There is no such thing as forgetting possible to the mind."

Rev. C. R. Maturin.

[merged small][merged small][subsumed][ocr errors][subsumed][subsumed]

Forget! oh, when, or how, forget?

It may not, cannot be;
The brightest star of hope may set,

But when died memory?
Forget! oh, love has joys, and tears,

And hours of dark regret,
And sorrow but the more endears,

But when may love forget?
Forget! oh, never, never yet

Did love the meaning know
Of that strange word, wherein are met

All pangs and shades of woe!
Forget ! the heart may withered be,

Condemned for age to mourn;
And show, like wreck on stormy sea,

Dismantled and forlorn.
But ne'er, oh, ne'er did love forget

The gone-by days and years;
And memory's deepest seal is set

On hours bedimmed with tears.
Forget! the stricken heart may pine,

Lament, forswear, disdain;
But the past can memory ne'er resign,

Hopeless the toil, and vain.

My mother bade us all prepare,

For death was hastening fast;
And one by one she called us there,

But me she called the last.
First William came, with looks of woe,

Low bent his curly head;
And fast the pearly tears did flow,

Upon his mother's bed.
The children in my arms I bore,

Beside where she did lay:
And oft she kiss'd them o'er and o'er,

And oft she tried to pray:
And oft she press'd their little hands,

And smooth'd their shining hair;
And bid them mind her last commands,

And join her dying prayer.
The shades of death were gathering fast,

And still I watch'd to see
If aught of love might come at last,

Though but a look for me.
But no; her spirit passed away

To happier realms on high;
Too blest, one moinent more to stay,

For one so lost as I.
Behold me now! a broken reed !

Low bending at thy feet;
Yet think not I for mercy plead,

My punishment is meet.
I ask thee not to mourn with me,

My dream of love is o'er ;
That peace which I resign'd for thee,

Thou never canst restore.
Thou canst not chain the wand'ring mind,

Which thou hast taught to roam,
Without a resting place to find,

Or e'er a second home.
For idle thoughts throng in my brain,

Uncall'd, unwelcome too;
And visions that return again,

In spite of all I do.
If, when my weary father calls,

I spread his humble fare,
Perchance I think of stately halls,

And knights, and ladies fair.
When at the twilight close of day,

The children on my knee;
If I wouw teach them how to pray,

Oh! then I think of thee.
Our shelter'd garden, once so fair,

And deck'd with many a gem;
Now countless weeds around it stray,

But who shall care for them?
Go to my bower of jessamine,

Behold how bleak and bare ! The leafless ruin all is this thine;

It bloom'd til thou wert there.
For all the wealth of sea and land,

I could not now be gay;
I could not join thy jovial band,

Nor laugh my hours away.
But, hark! I hear the huntsman's horn

Loud winding up the vale;
Speed, speed away this jocund morn,

Nor heed my woeful tale.
And when thou see'st the harmless hare

Spring from her covert green;
Call up thy gallant horsemen there,

A noble train I ween.
Through woods and lawns her footsteps track,

Heed not her failing breath;
But cheer afresh thy ravening pack,

And chase her down to death.
Shout then to hear her dying groang,

With triumph, and with glee;
Laugh o'er the feeble cry that moans,

So piteously to thee.
But stay not here to mock my woe,

Nor memory strive to wake;
It is enough for me to know,

That thou could'st once forsake.
Speak to the roaring tempest peace,

The winter's current stem;
But go, my tears will never cease,

Thou need'st not stay for them.

The subject of education, and particularly of popular instruction, has of late excited an unusually large portion of public interest and inquiry ; and we have, therefore, pleasure in drawing attention to Mr.J. S. Walker's inten. tion to give a lecture on the general advantages of education. After Mr. W.'s address a debate will commence, on the moral character of the present community compared with that of former times—and as Mr. W. has taken means to secure the attendance of several gentlemen who will deliver their opinions on this occasion, an animated and interesting discussion is anticipated. The Lecture will be given at Mr. Paris's elegant and commodious saloon, Hardman-street, this evening (Tuesday.)

We were a simple family,

That only lov'd our Saviour's name: That only sought his light to see,

Till thou, the cruel spoiler, came.
To sbare my mother's daily care,

And, when our task was o'er,
To kneel me down at evening prayer,

My grateful thanks to pour:
To tend my father's peaceful sheep,

With William, Kate, and Sue;
To smooth his couch of nightly sleep,

Was all I learned to do.
With thoughtless maids, or idle swains,

I ne'er was found to roam;
Or loiter through the flow'ry plains,

Regardless of my home.
But since the hour there entered in

Both guilt and misery,
More dreary far that home has been,

Than desert sands to me.
My father rests nor day nor night;

My mother she is dead :
My brother shuns his sister's sight,

Since all her pride has fled.
From the first hour my shame was known,

My mother rarely smil'd; My father sorely wept alone,

But ne'er reproach'd his child.
Worn by a grief beyond all cure,

My mother pin'd away;
Think! what thy victim must endure,

To watch her day by day.
Yet day by day I labour'd on,

As I had done before;
Ani when my weary work was done,

My grief seemed more and more.

PARKER-STREET, for SALE BY PRIVATE CONTRACT, or SUBSCRIPTION SHARES, the celebrated Picture of the WHITE HORSE, by Sir P. P. RUBENS, with a Portrait of the Archduke Albert of Austria, his Patron.

This Picture infinitely surpasses any of the kind ever painted ; the manly elegance of the Prince, the correct Drawing and Foreshortening of the Horse, are the happiest efforts of Art; and Praise cannot be too lavish on the Beauty and Delicacy of the Colouring, which form, altogether, one of the finest Pictures of this inestimable Master.
