Parody No. 4. To Mankind generally, and Thunder A, Shunn particularly. BY MOLLIE BLT. Tell me ye winged winds, That round my pathway roar, Do ye not know some spot Where bachelors come no more ? Some lone and pleasant dell Where no moustache is seen! Where long-eared dandies never come Ourselves and fun between ? Tnere came a murmur from the distant lea, Alow, sad tone, which whispered: "No, sir-ee." Tell me, thou misty deep, Whose billows 'round me play, Know'st thon some favored spot, Some island far away, Where merry girls may find A rest from soft dough faces, And hear themselves called women, Nor likened to the graces? Soon did the misty deep its answer give, By murmuring, 'Not while sherry-cobblers live.' And thou, sererest moon, What language dost thou utter, While gazing on the gentleman Whose head is in tho gutter? Say, hast thou in thy round Gazed on some favored spot, Where hats know not the weight of brix And where cigars are not? Behind a cloud the wind withdrew in woe,...

NOT IN. She waited in the drawing-room, Good Mrs. Mabel Moore; Six flounces of a pretty lace Were on the dress she wore. Upon the bosom a French rose And on her cap some satin bows. One little foot just peeped without Her petticoat so white; Her hair, a little gray 'tis true, Was put in curl and bright; And sweet her glances shone around, As if some good thing she had found. The clock was on the stroke ot eight, And still she sat apart, Now listening close, and laying now One hand uaon her heart; And toying with her curls and rings And doing other girlish things. At length a step was heard, and then A ringing at the door: "Five minutes and a half too soon," Said Mrs. Mabel Moore. Then to her maid—"it is no sin, Go quick and say I am not in." "For if he loves me as he says, He can afford to wait And come again precisely at Five minutes after eight; My nerves are nearly quite unstrung, So very earnestly he rung."

Misses. Unlucky Vulcan! Venus tricked him ; A fashion with the ladies this is. I'm not amiss; but I'm a victim To a whole host of wicked misses.

Miss Take has played me many a trick, Miss Spell will always write my letters ; Miss Trust declines to give me tick ; Miss Manage lets off all my debtors. Miss Print is wont to spoil my rhyme— A very wicked habit._ hers ; And if they quote me any time. Miss Quotes's the girl to use the scissors.

Can't do Without a Paper. What, do without a paper ? No, I've tried it to my sorrow, So, to subscribe for one I'll go, Nor wait until to-morrow, Should lovers hang or drown themselves, Or other foolish caper, I never get to hear of it— I do not take the paper. Why there's my neighbor, Toby Stout, He always reads the news, And having it to talk about, He never gets the "blues;" While others yawn in ennui, His mind is light as vapor; The cause is plain to half an eye — Ho always takes the paper. While neighbor Stout hears all the news, And knows each current price. And always minds the p's and q's, By taking good advice, 1 cannot tell tho price of grain, Of poultry, coffee, taper, Or any kind of merchandise — Because I take no paper. Though I have studies which require Much time and mental labor, Yet I can spare a little time. As well as Stout, my neighbor; Though time be precious, I can muse And sit up somewhat later, And thus find time to read the new 9 In the Staunton Spectator. •-...
