MARIETTA, PA., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1863. CHORUS' , For The Mariettian. . BEFORE AND AFTER; or, Fivo Phases of Married Life. By Grantellus CHAP'TE'R VIII [AN UNPONGENIAL PLIASE-4fter.l "And canst thou not accord thy heart In unison with WhoSe langnagelthouatone hast heard, Thou only carist , Bad 'Mr. and Mrs. Thomew, imme diately after the solemnization of their nuptials, with more of that wisdom which is from abOVe, and less of that impulsiveness which is from below-- with more mutual concession, and, less ObStinate- identity of individualidm— endeavored to harmonize and unite into one purpose their Partially discordant natures, it would have been better for their own present, and perhaps future happiness, as well as fur the welfare of their posterity. But most unfortunate ly, this was not the case; and in every subsequent year of their lives, from habits of thought, taste and' pursuit, they became more unlike each other, and consequently more uncongenial as ; and although neither of them would for a moment have thought 'of doing external violence to' their mar riage obligations, yet it seemed obvious that they did not truly lov - e each other —that is, not spiritually or mentally— or were greatly mistaken in the nature of such a sentiment, and the duties it enjoins. Two or three little things con nected with the mental status of Thoniew became manifest to her bus baud, which were not calculated to en. hence her, in his esteem, although they I may not have been regarded. in that eyes. of the world as detrimental to her char acter as a wife 'and a woman: .Mr. Thornew discovered - that his wife had:no taste for literature, it she .had not a, positive aversion for books,of any kind and for the sentiments which they ,con taiued. He also discovered that,she, could scarcely write, her own name, and that in her, ,eorrespondence with him during his absence,- she CI a d employed .an arnenuensis.' This individual, wiihOut the knowledge or consent of Mr. Thom ew, course' had read all of his 'confi dential epistles'to Dliss Doliman, a con; tiugency.iii Allele intercourse' of which - , he was altogether unconscious; Tor he had.supposed she had been actively en-' gaged in the cultivation'' of her mind; notwithstanding the peculiar quality of her' supposed `literary productions,. and the singular effect they had upob him, whilst in correspondence 'with her. Now Thocnew, from his boyhood up, had he'en•rather diffident, and aboVe all things in the world, he would not have had his love-lettera — exposed to any other perusal than that of the one, he loved ; and therefore when he made this discovery, he Melt. that the, sanctity, of. his social domain had been madely in vaded. Although this .circumstance produced an irritating, effect on ,his. mind, yet he, endeavored as speedily, as . possible to regard it as a disagreeable„ bygone. Still, Mrs. Thomew was not so much to blame, for she really did not. know any ,betandnot, ter, could perhaps, , do any better ; for, like. many, others in the world she had reached womanhood without having become sensible of her intellectual' deficiencies,' ab'd. when she at last did see•them, she' Was too proud or.too timid to acknowledge her igno rance, by making an effort to improve' her mental cond.tion. But there is no knowing what improvement she 'might have been capable: of; or' even have taken a' delight in, had Mi. Thotneat hiniself.gentltykiodly, and lovingly, vol unteeredlo become her instructor ; but no,,iacting 4 altogether Under a disap pointed youthful impetubsity, hiS con duct was only cidculated to impress,up on lier'mitia "the idea 'that she was even pore deficient than she really, 4111; 'h'er inSudiai'ous course, by way of retaliation, she made many serious lThinders.' Mrs.' ThhitieW had 'Made 'the c r idus canfessina, after her marriage, that had not Mr. Thomew returned just when be did, she wOuld have considered her engagement with him broken, and would have acted accordingly_; and what was duito,asi inexcusable, she foolishly persisted denying her age, or at leait in;co.ncealia:g it. •Although these things, mauifested,nq criminality on the,part of Mrs. Thomew, but were rather to be'' regarded as the evidences of the false training which sbe had received from her bosom friends, if not from her pa. rents; and also of a want of energy to pursue a pioper course, and avail her self of the educational opportunities of her girlhood ; yet, to a mind constitu. ted as, Mr. Thomew's was,- which, :at a late-period had , become sensible of the existence of a higher world than the mere world of sensuous feeling—a mind just then .in' the effOrt to elevate itself above the boilings of the moral and dn. tellectual chaos in which it feund itself; and without those- fixed and judicious principles of actiom.which, under other circumstances, might have eharaterized the,inan of maturer years ;. to hint:them at this, critical period; these things :un duly magnified themselves, and• unhaP pily produced a'line of conduct that was only calculated to .widen: a breach be tween ;them ; the existence of which, was not visible, to, the .material- world by'which. they .were surrounded. Mrs; Thomew was incorrigable, and immova: bly , fixed, in her ways—perhaps because she could not • be otherwise—and Mr. Thomew had neither the penetration nor'the patience- to even make an effort to discover the necessary means, to cor rect what.ought to haverbeen corrected, and to concede, or conform to, what his wife might herself feel disposed to cor rect, after. she had .once come into the proper state of knowledge and convic tion. Mr. Thomew,: .partly. to gratify that hunger for knowledge which had not been sufficiently fed in his youth, and partly to fill up a'romantie vacuum in his heart, which, from .the illiteracy of his wife, she could. not, or would not make the least intelligent effort