W ere the computation made, we have si.v, and then ^o t o i wotild find that ninur-thnths of our buy a nice loaf of bread” “successful men” were those who with- _\\Vhy what do I wn out any extra ordinary'share o f gunics, had risen to theif present eminence by diligence and perseverance in the line they had chosen. Nor can it be well itherwise: the knovyledge of any busi- less is not born with us; it requires nuch time and attention to master its details and even then there is so much elbowing and jostling to g et forward in the race o f life, that it. requires almost whole of our mentul and bodily 3 abreast with the petitors who have started in the same diroexion. If begin to dissipate our energies ity o f objects )ing aside froi tions of her nature ; the lady is made ay up of bustles, cotton, ribbons, figured in cloths, flowers. &c., tied, together, in fantastical shapes,wiih needle & thread, and overshadovved with lace and rogue To the woman, the outward adornings matter little, the graces and the beau ties of the moral being, everything whilst both the perfections and'ihe im­ perfections of the woman are covered up-r-are completely smolhered—hertealfi those outward adornings which are put id off at pleasure. Thi t of gold,silv()r, precious stones, and shining attire, twisted and plaited, now into one form, and -tnon into anotbe)’, bi so much does the womau excel the lady; and, itir asmuck as the highest production of Omuipotence excels the patched, bog­ gled, and blackened manufacture ofhu- man artisans— by so much does the man excel the gentleman, and the woman the lady. The pj'oceding was suggested by the following from the New Grleans Herald: “Men are quarried from the living :k as with a thunderbolt. Gentlemen ! moulded as ihe potter’s clay by the inly fingers of fashion. Wonien are the spontaneous growth of a warm, rich soil, where the wind, blows freely, and the heart feels the visitings of God’s ev- er-changeable weather. Ladies are the offspring-of a hot bed, the giowihiowin oft a n-house, tended the g o a green-house, tended and watched, lest the winds of heaven may visit their fa- es too roughly, til! they are good for othii g as women, at any rate, as wives nd mothers.” If these things be so, to call a female a lady, is a doubtful compliment, if not isitive disgrace ; whilst the appella- 1 , she eonsen- cept when bo' iged to .yoii, I by hair. Hd lat can be bestowed tm the other sex— so high, that it should be used hui seldom, tbongh lady should be, as it is, almost universally applied to our feini- nineSi Plan, top,, should be but seldom, used; while gentlemen are as common flies in summer. God gra ly have as many vvoinen ve mushroom lnilies,and as f we now have women ; and that gentlemen may be converted into men-— that, in short; themay take the ate of the artificial.
