V NEWS, ' SOCIETY, GENEALOGY VOL. 2. NO 31. New York Belles' Baths. The luxurious habits of New York women have grown nearly to rival the stories told of Poppsea, who had bushels of fresh rose leave* picked every night to sleep on. and, who took a daily morning bath of asses' milk to keep her skin soft and satiny. This is not quite the form that luxury takes here, but the amount of time and laboi spent in the care of the person and me preservation of beauty is something calculated to surprise the people who give it no attention. The maid has ceased to be sufficient attendance, her time being more or less absorbed by the t<>ilet and cognate matters, so the present plan is to engage the services of a woman who goes out by the day or hour, and whose cards read "Ladies' Toilets.", V She has entire charge of the persons of her customers, and it is her duty to see that they are kept beautiful. Once or twice a week she rubs, combs, brushes, clips and cleans their hair...

Lynchburg Society Dots Correspondence of The' Critic. The tea given on Thursday last by Mrs. Stephen Halsey to her guests, Mrs. Ed ward Abbott and Miss Marian Abbott, of New York, was in all respects one of the most mjojable affairs ever attended in this city. The soft glow of artistically shaded lamps, the superb lilies and roses visible on all sides, and the handsone toilettes worn by pretty women, rendered the parlours of the hostess —always beautiful—a scene as though from fairy land. The ladies who assisted Mrs. Halsey in the entertainment of her guests were Mrs. Charles Heald, white lace and pearls; Mrs. Edmund Schaefer, pink faille and diamonds; Mrs. Holmes Smith, a Worth costume of Nile green brocade and point lace; and Mrs. Frank Lee, black lace and diamonds. Mrs. Halsey wore an exquisite toilette of pink silk with black French lace draperies, and Mrs. Abbott, white and blue Pompadour silk. The young ladies who gracefully presided over the coffee, tea, and chocolate were Mi...

NEWS, SOCIETY, GENEALOGY VOL. 2. NO 32. Sermon by Dr. Jackson ? or the Critic. "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle ... again«t flesh and blood, but against principalities. against powers, against the rulers of the darkness ol this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God, tiiat ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand."—Ephesians VI., 10-13. These are brave resolute words ; the language of a man who has mea sured the enemy, knows his strength, but fears him not. It seems to me that in the old days of Christian chivalry this must have been a very favourite passage with iLe knights panoplied with brave armour, -aad bear ing upon their shield the cross of Cru saders. I can imagine many a paladin attuning bis spirit to their martial ring before the d...

Children's eyes That make pure, halloaed age seem young indeed— Wan eyes that on drear horrors daily feed ; Learned deep in all that leaves as mo«t unwise ! Poor wells, beneath whose troubled depths 1 ruth lies, Drowned, drowned, alas! So does my sad heart bleed When I remember you; so does it plead And strive within ray breast—as one who cries The torture of her first born—that the day, The long, bright day, seems thicker sown for me With eyes of children than the heavens at night With stars on stars. To watch you is to pray That you may some day see as children see When man, like God, hath said, "'Let there be light." I'ear Christ, Thou hadst Thy childhood ere Thy cross : These, bearing first their cross, no childhood know. But, aged with toil, through countless horrors grow To age more horrible.

Society in Other Gities. Correspondence of The Critic. Lynchburg'. The first sound of "revelry by night" which has gladdened the ears of our pleas-ure-»eekers since Lenten quiet reigned was on Tuesday evening when the spacious parlours of Mrs Edward S.

There were abcut one hundred and fifty invitations cut, to which the recipients gladly responded, and from five until eight o'clock this grand old home stead, with its oak-shaded lawn and view of river and mountains—noted as being one of the most beautiful in this vicinity—was the scene of uninterrupted pleasure.

VOL. 2. NO 35. A Fair Female Stranger. Lippineott's Magazine. IN Saint Paul's church-yard in Alexandria, Virginia, is a marble tombstone bearing this inscription: TO THE MEMORY OF A FEMALE STRANGER. Whose mortal sufferings terminated on the 4th day of October, 1816, aged 23 years and 8 months. This stone is erected by her disconsolate husband, in whose arms she breathed out her last sigh, and who, under God, did bis utmost to soothe the cold, dull ear of death. How loved, how honoured once, avails thee not, To whom related, or by whom begot; A heap of dust alone remains ot thee, Tis all thou art, and all the proud shall be. The strange inscription has raised much conjecture, and many contradictory legends have grown up in the neighbourhood. The facts, as nearly as known, are that in May, 1816, a handsome man and a beautiful girl arrived in Alexandria upon an English vessel and took quarters at a hotel. They were accompanied only by a valet. The girl was affable and charitable, the g...

The bird soars upward to his nest; The young leaf on we tree cop high Cradles itself within the sky The streams that seem to hasten down Beturn in clouds the hills to crowu; The plant arises from her root To rock aloft her flower and fruit. I cannot in the valley stay; The great horizons stretch away. The very cliffs that wall me round Are ladders unto higher ground. To work—to rest—for each a timet I toil, but I must also climb.
