A Sign of the Timea-A friend who Is
particularly fond of noticing the signs of
the limes, and who considers that ! there is
no better indication of prosperity than an
increase of marriages, ex"pre$s the opin
ion that he has !isroreied this gratifying
mark of lmprovetnenl. in morals and socie
ty within the last few weeks.- iMost sin
cerely o we rejoice if his - notion be cor
rect. We have long thought that something
like an understanding should exiat; in this
country especially 10 relation to the term of
couruhip. We consider it morally wrong
on th part of a suitor, to linger on year
after year in his addresses , to any bright
particular alar,'' and thus to deprive her, in
souse measure, of the general society and
attentions of others, without some certain
prospect as to the termination of the period
of courtship. ! !
The truth is, a time for alt thine; and
even the attachment of a young and impas
sioned being may have its-bounds, especial
ly if fcope be delayed year after iyear, and
the heart iijus sickened, and the cheek rob
bed of its blootii by disappointment. Alar
fiaga is an instil ution recognised and ' on
joined both by the laws 0 God and of man
yn'd'lf there be any among our readers who.
havii; courted a year or two, lack the cour
age or thi m?ans to venture before the Hy
meneal altar, tup should extbit some de
greexC magnariimity and- self-denial, and,
ackno4ldjrh)g their true prositiori, allow
others an oppTBttunir pf.piessn forward
and posseesing the prize'hiph they have
neither the ability nor thecourjgrtft obtain.

and creditably illustrated than in the quiet
and ready a q'iiesceniewTth whjrh Ih re

and prejudices of millions of free men were
