Forgive thee? yes, I do forgive thee,
And bless thee as we part ;
And pray that years may never leave thee,
My agony of heart.
I call no shadowy malison
Upon thy fair young brow :
But would thy life would ever run
As sunwardly as now.

For smiles so oft withdrawn—
That trusting love received too slowly
The lessons of thy scorn.
That thou hast had thy triumph hour
Unquestioned and complete,
When prompted by a spell of power,
I knelt me at thy feet.
'Tis over now—thy charm is broken,
The feverish dream bath fled;
And palled away lik words unspoken
The vows that I have said.
I give thee back thy plighted word i
Its tones of love shall be
Like music by the slumbered heard,
A dreamers melody.
Go now—the light of hope upon thee;
Thy lover's claims are o'er ;
A thousand smiles thy charms have won thee
They'll win a thousand more.
For beauty hath a charmed spell
Upon the human will ;
Though fruits the heart it vans so well,
It bath its homage still.
Go, blue•eyed girl ; the proud shall meet thee
Aud gladden in thy smile,
And flattery's pleasant hp shall greet thee,
With the bland words of guile.
Go, try the recklessness of earth,
With that young heart of thine;
And lavish its uuwasted mirth
On pleasure's every shrine.
Thy pleasant path may yet be shaded,
A shadow cross thy sun ;
The rosy wreaths which love bath braided
Fall from thee one by one.
The flattering vows may pass away,
The lives of love be broken,
And manhood's evil scorn repay
The fondness thou hest spoken.
"LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE."
THE FIRST WEDDING.

The ignorance of this country amonS
otherwise well-informed English folks was
curiously illustrated in the case of General
W-, (a good fellow, but bogus general)
who visited England a few years ago. Ha
ving occasion to pars a few days in a pro
vincial town. which boasted its literary co
terie, he received an invitation through an
acquaintance from Mies Blue Stocking to
attend a soiree. The general of course
went, and being a fine, handsome, agreea
ble fellow, he was quite a lion.
In the course of the evening, Miss Blue,
who had managed to secure his undivided
attention, tapped him playfully with her
fan, and said, "Do you know that you
are a naughty man
.How so, madam,' asked the general.
'Why for deceiving us all so; only eve
ry one in the room has not seen as much
The general became nervous and tho't
of course, that he must have committed
some faux pas; but as the lady seemed
kind and forgiving, he determined to prove
.My dear lady, I am very sorry if 1 have
been guilty of any dereliction; do tell me,
that I may apologize !'
Oh !'said Miss Blue, 'it's only oraten•
ding to be an American !'
'Pretending to be an American ! But I
am an American, madam.'
'Yes, perhaps you live there, but you
are not a native, you know.'
'On my honor, madam, a real live na•
tive of the groat State of New York.'
'That will do for the company to think,
general,' said the literary lady, 'and of
course I shall not undeceive them ; but you
must know I had a very distinguished A
merican gentleman, who was a native, to
lunch with me this morning, arid I was so
sorry I could not have him to meet with
you to-night. But he was not at all like
you. His raven hair curled in such beau
tilul ringlets around his head, and his com
plexi on was dark, very dark, a perfect
Othello of a fellow;
begging the lady not to expose his little
ruse, in trying to pass MI for an American
he got into a corner and enjoyed his laugh.
The last speech upset my gravity. The
idea of looking upon a lover as an afflic
tion was so droll. But she was evidently
sincere, having before her the example of
her sisters's husband and her drunken bro
