A WOMAN'S ' SO " I never bear a tody protest against raatri- j monj, a* 70a are now doing,'' said Mrs Villera, 'that memory doe* not travel back to the Misses Sharpe. ' ' What about the Misses Sharpe'" asked her niece. "I hope they did not enter the holy state of matrimony after saying no positively?]' "A woman'* >10 means sometimes ye*.Lucy "Not in tny vobaculary, aunt; but pray give ; u? the veritable history of flje Misses Sharpe" ' Well, let me make myself comfortable first ?tive me that cushion lor my feet, throw my fbawl a little closer around me, and put another log on the fire; there?that will do. Now for the veritable hiatory of ths Misses Sharp* " ' When first I became acquainted with the Misses Sharpe they were not young; Lucinda, or, as her sisters called her, Lucindy, was not fat and fair, though she was forty. Providence ?called by her sister Provy?was several years her senior. Lucindy was certainly not as lovely as a poet's dream She was small and thin,and * u<> p?iu9 iu app??i sugm ciwj ncr pnafl , was to appear natural Her hair, black and ! i wiry, was her own She never powdered or paiuted; never squeezed orange juice into her ryes, like the Spanish women, to make them bright; never used henna, like the Turkish women; had oot even as much as heard of Varis masks for the complexion--Veatris's paste or tale She waj a true child of nature without sham or pretense. She wore her bonnets very close and her dresses very short, she wore no feathers?it was a sin; Luciuda Sharpe was one of those people who see sin in everything they look at; who cry out sin at every sight and sound that gladdens this beautiful earth, and fills the heart with silent ecstacy. She had even been heard to reprove the young pastor for laughing too loud 'Hush, my dear,' she would say. in an awful tone, 'don't laugh too loud, it is a sin.' When in her presence you felt as if you were the greatest sinner in all creation; that you had twice as much original *in and twice as much acquired as any one else. My dear,' she would say, in freezing tones. !I nw you during prayers look up several times from your book at Mr Harvey Now. Mr. Jlarvey is a very handsome young clergyman; but the young ladies of the church commit a very great sin whm they look at him during prayers I never look from my book I never *-ee any one in church.' " Now, your eyes may have wandered to Mr Harvev's face during th? nmvor nn? k?. - d r" "J J vv ture you were anxious to look at him, but because jou were perhaps listless. or you could not give up jour whole soul to deration as you should have done. You may hare been mourning over this deadness, down in the depth* of your high-backed pew, shut out from mortal eye. \ ou may have been bewailingyoureoldliess and striving to recall your wandering thoughts, when, struck by the fervor of the minister's tones, you raised your eyes and l<>oked at him, praying silently in your heart that you might have tne power as well as the wish to give yourself wholly up to the spirit of prayer as did Rev. Mr. Harvey. " It was a sin with this ' sinless child of earth' to act and think contrary to her ideas ?>f right and wrong. It vas a sin to read any o'her books than the Bible. Prayer Book, and the Whole Duty of Man She was a great churehwoman. whose creed was no salvation out of the church catholic, which is Protestant Episcopal. She had never been to a tneelt/ighon te tn her life, but had always sat under the preachings of those who could prove their descent from the Apostles Sidney Smith himself was not nor* intolerant of Dissenters than was Miss Lucinda Sharpe. ' Providence Sharpe eschewed being altogether a child of nature. She consented to wear a very brown braid, suggestive of perpetual youth, and adorned her person rather u >re lavishly than her sister She was rather inildrr in her mode of speech than Lucinda, but, like her, equally despised the lords of creation. I well remember the evening that ?irace, the servant girl, had an admirer.. I was taking a social cup of tea with the Misses rnarpe. si meir snug little mansion at the corner of the street We were