Poetry.

now to eivp: and how 7 to /die. (By Andrew Kinross). Plow, long since Man first had his birth ? What ages has he spent on earth ? By what gradations ho arose ? Who are his friends, who are his foes ? Such themes should exercise the mind, The truth you ought to try to find, And live upon the. noblest plan, 1 Hess 0 i a brute, more of a man. Strive ever for the wisest laws, And elevate the humblest cause. And let it always be your creed To check monopoly and g-rced. Avoid all that is coarse and low, Euxury, ostentation, show ; Always despise ill-gotten wealth, Gained by means approaching stealth Be over courteous, fair, and kind, To females always be refined ; However poor, you always can Act ns an upright gentleman. Enjoy your life at every chance, With music, conversation, dance, And use the gifts our Maker sent With moderation still content. Though Fate may never send you fame. Always preserve a spotless name, Eet your high standard never fall, For self-respect is best of all. If thus you act. time may pass by. You're fit to lice and fit to die, And yon may draw your latest breath. Not seeking, nor yet fearing, death.
