Mr. Editor : There is no higher and
moi c fole mil eritpemcnl into which nen
ran en'er, than that of the marriagr r old -lion,
nlthough prectioiilly it is regarded ns
nneof ordinary imporlam e. Too fi eijuenl
ly it is a question r.f hrlgi.iti Mid side, en
ered into from motives of policy in the
acquisition nf w ealth, or distinction. The
solemtu'y of the matrimon al cnnirnrt. be
comrs doubly apparent when we consider
he obligations and duties incumbent upon
men nnd women as pnretts, nnd i the in
structors of that peneratinn whicli is rap
idly following them. nnd lo vvliii h must soon
be Ir; nsferrcd, their resjxnsibiiitirs nnd
duties as citizens, and members of the so
cial orgniiizttlion in which they may live.
If w e plnnce around us upon the great
mulii nde of mankind, we see many im
properly connected families. There are
many excellent women linked to miserable,
worthless, urrompariionnble husbands.
And numerous good men may be found
united to women, in no way suitable to net
in the relation of trtis. These facts, in
deed, present the most inseparable oi.Ticul
ly lo the manner of educating children,
heretofore pointed cut. Il.uinoiiy be-
Ivveen, nnd the good example of the pa
rents arc indespensable pre-rcquisifes ta
the proper culture of the offspring. If
the seed of ius'ruc'ion be choked by the
thorns and brumbies of a pernicious exam
ple, it ctm produce no fruit. This is one
of those laws perulir.r to human nature,
which should receive the spcciul attention
of the parent. All contention nnd dis
cord between husband rnd wife should
also be carefully avoided ; this can only
I be accomplished by placing the matrimo
nial connection upon a different basis
Love or U'eclion is supposed to precede
marriage, hut upon what dors love rest ?
What is love? I answer that love is a
sentiment, that to be permanent muit re
pose upon a j.crceptin, a mutual percep
tion of the v irtue in both parlies. A xm
etry of form, a beauty of countenance, a
felicity of action, may, indeed, throw o
round Us object an additional charm, but
these hitter qualities are fieetii g, transito
ry, rvascent, and urdess il repose upon
a just conception of each other's worth
upon a know ledge of each others disposi
tion, mutually to bear up against the "his
to which flesh is heir," and to strew the
rugged pathway of hTe w ith the flowers
of kindness, and forbcarer.ee, it will pass
away like an evetntg sui.bev.re, and leave
long t hick t ight of tic-mi stio misery to
follow. Lis the psrlof the good top
