Near the Lake where drooped the willow,
.• Long time ago,
Where the rock throws book the billow,
Brighter than snow—
Dwelt a maid, beloved and cherished,
By high and luw ;
But with autumn's leaf she perished,
Long time ago!
Rook, sum treo apt flowing water,
finig limo ago—
Bird, and hoe, and blossom taught lot
Loon's spell to know,
While to iny fluid words she listened,
Murmuring low.
Tenderly her dove eyes glistened,
Long tie ago!
Mingled were our hearts finever—
Long titan ago!
Can 1 now forget her? Never!
No, lest ono ! tio
To her grave those tears are given,
Ever to flow—
She's the star 1 missed from heaven,
Long time ago

• To understand the phenomin; essential
u the very existence of plants and ani
inal,, a few facts derived from observa•
. 'ton and a long train of experiments mus t
be remembered. Were the atmosphere
everywhere at all times, at a uniform
temperature, we should never have hail,
rain or snow. The water absorbed try it
in evaporation from the sea aril the earth's
surface would descend in imperceptible
super, or cease to be absorbed by the
air when it was once fully saturated.--
The absorbing power of the atmosphere,
and consegeently its capability to retain
Humidity, is proportionably greater in
warm than in cold air. The air near the
surface of the earth is warmer than it is in ,
the region of the clouds. The higher we
ascend from the earth the colder we find
the atmosphere. Hence the perpetual
snow on very high mountains in the hot
est climates. Now, when from continued
evaporation the air is highly saturated
wi,h vapor—though it he visible—if its
temperature is suddenly reduced by cold
currents descending from above or rushing
from a nigher to it limo latitude, its caps
, city to retain moisture is diminished, Mends
are formed, and the result is ram. Air
condenses as it cools, and, like a sponge
tilled with water and compressed, pours
out the water which its diminished caps•
city cannot hold. How singular yet how
simple, is such au admirable arrangement
for mitering the earth.
The Doom of the World.
What this change is to be, we dare not
conjecture; but wo see in the heavens
themselves sonic traces of destructive ele
ments, and some indications of their pow.
or, the fragments of broken planets—the
descent of stolies upon our globe—the
wheeling comets wielding their loose ma
terials at the solar !unlace—the volcanic
eruptions of our own satellite—the appear.
once of new stars and the disappearance
of others,—are all foreshadows of that Mi
