Declining l*die*. es pecially married ladiss. are more given. I think, than men. to neglect their personal appearance, when they are conscious that the bloom of thoir youth is gone. I do not speak of state occa sion?, of set dinner parties and full dress ball?, butof the daily meetings of domestic lite. Now, however, is the time, above all others, when the wife mutt detemine to remain the pleasing wire, and retain her J"bn Anderson's affections to the last, by neatness, taste, and appropriate variety of dress. That a lady has fast growing daugh ters. strapping sons, and a husband hard at worlt at his offioe all day long, is no reason why she should ever enter tho family circle with rum pled hair, soiled cap, or unfastened gown. The prettiest woman in the world would be spoiled by such sins in her toilette. The morning s duties, even in storeroom and kitchen, may be per formed in fitting,tiny costume, and then changed for parlor habiliments, equally tidy and fit tingj The fashion of the day should always be reflected in a woman's dress, according to her position and age, the eye craves for variety as keenly as the palate; and then, I honestly protest, what ever Her age, a naturally good-lookin* worn mi is always handsome. For, happily, there ^exists more than one kind of b?auty. There is the beauty of infancy, tho beauty ot youth, the be iu ty of raatnritv. and, believe me, ladies and gen tlemen, the beauty of age. if you do not spoil it by your own want of judgment. At any age a woman may bo becomingly and pleasingly droned. The other error?the more pardonable of the two, because it shows an amiable lovo of ap probation and a desire to please, though it im plies weakness?is a continuation of thecostuiao and decoraiious of youth after they have cea.-e<l to bo fitting ornaments for the wearer s age. I must say that ladies in general are less ?d dicted to the mistake thau men. Tho number of quinquagenarian females who display them selves in society in white muslin frocks, with thoir locks in ringlets, and a girl's pink snsh tied behind, is considerably less than that of old bucks, with their padded substitute for muscular grace, their wigs, their jewelry, their perfumes, and even thoir rouge. Baldness, in men, is neither a disfigurement nor a disgrace To soothe your personal vanity, you may call to mind that many young and handsome men are bald; to console your intellectual dignity, remember that u valvi, prompti, ' ready are the bald?an invaluable quality in the affairs of life. As a rule, the harder we foeies try to convert ourselvos into boyish cupi<L>, the leao do wo succeed. There is a groat truth in Alphon*e Kan s re marks that modern men are ugly, because they don't wear their beards. Tak? a fine man of forty, with a handsome round Medician beard, not a pointed Jew's beard, look at him well. soj as to retain his portrait in your mind s eyef and then shave nim close, leaving him, per haps. out of charity, a couple of mutton chop whiskers, one on each check, and you will see the humiliating difference. And if you select an old man of seventy for your experiment, and convey a snowy-bearded head that might sit for a portrait in a historical picture, into a close sc raped. weazen-faced visage, like an avaricious French peasant on his way to haggle for swine at a monthly franc-man;be. the descent frotn the sublime to the ridiculous is still more pain fully apoarent. Beard or no beard, must re main at present an open question in England ; there are social difficulties of a practical nature in tho way, however we may decide as to the theory. A servant would hardly be allowed to consider his beard as bis own. A bearded tradesman might be thought by many custom ers to be giving himself airs and to be assuming undue consequence. Many find fault with bea*ds, as too aristocratic, too vulgar, too for eign. too phiktsophic, too symptomatic Social i?m. in short, too, they don't quite know what; forgetting all tho while that the board was planted on the chin of man by the same Power that adorned the lion with his mane, and the peacock with his plumes. But, certainly, it is the artistic interest of us eldorlies, as far as our own personal appearance is concerned, that beards should at least be tolerated. Perfumes are better altogether discarded by well dreseed gontlemen who are past the age of dandihood. Extreme personal cleanliness is the most judicious cosmetic wc can use. Our money is more wisely laid out on Windsor soap and huckaback towels than on eau de Cologne and essence of milleflcurs False teeth are permissible or uot, ,according to their objcct and their animus An accidental deserter from an otherwise even and goodly set ipay have a substitute bought for him without reasonable blame. Teeth that really and truly help either to eat or to artioulate, are uo more than the natural tools to carry on the business of life. But if you cause your two or three rcmainiag stumps to be extraoted, in order to make ro^cn for a complete set of pearly ivories, both top and bottom, with patent spring hinges, which you want to display at the opera while you suiile at the girls in the boxes, or ogle the dan cers on the stage through your binocular glass, ?then, you are no better than a foolish old fel low , and