And who was be that would reveal,
An heir to penury and scorn,

The follies of the social meal,
Whose infant frame rags did adorn? And each guest s fault exact detail ?
The Doctor.

And who was he that peopie found,
His brazen front would of't introde, Made ev'ry spot unhallow'd ground,
Where scholars met, and them delude? Which his brute foot steps chanc'd to

• The Doctor

The Doctor,
Into some arch or wanton freak,
Of which he might sure profit inake,

Who is he that, shut out by all,
And then who us'd their hush bribe take?

That honour prize-or fear to fall,
The Doctor. Into the fangs of this Jackail?

· The Doctor. Who was he that when school days o'er, Return'd unto his native shore,

Thro: Dublin streets now stalks a mark, Bearing of pois'nous pill a store?

At whom boys 'hoot and cur dogs bark,

The Doctor. As if he were from hell a shark? And who then with unblushing face,

The Doctor, Explor'd each hospitable place,

Who is he that to madness stung, Did from each skulker win the race? Whose well eàrn'd infamy we've sung, ** The Doctor. Now ofieni wishes he were strung?

The Doctor,



O Proor not a horse nor nag,
of which my stable loud may brag,

Can boast a head like thine;
Nor has a saddle got a skin,
So sleek as thy sweet cheek and chin,

Or doth so nobly shine.

Queen of the dripping-pan, O say!
How can st thou hear thy Jemmy bray !

Nor one kind answer utter!
How can'st thou hear thy stable- squire,
Roast at thine eyes like beef at fire,
Nor melt away like butter?

But thou hast grown so proud of late,
Tou cutt'st upon me like a plate,

As short as any crust;
And then with such a scornful eye,
Thy shoulders rais d by pride so high,

All like a turkey truss'd.

Well Peggy, I cannot bear it long,
Love sticks into me like a prong,

And sets my sides a bleeding!
I tell thee Peggy, without fibs,
Thou hast so curry-comb'd my ribs

That I'm quite off my feeding,

Peg, drive the driving dog away,
Give my stai ved love a lock of hay,

For I m in woful danger;
But if thou wilt not with me dwell,
Horses and saddles all farewell!

Your giving place to the following epigranimatic effusion, will oblige

A CONSTANT READER. It may be necessary for the better understanding of it, to give an account of the circumstances which gave rise to it, it is thus.-- In the Parish of Drumcliffe, in the County of Sligo, near the town of Sligo--there is a very ancient burying place, on the walls of which, and in different places adjacent, were large stone Crussesma part of which have been destroyed by time and accident, others by religious scal--and one of which lies now prostrate, directly opposite a very fine steeple, the then Rector Mr. Wynne was erecting contrary to the wishes of the major part of the Parishioners, as a sery heavy cess was laid on them, to defray the erpences of it--while the cross lies ates glected, covered with dirt and rubbish. .

Who builds a church to God and not to fame,
Will never mark the marble with his name:


Before the recreant Rector's eyes,
The cross neglected-prostrate lies ;
Yet 'gainst the wishes of the people,
He builds aloft a tow'ring steeple:

'Tis wise no doubt to build to fame,
Neglect his creed-and get a name,
And thus his Maker', inandate flee,
« Take up thy cross and follow me.

• A great Mack in this town, son to an ostier.
