GOING A SHOPPING. Did you ever go a shopping? I suppos? n^t. Gentlemen hare no genius for shopping They arc not equal to it. Nature has left their faculties iinpcrfect in that particular fhoy can write books and make speeches, and al! that sort of thing, but they are not up tc shopping It takes the ladies for that. Men go to a store and select what they want and ouy it. But that is not shopping?that re quires no genius. Men pretend they don't liko to go shopping with the ladies. I wonder whoever asked them ? What lady would have such an en cumbrance on such occasions? Men are well enough in their nlaces. Young gentlemen are convenient to ta<e us to concert!, and see us home from church, and bring us boqueta and music ; and husbands are useful, I suppose, to pay the bills, Ac , but for a shopping ex oanton they are quite out of place. Do not understand me to insinuaiv tii?t x hare any distinguished ability that way. Not at oil?I only speak for my sex. In fact I ac knowledge a poor hand at it But my friend Sallie Z. is a model shopper. I am taking lessons of her, and hope to be peifected by the time I am married. A few days since she in vited me with her. " I wish to look at the new style silks,'' said she. " Why, do you want a dress ?" said I. " Really," said Sallie, 44 if it was not im polite, I should say you were a verdant. I don't want a dress?but there's no reason I should'nt see the materials." So Sallie and I sallied out. The first store we entered, she asked whether the merchant had r jeived his spring goods. lie said he had, and inquired what she would liko to see 41 Show me your new style dress good*," said she; '? such as baregw robes and lawn robes, handsome striped and plaid silks ; brocades and changeable silks are not much worn this spring, but I'll look at your solid colors." The merchant soon had his counter spread with goods. She examined and tossed the pieces about, making various ugly creases in them to tee whether they would come out again by rubbing. 44 W hat stylo is worn ?" said Sallie. ''Well, wo sell probably mo.o plaids and gtrines than any other " "Have you any with the chene stripes?" "Oh yes, some very fine," and a variety of I iecei were produced. 44 Well,* I can't say, after all, that I like the chene stripe ; it looks 'ike the old style revived. I prefer the plsid*; the green is very pretty.' So Sallie held it in various lights, rub bing and creasing it. " Well, it don't crease much," said she, "I wonder whether it will cut?" "No, it is a boiled silk, and we find the plaids and stripes usually wear well." 44 Your silks are ouite pretty, and you may cut me off samples, continued Sallie. This the merchant was forced to do, though with rather a bad grace, as most of his gwo is were in patterns, and he feared spoiling the picce. 44 Will you be kind enough to give me sam ples of tho solid colors " These were als^ furnished. " This plaid, you say, i? one dollar thirty. Eeven cenLs that the lowest?" " Fourteen." 44 I'd rather have eighteen; perhaps I might conclude to have flounces. Hell, X 11 take tho samples and show my mother, and then make up my mind. Have you any Coates' cotton? Give me a spool, No. This was handed her; she paid five cents, and wo left 1 looked at my watch. ? e had been there cxactly a full hour. "What a cheat! I can buy these spools for four cents," said Sallie, when we were fairly out, "and be: ides, we forgot their shawls. So we went to another store. '?Have you Stella shawls'" "Yes, some beautiful ones just opened? Would you see the broche borders, or the printed?" "Both." ??>? "Any particular color? "No?I'll look at all of them,' said Sallie. j Different colors, qualities and patterns were accordingly produced. "What is tho price of this green centre brocho border7" inquired Sallie. "We can afford you that at nine dollars? j same style sold for fifteen two months ago ? 1 Some printed borders we can put at four dol- i lars and fifty cents." j "No; 1 prefer brocho, but can't you tako : loss?" I saw a twinkle in the merchant's eye, which mado mo think he knew she was only shopping "Now," said he, " if you won't mention it, I'll let you have it for six." Sallie looked surprised. She knew that style of article was selling at nine. 44 Six do"ars?is that your lowest ?" *' Well?to oblige you, I'll say four." A pause. " Then you think that four dol lars is your very lowest?" 44 Ahem ! We have a large lot, and I want to dispose of them. I'll say two dollars and fiftv cents!" Still longer pause. " Are you suro it is a first rate piece of goods?" 