Death of Alice Cary.
Miss Alice Cary, the poetess, was
buried yesterday from the church of
the Stranger, in New York. At the
age of tifiy-oue, this distinguished
literary woman disappears from on
existence, in which, in spite of a fee
ble physical onMiuzntion, she has won
an enduring fame by a refined and bu
sy pen. Never in her life possessing
an overflowing vitality, she has long
been a sufferer from career, nnd for
the Int two years, from paralysis.
No word has reached U3 ol late, that
her sickness had assumed n fatal as
pect, nnd her death on Sunday morn
ing must have been unexpected. She
has gone, leaving manv lines which
will not perish and no line that any
true and gentle nature could wish to
; Alice Cary was born in this county
in 1820, a few miles North ol Cinciu
nati, where she and her sister Pheobe.
also unmarried, continued to live un
til they removed to New York twenty
one years ago. For the last twenty
five years Alice Cary has been a wri
ter for -the press and magazines, her
field beinjr poetry and fiction. The
delicate, flavor of her poetry attract
ed attention at the ouUet of her ca
reer. Almost every pdem she has
ever published Iia3 tliis merit, a totfeh
of power in illuminating a word or
turning a descriptive passage that is
entirely her owu. Her first complete
poetical triumph in the popular sense
was in 'Ljra, first published in the
Home Journal wtth a Hatterins notice
by N ' P. Wilis, ; who admiringly
pointed "out that it was-n woman's
echo of Milton's "Lj-cidas." Miss
Gary's novels are quiet pictures, beau
tiful in seutiment und transparent as
crystal in moral tone, but not striking
an incident or arrangement, nor m
dicative of breadth in the delineations
of men and women. ' Uu-t her poems
have-Jk quality that is due to her geni
us that no mind except her own
could precisely impart. Prior to
1860 several ot Miss Cary's stories
appeared in this journal in a serial
form, having been written expressly
for the Commercial; and many of her
original poems hrst appeared in our
columns. Tho stories were widely
read and enjoyed, and -the ptems were
universally copied. -" ; "
In J 850 Alice and Phoebe removed
to New York, where they have resid
ed ever since, snrrounSed by a com
fort and c jraparutive elegance of their
own c-eation, and by friends of influ
ence, who were attracted by their cul
tivaied minds nnd genial manners.
Alica hi always been an - industrious
worker, and her productions were
much sought after -by the most esten
sive publishers of . the .- metropolis.
She labored faithfu ly and intensely,
for. n was not enough for her to have
a happy thought jbr a felicitous theme.
Every word must have a polish, aud
every verse a perfume like ibat of a
wild flower. No creature'; that ever

dutifully thau Alice Cary, and lew of
the world's crreatcst singers -' have in
terpreted it in Aiore picturesque and
telling lines. In play of the lmagina
tion Alice Cary is unrivaled among
our poetesses. Iter imagination soar
ed, even like Shakspeare's, into weav
ing new meanings, for words.' She
led the calm, retired life of a maiden
lady, and it is not strange that her
writings are graceful rather than stir
ring. Her poems are symmetrical,
finished, dainty, sweet, very clear in
meaning, ana lainy now in mus ic-
her rank as an American poetess
must remain a matter of opinion,
but we shall remember her as first
among those of her sex and her era.
Her several published volumes of po
etry will go down to posterity, and
she will. always fill a niche that the
spark of divine fire alone can -render
sacred from oblivion.

summer in New England, and there
she wrote the following beautiful
lines. While they serve to roroiud
us of how much genius must hence
torth be hidden iuXhc grave, they dis

os most touching that in Alice Cary's
nature there was such a wealth ot
beautiful thought that' her anguish
was often forgotten even when death
was gathering its deeper shadows

And on thy daisy-fringed pillows to lie.

It was doubtless Miss Cary's early
determination to strive for the highest
poetical and literary success, and with
good health she would have been a
writer ot wonaeriui energy, sieauy
grawth, and now iu the golden prime
of her powers. Her dream gradually
laded, not from the lack ot success or
lecognition for .her- more ambitious
elfarls, but because she had not the
strength to endure the strain. The
statement has been printed that she
was educated at College Hill. This
is incorrect. She received no educa
tion ex.-ept such as could be obtained
in a little country echool-hoi.se, but
Lshe was very studious aud read'all the
books within reach, xl is remember
ed among her former neighbors that
she was a veiy pretty girl, and when : t
the age oi eighteen her earnest poem
was printed in the Universalist j aper
in this city, the Star of the West, the
admiration felt for her by ber young
acquaintances was not unmixed with
reverence, for yetting into prii-t in
those days was no 6light - distinction.
The neighbors ot the Cary family had
often noticed an unusual vein of sen
timent in its members, and in Pheobe
and Alice the veiu assumed a poetical
flow. Their first joint volume of po
ctry was issued from a Philadelphia
house in 1850. Iu 1851 Alice wrote
the first series of tho "Clovcixo k
Papers," eeveral editions of which
were sold in America and Great Brit
ain. The first novel written by Alice
"Hagar, a Story of To-day," was
brought out in the Cincinnati Com
mercial in 185'', and n second series
of 'Cloveinook Papers" ill the follow
ing year. Red field fe Co., of New
York, published a volume called "Ly
ra, and other poems," iu 1853. The
"Clovernook Children," a juvenile,
appeared in 1854, The novel "Marri
ed, Not Mated" dates irom 1856.
She continued to write poems, stories
and Magazine articles up- teethe- pr s
ent year, revealing no lulling olf iu
beauty and lorce in spite of the sink
iug currents of life. About ten 3-ears
ago she wrote to a friend in,the West:
I am ashamed of my work. The
great bulk of what I have written is
poor stuff. .Some of it nutyLe indi
cates ability to do better that is
about all. I tb.iuk I am more simple
and direct less diffuse and encum
bered with ornament than iu iormer
years all probably because I have
lived longer and thought more." . Ten
years ago the noble ambition ditd;
the poetess was still fired to show the
world some day her gift at its very best.
It has been decreed that . she might
not; yet Alice Cary goes to her
grj.ve to-day with the pei'lect respect,
the profound admiration and the last
ing affection of her countrymen aud
country women. Her applause might
have been more demonstrative, not
more sincere and lasting. C'in. Com.
