Education of Amencen School Girls?A Horrible Discovery. W? hire been suspicious far A long while that we hed failed to disoover the great cense of the miserable bodily condition of ao manj young women in what is oalled fashionable society. We had observed that a very large proportion of thein, notwithstanding their wretchedly chosen diet, and other drawbacks, retained a very comely appearance of health and rotundity when at school, which they loet as aoon as they were allowed to commence the midnight dissipations of the ball room. This with our knowledge of the legitimate result was rufflcient, and we oonsidered the matter settled. LatoSy, however, we hare had the opportn nity of conversing with an intelligent young lady who has had the usual opportunities of a fashionable education, and sh? anures us that there is an almost universal horror of boing fat, that causes great numbers cf thein to drink vinegar and eat chalk and s'.ate pencil dust to avoid gHining ilesu ! She tells up that nearly all who desire to be ''elegant" in their fijare adopt these horrid practices as the readiest means of averting the conse quei;ces they dread. This we call a horrible discovery indeed ; that it was practiced, we were aware, among many unfortunate youcg peopleewho had not the advantages of caretal domestic instruc tion ; but when informed of its general pr?va lence, it strikes us with peculiar horror. Thitt in the very bloom and outburst ct' her wo minhood, at that period when the Creator designed to impress her with the crownirj. g;ory of her true nature and Ilia power, when He has made the countenance speak love ao i maternity, she should defy Him and cut c? the lite current?this is hojribU indeed ; and the consciousness that the frightful practicc obtains general currency, is a sad thought for the parent and the life-tearher. Very few persons imagiue the extent to which this suicidal perversion of the natural instincts will go, in young women who are under the influence of their imaginary supe riors in what they consider graceful thinner ; much has been said about tight-lacing, and because the corset has partially gone into dis use, people imagine that the compression of the lungt has ceased; it is far otherwise; hooks and eyes and whalebone have taken their place and the insane devotee willingly starves herself by the year ! One designing woman, evicus of tbe beauty of an as&ociate to whom nature has given a figure of beautiful rotundity and health, will set two-thirds of her acquaintances half crazy to emulate her bony proportions. A h* art less and vicious school girl hu only to blow up her chceks and say " fatty," to the weak minded girl to whem nature and a happy home have given perhaps great personal beauty, and who erj->ys the degree of vegeta tive life which can alone give her a constitu tion that will fit her for the duties of a wife and mother?and she has been stung by a viper that renders her miserable for life. Soon the roses fade from her checks, the beautiful rotundity of her person decreases and fades; tbe parent's heart bleeds, and be consults his physician He, either ignorant, indifferent, or selfish, gives some absurd pre scription, and leaves her to her fate. Chlorosis (the result of imperfect nutrition,) senes her; she loses her spirits and refuses to mingle in society, which, bad and enervating as it is is now her enly hope, and her only ehance for life is marriage aid maternity?about an eren one between life and death. Compare all this, which is so common in America, with the results of the diaciplia*] and education of young girls in England There we find the daughters of their aristccracy often leading natural and healthful lives, wearing suitable clothing, and shoes with ?oles thick enough to keep tbe electric force of youth in the body, taking free exercise on foot in all weather, miles and miles every day, blooming with health and happiness and laughing and playiDg at blind man's buff with 'heir fathers and mothers. Here, conceited, ignorant of all useful knowledge, coid, calculating and impudent, the young girl is taught to look out for a rich husband from tbe moment she enters 4< socie ty "?a horde of over dressed and ignorant people who eschew all intellectual pursuits and live on vulgar emulation of their superiors io extravagant expenditure and ridiculous pretension Such is tbe result of our American system of education; such will be the mothers of the next generation Oh for a society of educa tional missionaries in this city ?Scalped Preparation for the Passover.?From M >rdiy of the present week the P?ssover of tbe Hebrews being only three weeks off, the Jewish population of the world are already making preparation for its celebration The preliminary requisite is to obtain tbe nnleav ened bread " Of this the Louisville Journal lays: This Matiot cake is baked almost exclusive ly in tbe city of New York, and thence sent to all portions of the country It is made solely of tbe beet wheat flour and pure water. A certain quantity of water is added to a certain weight of flour It is mixed up?not kneeded as the housewife or ordinary baker does com mon dough, with the hands; nor yet as the pi lot bread maker does, "with his feet;" but broken with a sort of a lever, one end of which acts upon a hinge and the other end i> raised up and down by a boy, who sits upon it and springs himself up and down very much as boys do who play "see-saw." The dough after being broken undergoes n. rolling process between two sets of rollers It is then placed upon tbe feed board of an ap paratus similar to a cracker machine, an.l it is then subjected to another rolling, after which it falls upon a linen duck apron, which carries it alofig under the cuttter Here it is by one operation cut into round cakes, and at the sime time perforated with small boles at equal distances. After the cake is baked it is packed and sent off in basket" The Matzot is very good and pleasant to the taste, but modem Christians could hardly rec oncile themselves to eating it almost exclu sively for the eight days tue 11 Feast of the Passover" continues. Tuacivo rio.uRE* on marble ?A novel and unique method has been discovered for tra cing figures in relief upon marble with great facility. In the performanceof this operation, desired fieures are first traced upon the mar ble with chalk; they are then covered with varnish made ?f common Spanish sealing wax, dissolved in spirits of wiue, after which a mix ture of equal parts of ac:d of salt and distill ed vinegar is poured upou the marble, which corrodes the ground while the figure* remain in relief, as if engraved, saving tbe cost of time and expense.

