Dryburgh Abbey by Slooulight POETICAL, 'Tw-as mora—but not the ray which falls the summer boughs among, $ < , When beauty walks in gladness forth with all herJight and song; 'Twaa mem—but mist and cloud hung deep ¦ upon the lonely vale, And shadows like the wings of death, were cast upon the gale. For he whose spirit woke the dust of nations into life, That o'er tie waste and barren earth spread flowers and fruitage rife,-Whose genitls, like lhe sun, illumined the mighiy realms of mind-Had fled forever from the' fame, love, friendship of mankind. To wear a wreathe in glory wrought, nis spirit swept.afar, Beyond the soaring wing of thought, the light of moon or star; To drink immortal waters, free troth every taint of earth, To breathe, before the shrine of life, the source whence worlds had'birthi There was wailing on the eirly breeze, and darkness in the-sky, When, Wilh sable plmnc, nnd cloak, and' pall, a funeral train swept by; Alethonghl—St. Mary shield us well!...

MifcJUELLANEO-JS, «J.e_-_-_ry laud. ... BY _'REDE_1__ BREMER,. There was once a poor and plain little girl, dwelling in a little room in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. She was a poor little girl indeed then ; she was neglected, and would have been very unhappy, deprived of the kindness and care so necessary to a child, if it had not been lor a peculiar gift. The little girl had a fine voice, and in her loneliness, in trouble or iff sorrow, sh^ consoled herself by singing. In fact she sung to all she did; at her work, at her play, running or resting, she always sang. The woman who had her in care went out to work during the day, and used to! lock in the little girl, who had nothing to enliven her Solitude but the company of a cat. The little girl played with her cat and sang. Once she sat by the open window and stroked her cat and sang, when a lady passed by. She heard a voice, and looked up and saw the little singer. She asked the child several questions, went away, and cam...

Tlioughls and iScutiuiei-ts. lo err on the side of feeling and humanity, i. never a disgrace. I-cnjamin Franklin very quaintly remarked thai, "ll wus uiui-r peepie s cj-ca airai ruined us." Ono victory over one's self is worth ten thousand over others. Envy and Cavilling are powerless against tiuc virtue. A rushlight may be blown out but not a sun. Th. world, now-a-days, never believes praise lo be sincere; men are so accustomed to hunt for faults, lhat they will not think any person can honestly expiess unm.ngled admiration. Sly notions about life (soys Southey,) are much 4he same as they ate about travelling! —there is a good deal of amusement on the road, but, after all, one wanls lo be at lest. The mass ol mankind hate innovation: they hate lo unlearn what they have learned wrong, and they hale to confess their ignorance by submitting lo learn anything right. It is a fearful, if u delightful thing, to loot, on the face of a new-bom infant, and feel th&t sorrow must...
