An echo has virtues!
Wisdom displays itself only in discrete sileuee.

A WAIL FROM THE SEMINAR.
I have wandered, in the winter
When the rabit tracks were new,
1 ill my feet were dea I as lumber
And my ears were "sleeping" loo,
1 have battled with the blizzard
As he scampered o'er the plains
Till I've felt my body needled
With ihose sharp mysterious paius,

And noiy students rankly slurred.

To se him in his wrath arise.
And loud applause
Attests the justice of his cause.

Around, below, and overhead.

Till in weleom death they fall.
Must Columbia recreant falter,
Lnggartf justice ever sleep
While the b -nes or slaughtered seamen
Call from yon polluted deep?

Not dreaming that a "copper man"
Was standing by to oust

And tutde him sunnier do a n.
"THE IMtKACHEItS AT THE SHOW."
Up in "Niger Heav'n" I sat
Working "Lehrer" yw for you.
While I siw the preachers' "frat"
Holding down a "cushioned pew"
We saw Satin, Faust us conquer
Win for him Marg'rite so fail
Cause the death of her dear mother
Bringing ruin and dcsp.tir.
We with Faustus viewed the loarings
Of the "dear ones" there who fell
Leaving earth with all its craving?
For another place in well,
While we saw the roaring Cre
Raging fiends in iierce combat.
What amMst such anguish, ire,
Thought you "pica hers" there of that?
