III zvx x s c c.z. l a :i n o u s THE HDiilY ACTOR;' OR, Emptj Stomachs xerstis Empty Pockets- BY PAUL CREYTON. One day, last summer, during the pre valence of the cholera, a slim young gen tleman, of a remarkably hungry appear auce, and with a sharp eye, which gave him a wonderfully intelligent look, might have been seen walking leisurely to and fro before the entrance of a popular eat ing house in the Granite City. One might have thought, from appearances, that the sole object of the young gentle man in lingering in that vicinity was to snuff the fumes of roasted meats and smo king pies that were placed in tempting array before the guests of the house; but if we take the liberty to examine his se cret thoughts, we shall see that he aimed at something more substantial than the mere odors of good cooking.

Mrs. Swisshelm editress of the Pitts lWg Saturday Visitor, makes petticoats the test of womanhood, and will hear of WO compromise nor coalition with the oth ,r .sex, except upon the entire abandon ment by the ladies of. the pantaloons.- Mrs. Swisshelm defines her position in an article commenting upon Mrs. Fanny Kem ble's reported appearance in public places attired like a man. The following is an extract from her protest: "But we cannot still believe she dresses really like a man. If we did, we should think very little of her. Most likely, her rambbling, fishing, exercise costume, so much talked about, is some fanciful im mitation of boy's surtouts something like tho short dresses and drawers worn by missis.
