AMERICAN VULGARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 25 September 1875

AMERICAN VULGARITY. ' What is an American ?' is tho title of a remarkable article which appeared in tho May number of tho Atlantic Monthly. The folio wing is a summing up of the writer's analysis of the question : —The basis of our nationality is English ; our standards like our lan guage are English—but 1 why are we so different from the English ?' Then follows question on question, each oponing a vista of suggestivnnoss :— What is our physical typo ? Tho toll, straight, slender, yet muscular | form, large deep eyes with sweeping lashes, clear complexion, splendid teeth, calm and serious mie'n, which one sees commouly among the Maine and New Hampshire lumbermen, which we know so well in the western regiments during the late war, and which one meets with nowhere else in tho world ? Or the sallow, puny, ill-made, insigniQ cant, nervous, restless human creature whom we know everywhere at a glance at tho compatriot ?

Uur.own magistrates ofteo delignt the officials of their courts by their witticisms, bat tlioir humour is not to bo compared with that of tboir brothren of the United States. The other day, according to the Detroit Free Press, 'a little bit of a man, wearing1 a bilio'us-looking plug hat,' and speaking in child-like tones, was placed in the dock. ' Why for, thou seedling ?

' I'm a prisoner, but I'm entitled to bo treated with respect,' squonked tho little man, standing on his tiptoes and growing rod in tho face. 1 Respect fully, your obedient servant,' replied his Honor, waving his hand around with inimitable grace. ' I won't be made fun of—I tell you, I won't ! ' squeaked tho prisoner. ' Pun ! fun ! ' repeated tho Judge. ' Sir, this is a serions world, with four pounds of heartache to one old-fashioned grin.

When the Shah was here, uo remark he made was more relished than his question to the Prince'of Wales while the dance was going on. ' Why do you not employ servants to do this for you ? The perspiring Prince could hardly explain, but society generally seems inclined to rognlate dancing to the corps de ballet. A lady was recently beard to say, with a sigh, 1 What with being tied around above and tietl around below, I haven't had a good square sit down for three months.' When a large ball is given there is an apology for dancing, a few mincing steps are taken, but presently tho compauy falls to admiring each other's dresses, and it all ends in masic and. talk.

The Inspector of the second telegraph     wire now in course of construction between Wagga and Young, and the contractor, Mr.   Gunn, are camped here for a few days; They were kept some time at work between Bethungra and Stoney Creek, having to   make a diversion of the road on the higher     ground, to allow room enough for the rail way bank, when finished, passing under it, the old wire being just level with the top of the embankment.

HOW FASHIONS ORIGINATE. (Daily Nevis.) Trace a fashion to its origin, and you will nearly always find that it springs froi) the consciousness of a defect, and a wish to mask it. The fathorlaud of crinoline is Spain, and a spanish Queen first wore hoops to dissimulate unequal hips. A. Venus of the Boulevards, who committed suicide by throwing herself over a balcony a few years ago, rovived tho high-healed shoes which Louis Quatorze originally brought into fashion to appear taller than the King of Spain at the meeting in tho Isle of Pheasants. A lady who derives pres tige from rank, fortune, and striking beauty scalded her aria three wiuters back. An ugly mark bore witness to the accident. She thought of wearing to conceal it those long-armed gloves, which, out of morcy to tho plebeian wives ofNapoloon's marshals and gone rals, the Empress Josephino adopted. Tho hats slanting dowu over tho oyo brows wero the result of a lady of elovated rank losiug her front hair. Queou Elizabeth's ne...
