Sewn of the Week.
We arc in a^tate of war? not a physical, but a com*
mercial war. It is not a war in which men arc killed
? bin systems, principle* anil modes of business are
ciianged, altered, or renovated.
The week that has just passed has been eventful ?
both at home and abroad.
Our intelligence from England and France pos
^sesst's the deepest interest for us iu this country. The
commercial revolution is sweeping over those coun
tries with vengeance ? but particularly in Eng'and.
At the Inst accounts, her banking and manufacturing
systems were on the verge of a great explosion, in
conseqa <nc of the extraordinary developements made
of tho condition of the American trade. In politics,
every thing was quiet, but if th o commercial troubles
increase-, the activity of political feeling would also in
crease. The government is quiet ? apparently march
ing along in the old pace which it received in 1888,
when (fee revolution man a of 16-10 subsided into a
settled system. Th ? effeot of a sudden disorganiza
tion in the commercial allairs of England would be
the signal for an entire change in her political system.
That, again, would aSect the action of public opinion
in France. An<f thus are the civilized communities
connected together.
From France we have very little political news of
r any importance. Louis Philippe ie not yet assassina
ted, although three or four attempts have been made.
It is h'ghly probable that the spirit will not abate. ?
The high morbid feeling developed in France in rela
tion to politics, hat? prevailed on former occasions
among that singularly original people. Who can for
get the terrible contests between the Catholics and
Huguenots in the fifteenth century 1 In those days
political feeling produced the same mania for assassi
nation which we see now. Ravaillac only was more
successful than Alibaud or his associates. There are
two principles nt war in the public mind in France?
the legitimate and the representative principle. The
contest will bo prolonged till some one attains the
mastery. Till then we may expect attempts upon the
life of the king, as well as popular cmcuies in the capi
tal and provincial towns.
In Prance, trade is dull, but the revulsion is very
feeble compared to th ? reaction in England. France
since the era of the republic has traded principally
on a specie capital. They deal in little paper
and trust less to it. The merchants of France
in a body cann it break, nor can their banks stop spe
cie payment. Why ! Because the former ar? cau
tious and sel.lom trade on borrowed capital? tho latter
do not ex int, except one, the Bank of France which
is no monste and has few bii* claws.
From the other sections of F.uropo we have noth
ing new. The Popeof Rome is probably embroider- ,
ing petticoats for the blessed virgin ? Nicholas of
UuMia reviewing lus army ? Christina of Spain re
viewing her lovers ? the rest asleep ? except >Iah
tnou i, who is now the only sensible man in Europe
that wears a crown, though only a barbarian of a
modern breed.
We have little nrv> * from South America. Mexico
and Texn? appear tobeao ?h*y were ? scarcely know
ing what to do, or when to fight eacn
But the news in our own land is the most mpert
ont. During the we-k a most original philosophical
discovery has been made, which developes a new
principle in the order of nature entirely. In another
part of our paper will be found a scientific description
of this phenomenon, from the pen of Professor Silli- |
man of New Haven. We have also added several
popular descrptions of the new principle and its ap
plicability to all the arts of life.
We d. sire our readers particularly to read and study
the account of the electro-magnetic machine.
From Washington and Albany we have nothing
new. In relation to the present state sf commercial
affairs, matters have taken and are taking a more
gloomy direction. A large and excited meeting has
been held in the Masonic Hall? a committee of fifty
appointed to go to Washington ? but it is doubtful i
whether on. half will go, in consequence of the dread i
that the sheriff* of other states might he called into i
requisition. It is not believed that Mr. Van Buren
will act at all on the subject of the specie circular.
Even his friends here begin to think him a poor mise
rable creature, without a spark of moral courage suffi
cient to give him an impulse to fallow his own better
Another meeting is preparing to be held in the
Park, ?n Wednesday next, and it is probable that we *
shall have a few meetings too many before the sum
iner shall have elapsed.
TUo Legislature has proposed toadjonrn at an early
day. Hiiwe the 1st of Jsnuary this venerable body
has been in session, working all the time, yet they ]
have no! finished a single bill of consequence during
the whole period. They have, made reports on every j
Hjbject and on every side of every subject. I hey have j
debated the whole session on banks and the currency.
