TIhe Rone ian heaven.
From a Poem entitled "Home, by the autuor
of Emanuel."
The eye of man hath never seen,
Nor his ear heard, nor heart conceived,
The blessedness in heaven reserved
For all that have believed,
And felt their utter sinfulness,
And laid their idols down ;
Accounting losses gain for Christ,
His kingdom, and his crown.
Oh! could we ever murmur here,
Or groan beneath our load;
Or deem the path too rough, which leads
To his divine abode.
Did we but love Him-who for us
The way of suffering trod;
Endured death's sharpest pang as man,
And yet was very God!
Did we but love him, as we love
Some erring mortal here;
Who seems as light unto our eye,
And as our being dear;
Who in our vain idolatry,
We fondly deem our own,
'Till he is summoned to the grave,
And we are left alone!
Oh, then the awful question comes,
Where is thine idol now ?
Where is the being before whom
Thou didst in spirit how,
Whom thou had'st ehosen and set up,
Thy soul's adored to be,
The shadow of whose image pass'd
fleTW4Uef TUY -_
- -1 mnat such voices from the tonbs
Of those we loved might rise,
And wean us from our thraldom here,
A nd win us to the skies.
The soul-the immortal soul-hath fled,
In other realms to d well
It may not now to earth return,
Of weal or wo to tell.
The oak hath fallen where it stood,
Unalter'd to remain:
No breath of spring shall o'er renew
Its leafy pride again.
Oh, happy were its branches found
Engrafted on that tree,
Whose healing boughs are widely spread,
The nation's shield to he;
The woodman's axe may strike it down,
But it shall rise above,
Amid the plants of paradise,
Around the throne of love!

llow sweet to leave the busy wprld,
It's pageantry and show,
And all it's empty mockeries,
Anl seek the heart we know,
Can vibrate on the selfsame chords
That our own bosoms thrill,
And feel that should the world forget,
There's one will love us st ill ! -
'Tis sweet to think there's one we love,
And one that loves too,
WVho feels, and hopes, atnd sighs with soul
As our own true onte trite
'Tis here dissetmulations nagask
Securely we let fall,
Unhosoming the heart's secrets,
It's weakness, and all!
'Tis sweet to tell the heart's secets:
And oh ! 'tis sweet to hear
The secret thoughts of one we hold
Unto our bosom dlear!
'Tis sweet to meet with sympathy
That our owvn sorrows move,
And eli! 'tis swveet to sympathise,
WVith one we dearly love. E. A. E.

S LEE VES.
It is somewhat refreshing, as the fash
onabile tnoveli'ts used to say, to perceive
the sudden and elreetual hanishmient that
has been decreed and carried into execui
tion against those vast, unsightly, ridien
lous and immtoral bags, which it has been
the plemiutre of the ladies, (bless their
hearts) to itnsist up)on our recognizing as
sleeves, for the hast three or four years.
Tihe perverse obstinacy of P'etruebin was
not more unreasonable, when he made the
unhappy and starving Catharineswear that
the moon was in truth "the blessed suin,"'
and perhaps it was from himw that the hint
was borrowed. Be that as it may, they
are gone, hag and baggage, and our helles
are no longer compelled to walk the streets
us though suffering the penalties of justice,
with eight or ten pounds of silk, chally,
gros.-de-something, muslin, merino, Cir
cassian, Canton crape, barege, white satin.
printed calico, or pelisse cloth, dangling
from each shoulder; or to exhibit them
selves with a p air of feather pillows stuck
upon each BAde of their graceful figures,
and far surpassing them in magnitude.s,
rhe day of five feet high and six feet wide,
is gone, we trust, forever, and heuceforward
we hope to see the beautiful of our race
resembling sonewhat more in appeurance
the model in which ature formed them,
and which French milliners hae so long
succeeded in keeping out of fashion.
The transition has been, as usal in fash
ionable matters, somewhat violein; ,ile
poets notion of "fmle by degrees and beau
tifully less,' has not been thought of, but
where there was yesterday a bale, there
is to-day a spermaceti candle-the ten
yards of last night nre replaced this morn
ng ly some half ell, or perhaps a quarter.
one lady was a sufficient occupant, a week
ago, for the sent of a moderate sized car
riage-noiw, three may ride quite pleasant
y in company. Arms are at a tremendous
riscount compared with what they have
been; and shoulders are like India-rubber
balls with the air let out through a pin-hole.
All this looks queer, just now, and will stay
looking queer for soine time vet, but after
a while our eyes will receive flieir right tono
nd then we shall applaud the chango
nost heartjly. Nevertheless, we beseech
ur fair readers not too suddenly to run
nto the other extreme, and compress the
rin entirely up to the shoulder, as some
iave already done-thereby giving them
ielves somewhat the resemblance' of the
undressed dolls in the packages of ilaily &
Ward-or like a giblet pie, all wings and
egs.
