Nature never did betray the soul that loved
her; and nature tells men to marry; Just as
the young man is entering upou lifejust as he
comes to independance and man's estate ljust
as the'erisis of his being is to be sol fed, aud it
is to. be seen Whether he decides with the good;
t e rva t i: nd he jr tjr-whetlijr he . will si nk
and be lost forever- matHmbiiy gtVts hini bal
last and right impulse. War with nature and
she takes a sure revenge, lell a young man
not to have an attachment that is virtuous, and
he will have one
love, the 1
onest love of a man for the woman
he ir about to marry gives him an anchor for
his heart; something pure and beautiful for
which to labor and live.
Andjthe woman, what a purple light it
sheds upon her path; it makes life for her no
day dream, nO idle hbur.no painted shadow,
no passing shdw; but something real, earnest,
tr-brlhv of her heart arid head. Iut most of us
arc cowards, and Uare not hinv so? we iacK
grac; we are bf little laiFll; ouHnward eye iS
dim and dark. The modern young lady must
many in style; the , modern young gentleman
marrieS a fortune. But in the meanwhile tht
girl grows into an bid maid, and the" youth' be-
comes a man about; town, a man whom it is
dangerous to ask into your house, for his'"bnsi
ness is intrigue The world might heve had a
happy ctftiple) instead, it gets a woman fretful;
nervous, fanciful, a plague to all around her.
He becomes a sceptic in all virtue; a eor
ruptor of the youth jf both sexesj a curse in
whateter domestib firclfe he peneti-ates,. i '"Even
worse may result. She may be deceived and
may die of a broken heart , '
He may rush "from one v folly to - another as
sociate onlj with the vicious and depraved;
bring disgrace rind sorrow on himself and all
around, and sink into an early grave. Our
rreat cities show what becomes of men and
women that do not
marry. Worldly fathers
ih eir , .sir.is no tlon) a rr
until they can afford
to support a wife; ahd the
bos expend double the amount iu low compa
ny Hence it is, all
wise men (like Franklin)
advocate earlyj marriages; and that all our
gi'eut men, with rare exceptions, have married
young. Wordswort i had only -one hundred
pounds a year whbri he first tuarrietl; Lord
Eldou was so poor that he had to go to Clare
inarkct, Loudon, to buy sprats for supper.
Coleridge aud Southey we can't find had any
income at all at the tim ; of 4 tlicir marriage-'
We question whether jLtithei at any time
had mbre than Sfty
pounds a year. We blast
huihauity. in its veryj
dawn. Fathers, you say
you teach your sons
thing; your worldly
ready ruined for life
farb-tablc, and at
prudence you do nb such
wise and clever son is al-
Ybti will find him at the
free-love circles. You
wretched worldly wisdom taught him tb avoid
the snare of marrying voting, and soon if he Is
not hiyoived in embarrassments which will last
him a life-tii:ie he .is" a blaze fellow heartless
false without a single generous sentiment or
manly aim ; he has -"
