If In The World Of Matter, Singular, And...
It Is self-evident that when those who profess Christianity still act towards women as if the Gospel had never been made known
, that they are more inconsistent than were they of olden times , some of whom even then accorded honor to the sex now unheard
of . When men assure women that doubtless in heaven they will lead angelic choirsand in the same breath tell them " that they are
not at all sure of its , being the right thing for them to play organs on earth , at least in churches / ' ( in the streets they may if they like , )
the absurdity is perfect . We cordially agree with our learned friend , who , in his defence of
us , says , " Discourses against women are the works of superficial men , whoseeing that in general they understand nothing but household
business , , which is commonly the only thing they are instructed in or employed aboutare apt to Infer from thence that they are unfit
for , or incapable of , , any other matter . The most shallow logician knows that it is not a valid conclusion to supposethat because a
, person forbears to do an act that he is unable to do it , and therefore from women In general knowing no more it cannot be inferred
that they have not talents to comprehend more . Nobody understands radically and well more than the matter he has studied ; but
you cannot deduce from thence , without incurring the charge o £ barbarism , that his ability extends no farther . "

One within , in a criinson glow , Silently sitting :
One without , o ' er the fallen snow , Wearily flitting :
Never to know That one looked out with yearning sighs
While one looked in with wistful eyes , , And went unwitting .
What came of the one without that so Wearily wended ?
Under the stars and under the snow , Her journey ended !
Never to know That the answer came to those wistful eyes
And passed away in those yearning sighs , ,
With night winds blended .
