As it is, it must be confessed that the arrival of Miss Prissy in a family was much like the setting up of a domestic show-case, through which you could look into all the families in the neighborhood, and see the never-ending drama of life,--births, marriages, deaths,--joy of new-made mothers, whose babes weighed just eight pounds and three-quarters, and had hair that would part with a comb,--and tears of Rachels who wept for their children, and would not be comforted because they were not.

To awake and find life has been one grand error,--to awake and know that youth and early manhood are gone, and that you have been cheated of your honest and legitimate enjoyments,--to feel that Pleasure might have wooed you gracefully when young, and when it would become you to sacrifice at her shrine,--gods and fiends!

We have the best conditions of moral culture in a company large enough for the exacting disposition of the solitary child to be balanced by the claims made by others on the common stock of enjoyment,--there being a reasonable oversight of older persons, wide-awake to anticipate, prevent, and adjust the rival pretensions which must always arise where there are finite beings with infinite desires, while Reason, whose proper object is God, is yet undeveloped.
