he endures, because every one brings him nearer to that final object on which his hope and his soul were suspended. Let the Atheist approach and endeavour to deprive him of that hope, tell him that his sufferings are without remedy, that he has - nothing to expect from a Being who does not exist ! Would
not the unnatural wretch inspire, on such an occasion, the highest horror ? Would, not his odious system appear in the truest light? And would not the poor mán be an image of mankind in general; for who dares say to his heart, Thou haft no hope?
Though we do most readily give every degree of credit to this suggestion that so meritorious an idea can deserve, yet surely we must conclude that the Author's piety and benevolence far exceed his knowledge of the world.

Bernard, which will sufficiently appear from the few following stanzas on bis being in love with a shepherdess.

Baiser, regard, & foupir,
Et le desir le jouleve.
Delia's smile is wealth to me,
They now with modesty retire.
