TO THE AUTHOR OF “ THE PILGRIM'S | While laughing o'er their skilful art,

They saw dark Terror gliding by;
As Love and Wit, at eventide,

And letting fall the gifted dart, Were chasing bees in Pleasure's bower,

Wit whisper'd, it was time to fly. Tlrey captur'd one that strove to bide

He found the dazzling shaft, and stain’d For safety in a passion-flower.

Its brightness with a darker hue, Wit cantiously withdrew the sting,

Resolv'd to mingle all it gain'd
And tipp'd an arrow's point anew;

Of others' power with Terror too.
Love plum'd it with a silken wing,
And bath'd the barb in honey-dew.

The magic dart of Love and Wit

And Terror's gifts, can never fail Said smiling Love, “ This shaft will be,

ll To pierce, yet please, while launches it Thus plum'd and pointed, sharp and fleet; | The poet of « The Pilgrim's Tale.". And, though severe its wounds, through thee |

M. C. This honey-dew will make them sweet.”.

Printed by L. Harrison, 373, Strand.

TO READERS AND CORRESPONDENTS. Publishers, Authors, Artists, and Musical Composers, are requested to transmit on or before the 15th of the month, Announcements of Works which they may have on hand, and we shall cheerfully insert them, as we have hitherto done, free of expense. New Musical Publications also, if a copy be addressed to the Publisher, shall be duly noticed in our Review; and Extracts from new Books, of a moderate length and of an interesting nature, suitable for our Selections, will be acceptable.

A Lesson for Fathers and the Frolicsome Duke in our next.
We shall endeavour to gratify a Querist in an early Number.

The notice, respecting the omission of which a Civil Inquirer complains, was introduced in a preceding Number, in the place appropriated to such articles.

The able communication of X. X. would be more suitable to the columns of a newspaper than to our pages, from which political and religious discussions are alike crcluded.

Longbow seems to have mistaken his powers : strength (or rather coarseness) is not the only qualification requisite for "shooting folly as it flies.”
