A BROKEN HEART.
BT WASHINGTON IRV1NU.
I never heard
Of an; true affection, but t'waa nipt,
H'ith care, that the caterpillar eata;
Tiie lea tcs of the springs' sweet bud i rota
It it n mmmnn thintr to lauph. at
H in trp.it th tale of i
romantic passion as mere fictions of
noets. and novelists, that never exist-
ed in real life. My observations on
human nature have convinced me of
the contrary, and have satisfied me
that however the surface of the char
acter may be chilled and frozen by
the world, and the pleacures of soci
ety, there is still a warm current of
affection running through the depths
ol the coldest heart, that prevents it tiling that we are apt to HKe in h

and go to the full extent of Ins doc- treason against his country the elo
rines. Shall 1 confess il? I believe quent vindication of his name and
n broken hearts and the posibility his pslhetic appeal to posterity, in
of dying of disappointed love! I d tj.e hour of condemnation all these
i.ot consider it a malady often fatal jentered deeply into every generous
to my own sex; but I firmly believe bosom, and even his enemies lament
that it withers down many a lovely tr,e stern policy that dictated his
woman into an eaily grave. (execution.
Man is the creature ot interest &.
ambition. His nature leads him forth
into the struggle and bustle of the
world. Love is but the establishment
of early life, or a song piped in the
intervals of the acts. He seeks for
fame, fortune, for space in the world's
thought, and dominion over his fel
lowman. But a woman's life is a
history of the affections. The heart
is her world; it is ihere her ambition
strives for empire, It is there her ava
rice seeks for hidden treasures. She
sends forth her sympathies on adven
ture; she embarks her whole soul in
the traffic of affection; and if ship
wrecked, her case, is hopeless lor ic
is a bankruptcy of the heart.
To a man the disappointment of
love may occasion some bitter pangs;
it wounds some feelings of tender
ness it blasts some prospects of fe
licity; but he is an active being he
cm dissipate his thoughts in the whirl
f varied occupation, or plunge info
i!!9 tide of pleasure, or, if the scene
f disappointment be too full of pain
fai associations he can shift his abode
at will, and taking as it were the
wings of the morning, can fly to the
uttermost parts of the earth, and be
atjrest.
But woman's is comparatively fir
ed and meditative life. She is more
the companion of her own thoughts
: nd teelings; and if they are turned
! ministeis of sorrow, where shall
she look f.r consolation! Her lot is
to be wooed and won; and if unhappy
in her lovelier heart is like some
fortress that has been captured and
sacked, and abandoned and left desolate.
How manv bright eyes grow dim j In by horror, they would have ex
,nnW .ft trmw nalp perienccd no want c. cunsoiah i., i-
how many lovely forms fade a.rayi
into the tomb, and none can tell tr.e
cause that blijrhted their loveliness.
As the dove will clasp its wings to
its side, nnd cover and conceal the,
arrow that is previug on its vitals, so j
litis the nature of woman to hide ;
l.-om the world the pangs of wound-;
ed aJection. Th love of a deiirtatej
female is always shy and silent. E
ven when fortunate, she scarcely
breathes it to herself, but when oth
erwise, she buries it in the recess of
1 her bosom, and there lets it cower
and brood among the ruins of her
peace. Whh her, the desire of the
heart has tailed. The great charm of
her existence is at an end. She neg
lects all the cheerful exercises that
giadden her spirits, quicken the puls
es and send the tide of life in health
ful currents through the veins. Her
rest is broken--and sweet refresh
ment of sleep is poisoned by melan
choly dreams dry sorrow drink her
blood, until her unfeebled frame jinks'
under the last extornal assailant.
Look for her after a little while, and
you will find friends weeping over
her untimely grave, and wondering
that one, who but lately glowed with
all the radienco cf heal th and beauty,
should now be brought down to
"darkness and the worm." You
will be told of some wintry chill,
some slight indisposition, tliat laid her
low but no one knows the mental
malady that previously sapped her
strength, and made her so easy a
prey to the spoiler
She is like somo tender tree, the
pride Sr. beauty of the grove; grace
ful in its form, bright in it foliage,
but with the worm preying in its core
We find it suddenly witheiing.
when it should be most fresh and
luxurient. We see it drooping its
branches to the earth, and sheddinc
leaf by leaf, uutil wasted and perish
ed awey, it falls even in the stillness
of the forest, and as we muse over
the beautiful ruin, we strive in vain
to recollect the blast or thunder bolt
that could have smitten it wi;h de
cay. I have seen many instances of wo
man running to waste and self neg
lect and disappearing gradually fiom
the earth almost as if they had been
exhaled to heaven; and have repeat
edly fancied I could trace their deaths
I through the various declensions of
consumption, coin, aeomiv, laimowi
melancholy, until I reached the first
sympton of disappointed love. But
an instance of the kind was lately
told me; the circumstances are well
known in the country where they
happened, and I shall give
them in
manner they were related.
Every one must recollect the trag
ic story of Emmett, the Irish Fatriot.
for it was too touching to be soon
forgotten. During the troubles in
Ireland he was tried, corv!e;i nedrnd
executed on a charge of tif-as-m. i
His fate made a deep i,upresion on j
'public, grmnnthv. He V'UPJM
so intelligent, so brave; m eve-y
But there was one heart, whose an
caish it would be in vain to describe.
In happier days and fairer fortunes,
he had won the affections of a beauti
ful and interesting girl, the daughter
of a late celebrated Irish barrister.
She loved him with the disinterested
fervour of a woman's first nnd only
love. When every worldly maxim
arrayed itself against him when
blasted misfortune, and discrace and
danger darkened around his name,
she loved him more ardently for his
sufferings. If then his fate could n
waken even the sympathy of bis
fois, what must have been tha an
guish of her whole soul which, was
occupied by his image! Let those
tell who have had the portals of the
tomb suddenly closed between them
and the being most loved on earth,
who have set at this threshold, as one
shut out in a cold and lonely world
from whence all that was most love
ly and loving had parted.
But the horrors of such a grave fo
frightful, so dishonored! There was
nothing for mamorv to dwell upon
that could soothe the pangs of part
ingnone of those tender, though
melancholy circumstances, that en
dear the parting scene nothin? to
melt the sorrow into rles-c t tenrs
senl like the dews ( heaven, to re
vive the heart in the hour of anguish.
To render her widowed situation
more desolate, she had incurred her
father's displeasure by her unfortu
nale attachment, and was an exile
from the parental roof. But could
the svmnathv and kind offices of
r . .
friends hve reached a spirit so riven