But they have done nothing -passed nothing ? and
ere nothing.

A Prixe Tale.
When Henry Landon was twenty-five, Caroline
Wilton was a wild, lively girl, of twelve years u>(agu.
She had a brilliant complexion, and a pair of spark
ling black eyes, full of fire and intelligeneei and when
she laughed with all the glad feelings, and unchecked
spirits of 'happy childhood, her white and even teuth
farm i d a most ruby contrast with her ruby lips. Free
from care, aiul blest iw the affection and indul?cn e of
hoi parents, she felt no envy towards those who were
raised above hvr by the mere caprice of fortune. . V ain
of her personal appearance, and knowing nothing
but that she was handsome, she was perfectly satisfied
with herself ? and, had she been left alone with Iter
i?iK>rrm<v and iter beauty, slie might have missed a
lew fleeting moments of exquisite and refill d enjoy
ment, ami escaped alter years of misery and repent
Young as she was, it was her fate to attract the ad
miration and attention of Henry Landon, an elegant
and accomplished man of fashion. itli fine tab nts,
a liberal education, and a heart alive to every senti
ment of virtue and generosity, was still eccentric, and
possessed a mind strongly tinctured with romance. ?
rli-i walk in lite was far above th it 01 Mr. Wilton,
the father of Caroline ? but that was, in Ins opinion,
the circumstance (if accident, and neither detracted
from the merit of Wilton nor added to las own.
Landon had just arrived at the age when the society of
a ?' ntk man is most s night by the ladies ? when a man
is calculated to be most agreeable, most'ardent, most
generous, m >st confiding, when the flashing sparks of
genius m a youthful mind shines forth with the greatest
brilliancy ? and ere the best feelings of the heart have
been wrapped by the coldness and treachery, and sel
fishness of the world. Many a biighteyefell bent ath
his glance, and followed his rcc ding form with looks
of admiration ? and many a sweet smile met his ap
proach, and threw a light on the blush occasioned by
a passing compliment from his lips. It was in vain ?
Ins heart was invulnerable? or rather it was long
thought so? yet i* was at last surrendered to a child.
Caroline Wilton, lie fondly thought, might be formed
into the very creature of his imagination; and when
once tiiis idea had taken possession of his mind, he
could si.e no beauty, no attraction, in any other being.
With a fortune not only independent, but sufficient to
gratify every whim of his enthusiastic and romantic
disposition, he determined to educate her for his wife ?
to bend her young and pliant thoughts te those pur
suits which he most loved and most admired ? to give
her n .turally gifted mind the highest polish of cult] va
l tion and i mprovement? and then, to claim her sensi
tive and greatful heart as his reward.
A proposal so advantageous, an alliance so flatter
ing, could not fail to meet the approbation of her pa
rent.-, and was soon communicated to the gay and
youthful Caroline. She listened silently and atten
tively, as if endeavoring to comprehend all that she
was expected to perform ; and then, turning to Lan
don with all the candor and riaitcttc of her happy
disposition, she suddenly exclaimed, "Mr. Lanuon,
are you sure you will like me, after you have spent so
much m mey, and 1 have learned all that you wish me
to be taught T'
" Certainly, my deir, replied he; "but why do you
ask such a question V'
" Because, I am not certain that 1 shall like you as
well, when you get to be so much older."
Landon was forcibly struck with the answer. It
was th* simple reflection wf a child of nature, and a
deep shade of thought passod over his brow." ?' It is
a wild ache me," sighed lie to himself- ? " 1 have em
barked on a sea of experiment, in which not only my
own happiness, but that of another, is involved; and
there are moments, when 1 fear that I am only laying
up sorrow for an innocent and lovely girl, and bitter
disappointment tor myself ? yet a few years," thought
he, as lie accidentally saw his fine form and han.lsouiH
face reflected in an oppsiite mirror, "cannot niter me
so much as to preclude all hope of my gaining a
yotuii' la?ly '? uflt ciIwm*."
