For the Dinner.
What 1 have Seen !
I've seen huge 1ountains pwards ri-e
Lilling their summits towards tihe skies,
I've stood beside tour awful steep
And view'd the cataract onward leap.
I've seen the sun, with wings of light,
Disperse the gloomy shades of night;
With warms embrace in roy howers
Swvell opening buds to blooming flowers.
I have seen bright spring her horn renew
And bring forth flowers adl wet with dew.
Still I've seen nothing 1 to touch "
In beauty or grandier Whal -bonan. Roach.

It it yentltman should choose
To wait Lpon)a ady,
If the lady don't I efue?
Or-to speak a little plniner,
'T'hat the mae.wing all may know
Is it any body's busioess
If a lady has a beau!
I ta person's onl the sidettlwalk,
Whether great or whether small,
Is it anybody's busintets
Where that persons means to call
Or, if you see a person
As he's callig anywhere,
Is it any of your litsimess
W\lhat his business nay be there ?
The subs:atce of our query.
Simply sttted would be this
Is it anybody's business
What another's business is ?
Ii it is; or if it isn't,
We wou hal teitl!y like to know,
For we're certain it it isn't,
There are some who mtake it so.
If it is, we'll ,join the rabble,
And act the noble part
,Of the tats lers and defamers
Who throngl the public inart ;
Taut it not, we'll act the teacher,
Until each meddler learns
It were better in the future
To mind his own concerns.
