The Dame, prolific in her wanton feats,' ?
The Lawyer, in the Monarch's throne, now seats.
But Majesty to revelry gives place ;
He sets example, and each pair embrace !
The clock strikes twelve, the King his throne descends,
The hour gives warning, and the feast now ends!
The merry Revellers, more festive grown,
A Regent seek to fill the empty throne !
His rights inquire, and by Majority
Depute to him-Supreme Authority i
He, conscious of their loyalty and loves,
An able and indulgent ruler proves ! !

From our young friends may we example take, , 1 I
From principle, not fear-a Regent make!
Like them invest him with dominion wide,
A potent ruler and a faithful guide.
May next Twelfth-Night no other fill the throne
Than that dear King, which in our hearts we own, is **
His Son a royal delegate, and we
A happy people, blest with liberty!
So shall the joys of this revolving night
To us give gladness, and to him--his right! 11. ? !!)

CONSULTATION EXTRAORDINARY." !! ***!

(Front the Morning Herald, Jan. 10.] IN N the course of the last three days certain Politico.

physico characters have been consulted apart; byr persons in the maintenance of high authority, on the necessity of some anodyne to be administered to John Bull, under the, alarming symptoms of his present disorder ! The senior recommended the trial of another sleeping dose, which generally abated his fever. The two nexi in ratik recommended simple emollients only, for an alterative, as a nausea had arisen on John's stomach, and his tongue exhibited rather a rough coat, from too long an adherence to the same diurnal doses. A

fourth, of bolder practice (the said compounds having lost their effect), would immediately prescribe arlumping bolus of Convalescence, which, if skilfully administered in John's usual broth, might operate as an astringent, and prove a salutary bracer to the Constitution! The fifth begged to defer his opinion, as in all complicated cases of a political tendency he never ventured to write until he had first consulted-his Wife. An open Consultation is expected this day, when John's case will be taken into their joint and most mature consideration; for, although iwo of the Physico-politico may not be able to attend personally they have promised in that case to send their Proxies, conformably to the rules of the Highest Practice!

FOUR-IN-HAND EDUCATION: A SONG.

To the popular Tune of "** Derry Down."

[From the Morning Chronicle, January 11.) OLD Squaretoes, my father, who deeply would think,

Dispatcb'd me to College, where I learn'd to drink; And as my degrees were from drinking to drenching, I soon gain'd preferment in wrangling and wenching.

Derry down. Thus prosper'd my learning, when honest old dad Thought fit to pop off, for the good of liis lad: With estates unmolested, and money in plenty, My race I commenc'd, when of age-wo-and-twenty.

Derry down. 'T is just four years since, in which space I bave shown How quickly the hoards of my sage dad have flown ;. Nay more, my outgoings receipts have confounded, And now for the ready last acre 's impounded.

Derry down. Well, what of all that? I've acquired high fame; I wench, drink, and drive, I can horse-race and game; With Richmau I spar ; a coalbeaver can drub, Sir; But, above all, I'm rank'd of the Four-in-Hand Club, Sir.

IMPROMPTU, ON OBSERVING ONE OF A CERTAIN PIOUS POLITICAL PARTY VERY BUSY, PROPOSING RESOLUTIONS AT THE OPERA COMMITTEE, ON A DAY WHEN THERE WAS A DEBATE IN THE HOUSE-INSCRIBED TO MR. BANKES.

[From the Morning Chronicle, Jan. 14.) OH, wondrous Taylor ! who, to serve the nation,

Hadst power to wean a Saint from legislation Let him, like David, “worship in the dance;"

He ne'er can laud his Maker by-finance! Saturday Morning

To please in sep'rate stations ;

To aid the dead and dying ;

THE AFFRONT.

[From the British Press, Jan. 14.]
LAST night my fair-one came in all her charms,

Her charms that ever thrill my soul with bliss ;
Eager I rush'd to clasp her in my arms,
And from her cheek rude snatch'd & burning kiss,

So

So coy, so modest was the maid I prizid,

Her rosy cheek became of lily hue ;
For this I lov'd her more, but felt surpris'd

When she in anger to her chamber flew,
I follow'd fast to soothe her virgin fears,

And ask forgiveness for the unmeant pain ; But she, infuriate, cried, dissolv'd in tears, “Get out, you fool, and let me rouge again !"...

EPIGRAM.
[From the Morning Chronicle, Jan. 17.)
OUR
UR good old King, alas! is yet too ill

The duties of his station to fulfil;
But lawyer Perceval's mirac'lous zeal
For Cæsar's presence substitutes a Seal..
Ye rigid Catholics! it thus appears,
Though your religious doctrines much he fears,
Applied to Politics, wben self's in view,
E'en transubstantiation's just and true.
