Poetry.
Prologue to the Best Bidder. Written by Captain Sing rub a dub, dub a dub, whe, whe, whe,
Toplam. Spoken by Mr. Palmer,

Thunder and plunder ! a soldier, a soldier, 2
O E to the man, who, midst the forms soldier for me!

(wife!
Hath prov'd that worst of forms-a scolding Each morn when you see him upon the parade,
Woe to the mao, who, toiling for the state,

He cuts such a falb, Hath borne the buffet of each long debate !

With his gorget and lash; • The call to order, Sir, I rise to prove !'

And makes such ado, « I'm up-l'm down--I will I will not move!' With his gailers and queue, But worse than woe to him! who, baited here, Sleeping or waking, who need be afraid ? Fiode nought but carcal rounds'a (Tail his ear. Sing rub a dub, &c. &c. &c. • Of! off !-go on-encore !

Or else when he's mounted, ro trim, and so tald, night!

[him quite ! With broad sword in hand, • A pology? over with him!'--'is over with

The whole town to command; From all chele dire alarms that shock opr days,

Such capers, such praaces, None feels so sorely as pilz arlic Bayes.

Such og liog, such glances, The wedded wight, whose faithful confort's

Our hearts gallop off, and are left at Whitea clack Still braves his filence with renew'd attack,

Sing tara, tantara, tao, too, too, too, too, too, May, when the cumule of some moaths is o'er, Trumpet, and clump i-a soldier, a soldier, By one kind stroke of fate be dino'd no more.

But the poor cailiff bard, when hunted down A Description of Winter. By a Gentleman of

Cambridge.
By that quick.fcented pow'sfu!pack-the Town,
In vain to hide the wounds of sport may try, ROM mountains of eteraal snow,
His ears till v brate with the awful cry:

And Zembla's dreary plaios;
Or should he, barely 'scap'd with life, retire Where the bleak winds for ever blow,
To his lone garret, and his want of fire,

And frolt for ever reigos:
Th' approaching dawo, to chale his last night's Lo! Winter comes in fogs array'd,

Brings friendly counsel in the morning papers :

With ice, and spangled dews; Forc'd puns ! --vile plot !-10 wit! -lcenes To dews, and fogs, and starins be paid seen before !

The tribute of the mule. "We advise the Gentleman to write no more.' Each flow'ry carpet nature spread,

Our bard to night, altho' not quite so poor, Is vanilh'd from the eye; Still wants the art to make his labour sure ;

Where'er unhappy lovers tread, Tho' on these boards he trove with favor'd

No Philomel is nighi. toil To dilipate your cares, and wake your smile,

No blushing rose unfolds its bloom, Here, tho' his works stood tolerably well,

No tender lilies blow, He built on other ground, and there he fell.

To Iceat the air with rich perfume, Myself-adumal witness, can relate

Or grace my charmer's brow.
The dire disasters of his doleful fate.

Hail! ev'ry pair whom love voices
Brisk beaux I saw with critic belles engage, In Hymen's pleasing iics;
An active audience, and a paflive stage; That endless source of pure delights,
A pples and oranges were all we bad

Thac blefling of the wise !
Sad fruits of writing-whea the writing's sad!
But if again the culprit you receive,

Tho'yoo pale orb no warmth bestows,

And torms united meet,
And bid our prodigal return and live,
For foreiga follies he no more will ruam,

The Name of love, and friend hip glows
Some follies furely may be found at home.

With unextioguish'd heat!
