Sons of the Seine, the Rhine, the Po! Shake off your chains, your sighs forego ; True was the blow, th' associate blow,
And Heaven the union crown'd.
Peace to the world to France be peace :
May of the brave implore :
And France is France once more.
Peace to the world, and mutual love!
The concord guarantee :
And let the world be free.
Peace to the world! But let the world,
Enjoy its equal claim:
To Christian Europe shame.
Peace to the world !-Be France the first
But should she prove untrue;
Just freed from Slavery, should she rave
Soon will her plagues renew!
Peace to the world !-be this our prayer.
For Afric's helpless throng:
Then join the British Song.
MARGARETTA TO REBECCA.
January 1st, 1817.
The year is gone!-another year,
With all its changeful hours : But, through each change, we still are here,
And every wish is ours.
The year is come!-another year
As changeful as the last; 0! may the hand still guide us here
That led us through the past.
Change through all being there must be ;
For such is nature's law : But nature's self must change, should we
Our early love withdraw.
ON THE DEATH OF THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE OF WALES.
There was a star whose opening eye
It was a star whose influence shed
Amid the train of yesternight
It is not fallen :-0 rather say,
TO MY LITTLE GRANDSON,
On his first noticing and being riveted by the appearance of
the Moon, 11th December, 1818.
Infant sage! still gaze
above; They are realms of
and love :
And when thy course beneath the sun
Written and left behind at Buxton, on passing through it,
September 9th, 1823.
Where is the Spirit that bestows
This healing in the spring ?
And makes the cripple sing ?
Where is the Power that piles the hills,
Or splits their marble sides?
And leads their sparry tides?
ye, who in propitious hour
Your course have hither bent-
Your tottering steps that sent.
Behold his mercy and his might;
Pause, tremble, and adore :
And tempt his wrath no more !
Many of those who have watched the progress of our periodical literature during the present century, will have traced the history, and regretted the extinction, of “ The British REVIEW;" which, from the beginning of 1811 to nearly the end of 1822, was published quarterly, under the able superintendence of Mr. Roberts, the author of the “Looker On.” To this Review Mr. Good, who had long cherished habits of the closest intimacy with Mr. Roberts, contributed several articles; of which, however, I have not been able to obtain a complete list. I need not hesitate to assign to him A Review of the Physiognomical System of Drs. Gall and Spurzheim, in No. 11.–An Account of Townsend's Character of Moses; and of Professor Adelung's Mithridates, or History of Languages, in No. 12.-A Review of Dr. Marshman's Chinese Grammar; and another of Sismondi on Spanish Literature, in No. 13. Several other articles were jointly contributed by these literary friends; but I am not able precisely to specify them, and feel no temptation to deal in conjecture.
In the year 1820, Mr. Good, pursuant to the advice of several medical friends, and the earnest entreaty of others, entered upon a more elevated department
