I'LIFLRTI. (From Eliza Cook's Journal,) Tp married men of England Each one whose wife will leave All buttoiiless, a thousand times, A collar or a sleeve!— Your desperate voices raise again To match the female foe; And keep murmuring deep While your shirts unbuttoned go; While your eollal s fail you, short or long, And your wrists unbuttoned go. Corazzas need no bulwarks No sleeve or front in heap Their pride iis simple fit, and fold, Avd buttons that will keep. With common sense, in modern days Fashion at last began To cut the cloth, and make the shirt, According to the man. Yet his collars fail him even now, And his wrists unbuttoned go. "Tho snowy shirt of England Shall be the cause of strife, Till every button be sewed on In time, by every wife.- ,Then, then ye Female Peace Makers! Our Song and Feast shall flow, To tbe famp. of your name, When our shirts well buttoned go; When our collars fasten, short and long, And our wrist-bands buttoned go."
