PARODY,OF ‘‘OH! NO, \VE NEVER MENTION
raoR the r.nisni'HcH utebabv oazhte.
Oh 1 no, I never drink a drop ;
A bottle’s nevor seen;
My lips are now forbid lo toato
What all my joy ha* been.
They think tho gout tint harrows mo
lias banish’d my rccret:
And if I smile, they vainly think
That 1 rny grog forgut.
They hid me, in exchange for sror.
Seek charms in drinking ten ;
But all Ihe tea in Christendom
Would work no chunge on me.
Alas | I now behold no more
* The crony w hom I met;
1 visit not iho public liquso—
iv cun 1 forget 7
But how c
They tell inc he lives sober now,
Once runmiesl ofthe rum ;
They hint he’« to be married now—
I know it’s all a hum.
Liko mo he grumbler loud, that wo
£an’t meet us we have met;
And if he drunk a* I did drink,
IIu never cuii forget.
A9 the 8uaiu all his splendor was peeping
over tho eastern hills, a newly married matt
exclaimed, *• (be glory of the world is rising!”
His wife, who happened to be getting op at
that moment, taking the compliment to her*
self, simpered out, ** What would you say,
my dear, if I had my silk gown on ?”
There never was a wiser maxim than that
of Franklin. ** Nothing is cheap which we
do not want.” Yet how perfectly insane
many people are on the subject of buying
cheap things. “Do tell mo why you hnve
bought that cast of door plater” asked the
husband of one ofthose notable bargainers;
.‘‘Dear mo.” replied my wife, “you know it
is always my plan to lay up things against
time of need ;• who knows but you tnay die,
and I marry a man with the aarne name as
that ou iho door plate.”
An anecdote is related, which well illus
trates the eager haste with which the vota
ries of fashion follow those who are considered
as eulitlcd to take the lead. A few years
since, when queues were universally worn,
the present King, then Prince Regent, ap
peared one morning in 8t. James’s Pork,
with his queue turned up under his hat. He
was noticed by all the exquisites, who, sup
posing his queue was cut oif. immediately re
paired lo the barbers to follow his example,
and such a cropping of tails never before
took place in one day iu London. The next
morning, to their great mortification and
chagrin; the Prince appeared as usual, with
his queue at full length, laugbiog iu his sleeve,
no doubt, nt the number of tailless monkeys
which had been duped by aping him.
A bull lias been promulged at Rome
against Jews, heretics, pa^aus. sorcerers, .Vc-
At first, this was said to be a mere formality,
complied with on the accession of every uow
Pope, without any idea of carrying it into
execution. According to letters, however,
from Bologna, of 12th inst.. all Jews are (0
be expelled, in fact, from the Rmnau Slates,
by order uf Cardinal Albani, Secretary of
“Talking of storms,” said nn honest Irish
man, the other day to a friend of ours 5 “at
Wilmington,, last summer, we had the hen
viost I ever saw in my file, considering the
size oftho town.”
As a feat almost unprecedented, we may
mention that a youug man in respectable life,
on Monday last, swam from this port to the
haven of Barton. He started from the Pa
tent Slip Yard, near the West Pior,at 12 o’
clock at noon, aud arrived at Burton 4 min
utes before two. The distance is between
six and seven miles. A bout accompanied him
at &6hort distance, lo bo ready in the event
of accident, and he returned in the evening,
apparently little fatigued with this extraor-
diouty exertion.—Hull Advertiser.
Eloquence ok silence’—IIow eloquent
is silenco ! Acquiescence, contradiction, de
ference, disdain, embarrassment, and awe.
may nil be expressed by saying nothing. It
may be necessary to illustrate this apparent
paradox by a few examples. Do you seek
an assurance of jour mistress’ a (lection ?
Tho fair ouc, whose timidity shrinks from an
avowal of her tender sentiments, confirm’)
her lover’s fondest hopes by complnccut and
asseuting silent. Should you hear nn asser
tion, which you may deem false made by
some one, of whose veracity politeness may
Withhold you from openly declaring jour
doubt ? You denote & ditfi)rene& of opinion
by remaining silonce. Are you receiving a
reprimand from a superior ? You mark your
respect by anattcntivenndeubmissiveailenco.
A re you compelled to listen to the frivolous
conversation of a coccamb ? You signify
your despicablo opinion of him by treating
hia loquacity with contemptuous silence.-r
Aro you, in the course of any negotiation, n-
bountto enter on a discussion painful to
your own feelings, nnd to those who aro con*
cernced in it ? The subject is almost iuvar
i&bly prefaced by an awkward silence. Arc
you witnbss to some miraculous display of
supernatural power, the dread and astonish
ment with which you are impressed imposes
an Involuntary silence. Silence lias also its
utility and advantages. And, 1st, what an
incalculable portion of domestic etrifo and
diisention might bavo been prevontol ;
how ofieu might the quarrel, which, by mu
tual aggravation, has perhaps terminated in
bloodshed, have been ckcck^j in its com*
monoement by a woll timed end judicious si
lonce : those persons only who have experi
enced are aware of the benefioial effects of
that forbearanco which, to tho exasperating
throat,tho malicioussnuor,or the unjustly im
puted culpability, shall answer nevor a word.
Sdiy, There are not wanting instances where
the reputation, the fortune, (he happiness,nay
the life ofthe fellow crunluro, might be pre
served by a charitable silence, either by tbo
suppression of «omo condemning circumstan
ces, or by rofusing to unite iu the'defainalory
nirc^tiou. 3d!y, To aiif one .who iean.x*
jous to pass fur a person of deep refleuiion *
and superior understanding, I would recom
mend to say but little; silence being consid
ered bv many people as a certain indication.
of wisdom; nnd I must myself confess I should
prefer the man who thinks much without
speaking, to him who speaks much without
thinking. Not thut I would be supposed to
b« an advocate for habitual taciturnity. No
Jt.‘ can better appreciate the delight derived
"inn intcllentual intercourse.. Notwithstan
ding which, I see daily cause to ndmjre Iho
' ruth and justice of that apothegm which saya
—“Of much speaking cometh repentuuce,but
in silence is safety.”—Lond. Mag.
After a long silence, Lady Morgan has
once more come before the public, not as a
romancer or an historian,but,ns best became
"tie of tho fair sex, with The Book of the
Boudoir, a little work filled wjih the spirit,
and calculatedTor the meridian of that de
lightful ternplo of woman’s fascination and
unresisted supremacy. It is diecunive, like

