ofthe Duke of Orleans nothing short of a
oil recognition ol her rights as such would

ended by pronouncing her madithe only pretext for
this calumny being a peculiar fancy which she had
for feeding some birds which flew to her windows

essary to be done. You sir I believe entertained
that opinion IJut we who know from ex perience
tho evils of Jong skirts even though they fall no
ower than the. ankle and the blessings of short
ones cannot zgxte with those who think thus. The
longer the dress the greater the quantity of under-
skirts necessary to give us a good figure ; the shor-
ter the dress the greater the number and weight
If we wear long dresses Ucmujl from necessity
wear a considerable amount of underclothing ; for
cen a lady with short drcsi and trowsers does not
appear so decidedly immodest and vulvar as she
does wiih a long one clinging close to her form and
whipping about her limbs. Uy shortening our
skirts two or three inches we might have them
wiping up filth from the streets but they ate just
as encumbcrsnmo and crippling as the longer ones ;
whereas by shortening them nearly to the knees
we not only cive freedom and elasticity to our limbs
but relieve ourselves of the undue weight hitherto
suspended from the waist.
We may look more g raerful in the dragging skirt
but vrefcel more graceful in the short one.
The only question in regard to tha new costumei
should be as to its utility ; and there are enough of
us who can speak from experience on that point.
Custom will make any dress look well ; and already
to my eye the American short dress and trousers

Like people we don't want.
The turnpike roads and linle creeks

Aiid you hear his voice like a thousand bricks
In the lowing ofthe herds.
He peeps into the teamster's heart
From his Huena Yisia'srim
And the cracking whips of many men
Can never fria'iten him.
He'll come to his cart in the weary night
When he's dreaming of his crafi;
And he'll float to his eye in the morning light
Like a man on a river rati.
He hears the sound ofthe roofer's adz

For he sighs in his car from the shavir'g.pile
As he hammers on the hoop.

The shoemaker bangs ahorc his bench
And ponders his shining awl.

And a epel! is on tho wall.

And spciks in every blow.

Ins of particular branches of industry. Be-I'
sides tho federal government has no need of
such a power to ansiverall its purposes. The
ledcral government was not made to he?p a.
man to his food ond clothing to enable him
... ...- r spin cotton to manufacture iron
or grniv sugar cane. For these purposes no
Union was needed; and for them no Union
would ever have been formed. The framtre
ot our rederal constitution know that a few1
poluciaiw at Washington were incompetent

country jlke th;3 Uy mean3 nf B. .
1 he federal constitution hints at nothing or
the kind. Such an object of federal power
docs not appear to have occurred to any mem-
er ofthe cimventiou. In no clause ofthe constitu-
ion is it suggested that Congress .shall have power
o enhance the price of -ascufaciBrcd articles to the .
consumers in ordei to benefit the producer. Had it
been proposed in the convention to grant this pow-
er to Congress it would have met with no favor.
They did nnt want a federal government for such a
purpose. No 31di arts 0f Congress are now need '
led. The people of this country want no nniffl
aids or rather hindrances of this sort. They can
pet competence aud- wealth without any means of
the kind. Suppose thafall the benefits claimed for

rensite fi.r the loss of confidence the sectional jeal-
ously thai followed and which? must CvCr fbhw

The recent.or.ocrhaps the present contest wnich
wears so serious an aspect and which is not now
adjured has sprung out of the eame.sort of assump-
tions of the fedenl government-the attempt to
control the butitulinn of slavery. It w not the bu-
siness of Congress to determine the domestic insti-
tutions of the States and yet tins power was assu-

lent excitement which threatens the disruption' of
the Union. It these usurpations of power that

only serves to confuse and embarrass the future ac-

The tendencies ofthe whig party are to a latitu-
dmous construction ofthe constitution in favor of
interfering with almost everv business Thev nev
er shew any scruples about tho exercise of power
when they have a desirable object in view.
These assumptions of power must cease. The
federal government must restrain its action or these

The Slate can get along in peace if Congress will
wisely act only upon interest common to all and
let alone subjects of a sectional sort. Keep wag-
gery out of congress and a great step will be made
for peace. It will give ossurance to tha States that
they vmII be let alone and left in the enjevmcnl of
heir rights. Peace from the agitations in Congiess
peace from the pretences of pow er ei nn i.J .u
federalists is what the States want and what is in-
dispensable to the peace and harmony cf the Union.

AH friends of the Union should repudiate

controversy Congress presumed to make con

thn contest had well nigh severed tho Union
in twain. Not only was the objection unau
thorized by the constitution in the admission
of a State into tiie Union it was useless aud
pernicious answered no purpose on the sub-
ject of slavery itself whilst it sowed the seed
of sectional jealousy that yet survives. Here
