To geze once more through struggling tears, upon

I dare not linger near thee as a brother:
I reel my burning heart would still be thine; --
now could I hoperny passionate thoughtito smother,
While yielding all the sweetness to another,
That should be mine !
But fate bath tyilled it; the decree is spoken;
Now life may le9gthen out its weary dale,
For, reft of thee, its lot cliest links are broken;
May we but clasp them altin Heaven again!
Yes, thou wilt there be mine, in yon blue heaven;
Thecii-are sweet meetings of the pure and fond;
Oh joys unspeakable to such are given, .
When the sweet ties that here arc riven,

A glorious obarrn from Heaven thou (lost inherit;
. The gift of angels unto theehelongs; •
Thrn breathe thy love in music, that thy spirit
May whisper to me, thro'thine own sweet songs;
And though niTOming life may soon resemble
'I he desert spots, ihro' which toy steps will flee'
Tho' round thee then wild worshippers assemble,
My heart will triumph if thine own but tremble
Still true to me.
Yet, not when 'on our bower the light reposes
In golden glory, wilt - thatifigh for me;
Not when the young bee seeks the crimson roses,
And the fair sunbeams tremble o'er the sea;
But when at eve the tender heart grows fonder,
And the full soul with pensive love is 'fraught,
Then with wet lids o'er these sweet paths' Moult

With tender thought.
And when at time thy bird-like voice entran)zes
The listening among with some enchanting lay,
If lam near thee, let thy heavenly glances •
One gentle message to th'y heart convey;
askbut this—n happier one has taken 4
From my lone life the charm that made it dear;
I ask but this, and - proMise thee-, unshaken,.
Ta me that look of lov&—but ohl twill waken
Such raptures here! • ,
Aml now farewell ! farewell ! I dare not lengthen
•These sweet sad moments out; to gaq - on thee
Is bliss indeed, yet it hot serves to strengthen
The love that now amounts to agony;
Thia is our last farewell, our last fond meeting;
The world is wide, and we must dwell apart,
:Nly spit it gives thee, now, its last wild greeting,
Wills lip to lip, while pulse to pulse is beating,
And heart to heart.
Farewell ! farewell ! Our dream of bliss is over
All, save the memory of our blighted dove; •
now must yield thee to thy happier lover,
Vet Oh remember, thou art mine alnive !
, Tis a sweet thought, and, when by distance patted
'Twill lie upon our !warts, a holy spell,

