BROOM k CO., mM r Front w yo I JEW YORK, SUN DAY M Tl?o Foetry of the Bible. In tracing the connexion of poetry with subjects moet f equently and naturally presented to our contemplation, we observe how it may be associated with our pursuit?, bo as to give interest to what is familiar, to refine what is material, and to heighten what is sublime. We now open the Bible, and find that poetry as a principle of intellectual enjoyment derived from association, is also diffused through every page ot the sacred volume, and so diffused, that the simplest child, as well mb the profoundest sage, may feel its presence. This in (act, is the great merit ot poetry, (a m^ri1 which in no other volume but the Bible, can be found in perfection.) that it addresses itself so immediately to the principles of feeling inherent in our nature, as to be intelligible to those who have made but little progress in tlie paths of learning, at the same time that it presents a s-urce of the highest gratification to the scholar and the philosopher. Let us refer as an example, to the first chapter of Genesis:? In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void; and darkne*s wag upon tho Urn of the deep. And the Spirit of O jd moved upon the face of the water*. And (J>)d i.ii I, Let there he light j and there waa light. A child but just grown familiar with the words contained in these verses, not only understands their meaning here, but feeU something of their sublimity?something of the power nnd the majesty of the God who could create this wonderful world, whone spirit moved upon the face ol the waters, and who paid, Let there be light; and there was light! While learned men of all ages have ngreed,that no possible combination of words could express more clearly and powerfully than these, the potency of the firat operations of Almighty power of which mankind have any record. We have more than once observed that poetry must have some reference, either unilormly or partially, to our own itircuinstances, situation, or experience, as well as to the more remote and varied conception? ot the imagination; and in the Scriptures, we find this fact fully illustrated. Witness the frequent recurrence of these simple words?and God said. We ore not told that the mandates oi Almighty power issued forth from the heavens, but simply that God said: a mode of speech familiar to the least cultivated understanding, yet in no danger of losing its sublimity us used here, because immediately after, follow those manifestations, of universal subordination which give us the mo?t forcible idea of the omnipotence of Divine will. Again, after the transgression of our fir?t parents, when they heard the voice of the Lord G.id walking in the gard< n in the cool of the diy : and A lam and his wife bid themselves from the preR?r.ce of the l.ord God amongst the trees of the garden. And the Lord Ood called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where ort thou 1 And he said, I heard thy.voice >n the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked ; and I hid myself. What description of thame and abasement enn be more true to human nature than this 1 But the character of Cain aflords the earliest, the most consistent, and perhaps, the most powerful exemplifications of desires and affections perverted from their original purity and singleness ot purpose. Caiu, the second man who breathed upon the newly-sreated earth, felt all the stirrings of envy and jealousy, precisely as we feel them at this day, and he talked with'Abel his brother : and it enme to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his Brother, and slew him. And the Lord sdidunto Cain.Vvhereis Abel thy brother? end hi! said, 1 know not : am 1 my brother'* keeper I And be said, What hast thou done 1 tho voice of thy brother'* blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the ojrtb, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother'* blood from thy hand ; When thou tillcst the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength ; a lugitive and a vagabond khalt thou be in the earth. And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater that 1 enn bear. Br-hold, thou hast driven mn out this d?y trom the face of the eaith ; and from thy face shall 1 be hid ; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth an4 It shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeancc shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill kim. And Cain went out from the pressnceof the Lord. Am 1 my brother's keeper 1 is a question with which we are too apt to answer the reproaches ol conscience, when we have violated the most important trust or neglected the duties which ought be the dearest in life. And what sufi'erer under the first infliction ol chastisement, consequent upon his own transgression?, has not given utterance to the expressive language?my punishment is greater than I can bearl Thus (ar this striking passage contains what is familiar and natural to eve ry human being, but beyond this, yet at the same time connected with it, it has great power and even sublimity, in no instance more so, than where it is said, thai Cain went out from the presence of the Lord. The peculiarly pmphatic manner in which the T^nrrl nrnmist>M fn Ahrnhnm anvinir? 