Caroline's quick eye saw t lie etiitiM i?
nance, an. I with an intuitive sense of giving pain, or
creating displeasure, she said, inn toneof earnestness,
and with the most at tlcss manner, "Mr. Landon, 1
always sav anything that-coines in my head to papa,
and he only laughs at me ? I dare say I shall love you
when I am grown up; for 1 love papa now, and he is
a great deaf older than I am."
" !-'ut why cannot you loveuic before you are grown
up, Caroline ?"
"O, because, I can't love ( very body at once. Vou
are very good to me, and I will try to like you as well
as I can ?but you arc not a bit like Kdgnr Morris, and
1 can't help liking him the beat ? for be brings mt
flower*, and turn* the rope for me to jump, and climbs
tlie trees after fruit, and does every tlung 1 want him
to do."
Landon smile I? yet he went away frent the house
of Mr. Wilton less sanguine as to the result of h.s plan
than he had entered it.
Kdgar Morris was the son of a neighboring g? ntle
man of small fortune, who contrived to live gein<rly,
and even w ith an a r of elegance, on a very mod 'rate
income. lie was two years older than Caroline, and
had been her playmate front infancy; and her words
were literally true, that he would do every thing she
w anted hiui t? do. They were attached to each other
as brother and sister, but were both too young to
know of any other kind of love; nnd ere a uluhiish
.ion had time to ripen into adiepvr and more
absorbing feeling, they were separated by the new
destiny ami employments of Caroline.
Six years hail passed away hi a constant and often
fatiguing round of studies, and the beautiful, spoiled,
ami ignorant child, was iiietninorphised into the
lovely, polished, and accomplished woman. These
who had known ( 'aroline Wilton ai twelve years of
age, could scarcely have recognised her at eighteen.
An intellectual exprc-sion of countenance had added
a surpassing charm to her native beauty ? her step bad
liecome graceful and elegant, instead of springing w th
the wild, elastic bound of early days, and Iicr imsd
had received and retained the fair impression of virtue,
refinement, and delicacy.
Landon was her constant friend and adviser and
not onlv the director of her studies, but of her teach
ers. He saw the change which her mind w as gradu
ally working, and watched its progress with delight :
and loved her better for being himself the means of
making her what she w as.
Iter feedings toward hnn were of a nature nltoget lw r
different from common. She look' d up to him as her
benefactor and her beit friend; nnd she gave hint her
lea tin fall confidence of his worth and nobleness,
and with the deepest sentiments of gratitude. and es
teem. Her love had none of that romantic fervor
w hich chnraeterial-d his attach mi nt to her, but it w as
pure, and true, and steady, nnd really capable of great
sacrifices, while, through pride and folly, it refused a
trifling one.
Landon loved with an all-engrossing passion? jret
he knew that the beautiful object of his idolatry w as
not quite perfect. With an amiable disposition, she
1 1 ad a spirit that would I Ot brook control, nor bend to
aught but her own senss of right nnd wrong. Hut
neither was he hunself without Ins faults. His tem
|ier w ns often hasty, and sometimes difficult ; and his
ideas of propriety in others went carried somewhat u*>
far for a world w her# much must be overlooked, and
much forgiven.
( 'nrolinc was not generally fond of amusements,
nor of attending public places; lull for once she had
set her heart on going to a masquerade in a neighbor
ing c ity. A little doubtful of the approval of her frienel
shedetcrmincel to mention it to him, and ask his advice}
y< t resolve*! at the same time not to be guided by it,
should he prohibit her gratifying what she considered
an innocent curiosity. He came a? usual in flie even
ing to p4y hie accustomed Visit, and sheb<gnn by
playing and singing his favorite tunes in order to
sooth every dise*ordant feel ng, and prepare hifi to
irant her request. Animated w ith the thought of no
velty and pleasure, she was all fsnyet j and good bu
rn jr, and her young henrt antiemau-d nothing but
happiness in the years te come; but her lover was
uniiaually grave and thoughtful and when the music
ceased, to which he had seemed to listen as if it had
been for the last time, the siUn<.e might have remain
ed long unbroken, but fer her.
Landon, said rtiit', with t he familiar voice and
marinorof a privileged favorite, "will you go with
rne to the masquerade next week .'"
