And we, like gilded bubbles, keep

Alone ! alone ! I'm left alone
A creature born to grieve and die )
But, while upon Night's sapphire throne,
In yonder broad and glorious sky,

A vision of the fuluie steal
Across my sight, like some faint ray
Thai glimmers from the fount of day I
Coicenot, whe I am dead.
To trample lonnd my fallen head,
And vex (lie iiuhsppy dust thou would.'! not save)

But go thou by.
Child, if it were thine error or thy crime,
I care no longer, be'u g allunblest;
Wed w hom thou wilt; but I am sick of time,
And I desire to rest.

have the negro detained in a runaway.
Descending into tlio struct lie called up
Messrs. IVston, Wiildrait nnd Frazer, who

on the pavement. Air. Chester again, in a
manner most friendly, expostulated with
the negro to tell the ti ll'.!!, und assured him
that ho s'.iottld bo kindly dealt with.
Tne negro's reply was 'I have told ll.e
truth; I am a free man.
Air. Chester then turned to deliver a pa

drew a pistol and fired il at him; the balls

Active Virtue.
Milton tayt " I cannot nraise a fucilive ind
oloistered virtue, unexeroised and unbreathed,
that never tallie out and tees her adversary,
but slinks out of the raoe, where that immor
tal garland ia to be run for, not without dust
and heal, fin wus the reason why our saca
and eurioua poet, Spenser, describing due
temperance under the person nf Guion, brings
hi in in with his palmer through the cave of
.Mammon and the bower of earthly bliss, that
he might see and know, and yet abstain."
Au Arab proverb lays, by six qualities may
a fool Le kr.own;
Anger without muse, speech will. out profit
change without prifit, inquiry without an ub-
jeot, pulling Irutl iu a stranger, and wanting ua
pacity to discriminate between Irietid and Ice.
