THE OONSTITTJTIONAIj CON
I wants a piece of talito
To make inv doll a gdess;
I dosen't want a big piece
A yard'll do, I dess.
1 wlxh ynn'd frod my needle,
And find my fimble, too;
I has sucb heaps ' sowin'
I dou't know what to do,
My Hopry tore her apron
A turn 'Ira' down the stairs
And Cicsar's h-st his pantaloons,
And needs a nuzzer pair.
1 wants my Maud a bonnet:
She hasn't none at all;
And Fred must have a jacket;
ilia tuzzer oue's too email.
I wants to go to grandma's,
You promised me 1 might;
I know she'll like to see me
I waut to go to-night.
She luts me wash the dishes,
Aud see in grandpa's watch
I wish 1 had free, four pennies
To buy some butter scotch.
I wants some newer mittens
I wish you'd knit me some,
'Cause most my linger freezes.
They leak so in thefum,
I wored it out last summer
A pulliu' George! sled
I wish you woiild'u laugh ho,
It hurts moin my head.
I wish I had a cookie
I'm hungry's I t an be;
If you hasn't p etty large ones.
You'd better bring me free.
THE FOUR SEASONS.
From beyond the purple chmnds,
Through the mild and balmy air,
Start the April sunshine down
On the world so freah and fair,
'Mid the verdue, here and tliere,
Flowerets peep with golden eyes;
Sparkling rain-drops gently fall,
Like a blessing from the skies.
lo the field, the farmer tofts;
Singing gaily, at his plow;
lu the budding woodland, near,
Hear the robins coral now,
All the earth seems glad and bright;
Winter's storms are gone from view,
Nature, from her rest, awakes
Once again to bloom anew.
Through the Bjltry summer skies,
Light clouds slowly come nnd go,
Peacefully their shadows fall
On the dreamy world below.
Merrily i ho crickets sing,
In the meadows green and fair.
Summer roses are iti bloom
And their fragraucc tills the air.
Softly sweeps the southern wind.
O'er the field of waving corn;
Joyfully along the air,
Sounds the weleome dinner horn,
Aud its echoes die away
'Mid the leafy wood near by.
Where, beneath the tie.-., at tioon
Lazily the cattle lie.
Gloomy clouds are Hying past.
And the cool October breeze.
Sighing with a mournful Round
Through the brauches of tlio-treea,
Scatter Autumn's golden leave
Uoiighly over the world so drear.
Siuniner's sunny days are past,
And the wiutry storms are near.
Faded are the (lowers now.
Ami the earth seoms bleak aud lone;
To a more cougenial clime
Have the swallows homeward flown.
Gathered is the goldeu grain
From the stubble fields below.
Soou will weary nature find
Rest, beneath the winter's snow.
From the North the chilling winds,
With a solemn moaniug. blow
O'er the dark and dismal world,
Covered by the Heecy snow,
Autumn's glory long has tied.
And the trees, so tall and bare.
Stand like sentinels, alone,
Iu the cold and frosty air.
Seethe crystal iceiele.
Clinging to the frozen caves,
f And the cold, white window panes
Covered o'er with phantom leaves,
And the thrifty farmers, now
Seated by their cheerful fires.
Take their comfort and their ease.
While the good old year expires.
Drop follows drop, and Bwvlls
With raiu the sweeping river;
Word follows word, aud tella
A truth that lives forever.
Flake follows flake, like spirits
Whose wings the wiud dissever;
Thought follows thought, and light
The rvalm of mind forever.
Rai follows beam to cheer
The cloud a bolt would shiver;
Throb follows throb, and fear
Gives place to ioy forever.
The drop, the flake, the beam,
Tench us a leasou ever;
The word, the thought, the dream,
Impress the soul forever,

After some debate Mr. Vanghan took the

to see what check the senate was on hasty leg