I .andon liad been thinking of the tnasqueraele, which,
a- a novelty, had occasioned much conversation
among the gay and fashionable, and many of his
friends were prepared to throw ofl' their natural char
ters tor the time, and sustain or fail in soni 'Other, it
was a species ot amusement, that, in his opinion,
was calculated to produce pernicious consequences; |
and lie had determined, in his own mind, neither to 1
go Inmscll, nor to sutl r Caroline to j >in the parly.
Ma'.meradesare dangerous places, my dear ( :'nro- I
line, said he, in reply to hei question, "and 1 shall
be sorty to see you there ; but you are not m nous, I
know ? you cannot really think of going."
' Indeed, 1 am very serious," replied the lively
girl, wit h one ot those smiles which had ofu u beguiled
1 nil of his betler judgment ? "1 not only tliink of
going, but intend to go ; and if you arc afraid to trust
me with Miss Sinclair and Colonel Orahum, why
you must absolutely go with m< vourscli'. Come now,
don t look angry, and sentiim ritnl, and - ? much
wiser than every body else. Where the impropri -
ty? I can see nothing wrong iri it.'
He was not in th .? humor for trifling, and Caroline
spoke without her usual tact.
"It would be useless for me to point ou; the im
propriety," said he, in a surprised and l itLei an of
fended tone, "if you are resolve. I, at all events, on
L'oing. indeed, it would be only causiug you to
disoblige me under aggravated circumstances. 1
should have scarcely believed that .von, Caroline,
would have ventured to decide on* any tiling of
consequence, without first consulting me, mid pay
ing some little deference to my feelings an : opinions
? i>ut I have perhaps over-rated myelinic on your
gratitude and observance of my wishes."
The last words were spoken sarcastically, and had
their full effect. Caroline's Ufty spirit tlislied from
her eyes, but she was silent; and, for the first time,
the we ght of her obligations tol.and-jn pn *>ed lieav y
on her heart. Thi y were both to blame, and both f, |t
and th aught wrongly, yet neither wouid c^ndec'centi
to make the first concession to the other. Caroline
did not apeak again, and L-indon ros ? to t ike ie.i.e.
lie approach d her anil took her hand ? *
'?you will think lietter of your resolution, Caro ,
line," said he, with a softer manner?"! am sure,
after all, that you will not lose a friend for tin1 sake
of the world and its votaries. The time litis now
come, when you must either givt up the world for me,
or me for the world. Let your own ..cart choose
between the two."
Htjd he stopped there, he would iiavc gained the
victory, but he proceeded ?
"If you persist in your determination of going to
the masquerade, we part, from that tune f?r ever."
"Then farewell," saidCaroline, with n sudden emo
tion of pride and anger ? and thus, ni one hn-Uy mo
ment, she broke the band of years, and by a single
folly, estranged a noble heart. Shu stwod lor some
time on the *,iot where he had left her, and thi n bur.-t
into tears. "Oh!" said she to herself, "how foolish,
how ungrateful, 1 have b. en!? but I cannot recall my
words? I have voluntarily thrown away mv happi
ness? and for what 7 To appear for one ev?nmg in
a fictitious character at a inasq lerade. I! ? it so then,"
continued she mournfully, yn proudly? ' 1 shall us
sutui a new, if not a false character, tor th :< t ofmr
life." 3
The masquerade was over? and Carolin* returned,
weary, and wretched, to her lather'.- ho ise. j'he
pleasure she had anticipated wa# all , n.-al; bi.t th
misery and remorse winch succeeded, wer. a el and
lasting reality. I. andon came not to welcome her
return, and solitude was too irksome ? ? b bme ?
.She tit into society, and put on a ma?l; of lmi v,
to hide the canker worm of disappointment, which
was sceirily preymn o.i b< r hear'., an., in. rtu.n.n;
her health and sp rits. *
Humor, with her hundred tongiu suon.-pread the
r port, that M ss Wilton hud <!:-? ar<!i-d h< , i,ol.V and
generous I over and many others crowd* <1 round In r to
supply Ins pluee, hut she wa< cold ami ?!i -Mm t.nll,
till she heard that Landon was going to |>< married!
