FIFTEEN SONGS IiY THOMAS MOORE.
From Vol. V. of hui c dlccttd Works, ju-t published in London. WHEN LOVE~~*'HO RULED. When Love, who ruled as Admiral o'er His rovy mother's isles of light. Was cruising off the Paphian shore, A sail a: sunset hove in eight. " A chase, a chase! my Cupids all," Said Love, the little Admiral. Aloft the winged sailors sprung. And, swarming up the mast like bees, The snow-white sails expanding flung, Like broad magnolias, :o the breeze. " Vo ho, yo ho, my Cupids all! Said Love, the little Admiral. The chase was o'er?the bark was caught? The winged crew her freight explored ; And found t was just as Leye had thought, Por all was contraband aboard. u A prize, a prize, my Cupids all! " Said Love, the little Admiral. Safe stow'd in many a package there, And labell'd slyly o'er as " Glass," Were lots ?f all th' illegal ware, Love's Custom-House forbids to pass. "O'erhaul, o'erhaui, my Cupids ail," Said Love, the little Admiral. False curls they found, of every hu?, With rosy blushes, ready made ; Ai?d teeth of ivory, good <u new, For veterans in the smiling trade. v **Ho ho, ho ho, my Cupids all," Said Love, the little Admiral. Mock sighs, too,?kept in bags for use, Like breezes bought of Lapland seers,? Lay ready here to be let loose, When wanted, in young spinsters' ears. " Ha ha, ha ha, my Cupids all! " Said Love, the little Admiral. False pap-rs next on board were found, SJharn invoices of flatties and darts. Professedly for Paphofl bound, Bui meant for Hymen's golden marts. " For shame, for shame, my Cupids all! " Said Love, the little Admiral. Nay. still to every fraud awake. Those pirates all Love's signals knew, And hoisted oft his flag, to make Rich wards and heiresses bring-to * "A foe, a foe, my Cupid's all! Said Love, the little Admiral. "This must not bs\" the boy exclaims? "In vain I rule the Paphian seas, " If Love's and Beauty's sovereign names "Are lent to cover frauds like these. " Prepare, prepare, my Cupids all ! " Said Love, the liltle Admiral. Each Cupid stood with lighted match? A broadside struck the smuggling foe, And swept the whole unhallowed batch Of Falsehood to the depths below. "Huzza, huzza ! my Cupids all! " Snid Love, the little Admiral. * " Te Batsjc-To, to check the course of a ship."?Falconer. NOT FROM THEE. Not from thee the wound should come, No, not from thee. I ears not what or whence my doom, So not from thee ! Cold triumph ! first to make Th heatt thy own ; And then the mirror break Where fix'd thou shin'st alone. Not from thee the wound should oeme, Oh, not from thee. I care not what or whence my doom, So not from thee. Yet no?my lips that wish recall; From thee, from thee? If ruin o'er this head must fall, 'T will welcome bo. Here to the blade I bare This faithful heart; Wound deep?thou 'It find that there, In every pulse thou art. Yes, from thee 1 '11 bear it all s If ruin btt The doom that o'er this heart must fall, 'Twere sweet from thee. LONG YEARS HAVE PASSED. Long years have ?ass'd, old friend, since we First met in life's young day : i And friends long loved by thee and me, Since then have dropp'd away;? But enough remain to cheer us on. And sweeten, when thus we 're met. The glass we fill to the many gone, And the few who're left us yet. Our locks, old friend, now thinly grow. And some hang white and chill; While some, like flow 'rs 'mid Autumn's snow, Retain youth's color still. And so, in our hearts, though one by one, Youth's sunny hopes have set. Thank heaven, not all their light is gone,? We've some to cheer us yet. Then here's to thee, old friend, and long May thou and 1 thus meet, To brighten still with wine and song This short life, ere it fleet And still, as death conies stealing on. Let's never, old friend, forget, Ev 'n while we sigh o'er blessings gone, How many are left us yet. GUESS?GUESS. 