The world is full of toil,

It binds the hiliorer to the toil,
The student to bis home
The beast of burden sigh,
O'erloaded and oppressed
The Sabbath lifts its Lanier high,
And gives the weary rest.
The world is full of care.
The haggard brow is vv rotihf
In furrow as of fixed despair,
And eheok'd the heavenward thought;

In a small cottago ornee at Richmond,
cominanihng a delightful yicw of the
1'hames, lived Madame la Iloche and her
only child, Adeline. "
At on early age the pnrcnts of Madame
la liocha had taken-her from h'er native
country, England, to France, in order that
her education might !' completed. Here
a certain Moiisier la Ruche, a man much
older but also much richer than herself,
had solicited her hand. In obedience to
the commands of her parents, in spite of
her strongly-expressed aversion, the match
was concluded, and her elderly husband
and thy young wife took up their abode in
Paris. Three years afterward Monsieur
la Rurhe died, leaving one child, a daugh
ter. Since that event Madame la Roche
hud resided in Switzerland first, and sub
s quenlly in Germany. At length, tired
of the Continent, she returned to Eng
land, where she hud now lived two years,
and v. here she firmly intended to spend
the remainder of her i!as.
As woman is placed in our present so
ci..l system, perhaps the most independent
and hie enjoying of the sex is a young
and atirac'.ive widow. Madame la Roche
was both young and attractive and sens
ible too, or she would have been envious
of her sweet daughter, Adeline. As it
was, she treated her with the warmth ol
a mother and the confidence of an elder
On n certain summer day, Adeline la
R oi Ire was seated in a rocm opening una
law ii which sloped to the river. Jiy her
side, w as a man youthful and handsome,
lie held one of her hands clasped in his,
and w hs lookii g w ith a most impist-ioncd
air into her Lie. Her tjes wre cast
iljiv'ii, and the slightest suspicion of a blush
u us upon lit r cheek. The blush would
have been deeper bill it was a situation
she was somewhat Used to. They loved
'And you fear, George, that mama w ill
never consent?'1 said Adeline, continuing
a ctliuuy that had bu n proceeding, Hea
ven knows how long; ior in sueli cases
(I'm told) hours arc n!e minutes.
"I fear it much," said tieuigi! Trevor
"'iYhat pretensions havel? A man ol
wealth and consideration like Mr. (Jrof
loii may hope but I cull hope for noth
ing." 'Ha! ha! you art) jealous," said Ad
eline, looking upand smiling archly.1 "L'o
you distrust me then ?"
"No, dear Adeline, indeed," replied
George. "1 do believe that your heart is
mine, and mint only; but say if I have
n it cause for suspecting that Mr. Crcllon
is my rival, au.l that your mamma lavers J
"Now you mention it,'.' said Adeline,
"I will confess to you that I am very mis
erable on this account. Ever since we
first met Mr. Crofton at that horrid ball,
he has l.-cni eternally at the house. He
inul perceiv e how coldly 1 receive him."
"And how docs Madame la Ruche re
ceive him?" inquired Trevor.
"Ah, too well 1" replied Adeline. '1
often sec them silting together in a cort.t r
talking in n low tone, and every now and
then looking towards me, as if I were the
subject of conversation, lie is trying to
train mamma over to his interest, I know .
It will be of no use if he docs. 1 Would
sooner die than marry him I"
"So having experienced the misery of
a forced mulch hersell, she would doom
you to the same fate 5"' said Gcorga Tre
vor, with vehemence.
"I hardly know w hat to think," said
Adeline, gently. "When I remember how
affectionately she always treats me, it
seems impossible ; but w hen I see her en
courage so evidently the visits of Mr.
Crofton, 1 am compelled to dread every
thing." "We may be mistaken, after nil, Ade
line," said Trevor. These vi.its are pro
bably intended for Madame la Roehu.-
Remember, mademoiselle, you are not the
only young and pretty inhabitant of Vine
"Oh, I am sure that is not the case,"
said Adeline- "Mamma has told me, of
ten and often, that no consideration on
earth should induce her to murry again,
and that all her cure now was to see me
happily settled. Mr. Crofton and mam
ma are now viewing the conservatory to
gether. George, I feel a strange presen
timent that he vvi 1 propose formally for
me (his morning, and (hut I shall be call
ed upon to give him his answer ut once."
"You will reject him, then, Adeline?'1
said Trevor anxiously.
"Can you ask Hie ?" exclaimed Ade
line. "I will never bestow my hand
where I cannot bestow my heart K'W,
George, is yours past praying for!" '
"Ten thousand thanks fortius one more
proof of constancy," said Trevor, "To
doubt your truth now would indeed
be Id think you unworthy of love.
Rut I hear footsteps approaching; they
are returning from the conservatory. A
ilicti, dear Adeline, for a time. I will not
meet Mr. Crofton but I am not jealous,
Scarcely had George Trevor loft the a
pnrtment when Madume la Roche and Mr
Crofton entered from (lie lawn. Mr.
Crofton rather preeipifately took his leave,
and Madame hi Roche and Adeline were
"Sit do n, Adeline," said her mother.
' I have something very particular to say
Adeline obeyed with the air of a mar
tyr. Ilcr presentiment had evidently been
but too true.
"My dear child," continued Madame
la Roche, "you are now of an age when
you should begin to think of being settled
in life. Nature has given you beauty and
talents ; I have, to the utmost of my abil
ity, given you a good education ; and I
may say, vv ithout flattery, that you are ca
pable ol making any man happy. Why,
then, remain single, if you meet with one
(or whom you can feel an affection!'"
Adeline ollercd no observation, and Ma
dame la Roche continued:
"There is a gentleman who, I am cer
tain loves yon. I have seen enough of
him to be as certain that lie deserves your
love in return, and it will give nie pleas
ure if yen (ell me that he possesses it."
"My dear mamma," said Adeline with
firmness, it is belter to be candid at once.
I know whom you mean, and all you are
iroing to say ; but it L vain. I do not lov e
him I never shall love him and I cau
iivt many him."
"Adeline! Adeline!" cried her mother
laiighii'.g ; vou are too quick by far for
me. Do j oil not love will you never
love and cannot you marry George
"George Trevor!" exclaimed Adeline,
her breath nearly taken away by astonish
ment. "Ay, George Trevor !" said her moth
er. "So you blush novt, and I was uot
inisiakcn, 1 find, in supposing that you lo
ved each other. I urn glad of it, dear
child, and giv o my must willing consent
to your union."
"1 feared you would not listen to him,
or I would have confided in j on," said
Adeline, half laughing and halt crying nt
this sudden and unexpected realization of
hoj.es she had scarcely dared to entertain.
"Not listen to him ! und tbut merely be
cause at present he happens to be jiour!"
excl.timou Madame la Heche. "Ah, my
Adeline ! it is iov e, not w talih, tha'. should
be consiucitd ; and if George Trevor be
poor are we not rich enough? Hut,"
continued s!.c, holding dow n her head and
speaking l.illeriugiy, now that 1 Have

