TIMELY WARNINGS AND WHOLESOME PRECEPTS,

THE

FOR

As Sol is Anima Mundi (the life of the world), and is reviving it at this, season from a state of torpor to vigour and beauty, astrologers erect the Rudir of the year for the moment of the Vernal Equinox. This will be on the 20th, at 19 minutes past 9 at

PUR

23R night, when 6 degrees of Scorpio are on the cusp

Tegelus of the ascendant, and 19 of Leo calumniate. The

Spica figure has many important features. Venus, in. her domal dignity, is besieged by the two male

Grand Radir Efics; Mars, the lord of the ascendant, is also in his

rends - day-house, and all the planets, save Geor. Sidus,

9150 and three asteroids, are in occidental houses. A

1825 trine of Jupiter and Mars, from Aries and Leo,

019 occurs on the 5th ; a quartile of Jupiter and I'Venus, from Leo and Taurus, on the 8th ; and 1024

313 on the 28th, a sextile of Jupiter and Saturn.

Bigots, to reuson having great aversions,

To prejudices stick like Medes and Persians. England likely to be busied in affairs which will be more particularized in

the sequel. Great changes in the Port Towns of Asia Minor. Something whicha must not be prematurely divulged occurs in Italy. Mars, too, dignified as he is in respect to mansion, and receiving from his exaltation the quartile of Georgium Sidus, works up strife in the North of Europe. The exit of two functionaries highly connected with the Universities may also be anticipated.

Poetical Vagary-continued.

That this is than those former ages wiser

In its devotions, there can be no doubt
Far more commodious for the idolizer

Who worships Mammon with a zeal devout-
Than 'twas for those who delv'd the marble quarry,

And carv'd their deities with so much care !
O yes—'tis much enlighten'd—by Old Harry-

Since artists used a matrix to prepare,
And cast 'em ere their faithful tribes could follow,
Either a Bacchus, Venus, or Apollo !

TIMELY WARNINGS AND WHOLESOME PRECEPTS. Besides the chain of Lunar Aspects, this Month affords conjunctions c Mars and Mercury in Aries, and of Saiurn and Venus in Geminima sextile of Jupiter and Venus from Leo and Cancer-quartiles of the Sun and Georgium Sidus from Aries and Capricorn; and of Jupiter and Mars, also, of the Sun and Jupiter, both from Leo and Taurus.

Beware of such as wheedle for election ;

W ho, when M. Ps., cut with you all connexion. Now the positions of the radix, and the aspects prevalent last month, strength. ened as they are by the mutual enmities of the present, render it ominously visible that our Indian settlements are inflamed by a spirit of insubordination not to be easily quenched; and those who have great colonial interests at stake will, to all appearance, be severe sufferers. The sextile of Jupiter and Venus intimates mediativu by neutral powers between Greece and her barbarian adversary. Ireland, through whose ascendant Mars and Mercury Ire now posting, seems as if resenting some new aggression. A marriage, ikely to supply the gossips with a rich fund of prattle, is prefigured : and an embassy of an important nature seems in preparation. A duel is portended, vbich, from the virulent nature of the signs, and the decided hostility vinced, may he looked forward to as fatal.

Poetical Vagary~-continued.
Then he for Mammon's boon whose heart hath been agog,

Down let him prostrate fall before his seat;
And pay his daily visit to his synagogue-

His gorgeous temple in Threadneedle-street !
There will he meet a pious congregation-

Most earnest and devout, indeed, are they !
And if not paying rich and pure oblation,

They oft renew their promises to pay.
Unto which worship, it may be asserted,
Most nations by this sainthood are converted.

TIVELY WARNINGS AND WHOLESOME PRECEPTS, AKThe Month of May is distinguished by four important planetary conjunoca tions, namely, one of Mars and Mercury-one of the Sun and Mercury-one 20 of Mars and Venus—and the other of the Sun and Venus; all wbich happen na under the sign Taurus. On the last day we also find the Moon, while applything to her ascending node, eclipsed in Sagittarius, and in opposition to the hek planet Saturn : with an unusual state of combustion in the firmament.

Choose not your delegates to merely sit for you,

BOLD STANDERS UP FOR RIGHTS alone are fit for you I' Russia and Sweden, or some other State in that quarter, show strife; and Poland, perhaps, is concerting leagues for throwing off the yoke of the despot. The north of England, and also Ireland, exhibit consternation, caused, as it seems, by popular ebullition; and it is to be feared that the military will be called to interfere. Loss of lives and property by fire, or some tremendous explosion, likely to be heard of about the end of this month. Some signs of a dark and dubious character, I take to relate to the e bringing to light deep schemes of defraud connected with some public agents

in a quarter to which it would be impolitic in me to allude thus prematurely: Be it what it may, a person of note in the political world is implicated. Bad news during this or the ensuing month reaches us from the Cape of Good Hope.

Poetical Vagary-continued.

This fashion brings it to my recollection,

That “ Druids borrow'd money in their day,
Which," says Patricius, “ at the resurrection,

They gave their solemn promises to pay !” *
Now whether they will really in futurity

Make good their pledges, hard it is to say;
And I am thinking government security

Is something like Druidic in its way!
What then ?-Though pay-day so far distant from us is,
The loans themselves were little else than promises.

Druide pecuniam mutuo accipiebant in posteriore reddituri
