THE COLUMBIA PHONIXT
When gray thc miss descend of eve,
A siiah?vv rises oa ray view,
lt Si.vk.< ntv* out at midnight, loo.
And w?ars lite look of one I grieve.
The hopes of y?uth, the bliss, the pain,
The all that time to love endears,
In progress of the perished years,
That mournful shadow brings again.
As sinks the wan and orescent light,
It rises slow beside me now;
I aee the pure and pallid brow,
H ilf shaded by the growing night
Yet, with a brightness all its own,
Expressive, through tho gloom, o'er all,
lt. holds me fixed in dreamy thrall,
Aud fills my soul with all the known.
1 cannot doubt the instinct rare,
That knows without the sight, and feels
At once, each portraiture reveal*,
And she that once was mine, is there.
So wan! so sad! as if, though bless'd.
Ia happiest realms where bliss is sure,
She sonow'd still at my unrest,
And shared the grief she cannot cure.
Sweet spirit! by those heavenly airs,
Thai, with thy coming, round me spread,
By ?.ach sweet sanction of the dead,
That bring? thc blessing through the tears:
i give thee welcome, though thy shade
Xb more restores that youth of bloom,
That ehecr'd HIM long through years of gloom,
And nil mr life's best solace made.
Dearer thamany mortal bliss,
The consciousness that still thou art
A loving watcher o'er the heart,
That eeeks its world no moro in this.

parently frighted soldier, "what bc was

Do you suppose you can-do-the landlord

I should think that q'aite in^?ny line of
business, said he, for I've been doing noth?
ing else but landlords thia long while.

to a patient, if women were admitted to
