Oh, let tho soul its slumber break
Arouse its sense and awake,
To see how soon
Lite with its glories glides away,
Aud tho stern footstep of decay
Comoi stealing on :
How pleasure, like the passing wind,
Ulowa by, and loaves us nought behind,
But grief at Inst;
How still our present hupp ness
Seems, to the wayward fancy, less
Thau what is past.
Our lives like hasting streams must be,
That iuto one engultiing sea
Are doomed to full
The tea of Death, whose waves roll on,
O'er king and kingdom, crown and throne.
And swallow all.
Alike the river's lordly tide,
Alike the humblo streimlets glide
To that sad wave ;
I'eath levels poverty aud pride,
And rich and poor sleeps sido by side
Within tho gruve.
Our birth is but tho starting plaoe,
Life is tho running of the nuo,
And death tin) goal.
There all our steps at last are brought,
Thai path alone, of all uasuught,
Is found of all.

It has been philosophically remarked
that one half the world do net" know how
the other half live. This truth arises lets
from want of curiosity on one side than
studied deception on the other. Poverty
lor instance, is reither loyally or morally
nuiiiip. iiiijui,aiue iroin its conveni
ence, there is a disci edit, in every sense
ot the word, uttacued to it, which renders
its possessor vry jealous of its discovery.
In worldly judgements we too often find
that the mi, is in the detection, not the
the commission of the offence. A man
may live in a garret, and dine on stale
bresd and mouldy cheese, and yet, with
the exactne ol'independencr, his compa
ny will often be solicited at tho social
meal or festive board. But let his domiei!
and.his means be delected let his coat
lose its freshness, his hat its smoothness,
and his boots their polish, and the felon's
brand would not more certainly excom-
municate him than the poor man's garb.
Men often prefer the suspicion cf crime
to the suspicion of penury. '
Poverty and beggary are very ditant
relations. Th beggar never knows pover
ty, ho only feels want. Tohitntho mere
clady necessities of life are sufficient. He
bogs without disguise, owns to I ho world
his destilurion, eats the rich man's
crumbs, and snores upon the flint. How
different is the condition of tho other.
In him the gnawings of hunger reflect
the blandest of smilei, ho talks of din
ners he never saw, nnd fancies suppers
ho never knew. Ho believes himself
suspected of meaness, because bo declines
somo pic-nic or other pleasure party,
I whore tho expenses are so much per head.
