Ting interview lasted some time it seemed to give us a better appetite for dinner. After Alonzo had soothed his beloved and dried her tears he discovered that his ruffles and Collar had suffered much from the embrace and gently hinted that he should like to put them off and new equip his neck and bosom. There is no country where the right direction of female influence is so necessary As in America because Here the popular breath Gities and impels As it were the barque of state. Our people must therefore be educated made not Learned in ancient lore merely or even instructed deeply in modern sciences but trained to the love How unfortunate cried she they of excellence and habituated to the have not yet Corne from the Washer woman so but Maria my dear you can Send for them they Are just gone answered she a pulling up the Heel of her shoe to hide a Hole in her stocking. Why Maria How Many times have i requested you to have a change of Linen on hand i know it said she plaintively grave of the misanthrope. 1 sat upon the Hermit s grave twas on a smiling Summers Day when All around the Gilt a my spot was brightened by the smiles of May. In lowliness i found the Litti found of Earth. And bitter weeds o or grew the place As if his heart had Given them birth and they from thence their nurture Drew in such rank luxury they grew. No Friendship to his grave had bout such rudely sculptured Monument As marked the peasant s place of rest for he the latest of his race had left no friends behind to Trace such frail memorial o or his breast. But near his head a sapling waved the honors of its slender form and in his loneliness had Bra de the autumn blast the Winter storm. Some Friendly hand the tribute gave to Mark the undistinguished grave that drooping o or that a it might repay a world s neglectful scorn and catching sorrow from the night. There weep a thousands tears at morn. It was an Emblem of himself a matchless Soh iary thing to which no circling season might an hour of greater gladness bring a churchyard desert was its doom its Parent soil a dark Hng tombs such was the solitary s Fate. So Joyless and so desolate for blasted soon As it was Given his was the life that knew no Hope then stranger by one pitying drop. Forgive forgive the misanthrope alas i am always making those uni map by whom i love j3on"t weep dear Laria began Alunzo. Well said we looking Atour watch and moving towards the door we have an appointment and purely cried Alonzo not before fro a the Boston Galaxy. The two wives. The blast howls like the scream of a wild Goose and the feathers will soon fall in the shape of Snow flakes said Alonzo to me one afternoon As we were standing by the Corner of a Street and dreaming about Sleigh Bells and warm Brown hearths. Ere you can reach your House continued he the storm will burst Forth. Come then and go Home with me. You have heard of my Maria a Paragon of women the Best of women Allons a you shall see How she will Renceh e her husband s Friend Alonzo had mentioned his wife to me before and although there was nothing particularly engaging in the description yet one that you often hear of you feel some curiosity to see.

Then it is the dish was broken to fragments and a truth which few will feel disposed control of the passions. The head t and the understanding must alike be cultivated and this can can never be elected without the co operation of women. It is in the department of teaching that women exert their greatest Power. Important As is their influence in the Nursery the task of education is but Corii fenced there. Females might be extensively employed in school Kee Jiing. Why should not a depart As we Heil towards the mansion which my Friend rented we met our Mutual Friend Daggett. He too had a wife and Straightway when he had passed did Alonzo fall to co Missera ting the Fafe of his Friend Daggett. A wife he has indeed said Alonzo but no More like mine than comparison aches with impotence at the thought Why sir she hath not the heart of a woman which is or ought to be All sensibility. My Friend Daggett is a fellow of mind of Genius Alonzo broke fort i in violent passion instruction More readily from those o and accidentally set his foot upon the i the other sex. Another and very grease when he came tumbling to the j important consideration is the effect floor. His wife screamed and Clung which the employment has had on to his neck demanding if he was Hurt those females engaged in it. Their and we forthwith took our departure own minds have been disciplined my hungry we passed swiftly along strengthen and when married Uliey the Street.

We saw a Bright and cheerful Light from the Pittsburg s. E. Visitor. The dying girl s lament. Farewell the word is spoken that bids us cach forget the link so fondly Woven. Can Only Tell we be met. I loved thee with a fondness the false heart cannot feel mid change mid gloom mid kindness thy heart can Tell full Well. To me thy Joy s Bright Token brought Bliss unknown before though now this heart is broken it must it will adore. The world May Call it weakness to kiss the hand that smites to banish from my presence yet live on memory s Light.

