We gave an article last week on the imprudent use of the fruits now beginning to crowd our markets. Too much cau tion cannot be observed in this respect, for we have no doubt that much of the sickness of which people complain at this season of the year is caused by their own imprudence. The following suggestions on the sub ject are timely, and we recommend them to all our readers: "Instead of standing in any fear of a general consumption of ripe * fruits, we regard them positively conducive to heal t h. The very maladies commonly assumed to have their origin in a free use of apples, cherries, melons, and wild berries, have been quite as prevalent, if not equally destructive in the seasons of scarcity.? There are so many erroneous notions en tertained of the bad effects of fruit, that it is quite time t...

It is with much regret that we notice in the June number of the popular Maga zine of the Messrs. Harper, an article pur porting to be a casual letter from a visitor to Washington which contains an attack on the Equestrian Statue of Andrew Jack son, by Mr. Mills, the American artist. f In alluding to this mistaken arid un called for article, we are apprehensive that we shall unintentionally give it more notoriety than it deserves; but a sense of duty to our leaders, and especially to our gifted countryman, the designer and executor of that great national work of art, forbids that we should keep silence. We write, however, it is but justice for us to say, without the knowledge of Mr. Mills ; and our statements, therefore, are wholly free from the least particle of dictation. The letter in...

EVENING STAR. A Sharp Tran?action.?Wall Street Shaved. Some days' since, as a well known financier was just leaving his office in Wall street, after a busy day of stock and banking operations (which had evidently been satisfactory, since his countenance wore that pleasant expression which is compatible only with unqualified success) he noticed a countryman, with slouched hat, homespun coat, and thick mud-cov ered boots, driving along a cow and calf The cow's udder was brimming full, so that fine streams of the lacteal fluid were running from her teats. The thought of? pure country milk crossed the broker's brain, and the temptation to secure a lux ury induced him to pause. "I say!" cried he to the countrvman. "Ilallo, yerself," replied the rustic. "That's a fine cow you have there." "Waal, yes ; pretty smart animal, I reckon." "Where do you come from ?" "Dutchess county, a leetle back o' Po keepsy. Been drivin' all dav round town: consarned tired, eny haow." "Is your cow for salt "D...

Her dress gem-rally nas two or three green spots upon trie front breadths, her shoes are down at the heel, and she scuffs about rather than walks. She is too lazy to open the windows to air her chamber ; too indolent to take her night dress out of her bed* too inefficient ro throw back the bed clothes. She yawns over her breakfast, laughs with her brothers about some young "gent,"' hopes " somebody can .ake hinrs," looks over the morning papers and reads the marriages, the concert notices,, the new play at the museum, and what is going on at the Athenaeum, and then sits over the parlor register with a yellow-covered book of the last trash literature, till her mother sa...

It is then that the riotous portion of our young men (mostly from other cities) meet together; and though we have a <lSunday law," whiskey is easily obtained by them.
