[Exactly fifty years ago, the London
Moriing Chronick, published a poem, enti
tled "Lines on a Skeleton." which excited
much attention. Every effort, even to tim
offering a reward of fifty guineas was vainly
made to discover the author. .All that ever
transpired was, that the poem, infa fair,
clerkly hand, was found near a skeleton of
remarkable beauty of form and color, in
the Museum of the Royal College of Sur.
geons, Lincoln's Inn, London, and that the
Curator of the M'useum' had sent them to
Mr. Perry, editor and proprietor of the
LINES TO A sKELETON..
Behold this vuin ! 'Twas a skull,
Once of etherial spirit full;
This narrow cell was life's retreat,
This spaco.was thought's mysterious seat,
What beauteous visions filled this spot !
W hat dreams of pleasure long forgot I
Nor hope, nor love, norjoy, nor f r,
Have left one trace or record Ier.
Beneath this mouldering canopy
Once shone the bright ain bus y eye;
lut start. not at the dismal void;
' If social love that eve employed;
If with no lawless fire it glenmed,
lut.through the dew of kludnegs 'beamed,
That eye shall be forever bright
When stars and suns are stuk in night.
Within. this hollow cavern hung -
The ready, swift and tuneful tongue.
If falseh 's honey it disdained,
And whealt coukI not praisO was chained;
If bold in virtue's cause it spoke,
Yet gentld concord never broke,
This silent tongue shalllead for thee
When time unveils eternity.
Say, did these ftgers delve the mino?
Or with its envied rubies shine?
To hew the rock, or wear ti gem,
Canl little now avail to them.
lut if the page of truth they sought,
Or comfort to the mourner brought,
These hands a richer med shall claim
.Than all that wait on wealth or famo.
Avails it whether bare or shod
These feet the paths of duty trod?
If from the halls of case they fled,
To seek affliction's humblo shed,
I' grandeur's guilty bribe they spurned,
And home to virtue's cotreturned,
These feet with angels' wing shall vie,
And trend the palace of the.sky.
