This is a simple soog, 'tis true, And songs libs theise are never nice; And yet we'll try and scatter through A pinch or two of good advice. Then listen, pompous friends, and learn Never to boast of much renown, For Fortune's wheel is on the turn, And some go np, snd some go down. We know a vaat amount of stocks A vast amount of pride insurss; But fate has picked so many looks, We wouldn't like to warrant yours. Remember, then, a ud never spurn '1 he one whoae hand is hard and brown; For he is likely to go up, And yon are likely to come down. Another thing yon will sgree, (The truth may be as well coafsissd,) That " codfish aristocracy" Is but a HcaJy thing at best. And though the fishes large and strong Mny seek the little ones to drown, Yet fishes all, both great and small, Are going up and coming down. Our lives are full of chance and change, And chmice, you know, is never sure; And 'twere a doctrine new and strange That places high are most secure. And though thelckle god may smile, And yi?*ld the sceptre and tne crown, 'Tis only for a little while, Then B goes up and A comes down. This world for you and me, my friend, Hath something more than pounds and peace, Then let me humbly recommend A little use of common sense. Thus lav all pride of place aaiae, And have a care on whom you frown. For fear you'll see him going up, When you are only coming down. 0 ITY AFFAIRS. CORPORATION OF WASHINGTON.