Deep deep has been he struggle since Hope s Bright Chain was rent since fancy s Rainbow Bubble in withering gloom was spent. But still my Griefs were hidden my sighs in silence hushed e n now the tear s unbidden the Cheek with hectic flush d. The tale should not be whispered but with this form be Iain in misery s Tomb sequestered i soon Hill pc is c to blame. J ltd / it unhappily he is United with a woman who cannot appreciate him and who is a Complete nobody. Enter and see what woman can be As Alonzo pronounced these words the door flew open. I glanced at the staircase and saw that a Broom had not passed Over it very lately. The Hall lamp was untrimmed and the brass on the doors had not seen Rotten Stone in Many Days. We entered the room. A Young lady sat by the window apparently counting her fingers for no other occupation seemed to engross her attention. Her dress was Good so far As the Quality of the cloth was concerned but there was a great Lack of neatness therein and even the vulgar idea of soap and water of traded itself As we looked upon the isthmus which joined her head to her shoulders. But we had not Long to make those remarks As she Rose on our Entrance and embraced Alonzo As if she had not seen him for a month. I was introduced and Maria gave us to understand that As the acquaintance and Friend of her incomparable Alonzo we were abundantly Welcome. Having stumbled Over Broom and band Box which Lay in elegant negligence in the Middle of the floor we found the Way to a chair thickly covered with dust. It was rather late in the afternoon and i was glad to hear Alonzo Tell Lier to place the dinner on the table. She replied certainly nothing gives me greater pleasure than to wait upon you you know it is my meat and my drink to obey your wishes Alonzo turned to us with a smile of Triumph As she went slowly from the room and said can i avoid adoring a woman who so readily executes All my orders 1 you heard what she said ? we bowed and waited. I became extremely hungry but in the course of an hour we heard the slow and heavy step of Maria approaching the room. Now though it we we shall break our fast. Truly the raw air gives one a tremendous appetite Maria entered but instead of bearing in her hands a smoking Platter or a table cloth her arms were loaded with books and pictures. We now expected that Alonzo would seriously chide but he again glanced at us most triumphantly and whispered see what it is to have an intellectual wife we were compelled to examine a dozen volumes and listen to the enlightened Maria. The Sun declined very near the naked tree on the Western Hill before the subject of dinner was again mentioned when Alonzo seemed to Start As if from a trance and rather pet Tashly request that dinner might be immediately brought in. The harsh tone of his voice brought tears into the Eves of Maria who threw her arms about his neck and declared she could not live if he were i offended with her. This was All very shining through the blinds of a neat dwelling on the opposite Side of the Street. Daggett s voice was the next moment heard. He stood on the Steps of Bis House and invited us to walk in. We did so. His Vav if received us without ceremony for she was busied about Lier household affairs. She asked us if we had supped and when we told her that we had not yet dried she moved out of the room As noiseless As a spirit and As Quick As lightning. We had scarcely time to Mark her neatly formed angles and pretty foot before a snowy cloth was spread upon the table. Five minutes sufficed to cover it with viands of a most delicious flavor and cooked in a style Seldom surpassed. When the husband spoke she was attention and before he had finished the thing was produced the half expressed command was executed. It is True that she did not Tell him that she loved him like an Angel or worship studies of their own children. Thus their influence on society has been continually Active in promoting the fashion of learning a that Peculiar Mode of thinking which even among our poorest class attaches infamy to ignorance and incites the dul Lek labourer to consider himself disgraced if his children cannot at least read and write. Here then is the profession to which i would direct the talents and energies of my own country women. The Field is wide enough for the display of All their Genius and there Are laurels sufficient to satisfy the most ambitious. Many distinguished female writers have likewise been distinguished As teachers of children and youth. Mrs. Hannah More was greatly indebted to her situation As an instruct ress Abr advertising its benefits the author of the work entitled the great Metropolis says that every one who has paid tie least attention to the philosophy of newspapers must have remarked that Are the last thin amp i me to paper so they Are the Botto leave it. There cannot be a stronger general proof the advantages of advertising. If a tradesman pays $20 for a sign Over his door which can be read by those Only who pass it what must a More descriptive sign be Worth in the Sham of an advertisement which married into Many hundreds a Imi Ilies in town and Conn try and read beyond All doubt by thousands of people advertisements in truth Are move Ash signify which meet the Eye of customers in All places and situations and that Man of business Wiio is deterred by the comparatively trifling charge of the Printer from availing himself of the advantages advertising affords cannot boast very largely of the minuteness or care with which he has traced causes and effects the cultivation and development of de him like a god but administered to her extraordinary talents. Mrs. Bar Lis comforts and anticipated his wishes i Bauld owed much of her literary sex with a celerity and propriety that nov j Wellence to the necessity she Felt of Els Seldom describe. We left the j assisting her husband in the education House comfortable in mind and body a of his pupils. Miss Edgeworth tho and resolved when we took a wife Toj not ostensibly a teacher was never choose one who loved us with her the less stimulated in her literary Ca hands and feet As Well As her heart. Fro77i the Smih. Literary messenger. A profession for the ladies. By mrs. Sarah j. Half. Men who really feel Good Many solicitous for the improvement and Elevation of the female sex doubt the expediency of bestow ing on Young ladies a regular scientific they doubt this because there is no profession in which the talents of women May be employed without injury to the female character to that retiring modesty which should Ever do Good by stealth and Blush to find Fame a Friend of ours is about to make application for a Patent for carrying news concerning important events in an instant of time by Means of electrical conductors which May be attached to railroads with Little expense the rate at which electric fluid travels is said to be some 280 millions of Miles in a second of time whew Good Bye Amos we leave you in the mud.

Indeed there is no method by which no person of reflection and Good a lady can with safety and credit to judgment who wishes to promote the herself so surely and speedily acquire happiness and respectability of women would seek to place her in the lecture room of the physician in the forum the desk or the Halls of legislation. The attempt to inspire our sex with ambition to appear like men is too absurd to Merit discussion. Would any lady consider herself competent to direct the management of a ship in a storm or a fire engine at a conflagration the storms of the political Ocean the of party spirit would As Little Accord with her moral delicacy of quot mind and feeling. Still she was not formed for a trifle on Earth. She has Powers which if not equal with those of men Are yet far too precious to be wasted in indolence or a Lowed to rest in ignorance of their duties. Women have a vast influence on society which nothing can prevent this influence will be beneficial or deleterious in proportion to the reasonable or enlightened manner in which it is exerted. To secure it on the Side of virtue and intelligence should be the aim of every person who wishes to promote individual and social improvement and a Siuess and that very necessary knowledge lor a popular writer the knowledge of the human heart As by becoming an instruct ress of the Young.
