The "Usual New Year's Resolutions.

V ■ * I hereby resolve to be good ; Through all the glad New Year, Be a tireless searcher for all kinds of ' vircher,' And do nothing 1 my conscience to sear ; I'll grow better at once and seraphicer, And I wish that my language was graphicer, . . To tell without base diminution, The strength of my great resolution. Yes, I hereby resolve to do good, I have made up my mind to do right ; You may bet your )ast copper I'm going 1 to act proper, And shine like a star in the night. Purge all diabolical animus, Grow honest, and good, and magnanimous, This resolve no power can shake it — Until I get ready to break it.
