A literary Curiosity. The "Curse of O'Kelly" is often alluded to; yet very many, we think, have not yet read it.— Carmac O'Kelly, the celebrated Irish harper, went to Doneraile, in the county of Cork, where his watch was pilfered from his fob. This so roused his ire that he celebrated the people in the following unexampled "string of curses :" Alas ! how dismal is my tale ! I lost my watch in Doneraile— My Dublin watch, my chain and seal, Pilfered at once in Doneraile. May fire and brimstone never fail To fall in showers on Doneraile; May all the leading fiends assail The thieving town of Doneraile: As lightnings flash across the vale, So down to hell with Doneraile; The fate of Pompey at Pharsale, Be that the curse of Doneraile; May beef or mutton, lamb or veal, Be never found in Doneraile; But garlic soup and scurvy kale Be still the food for Doneraile, And forward as the creeping snail Industry be at Doneraile. May heaven a chosen curse entail On ragged, rotten Doneraile; May sun...

It is so! You may smile, if you like, But it's so! I've known many a lass Who would thoughtlessly pass, Whole hours promenading the street, While her mother would scrub All the while at the tub, Never minding the cold or the heat. It is so ! It is so ! You may smile, if you like, But it's so! There is many a man Who will "dress" if he can, No matter how empty his purse, And his tailor may look, When he settles his book, But his patron has vanished or worse. It is so! It is so! You may smile, if you like, But it's so! I know people so nice, They will faint in a trice, If you mention hard labor to them, Yet their parents were poor - And were forced to endure Many hardships life's current to stem. It is so!

Janette's Hair. BT MILES O'KEILEY. 'Oh, loosen the snood that you wear, Janette, Let me tangle a hand in your hair, my pet—" For the world to me had'no daintier sight Than your brown hair veiling your shoulders white, As I tangled a hand in your hair, my pet. It was brown with a golden gloss, Janette, It was finer than silk of the floss, my pet; 'Twas a beautiful mist falling down to your wrist, Twas a thing to be braided, and jeweled, and kissed, 'Twas the lovliest hair in the world, my pet! My arm was the arm ofa clown, Janette, It was sinewy, bristled and brown, my pet, But warmly and softly it loved to caress, Your round white neck and your wealth of tress, Your beautiful plenty of hair, my pet. Your eyes had a swimming glory, Janette, Revealing the old dear story, my pet, They were grey, with that chastened tinge of the sky When the trout leaps quickest to snap the fly— And they matched with your golden hair, my pet. Your lips—but I have no words, Janette, They were fresh as th...

Young and Old.
