It is also a pleasing1 reflection that the greatest poem of such a poet has Immortality for its theme, and ilia? its point of view" is that of "early childhood." In all this there is something very refreshing at once to mind and heart. Indeed, it is in the accordance of these two gianj elements of our being-thought and tbe higher poetry must always find its source. The greatness of Wordsworth's Ode consists in its giving beautiful and clear expression to thoughts which were previously too occult to be grasped by the ordinary mind. He has translated UH inner mystery into symbols whicli are its fit embodiment. Tbe idea of the poem tbe manifestations of mind iu the child, before the o :ce the proof and They are a proof of it, simply because, b'.'ing with reflection, aud being bathed in benuty which is the of suggest the Divine origin of the la the sweet intuition of tbe child, which makes it grasp sparkling eyes and almost radiant the Beautiful, beforn. it can know by reflection why it is Beau- tiful, if, indeed, ever can be see tiie buddings of a life which must have its roots in the of which, Educa- cat'.on is not a creator, but simply an assist- 'aut. Hence the poet: "Our birth is but a sleep and a toi-getting The soul Lhut rises with us, our li's's Star, Hitth Ir.i its selling. And comelu from afar 1 Nut iu "iitirc forgetluUir-ss, Ami not In utter But trailing clouds glory iln we come From I'rcirl, who is our Imme Heaven lii-s about us iu our infancy Those few lines we do not hesitate to say, fulll all the ends of poetry as well as any tiu ler3 of Wordsworth so admire him as poet, on philosopher anu man. The Ode, after passing through th ing of intuition by reflection, closes with a ae period of reflection, are at 1 the type of immortality. J, S. SKI.LEKS W. U. J.

"What the soul wants at such times is expression. "Wordsworth beautifully notes this in the Ode before us. Looking he says, upon the jnyousness of the earth iu To me alone there came A thcniglit 'of A timely u-.lenuice gave that thought relief, And 1 again am strong. N'o more shall grief of mine the season wrong I hear tiie Echoes thro'.tgh the moiuitains th'.-0'ig The winds come to me from the fields of sleep And all the eaith is gay, eta'. Here a very deep psychology is brought tt Hue and easy expression a fi-eling, inuVed which the soul despaired of t-ver seeing re fleeted back upon her in the word, and whicl iucousemu-uce ministered to melam'holy rathe of that recollection of childhood, which prevents us from becoming materialized, and which keeps us in hope of that :'irect be- holding which wil' be ours when tongue" shall have ceased, and prophecies failed, aud knowl- edge vanished uway The thiiught of our past years iu me dotfi breed Perpetual benediction not on account of ihe simple creed of child- But for thnse first affections, Those i'haduvvy recollections, Which, be they'wliat they may, Are yet the fountain linhl. of all our day, Are yet a ir.aster-light pt all our seeing Uphold us, IIILVU to make Our uoipy years .seem moments in the being Of the eternal silence. In uther words, the appearance of a Divide origin, capable of development, indeed, but not susceptible of denial, was manifest in our hildhood this "trailir g glory1' which came r.a into the world orbs its'eU into n light within us as we move through life, and trem- bles to the great sun from which it em.mateil iu a season ot calm Thougli inland far.we be, Our souls bdTc sight of that iirjmnrtsl sea Which brought us hither Can iu a moment travel thither Aud see the Chililren snort upon the shore, Aud hoar the mighty waters rolling ever mnre." The last liaes of the Ode allude to the fact hat this consciousness of the irniuactality rrhich perpetual uanifeats, and which our recollections of child- loocl cherish, enables us to see a deeper signif- canctf in natural ue, like Hood when he was dying, "to smell the rose xbove the mould "Thanks to the human br which we live, Thanks to its tenderness, its joys and fears, To me the meanest that hiows can give Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears." These lines fitly close the Ode with the ex- pression cf a feeling which can be fitly embod- 'ed in no other form of speech, which is one of be signs of perfect poetry. Ou the whole, this Ode may be said first to bave told us our dream intellectually, and then to have expressed its meaning in that mode best: suited to its own glory and to our, apprehension. And the poems ol which this can be said may almost be counted with one hand upon the fingers of the Tither.

He is evidently an Abolitioni-it, but has heen constrained by experience and obser- vation ot wbat the emancipated negvoes are actually doing, to at lea-it doubt if free Sambo will ever work. We extract the following from his letter: One complains that the negroes insist upon a holiday on Saturday. Another states that they leave the plantation at any hour that they choose and stay awny as long as Ihey pleasti, though the crops may just then be at the most critical .stnge of their growth and, suffering for want of labor.
