qualifications and goodness. She can read fashionable novels and milk 

cows; she can laugh and weep with the same ease that you can take a 

glass of ale; she can make butter, and scold the maid; she can sing 

Moore's melodies, and plait her frills and caps; she cannot make rum, 

gin, or whiskey, but she is a good judge of their quality from long 

experience in tasting them, I therefore offer her, with all her 

perfections and imperfections, for the sum of fifty shillings.'--After 

an hour or two, she was purchased by Henry Mears, a pensioner, for the 

sum of twenty shillings and a Newfoundland dog. The happy pair 

immediately left town together, amidst the shouts and huzzas of the 

multitude, in which they were joined by Thompson, who, with the greatest 

good-humor imaginable, proceeded to put the halter, which his wife had 

taken off, round the neck of his Newfoundland dog, and then proceeded 

to the first public house, where he spent the remainder of the day." 

 

 

PUNISHMENT OF ADULTERY. 

 

As fidelity to the marriage-bed, especially on the part of woman, has 

always been considered as one of the most essential duties of matrimony, 

wise legislators, in order to secure that benefit have annexed 

punishment to the act of adultery; these punishments, however, have 

generally some reference to the manner in which wives were acquired, and 

to the value stamped upon woman by civilization and politeness of 

manners. It is ordained by the Mosaic code, that both the men and the 

women taken in adultery shall be stoned to death; whence it would seem, 

that no more latitude was given to the male than to the female. But this 

is not the case; such an unlimited power of concubinage was given to the 

men, that we may suppose him highly licentious indeed, who could not be 

satisfied therewith, without committing adultery. The Egyptians, among 

whom women were greatly esteemed, had a singular method of punishing 

adulterers of both sexes; they cut off the privy parts of the man, that 

he might never be able to debauch another woman; and the nose of the 

woman, that she might never be the object of temptation to another man. 

 

Punishments nearly of the same nature, and perhaps nearly about the same 

time, were instituted in the East Indies against adulterers; but while 

those of the Egyptians originated from a love of virtue and of their 

woman, those of the Hindoos probably arose from jealousy and revenge. 

It is ordained by the Shaster, that if a man commit adultery with a 

woman of a superior cast, he shall be put to death; if by force he
