All human beimrs must biifler piin and sorrow ;
but on woman do the evils incident to human exis
tence fnll with peculiar fiirce. Her heart U sensi
tive, and her spirits are eni-ily elated or depres-ed :
the delicacy or her nervous system subjects her to
agitations to which man, favoured by greater phys
ical strength and more firmness of nerve, is exempt.
Subject to caprice, elio need the balance of intel
lectual dirciplmo ; nnd, above all, docs she require
tin- aid or religions prinriplea to enable her to over
come the weaknes? to which her minJ, owiti',' to a
peculiar physical organization, it subject. ib.

A law in Massachusetts, ndopted in the year

address a young woman without the consent ofher
parents, or n case of their absence, he should pay
the tine of JC 1 for the first offence, 10 for tho
second, and be imprisoned Tor the third. Thus in

ing very singuttir paragripli lippi'ars in Mr Har

the loi of tho Forlifieation Ji'l :
"In t luc iipproochinc flecljni tho world will bear
wittiest that Kentucky, ninogst her oilier great

that one of hor sons in whom she i-i well ple.ised,

candidate for Vice Preridunt ; ho has iilso won his
fame in deeds of noble during ; but ho mus.1 recol
lect tint if a man marries a iviumn below him in
the grades of society, he elevates her lo his level;
if above him, he brings her down to his own raste.
So is the fate of thu cancidate fur Vice Presi
dent." In the same speech also appears this very ingu
Lit paragraph :
"When Ihe war is rag-ing in Florida with all its
horrors, and in its inosl frightful forms, nnd He ure
in daily expectation of i war with Fnince, what do

llecauso promotion to odicu does not now depend
on merit, bul by bowing, fawning, and cringing in
tho palace; for all power is there. When tho

Speaking of Mr. John (1. Adams, Mr. Hardin
"When I recollect how, in lo-i, in mo coniesi
