¦ ' t_* ¦ -«~o~* : , EXTEAVAGAJJCE IS FEMAIETOESS. Ifc is far from our intention to set ourselves up as arbiters of fashion, or to enter into minute criticisms on the attire of the other sex. On the contrary, we have been disposed to some latitude of our views as to the sovereignty of taste in the regulation of matters of dress. The taste may be so pure as to claim admiration, or it maj.be so outre as to awaken pity or ridieulej but good or I bad, we ha _< _ye not regarded it within our province to adjudicate and determine. Neither piety nor irreligion are to be inferred from the colour or shape of a garment. Pride may be found associated ; with' the extremest plainness, and it is to be presumed that the_^ graces of the _Spirit may be culti'"' vated under a tnore fashionable exterior! There is, however, one aspect of this subject which , from its moral bearings, cannot be suffered to pass without comment- It is an abuse so prevalent ; and so rapidly diffusing itself as ...

LOVE _CONdUERS. we are glad to give a pleasant and torci illustration of the potency of Divine love in its influences upon the wayward heart. Indeed, lovo has a power which can be wielded by no other agency, and oftentimes the moral miracle which it effects excites our wonder, our admiration, and our gratitude to its divine Author. The _following incident was related, not long since, by one of the speakers in a convention of Sabbath School teachers: There was, in a certain Mission School, (Railroad School, "as they call it,) near a railroad depot in Chicago, a certain old lady, as teacher, whose heart never grew cold toward children—whose love for them was always fresh and green. She had a class of unruly boys placed in her charge. They could not be restrained. Sabbath after Sabbath they had let out their wicked natures in the presence of their teachers, and it was thought nothing could be done with them. Teacher after teacher had given them over in despair, and resigned the c...

A MISSPENT LIFE. A distinguished statesman lay on his bed death in theeity of Philadelphia. He had talents, fame and influence. His name and labors were associated with the early efforts of our country to achieve its independence. But now his genius, fame, and power yielded to the mandate of the great destroyer. They were nothing to the once proud possessor, as he paled and trembled before the "king of terrors." Agitated and wretched, he hade his servant bring him a card. _^ He took it, and wrote beneath his own name, in capital letters, Remorse. Then turning it over, he wrote upon the other side, Rbmobsb. Soon his physician came in, when the dying man handed him the card, and be read, Eemorse. "Turn it over and read," said the sinking statesman. The physician turned it over, and read JJemorse. " Yes," added the despairing sick man, "that is the whole. It is all remorse!" Although he had rendered signal service to his country in times of peril, and had talents and learning to ...

THE KIND LITTLE GIEL '& very poor man had a very good little girl. She had a fat, chubby, sweet face, and her cheeks looked like peaches when they are ripe.. Her hair hting in ringlets all over her head, and some rich fathers would have made her look like a fairy with nice dresses and costly Win kets. But Lulu's father was poor, and her clothes were only decent j tut she, sweet girl, was kind and good, which is better than to be rich. Biches have spoiled a great many little girls, but Lulu had no choice to be spoiled in this way. One day she saw a lame old man going by, Wretchedly olad, with a pack on his back. , Lulu thought he must be cold or hungry, or need something to make him comfortnble; so out she ran, without saying anything to her mother , and soon overtook the stranger. "Man!" iaid she, "my father always gives poor folks something to eat; won't you come back and get some bread?" The old man turned about as if he were surprised. Perhaps he thought a bird of...

» '_^ *— , _ GIRL HEALTH. It will be an immense advantage when the day comes for boys and girls learning and playing together as children of several foreign countries do. Climbing trees is admirable exercise for everybody; and so is cricket, and trap-ball, and ballplay of all kinds; and racing and jumping. Instead of this, we see not a few schools where the girls, after sitting and standing all day, are taken out for a walk in the twilight, to save lighting candles. They seldom feel the sun; they have chilblains and other ailments from bad circulation; and in such schools nearly every girl has more or less distortion of the spine when she has been there more than two years. In the last century people knew no better. Little girls were put upon hard benches without backs, and so hjgh tnat the feet hung in the air; and so p_6rche4, they were required to sit bolt upright, and sew for hours together. The consequence was, the-i "deformed shoulder, the' humpback, the weary, aching sp...

m ^» m ¦—~ The Slave Trade.—Advices to the New York papers from the African coast, to Dec. 20, state that the vessels now engaged on the African coast in this piratical traffic, may, be_. numbered, by dozens, _ar.d that the larger part of them are owned by Americans and have regular Custom House Clearances from New York. The* captains of many of these crafts claim;to be engaged.in the palm-oil trade. But this pretextis a transparent subterfuge, as the vessels have not the equipments necessary to carry on this traffic, nor is the oil for. which they come to the coast produced in sufficient quantities to furnish cargoes for a small fraction of the fleet which pretends to be waiting: for it. It is represented that if our _Government sincerely desires to suppress . . the business, numerous steamers of light draught should be placed on the coast, and that Congress should pass law_^ limiting the number of water casks and rice bags which these vessels may carry. . , Tea Meeting.—The Lo...

A _PTtOTEST AGAINST EARIiY _RISING. Dr. Hall, in the February number of his Journal of Health, says: "One of the very worst economies of time is that filched from necessary sleep. The wholesale but blind commendation of early rising is as mischievous in practice as it is arrant in theory. Early rising is a crime afairist the noblest part of our physical nature, unless it is preceded by an early retiring. Multitudes of business men in large cities count it a saving of time if they can make a journey of a hundred or two miles at night by steamboat or railway. It is a ruinous mistake. It never fails to be followed by a want of general wellfeeling for several days after, if, indeed, the man does not retnrn home actually sickj or so near it as to be unfit for a fall attention to his business for a week afterward, _^hen a man leaves . home on business, it is always important that * he should have his, wits about him; that the minjei should be fresh arid vigoTons; the spirit lively, ...

¦ HOW TO STOP A _QTTAREEL. "Yielding pacifieth great offences. "—Eccl. x. 4. If knowledge is power, so also is kindness, There is: weight and influence in kind words and kind deeds. An angry man went to a neighbor's house to pick a quarrel ; he was invited to eat some peas, and finding no opposition he soon left. After a while he came again, and the good woman went out and offered him a . piece of pie. It was kindly done and kindly meant, and so there was no quarrel. The remedy is simple, and it is worth a thought by those who may be similarly,tempted. An angry man is, for the time, without reason; passion rales, and it is better to treat him kindly than to attempt to reason, or even to reply to his hard words. Treat him kindly, and if he will not be pacified, let him have all the talking to himself, and he will soon get tired and ashamed, and leave you. Possess your soul in patience; never contend, never give a harsli word. Be kind and forbearing, and you will have no quarrel...