do not forget the true proverb, '"There is no fool like an old fool/' I take it for granted that you have made your will. Many elderlies (who grow old and older every day. whether thoy know it and like it or not.) look upon will-making as an unpleasant or painful operation, of the same class as bleed ing or tooth-drawing. They will submit to it under the influence of chloroform, not other wise I assure you they are mistaken, having triod it myself and found it a very comfortable anodyne against several unca?y sensations; of course, to have that healing virtue, the last will and testament must be a tair and just one, with nothing set down in malice or caprice People will sometimes avenge themselves in their wills of affronts, little or great, real or fancied, that have been put on them People also ? flen re pent of the harsh resolutions they may hare mad*. Now. if personal reconciliation has taken place, or even if the offending party is only forgiven in the secret chamber of the com Elainant s heart, the record of estrangement in I act and white < u ht not to remain uncanceled a *ingle hour. Death may step in, without pre viously sending in his card, and may convert a free pardon into a vindictive sentence, thus biffling the dilatory testator, who thought and m?ant have made his peace with all men be fore deputing hence. Merciful change of mind may come too late *> be carried into execution?a strong reason for not fixing on parchment any unmerciful resolution in black and white. At the last deethbt-d at which I was present others had retired, and I was left alone with the sinking patient. Consciousness and intellect remained clear to the last; but, as strength ebbed away, tho eyes alone remtined eloquent, while the line continued to move in the attempt to speak, without the faculty of utteriug a sound. 1 guessed pretty nearly what the moribund per son was wishing to say. at least I felt sure of the tenor of it, because the previous conversa tion, while speech whs possible, had been an expression of thanks and blessings, with good advice and judicious observations. But, I thought, hud those unutterable last words been, instead of wbal they were, an unavailing ex pression of furgiveneas. a desire to restore s^iue young offender to his suspended rights, now forf-ited for ever?what an awful struggle must take p'.a -e in the miud of him who feeis himseli quitti^ earthly things under such condition*, toe i^ult J his own hasty harshness or bis taruy tenderness.? llonsthol l Words. Tukkb aid thrib Uses?Th? value of the forest tree is beginning to be appreciated, not only in a physical but eoon<*nieal point of view, and each new treatise serving to show the ne ces?;ty which exists for preserving and cultiva ting tree* 11 to be welcomed as a contribution V> ilia Public weal. An article on this subject in the Julv number of the North American Re view u cat 'ulate l to disseminate much whole s ine truth bearing on the subject. Alreadj the rapid deetruotoo of tbe forest bu been in a measure arrested, partly in consideration of the prospective wants of the railroad and ship builder. and the process of restoration has been commenced, by replanting many acres with young trees. After speaking of trees as an or nament, and the many classical memories which the^r sorvo to perpetuate, as the "rugged yew-trees'' whore liray lies buried?to "Mil ton's mulberry" and the "Avon willows''?the reviewer speaks oi trees as productive property, as follows: It can be demonstrated that the best use for the larger pari of the cleared land of New Eng land would be to plant forests upon it. There is?except in the rich gardens close around the oities?no land so profitable, no land which J>ay* so good an interest on its cost, as wood and. In some parte of Massachusetts, a man who owns a hundred acres of pasture is little better than a bankrupt, while he who owns a hundred acres of forest is independently rich. The first must pay taxos on what does not pay for its culture, while the second can cut off enough to meet the annual interest, yet have more at the end than at the beginning. Weonoeho&id an eccentric genius maintain that hi3 woodland, about fifty acres in all. though he had bought it and paid for it a good round sum some thirty years before, baa in reality never oost him a cent; "for," said he, " I have cut off wood enough to pay not only the original outlay, but to meet all the worth of the money at compound interest, and to cover all charges, and now I have more wood than I found there at the beginning " It was a rational logic enough. We are confident that, at the present prices of timber and fuel, the profits of wo<>d-lund to our New England farmers are at least three times as great hs the profits of the land which they cultivato with so much labor. The ex perimout of planting locusts on L?ng Island has proved that lands, before considered value less, may becomo the moat precious possession of their owners. Thousands of acres now lying waste might, with a very small outlay, be made to yield very groat returns. The length of time that uiust pass before the profit of these artificial forests can be tested undoubtedly de fers many from planting them. Very few men like to make an investment of which the re turns begin to