A Song of the Tilt. | "The tilt, the tilt, the tilt's the thing." I The costume of Greece and the Toga of Rome Are outdone in toto by fair ones at home, For married men shiver, and single men "wilt," When damsels pass by with a swing ofthe tilt. I've stood on Mont Blanc and been lost in amaze, Ab nature her icy-bound grandeur displays; And have felt my soul thrill on a bright summer day, As I languidly floated down Naples' fair bay. But to see Nature perfect in every degree, From the size ofa calf to the turn of a knee, And observe in detail how the body is built, Let a damsel pass by with a swing ofthe tilt. These tilt-away hoops are so large and so light, Reveal such queer dry goods, once hid from the sight, You can read tho initials mark'd on them quite plain, Prom which men (if they're mortal) will scarcely refrain. It makes no gre._ difference, 'bout culture of mind, While a crowd of young fellows are always behind ; Perhaps she's a flirt, or p .reliance she's a jilt, She sets ...

Going up and Coming Down. There is a simple song, 'tis true. And songs like these are never nice, And yet we'll try and scatter through A pinch or two of good advice. Then listen, pompous friend, and learn Never to boast of much renown, For fortune's wheel is on the turn, And some go up and some come down. We know a vast amount of stocks A vast amount of pride insures; But fate has picked so many locks. We wouldn't like to warrant yours. Remember, then, and never spurn The one whose hand is hard and brown ; For he is likely to go up, And you are likely to come down. Another thing you will agree, (The truth may be as well confessed.) The "Codfish Aristocracy" Is but a scaly thing at best. And though the fishes large and strong, May seek the little ones to drown, Yet fishes all, both great and small, Are going up and coming down. Our lives are full of chance and change, And chance you know is never sure; And 'twere a doctrine new and strange That places high are most secure. As though...

A Man's A Man for a' that A SEW VERSION. By Chits. Machey, in Blackwood'B Magazine. "A man's a man," says Robert Burns, "For a ; that, and a' "that;" But though the song be clear and strong, It lacks a note for a' that, The lout who'd shirk his daily work, claim his- wage and a' that, Or beg when he might earn his bread, Is not a' man for a' that. If all who dine on homely fare Were true and brave, and a' that, And none whose garb is "hodden grey" \\ as fool or knave, and a' that, The voice and crime that 6hame our time Would fade and fall and a' that, And ploughmen be as good as kings, And churls as earls, for a' that. You see yon brawny, blustering tot, VY lm swaggers, swears, and a' that, And thinks because his strong right arm Might fell an ox, and a' that, That he's a noble, man for man, As duke or lord, and a' that; He's but a brute, beyond dispute, And not a man for a r that.
