THE LORDS AHE THE LIBERATORS. [From Fruser's Magazine for October.] When first Big Dan old Ireland taught To blister with agitation, To bully and barn in heart and thought, 'Twas dubb'd Conciliation! He put hate into every whisky-glass, And spite into every tatur So they utter'd a bull while their hearts were full, And they called him Liberatur! They called him Liberator—yes, 'Twas a sweet term of 11 soft sawder," Because he liberated them From every law and order! Htt^ade them curse Old England's sway, And no license -could be greater Than that of his own tongue-save their's. Who called him Liberator! "tTjjrose the Government at last To quench this Irish Crater," This foul-mouth'd mount with lava lies, Tius burly Coiapirator In crime deep-dyed they had him tried,— The fairest way in natur," And the jury took his liberty Away from the Liberated There were many bad boys tried with him, Each one a friend and victim Dan never had firm follower yet, But, like a rogue, he trick'd him. Well, he trick'd these followers into gaol, Their sure goal soon or later, But, though he had thus imprison'd 'em all, They called him Liberator Yes, Barrett and Gray swore every day, Though fast they were in prison Ani John his son, a darling one, Though he'd jeopardised his wisen; And Duffy and Steele, though he'd made them feel, With Ray-the Conciliator, „ How. pleasant a bin was a gaol to be in, AH called him Liberatoi- „ The writ of error to get them oat Was sent to the English judges, • And because they knew that the law was true, He thought them pack of fudges! "ne4 haye taken away their wigs and gowns, • And togged them in spurs and gaiters, Before one spalpeen in Dublin fown Should have called them Liberators! Bat then the writ went up to the Lords, Those much Dan-vilified craters -HeJod have taken'away their titles and swords, And made them tavern waiters, Before he'd have said a word for them, Beyond calling them addle-paters, If they hadn't that day have made him say, The Lords are the Liberators! The Hall, the Hall, ts once more alive, The Hall of Conciliation Aul Ireland's now turned into a town, And Dublin into a nation! And there's such a row in that place of peace That it glads the Agitator, » At be sits alone, like Old Nick on his throne, And plays the Liberator! Hurrah for Denman loud shouts Dan, u For he's an illigant lawyer; But Lypdhurst is an evil man, Although just now top-sawyer; The devil make room," he cries, foribrougham, That squeaking, sneaking cratur And give me Denman all over the world, For he's a Liberator Hurrah for Campbell!—pride I feel To think that Dan can advance a Lor' .(Oh, Ray! what a pickle I was in When they made that Sawney chancellor!) The Campbells are coming,' and so is Repeal, Bagpipes are out of date, or I'd get up to his honour a Highland reel,— Och! Campbell's a Liberator u Hurrah for Cottenham He's the lad To suit me and my money; As he never sat en a criminal bench, He was sure to acquit me, honey Cottenham, Campbell, Denman, all,— Get up, ye sons of taturs! JJ" And call me the devil, or what ye like, But they are the Liberators
