ciate Peter Prune, as much as to say “I would not be a good offer in her way.") She hoped the company had been feasted to their satisfaction (applause) : she left the management of the wine to Mr. Blueball, but in justice to herself, she must say she bought the almonds and raisins from Groom's opposite, and blanched the former with her own hands. (Great and continued applause.) 7 P. M.
Sad symptoms of music. Heard Bob Blueball squeaking a preparatory tenor, and Mr. Peter Prune, who piques himself upon his base, grumbling in his gizzard. Anticipated with horror the accustomed routine, viz. “ Hark the lark," the “ Loadstars," " When shall we three meet again,” and “Drink to me only,” for the ninetyninth time. Entertained an apprehension that the parties might even be "Deserted by the waning moon," when providentially a cry of “ Fire!" saluted our ears from the street. Ran to the window, threw back the curtain, and found it to proceed from two butcher's boys, who with pop-guns were playing at duels. Said nothing, but walked back with a grave face. Wife in hysterics already. Beheld the Albion engines pumping in at the parlour-window. Insisted, if I loved her, that I should call a hackney-coach, greeting me with accustomed rondeau, “ Do make haste, do.” Threw up the sash and shouted “ Coach," in a voice that might have drawn one from the Pavement in Moorfields. Wife darted into vehicle in an access of terror, quite forgetting the shawl which she had given shopman for safe custody. Hasty adieus, and tea and toast in Bush-lane.
If nobody marries till Simon Swandown again attends the ceremony, Malthus will have no reason to grumble at excess of population.
Oh how hard it is to find
The one just suited to our mind;
And if that one should be
False, unkind, or found too late,
What can we do but sigh at fate,
And sing Woe's me-Woe's me!
Love's a boundless burning waste,
Where Bliss's stream we seldom taste,
And still more seldom flee
Suspense's thorns, Suspicion's stings;
Yet somehow Love a something brings
That's sweet-ev'n when we sigh Woe's me!'
call my religion unlawful and light?
No, believe me, the creed that I cherish,
Is that souls, which are sparks from the fountain of light,
With their perishing dust shall not perish.
For I cannot imagine my love quench'd in death,
Though the dross of our being should sever,
And the thought of thee rivets a chain on my faith,
That there is an hereafter for ever.
