There is a solemn sanctuary, founded
By God himself; not for transgressors meant; But that the man oppressed, the spirit-wounded, And all beneath the world's injustice bent, Might turn from outward wrong, turmoil and din To peace within
Each bosom is a temple, when its altar,
O, Bower of Bliss! O, sanctuary holy!
E'en in the flesh, the spirit disembodied,
Unchecked by time and space, may soar elate,
When Earth shall be all sanctity and love,
How sweet- to turn from anguish, guilt and madness,
And, sheltered from the storm, the soul may rest
When, spleenful as the sensitive Mimosa,
We shrink from Winter's touch and Nature's gloom, There may we conjure up a Vallombrosa,
Where groves and bowers in Summer beauty bloom, And the heart dances in the sunny glade Fancy has made.
But, would we dedicate to nobler uses
While high and charitable thoughts, and prayer May teach us gratitude to God, combined
With love of kind.

LARGE MAP OF THE WORLD.
MOUNTED ON ROLLERS.
The Map of the World is 4 feet in length and 64 in width, comprising a surface of about 4000 square inches, and a geographical extent from east to west of 360 degrees of longitude, and from the 81st degree of latitude north, to the 70th degree south. The engraving is clear and distinct, and the printing, colouring, and mounting is done in the best manner.
This work exhibits doubtless the most correct and complete view of the earth in the map form hitherto published in this country; it embraces as far as the scale permits, the researches of the most distinguished modern explorers both by sea and land; also the sailing tracks of the principal navigators from the time of Columbus to that of the late American Exploring Expedition commanded by Commodore Wilkes; together with the overland routes of noted travellers from the days of Browne and Park in Africa, in the years 1793-95, to those of Frémont in California and Oregon in our own times