1 will ,bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all the families of the earth he blessed. As well as afterwards when? thn Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram : 1 am thy shiell, and thy exceeding great reward? ia comprehensive and full of meaning beyond what more elaborate language could possibly convey. And also after the separation from Lot, where the Lord said unto Abraham, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou att, northward, and southward, and eastward and w< atward : For all the land which thou seost, to thea will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy send as the dust of the earth : so tliat if a man can number the dust of the earth, then ahall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length o , and in the breadth of it; for 1 will give it unto thee. Then Abram removed his tent, nnd cnmo and dwelt in the plain of Mnmre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar to the L?rd. Here the act of stretching the sight to the northward, and southward, and eastward, and wes'ward, and wnlkinc through the land in th? lensrth of it, and in the breadth of it, presents to the mini! ideas of space nnd distance, at once, simple aud sublime ; nnd when we read that whenever the faithful patriarch found rest in his wanderings, he built there an altar to the Lord, our thoughts are led on bv a na tural transition to our own experience, to ask what | record we have left, or could leave in the past, to prove that the same divine presence was with us in our journey through life. ihe story ol Hagar 19one of great poetical interest. We pursue the destitute mother and her helpless child into the solitude of the wilderness, and behold a picture which has become proverbial for the utter desolntion which it represents. Compelled by a stern necessity, with the ultimate go od of which the was wholly unacquainted, the mother goes forth as she believes, unfriended and alone, to tru.Ht herself and the treasure of her nflections to the mercy of the elements, nnd the shelter of the pathless wilds, unconscious that her peculiar situation is made the especial carc of the Father of the fatherless, nnd the Protector of ihe forlorn. And the water was spent in the bottle, and (he cast the child under one of the shrubs. And she went, nnd sat her down over against him, a RooJ way off. as it were a bow-shot; for she i-aid, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over agnimt him, nnd lift up her voice and wept. And God heard the voice of thejlad; and the angel of OadealleJ to ll'Ror out of heaven, nnd said nnto h?r, What aileth thee, Hagarf hVnrnot; for Oj.I hath hoard the voice of the lad, where he is. Arise, lift tip the Isd, an 1 hold him in thine hind; fori will make him a great nation. And in the following chapter, where Abraham, faithful, even to the resigning Ins dearest treasure, goes forth with his son, prepared to render lum up if the Lord should require it at his hand ; i And Isaac. (ptUe unt* Abraham hit father, and sail. My father? and he said. Mere nm I, my ion: and he said, B?hold the fire nnd the wood; but where i* the lamb for a burnt ottering? And Abraham said, My son, Gad will provide himself a burnt ottering, so they went both of them together. How strong must have hpen the faith of the patriarch at this moment. or if not, how agonizing nis feelings as a hther! But if thee were any of the natural struggles of humanity between his faith and his lovr, iliey are sealed to us, hy the simple and btauliful conclusion,?so they went both of them

Theseperate arcounta of the creation and the delude, handed down to us in language the most intelligible and unadorned, present to the imaginatioh pictures of sublimity so awful and imprts sive, that tt seems not improbable we nwy in some measure have derived our ideas of sublimity and power, (rom impressions made by our first reading of the Bible. Beside which, we find descriptions of the desert, nnd the wilderness, the wells of wa ter, and die goodly pastures, of the intercourse of - - " i?:.L . i? -L'IJ i m.i ?r>k.

