J)ij Lucy Hamilton.
Wealth, beauty, talent, position in society
were mine at the age ofuiglitoen; loving friends
were around me, though bound by fond nature's
ties to none, for my relatives bad all passed
from the earth before the recollection of their
f tenderness could sadden regret that they t cert
\not. I'ut, as yet, 1 had not since tho age of
childhood known the joy of a satisfied heart.—
The revelry of my own halls proved harshest
discord to my ear, and was submitted to only
as one of the necessary requirements of my sta
tion. Adulation was not agreeable to me, for
1 had grown tired of it even in tho nursery.—
Love was a tl ing desired but still unknown,
unfelt. A mind indifferent, a heart unsoothed
by genial sympathy, I was alone and solitary
in the midst of gaiety and crowds of adulators
Two years passed on in an unbeaming course
of heartless folly, which brought no bright con
tentment to my soul; yet, still, as if in a trance
1 hurried on Incapable of exerting my own
■independence, I allowed myself to bo borne along
by the current, beyond the pale of my own
sympathies and tastes
Of all the candidates for my favor, and there
were many—one, at last, obtained power over
me, and he, the chosen one, was not the ad
mired of the world, the loved of many hearts.
The world was against hitn, and lonely and un
happy, he sought not the sympathy ot his kind,
though bent on noble designs for their good.—
No one, save myself, seemed to understand
him; for his active exertions for the public wel
fare, were misjudged and condemned as evil.—
Yet he bore all without faltering in his course,
and, if he suffered from the unmerited scorn of
the race he served, few could trace the record
of his sufferings on his pale brow.
He stood aloof, while idle worshippers throng
ed around me, and bis voice was never hoard
in the light flatteries which proclaimed me
queen of the festive hall. And, yet, when I
turned to meet his glance of welcome sympa
thy, I met tho cold contemptuous regard which
my heartless folly merited. lie seemed to lead
me back to the pure hopes of girlhood, and, as I
gazed upon his noble brow and into the calm,
clear depths of an eye the expression of which
was that of glorious triumph over suffering, and
of determined courage in the cause of right, I
could not but reflect seriously upon the frivoli
ty of my own life, the entire neglect of all du
ty. Tho disquiet of my aroused mind was such
as to make fearful havoc upon my health.—
'Day by day 1 felt myself gradually sinking bo-
Daath a load of intolerable anguish of spirit
,'hat bowed me to the earth. Languid listless
ness had given place to the keenest sclf-re
proach and remorse, that wero devastating
both mind and body without promising a moral
There was one being in tho world who could
have aroused mo to active exertion, and be
had caused me the feeling of self-abasement.—
Yet, strange waywardness of human nature,
the daring ingrate who seemed to repel iny
(sympathy with determined coldness, was the
bnc on whom my hopes of amendment rested,
'and had by his manly scorn, awakened a love
that many, in the eyes of tho world superior,
had sued for in vain. But hopeless was the
feoling that pride vainly attempted to subdue,
for though 1 met Mr. Tracy almost every
iwhere that I appeared in public, and frequent
ly received him as a guest at iny own house, I
Was struck by the unvarying coldness and for
pial politeness of his manner when forced to
address me. At times, however, 1 fancied that
there was curiosity in the earnestness of tho
raze that fell with withering power upon me, as
incxpectadly I encountered it, after some wild
uurst of joyless mirth had evinced my partici
nation in tho general folly.
| He was one evening engaged in serious
liscoursc with a gentleman of very intellectual
kppearance, in my own drawing room,and stood
near a window where I had withdrawn to es
cape observation and to breathe the pure air.—
Their conversation was upon self-reliance,with
out which he argued there was no virtue, and
ill pretences to it wero vain and nugatory in
,li 3 extreme —that the consciousness of inward
ivorth simply, tho worth of truth, was all that
die human soul required to rest upon lor its
uipport—that it was more than wealth or pow
er, or the highest intellectual culture—without
vhicli the individual who possessed it under
irdinary circumstances, had every thing hedc
dred at his disposal—that, in short, he was as
he house based upon the rock, against which
lie rains poured and winds blew, yet fell not.
Their conversation was of long continuance,
ind when it ended, I felt that it had infused
trength and courage into my soul.
