Poetry. THE BUTTERFLY. BY. MRS. STLILE. i PRETTY vagrant of the air, Summer's day, froin youth is age, Emblem of the thoughtless fair : Trifles all their care engage ; Near akin their life and thine,

But when wintry storms arise, Both a fleeting summer shine.

Beauty fades, and pleasure dies ; Short delight your charms impart, Me let nobler cares einploy, Charms to catch the human heart : Cares which terminate in joy, Hearts that can be caught with show, Ere the summer sunbeams flee, The virtuoso or the beau. .

Let me, like the frugal bee, Thoughtless nymphs are butterflies, Well improve the smiling hour, Different species, larger size ; Gathering sweets from every flower, Strangers both to peedful care,

O may virtue's charms be mine, Fluttering, roving here and there ; Charms that still increasing shine! Başking in the vernal ray,

Tliese will cheer the wintry gloom, Trifling out the summer's day : These will last beyond the tomb. A

TO CORRESPONDENTS. To give room for the interesting life of Mr. Tennent, we have been obliged to discontinue, for this number, the life of Luther, and to omit several communications prepared for insertion.

We invite the particular attention of our readers to a piece on Religious Sincerity, inserted in this number, which is from the pen of a highly respected foreign correspondent.

2. will accept our thanks for his seasonable, pious, and useful thoughts, excited by the late, eclipse. We wish an early.communication of the remainder for the next number.

Pastor's Survey of the Churches, No. 3, shall, if possible, appear in our next number.

We are happy, after so long silence, to hear again from our esteemed and able correspondent, CONSTANS. We hope soon to gratify our readers with his seventh Letter to a Brother.

IMPARTIALITy is received. . It is our pleasure to gratify our friends and correspondents in all cases consistent with the nature of our work, especially where the honour of American literature is concerned. We readily admit, with our correspondent, that the Review in the Anthology, referred to, and several others in that work, doserve severe censure, as being without correct taste, and indicating not only strong prejudices against the genius and literature of our country, but in other respects a very bad spirit. But as it is our fixed determination to avoid filling our consecrated pages with angry and fruitless controversy on any subjects, our correspondent, we presume, will readily excuse us in declining his request, and in advising him to seek another and more appropriate channel for his communication. The wishes of his friend can be better fulfilled by us in a different way,

We have on our files, reviews of a number of sermons lately preached, and of other recent publications, which shall appear, as fast as the pages in that department of our work will admit them. "
