THE EXILED MOUNTAINEER.

A soldier may genius or dunce be; (From the French of Chateaubriand.)

But either can slain only once be,

As one was whose name How sweet the memory of that spot of earth,

Is worthy of fame; The happy fatherland that gave me birth!

That hero of Waterloo, PONSONBY. Sister, they never knew, those early days,

Punch.
One thrill of dearth.
My France, my country! thy remembrance stays

By me always!
My sister, can it be thou hast forgot

NEAR THE END.
The happy fireside of our humble cot;
And how our aged mother, sitting there

O THE wild days of youth! the dear dead days!
In that dear spot,

Dark are the lights and all the chorus dumb, Embraced us while we kissed her silver hair

And cold and faintly through the gath'ring

haze A reckless pair?

Of this sad twilight time thin echoes come, The castle 'neath whose walls, long, long ago,

And wand'ring voices haunt the glimmering The ripples of the river used to flow;

And, like a wind, the Past sings in mine ears, Mind'st thou the tranquil lakelet's face so blue, And, like a wind, goes by. Alas! no more O'er which in summer days the swallows flew; For me the glad green Spring of smiles and The breeze which pliant osiers stooped to shun, tears!

The gorgeous hue
We saw emblazoning the setting sun

Oft from the dreamland of the Long Ago,
When day was done?

Bale faces geek me with their eager eyes,

And fain I'd follow them, and fain would know, Ah, who will give my loved ones back to me - How fares it with them 'neath the starless My forest oaks, my mountain scenery ?

That brood above the silent shades below. And will not flee : For still, my fatherland, thy vision stays

To pluck earth's fairest flowers and o'ercast

Sweet scents and colours with relentless scorn! POETRY AND PROPER NAMES.

Ah me! A little while the evening light (The former assisting you to pronounce the latter.)

Shall linger wanly in the western sky: THERE dwelt an old cobbler at Bromley,

A little while before my falt'ring sight And he had a daughter so comely,

The pallid day shall glimmer ere it die. That, though he was poor,

Then, dumbly-dark, shall fall all-ending night. And SNOOKS for name bore,

His shop was the pride of Kilkenny.

LIFE'S LITTLE DAY.
He hung out his pole

HOPEs, like dew-drops, pearl its morning,
Along with a scroll,

Airy visions, fancies gay; Whereon was inscribed ABERGAVENNY,

Soon they fade, youth's dreamland scorning, A school was for boys kept at E’sham,

Purpose grows as grows the day.
By one who knew not how to teach 'em;
Yet his line he could trace

Work and toil come swiftly, aching

Brows, tired hands, and riven hearts; To a generous race.

And the soul weds Right, forsaking This poor pedagogue called himself BEAU
