The leaf-clad forest, and (lac balmy gslc,
Where dost thou stay sa kmgl
Queen of tho sylvan bower where jasmine twines,
When rosy mom tn soft-eyed splendor shines,
Where 13 thy Pan and hark! where is his songl
Oh, 'tis not heard within tins forest glade;
lie turns his rural pipe beneath the shade,
Whcro woodbine wreathes alone
Where branching boughs with graceful foliage bend
And plumed choirs in .varied chorus blend
Strains of wild melody, to mock liis sons
Hope whispers wistfully "not far away"-
Yet trembles, Tearful of a long delay
Or o'er thy train is seen;
For frowning winter shows him loth to go,
And ever and anon, with sleety snow
Obscures thy favorite carpet's teeming green.
Haste, gentle Queen, in Eden's pristine, bloom,
Sweet harbinger of love and beauty, come,
On tho mil J west winds borne:
'Tis time tho early lark essays his wings,
And from his yellow plumes the dew-drop (lings,
To mount the azure sky and woke the morn.
'Tis time the embryo blossom deck'd the trees
With honeyed cups, that tempt the humble bees
Forth to the fragrant vale.
Languish the humming-birds, at early hour
To sip tho dewy sweets from flower to flower,
And sport their tuneful pinions on the gale.
O'er hill and dale, from mom till noon I stray
From noon till eve still wend the mazy way,
The leafless trees between:
Ko purple violet meets my searching eye,
And where the moss crown'd rivulet murmurs by,
Tho cowslip, fairy flower, is not seen.
Nature, for shame! is naked, charming Queen;
She blushes for her robe of velvet green,
And tints of heavenly hue;
Then cast thy mantle round the fair forlorn,
Let vernal blossoms the trembling nymph adorn,
And wreathe her bosom with the pearly dew.
let tuneful Pan the sylvan boys advance,
"Knit with the Graces and the Hours in dance,"
To lead their Qucen'sbright way

Stored with the treasures of the tattling world,
And with a spice of mirth too."

w Gentle reader do you remember Mott
srear Poopoo? He used to keep a small
toy-store in Chatham, near the corner of
reari st, Yon mustrccollect him, of course.
Ho lived there- for many years, and was
one of the most polite and accommodating
of shopkeepers. When a juvenile, you
have bought tops and marbles of him a
thousand times. To bo sure you have;
and seen his vinegar vissage lightened up
with a smile as you paid him the coppers,
and you have laughed at his straight little
queue and his dimity breeches, and all the
other oddities that made up the every day
apparel of my little Frenchman. Ah, I

means for their cultivation; for the suste
nance daily provided; for the enjoyments
uenvcd irom the active and varying scenes

ty of the night. His gifts arc th relations
and friends, whom wclo and from whose
affection to us so considerable a UaTt of the

Crs which llinisten. mill tlinsiiii wliinli trarmi

vest all, that satisfies tho appetite, sup
ports or restores the atiiimtl Fyntcin, gratifies

emotions, let it be asked, arc all these ob

Is lt tlie habit of man la acknowledge God
in ins works, and to attribute all his pleas

arc enjoyed not as a gift to the undeserving,
but as the Tcsult of chance or good fortune,
or as the merited reward of our own pru
dence hnd effort. Wfiro gratitude a trait in
the human character, it would be proportion
ate to obligation, and where much is receiv
ed much would be acknowledged. In this
the liveliest sense of obligation would be
exhibited among the wealthy, and those
whose prosperity had been long nnd unin
tcmipted. Dm do facts correspond to this
supposition! Arc God, his providence and
bounty, most sehsibly and devoutly ac
knowledgcd by you, who feel no want, and
arc tried by no adversity! The truth is, our
sense ol obligation usually diminishes in
proportion to the greatness and duration of
blessings bestowed. A long course of pros
pe'rity renders us the more insensible.