The companion of Tracey moved away, and
Tracey himself fell back into the recess of" the
vindow where I sat, and after standing with
lis back towards me for some moments, turned
.nd took the vacant seat beside me on the divan.
Y start of surprise first indicated hisconscious
less of my near proximity, but ho bowed po
itely, and noticing my pale countenance, in
juried if I were ill? I admitted only fatigue,
"ompassion and concern were visible in the
orietrating look with which he regarded me.
"Why are you not happy?" he gontly said,
s he laid his hand hpon mine, which rested up
n the window sill, —"young, lovely, gifted,
:mltliy, the worshipped idol of a crowd, what
an woman's heart desire more?"
I sighed, and bent my conscious oyes upon
be floor; and dared not inoet theglance which
know to be searching (ho innermost depths of
ly soul.
"Have you," lie continued, "vainly sou Mit
l the many what tho true heart only finds" in
ie one, pure, fervent and sympathising aft'ee
Surprised by the unexpectedness and tender
softness of this address, so different from the
stately, cold and almost annihilating contemp
tuousness from which I had suffered so much,
I made no reply, but unmindful of all around
mo, I burst into tears. The window opened to
tho ground, and he led me into the garden, and
tried to soothe and quiet mo.
When lie had succeeded, I told him I had
been a listener to his conversation, the tenor of
which had excited my hopes; and that though
my weakness was extreme dependancc upon
those around me, I thought that if some kind
and sympathising friend would aid mo in my
first efforts, I might yet wake to the conscious
worth of my existence, acknowledge the lone
liness and desolateness of my heart, which had
never yet found sympathy, and could not be
satisfied without—that to possess one valued
friend who would lie to me all 1 wished, 1 would
willingly forfeit tho advantages which fate had
showered upon mo only to make my real mise
ry more conspicuous and profound.
Upon this he poured forth the most devoted
expressions of interest and regard, which chang
ed into hopeful anticipations of future hanm
ness, the discontent and repining that had long
saddened my soul, lie also explained the cause
of the long indifference that had tortured me
into real humility of feeling. Elevated to a
pinnacle he feared my tottering strength might
fail me entirely upon listening to theadulation
of the designing and the sycophantic, and he
would not join the crowd to add only to the
number of such. Ho saw, too, the indifference
with which 1 smiled on all alike, and the list
lessness with which I regarded every thing,
and thought to excite in me concern for tho (
opinion of one disinterested friend ere lie ap- :
proached me as such.
"Accuse me not of presumption," he con-,
tinned, "if 1 own confidence in the success of I
my stratagem and forgive the pain I may have !
caused youNvhile calculating upon my careful
avoidance of it in future. Your mind has been j
aroused to serious thoughts of lifo. Accept:
me as a guide in developing the mysteries of i
your being, and thereby fitting you for tho pait !
you were destined to perform in life."
The warmth of iny gratitude, most enthusi- j
astically expressed, induced still stronger avow- J
als on his part, and at last ended in the most i
fervent and passionato declaration of love that
ever came from mortal lips.
Need I own that 1 was supremely happy for
the first time? A weight was removed from
my soul. I saw before me a bright future.—
Led on by the guiding hand of love, I might
yet soar to the attainment of my imagined
bliss, prove a ministering angel to a pure and
lofty being, and taste the joys of homo in a
paradise of my heart's own choosing. Domes
tic happiness had ever been the dream of my
fondest cherishing; and now all was to be real
ized; and despair was to give place to the
height of mortal felicity. Oh, the intoxicating
delight of thit one hour of heartfelt commu
nion. It was the awakening of the soul from
the long ami IfcarfVil enilirulilienls of mysillloci
nature to the simple and truthful realities of
life, for a tie was now formed that knit me in
the closest sympathy with my kind.
I returned to the revellers a changed being,
mingled in their light mirth, and diffused over
all the conscious joy of my own bosom. Many
were the looks of surprise turned upon nio, for
never had tho power of my mind nor the ardor
of rny feelings been manifest before. I succeed
ed well in making all participate iri my de
It was the that such an assemblage
was to be gathered round me, in my own home,
for I bad promised Tracey that henceforward,
I would confine myself to more rational pur
suits. But love had aroused vanity, and 1
wished to show him the full extent of the fas
cinating powers that were hereafter to bo de- ,
voted to his happiness alone.
