It is not my intention to examine the merits...
This lady was not more elevated by rank, than eminent by her virtues. Of her sex, she was an ornament, not less pure, than it was brilliant. At once the charm and the pride of the domestic circle. Exemplary in the fulfilment of every social and religious obligation; and in the native ease and characteristic dignity, with which they were discharged. Presiding, in her family, as though its cares...

I am once more seated to perform a duty which unintentionly has been delayed too long. But as I have your promise to answer me when I write, no circumstance shall prevent my enjoying that pleasure.

The following statement is made in the New York Columbian of Saturday evening last. The part which relates to Mr. Jefferson is particularly interesting; it has not, we must presume, or ought not to have been hazarded, without a certainty of its correctness. “Every great politician in the Unites States, speaks in terms of unequivocal approbation of the conduct of Governor Clinton in coming out...

The maker of the enclosed Speech, accompanied Lewis & Clark when he was an uneducated boy, over the Rocky Mountains. The sentiments contained in it, are so much like your own, that a person unknown to you, is tempted to forward it to you, and it is without mr L s knowledge. I ought perhaps to add, that he accompanied the party of Pryor with the Mandane Chief up the Missouri afterwards, and...

Sonnet. to Miss Brooks by a friend What shall I, maiden, to thee Say, Thou Art, so full of life; so gay; ’Twere Sui, to check thy mirth; By musty l aws, or sermons long; And yet, in spite of Mirth, or Song Thou must, with all the sprightly throng; Descend, to mother Earth. Yet, let not this, your spirits chill; All, must obey dame Nature’s Will; But whilst you still, have Youth; Make choice,...
