I have often had occasion to re
mark the fortitude with which women
sustain the most overwhelming re
verses, of fortune. Those disasters
which break down the spirit of a man,
and prot-tratc him in the dust, seem to
call forth all the energies of the soft
er sex, and give such intrepidity and
Elevation to their character, that at
times it approaches to sublimity.
.Xotbiog can le more touching than
to behold a soft and tender female,
w ho had been all weakness and de
pendence, and alive to every tf i vial
roughness, while treading the pros
perous path of life, suddenly riMiig in
mental force to be the comforter and
support of her husband under misfor
tune, and abiding, with unshrinking
firmness, the bittt re?t b!a.-t of adver
sity. As the vine, which has hmg twin
ed its graceful foliage about the oak,
and been lifted by it into sunshine,
wiil, when the hardy plant is rifted
by the thunderbolt, cling round it
wiib its caressing tendrils, und bind
up its shattered boughs ; so it is beau
tifully ordered Providence, that
woman, who is the mere dependent
and orn anient of man in his happier
hours, should be his stay and solace
when smitten with sudden calamity ;
winding herself into the rugged re
cesses of his nature, tenderly sup
porting the drooping head, and bind
ing up the broken heart. J
I was once congratulating a friend,
who had around him a blooming fam
ily knit together in the strongest af
fection. "I can wish you no letter
lot," said he with enthusiasm, "than
to nave a wife and children. Jt you
are prosperous, there they are to share
your prosperity ; if otherw ise, there
they are to comfort you." And, in
deed, I have oJstTveu that a married
man falling lo misfortune is more
apt to retrieve his situation in the
world than a single one ; partly be
cause be is more f-timciateci to exer
tion by the necessities of the help
less and beloved beings who depend
upon him for subsistence ; but chiefly
because his spirits are soothed and re
lieved by domestic endearments, and
his self-respect kept alive by Ending,
that though all abroad is darkness
and humiliation, yet there is still a
little world of love at home, of which
he is the monarch. Whereas a single
man is apt to run to waste and self
neglect ; to fancy himself lonely and
abandoned, and bis heart to fall to
ruin like some deserted mansion, for
want of an inhabitant.
These observations call to mind a
little domestic story, cf which I was
once a witness. Xly intimate friend,
Leslie, had married a beautiful and
accomplished girl, who had been
brought up in the midst of fashiona
ble life. She had it is true, no for
tune, but that of my friend was am
ple ; and be delighted in the anticipa
tion of indulging her in every ele
gant pursuit, administering to those
delicate tastes and fancies that spread
a kind of witchery about the sex.
"Her life," said he, 'Vhall be like a
The very difference in their charac
ters produced an harmonious combi
nation : be was of a romantic serious
cast; she was all life and gladness.
I have often noticed the mute rapture
with which he would gaze upon her
iu company, of which her sprightly
powers made ber tha delight; and
how, ia tha Midst af applaoaa, her
ESTABLISHED, 18 9
i eye would still turn tj bim, as if
i there alon he s3Qsrht favor and nc -
i cfptanec. kaninjp on his arm,
i her fdendor form contrasted finely
j with his tall manly person. The
i fond confinding air with which hhe
looked op to him seemed to cull forth
a flur-h of triumphant pride and cher
irhiny tenderness, as if he doted tin
his lovely burden for iL? very help
Ies5ties.. Never did a conple w-t f'.r-
ward on the flowery path of early
and well-suited marriage with a fairer
prospect of felicity.
It was the misfortune of my friend,
however, to have eniharkcd his pro
perty iu Idrire speculations ; and he
had not been married many months,
when, by a succession of sudden dis-at-ters,
it was swept away from him,
and he found hinr-elf reduced almost
to jienury. For a time he kept his
situation to himwlf, and went about
with a h&egard countenance, and a
breaking heart. His life was but a
protracted agony ; and what rendered
it more insupportable was the neces
sity of keeping up a smile in the
presence of his wife ; for he could not
bring himself to overwhelm her with
the news. She saw, however with
lhe quick eyes of affection, that all
was not well with bini. She marked
his altered looks and stifled sighs, and !
was not to be deceived by his si k!y
and vapid attempts at cheerfulness.
She ticked ail her sprightly powers!
and tender blandishments to win him
back to happiness ; but she on'y drove
the arrow deejier into his p jui. The
more he saw cause to love her, the
more torturing was the tliotight that
he was sMK.n to make her wretched,
A little whde, thought he,
stnile will vanish from that
the song will die away, and those;
tyes will be quenched with sorrow";
and the happy heart, which now ed few articles, and those of the sim
l.eats lichtiv in that bosom, will be : nlest kind. All the soh ndid furni-

