That drlppeth from the grap? thrown loose, Within the fun; Flocked from beneath the cliff Of suany-slde Teneriff*. And ripened 'neath the Mink Of India's sun ! Peat whiskey hot, ^pmj^T'd with well-boiled v|ater' Theso making the long nights shorter? Forgetting not Good stout old English porter! Old wood to burn ! Aye, bring the bill-side beech From where the owls meet and screech, And ravens croak; The rrackHng pine and cedar sweet; Brlag, too, a clump of fragrant peat, D<u{ 'n^ath the fern; A knotted o<k, A faggot, too, perhaps, Whose bright ftatre dawning, winking, Shall ii>;bt us at our drinking ! While the oozing san Phall make rweet music to our thinking' , Old books to read ' Ayr, br*ug those nodes of wit, The brazen clasp'd, the vellum writ, Time honored tones! The s r#fc my sire scanned before, The same my grandsire thumbed o'er, The same his sire from college bore. T Le well ? earned meed Of Oxford's domes; Old Honor blind, Old Horace, rak* Anaicreon, by Old Tuily, Plhntus, Terrence lie; Mort Aurihnr's old ministrelsie, ifcnalat Burton, quainter Spenser, ay, And Gervase Mark ham's venerie?

Him for my wine, him fo: my stud, Him for my easel, distitch, bud. In mountain walk ! Bring Walter good : With soulful Fred and learned Will, And then my aiter tgo, (dearer still For every mood) These add a coquet to my wine ? V These add a sparkle to my pine ! If th?se I time, Can books, or Are, or wine be good ' Kissing.?Kiting is a luxury which it is found nect saury sometimes to regulate by law, otherwise s?tne reckless ones would bo at it all the time. They put the law on a little too hard, howeror, in Connecticut, two centurion ago lu 1050, a trial took place in Conuecti cut, under tho section of the blue laws prohib iting kissing. The offenders were Sarah Tut tle aral Jacob Newliee. It appears that Sarah dropped b?*r gloves, and Jacob found theui. 'Yin n Sarah asked for them, Jacob demanded a kio? for his pay, and as the demand did n?>I seem to Sarah extravagant, she adjusted it forthwith. The fact) were clearly proved, and the parties were fined each twenty shillings That was certainly rather hard, but we daro "ay they found some way of getting thoir money's worth. A m.mater, who resided in Maine some ?tars sin.e. considered it wrong for a mother to kiss her little babe. He was the samo man who made his horse keep " fast days," and whipped his cat for catching mico on Sunday.- . He turnod a Somerset afterwards, as every maa who repudiates lawful kissing is likely to do. Tfccre may be holiness as well as sweetness in a kisa. Lavixg xot alwats Wasbixg ?Colonel Kemyssofthe fourth regiment, was remark able for the studied pomposity of his diction. Ono day, observing that a careless man in the rank ? had a peculiarly dirty face, which ap I tared not to hare been w ished for a twelve month, he was exoeedingly indignant at so gross a violation of military propriety. uTake said he to tho copjral, who was an Iri hra u>, ' take the man and lave him in the waters uf the linadiana.
