Placing a Daughter at School. BY MOTTE BALL. "I have brought my daughter to you to be taught everything." Dear madam I've called for the purpose Of placing my daughter at school; She's only thirteen, 1 assure you, • And remarkably easy to rule. I' d have her learn painting and music, Gymnastics and dancing, pray do, Philosophy, grammar and logic, You'll teach her to read, of course, too. I wish her to learn every study, Mathematics are down in my plan, But of figures she scarce has an inkling, Pray instruct her in those if you can. I'd have her taught Spanish and Latin, Including the language of France; Never mind her very bad English, Teach her tv at when you have a good chance. On the harp she must be a proficient, And play the guitar pretty soon, And sing the last opera music Even though she can't turn a right tune, You must see that her manners are finished, That she moves with a Hebe-like grace; For though she is lame and one-sided, That's nothing to do with the case. Now to yo...

The Censer-Bowl. Neither Charles Lamb's "Ode to Tobacco," nor Keats' "Lay to a Pipe," is more unique in its way than the following pleasant lines from the pen of General Buckner: Let others sip the flowing bowd, And try the sorrows of the soul With' bumpers to allay; Give me a solace more unique, Let me the Censer-howl but seek, And steep my sorrows in perique, And wniff my cares away. And as the circling clouds ascend, And rolling on, expand and blend, And mingle with the air, So every grief will fade away; And hope, as joyous, bright and gay As is the morning's early ray, Dispel all thoughts of care. And then what glories wait us, if We build with each succeeding whiff Some castles in the air, And with the magic censer raise, Amid the clouds a thousand Fays, Whose beaming smiles would fix the gaze Of every votary there. An idol, shrined within our hearts, 'Tis woman's sweet and witching arts That lift our thoughts on high ; And, as the fragrant clouds arise, We think that woman's ...
