List tis the voice of the Midnight Boll As it peals Forth Tho solemn time of rest and repose it seems to Tell and sadly it echoes Over Mountain and Dell the notes of its full toned chime. Licit it brings to the Vine covered cot for wearied spirits Are there and sorrow and trouble alike Are forgot. In the depth of the slumber which press eth not on the brow Aliulis saddened with care. But anguish is fraught with the Midnight hour to the base and the wretched of heart and thou a mid the splendor of Hull nit Bower remorse with its deep and relentless Power will not from the guilty depart. A i dread Are the deeds of crime and fraud which Are done in the Midnight hour the Assassin staks a blushing abroad where none can View hut Tho Eye of god Vilh fiendish and vengeful Power. The Wail of despair ascends from the slave As he feels the galling Chain arid he knows that naught on Earth can save from the Yoke of bondage worse than the grave we hich Ever will Brand his name. But the echoed sound of the Midnight Bell a ounces the christians Delight of hallowed Joy it hastens to Tell. And peace which no where else can dwell. But in seeking Jehovah a sight. And hark the sounds of confession and prayer Are mingled i h Midnight a chime and the breathing of penitence Rise in the air.

Byron no doubt captivated the image Avion of his Wile but it i Certin that her heart was never touched. She Muy have admired but she never loved. Those who marry merely for n name covered though it May be with the laurels of an admiring world will find it n Worth less Bauble compared with that enduring happiness which flows from Mutual feelings sympathies and pursuits. One should be loved As a Man and not As the successful author not of the Able advocate not As the eloquent senator not As the victorious Soldier no Man they Sny is n hero in the eyes of his Valet. How True this is in the of a wife and where there is an exception to this Case there you will find More of Admi Juliun than love and More of distrust than either.