to fill —now devoted himself entirely to books, and kindred pursuits, whenever he could command*the time not necessarily em ployed in earning the means to provide for his family ; and, perhaps in a. reck less--state of literary intoxication he may have deiroted`many hoiars in profit less pursuits, that would have been of more Practical utility, if they had been devoted to his lamilY, in furdishing them with that early training Which ought to come from a mother, but which is never thelesa obligatory also upen a father; this is the interne/ of the status of Mr. and Mrs. Thoinew;' externally—with the ex ception of an occasional misunderstand ing, and, consequent 'ill-advised expres sion of sentiments,—there, was nothing, for the world, or the civil law, to take cognizance of. They were both iedus trious, chaste, and frugal; both, bad en deared themselves to others fortheexcel lence' of their characters, and their order ly bearing ; but still there was.not a sin gle thing under the sue ,in, which they seemed to have a mutual, iiteresi and sympathy, and as Mr. Thomew on every subsequent opportunity increased his stock of books and devoted his time to them, 'Ws/ Thames , seemed to cencerve the'greater borrar and aversian'to'them, perhaps in some ineaSure justly too—for they deprived , her of many hours of social intercourse with her hus band, that must have: made him as un congenial to her as she could possibly" 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 tion of• its-Merits or its demerits, if she had read 'it. • 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 worthy, 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 parents, towards their children. With all, his mental attainments,.Mr. Thoinew did not appear to have ,a prop-. er, living conception of his duty to `love, support and protect" his wife, ac VOL. 10.-NO. 13. cording to the spirit of his marriage ob ligations—perhaps, because he did not conceive that his Wile's opposite or perverse character was a thing which he could reasonably be expected to love, or'perhaps he was cherishing an ideal of feMale excellence, that never could be realized in ticis world. If this I was 'he case with Hr. Thomew, it e'er"- Utility was not leas the case:with lire. Thomew; for she did not appear to I have the least 'Conception of her obliga tion •to "lode; horrer"ridd 'Obey" her hus band in anything pertaining to 'his tastes„abilities, or - jUdgmerit, enless it first received the endOrsem'ent of some of "her friends,' who'ere generally as Illiterate •as herself. This characteristie of the mother, was u'nh transmit, ted to the children, together With tha imperioesbess end strong seltwill or the father ; and thus they beenini3 by inher= itance, so obstinate and Seff-Willed, that J. the acquired inculcations of a "divided' house," could aftervvards,onlyexercise a partial influence : over, them., These, things,viere not strikingly visible to the outer world,- by which Mr. land Mrs. Thomew were, surrounded„ if. they were seen, by that world ; at all ; but.never-, theless they had ,n,,real existence, al though both these people, otherwise, performed externally- their duties to their farnifY and'society; in'sich a Milt rieil as 'tn.elicit t lit approbation of their friends'and' neighbors. Thrbugh many' long years "this State of thingi continued in the tinnily of Mr.Thorlielo;sometimes greatlk to the an n °yeti 66 '`f the hither and husband, but' infinitely' more bur densome to the' Mother and ;wife, be cause not haying Cultivated her mind in early life, at a. later period, lier vvhthe . time became absorbed in a continuous round ofdomestic labor As is`ustiallY : the ease, under such circumstances, the labors of the family were bat illy divid; ad ; for somehow, Mrs. Thomei's de- . , . fective system, left the brunt of its practical operation upon her own head and hands. Nobody could do anything good enough for,her, and therefore, en-, ) tirely overrating her own skill and_abily, ties, and undevestinating, that of her; children, they never were taught , how thing should be done, and of ,course,' they in turn did not.care much when it. was done, if done at-all. And yet with all these disadvantages the Thomeive had many worthy traits of characteir,l and notvrithstaneing the'fixed 'hnc'onge [delay of mind, taste and temper, in the parents, they had lived so long together as man and wife, and had'been so faith ful and single in their connubial rela tions, that they finally by a sort of tacit understanding "agreed to disagree," and. lived on in the spheres of a seperate in dividuality, although they, never far a, moment dreamed of confining themselves to a seperate "bed and board." When the children at length, through " line upon line and precept upon precept," not only at home,—but more especially , through the teachers to whom they had . been consigned—had come to ender ; stand their true relations.to society, and the 'duties and responsibilities devolving , upon them, they begarne useful and or derly citizens ; but, it was not the less perceptible to themselves as well as to, the ruore'philosophically penetrating•of • their friends, that the strong hereditary biases transmitted to thew . by their pa. rents,—iu consequence of the, unconge: niality of heir temperameirts--inipo.sed upon them many disadvantages and temptation struggles, that they might, under racire favorable auspices, liaie been, in a measure,' free frorri: MY: and ' Mrs. TEtomew lived many years to ether as exainidary "man and wife," final* noPing,' klaht if it was best that they shbuld i 'be one in thb endogen woullibring it to pass ;" but believing. after all, that "the fellowship of Congo nial Christian minds" alone, • "is like NI that above," and with this view, the were at last "gathered to their. fathera.l- ar "My wife," said a wag, ,the other last night," "came near calling me honey last night."
