BEHAVIOR BEFORE FOLK.
In reply to “ Behave yourself before folk.”
Can I behave, cau I behave,
Can I behave before folk?
When, wily elf, your 9leeky self
Girs me gang eyte before folk.
In a've do, in a’ ye say,
Ye've sic a pawkie, coaxing way,
That »nv poor wits ye lead astray.
Ami ding me doilt before folk.
Can I behave, can 1 behave.
Can I behave before folk?
While ye ensnare, can I forbear,
To kiss you, though before folk?
Can I behold that dimpled cheek,
Wher love ’*nang sunny smiles might beck,
Yet, howlet-like, my e'elids steek.
An’ shun sic light, before folk?
Can I behave, can 1 behave.
Can l behave before folk?
When ilka smile becomes a wile,
Enticing me—before folk?
That lip, like Eve's forbidden fruit,
Sweet, plump, an’ ripe, sae tempts me to't,
That I maun pres't, tho’ 1 should rue’t.
Aye, twenty times—before folk.
Can I behave, can I behave,
Can I behave before folk?
When temptingly it offers me
^ae rich a treat—before folk?
That gowden hair sea sunny bright.
That shapely neck o’ snawy white.
That tongue, e’en when it tries to flyte,
Provokes me tlll’t before folk.
Can 1 behave, can I behave,
Can I behave before folk.
When ilka charm, fresh young, and warm,
Crie9 “ kiss me now”—befoie folk?
An’ oh! »hat pawkie, rowin e’e,
So roguishly it blinks on me,
I ranna’ for my soul, let be
Fiae kissing you before folk.
Can I behave, can I behave,
Can I behave before folk,
When ilka glint conveys a hint
To tak’ a smack—before folk?
Ye own, that were we bnith alane,
Ye wadna grudge to grant me ane;
Weel, gin there be nae harm in’t then,
What harm is in’t before folk?
Can I behave, can I behave,
Can I behave befoie folk?
Sly hypocrite! An anchorite
Could scarce desist—before folk!
Hut after a’ that has been said.
Since ve are willing to be wed.
We’ll ha’e a •»blyihsotne bridal” made,
When ye’ll be mine before folk!
Then I’ll behave, then I’ll behave,
Then I’ll behave before folk*,
For whereas, then, ye’ll aft get “ ten,”
It vvinna be before folk.

NINE HUNDRED ACRES, or
h4,%*b°ul tw .-third, ot that fertile and well known
*Vw farm called IVEST GROVE, the property
^aw*».iif the heirs of the late Col. A. J. Smith. Of
this land, three hundred and fifty acre, were rcJc?i£
ed fiom the rWer, by a dike constructed of earth and
gravel drawn fr<.m lie lulls. About a third of this haa
been cleared and put in cultivation. The soil i* a ve
getable mould, five or six feet in depth- of course easy
of cul'ivntion, and not to be surpassed in fertility. It
is thought to lie well adapted to the growth of tobacco
of the finest sort—tbia, however, would be worth the
consideration ol planters. Could it be rented to a to
bacco grower, Ihe owner* would erect such houses as
might he deemed necessary for the business. The
other portion of the land has been ditched and fenced
with great care and expense, and has meadows of ve
ry considerable extent, well taken with timothy. No
land is better adapted to tbe production of grsss than
ibis Farm.
Tbe whole nine hundred acres will be rented or sold
altogether, or divided into several Farms to suit pur
chasers or tenants, if long leases could be effected,
very advantageous term* might be obtained. The
Farm has several substantial houses on it now, and
others would he built if it could be made an object.
A SllAD FISHERY, with all accommoda
ion* for laborers and the curing of fish, h»a been made
in that part of the river bordering the reclaimed land,
uid will be rented with the land or separately. Also,
A HO’. SE St LOT, containing two Acres,
ust without the corporate limits ol Alexandria, but
n i hat part of the town called the Village. 1 he house
s comfortable, and the garden is an early one. I he
ot has good watt r -nil fruit on it. Also,

SWISH to sell or exchange the above Farms for
mountain or limestone la.id They are aituated on
he Potomac Itiv* r, in Charles County, Maryland, 36
niles below Alexandria by land, and90 by water.
MI I ON IlILLcontains five hundred
Acres of (.and, and ia beautifully situated
about a mile from the river. The House,
which stands on an eminent hilt in the centra
if the (arm, with a commanding view of the river and
he adjacent country as far as the eye can reach, is
arge and spacious, containing four rooms and a large
lastuge on the low* r floor, with a kitchen, pantry and
dosets attached, alj tastefully arranged, and in tho
ough repair: The soil ia first rate, and well adapted
o the growth of the best Maryland Tobacco. This
'»rm is not more than one half cleared; the remain
lerisin Hickory, Osk, Cedar, Pine, Ac Foreligibi
ity of situation, beauty of prospect, and local advanta.
-es, this Farm is equalled by few and excelled by none.
THE BANKS OF THE DEE contains One
rhousand Acres of Laud or upwards, (the exact quan
ity is not ascertained.) It lies indirectly between
lilton Hill an I the rifer. This Farm is bounded on
bree sides by water, so that a short fence encloses the
r hole Farm. The aoil, though good, can be made, at
t'le or no -xpense, of the greatest fertility by the ap
dication of sea-ore, of which masse* float up daily up
n its shores. Its locality renders an easy access to
lie luxuries of the water—which abound in Fish, Oys*
:rs, and in their season Wild Fowl To the sportsman
Ilia place holds out the moat pleasing inducement—
lial of shooting on the wing—for which it ia not excel
id by any farm on the river.
To say nothing of the various other inducements and
dvantages these Farms possess, such as water earn
ge, the choice of markets, the access to steamboats,
ic Ac I shall only add that they are pleasantly aituated
1 an agreeable, genteel and social neighborhood, and
ritbin two miles of public worship. As I am deter
lined to sell, I invite those who with to purchase to
ee me at Milton Hill, aasuring the m a great bargain
nay be bought, and any length of credit given, upon
small portion of the purchaae money being paid in
