THE RECESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 15 April 1817

THE RECESS. Reader, if in the nuptial state thou Wouldst be happy, beware of the fascinat jng charms of beauty, the insinuating arts of learning, the brilliant flashes of momentary wit, and the dangerous allurements of glittering gold. Unless they be blended with virtue, modesty, good-sense and charity, they will lead you into the bitter pool of matrimonial wretchedness. CHOICE OF A WIFE. ■I ask not beauty—’tis a gleam That tints the morning sky: I ask not learning—.’tis a stream That glides unheeded by. I ask not wit—it is a flash That oft blinds reason’s eye: I ask not gold—’tis glittering trash. That causes man to sigh. I ask good sense, a taste refin'd, Candor with prudence blendedA feeling heart, a virtuous mind, With charity attended. To a languishing, ugly, talkative old maid. If you’d be married, first grow young; Wear a mask, and hold your tongue. jin alliterated description Of what a wife ought to be—by an old HACHi-IJJH. Amiable—affectionate—agreeable artless—affable—acco...

ON THE LATE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 22 April 1817

ON THE LATE NEWS. When our readers have read the for eign articles which we this day publish, they will bCi as we have been, much struck with the extraordinary similitude between the doings in England in 1795 and 1817. It is not for us to say whether the present ministers, seeing that, the tide of public feeling had set in against them, were desirous to profit by what lord Castlereagh calls “the precedent of 1795,” and therefore got ufi the hissers on the late occasion, but certain it is, that the effect will be to kindle a blaze of loyalty through the nation, to call forth addresses and congratulations from every part, and to cause the enactment of laws to restrain the liberty of speech and the press, and to prevent popular assemblies of the people. Advantage will also be taken of the terror of the times t» keep up a large army, to levy heavier contributions, and resist all attempts at a reform in parliament. There never was a minister in England, not even Pitt, who so well underst...

Was’t but for them, the human race Would soon be swept away; And even earth, to their disgrace. Would tumble to decay! The social bond—that bond so sweet, Where heart and soul unite: Where friendship, love and union meet, Would sink in endless night. But ’tis in vain for me to prate, I cannot make them clever; Old bachelors 1 always hate, And must and shall forever.
