A CONSERV \TIVE SONG. From Blackwood's Magazine. Once more we raise, with glad accord, the old inspiring strain, And urge the social ring around the brimming bowl to drain; Nor much the liquor or the lay will go against the grain, Where all have thirsted thus to see replac'd in power The best of good Conservatives, who love the olden again time. A bumper to our gracious Queen We hail the happy day, That clears from her refulgent crown the party stain away No sovereign of a narrow sect, she shines with equal ray On all who. by her people's choice, are sent to aid her sway, Nor least on good Conservatives, who love the olden time. A bumper, now, to Wellington!—fcut words of ours would fail To speak his fame whose whisper'd nam1) makes Britain's fees grow pale In war, in peace, abroad, at home, his deeds have told the tale, Yet doubt we if, with mightier spell, his sword or pen prevail. In this our best Conservative, who loves the olden time. A bumper to the Premier next, the worthy and the wise, Who, aiming at his country's weal, would spurn a meaner prize And ever, as the time demands, his powers, his virtues rise, A noble sea mark set on high in Europe's longing eyes. To guide all good Conservatives, who love the olden time. A bumper to the patriot pair. as side by side they stand May Graham and noble Stanley still adorn our gallant band 0 joyful hour! that pluck'd them from the burning like a brand, And saved them for a better day to light and lead the land, With other good Conservatives, who love the olden time. Nor only to the proud in place we bid the goblet flow, We grant a debt of gratitude alike to high and low On every inch of every field we've fought and fell'd the foe, And Maga and the Muses nine have least of all been slow To back our best Conservatives, as in the olden time. A bumper then to Christopher'. the hand has help'd us much. That still on necks of evil men has laid the ceaseless crutch From Cape-town unto Caithness-shire, from Canada to Cutch. You'll look in vain, by land ormain, to find another such As he. this good Conservative, who loves the olden time. A brighter era faot begins its prospects to unfold. When right with might, and love with law, a peaceful sway shall hold When proud again our flag shaH float, and spotless as of old, Ere Elliots hnckster'd brave men's blood for base bar- barian gold- Abhorr'd of all Conservatives, who love the olden time. Then give to greet -,the good old cause," one cheer, one bumper more. We see. by many a happy sign,long years of joy in store; Democracy, almost defunct, lies prostrate on the floor. And Whiggery shakes its shorten'd tail, and gives a dying roar. Subdued by good Conservatives, as in the olden time.
