A TRIP TO BRISTOL. (Continued from our last week's impression.) DUBLIN BAY. ALL who to Dublin come, for views or bathing, V ■' In praises of its bay are most diffuse The dandy tourist said it was a neat thing, While many, who would Ireland abuse, Confess it like to Naples-that's a great thing! But men of business say it is the deuce In its whole width they can't find one safe station For all the money it has cost the nation. Yet has there been great posing of good skulls Fashioning moles, now running to decay, To save the harbour from two Irish bulls That rear their heads on each side of the bay, And light-houses, so thick, that shattered hulls, Are vainly puzzled to find out their way. All prudent ornamental piles,-no doubt, < t Superfluous capital should be so laid out. This, as it may, we passed what was Dunleary, Now Kingstown, as KingGeorgethe Fourth besought, When from its shores and peopled rocks did steer he- It was the only change his visit wrought; Confiding Ireland was let grow weary, But not, Viola-like, to pine in thought- She soon relapsed into her old expressions, Of toasts and squabbles, meetings and processions. < (III-fated country blest above the world, If nature's gifts alone could make thee so But evil government hath o'er thee hurled A curse of want and wretchedness, and woe, And while the flag of liberty, unfurled, In every age and climate, doth bestow Some genial triumph, thy sons still are slaves. With but the heirship ot-their fathers' graves. And such, I fear. shall long be their condition, While party feelings rend their kindred bearts- While principle succumbs to false ambition, And busy bigots work their wily arts; Imperial En-gland, I've a shrewd suspicion, Laughs at this ceaseless war of wordy darts, And ll:ngs the nation's chatters on the shelf, < Whose jarring factions paralyze herself.) The very testimonial we projected Ot his said roval visit to our isle, i.e>np)e, or palace, could it be effected, Or hosp.trtl, or some such useful pile. quite torgot, except that they collected What could have done it in a decent style— Perhaps the're right our age saw all his movements— The next may build the record, with improvements.
