TO A * * * *
I’ll pass away—l’ll come again.
I’ll pass away like the evening glow
That glimmers stilt on the mountain snow,
And the chilly shade of night will close
My sleeping dust in the dark repose.
I’ll come again on the morning beam.
That wakes my love from the troubled dream—
Aud I’ll gild with joy the trickling tears,
And illume with hope foreboding fears.
I’ll fade and fall like the withered tree
Aud the tempest’s moan my dirge shall be—
In the sighing breeze I’il come again
And whisper bliss in every pain.
I’ll pass away like the fes'al song;
Ye’ll see me not in the g«alv throng—
But my voice of love shall still be heard
In plaintive notes of the summer b.rd.
I’ll fall and pass like a Hake of snow
Before the sun in its noon-tide glow*—
i’ll come m a drop of vernal shower,
And smile re love from a beam-lit liovver.
I’ll come atrain on a summer cloud,
And robe myself in its fleecy shroud —
Or shining forth in its varied hue,
From the rainbow’s arch, i’ll gaze on you.
I’ll come on the wavelet’s spiral gleam,
.When moon-rays sport on the mountain stream —
i’ll come in the soft Eolian tone,
When the winds the dyinli spring bemoan.
And when in that sadly closing hour
The gloom of death shall round thee lower—
C) then I’d come as a seraph bright,
And fly with thee to our home in light.

Ave-y pleasant way of spending life in l
Bo ido j, is lor a -nan to become an “advertise*!
uncut.,” caber ponpatetlck or statonury. if;
1 the former, he still retains the privilege of a
I mail-like power of locomot o:i, and moves
[along from one end of the street to the other,
encased hi painted, or printed and pasted wood,
announcing to the public the d.scovery of some
certain i preventative against death in every
shape—the superior polish of a certain black
ing—when and where such and such a line ofj
coaches or steamboats leave* town and return.
If stationary, lie takes his place where two
streets form an angle; and there, concealed
between two boards, from morn till night, amid
t.ic giddy whirl and tumult around, he passive
ly exhibits his invaluable statements to tiie pub-,
lie. “ What piece of work is man ! How
noble in reason!—how infinite in faculties!”
etc. etc. The truth is, there is a scarcity of;
blank walls in the business parts of the me- 1
tropolis, and the house-ends contain notices of j
“no bills to be stuck here,” under penalty of
prosecution ; trades-people therefore, who dc-i
pend on glorious announcements, have hit up
on the ingenious device of substituting a man!
fora house-end ; they get him, like Snug, the j
joiner, in the famous tragedy of “ Pyramus l
and Thisbe,” to “ present a wall!” And' he
does “present ” one from sunrise until dark-1
ness relieves and reanimates him, and then, inj
the language of honest Snug, he exclaims, (or
might exclaim) —
“ Thus have I, Wall, mv part discharged so ;
And, being done, this Wall away doth go !”
You sometimes lose sight of the semi-vital pro
perties of those wooden cases. We were pe
rusing one of them the other morning, when
we perceived something oscillating at the top
of the boards in a very singular manner—first!
visible and then invisible. Looking closer, in
order to solve the mystery, we perceived a small
meagre old man woman standing beside the
annoucement, with a piece of bread and a pot
e. HAsaiSJTSB,, paaawaiß & PUEiasiKina,
of someth in ji'hot in her hand, doubtless a sul>-
stitute lor codec, which she ever Ac anon hand
ed in between the boards. It was the adver
tisement taking its breakfast! and every time
it put ti;e bread or codec to its month, the head
disappeared between the boards and then em
erged again. The sight was not altogether lu
dicrous—there was a touch of humanity about
it. The advertisement, it was evident, was
not wholly without sympathy —it hud its ties
and relationships. Amid the thousands and
thousands that passed it through the long dry,
w ithout a thought, there was still that small
meagre figure coming, creeping through inter
minable streets, to administer to its necessities;
stil someone to stir the fire for it, (if coals were
not too dear,) when it went home at evening.
It was yet a few degrees superior to actual
wood, or brick and mortar.
But it went an endless* and, in many n>-
jpects, irksome task to attempt to sketch the
unherd of shifts, and strange menus jesorttd
to for a livelihood in London. Really some
of them are almost sufficient to stagger the
faith in the virtue of our existing social laws
and covenants. True is the proverb that “ or.e
half tire world knows not how the other lives.”
And melancholy it is to think that while
grinding povortv compete some to resort to
v.ich p'unfully-lndiciQJs schemes for the pro
longation of an unattractive existence, others,
blessed win the most ample worldly means for
their own enjoyment, and the diffusion ol good
to others, should be cur. ed with irrational fan
cies, which placet them even lower in the scale
of creation than unman advertisements.
Next to man himself, no class of animals
presents the inequalities of existence so forci
bly and dramatically as the horse. What a
feeling contrast is exhibited between the proud
racer—the imbodiment of speed and vigour—
and the poor superanuated, attenuated occu
pant of the sand-cart —the very image of pa
tient misery, waiting death. Nearly all the in
termediate classes are to be met with, in and
about Loudon, save and except the enduring,
strong-boned, though not handsome hunter —
the sort of horse that will carry fourteen stone
for half a day, over the hedges and ditches of a
ploughed country. It must cIo the eye of an.
artist good—u Landseer, a Cooper, or a Ci»a
--lon —to stroll about the west end of the town,
and no.c the suj erb specimens of this animal
to be met with in all directions. In greatest
profusion come’ the stately carrriage-horses,
bright bays with black legs, and skins of the
texture of velvet. High-fed, pampered min
ions! how proud they look as they feel the
slight check of the reins, and draw themselves
up. I low aristocrat icaliv they glance towards
the passing cribs ! and how very perfect is tl e
union of beauty and power in their large frames.
A race-hor.se and a hunter always look a shade
too spare when in proper trim ; but these car
riage-horses, though distinguished by the ab
sence of all superfluous fieshness, present not a
single angular point to ofiend the eye of the
most fastidious. They are in the exact state
for the free, though not extreme, development
of muscular power. Twin come the gentle
men’s riding-horses, slighter and with more oi
blood, and, consequently, speed and fire about
them ; the ladies’ pads, small and delicate, and
graceful as their riders; the cab-draggcr, ani
mals that have an air of faded gentility about
them—horses that have, evidently seen better
days, and still retain some points of breeding,
but who have been debased and corrupted in
consequence of their mode of life, and the
keeping of low company —to wit, that of their
drivers. Still lower in the scale, sleeping on
their stands, and indulging in imaginary vis
ions of food, stand, “ misery’s playfellows,” the
wretched anatomies, who eat about once a
week, and drain out the dregs of existence in
the service of old fiery-visaged, gin-drinking
hackney-coachmen—creatures physically in as
bad condition as their horses, and morally a
great deal w orse.
Again ; there, perhaps, exists not a greater
contrast in animal existence—not even between
the lank, dinnerless, threadbare author, reject
ed of publishers, and in debt to his landlady,
and the oily, luxurious, turtle-fed alderman—-
than is presented by those said hacks and the
plethoric London drav-horses, particularly
those attached to the large breweries. These
