Sweet was the sound, when oft at evening's close,
Up yonder hill the village murmur rose :
There as I pass’d, with careless steps and slow,
The mingling notes came soften'd from below;
The swain responsive as the milk-maid sung,
The sober herd that low'd to meet their

The noisy geese that gabbled o'er the pool,
The playful children just let loose from school ;
The watchdog's voice that bay'd the whisp'ring

wind, And the loud laugh that spoke the vacant mind; These all in sweet confusion sought the shade, And fill'd each pause the nightingale had made. But now the sounds of population fail, No cheerful murmurs fluctuate in the gale; No busy steps the grass-grown footway tread, But all the bloomy flush of life is fled. All but yon widow'd, solitary thing, That feebly bends beside the plashy spring; She, wretched matron, forced in age for bread, To strip the brook with mantling cresses spread, To pick her wintry faggot from the thorn, To seek her nightly shed, and weep till morn; She only left of all the harmless train, The sad historian of the pensive plain.

memory of history; and it has for numberless ages been the amusement of all the civilized nations of Asia, the Persians, the Indians, and the Chinese. Europe has had it above a thousand years. The Spaniards have introduced it into South America, and thence it has extended into the United States. It is so interesting in itself, as not to need the view of gain to induce persons to engage in it; and for that reason it is very rarely played for money. Those, therefore, who have leisure for such diversions, cannot find one that is more innocent ; and the foresight necessary to complete a good chess-player, renders this game, in its effects on the mind, not merely innocent, but profitable to the vanquished, as well as to the victor.


But, O my Muse, what numbers wilt thou find,
To sing the furious troops in battle join'd!
Methinks I hear the drum’s tumultuous sound,
The victor's shout and dying groans confound;
The dreadful burst of cannon rend the skies,
And all the thunder of the battle rise.
'Twas then great Marlbro's mighty soul was

That, in the shock of charging hosts unmoved,
Amidst confusion, horror, and despair,
Examined all the dreadful scenes of war:
