rteen years ago, Fanny Fern made an engagement with Mr. Bonner, to furnish an article every week for the Ledger, and thereby hangs a tale, the most wonderful fact in this veracious biography: Behold I from that time to this, she has never failed one week to produce the stipulated article, on time! Think, my reader, what this fact proves! what habits of industry, what system, what thoughtfulness, what business integrity, what super-woman punctuality, and O Minerva — Hygeia! what health! Aspasia was, Plato says, the preceptress of Socrates; she formed the rhetoric of Pericles, and was said to have composed some of his finest orations; but she never furnished an article every week for the Ledger for fourteen years. Hypatia taught mathematics and the Philosophy of Plato, in the great school of Alexandria, through most learned and eloquent discourses; but she never furnished an article for the Ledger every week for fourteen years.

band has good reason to wish it were not. Precisely thus did an Athenian view a Lesbian woman; and if she collected round her a class of young pupils for instruction, so much the worse. He could no more imagine any difference between Sappho and Aspasia, than could a Frenchman between Margaret Fuller and George Sand. To claim any high moral standard, in either case, would merely strengthen the indictment by the additional count of hypocrisy. Better Aspasia than a learned woman who had the effAspasia than a learned woman who had the effrontery to set up for the domestic virtues. The stories that thus gradually came to be told about Sappho in later years — scandal at longer and longer range — were simply inevitable, from the point of view of Athens. If Aristophanes spared neither Socrates nor Euripides, why should his successors spare Sappho? Therefore the reckless comic authors of that luxurious city, those Pre-Bohemians of literature, made the most of their game. Ameipsias, Amphis, Antiphanes, Diphilus, Ephippus, Timoc

apprehensiveness! How transcendently lovely was the face of one young angel by Raphael! It was the perfection of physical, moral, and mental life. Variegated wings, of pinkish. purple touched with green, like the breasts of doves, and in perfect harmony with the complexion, spring from the shoulders upwards, and against them leans the divine head. The eye seems fixed on the centre of being, and the lips are gently parted, as if uttering strains of celestial melody. The head of Aspasia was instinct with the voluptuousness of intellect. From the eyes, the cheek, the divine lip, one might hive honey. Both the Loves were exquisite: one, that zephyr sentiment which visits all the roses of life; the other, the Amore Greco, may be fitly described in these words of Landor: There is a gloom in deep love, as in deep water; there is a silence in it which suspends the foot, and the folded arms and the dejected head are the images it reflects. No voice shakes its surface; the Muse

r. George Sand disappoints me, as almost all beings have, especially since I have been brought close to her person by the Lettres d'un Voyageur. Her remarks on Lavater seem really shallow, and hasty, à la mode du genre femenin. No self-ruling Aspasia she, but a frail woman mourning over a lot. Any peculiarity in her destiny seems accidental. She is forced to this and that, to earn her bread forsooth! Yet her style,—with what a deeply smouldering fire it burns!—not vehement, but intense, more unknown? Shall we multiply our connections, and thus make them still more superficial? I would go into the crowd, and meet men for the day, to help them for the day, but for that intercourse which most becomes us. Pericles, Anaxagoras, Aspasia, Cleone, is circle wide enough for me. I should think all the resources of my nature, and all the tribute it could enforce from external nature, none too much to furnish the banquet for this circle. But where to find fit, though few, represe

i, Che in fronte scritti per gran doglia porter. Deh, fossi tu men bella, Ò almen piu forte! Filicaja Oh, not to guess it at the first. But I did guess it,—that is, I divined, Felt by an instinct how it was;—why else Should I pronounce you free from all that heap Of sins, which had been irredeemable? I felt they were not yours. Browning. Nests there are many of this very year, Many the nests are, which the winds shall shake, The rains run through and other birds beat down Yours, O Aspasia! rests against the temple Of heavenly love, and, thence inviolate, It shall not fall this winter, nor the next. Landor Lift up your heart upon the knees of God, Losing yourself, your smallness and your darkness In His great light, who fills and moves the world, Who hath alone the quiet of perfect motion. Sterling [it has been judged best to let Margaret herself tell the story of her travels. In the spring of 1846, her valued friends, Marcus Spring and lady, of New York, had decide
strive to learn humility; And trust in Him who rules above Whose universal law is love. Thus only can I kindly view The world that I am passing through. When I approach the setting sun And feel my journey well-nigh done, May earth be veiled in genial light And her last smile to me seem bright. Help me till then to kindly view The world that I am passing through. In 1836 Mrs. Child published Philothea, a Greek romance in the time of Phidias, Plato, Anaxagoras, Pericles, Alcibiades, and Aspasia. It was pronounced the crowning achievement of her intellectual efforts, and was received with something of the enthusiasm that had greeted her early novels. Everybody read it, every library contained a copy. It is one of the pathetic reverses of the whirligig of time, that these same copies are now dusty and unread, completely out of favor with modern sensational taste. The classical allusions in which it abounds are carefully explained in an admirable appendix, which closes with a pas
new art, which he calls the Cataplastic, and defines as "The whole art of beautification of the face, form, and costume." He says that "cataplastic processes" have hitherto failed to produce their full effect because not combined under the direction of a single competent professor; and adds, that in order to obtain the full and brilliant success which these processes are capable of insuring, it is necessary to combine the sure and efficacious products of the dermic chemistry of the line of Aspasia and Alcibiades, of ancient Rome, and the Middle Ages, with the modern inventions of the hair-dresser, the corset-maker, the worker in gutta percha, the dentist, oculist, orthopedist, pedicure, tailor, dressmaker, and the jeweler. The Cataplastic artist unites all these specialties in his own person, and proposes to issue a weekly newspaper, in which all these elements of the great work of "Beautification" are to be treated of, and in which accounts of results obtained are to be duly commun
