ORIGINAL POETRY. -THE BUST STOEM. Down from the sphere of air, Sweeping in wild despair ;Here, there, ^td everywhere, .The troubled wind hies. Up from the earth below, Dense as an Alpine snow All in a .fiery glow, The cloud of dust flies. Like to the battle smoke, When in array are woke In-n months which have spoke Terror and death, .Sfhirlwind of atoms fly J3ohn-ling towards the sky, Pilling each crevice, nigh ' 'Stopping our breath. * Eyes, mouth, and nostrils filled Perchance with the soil we till'd. Or clay with which some do build Their domiciles. Fast' through the murky haze Travellers wend their ways Blindly, afraid to gaze, Groping for miles. See yonder man of airs, What a dignified look he wears, Strutting along,' nor cares Aught for the idust. When, Oh! jrhat so mortifying, Off pops his hat, flying After it follow^ crying, Catch%ifli must. Then the maid of so modest mien, Shoppii^ ^bte just has been, - Afraid anyone has' seen The feeling &at rankles her bosom, ntat...