Too hastily belie ving a story that was fabricated only
to deceive tier, she waited not its complt ?ion, I tit in a
moment of prid ? and resentment, almost <?/ de'irium,
?he gave her hand to one whose artluj persuasions had
chiefly induced her to commit her first great folly, of
throwing off the guiding care of her * arly friend and
benefactor. Hut she knew not herself w hVn she made
the solemn vow to love and honor another She
knew not the strength of her attauhnient to I. an Ion
till she had severed, with her ow n hind, tin* Ins* rv
maisinghnk between herself and hun, and found, too
lute, that her heart could not thus be forcibly turn
away from the only one to whom it had ever b en
freely and fully given.
It was iess than a year from the t me of the mas
querade, that the public papers aiinounc* d ih< mar
riage of Col. (?raham wnh the beautiful and accom
plished Caroline Wilton, and from licit hmr the dis
appointed and disgusted I, andon fori?v\ -r> all in * r
, course with tho female sex.
< iraham had win e been among the number of his
friends; but he w.is the man o, all others, w1?om he
would have warned her to avoid, llaridson.it <mditi
smua ting in his manners, and apparently nil thru wtn
good and amiable; he was, m reality, s- Ifish, design
ing and tyrannical, andaltogetheriwapnlileof loving.
Vanity was bis ruling passion? and vanity, once
gratified, becomes a cold and hearth feeling t .wards
its object.
Caroline had lost her mother; and ier father,
though indulgent, even t? a fault ems a man o! busi
ness, asd too much occupied with the affair* of the
world, to think much of those of the heart. He had
been led to believe thnt Mr. Landon and his danghti r
had broken their engagement to each other by
mutual consent, ami (hough excee Imglv mortified
expected a termination of t c projected alliance,
he said little on the subject; and, when Caroline
assured him that it was her choice to marry Col.
<?raham, he kindly told her to consult her ??w ii hap
piness, and act according to her wishes. He did
not live to witness the trials and vici-si tid ?? ?.f her
future life; and she rqoiced in the midst of her s??r
rows, that be was spared t^ic pang uf knowing that
sh* had s?nled her own misery, by h r hasty unioo.
The flowers of three summers had bloomed and
faded since the fatal barrier had been plaeed between
Landon and his love; and time had worn out the
first bitterness of feeling, and destroyed much of Ins
resentment towards Caroline. Hu began to judge
calmly and rationally uf the past, ami rcknowlcdge
to his own heart that he had be? n greatly to blame
It wasthehlind impetuosity of his own disposition,
which 1 1 ad dictated his last words to her, and pro
voked the proud reply which had separated them for
ever He felt that he should not have utterly forsaken
her for a single folly. S? young, so beautiful, so full
?if joyous stunts, and so free from the world's ^nile,
how could lie thus abandon her ?
She bad left her native place, vn.l gone with her bus
band he knew not w ither He ma I n . inquiries con
cerning her fate, and his friends never m< ntioned her
name in Ins presence. Indeed, ho kept up hut little in*
ter< ou rse with those w ho knew htm He either spent
his time in travelling or seelnded himself w ?h<n lit*
own wslis ; and th?* oace br.il, int. fascinating and
elegant Landen, seemed cksngwd to the tworo and
gloomy recluse.
He hail been wandering through the eoantry du
ring the sumnur months. impelled by a r< ?t!e*? -f<,rii
that haunted him incessantly; and mom of his . \
enrsi *ns he missed his w ay, and foun<4 hi ? , !f, late in
the evening, apparently in an unfrrqnenttd place, arid
probably far frmrn any habitation ; but afi. r riding on
rapidly for hal an hour, and sidWing his horse to take
ins own course, he discovered a light, and turned to
ward it. As be approached, he found it < aine from a
small cottage surrounded with shrubbery; ami dis
mounting, be walked slow ly and eautio'isly on, tilt
within a few yards of the window, w h( nee it issueil.
