calico, and they will spend from five to fifteen
dollars’ worth of time in making it up, which is
wasting so much of the substance which God
has given them on the lust of the eye, and which
should be devoted to a better purpose. It adds
no beauty to a lady, in my opinion, to adorn
her with feathers. When I look at a woman I
look at her face, which is composed of her fore
head, cheek, nose, mouth and chin, and I like
to see it clean, her hair combed neat and nice,
and her eyes bright and sparkling: and if they
are so, what do I care what she has on her head,
or how or of what material her dress is made ?
Not the least in the world. If a woman is clean
in person and has on a nice clean dress, she
looks a great deal better when washing her
dishes, making her butter or cheese, or sweeping
her house, than those who, as I told them in
Provo, walked the streets with their spanker jib
flying. It adds no beauty to a lady or gentle
man to have a great many frills on their dresses
or coats; beauty must besought in the expres
sion of the countenance,, combined with neat
ness and cleanliness and graceful manners. All
the beauty which nature bestows is exhibited,
let the dress be ever so plain, if the wearer of it
be neat and comely. Do not fine feathers look
well ? Yes. they are very pretty, but- they look
just as well on these dolls, these fixed-up ma
chines which they have in the stores, as any-
say. while if they wish to smoke they must ac
tually ask permission of the women or leave the
room.” Observing which, the philosopher con
cludes that it is time for learned men in Japan
as well as in England to stir themselves lest the
power of the other sex expand until it becomes
so overwhelming that it will be uncontrollable.
The error he thinks has been brought about by
“the want of a correct view of the dictates of na
ture;” and he closes with a solemn admonition

The accomplished writer of this beautiful
book has visited the localities of the opening

woven with his reminiscences of those sacred
scenes his most earnest and devout reflections
on Christ’s Epistles to the Seven Churches in

attractions to this most sublime and mysterious
book in the Bible. The Christian reader will
find a treasure of unspeakable value in the pe

Southern Literature.—When the question is
asked, “Has the South a literature?” there is
given by way of answer a list of the books writ
ten by Southern authors. And truly indeed the
list is not discreditably short. On theology, on
political science, on history, on purely literary
topics, Southern men and women have written
both largely and well. Many books we could
name which have emanated from the brains of
Southern authors which could not be stricken
from our libraries without serious loss. Yet in
the face of these facts, we would still assert that
our literature is not yet distinctive—that it is
not sufficiently Southern and idiosyncratic. We
have some books which very ably set forth the
Southern idea of political science, and have at
least one history which portrays grandly our
conceptions of the late “War Between the States.”
But no one has y#t arisen to depict, with ability
and faithfulness, with the correctness of the his
torian and the brilliancy of the poet, the scenery
and people of our section. We have had no
Fielding or Dickens to paint the lower and
rougher classes of our society; no Jane Austin
to mingle in our drawing-rooms and portray the
manners of our gentility; no Scott to make the
lakes and rivers, plains and- mountains of our
wide-spread domain classic by his pen. Our
best writers have followed the great lights of
fatherland, and have striven not only to write
good English, but have endeavored to make
everything about their books as English as pos
sible. Mrs. Warfield, for instance, whose “House
hold of Bouverie ” was pronounced by able crit
ics to be the most powerful work of fiction ever
published on this continent, is a resident, and,
, we believe, a native of the South. But that-book
has nothing Southern about it. Its scenery, its
people and its incidents are all English. The
same is true of Miss Evans, who justly deserves
to be considered one of our very best novelists.
But though she locates her stories in Georgia or
Alabama, it is English scenery which she de
scribes and English people who are her actors.
The same remarks will apply in a greater or less
degree to all of our romance writers, both male
and female. They have turned away from the
rich material which has lain so abundantly
around them, and have followed English au
thors as slavishly as Virgil and Homer. As for
the greatest literary genius which the South ever
produced, he may as well have been born in
Lapland or New Zealand as in Virginia, so far
as any influence exerted by his surroundings
upon his writings is concerned.
So we think that we may say in truth that
here is a virgin field for the literary pioneer, and
one as rich in beauty as were the hills of Cali
fornia in gold. In painting our varied scenery
of mountain, hill, plain and river, there is play
for the most delicate rhetoric. One may produce
characters as original and as imperishable as
those shaped forth by Scott, Thackeray or Dick
ens. Nor is our history at all deficient in stir
ring incidents through which the heroes of ro
mance may be led. But what we chiefly want
are quiet stories of every-day life, which shall
faithfully portray the manners and customs of
an age now past. We believe this genius will
appear—not to-day, perhaps; it may not for
years yet When he does come, however, he
will found a school which will give us a real
Southern literature, and will make the Southron
as he was more loved, respected and admired
than he ever has been.
I have remarked, like a connoisseur before a pic-

race of invalids. They are a pale, nervous,
feeble and back-achy set, with only here and there
few noble exceptions in the persons of the

contour and style. Then she daintily re-ar
ranges a bud or a leaf on the outside, putting
the bud over the leaf or the leaf under the bud,
as it may be. Then she shakes up, in a light,
airy way, the plume, but immediately proceeds
to smooth it down. Then she closely scruti
nizes the quality of the velvet, the texture of the
ribbon and the character of the lace. By this
time she is prepared to perform the great act of
trying it on.
Getting before the mirror where she can ob
tain a fair view of herself, the dear woman pro
ceeds to smooth down her hair where it lies
in days gone by. Fashion, folly and foolish
ness have rather got the best of them, and it now
remains for them to die old maids, or let no-ac-
count husbands get the best of them.” It is sad,
girls, but it is true. You had better take more
“kitchen exercise ” and less parlor comfort; you
had better wrestle with a wash-tub more and
“paw ivory” less. Good housewives will be in
demand after awhile, for all sensible men want
wives who will prove to be helpmates, not “ help
eats.” The poor-houses and lunatic asylums
are crowded now.
The Odd Trump: A Novel. New York: E. J. Hale!; Sou,
Publishers, Murray Street.
It lias been our pleasure on several occasions
to write favorably of the publications of the
house of Messrs. Hale & Son, and in the above
issue we have one of the purest and best novels
of the age. The scene of the story is laid in
England, and the two principal characters, the
one English and the other American, are well
sustained throughout. But we confess it is the
side personages which appear in the plot, which
have interested ns most. The splendid passages
at arms between an English Radical and an
American freedman, in which the latter routs
the former effectually, constitute a rich treat for
the reader. We have here both argument and
entertainment in abundance, and such as se
cures intact the most virtuous feelings and sen
timents of the heart. We accordingly com

wealth of the invention of the author of this
