One of the very swejiesi of Burn's song?

self) and yet In several editions of his po

tho opinion of his
editors, ho had immor-
talized so many 'Bonny Jeans' thai this one
could bo the belter dispensed wilh. What a
heauiiful article it. Is of first love budding in
a maiden's young and tender heart! Read
it, ye young lovers, and take courago; and
yo who have been such, recall the blissful
days,-; "sweet as remembered kisses after
death," when you were in the same situ

There was a lass, and she was fuir,
At kirk nnd market to be seen;
." When a' the. fairest maids were met.
The fairest maid was bonnie Jean.
'And ayesho wrought her mammio's work,
And aye she sangsae inerrilie;
The blithest bird upon the bush,
Had ne'er a lighter heart than she.
But hawks will rob iho tender joys
That bless the liulo limwhite's nem,
And frost wi'l b!ighl the fairest flowers,
And love will breuk the soundest rest.
Young Robie was the bravest lad,
The pride and flower o' a' the glen'

And wanton naggies nine or it 11.

And lung eru witless Jcunii- wist,

'As in tli u Ihisoiii of the Miami
Tlie iimuii beam dwells at dewy e'eli,
So trembling puro was lendei love
Within llin brensi of boimiis Jean.
And nowshe works her ninoni'i -'s work,
Ami aye fig!) i' sure and pain,
Yet wist not w h;ti iter nil might lie.
Or what v.'im'd In r wet I again.

a violent altercation ensued. The English-
