THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS. How oft for love ye blush or bleed, Sweet charmers of the flowery mead! With wordless tongues ye fondly speak The loves of timid ones and meek: Ye tell the maid the youth would sip The nectar from her honied lip; And sweetly falls her modest eyes When in thy voice she hears his sighs. Sweet Flowers! whose alluring chain Enchants the maiden or the swain; Your breath perfumed, your eyes of blue, Bear many a tale, both fond and true. How oft a throb of pure love glows, Warm'd by the whispers of the Rose! Where Pinks and Pansies lead the train, The heart will seldom woo in vain! Sweet Flowers! weep not the decree That layeth cruel hands on ye, And rudely from the parent spray Beareth the op'ning bud away. Though love and beauty be your own, Far deeper springs of both are known; So be your mission still divine, To die upon Affection's shrine.

For the Fringe,
More to our taste is the reply by E. A. H., and this we commend to "A Bachelor's" attention:Is woman's mind so very light? Ungrateful man !-such words to write : When sorrow comes, and come it must, In woman's kindness then you'll trust. Has not woman's gentle care Soothed man when driven to despair? Has not her smile such comfort given, It seem'd a ray of joy from heaven? Oh! say not, then, her mind is light, That shines in sad affliction's night, That leads your thoughts to hopes of heaven, And prays your sins may be forgiven ! The controversy must end here. E. A. H. has certainly the best of it. May Bachelors and Spinsters become reconciled!
HAPPINESs was born a twin.
THINK with truth, and work with firmness. A THING of beauty is a joy for ever.-Keats. NONE is a fool always, every one sometimes. GRATITUDE is the music of the heart, when its chords are swept by the breeze of kindness.
THOUGH we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.
WAR is an inheritance of the savage state, dis
guised by ingenious institutions and false eloquence. It is the abyss in which all channels of abundance are swallowed up.
EVERY act of the man inscribes itself in the memories of his fellows, and in his own manners and face. In nature this self-registration is incessant, and the narrative is the print of the soul.
THE gardener saves every slip, and seed, and peach-stone; his vocation is to be a planter of plants. Not less does the writer attend his affair; whatever he beholds, or experiences, comes to him as a model, and sits for its picture.
THE faculty of genius is the power of lighting its own fire. As an instance of this, reader, Poverty saw a poor barber in his shop at Preston, in Lancashire; but, in a comparatively short time, Perseverance looked upon him as Sir Richard Arkwright!
THE beautiful, the harmonious, the sublime, associated with external things, are but the inward sentiments of man's own soul, awakened by those things, and breathed out upon them, till they become, to his imagination and his feelings, invested as with an intelligent and sympathising spirit, which holds communion with him in his various moods of mirth, melancholy, poetic musing, and solemn meditation.
FROM the earliest ages, poetry has diverted the human family with its melody from the mindfulness of grovelling circumstances, and the dull monotony of every day life, to converse with the Great First Cause, through the medium of a reverential survey of his works. In the primitive ages, to listen to the descriptive songs of the bards, was to learn the history and philosophy of their country; and, from the most remote period of civilization, the poet has ever been the chronicler of virtuous deeds, and the biographer of exalted characters, ant
