Fiends, that grin with a demon joy. Delight with humans to tamper and toy ; Every clamp on the molten bed, Is a dream, a hope, or a promise dead— A chill to pulse forever! The days, and months, and years, go by, Till the prophet angel leaves the sky, For the murky room with the rattling wheel, Its click and clog, and touch of steel, Its band and seam and lever! And side by side in the rolling press, To curse, to cheer, to crush, to bless, The angel and demon ever wait, Seeking the very doors of state, And thrilling through the nation ! Hark, how the monster throbs and groans, Creaking his iron ...

Ye Lovyers. BY A. TENDERSON. They were sitting side by side. And she sighed, and then he sighed ! Said he: "My darling idol," And he idled and then she idled; "You are creation's belle." And she bellowed, and then he bellowed; "On my soul there's such a weight," And he waited, and then she waited; "Your hand I ask, so bold I've grown," And she groaned, and then he groaned; "You shall nave a private gig," And she giggled, and then he giggled ; Said she : "My dearest Luke" And ho looked, and then she looked; "Shan't we," and they shantied ; "I'll have thee if thou wilt," And he wilted, and then she wilted. ■«. Marriage of Sir John Moore. Not a sigh was heard, not a funeral note, As the man to his bridal was hurried; Not a woman discharged her farewell groan, On the spot where fate fellow was married.

Raising the Statue of Chief Justice Marshall. We ar_ glad to see you, John Marshall, my boy, So fresh from the chisel of Rogers! Go take your stand on the Monument there, Along with the other old codgers : With Washington, Jefferson, Henry and such, Who sinned with a great transgression, In their old fashioned notions of Freedom and Right, And their hatred of wrong and oppression! You come rather late to your pedestal, John, For sooner you should have been here, For the volume you hold isnolongertho law, And this is no longer Virginia. The old Marshall-law you expounded of yore Is now not at all to tho purpose ; And tho martial-law ofthe now Brigadier Is stronger than habeas corpus. So keep you the volume shut with care, For the days of the law are over; And it needs all your brass to be holding it there With "Justice" inscribed on the cover. Could life awaken tho limb of bronze And blaze on the burnished eye, What would ye do with your moment of life, Ye men ofthe daj's gone by? Wo...

A Clever Parody. Oft in the stilly night, Ere slumber's chain hath bound me, I pull the blankets tight, And tuck them close around me, Yet often still Feel dreadful chill, , Without of warmth a token, From bitter winds, Through tattered blinds And window shutters broken ! So in the chilly night, Ere slumbers chain hath bound me, I pull the blankets tight, And tuck them close around me. "When I remember all The times in wintry weather That sheets and blankets fall From off my couch together, I really dread To go to bed, Lest after some hours' dozin', Without a quilt, I'd waken '"kilt," And find myself half frozen. So. in the chilly night, Ere slumber's chain hath bound me, I pull the blankets tight, And tuck them close around me. . . *. , . The Vowels. BY DEAN SWIFT.

POP. And there they sat a-popping corn, John Stiles and Susan Cutter; John Stiles as fat as any ox, And Susan fat as butter. And there they sat and shelied the corn, And raked and stirred the fire, And talked of different kinds of cars, And hitched their chairs the nigher. Then Susan, she the popper shook, Then John, he shook the popper, Till both their faces looked as red As saucepans made of copper. And so they shelled, and popped, and ate — All kinds of fun a-poking, While he haw-haw'd at her remarks, And she laughed at his joking. And still they popped, and still they ate — John's mouth was like a hopper— And stirred the fire and sprinkled salt, And shook and shook the popper. The clock struck nine, the clock struck ten, And still the corn kept popping— It struck eleven, and then struck twelve, And still no sign of stopping! And John, he ate, and Sue, she thought— The corn did pop and patter, Till he cried out, "the corn's a-fire ! Why, Susan what's the matter?" Says she, "John ...
