TO ADELA.

LADY, by the stars that glisten

In yon conscious arch above,
By the viewless forms that listen

To my plighted vow of love,
By this heart which fondly flingeth

All its incense on thy shrine,
Speak the word that rapture bringeth,

Whisper, dearest, thou art mine.

O delay not ;

bitter sorrow For thy coyness have I borne; Let me not, another morrow,

Feel within the festering thorn!
Ah! that gentle smile thou wearest

Speaks of pity for my pain ;
Bless thee! bless thee! sweetest, dearest !

Let me see that smile again.

Lady, do those witching glances,

And that bosom's gentle swell, And the soft blush that entrances,

Sign a joy words cannot tell ? Speak they not the first of blisses,

First on earth, and first above ? Seal the holy bond with kisses,

Holy — for the bond is love.

ELAH.

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS.

" A Child of Nature" is indeed a natural ; he has " wandered abroad” twice to no purpose : we advise him for the future to stay at home and keep quiet. " Mother Goose" we presume is so well appreciated, that there is no need of attempting to unfold her beauties in Harvardiana. Complaint of the letter H,” “Characters," “ The College Bell,” “Friendship and Love," “ Farewell,” 66 The Grave,” and “X: I. O.” are inadmissible.
