Morton was a widow?a young. pretty, rich widow?when Dr. Charles titrahau made ber acquaintance. She was a poor but very handsome woman when Squire Morton married her. and at his death, two year* after, ahe being the sole heir, put on her widow'a weed? and pocketed her deceased husband's gold at the same time. Madame Rum^r said that poor old Morton I never enjoyed a .single hour after he married her : but how sbould Madame Rumor know ? Of one thing, howerer, I can give my readers reliable information. Mra. Morton had not been a widow twelve months ere she received with seeming pleasure very decidad attentions iroin vr. oiranan. Do you inquire who Dr. Strahan wag ' Well, be studied medicine, and bad the title of M D. conferred upon him, whioh he took great plea*are in attaching to the end of hia name with a grand flourish. Bat it is averted that he nevar had a half dozen patienta in as many years. He was a young man of prepossessing appearance. a ready talker apon any subject, and was (in fact first rate company, lie played the flute and sang?waa a good dancer, and an excellent partner at whist; besides, he had some literary reputation. He wrote poetry and two oolumn sketches for the Weekly Lereler, and last, though by no means least, he dressed in good taste aovl in the bight of fashion. How ne did it no one knew, but then it was no one s kwilM. But I must b? allowed to contradict one rumor which gained considerable prevalency, to the effect that he supported himself by his literary labors; an ordinary newspaper scribbler could hardly afford ^trahan's wardrobe. Oid Squire Morton had been dead but little over a year, when Dr. Strahan, despite all that gosaipers could say, married the widow and her fortune. The fact was, he wanted a risk wife. As to her, she was anxious to leave he weeds and go into society again; and she Could devise no readier way to accomplish theae purposes than by marrying. When any one ipoke to the doctor of her being a shrew. v. i 1 i a! i 1 i i ur iuficij remsritcu mm ne snouu tase great pleasure in taming * shrew. For three months they lived happily together for it was in the bight of the season, and between Cape May, Newport. Saratoga and the White Mountain-, they were alone with each other scarce three hoars oat of the twenty-four; consequently it was impossible for them to disagree But the season was soon over and they returned to their quiet home?the place of all others to study a wife or husband; for there is no unnatural excitement, no fashionable Mrs. A. to nutdress, no profligate Mr. B. to eutdo in (eqaandering money; no one to see. to please, bat the "Other half " After a season of long-continued gayety there necessarily follows one of extreme dull' new; and when one is dull one is easily displeased. Now Mr. and Mrs. Strahan were both of them remarkable dull, and as a matter of course both preferred being pleased to attempting to please; and of course both were greatly displeased It was their third day at home, upon which their first quarrel commenced. How it beiran neither could clearly tell. It is only known that fctrahan expressed a desire to dine upon roast beef, upon which Mrs. S. sail that she abominated beef, and stated her preference to be roast turkey and oyster sauce; Strahan considered turkey a.* child's food?ho d have beef or nothing; she'd have tnrkey. And thus commenced the war of Strahans One ordered the butcher not to have fowl; the other gave strict instructions not to have beef brought into the house; between them they were both likely to starve if they remained at home; so the doctor went to the village tavern and dined on beef, while Mrs. 6. visited some of her friends and partook of turkey. After dinner Dr. S gave a wine supper in the room which he designated by the name of "study," a sort of variety store, in which he kept his library, writing desk and spittoon liere. also, were two glass cases, one of which contained a giant's skeleton, hung on wires; in the other was an Egyptian mummy. The walls were hung with curiosities of all descrip u jus, among mem cane irom a tree which grew orer Washington's grave, a ?nuff-h?x trout wood of the Charter Oak, a chip from the United States frigate Constitution; mineral*, ahells and fossils of all kinds, specimen ears of corn, enormous sized fruit and vegetables, cases of dried insects and jars of pickled reptiles. Stuffed birds were perched about the apartment, and voluptuous French lithographs aud portraits of distinguished personages were ^ hang promiscuously on the walls; a long read\ ing table, arm-chairs, a prescription case, a mmimoth bell-metal pestle and mortar, completed the furniture of the - study.'' During the same evening, Mr. S had a whist party in the parlor. M ine held her votaries in bondage longer than cards, and Mrs S. had dismissed her party and retired hours before her liege lord came to his chamber; and when he did come, he found the door locked, himself without and his wife within In vain he called to her, she could not and would not hear; and he was compelled to find a bed elsewhere, which he did. * S - - L! 1 * ?