T the Champions of Fashion
able Women.
It seems that our reply to Chaucer, sev
eral weeks since, has disturbed the Rip
Van Winkle slumbers of the so-called
Platonian Bachelors' Association ; who, it
appears, having a great admiration of
hoops and dry goods, hive come to the
rescue of that class of women, that our
" Defense," denouueed. They accuse us
of being illiberal, and having a lack of
discernment. It may appear so to them ;
but we hope not to be so ungallant as to
defame the character of any true woman
We spoke derogatory only of ttw '. class,
whose greatest ambition is to follow the
prevailing fashions, regardless of cost, or
even common decency.
Our Platonian friend say, " that their
standard of woman's worth, is not meas
ured by the amount of Crinoline she
wears, but by her social, moral, and inte
lectual qualities ; and that good taste, in
woman, will always lead her to follow the
prevailing fashions."
It is true, that woman, as a class, do
follow the prevailing fashion ; but we can
not call it good taste to wear a " love of a
bonnet," on the extreme back part of the
head, while the major part remains un
covered; nor do we believe that they
display good taste in sweeping the public
streets with five dollar silks,or expoting a
bosom white as alabaster, or riging them
selves in bishops, bustles, and crinoline.
Vo, str, gentlemen ! we have no admira
tion for walking bales of cotton, or trav
eling dry goods establishments.
It is barely possible that die Platonian
Bachelors, clandestinely bore away with
them, from ther former homes, the entire
wardrobe, of srroe modern woman, at
whose feet they were a devotee ; and as
they are now excluded form her presence,
they refresh their feeble memories, every
Sunday night, in courting the remains of
what was onee supposed to be a real wo
man. Yes, we fancy that we see them even
going through the ceremony of popping
the Question, with its stammering and
blushes, half supposing themselves trans
planted to the times that were " long ago."
And this is the nearest approach, that
they art able to make towards the fair
atx they are "pained," to see their fa
vorite idlt held up to contempt and acorn.
We respect and admire all irut women,
and are ready at all lime, to advance
their interests ; but of ever being able to
support a faikionalU woman, w Lave not
(he renvxett idea that our. pecuniary en-J
dition, will ever allow us to make such an
insane attempt.
The noblest specimen of the handy,
work of the Creator, is mankind; and we
believe the human race was created for a
higher and holier purpose than mere dis
play, or the gratification of their animal
natures; and those, whether men or wo
men, that live only for show, t ufTering the
interior, the mind and soul, to be dwarf
ed by formulas and fashions, little under
stand the purposes for which they were
created.
Every one should dress with taste, show
ing i proper regard for health and com
fort, but beyond this, all is superfuloua,
and often betrays the lack of common
ense and real refinement.
The majority of women are ready to
adopt the lutebt fashions, no matter how
absurd they may be. They do not stop to ,
consider whether it becomes them, or
whether it may effect their health ; but if
it is only Parisian, and Mrs. So-and-so,
has adopted it, of course they must, or be
cast out i f the pale of society. Thus it
ii, that a few individuals, living perhaps
in some obscure garret, in the great
French Metropolis, are issuing edicts
that govern a largo portion of our Amer
ican women.
We allow that woman has progressed
since her creation; but when will she free
herself from the thraldom that now binds
her hand and foot ? Wheu will she rise,
nd in her majesty declare that the is no
longer a slave to that monster, fashiot ?
Oh, woman ! arise, and become thou the
noblest of the noble !
The Atlantic Monthly. We have
received the first number of this new
monthly published by Phillips, Samp-
son & Co., Boston. Mechnnicnlly it is
executed in a very neat style, although its
outside appearance is rather common
place. Its matter as far as we have had
lime to examine, is very good ; but not
remarkably startling.
The celebrities both in England and
America have been engaged as contribu
tors to this Magazine, and we trust it will
prove well worthy of patronage.
Among the contributors, we notice the
names of Prescolt, Emerson, Bryant,
Longfellow, Hawthorn, Whittier, Holmes,
Lowell, Curtis. Whipple, Quincy, Par
sons, Mrs. II. B. Stowe, Mrs. L. Maria
Child, Mrs. C. M. Kirkland, Mrs. Pike,