1 love a maid, a mystic maid. Whose form no eyes but mine can see ; She comes in light, she comes in shade. And beautiful in both is she. Her shapo in dreams I oft behold. And olt she whispers in rny ear Such words as when to others told, Awake the sigh or wring the tear;? Then guess, guess, who she. The lady of my love, may be. I find the lustre of her brow, Come o'er me in my darkest ways; And feel as if her voice, ev'n now. Were echoing far off nty lays. There is no scene of joy or woe But she doth gild with influence bright; And shed o'er all so rich a glow As makes ev'n tears seem full of light: Then guess, ime^, who she. The lady of my love, may be. THE RUSSIAN LOVER Fleetly o'er the moonlight snows Speed me to my lady's bow*r ; Swift our sledge as jigh'tning goes, Nor shall stop till morning's hour. Bright, my steed, the northern star Lights us from yonjewelTd skies; But, to greet us, brighter far. Morn shall bring my lady's eyes. Lovers, lull'd in sunny bow'rs, Sleeping out their dream of time, Know net half the blissj that's ours. In this snowy, icy clime. Like yon star that livelier gleams From the frosty heavens around. Love himself the keener beams When with snows of coyness crown'd. Fleet then on. my merry steed. Bound, my siedge, o'er hill and dale ;? What can match a lever's speed I See, 't is daylight, breaking pale ! Brightly hath the northern star Lit us from y?*n radiant skies; Bat, behold, how brighter far Yonder shine my lady's eyes ! THERE'S SOMETHING STRANGE. a svrro ?'?st?. Taere '3 Eomcthing orange, I know no: what, Come o'er me, Some phantom I"ve for ever got Before me. I took on high, and in the sky "T is shining; Oa earth, its light with ail :h:ng3 bright Seems twining. In vain I try this goblin's spells To sever; Go where I will, i: round me dwells For ever And then what tricks by cay aad night It plays me : In every ship* the wicked sprite Waylays me. Sometime? like '.wo bright eye*. 0: bsse T is glancing; Sometimes like feet, in slippers neat, Comes dancing. By whimpers round of every sort I'm taunted. Never was mortal man, in short, So hausted. BRIGHT MOON. Bright mnon, that hish in heav'n art shining, AI! smiles, a? if within tky bower to-night Thy own Endymion lay recl,ning. And thou wonldst wake him with a kiss-of light!? By all the bliss thy beam discovers, By all those visions ?r teo bright for day, Which dreamins bards and waking lovers Behold, this night, beneath thy hng'ring ray,? I pray thee, queen of that bright heaven. Quench not to-night thy love-lamp in the sea," Till Anthe, in thij bower, hath given. Beneath thy beam, her long-vowed kiss to me. Guide hither, guide h^r steps benighted, . Ere thou, sweet rnoon, thy bashful crescent hide; Let Love but in this bower be lighted, Then shroud in darkness all the world beside. HUSH ! SWEET LUTE. Hush, sweet Lute, thy songs remind m? (>f past joy.-, now turned to pain; Of tie? that long have ceased to bind me. But whose burning marks remain. In eaoli tone, some echo talieth On my ears of joy cone by ; Ev'ry note some dreamrecaileth Of bright hopes but born to die. Yes, sweet Lute, though pain it brine me, Once more let thy numbers thrill ; Though death were in the strain they sing me, I must woo its angui.-h still. Since no time can e'er recover Love's sweet lioht when o?ee't is set,? Betler to weep such pleasures over, Than smile o'er any left u.s yet. STILL THOU FLIEST. Still thou fliest, and still I-woo thee, Lovely phantom?all in vain ; Restless ever, my thoughts pursue thee, Fleeting ever, thou mock'st their pain Such doom, of old. that youth betided, Who wooed, he thought, some angel's charms, But found a cloud that from him glided? As though dost from these out-diretched arms. Scarce I've said, " How fair thou shinest," Ere thy light hath vanished by; And't is when thou look's! divinest Thou art still most sure to rly. Ev'n as the lightning, that, dividing The cloud of niiiht, saith "Look on m?," Then flits again, iis splendor hiding? Ev'n such the glimpse I catch of thee. BREAMING FOR EVER. Dreaming for ever, vainly dreaming, Life to the last pursues its lieht ; Day hath its visions fairly beaming, But false as those cf night. The one illusion, the other real, But both the same brief dreams at last; And where we grasp the bliss idea!. Soon as it shines, 'tis past. Here, then, by this dim !ak? reposing, Calmly I 'II watch, while light and gloom Flit o'er its face till night is closing? Emblem of life's short doom! But though, by turn.