Kio?, Lilma, Sn?jnchthonl,
Twas night; and through her dark Tale.
Low winda pass'd on in solemn wail,
Methought their tones a fanerai dirge? ' i
Sweeping along to death's dark verge.
For musing on myself at most,
I gave up hope and deemed me lost;
When suddenly I hoard the cry
"Eloi, lama.'sabaehthanil"' UT
Startled. I turned minc eyes to see,
When lo! on shrouded Cal vary,'" , .
A death scone o'er my trembling soul
In awful grandeur did unroll ; ,
For on tho Croas-O, glori ou s gUEl
A God, resurging hie for man, ".
He cried ana turned td Hoav'n' his eye,
"Eloi, lama, aabaohtkani!"
I heard-then gathered in its might,
A whirlwind o'er my soul that night;
But hope returned, and then at last,
The whirlwind in its might had past,
And o'er me roso a heav'nly calm,
For I bad found the healing balm;
And now I liv?, by Christ's death cry- |
"Eloi, lama, sabaohthanil"
There are widows and widows, sarcasti
cally remarks the Saturday Beriete. There |
are those who are bereaved, and those who
are released; those who lose their sapport, j
and those whose, chains are broken; those j
wno are sunk in desolation, nnd those who
wake np into freedom. Of the first we will
net speak. Theirs'is .a sorrow too sacred to
be publioly handled, oven with sympathy;
bnt the second demands no snoh respectful
reticence. The widow who is no sooner re?
leased from one husband than she plots for
another, and the widow who leaps into liber?
ty over the grave of a gaoler, not a lover,
are fair game enough. They have always
been favorite subjects for authors to exorcise
their wits on;, and while men are what they
are-laughing animals, apt to see the humor
lying in incongruity, and with a spice of the
devil to sharpen that same laughter into
satire-they will remain favorite subjects,
tragic as the state is when . widowhood is
deeper than mere outward condition.
There are manx varieties of the widow,
and all are not beautiful. For ono, there is
the widow who','is .bent on re-marrying,
whether men like it or not-that thing of
prey who goes about the world seeking
whom she maj. devour; that awful creature
who bears down on her victims with a vigor
in her assaults that puts to flight the popu?
lar fancy about the weaker sex and the dis?
tribution of power. No hawk, poised over
a brood of hedge birds; no shark, cruising
steadily towards a shoal of small fry; no pi?
ratical craft, sailing under a free flag and
accountable to no law save success, was ever
more formidable to the weaker things pur?
sued, than is the hawk widow bent on re?
marrying. She knows so much; there is
not a manoeuvre by which a victory oan bo
stolen that she has not mastered, and she is
not afraid of even the most desperate mea?
sures. When she has once struck, he would
be a clever man and a bold one who could
escape her. Generally left but meagrely
provided for in worldly goods-else her
game would not. bo so difficult-she makes
up for her poverty here by her wealth of
bold resources, and by tho courage with
which she takes her own fortunes in hand,
and, with her own, those of ?her more eligi?
ble masculine associates. Sho is a woman ;
of purpose, and lives for an end; and that j
end is re-marriage. If fate has dealt hardly !
by her-though, may bo, compassionately
by her successive spouses-and has landed
her in the widowed state twice or thrice,
she is nowise daunted, and as little abashed.
She merely refits after a certain time of an?
chorage, and goes out into the open again
for a repetition of her chance. She has no
notion of a perpetuity of weeds, and, though
she may have cleared her half century, with
a margin besides, thinks the suggestive i
orange-blossoms of the bride infinitely f
more desirable than the fruitless heliotrope
of the widow. If one husband is taken,
she remembers tho old proverb, and reflects
on the many, quite as good, who nre poten?
tially left subject to her ohoico. And some?
how she manages. It has been said that
any woman can marry any man if she de?
termines to do se? and follows on the line
of her determination with tenacity and
common sense. The hawk widow exempli?
fies the truth of this saying. She determines
upon marriage, and she usually succeeds;
the question being one of victim only, not
of sacrifice. One has to fall to her share;
there is no help for.it; and the whole con?
test is, which Bhall it be? which is strong?
est to break her bonds? which craftiest to
slip out of them? which most resolute, not
to bear them from the beginning? This
the straggling covey must settle among
themselves the best way they can. When
the hawk pounces down upon its quar?
ry, it is sauve qui peid! But all cannot
be saved. One has to be caught, nnd
the choice is determined partly by chance,
and partly by relative strength. When
the widow of experience and resolve bears
down upon her prey, the result is equal?
ly certain. Floundering avails nothing;
struggling and splashing are justas futile;
one among the crowd has to come to the
slaughter, and to assist at his own immola?
tion. The best thing he can do is to make
a handsome surrender, and to let the world
of men and brothers believe ho rather likes
his position than not.
