"Vice is a monster of so frightful

mien,

As, to be hated, needs but to be seen;

Yet seen too oft, familiar with her
face,

We first endure, then pity, then
embrace."
Pope.

The wealthy Misses Fielding are conversing with Messrs. Johnson and Hart,

Pronounce your words distinctly.

A most wonderful display of meteors me'te or took place Nov. 13, 1833. A Carolina Carlo lina planter thus describes the effects upon plant'er the slaves on his plantation: “Upplan ta'tion ward of one hundred lay prostrate pros'trate on the ground, some speechless, and bit'ter est some with the bitterest cries implorim plore

ing God to save the world and themim plor'ing selves.” a cute!

The so-called “tendon of Achilles" at the heel is very strong.