> uuucriug i? uiiii.ten, " i u tame Her yet." And he laid all night forming a plan to bring her to submission. In the morning he asked her to walk into his study; and there, seated in an arm-ehair, they renewed their fierce worded quarrel?during which Mrs. S. called her husband a hearties*, brainless fellow, who married her for money. To which the doctor replied by railing her a low. vulgar woman, who was ->nly glad to marry a professional gentleman and author to enable her to enter better society. After which she toyed with her fan, and finally pulled the bell-cord, and ordered the servant who answered it to bring her carriage to the door. " Where are you going!" demanded the doctor " To ride." replied the amiable Mrs. 6. " I will g<) wiih you, please " 41 But I do not please " ' Then I choose to go." ' Very well, then, you will go alone; for you cannot go with me." 4. V ...... ? ? -? x i/u t anuui gu uuicu i go wiin you. ? We will see "Well, we will see,*1 and the gentleman L walked out of the room. looked the door, put * the kej into his pocket, and left the house. Mrs. 3. did not sit down and burst into a flood of tears, but wailed patiently for the servant to return whom she had ??nt for the carriage When he arrived, she told him, through the keyhole, to return the hor*es to tbe stable, and place a ladder up against the study window The ladder was placed according to directions, and a turkey, with oysters and paatry. was brought up to ber. The ladder was then removed, and ererTthin* nr?n?r?H f.>- ?>>? ~ ?r O ? f?* ?vi *UW IB" appearance of ber husband i About the middle of the afternoon, the docw tor returned home, stepped softly through the hall toward the study door, and peeped through the keyhole. expecting to seek a striking picture of humility and contrition. Judge of his surprise, then, when he saw Mrs S sitting before hU long reading-table, on her right hi* bell-metal mortar, in which was fire, and a grate over it, on which she was roasting his mammoth specimens of apples, ?*weet potatoes, and her turkey. Next her stood hi.s water-bath, in which she was cooking oysters, and she occasionally stirred them with his silver spatula, on the table stood one of the bottles of wine which had been left from a previous night's rerelrv. which tn* iui> want , of a champagne opener, had deprived of its neck with a wedgewood pestle. and using a fwur-ounce graduate for a wine-glass, she bad eat up ohampagne baskets for tirewoo-1 with an Indian tomahawk On the left hand stood the doctor's writing desk, which she bad broke a ; , open and Mattered on the desk were tender m, iires of his earlier flames, manuscript pages of tales and sketches, unpublished odes, poems, and unpaid tailors' bills, all in a huge pile, * while the ladj sat reading, first a sweet loveletter, then an ode on Napoleon, and so on, throwing them, page after page, into the fire. Thus, the husband s brainwork and wooden curiosities were made to cook her dinner. The doctor looked silently on as long as he could; then taking the key from his pocket, he unlocked the door, and?it was bolted upon the iufide " Mrs. S.'' he shouted. "Well, sir!" " Onen the door" " I'm busy now, and can't be disturbed !" " Open the door, or I'll burst it in." " Do as you please, sir, but your mummy and riant skeleton are placed against the door, so be careful and not break them. The doctor was foiled For a few moments he stood and thought what course it was best to mirsue Hui1(1ad1v rmoil?alin? th* 1 ?aa hel)Mt*ne<] down stairs and through the hall, oat door*, leaving the door unlocked and the key in it. His foots'.eos had scarce died upon the stairway, before hia wife had removed both cases from the door, drawn the bolt and stood in the entry. It was but the work of a moment to throw the remaining letters, poems and manuscripts in the fire, remove the wine and eatables, look the door upon the outside and place the key in her pocket. Meanwhile the doctor was raising the ladder to the window, and by the time he had placed it and ascended half its length, his wife and a favorite man servant were watching him from a lower window The doctor pushed up the window and jumped in: the servant jumped out of the lower window and nnllf-rl down in* larfHur Tn ?n instant Strahsn saw that his bird bad flown, and he rushed back to the window just as the ladder reached the ground. " Put that ladder back here again," roared the doctor from the upper window. "Let it stay where it is," cried the wife from the lower window. " Put it up here instantly, or I'll discharge you," bellowed the upper window. Let it alone, and I'll double your wages," chimed in the lower window " Do a* I tell you, blockhead," yelled the doctor, with rage. "Come in the house, John," said Mrs. S.. very coolly.

