When the last red light, the farewell of dty,
From the rock and the river is passing away,
When the air with a deep'ning hush is fraught
And the heart grows burdened with tender
Then let it be,!
When will ye think of dhe, kind friends ?
When will ye think of me?-
When the rose of the rich midsummer time
i. filled with the huss of its glorious prime;
When ye gather its bloom, as in bright hours
From the walks where my footsteps no more
may tread;
Then let it be!

When will ye think of me, sweet friends?
When will ye think of me
When tire sudden tears o'erflow your eye
At the sound-of some olden melody;
When ye hear the voice of a mountain stream,
When ye feel the charm of a poet's dream;
Then let it be!
Thus let my memory be with you friends'!
Thus ever think of.me!
Kindly and gently, but as of one
For whoni 'tis- wqll to be fled and gone;
As of a bird from a chain unbound,
As of a, wanderer whose home is found :
So let it be.
It is now between wo and three years
.since a young Engi human, with his sister,
a beautiful and accomplished girl of six-
teen, arrived in this country. Having
business to transact hpre, and thinking thai
a change of climate and sea air might be
beneficial to her health, he brought her

this beautifully and interesting female, was
the vict' of that disease which, in hi
desolat.mArcli, sweeps so -many of the
young nt beautiful into the grave. Con.
sumpton had fastened upon her young
a) delicate frapm, and although for .a
tume it appeared to ,.ave been checked, it
suddenly re-appeared with all the symp.
toms of speedy and rapid dissolution. Hei
brother was immeLiately sent for, but the
letters did not reach i him until it was to(
late. I then learned that sh2hbad a love
whose anxiety for -aer healtkhad ducec

Her situation was now truly distr4esig,

SThe next morning I went to visit her.
1 found her still in her chair, but evidently
more weak and exhausted; The bright
kye and unnatural bloornm were still there,
xut her countenance was n',re sunk and
,ollow. She smiled when she saw me
'enter, and motioned me to her; told me in
'a voice much more feeble than I had be-
Afore known, that I had come to bid her
farewell; and pointing to the sea, which
was visible from the window near which
she sat, she added in a half playful man-
ner, 'I shall soon embark; I feel that I
have seen the sun rise for the last time,
and pleased myself with the thought that
it is the same sun that shines at home.: I
sit and watch the waters and the breeze,
and the clouds that come froia thoeast,.as
if they could tell me of England, and those
I love.' 'It seems hard to our weak na-
ture,' she resumed after 1 pause, 'to be