The revellers had departed. The lights were
all extinguished with the exception of the soli
tary ono that still burned in my chamber.—
Mine alone was tho bliss too wild for repose.—
Love, boundless, passionato, all-absorbing love,
had been won from the noble, the gifted and j
the true, and no doubt or fear marred tho hap
piness of its possessor. The clouds, the mist,
that had hitherto surrounded me, tho wand of
the enchanter had dispersed; and clear and bril
liant was the sunshine that threw its beams
upon the future.
Grateful for tho present, and determining to
make every effort towards tho attainment of
that perfection which alone could fit me for
equality of association with tho superior being I
was soon to be allied to—what had 1 to fear?—
Was not love like mine, a guarantee against |
all the ills of fate? Fatigue, excitement, and
its consequent exhaustion, produced, at last,
the slumber I would fain have avoided, and the
dreams which visited me harmonized with the
ecstacy of my waking thoughts. I awoke,
changed in character and feeling, restor
ed, as it wero, to the freedom of mind and
soul, happy in the prido of feeling myself a
part, however small, of the lovely and the good
that surrounded me in nature.
The realities of lifo were no longer distaste
ful to mo. Poetic feelings were unlocked and
poured foith to gladden and to charm all
things to my mind and [to my sense. It
seemed as if it had will, power, strength mighty
enough to alleviate the woes of all who came
within tho sphere of my influence. Of the se
curity of iny own happy lot, I had not the least
When Tracey appeared, at tho appointed
hour, on the following morning, ho found me
waiting for him in the late banquetting hall,
seated upon the same divan, where his first
words of sympathy had fallen upon my ear.—
Ho was astonished at the change so short a
time had made in my appearance. Like Pyg
malion's statue, I had started into life, at the
first touch of genial love; and the glow of ar
dent and enthusiastic hope mantled my whole
being. There wanted but the full exercise of
his matchless eloquence, in tho display of the
varied knowledge he possessed, to stretch to
their utmost tension the cords that bound me!
And, this morning, he surpassed himself. And
what was more gratifying to my woman's va
nity, ho talked to me as one who could tho
roughly understand and appreciate all that was
lofty in his own thoughts and feelings.
1 who never had been flattered by the hom
age of the crowd, was, at last, made happy by
the devotion of one.
Tracey, from this timo visited mo daily for a
yoar, and seemed to livo lor my happiness.—
llut some how or other, I began to feel restless
and dissatisfied. A doubt, a fear had crept in
to my mind. Love was most always the tbcine
of our conversation, but it was" ideal love,
something that excited the imagination, with
out inspiring the hope of its ever being realized
on earth. I began to think it straifgo that
Tracey did not urge our marriage. Ho once
spoke of it as a matter of course, but never
mentioned a wish to have things brought to
such a termination.
Mrs. Thornton, the friend who resided with
ine, spoke seriously to me on the subject, and
even hinted that she thought I was allowing
myself to be trifled with. She blamed the ex
actions and unreasonableness of my lover in
desiring nie to seclude myself from all society,
[ and said tlmt he gave evidence of selfishness
: that no woman of spirit would submit to bc
i fore marriage.
Perplexed by what she said, and filled with
the most painful doubts of my own, 1 resolved
to communicate with a friend, and wrote to
Kate Hammond, a niece of Mrs. Thornton's,
with whom I had boon very intimate, inviting
her to spend some time with me. She came,
as if by accident, greatly to Tracey's annoy
ance, for Kate was a lively girl, and created
more excitement in the house than lie liked.—
Sho drew me into society, and he actually
hated the sweet girl for it, and sought to pre
judice rne against her. By this littleness he
appeared, for the first time, unainiahle to nie,
and caused a constraint of manner, on uiv
pait, which excited in him a frenzy of jealousy;
for he attributed the effects of his own miscon
duct to my partiality for Edward Hammond.—
I submitted with patience, and he assured me
that if 1 intended to persist in my folly he
would leave me to the friends L preferred to
He left me in anger, and I saw no more of
liiin for some days I suffered deeply during
his absence, but was cold and dignified, for 1
felt that lie whom I idolized had lowered him
self in my esteem.
When he next came he looked pale and de
jected, and informed mo that he had been ill.
My heart softened, and taking his hand and
pressing it to my lips, I said, "Tracey, dear
Tracey, in this wide universe 1 love only you.
