The golden days of Childhood ; a Ballad. The Words

and Melody by Mrs. C. B. WILSON.

Of this lady's first production we spoke in terms of sincere commenda- tion, and we shall now give her a piece of advice equally sincere. Let her not imagine, because she has produced a song of real excellence, that all the contents of her portfolio are fit for publication. She has some reputation now to lose, and whatever publishers may say to the contrary, she had better consign all those compositions which do not exceed the present in excellence, to the flames.
