NIGHT. BY JAMES MONTGOMERY, ESQ. NIGHT is the time for rest;
That brings into the home-sick mind
All we have loved and left behind.
Night is the time for care ;
Brooding on hours mis-spent,
To see the spectre of Despair Upon our own delightful bed !
Come to our lonely tent; Night is the time for dreams ;
Like Brutus midst his slumbering host The gay romance of life,
Startled by Cæsar's stalwart ghost. When truth that is and trath that seems
Night is the time to muse ; Blend in fantastic strise ;
Then from the eye the soul Ah! visions less begailing far
Takes flight, and with expanding views Tban waking dreams by daylight are !
Beyond the starry pole, Night is the time for toil
Descries athwart the abyss of night To plough the Classic field,
The dawn of uncreated light. Intent to find the buried spoil
Night is the time to pray; Its wealthy farrows yield;
Our Saviour oft withdrew Till all is ours that sages taught,
To desert mountains far away, That poets sang or heroes wrought.
So will his followers do ; Night is the time to weep ;
Steal from the throng to haunts untrod, To Fat with unseen tears
And hold communion there with God. Those graves of memory where sleep
Night is the time for death; Tbe joys of other years ;
When all around is peace, Flopes that were Angels in their birth,
Calmly to yield the weary breath, But perished young like things of earth!
From sin and suffering cease ; Nigbe is the time to watch ;
Think of Heaven's bliss and give the sign Oa ocean's dark espanse,
To parting friends ;-such death be mine! To hail the Pleiades, or catch

THE POET'S STUDY.
BY BERNARD BARTON, THE QUAKER POET. OII! sot in ceiled rooms of state,
The moss'd trunk of a scathed tree Cumber'd with books the while,
Should be my only seat ; Would I the Muse's influence wait,
And more than moral tomes to me Os there expect her smile.
That relic should repeat. A rook in some lone church-yard green,
There too in living leafy pride, Fann'd by the summer breeze
Another tree should grow, The living and the dead between,
Whose writhed branches far and wide Would more my fancy please,
Their welcome shade should throw. Not uzto Fancy's power alone
Those boughs, by whisp'ring breezes stirr'd, Should such a seeue appeal :
My canopy should be, Its sober and its chasten'd tone
And every gentle whisper heard Aly inmost heart would feel.
Should tell a tale to me. 2
