My Husband uses Tobacco. He sits in his chair from morning till night, 'Tis smoke, chew, smoke; He rises at dawn his pipe to light. Goes puffing and chewing with all his might Till the hour of sleep. "Tis his delight To smoke, chew, smoke. The quid goes in when the pipe goes out, 'Tis chew, chew, chew. Now a cloud of smoke comes from his throat, Then his mouth sends a constant stream afloat, Sufficient to carry a mill or a boat, 'Tis chow, chew, chew. He sits all day in a smoke of fog, Tis puff, puff, puff. He growls at his wife, the cat and the dog, He covers with filth the carpet and rug, And his only answer when I give him a jog Is puff, puff, puff. The house all o'er from end to end, Is smoke, smoke, smoke; In whatever rooms my way I wend, If 1 take his old clothes to patch and mend, Ungrateful perfumes will ascend, Of smoke, smoke, smoke. At home or abroad, afar or near, 'Tis smoke, chow, smoke. His mouth is stuffed from ear to ear, Or puffing the stump of pipe so dear, And his...

The Peasant's Bride. I was a simple country girl That loved tho morning dearly ; My only wealth a precious pearl I found one morning early. I milked my mother's only cow, My kind poor lovin' Drimin ; I never envied then nor now The kine of richer women. The sun shone out in bonny June, And fragrant were the meadows ; A voice as sweet as an Irish tune (I know it was my Thady's,) Said, "Mary, dear, I fain would stay, But where's the use repining? I must away to save my hay, Now that the sun is shining." Now Thady was as stout a blade As ever stood in leather, With hook or scythe, with plough or spade, He'd beat ten men together; He's, just the man, thought I, for me, He is working late and early, He shall be mine if he is free, He takes my fancy fairly. I gave my hand though I was young, And heart, too, like a feather, Our marriage song by the lark was sung When we were wed together! And many a noble lord, I'm told, And many a noble lady, Would gladly give a crown of gold To be like m...

I'd be an Editor. A CAROOY —BY IIEROD OTtJ S KIB, ESQ. air— "Pd be a butterfly, born in a bowe /■," I'd be an editor, mured in a garret, Where cobwebs in dusty magnificence hang, With a steady arm chair, and no rivals to share it, And a hat full of politics, verses and slang. I'd never fret about talents and merit, I'd never cowskin, or challenge, or flout; I'd be an editor mured in a garret, Ready to wear my coat either side out. I'd be an editor —I'd be an editor, Luck to the coat, be it inside or but. O, I would pilfer the wit of my betters! Scissors should minister all to my need; Then 1 should like a rare man of letters, If duns did not warrant the title indeed, He who has wealth, must be watchful and wary, He who has office, look out for his nose. I'd be an editor: here high and airy, Rock'd on sublimity—when the wind blows. I'd be an editor—l'd "be an editor, Rock'd in my garret, and safe in my nose.

The Chess Board. My little love, do you remember, Ere we were grown so sadly wise, Those evenings in the bleak December, Curtained warm from the snowy weather, When you and I played chess together, Checkmated by each other's eyes. Ah ! still I see your soft white hand Hovering warm o'er queen and knight. Brave pawns in valiant battle stand, The double castles guard the wings, The bishop, bent on distant things, Moves sliding through the fight. Our fingers touch, our glances meet, And falter; falls your golden hair Against my cheek ; your bosom sweet Is heaving. Down the field your queen Rides slow, her soldiery between, And checks me unaware. Ah me ! the little battle's done ; Dispersed is all its chivalry. Full many a move, since then, have we, 'Mid life's perplexing checkers made, And many a game with Fortune played — What is it we have won? This, this at least —if this alone — That never, never, nevermore, As in those old still nights of yore, (Ere we were grown so sadly wise), C...