-, thus dark and shining, 'Tis still unlike nun's changeful day, Whose light returns not, once declining, Whose cloud, once come, will stay. UNBIND THEE, LOVE. Unbind thee, love, unbind thee, love, From those dark ties unbind thee ; Though fairest h.ind the chain ha:h wove, Too long its links have twined thee. Away from eurth ! thy wings were madej In yon mid-sky to hover. With earth beneath th-ir dove-like shade, And heav'a all radiant-over. Awake thee, boy, awake thee, boy, Too long thy soul is sleeping; And thou may's! from this minute's joy Wake to eternal weeping. Oh, think, this world is not for thee ; Though hart! its links to sever; Though sweet and bright and dear they be, Break, or thou 'rt lost forever. DEAR T YES. Dear ' Yes, though mine no mere. E'en this but makes thee dearer; And love, Biace hope is o'er, But draws thee nearer. Change as thou wilt to me, Ths* same thy charm must be ; New loves may come to weave Their witchery o'er thee, Yet still, though lalse, believe That I adore thee, yes, e-tiII adore thae. Think'st thou thai aught but death could end A tie not falsehood's self can rend' No, when ulcn?f, lar off I die. No more to see, no more caress thee, E'en thee, my life's last sigh Shall be to bless thee, yes, stili to bless thee. ASK NOT IF STILL I LOVE. Ask not if still I love, Too plain these eyes have tedd thee ; Too well th>'ir teirs must prove How near and dear I hold thee. If, where the brightest shine, I see no form but thine, To feel that earth can show No bli.--; above !h>-e.? If this be lo\e, then know That thus, that thus, 1 love thee. 'Tis not in pleasure's idle hoar That thou cans: know affection's pots er No, try i:s strength in grief or puin : Attempt, as now. its bonds to sever. Thou "it find tntc love *s a chats That binds for ever! THEN" FIRST FROM LOVE Then first from Love, in Nature's bow'rs, Did Painting !-arn her fairy skill, And cull the hues of loveliest flow'rs, To picture woman lovelier stili. For vain was ev'ry radiant hue, T:1I Passion lent a soel to art. And taught ihe painter, ere he drew, To tix the model in his heart. Thus smooth his toil awhile went os. Till, lo ! one touch his art derles ; The brow, the lip, the blushes shone, But who could dare to paint those eyes ! 'Twas all in vain the painter strove : m 50 turning t? that boy divine. ? Here, take," he said, " the pencil, Love, j " No hand should paint such eyes, but thine." j THOUGH LIGHTLY SOUNDS THE SONG 1 SING. a ioxg of the alps. Thou*-!, lightly sound.! the sea? I sing to thee, Thoush like the iark'i its searing music b*. Thou 'It find ev'n here seme moumtul note tha: tells How near such Apnl joy to weeping dwells. T is 'mor.g the gayest scenes tha: ott'nes: steal Those saddening thoughts we fear, yet love to teel; And music never half so sweet appears. As when her mirth forgets itself in tears. Then say not :hou this Alpine sons is gay? I: comes from hearts that, like their rtis-untain-Iay, M.x joy with pain, and oft when pleasure"; bream Most warms the surface, feel most sad beneath. The very beam in which the snow-wreath wears Its gayest smile is that which wins its rears? And passion's power can never lend the glow Which wakens bliss, without some touch ot woe.

THE Charter of thu Company is without exception one of the -efe-t and most liberal ever franted by the State of \rw York, and as there i? no probability that any n?w companies will be incorporated for tone time to come, it is doubly valuable on that account, an.-i the i"om a:-.|ocer? are desirous of improving it to the best advantage tor the gixxi of the public aj well as that of individual.-.

If I am not greatly mistaken, it uil! lead ton better understanding of Arithmetic by beginners and even by advanced stu? dents than any work of ihe same compass that has j el appeared.
