but the foretold apostacies here triumphed over tlie
evangelical truth, and they how groan beneath
Turkish cruelty and despotism. But the fortunes
of Smyrna and Philadelphia have most remarkably
corresponded with the disclosures of the apocalypse.

WHAT CAN WOMEN Dof U
. nf i t . . . n
- h t esjiane-tioi is a queation Ireqnently
profMpmuli d when a woman is hft. either bv thrt
os or mif (rtiinea of her friends, to atrugglo for1,
ncrneir. iat can she do T There are but very
few avenues of business in which women are privi
leged to walk. - The wages paid for female labor!
is very trifling; and when alte has others besides
herself to provide for, it seems almost impoawiblo
inai a woman can succeed, -
But thanks tffthat Being who tempera the wind
to the shorn lamb' -woman has beeu endued with
a patience and perseverance which, when called
forth by the strong afloctions of the heart, over
come all obstacles. Her strength and courage will
rise in proportion to the difficulties which surround
her, and, kept in intense exercise, her love seems,
like tlie fire which the prophet invoked from Lea-,
ven, after the water had been poured upon the sa
crifice, to annihilate every obstacle in her path. '
We have seldom seen the good eflocta of iemaht
enterprise better set forth than in the following
sketches of Western manners and character, which
we extract from tba lutUr of a Boston lady, a friend
uf ours, now residing in Tennessee SIkhiW any
New England woman, feeling that her lot is Kara,
complainingly inquire what can a woman dot
let l r he referred to the examples her sisters in
the West have given, and do all ike can.
Extract from the teller of Miti .
I trut that the time is not far distant when li
terature wilt here have its votaries ; when the ladies
of the West will be as solicitous to obtain new
books from the East, as they seem at present to
obtain the fashions. One meets, in this section of
the country, with many instances of resolution and
perseverance of character, such as should give a
spur to enterprise, embolden the timid, and almost
incline one to believe an assertion made by Dr.
Beecher (at Cincinnati) 'that emiprant$ art ike
bat pdrt of a population. Such instances are to
be found among our sex ; women who have come
hither without means or friends, and managed to
support themselves and families. The dwelling of
a woman was lately pointed out to me, who, with a
family of grand children, UrfL, at tlie age of sixty,

here on foot, support inj; herself on the way by knit-
