Yes surelv.11 "Then upon my soul and honour, ma'am, you'll find, in a certain angle of that dreary pile, called Poet's Corner, a few smaller names than Slum," retorted-that gentleman, tapping himself expressively on the forehead to imply that there was some slight quantity of brains behind it. I've got a little trifle here, now," said Mr. Slum, taking off his hat which c was full of scraps of paper, a little trifle here, thrown off in the heat of the moment, which I should say was exactly thething you wanted to set this place on fire with. It's an ac- rostic-tlie name at this moment is Warren, but the idea's a convertible one, and a positive inspiration for Jarley. Have the acrosti c." "I suppose it's very dear," said Mrs. Jarley. Five shillings," returned Mr. Slum, using his pencil as a tooth-pick "Cheaper than any prose." I couldn't give more than three said Mrs. Jarley, "-And six," retorted Slum. "Come. Three-and-six." Mrs. Jarley was not proof against the poet's insinuating manner, and Mr. Slum entered the order in a small note-book as a three-and-sixpenny one. Mr. Slum then withdrew to alter the acrostic, after taking a most affectionate leave of his patroness, and promising to return, as soon as he pos- sibly could, with a fair copy for the printer. As his presence had not interfered with or interrupted the preparations, they were now far advanced, and were com- pleted shortly after his departure. When the festoons were all set up as tastily as they might be, the stupendous collec- tion was uncovered, and there were displayed, on a raised platform some two feet from the floor, running round the room and parted from the rude public by a crimson rope breast high, divers sprightly effigies of celebrated characters, singly and in groups, clad in glittering dresses of various climes and times, and standing more or less unsteadily upon their legs, with their eyes very wide open, and their nostrils very much inflated, and the muscles of their legs and arms very strongly developed, and their countenances expressing great surprize. All the Gentlemen were very pigeon-breasted and very blue about the beards, and all the ladies were mi- raculous figures; and all the ladies and gentlemen were look- ing intensely nowhere, and staring with extraordinary earn- estness at nothing. When Nell had exhausted her first raptures at this glorious sight, Mrs. Jarley ordered the room to be cleared of all but herself and the child; and sitting herself down in the arm-chair in the centre, formally invested her with a willow wand, long used by herself for pointing out the characters, and was at great pains to instruct her in her duty. That," said Mrs. Jarley in her exhibition tone, as Nell touched a figure at the beginning of the platform, is an unfortunate Maid of Honor in the time of Queen Elizabeth, who died from pricking her finger in consequence of working upon a Sunday. Observe the blood trickling from her finger; also the gold-eyed needle of the period, with which she is at work." All this Nell repeated twice or thrice, pointing to the finger and the needle at the right times, and then passed on to the next 11 That, ladies and gentlemen," said Mrs. Jarley, is Jas- per Packlemerton, of atrocious memory, who courted and married fourteen wives, and destroyed them all by tickling the soles of their feet when they was sleeping in the consci- ousness of innocence and virtue. On being brought to the scaffold and asked if he was sorry for what he had done, he replied yes, he was sorry for having let'em off so easy, and hoped all Christian husbands would pardon him the offence. Let this be a warning to all young ladies to be particular in the character of the gentlemen of their choice. Observe that his fingers is curled as if in the act of tickling, and that his face is represented with a wink, as he appeared when com- mitting his barbarous murders." When Nell knew all about Mr. Packlemerton, and could say it without faltering, Mrs. Jarley passed on to the fat man, and then to the thin man, the tall man, the short man, the old lady who died of dancing at a hundred and thirty-two, the wild boy of the woods, the woman who poisoned fourteen fam ilies with pickled walnuts, and other historical characters and interesting but misguided individuals. And so well did Nell profit by her instructions, and so apt was she to remem- bei-them, that by the time they had been shut up together for a couple of hours, she was in full possession of the history of the whole establishment, and perfectly competent to the en- lightenment of visitors. Mrs. Jarley was not slow to express her admiration at this happy result, and carried her young ifi-iend and pupil to in- spect the remaining arrangements within doors, by virtue of which the passage had been converted into a grove of green- baize hung with the inscriptions she had already seen (Mr. Slum's productions), and a highly ornamented table placed at the upper end for Mrs. Jarley herself, at which she was to preside and take the money, in company with his Majesty King George the Third, Mr. Grimaldi as clown, Mary Queen of Scots, an anonymous Gentleman of the Quaker persua- sion, and Mr. Pitt holding in his hand a correct model of the bill for the imposition of the window duty. The prepara- tions without doors had not been neglected either; for a nun of great personal attractions was telling her beads on the little portico over the door and a brigand with the blackest possible hair, and the clearest possible complexion, was at that moment going round the town in a cart, consulting the minature of a lady. It now only remained that Mr. Slum's compositions should be judiciously distributed that the pathetic effusions should find their way to all private houses and tradespeople; and that the parody commencing If I knovv'd a donkey," should be confined to the taverns and circulated only among the lawyers' clerks and choice spirits of the place. When this had been done, and Mrs. Jarley had waited on the boarding- schools in person, with handbills composed expressly for them, in which it was distinctly proved that wax-work re fined the mind, cultivated the taste, and enlarged the sphere of the human understanding, that indefatigable lady sat down to dinner, and drank out of the suspicious bottle to a flou- rishing campaign.
