Pretty belles, with rosy faces,
Various forms I oft assume,
Erst at Thebes (in Plutarch find it
Hence, perchance, you think me cruel;
Bards of the Repository,
A ND ftill muft beauty's faireft charm
A Breathe o'er my soul its wancon fires, Still paflion wake the soft alarm
of trembling hopes and wild delires; O Ay, thou dear-deluding dream!
O hence, ye scenes to fancy dear!
No more. I'll shed the penfive tear.
Free as the light-wing'd airs of May,
That wanton kiss each rofy sweet, I'll laugh the moments wild away,
And court loose pleasure's glitering feat. The song, the dance, and Bacchus' smile,
Shall give to joy the melting hour ; No more shall love, with secret guile,
Win a soft soul to beauty's power.
Ah, me! poor weak unguarded beart,
I feel return the fick’ning pain ;
And And once again all fad and flow,
I wander through the moon-light grove,
With sweec notes my lute of love. .
Go, gentle lute, with softest air,
Breathe pity o'er my Celia's breast;
Her smile of love shall crown me blert.
And sure the maid, whose tender eye
Smiles as the dewy ftar of eve: .. .

Charm each long hour cill morning light
And when the ghastly, form of deaths
Shall swim before these mournful eyes,
Heaves, painful heares, long lab’ring light :
Shall foothe to peace my trembling breast; !

On TEMPERANCE and SOBRIETY. From “ An Analysis of
the PRINCIPAL Duties of Social. Life written in Imi. tation of Rochefoucault, in a series of Letters to a young Gen. tleman, on bis Entrance into the World. By John Andrews, L.L.D.” .
AILY obfervation will afford you continual proof, that a
regular course of living, like wholesome laws and regu. lations in a commonwealth, is the only infallible means of giving strength and permanency to the constitution of both body and mind.
Sobriety and temperancé, like venerable families, whose worth and services to the public are recorded in the grateful acknowledgement of men, seem, by their necessity and importance, to have claimed more notice and praise than any of those qualifica. tions whose peculiar intent is to perfect and preserve our per. fonal faculties.
Like sovereigns eager to reward the merit of useful and den serving subjects, we are lavish in the titles we bestow on fobriety and temperance. Well indeed may we stile them the purelt fountains of health, the source and promoters of cheartalness and joy, and the support of all internal and external accom. plishments; fince they alone can lengthen youth, invigorate manhood, comfort age, and, in short, animate life throughout its whole progress.
