A School Girl's Soliloquy. This going to school is a wretched bore, Over stupid lessons to puzzle and pore ; From nine in the morning till nearly four, 'Tis example, exercise, recitation, Till tired and cross—brain in a whirl— If our feelings to view we dare unfurl, 'Tis only hear, "Be patient, girl, Too must have an education." Here's mathematics, so dull and dry, Which we must master—l can't see why— Quite smother my patience, I won't deny, In weariness and vexation. A minus x, plus b and c, i A pre.ty story enough, maybe, But it- beauties are such as I can t see, Though a part of my education. Then optics, acoustics, galvanic trash, In the mind of a tyro, make such a hash, That one is tempted to say things rash, By a mental gravitation. If the natural sciences, one and all, Were at the top of the Chinese wall, I shouldn't worry lest they might fall Where I wouldn't have to swallow them all, As part of my education. Je ne sais pas what charm may be In the Frenchman's tongue. Ego a...

[For the Spectator.] Pr_it-eretical. Letter by letter the printer "set," Thinking sadly of the heavy debt The public owes, as day by day He toils with his type for printer's pay. Letter by letter the column grew, For hard he toiled, and nobly, too ; But when his work had gone from press The printer sank into forgetfulness. Dollar by dollar his money is spent For board, —I clothing, and bed-room rent, Until he is old, and wearied and worn, And the wo_ld has left him in misery alone ; Dollar by dollar his savings go, His friends desert him, and who can know The agony that fills the printer's breast As poor and lone he sinks to his rest ? Letter by letter the graver cut, Until a chiseled name stood out From the marble slab, in bold relief— A name that should move the heart to grief; Read that name ye heartless gay, Read and ponder from day to day— And ne'er forget that the printer's toil Brings joy and pleasure to great and small.

Suicidal Cat. BY JOHN QUILL. There was a man named Furguson, He lived on Mnrket street, He had a speckled Thomas cat, That couldn't well be beat; He'd catch more rats and mice and sich Than forty cats could eat. This cat would come into the room And climb upon a.cheer, And there he'd sit and lick hisself And purr so awful qu_er, That Furguson would yell at him ; But still he'd purr-severe. And then he'd climb the moonlit fence, And loaf arouud and yowl, And spit, and _law another cat Alongside of the jowl, And then tney both would shako their tails, And jump around and howl. Oh, this here cat of Furguson'« Was fearful then to see; He'd yell precisely like he was In awful agony; You'd think a firft-class stomach-ache Had struck some small baby. And all the mothers on the street, Waked by the horrid din, Would rise right up and search their babes, To find some worryip' pin ; And still this vigorous cat would keep A hollerin' like sin. And as for Mr. Furguson 'Twas more than he could b...

And some shall wake to glory, And some shall wake to weep. Ku-Klux. A river black is running To a blacker sea afar; And by its banks is waving A flag without a star; There move the ghostly columns Of the swift Brigade of Death, And every villian sleeping Is gasping now for breath.
