THE ORPHAN CHILD. FROM THE GERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845
THE ORPHAN CHILD. FROM THE GERMAN. Where o'er a wood the moonbeams shone, A little child lny all alone A hapless orphan child. " O God," he cried, " if thou forsake, My trembling heart will surely break I With thirst I burn, I faint with want, And fear and grief my footsteps haunt Along this pathway wild ; My scanty garments keep me ill From the sharp night wind's withering chill; And, reft of home and kindred, where To rest his head, or whither fare, Knows not thc orphan child." Thus spoke thc child, and moaned and wept ; Then 'neath thc pallid moonbeams slept. An angel's band it was that shed The dews of slumber o'er his head. And when he woke the night was gone ; Hunger and grief away had flown From that poor orphan child. For the kind Father from above Had called him to thc land of love, And there, where love with light entwines, 'Mid angel choirs bc sings and shines Thin happy orphan child. Vf. L. A.

JEWISH LITERARY & SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845
JEWISH LITERARY & SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTION. WE recently mentioned the establishment of a literary and scientific institution in London, by some leading1 individuals of tho Hebrew community. The inaugural discourse de- livered on that occasion by tho Hov. Mr. J. Uaphall, M. A., Ph. Dr. was of an eloquent and interesting character, and wo only re- gret that its length does not allow its inser- tion in our columns.