se, sentiment, sallies of wit, thoughtfulness,
levity, gloom, joy—all topics, all countries,
and almost, all passions, are inndn to contri
bute a leaf,sometimes a flower,to the wreath
sho has wove. Among such a variety it is
difficult to make a choice, but we take tha
following anecdote, applying to a well known
Viiionary,for its characteristic singularity.—
“ One of the most benevolent, amiable,
and sanguine of all philanthropists called oo
ine, with a countenance full of some new
scheme of beneficence and utility. It was
Mr. Owen, of New LanaYk, whose visits are
always welcome in Kildare street, though so
‘ few and far between.’
“ As soon as we had sunk into our arm
chairs, and put our (cet on tho fender, and
before we hod got on the usual topics of par
allelograms and perfectibility, New Lanark
aud a new social system, he began,
“ ‘My dear Lady Morgan, you are to havs
a party to-night.*
“ * To be sure, my dear Mr. Ownn, and
one mado expressly for yourself. You are
my lion ; I hope you don’t mean to jilt me.*
** * By iio moans ; but I have brought you
better linn than 1 could prove. 1
“ ‘ I doubt that; hut who is he ? where
is he ?’
In my pocket.,
You dou’l say «o ; is it alive ? ’ •
II- ra it is,* said Mr. Owen, smiling ;
aud drawing forth u little parcel, he enfolded
nnd held up a canvass tunic, or chonnse,
trimmed with red tape.
“ * 1 want j’ou,’ ho added, * to assist me in
bringing into fashion this true costume of oq-
luro’s dictation, the only oue that uuq euouid
*• * But woman, my dear Mr. Owen ?*
•* 4 Or woman either iny dear Lady.*
“ * Consider Mr. Owen, the cliumte!*
•• • Your face clues not either from it.*
“ * But then again, the decencies ?’
“ 1 The decencies, as you call them, I.adjr
M , are conventional—iliev were thought
ot'some years ago, when yon were all dres
sed in the udhccive draperies of antiquity,
liku that beautiful group on jour chinmej-
pieco. You seo there the children of Niubo
who wore no more voluminous garments than
my tunic that lovely child, for instance,
which Niubo is endeavoring lo save from the
shafts of Apollo. And yet none of your fine
gentlemen and Indies uie schnoked by tho
definition of forms, which have ever been
tile inspiration of art. 1 assure you 1 havo
already got several ladies to try thu tuaic-
'Oh ! Mr. Owen ! ! !’
k On ilieir litllo boys. Lady Morgan ; and
if I could only induce you to try it.—’
“ ‘Me. my dear Mr. Owen ! You surley

all I beg for the present, is, that you will
give il n trial, by showing it off at your par
ly to night—recommend it, puff it off!’
“ Quillcpuur le peur, I promised to do 60,
to the utmost of my appraising abilities ; aod
so we suspended the litllo chemise from .the

turously at the little model dreea of future
perfectibility,‘thereit is worthily placed!
Such were the freo vestments, that, loaviog,
the limbs of tho Greek athlete unrestrained,
produced those noble forms, which supplied
models for the Apollo ofBelverdero.’
“ *It is certainly placed lo great advantage
Mr. Owen,’I replied with a sigh,‘but it gives
my pretty library very much the look of Rag-
fair, or a back parlor in Monmouth street.’
“ ‘My doar Madam,’ ho replied emphati

success, and nieriled the well known oulogL

Politeness.—Au officer in battle happening
to bow, a cannon ball passed%ver bis head,
nnd took off tho head of a soldier who stood
behind him; “you see («aid he) that a man
never loses by politoQoss.”
The Sailor at Auction—A Pad.—At an
ovoning sale, by auction, of books, a sailor,
half seai-over, was vociferous and trouble
some. The auctioneer, having io vain tried
to silence him, proceeded to turn him out.
