A GERMAN Chemist has lately anal. ised one of the Episcopal Addresses presented to Bonaparte, which he finds to contain 120 grains of Flattery, 100 grains of Hypocrisy, 80 grains of Blasphemy, 63 grains of Irony, but not one grain of Truth.



No, faithful Pen, thou ne'er didst place
A blush on modest beauty's face ;

Ne'er hast thou nam'd a villain great,
Nor stain'd a worthy name with venom'd hate.

THE late Gen. Le Clerc, it is said, is now found to be a man of high birth ; as it seems he was born on the top of a moun. tain.

LORD LANESBOROUGH was so passionately fond of dancing, that in his old age, and in the most violent fits of the gout, he danced with as much transport as when he was young and in good health. After the death of the Prince of Denmark, husband to Queen Anne, he demanded a private audience of that Princess ; which was to persuade her to dance, in order to preserve her health and dispel her grief. Hence the following lines of Pope, in his Epistle to Lord Cobham.

" As weak, as earnest, and as gravely out, " As sober Lanesb'row dancing in the gout."


But why 'gainst egotism dost thou strive ?

A FRENCH author says, that in the time of the Pontificate of St. Gregory the Great, that is, about the middle of the eighth century, the air was filled with such a deleterious influence, that they who sneezed immediately expired. On this the devout Pontiff appointed a form of prayer, and a wish to be said to persons Îneezing, for averting from them the fatal effects of this malignancy.

Inform how oft, by inch of taper,
Thou hast sajourn'd o'er fields of paper ;
How oft, with him, on ola Pegassus,
