On the glorious Revolution of Ireland. No hand of mine Mall e'er molelte

Or rob thee of thg doway neft.
WHILST serater bords describe fierce wars

No cal disturb thy snug retreat,
Their heroes plans and mighty deeds in arms ; No other goldfinch steal thy meat.
What potent nations they, for years, with stood, Every day upon my board,
What town: they sack*d, what countries dreochid Thou will find a scatter'd hoard.

Go got near the wicked man,
Be mine the talk to Gng Hibernia's fame, He will kill thee if he can.
Whole onlin'd sword has gaio'd a deathless Though his bags are stuff'd with wealth,

His aching body's void of health.
So long as freedom warm the human breast, Luxury consumes bis frame,
So long will Ireland's glory and confeíi'd; And riot dansps his vital dame.
While time Ma'llaft, each heart to virtue true, He, if on his foor you lit,
will hail, with joy, the glorious eighty two. Instant dooms you to the spit.
00 arcan! fi-ft of all the patriot train,

How it joys my gladden'd heart,
How shall I raise to thee the grateful ftraio ? In my ore to give thee part!
As Tally's'awful eloquence avd Rome, Every day rejoice my breast,
So thine lerne, from her flavish doom.

For a little leave thy nelt;
Nor cap my mple forget the name of Flood, Safe thou may't return again,
Who fpern'd at wealth, to work his country's Through the crevice in the pane.

A Receipt for an Afilme.
To Charlemont what mighty praise is due !
How great, how good, how resolute, how crue! LD friend, accept, at once, frem mo
Buç vain th' atteinpt to ling each glorious name, The following rules, without a fee.
Tha: nlands recorded on the list of fame; An athma is your case, I thiok:
The patriot fire, like quickest light'oing, ran, Take care then what yoù eat and driok;
And warm'd the heart of ev'ry Irishman

Tafte not of meat preserv'd in Salt,
Wheb freedom' banner was by virtue rais'd, Or any liquor made of mall;
The latent spark loon thro' the nation blaz'd. From season'd sauce avert your eyes,
As Cincinatns, on each dread alarm,

From ham. and longues, and pigeoo.pico.
Sahdo'd his foes, yet tilld his Sabine farm; If ven'lon pafties set before you,
So Ireland's fons made e'en Britannia bow, Each bit you ex-memento mori!
Yet pe'er forlook the shuttle or the plow. Por supper nothing, if you please,
No power on earth did hist'ry e'er record, Bus above all no coasted cheese :
That had loft freedom once again restor’d, Its likely now, you will observe,
Vollain'd with blood: Hibernia stande alone, What I prefcribc will make you farve.
A bright example dear fair virtue's throne. No; you may lwallow ava meal
Yet, whilst we log Hibernia's well-eara'd A neck, a loin, a leg of veal;

Youp, turkies I allow you four; Let England, too, our admiration raise:

Partridge and pullets half a score; What justice ask'd in firm, but loval straine,

Or houle-lamb boil'd eat quarters (wo,
Her candour gaves and clexos'd all former The devil's in'c if that won't do.

Now as ta liquor, why indeed,
'Twas then lerne's muchless worth appear'd, I both advise ; and send you meid;
Aod will, thro' ev'ry clime, be Atill rever'd : Gialles of wine extinguish drought,
Let us (her awful female cry'd) prepare,

Take three with water, three without :
A oum'rous hof to aid th' urequal war; Let constant exercise be try'd,
Shall Ireland's warlike fons ungrateful prove? And sometimes walk, and iometimes ride :
Forbid it honour, and forbid it love!

Healih oftener comes from Bi ckdowo bil, The boon that Britain has so kindly given, Than from th’apothecary's pill. Shall be repaid; aod aid her cause, high heav'a! Be not in halte, or thiok co do They Ipoke, and lo! a noble baod appeare,

Your bn hnets in a day or two: And joyful enter naval volunteers :

Some, if they are not well at once, No force in us'd, fo: force would here be vain, Proclaim the doctor for a donce; Tis freedom's cable that leads them to ibe Restle's from qua k to quack they range, main.

When 'tis themselves they ought to change: Sood mult their foes, tho'com'rous, yield she Nature haces violence and force, day,

By metbind led, and gentle course, To glorious Britain and Hibernia.

Rules and restraint iou must endure, Suill may the Gifter nations live in peace! What cornes by time, 'tis time inult cure, Seill may their love and harmony increase! The use of vegetables try, They then may lan at ail their foes alarms,

And prize Pomous in a pye; And bid defiance to the world in aring!

Whate'er you eat, put lumething grodin,
LEONARD WALKER. And worthip Ceres in a pudding.

For bieakfast ic je my advice,
Ode to a Gol'finch.

Bat gruel, lago, barley, rice ;
TOME, sweet bird, with wings of gold,

Take burilock root, and by my.troth
All thy yellow plumes unfull;

I'd ning le daisies in '

Thus you with ease may diaw your breath, Picking op thy lleader fare.
