man poetly, Schiller. There were some omis

now gives, our readers, the whole poem.
T&ZE WORTH OF WOMAN.
FROM THE oERMAN.
Honored 10a Woman! she beats on the sight,
Graceful alid fair as a beam of light;
Scatters anund her, wherever she stays,
Roses of blises o'er our thorn-covered ways
Roses of i%radise, sent fron above,
To be gat"fred and twisted in a garland of love.
Maa, on Passion's stormy ocean,
Tosed by surges ntpuntain high,
Cour& the hurricane's comminotion,
Spons at Reason's feeble cry;
Loud *a tempests roar around him,
Lo+ver still it rours widhin;
Flashisg liglits of hope conifuid him,
St him life's incessant din.
Woman i ites hinm with bliss in her smile,
To cease at his toii and be happy awhile
Whisperi 'wooingly, " Come to my bon er!
Go not inI 'arch of the phanitom power:
Honor an enith are illusory-Coine!
Haipmesaes dwells in the temiple of home."
Man, *ith fury, steni and savage,
Persecutes his biother man;
Recklew if he bless or ravage
Actin, action, still his plat;
Now eeating, now destroying,
Cea'ehess wishes tear his breast;
Ever seking, ne'er enjo ing,
r Stilku be, but never bitst.

Far richer than man with his treasures of art;
And wiser by far in her cie cle cotiined,
Than he with his science and lights of the mind.
Coldly to himself sufficing.

Fsom the interchange of hearts.
Slowly through his bosomo stealing,

It is aurdened into stone.