All night long the doctor was kept a prisoner. Just before she retired his wife put her lips to the keyhele and whispered : What success in taming a shrew, doctor?" The next morning sho came to the door and called? " Doctor !*' 44 Madamo," replied the gentleman. " Should j.ju like some breakfast ?" ' I'm not particular." 44 There is cold turkey left if you would like it." The doctor deigned no reply, and the lady again left him alone. !>uring the afternoon (he again tapped at his door, and called? 44 Doctor!'5 41 Well, my dear," very humbly. 44 Would you like some dinner !" 441 should." 44 Will cold turkey do for you?" 44 Anything, my dear." 44 If I will let you out will you promise never to lock me up again ?" 44 I will." 44 And never object to my eating turkey again?" 44 Never." 41 And attempt to tame a shrew again ?" "Never" " Then?you?may?coine?out." And the lady unlocked and threw open the door. To this day Dr. 8. has not attempted to dictate to his wife in what she shall eat, or when she sball ride, and has never been heard to a _ ?* ooasi again 01 "laming a stirew." The Four <*e?rgea. The last Cornhill Magazine has the first of Thackeray's excellent lectures on " The Four Georges of England." The following extract therefrom relates to the life and times of George I: Delightful as London city was, King George I liked to be out of it an much as ever he could; and when there passed all of his time with his Germans It was with them as with Ulucher, I one hundred years afterwards, when the bold old reiter looked down from St. Paul's and sighed out. "Was for Plunder?" The German women plundered; the German socretagies plundered; the German cooks and intendants plundered; even Mustaphaand Mahomet, the German negroes, had a share of the booty Take what yon can get. wad the old monarch's maxim. He was not a lofty monarch, certainly; he was not a patron of the fine arts; but he was not a hypocrite, he was not revengeful, he was not extravagant. Though a despot in Hanover, he was a moderate ruler in England. His aim was to leave it to itself as much as possible, and to live oat of it as much as he could. His heart was in Hanover. When taken ill on his last journey, as he was passing through Holland, he thrust his livid head out of tne coach window, and gasped out, "Osnaburg. Osnaburg!" He was more than fifty years of age when he came amongst us; we took him because we wanted him, because he served our turn; we laughed at his uncouth German way, and sneered at him. He took our loyalty for what it was worth; laid hands on what money he could; kept us assuredly from Popery and wooden ahoes. I, for one, would have been on his side in those days. Cynical and selfish as he was, he was better than a king out of St. Uermains. with the French king s orders in his pocket, and a swarm of Jesuits in his train. The Fates are supposed to interest thornselves about royal personages; and so this one had omens and prophecies specially rejrardimr him. lie was said to be much disturbed at a Erophecy that he should die very soon after is wife, and sure enough pallid death, having seized upon the luckless princess in her castle of Ahlden. presently pounced upon H M King George I in his traveling chariot, on the Hanover road. What postilion can outride that pale horseman! It is said, George promised one of his left-handed widows to come to her after death if leave were granted to him to revisit the glimpses of the moon; and soon after his demise, a great raven actually flying or hooping in at the Duohess of Kerdar s window At i wicKennam sue cnose to imagine the king's spirit inhabited these plumes and took special care of her sable visitor. Affecting metempsychosis?funereal royal bird ! How pathetic is the idea of the Duohess weening over it! When this chaste addition to our English aristocracy died, all her jewels, her plate, her plunder, weut over to her relations in Hanover. I wonder whether her heirs took the bird, and whether it is still flapping its wings over Herrenhausen ? The days are over in England of that strange religion of king-worship, when priests flattered princes in the Temple of God; when servility was held to be ennobling duty; when beauty and youth tried eagerly for royal favor; and woman's shame was held to be no dishonor. Mended morals and mended manners in courts and people, are among the priceless consequences of the freedom which George I came to reseuo and secure He kept his compact with his English subjects; and, if he escaped n< more than other men and monarcbs from the vices of his age, at least we may thank him for preserving and transmitting the liberties of ours. la our free air, royal and bumble homes have alike been purified; and truth, the birthright of high and low among us. which quite fearlessly judges our greatest personages ci??i onlv >iut>k nf tK?m >/, ? ?i- -t ' -| ?vn tu wuiuo ui rOTprui and regard There are itaim in the portrait of the first George, and trait* in it which none of us need admire; but among the nobler feat^ area art juiuce, oourage, moderation?aad these we may recognise ere we tarn the picture to the wall. The Proper Manser for Womem to Dress.?"All The Year Round" has the fol lowing :?"As you look from your windows in Paris, observe the first fiftr women who naM! fort} have noaes depressed in the middle, a mall quantity of dark hair, and a swarthy complexion, but, then, what a toilet! Not only suitable for the seaaon. but the age and complexion of the wearer. How neat the feet and hands ! How well the clothes are put on, and, more than all, how well they suit each other! Before English women oan dress perJectly. they must have the taste of the French, especially in color. One reason why we see colors ill-arranged in England is. that the different articles are purchased each for its own imagined virtues, and without any thought of what ia to be worn with it. Wumen, while hopping, buy what pleases the eye on the o >unter,forgetting what they have got at home.

To be magnifi cently dressed costs money: but, to be dres.??d with taste, knowledge and refinement. Ne*er buy ?tj article unless it is suitable to your ige, habits, style, and to the rest of your wardrtbe. i v.ii.: * * iiuiumg is more Yuigar man to wear costly dresses with a common delaine, or cheap lices with expensive brocades. What colors, we i may be asked, go best together?* Green with ? violet; cold with dark crimson or lilac; pile blue with scarlet; pink with black or while; and gray with scarlet or pink. A cold cobr I generally reauirei a warm tint to give life to it. Gray ana pale blue, for instance, do nit combine well, both being cold colors. White and black are safe wear, bat the latter is nrt favorable to dark complexions. Pink is, for some skins, the most becoming; not, however, if there is mi^ch color in the cheeks and lips, and if there be even a suspicion of red in either hair or complexion. Peach color is, perhaps, one of the most elegant colors worn. Maize is very becoming. pHrticularly to persons with dark hair and eyes. Gut whatever the eolOH J or materials of the entire drew, the details are I all in all; the luce round the bosom* and sleeves, ; the flowers?in fact, all that furnishes the dress. The ornaments in the head must harmonize with the dress. If trimmed with black lace, some of the same should be worn in the head, aud the flowors that are worn in the head should docorate the dress.
