Poking fun at “new” Female Society

Massachusetts Female Emancipation Society’   We have received, from the Recording Secretary of this  ‘new organized’ association, an account of its formation, a list of its officers, and a statement of its objects.   The manuscript is so perfectly neat and plain, that we can hardly resist the temptation to place it in the hands of the compositor; but, in the present state  of our columns, we can hardly afford room to herald a society whose object it is to pick our own eyes out.  We think it is not over modest in them to ask it.  The document, therefore, lies on the table, according to editorial and parliamentary usage.
