6 THE POLYNESIAN. fniE POLYNESIAN. SATURDAY, JUNK 20, 1840. The news by the late papers looks war like. The whole political horizon of the globe appears to be in a state, which would require but a spark to light into one. general war ; and it will certainly re quire great political sagacity in rulers, joined with a strong manifestation of a de sire for peace by the people, to avoid fan ning these exciting causes into a fierce Jlarne. llussia has declared war against Khiva, is assuming n threatening attitude in other quarters, and is still vigorously pushing her operations against Circassia, notwithstanding a late loss of 30,000 men, and at the same time grasping at the British dominions in the East. Egypt and Turkcv are watching each other, rea dy to spring, but held in lcasn by the great powers of Europe. England is fit ting out a vast armament to humble China, which will meet force by force, and thus the two greatest empires will be brought into collision. The naval jealousies be ...

The brcce that whispers low and near, Dome o'er him, like lulliiby, That charm J and sooth'd his childhood's ear. He shuts his eyes, and 6ky nnd sea, Like phantoms from his mind are gone; Spell bound by sleep's soft gramrnarye, He lies in dream land all alone. Alone ! What voice of glad surprise, t ails on hid car like music's tone ? Alone ! What pair of glowing eyes Arc bent so fondly on his own ? A loving arm is round him flung, A warm cheek pressing close to his, Of all the dreams by poets sung, Sure never one was sweet as this ! All doubt is banish 'd from his soul, Lost hopes rewaken from their flight, No winner, panting at the goa', Feels half so unalloyed delight. A sudden thrill runs through his brain; lie start...