Nor is the poetry of the Hible by any meuns conlined to thos* passages in which the power of the Almighty is exhibited us operating upon this infant worjd. The same infl lenoe extending over the passions and aiiectioos of human nature, is described with the most touching pathos, and the most impressive truth. That moving and controlling inHuence, so frequently spoken of as the word of the Lord coming with irresistible power upon the instruments of his will, is no where set beiore us in a stronger light, than in the character ot Balaam, when he declared that if l?*lak would give him his house full of silver and gold he could not go beyond the word of the Lord his God to do less or more.? Not even when he stood upon the high place amidst the seven altars with the burning sacrifice, aud all the princes of Moab around hint, and knew that the express object of his calling was to curse the people whom the Moit High had blessed; yet here before the multitudes assembled to hear the confirmation of their hopes, he was compelled to acknowledge how those hopes were defeated; saying, - - Ualak.tho king of Moub, hath brought me from Aram,out of the mountains of theunst,saying, Come, curse me J.ie.ob, and come, ili'fy sne Uraol. How shnll I euro.!, whom 0*1 bath not cursed? or how shall I dafy, whom the Lord hath not doliodt For from the top of the rocks I sun him, nnil from the hills I behold him; lo, the piopln Miall dwell alone, and shall not lie reckoned among the nation*. Who can count the dunt of Jjcob, and the nuinbi r of the fourth prt of Israel? I.et ma die the death ol the righteous, and let my last end bo like his. And B ilak <aid unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto ree? I took theo to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether. And he answered and said, Must 1 not take heed to speak that which the Lord hath pat into my mouth? Although Balaam knew that by obeying the word of the Lord he was sacrificing the favour of his master, who had promised to promote him to honour, yet again, when brought to the top of another mountain with the vain hope ol escaping from the power of Omnipotence?when seven altars were again built, and seven builocks and seven rams sacrificed, the people of Moab were again tolil that the Lord hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath ho seen perverseness ia Iirael: the Lord his Ojd U with him, and the ntio it of a king is amou f theni.| Disappointed and defeated, Bala It now very naturally exclaims. Neither eurse them at all, nor Mesa them at al'. Yet still willing to try for the third and last time, the power of Min againft his Maker, he leads Balaam to the top of Mount Peor, wlu-re the same ceremonial gives the sanction ol truth, and the majesty of |>ower, to the words of the prophet; and here it is that he pours forth for the l ist time a a blessing, still richer and more unlimited than before, beginning with the beautiful and poetic language How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel! As' he valley* ore they unread forth, as gardens by the river's tide, as the trues of lign a'oes which the Lord hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters. To those who are best acquainted with the poetry of the human heart, the sad history of Jepthah and his daughter aflords particular interest, told as it is in language never yet exceeded for simplicity nnri Pennine fipnntv liv nnv r>( the numernus wri ters who have Riven us, both in prose and verse, imaginary details of this melancholy story. And Jepthah vowrd a vow unto th? Lord, and said, if thou shalt without fjil deliver the children of Ammon into mine hand.*, Then it shall be, that whatsoever eome'h forth of the doiirs of my home to mnet m? when I return i'i peace from the children of Ammon, shall snr?ly be the Lord'.*, and I will offer it up for a burnt-offering. 80 Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to flight against them; and the Lord delivered them iuto hishandi, And he smote them from Aroer, oven till thou cotr Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain o ?:>. vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the l i. dren of Ammon were subdued before the children Israel. Aud Jephthah came to Mix} U onto his house. .....i behold hi? daughter Citmo out to mept him with timbrels and with danccs; and she was his oiily child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter. And it cane to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! Thou hast brought me very low; and thou art one of them that trouble me; fori have opened my mouth unto the Lord, and I cannot go back. And she said unto him, my father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the Lord, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmueh as the Lord hath tnlcen vengeance for thee of thine encmien even ofthe children of Amnion. ? The character of Samson displays in a powerful manner that combination of strength and weakness, which too frequently produces the most fatal and irrevocable ruin. It is a character well worthy of our greatest poet, yet one, to the interest of which h:a genius could add nothing, and (what is saying much) could expatiate upon without taking anything way. We first behold S.imson as the man before whom the Philistines trembled, after rending