When the ocean wave in fury doth roar, Wilh anger butli haughty and w ild, A kiss it i in prints on the rock-bound shore, And soothes it to rest like a child. The glistening snow, in feathery flakes, Makes love lo the hard-frozen ground , If its kiss of love no passion awakes, iu its owu sad tears it is drown'd. At the earlv pray dawn, the bright sunbeams Their kisses bestow upon earth ; And thro' tears of dew Uow sol'ly there gleams The sparkles of joy and of ininh.

The article is from the pen of a legai gentleman, whois familiar alike with the facts anil the law, and his points are made clear and conclusive.
