Poetry by JESSICA RANKIN.
Composed by M. W. BALFE.

Oh! take me to thiy heart again!

I never more wili grieve thee :)
All joys are fied and hope is dead

If I indeed must leave thee.
Forgive the wild and angry words

This way ward heart hath spokep :
I did not dream those cherished chords
So lightly could be broken.

Oh! take me to thy heart again.
I think how very sad and lone

This life would be without thee;
For all the joys my heart hath known

Are closely twined around thee.
Oh! teach me to subdue the pride

That wounded thice so blindly;
And be once more the gentle guide
Who smiled on me so kindly.

Then-take me to thy heart again.

“THE DEW-DROP AND THE ROSE.”

Poetry by Isabella Hampion.

When near ihat sweet flower, to seek solt reposc,

The dew-drop instinctively felt there hall come

A rival-his loved one to prove,
A shelter he sought next the heart of the rose,

And whispered soit vows of his love.
Still nearer came that sunbeam gay,

As he called the rose his bride.
Those words the dew-drop beard him say,

Then drooped his had and died.

Rouse ye Palikari,

To the coming Fight.
What though fres surround us,
Though their chains have bound us,
We will live as freemen live,
Or die as warriors die.
Come with weapons gleaming-
Come with banners streaming,
Raise your glorious battle cry,
Suliote shall be free.

“ THE CHRISTMAS ROSE."

Poetry by M. A. STODART. Composed by LOVELL PHILLIPS. Price 28. Od. « The Christmas Rose! The Christmas Ruso!

Mid wintry frost and snow it blows;
And opes its portals pure and fair,
When winds have swept tho gay parterre.
Just like a true and constant friend,
Whose faith no storms of life can bend;
Not tho mere friend of summer day,
But firm when joy hath passed away.
This flower is like the joys that shine,
In sorrow's hour and lite's declino,
When youth hath passed and pleasure flown,
And sad the spirit sighs alone;
Then marvel not that this I twino
My thoughts around this gift of thine,
And muse on hopes and joys that last,
And bloom through lifu's inost piercing blast."

“SYMPATHY,”

POETRY BY ELLIS BELL,
COMPOSED BY E. AGUILAR,

Price 2s.
There should be no despair for you,

While nightly stars are burning ;
While evening pours its silent dow,

And sunshino gilds the moruing. There should be no de pair, though tears

May flow down like a river:
Are not the best-beloved of years

Around your heart for ever.
They weer, you weep, it must be so;

Winds sigh as you are sighing.
And winter sheds its griet in snow,

Whore autumn's leaves are lying. Yet, these revire, and from their fate,

Your fate cannot be parted; Then, journcy on, if not elate, Still, never broken hearted.

Thy Saviour is waiting to bid thoe God speed, • He turns none away from his duor in th ir need.

“ARE THEY MEANT BUT TO DECEIVE ME.”

Poetry from the Polish.
Composed by A. REICHARDT. Price 2s. 64.

Are they meant but to deceive me,

Those fond words that tell of love
Al! for ever it would grieve me

If their falsehood I should prove.
Though my heart would trust them gladly,

Though belief, alone, is bliss,
Yet I still must ponder sadly,

Ah! what bitter pain is this.
All my inmost soul conceding,

Shall I sternly answer No?"
Or each scret wish revealing

Shell my words wettere i filow,
Eve lingering, never speaking,

Here my thoughts shall I express
For my heart it you are steking,

Strive to find it by a guess.
