"Jam-bo-Ree." BY JOHN HAPPY. Young Jam-bo-ree, a boy about thirteen yearold, son to the barkeeper of the Phreeanezie Saloon, remained at his post in the back room, in a single-handed game of Euchre, after the party had broken up in a general 'bust,' and every 'hand' had been abandoned except his own and that of one remaining adversary. The boy held on to the greasy 'deck,' Whence all but him had fled; The lamp threw its light on his last red check, And he hadn't another 'red.' Yet beautiful and bright he sat As born to win or lose, With an ace of trumps hid under his hat And a bower or two in his clothes. The game went on—he would not go, Without his father's word, That father drunk on the floor below, His voice no longer heard. He called aloud—"Say, daddy, say— Hadn 11 better 'go it alone' ?" He knew not that the chieftain lay Unconscious of his son. "Speak, father!" once again he cried, I'm playing my best for even— And—but the man on the other side Ordered him up on the seven. Hi...

[For the Spectator.] In reply to Thunder A. Shun. Thanks for the information sent, I' m sure it was no harm you meant, < And guilty woman takes the blow, And feels, forsooth, it must be so. For men are much too great and good, To catch them in a tattling mood ; And thus his neighbor to abuse, By telling all the paltry news. Yes, men are far too great, we know, To stoop to anything so low; And they have quite another way, To spend their time from day to day. Perchance some high and noble deed, To help a brother out of need, By flogging him with main and might, He thus preserves his honor bright. They've cards to play, and friends to cheat* Too many works to here repeat, Then silly women gossip 'round, The pretty deeds which men have done. Edkie. _,_ A Leap Year Lament. Bother !
