I never Ltd Ard of any True affection but Twain it with care that like the Caterpillar cats the leaves of the Springs sweetest Book the Rose. Middleton. It is a common practice with those who have outlived the susceptibility of Early feeling or have been brought up in the Gay a heartlessness of dissipated life to laugh at All love stories and to treat to tales of romantic passion As Mere fictions of novelists and poets. My observations o i human nature Hare induced me to think otherwise. They have convinced me that however the surface of the character May be chilled and Frozen by the cares of the world or cultivated into Mere smiles by the arts of society still there Are dormant fires lurking in the Depths of the coldest bosom which when once Enkin led become impetuous and Are sometimes Deso lating in their effects. Indeed i am a True believer in the Blind deity and go to the full extent of his doctrines. Shall 1 confess it a i believe in broken hearts and the possibility of dying of disappointed love 1 do not however consider it a malady cited fatal to my own sex but 1 firmly believe that it Withers Down Many a Lovely woman into an Early grave. Man is the creature of interest and ambition. Fits nature leads him Forth into Lite struggle Ami Bustle of the world. Love is but the embellishment of his Early life or a song piped in the intervals of the acts. He seeks for Fame for Fortune for space in the worlds thought and Dominion Over his fellow men. List a woman a whole life is a history of the affections. Tote heart is her world it is there iter ambition strives for Empire it is tit Ere iter avarice seeks for hidden treasures. She sends Forth iter sympathies on adventure she embarks her who soul in the traffic of affection and if shipwrecked her Case is hopeless for it is a Bank opted of the heat t. To a Man the disappointment of love May occasion some bitter a tight it wounds some feelings of tenderness t blasts some prospects of Felicity tul lie is an Active being lie May dissipate his thoughts in the whirl of varied occupation or May plunge into the tide of pleasure or if tote scene of disappointment be to full of a amp in Ful associations he can shift his abode at Wili and taking As it Weie till wings of the morning can a Fly to the uttermost parts of tile Earth and be at but woman s is comparatively a fixed a secluded and a meditative Lile. She is More the companion of her own thou Glits and feelings and if they Are turned to ministers of sorrow where shall she look for Consolation her lot is to be wooed an1 won and if unhappy in iter love her heart is like some fortress that has been captured and sacked and abandoned anal Lei t desolate. How Many Bright eyes grow dim How Many soft checks grow Pale How Many Lovely forms fad away into the Tomb Anu none can Tell tote cause that blighted their loveliness As the Dove will clasp its wings to its Side and cover and conceal the Arrow that is preying on its vitals so is it the nature of woman to hide from the world the pangs of wounded affection. A the love of a delicate female is always i shy and silent. Even when fortunate site a scarcely breathes it to herself but when a otherwise she buries it in the recesses of i her bosom and there lets it cower and i Brood among the ruins of her peace. With her the desire of her heart has failed tote great Charm of existence is at an end. She neglects All the cheerful exercises which Gladden tire spirits quicken the pulses and Send the tide of Lile in healthful currents through the veins. Her rest is broken the Sweet refreshment of sleep is poisoned by melancholy dreams Quot dry sorrow drinks her blood until iter enfeebled Frame sinks under the slightest external injury. Look Lor iter after a Little while and you find Friendship weeping Over her untimely grave and wondering that one who but lately glowed with a1 the radiance of health and Beauty should so speedily be Brough t Down to a a darkness and the Vou will be told of some wintry chill some casual indisposition that Laid her lows but no one knows the mental malady that previously sapped her strength and made her to easy a prey to the spoiler. She is like some tree the Pride and Beauty of tote Grove Graceful in its form Bright in its foliage but with the worm preying at its heart. We find it suddenly withering when it should be must fresh and luxuriant. Me see it drooping its branches to Tho Earth and shedding Leaf by Leaf until wasted and perished away it Falls even in the stillness of the Forest and As we Muse Over tote Beautiful ruin we strip in vain to recollect the blast or Thunderbolt that could have smitten it with decay. Most As it they hid been exhaled to heaven and have repeatedly fancied that 1 could Trace their deaths a through the various declensions of consumption cold debility languor melancholy until i reached the first symptom of disappointed love. But an instance of the kind was lately told to me the circumstances Are Well known in the county where they happened and 1 shall but give them in the manner in which they were related. Every one must recollect the tragical Story of Young Ethe Irish Patriot it was too touching to be soon forgotten. During the troubles in Ireland he was tried condemned and executed on a charge of treason. His Fate made a deep impression on Public sympathy. He was so Young so intelligent so generous so braves so every thing that we Are Apt to like in a Young Man. His conduct in i have seen Many instances of women i completely won the hear of a Brave Oili running to waste and self neglect and i cer w to paid his addresses to her and disappearing gradually irom the Earth Al thought that one so True to the dead could not but prove affectionate to the living. She declined his alien tons for her thoughts were irrecoverable engrossed by the memory of her former Over. He however persisted in lot suit. He solicited not her tenderer a but her esteem. He was assisted by her conviction of Iii Worth and her sense of her own de Stitum and dependent situation Lor she was existing on the kindness of friends. In a word he at length succeeded in