Tc-morroV, gentle and fairj reader, is St- Val-entiae's day, a period of some moment, to all young lovers both in Old Eugland and New England, whatever it may be here. St. yalentine, as you probably : know, was a presbyter of the 'church, who was beheaded in the time of Valerianus, the empeYor, and by a most singular coincidsnce th day on which he sufTeredmartyrdom 1500 years ago, has been for centuries commemorated bv the effusions of earthly love and fancy. Not one of the Saints' days in our calendar has been so honored by the muses. , Little deemed the tyrant when he gave the order which. doomed the j persecuted bishop to the block, that he was bestowing a name upon a day to be held .in pleasant luemory a day in which the spirit of martyrdom has little place, utiles?, indeed, the muse may jie fated - to act the part of the deceased saint, which, we arc incliued to believe, is pretty oJieu the cjise. There is, however, no occurrence in the legendary life of StJ Valeuline, in the slightest degree connected with the .customs which were once pretty generally observed on this day ; though it is said, that ho was a man of admirable part?, and so famous - for his love and charitv, that the custom ol choosing Valentines upon his festival took its rise from thence. .' It is a very general custom, of doubtful origin, but of great antiquity, for young people to draw lots on the eve ol St. Valcntinejs day : the names of a select number of one se are, by an equal number of the other, put into some vessel, out of which each person draws one, which is called .their Valentine, and is looked upon as a eood omen of their being inun and wife ufterwards. This custom of choosing Valentines was a sport practised in the houses; of the gentry of England, us early ns die year 1476; and it is still obseived in the Aortliern .bounties of that couirtrv, where ulso the first woman seen bv a man, .or man seeu by u woman, on St. Valentine's day, is marked for their Valentine for the cusu- iuz vcar. i The rural tradition, thnt on this dav, evcrv bird chooses its mate, is u I Unfed to by ChuticcrJ ami numerous Otuer writers, fciakspeure, in lus Midsummer's Night's Dream, t--ays : Market Salutations. EXetj body, who Us m the habit of visiting the markets, has noticed-that the bOtcher and other venders of. eatables are in the habit bf conferring names for the nonce upon their customers. A mend of sixty, who has been a purchaser for more than thirty years, tells us that the names or sobriquets, bv which he has been thus addressed have served as "quite a mirror to nature," advising hiin of the marks of time upon his aspect. First, wheu' he appeared -directly after marriage at the shambles, some pains were" taken (the city was smaller then) to get his name, aud he was addressed respectfully as Mr. L. Familiarity soon removed this deference, and he was hailed as "Young Man," in token not unpleasant that he carried his marriage bravely.- iSoine over familiars would call him "Charles" being married themselves, and willing to signify that marriage did uol remove all pretensions to juvenility. Others saluted him as "Cousin," "Friend," "Doctor," "Neighbor," and "My Gqod Fellow." - . When to induct the juvenile mind into the mysteries of marketing aud to teach the young idea how to .shoot, he took his first born to market wth him, tha titles changed to " lios-," "Sir," "Mister, " "Cuntaiu." "Colonel," and "Mate." When his wife w as not on his arm, it was "My. Good G'entleman," "Dear Sir," "Captain," "Colonel," "Squire," Judge," and Ueueral." As the grav huirs begau to be obvious among the whiskers, it was "Uucle," "GoodMan," "lios-sv," "Major," "Matty," " Master,", "liubby," and "Goodman." And when the market-men felt well assured he had passed his grand climacteric they saluted him "Father," ""Poppy," "Pop,"' atid "My Good Sir." As he became old, and no mistake", it was "Old Man," Grandfather," "Daddy!," "Dad," "Old Gentleman," "1 say!" "You Sir!' -"Good Friend," aud "Seventy -six." The salr.tations and greetings in the market place, thus pleasantly set forth by the New York Sun, are not w ithout some resemblance to those in! Philadelphia. We sav nothing of our own name, which, we. suspect, sometimes gets a twisting, when .the market people recollect us as ; T , North- Eastern '11 ouudaty.