But there.are pleasanter typos of tho re?
marrying widow than this. There is the
widow of the Wildman kind, who has out?
lived her grief and is not disciplined to a
repetition of the matrimonial experiment,
if asked thereto .by ,an. experimenter after
her own heart. But in a. pretty, tender,
womanly way; if not quite so timidly as a
girl, vet as a becomingly in her degree, and
with that peculiar fascination which nothing
but the combination of exp?rience and mo?
desty can give. The widow of the Wadman
kind is no creature of prey, neither shark
nor hawk; at tho worst she is but a cooing
dove; making just the sweetest little noise
in tho world, the tenderest little call, to in?
dicate her whereabouts, and to show that
she is lonely and feels it. She sits close,
waiting to be found, and does not ramp and
dash about liku tho hawk sisterhood ; neither
do?? she pretend that she is unwilling to bo
found, still less deny that a soft warm nest,
well lined and snugly sheltered, is better
than ^'.lonely branch, stretching out com?
fortless and bare into tho bleak wide world.
She, too, is almost sore to get what sho
watits, with the advantage of being volun?
tarily chosen andhotunwilliugly submitted
to. This is tho kind of woman who is
always mildly but thoroughly- happy.in her
married life; unless indeea*her husband
should bo a brute, which Heaven forefend.
She lives in peaco and bland contentment
while tbe fates permit, and when he dies she
buries him decently ami laments him deco?
rously; but she thinks it folly to spend her
life ia wocpiug by the sido of his cold grave,
when her tears cnn do no good to either of
them. Rather she thinks it a proof of her
love for him, aud the evidence of how trne i
was ber happiness, that she should elect to j
give him a successor. Her blessed expe- j
rieuce in th? past has made her trustful in
the future; and because she has fouud oue I
mini faithful she thinks that all are Abdiels.
As a rule, this type of woman does find men i
plcasnut, and by her own nature insures j
domestic happiness. She is always tenderly, I
and never passionately, in love, even with
tho husband shu lins loved the best; she
gives in to no excesses to the right or the
left; her temperament is of that serene
moon-light kind which docs not fatigue
others nor wear out its possessor; without
ambition, or the power to ding herself into
any absorbing occupation, she lives only to
please and be plea,- 1 at home; and if she is
nota wife, wearing "uer light fetters loving?
ly, and proud that ie is fettered, she is
nothing. As some women are born mothers
and others aro born nuns, so is the Wndman
woman a born wife, and shines in no other
character or capacity. But in this she ex?
cels; and knowing this, she sticks to her
role, how frequently soever the interlocutor
may be changed.
There are widows, however, who have no
thought or desire for remaining anything
but widows-wLo have gained the worth of
tho world in their condition. "Jeune, riche,
ct xeuve-quel bonheur.'" says the French
wife, eyeing inon mart askance. Can the
most exacting woman ask for more? And
truly such a one is in the most enviable po?
sition possibly to a woman, supposing al?
ways that she has not lost in her husband
thc man she loved. If sho has lost only the
mau who sat by right at the same hearth
with herself-perhaps the mau who quarrel?
ed with her across the ashes-sho has lost
her burden, and has gained her release.
The cross of matrimony lies heavy on many
a woman who never takes the world into 1
her confidence, and who bears in absolute j
silence what she hns not the power to cast j
from her. Perhaps her husband has been \
a man of note, a man of learning, of ele?
vated station, a political or philanthropic
power. She alono knew tho fretfulness, the
petty tyranny, thc miserable smallness at
home of the man of large repute, whom his j
generation conspired to honor, and whose j
public life was a mark for the future to dato
by. "When he died, tho press wrote his eu?
logy and his elegy; but his widow, when
sho put on her weeds, sang softly in her
own heart a ptean to tho great Kiug of i
Freedom, and whispered to herself Lauda
mus, with a sigh ol' unutterable relict. To !
such a woman widowhood lins no senti- j
mental regrets. She has come into posses- ;
sion of the goods for which, perhaps, she
sold herself; she is young enough yet to en?
joy, to project a future; she hus the freo
choice of a maid, and the free action of a
matron, as no other woman has. She maj'
be courted, and she need not bo chaperoned
nor yet forced to accept. Experience has I
mellowed and enriched her; for though the !
asperities of her former condition were j
sharp while they lasted, they had not time ?
permanently to roughen or embitter her. '
Tuen the senso of relief gladdens, while the I
sense of propriety subdues her; and the deli- ?
cate mixture of outside melancholy, tem?
pered with internal warmth, is wonderfully
enticiug. Few men know how to resist
that gentle sadness which does not preclude ?
the sweetest sympathy with pleasure in
winch she may not join-with happiness
whioh is, alas! denied ber. It gives an air !
of such profound unselfishness; it asks so I
mutely, so bewitchingly, for consolation, j !
