THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 December 1840
THE CABINET. O luxury I Bane of elated life, of affluent states, What dreary change, what ruin is not thine? How doth thy bowl intoxicate the mind I To the soft entrance of thy rosy cave How dost thou lure the fortunate and great I Dreadful attraction I while behind thee gapes Th' unfathomable gulf where Asshur lies O'erwhclined, forgotten, and'high-boasting Cham, And Elam's ha-*-*- "' * " And the great &lt; And Elam's haughty pomp, and beauteous Greece, peat queen of earth, imperial Rome.

THE SONG OF THE FIRE-KING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 December 1840
THE SONG OF THE FIRE-KING. Spirits of fire 1 spirits of fire 1 , _ " . Kindle your torches, and up with me j Earth to-night shall yield the pyre That lightens our red-red revelry. Water shall hiss in our hot embrace I Stone shall snap with each burning kiss I The morrow shall wonder much to trace So wild a scene of ruin as this. Now to the banquet I wine ne'er shone Bright as the fiery draught we drain ; Gilded wood and chisel'd stone Are the viands that feast our flame-born train. Cracklo the wood 1 shiver the block I Moulder the silken work of the loom I Water ! water 1 thy power we mock, Swallow it up in the general doom I Flutter your wings, and send up on high Sparkles of laughter 1 again 1 again ! Dim with their light the stars in the sky, Cast them to earth like Gomorrah's rain 1 The red blood of mortals dyes the stream, That flows where the battle is fierce and strong; Tinge, then, each white cloud above with their gleam ; To herald our conquest whilst floating along. Spirit...

OPIUM—OPIUM-EATERS—THE OPIUM-TRADE WITH CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 December 1840
OPIUM-OPIUM-EATERS-THE OPIUM-TRADE WITH CHINA. Besides the various inebriating liquids obtained by fermentation, and whose properties depend chiefly on the spirit of wine which they contain, there is a second class of stimulants whose narcotic properties do not depend upon any conversion of saccharine into spirituous matters. Opium stands at the head of this class of inebriating drugs. The use of opium is nearly universal from Turkey to China, and the enor- mous quantity consumed in the latter country is an evidence that the taste for this narcotic does not depend on the prohibition of wine to the followers of Maho- med. Even in Mussulman countries the interdict of the Prophet is little regarded by those who can obtain a supply of wino or brandy, and all classes, from the Sultan to the rayah, appear to relish fermented liquors. The use of opium, however, appears to be more in accordance with the habits of tho Orientals, little given to social pleasures, and choosing rather to he ine...
