THE RECESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 17 June 1817

THE RECESS. From the Middlesex Gazette, The enclosed poem is founded on the following fact: A young lady of good education, amiable disposition, and pleasing manners, was seduced from the path of virtue and innocence by. the promise of immediate marriage fiom her perfid jus lover. She bore her fate for some time with fortitude and even resignation; but at length, becoming neglected by her relatives and left dependent On the charity of an unfeeling world for support, she resigned herself to despair, and determined to end her life by poison. As she smutched foi'th her hand to grasp the- cup containing the liquid death, ner eye by accident glanced on a Bible which lay open on the table;—the holy book had been opened by her child, which she then held to her bosom asleep. This sentence attracted her attention:— be of good comfort thy sins are forgiven thee!’—Hope revived in her breast, and the angel of mercy stayed the arm of death. “Sleep on, my babe, thy sleep is calm, 1 ho’ pillow’d o...

FIIOM A PARIS PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 17 June 1817

FIIOM A PARIS PAPER. Ever since moralists existed, they have written against public manners Ours are certainly not those of the golden age, but It is some consolation to reflect that our neighbors are no better than ouselves For instance. London is generally allowed to be the terrestrial para disc of husbands; English wives are re garded as models of tenderness & fideli ty. The following calculation which we extract from an English paper, is not a little curious. Slate of marriages in London , in 1816. Runaway wives, 1 132 Runaway husbands, 2.348 Married persons legally divorced, 4,175 Living in open warfare, 17,340 Living in private misunderstanding 13,252. Mutually indifferent, S5 240 Regarded as happy, r, 115 Nearly happy, 127 Perfectly happy, \ 13 Total, £6,834 This is new kind of statisticks We are assured that one of our first moral ists is engaged in drawing out a similar account of the city of Paris.

FALSE EMPHASIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 17 June 1817

FALSE EMPHASIS. A writer on English Grammar gives the following example of false emphasis. A clergyman, on reading the 13th chapter of Ist Kings, verse '27’th, generally placed the emphasis on the words noted by italics—“ And he spake to his sons, saying saddle me the asp. And they sad died him. 1 Flacourt, in his history of the island of Madagascar, gives us a sublime prayer, used by the people we call savage “O eternal! have mercy upon me because I am but aspeck O most mighty! because I am weak-O source of life! because I draw nigh to the grave-O omniscient! because I am in darkness—O all-sufficient! be* cause I am nothing.”

LOVE’S TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 17 June 1817

LOVE’S TELEGRAPH. ’ We learn that a new system'of signals has been introduced subservient to the affections of the heart and the obligations of parties: For example if a gentlemen wants a wife he wears a ring on the first finger; if married, on the third; and on the fourth if he never intends to be married. When a lady is not engaged she wears a hoop or diamond on the first finger; if married on the third; and on the fourth if she intends to die a maiden. When a gentleman presents a flower, a fan or a trinket to a lady with the left hand it is on his part an overture of regard; if she receives it withrthe left hand it is an acceptance of his esteem; but if with the right hand, it is a refusal of the offer. Thus by a few simple to kens, explained by rule the passion of love is expressed, and through tjie medi um of the telegraph kindred hearts communicate information. The stuttering Soldier. A soldier being sent on the late Dutch expedition, said to the officer .directing the drafts....
