This is from Thempson's " Winter"
N.ow when tho cheerless emnirn of thn .In,
To Capricorn tho Centau r Archor yields,
And tierce Aquarius stains the' Inverted year,
Hung o'er (he furthest vorgo of heaven, the sun
Scarco spreads through ether the dejected day.
Faint are his uleams, and incflcctual alioot
Ills struggling rays. In horizontal lines.
Through the thick air i as clothed In cloudy storm,
Weak, wan, nnd broad, he skirts thosouthern skv:
And, soon descending, (e tho lone dark night
Wldo-shading all, thoprostralo world resigns.
Nor is tho night unwlsh'd ; whllo vital heat,
Light, life, and Joy the dubious day forsake.
Meantime, in sable cincture, shadows vast,
Deep'tinged and damp, anJ congregated clouds,
And all the vapory turbulence of heaven,
Involve the faco of thlncs. Thus Winter falls.
A heavy gloom oppressiyo e'er tho world,
Through Nature shedding influence malign.
And rouses up tlie needs of dark disease.
Tie soul of rr.au dies in him, loathing life,
And black with more than melancholy views.
Tho cattlo droop; aud o'er the furrow'd land,
Fresh from tho plow, the dun dlscolor'd Hocks,
Unleaded spreading, crop the wlio'.otonio root.
Along tho woods, along tho moorish fens.
Hllhs the and genius o( the coining storm t
And up among Uio loose disjointed cliffs,
And fractured mountains wild, the brawling brook
And cave, presageful, send a hollow moan,
Resounding long In listening Fancy's ear.
Notice, Tho best onteitnlnmont in
the city is at tho St. Nicholas hotel, saloon
