sung, with the accompaniment of some merry

And that's Repudiation !

Yankee vows that every State

And if they paid each others debts,

And then throughout the nation,
They all become United Staten,'

'Stop, Mister Morris,' exclaimed Norah, laying
her hand upon his mouth, so as effectually to pre
vent a sound from escaping—'it's my mother yo're
talking of, and it would be ill-blood, as well as ill

It is a Act, universally known and credited in
the good barony of Bargy, that Morris Donovan
possessed an honest, sincere and affectionate heart—
brave as a lion and gentle as a dove. He was,
moreover, tine priest'. nephew—understood Latin as
well as the priest himself; and better even than that,
Ito was the beau, the Magnus Apollo, of the
parish; a fine noble-looking fellow, that all the
girls (from the house-keeper's lovely English niece
at Lord Gort's, down to little deaf Dm Mortican,
the lame dress-maker) were regularly and despe

times a little stupid—not exactly stupid either, but
slow of invention--would fight his way out of a
thousand scrapes, but could never get peaceably out
of one. No wonder then, that where fighting was
out of the question, Ito wao puzzled, and looked to
the ready wit of merry Norah for assistance. It
was not very extraordinary that he loved the fairy
creature—the sweetest, gayest of all Irish girls—
light of heart, light of foot, light of eye--now wee
ping like a child over a dead chicken or a plundered

music of her own cheering voice—now coaxing her
termagant mother, and anon comforting bee

over-arawn the sketch of my BIIIIIIOW lass; for al
though her native barony is that of Bargy, the two
may be considered as wedded and become ove.--

When they re-entered, the fresh-boiled potatoes

made not only it, but Mrs. Clary, jump.

So saying, Mrs. Clary endeavored to rescue from
the fire the hissing remains of the burning snipes.
Norah attempted to assist her mother; but Clary, lift
ing her up, somewhat after the fashion of an eagle
raising* golden wren with its claw, fairly put her out
of the kitchen. This was the signal for fresh hostilities.
Mrs. Clary stormed and stcmped, and Mr. Clary
persisted In abusing, not only Morris, but Morris'
uncle, Father Donovan, until at last the tarmeer
help-mate swore, ay, and roundly too, by cross
and saint, that before the next sunset, Noralt Clary
should be Norah Donovan. I wish you could have
seen Nory's eve, dancing with joy and exultation,

The Beggar and Banker.
A EFFORT FOIL THE MINT.
'Stand out of my way.' said a rough voice un
der my window, one day as I sat musing over the
bustling scenes below me, at my lodgings.
Your honor will please to recollect,' replied a
sharp but somewhat indignant voice, your honor
will please to recollect that I am a beggar, and have
as much right to the road as yourself.'
And I aul a banker,' was retorted still more
gruffly and angrily.
Amused at this strange ahadoi : . I leaned over
the case, and beheld two citizens in the position
which a pugilist would denominate noticed, their
countenances somewhat menacing, and their per
sons presenting a contrast at once ludicrous and
instructive. The ono was a purse proud, lordly
mannered roan, apparently in silk, and protecting a
caress of nearly the circumference of a hogshead ;
the other a ragged and dirty, but equally impudent
and self-important personage; and from a compar
ison of their countenances, it would have puzzled
the most profound M.D. which of their rotundities
was stored habitually with good victuals or drink.
Upon a close observation, however, of the coun
tenance of the banker, I discovered, almost as soon
as my eye fell upon it, a line bespeaking something
of humor, and awakening curiosity, as he stood
fixed and eyed his antagonist, and this became more
clear and conspicuous when he lowered his' tone
