MIL.M'.S.. .LAXDOK....JTL1CS HARE,
fie oliice of Literature is two-fold. It preserves
? igh asea the flowers of life which came to
? bloom in minds of genius. What bloomed
. a day, in the highest epoch.-; of thought or
.?, becomes an amaranth, if translated into
litufe. ? small part of literature has a pcrma
value
"33t the eiTice of the larger psrt is temporary, as
iiidiog the means of interpreting contemporary
-jdstoeach oiher on a larger scale than actual
^ersation in words or deed.-" furnishes. And
ties for success in this class are very dif
?e^iiroin, in home respects opposite 10, those for
~e other.
Excellence in this kind is not to he held lightly.
? no small matter to live a full life in the day ? it
what those who live for the ages rarely do.?
who are most geniuses are, very commonly,
a* men, and, take the total growth of a man,
it may well doubt whether an equable expansion
urj harmonious growth of tiie nature is to be sa
aSced to a partial, though exquisite result. What
nidi Ij and pertinently now does its cilice and
:crs the h-art of the world, though i*. may not
.* to posterity ?ith the name of the speaker.?
confess our partiality for those noble men who
I . tou full and vigorous a lite to have time to set
I pad portions of it. Those men whose soul was
? ir eyes, and whose tongue or pen did justice
the occasion as it came. The mistletoe is asa
;cd plant, but we must have oaks before mistletoes.
- well when we have both, when be who fulfils
at life of the day has such a superfluity beside,
?to scatter its seed through a wide future. But
I e oaks grow first, though their fruit be no
. r than the acorn. The common nnd daily
? ses <d" literature are the most important. It
aanot, and will not, dispense with the prophecies
igenius, but the healthy discharge of its func
DJGi must not be disparaged to exalt these.
Thin-, whatever is truly said and forcibly said, is
e in literature as in life, though its preten?
ce be not Ihe highest as to originality of thought
[form. Individuality is sufficient; for every fact
worth knowing-and stating. Only we must not
(well too long on what is temporary, nor give to
that is hut relatively good, absolute praise.
There is 11 class of writers, mid-way between
eniu ea and men of healthy energy merely, who
k very valuable also. They are audience to the
pniiis, interpreter to the multitude, cultivated
for those who need such. I
The writers of this class do not enjoy extensive J
time. They are not poets nor merely active men,
iey may be called in distinction gentle-men and
lekolars. They have not, perhaps, the deep glow
?f rxperience that makes the universal heart thrill
ttheir slight magnetic tokens; they have not the
-.ig?.mii's wand to evoke from the Teaim of shad
ivs forms ilia! in life they have never seen.
Vet tiiey are dchghllul private companions.?
fe are not then lovers nor their worshipers, but
familiar friendship we prize. We would in
raduce them to others that they may lind and be
ad by their own. They need to be thus iitfro
ftced, L>r they do not command fame, nor make
? earth shake with their tread so that all may
mow where to lind them
Several L'nglish writers of this class arc little
known in this country. Their writings arc not re-1
tblished here, because the demand for them }
'oiilu be so limited. Yet .1 would increase if their
?ciks began to circulate. There are, here and
btre, persons who need just this deeper refine
?111 of common gifts, and tind not enough of
Belt s\ rape thy and instruction. To persons of this
ess in v be recommended first?Richard Mouek
nMiined who has published volumes entitled
Posits ok Mast Ylaks,
Memorials of Many SCKfCXS,
Poems, Historical asd LXCESDAXY,

k dramatic phrase of our own land as " setting
Hi riwr on lire," a miracle which the poet is really
tile to work, will never disturb the peace of so
-ety through him. Nuy ! an at all vehement river

ttsely makes none such. He attempts not to pour

They are the higher and gentler moods of

lie power ot transmitting them. YVe have all
>:. in every-day life, persons who had little
iiwer id* describing what they had seen, yet could
atke us see it from the signs of genuine emotion
it had caused in themselves. So it is with
.. Milnes. He points out to us the best books,
:e best pictures, and the best landscapes he has
f?n in his extensive travels and conversations with
; . c 1 books, and we take pleasure in seeing
Tin in his atmosphere. It is a mild atmosphere,
(traded by a pale golden mist.
If many persons culled the best from the hours
'-< they ias.-, with a:iy thing like the same care and
tru ::t, ihe world would be an agreeable world,
cd each puddle would be overarched with a rain
?w more or less bright.
Mr. Milnes has been wittily described as "re
<jy u v iieerful little robin-redbreast of a man."_

