-The following sweet and touching lines were
written by the Hon. St. George Tucker, of Virgi
nia, on being solicited to know why he has ceaseci
in court the Poetic muse f They are full of feel
rg, simplicity and truth and cannot but find their
way to ihu heart. . In them we discover ao e'eva
ti.n of -spirit -that can look back oh the changes of
time with a dignified complacenry unmtngled witn
regret, and a lively christian hope, which points
to: the future and anticipates the joys of Heavn.
It was not from the rich treasures of his highly
cultivated mind that . this venerable man derives
this desirable temper, but from the study and Ob
servance of the. roiM and benevolent injunctions of
"the Father of Peace" Such a State of Inind a
lone is happiness to all it ia desirable ; and, hap
pily, to all attainable. '
DAYS of my youthl ye have glided away ;
Hairs of my youth I ye are frosted and gray ;
JEyes of my youth ! your keen sight is no more ;
Cheeks of, ray youth 1 ye arc furrowed all o'er
Strength of myyouth 1 'all your vigor i gone 1 1
