POETICAL SELECTIONS. NUTTING. A much admired song, as sung by Mrs. Moun tain, at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden. AUTUMN shews the careful swain ’Tis time unto the golden grain, The sickle to be putting; And gaily in the hazel shades, See all the village men and ma ; ds, Each ev'ning a Nutting. A Nutting, GT c. " Dear, dear!” cries aged Tabatha, “ Where can the girls be gone to-day ? “ 1 cannot keep my slut in ; 11 Let me say whatsoe’er I will, •• Behold the spinning-wheel stands still, •* ’Tis all the plaguy Nutting?” This Nutting, ifc. “ Zounds !” quoth the farmer, " where is Dick “ The night is coming on us quick, “ ’Tis time the Sheep were shut in; “ But I must fold ’em I suppose, ‘‘ While this young idle rascal goes With Margery a Nutting.” A Nutting, Lc. “ But Polly’s pocke f full betrays, “ And what is that” her mother says “ On either side so jutting? “ ’Tis no use hussy to deny— “ Or tiil in vain a wicked lie, “ You know you’ve been a Nutting.” A Nutting, (Jfc, In winter, round the cheering fire, At eve the villagers retire, Content some humble hut in ; And crack their Nuts and reckon o’er, How many months will be before, Again the time of Nutting. Os Nutting, Ufc. Singular Military Hpftcarance ! At Portland, in the district of Maine, lieutenant Ingraham was lately tried by a Court-Martial for punishing one Noah Harding, a private in his com pany, !:y taking his arms and accou trements from him, putting him under guard, marching him thro’ the town, and placing him in public view on a Wooden Horse erected for the Pur pose, See....ln the lieutenant’s defence before the Court, aft r detailing a num ber of provocations given by the said Noah Harding, he thus describes Har ding's ludicrous appearance in the ranks 'on the parade :.... “ It is fully proved by the testimony that in pursuance of previous threats made as public as possible, Noah Har ding, the complainant, did appear on parade, on the said muster day, in a dress that could not fail to excite pub lic ridicule and derision, and which was intended and stupidly belirred by him to throw odium and contempt upon the company to which he belongs, and on his proper officers. It is fully proved by the same witnesses, that he appear ed wearing a pair of spectacles of an unusual size and appearance, fastened round his head with black ribbon or some!liing resembling it, and it fully appears that spectacles of any kind are not usually worn by him, neither were they such as could assist or relieve the sight of any person to whom specta cles might be necessary....and it is ve ry apparent that those were not intend ed for any such purpose, but were pro cured not to relieve the sight, and could be only fit to decorate the forehead of Noah Harding; that he wore a straw hat with a yellow band procured for the occasion....that over a white neck hand kerchief of the usual kind, he wore a bandanna handkerchief, so called, twist ed up to the resemblance of a cord that he wore three waistcoats of unu sual and unequal lengths, all of different colors, in such a manner as to expose them to view as much as possible; and to render his appearance still more ri diculous and contemptible each waist coat was confined with only one or two buttons at the breast, so that they might be easily blown about by the wind that having either very long suspenders or none at all, his pantaloons filled up his boots so as to make his appearance awkward beyond description....and had it not been for !he length of his waist coats he must have exhibited at his waistband an appearance exceedingly indecent it not obscene. His canteen was very awkwardly hung upon him with a profusion of what is called qual ity binding, which further decorated his dress with long strings or bows.... His b"ots had been kept for a number of Weeks in his cellar, in order to contract a mould which might render them a suitable addition tb the other parts of his dress....he carried what he called a knapsack, but which was rather a bag, or pack of unusual size whimsically painted and marked No. which was a very large salt fish selected on account of its size from a pile of ten quintals, so large that the tail of the fish appeared above his shoulders out of the mouth of the bag,” Sec. &c.
