POETRY.
From Blackwood's Edinburg Magazine,
SONG.
THE IMPASSIONED WAVE.
* fj« sweet upon the impassioned wave,
To hear the voice ot' music stealiug, .
And while the dark winds widely rave,
To catch the genuine soul of feeling! i
While all around, the ether blue
Its dim, majestic beam 13 shedding,
And roseate tiuts, of heavenly hue,
Are thro’ tns midnight darkness spreadiug.
So it is when the thrill of love,
Through every burning pulse is flowing,
And like the foliage of the grove,
A holy light on all bestowing !
O ! never from this fever’d heart
Shall dreams on wings of gold be flying—
But e’en when life itself shall part,
/’ll think on thee, sweet maid, tho* dying !
*Twao thus, upon the mountain’s height,
Young Dermond sung his plaint of sorrow,
Regardless of the evening light,
Tnat ushers in the gay to-morrow !
JFor love had of his cheek bereft
That smile—that glow—of joyous gladness,
And sympathy’s cold sting had left
Nougnt there, but pale and gloomy sadness l
To cueer the fainting sou 1.
From the Repertory,
The following is selected from among the pa
«pers oi the late Kev. Jos. K. Andrus, which
were returned from Africa after his disease, di
rected to his father, E. Andrus, Esq.
Place me where winds and tempests reign,
Where frowning winter binds the plain
In chains of ice and snow ;
Where never summer’s tepid breeze
/nvigorates the dying treesy
Or bids the water flow.
Or place me where the arid soil
Mocks human skill and human toil;
Where ceaseless thunders roll;
Where not a leaf of verdure grows,
Or dew descends, or fountain flows.
3Iy Saviour’s love, my Saviour’s smile
The tedious moments shall beguile,
And give the desert cnanus.
What ttio* the clime »vere winged with death 1
• fwere heaven to yield this fleeting breath,
And fly to Jesus’ arms.
CAPER CUTTING.
On the island of Malta, the caper tree
grows wild n^great plenty, and i9 partic
ularly abundant on the wall of Lavalette,
where much fruit is annually produced,
which since the capture of the island, has
been the undisputed perquisite of the offi‘
ter in command of the Engineers. Some
'considerable time ago the officer coromr.nd- ;
ing that corps complained to the governor,
stating, that the trees were cut down, and
the fruit carried away by the inhabitants,
and begging the governor to issue an or
der for the protection of what he concei
Ted to be bis Jawful property; upon
which that old facetious gentleman gave
out tbe following ludicrous order :
“ Whereas it has been reported to me by
tbe officer commanding the Engineers,
that the inhabitants of Lavalette have tor
some time past destroyed the truit, and
cut down the caper trees hanghing on tbe
outside ot tbe wail of tbe walls ot the gar*
risen , it is tbe command of the governor
that no one in future cut capers either on
the top or sides of the walls, except the
Lieutenaut Colonel commanding the En*
gineers. Any one tound cutting his capers
on tbe walls, alter this notification, will
be confined in tbe black bole tor tbe first
©deuce, and lor the repetition ot so dagi*
tiousan act, tbe umt capers they cut will
be their own, at the tail ol a calasb, to tbe
tune ol cal o’nmetaiis.”
BONAPARTE.
A gentleman lately returned to England,
from St. Helena, lias addressed a letter to
the Kev. Ur Rogue, with a copy ot the
Essay on tbe New Testament, of which
the latter gentleman is tbe author. It is
stated the volume thus sent, was once in
the possession ol Napoleon Bonaparte,
and tbe writer trusts that it bad beeu
perused by that extraordinary man.”
He also writes that Bonaparte, *’ was ol*
ten observed to be engaged in secret
prayer, whilst lingering on bis dying bed,
and known to have joined in prayer with
the priest who Jived with him, and who
was considered an amiable man ; and to
have made a profession ol bis laith in
Christ, through whom be prayed to the
Father.”
The anecdote of Anne Oldfield, a cele
braled actress who, in her last moments,
was so entirely engrossed with the dress
In which she was to be arrayed atter her
death, puls us in mind ol a similar anec
dote of the French Princess de Charolais.
Although in the agonies of death, it was
easier to bring her to receive the last sa
craments, than to take otf her rouge; no
longer able to resist the entreaties of her
contessor, she at length consented—“ Bnt
iu this case,*' said she, to the attendant
woman, “ give rue some other ribands ;
you kBow that without rouge, yellow rib
ands look frightful upon me.” The last
words ol Mrs. Oldfield were, “One
would not look a tnght after one’s death,”
or, according to Pope,
One would not sure look ugly when one’s dead,
And—Betty '—give these cheeks a little red !
