The pure white cloth above the shrine
The consecrated bread and wine-
All was the same--I found no trace
Of sorrow in that holy place.
One hurried glance I downward gave
My foot was on my brother's grave!

And years have past—and thou art now

Forgotten in thy silent tomb— And cheerful is my mother's brow,

My father's eye has lost its gloom,
And years have past-and death has laid

Another victim by thy side ;
With thee he roams, an infant shade,

But not more pure than thee he died.
Blest are ye both! your ashes rest
Beside the spot ye lov'd the best;
And that dear home, which saw your birth,
O’erlooks you in your bed of earth.
But who can tell what blissful shore
Your angel-spirits wander o'er?
And who can tell what raptures high
Now bless your immortality!

My boyish days are nearly gone,

My breast is not unsullied now;
And worldly cares and woes will soon

Cut their deep furrows on my brow
And life will take a darker hue
From ills my Brother never knew.
And I have made me bosom friends,

And lov'd and link'd my heart with others; But who with mine his spirit blends,

As mine was blended with my brother's!

When years of rapture glided by,

The spring of life's unclouded weather,
Our souls were knit, and thou and I,

My brother, grew in love together.
The chain is broke which bound us then-
When shall I find it's like again?

SUCCESS OF NO.

Jovis 90 die Novembris, 1820. All preliminaries having been discussed, (N. B. By preliminaries I mean a good substantial dinner, composed of beef-steaks, and a Mrs. Garraway pudding) Mr. Golightly prepared the punch-bowl, and Mr. Courtenay, after ringing for the Secretary's pen and ink, produced his Green Bag, and informed the Meeting that he was ready to proeceel to business. Some time elapsed before silence could be obtained, as Sir Francis was engaged in an argument with Mr. M. Sterling upon the expediency of the Bill of Pains and Penalties, and Mr. P.O'Connor was loud in a dispute with Mr. Golightly upon the propriety of adding another lemon to the punch. When these difficulties were surmounted, and order finally restored, the PRESIDENT rose and opened the business of the evening in the following manner :

“Gentlemen,-The first topic to almost unnecessary to add that our which I request your attention, is sale has been astonishingly rapid the success which our first Number (Hear! hear! hear ! from Mr. has met with (Hear, hear, Burton.)-It is allowed by every hear!)
