Tall, and slender, and sallow, and dry;
His form was bent and his gait was slow,
And his long, thin hair, was white as snow.
But a wonderful twinkle shone in his eye;
And be sang every night, as he went to bed,
"Let ns be happy down here below;
The living should live though the dead be
Said the jolly old pedagogue, long ago.
He taught tho scholars thc rule of three,
Reading and writing and history, too;
He took the little ones up on his knee,
For a kind old heart in his breast had ho,
And the wants of the littlest child ho
"Learn while you're young."' he often said,
"There is much "to enjoy down hero
Life for the living, and rest for the dead!"
Said the jolly old pedagogue, long ago.
With stupidest boys he was kind and cool,
Speaking only iii gentlest tones;
The rod was scarcely known in his school
Whipping, to him. was it barbarous rule,
And too hard work for his poor old bones;
Besides, it was painful, be sometimes said;
' ' We should make life pleasant down here
The living need charity more than thc
Said the jolly old pedagogue, long ago.
He lived in the house by thc hawthorn
With roses and woodbine over thc door;
His rooms were quiet, and neat, and plain,
But a spirit of comfort there held reign,
And made him forget he was old and
"I need so little," be often said;
"And my friends and relatives here
Won't litigate over me when I am dead,"
Said the jolly old pedagogue, long ago.
But the pleasantest times that he had, of
Were the sociable hours ho used to pass,
With his chair tipped back to a neighbor's
Making an unceremonious call,
Over a pipe, and a friendly glass:
This was the finest pleasure, he said,
Of the many he tasted hore below.
"Who has no cronies had better be dead,"
Said the jolly old pedagogue, long ago.
Thc ioliv old pedagogue's wrinkled face,
Melted all over in sunshiny smiles;
Ha stirred his glass with an old-school
Chuckled, and sipped, and prattled apace,
Till thc house grew merry from cellar to
'Tm a pretty old man,"' he gently said.
"I've"lingered a long time here below;
But my heart is fresh, if my youth is fled!"
Said the jolly old pedagogue, long ago.
He smoked his pipe in the balmy air,
Every night, when the sun went down,
While thc soft wind played in his silvery
Leaving its tenderest kisses there.
On tho jolly old pedagogue's jolly old
And. feeling thc kisses, he smiled, and iftid:
'"Twas a glorious world down herc
Why wait for happiness till wo are dead?"
Said this jolly old pedagogue, long ago.

After the sun had sunk in the Wost,
And the lingering beams of golden ligh'

There "were angels waiting for him, I

Bricks " on Music and Hie Drama.
"Bricks," of the Mobile Advertiser,
thus discourses on music and the
drama, and some of his fun is rich
and racy :
Music AND TUE DRAMA.-It is be?
lieved that the once popular play of
"Cotton is King," which was with?
drawn from the stage, some time ago,
on account of thc " strike, " resulting
in a row in the theatre, and tho
"burst-lip" of the engagement with
the players, will be reproduced on tho
Southern boards a few seasons hence,
with a new stock company from abroad.
This is quite likely, unless the man?
agement have "gone-a-wool gather?
ing" to a much greater extent than
there is reason to suppose.
A stock ccmpany is being organ?
ized in New Orleans, with plenty of
money to start, for the purpose of
bringing out in capital style, "A Big
Thing on Ice." The managers expect
to make money by this Icelandic
drama, but we predict, without in?
tending to discourage them, that no
matter how melting the thing may be,
it will be coldly received.
Among the new music jw i issued by
a Louisville publisher is ""Why Can
We Not be Brothers ?"-words by
Clarence Prentice. We learn, olli
cially, that the same house will soon
publish a companion piece, "Why
Can We Not Lu Brothers-in-law ?"
words by Bricks, inscribed to a young
gentleman whose beautiful and ac?
complished sister is well known in
It is understood that Dion Bourci
cault'splay of ' ' Arrah-na-Pogne " was
withdrawn from thc British stage
on account of its tendency to encou?
rage the Irish peasantry in the care?
less handling of lire-arms. The Eng?
lish, by the way, have no particular
objection to the fens during the shoot?
ing season ; but they want to do all
the shooting themselves, and hence
their dislike to the Fenians.
We gather from some hints thrown
out hy the London press that Adah
Isaacs Menkin has been successfully
palming herself off on the people of
that city as " The Child of the Sun."
! It is well known in this city that they
are not related at all. Little did the
! British public think, when it so
I warmly applauded her as "Mazeppa,"
I in the Georgia costume, that it was
nursing in its bosom an Adah Illili
would turn and sting it with such a
Macauley, whose essays und History
of England are not wholly unknown,
;s playing "Bamboozle "'at the Varie?
ties, in New Orleans. We are glad to
see that he has abandoned the field of
the essayist and the historian, for
which he is altogether unfitted, and is
addicting himself to low comedy.
Theatricals are brisk in New York.
Mat Maretzek is also having a heavy
run in the operatic line. He has re?
cently brought out a new composition,
in which the celebrated "thorough
base," James Gordon Bennett, ap?
pears as the ' ' Knight of the Black
Mail," and is made to sing small. Tin
latter incurs the chief expense, thc
enterprise having cost him aboul
$50,000. Henry Ward Beecher i.<
still starring it at Plymouth Church,
the chief place of amusement iv
Brooklyn. He recently appeared
there in a new farce, entitled ' ' Whai
and Where is Hell ?" They say he
didn't get fully down to his subject ot
tlie occasion, but there is little doubl
that he will after awhile.
"What WiU He Do With It," is th<
title of a dramatized version of thc
Abolition story of "The Colored Ele
phant," which is just now haring ?
splendid run on the radical boards.
The fine old aria from the Open
"Dai you, Sambo? No, 'tis Jim;
You're a good looking nigger,
But yon can't come in
No" use knocking at the door,"
has recently become very popular ii
Connecticut, and was rendered witl
fine effect on a recent occasion, whei
many thousands of voices joined ii
We aro pleased to announce that i
young amateur of this city, who oecu
pies an apartment over the shop o
an Israelite, and who was recentl;
indicted by him as a nuisance fo
practising on the trombone and clari
onet, will shortly come out with :
new piece of sheet-music, adapted ti
the bass-drum and Chinese gong, an<
entitled "The Ear of the Jew Below.
A very unsuccessful miner, just re
turned from Idaho, gave, as we learn
a private rehearsal immediately oi
his arrival last evening, for thc bench
of his wife, singing the beautiful sole
"I bring thee an ivy-leaf
Only an ivy-leaf,"
with such impressive skill that hi
audience was affected to tears. Sh
declared that the strain had a "dyin
fall," and affected her very peculiarly
reminding her of her unpaid milliner
bills on Dauphin street. It mus
have been delightful.
The old combination of "Sha!
speare's two plays, the "Comedy c
Errors" and "Measure for Measure,
continues to draw good houses at th
daily Municipal matinee. Not a littl
to the satisfaction of the Treasure:
the performances always end with th
caxiital pantomime entitled:
"I lay ten dollars down,
And count them one by one."
It is whispered in the higher circh
of society that the writer of this art
eic (whose gorgeous sleeping apar
m^.nts are very near the countinj
rooms of two printing offices, ar
who is aroused every morning, "e:
the morning star," by the boysteroi
and profane cuttings up of the stree
dealers in newspaper literature,)
seriously thinking of bringing out
new drama in one act, intended chief
to illustrate the true design of tl
undergrowth of the country, ai
styled "The Newsboy-Let Me Lil
Him for His Mother."

After twenty-four hours of trial, it was
found among the debris, and on opening
it this dav bas yielded np its contents in
