Messrs. Editors, I cannot imagine why any

you paid my communication last week. When
I looked over the Star the first thing- that met
my gaze was the puff which you gave my po-

to flattej me; but upon reflection I
came to the conclusion that yoti expressed the
thoughts arriving from your generous breast,

My chidhood's prayer !—oh ! not one flower
But 'minds me of its purity ;
The lowliest daisy in the bower ..
Brings back that gentle práy^feto me,
With all the joys of infancy.

A memory of joys that were,
All fleeting—but my childhood's prayer.