heard him through I inquired, "Does
vour wiie know all this;" At the
question he burst into an agony of j leaned over that instrument, and lis
tears. "ForUod's saka!"' cried he. tene I u the nu ltiag tones of her
"if you have any pity on me, don't voice. I couid not but smile at this
mention mv w lie ; u is me inouarnt oi

must know it sooner "or later : you
cannot keep it long froinher.and theiu-

I your&elf; for the accents of those we
love so'ten the narshesttidines. 15e-
sides, you are depriving yourself ofiof the da v, and, as he walked
the comforts of her sympathy and not
iuereiv that, but also endangering the
only bond that can keep hearts to
gether an unreserved community of
thought and feeling. She will soon
perceive that. something is preying
npon your mind ; and true love will
not brook reserve ; it feels undervalu
ed and outraged, whence ven tbe sor
rows of those it loves arc concealed
4 Oh, but, my friend! to think what
a blow I am to give to all her future
prospects how I am to strike her
very soul to the earth, by telling her
that her husband is a beggar ! that
she is to forego all the elegancit'3 of
life all the pleasures cf society to
shrink with me into indigence and
obscurity ! To tell her that I have
dragged her down from the sphere In
which she might have continued to
move in constant brightness the
light of every eye the admiration of
every heart ! How can she bear pov
erty ? she has been brought up in all
the refinements of opulence. How
can she bear neglect ? she has been
the idorof society. Oh I it will break
her heart it wiJl break her heart! "
I saw his grief was eloquent, and
I let it have its flow ; for sorrow re
lieves it.-elf by words. When his
paroxysm had subsided, and he had
relapsed in to moody silence, I re
sumed the subject gently, and urged
him to break his situation at once to
his wife. He shook his head mourn
fully, but positively.
"IJut how are v ou to keep it from
her? It is necessary she should
know it, that you may take the steps
proper to the alteration of your cir
cumstances. Vou must change your
style of living say," observing a
pang to pass acrot-s bis countenance,
"dou't let that afflict V'ou. I am sure
you have never plucedyour happiness
ui outward show vou have yet
friends, who will n61 think the worse
of you fur being less splendidly lodg-
d : aud surely it does not require a
palace to lie happy with Mary "
"I could be happy with her," cried
he, convulsively, "in a hovel! I
could go down with her into poverty
and the dust ! I could I could God
blass her! Jod bless herP cried he,
bursting into a transport of grief and.
"And believe me, my friend," said
I, stepping np, and grasping him
warmly by the hand, "believe me she
can be the same with you. Ay, more:
it will be a source of pride and tri
umph to her it will call forth all the
latent energies and fervent sympa
thies of her nature : for she will re
joice to prove that she loves you for
yourself. There is in every true wo
man's heart a spark of heavenly fire,
which lies dormant in the broad day
light of prosperity ; but which kindles

hour of adversity. No man knows
what the wife of his bosom is no

she is until he has gone with her
through the fiery trials of this world.";
There was something in the earn
estness of my manner, and the figur
ative style of my language, that
eauirht the excited imagination of
Leslie. I knew the auditor I had to
deal with ; aud following up the im
pression I had made, I finished by
persuading hini to go borne and un
burden his sad heart to his wife.
I must confess, not withstanding
all I had said, I felt some little solic
itude for the result. Who can calcu
late m the fortitude of one whose
life has been a round of pleasures?
Her gay spirits might revolt at the
dark downward path of low humility
suddenly pointed out before her, and
might cling to tbe sunny regions in
which they had hitherto revelled.
Besides, ruin in fashionable life is ac
eorupaiocd by so many galling mor
tifications, to which in other ranks it
ia a stranger. In short, I could not

where it is allied to love. She feels
as yet r.o priration ; she suffers no
loss of accustomed conveniences nor
elegancies. When we come partially
to experience its sordid cares, its
paltry wants, its petty humiliation!?
then will be the real trial."
"But,' said I, "now that you have
got ovor the severest task," that of
brer-king it to her, the sooner you kt
the world into the secret the better. I

point I found Leslie perfectly prepar
ed, lie had no fnl-e pride himself,
and as to his wife, sho was only anx
ious to conform to their altered for
tunes. Some days afterwards he called
up ni ii. e m im evening, lie nan (lis-