the lion, and scattering thousands with a single arm, stooping to the dalliance of a false and worthless woman?three times deceived?wantonly and wickedly deceived, yet trusting her at last with the secret of his strength. Next betrayed into the hands of his enemies, we find him, " Eyeless in Gaza, at the mill with slaves." And lastly, as if this punishment were not snffi" cient, he is led forth and placed between the pillars in the public hall of entertainment, to make sport at the festival of his enemies, rejoicing in his weakness and his bonds: where the indignation of Ins unconquerable soul finally nerves him for that tremendous act of retributive vengeance, by which the death of Samson is commemorated The story of Ruth is familiar in its touching pathos, to every feeling heart; as well ns intrinsically beautiful to every poetic mind. What, for instance, can exceed the description of the separation of the sisters, when their mother entreats theni to leave her. And they lifted up their voice and wept again; ami Orpah kissed her mother-in-law; but Ruth clave unto her. Anl she said, Behold, thy sistar-in law is gone luck unto her people, and unto hergods; return thou after thy si?terin-law. And Ruth said. Kntreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee; for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge; thy peopieshall he my people, and thy Old my God. Where thou diest will I die, an t there will 1 be buried; the Lord do so to ma, and more also, if aught but death part thee and me. In speaking of poelry ns it relates to the passions, and to the minor impulses, nnd finer sensibilities of human nature, as well as to the scenes and circum stances most calculated for their development, we have no hesitation in pointing out the life and character of Saul, as one, abounding perhaps more than nny other in the Scriptures, with poetical interest. The book of Job is one of poetry i'self, yet the character of the mblimp sufferer noes not nflord the variety exhibitrd in that of :'aul Prostrate in the dust of the earth, and still holding communion with the Deity, we behold him as an isolated being, struck out from the com.non lot, and set apart for a particuhr dispensation, whose severity was sufficient to fill a more human heart with bitterness. Hut the experionce of Saul is that of a more ordinary man, with whom we can fully sympathize, as we go along with him through those great nntionnl nnd social changes, by which men of common mould are often placed before the world in a point ofview so striking and important ns to entitle them to the name of great. We recognize in the King of Israel the same motives and feelings by which men in nil ages have been influenced; yet while we speak of him .1" a less extraordinary character than Job, it is only so far as the features of his character are more intelligible and familiar to ourobservat-on and experience; lor everything recorded of him in his eventful history, bespeaks a mind imbued nt the Fame time with power nnd feasibility, and a soul capable of the extremes both of good and evil. We behold him first a pimple youth?a choice voting man, nnd a goodly, so unconscious of the high honnr which awaited him, that when Ssmuel emphatically asks, "Is not the deeire of the people 011 thee, and *n thy father's house1?" lie answers with perfect humility and simplicity of heart. Am not I n Bonjnmite, of tho ftmolleitof the tribes of Ixra'-lf and my family the lrait o( alt thn families of the tribe of UsnjaminT wherefore thnn upeakcit thou xo ' me? yet, it wai ?o, that when he hod turned his ba go from Samuel, God gave him another heart. We have no reason to suppose nn nr heart, but rather n heart en,urged with a conception of the favor of the Almighty, smI filled with the spirit of prophecy, and with all heavenward aspiratiora: so that, under a sense of the responsibility of sending forth as a king, ail edict among his people, he built an altar unto tn? Lord, and asked counsel of God before he went down ul'ter the Philistines Thus far we find him obedient ns a man, and faithful as a sovereign; lor his heart was yet uncorrupt ed by the temptatious which surround a throne; but U1C I'UWCI ui IVHUUIQ ?HU ^WflllKII^ WHIVIO fWVII produced its natural and frcqjent consequence?a | "ERA _ disposition to It* guided I>y his own inclination, and to resist nil hi^h^r nntliority. Thus, when com nianded to go an<i smile th- Amalekites, and utterly to eluy botli men and wom^a, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and aaa, he spared Agag and the heft o! the sheep, r.nd of the oxen, and of the fatlinas and ol the lambs, and all that was good, and would uot utterly destroy them; thereby transgressing the great paramount law, no lees necesHary lor the right uovernnient of nn infant mind than for an infant world?the law of obedience. Then come the word of the Lonl unto Samuel, naynig, It reprnteth inn tliiit I have set up Saul to ha king: lor ho ii turned hack from following me, and hath not per. formed my commandment!. And it grieved Samuel, uiul he cried unto the Lord all niglit. And when Samuel rose up car^y to meet Saul in the moruing, it was told Samuel, saving, Saul cumo up to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a plate, nnd is gouu about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal. And