No will-o'-th'-wisp mislight thee ;
Nor snake, nor slow-worm,

bite thee;
But on, on thy way,

Not making a stay,
Since ghost there's none to affright thee!
Let not the dark thee cumber;
What though the moon does slumber

The stars of the night

Will lend thee their light,
Like tapers clear, without number !
Then, Emma, let me woo thee,
Thus, thus, to come unto me ;

And, when I shall meet

Thy silv'ry feet,
My soul I'll pour unto thee.

R. HERRICK.

THE WHISTLER TO JEANIE.

“Oh ye unhappy boy,” said Jeanie,“ do ye ken what will come o' ye when

ye die ?"

I shall feel neither cauld nor hunger more," said the youth.

TALES OF MY LANDLORD, SECOND SERIES.

Oh, wipe the pure tear-drop that stands in your eye,
And lament not a being so reckless as I:
My years have passed blithely 'mid hunger and pain,
And, if fate were consenting, I'd live them again!
When in peace the mild peasant retires to his bed,
I feel the bleak storm on my shelterless head;
And the blast of the desert has pierced to my soul,
Whilst the cares of the rustic were drowned in his bowl.
Yet still, though an outcast, and friendless I rove,
These haunts that my childhood have succour'd, I love ;
And the bloom on the mountain-the murmuring river,
Shall flourish and flow in my fancy, for ever.
I have stood on yon height the first dawning to hail,,
Whilst the mists of the morning o'ershadow'd the vale ;
And the rays that I felt on my bosom descend,
Went warm to my heart, like the smile of a friend ;

And there have I stood, while the moon shone on high,
And pour’d her thin light o'er the sea and the sky;
When the breeze was so soft, and the air was so clear,
That mine eyes have flow'd fast, when no sorrow was near.
Though want, which you feel not, has still been my

foe,
My joys have been such as no peasant can know;
Then come death, I shrink not! these joys will be o'er,
But I then shall feel pain, cold, and hunger no more.

P. 9.

EQUITY OF PROVIDENCE.

Fortune her gifts may variously dispose,
And these be happy called-happy those ;
But heaven's just balance equally will appear,
While those are placed in hope—these in fear.

It has been said, and, we have no doubt, truly, that the weakest even of human creatures, have it much in their power to do measureless mischief, if they but as resolutely as unworthily determine to do as much as they can ;-while the power of doing good is limited, even where the means of wealth and the prompting qualities of the heart, are all on the side of virtue. It is obvious, therefore, that no difficulty exists in becoming vicious, nor in continuing sotemptations to error are constantly before us but where error, from a principle of goodness, is avoided, though only an individual benefit should be its apparent result, yet is that individual an ornament and a blessing to society; inasmuch, as example will ever be found more powerful upon the actions of the many, than precept. With the means and the disposition to meliorate the condition of those in circumstances beneath us, insuperable are the obstacles which present themselves to an objeet so benevolently disposed-he is instantly singled as a target