Let us be all in all to each other, 1 wish never
to part fiom you, I know that you love me, or
I could not make this avowal."
"More than I do heaven and earth," he ex
claimed. "Oil, that I could make any sacrifice
to convince you of it; but it cannot be, and all
that I have done will, one day, in your eyes
speak my condemnation. Emma! would you
make one sacrifice, that the world would not
approve of, for tho man who idolizes you?"
"Yes, yes, dear Henry, any that you would
ask of your affianced wife."
"Then, give up the friends who now sur
round you and live only for me. I have aban
doned all this world for you, and now, on iny
knees, I implore that you will grant me this
one request. If you do not, I swear, as much
as I love you, 1 will never see you again."
He was desperate. I feared that he would
keep his resolve, and promised all that he wish
ed. But haw was I to do without Mrs. Thorn
ton? She was invited to come and stay with
me as long as I remained unmarried, and was
almost literally dependent on inc. Besides, I
must have female protection.
All this he immediately overruled. I might
settle an annuity upon her, and purchase a
house and furnish it for her in a mariner that
would enable her to introduce her niece into
society as she wished, and might allege as an
excuse that 1 did not wish gaiety and preferred
living alone. At the same time he assured mo
that if I did not go into society, 1 would be suf
ficiently protected by my housekeeper and my
My curiosity was excited. I wished to
know the meaning of all this, and promised to
do all. The arrangements were soon made. 1
gave up rny residence in town to my friends,
and retired to a pretty country residence a few
miles oft'. Tracey visited me every day.

" LATER FROM TEXAS. An arrival at N. Or
leans brings advices from Galveston to the 30th
ult. There is no news of importance:
Judge Terrel is spokon of as about to receive
the appointment of Minister to England from
Texas; and Mr. Riley, of Houston, that of
Minister to the United Stales. A gentleman
of integrity in Galveston has received a letter
from a highly rcspoctable source in Mexico,
who states there will be no invasion of Texas
this year, and that the citizens of Texas can
depend upon what he says to be true.
Benjamin Franklin Love, of Matagorda co.,
was murdered on the 15th ult., by Mr. Jamos
Mr. David S. Richardson was murdered in
his residence on the San Antonio river, Refu
gio co., about the middle of last month. He was

Gonzales, stating that a paity of about 50 In
dians were in the neighborhood of the latter
place, committing depredations, and had killed
and scalped a Mr. John Berrimcngi. Tho Dis
trict Court was in session at Gonzales when
this intelligence was received, hut the grand
jury immediately dismissed themselves, and
started off with about forty others in pursuit of
the Indians, with what success had not been
learned. Tho Indians are said to bo Caman
MINSTRALST AND Music. Wo would notify
our District readers that they may look out for
something new in the line of Etliiopcan music,
during the early part of next week. A musical
association, possossing much ability, intend
giving a series of concerts, at tho Apollo Hull)
to commence on Monday evening next.
JAMAICA. Jamaica dates to the 2d ult. have
boen received. The elections for a Colonial
Parliament had resulted in the return of the old
members with a few exceptions. An earth

[For the American Republican ]
Messrs. Editors: —lf I understand the princi
ples of the party you advocate, it is your sim
ple aim so to extend the timo requisite for na- i
turalization, as of necessity to effect a transtbr l
of feeling and of interest from the land of
their birth to the land of their adoption, leav
ing the rights of conscience, and all other in
terests, in the same position they are now in.
If this is so, I am with you heart and soul.
Such a change is urgently demanded. Until
such a change is effected our country is in jeo
pardy. At this time, the foreign vote may be
given to the democracy. Under a different
state of things, in time ot war for instance, tlnat
vote may he given for measures subversive of
our liberties. Tlio change you advocate is
reasonable; the spirit of patriotism demands it.
Lot the work of organization go on. One
word more arid I have done. As divers por
sons have been mentioned for thn next Presi
dent, let me say, I deem the Hon. Silas IVright,
of New York, as the man best fitted for the
station and most likely to succeed. Distin
guished alike for his abilities as u statesman, for
republican simplicity, and fascinating social
qualities, his success would be certain. But I
agree with-you, I will not vote for any man
who will not favor an extension of tho natu
ralization laws of our country.