gathered around the tea-table; the hospitable board was well spread: muffius and tea smoked before us; the preserves were of their own making; the beef of their own drying A fire burnt in genial plow in the well-poiished grate, before which laj two fat. well conditioned tabbies, enjoying a charming siesta. " 'Sow, this is what I call comfort, Miss Providence,' I said, as I looked around and ?bout it the charming prospect. ' 'Yes. my dear,' .she answered, blandly, and the greatest comfort of all is, there is no man here to mar our eojoyment.' ' Men!' exclaimed Lucinda, raising up the plat* of muffins *r.ddenly, and putting them down again, 'they are' " Wretches" put in Miss Providence. - Wr*t*he?' Provy, don't mince rour language. they are demons?arch-ficnds" ' ?>, not all,' I interrupted, feeling solicitor about my brothers, uncle* and cousins. " -Yes. all' My dear, you don't know them as we do. Ha' ha' men" and Lucinda gave a series of defiant, convulsive shrieks. " Men" echoe 1 Provy, 'ha' ha!' And she picked up a knife, and waved it about in the air like a bloody cut-threat thirsting for bis victim ' -Why. my dear, they are utterly destitute of religion, to begin with.' * A ?et of atheists'' responded Provy. ' Deists" continued Lucinda. ' Turks without their turbans" ejaculated Frovidenee Then their morals' O. my dear' my dear!' and Mi- Lu-inda raised her hands in a uiute espre^ion of horror 'Juit look at some of the Popee Look at Henry tha Eighth. Francis the Second. Louis the Fourteenth Then, in modern times, look at Byron?the butcher over the way?the baker round the corner Why, there is no end t* the disgraceful catalogue. God may have made man in his own image, but now he ha* fallen so low th*t he is not at' " To wait on my dear Tabby Gray,' interrupted Mis- Provy -Take another dish of tea, Barbara, lore*' ' I ban led up my dish, that looked very like a cup. and Mi?< Luoinda remarked Mr Harvey is very partial to tea ' " O, is he?' I asked. You have him to tea, then, though he ia that biped called man. I wish you had aaked him to-night.' ' Miss Locinda frowned, and said, drawing herself up 'As oar pastor, he Ukea diah of tea with us, by special invitation, twiee a year; but we oonfine hia entirely to spiritual conversation. We do not suffer him to roam into worldly pastures where there ia no food for the aoul. Before parting, we always request him to read the penitential na*lm? *u?11 We do not invite him mors frequently,' observed Miss ProvT, 'for it might have the effect of flattering his vanity Men. even tlie least worst of them, are ao vain "All is vanity'' about them, as the wis* king says. Ha' ha' men' men!' echoed Miss Lavinda; and these two high priestenes of Diana's tem pie kept up their'ha ' ha! and their men ' men!' until thej scared the two fat tabbies out of their slumbers on the warm rug, and they began to stretch their legs and open their aleepy * eyea in a manner quite wonderful. 'At this juncture the door opened, and Grace, the servant girl, said, in tremulous tones? ' 'Please, ma'am, may I go to the circus tonight 7' " 'The circus, Grace? Good heavens' what sin" ejaculated Miss Lucinda. 'fchu? the door, girl, andeomein.' Grace obeyed. 'What t ,,?t the circus into your foolish head ?' asked ' Miss Lucinda. ' Nothing, ma'am,' replied Grace, bashful ly. twi ttmg the eorners of her apron ' 'Put down your apron, girl, and answer roe properly Nothing is no answer at all; nothing means nothing Hare you forgotteu your catechUm, girl r 'No, ma'am, Mid Grac?. " 'What are you by nature, Grace ?' U,A child of wrath, ma'am.' " -Deserving punishment ?" " 'Yea, ma am.' '?'What did I promise when I stood your sponsor at the baptismal font1" " That I should renounce the devil and all his works,' responded Grace, demurely. " 'Yes, that was my promise. Now, the oircu* is the devil's presence-chamber; decked off to make it alluring: it is a very wicked, a shockingly sinful place. Do you know that, Grace'' " 'George Morris asked me to go, ma'am,' replied Grace. 'He never told me it was a sin !' "'George Morris!?sjood heavens!' ejaculated both ladies. 