Those who Are accustomed to enlightened views of female Beauty will know that there arc different kinds of personal Beauty amongst which that of form and colouring holds a very inferior rank. There is Beauty of expression for instance of sweetness of intellectual refinement of feeling of am nation of meekness of resignation and Many other kinds of Beauty which May All he Allied to the plainest features and yet May remain to give pleasure Long after the Blooming Cheek has faded and Silver Gray has mingled with the hair. And How far More powerful in their influence upon others Are a Orno of those kinds of Beauty i for after All Beauty depends More upon the movements of the face than upon the lorm of the features when at rest and thus a countenance habitually under the influence of amiable feelings requires a Beauty of the highest order from the frequency with which such feelings Are the originating Causo of the movements or expressions which stamp their character upon who has not waited Lor the first opening of the lips of a celebrated Belle to see whether her claims would be supported by a a the mind the music breathing from her face to and who has not occasionally turned away repelled by the utter Blank or worse than Blank which Tho simple movement of the to ouch in speaking or smiling has revealed i the language of poetry describes the loud laugh As indicative of the vulgar mind and certainly there a re expressions conveyed even through the medium of a smile which need not Lavner to inform us int refinement of feeling or Elevation of soul has Little Todo with the fair countenance on which they Are impressed. On the other inn tic there Are Plain women sometimes met with in society every movement of whose features is instinct with intelligence who from the Genuino cart Wrin smiles which Plav about the Mouth the sweetly modulated voice and the lighting up of in Eye Tomt looks As if it could a a comprehend the universe a became perfectly Beautiful to those who live with them and love them. Before such pretensions As these How soon does the Pink and White of a merely pretty face finish into nothing a to miss Isabella Emmi Tiwu. Islava. Published by bequest verbatim cd Lile Alum. Those lines dear miss 1 Pray peruse nor think Ine very bold i know Sweet girl you will excuse these lines when All is told. Thine eyes 1 vow when first we met. Awakened in this breast a feeling which still thrills it yet and not let it rest. The smile my dear which you bestow this heart can quickly move can Wake its Dee st trembling sigh and Wake its holiest love. And shall that Eye still beam on me ? and Speake to me of love i say will its faithful constant beam ? and shall that smile yet speak to me As an angles from above this echoing heart would leap to feel and answer yes yes tis love. Vav d. Young habit of a a loafing destroys More Young men in cities than nil other causes put together. But there is n class of girls called a a Young indies a who Are in n worse Way than these same voting Fellows. While their lathers honest Labouring men work Early and Lato to make a living and their mothers enslave themselves to keep them tidy and Cook their meals these interesting creatures Are tolling about terrified at nothing so much As the idea of earning the Salt that seasons their food. You cannot i Duro them to do a Little sewing by offering Thorn double pay lest they should be known to be a a working girls a nod Loso All chances for the fashionable world. Interesting creatures a doomed to helpless dependence through life or to be a dead weight to duped husbands. Messes. Editors a a my inst communication was occupied in defining my position i suppose i May once More be allowed a few words in reply to Friend Monitor. In his last lie replies in a More candid manner to me than i had anticipated of him and had to have confined himself from the first to a show of reason or argument instead of launching Forth such wholesale abuse upon All who make pretensions to religion he would have saved himself some of the severe notices which his communications have received. In regard to the Point which he wishes us to consider As settled by a popular opinion a and the experience of Eastern cities 1 must say that 1 am not ready to admit that prohibitory Law upon this traffic has Ever had a fair trial and i will Venturo to assert that not Many years will pass till we shall see Hosu sonic Eastern cities sustaining Laws far More string Cut and severe than have Ever yet been passed upon the traffic. Those failures can be accounted for on philosophic principles satisfactory to the candid observer. But As i have neither Timo disposition or ability to discuss this a mint in that a a Elu Bornac and masterly ? manner it deserves i will recommend Monitor to rend carefully a Skitch Els Appeal to the people a published in Tho family visitor. In concluding this Short series of Communia. Lions 1 must say shut i do not believe that i a see through a Glass clouded with religious bigotry or Temperance fanaticism a when i Sec that much of Tho language used by Monitor if not the language of n drum seller a thief or a hypocrite approximate very closely to that kind of Slang and mean insinuation of hypocrisy and wish to Rule which is so often heard among Tho freq enters of the dram shops and card tables. And 1 must say that Friend Monitor manifests an Abhorrence or dread of praying people n parallel to which is Only found in Tho Case of the old gentleman in the following Couplet a and satan trembles when he Sera Tho weakest Saint upon his respectfully via Dix. Far i fit or. Or. Editor a i see you have Token occasion to notice my communication sent to you a it w weeks since in pretty severe terms though 1 Hope in no ill humor for i assure you what 1 said in respect to the pieces i alluded to. Was with the purest motive and kindest feelings to you of i had heard Many others who Are in the habit of taking your paper say the same things and i was not willing to forsake n Friend without notifying him before hand in giving my reasons. Now other matters of a great Deal More importance than this reply demands my time and attention and i shall Only say in reply to your editorial of the 3d inst., that i am free to admit the Freedom of the press is one of the great blessings of our free institutions but when that press is used at any time in publishing any thing derogatory to All the Best principles of moral Reform and Good taste i consider 1 am at Liberty to refuse it a place in my Reading room or As unworthy of a place in my Library. Now of course we staud on equal ground in this respect. Well sir if i have been illiberal in first notifying you. 1 cannot conceive that your remarks towards me were less Liberal. However of 1 said before 1 have no wish to extend this controversy with you or. Editor As i can see nothing Good to be accomplished on either Side. 1 will Only say that i am often reminded by some menus notion of liberality of Tho irishman a views of Tho Liberty of this country. After a hard struggle to made out to reach Tho United states and soon ofter Landing he was for laying violent hands on every thing without leave or icons. This did not just suit the notions of some of the yank cd and he was therefore brought to a sudden halt and his Only plea before he Justice was that he Hud thought this to be a free country and of course he was at Liberty to take what he pleased. Now this is just the kind of views some men have especially those favourable to Selling liquors and of Many o her a Lingi too Ohi say they it is taking away the Liberty of Tho people to say a Man shall not Havo License to sell spirits to impoverish and ruin some hard Labouring yet weak