BY GREELEY & McELRATH
VOL. IV. *0. 2S2.
Bot though thus late, why should nut thou and L
Before our lives' short season* downward tend.
Renew tbai long-extior-uished memory ;
My falcon-eyed, my fdcoa-heaited Friend .
It is a high vocation, to go out
..'pon the dtedal Earth, and watch the sun
Rite above unknown bills, and wide about
Strange plains extend our sight's dominion :
Through scenes, which 19 the habitants of eacli
Are world? distinct, as if they planati were,
And ever-varying moods oi garb and speech,
To pass light-winged, and free as birds of air:
To lire whole years in some short span of days?
To feel new wisdom falling, like a dew,
Upon our passive '.emples, and the maze
Of life unravel with a ready clue !
When close before us spreads some famous land !
How well we think ! how faithfully we know,
Imagination lays her regal hand
On Memory's .ch<.u!der, at:d the dare not go !
For :hcn the Sou! can best its ear apply,
Piercing our daily path's discordant sound,
To tlitit low-paced,long-echoing melody,
To which the Earth, is its pure prime, went round
Such g-nerous end- will surely energize
Thv flower-trail form, liil it becomes so Btrong,
That in dark ways and undT sternest skies.
Serene and fearless thou wilt move along ;
And Nature's shapes and each historic place
Fresh current of their inner life will find,
Taking the mould of thy supernal grace,
And iucii with the hsht of thy clear rnind.
It would not, we think, be easy to refuse euch nn
invitation to travel. Does any one ask, who is Fie
trodellu Vulle ! We answer, that is one merit of |
Milnes, that be will oblige you, if you wish to un?
derstand him, to tir:d out what is not placarded on
the corner of every street, and he offers these in?
ducements in a manner so pleasing, thdt almost all
who r?ad will be induced to seek: ye: many of his
shows, though they arc really worth showing, may
not be seen by the many, even when close to them,
for want of sufficif-nt delicacy of vision. We our?
selves have lent the travels of della Valle to those of |
whose sympathy wc fell secure, and found them ut?
terly dull to the charm that lentis such a thrilling tone
to the song of our robin-redbreast,
"The pure love-cairn that 0:1 those spirits lay."
"The Lay of the Humble" is best known among
Milnes's poems, and it deserves to be so, as in that
he touches the best chords of his peculiar lute. The
two poems to Myrrha may also be mentioned for
their delicate yel strong .-tamp of individuality;
and this is to the man what fragrance is to the
flower: it may not be the best of all perfumes, but,
according lo its degTee of freshness and intensity
in its proper kind, is our sense of the secret life of j
the plant. We regret not having before us the
1 Poems, Historical and Legendary,' a? we wished
to quote one of the North' rn legends, which is re?
lated with admirable expression. It is the tale of a
poor servant Ctrl who has committed the crime of
infanticide to save herself from sham;. Years
after, she is attended by a Brownie, or domestic
sprite, which, with most sedulous care, mitigates
her toils and divines her wishes. Life becomes a
new thing to her in this presence of sustaining and
unwearied love. Her whole hear) is bent in grati?
tude toward her unseen fnend ; and as it ii ever
