
simplicity, sail, "Are you God's wife?"

A Good Deliver a nce. Madame Au

'JO to 125 years of age, embarked lately
from Calais to Dover. Her invalid ap
pearance excited the interest of the pas
sengers, who felt great anxiety lest sea
sickness should bring on a crisis which
evidently could not long le deferred.
She crossed the straits, however, safely,
and upon lauding was placed in an arm
chuir, and salts were held to her nose
while an occasional groan went to the
heart of all her traveling companions.
On the wharf a custom-liouse officer ob

could not be done without danger, and by
his philanthropic authority she was taken
to uu aptirUiient in the custom-house, and
a midwife sent for. As the officer had
foreseen, after begging to be released for
a quarter of un hour, she was safely de
