EVEN PROSAIC VIEW OF POETRY. How very absurd la half stuff Called " poetry" now a days . The ??tanza-? and "epics' arc enough To put every lover of rhyme In a huff. And disgust the o!d hens with their " lays. There's one insists upon being a 4 4 bird," To4, fly to his lady love's bower;" But he knows that the "lady" to whom he re ferred Don't own ??k h * thing ; for (upon my word) In a "valler" house up In story the third, She Is living at this very hour. n?e ssks hat44 a cav* In some foreign dell, Away from the cold wo-ld's strife;" Wow the woods in line wea'her are verv well, But give him a si* weeks 44 rainy spell" And he'll soon " rave In" in his forest dell, And be sick enough of the life. A nother wants his 41 love to go And roam o'er the dark bin? sea Ferhaps he don't think, If there 4'cornea on a olow," That they d both be sea sick down below, And a w, etched pair th^yd be. Another young man would like to die 41 When the ro>es blcona In spring i" Just let him b? slrk, and he'll change his cry;" His ?' pas?isg away" Is 44 alt In my eye Of 44 dreamless sleeps" hs gets quite shy? It l?n't exactly the thin?. Another wo lid '?die and be laid In a deli, Beneath some murmuring rill;" Now In poetrr's jingle It's nice to tell, But It's a nasty wet p'?.ce?so why not a* well Have a nice dry grave on the hill' One loves?how he love* '?"the glittering foam And th- mad wave's angry strife " Just tike th*; young genius who wrote that 44 pome," 44 Where the billows dash and the sei-birds roam," And he'd give all he had to be safely at home; He'd stay theft the rest of his 11 e. Another young 44 heart broken" calis on his ?' own," To cheer him with " sweet smile ." Then be follows it up In a love-sick tone, With his 14 bosom's pangs;" if the truth were known It Isn't the 41 love" that causes hi* mean. But a superabundance of bAt. Esy?Wo should hardly think any one would be puzzled to aceount for this emble matic combination of lettors at the end of a man's name; it is still mora singular that any sensible man should be alarm* I at having it ntu-k on his own nirae. Yet a c^temporary evidently thick? that mischief lurks within this alphabetic trio, and gives vent to his ex cited feelings in the following m inner : What is the meaning, in this country, of Etquire, or E q? We wish suuebody would inform us. Wo are not in po<?9?sion of Noah Webster's Dictionary, and our devil declares it be*t3 bis sagacity all to pieces. We find it appliei to al! ??rts of persons The lawyer is called E*i-, th-i justice of the peace is denom inated /:?'/ . the postmaster is yclaped Ks<j , the militia captain isdubbel t*?/ , the mer chant. is in A"*-/,, the innkeeper is an Kiy . the matter printer is aa /?*?/ . the journeyman printer is an . and. hh*ra not dowvur cTea the editor is occasionally complimented with the appendage of /?,'?#/.

At any r ite wi w >uld give all the honor wj have ever derived, or ever shall de rive from the word, to know its meaning. ARRIVALS ATTHE PRINCIPAL HOTELS Willard*' llaiel?J. c A n. a. willard.

There has long existed a public demand for an effective Purgative Pill which could be relied on as sure and perfectly safe In its operation. This has been prepared to meet that demand, and an extensive trial of Its virtues has conclusively shown with what success It accom plishes thp'purpose designed It Is easy to make a physical Pill, but not so easy to make the best or all Pilh?one which sboula have none of the objections, but all the advantages of every other. Tills has been attempted here, and with wLat suc cess we would respectfully submit to the public decision It has been unfortunate for the ratlent hitherto that ;tlmost every purgative medicine Is acrimonious and IrMtatlng to the bowels. This lsnot Many of them produce so much griping pnln and revulsion in the system as to more than counterbalance the good to r>e derived froa: them. These Pills produce no irritation or pain, unless It arises from a previously existing obstruction or derangement In the bowels Being purely vege table, no harm can arise from their use In any quantity; but It is better than any medicine should be take.i judiciously. Minute directions for their nselntfce several disease* to wLich they are ap plicable htc given on the box. Amongthecom plaints which h ive been speedily cured by them we may mention Liver Complaint, In Its various forms of Jaundice, Indigestion. Languor and Loss of Appetite, Llstlessness. Irritability, B lions Headache, [>lllous Fever, Fever and Ague, Pain In the Side and Loins, for in truth, all these are but the consequence of diseased action of the liver.
