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. If that be not the case, and if we be mistaken, we must take it for granted that the theatres on the Continent are more auspicious to divinity than our own; for should such a drama appear at DruryLane, it would, most assuredly, be remanded to the pulpit.

We dismiss this Writer, under a firm persuasion, that his imagination is superior to his judgment, and that his heart is better than either.

ART. VIII.
Art DAimer, et Poefies Diverses, De M. Bernard,—The Art of Love,

and other Poems, by M. Bernard. 8vo. THESE Poems are introduced with a complimentary epi-1 gram on the Author, by Mr. Voltaire, entitled, Les Trois Bernards. The Three Bernards: the Saint, the Financier, and the Poet. The last of whom he says, will be known when the other two are forgot : and, indeed, it seems very probable. There is a delicate vein of wit and fancy, as well as an easy gentility in the verses of M. Bernard, which will sufficiently appear from the few following stanzas on bis being in love with a shepherdess.

Quand les traits frappent mes yeux,
Les rangs ne me touchent gueres :
Doris connait peu d Ayeux,
Mais mille amours sont ses freres:
Son cour tout au sentiment
Ne veut esprit, ni systéme :
Aussi tel eft son amant ;
Ce n'eft pas Newton qu'elle aime.

Baifer,

Baiser, regard, & foupir,
Voilà tout notre langage :
Mon etude eft son plaisir;
Mon plaisir est fon ouvrage.
Sa voix est le fon du cour,
Qui d'un seul mot fait tout dire,
Son visage est une fleur,
Qu' épanouit le sourire.
Deux ames semblent presser
Son sein qui croit, & s'eleve :
La Pudcur le fait baisser;

Et le desir le jouleve.
Something a little like it in English:

Delia's smile is wealth to me,
Wealth and rank and anceftry;
She the noblest lineage proves,
Sister of a thousand loves !
Eyes that languish, heart that glows
All the science Delia knows !
Charms like these could learning give?
Love with wit can never live.
The kiss, the figh, the tender look
Our language--all from Nature's book !
Our studies only to impart
Mutual pleasure to the heart.
Her voice the soul's soft music plays,
In one sweet word a thousand says !
Her face, a flower of vernal morn,
That opens, and a smile is born!
The regions of her beauteous breast
Seem of two gentle souls poffeit.
Advancing now with fond desire,

They now with modesty retire.
. We recommend these poems of M. Bernard, as the most ele.
gant French verses we have lately met with..
