[In the following little poem the writer subscribes

to the notion, said to be prevalent among African negroes, that death not only releases them from bondage, but also restores them to their relations in Africa)

A very toper, who well lov'd his glass,

Was inj'ring fortune, health, and mind ;
For drunkards, tho’their purse be full, aias,

Will soon its bottom find !
Once with a jovial set he carried on the game,

Till all his senses were in liquor drown'd;
The friends retired - his wife a prudent dame,

Stretch'd on the floor his senseless body found,
And caus'd it to be plac'd within a tomb,
Where in the midst of silent gloom,
The bloated drunkard lay,
Till all the fumes had work'd away.

There was a majesty in the countenance of Louis XIV, which awed those who came in his presence.-An old officer was confounded and hesitated in his speech, fo. liciting fome favor from Louis, and not being able to finish his address, faid, • Sire, I do not tremble thus before your enemies."--He obtained his request without further difficulty.

His bier is borne : The sable train

By youthful virgins led :
Daughters of injur'd Afric, say
Why raise ye thus th' heroic lay,

Why triumph o'er the dead ?

When waking he observ'd the den of death

There sees 2 cofin standing at his feet,

And there a pall and winding-sheet
He scarce thro' fear could draw his breath !
" What's here?" he cries, my wife is sure a

This said, his spouse, dressid out like dame Alecto,

With visage mask'd and accent feign'd,
Approaches, and presents a soup which well

Might Satan suit. All this enough explain'd
That he was now a citizen of Hell.
