Thou did'st not Irate fair Albion's shore, (Perhaps to visit it no more,) Without a 'sister's tear, Fall many a tear «f grief she wept, And waken'd many. a sigh that slept, For one lo her so dear. Thou did'st not leave thy native land, To wander on a foreign strand, Without a sister's prayer, Oh no ! new orisons ascend, Each day to our Parental Friend, For his protecting care. III. Nor think that now green Ocean'-s breatt, Recieves in phantom form imprest, . . The bark which bear* thee hence, That sbe'H forget the farewell day, Or low thee less, though far away, On water's wide expanse. . ;? , ^ iv.

And pearls and costly bracelets deck Her round white arms and lovely neck. . Like -summer's sky, with stats bedight, ? . The jewelled robe around her-; And daziing as the noontide tight I The radiant zone that bound nbr : ? And pride and joy were in her eye, ? And mortals bowed as she passed by. ? Another came ; o'er her mild face ? A pensive shade. was stealing; H Yet there no grief of earth w« trace, ? ' Cut that deep holy feeling - H 'Which mourns the heart should ever stray H From the pare fount of Truth away. H Around her brow a snbw-drep fair, H ' The glossy treste.t cluster, ; H Nor pearl, nor ornament was there, ^1 Save the meek spirit's lustre ; ? H And faith and hope beamed from her eye, ? And angels bowed as she passed by.

Since it has become the fashion to treat largely upon the political affairs of Europe, we will venture to observe, en passant, that the cry of the alarmists is futile, is very vain,   they assert that Britain, the Queen of the Seas, the Mistress of Nations, that pre-emi- nently great Nation who holds in her bands the destinies of nearly the whole world— they would have the Public to believe that she is weakened, that she has degenerated, that her amazing and gigantic efforts have so far prostrated ...
