Morning Chronicle; Least, by lopping away some of its lines, we might suppress some of its beauties. The writer has ve. ry ingeniously introduced Mr. Burr's toast-that celebrated toast which convinced all good honest re. publicans that Mr. Burr had deserted their party, or at least their principles.

And while mid gay Fancy's illusions you rove, May the joys in perspective still prove to be real, Whether springing from honor, from fortune or

Talleyrand gave in the reporis, the week before last, relative to the numbers of our brave Volunteers a&tually embodied, the firft Consul heaved a ligh nearly bordering on a groan.-"Well, Monleur Premier Consul," said Talley. rand," courage ! we have five millions of brave men at our disposal.” “Not so we!!, my friend,” replied Bonaparte, fighing again—"Cæsar himself had fallen, had Brit. ons been united."
If aged--and down life's declivity tending, Smooth may you decline, and calm hopes swell
your breast; Till like sol in mild glories of evening descending,
You tranquilly sink with your fathers to rest.
At this season of mirth, when tho full tide of pleas

And joyous emotions en.liven each eye ;
Then rise to indulge in those pleasures celestial,
Established in regions beyond human ken ; That bliss too exalted for beings terrestial,
