Yes, farewell! farewell forever
Thou thyself has fixed my doom—
Bade Hope's sweetest blossoms wither,
Never mora for me to bloom.
"Unforgivihg" thou hast called me
Didst thou ever say "forgive?.
Thou did'st seem alone to live.
Short the span which time has given,
To complote thy love's decay
By unhallowed passion driven,
Scon thy heart was taught to stray.
Lived for me that feeling tender
Which so well thy verse can show?
From my arms why did'st thou wander?
My endearments why forego?
Wrapped in dreams of joy abiding,
On thy breast my head hast lain
In thy love and truth confiding,
Bliss I cannot know again.
When thy heart by me "glanc'd over,"
First displayed the guilty stain,
Would these eyes had closed forever,
Ne'er to weep thy crimes again.
But by Heaven's recording spirit
May that wish .forgotten be
Life, though now a load, I'll bear it,
For the babe I've borne to thee.
In whose lovely features (let me
All my weakness here confess,
While the struggling tears permit me)
All her father's I can traco—
His whose imago never leaves me,
Whose remembrance yet I brize
Who this bitterest feeling gives mo
Still to love where I despise.
With regret and sorrow rather,
When our child's first accents flow,
I shall leach her to say "Father,"
But his guilt she ne'er shall know
Whilst to-morrow and to-morrow
Wake me to a widowed bed,
In another's arms no sorrow
Wilt thou feel?—no tear wilt shed?
For the world's applause I sought not
When 1 tore myself from thee
Of its praise or blame I thought not
What'a its praise or blame to me?
He in whom my soul delighted
From his heart my image drove,
With contempt my truth requited,
And preferred a wanton's love.

WASHINGTON, March 4.
During the delivery of the inaugur

Mr. Lincoln was much cheered, es
pecially at allusions to the Union. Bu
chanan and Chief Justice Taney listen
ed with the utmost attention to
every word of the address, and at itsfollowed
conclusion the latter administered the
usual oath, in making which Mr. Lin
coln was most vociferously cheered.
The Chief Justice seemed very much
agitated,aud his hands shook very pei
ceptibly with emotion.
The inauguration of to-day makes
the eighth ceremony of the kind at
which Chief Justice Taney has oflici
ated, having administered the oath of
office successively to Prsidcnts Van
Buren, Tyler, Polk, Taylor, Fillmore,
Pierce, Buchanan and Lincoln. The
ceremony was exceedingly impressive.
At the conclusion of the inaugura
tion ceremony, the President was es
corted to the Senate Chamber and
from thence to his carriage, and the
military formed as in the procession
of this morning, accompanied him with
Mr. Buchanan and the Committee of
to tho White House.
