0! is that form we lov'd so well,
Placed in a lonely nairow cell,
To gnawing worms a prey!
fis death, so cruel and so cold,
Ilidden within his icy 1hId4,
That spotless youth-O say?
Ile has dlescended to the tomb,
But in our hearts his virtues bloom,
Fresh as the morning dew.
While we continue here on earth,
We never can forget his worth,
Ilis friendship, ever true.
We saw disease, with loathsome smile,
Hovering o'er him awhile,
'Till pale andstern deeay,
With poison'd arrows sent by dleath,
--Assail'd him, and his vital breuth
On wings fled fast away.
And then each feeling heat did ache,
Inl agony (ill almost break
For that respected one,
Who own'd affliction's chast'ning rod,
And in his pain exclaimed, "My GOD,
Thy sovereign will be done."
Ilis numerous friends dropp'd o'er his bier
The farewell tribute (if a tear,
Before they turn'd away.
To moulder itn the clay.
His aged filther felt the stroke
No tear lie shed, no word he spoke
But ah! lie deeply grieved;
lie bade nflection's voice he still,
And bowing to his Maker's will,
The awful paig received.
But while his form within the tomb,
Shronded in solitary gloom,
In death ulleonscious lies,
Ilis spolliless spirit lives in bli'-,
Thron,d with its God and happiness,
Beyond the starry skies. .. M. C.
From the Registr .& Obscrrer.
They say I was bt four years old,
WVhen Father went away,
Yet I have tiever seen his face,
Since that Said, parting day.
Ile went, where brighter flowrets grow,
Beneath Virginia skies,
)ear Tencher show tme ont your map,
Where that far country lies.
I hegg'd him FFather (0 not go!
For sitice my mother died
I love io one so well as yon;'
And clitning to hisside,
The tealrs camte gushing down my cheeks
litil tmy eyes were dim;
Some were in sorrow thr the dead,
Anid somte in love for himt.
Ie knelt, andl pray'd to God above,
'My little datughter spre
Antd till we hot h shall meet again,
Oh keep her in thy cale.'
lIe does not comie!-I watch ltor him,
At eveing twilight grey,
Till every shadow weairs his shape,
Along the' grassy waiy.
I mittse, and( listen all alonie,
Whleni stormly windrs are highl.
Andil hlink i hear his1 teinder tone,
Atid call, hut no reply;
A mil so i've donie these font long years,
Withmin a lotnely htome,
Yet every dream of hope is vait
Why don't my faither come?-.
Father,-dear faither', are you sick
Uponi a straniger shore!
Grand mother says it must be so,-.
0 write to us once mnore,
A nd let y'our lit tle dautgtcer come,
To smooth your restless lbed,
A nd hol the cordial to your lips,
Antd press your achintg head.
Alas !-I fear me he is dead.
Whlo wvill my trouble shiare!
Or tell me where hisi form is laid,
Atid let tne travel there ?
Bly Mother's totmbl I love to sit
Where the green btranchles wave,
Good people !-hmelp an orphan child
To fiud hter lFather's grave.

his lostiouocence, in that hour of dismay,
whonl seraphs forsook, and God h1iimself
turned away the light of his countenance
one brWi~t spirit lingered, nor would desert
man inl this his extremity. Vith tender as
siduity and many a winning token ofkild
ness, did she strive to wenn him from his
sorrowsr She prevailed; and as, by degrees
his mind seemed to lighten of tie weight
which oppressed it, and confidence resumed
her seat; the spirit joved, and "ilope, on
chanted, smiled, anid waved her golden
hair." 'Since then ier home has been with
the children of men; and ever, w ith tihe sano
wiming care, has she striven to beguile
their heirts of sorrow, atid to buoy up the
sinking .spirit. But there are tinies when
she conties not to the distressed. There
are hearts pierced, which her gentle haud
binds not ip. There is a gloom which her
light senters tot,and an anguish which her
voice does not soothe. We are ii loneli
ness and none is near; we grope isn the
darkness yet no friendly hand strotehes out
to save. We feel for something to which
we may Cling; all is etimpty. -We shout inl
agony, yfpt no guiding voice repliesi: ill is
still. It is the feeling of despair-its lone
liness-its itter solitude. Give to mInao
but the semblance of hope, and, phantom
as it may be, lie will follow its guidance as
eagerly as cloes time child pursue the painted

The present condition of Egypt is per
haps amongit tIe most rcmarkable of any
existing territory of the world. The Jew
ish prophecies marked it from the earliest
periods of history as lying under anathema
seconid only inl sterntiess and extent to that
of Judea itself. hs religious corruptions, i
which have been suffered, as if for the pur- I
pose of showing to what depths the human
mind, in its natural state, can descend, i
brought down upon it the extraordinary mal 4
ediction that the Egyptians hould never I
be an independent people. No prophetic <
declaration has been ever more distinctly I
iiulfilled. For nearly three thousand years I
the Egyptiuns have been the prey of ad- e
venturers, successfully ravaged by the Per- f
sians, tyramnized over by the Greek succes- t
sors of Alexander, turned into a province I
by the Romans, ravaged by its Saracene I
Government, enslaved bv its Mameluke i
robbers, conluered by thei French, acaint a
in the hands of the Turks and at this hiour c
imastered by a Turkish slave. 1
Whether its long depression is now aboit I
to ecase, or whether, is muimch more proba
ile, it is destined, on the death of Mlahomet
Ah and his son, to fall again into the hands
of the Turks, and feel the pillage of a
Turkish Governiment, is only forthe future
to dewide But the not less extraordinary i
circumstance characterszes Egypt, that it of
all the regions of the earth, is peuihaps the r
most singular instance of a continuance of 1
fertility, and of a perpetual provision for
that fertility. In tihe midst of a desert, tile
tnarrow land of Lower Egypt presents to the
eye a territory whose exuberance scarcely
requires tho aid of humian labor, and has
searcelv ever itiled during a course of cen
tures; this is the well-known work of the
vell-known Nile. But it is not to be over
looked, that the moral and physical condi
tions of Egypt, exhibiting the most direct
contrast to each other since the days of
Pharo, give decisive proof of the fact that
tile power and prosperity of a nation ate b
lependett on higher than soil und situation
Tlhe position of Egypt is made for power. s
Inaccessible by !and, with tie desert for b
its rampart; inaccessible by sea, from tI
the shallows of the Nile, if the people had
the spirit to defend either frontier or their i
short!; stauding on the central point between tI
The: pft--knwrcedr-bomn -%nir me a-- 1,
examimpled productiveness of a soil utterly -
imexhaustible-why has Egypt been a prey 1
or a province for nearly 20o years? All 1
probabiliiy is against it; nature is against it; ,
but fact is for it, and prophecy had prepar- 11
ed us to expect it. Great designs of provi- n
dence may be in activity at this mloimet i
for the restoration of the East to its moral n
understanding, & for the extinction of these d,
horrid, here, ignorant, and godless govern- ti
inents which tear it to pieces. The thoughts
of men, totally free from extravagance, are 5i
turitng upon Palesitte. The davs of tie f
Crusader will iever co:ne again'; but it is ;
itmpossible tQ doubt that a ntew itifluence
is turned towards regions onl which 'nteither 'I
Jew nor Christian can look without a min- e
gling at once of joy and paiii. of the loftiest
hope and the deepest hnmiliation.
