And cries, “ Begone!" unto the imps,—and four Snatch their two hats and struggle for the door, Like ardent spirits vented from a cask, All blythe and boisterous,-but leave two more, With Reading made Uneasy for a task, To weep, whilst all their rates in merry sunshine bask,

Like sportive Elfins, on the verdent sod,
With tender moss so sleekly overgrown,
That doth not hurt, but kiss the sole unshod,
So soothly kind is Erin to her own!
And one, at Hare and Hound, plays all alone,
For Phelim's gone lo tend his step-dame's cow;
Ah! Phelim's step-dame is a canker'd crone !

Whilst other twain play at an Irish row,
And, with shillelah small, break one another's brow!

But careful Dominie, with ceaseless thrift;
Now changeth serula for rural hoe ;
But, first of all, with tender hand doib shift
His college gown, because of solar glow,
And hangs it on a bush, to scare the crow;
Meanwhile, he plants in earth the dappled bean.
Or trains the young potatoes all a-row,

Or plucks the fragrant leek for pottage green,
With that crisp curly herb, call'a Kale in Aberdeen.

And so he wisely spends the fruitful hours,
Linked each to each by labour, like a bee;
Or rules in Learning's ball, or trims her bow'rs;-
Would there were many more such wights as he,

To sway each capital academie
Or Cam and Isis, for alack! at each
There dwells, I wot, some dronish Dominie,

That does no garden work, nor yet doth teach,
But wears a floury head, and talks in flow'ry speech!

THE NEW ENGLAND COUNTRY SCHOOL. The following sketch of a Country School in New England—“as it was,” is copied from the “ Columbian Muse, a selection of American Poetry, from various authors-published by Matthew Carey, Philadelphia, 1794,"—where it is credited to the New Hampshire Spy.

THE COUNTRY SCHOOL
“Put to the door-the school's begun-
Stand in your places every one
Attend,