our way to grasp at somethiug palpable, at the risk ?
of losing the spirit that pervaded us, she is importu?
nate io -ee her comforter in bodily form. It long
resists her importunities, but whi n it can no longer j
refuse, appears to her in the moonlighi of her cham?
ber window, us her own child, still bleeding from
her hand, though grown to such size as the interval
of years would have permitted had it been left in '
life. The story is told by Milnes with a force and
pathos worthy of its mural beauty.
'Palm Leaves' is his latest publication. It is the ,
record of his travels in lite Levant und in Egypt in
the winter of IS42?13, and, as on former occasions,
he has given the form of poems to his observations, 1
adding by note or preface whatever is needed for ,
full illustration, and, us bet?re, he lies been highly
successful in this attractive form of journal.
As specimens wc insert
T11K MOSQUE.
A SIMPLE iintwrtitiom d room.?
Surmounted by an ample dome.
Or, in some lauds that favored he,
With centre open lo the sky,
But roofed with arched cloisters round.
That m.iik the c msecrated bound,
And shade the niche in Mekkeh turned,
Bv which two massive lights are burned ;
With pulpit whence the sacred word
Expounded on great days is beard ;
With fountain Iresh, where, ere they pray,
Men wash the soil of earth away ;
With shining minaret, thin and high.
From whose fine-trellised balcony
Announcement of the hours of prayer
Is uttered to the silent uir;
Such is the Mosque?the holy place.
Where faithful men of evi ry race,
Meet at their e-se, and lace'to face
Not that the power of Got! is here
More manifest, or more to fear ;
Not tli it the glory of his lace
Is circumscribed by any space ;
But thai, as men are wont to meet
In court or chamber, mart or street,
For purposes of gain or pleasure,
For friendliness or social leisure?
So, tor the erentest of all ends
To which intelligence extends,
The worship of the Lord, whose will
Created and Stistaths us stil!.
And honor of the Prophet's name,
By whom the Baving message came,
Believers meet together here.
And hold these | recincls very dear.
The floor is spread with matting neat,
l nstamed by touch ofshodden feet?
A decent and delightful seat!
Where, after due devotions paid,
And legal ordinance obeyed.
Men may in happy parlance join,
And gay with serious thought combine ;
May ask tlie news from lands away
May fix the business of to-day: ''
Or, with' God willing,' at the close
To -morrow hopes and deeds dispose.
Children are running in and out
With silver-sonndin,- laugh and shout.
N o more disturbed in their sweet play
No more disturbing those thai pray.
Thau the poor birds, that Buttering fly
Among the rafters there on high,
Or seek at times, with grateful hop.
The corn fresh-sprinkJed on the top.?
So. lest the stranger's scornful eye
Should hurt this sacred family? '
Lest inconsiderate words should wound
Devout adorers with their sound?
Lest careless feel should stain the rloor
With dur und dust from out the door?
T is well that custom should protect
The place with prudence circumspect,
And let no unbeliever pass
The threshold el the faithful mass;
Thai as each Muslim his Hartem
Guards even from a jealous dream.
So should no alien feeling scathe
This-common home of public faith,
So should its very nume dispel

