The Bachelor's Burial. Two old maids at shut of d_y, A bachelor's carcass bore away, With wrinkled brow and matted hair, And heart that never loved the fair. Bring briars, they groaned, bring weeds un blown, Bring rankest weeds of name unknown. Bring withered boughs from dreary wild, To strew the bier of error's child. And make his grave where the lizards hide, Where nightshade strews the swamp creek side, Far out of sight—where genial Spring Shall send no gentle birds to sing. His old jack-knife lay with him low, To cut the strings of Cupid's bow ; The sad house-cat shall whine around His lonely grave in grief profound. Here lay him who was often "high," Here, where shall fall no pitying eye For him —for him no loving heart Shall ache, for him no tear shall start. His bloodless lips shall fall to dust; His old jack-knife shall waste with rust; He whom we hide from light of men Shall never fright the babes again. For we have laid him from the light. Beneath the ground and out of sig...

'Tis by the type, tho screws, the springs, Belonging to tho printer.

For the Spectator. Advantages of a Batchelor's Life. TO A BACHELOR FRIEND. • Happy is he who has no cares at all, No wife to scold—no babies to bawl, His liquor he takes with an easy air, And floats indifferently "from fair to fair." He mingles in the 'halls of mirth' Where the gayest meet of earth. He bows to all with a careless grace Finding friends in every place, If friends they only prove in name It matters but little—life will soon wane, He does not take such things for trouble, Nor bow to the world with a kind o'half double; An oath may escape, but a sigh he represses As he d —as the villiany this oib possesses. And when wearied with ball and dance He betakes himself to his bachelor ranche, There to refresh himself at his ease To quote his words to "do as I please." (His mansion furnished always with the best Affords a place of Elysian rest) He orders a stoop to be immediately brought And having therefrom a copious draught, He throws Yiimself into an easy chair, And thanks Ba...

Hoggish. Oh ! how it makes a fellow feel To hear a hog in winter squeal; What splendid visions rise Of smoking stews and back-bone pies. When o'er the heart this music steals It every heartache quickly heals, And fancy claps her joyous wings And sweetly sings of "chitterlings." Or if she wish a softer lay, She hovers in the sausage tray, And poureth forth a wondrous song Of "linked up sweetness" soft and long. Or wearied with the sw.te.al tone She lights upon a spinal bone, And soothes the empty spirit's pains With soft and sweet 'backbiting' strains. Where'er she wings Her rapid flight, What glowing pleasures of delight! And oh, how bright the future shines When fancy warbles "tender lines." Let others praise when heard afar The dulcet flute—tho soft guitar; But give to me in woe or weal, The dying hog's poetic squal. They tell me I am handsome yet, And all the ladies say 'Do look at him ! the dear old man Grows younger every day.' And when each friend asks, 'At your age How came y...

We publish in this issue the memorial of the Conservative "Committee of Nine" to the Judiciary Committee ol the Senate, which will enable our readers to see what the "Committee of Nine" have done, and the character of the amendments they propose to the Underwood Constitution. The next, and more important thing, is to know what Congress will do in ref erence thereto. As yet, it is impossible to pre dict with any degree of certainty what action Congress will take. If we knew what the opinions of the majority of the Congressmen were in reference to the effect the adoption or rejection of these amendments would have upon the Radical party, we could, with confidence, predict what course they would adopt.
