FEMALE POLTRY
In painting the milder affection« «ut nature,
the poetesses of all age* have been eminently suc
cessful. Love, friendship, and filial »flection, dÀtf
wear a more beautiful garb than when ornament«;
by. a female hand. It la not the province of woman
to aurmAunt the craggy mountain, and to delight
in the terrors which »he views from its brow, or to
traverse the pathless ocean, and to rejoice in its dan
gerous sublimity; but it is her pleasant employ lo
walk amid beds of flower« and there to gather tbo
sweetest, the tenderest; and the most beautifuf.
These remarks are parliculatly applicable to »
work, hastily noticed in our Inst number—wo allude
to the poems of Mil* H. F. Gould. Thete is
something m the poetry of this lady, which speaks
moat earnestly from the heart, and which teaches
us a mild sod lovely wisdom. It doe* not terrify,
but wins to goo&u-xs—it is placid and afflectionate,
and earnest-hearnd. Take for instance the follow
tag piece «^illustrative of our rtfaarke:
THE PLAVT.llNfjS
Oh! mother, here's the very top,
That brother used lo spin ;
The vaseVtlh seeds I've scop him drop

His bow, hia cap, and brill,
The slate on which ho learned to write,
Ilia feather, cap, and .all!

-Go, Anna, take bitu out to play,
And ahnt the closet door,

Of him that's lost, how deep it fink»
Within a mother's breast.

female Sentimentalists .—There is a great deal
of spurious «ennuient in every thing.—And
the aflucuun or lAnapphcation of feeling ia Ur more
prejudicig) than us excess. Thus tin sympathy
which works of fiction excite, though it baa ill it
something tender and romantic, by no mesas in
volves real feeling. The young
verted in romances will, no doubt, acquire the lan
guage of teatiment. She wilt have a a'gh, and s
tear lor every occasion,—a languishing look, and a
palpitation;' she. will condole with every
woman who >■

proférerons of sympathy. She will oven imagine
it pretty and picturesque to appear in a cottage, to
drop a guinea on a poor man's table and to receive,

when the efibet is reully made, wbon site finds that
charity involves self denial and exertion, thst Bhe
must nsc from the luxuriant couch, aud sod tier
silken sandals, and encounter, perhaps rudenew
and ingratitude from the object of har relief; and
all that, ia to bo dono without observation orap
plause; that there is no one to Overhear her silver
voice, or to watch her gliding footsteps, or lo trace
lier fairy form as she passes dhwn the village street ;
then tier philanthropic ardor cools,she shrinks from
the painful duly, and discovers that what is very in
teresting and poetic in description, is very dull and
"irksome it) practice. Tho very morbidpess of lier
sensibility is'a bar to the real exorcisa of benevo
lence: she cannot bear to look upon pain; there is
so much that is offensive in human misery, tnd un
romantic in its detail; there ia so much that i* ap
palling In scenes of misery, and sickness, and death,
I hat she recoils from tho mere observation of such
calamities, and shuts lier eyes and closes hor ears
to genuine distrore, from the same feeling» that
cause her to scream at the approar.lv of a spidor, or
faint at the sight of blood. Yet she delights to

Cherry ripe.—One of tho gay wniter* of the days
• if Charles tho 2d, describing the beauties ol Hamp
ton Court, thus speaks of Lady Castleman's eyes
and lipa.—"Castlerosn*» eyes and lips wore haugh
ty and lafitping, not so handsome a* her month,
which liowr vet waa a little pouting. I once saw
liar reting a great stick of barley sugar, and never
could got it out of my head afterw^rla. She al
ways seemed to me to be finishiag it under the rose,
like a girl (hat has taken sweetmeats to church.
However, the lips were as hesutiful, as health,
plumpness, and a smiling outline could make them.
They irrre so red, that when the sun shone upon
them, ' they absolutely seemed to sparkle like cher

A Cure for Gallantry.—A young officer of the
National Guard, lias >u*t received a check
which Will .probably cure him of gallantry for
life. He had tormented the preljy wife of a
dyer some time, with letters of «omplimcnls, fol
lowed her about lixe a shadow, and, nt last, became
terribly importunate; (lust she revealed the affair
to her husband, who desired her to give him an sp
poiiflmetii.—Hardly had tho conference began,
when the dyer and several of Ins workmen appear
ed, and seizing the unhappy lover, gave him a goon
sousing in a tub of indigo. Then, in order that
ihe dye might lie solid nnd durable, they made him
stand before i large fironill lie was entirely dry.
Unfortunately he was obliged to attend parade next
day, and in consequence ro fnade such a plentiful
iiso of soap and Eau Je Cologne, that trie tint of
indigo disappeared, hut it was to give place to a
beautiful sky blue.— Court Journal.

by a stroke from tho powerful foot of tho
bird. ■
So many as sixty eggs are sometimes found in a

a single pair of ojtriche*. Each female lays from
twelve to sixteen eggs. They continue to lay dur
ing incubation, and even after the young brood
are hatched ; tho supcrntimerary eggs are not placed
ill the nest, hut are around «It, being deaigned to
paaistin the nourishment of the young birds, which
though Wboo first hatched are as large as'pungls',
probably unable at ooco to digest thejiard and

period of meubatibn is from thirty-six ( 0 furly days.
In the heat of thé day the nest is occasionally s

An Ostrich egg is equsl in its contents lo twenty

the nest, (hey are very palatable, and are whole

of cooking them thst I bave seen is that practised
by the Hottentots, who plsce one end of the egg
