Jemima m. Mason late is now on our table. The Success of this work is to be attributed not to its support of the principles of the Ancion regime in politics or to its steadfast sincere Anc Able defence of Union of Church and state of the divine right of Kings of the hereditary privileges of nobility and aristocracy or to its strenuous opposition to the development of Politi Cal Power in the representative and equalizing doctrines of the Republican of National its opposition to the Extension of human and privileges thus far from successfully carried out against its own prediction would have Long since entombed it in the vault of the caplets but that the consummate literary and classical Talent and research which it continues to display in every number has gained a reputation for it in the world of letters which it it our plea sure freely to Accord to it.

Look on me Aggy a look me and shake your head and say to yourself. Honor Healy is not Long for this world the twisting White Garland that becomes a Virgin will soon be planted on her this Aggy to yourself and then turn round to me and say iike4that false world i am about to Honor Healy you Are doing indeed Honor i la say no such thing for i do think that you seem very poorly but with the help of god we will get you Over Over with the help of god too of Aggy i deserve no help from god though i do from of this is worse than being at the deaths door. Re collect Honor you had an honest father and Mother who though they died when you were Young yet left this world with the priest s Blessing upon them. Of Honor sure you never did any thing to disgrace them or bring upon you a curse from Havn t done it yet but look at the persons thus introduced to the Reader were Honor Healy and Aggy Brien. The first a love Yyoung coun try girl a Voth Light Flaxen a Pale delicate skin and a Check which burned with that dazzling red spot which Marks out the person who bears if an Early victim to the grave. Her wasted and Young As she was her withered form was enveloped in Wool in garments. She raised herself to a sitting posture on he Settle bed upon which she had been lying and handed to her Friend Aggy a comely and still Youthful Matron a narrow piece of paper and As she did so she said look at exclaimed Aggy unrolling he paper and looking at the White Ponder contained in it this Why what can this have to do with the state of your Why this is sugar Healy i know a i ought to know it is Poi son Honor if you Ever Hope for Sal vation if you would not be walked up on by devils for Ever i charge you on the apparel peril of your soul Tell me what do you mean to do with it s a Short Story and i la Tell it to you. I need t say to you who know it How i love and a girded my old playmate my school fellow and bed fellow Jenny Macknin. I dated on her and i would do still but that she deceived me. Of How she unused me. From my youngest Days Frt fas fond of James Maguire and he Wasyl am Shire equally fond of me he might be so but for that cruel that heard hearted and that perjured women. Aggy give me a drink of whey or i cannot continue my Story. It is As if it was Only yesterday i remember walking in that dark Anda close Boreen that winds around the High read to Kilkenny thai narrow Little Boreen you know it Well where the Hedges Neady close up the pathway for travellers and where Hawthorn blossoms scatter scents about As plentifully As May morning brings Clew upon the cups of the remember when All was sweetness and calmness and Sunset when the mild Ness of the evening and the red col our of the Sun going Down was like a to my mind the deep flush and the qui etness of a baby sleeping. I remember i shall never forget that had asked me to marry him and to be sure 1 said i would have him. My heart was full of Joy thought that every thing was do ing its Best to please me i thought that the Trees were More Green the pathway straighter the air More mild and that is i smiled every thing looked delighted with me. That evening Aggy and when my heart was so full i was walking with Jersey Macken and i told her what happened that Day and i said i was to be married and in the foolishness of my mind i tainted her that though she was a great Deal prettier yet i would be a Bride before her. It was a foolish taunt but the lord knows i paid heavily and severely and sorrowfully for the same no Sensi Cal saying. Jenny frowned at me and of i think that i see in the frown that curled on her White Forhead i think there was the darkness and cold Ness of the Black coffin and the Clayey grave., she said to me too with a smile that went to my heart it Xmas so Desper aet and cruel May be after All Honor Healy you would be wishing to be in my it was too True for god help me it was too True. From that evening out she sat herself Down to please James Maguire and May be it was because she was handsomer than i am for she looks like an Angel though she has the disposition of a Devil and May be it was because i was a Little jealous of her that James Maguire quarrelled with me and sure enough she was married to him and sure enough i had every Peason to wish to be in her place but i hate yes i hate i detest and curse them both she for injuring me he be cause he deceived me. But i know that i am know that the grave Yard is my doom and now Aggy As you ask me what i m going to do with the paper i la Tell take right Good care As she was married before me so Thall she be buried before she s to be Here to Day and that powder Shell get in a Tay cup. That s my Story for you Aggy i Hope Jenny Mack in will be Here shortly for i feel that i am going mighty god Between us and All harm what Are you thinking of doing is it going before him who made you with hands red with the blood of one of his Crea Tures. To be sure Jenny Macken injured you but do you want her to be the Means of injuring you More and More she has Only destroyed your happiness Here but would you want her to be the Means of ruining you not Only Here but hereafter. Of Honor Honor if you kill a Chi Istian by Poison never think of won t and you can t expect it. Honor you never saw As i did any one dying by Poison. My eld est daughter died that Way and of if you Savoy the creature when the Poison began 8 work on her she the innocent took it unknown to me and when i first saw her after it there was every feature in her face twisted