To us the pictures of innocent familiar life asso?

The following legend is in M?nes's best manner:
the KEAXcr or moham.mcd.
This legend doe- no; teem to me to be orthodox, bot ra?
ther to be a later invention arising tr.'Ui a de-ire to assi?
milate ;hc nature of Mohammed to that of Christ. The
humility of Mohammed hi ail that concerns his personality
is conspicuous throughout the ri'.ran. ?? I do not .-ay nn:o
yoa. that in my possc_ssion arc the t-easurcs of God. nor
that I know what is unseen ; nor do I say unto you. Verily
I am an angel?1 only follow what is revealed to uie."?
Chap. vj. v. 50. " Mohammed is nought but an Apostle :
other Apostles have passed awsy before him." Chap Iii. v.
13H. Xor .lots Mohammed even attribute to himself any
specialty of nature snch a- be gives to Christ, whom he de?
clares to have been born of Virgin by the Sprit of God.?
? She said, 0 my Lord, how Shell t have a -o::, when a man
hath not touched ma? He answered?Thus: God w?l cre?
ate what he pleaseth. When he dctcrinlrietii a tub);?he
only laith unto it. Be, and it is."
As Arab nurse, that held in ann- a sleeping Arab child.
Had wandered from t;:u parent.-' tents some w ay iuto the
wild.
She knew that all was friendly round, she had no cause to
fear.
Although the rock- -tr.inge f.gur" male a.-.-'. :;:s-ht wa?
threatening near.
Vet something Win to dread she felt, when su.lden met her
?ieht
Two forms of noble maintenance and beautifully bright.
Their robes w ere dipt in sunset hue-?their faces shone on
high.
As Sirius or Canopus shine in pure-; summer sky.
Straight up to her without a'.vord they walked, yet in their
gaze
Was greeting; that with subtle charm mi^ht ttmperher
amaze.
one, with a mother's gentleness, then took the slumliciing
child
That breathed as in a happy dream, and delicately ! :
I'a-sed a gold knife across it* brea-t. that opened without
pain, [stain.
Took out its little beating Heart?all pure but one black
Amid the ruddy founts ol life in foul Stagnation lay
That thick black stain like cancerous ill that eats the flesh
away.
The other Tora then placed the heart on AN white open
haul.
And pourcil on it n magic fl.ssl, no evil could withstand :
And by degrees the deep disease !>?. Death the wondrous cure
Vanished, and that one mortal Heart became entirety pure.
With earnest ci.rc they laid It back within the Infant's
breast, [blest:
Closed up the gaping wound, and gave the blessing of the
Imprinting each a burning ki>- upon its even brow.
And placed it in the nurse'- arms, and passed she knew not
how.
Thus was Mohammed's (resh-boru Heart made clean (torn
Adam's sin.
Thin in the Prophet's life did God his works of grace begin.
The two that foflow are also e::ee!Ient, both in
perception and style. Here is the first:
MOHAMMED ANIi THE BLIX1) ABDALLAH.
Referred loin chap. BO of the Ku. au. Ahdaiiih Ebu
0mm Maktoum seems to have been a man of no .a-ik or
Importance, but was treated with great rcspei t by the pro?
phet ever after this adventure'. It Is interesting ihr. Mo?
han.med haul., make his own (hull ? and the divine reproofs
be received a matter of revelation, and stronger proof ol In?
sincerity and earnestness could hardly be given.
Thb Mind Abdallah sought the tent
Where, 'mid the eager listening crowd. ?
Mohammed gave his wisdom vent.
And. entering fast, he cried aloud?
" O rather, foil of love and roth !
My soul and body boll; are blind :
Pour on me then some; lays ol irtiiii
From thine i.luminated triad."
Perchance the Pn pbet heard him not,
Or busied well, seemed not to hear.
OK interrupted, then for;ot
liowall mankind to iiod are dear;
Deputing w iih the great and strong,
lie frowned in momentary pride,
While throueli the jeering out.-r throng
Tb' unnoticed suppliant crept aside.
But, in the calm ofthat midnight,
The Voice that seldom kept aloof
From his blest pillow spoke the rigiit,
And uttered words of stern reproof:?
" How dost thou know that poor man's soul
Did uot on thy regard depend .
The rich and proud thy moods control
f meant thee for the mourner's friend "
; eep in the Prophet's contrite heart
Thy holy reprimand remained,
And blind Abdallah lor his |urt
Kindness and reverence thence obtained :
Twice, after years <d sacred strife.
Within Medeenah's walls he ruled.
The man through whom Mohammed's life
Into its perfect grace was schooled.
And. from the warning of thai night.
So one. however humble, past
Without s,iiuie the Prophet's sight.
Or felt his hand not held the last:
And every one was free to bear
Ids Inch discourse, and in his breast
Unburden theirs without a fear
Of troubling his majestic rest.
Thus too, when Muslim Muslim meets.
Though new ihe lace and strange the road,
His " Peace be on you" sweetly greets
The ear, and lightens many a load :
Proclaiming that in Allah's plan
True men of every rank and race
Form but one family of man,
One Paradise then resting-place.'*
? Salutation in the East seems almost a religious ordi?
nance, and good manners part ol the duty of a good Muslim.
'The following should be read by all who believe
thai Heaven leave- any land or nation without a
witness:
THK SAYINGS OF KAMI a.
RasU wa< a holy woman, who lived in the -ceond cen?