Y. Bz press. Tuu Isacucbatios Ball at Washikgto*. Tha editor of the Cleveland Plaindealer thus notices the great Inauguration Ball given here on the 4th : The dancing here was semewhat Cl peeoo "liar." It was mainly quadrilles, so called, ranged crcssways of the hall, with head sets only in contra-dance style. The changes were few and simple, such as right and left,forward nnd back, ladies change, and then repeated. There were no side sets?no regular cotillons at all. The want of variety in this metropol itan dancing was, however, fully made up by the fancy flings, such as the waits and polka. These were absolutely barbarous. The old fashioned waits, the morality of which even Byron called in question, is here ignored as altogether too cold and distant. The lady here lays her head on the gentleman's bosom, puts one hand in his and the other in his coa'. tail pocket, then resigns herself to hia em braces, and goea to sleep, all but her feet, which, when not carried by him clear off the floor, go patting around on the tips of her toes The gentleman, thus entwined, throws his head back and hi* eyes up, like a dying calf; his body bent in the shape of a figure 4, he whirls, backs up, swings around, swoons, to all appearances pushes forward, and leaves the ring to tho great delight of all deoent people. The belle of the ball was the great object of inquiry all the evening So many fine ladies, fine dresses, pretty eyes, pretty moutbs, Gre cian noses, graceful forms and good looking people, never were assembled in Washington or any where else before So many orders of beauty, as many different tastes in dress; and such costly displays of the ornamental, pua zle intensely all lovers of the beautiful. But we at last made the grand discovery We found the belle, and luckily, too. from the grea* State of Ohio. She was a native Back eye Venus de Medicis! Wasn't ahe a beau* ty ? She is the second daughter of the Hon David T Disney, late member of Congress from Cincinnati. She is tall, straight, grace ful in her carriage ; haa blaek eyes and hair, a brunette, we should 6ay, with fine rosy lips and red cheeks Her skirt was of rose pink, covered with a double skirt cf lace em broidered ; her head dress was crimson velvet leaves, with gold clusters of grapes, and en opera cane of scarlet cashmarett, embroidered with gold and silver Although many there were who were lovely, she was the lovelieet of them all- It m-ty be proper to say, in thia connection, that Mra. Pugh, the lady of our worthy young Senator, was not present. A correspondent of the New York Jour nal of Commerce, writing from Florenoa, aayt 44 Every American, as well aa every one with a taste for high art, viaita the atndio of Mr. Powers, the sculptor I found him in his working dress, with cap and apron, standing among his breathing marbles. He is a plain, gentlemanly, and remarkably ULaaanmirg man. The statue of 'America,' just oom pie ted, is packed for shipment, and I saw only the model It is a spirited figure, trampling on chains, with onahand raised aloft and point ing upwards. Penseroro' is a recently fin i.-hed work, about to be sent to New York I hope it mty teach our belles that hoops and tight lacing are not essential t? beauty of furm Mr. Powers is at praaant engaged upon a statue of 4 California,' I believe for Mr Astor, of New York. The model is only sa yet completed. It represents a beautiful fe male figure with a divining rod in one hand, the other conoealing behind her a bunch cf thorv\ The original modela of all the cele brated w ork a which hive issued from this a udio are preserved here ; the Greek Slave, Eve, Fisher Buy, dc., as well as the busts of m%ny eminent men who have set to his cbi?el. Among the idealities in this interesting work shop, is the admired Proserpine, and a sweet little Psyche, one of the lorelieat faces that ever smiled in marble." Is it not disgraceful to us as a nation that while we give commissions in profusion to fcith rate American sculptors, for the embellish* ment of the National Capitol, our great artlat, Powers, in whom every American feels a just pride, is passed by in utter negleet ?
