BYRON—The Dream. St. 3. Dreams in their development have breath, And tears, and tortures, and the touch of

joy, They have a weight upon our waking thoughts, They take a weight from off vur waking

toils,
They do divide our being.

BYRON— The Dreum. St. 1.
I had a dream which was not all a dream.

p. BYRON— Darkness. The fisher droppeth his net in the stream, And a hundred streams are the same as

one; And the maiden dreameth her love-lit dream;

And what is it all, when all is done? The net of the fisher the burden breaks, And always the dreaming the dreamer wakes. 9. ALICE Cary-Lover's Diary.

Dreams, Children of night, of indigestion bred.

As thou these ashes, little brook! will bear
Into the Avon, Avon to the tide
Of Severn, Severn to the narrow seas,

An emblem yields to friends and enemies
How the bold teacher's doctrine, sanctified
By truth shall spread throughout the world

dispersed. a. WORDSWORTH -- Ecclesiastical Sketches.

DREAMS. Sweet sleep be with us, one and all! And if upon its stillness fall The visions of a busy brain, We'll have our pleasure o'er again, To warm the heart, to charm the sight, Gay dreams to all! good night, good night!

Sleep brings dreams; and dreams are often most vivid and fantastical, before we have yet been wholly lost in slumber. m. ROBERT MONTGOMERY BIRD - Calavar.

EATING. When th. Sultan Shah-Zaman Goes to the city Ispahan, Even before he gets so far As the place where the clustered palm trees

are, At the last of the thirty palace gates, The pet of the Harem, Rose in Bloom, Orders a least in his favorite room, Glittering square of colored ice, Sweetened with syrups, tinctured with

spice; Creams, and cordials, and sugared dates; Syriad apples, Othmanee Quinces, Limes and citrons and apricots, And wines that are known to Eastern princes. Thomas BAILEY ALDRICH – When the

Sultan Goes to Ispahan. I sing the sweets I know, the charms I feel, My morning incense, and my evening meal, The Sweets of Hasty Pudding, BARLOW– The Hasty Pudding,

Canto I. Wouldst thou both eat thy cake and have it? g. HERBERT - The Temple. The Size

turus, And sweeten'd by all that is sweetest in life Toan turbot, bisque, ortolans, eaten in strite! But if ont of humour, and hungry, alone A man should sit down to dinner, each ono Of the dishes of which the cook chooses to

spoil With a horrible mixture of garlic and oil, The chances are ten against one, I must own, He gets up as ill-tempered as when he sat

down. j. OWEN MEREDITH -- Lucile. Pt. I.

Canto II. St. 27.