Even ti hard man is moved at the sight of a j
pretty widow in the funeral black of her j
first grief, sitting apart with a patient smile, j
anil eyes cast meekly down, as one not of
the world though in it. Her loss is too re- j
cent to admit of auy thought of reparation; ?
und yet what man does not think of that |
time of reparation? and if she is more than I ;
usually charming in person, and well dow?
ered in purse, what man does not think of <
himself as the best repairer she could take? i 1
Then, as time goes on, and she glides grace- | '
fully into the era of mitigated grief, how
beautiful is her whole manner, how tasteful
her attire! The most exquisite colors of the
rampant kind look garish beside her dainty
tints, and the untempered mirth of happy
girls is coarse beside her faint subdued ad
mission of moral sunshine. G roys as ton
der as a dove's breast; regal purples which
have a glow behind their gloom; stately
silks of sombre black, softly veiled by
clouds of gauzy white -nil speak of passing
time, and the gradual blooming of the
spring after the sadness of the winter; all
symbolize tho flowers which are growing
ever on the sod that covers tho dear depart?
ed; all hint at tho melting of tho funeral
gloom into a possible bridal. Sb? begins,
too, to take pleasure in the old familiar
things of life. She steals into a quiet back
seat at the opera; she just walks through a
quadrille; she sees nb harm in a fete or
flower show, if properly companioned.
Winter does not last forever, and a life?
long mourning is a wearisome prospect, so
she goos through her degrees in accurate
order, and comes out at tho end radiant.
For when the faint shadows cast by the
era of mitigated grief fade away, she is the
widow par excellence-the blooming widow, '
young, rieb, gay and free; with the world
on her side, her fortune iu her hand, and
tho hall at her foot. She ie the freest wo?
man alive; freer even than any old maid to
be found. Freedom, indeed, comes to the
old maid when too late to enjoy it; at least
in certain directions: for while she is yoong,
she is necessarily in bondage, and when pa?
rents and guardians leave her at liberty, tho
world and Mrs. Grundy take up the reins,
and hold them pretty tight. But the widow
is os thoroughly emancipated from the con?
ventional bonds which confine the free
action of a maid as she is from those which
fetter the wife; and only she herself knows
what she lins lost and gained. She bore her
yoke well while it pressed on her. It galled
her, but she did not wince; only when it
was removed did she become fully conscious
how great had been the burden, from her
seuso of infinite relief. Tho world never
knew that she had passed under tho harrow;
probably it wonders nt her cheerfulness,
with the dear departed scarce two years
dead ; and som o say how sweetly resigned she
is, and others how unfeeling. She is neither,
she is simply free after having lived in bond?
age, and she is glad in consequence. But she
is dangerous. lu fact, she is tho most dan?
gerous of all women to men's peace of
mind. She does not want to marry again
does not mean to marry again for many
years to come, if ever; granted; but that
does not say that she is indifferent to ad?
miration or careless of men's society. And
being without serious intentions herself,
she does not reflect that she may possibly
mislead and deceive others who have no
such cause as she has for bewaring of the
pleasant folly. In the exercise of her pre?
rogative as a free woman, able to cultivate
the dearest friendships with men, and fear?
lessly using her power, she entangles many
a poor fellow's heart which she never wished
to engage more than platonically, and
crushes hopes which she had not the slight?
est intention to raise. Why cannot men bo
her friends? she asks, with a pretty, plead?
ing look-a tender kind of despair at the
wrong-headedness of the stronger sex.
But, tender as she is, she does not easily
yield even when she loves. The freedom
she has gone through so much to gain, she
does not rashly throw away; and if ever the
day comes when she gives it up into tho
keeping of another-and for all her protesta?
tions it comes sometimes-the man to whom
she succumbs may congratulate himself on
a victory moro flattering to his vanity, and
moro completo in its surrender of advan?
tages, than he could have gained over any
other woman. Belie or heiress, of higher
rank or of greater fame than himself, no
unmarried woman conk! have made such a
sacrifice in her marriage ns did this widow
of means and good looks, when she laid her
freedom, her joyous present, and a poten?
tial future, iu his hand. He will be lucky
if ho manages so well that he is never re?
proached for that sacrifice-if his wife
never looks back regretfully to the time
vvhen sho was a widow, and if thero are no
longing glances forward to tho possibilities
ahead, mingled with sighs at tho difficulty
of retracing a step when fairly made. On
the whole, ii a woman can live without
love, or with nothing stronger than a tender
sentimental friendship, widowhood is the
most blissful stat" she. can attain. But if
she is of a loving nature, and fond of home,
finding her own happiness in the happiness
of others, and indiff?rent to freedom
thinking, indeed, feminine freedom only
auother word for desolation-she will bc
miserable until she has doubled her expe?
rience, and carried on the old into tho new.
