â P I PICKINGS F- "PUNCH." I THOUGHTS ON THE NEW YEAR. I BY WILLIAM BARLOW. Lo another year hath ended, Numbered with the changeless past. Will my clothes, if they are mended, Through another twelvemonths last ? Since when last I sought a tailor Longer 'tis than I can say Yet these garments must grow staler Ere for fresh I'll choose to pay. Faded c!oth will hold together, Due repairs preserve old suits But, though skill will clout shoe-leather, Oh, how soon we wear out Boots Ah what art avails to cobble Uppers, cracked and full of holes, Though we may contrive to hobble On and on by cure of soles ? Here's a hat, which hath exuded Pinguid ooze by length of wear; Of its nap 'tis all denuded Hats as well as heads grow bare Onr corporeal forms, obeying Not our own, but Nature's will, Year by year go on decaying, But our clothes go faster still! Good for years, yet this old raiment May outlast this mortal clay, May I so have no more payment To provide for new array They must spare, whose means are slender, What they best without can go That which grieves me to surrender, Least of all, is outward show. Food and liquor cheer and cherish Us in passing through this vale, Yield us pleasure whilst they perish, As, for instance, beef and ale. Unconsumed apparel shield us Best against sharp atmosphere; Its consumption no good yields us, Only costs so much a-year. AND IT DOES LOOK LIKE IT.âSomebody says, tha judging from appearances, the National Shakspeard Committee seems to think that the most appropriate tribute to the author of the grandest of Scotch tragedies is a Great Mull. THE GLASS OF FASHION."âOur Theatrical Mana- gers, who adapt Messrs Pepper and Dirckes' patent to dramatic purposes, find their best authority in the great- est of Dramatists himself, who distinctly states that the first object of the Stage is to Hold the Mirror up to Nature." NAVAL NEws.-The great advance which our Ad- miralty has made in the art of navigation is not thoroughly known to the tax-paying public. In the hope of mak- ing people more ready to receive the tax-gatherer, we subjoin a line which we have just cut from the Edin- burgh Courant"- We understand that the British Fleet is going to Madrid."
