Her simple songs of other years
Can bless the heart they balm in tears,
And kindle long-forgotten smiles
In desert lands, and distant isles
Recalling unto them that roam,
The quenchless longing for their home,
And wafting vernal sweetness o'er
The waters, from their native shore.

be believed correct, both the managers and the public are completely satisfied. Under the misnomer of the “ Husband's Mistake, or the Corporal's Wedding"_for the Corporal does not get married— Covent Garden has produced a new petit-comedy,“ done into English” from the same French original of Scribe's “ Fiancée," as that which Planché has re-manufactured into an opera, with Auber's music, for Drury Lane, and in which Madame Vestris, who is engaged there, and to appear for the first time to-morrow evening, is to play the principal character. The Covent Garden version is full of bustle, and has some excellent situations, to which Keeley, as Fritz, the Corporal, and Mrs Gibbs, Ellen Tree, and Bartley, in the other leading parts, did ample justice; though from Planché's tact at these things, I very confidently anticipate that his will far surpass it. The appearance of the Drury Lane Elephant is adjourned sine die; and the new tragedy, so long underlined in the bills, is not yet quite finished! The Adelphi Dwarf, aged 40, and actually 24 inches high only, with a name much longer than himself, is a truly surprising little man, and Messieurs Mathews and Yates may, therefore, now boast of possessing the largest and smallest performers in the world! The Cobourg Elephant is, compared with its rival sister in the Strand, a very diminutive animal, being little more than 6 feet high ; but as Ramkondra is but rising 5, and Miss D'jeck is 25, her present girth and docility give every promise of both size and science some years hence. She appears in a very clever burlesque parody of Beazeley's Adelphi drama; both have a rightful prince and a wrongful prince, and in both there is a rebellion, which, like crows' pests, ought to be pulled down, because, as the author says, both are high trees on !-Such is the present condition of our London drama ; and the only additional announcements I have now to trouble you with, are, that Mr Wade's new farce of the “ Phrenologists" is to be produced at Covent Garden to-morrow; and the real Siamese Twins are to visit Drury Lane, and sit in the Earl of Chesterfield's private proscenium box, on the same evening; for which piece of truly valuable information, Mr Charles Wright, of Champagne notoriety, is my most excellent authority. Can it be necessary for me to say, that every word respecting Quick and Munden's reappearance is entirely fiction?

Oh ! beautiful at fall of day
Such music floats from far away,
When sigbs, at summer's lingering close,
The parting spirit of the rose.
And lovelier still, when soft it breaks
The silence of the moonlight lakes -
Or, dying on the midnight airs,
A dear and dreamy beauty wears,
Like that of pensive songs, that plain
Beneath the latticed bowers of Spain,
And gently woo the dark-eyed maid
To list the lonely serenade,
That o'er the summer night afar,
Seems melting from a distant star.

And sweet, around the winter's hearth,
The strains, at which the mood of mirth
Gives way to feelings more profound-
As I have heard them breathed around
The circle of the young and fair,
That bloom'd in silent beauty there,
When music's mystic joys and woes
In thy heart-thrilling tones arose,
Thou of the Siren-sister band,
The first fair minstrels of the land,




By John Malcolm.
The feelings stirr'd by Music's breath,

Half joy-half sorrow-all divineBlend, like the wreath of love and death,

Where roses with the cypress twine,
When, melting into grief, appears
The joy that seeks relief in tears,
And sorrow sweetens into joy-
As each of each required alloy.
And evanescent gleams of thought,
With wild unearthly beauty fraught
And memories dim, that seem to date
Their sources from a former state,
Awaked by Music's hymned spell,
Float round us—faint, as the farewell
Of long-lost love-o'er slumber's bed,
In angel-visits from the dead,
That in the dreary distance seems
To swoon upon our nightly dreams.

THE LAST SONG. Why should I linger here,

When flowers are faded ?
Quench'd is thy light, my heart,

Thy skies are shaded ;
Gone are thy friends! like leaves

Upon the river;
They stemm'd life's tide awhile,

Then pass'd forever!
Cease, captive spirit ! cease

Thy restless beating !
The welcome hour is nigh.

For thy glad fleeting !
Why should I linger here,

With strangers round me? Loosed is affection's chain

To life that bound me; Nor pleasure now nor pain

The world can bring me ;Earth has no joys to charm,

Nor griefs to sting me! Cease, captive spirit ! cease

Thy restless beating ! The welcome hour is nigh

For thy glad fleeting! Why should I linger here?

The spell is broken! Look on my wasted cheek,

The heart's true token ! Look on my faint dim eyes,

Their lone watch keeping, Sad silent types of woe,

Too full for weeping !
Cease, captive spirit ! cease

Thy last wild beating !
Hush! the wish'd hour is come
For thy glad fleeting!


And oft such sweet emotions rise In Albyn's earlier melodies.
