EXTRACTS FROM PUNCH & FUN." The:Salutation at Cherbourg. Air—" The Death of Nelson." Recitative. O'er good Bordeaux, at moderate cost possessed, Britannia cracks her filberts with a zest; May those light wines be hers no end of years, And in exchange France takes our ales and beers! Air. 'Twas we, in Cherbourg gay, • That with the Frenchmen lay, ''fe Each heart was jolly then, Amid the fire and smoke. Our ships were iron and oak, And ditto were our men. Our Dacres marked them on the wave; Three cheers their friends our seamen gave, Nor thought of war and booty. The captains had an extra can Of grog served out to every man, And hollaing was a duty. The harmless cannons roar Along the crowded shore- Our Dacres led the way His ship the Edgar named, Long be that Edgar famed! No man got drunk that day; We drank no mare than what we ought. Our brave. allies' good-will we sought, And not their lives and booty. From mouth to mouth the saying ran, This is the way for every man To have to do his duty." No death, nor any wound, From guns that did but sound, A single breast received; No harm on either aide. Hip, hip, hooray! we cried, To see what fun we've lived Hate between French and English past, And French and English friends at last; Free trade for war and booty." So Gladstone ends what Peel began, And England will confess that man 1 Has rather done his duty.
