, THE FATAL FLOWER,
; Travellers who visit the falls of Ni
agra, ara directed to the spot 'on, the
margin of the precipice, over the boil
ing current below, where a gay young
lady, a few years since, lost her lifo.
She was, delighted with the , wonders
of the unrivaled scene, and ambitipus
to pluck a flower from a cleft where
no human hand had before ventured,
as a memorial of the cataract and her
own daring, she leanqd over the, verge
and. caught a glimpse of the surging
waters far down the battlement of
rocks, while fear for a moment dark
ened her excited mind. But there
hung the lovely blossom upon which
her heart was fixed, and she leaned in
a delirium of intense .desire, and an
ticipation over the, , brink. Hermanns
were: outstretched .to grasp the beau
tiful flower which charmed her fancy;
the turf 'yielded to thb 'pressure of her
...... . ..C'i"-' .!;.' . .

scended like a falling star to the rocky
shore, and was borne ; away gasping
in death,' How impressively does this
tragical event' illustrate the way in
which a majority, of eminent sinners
perish, forever! It is not a deliberate
purpose -to neglect salvation, but in
the pursuit of imaginary-, good,' fas
cinated with pleasing objects just in
the future,, they, lightly, .ambitiously,
and insanely, venturo :loo Ian They.
sometimes fear the result of desired
wealth, .or pleasure,; i they sometimes
hear the thunder, of eternity's deep,
and recoil a moment from the allure
ments of sin, hut the solemn pause is
brief, the onward step is taken, the
fancied treasure n in the grasp, when
a despairing cry comes from Jordan's
waves, and the soul sinks into the
arms of the second death. Oh ! eve--ry
hour lifo's sand is sliding !rom in
cautious feet;' and with sin's fatal
lower, in, t,he unconscious hand, the
triIer goes to his doom ! The requiem
of such a' departure is' an eclso.of tlicJ .ft'!no.,.,t u,.. t.

that, under the present organization of !
society, there is nothing for woman to; ,
do. Nothing-' for woman to do! Is
there no wrong, or sorrow, or death?-" ,
Arc there no moiherless children, f&m
ishing equally for mortal and imhlor
tal food. Are there no families where? .
the little ones arc more than orphans,
because the parents are drunkards and
criminals, or both? Is there no broth
er, or other relative, whom womanly,
sympathy might take by the hand, and, ,'
lead past the yawning pit of ruin,, as ''
the guardian angel, in' the picture",'"'
leads the small child past the beetling'
precipice? While trouble, or evil, or' 3
death exists, there will be plenty to bb '
done- by women, whether unmarried "
or married. ' In fact, the province ' 6t. "
single womeii lies more riiglj' thescout' '
door charities than that of the wife of '
mother. Wisely has it been ordered '
that some of the sex shall be denied the;
sweet solace of domestic life, in ordeV"1'
that they may imitate their divine mas
ter, by feeding the hungry, ' clothing'
the naked, comforting the widowed '
and the fatherless. :''
But as the greater majority of wo-!
men enter into the married relation, it
is of them we ought to speak, in an- -svver
to the. questipu, "what can wo-''
man do?" As a wife and mother, wo-;
man can make or'mar the fortune ancl
happiness of her husband aud children;;;

how small their beginnings, or how ad-,,

overtasked powers. 'By her counsels
and her love, she can win him from
bad company, if temptation, in an evil
hour, has led him astray. By her. ex.
ample, her precepts, and her sex's, .'in
sight into, character, .she. can mould
her children, however, diverse their
dispositions, into cood arid' noble minn
aim wuiucM. nu py. leading, in all
things, a true and beautiful life,she can
refine, elevate and spiritualize all who '
come within her reach, so that, with
others of her sex emulating and assist
ing her, she' can eventually do more to
regenerate the world than, all tho '
statesmen or reformers' that ever leg-' t
jslatcd. - :
She can do as much, alas! perhaps
even more, to degrade man, if she
chooses it. Who can estimate the e.vil
that woman has power to do?. ' ."As a
wife she can ruin her husband by ex
travagance, folly or want .of affection."'
She can make a devil and outcast ofa
man 'who might otherwise ' have ' be';
come a good member of society. She
can bring bickerings, strife and perpet
ual discord on what has been a happy
home.' She can change the Innocent
babes whom God has intrusted to her
charge into vile mnn and even viler
women. She can lower the 'moral
tone of society itself, and thus pollute
legislation at tho spring-head. She
can, in fine, become an instrument of
evil, instead of an angel of good. In
stead of making the flowers of 'truth,
purity, beauty and spirituality spring
up in her footsteps, till the whole earth
smihs with' loveliness that is almost
ccle.stia'l, she 'can. transform it to a
black and blasted desert, covered with
the scoria of all. evil passions, "'and
swept by the' bitter blasts of 'everlast
.1 . '
Thii is what women can do for the
wrong as well as for the right. I her
mission a little one? lias she no wor
