In lieu of these cold elves t Hev now of Latante upon von Man with themselves. Or hearers a poor excuse is generally acknowledged to he belter than none but Llie excuse that Lucy gives tor girls making insects of themselves is almost too weak to Bear up the weight of a serious consideration. If the girls suppose that our Young Nice. Have grown so selfish anti churlish of locate nothing about giving them an occasional affection at squeeze they surely Nusl be ignorant of the nature of these bipeds. They May not squeeze so much nor so often As the fair candidates for being squeezed might wish for the Good reason that the latter love to tantalize a poor fellow Liy tii rowing out Especial invitations and then run i it v for the Vinko of being Tun after. Hut my friends just give n Young Chap a fair Chance at n pretty girl and if to does no to give her such a hug us to Muke her think a Patent bed a Crew was Pul to iter i la forego my Faith in nil mechanical operations. 1 belong to the masculine gender myself und know something of this mutter by experience. 1 Tun a perfect steel trip in my Way. Let a female just rub against my Breust Pim with a fond look in her Eye Ami my arms Don t remain in a Rutig Lor More than half a moment at the longest it is All nonsense for the girls to complain of not being sufficiently squeezed. If they would Only put themselves in thu Way of being loudly pressed they have to wait Long for the gratification of their desires. This is the Cuse in the town where 1 belong and 1 have to doubt �3 the same All the orld Over. My dear girls 1 like to see a Small Waist of Well anybody and females with hourglass shapes always suit my fancy much better than your dutch chum soap barrel slab sided sort of figures but i done to want the credit Given to corsets. To nature and nature alone belongs All the Praise. La sooth Lovely girls that portion of your fair persons which you Are the most Apt to torture is the most tender cd Yiu Cun never meddle with it with impunity. It is of Vitul importance that it should remain exp by As the god of nature has formed. By squeezes your waists into in unnaturally Small ctr cum Eranee you compress your Livis into the narrow Tommasa of a few Short years a you done to tvo the Bellows in your bosoms a Chance to blow quid keep Bright the Llames of existence the warm glow of health soon leaves your Cheeks and flushes by fits a by stuns like a Hull choked Gas burners your ryes 1,1 b Abri time Cense to sparkle Wanh Joy and love tour roses of Beauty quickly Lude and full a you a a Kas Dull and worn out Asun old Moon in the by boning. And us Pale and sickly of sunlight strained a Srougi the windows of a Catholic Cathedral. Now i my interesting Young Creteur Csecs what do you Guin by your self squeezing you improve in appearance As you think one part of your persons to the detriment of another at a sacrifice of health and those Roseate charms which Bloom upon your Youthful features and the face certainly is the most attractive part of the female form divine. My dearly by loved and interesting Young females it is absurd for you to defend the tight lacing system wih the plea that you Ore not sufficiently squeezed by the beaux for 1 verily believe that were they to hug you every Day with a strength of affection equal to forty horse Power you would lace just As tight perhaps tighter. The Only Good excuse you can offer is this most and i May say All Young men Admire n Small and delicate Waist a especially when based upon u Broad and solid foundation and As it a sin accordance with your natures to a study to it must be expected that great sacrifices will be made to Merit their approbation. The principal fault and blame therefore belong to them while the weakness and Folly Are your. As for As my taste is concerned however i can to say that i Ani liable to be fascinated with those dyspeptic misses from Whoso system Tho cruel corsets seem to have pressed almost every article of life vigor and animation. No a give me the plump Mellow Juicy unlink ered by Art Young Maiden fresh As it were from the hand of nature As Blooming and As fragrant 03 the wild Flower moistened with the Dews of morning. That s the sort 1 like and i very much doubt if there is a husband in the land of the living but will approve of my Choice. Dear girls if you would All but follow the simplest dictates of nature without resort to Art or trickery just of Many marriages a a now occur would take place and far More Happy. The traps that you set Are Apt to deceive Only the simple and foolish. While the More knowing ours keep at a respectable dist uce and the consequence is that you yourselves Are brought to repentance when it is too late for tears and tear your Sirtut ivaness to Avail. Par cuts i be careful that your daughters turnout to to something More than bottle bottomed spiders which weave webs to catch the silly Flics of fashion and Folly. Teach them to walk in Wisdom a ways to adorn the mind with perennial Flowers rather than decorate the person with blossoms that Bloom but to fade and happiness shall be theirs inc world in the world through the world out und in n world to conc. So Mote it be a runaway apprentice is Tylius described in an Eastern paper a a lie is thick set usually wears a glazed hat five feet High and Iron shod shoes with Cross eyes a a i say fellow some individuals think 1 am a Frenchman and some take me for an italian and now what do you think i no a Why 1 think you re a darned fool a replied Jonathan. The two most precious things on this Side the grave Are reputation and life yet the most contemptible whisper May deprive us of Tho one and the meanest weapon of the other. Of All actions of a Man s life his marriage does least concern Oiler people yet of All actions of our life it is most meddled with by other people. If one Pine tree can Moke pitch How Many will make a Pitcher ? if one twinge of pain makes an ache How Many will make an acre t messes. Editors a the following remarks Are from u respectable foreign journal. They arc in a High decree respectful and at the Samo time so True in regard to the american people and their inimitable system of government founded by men of tried patriotism Puro hearts und Wise Heads that they really deserve a place in the columns of every paper in the land. The intelligent and observing Reader will at once perceive How marked the difference is Between the Chaste the True and at the same time generous sentiments contained in the article in question when contrasted with the Low the vulgar the miserable party Slang of the Day. On this Point it is not too much to say that the one doubtless emanates from a Correct source while Tho other is culminated in vitiated taste corrupt habits and shameful recklessness in regard to matters of fact. It is hoped however that to proportion As education is fostered and intelligence obtains Over our country All attempts to mislead and deceive by the dissemination of such Trush As that to which allusion is hero Mode will like their authors find their True destiny. A a it is impossible to live in the United states ten years and observe the Gigantic Progress of this Young people in the career of republicanism without appreciating the immense advantages it Hus derived irom its form of government or without desiring that other nations May follow in its Luminous track. But the Intro closely the american notion is studied the More acc fully its social and political organization is investigated the More clearly is it seen that this organization has Jimmu Tabic Laws which alone give it Success und grandeur. It is not merely because they Aro Republican that the american people live become powerful Rich and Happy it is because the Republic restricts itself to certain conditions und limits. The proof of this is that while it ascends to the highest Points of civilization the republics of Mexico und South America which have almost literally adopted its Constitution have gone Down the social scale until finally they Are plunged in the abyss of anarchy and misery. In the United states the Republic hits been successful because Tho people Are Republican by character Ami education and the system is in accordance with the customs. The american is Republican because he is imbued wit i the Scull meet As Well of his duties of his rights Aud feels the love of discipline not less intimately than that of Liberty because he believes As clearly unnatural inequality As in Legal Equality because he has a Sovereign respect for property the object and lawful Security of Lubor und finally because he is at once profoundly religious and profoundly calculating a qualities one which gives him Hope and the other a an american newspaper should teach the people their True interests and duty their duty to themselves to their children to a world struggling for Freedom and searching for an example of a pure and permanent Republic. By it let Tho people to taught that the a free government Are not ils name but in Tho Perm Ucucu and purity of its institutions and that it is made secure Only through the general and equal intelligence of the people.
