Jyt-lmt i T I EVENING STAR. MABBIAGE IK RUSSIA. The Summer Garden of St Petersburg po<. sesscs another attraction, which it shares witk no other that I am aware of, nave with the ' garden of the Tuillerie* at Paris Like th? chestnut shaded avenues of the Tuilleries. thii ) garden is tbe afternoon resort of crowds of th? most charming children, who repair thither, escorted by their mothers and nurses, to peo ple the solitary walks, and make the shruhbe i ric* refund with their innocent mirth. I Fifteen or sixteen vcais later, these chil | dren re-appear upon the same scene, but thi tiiuc with less artless attentions, and to piny a more perilous game. On* Whitsuntide aftor Doon are there to bo seen, ranged in long rows, dresed in their best, and often bedecked with costly jewels, the daughters of the middle elass of Petersburgcrs. Matrimony is the ob ject of this display. It is a show of brides. Young bachelors, disposed to marry, now w*ik up and down the lino of damsels, criti j cully inspecting them as they j>a?s. Should . their eyes indicate that they have made a I choice, a inatch-uiakiug friend of the young ' lady's steps out of the rear rank, joins the would-be wooer, and takes a struil with hiui through the garden, informing him of the | girl's circum.-tances, of her family, dowry, housewifery qualities, etc., and obtaining from him similar information concerning him*elf. Should they so far come to as understanding that the consent of the lady and her parent* alone remain to be obtained, tbe match-maker conducts her candidate to the mother, who in troduces him to her daughter, invites him to her house, and a wedding is,tbe most usual result of the acquaintance thus singularly commenced. Odd as it may seem, expsrienot daily pfoves that these marriages, originating entirely in the pleasing impressions and tym pathy awakened by a first giance. are, for the ?noft part, productive of much happiness. This is certainly attributable, in a great mea sure, to the lact that a Russian of the nrdile class expects very little fr m his wife; aud the richer he is, ihc hss he expects. About the qualities and accomplishment. which a German of tie same class takes int com-id? ration when selecting a wife, suei. us education, economy and the like, the Kusti an troubles not uis he?d. A rich Rus sian of tho middle class, requires nothing irom his wife hut that she should be handsome, dressed with taste, apj?ear elegantly attired the first thirg in the inon.iug, and sit all day long upon the sofa doing nothing, or, at most, reading a novel or knitting a purse. 11c detects to see his wife busied with domestic matters. The6e aro occupations for servants. HLd should the mistress of the house make theiu hers, she would lower herself Lot only in her husband's eyes, but in thor-e of all around her. To sit in state and receive company is the Rissi.m ledy's sole business. Under "this state of things, the education ot children i.* of course much less attended to taan were desirable. The bays, however, reg ularly attend the schools, or are sent to b<>ard at education*! institutions; and as to th girl", that w!ich ia required ficai tlr m as women, 13, as Wv have already >cel?, so^jfV little, that how small soever the ca"- Hes^wW^I upon their bringing up, it nevertheless is found suffi cient. but Icertiimy do not rdvis<- any Oer man to seek a wile at St. Petersburg Whit:ua tide festival Wedding present* r. re not customary in Rus sia. On the other hai d. there is a lon^ stand ing patri <rchal custom, which has been pie served with s mv variations to the j d;:y. I one m rniii^ met an acquaintance, who hur ried I y mo with unusual precipitation. " Whither away in such baste . ' I asked. li 1 have no time to -pare.'' was the reply. ''I ha\e bread and salt to buy.'' " Bread and salt! Have you not both at home ?" '? I will tell you another time At our next meeting I received f?n explana tion. From tirn^ immemorial there has ex isted nmorg the Ru-sian* a custom that a per ron changing his house should receive from each one of his acquaintances a loaf and aonie salt. Tbe meaning of the usage m ty possibly be the kindly wish. May y-.u never in your new dwelling be in want at least of these two things. As the people becnnJT' more polished and refined, they brought the salt in a little barrel, aud the bread on a pKte or in a bis ket. Later still when civilization led to lux ury. these unadorned roccptacles were ex changed for co.-tly ones. The .-imple gift of bread and salt was presented in boxes and baskets of silver and gold And at the pre sent day the bread and "ait are wholly omit ted, and the busket stands for the contents To avoid monotony, the salt box is replaced by a costly vase, tLo bread basket by a I vice of plate or some other rich present. There is no cbangc, however, in the formula of pre sentation As though to excuse, by verba# humility, the exaggeration and extravagance of the gift, the donor never fails t<. beg kindly acccptance of ?' bread and salt."?Jerawnn. Fev vi e DroRiDATtos ?During the fire on Thursday night the observer of human nature hal an opportunity to see what degradati n many youug females are brought through ini prop r association* and evil temptations which are set before them. There were six sinks of iniquity on Watch-house Court, two of whi~b were on fire, containing some thirty or forty to males, tho majority of whom were of tender years, though utterly destitute of modesty or shume. Among them are many whose future was doubtless the solitude of devoted mothers, and whose womanhood was looked forward to as a time when the aged parent could lean with confidence for affection and kindly attentions. It will scarcely be accredited that children of not more than fourteen years are by the prom ises of pleasure and dress induced to forsake their homes of comfort for these resorts of in famy . yet such is the fact. Tbe House of Refuse should be opened to them, and the severest J>enalty of the law visited upon those who are ;nown to be guilty of inveighling mere chil dren to their dera of pollution. A Magdalen society similar to that in successful operation in Philadelphia, where they could approu h with confidence, knowing that their intentions would not be spurned with indignation, would do much to wiu some of them ba ;k from shame, and if only one could be reclaimed by the ef fort, it would repay all tie trouble in the heartfelt satisfaction which follows an act of christian chaiity.?Baltimore American. A singular trial has just termir.ated in the Oneida Circuit Court of New York It is that of Emily C. Day vs. Volkert W. Ruth and Nelson Roth. By the testimony adduced, it appears that Volkert Roth wooed and won the heart of Mi.-s Day, in England, whieh is her home, and tormcd an engagement of mar riage with her. She had about ?2.500 :n money, which Volkert persuaded her Co en trust to his keeping, in order that he migKt c. me to America and establish himself suffi ciently to enable him to return and marry her, he engaging to pay interest on the sum regu larly. For a time he fulfilled this latter sim ulation, but finally endeavored to get rid of the marriage, and the obligation to pay the money, by representing to Miss Day that he had failed in business. He had also maua^ta to mix up his brother with the affairs so much, that it was a question which had the property.

It seems that for mora than ? week put a number of st ranger? were observed lounging about the place without any visible inject in view. On the ISth of July suspicions ^ere aroused that these parties were no bet ter than they should be. and the vender* of le gal equity and justice caused the arrest o( three of the unknown worthies who had favored our town with a viait. and upon an examina tion of said parties before a Magistrate'a Coutt, to the astonishment of all. the hnndaome^t on? ?f the prisoners was a young lady about 17 years of age, dressed in male attire, traveling under the special protection of and cohabiting with a certain individual who gave his natna a* J.
