At the present day one note of fashion is undoubtedly to be "fast;" and it is especially required of every married couple that they shall unite a profound indifference for each other, with a corresponding fondness for the husband or wife, as the ease may be, of some other person; "So far has this gone," says the cultured and fastidious Epoch, "that a man of fashion in New'York or Boston would think twice before' taking a walk with his wife in broad daylight, and certain really affectionate husbands are under the piwnful necessity of carrying on a kind of clandestine intimacy with their own wives. All this comes very hard on some people who are by nature incapable of what is called" a 'flirtation,' but who are bound to be 'in the swim,'cost what it may. Every one is familiar with that frequent but always pitiable sight of a middle-aged man, who, if he consulted his inclinations, would be sitting at homo in slippers, surrounded by his family, trying to give an appearance of wickedness, in the corner of a ball-room, to some perfectly colorless tete-a-tete! And perhaps this spectacle is lightened by the fact that his wife, a good little woman, whoso conversational powers find their appropriate field in tho_ nursery, is at tho same time making an equally ineffectual attempt to pose as a married flirt! Other notes of fashion are sonr.etimos' thought to be the possession of a fur- lined overcoat or a pair of bob-tail roans, but these are external and accidental circumstances, such' as might confer distinction in a savage tribe, but surely not in this enlightened community. It would perhaps be more true to say that a frank and noisy behavior is a present note of fashion, and • this conduct is especially required of women, who are encouraged to discuss in public, with a loud voice, the insolence of their cooks and the diseases of their children."
