Young Courtlj' takes me for a dunce,
For all night long I spoke not once:
On better grounds I think him such;
He spoke but once, yet once too much.
The Mistake.
A cannon-ball, one bloody day,
Took a poor sailor's leg away:
And, as on his comrade's hack he made off,
A second fairly took his head off.
The fellow, on this odd emergence,
Carries him pick-back to the surgeons.
Zounds! cries the doctor, are you drunk
To bring me here a headless trunk?
A lying dog! cries Jack — he said
His leg was oflF, and not his head.
0 woman! through each change of life —
Mother or daughter — lov'd or wife —
Thine is the influence, thine the power
To guard man's gentlest, sternest hour!
Through life's long toil to smooth the road,
Add to each joy, lighten each load!
To hold Religion's torch on high.
And lead to realms beyond the sky!
We can all assist each oilier.
, forget not ev'ry mortal can If ample wealth thy means extend,
ixert the noblest right of man! 'T is thine to be the sufferer's friend,
1 That power, the lowest may possess. Bid the rich stream of bounty flow
His fellow man to aid and bless! To mitigate each form of woe!