to jour inariiage, will you, dear little
friend, wish me the sumu and consent to
my mai ri.ige ?"
"You! juu marry again!" exc'.aiined

The opinion formed by the pedple from
the United States in regard to New Mex
ico, is generally most erroneous. The
men who come here are, in most cases,
farmers or mechanics, and expectto see
lure what they set in the United
States. They look for a vast district o(
country, dotted with fine houses, end o
verspread wiili numberless and luxuriant
fields; and because the appearance and
face of the country present an aspect less
attractive than their fancies had painted
for them, they denounce it without stint.
In a word, because (he rich loam and the
boundless fields of the Western Stales are
not every w here visible, they are iinable
lo form any oilier opinion than that this is
a very poor country fit for nothing.
These men, thus judging and expressing
opinions, ore farmers und mechanics.
There conclusions arc very iiMur.il, but
very erroneous, und calculated by the dif
fusion of such views over the U. States,
to give a very improper and unjust notion
of New Mexico. The practice of irriga
tion, too, meets vv ith great condemnation,
nnd Iroiu view s equally ignorant and has
tily formed. A man who has never seen
a foot of ground in this Territory, beyond
that v isible from the road on his passage
to Sanla Fe, will deliberately express and
write his opinion on the whole Territory,
and, by !he specimen he has seen, condemn
that of which he knows nothing. Rut re
fleeting men form far different and jitster
view s. They see no occasion for immense
agricultural resources, such ns Missouri
or Illinois jhissccS, but going a step fur
ther, hunt for other sources of happiness
and natural prosperity, and find them
I'o a judicious opinion on an' subject,
knowledge is essential, yet opinions of
this Territory are boldly advanced in ut
ter ignorance of it. New Mexico is
judged only by its grain growing facilities
the extensive agricultural branch of
stock raising being entirely overlooked.
Let the reader ask himself whether tny
State ol the American Union contains e
qual capacity fur the production nnd sus
tenance of stock? in what one is grass
equally uutricious and abundant? in
what Slule there are such inducements
and means of manufacturing w oolen cloths,
iron, &c? Where ore such rich mines
of gold, silver, copper, lead, quicksilver,
iron, coal and other mineral? In what
State are produced such generous crops
with such lillle labor ? In what consists
the condemnation of irrigation, by v Inch
every man, with the least possible trou
ble, makes his own season, and never fails,
tilher by too much or too little rain, to
have a liberal crop? Look at the coiu'.i
tionof education the absence of median-'
ical trades; the rudeness of all agricul
tural implements; the vast wealth con
stantly withdrawn by Indian robberies,
nnd the want, hitherto, of all motive to in-;
dustry, aitd the consequent vice and im
morality incident to idleness, united with
the existence, of a wretched political sys
tem, unable to afford protection to the peo
ple, impotent to encourage the investment
of capital, and to promote or foster the i'o- j
vehement of any unjile source of w ealth, 1

The merchants have fitted up large and
convenient rooms in place of the small'
and crowded ones, and the doors, w indows-,
and other marks of improvement ' tluit
strikethe eye every where, indicate a most
rapid improv ement. The ruins of old
houses which vv ere scattered all over tho
town, have given. p:ace to new and better
built ones, and us fust as workmen and
materials can be procured, new buildings
are going up. Not a street in (he place
presents the appearance it did this time
two years ngo, nnd if things continue, in
one year more the vvhole appearuiue of
the city w ill be changed. Every thing at
present is quiet ; but Mexicans and Ji
mericans nre using their utmost efforts for
the I-enefit of this city and Country ;, the
Mexicans seem contented with the pros

We often hear it remarked by young men

a desire to settle in this country, and vvc
know not why there nre not as. strong in
