Mrs. Thomew, but were rather to be''

and to concede, or conform to, what his
wife might herself feel disposed to cor

is the interne/ of the status of Mr. and
Mrs. Thoinew;' externally—with the ex
ception of an occasional misunderstand

for the world, or the civil law, to take
cognizance of. They were both iedus

seemed to have a mutual, iiteresi and

subsequent opportunity increased his
stock of books and devoted his time to

perhaps in some ineaSure justly
too—for they deprived , her of many

be to him.-' They may have- been aptly
compared to a pigeon and a thick united
in a marriage union, both good and use
ful animals in their, way, but delighting
in elemeuts,diverse and uncongenial to
each , other. Mr, Thomew's greatest
delight-in life,woald have been to have
a'Wife to whom he,. could have poured
out hissoul in a mutual correspondence,
when he was necessarily absent from
her; ; and to have read and-sympathixed •
with him - in his humble literary pro
ductions; but alas ! he never had the
least evidence that she had even read
a dingle line that he bad' even written,
or that she had bad the least apprecia

KuOwing, intelligent, and disinterest
ed christian Writers and philosophers,
have damonstrated it as their Opinion, a
hundred times over; that more .than
two-thirds of the married world are
living together in an uncongenial bond
age ; and that through, this cause it is,
that many men and women run into acts
and lives of connubial infidelity, forpi
cations and adulteries, and into the
shameless and profane systems of polyg
amy and open concubinage. The dan
ger .of falling into such habits 'of life
from this cause seems tol be enhanced
by the. habitual indifference, in;_conduct
and, bearing, between such married peo:
ple ;. and du , their saying, doing, and
acting-thing's, that before marriage they
would not let each 'other know or see
for a world of wealth - ; because such
linowledge," they:feared would work'an
alientitiOn, era ferfeiture of s'elf-respect,
and the respect of each other. The
little' personal attentions, the dignified
intercourse, and the orderly manifesta
tions, of affection, that were necessary
to win a wife or a . ..husband' before mar
riage, 'ought to be continued afterwards,
and rather increasedAthan diminished,
to the end of life. If these things were
- necessary to,utrin the affections
of each other, they are surely•of infin
itely •a higher value in:retaining ,them ;
for what, in married' life, can be more
melancholly and more disastrous to the
happiness of the married parties, than
the consciousness that they have for
feited the love and esteem of each oth
er? So cold, barren and bleak, does
such a, life of wedlock become, and so
exceedingly grievous to be hourne, and
withal .so aggravating sometimes, that
itis .not to. be wondered. at, that men
and women plunge into :deeper evils in
the false hope of findingfrelief. But, it
is to be bourne in mind, that no degree
. ,
of uncongeniality, and no act of itittda:
ity or wilful neglect on the pari of one
of the married pair; can at 'all work a
justification; 'et even a pretence, for a
similar act bytthe other. Party, although
it may constitute a great provocation
for such a retaliatory course of condUct,
In this behalf, the unalterable injlinc-
Lion of ScriPture, that, 'The soul that
sinneth', it shall die;" is in its most 'ur..-
qualified sense applicable, and the fear
fulconsequences to human destiny which
1 it conveys, had better be heeded before
the' overt act 'is committed. Notwith
standing the youthful:moral destitution
of both Mr. and Mrs. ThomeW,—hut.
especially the former—thdre-' iieetned ,
still:to be some of the grains of early
insemination remaining in their minds,
and these few grains became sufficiently,
developed afterwards, to protect' them
against the external assaults of sin and
evil. Not that they may not have been,
guilty of many acts of indiscretion, or
of sins of omission; but as to acts or
sins of commission from these, they
bad, through the providences of God,
contrived to keeP theinselves intact..L-
In many respects they were .. a praise
pair, and it waShe'dOulit. a mat
ter much regrettedby both of them., 'in
their.hours of sober reflection, that they
could not become more, of a, one, ' as to•
Mental and spiritual association and
conjunction. But, there cannot be a
perfect, assimilation in married life with
out mutual concession, and mutual con
cession is impossible-where , there is not ,
the unlikeness,; yet.the perfect: equality
of the sexes acknowledged. In their
earlier wedded life and experience, Mr.
and Mrs. Thotnew utterly failed to ap
preciate this philOsophy, and' therefore
instead of becoining blended•in internal
sympathies and aflinitiei, they became
disintegrated,. and yet when They at
tempted to analyze their feelings, and`
to imagine a state of final seperation
bet Ween them, tikeY becanie overwhelm:,
ed with melancholli; and deplored the
very idea of seperation. ,
The congenial and intimate friends of
Mrs. Thomew, were not
,the congenial
and intimate friends of, Mr. Thomew,
and vice versa ; but the friends of both .
were among the honest. and tlie decent,
although they were not, all among, the
rich and intelligent. Indeed neither of
this worthy pair placed any particular
value on , rich associates, for their cir
cumstances were always 'too' much
straightened , to make such associations
at all agreeable. BUt Mr. Thomew had'
a morbid horrorlor ignorance and illit
eracy; and perhaps Mrs. Thoffiew had
too strong - a.n 'affinity 'for them; and
these peculiar, temperaments suggested
different walks of life, and different ob
jects of taste, of beauty, and of instruc
tion to both of them. Although,they
never conversed much together, .yet
there was a sort .of mutual congest, if
they, but saw each other pursuing their,
diverse and irreconcilable occupations,
and they were really , discOntentedAf
one or the "other was•absent.for any
time,.withoht some sort•of- as explana
tory intercommunication ` . .BUt with all
this,. they DO more-understood each oth
er, and - had no more mental •delight 'iri
in the same social' and intellectual ele
merit, titer' a hen and a duck can have
in the same natural or material element,;
and as before remarked, something like
a duck , and a hen, they pursued the bent
of their own
.persopal inclinations, and
finallylearued'to endure that which it
became evident they could never cure.
The addition, periodically, of children
to the domestic circle of the 'rhomew's,
although it may have served as a cement '
to the compact between them,—and, al-
though these, little responsibilities may ;
have been the unconscious mediums of
natural affection betiveen them; ''int
they gid 'not much lessen the uncim 0- 1
nial qualities of their respective . ' minds,
for, unfortunately, they differed. eritirisly
in regard to what were their, dnties, -116
