The following Cde was written by a Lady in The North of England, who for many years had been oppressed with a hopeless Consumption.-It came into my hands through the medium of one of her most intimate friends, to whose kind atten. tion, unless I am deceived, the Lovers of finished Poetry in America are indebted for an Ode, which glows throughout with all the intenseness of genuine beauty and excellence. Yours, &c.

Y. Z.

These are thy gifts, O Sickness! These to me Thou hast vouchsaf'd, and taught me how to prize. Shall my soul shrink from aught thou hast ordain'd? Shall I e'en envy the luxurious train Around whose path prosperity has strewn Her gilded toys!-Ah ! let them still pursue The shining trifies ; never shall they know Such

pure and holy pleasures as await The heart refin'd by suffering.-Not to them Does fancy sing, her wild romantick song"Tis not for them, her glowing hand undraws The sacred veil that hides the angelick world. They hear not in the musick of the wind Celestial voices that in whispers sweet Call to the flowers—the young and bashful flowers !

Mr. Rind-A good democrat gave me the following anecdote on the correctness of which you may depend. Mr. Jefferson invites to his house any who have said handsome things of bim-Several mechan. ics a short time since, and their wives, dined with him. The wife of one of them, intending to enquire the distance to Monticeilo, very simply asked the President how far it was to Carter's Mountain! Treading on the toe, and winking the eye, were vain. They only made “ confufion worse confuled." [IVash. Federalift.]


They see not, at the shadowy hour of eve Descending spirits, who on silver wing Glide through the air, and to their harps divine Sing in soft notes tlie vesper hymn of praise : Or, pausing for a moment, as they turn Their radiant eyes on this polluted scene, Drop on their golden harps a pitying tear.

Not to the rosy Maid, whom former hours
Beheld me fondly covet, tune I now
The melancholy lyre No more I seek
Thy aid Hygaia !* sought so long in vain.
But 'tis to thee, O Sickness! 'tis to thee
I wake the silent strings, accept the lay :
Thou art no tyrant warring the fierce scourge
O'er onresisting victims—but a nymph
Of mild though mburnful mein ; upon whose brow
Patience sits smiling, and whose heavy eye
'Tho'mnist with tears, is always fix'd on Heaven.
Thou wrapp'st the world in gloom, but thou can'st

Of worlds where all is sunshine ; and at length
When thro' this vale of sorrow, thou hast led
Thy patient sufferers, cheering them the while
With many a smile of promise, thy pale hand
Unlocks the bowers of everlasting rest :
Where death's kind angel waits to dry their tears
And crown to mn with his amaranthine flowers.

Prosperity! I count thy gifts no more, Nor thine, O fair Hygaia ! Yet to thee I breathe one fervent prayer: attend the strain. If for my faded brow, thy hand prepare Some future wreath ; let me the gift resign. Transfer the rosy garland; bid it bloom Around the temples of that friend belov'd, On whose maternal bosom even now, I lay my aching head! And as I mark The smile that plays upon her speaking face, Forget that ever I have shed a tear.
