COMB, IN BEAUTIFUL DREAMS, LOVE.
BY UKOKUK 0. I'RKNTICK.
Come, in beautiful dreams, love,
Oh ! come to me oft,
When the light wing of sleep
On my bosom lies soft;
Oh ! come when the sea,
In the moon's gentle light,
Beats soft on the ear,
Like the pulse of me night—
When the sky and the wave
Wear their loftiest blue,
When the dew is on the flower
And the stars on the dew
Come, in beautiful dreams, love,
Oh ! come and we'll stray
Where the whole year is
With the blossoms of May—
Where each sound is as sweet
As the coos of a dove,
An . ilie gales are
As the breathings of love?
Where the beams 1
And the waves k
And our warm lips may catch
The sweet lessons they teach.
Conic, in beautiful dreams, love,
Oh! conic, and we'll fly
Like two-winged spirits
Of love, through the sky:
With hand clasped in hand,
dream-wings we'll go
Where the starlight and moonlight
Are blending their glow;
bright clouds we ll linger,
Of purple and gold,
Till the angels shall envy
The bliss they behold.
Apogtroiilir to Water.
The celebrated apostrophe to water giv
en in one of John B. Gough's tempérance
lectures is a gem. It is said to have orig
inated with a Texas baptist preacher. It
is somewhat modilied as used by Mr.
Gough. Pouring a goblet of water and
advancing towards his audience, and lift
ing it above bis bead, be said :
" Look at that, ye thirsty ones of earth 1
Behold it ! Behold its purity ! How it
glitters, as if a mass of liquid gems ! It
is a beverage that was brewed by the hand
of the Almighty himself ! Not in simmer
ing still or smoking lires, choked with poi
sonous gases and surrounded by the steu
elies of sickening odors and rank corrup
tion does our Father in Heaven prepare
the precious essence of life—the pure cold
water ; but in the green glade and grassy
dell, where the deer wanders and the child
loves to play ; there God brews it ; and
down in the deep valleys, where the foun
tains murmur ami the rills sing ; and high
upon the tall mountain tops, where the
storm clouds brood and the thunders
crash ; and away far out on the wide sea
where the hurricane howls music and the
big waves roll the chorus, swooping the
march of God—there ho brews it—that
Ibcverage of life—health giving water—and
everywhere it is a thing of beauty : glim
mering in the dew drop, singing in the sum.
nier rain, shining in the ice gem—till the
trees all seem turned into living jewels ;
spreading a golden veil over the setting
sun or a white gauze around the midnight
moon, sporting in the cataract, sleeping
in the glaciers, dancing in the hail show
er ; folding Us bright curtain softly nbout
.the windy world and weaving the many
.colored iris, that seraph's zone of the sky,
whose warp is the rain drops of earth,
whose woof is the sunbeam of heaven ; all
«checkered over the celestial flowers by the
mystic hand of reflection, still always it is
beautiful, tlmt blessed life water. No poi
son bubbles on the beaker's brim; its
'/ouiu brings no sadness or murder !
JBxtract from tiik Vision of Mikza.—
We commend the following allegory by
Addison. It was first published in the
year 1711, and it truthfully represents the
actual facts of a table of mortality :
"Thu bridge thou seest," said he, "is
human life ; consider it attentively." Upon
ft more leisurely survey of it I found that
it consisted of three score und ten arches,
with several broken arches, which, added
to those that were . mire, made up the nutn
(be? about one hundred. As I was count
ing the arches, the genius told me that
ibis bridge consisted at first of a thousand
arches, but that a great flood swept away
(he feat , and left the bridge in the ruinous
condition I now beheld it.
'•Rut tell me-further,'' said he, "wliat
thou dscoverest ou itï" "I see multitudes
of people passing over it," said I, "and a
black cloud hanging on each end of it."
I looked more attentively, I saw seve
ral of the passengers dropping through the
Bridge into the great tide that flowed un
derneath it*, and, upon examination, per
ceived that there were innumerable trap
doors that lay concealed in the bridge,
which the passengers no sooner hod upon
hut they fell through them into the tide,
and immediately disappeared. Those hid
den pitfalls were set very thick at the
trance of the bridge, so that throngs of
people no sooner break through the cloud
but many of them fall into them. They
grow thinner toward the middle, hut mul
tiplied and laid closer together toward the
,end of the arches that were entire. There
<»ere indeed some persons, hut their num
l&er was small, that continued a kind of
ibobhling march on the broken arches, but.
ffmll through oue after another, being quite
tired and spent with s) long a walk.
What a beautiful picture of human life
jis .it exists and dies out in the present age.
The proposition has been made to make
a canal across Southern Michigan, to con
nect Lakes Michigan and Erie, and thus
save the grain laden vessels eastward
hound U voyage of about 4<>U miles, which
they are now obliged to make around the
southern peninsuta of the Wolverine State.
Another proposition of a similinr nature is
a canal through Canada connecting Lakes
Huron and Ontario. Both are said to be
feasible, and the latti r can be accomplish
ed, the engineers think, for »40,000,000.
'This, however, is not so important as the
route from Lake Michigan to Lake Erie,
as but a small proportion of tue commerce
ftf the lakes extends to Lake Ontario.
