WINGS, BY T. K. HERVEY. « Oh! for the wings we used to wear, When the heart was like a bird, And floated still, through summer air, And painted all it look'd oo, fair, And sung to all it heard! When fancy put the seal of truth * On all the promises uf youth! Oh! for the wings with which the dove Flies to the valley of her rest, To take us to some pleasant grove. Where hearts are not afraid to love, And truth is sometimes blest; To make the spirit mount again, That time has bow'd, and grief, and pain! It may not—oh ! it may not be ! I cannot soar on fancy's wing, And hope has been,—like thee, like thee, These many weary years, to me, A lost and perish'd thing; Are there no pinions left to bear Me where the good and gentle are ? Yes,—rise upon the morning's wing, And, far beyond the farthest sea, Where Autumn is the mate of Spring, And Winter comes not withering, There is a home for thee; Away—away—and lay thy head In the low valley of the dead. From lire Boston Courier. THE SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. The long expected day at last arrived— Loud rang the bells their welcome peal; and came Like ministering spirits, sent to call The wayward thoughts of men from worldly cares. Into the presence room of God—his Church. Oh! what A tide of rapture filled the hearts and eyes Of aged Christians, as they looked upon Their numerous offspring, more than children now, United in the family of Christ. In their young days, there were no Sunday Schools: Youth was to them the morn of truth revealed. And 0! how blessed seemed the thought, that as On trembling limbs, they tread upon the grass, That skirts the grave, their children's path Is lit with brighter beams of knowledge, in The things of God. Thence the fervid prayer That Faith and Grace may sanctify their souls, For equal grades in Heavtvt! While such deep thoughts Coursed through their parents's hearts, the scholars led By teachers, grave, and meet for the blest work, In rank and classes sought their proper seats. The Church was crowd d with these little ones. Some forms wore missing which were wont to be With them on former Anniversaries: And of the rest—how soon must, they be gone To that great Church, where endless Sabbaths reign. Their cheerful looks, beaming with joy subdued, How like the lilltes, planted by the bourse Of some pure stream, whrlst yet the Itaaf dries not The morning dew, or hand of man plucks off Their early buds, else" as the stars, floating Around the brow of night, and soon to be immersed in glory of the rising Is not that, then, the dearest hope of all ! Observe how carefully those children keep Their Bibles, and their Books of Common Prayer, Pledgee, indoed, of merit and of love; Butsealed passports to a better world. It was a faithful type of Heaves itself— sun. Cherub sud seraph of the hierarchy Celestial, save, that with theta. Deity In spirit, and the moana of grace, alone, Was manifest. Or one might rather think. That Angels, wandering from tha crystal gates Of Paradise, had füllen to earth, and now. Were asking rc-admission home: so sol), And piteous were they joined in praise. The white-stoled Bishop, meekly offered up The evening prayer: and the deep amen, That swept along the Church, was liko the cry Angels, who take up the Elders' praise; And then, with veiled faces, how before God's awful throne and cease not, day and night. To praise the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. The Preacher next, a youth—a babe in Christ, With parting exhortation, closed the scene. ***••* Of And whilst the subject flushed his heart it seemed As if one of the Prophet's sons had come From the Mount Ephraim, to meet the school, Elijah might have kept in Shiloh; and The Man of God hath bidden him, to speak The tidings he bad brought. Deep answered deep! The Organ's final anthem died away: Then teachers led their Sunday Scholars home, WI ill beating hearts, and firm resolves, to move Straight forward, on the opened path of Heaven; And some of them had melted into tears. Sweet signs of hope, that time cannot destroy. At last their shadows flitted through the aisles, Aud loft the Church as silent as the tombs. —•©a— E. P. I STANZAS. " How have you thought of me ?" How have I thought of thee ?—as flies The dove to seek her mate, Trembling lest some rude hand has made Her sweet home desolate; Thus doth my bosom seek in thine. The only heart that throbs with mine. How have I thought of thee ?—as turns The flower to meet the sun, E'en though, when elouds and storms arise, It be not shone upon; Thus, dear one, in thine eye I see The only light that beams for me. How have 1 thought of thee l —as thinks The mariner of home, When doomed through many a dreary waste Of waters yet to roam, Thus doth my spirit turn to thee, My guiding star o'er life's wild sea. How have I thought of thee ?—as bends The Persian at the shrino Of his resplendont God, to watch His earliesi glories shine. Thns doth my spirit bow to thee, My heart's own radiant Deity. IANTHE. MATURIN. The following stanzas are extracted from a poem entitled ••A Tribute of respect to the memory of Muturin." BY CHARLES PHILLIPS. -His was a cloak Made from the pall of buried years, the gold Of the deep future blazing through each fold. He spoke To Heaven and to the waters, to the souls Which beam from every orb that rolls; And on the smoky storm That looked down from its battlement, A glance of answering anger sent. The giant and the worm, The infant love of woman, (Life's down upon the breast of time,) The fevered manhood and the flash of crimes, The veins of misers mad with molten gold, The helmet and the cowl, The burning foot-track of a thing not human. The sun-struck matins and the midnight howl— Of these he told, Pouring like a stream along All the sorcerios of a song; And o'er his heart, as on a map, Linked by fine veins, the rosy countries spread— The heart now dumb and dead!

Svtaim, Dear Sir—I have just received your letter of the 6th, re questing an answer respecting the cases of Pulinouarv affec tions, &c. that I some time ago mentioned to you. I am sorry that I am not able to comply with your request, as I keep iio regular docket or register that I can refer to for the treatment and symptoms. But as far as I can recollect, I siinded they were both in a very critical situation:—they plained of great pain in the thorax, and difficulty of breathing; they bulb had a distressing cough and a froe ex|iectoration of mucus. But since they have commenced taking your Panacea, limy have experienced a wonderful change; the pain in the thorax is better, the cough is not so troublesome, und the pectoration is lessened; they still continue the use uf it, and I have no doubt, with attention to diet unddiess, they will be restored.
