“Es reden und träumen die Menschen viel

Von bessern künftigen Tagen;
Nach einem glücklichen, goldenen Ziel

Sieht man sie rennen und jagen.
Die Welt wird alt und wieder jung,
Doch der Mensch hofft immer Verbesserung!
Die Hoffnung führt ihn in's Leben ein,

Sie umflattert den fröhlichen Knaben,
Den Jüngling begeistert ihr Zauberschein,

Sie wird mit dem Greis nicht begraben:
Denn beschliesst er am Grabe den müden Lauf,
Noch am Grabe pflanzt er- die Hoffnung auf.
Es ist kein leerer schmeichelnder Wahn,

Erzeught im Gehirne des Thoren,
Im Herzen kündet es laut sich an :

Zu was Besserm sind wir geboren;
Und was die innere Stimme spricht,
Das täuscht die hoffende Seele nicht." SCHILLER.

Se esaminiamo i titoli che si danno, e quelli che si usano nelle soscrizioni, sono per lo più eccedenti alla verità, e qualche volta contrarj all' animo di chi scrive. Ma dall' uso ne è derivato l'abuso. “Mio signore,' mio padrone,' suonano l'istessa cosa, e siccome questo titolo duplicato a me niente costa, e niente reca di più a chi scrive, io soglio usarlo prodigalmente.

Non ho mai trovato che la cortesia mi pregiudichi. Ho riscosso dagli altri quella civiltà medesima, che ho praticata. Ho mantenute non solo, ma aumentate di giorno in giorno le corrispondenze, e sono a portata di far piacere agli amici, di far del bene ai raccommandati, e di superare qualunque impegno.”—GOLDONI.

ánimo con aquellas ejecuciones funestas, que en semejantes casos suele prescribir la inexorable razon de estado, é permitirse la venganza. Almagro, tan humano como generoso, no quiso consentir en el decreto de muerte que ya el fiero Orgoñez tenia fulminado contra el general prisionero, cuando le llevaban al Cuzco; mandó que se volviese á los vencidos lo que era suyo, y lo que no se encontrase que se pagase de su hacienda propria; en fin, se condujo con tal humanidad y cortesía, que los hizo suyos en gran parte, y si bien muchos le faltaron despues ó por flaqueza ó por inconstancia, no por eso perdieron jamas el interés que inspiraba su hidalga y benigna condicion. Cuando Diego de Alvarado, ya libre de sus prisiones, llegando à abrazarle y á darle el parabien de su victoria, le pidió, con generosidad, tambien harto noble de su parte, la suspension de la terrible órden de Orgoñez, "Ya eso está hecho, respondia él con una satisfaccion y una alegria, que daba a entender bien claro la bondad de su corazon, y cuan poco habia nacido para aquella terrible crisis en que la ambicion propria y agena le tenia puesto. En la conferencia que tuvo con Alonzo de Alvarado, su conversacion era mas propia de hombre que justifica sus procedimientos y manifiesta la razon que le asiste, que de vencedor envanecido y enojado que acusa y acrimina. Quejóse, sí, con discrecion y templanza del agravio hecho á sus embajadores y concluyó asegurándole que su tratamiento seria conforme á cu persona; y en lo que tocaba á disponer de sí, viese lél o que le convenia, y cualquiera que fuese su resolucion, siempre le tendria por amigo."— QUINTANA.

In this manner we spent that evening : early the next morning, as the snow had fallen in great abundance in the night, my son was employed in clearing it away, and opening a passage before the door. He had not been thus engaged long, when he came running in, with looks all pale, to tell us that two strangers, whom he knew to be officers of justice, were making towards the house.

Just as he spoke, they came in; and approaching the bed where I lay, after previously informing me of their employment and business, made me their prisoner, bidding me prepare to go with them to the county jail, which was eleven miles off.

My friends,” said I, “ this is severe weather in which you are come to take me to prison; and it is particularly unfortunate at this time, as one of my arms has lately been burned in a terrible manner, and it has thrown me into a slight fever, and I want clothes to cover me, and I am now too weak and old to walk far in such deep snow : but if it must be so

I then turned to my wife and children, and directed them to get together what few things were left us, and to prepare immediately for leaving this place.-- GOLDSMITH.
