Still let znc love.
J\Jv days aie in the yellow leaf,
The flowers and tmits of love art gone,
The worm, the canker, and the grief
Are mine alone.
The fu<; that in n> v bosom preys,
fs Itke to some volcanic isle,
No toicfi is kindled at its blaze —
A funeral pile
Tu* hope, the care, the jealous fears,
Th’ exalted portion of the pain.
And power of love, 1 cannot share.
Hut wear the chain.
But ’tis not here—it is not here— [ now
Such thoughts should shake my soul; nor
Where glory seals the heto’s bier,
Or binds his blow.
The sword, the banner and the field,
Gloiy and Greece atonnd us see;
The Spirtaii borne upon his shield
Was not more free.
Awake! not Greece—she is awake!
Awake, my spirit—think through whom
Mv life blood tastes its parent lake —
And then strike home !
I tread reviving passions down,
linwoilhy manhood unto thee
Indifferent should the smile or frown

If thou regret thy youth—why live?
! he land of honorable death
Is here—up to the field, and give
Away thy breath!
Seek out—less often sought than found_
A soldier’s grave, for thee the best ;
Then look around, and choose thv ground,
And take thy rest.

Your sympathy I cannot heed;
When half the heart is torn away.

True sorrow loves to be alone,
Your pity cannot give relief,
My anguish must be all my own.

How lovely still he looks in death I
It seems as if his lips were warm.
And mine did feel its balmy breath.
It seems as j| his hand press’d mine,

During the lime of General Bellcs
isle\> confinement in Windsor (Justle,
as a parly of solders were marching
there to he sel as guards over him, a
gentleman had the curiosity to ask on
what business they were going; when
one of the officers fond of punning, re
plied, *• We arc going to Windsor t<»

T.»e following fine passage—beautiful in its
style of expression, beautiful in the turn ol its
compliment to Gen Lafayette, is extracted
from that able work, Thomas Paine’s Rights
o r M a n :
“ While I ntti writing ibis, there is
accident ly before mo some froposul for
h declaration of rights by the Marquis
dc Lafayette, (1 ask bis pardon for us
ing bis former address, and do it only
for distinction's sake.) to the National
Assembly on Hie lttli duly, 1789, three
days before the taking of the Hostile ;
until cannot but be struck how opposite
the sources arc from which that gentle
man and Mr. Burke draw their princi
ples. Instead of re timing to musty re
cords and mouldy parchments, to prove
that the rights of the living are lost,
“ renounced anti abdicated for ever” by
those who arc now no more, as Mr.
Burke has done, M. tic La Fayette ap
plies to the living world and emphatic,
ally says, “ Call (o mind the sentiments
which nature has engraved in the heart
of every citizen, and which take a new
force when they are solemnly recogniz
ed by all:—for a nation to love liberty,
it is sufficient that she knows it; and to
be free, it is sufficient lhal she w ills it.”
HtnV dry, barren, and obscure, is the
source from which Mr. Burke labours;
and how ineffectual, though embellish
ed with flowers, is nil his declamation
and his nrgument compared with these
clear, concise and soul-animating senti
ments : few and short as they are, they
lead on to a vast field of generous and
manly thinking, anti do not finish, like
Mr. Burk’s periods, with music in the
ear, end nothing in the heart.
“ As I have introduced the mention
of M. de la Fayette, 1 w ill take (he lib
erty of adding an anecdote respecting
Tiis farewell address lo (be Congress of
America in i7s(?, and which occurred
fresh to tnv mind whrn I saw- Mr.
Burk’s thundering attack on the French
• crolnfion. M. de la Fayette weM to
America at an early penon ol the Avar, l
ami continued a voluuieer in her service
to the end. His conduct through the
whole ol* that enterprise is one of
the most extraordinary that is to be
found in the history of a young man,
scarcely then twenty years of age. Sit
uated iu a country that was like the lap
of sensual pleasure, and with the menus
of cnjnjirtg it, how few arc there to be
found who would exchange such a scene
for the woods and wilderness of Ameri
ca, and pass the llowery years of youth
in unprofitable danger and hardship!
Blit such is the fact. When the War
ended, and he was on the point of tak
ing his filial departure, he presented
himself to Congress, and contemplating
in his affectionate farewell, the revolu
tion he had seen, expressed himself in
these words: “May this great monu
ment raised to Liberty serve as a lesson
to the oppressor, and an exir*nple to the
oppressed”! When this address came
to the hands of Ur Franklin who was
then in France, lie applied to Count |
Vergennes to have it itisertel in the
French (la'/ette, hut never could obtain
his consent. The fact was, that Count
Vergennes was an aristocratical despot
at home and dreaded the example of tlie
American Revolution in Franep, as cer
tain other persons now dread the exam
ple of the French revolution in Eng
land ; and Mr. Burk’s tribute of fear,
(for in this light his hook must he con
sidered) runs parallel with Count Ver
gennes’ refusal.”
