Yet he ing from his Boom a Golden Bracelet All j j must be True for Here is certain proof and i now i will unfold i when the seven years War broke 1 17sg, my father who then resided his estate of Gross Renzow sent my brother and myself to pass some time Wilh a Noble rela Tive on the Island of Rugin. 1 was about fourteen years us alter Lemming i months in Thi old without receiving.

After journeying through the ravaged kingdom of Mecklenburg Schwerin i found the roads in such wretched order that Lear ing the Post chaise i mounted on horseback and attended by a servant took the direction which to my Fathera s estate. It is fifty nine years on this Day the 12th of August and yonder clock strike the exact hour when i on account of disordered state of the country and even if is the Case i must make the Best of and spend this night at least in my desolate Home with this thought i hastened through tie Long gallery and sought the Favourite was always styled my mothers what was my Surprise when on opening tie half closed door i saw Small fire burning a my father Mother and sat in a halt Circle around it their faces scarcely visible in1 the flickering Light.

School study Many books Are fond clothing and All fashionable doings but As to anything it is out of the question. I consider such women totally uneducated and to those who Are so unfortunate As to choose them As part ners through life they Are a trouble and o but 1 will not say anything hard about the girls they would do right if their parents by Soss Siats tha a it Winter. a cheerful fire sat Ati aged m four by tie in to the air of Over the room and exploding the citing , pawed the Frame of the old Man a the without fell Bis ear. Am Sharik purpose of rendering the last tokens of respect to remains of my lamented House hold but after a Long search i discovered nothing More than the Skeleton of a female Arm around which this Gold Bracelet was still clasped. I took the Bracelet from its place and buried the Bones in the family or Atory. Many years Bave elapsed since that to ried but about two months since As. I sat sleeping in this very chair a slight noise awakened me and on looking towards the , i recognized my and Sisters sitting exactly As when i Samv them on that night Many years previous.

A terrible tempest raged Thunder clap followed Thunder clap in rapid succession the lightning flashed incessantly and the rain poured in torrents. At length i arrived at the Gate of chateau entirely unattended As the servant had probably lost my track in the darkness. Echo anly gave reply As trapped loudly at the Iron door till springing from the Saddle i left my finding that i did not comply they formed into a Circle and wheeled slowly around my chair. I looked at each without Able to utter a sound. Or a my Gutber Asha Bent murmured my As she with a Mournful the muttered the eldest 12th of August at added the youngest and then again they circled slowly around my i chair while All solemnly haunted together we will meet once More we will meet Nee More and then instantly disappeared. Then did i truly feel that my Days were numbered and that i bad n ought to do but to make my peace with god und to recommend my family to your majesty s my dear you have really Eluted a strange excl aired the sympathizing Monarch but be assured it is Only offspring of the fever and delirium under which you Hare lately Laboured. Take Cour age repel Obeso passing fancies and try to be Cut Worful. I that there Are Many Good years in store for and As he spoke he look the o old Man s hand in his and pressed it with affectionate solicitude but struck w Ith its icy coldness he looked into his face and what was his horror when the glazed eyes opened for a meet his gaze and then closed again in the unbroken sleep of death. Just then the Midnight clock struck twelve and on the very Day and hour he had himself fora told Field marshal Blucher expired. More than you mention and my Opin Ion entirely deficient Fri True and Correct education. If you inquire in what Good elation does consist 1 it is not course of Souciy alone that a woman to count up her accomplishments and display them on every possible occasion but it is that train ing which improves the heart As Well As the mind and manners in a word that tends to perfection of character moral physical and intellectual. An education that does less than this is not Correct education it is oftener mis education. Of what Avail Are All the accomplishments of Earth if our sex do not with them also possess those gentle and affectionate that so promote the Happ Inasa of those with whom they Are connected. Do you think that it affords much pleasure to a husband that his wife can at Send Forth notes of witching Melody at others when no Granger is near to listen she can address him in the rough tones of anger and contempt no her music will never give happiness to his heart it will never cause it to vibrate with pleasure or listens not to the song of the charmer Charm she never so wisely. Better had it been for her to Mil her heart to tha soft notes of constant adv Tiomi than for her voice to be skilled Iii tin magic notes of song Sweet though they May be. Then it is one of the most important parts of education that woman learn to govern her temper to subdue every incorrect feeling and habit Ari l thus accomplish her heart at the Bame time she is improving her mind and let me say i passing that by cherishing Ami Able dispositions the countenance also is greatly the voice a Sott Low voice coming from a heart full of kindness is a Loving thing in woman. Let me say to Yon that if you have no Rule Over your spirit if you cannot school it to Bear patiently tha ills of life you Are indeed though you May have Waswil through the whole Circle of science. Cleo Patra the ill fated Queen of Egypt Early applied herself to the acquisition of knowledge she spoke nine or ten different poses set every accomplishment in perfection still Slie was far from being could not control her furious and Heads trod could no More her spirit than she Cottle still the Ocean s wild Are you not acquainted with some whom to consider educated who Are too useless to at tend to the every Day duties life would teach t Bera.
