The woman lifted the heavy trny from her head, and placing it upon ihe doorstep, sat wearily down. •'Whut's the price of your strawberries?" asked the lady, as she MOM lv the dour.

POPULAR SELECTIONS. GERMAN WOMEN. TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH OF MADAM DE STAEL, FOR THE CHRONICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 July 1847
POPULAR SELECTIONS. GERMAN WOMEN. TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH OF MADAM DE STAEL, FOR THE CHRONICLE. Nature and society huve bestowed upon women t a singular power of endurance; und no one, I i think, can deny, that in our uge, these influences , produce more etfecl even than men. At a time i when the prevailing evil is egotism, men, to whom i all positive interests relate, must of course possess less generosity, less sensibility tlnn women; the | latter are bound to life by ihe ties of thu hesurt, and | when they wander they are beguiled hyfeseling; | their personality always respects two, while that of j the man has himself alone for ils end. Homage is t rendered lo them hy the affections which ihey inspire : but ihese are for them, almost always sucri- t fices. The most beautiful of the virtues, devotion, f is for ihem both a delight an.) a destiny. Nothing | good cnn exist for them only hy the reflection of y the glory or prosperity of another. To live wilhout ( regard lo self, ei...
A PREDICAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 July 1847
A PREDICAMENT. I was one day travelling in Calubriu ; it is a country of wicked people, who, I believe, have no great liking to any body—and are particularly indisposed towards the French. To tell you why would he a long nfiuir. It is enough that they hate us to death, and that the unhappy being who should fall into their bunds would not puss his time in the most agreeable manner. I hud for my companion a lino young fellow. I do not say this to interest jou, but because it is die truth. In these mountains the roads are precipices, and our horses got on with the grealeit difficulty. My comrude going first a track which appeared more practicable and shutter than the regular path led us astray. It was my fault. Ought I to have trusted to a head of seven years? We sought our way out of the wood while it was yet light, but the more we looked for the path the farther we were oil" from it. It was a very black night, and we cume close upon a very black house. We went in, and not without sus...

I know little of the character or ministry of Mr. Shaw, except that loo who generally re-1 garded as a very worthy men, and faithful in his j sacred vocation.—Baling some economical ar- j rungements imposed by tho stress of hard necessity, their house was the centie of an elegant little society for twenty years ufter the revolution; some of the most cultivated inhabitants of Boston and ils vicinity delighting in a pilgrimage to Haverhill, where they could enjoy the charms of Mrs. Shaw's presence and conversation. In reference to her second marriage, I must relate a curiously interesting unecdoto, communicated lo me by an old female domestic of Mrs. Shaw's family, heiself one of the excellent of the earth, and who f...

"'TWAS EVER THUS." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 July 1847
"'TWAS EVER THUS." An amusing illustration of the false philosophy tvhich estimates a man's wealth by ihe quality of his chillies, and his worth hy his wealth, occurred at a religious meeting nol a long time ago. A couple, apparently man and wife, entered the church where the meeting was held. From their slvle of dress it seemed probable that they were strangers in a taraaga kind; their garments, though good and clean, were neither costly nor fashionable. They entered a pew where sat some ladies whose exterior was com&gt;iderahle more showy, nnd who seemed to look with some contempt, not republican certainly, upon their neighbors, the lady being of course the principal object of observation. The huftincau of ihe m-*««I"-* Y •* ■ "■"•J » and the collecttion was made. The plate bearers presented them to those in tbe pew who appeared respectable—to the strangers they presented them j not, possibly thinking ihey were poor immigrants ' who could not afford to give anything, and d...