Fobty-Seven States. Would any

are Oregon, Kansas and Minnesota, whose
constitutions are already formed or form

ted the coining winter, making the num
ber' of the confederacy thirty-four. Then
New Mexico, Nebraska and Washington
already thriving Territories, will swell the
aggregate to thirty-seven. Four new
States to be carved out of Texas, accord
ing to provisions in the treaty of annexa

included in California, would make forty

Evidence are good for anything.
Matteson Thrown in the
Shade, by the Transcendent,
Sublime Rascality of our would-be-Delegate
I
The friends of the Hon. D. B. Chap
man were thrown into great consternation
last evening, on becoming aware of the
fact that he had by his grasping cupidity
and avarice, rendered himself liable, to
fins and imprisonment, by violating a law
of the U. S ; made and provided for just
such case?.
It seems that Gen. Peter A. Sarpy
plared in Mr. Chapman's hand for prose
c,,,ion a clui,n "8ai"8t ,h U- p. 'freas-
ury , i. mi wis iirni iu iw? jjushtu vy mc in-
dan Luna, aid which Mr. Chapmnn
agreed to gel ullowed for an interest in the
same, or i fee of a thousand dollars I
(read the law below!) The fee of
a thousand dollars was offered and accept
ed! The barefaced and utter recklessness of
taking pay for services illegally rendered
in prosecuting a claim against the Treas
ury of the U. S ; and then signing a re
ceipt for the same in direct violation of
his solemn oath, and of a law upon this ex
pre subject, shows a hardihood worthy
the spirit uf a Brigand.
We know of no case so clear, so appar
ent, so glaring in all its details as this.
We know of no instance of a man occu
pying the position of Mr. Chupmau at the
time of the commission of this gross act,
in which all regard for principle, h nor
and law were so woutoidy set at defiance.
The attempt to defraud Gen. Sarpy
an old Indian Trader in these regions for
tho last thirty years, and a pioneer whose
weary foot-steps, was one among the first
to bruve the elements and the savage foe,
to explore the mysteries and beauties of
our fertile plains to defraud one whose
better portion of life litis been devoted to
ihe best interests of our Goveriimet and
the extension and expansion of our yo mg
Western Empire one whose locks have
grown grey in the whirling storiur of ad
versity and care, was crime enough to de
serve punishment, even hadhede.edno
law.
The circumstances that Mr. Chapman
demurred to giving a receipt for a thous
and dollars in his own name is evidence
enough that he was perfectly aware of the
penalty attending such a criminal act. He
desired Gen. Sarpy to take the receipt of
his brother-in-law, Mr. Lockwoud, but
Gen. Sarpy refused, as Mr. Lockwood
was not ihe man he paid the gold to. We
have only time to place another deed of
the deepest die to this man's " Moral
Grnudc-ur. " The papers are in competent
and eminent hands and die case will be
proceed with immediately, and we have
not the slightest doubt of Mr. Chapman's
conviction. There are other papers and
evidence of a similar nature in another
case of the tame kin I that will be brought
to light soon, we und -rstand.
But here is the evidence of the fraud
and crime, and the law for the punishment
of it:
RECEIPT.
Received of Peter A. Sarpy, One
Thousand Dollars, the same being pay
ment in full for my expenses and services
in FRosEcuTiHo and collecting his
cliam against the Omaha, Oloe, and Miss
ouri Indians.
Dated, St. Mary's June 29th, 1S57.

Pebiohal. We hod the pleasure of
meeting in our city last week, Hon. S. A.
Strickland, of the Bellevue Gazette, and
Nebraska Legislature. We were glad to
perceive that Mr. S. was in the enjoy
ment of excellent health, and in np way
depressed by the prevailing "bard times.'
He speaks most hopefully of the future of
the Territory generally, and of Bcllevvb.
in particular, and represents the condi
tion of the Gazette as being as prosper
ous as its most ardent friends could wish,
a circu-nstance which, for his sake, we
are rejoiced at. Strickland deserves to
succeed ; and will. Untiring, energetic
and shrewed, with an indomitable will
and perseverance, he is just the man for
a new Territory, just the man to aid in
the developn cut of her resources, and to
advapce her interests; and so, while en
gaged in promoting her good, cannot but
further his ow n in the general progress
" a consignation devoutly to be wished."
