' t J>eleetiong. From the (Philadelphia) Ariel. Thefollowing jeu d 1 esprit was sent to a lady written in cypher. Our grandfather Adam in Eden's fair bow- ers, Beheld with such pleasure the fruits and the flowers, •Twas plain he would soon grow too fond of his birth, And a partner was sent him to wean him from earth. Were it not for this tempest that ruffles life's tide, So smooth down thecurrent our vessels would glide, We ne'er should be willing to look to that shore, Where the trammels of wedlock can vex us no more. Alas ! how my heart has been rended with sighs— How the tear of compassion has stream'd from my eyes, When I've thought of my breth'ren and sis- ters that sup Of the ills that are mix'd in the conjugal cup. How great and how varied the ills that they bear! What a famine of pleasure and feast of all care; How desparate their case is, whom nothing can save From ceaseless contention and strife, but the grave. The clash of opinion embitters their days, With ceaseless endeavours to travel two ways, Unwilling to follow, each tugs to prevail Like two angry kittens tied fast by the tail. Than marry—naj friends—but endeavour to find Encumbrances crooked of body and mind, For the neavier the load is, with which you are opprest, The more you will relish theblessings of rest. §'* :- mrtiatn to the ter of a school iii Norfolk.

The prisoner dreams—no chains has he on, Unfetter'd and free as the air, To his long lost house and heme he has gone, To see his dear loved ones there. The vision has fled, and the damp cold chain Encircles his body around— Sleep, prisoner sleep, and dream again, Tis there that thy joys are fond. The lover's dream is a dream of blisp, Hi3 fair one smiles once more, Again he bestows the parting kiss— But alas ! his vision is o'er. No more for him do those bright eyes brain. And the welcome smile is not there. And he sighs that his joy was but a dream, Ai he sinks on his couch of despair. Thus pas3 our hours on life's gloomy stream ; Unheeded let them hasten bv. For e'en this world is but a dream, And only those awake—who die. V. V V. Albany, May 2 >, 1027. OOWUGAL AFFECTION. Tis sweet, to thu.k, there still is one, Whose bosom beats forme, Who closer clings as others shun, Who'll never, never flee. The faithful bird that cleat es the air, Through tra< klesn region* flies, But -till one thought, one hope is there, To cheer him through the skies. Affection's chart his pinions guide. Remembrance lends its light, While to his mate, his bosom s pride, He speeds his homeward flight. LAMENT. Oh! fare thee well, dearest, the morning may bloom, And dock the wild flowers that breathe on thy tomb, But it cannot brighten the spirit that's fled, Nor awake the sweet corse from the trance of the dead. From the London Mirror. BEAUTY. <; The wind passeth over it, and it is gone.\ That building which raised upon a solid unnatural foundation, tho' but plain and simple, in its architecture is much superiour to, the tastefully constructed temple—which in magnificence, attracts the admiration of many,but whose found- ation is weak and shallow. Just so we ought to estimate the noble structure of the human frame—not by the outward form and pleasing figure, but by the principles of virtue, that govern and support a grand pile, and create it proof against the tempests of this life. Solid- ity forms the valuable property of any specifiick thing, while ornaments are but the flights of fancy. In order to substain the multifuiious movements of this life with ease and happiness, extremes should be studious- ly avoided. Indeed, the extremes of any thing, whether in the natural or the moral state of the world, are far from being congenial either with happiness or virtue. \ Happiness, as well as virtue,\ says Dr. Johnson, \ consists in mediocri- ty ;\ and the maxim of \ Clobulus, the Lindoin, mediocrity is best,has long been considered as an universal principle, ex- tended through the whole compass of life and human nature.\ Even the ex- treme of fortune forces upon us many vices and mischiefs, unknown to the middle station of life; while extreme health, and of natures more valuable gifts, frequently renders us careless and unguarded, and guilty of many irregu- jlanties—which, at length interrupt hap- piness and virtue. Beauty is, of course an extreme gift of nature ; and if the great lord Bacon can be relied on, lie evidently shews the in- jurious effects of this estrone. \ Beau- tiful women\ says he, \ are seldom of icatethe whale of their actions mm*,™ w \\-T\\__ l7S4 and was ea rlv charms of beauty-and *tf -ore can £•£**£ ££ ^\i Asaclosiueword I would wish to'guages by her father.