into Twenty forms her Cheeks were As Blue As indigo her body was cradled curled up like a Ball and then her her cries her agonies and her groans she died. Honor you can have no of Only Comfort and was t it sad Comfort for a Mother it wag to see my Only child do ing before my i was Only Able to cry Honor when j saw its eyes its Darling arse full a Freet innocent Black eyes turned up to heaven and they looked As if Smil ing upon the happiness that it was to enjoy for Ever and for Everi i then Honor and i still cry j think of it but what would i do what could i do if i was dying As you Are and after suffering such punishment Here saw the person i Nad poisoned gasping out her last breath and going before him who made her and my self with All her sins upon hold me shrieked the unfortunate Honor he perception of my than he fact that we made Money by every suspension and grew Richer by every failure. At first the big pawed As we always Call them a Little wild when we announced in the news papers that we had suspended for the safety of. For your pure straight for Ward ignorance cannot comprehend the use of keeping specie under lock and key from1 he people in Ore or to present its going out o f the country. The blockheads had the Hardihood to Tell us it might just As Well go abroad As stay at Home doing nothing. But we soon shut their Mouths with a dose of to lyrical Economy and a newspaper article or two which made them scratch their Heads at no Small rate and so confounded their understanding that an old Farmer who had been the loudest in his com plaints was to confess that there was some truth in the theory though for his part he did t understand a word of it. In a Little time however they be Gan to get used to it. Every repetition of the grand Experiment of sus pending whenever it was inconvenient to diminished the sensation it occasioned until at this verily believe ii our Bank should suspend every other Day they would submit to it with the patience of martyrs. At this moment were it not for the noise Macle by certain desiring politicians it is my firm belief Wei could violate All the Lavva of the land and All the old obsolete obligations of Justice and integrity wit i the most perfect but these a meddling incendiaries with gov. Porter at their Heads will be put Ting in their Dar acid making War on the we Are now once More in a state of suspension which the rascally Loco focus Call bankruptcy. The mass of the people in our neighbourhood and especially All those who owe Moise than they can pay so far from in dudgeon Are delighted with our setting the salutary example1 of not paying our debts and taking such Good care to keep the specie in the country. We in tend to resume the payment of specie whenever the emperor of China Dis his persecution of the opium smugglers. Now gentlemen i Trust i shall hear no More of your absurd on the Bank of Hamburg. Your prefer ence of that ridiculous inst ution does you no credit since it is placing Money before wit any Foo with Money can found a Bank of Hamburg but he must be something of Al cute Fel Low who can establish a Bank of Honni bus yours j oba3iah t prom the sunday morning news. Authentic occur Ance of the revolution. And Days in company with Samuel Cassedy Esq. Of Jersey City he rela Ted to us the following anecdote connected with Gen. As every record of our revolution is eagerly treasured and especially respecting treason and this May be do definitely relied on we requested or. Cassedy to give it to us in such a shape As would present intrinsic evidence that it could be relied would be Best effected by his permitting the rela Tion to emanate fr6m , with his name attached. To this publicity it is but Justice to him to remark that he strongly objected but was persuaded by our Earnest entreaties. To the editor of the sunday mor Ning news dear compliance with your request i commit to paper some details Given to me a few Yea re ago by the late gov. Ogden of new Jersey in re Garc to an offer made by Gen. Washington to sir Henry to give up Andre if the americans could Cap Ture Arnold. Sitwell recollect tearing my father say it was generally believed in the i american army that such an offer had been made. On mentioning this to governor Ogden he immediately said he had reason to believe that the offer if any there made through him.

Washington handed me a letter for sir Henry with directions that before i left the can for new York i should Call and see the Marquis de la Fayette. The letter of Gen. Washington was prob ably on some subject not at All connected with the real object of my Jour Ney. Went to the Marquis quarters and be to me you must set off at such a time of Day As will of necessity make it near night when you get to Pawles the commanding officer will no doubt invite you to stay All night and you must insist on delivering that letter into the hands of the commanding officer there. You must Tell him privately that if we can Cap Ture Arnold Andre will be reprieved and hat you have High authority for saying i left the Camp with my Twenty five horses reached the foot of the Ber Gen will about Sundown. There was a Fence drawn across the causeway arid we haunted. I stated i had a let Ter for sir Henry Clinton form Gen. Washington and that my orders were to deliver it into the hands of the com manding officer at Pawles Hook and to no one else. We were immediately admitted our horses taken care of and in even ing after delivering the letter i was in vied to a supper with lie officers there. I was seated on the High. Of the commanding officer and some time e before i had an Opportunity of delivering the message from the mar quis i said to him i am authorized to say that if the americans can Cap Arnold Jendre will be reprieved. He seemed immediately answered that must be immediately attended i will go over1 and it must appear As if i have on Lei gone out for a moment on some Ordinary matter of business. He was gone about two hours and returned and took his. Seat. As soon As he had an Opportunity to speak to me privately he Henry John save a deserter never was Given r this statement is As i Jan Roi eat it Iron it made to me by governor from High to ten years ago. I committed this to writing at your particular re test As you thought the circumstances ought not to be lost and that would appear in an authentic shape. While gov.
