BY ROBIN BATFLh VAIN, A. .
O dainty toot!
O gaiter-boot !
To piety you're shocking;
I only know
Of one thing worse,
And that's a snow-white stocking.
So neat and clean
E'en stoles must agree
To you to vote,
What Gray once wrote,
A handsome L-E-G.
The /aing theme
Or midnight dream,
The very soul of song;
Man wants you little
' Here below,
And never wants you long.
By Plato ne'er
Sent tripping here ;
By Pluto rather given,
To lead poor man
(An easy plan)
To any place but Heaven.
Yet still I vow
There's magie now
About a woman's foot,
And cunning was
The wizard hand
That made a gaiter-boot.
For while the knave
The gaiter gave
To mortals to ensnare them,
Mankind he hoaxed,
And even coaxed
The Angels down to wear them.
I."gA Quaker on hearing a person curse
a particular piece of road, went up to him
and said, "Friend, I am under obligations
to thee. What thou hast done I wonId have
done, but my religion forbids me. Don't
let thy conscience, however bridle thee.
Give thy tongue, wings, and suffer not the
prejudices of others to paralyze the tongue
of justice and long suffering-yea, verily.

DESIRABLE TW? RESIDENCE

MY FAMILY RESIDENCE In the town
of Clinton, in which I am now living, in
cluding the entire premises, lot, dwelling house,
kitchen, store-rooms, carriage houses, stables,
cribs, and flower and' kitchen gardens, besides
all other appurtenances necessary and conveni
ent for a comfortable family residence.
The lot is situated just near enough to the
public square to be both convenient and re
tired; measures seventy-five feet front by three
hundred back, bounded on the east, north and
south by a public street, and on the west by
the residence of D. C. Hardee, Esqr.
The dwelling house is two stories high, is
large and airy, raised several feet off of the
ground, to admit the free passage of air under
neath. It contains eight large rooms, four
above, and four below; four measures eighteen
feet square, and four are seventeen by eighteen.
There are also two large halls, one above, and
one below stairs. Also two balconies, both on
the upper story, one in front, the other in the
rear of the house, with a piazza on the lower
story, fronting the street.
This house was built for a family residence,
and every attention was paid to the construc
tion of every portion of it, with a view to beau
ty of structure, comfort and health. N'o resi
dence can be found in the Parish surpassing It
ni these particulars.
The kitchen is large and commodious, con
taining four extra rooms.
There is a most excellent well on the prem
ises, affording water in good quantities, amply
sufficient for all family purposes.
The entire establishment built in the fall of
1858, is entirely new and in an admirable state
I will also sell all my kitchen and household
furniture, comprising: sofas, chairs, tables, win
dow curtains, of fine quality, selected for my
own use, &c. &c., on the most reasonable terms,
and in lots to suit the purchaser.
The house and fixtures are insured to the 7th
of May, 1868. The purchaser will have the
benefit of the insurance. A. LEVI.