Samuel came to Saul: and Baul fluid unto him, Blessed be thon of the Lord: I have pel formed the commnndment of the Lord. And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine eari, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear? And Saul said, They have brought thom from the Amalekites : lur the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice u?to the Lord thy God; ami the rest we have utterly destroyed. Then Samuel said unto Saul. Stay, and I will tell thee what the Lord hath sail to me this night. And he said unto him, Say en. And Samuel saiJ, When thou wast little in ?hine own i sight, w RKt thou not made Die head of the tribes of Israel, and the Lord anointed thee king over Israel I And the Loid sent thee on a journey, and said, Go nml i utterly destroy the sinners of the Amalekites, an I fight 1 npninst them until they lie consumed. i Wherelore then didst thou not obey the voice of the < Lord, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in tho sight of the Lord F ( After this reproof from Samuel, Saul again en- i deavors to justify himself by proving that the reser- i vation he had made was solely for the purpose of j sacrificing to the Lord, when the prophet emphati- i rally asks, I Haih the Lord as great delight in burnt ntlVrings nnd I sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord I Heboid, l to obey is better than sacrifice, anil to hearken than thn | fat of roms. I To Samuel, who seems hitherto to have stood in f the capacity of an intercessor between him nnd the < Divine Majesty, Siul now humbles himself, and en- I treats that lie will pardon his sin, and turn again 1 with him, that he may worship the Lord. And I when still rejected, he humbles himself yet more, i and prays (Oh! how naturally!) that at least the I prophet will honor hint before the people, that the I world may not witness his degradation. And now < Samuel yields, but we are told soon alter that he came no more to see Saul until the day ol his death; 1 nevertheless he mourned for him. nnd the Lord re- i pented that he had made Saul king over Israel. And the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him. How descriptive is this passage of this gradual falline away from Divine favour, which sometimes darkens and weighs down the soul, filling it wi*h gloomy thoughts, and sad forebodings, long before the melancholy change is perceptible in the outward character And how strikingly does it illustrate the hidden, and to us mysterious workings of the great plan of Providence, that the future kin? of Israel, already secretly appointed by Divine commission, should be the minstrel chosen to come and charm away, with the melodv o| his harp, the evil spirit from the mind of his predecessor in authority; and that Saul should arise . relieved and refreshed by the music of the instrument of his future torment. For it is not long before envy enters into his heart, adding its envenom- ( ed stings to (he anzuish he is already enduring. He hears the pong of th?i dancing women as they meet him with tabrets and with joy, answering one another, and saying, that. Saul na'h slaia his thousands, unn i Javia ms lens ot inousanns, ana hp nst<H, wnai ran David have more but the kingdom 1 Yet alter this he promises him his daughter in marriage, hut ni'-klv repenting him ol' the purposed honour, be? ti wn her upon another. Again, hopiog she may bs rir? to him, he offers him his second daughter; and then we are told that he saw and knew that the Lord w.i>t with David, and that his daughter loved turn. And Saul wad yet the more afraid of Divid; and he become his enemr continually : yet onne more at the earnest intercession of Jonathan, Saul consents to receive Divid again info Ins presence. And Jonathan called David, and Jonathan shewed him all those things. And Jonutlian brought David to Saul, and he was in his pretence as in times past. And there was war again : and David went out and fought with the Pluliitinei, and slew them with a great slaughter; and they fled from him And the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, as lit sat in hi* house with hia Javelin in his hand : and David played with hii hand. And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall with the jivelin; but he slipped away out of SanI'a presence, and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and cscnppd that night. The struggle wan now passed. The early tendency of the soul of the king to seek, and to do good, was finally subdued, and he went forth to pursue the chosei^ of the Lord, as an open and avowed enemy; yet, endeavouring to justify himself by J proving that David had first risen up against him, lie appeals to hia servants, and fully conscious that his cause would not stand the test of impartial examination, he appealsto their interest, and to their compassion, rather than to their judgment. lletir now, ye Benjamites j will the son of Jpssegive every one of you fluids anu vineyards, and make you ull captains ol thousands, and captains of hundreds ; That all of you have conspired against me, and there Is none thBt sheweth me that my son hath made a league with the son of Jesse, and there is none ol you that is sorry for me, or sheweth unto me that my son hath stirred up my servant against me, to lie in wait, as