Small pieces of lead are attached, I understand, to the bottom of the fasrpuinas, which accounts lor the lonion ele gance of its foldings and fail. Amidst the many changes that Spain lias undergone, the woman alone seem unchanged. Lattices, and jealousies, and duennas, and indeed all that used to give love making such a romantic air in this beyond that of any country, have long .mice disappeared ; but the passion itself still constitutes the existence of Span i ;h women. It is not, however, that intriguing kind of love, which we hear of in France, where a lady J changes her love as easily and as often a3 her lover; : but rather devotion to one object, which renders ! them the greatest tyrants in the world, and makes j them expect more adoration than was ever offered 1 .pat anviuf.l’ssliri'’e.-[. IdvcvUtrfT in ’ LOVE IN Tl KCO.MAMA FROM BCfKINCHiM'S TRAVELS ‘ The women of the Turcomans, who are, in general, lair, ruddy, and handsome, neither dis figure themselves by blue stains, nor veil them -l ives, alter the manner of the Arabs. The ! jealousy of the men, regarding their honor, is. however, still stronger. .Mr Maseyk, who, it should he added, is a Dutch merchant of the highest respectability, and has resided at Alep po for forty years, and made journeys through every part of the surrounding country, told no un instance in proof of this, which I should scarcely have believed, if 1 had not heard it from his own mouth. “ Two young persons of the same tribe loved each other, and were betrothed in marriage their passion was open and avowed, and known to .ill their friends, who had consented to their union, and even lived the period lor its eelebra tun. It happened one evening, that they m-t, accidentally, alone, but in sight of all the tents they stopped a moment to speak to each other, and were on the point of passing on, when the brothers of the girl, perceiving it, rushed out, with arms in their hands, to avenge their dis grace. 'I'he young man took to tlight, and es caped with a musket wound; but the poor girl received five halls in her body, besides being mangled by the daggers of her own brothers, who had aimed to plunge them in her heart, and. when she fell, they abandoned her carcase to the dog-! “ 1 he young man gained (he tent ol a power t'ui friend, the chief of another tribe, encamped near them, and told his story ; begging that hi would assist him with ;i troop of horse, to ena ble him to rescue the body of hi.- love from its present degradation, lie went, accompanied by some of his own people, and found life 'til | remaining. He then repaired to the tent of he> enraged brothers, and asked them whv the* had done this .’ They replied, that they could not sufTei their sister to survive the loss of he honor, which had liecn stained by stopping to talk w ith her intended husband, on the publi , road, before her marriage. The lover demand ; rd her body' for burial; when her brothers, sus ! peeling the motive, exclaimed, “ W hat: is si, l not yet lifeless?—then we will finish this wots of death ;” and were rushing out to execute their purpose, when the youth caused the truop of horsemen, sent to aid his purpose, to appear, and threatened instant death to him w ho should first stir to interrupt his design. The young girl was conveyed to his tent, and, after a series of kind attentions, slowly recovered. •• During her illness, the distracted lover, now cxpelied from his own tribe, came, under cover of the night, to see her ; and, weeping over her wounds, continually regretted that he had been 1 so base as to seek his safety in flight, and not to j have died in defending her. She as heroically i replied,'* No! no! It is my highest happiness ! that I have suffered,and that you have escaped ; j we shall both live, and Heaven will yet bless ns with many pledges of our lasting love.” This reajlv happened; the "irl recovered, was mar ried to her impassioned swain, and they are still both alive, with a numerous family of children. “ So romantic a tale of love, jealousy, re venge. fidelity, and heroism, would have been incredible, were it nut that all the parties were known to Mr. Maseyk, who related it , that lie did so in the presence of manv other persons born in Aleppo, and acquainted, by report, with the fact, and that the veracity of the narrator i njuv l-c regarded as unquestionable-"