So me of thesweetest moments of their

icennirs nau neconic strongly interes
ted in the progress of this family
story, and as it was a Sue evening, I
offered to accompany him.
He was wearied with the fatigues
: fell into a St of gloomy muinj
'Poor Marv!' at length broke,
with a heavy sigh, from his lips.
"And what of her ?" asked I : has
anything happened to her?"
"What," said he, darting sn impa
tient glance, "is it nothing to be re
duced to this paltry situation to be
caged in a miserable cottage to be
obliged to toil a:mot m the menial
concerns of a wretched habitation.
"Has she then repined at the

"Admirable girl!" exclaimed I.
"You call yourself j-oor, my friend ;
you never were so rich you never
knew the boundless treasures of ex
ceilenec you pos.sess in that woman."
"Oh ! but, my friend, if this first
meeting at the cottage were over, I
think I could then I.-e comfortable.
IJut this is her first day of real ex

employed ail day in arranging its
miserable equipments she has, for
the first time, known the fatigues of
domestic employment she -lias, for
the first time, looked around her on a
home de.-titute of every thing elegant,
almost ef every thing convenient ;
and may now be sitting down, cx
hausted and spiritless, brooding over
a prospect of future poverty."
There was a degree of prtbability
in this. picture that I could not gain
say,' so we walked on in silence.
After turning from the main road
up a narrow lane, so thickly shaded
wun forest trees as to give it a com
plete air of seclusion, we came in
sight of the cottage. It was humble
enough in its appearance for the most
pastoral poet, and yet it had a pleas
ing rural look. A wild vine had
overrun one end with a profusion of
foliage ; a few trees threw their
brant Ires gracefully over it ; and I ob
served several pots of flowers .aste
ful'y disposed about the door, and on
the grat-s-plot in front. A small
wicket gate opened upon a footpath
that wound through some shrubbery
to the doer. Just as we approached,
we heard the sound ef music Leslie
grasped my arm; we paused and lis
tened. It was Mary's voice singing,
iu a style of tbe most touching sim
plicity, a little air of which her hus
band was peculiarly fond.
I felt Leslie's hand tremble on my
ana. He stepped forward to hear
more distinctly. His step made a
noise on the gravel walk. A bright
beautiful face glanced out at the win
dow and vanished a light footstep
was heard and Mary came tripping
forth to meet us: she was in a prtty
rural dress cf white: a few wild
flowers were twisted in her fine hair :
a fresh bloom was on her cheek ; her
whole countenance Icanicd with
smiles I had never seen her look so
"My dear Gorge," cried she, "I
am so glad you are come! I Lave
been rnnning down the lane, and look
ing out f r you. I've been gathering
some of the most ceTicious straw
iK'rries, for I know you are fond of
them and we have such excellent
cream and every thing is so sweet
and still here Oh I" said she put
ting her arm within b;s, and looking
up brightly in hi? face, ' Ob, wc shall
be so happy I" .
Poor Leslie was overcome, nc

again and again be could not speak,
but the tears gushed into bis eyes,

could see within the cface the clerks
selling papers as fast as they could
handle them, while the mob pushed
and jammed and yelled in frantic !
forts to obtam copies, the presses in
the cellar meanwhile, clanging away
like mad. Upon the curbstone in

stretching down the street for tour

that his poetry had touched a j-mpa-

cause before entering. He obtained
a chair, and, placing it by the side

J. Alfred Brunner, holding the Morn

fringe which grew in a semi-circle
around the edge of bis Laid Lead
stood straight out, until be seemed
to resemble a gigantic gun-swab.
Two or three persons stood in front
