A FRENCH LADY OF FASHION.

ry day. Her complexion seems, i par-: <• -
parent red and white; showing tho vv nv
1 think she dresses with more taste and t|r
gance, take her cue time with another,
any o her woman I have known ini’arts. Site
is beautiful to appearance, and I can scarct-U
believe her faded, though I am ’old that 'he is;
and that the grand climacteric of her charms
was some fifteen or twenty years ago, when she
Was of the most udmiied beauties at (he court
of Vi-min i.
When I first saw her, I oisrod her on the
Stairs, ns she was going mil with her hat on.—-
She struck mo at first sight as a model of real
elegance. I thuughl her a worn hi of twenty
five. In figure, is of medium height, slight
and delicate. On doser examination, I should
have thought her more than twnnty-five,—it
might *be thirty. She'-has a son about Iwen’tv.
She affects nothing girlish in her dress, but
wears mbst those things which are common to
iii’idi and matrons. Nor is there ever :mv
thing about her appearance which could offend
the eye of prudery i'self.
I would you could have seen her is she
came to our dinner table yesterday dressed for
the O|jera, where she his a box far the season.
Her dress was silk velvet, of rich in noon
color, nude to tit her shape i xicth; —or her
shape to fi' th it, I c ui'io’ siy which; Inn there
were no exaggeration by which to detect art. —
her throat was slightly displayed through a frill
ol blonde lace, —her belt w is perfectly match
ed in color with her <lress, and fistened with
exactness by an elegant buckle. A golden
«hain was thrown over her shoulders, depend
ing with a graceful sweep over back, and in
front falling to her delicate waist—her black
hair, it might be her wig, was tastefully cttrlod
&, arranged over her forehead A: set off her clear
complexion, which blended tiie rose and lilly.
Her h.it was of surpassing elegance, neither
too largo or toosmill, worn as if placed by the
bands of the graces. Its color was the shade
of a fiesh damask rose. A slight trimfiling
of the same color rose a little above the top
of the crown, nnd over the front was thrown
ti beautiful curtain of white blonde. I think 1
Live seen her wear a small tuft of white
plumes on tho same hat; but she probably thinks
with the blonde this would bo overdressing, and
she always hits the precise- mark.
Our l iench ladies admire and praise her
taste, and often appeal to it, though they
sometimes make a profound ci ittqno after she
his left the room. She is the lady in her
m Hiners, us in her dress. Her language
has its own peculiar style. But amidst tho
b idinage, llieio is a something in her ex
press! ms, as well as in the twinkle of her
bright dark eye, and in her laugh, that is
sometimes ns if she derided those to whom
she spoke. They call her witty. 1 should
think her suiiic.il.
Onco when we were in the saloon for the
evening, she rately shows herself before din
ner, and no gentleman present, w? were
looking at one <>f the prints of the Journal
drs )l > les, which I iv upon lhe centre table,
she came up, broke into one of her giggling,
itiiiiicdl Hughs and i.najcJi itclv threw her-
j Svlf Inlo the stiff affected attitude of lhe CID |
; graved figure. She was truly comic, and in j
j this attitude would hive made a fine subject
! for the elegarjtly comic pencil of Leslie. But
a thought struck me at the moment, which .
' half mad • me weep. These figures, said I ;
’to myself, thus ridiculed by those who tin
' dersfind dress in its perfection, by which the I
I very milliners vs Paris, who send them a-j
, broad, would not for the sake of good taste, I
modesty out of tho qnes'ion, dress themselves,
’hese are the very patterrs by which my
j young and lovely country-women are making!
j themselves up:—the idols to which they some*
i times sacrifice decency and piopriety.

/A correspondent of the Springfield Gaz

count of a inirri tge ceremony at one of the
)F. lends’ meeting-houses, at which he was
j proscu.: “Upon the front seat of the pl it-

upon it a mighty parchment scroll, upon which

I'he scroll is then handed to oue of the speak

\ briglit-cyed little girl, eight,, or nine years ol
age, conics into our office every Wednesday, nnd
asks, “is our paper printed!” The paper is hand- ,
ed to her, and she generally requests us to “be so
kind as to put a wrapper around it, to keep it from
being dirted?” Finding her to be intelligent-, <N. so
particular in keeping the newspaper clean, we. a
few days since, had the curiosity to ask her il she
read the paper after she arrived -at home. Her
ready answer was, “I read the paper through every
week---! am very fond of newspapers, for 1 find so
many interesting things in them and they learn
me to read.” We then mentioned that we should

she “did no: forget, for she was always so ■

iug to’that act; and do hope that nothing will take
place by any of (hose engaged in the admini-trtiliort
oi the Laws to impede the progress of ill.-settlement
ot this country. We have learned with salist tcliori.
ot the course of the Agent and admire that firm and
I manly manner in which he has gone into, nnd c<-n
--| tiiiues. the discharge ol his arduous duties. 'l’tiougli
I irotn the nature and importance uftlie duties imposed
I on the Agent by the law under which he acts, it enn-
I not be expected that he can at once reconcile both
j parties claiming at the same tone possession of lauds*
j but trim) the character and ability of our ives
feel assured that the law will be fully admin ott rml,
and we here take occasion to express our wish that
nothing (nay lie made to embarrass or interrupt Inrti
in the discharge ot his duties; in taking this v iew of
the Lillian subject we will further stale, (fiat in
our opinion the late laW governing the (.'ln-rokees I'd*
ly provides for the Indians and was intended at iho
i same time to relieve the state of a portion of that fr.tia
j who have once sold their interest to this countrv; it
cannot be doubted for a moment that those reSi*rve'es
(lave always, and still continue, to be the most invet
erate enemies o( (he. Administration in is policy i; 4
lhe removal ol (he Cherokees. But should th-oj.
ject ol the late law be defeated, il will fi x down upon
itsa people whose language and mariners differ with
I those ol lhe whites; and should they reutain a (ew
j years longer, they will be doomed to ding cut a miser
able existence: but should the views oftlmgoverrt-
I inent be advanced Ly the nntlioritie< of Georgia ic
will evidently be a means of relieving ihe i?l o'ri»
genes of dur country from a state of degradation to
I which they ar- ta t approaching.