aecetnnlishrnent of a matrimonial union=
troubles only : the more' pestilent'that they
seem ea:inappropriate to a lime from, which
such different results were expected. From
the moment, indeed, that a marrtagejs.sus
peeted to'be on the tapis, to the time when
the world has ceased to think of it, all is
annoyance and perplexity, at least to the
gentleman—insomuch that I sometimes
wonder how people can venture on pur
chasing even a lile's happiness at the 'ex
pense of such'•a severe preliminary trial.
It is needless, however, to wonder at
this=common -adventure; treeing-::-that-it is
generally entered upon under the intliNtlce
of a maxim which would perhaps be found•
at the bottom of more wont'ierfully hazard
ous enterprises.than.weareatvare of—that
that it is better,togO on than to draw back.
A. youth falls into the dream styled love ;
he looks and sighs, as he thinks, in'secret;
under thousands of pretences wonderfully
imposing upon himself, he contrives to
perform thousands of little 'services to the
beloved object; he even attempts verse,
and - thrusting into the young.lady's album
a few anonymous pieces of his' own, in
which he thinks he has expressed all his
romantic feelings, sees with mortified but
excusing surprise, that she appreciates
nothing about them but the neatness of the
Penmanship. For weeks, for months, he
goes on thus, contriving all kinds of iina
larming pleas for visits, spending the time,
.of these visits in a !tied of subdued trans
'port, and yet wondering when he retires
that he did not enjoy them more: When
Sensible that it Would be impropei to, call,
has a consolatory pleasure in approach
ing the part of the town where. she lives,
and;-if. lie can get a real business reason
' for passing her abode, it is—almost as good
as a call. By night, the lamp which he
sees in her- window is a harbor-light to
which tend all the thoughts that form his
spiritualized existence. Can gaze on
it for hours, and, when it is extinguished,
feels as if himself, not she, were involved
in darkness. By day, to meet but her
school-boy brother whistlingunretleetinglii
along, is pleasure to him. The very dogs
and cats of the establishment have an in
terest for him. ' And all his callings, his
obsequiousness, his watchings,liis abstrac
tions, he believes to be unobserypd. No
one; he supposes, 't.ays the least attention
to what he is •about, or forms any conclu
sion, from his conduct. He sees, for his
own part, no harm in it; lie looks forward
to no consequences; he never.once thinks
of what it is all tending to—when suddenly,
some fine day,a free spokeeriend astounds
him with—`Well, I hear you're going to
get Miss' Graham !' Going to get Miss
Grahana! Cupid protect us! He can only .
blunder through a denial, and faintly smile
away the horrible impeachment. Going
to get Miss Gr'aham! 'to hear her WIMITI
he has pioured as the ideal, the angelic,
thus spoken of ai a mere Miss, capable of
being married! To be himself brought—
he, the boyish, the 'bashful; Who hilt last
year could hardly face his partner at a'
dancing-school ball—to bn himself brought
thus suddenly intolhe presence of 'so
palling an idea 'as matrimony! In a,mo- . !
ment the ridicule which he 'knows the bare
mention of such an event would excite a
mong his friends, rushes before him. He
feels lanleelf like. one awakening on the
brink ot a' precipice over which he was
about to walk.. HrY;resolves never to call
again, to 4 froth the world, to bury him
iel'f and his' sorrowi in some wild solitUdei
at all events, be sees no more--=a' proceed
ing. Which Maria does not mark at all; qr
prudently 'overlooks, from a. consideration
of her lover's circumstances. But all the
swains to whom the imputation of an in
tention of marrying . Miss Graham is ,made
are 'not such' green youths as this. Many
of them are mature and established young
men whOin . it would he worth while to
marry.' Perhaps kift the very beginning of
the - entanglement, there might in such
youths be a latent notion of matrimony—;
an occult proclivity—a kind of hazy; half
• confeased inclination ' to fall into the toils.
t lßUteven in such cases there was always'a
; belief that they were, and would continue
to his, at liblirty: Nbe the most distant
suspicion was entertained of theiV evert feel;

idea, 'he has to writhe. up to the marriage
day, long ere whiclathey ore apt to be lost'
sight of in other thick-coining miseries, - the
grandest of which usually arises from the
friends of the parties. Who I would ask,
ever heard such a sentence es,."Mr. Wilson

I hear the friends are," . &c.--ten to one,

are reputed to be, in general, Very jealous
respecting their own interests; and very
selfish in the following of their own
nations ; but no mad is ever half so jealous
or so selfish in those matters as his friends.
When a common eye would stipposO there

pick -you out a depreciatory flaw on one

.lady as well as the genealogy of the gontie: .
man andthe peculiar Circumstances of the
lady, are scanned with a disinterested so
licitude which would be - beyOod ell grati

parties may be willing to be happy, but
their friends have their interest too much
at heart to allow any such thing. No, no
—if you are to be 'happy, you 'must be
'happy - upon proper grounds, and, above all
things, consistently with' the honor of the
family. Even supposing all such prelimi
nary difficulties overcome, and the tormen
tors are at length ',willing that the parties
should seek happines in their own way,
how beautifully do they strike in with new
plagues at the wedding. 'My friend Miss
Smith is going to be married next week—
but she is terrible perplexed by her friends.
She does not like to' have-a racket, and the
room, too, is small ; but, then, how to
make a selection ? She cannot have her
aunt Thomson's family without having her
uncle Johnson's. Por ovary Black she
asks, she must have a White;' and you
know the Blacks and Whites were at dag
gers-drawing last winter. And then there
are Mr. Wilson'alriende aleo to be attend

does not think they' will agree with her
own (donde.' In short its quite a dilemma."
Uncles, moreover, expect their advice to
be taken about the situation of a house,
and aunts aheut the choice of curtains and
crockery, and thegentleman must drag his
bride through fifty streets he never was. in
before, to-visit friends whom he had not
seen more than once since he was a child,
hut the half of whom, feeling a' reviving
interest in him at the present crisis of his