reverie, apparnnily unconscious of
the worl 1 around her. She cai ried
with her an inward wo, that mocked
at the blandishments of friendship,
and heeded not the song of the char
mer, charm he ever so wisely.
The person who told me her story
had seen her nt a masquerade.
There can le no exhibition of so far
gone wretchedness more striking and
painful than to meet it in such a
scene: To find it wanderiug like a
spectre, loneiy and joyless, where
idl around is gay to see it dressed
out in the trnpi ini;-i ofmi t':. and
looking so wan arid so wo begone, as
if il h id tried in vain to cheat the
poor heart into a momentary fonro'.
fulness of soirow. After strolling
through the splei.did and giddy
crowd, with an air of utter abstrac

that showed her insensibility to the
garnished scene, she IczJti with tl.P

panion to Valentine Vox; which work
alone tendered the Ronton Notion
when it was first established the most
(popular weekly in tho United States.
i'This new novel i entitled
SYLVKSTKR SOUND,
The Somnambulist.:
By the author of "Valentine Vox,
the Ventriloquist." The chapters
each week are embellished with a
highly finished illustration represent-
mu the humorous scenes in the work.
The author in his preface savs:
The character of tho work will be
essentially humorous; butas the thrill-
nig :-.s weii as the laughter-moving
scenes a Somnambulist may create
are innumerable, the object proposed
is to excite alternately the deepest in
terest and the most joyous mirth, by
the portrayal of the extraordinary po
sitions in which a man who acts up
on I is drermsmay be placed, end the
highly ridiculous terror he may in
p'r.."' From the ti.apters we have
:ub'ii,ied of :his novel, we are satis
fied u will he more popular than was
u Valentine Vox." It is now in course
of poublication in London, and we
have made finance Kitnts t receive
the different numbers in advance of
all otheis, so the public may rest as
sured that wc shall not be forestalled
ty any other paper in its publication.
Another new feature of the Notion
is the publication occasionally of a
number of humorous cuts cfter the
style of the London Punch. These
will all be engraved in the finest
stjle, and will never be offensive in
their character.

rriHE above is the title of a news
paper, published nt Titn qu.u,
Chctohee nation, the first number of
which was issued about the middle of
Aumst last.
The object of the council of tl '
nation, in providing for the putlit i
lion of the Cherokee Advocate, is t: .
phyiscal, moral and intellectuul i:::
provement of the Cherokee people.
It will be devoted to these ends, f i
to the defence of those rights rco-tj.-nizeJ
as belonging to them in trea.;. .-j
legally made, at different times wilii
the United States, and of such meas
ures as seem best calculated to se
cure tl t ir peace nnd happiness, picv
mote their prospeiity, nnd elevate
their character as a distinct com.tiu-
niity.
I In commencing ami sustaining
public iourna 1 in the nation, its h
cess must depend very much lipc.-.
the kind feelings, liberality and pa:
ronage of the citizens' of the I'.nued
States. Among them we a;?, assur
ed there exists generally a desire- i! .a:
the Indians should be deal: i'h up
cn just and liberal principles, & vl
ly sympathy in their chequered c:.
reer, and a deeoinfiest ia their char-
Jacter, condition ar.il destiny. Ignor
ance of their condition, opinions, and
I ci .iins, has been to them u fountain
lof many wrongs: a fountain t:om
1 which thev have been fo:ced to diitk
many uiuei liiaoi.i.-.
From this cause, measures of polj-
rv in themselvis i:i'in-U. and I r.'i.lv