early in the history ol Islam : the pantheistic mysticism . i

bare positive thcir.ni of the Prophet, clothing the heartless
dcsririue with a radiant vesture ol Imagination.
L
A noes friend one dav oi Rabia asked,
How she had l.arnt'the truth of Man wholly !
By what instructions was her memory tasked?
"How was her heart estranged from this world's
folly
She answered?"Thou, whoknowest God in parls,
Thy spirit's moods and processes can tell;
I onlv know tim! in my hear! of hearts
I have de.-pised myself, and loved Him weil."
Ii.
Some evil upon Knbia fell,
And one who loved and knew her well
Murmured that God with pain undue
Should sinke a child so fond and true.
But she replied?" Believe and trust
That all I sutler is most just;
1 had iu contemplation striven
To realize the joys of henven :
1 had extended fancy's flights
Through ail that region ofcehghis?
Had counted, till '.he numbers tailed.
The pleasures on the blest entailed?
Had sounded the ecstatic rest
I should eiijov on Allah's breast;
And for those thoughts I now atone
That were of something of my own.
And were not thoughts of Him alone."
III.
When Rabin unio Mekkeb came,
She stood awhile apart?alone.
Nor joined the crowd with hears on dame
Collected round the sacred stone.
She, like the rest, with toil had crossed
The waves of water, rock, and sand.
And now. as .>ne Ions temp-st-tossed.
Beheld the Kaabeh's pramised land.
Yet in her eyes no transport glistened ;
She seemed with, shsm? and sorrow bowed ;
The shouts of pray er she hardly listened,
But beat her heart and cried aloud :?
" O hear:'. weak follower of the weak.
That tnou seould'st traverse land and sea.
In this fir place that vied to seek
Who long ago had come to thee :"

Round holy Rabin's suficring bed
The wise men - ithered, gazing gravely?
" Daughter oft Jod !" the youngest said,
Endure thy Father's cnastenin? bravely ;
They who hive -trepei! tiieir souls in prayer
Cnn every anguish calmly bear."
She answered cot, and turned s.:ide.
Though not reprnarhfcllv nor sadly ;
"Daughter oft rod !" the eldest cried.
"Sustain thy Father's chastening gladly,
They who have learnt to pray aright.

THE KIOSK."
Beneath the shadow of a large-leaved plane.
Above the npple of a shadow stream,
Beside a cypress-planted cemetery,
In a gay-painted trellis-worked kiosk,
A company of easy Muslims sat,
Enjoying the calm measure of d-light
God irants trie faithful even here on earth.
Most pleasantly the bitter berry tastes,
Handed by thai bright-eyed and neat-limbed boy ;
Mos; daintily the long chibouk is tilled
And almost before emptied, tided again:
< 'r. with a free good-will, from mouth to mouth
losses the cool Nargheelecf serpentine.
So sittbey, with some low occasional word
Breaking "the silence in itself so sweet.
While o'er the neighboring bridge the caravan
Winds slow ly in one One interni!r..i;j>
Of camel ?fter camel, each with neck
Jerked up. as snitfin? the far de-en air.
Then one serene old Turk, with snow-whit .'beard
Hanging amid his pisto!-hi!ts profuse,
Spoke out?"Till sunset all the time is ours.
And we should take advantage of the chance
That brings tu here together. This my friend
Tells by his shape of dress and p-aked cap
Where his home lies; he come- t:om farthest off,
So let the round oi tale.? begin with him."
Thuschali' aged, in h:.?thoughts the Persian dived
And, with no waste of faint apologies,
Kelated a plain story of his lite,
Nothing adventurous, terrible, or strange.
But, as he said, a simple incident.
That any one there present might have known. J

In honor of the Prophet and themselves.

And looked with sorrow in each other'- frees. "
It v.ts notf'r o rselvesf?-we well could let

And meet the neighbors'scofiswith quiet minds :
But for our children we were grieved and

