f *ROM THE LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE.

A SONG.
By JMrs. Opie.

THEN be it so, and let us part,
Since love like mine has fail'd to move thee;
But do not think this constant heart
Can ever cease, ingrate, to love thee.
No—spite of all the cold disdain,
I’ll bless the hour when first I met thee,
And rather bear whole years of pain
Than e'en for one short hour forget thee.
Forget thee! No.

Still Memory, now my only friend,
Shall with her soothing art endeavour
My present anguish to suspend,
By painting pleasures lost for ever.
She shall the happy hours renew,
When full of hope and smiles I met thee,
And little thought the day to view
When thou woudst wish me to forget thee.
Forget thee! No.

Yet I have lived to view that day,
To mourn my past destructive blindness,
To see now turn'd with scorn away
Those eyes once filled with answering kindness. |
But go—farewell! and be thou blest,
If thoughts of what I feel will let thee:
Yet though thy image kills my rest,
"Twere greater anguish to forget thee.
Forget thee! No.

t-s FROM the S.A.M. E.

WRITTEN IN A YOUNG LADY'S PRAYER-BOOK.

YOUTH, beauty, health, and mirthful ease,
Have each their sev’ral pow'rs to please:
But where's the nymph, among the fair,
That knows the charm, the pow'r of prayer?
Believe me, Hebe, in this book,
The brightest eye may deign to look;
May seek, may find a better grace
Than e'er adorned the fairest face.
Yet the recital of the words,
Nor love, nor joy, nor grace affords:
When prayer its proper music brings,
The soul itself must strike the strings.
The pious heart, with love sincere,
May breath its sighs in secret here;
Or burn with joys to all unknown,
But breasts of angels and its own.

Speeches of Lord Erskine, when at the Bar, on Miscellaneous Subjects. 8vo. pp. 248. Ridgeway, London. 1812.

IT is now a considerable time since we called the attention of our readers to the very interesting and important publication of which this volume forms the sequel. The opinions then expressed, although known to be those entertained by the enlightened profession of which Lord Erskine was the chief ornament, have, as might be expected from party violence and ignorance, encountered some opposition;–chiefly, however, among persons at a distance from the theatre where his talents were displayed, and not the most capable, in other respects, of forming a sound judgment on such subjects. The remarks which we made on the political persecutions of 1794, have been also attacked; and, as might be expected, with some bitterness, by the few remaining adherents of the system,-and the supporters of those weak and contemptible politicians who are seeking to remove the worst enemy they have to contend with—popular discussion—by reviving the measures formerly pursued against the liberty of the press. Having now had some leisure for maturely weighing both branches of the subject, the merits of the orations in question, and the character of the measures of 1794,-and having had ample opportunities of observing the way in which those topics are canvassed by such as are competent to handle them, we have no hesitation in avowing, that our sentiments remain wholly unchanged. Not a word have we heard derogatory to the warm and unbought applause extorted from us by the great services which Lord Erskine has rendered to the cause of liberty; and we fancy that all who have had time to study the speeches,
