MEMENTO.
My son, be this thy simple plan;
Serve God, and love thy fellow man ;
Forget not, in temptation's hour,
That sin lends sorrow double power ;
Count life a stage upon thy way,
And follow conscience, come what may,
Alike with heaven and earth sincere
With hand, and brow, and bosom clear;
Fear God, and know no other fear !

PRINGLE.

A PROPHETESS.

My dreams are wild
As the lank hair of ancient prophetess,
Streaming in frenzy on the midnight wild.

[ocr errors]

ARGUMENT FOR MERCY.

I have a plea,
As dewy-piteous as the gentle ghost's
That sits alone upon a forest-grave
Thinking of no revenge : I have a mandate
As magical and potent as e'er ran
Silently through a battle's myriad veins,
Undid their fingers from the hanging steel,
And drew them up in prayer: I AM A WOMAN.

BEDDOES.

AFFECTION.
Oh! cast thou not affection from thee

In this bitter world.
Hold to thy heart that only treasure fast;
Watch, guard it, suffer not a breath to dim
The bright gem's purity.

Mrs. HEMANS.

On the 1st and 15th of each month, 24 pages, 72 columns,
