EY CKACE WEBSTER HINSDALE
Thou giv’st me but thy- cheek—a year ago
Thy glowing lip was pressed to mine; in
I seek the fulness of thy love again!
No reason do I ask that I may know-
W hy coldly thus thou meet'st my kiss: I go
Front thy dear side, and leave thee free to
One who may surer win thy fond caress.
I will not wait to check the richer flow
Thou couldst not lavish on my hungry heart,
Nor will I stay the jealous watch to keep
My love would prompt, if lingering where thou
Give now thy best to one who dares to reap
Such golden field—forev.r more I part
My life from thine, that I, alone, may weep.
0 let the soul her slunrbeiS break,
Let thought be quickened, and awake :
Awake to see
How soon this life is past and gone,
And death comes softly stealing on,
Swiftly our pleasure glide away,
Our heaits recall the distant day
With many sighs;
The moments that are speeding first
We heed not, but the past,—the past,—
Mui tJ JTT j BO I - —
Onward its course the present keeps,
Onward the constant current sweeps,
Till life is done;
And, did we judge of time aright,
The past and futuie in their flight
Would be as one.
Let no one f <ndly dream again,
That Hope and all her shadowy train
Will not decay;
Fleeting' as were the dreams of oid,
Remembered like a tale that’s told,
They pass away.
Our lives are rivers, gliding free
othat unfathomed, boundless sea,
The silent grave !
Thither all earthly pomp and boast
Roll, to be swallowed up and lost
In one dark wave.
Thither the mighty torrents stray,
Thither the brook pursues its way,
And tinkling rill.
There all are equal. Side by side
1 he poor man and the son of pride
Lie. calm and still.

1 not here invoke the throng
Of orators and sons of song,
Fiction entices and deceives,
And, sprinkled o’er her fragrant leaves,
Lies poisonous dew.
To One alone my thoughts arise,
he Eternal Truth,—the Good an Wise,—*
o Him 1 cry,
Who shared on earth our common lot,
But the world comprehended not
This w r J is but the rugged road
Whic 1 tends us to the bright abjdo
Of peace above;
So let us choose that narrow way,
Which loads no traveller's foot astray
Fiom realms of love.
Our cradle is the starting-place,
In life we run the onward .race,
And reach the goal;
When, in the mansions of the blest,
Death leaves to it3 eternal rest
The weary sonI.
Did we but use it as we ought,
This world would school each wondering
To its high state.
aith wings the soul beyond the sky,
Up to that better world on high,
For which we wait.
Yes,—the glad messenger of love,
To guide us to our home above,
The Saviour came ;
Born amid mortal cares and fears,
lie suffered iu this vale of tears
A death of shame.
Behold of what delusive worth
The bubbles we pursue on earth,
The shapes we chase,
Amid a world of treachery !
They vanish ere death shuts the eye,
And leave to trace.
Time steals them from us—chances strange,
Disastrous accidents, and change,
That come to all;
Even in the most exalted state,
Relentless sweeps the stroke o( fate ;
The strongest firil.
Tell me,—the charms that lovers seek
In the clear eye and blushing cheek,
The hues that play
O’er rosy lip and brow of snow,
When hoary age approaches slow
Ah, where are they ?
The cunning skill, the curious arts,
The glorious strength that youth imparts
In life’s first stage;
Tbc3e^sliall become a heavy weight,
When Time swings wide his outward gate
To weary age.
The noble blood ot Gothic name,
Heroes emblazoned high to fame,
In long array;
How, in the outward course of time,
The landmarks of that race sublime
Were swept away!
Some, the degrade slaves of lust,
Prostrate and trampled in the dust,
Shall rise no more ;
Others, by guilt and crime, maintain,
The scutcheon, that, without a stain,
Their fathers bore.
Wealth and the high estate of pride,
With what untimely speed they glide,
How soon depart!
Bid not the shadowy phantoms stay,
The.vassals of a mistress they,
Of tickle heart
These gilts in Fortune’s hands ;:r_ found,
Her swift revolving wheel turns round,
And they are gone !
No rest the inconstant goddess knows,
But changing, and without rep jse.
Still hurries on.
Even could the hand of avarice s:.vr
Its gilded baubles, till the grave
Reclaimed its prey,
Let none on such poor hopes rely;
Life, like an empty dream, Cits oy,
And where are they ?
Earthly desires and sensual lust
Are passions springing from the dust—
They fade and die ;
But, in the life beyond the tomb.
They seal the immortal spirit's doom
The pleasures and delights, which mask
In treacherous smiles life’s serious task,
What aie they, ail,
But the fleet coursers of the clia-e,
And death an ambush iu the race,
Wherein we fall ?
No foe, no dangerous pass, we heed,
Brook no delay,—but onward speed
With loosened rein;
And, when the fatal snare is near,
We strive to check our mad career,
But strive in vain.
Could we new charms to age hnpart,
And fashion with a cunning art
The human face.
As we can clothe the soul with light,
Aii-a Uo ginrious snirit bright.
With heavenly g r ace,—
How busily each passing hour
Should we exert that magic power.
What ardor show,
To deck the sensual slave of sin.
Yet leave the freeborn sou! within,
In weeds of woe.
A Nice Little Story.—As ple.u-
anl a siory as was ever lold is
this, regarding an Albany, (N. V.)
physician, by a correspondent of the
Port Jefferson Independent Press,
wriling from New Haven :
“An aged widow in Massachu
setts received a telegram that her
only son was dying in Lawrence,
Kansas. Notwithstanding her ex
treme age and feeble heahh she must
see her son. She undertook the
journey. The train was delayed.
When it arrived al Utica she was
taken violently ill. A young physi
cian assisted her to a hotel, and pro
vided ever} thing he could for her
comfort. Her detention by sickness
and moderate means would not al-
