We have not yet spoken of Margaret as the representative of woman. Nor can we, in these limits, allude to what she said, and what she strove to do, to vindicate the honor of her sex. We cannot close, however, without quoting the lines of the celebrated Walter Savage Landor. Her husband, the Marquis Ossoli, was captain of the Civic Guard during the Italian revolution, in 1848, and was not only a, Roman noble, but, what is much higher, a noble Roman.
Music high, and deep, and broad,
Making melody to God!
World of sight and world of sound,
Close that clasp the earth around,
These exalted ones discern,
And with heavenly ardor burn.’
