All solemnly our dirge shall speak,

Upon the knee we'll bend, And tho' each bursting heart would break,

Mourn this departing friend.

Solem and slow the harp shall sound,

And sweetly shall the song
From heart to lip be sent around,

To tell our grief so strong.
And every eye to night must weep,

Like mourners o'er a tomb—
Those inward tears that do not sleep,

But linger on in gloom.

No! no!—the sunshine of the bowl

Unclouded now is seen, The spirit's quick career will roll,

Nor sorrow intervene. Our dirge-our requiem cast aside,

Grande Fantaisie sur le théme Ecossais. 0! Logie o' Buchan-JOHANNING and WHATMORE.The theme of a piece selected for variations, should, in our opinion, be kept entirely to the simplicity of the original, and not in the least embellished or disguised by any superfluous notes. The composer of this piece, does not seem to entertain the same ideas as he has in the second part of the subject, even departed from the air itself. In fact, the air is a text, which, if not impressed clearly and intelligibly on the mind in the first instance, we lose the charm that would be otherwise created by a judicious division of the subject into different heads, which again should all be placed before the mind with a close reference to the original, throughout the whole piece.

The variations are brilliant, especially the sixth, with the chromatic passages, and requires considerable execution.—The introduction of the Scoich Air, “ There's nae luck about the house,” is judiciously chosen as a finale.

Tis summer and the azure sky

In mellow'd lustre beams, And soft and sweet the Zephyr's sigh

With pregnant odour teems;

The leaf is green, the bud is bright,

The blossom in its bloom, And flow'rs, in rain-bow beauty bright,

Breathe forth intense perfume.

The groves and hills with music vie,

With music flows the stream, And spells of dreary sweetness lie

Bencath the sun-set gleam.

Yet though, beheld by other eyes,

This smiles a fairy sphere, To me 'tis rob’d in chilling guise,

For oh! thou art not here!

Chanson a Boire.
We'll hymn a requiem o'er the bowl,

Ere its bright contents are drunk;
They flashed their sunshine thro' each soul,

That else in care had sunk.

E'en thus joy's captivating hues

Were dark and drear to me, And life its Circcan charms must lose, l'nsecur-unshar'd with thee!