44 I'll warrant it al' silk and wool " My friend was caught Turning to me sho whinnered : 441 do wish I had brought some money!' and then, addressing the merchant, she ssid : 44 I'll call again." " I never was so glad to get out of a store before, for the clerks had gathered arounl us seeming to understand the joke. But Sallie went home, got the money, and insisted ou my iviuruliig n 1 t-U Dvr to iliv store tor tfce shawl. The trader said he was sorry, very? but the shawl bad just been sold. And was Sallie, too, I thought We went shop ping no more that afternoon. IIow to Bshave is Church.?Our readers ?ball have the benefit of, and may reflect up< u the following bints on churoh etiquette : For Gentlemen ? Fancy upon opening rbo door everybody will look at you, and boar yourself bravely until you get your seat. Then pass your hand over your hair to see if the hour's labor you spent on it has n:>t been in vain; then take a good long stare over the congregation to see who is there If you chew tobacco blaze away into the seat behind you, if unoccupied, or else let drive at your neigh bor's patent leathers. Scratch your name on the back of the front seat, with the likeness of a cne-eyed hippogriff, stare'frequently at the pretiy looking girl behind you. and if possible send her a note assuring her that she has the orettiest hand, or the most exquisite eye of olue this side of Paradise. After having ex hausted all reasonable amusements you may shut your eyes, open your mouth, and favor the congregation with an extempore snore. Alter the service is over, do the agreeable, ;f possible, to some divinity, and thereafter write yourself a brick. For Voting Ladies?Spend four hours in fixing out before starting, for it u ?ver7 J??ng lady s duty to look pretty, bearing in mind that ladies were created for the especial pur poses of being worshiped by the gentlemen, and attracting their unqualified admiration Step gracefully and damtly up the aisle, seat yourself again, and repeat six consecutive times. Pull the outer garment a little way over tha left shouldor, then back on tho right, and after doing this a few times, leave it wuere you found it. Straighten down your collar, and then straighten it up again, pull out a highly perfumed handkerchief, pass it over your Hps, and then return it; smooth down both ?idesoi your dross, and thrust tho too of>our THE WEEKLY 8TAR.

Tbe origin of the dinner we found in the minutes of the Council, which are well ^reserved in the Secretary's office. It ia as allows: On the 30th of November, 1773, the Council met and it was arranged " that on to-morrow (the 1st December) the Honorable House of General Assembly should meet in the Council Chamber for tho purpose of electing a Prexi dent and Vice President, agreeably to the constitution; an 1 that after tbe election is finished, the C<>uucil and Assembly procee 1 to the C*urt House and there make a procla mation of the President and Vice President so chosen ; and that after proclamation being made, the Council and Assembly do dine to gether at the city tavern '* I11 pursuance of this arrangement, tbe Hon* orable House proceeded to the Council Cham ber on the 1st day of December, 1778, and Jo seph Reed was elected President, and George Bryan was elected Vice President The two bodies then proceeded to the Court House, where proclamation of the election was made, after which tbe members adjourned to tbe city tavern and partook of a dinner, of which tbe following bill of items is rendered : The General Assembly of the State of Pennsylvania, To GtFroRD Dally, Dr 1-t Dec. 1778 To providing a dinner for 270 Gent. ? 500 00 522 bottles Madeira wine a 15s.. 122W 00 116 large bowls punch a60s...? 348 00 g .< ?t toddy a30s.... 13 10 j) 44 " sangaree a 60s. 18 00 24 bottles port wine a30.? 36 00 2 tubs of grog for artillery sol diers 36 00 I gallon spirits for bell-ringers. 6 00 W6 wine glasses (broke) 1(1. 6d. 36 00 2v jelly 44 (broke) a7s. 6d. 10 17 6 9 glass dessert plates (broke) al5s 6 15 II china plates (broke) a 20s .. 11 00 3 44 dishes (broke) a67s. 6d 10 02 6 5 decanters (broke) a30s 7 10 1 large inkstand (broke) 6 0ft 14 1b. spermicetta candles a30s. 21 00 ?229$ 15 It will be Fcen by the above bill that the tliCU lliCii B B ?U1>.

Tbe Sound Di es ?A British Parliament committee are occupied in obtaining informa tion iu relation to the Sound dues exacted by Denmark At a recent meeting of this com* mittee, Mr. Pearson, a partner in a Hull mer cantile house, gave evidence against the con tinuance of tbe dues. He stated that the El sinore roads were very narrow, shallow, and intricate; some shipa are compelled to remain there all night, others longer; it was fraught with inconvenience and danger to all who had to stop here and pay the imposts. The charges attached to tho collection were extortionate and vexatious. The only return Denmtrk makes for the tribute is the keeping up of lights and bu >ys, and providing now and then pilots to run the ship from Elsinore to Copcn hagen. a distance of about ten miles. Ho thought neither the lights ru.r i.ilota necessary. It seems that the payment of the dues by the captain of the ^arah S. Bryant, under protest, created much ex -iteui?:nt among the officials, who lodged a counter protest with the American consul. Some surprise was manifested that the Sarah S Bryant chould have been charged only the dues paid by privileged nations, as the treaty between Den mark and the United States had ceased, but this was explained by the news announcing the new arrangement to continue the lull for a prescribed term.
