feeling and beauty that famous poem.]
Yes, farewell! farewell forever
Thou thyself has fixed my doom—
Bade Hope's sweetest blossoms wither,
Never more for me to bloom.
"Unforgiving" thou hast called me
Didst thou ever say "forgive?
For the wretch whose wiles enthralled
Thou did'st seem alone to live,
Short the span which time has given,
To complete thj lore's decay
By unhallowed passion driven,
Scon thy heart was taught to stray.
Lived for ine 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 byroe"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 (lot me
All my weakness here confess,
While the struggling tears permit me)
All her father's I can trace—
His whose image 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 teach 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's its praise or blame to mc?
He in whom my soul delighted
From his heart my image drove,
With contempt my truth requited,
And preferred a wanton's love.
Thou art proud, and mark me, Byron,
I've a soul proud as thine own—
Soft to love, but hard as iron
When despite on me is thrown.
But, farewell! I'll not upbraid thee,
Never, never wish the ill
Wretched tho* thy crimes haTe made me,
If thou canst—behappy still.

Truly, there is nothing new under
the sun. Our British ancesstors were
before us in many inventions which
are supposed to be the result of mod
ern ingenuity, that they had reaping
machines there can be no doubt tn the
minds of those who i*ead the following
much-overlooked passage of Pliny,
who wrote between the years of 60 and
70 of the Christain era:
"Of reaping itself, there are various jcombc*''
methods. In the broad plains of the
Gauls, enormous machines, with teeth
set^in a row, placed on two wheels,
are driven through the standing corn,
a horse being attached to it in a con
