I have not felt o'er seas of sand The rocking of the desert bark; Nor laved at Hebron's fount my hand, By Hebron's palm-trees cool and dark Nor pitched my tent, at even fall, On dust where Job of old has lain, Nor dreamed beneath its canvas wall The dream of Jacob o'er again. One vast world page remains unread; How shine the stars in Chaldea's sky How sounds the reverend pilgrim's tread! How bests the heart with GOD so How round gray arch and column lone The spirit of the old time broods, And sighs on all the winds which moan Along the sandy solitudes In thy tall cedars, Lebanon, 1 have not heard the nations' cries, Nor seen thy eagles stooping down Where buried Tyre in ruin lies. The Christian's piayer I have not said In Tadmir's temples of decay. Nor startled with my dreary tread Thc waste where Memnon's empire lay Nor havo I from thy hallowed tide. Oh, Jordan heard the low lament, Like that sad wail along thy side, Which Israel's mournful Prophet sent! Nor thrilled within that grotto lone, Where, deep in night, the Bard of Kings Felt hands of fire direct his own, And sweep for Goo the conscious strings! 1 have not climbed to Olivet, Nor hid me where rny Saviour lay, And left Hit, trace of tears, as yet By angels eyes unwept away Nor watched at midnight's solemn time, Thc garden where His prayer and groan, Wrung by Ilia sorrow and our crime, Ro-e to one listening ear alone! I have not kissed the rock-hewn grot Where in His mother's arms he lay. Nor knelt upon the sacred spot Where His last footsteps pressed Ihc clay: Nor looked on that sad mountain head. Nor smote my sinful breast, where wide His arms tc folrl the world Ho spread, And bowed His head to bless, and died Louise, conversation A DOMESTIC SCENE.

Antonio, was intrusted to the care of its' giandfather, who treated it with much severity. By him it was sent to pass an autumn at Paradazzi, two or three leagues from Possagno, at the house of an Italian senator, a. friend of his, whose name was Falicro. The latter observing the intelligence of the little peasant, and pleased with the ability he evinced in carving stone, and shaping clay, placed his as a pupil with a clever scslptor called Toretto." "What your majesty knows all these minute details of rny private life V' ex- claimed Canova in surprise.

"Welcome to 'France, my dear Ca- charms captivated his heart, Bettina Biasi; she was just fourteen.
