Anon it is mine till your weakness to show, Your loftiest schema in th? d isl to o'erthrow ; Til startle proud mortals so vainly secure, So bold to adventure, so fmil to endure. I hie me aw ay to a far desert land Where the pilgrim's lone path is a wide waste of snnd And wrup'd in the shroud of the deadly simoom I chuint the wild dirge of the caravan's doom ! A bark lie s becahn'd on the motionless stis, H?r sails idly ilapping awaiting the breeze I come, and my voice mingles hoari' witli the moan A the bubbles nri-e where the vessel goes down I And oh' 'lis sublime from my battlement high, To inuner in force 'n?ath a dark scowling sky ; The lighliiiiij. my Ii inner, the storm-cloud lny car, While Heaven's artillery makes glorious war !

Hark ! heard ye tint shriek, that yell of despair 1 Iii, yoiler brave ship by the red li'.diliiing's glate !

So in boyhood when bounding o'er mountain nnd glen, I cool'd th hot lliish on yo ir fever'd brow then, And when on the play-ground j our merry laugh rung, Itecchoed the shout and the song that jou sung. I stole to a cell where a captive lay bound, Crept in fregh and pure through each crevice around, With the sweet breath of Heaven to warm bis wan cheek And bare ofl'the tear Ileal en's mercy to seek. I entered a casement where ibsiih'sseal w-as set, Tiie blow ofilt' victim with cold dew was wet AfFclioii was tlieie,lbe purest, the best, tid fond loic had pillow 'd his bead on her breast. Oh ! then there were tears of agony there, Unfolding her pinions, Hope lied from Despair ; And love could but el i-p Icr frail ban Is to pray. As she knelt by the couch w here the stricken one lay. I fan'd his pale cheik, anil play'd on bis hrow, His burning bpbithe I lent hiseye in hi t gl iw; 1 gaxe the last boon cat th to mm tali can give, Alas' 'tis not mine to bid dying man liie. Hut I bring to th" infant bis fir-t v ital breath, And the last to revive lino uh-n gasping in death, In the sunny curls play on youth's radient brow And the silver locks lift when bis grey bead lies low. Oil ever I'm with you, for weulor for woe, Whoever thou art, w here'er thou may's! go, 0'er'1" cradle, thy colliu, my pinions I wave, And moan in the willow thai weeps o'er thy grave. I blow where I list, by Jehovah's command, Who holdeth the wind in his own right hand ; Norseers.nor hiding place know, Kor whence is my coming nor whither I go. Then list to the song that I sing as I fly, I must speed on the errands of Him the most High, 'Till the nngel shall stand on ihe sea and the shore, And I waft the last fiat that "time is no more."

The starboard watch of tho " Isabella," wero pealed upon the forecastle, us usual, one lino ni"ht, in the trades amusing each other xvith di vers yarns.

I lows'cvcr, being at peace with 1 the country, they did'nt troub'e us. What I i looked at though! first time going up onn of the j rivers, was tho. telegraphic monkeys.' I 'What's a telpL'r.itihic nionkcv V asked Jona- tliatl. ! five f.ithntns'lting. They're cheated to tie up these tails in diU'erent kind of knots. I took 'em to he Malay letters.

'Tabv I titan,' growled tbeold fdlow at last; that moans 'good morning sir,' dv'o see. 'liood m irning.' sivs the skipper, 'don't c ire if I sit down.' and I with that he planks hiiiisLdf upon the gratin along side of him. Tho Rajah soon found out i that it was no use to try to come dignity over our c iptain. or clo he would'nt tni.lo with him. Sothey piluverod away for a while and who en 'they got through we shoved oil' and went aboard rd, J and I noticed ju-t as we got over the bar, the i 1 ist teh'L'r.itihic iiniiikov cocked Ins tail nn and mule an Oof it, v.liich'meaiit, I siippo-e 'they're '" . ,, , , ; lints a' very rue te. doub,' said Jon itlia.i.i .1.1 it n-l ..! i, .T.. ..!!. ...ii.-..

Soon as I see the boat a coining I comes tailer too along side of tho old Iwy, and shoves a fist full of ho tel nut into in mouth, and kicked two hoys. I begun to feel big like an office holder. 'Taby latin,' says I to Iho skipper, touchin' my hat He laughed, and tho -old boy looked good natiir ed. So I calls my two servants, and takes the Imt's crew over to mv house, and give 'cm a blow out while tho Rajah and tho captain was having their palaver. Bv and bye tho old man sung out for tho boat, and they went oil'. Then I iust took a cruise round tho town. All the heathen was very civil to mo and called mo a 'Titan that's 'Mi-tor,' you see or rather if means a uu mure lunr iionoi, u. uiu niw Well, so I killed tho first day, and had a good dinner and supper but then I began to feel lonesome again at evening, and jnt as I was casting aliout what to do, in comes tho interpre ter, and says tho Rajah wanted mo to come and seo the dance. 'Dance.' says I, ' that's tho ticket ! ' So up J gets and follows over to tho Rajah's. Aforo I got there, I hoard tho tiim-titms, and fifes, unit bells. Well, there was tho ball-room not ex actly a room for it was all out doors. Rajah m ide a motion to mo to come along side of him ; so we looked right down upon the dancers, who were girl, nnd some pretty rnes, too. They were rigged flashy, and had bolls and clappers stopped to 'cm all over ; and the bright lights would glisten on their gold and silver gear. Rajah looks at mo as much as to sty, 'have von anything that'll come up to this in America?' I thniifrht it vn host to koon nn the rirrht side of him, o I savs, 'They do heat our dmccrs out and out;' ami it w is not much of a ho neither for they heat cm a good deal in modesty.