And lake no share of pleasure in the Feast,

With the gay freshness of their play mates'garb.
At last my wile spoke out?* Where are your
friends?
Where is Wakedi 1 where the Heshemite !
That you are worn and pale with want of gold,
And they peichance with coin lain fdly by
In some closed casket, or in some vain sport
Wasted, lor want of honest purposes V
My heart leapt light within me at these WOtis,
And I, rejoicing at my pain a;- past.
Sent one I trusted to the Heshemite,
Hold him my need in few plain written words,
1 And, ere an hour had passed, received from him
A purse of gold tied up, sealed with his name: I
And in a moment I was down the street.
And. in my mind's eye, chose the children's
clothe-.
?Bui between will and deid, however near.
There often lies a gulf impassable.
So, ere I reached the gate of ihe Bazaar,
WakedL's slave accosted me?his breath
Cut short with haste; and from his choking threat
His master's message issued word by word.
The sum was this:?a cruel creditor,
Taking the '\*antage of the season's use,
Pressed on Wakedi for a debt, and swore
i That, unless paid ere evening pro} er, the law
Should wring by force the last ol his demand.
Wakedi had no money in the house.
And I was prayed, in this his sudden -trait,
To aid him, in my duty us a friend,
of course 1 took the Heshemite: ? sealed pur^e
Out of my breast, and ?ave it to tiie slave ;
Y-: I must own, oppressed with foolish fear
1 if my wife'.- toars, an;!, might be, bitter words,
If empty-handed I had home returned,
I sat all night, half-sleeping, in the mseque.
Beneath the glimmering leathers, eggs, and lamps,
And only in the morning nerved my heart
To tell her of our disappointed pride.
She, when I stammered out my best excuse,
Abashed me with her kind, approving calm,
Saj mg?' The parents' honor clothe- the child.'
TtiUs 1 grew cheerful in het cheerfulness,
And we began to sort the children's vests,
And found them not so sordid after all. [hid?
' This might be turned?that .-tain might well be
This r< ititiniit might be used.' So we went on
Almost contented, til! surprised we saw
The Heshemite approach, and wiih quick steps
Finer the house, and in his hand he showed
The very purse tied up, sealed with his name,
Which 1 had gi\en to help Wakedi's need !
At once he asked us, mingling words and smiles,
' What iiieans ti.is secret 1 you sent vester mora
Asking lor gold, uad J. without delay;
Ijetumed the purse containing ail J had.
Hut I too found myself that afternoon
Wanting to buy a sash to gniee the feast;
And sendins to Wakedi, Irora my slave
Keceivcd this purse I sent you the same morn
I nopened.' 'Easy riddle,' I replied,
' And, as I hope, no miracle for me?
That what you stave me for my pleasure's fee
Should serve Wakedi in his deep distress.'
And then 1 told him of Wakedi's t?te:
And we were both o'erccme with anxious cart"
Lesi he, obeying his pure friendships'^ call,
Had periled his own precious liberty,
i Orsullered some hard judgement of the law.
j Bui to our great delight and inward ;?cace,
Wakedi a lev.- moments after stood
Laughing behind us, ready to recount.
How Allah, loving the trnshrii km? faith
With which he had supplied his friend's desire
liegardie.-s of his own necessity,
Assuaged the creditor's sironsr rage, and made
His heart accessible to geniiethough's.
Granting Wakedi time to pay the debt.
?Thus our three tales were gathered into one,
J'ist as I gi\e them you, and with the purse
Then op-.-ned in ihr: presence of the three?
We gave my children unpretending vests,
Applied 3 portion to Wakedi's debts.
And bought 'he Heshemite the richest sa-h
The best silk merchant owned in the Bazaar."
Soon as he ceased, a pleasant murmur rose,
Not only of applause, but of good words,
Dwelling upon the .sar?j?ct of trie tale:
Fach to his neighbor in low utterance spoke
of Friendship and its blessings, and G.-.d's grace,
L>v which man is not ielt alone to fight
His dailv battle through a cruel world.

To an Egvptian soldier, scarred and bronzed,
The duty of narration came the next:
Who said. " That soldiers" tales were out of place
Told in c\\m place? and at evening tours.

He could recount a thousand desperate feats,
Hair-breadth escapes and miracles of war.