at this day 1 Filled with rancour nnd jealousy, heightened by the rising fame and influence of David, Saul pursues him to the wilderness of Engedi, where we meet wmi h remarKame wsiance 01 lornearance on me part of n persecuted man. With the skirt of the king's robe in his hand, David shows liirn that he hail advanced so near his person as to have been able with the same facility to destroy his life, but that he spared him from reverence lor the Lord's anointed. Whpn struck at once with a sense of Ins own recent dollar, with the honourable dealing of one whom hr believ-d to be a? enemy, with the sight of the man lie had once loved?loved in the days when his heart was not as now, seared with the worst ol passions; and perhaps touched mor* than all with the tones of the voir?, which in those happier tLivs hud been Ins music, Saul exclaim'. Is this thv voice, my eon David? then hp lifted up his voice and wept Alter this buret of tenderness, his heart is opeucd to express the lull sense he had of David's superiority, and the strong feeling ever rre. . sent to his mind, that he should one day be compelled to resign the reins ol government into his hands. And he *aid to Davi 1, thou art more righteon* than I ; for thou hast reworded me good, whereas I havo rewarded thee evil. And now,l>ehol I, 1 Know well that tliou (halt surely h? king, .ml that the kingdom of Iuel ihall lie established in thine hand. Through the whole of this history, we trace the samp strong and natural developement of feeling, which all our most talented authors aspire to in their defcriptions, nnd upon which they chiefly depend lor the poetical interest of whit they describe. But while in the character of Saul are forcibly portrayed the fatal workings ol the passions of envy, jealousy, and remorse, accompanied with many of those delicate shades, which denote the latest yearnings aftt?r crnrk/l m>l ?..,l * ?l I acter of David is scarcely less poetical in its .-treni{th and beauty, and consistency, varied bya lew instances of natural weakness, producing their own atonemeht in the humiliation, the abasement, the agony of mind, nnd the final welcome back to Divine love, by which tliey are succeeded. The attachment between David and Jonathan is rerhnps the most beautiful and perfect instance of true friendship which we have on record. As a shepherd, and a prince, their first covenant is made, i Then Jonathan nnd David made a covenant, becau*o I he loved him ns hi* own soul. I And Jonathan stripped olf'tho robe that wa? upon him, f and nave It to David, and hn garment*, even to hi* (word, | and to hi* bow, *nd to hi* girdle. { An;? we see the same covenant binding them to* , getlier through nil the changes ef their after life ; , fur Jonathan, who loved the simp'e minstrel boy that charmed away the evil spirit from his father, knew not the envy of Saul when that minstrel became a man of war, and multitudes were gathered < ath his banner And David, persecuted as he ' v the father of his friend, never once betrayed 's him or his, the bitterness of an injured it followed him even to his death, with the I due to the Lord's anointed. 1 is then , luai w tiwuia mri.i, doui ivroMitaa jorfbin, Ml lieautitu! and affecting lamer..anon, whicli no I<iuifUdH'' can fxcetd in poetry and pathos.

It is where David was commanded to destroy the remnant of the house (it Saul, and seven sons of the late kin* were delivered up into his hand, but he spared Meplubosheth, the son ot Jonathan, because of th? Lord's oatli that wan between David and Jonathan. lint the king took the two anni of Hi/pah, the daughter of Ainli, whom aho bani unto Saul, Armoni ami Mephibosheth : and the live son* of Michal, the daughter of Saul, whom ahn brought up for Adriel.the son cf Btrz'llui.the Mebolathite.

Of all the instances, imaginary or real, handed lown to us by lable or history, we have not one of i more intense and devoted love than thia. A soliary woman seated upon a rock, Watching the waning bodies of tier two dead dons, day alter day? light after night? with no shelter but the open canoiy ot heaven?no repose but the sackcloth spread ipon the rock; an emblem of her own abasement? 10 hope but to Bee the last?the very lust of all she oved?no consolation but her constancy?no eui>lort but the magnitude of her own incommunicable {rief.

A great proportion of the Holy Scriptures is not only poetical, but real poetry. Under this head the nong of Mones, and the children of Israel, ia tho first instance that occurs Jn this song, the pauHRtfr* of the children of Israel through the Red Sea, tlif overthrow of Pharaoh's host, and the wonderful dealing of the Lord with his chosen people, are commemorated in language highly figurative and sublime. We now conclude this minute examination of the .Scriptures, not only because it is unnecessary for our purpose to pursue it further, hut becausc we should soon arrive at those portions of the sacred record, which consist entirely of poetry, the most genuine and sublime. We have already seen enough U> convince us that the same principla which is associated with our highest intellectual enjoyments, is ditlused?copiously diflused throughout the written revelation of eternal truth, a revelation whose wonderful adaptation to every variety of liumstn nature, feeling, and condition, carries