YES, let the mTer count his gold,
And toil and fcrape to fwell the heap ;
Say, can thfc heart that's winter cold,
Of wealth and fruitful pleafurcs reap ?
Say, can the foal, iu feIf that's wrapt.
The blifi of pure enjoyment talk ?
Ah no ! when feeling’s chain is faapt,
How void the heart, how dre^r the waftc !
"NYas it for this poor creeping thing !

I hat nature gave thee power to wing,
T he piercing thought, and read her page ?
l)oes flie near whifper in thy dream,
“The wretch who loves himfelf alone,
u Can never drink of rapturous ftreara,
“ Of canfeious warm exifience own.”
The fweetest joys which health can give
i'o light pale want’s lack-luftre eye.
And aid the toil worn mind to live,
Are joys which thou can’ft never buy.
Then count thy hoards of fliining gold:
And toil and lcr.-pe and fwell the heap;
T t.e heart like thine,that’s winter cold,
No fruits of wealth can ever reap !
Oh ! git e to me fweet nature’s right,

And th- warm throb of foft delight
That thnls the foul of fympathy.
Give me, oh, Heaven ! the power to heal
The wounded foul of finking woe ;
Give me the bofom quick to feel.

And reft ray head on Julia’s breaft ;
To chafe the tear, from Julia’s eye,
Then let the mifer take the reft !

Dear Sir—Of Col. Lyon’s “plan*" I
know nothing—I will tell you the truth but
not the whole truth about certain “ defigns

to Pe nl'ylvania is but a fraction more than

tliis airetl the fmall flatcs ? It will render
the fenators kfs independent and in time
the mere tools of the large ilates.Something
of this kind is already difcoverable. A re
; publican of diftindtion has been heard to
fay that Virginia might as well fend 4 Sen
ators and Rhode Lland none as for each
to fend two. 2, Limit the office of 2 judge
to five years. This needs no comment.
I fhall always be devoted to the caufe of
liberty .* but I am decidedly of opinion that
the union of the vail territory and heteroge
! neovs population of our country cannot be
' preferved under a fyftem lefs energetic than
' the prefent conftitution. The moment
• when we have added a world to nur empire
is a very improper one to l'eize for the pur
pofe of rendering our government almoil a
perfect democracy. Yet fuch views arc en

The nomination of Gov Clinton was
j made in fecTet conclave by four or five
members a great while ago. It is a part of
the well known Virginia plan always to
give us a president from that date.
Col. Rurr, has many refpedlable friends
in both l.oufes, but it was necefihry to fet
him ande for the prefent. Virginia com
manded and it was done.
I am Sir,

Y’our friend and humble fervant,

experienced much difficulty in voting for
the impeachment of judge Chafe — We

articles, aS they will charge him with ten

Ir» my lift I intimated that the Rhnd-If
and Senators were coni'dercd as devoted ro
'he views ot Virginia. I meant no impu
tation cn the character of thofe gentlemen ;
they are upright ; and their coincidence
with Virginia perhaps merely accidental.
It is certain however, that there are ma
ny modes of republican influence and in
trigue. cf which none but thofe, who have
like us “ a view of the whole ground '* can
form an adequate idea.

Dear Sir.—Again is the union of hon
eft men triumphant. The acquittal of the
iupreme court in Pennfyivanu is the fare
harbinger of the downfai of Duane, and
Jacobinifm in that date. Had the judges
been condemned, articles of impeachment
againit governor M’Kcan himfelt were al
ready cut and dried for immediate ufe.
After the molt ftrong and disgraceful
congrelhonal debate ever known of four
days duration on the Georgia claims, the
friends otetrreci principles have prevailed by
a tmaii majority, in the fulled ho ufe we
have had this feflion, ayes 63, noes 58.
hlr. Randolph has delivered feveral phil
1 ip pics mere violent than thole of Robef
| pierre in the b oody times of France. In
return he has been called by republican
fpeakers, an ape, a monkey, i llandcrer, a
: calumniator, a madman, an ambitious po
pular leader, a defpotic demagogue, a popu
lar tyrant, &c. &c. Ue has accufed the
poftm after general of cnry-es and mifde
mcanors, and that officer has demanded an
enquiry into his conduct. I (hall move to
confine the enquiry to the charges exhibited
to Mr Randolph, for I have afeertained
that if it Ihould go t© his whole official con
duct, feJeralifts will unite with the violent
republicans upon the queftion, and he will
moft afluredly be condemned. My fpeech
which will foon be publiihed. exhibits a
clearer view of the Georgia bufinefs than
has before appeared. Col. Lyon obferved
in his fpeech that he was “ grateful to his
God for having given him the face of a
man, and not that ot an ape or a monkey.*
Randolph had called him a Jackall) and*
that “the head of the gentieman from Vir
ginia, was fuller of political projects than
l>on Quixotte’s was of wind-mills, caltles,
dulcineas and all the pomp of knight erran

the wheedling of ivcoohants, or the

Mary %Vo1ftonccrafc was born on the
I 27th of April, 1759. in London, or at a
farm upon Epping foreft. The education
of this extraordinary worm ft was flender,
' and fhe had none ot thofe earlv advantages
which have been the lot of molt women
who have been diftinguifhed i« the literary
world. She was remarkable in early life for
1 vivacity and refolutian, ar nineteen years
! of age lhe lived with a Mrs. Dawfon, at
Bath as a companion, but was obliged to
j leave Mrs. Dawfon, to attend to the wants
' of her dying mother, to whom her behav
j ior apppears to hare been very dutiful.
I After the death of her mother, lhe found
herfelf in narrow circureliances, and wax
anxious to fix upon fomc mode of life to

of her age fhe opened a day fchool at Ifl
rngton, which was toon after transferred to
Ne wington green. She had, for her part
J ner, a young lady, to whom ihe was ftrong
} ly attached, who repaired ro Lilbon for the
j recovery of her health* in purfuanee of the
! advice of a phyfician. This circurr.ftancc
is worthy of notice, for it gave occafion to
. the difplav of that heroic friendlhip, which
lo much diftinguifhed the life and charact
er oi Mrs. Godwin. Hearing that her
friend sfc-as likely to die at Lilbun. iVlrs
Godwin abandoned her fchool, in contempt
of every conlideratiun of intereil. and h iv
ing borrowed a lufHcient fum of moi.ey,
dew to Lifoon to attend the lail wifhes of her
friend. On her return to England, lhe
found her School had fuffered greatly by
her abfence ; fhe therefore entered into the
family of Lord Kingfbnrough, as g vemef*
to his daughters, in which fituation howev
er, tye remained but a ih>rr time. In
' 1787, Ihe fettled in the metropolis, and
had recourfe to her pen for fubfiftence.
Here fhe purfued her literary labors; wrote
iome ot her molt popular proJactions :
The Anfwer to Mr. Burke and the Vindi
cation of the Rights of Women i.^anfl?
ted feveral works, and contributed many
articles to the Analytical Review. In 1792
(lye went to Paris* where fl»e became ac
quainted with Mr. Gilbert 1ml iy, by whom
fhe had a daughter. She had always en
tertained the moil violent prejudice agah.lt
the conditions of European marriages. She
did not think it confident with the nature
of man, for him to cnter*into an indiflolu
bie union. Site did not like thole recipro
cal legal refponfibilities, which take away
the individuality of a&ion and conduft.
Mrs. Godwin, as file frankly acknowledges*
took upon her the duties of marriage without
the ceremony—fhe lived with Mr Irrfiay.
She was now more than 33 years of age.
The connexion did not prove fortunate.
Mr. lmlay difappointed all her hopes, lie
