I lore the West, when parting day
Fades from the horizon away;
I love the flower that dies in Spring,
And every frail and fleeting thing,
Then oft amid the altered scene,
I lore to think that they have been.
How swet those hopes forever fled!
Distrust has entered in their stead
The friendly tie was doomed to sever
One link is broke and lost forever;
And yet that golden silken chain,
Shall round my 'heart of hearts1 remain.
O'er some antique and ruin'd tour,
The vine may weave its greenest bower,
And oft the sweetest songs we hear,
From olden trees decayed and sere.
So happy days, now past and gone.
Shall memory love to dwell upon.
This heart, tho' crossed by wounded pride,
Is blithe to all the worl J besides.
And yet, whene'er I think of thee,
Tis cold and silent as the sea.
There love the omen-cloud will keep,
Like Stormy Petrel on the deep.
I must not chide thy fair pretence.
Or charge thee with indifference;
The emanations of whosa mind,
Are winning oft, but oft unkind.
I may but cull the flowers of spring,
And weep thee o'er their withering.

MISS E. LESLIE will have a contribu

The Only Magazine in this country intend
ed for the perusal of Females that is edited
by their own sex.
This is an important matter that should
be borne in mind by those mothers who in
tend catering for their own, or their daugh
ter's instruction and amusement.
One Original large sized Steel Engraving, by
A. L. Dick, in each number.
A Fashion plate, colored, (mark that) every
Two pages (generally original) Music in each
Forty eight pages reading matter.
The same attention to this department will
be displayed. Those splendid Steel Engrav
ings, by A. L. Dick,Fsq., that gave so much
satisfaction last volume, will be continued.
Throughout this year, the plates will be
varied, and embrace serious anJ pleasing
subjects, and others that will contain a dash
of humour. All tastes shall be consulted.
Engraving from the paintings of LanJseer
and Collins, two of the most cminet painters
of London, will from time to time grace our
Book, and as soon as arrangements can be
completed, our long cherished plan of ori
ginal engraving, from paintings originally pre
pared for the Book, will be given, one in
each number. Two are now in preparation.
Our means gives us the opportunity of em
barking in this expensive speculation we
may fail in being remunerated for our outlay,
but our subscribers will be benefited.
We give twice as many embelishments as
any other Magazine, and each plate is, be
cause we pay more for its engravings, supe
rior to the one of any contemporary, and
yet the price of the Magazine is not increas
ed. Our edition is immence, double any
other publication, therefore we are enabled
to go to a greater expense than any other
publisher. A better return may therefore
be expected for the price paid for subscrip
tions. The voice of the public press has pro
nounced Godey's Lady's Book at the head
of the periodical Literature of the country,
and he is determined that it shall retain us
proud superiority. With this view he has
chosen for its conductors two of the most
eminent female writers of this or any other
country Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Sigourney,

In speaking of our engraving, we beg leave
to call attentions to the following published
in last volume, viz:
View of Constantinople,
Schuylkill Water Works.
The Indian Maid.
Happy as a king.
The Death of Liuth.
With each of these was published a Fash
ion plate, containing either three or four fig
ures beautifully and tastefully coloured.
Universally pronounced superior to any
other Magazine illustrations in this or any
other country. Beautiful as they undoubt
edly are, we pronounce, without" hesitation,
that those for this year shall be superior.
The engravings shall always be worth more
than the price of subscription. We do not,
as many of our contemporaries do, who
would scorn to tell a verbal falsehood, pass
ofT second hand plates as original. Ours are
undoubtedly so, and the designs selected bv
ourselves, and they will be continued through
out the year.

Lady's Book is probably the most proper

The Literary Department is placed under
the superintendence of Mrs. Sarah J. Hale

known to the world, that to mention their
names in connection w ith any, publication

will doubt, and the proprietor mentions with
pleasure that no English or American Maea
