SIR, I Sent you a Song describing a brilliant chase with the Lambton

Hounds two or three years ago, and if you consider the following worthy of a niche in your Magazine it is much at your service.

Yours, &c.

A SUBSCRIBER. Elton, Dec. 6, 1831.

Though Midnight her dark frowning mantle is spreading,

Yet Time flies unhecded when Bacchus presides :
Fill, fill then your glasses, his power never dreading,

And drink to the hounds o'er which LAMBTON presides.
Though toast after tvast with great glee we have given,

The highest top-sparkling bumper decides,
That for bottom, pace, beautyon this side of Heaven-

Unrivall’d the hounds o'er which LAMBTON presides !
Let Uckerby* boast of the feats of the Raby,

And Ravenscarrt tell what the Hurworth have done;
But the wide-spreading pastures of Sadberge can swear to

The brushes our fleet pack of fox-hounds have won.
Then that Sedgefield, our country, all countries outvies, Sir,

The highest top-sparkling bumper decides;
That we've foxes can fly, Sir....... or sinking, must die, Sir,

When press’d by the hounds o'er which LAMBTON presides.
Of their heart-bursting flys let the Leicestershire tell us,

Their burning-scent pastures, and that sort of stuff;
But give me a day with the Sedgefield brave fellows,

Where horses nor men ever cry “hold—enough!”
Whilst the blood of old Cæsar our foxes can boast, Sir,

May Lambton their only stern enemy be !
And the green waving gorse of our coverts, my toast, Sir-

Oh! the Dog and Bitch packs of the LANBTON for me!
* A celebrated covert in the Raby Hunt. + Ditto in the Hurworth.


- I don't think,” says Bill, “ them 'ere chaps, with their sprees,

Wot attack'd us just now, had a notion to rob us.”
“No,” says Tom; “but I think they have cotch'd the disease,

Which seem'd strongly inclining to Collar or mob us."

Pity the

Child of Misfortune! from thy birth

Bereft of every social joy,
Exiled from thy loved home on earth,

Thou wandered here TIE ITALIAN Boy !
With patient perseverance thou

Toil'd on amid life's dull employ,
And oft I hear thy accents now-


What pen can paint thy parents' state

of suffering, grief-of deep alloy,
When made acquainted with the fate

Of thee, their lost ITALIAN Boy!
Entrusted to a stranger-land,

Whose flattering hopes too oft decoy,
While roving on a foreign strand,

Thou still wert their ITALIAN Boy.
The demon came! fell fiends of hell

In human garb, but to destroy;
On thee their dire destruction fell,

The murderers of THE ITALIAN Boy.
Oh! may thy unburked spirit glide

To realms where care can ne'er annoy,
And Heaven afford what earth denied,
A refuge to the ITALIAN Box!
