youth would love, f have seen her in the midst
of gayety; witb,a dijaple on her cheek, snd a
playfulness in her manner, uhich infused its
influence on those around her Many an eye at
such times was turned ; upon her with delight,
and many a rnemoiy firquenUy called u,i to
mind the smile thatlpfayed upon her counten
ance when directed towards him. She was at
such times in her proper sphere, for the whole
cast off her character then beamed foith : it spok
in piayiui throw ot a well turned aron; in the
graceful muvemenl of a sylph like form ; aod in
the tneriy step of a pretty fool. Yet, v. iih a ha
tural volatility, she possessed a noblf and gen
erous heart. In her intercourse with society it
was her intention to pursue a ccrrrct and honor
able course. But she Knew not heiself.
The winning grace of beauty, the smile of
gayety, and the ppwr of fashion, never failed
to draw admirers ajrund the form of women.
Eliza Murray knew the truth of this; she felt
ihe full forco of her ajUractionts; she could read

Dancing alone, then in the bey-day of hr
conquest, she had still felt at times the influ
ence wmcn passion is ever exerting oeros.
Among the many suitors which, appeared ne
fore her, Henry England! was all that '.he young
maiden could desire. He saw Eliza Murray,
gay, beautiful and a tractive, possessing with
all her volatility, reritleness in her manner, a
swejiess of temper, buoyance of fancy, and
ease in conversation whirh he admired. He
offered himself among ihe list of suitors for her
hand. .With the true spirit of an honorable
courtship, he unfolded to her his circumstances,
his, prdsJS and his p.ii tore hopes; desired an
intimate -knowT&tkre, (wiiling- that acquaintance
should bkis-witn to frienifsin, and ripen into love.
She, with tne arcent color wnicn lemaie rancy

character of a suitor dwelt uponlhe candid
manner in which he hdl !.an folded his purposes,

wrong, but he will forjrve me, and moving at a

merrily away with the exclamation, he cannot

declares, ' I may a3 well get drunk on rum
as on fermented liquors." The insinuation
contained in this declaration is, cold-watermen
become intoxicated on wine, beer, ci
der, &c. Every one acquainted with tern
perauce men. knows that this insinuation is
generally, if not universally, false. But if this
were the facts, we all know that it would
not palliate in the least, the drunkard's crime
of intoxication One man becoming a
drunkard does not justify another's intem
perance, any more than one min becoming
a thief justifies another in stealing. But is
it true that to get drunk on distilled liquor
is .no wor'e than than to get drunk ion that
which 13 fermented ? In ardent spirits there
is no redeeming quality. It ha3 in it no
thing notirshing or refreshing to strengthen
or revive its victim; nor even tartness to
neutralize its alcohol in the least. The sys

in it a nourishment, and whose acidity
neutralizes, in a measure, the destructive

ened and refreshed in a degree, by that
whir h produces the intoxication. Hence, to
become inebriated on ardent spirits Ts more
injurious to the body than it would he to
become equally so on fertiented hq'iors.
The example of him whp gets drunk on
this 'nefarious poison, is the more danger

MEETING TO VINDICATE THE
CHARACTER OF JEFFERSON. ;
At a very numerous meeting of the peo
ple of Albemarle at theirCourt-house, in
Charlottesville, fiff the Sd of August, 1840,
(being court day,) held pursuanrto the call
made by a preliminary meeting of July 18th,
in order to consider a recent publication in
ihe (Philadelphia) Episcopal Recorder, re
flecting upon Thomas Jefferson
The assembly was called to order by Gen.
Wm. F. Gordon, who briefly recited the
wrong dons by the aforementioned publica
tion to the merce ry of Mr. Jtff.rson, and
to the henple of his county, in ascribing to
them feelings utterly at-war with the rever
ence which they cherish for him, and sug
gested the tone and character of the vindi
cation that oecame them. Then, on the
motion of Gen. -Ch,-Col. N. Bramham wa?
called to the Chair, and Mr. Luctan Minor
Mr. Wm. C. Rives, as Chairman of thi
Committee of Twenty-one, appointed at the
preliminary meeting., then reported the fol
lowing preamble and resolution, which werej
unanimously adopted by the mcetirig, viz.
The citizens of Albemarle, here assem
bled, have seen, with deep and painful re
gret, certain strictures on the character and
memory of Mr.-Jefjfers)3 contained in a
letter of ihe Rev. S. 1J. Tyng, written from

WANT OF COURTESY A FAULT IN

arisen from the general qualit) of rights, cob.

from that maavaise Iumte or slyness, char
