Sleep fearless on, the sky is bright.
The tan are beainrng o'er the deep;
The moon affords her gentle lifjht,
AU'i well and cafe, then fearless deep.
' ' There's nanglit the srasib'rera rest to breuh.
Scarcely the winds our while sails swell,
The faithful watch alone must wake.
To tiead tlie deck and sing "all's woll."
Now, now thb gale, it brisker grows,
And higher swells the briny deep.
Swiftly our gallant vessel goes.
All's fair, all's fair, yet fearless sleep.
. Furl yonder sail the wind is strong,
. But yet it does no danger tell,
List, the untiring Watchman's song.
Sleep fearlcft on, for "all is well.
But now the stars grow dim and pale,
t ; The moon lias left the low'ringsky,
; Wake, messmates wake, and furl the sail.
The storm clouds gather thick on high.
. Hark, hark, the thunders deeply sound,
- i A gath'ring tempest, they do (ell;
Bouse, slumb'rers rouse, from res: profound,
. While yet the watch may cry "all's well "
The waves aro dark, and madly rise,
". Our limbors creak, oh, heaven be k'mdl
The vivid lightnings rend the skies.
Like demon shouts, now roars the wind.
Cheerly my messmates, cheerly ho!
. Trust, trust to Him who high doth dwell,
To guard his servants here below.
And fondly hope, all may be well.
Yes, yes, for now the tempest break's.
Lolling the winds, the storm clouds cease;
Yonder, methinks the morning v;akes.
The light is stealing o'er the sky.
- Yon golden streaks proclaim the day.
The sea birds strains, his coming tell,
Cheerly to duty then away,
TTie storm is wearlher'd, and "all's well."
Keading. Ut hll the amusements
that can possibly be imagined for a
hard-working man after his daily toil
or its intervals, there is nothing like
reading an interesting newspaper or
' book. It calls for no bodily exertion
of which he has already had enounh,
or perhaps too much. It relieves his
home of its dullness. It transports
him into a livelier and gayer, and
more diversified &i interes'.iiin scene:
and when be enjoys himself there he
may forget the evils of the present
moment fullv as much as if he were
ever so drunk, with the advuntiire ofi
finding himself the next day with the
money in his pocket, or at bast laid
out in real necessaries :;nJ without
the drunkard's misery of min i and
bod v. Nay, it accompanies him to
his next days's work; and it what he
has been reading be any thing above
the idlest and lightest, it gives him
something to think of besides the
mere mechanical drudgery of his eve
ry day occupation something he
can enjoy while absent, and look for
ward with pleasure to. If J were to
pray for a taste which should stand
me instead, under ever variety ol

Jt has passed into custom to assert
that dress is a matter of. trifling im

to be utterly false. Taste in dress is
universally felt to be the index of a

secured the services of MISS LES-

graphic style, uniting a thorough
knowledge of the subject, with a clear.

Tbe rontrr.ts of Miss Leslie's Alagssisc
will be such as to give it, in this respect, a
decided superiority. No mere revereaee
for numes, will indnce the editor to admit
any article of questionable merit, but eveiy
thing adaiitted will bejadgrd of by ita in
trinsic worth, and nothing can possibly find
a place which will aotbe calculated to pro
mote the eutertainment aud edification of
its readers. ,
. It will scarcely be credited that a Maga
zine, ucb as hs been described, can be af
forded at the low rateef on dollar and fifty