come only after twenty or thirty years. But every man knows that whatever raises the value of his land ia as sure profit as that which actually puts cash into his pocket. There seems to be less promise in an acre of young locusts than |in an acre of thriving tur nips ; but in twenty years the value of all the annual turnip* will not begin to reach the value of the trees. The longer tne planter is willing to wait, the greater will be his ratio of gain. /Married is Spite or Themselves.?Old tfov. Sal tons tall, of Connecticut, who flourished /fome fifty years since, was a man of some hu mor, as well as perseverance in effecting the ends he desired. Among other anecdotes told of him by New London people, the place where he resided, is the following: Of the various sects which havo flourished for their day and then ceased to exist, was one one known as the Rogersites, so called from their founder?a John or Tom or some other Rogers?who settled not far from tho goodly town aforesaid. The distinguished tenet of the sect was the denial of the propriety and scripturality of the form of marringe. " It is not good for man to be alone." This they believed, and also that one wife only should " cleave to her husband," but then this should be a matter of agreement merely, and the couple should come together and live man and wife, dispensing with all forms of the marriage covenant. The old gov ernor used frequently to call upon Rogers and talk tho matter over with him, and endeavor to convince him of the impropriety of living with Sarah as he did. Rut neither John nor Sarah would g ve up the argument. It was a matter of conscience with them? they were very happy together as they were? of what use then could a more matter of form be ? Suppose thoy would thereby escape scan dal ; were they not bound " to take up tho cross," and live according to the rules they professed ? The governor's logic was powerless. He was in the neighborhood of John one day, and meeting with him, accepted an invitation to dine with him. The conversation, as usual, turned upon the old subject. "Now, John,"' says the governor, after a long pause, " why will you noi. marry Sarah ? Ilave you not taken her to be your wedded wife ?" " Yes, fertainly," replied John, " but my conscience will not permit mo to marry me, in the form of the world's people." " Very well. But you love her." Yes." " And cherish her, as bone of your bone, and flesh of your flesh ? " Yes, certainly I do." " And you, Sarah, love him. and obey him, and respoct him. and cherish him ? " Then,'" cried the Governor, rising. " in the name of the laws of God and of the Common wealth of Connecticut I pr.'Bounce you to be husband and wife." The ravings and rage of John and Sarah were of no avail?the knot was tied by the higher authority in the State. The Best Time to Take a Photograi'ii. At present no observation or experience has sufficed to determine the state of atmosphere in which the photographic spirits are most propi tious ; no rule or order seems to guide their pro ceedings You go out on a beautifully clear day. not a breath stirring, chemicals in order, and lights and shadows iu perfection ; but some thing in the air is absent, or present, or indo lent. or restless, and yoa return in the evening only to develop a set of blanks. The next day is cloudy and broexy, your chemicals are ne glected, yourself disheartened, hope is gone, and with it the needful care ; but here again something in the air is favorable, and in the si lence and darkness of your chambcr pictures are summoned from the vasty d?ep which at onco obliterate all thought of failure. Happy tho photographer who knows what is his enemy, or what is his friend ; but in either case it is too often ' something," he can't tell what; and all the ccrtainty that the best of experience attains is, that you are dealing with one of those subtle agencies which, though wrial-like, it will servo you bravely, will never be taught implicitly to obey. As rcspects the time of the day, however, ono law seems to be thoroughly established It has been observed by Daguerre, and subsequent photographers, that the sun is far more active, in a photographic sense, for the two hours be fore, than for the two hours after it has passed the meridian. As a general rule, too, however numerous the exceptions, the cloudy day is better than the sunny one. Contrary, indeed, to all preconceived ideas, experience proves that the brighter the sky that shines above tho ctmera. the more tardy the action within it. Italy and Malta do their work slower than i Pans. I ndor the brilliant light of a Mexican , sun, half an hour is required to produce effects ?? hich in England would occupy but amiuute. In the burning atmosphere of India, though photographically the year round, the process is comparatively slow and difficult to manage; while in the clear, beautiful, and, moreover, c >ol light of the higher Alps of Europe, it has been proved that the production of a picture rejuires many more minutes, even with the m ?at sensitive preparations, than in the murky i atmosphere of London.?-tjuartrriy licvitw. 1 _ TU* Shed.?a little urchin some two o th ee yems old, being a little distance fiom the | ujuse, w?* suddenly startled l>y u loud clap of ' t Kinder.
