The Wreath.


Or to restore him to the path of virtue-
Then, lorn and destitute, he keenly felt
The scorn of an uncharitable world
Whose cool reproach, and frown contemptuous,

His spirit down, and drove him to despair !)
I press'd his hand, and with a tender smile
Proffer'd my service-and, while yet I spoke,
I saw a tear roll down his faded cheek,
Which was a stranger there--for scorching grief
Had dry'd, long since, the moisture of his eyes.
And then methought I saw a gleam of hope,
Borne in a languid smile, illume his face-
A gradual increasing smile, which seem'd
Like the returning of the vernal sun,
Which comes to chase the wintery cloud away,
And bid reviving nature bloom again !


(With pride and pleasure, we cull the following ef

fusion to bedeck our Wreath-with pride, because the author is a young American-with pleasure, because we wish to shew how much we admire a man, as a poet, whom we are compelled to consid. er, politically, as our enemy.

WALLER, an English poet, made in a very good Latin poem, an excelleut pan. egyric upon Cromwell, whilft he was pro. tector. Charles II. being restored in 1660, Waller waited upon him with a copy of verses, wbich he had made in' his praise. The King having read them, told him that he had made better for Oliver ; to which Waller replied, Please your Majefy, we poets

And now, with health and happiness elate,
He lires, to virtue and to friendship true -
Oft with the grateful music of his thanks,
He serenades my car-and blesses oft
The guardian pow'r that led my curious steps
To the intended scene of self destruction.
Now do I feel more pride, in having thus
Restor'd, a youth, from misery and vice
To virtue's path-his sorrows sooth'd, and pour'd
The balm of friendship on his wounded heart-
Pluck'd from his breast the canker of despair,
And planted hope's delightful promise there,
Than I should feel to rule the state alone,
Or wade, through bleeding millions, to a throne !

THALES, the Milesian, one of the seven wise men of Greece, being asked what was the oldest thing ? he answered, that God was ; becaule he has eier been; what was the handsomest thing ? he said the World was ; because is the work of God; what was the largest thing ? Space

I MET, as near the forest skirts I stray'd,
A remnant of a man ; wooing the gloom
Of twilight shade, congenial to his soul.
He threw askance a look of wild reproach,
That seem'd to say, “ avaunt ! unkind intruder,
These haunts are consecrated to DesPAIR !"
Then turning, sought the bosom of the wood.
I follow'd him, aloof; and oft obsery'd
His comely, though emaciated form,
Alternate, gliding 'neath the hemlock boughs,
Or slowly climbing o'er the craggy steep.
At leng:h, beneath a huge and sheiving rock
He sat him down ; its high projecting brow
A hemlock met, whose thick entangled limbs
Flung o'er the ground beneath a sombrous shade--
And ncar the root, in subterraneous course,
A grumbling streamlet flow'd, whose hollow sound
Rose through the crannies of the broken earth-
" Fit temple of despair!” he said, and then
With eyes that gleam'd a sullen satisfaction,
He view'd the gloomy scene. “Here, haggard fiend,
Thon sitst, enthron'd, in ghastly majesty-
Here will I raise an altar, and thereon
Lay these weak limbs, a wretched sacrifice !"
Then from his bosom he a phral drew,
And view'd it with a grim bysteric smile-
“ On! precious draught"" he said thou art, to me,
“ Like a cooi fountain to a thirsty pilgrim-

Thy cordial pow'r hail lull the rankling pain
• Thas wrings my tortured heart !" Then to his lips
He rais'd, with eager hand, the leadly potion.
"Huld! wretched man!” I cry'd--and rushing forth,
Seiz'd his rash hand-wh le with a ghastly stare,
He ey'd me, 23 an evil gerius, sent
To cross the fondest purpose of his soul.
His cheeks were lean and haggard, and he seem'd
A wreck of man, a monument of wce !