It was a still ? veiling m t',?e inonfh of June, and the
moon was just rising in a cloudlets skv. I indon
stopped for a momen'., and cont< mplst- the scene
with an indsecribaVt* feeling ?if imlanrii^iy. Sud

! and a youthful female, dn;-ed in black, appeared to
I be the only inmate of tin apurtmi nt. Landon was ;
concealed from \ iew by the shrubbery, and gazed j
with an intensity of tcrl.ug which absorbed every j
thought. The lady nus- I In r Imnd to her forehead,
and walked from the easement. He could not be '
mistaken- ? it wan surely th** step, the figure of Caro- )
line Wilton ? and as she turned again the light fell on
lit r lace, and reniowd the h i?t shadow of doubt ? |
^ i it was indeed she ! . u t oh! how chnnged from
the blooming beauty oi other days, Consumption !
and sorrow were fast p rfonning trn ir work of death !
?and her .0114 eci nied pruplutic of bcr early doom.
The roses had lad d from Ii r cheeks, and her eyes j
litnl lost their once jo} f;;l expixs on but nothing I
could dispel the charm \\ liich the ^-oul of virtue and
intelligence diffused over !ier lonely countenance.
I .audtfii rushed forward, an ! would have forced hiiu

" -ii ? is married !" ? and lie turned hastily away. ?
" Ungrateful, misguided Caroline," sn.?| he to himself, |
" why Iium thou again crosst d my vi w ! It is not for 1
me to sooth thy ebrrow now and the husband thou

These thoughts nerved him to <|iut the spot, anil
discovering a In at. ti trui 1%, he putMied las way, and
soon found a she lit- r lor t i 1 ?- night. The 11 xt morning
he th parted, without nskt:i;.r a single question uon
eet tiiug the cottage or its inhabitants ; but the memo
ry of that pale face an I wasted form, haunted him
w herever ho went.
Siuiimer hid glided away, and the falling leaves of
autumn cast a aei per gloom ovi r his mind. In the
romance and eccentricity of hi* deposition, he had
buried all his painful though s and feel ag* in lus own
bosom, but tlu.y tecanu at It ugth too bitter to be
borne, and he d. t< r mind secretly to pevisit the lone
ly cottage.
livening again cast her sh.-i own on the surround
in-- objects, utid a dim light slione faintly from the
same casement win low. L in Ion reached, unobserv
ed, the very spot v. Ii re lie ha i last stood ; and what
wt r? his sensations to hear main the notes of music !
It was a voice of sorrow, mid He<-tn< d 11 requiem over
the dead. Wildly and solemnly it floated on the au
tumn blast ? and the words w hicli 11 on his < ar, har
rowed his soul with anguish.

The strain c? a -e I. and sobs w. re heard audibly 111
pla'i o| th?' music. Landon wa much aflrcled, and
as h<t had once known Kllel Sinclair, the bosom
fru 10! of Caro ine, 111 the days of her happiness, he
entered the apartment when she was ?i;t ti", by the
reitiains of her youti nil e tnpan<OH.
Lllea started at his well-reiiicailwred form, and
then, with a lo?ik of oldness, haughtily said, " ^"ou
have come to i late, Mr. Landon. Why do you in
trude at su h a m imrnt Would you take a In -<t look
at those still, cold features, hi au til ul 1 ven in death I
hutwh! tlie?f?irit is not there."
Landon -yoke nut. but tinned to ihw betl, and knelt
by the si I <if h - tl prirti d love. Long did ho gate m
Silenec? till ?tt length, in n Voice choked with
strong emotion, lie exclaimed, "Slup on, beloved
Caroline ! -S|,.-j, on, 11 thy calm, unbroken n si !?

panisbsd for toy presumption and van ty. Thou art
gone! and this work of death is all the cfk-et of one
sniffle f?lly in me."
'flu heart stricken mourner rose from his kn?es
ami left tin; room | and it ?a< many wit Xs after tl e
rurf had been laid on th* wravr of Caroline, #-n in
could bring himself to impure the particulars of her
history since her mrvriagf .
Her tale was a coirtmon one. It win the story of

of life, w ith injured feelings, w ith red affections, and
blightu)! hopes.
She b ft u |rw lines for Landon written just before
her death. They were as follow -
'? To my early beiM-i ictor, I would devote a few of
the remaining moments of my life They must, in
deed, be few, for 1 b that I am dying. Ten years
