A Fill CM). Let adverse winds around us blow, And fortune's frowns attend; But deep despair we ne'er shall know. Whilst earth affords a friend. When all our brightest hopes depart, And life's best prospects end, There's nothiug that can cheer the heart, Like wisdom and a friend. In friendship many joys we find, Yet friendship sorrow sends; For gloomy grief o'erwhelms the mind, In parting with our friends. Besides an insult has its stin" O When enemies contend; But insults double anguish, bring, When coming from a friend.

The ostensible cause of the difference between the Sublime Porte and the British Envoy is so trival that nothing but a previous and significant coldness nothing less than a conviction that the interests, or at any rate the forces of the two nations are about to come in collision, could have magnified it in to the occasion of a national quarrel.
