THE DOMESTIC CONSTITUTION.

By thee
Founded in reason, loyal, just, and pure,
Relations dear, and all the charities
Of Father, Son, and Brother, first were known.
Far be it that I should write thee sin or blame,
Or think thee unbefitting holiest place,
Perpetual fountain of domestic sweets. ---Milton.

Forsaking thee! what shipwreck must ensue
Of honour, principle, and fair renown!

pice,-Aspice,-Prospice.