A woman when possessed of these entangling charms, is conscious of her attractive powers, and studies to render tliern if possible more conspicuous. The great Baroness de Staell was so regardless of acconi plishments, that she would lieely ex- change half her knowledge for person- al charms. If it were in the least ne- 1 eenry, innumerable instances could be shown where extiernes in beauty had all the effect which Bacon would wish to attribute to it. The ill fated Jane Shore and the ciafty Cleopatra, aie sufficient evidence. u Beauty,\ says Bacon, \ is as sum- mer fruits, which are easy to corrupt and cannot last.\ This, like most ol diat nobleman's precepts, conveys much truth. It is easy to corrupt, because in its very nature it is frivolous and of no importance, and cannot last, because, like all matter, it is perishable. Vet, notwithstanding, how many endeavour to cultivate and encourage it, to the neglect of their essential duties and ob- ligations, who, like the poor peacock, when it spreads its well plumed, richly variegated fan to an admiring crowd, as- sumes only that which attends ignorance. That which will, in any shape what- ever, whether directly or indirectly, pro- mole and nourish virtue and happiness, is of itself good, and claims the iove of all well disposed individuals. Beauty, so far from proving cundu(-ive to hnp- iiiness or virtue, is the parent of misery —the constant attendant on folly—and the source from whence the forsaken husband and the orphan child date the origin of their miseries. In short, it entails unhappiness on the possessors and the admirers. A cogent argument Jin support of this is derived from the knowledge, that females possessing these charms always attract strong admiration md fancied love—that they become so familiarized to this praise that they are induced to persuade themselves that beauty is a pre-eminent quality, and needs only to be known to receive pro- tection and support. Beauty has received censure from ancient as well as modern writers, and there seems to have been some occasion for it. Socrates in speaking of it, has described it as a short lived tyranny ; and Theophrastus, as a silent fraud.— The ancient ladies seem to have out- done all attempts on the part of our mo- dern ladies to further personal charms.— The Roman ladies used chalk and white lead, or paint, for we are told by Mar- tial, that \ Fabula was afraid of the rain on account of the chalk on her free; and Lobelia of the sun, because of the ceruse with which her face was painted; and that the famous Poppxa, the first mistress and afterwards wife of Nero, made use of an unction paint, which hardened upon the face, and en- tirely changed the original features.\ To beg pardon of our female readers for saying thus much, and to speak the truth, niuch blame is attributable to man, for first placing a higher vale upon it, j and women demand no more. Men tfave been found weak enough to dedi- the system of female education, in j «ants of our race, exchanging the pro- j which she has in part succeeded. Asjdacta of industry of different countries, a novel writer, she tanks among the J toiling amidst the perils of war and the most eminent, and the Irish character j tumults of politicks—to you is commit- has never been drawn with equal truth t ed the nober task of moulding the in- and spirit by any other writer.

JOANNA BAILLIE—Is a single lady, who resides chiefly in her native coun- try, Scotland. .She is distinguished lor iier talents and writings, and has pub- ished a series ol\ plays in several vol- umes, illustrative ol the strong passions of the mind. She has also written a oUection of metiical legends of tms- characters, in one volume. T. A. Actio* OsnonwE, Att'v.

Her father, who was a silver- smith, becoming embarrassed in his pecuniary affairs, his daughter became a publick singer at Milan, at the age of fifteen and was highly applauded bv the Italian and French criticks and journals. On her first appearance in England, in 1806. she was found supe- riour to all the continental panegyricks, and has never since ceased to be great- ly admired. Her voice is singularly powerful, and equally melodious in the high and low tones. Her figure is fine- ly formed, and her deportment majes- tick. She is still heard with delight, both in Great Britain and on the continent. Mrs. OPIE.—This lady was born in 177D She is the daughter of Dr. Al- derson, an eminent physician of Nor- wich. She early evinced superiour talents, by composing poems and de- scriptive pieces, at an age when young ladies have not usually finished their education. In 1798 she married Mr. Opie, a celebrated painter, and soon after his death, in 1S0S, she published • memoir of his life prefixed to the lec- tures he had read at the Royal Acade- my. By this and other publications, she has acquired considerable reputa- tion, both as a prose and poetical writer. Mrs. SIUUONS—Is the daughter of Mr. R. Kenible. She was b.iru about the year 174!). This lady commenced her career as a singer, but she soon re- linquished that employment, and at- tempted tragedy. On her appearance at Drury-lane theatre, in 1782, her suc- cess was complete, the publick was as- tonished at her powers, and she was ac- knowledged to be the first tragick ac- tress of the age. For more than twen- ty years she retained her high rank as an actress, and continued, during that period, to enchant the lovers of the dra- ma. She also possesses considerable merit as a sculptor. Mrs. Siddons has accumulated an ample property, with which she has retired from the stage to the quiet of domestick life. JANE AND ANN MARIA PORTEH.— These ladies aie sisters, and daughters of Sir Robert Porter. They have long held a high rank among female novel writers of the day. The former has written fc Thaddeus of Warsaw,\ 'Scot- tish Chiefs,' and other works which have been well receivod by the publick and very extensively read. The youn- ger sister has published \ The Hunga- rian Brothers,\ \ The Recluse of Nor- way,\ and more recently, the \ Fast of St. Magdalen.\ Until the appearance of that splendid series of works, the Waverly novels, the sisters had gained a great degree of popularity. They have, however with others, been obliged to yield to the unrivalled merits of the \ Great Unknown.\ ANNA LETITIA BARBAIJLD.—This lady is the daughter of the Rev.