along with it the clearest evidence of its divine authority. Coeval with the infancy ol time, it still remains,and widens in the circle ol its intelligence. Simple an the language of a child, it charms the most fastidious taste. Mournful its the voice of griel, it reaches to the highest pitch of exultation. Intelligible to the unlearned peasant, it supplies the critic and t'ne sage wiih food for farnest thought. Silent Bnd secret as the reprools of conscience, it echoes beneaih the vaulted dome of?lie cathedral and shakes the trembling multitude. The last companion of the dying and the destitute, it seals the bridal vow, and crowns the majesty <<f kings. Closed in the heedless grasp of the luxurious and the slothful, it unfolds its awful record over the yawning grave. Sweet, and gentle, and consoling to ilit? pure in heart, it thunders ana threatens against the unawakened inind. Ilnght and joyous as the morning star to the benirrhf*?rl trnvollnr it rnlla Itlf a wofpra iugeover the path of him wlio wilfully mi-takes his way. And, finally, adapting iuell to every shade of human character, and to every grade of moral feelins, it instructs the ignorant, woos the gentle, consuits the aflltcted, encourages the desponding, rouses the negligent, threatens the rebellious, strikes home to the reprobate, and condemns the guilty. It may he observed, that all this might have been effected without the instrumentality of the principle of poetry ; and to unquestionably it might, had tho Creator of the human heart seen meet to adapt it to different means of instruction ; but qh that heart is constituted, the delicate touches ol feeling to be lound hi every part of tli? Holy Scriptures accord peculiarly with its sensibilities; the graceful ornaments which adorn the language of the bible correspond to the impressions it has received, the ideas which have consequently been formed of the principles of taste and beauty ; and by no other medium that we are capable of conceiving, eoulif the human heart have been more forcibly assured of the truths to which belong eternal life. iih(i m?* oioie dcen wnnom us posncai cnaraotcr, we should have wanted the voice of an angel to recommend it to the acceptance of mankind. Front1, as we are to neglect this banquet upon which the most exalted mind may freely and fully least, we should then have regarded it with tenlold disdain. But such is the unlimited goodness ol him who knew liom the beginning what was in the heart of man, that not only the wide creation is so designed as to accord with our views of what is magnificent and beautiful, and thus to remind us of his glory; but even the record of his immediate dealing with his rational and resj>onsib!e creatures, iseo filled with the true melody of language, as to harmonise with all our most tender, refined, and elevated thoughts. With our established ideas of beauty, and grace, and pathos, and sublimity, either concentrated in the minutest point, or extended to the widest ranire, we can derive from the Scripture* a fund of gratification not to be found in any other memorial of pastor present time. Fromthe worm that grovels in the du<t beneath our feet, to ihe track of the leviathan inthe foamingdeep?fromthe moth that corrupts ihe secret treasure, to the eagle that soars above his eyry inthe cloud*?from the wild ass in the desert, to the lamb -within the shepherd's fold?fromthe consuming locus', to the cattle upon a thousand hills? from the rose of Sharoii to the cedar ol Lebanon?from ihe crystal stresm gushing f?rih out of the flinty rock, to ihe wide waters of the deluge?from ihe barren waste to the fruitful vineyard, and the land flowing with milk and honey ?from the lonely path of the wanderer, fo thegathering of h mighty multitude?frcm the tear that falls in secret, to the din of battle, and the shout ol a triumphant hoet?Irom the solitary in the wilderness tothesatrap on his throne?from the mnurner clad in sncluloth.tothe prince in purple robes?from the gnawings of the worm that dteth not, to the seraphic vision* of the blest?from the still small r< ice. to the thundersof Omnipotence?from the depths of hell, tr the regions of eternal glory, there is no degree of beauty ?r deformity, no tendency to good or evil, no shade of darkness or gleam ol light, which does not come within the cognizance of the Holy Scriptures; anil therefore there is no impression or conception of the mind hat may not find a corresponding piciure, no thirst for excellence that may not meet with its lull supply, and no condition of humanity necessarily excluded Irom the unlimited scope of adaptation and of sympathy comprehended in the language and the spirit of thsltoble. How gracious then?how wonderful and harmonious, is that majestic plan by which one ethereal irinciple, like an electric chnin of light and life, exends through the very elements of our existence, living music to languagefelevationtothought, vitally to feeling, and intecbity,and |>ower,and beauty, ind happiness, to the exercise of every faculty of he human soul! deaYness. dr3. castle te edwards, AURISTS, 'JQ1 BROADWAY-S?:icet ? m I oh'filallf comply wi l? th* rtquett cf l.'fot iMchitoih to tfrifjr ihit h* w?t invalided on it In- doty, in r.oDfcquf uce o# tot ?l i!eafu/t? ?otl dnfrom \ i'i York, od Hi* war to Eng iiiu, h?