'Who is George Morris? Speak out, girl?no hesitating.' " 'He's the butcher's boy. ma'am.' 44 -Hie butcher's boy! said Miw Lueinda, ironically. 'Truly aristocratic, I do think. Really, girl, I have no patience with you. Where on earth did you make so low an acquantance V " He brings the meat to the door, ma'am,' said poor Grace, turning scarlet. " 4 And what if he does bring the meat to the door' - that is the very reason you should not have spoken to him. Better never eat meat than have such a dreadful affair under our very roof.' I have promised to marry him. ma'am,' murmured Grace, gaining courage 4 Marry him!' exclaimed both ladies. 'My dear Lueinda,' eaid Miss Provy, clutching her sister'* arm. 4how awful" '"Miserable depravity!" moanod out Miss Lueinda. clutching Grace s arm. and shaking her violently. 'You awful bad girl, what do you mean by saying such a thing'?you wicked child?anly seventeen, too" 4* 'Speak gently to her, Lueinda,' said Miss Provy,' in an altered tone 'We must win back the erring, gently ' 'Come here, Grace.' she said, milaly. Miss Providence was evidently bent on trying 'moral suasion' on the youthful lore of the butcher boy. " Do you not know that it is very wicked to wish to get married' Are you not aware, too, [we have told you so repeatedly,) that men are very bad people' This young butcher inherits a bad nature from his father, who inherited it from A/.v father, and so en ' 44 I am really ashamed of you, Grace," screamed out Lueinda. " Now," said Provy. again resortinz to suaaion.' -see how happy Lucinda and I in We never got married?we abhor the very thought See how much respected we are' ? gee how independent we are' 44 ' Free, free as air,' ejeeulated Miss Lucinda, flourishing about her arms. 44' Yes," continued Mis* Pruvy, 'we do as we please?we go where we please?we are indebted to po man for any of our pleasures or privileges. Why, girl, you are a silly young thing t<j desire matrimony. Now yeu belong to yourself, when you marry you are the slave of a man. Come this will not do. Don't let me hear another word about this wicked butcher boy.' " 4 He's pot wicked, ma am,: cobbed out poor Grace rt 4 But he is wicked' - said Miss Lucinda; 'he can't help himself. It is his very nature, against which he neither prays nor struggles; and you are a very sinful girl to try and screen him in his wickedness. Let me hear no more about him. Go to the kitchen immediately. 1 and read, on your knees, the psalter through Tell ilertha to lock carefully the door and the gate. ' Grace dried her tears, and ?> = ;??? a look of st?rn defiance. Outside the door, in the entry, stood tbe offending butcher boy Grace quietly walked into the street with the youthful swain, went and got married to him, "then made her appearance, as a bride, at the circus. ' The next morning, when the ladies were at breakfast, she opened the door and walked in I have called ma'am, she smilingly said, 'for my things I am a bride. I got married last night.1 " -Married!' screamed the ladies. Lucinda, always prompt to act, arose and clutched her severely by the arm 'Walk!' she said, in tones of awful majesty, closing the door upon tbe delinquent. The butcher's bride vanished as speedily as she had appeared.and Miss Lucinda, sitting down, pale with horror, gasped out: What an awful thing to happen in our house.' ' 'Oh! men, men" groaned I'rovj "One morning?a fatal morning?a gentleman called at tbe house of the Misses Sharpe and was ushered in. Lucinda positively refused to go down to any man ao Providence smoothed her braid, looked at herself in tbe glass, and tripped obligingly down to receive the gentleman He was the con of their father's old friend, Jacob Clarke He was just then in the city, and bad ventured to call on the ladies for the sake of auld langsyne He remembered them well as little girls, be would not say how long ago?the least said about that the better; but he would say Providence was very pretty. He remembered well her rosy cheeks, and soft brown hair. Ah' was he not addressing Providence now7 'He knew her by that same soft brown hair.' ;-Providence blushed She never waa pretty. ri- ? - - - a u.yxii mi nuaoand of your charminr sister | We were united in the til ken bonds of matrimony a few momenta ago; we bar* re turned to ask j')U to give aa an affectionate welcome ' " 'Nerer'' Mid the indignant Luoinda; 'you hare sinned beyond all hope of pardon. Leave my presence immediately!' "'Hewaaao lonely.' murmured the bride; 'I married bim to comfort him.' " 'She did. indeed, bleeaed woman!' ejacn1. tod Jacob Clarke. " '0, go away, both of yon,' sobbed oat Loainda ' Better be dead than aubjected to these constant shocks.' 