"Coma spirit of Creation's King, Who oVrtlic woild from chaos sprung",", Thou'st walch'd with animating wing, When morning Mars in union sang ; And with thy calm renewing breath, Come, rouse our souls from endless death. Nature's ascending at thy call, " Thy rapturous call of love divine," And laid aside her rigid pail ! Andlo1 how blight her gaimcnls shine! From darkness let ray soul arise, . To soar wuh seraphs in the sties. -.y Ah' see the fragrant flowers unclose Their beauty in earh verdant mead ! Behold the sweetly scented rose, In matchless clow begins to spread 1 Come Sharon let thy rose be prcss'd, To my benighted weary breast. Lo ? scenes of clear ecstatic glow, Where ever 1 direct my view And see ! bright Plicxbus lustres throw (O'er all things.) from Uie morning dew- Come u Son of Righteousness." and shine On this benighted soul of mine. Melodious music fills the grove, O ! how delightful to my ear The matin songs the strains of love, Rapturous, salute tiic "new-born year." Do thou my feeble heart, now raise, To heaven thy morning songs of praise. Weitfall, May, ls40. lie. jr. For the JetTarsonian Republican. The Orphan's Lament.

This world is but an empty bubble, Where I rest, yet discontent ; Since my misfortunes are then double, 0 1 my grief I give it vent, .Notwithstanding Willing to be penitent. Yes, I'm here, and still I languish, Feel confused and forlcrn ; I'll now come out and own my anguish, From the moment I was bom ; Yes sincerely From the moment I waa boro. 0 ! pity then the orphan rover, Who from phce to place must roam.

The circumstances under which he entered this difficult situation, the boldness with which he assumed its responsibilities-, his energy oi character, and the general confidence and ap probation with which his career was accompa nied, belong to the history of the times.
