NEW YEAR'S ADDRESSES REVIEWED.

We are induced to give entire the address of the

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.

If young-be your pleasures not merely ideal ;

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

love.

We have it from respectable authority, that when M. 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."