41 A few weeka after her marriage, Providence wrote to bar ?ieter, imploring forgive u? ?"uj h nmierer But he thought her pretty Her image had gone with hiui through life?a divine memory Ah' these early lover, what hold they take on the mind' He had married, and Hannah had proved a very good wife, but be had had the misfortune to bury her Now be was lonely? very lonely, indeed. Man was not born to be alone his spirit pine* for the *weet companionship of woman. "His conversation waa quite affecting, and so worked upon the tender feeling* of Providence that she cordially invited him to stay to tea Lucinda was disgusted when her sister ran up stairs and told her what she had done. 44 'You are as thoughtless as a child. Provy,' she replied, angrily 'As to his loneliness and his grief. I don t believe a word of it;, men always talk that way when they wish to marry again. Even if they have their house as full as it will hold of mothers, grandmothers, aunts and sister*, they walk amidst a multiplicity of females, all highly interesting and agreeable people, and cry 44lonelv " o tl???? ? ceitful race, and if this man haa come hare to hunt for a wife, he is greatly mistaken and Miu Lucinda dashed oat of the room. " 'The imperial votrcaa paaaed on, In maiden meditation fancy free ' 'But even in that home of the Teatals, there was a wife for Mr. Jaoob Clarke; and he oame and came again, until the fair Providenoe consented to endow him with her hand, and, what was of infinitely more conaequence to him, her goods Bat she dared not breathe the rash rirotnise to Laeinda; in her exasperated state t would throw her into fits. Accordingly, ene sunny morning, when the skies were blue and the sun was golden, in walks Providence Clarke, born Snarpe, and aays in triumphant tones : Lucindy, this is my husband V What!' acreamed Lucinda; 'Prory, you are certainly mad.' " 'Dear ^ater Lucinda,' aaid Jacob Clarke, smilingly.^ProTidence never exhibited more -riking signs of sanity than In marrying me < Yea, I have the supreme happiness of calling ness. '0,' she said, 'Lncinda, I am so happy. Jacob i* one of tb? sweetest and dearest men that ever lived; he is a perfect pearl; matrimony is the most charming sta ol was ever in. How oould we denounce tnese noble beings as demons? My erring sister, be convinced; they are only a little lower than the angels. Men ! men!' " 'She certainly is crazy,' said Luoinda, throwing down tho letter, 'Men, indeed' I don't care to see how she finishes that sentence now.' " Miss Lucinda was wretched after the departure of her sister: and the Pr**hvtAri?n I clergyman, who lived next door, wu kind enough to step in of an evening, to sit with her and offer consolation In a short time Lucinda was heard to pronounce him a man of wonderful grace, deeply interesting and charmingly consolatory. Old prejudices vanished as speedily as 'The tear down childhood'* cheek that flows.' A bishop was superfluous1? apootolio descent could not be proved, in short. 41 Stop.'stop, aunt. I implore you. I swal lowed that story of Miss Provy; but. indeed. I cannot open my mouth wide enough to take in Lucinda. too." ' My dear, if I were telling you a fiction, gladly would I stop here; but this is a veritable history. I regret, for consistency's sake, to say that Lucinda actually married the clergyman Now, when you protest so positively against matrimony, ju.-t think of this story of a woman's no We, none of us, can tell what we may be induced to do in this world of change Like you. like the Mioses Sharpe.