gaining her hand la Tough with the solemn Assurance that her heart was unalterably another a. He took her with him to Sicily hoping that a change of scene might Wear out the remembrance of Early Wos. She was an amiable and exemplary wife and made an Effort to be a Happy one but nothing could cure the silent and devouring melancholy that had entered into her very soul. She wasted away in a slow but hopeless decline and at length sunk into the grave the victim of n broken heart. It was on her that Moore the Distin. Gushed Irish poet composed the following lines she is far from the land where her Yonng hero sleeps and lovers Ai found her Are sighing but coldly she turns trom their gaze and weeps for her heart in his grave is lying. She sings the wild song of her dear native Plains every note which lie loved awaking a Little they think who Delight in iter strains How the heart of the minstrel is breaking he had lived for his love for his country he died Limey were All that to life had entwined him nor soon shall the tears of his country be dried nor Long will his love stay behind him of make her a grave where the sunbeams lest when they Promise a glorious Morrow Shine Over her sleep like a smile from the West front iter own sieved Island of sorrow tier trial too was so lofty and intrepid the Noble indignation with which lie repelled the charge of treason against his country tote eloquent vindication of his name and his pathetic Appeal to posterity in the hopeless hour of condemnation a All these entered deeply into every generous bosom and even Iii enemies lamented the Stern policy that dictated Iii execution. But there was one heart whose anguish it would be impossible to describe. In happier Days and fairer fortunes lie had won he Beautiful and interesting girl the daughter Ofa late celebrated Irish barrister. She loved him with the disinterested Fervour of a woman a first Aud Early love. When every worldly Maxim arrayed Itsell against him when blasted in Fortune. And disgrace and danger darkened around his name she loved him the More ardently for his very sufferings. If then Iii Fate could awaken the sympathy even of his foes what must have been the agony of iter whose whole soul was occupied with his image let those Tell who have had the portals of the Tomb suddenly closed Between them and the being they most loved on Earth who have sat at its threshold As one shut out in a cold and lonely world from whence All that was most Lovely and Loving had departed. But then the horrors of such n grave social a benefits of the extreme profligacy i Providence and misery which Are so prevalent among a so frightful so dishonoured 1 there was i the Labouring classes in incur countries nothing for memory to dwell on that could Are chiefly to be ascribed to the want of soothe the Pang of separation none of those tender though melancholy circumstances that endear the parting scene nothing to melt sorrow into those blessed tears sent like the Dews of heaven to revive the heart in the parting hour of anguish. To Render her widowed situation More desolate she had incurred her fathers displeasure by her unfortunate attachment and was an exile from the paternal roof. But could the sympathies and kind offices of friends have reached a spirit so Salt Mckeil and driven in by horror for the Irish Are a people of Quick and generous sensibilities. The most delicate and cherished attentions were paid her by families of wealth and distinction. She was led into society and they tried by All kinds of occupation and amusement to dissipate her grief and wean her front the tragical Story of her loves but it was Aii in vain. There Are some strokes of calamity that scythe and scorch the soul a that penetrate to the vital scat of happiness and blast it Neber again to put Forth Bud or Blossom. She never objected to frequent the haunts of pleasure but she was As much alone there As in the Depths of Solitude. She walked about in Astl reverie unconscious of the world around iter. She married with her an inward to that mocked at All the Blandishments of Friendship and a a heeded not the song of the charmer Charm lie never so the person who told me her Story had seen her St a masquerade. There can be no exhibition of Fargon wretchedness Inore striking and painful than to meet it in such a scene. To find it wandering like a spectre lonely and Joyless where nil around is Gay to sec it dressed out in the trappings of mirth and looking so wan and to begone As if had tried in vain to cheat the poor heart into a momentary forgetfulness of sorrow. After strolling through the splendid aim Giddy crowd with an air of utter abstraction she sat herself Down on the Steps of an orchestra and looking about Tor some time with a vacant air that showed her insensibility to the Garish scene she be Gan with the capriciousness of a sickly heart to warble a Little plaintive air. Site had an exquisite voice but on this occasion it was so simple so touching it breathed Forth such a soul of wretchedness a that site Drew a crowd mute and silent around her and melted every one into tears. The Story of one so True Anil tender could not but excite great interest in a country remarkable for enthusiasm. It education. In proof of this we need Only cast our eyes on the condition of the Irish compared with that of the peasantry in Scotland. Among the former you behold nothing hut Beggary wretchedness Aud sloth in Scotland on the contrary under tote disadvantages of a worse climate and More unproductive soil a degree of decency and Comfort the fruit of sobriety and Industry is conspicuous Antong the lower classes. And to what is this disparity in their situation to be ascribed except to the influence of education in Ireland very few of the poor car read and they grow up in Tola ignorance of what it most befits a rational creature to understand while in Scotland the establishment of free schools in every Parish an essential Branch of the Eccl Esias tical Constitution of the country brings the Means of instruction within the reach of the poorest who arc thus inured to decency Industry and order.
