Mrs. Pease is the wife of the engraver of that name, and a resident of Philadelphia. She has published in the magazines and annuals, within the last two or three years, some very beautiful poems and stories, which have attracted attention, and which show her to be capable of taking a high position as a writer. The extract which follows is from “The Captives,” a story that appeared in the “Snow Flake” for 1850.
