EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 5 August 1817

EUROPE. Peace seems to be established in Europe upon an almost immovable basis; the five leading powers having pledged themselves'to preserve it, nothing less than a rupture of their alliance can possibly interrupt the pacific relations of that continent. How often have we heard it asserted that England could not exist in a state of peace, and that war was as necessary for the support of the government and the prosperity of the people of that country, as food is for the preservation of animal life;and yet England has perhaps done more to preserve the tranquility of Europe than all the other powers together. It is nevertheless a bitter pill for John Bull to swallow; and the deprivation of his accustomed aliment (the spoils of his neighbors) has, even at this period reduced him almost to a skeleton. Nevertheless he keeps up his spirits astonishingly, and though struggling with a multitude of internal ills (enough to shatter a sounder constitution than his,) he adheres to his obligatio...

FROM AMELIA ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 5 August 1817

FROM AMELIA ISLAND. We have, says a Charlseton paper, of the 19th inst. seen several letters from St Mary’s and Amelia Island, received by yesterday’s mail, which confirm the verbal accounts received here a few days since, from the same quarter, that the prospects of the patriots were by no means so flattering as at first represented Had M’Gregor pushed for St, Augustine immediately on his landing at Amelia, while the Spaniards were panick struck and flying before him, he might perhaps have gained possession of that fortress—but he has lost that oppolunity by delay; his followers are becoming dissatisfied; while the inhabitants of Florida are taking the alarm from the misconduct of his outposts and the planters are petitioning the officers of the American government on the front : er, for permission to bring theirnegroes into ourterritory for safety.

Prom the elbow chair of Timothy Tickler, enq. 4 Mr. Editor. Sir, I did not intend to trouble you a gain until i got better, and this wet and rainy weather has no very salutary effect upon my complaint, 1 assure you; but a little circumstance has just occurred which I cannot forbear communicating to you, inasmuch as it completely corroborates the account Ben gave me of the passing manners of the times. A pretty little fascinating Sylph came in to my room last evening to enquire how I did—The brightness of the diamond sparkled in her eye, the tint of the rose glowed upon her cheek, and the music of the spheres flowed from her tongue — in short she appeared a little lump of clayey perfection; my old heart bumped with all the ardor of youth when the little trollop entered—but hush; what would Dolly, my faithful old spouse, say should she hear roe talk thus. However had I been a young man I must candidly own I could not have resisted such a combination of charms. But to proceed; after en...

BEAUTY’S GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 5 August 1817

BEAUTY’S GRAVE. TRt-AU softly stranger! this is ground Which no rude footsteps should impress. With tender pity gaze around) Let sadness all thy soulwosafss. Tread softly! lest thou cruflkhe flowers That o’er this turf are taught to wave, Transplanted from their native towers, To shed their sweets o’er Beauty’s Grave. A nd stranger, let your melting heart, Mark well this fresh and verdant sod! And ere you from this scene depart, Qt let your soul commune with GOD. Thus fade the fragile buds of earth, Thus fade the lovely and the bravel Come here ye thoughtless sons of mirth, And pause a while o’er Beauty’s Grave. Sweet wither’d Rose! may thy pale doom Call tears into the virgin’s eye! O may the prospect of this tomb Remind her “all thatdive must die!” And warn het in the days of youth, To think of Him who being gave, And bid her seek the way of Truth, Like her who sleeps in Beauty’s Grave.'

A XEGAL PUN. In a trial, wherein Garrow and Jekil were employed as counsel, an old wo* man was brought forward as a witness to prove that there had been a tendre made of money. The old womaiygave rather an equivocating evidence, upon which Jekil. who opposed Garrow on the occasion, handed himthiscouplet written with a pencil: Garrow forbear?—that tough old jade Can never prove—a tender maid. A lady once asking a French ambassador, who had resided a long time in Poland, whether it was true, that the Polish ladies were as white and as cold as the snow which covered their plains, he replied, "It is so true, madam, that I I have often caught cold, by conversing with them.” —— When I look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies within me; when I read the epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinatedesiregoes out; whenlmeet with the gnef of parents on a tomb stone, my heart melts with compassion; when 1 see the tomb of the parents themselves, 1 consider the vanity of grievi...

SOUTH AMERICA. FROM THE VIRGINIA HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 12 August 1817

SOUTH AMERICA. FROM THE VIRGINIA HERALD. As friends to liberty in whatever clime her standard may be erected, our hopes, our wishes, and our fears, are alternately turned tow aids our brethren in the south. We can attach but little importance, comparatively speaking, to the events lately transpired in the Hot ides, as they condpute so little to the general result amicipated by the friends & foes to the emancipation of the whole of South America. In addition to this, the belief that has been very rationally jentertained by many, that they would, at no very distant day, become a part of the United States, serves to lessen that importance which otherwise might have been attached to the late movements of M’Gregor. As a diversion in the cause of the patriots in Mexico & Mew Spain,, lit will have but little effect, as it is. probable that Spain will find it more to her interest to sell than to defend the Florida*.
