A FEW of the productions now brought before the public were intended for the use of a School; but the greater part arose from the impulse of the moment, at intervals of relaxation from such domestic entployments, as the circumstances of the writér, and her parents, rendered indispensable. Most of them were written when she was very young, and; with the exception of two or three short-pieces, the whole, before she had attained the age of twenty-three years.