'"?nee. when ;n Syria he hsd let war loose.
And was reducing, uuder one strong sway.
Druses, and Christians, and Mohammedans,
He heard that Iiis lost child, the favorite
Dura of a favorite wife, had been let fall
By a young careless Nubian muse, and hurt,
So as to cripple it through all its days.
No word ot anger passed the warrior's ii;>s?
Xo one would think the story on his mind
Rested a single moment. But due time
Brought round his glad return, and he once more
Entered his hail, within which, on each side.
Long marble stairs curved towards the balcony,
Where risht and left the women's chambers
spread:
Upon the Inadine stood the glad Harecm
To welcome him with music, shouts, and songs;
Vet he would not ascend, a jingle step.
Dm cried?" Where is the careless Nubian girl
That let rny child tall on the stony ground \"
Trembling'an J shrieking down one marble thght
She was pushed forward, tillshe reached the tloor:
Then Ibrahim caught her in one giant grasp.
Drairged iier towards him. and one brawny hand
Tight-twisting in her lops and glossy hair.
And with the'other drawing the sharp sword
Weil known at Nezih and at tvoniah.
Sheer from tier shoulders severed the young head.
And casting it behind him, at few bounds
Cleared the high stair and to bis bosom pressed
The darling wife his deed had just revenged.
Oh ! he is cod-like in his hour of rase !
His wrath is like the plague that falls on man
With indiscriminate fury, and for this
His nanv is honored ?Iron-rh the spacious East,
Where all things powerful meet their just reward."
The Soldier paused : and surely some one else
[{ad taken up the burden of a tale ;
But at that moment through the cypress steins
Shot the declining crimson of the sun
Fuil on the faces .if that company.
Who for some instants in deep silence watched
The last appeamnce of the ruddy rim.
And. little needing the dear warning voice]
Which issued round the neighboring minaret
Bidding ill earthly thoughts and interests
Sink in their breasts as sunk that fiery sun?
Bowed, old and young, their heads in blest accord,
Believers in one Prophet and one liod !
The Tent too is full of the spirit of these scenes.
It rises in the open air.
TUB TEXT.
Why should a man raise stone and wood
Between him and the sky !
Wny should he fear the brotherhood
Ot all thing- trom on high !
Why should a man not raise his form
As shelterless and free
As stands in sunshine or in storm
Tiie mountain and the tree !
Or if we thu as creatures frail
Before our time should die,
And courage an<' endurance fail
Weak Nature to supply :?
Let b.-= at 'east n dwelling choose,
The simplest that can Se< ,<
From parching heat and noxious dews
i ?ur pleasure and our sleep.
The Fathers of our mortal race,
While still remembrance nursed
Traditions ol the glorious place
Whence Adam tied accursed?
Bested in lent-, as best became
Children, whose mother earth
Had overspread with sinful shame
The beauty of her birth.
In cold they sou th: the sheltered nook,
In beat tlie airy shade.
And oft their casual home forsook
The morrow it was made ;
Diverging many separate roads,
They wandered, fancy-driven,
\cr thought of other ti.\ed abodes
Than Paradise or Heaven.
And while this holy sense remained,
'.Mid easy shephi rd cares,
In tent.- they often entertained
The Anzels unawares:
And to tlp-ir spirits' fervid gaze
The mystery was revealed,
How the world's wound in future days
Should by God's love be healed.
Thus we, so late and fur a link
Of geaeration\chain,
J i ?!? :!?.! to do. e'I in tents, and think
The oM world young agi-in;
With Faith bs wide and Thought as narrow
As theirs who little more
From life demanded than the sparrow
i iay-chirj ing by the door.
The Tent! how easily it stands,
Almost as if it rose
Spontaneous from the green or sand,
Express for our repose :
i >r. rather, it is we who plant
This root, where'er we (oam,
And hold, and can to others grant,
The comforts of a home.
Make the Divan?-the carpets spread,
The ready cushions pile:
Best, weary hr.rt ! rest, weary head !
From pain and pride awhile :
And all your happiest memories woo,
And mingle with your dreams
The yellow desert glimmering through
The subtle veil of beams.
We all bavi much we would forget?
Be that forgotten now!
And placid Hope, instead, .-hall set
Her seal upon your brow :
Imagination's prophet ??ye
By her shall view unfurled
Tue future greatnesses that lie
Hid in the Eastern world.
To slavish tyrannies their term
Of terror she foretells ;
She brines to bloom the faith whose germ
An [slam deeply dwells;
Accomplishing < ach mighty birth
That shall one day be born
From marriage of tlie western earth
With nations of the morn!
Then fold the Tent?then on again:
One .-,.ot of ashen black.
The only sign that here has lain
The traveler's recent track : .
And gladly forward, safe to find
At noon and eve a home.
Till we iiave left our Tent behind,
