stehen und staunen und schlagen die Hände zusammen und rufen; Aber, wie hat ein so grosser Mann nicht wissen können!'

VORGEFÜHL.

(6) Mich selber oft im Geist hab' ich gesehn,
Erträumtem Glücke rastlos jagend nach:
Unstät und düster schweift' ich auf den Seen,-
Ich weiss es nicht, was mir begegnen mag!

Doch allemal, wenn träumend so zu schau'n
In künft'ge Zeiten ich mich unterfing,
Erfasste mich ein innerliches Grau'n,
Und meine Thränen flossen, wie ich ging.
Denn wo ich auch gelegt mein Fahrzeug an,

Wie rings ich auch, was Glück man nennt, geschaut:
Ich kam zurück, ein müder alter Mann,

Mein Bart verwildert, und mein Haar ergraut.

Wer grüsste mich? Wer nahm mir ab den Stab?
Weh, nicht mehr fand ich, die ich einst verliess!
Wo seid ihr? kommt! ich kehrte !-Gott, ihr Grab
War Alles, was ein neu Geschlecht mir wies!

FREILIGRATH.

Now commenced the brightest part of Argyle's career. His enterprise had hitherto brought on him nothing but reproach and derision. His great error was that he did not resolutely refuse to accept the name without the power of a general. Had he remained quietly at his retreat in Friesland, he would in a few years have been recalled with honour to his country, and would have been conspicuous among the ornaments and the props of constitutional monarchy. Had he conducted his expedition according to his own views, and carried with him no followers but such as were prepared implicitly to obey all his orders, he might possibly have effected something great.— MACAULAY.

2. If two triangles have two sides of the one equal to two sides of the other, each to each, but the angle contained by the two sides of one of them greater than the angle contained by the two sides equal to them of the other, the base of that which has the greater angle shall be greater than the base of the other triangle.
