I'M A FLIRT—I'M \ FLIRT, Air—"I'm Afloat, I'm Afloat." Urn si flirt, I'm a flirt, hy no promise I'm lied. The biill room's mv home, nnd the Polka',* my pride; 1 trip lightly by in [lie s<uil-b;ndin**j- dance, I win with my smile, and I wound wilh my glance. I heed not the prudes. let, them say what they will, . A flirt I am new, and a flit t I'll be Btill; I ne'er will resign tlie proud sway lhat I hold. O'er talent and riches, tlie great and the bold. I'm a flirt, I'm a flirt. I liave suitors in -shoals. WboYe dying to have me. the poor sighing soul""-; Uow they fret if I frowu, how tbey smile if by chance They can just squeeze my band 'twixt their ow n dance. There's De Spoon of the lilues, with ten thousand a year, And dashing Lord Dwadle the young Fusileer, A Duke or an Earl I eould easily get, And wear on my forehead a proud coronet. I should have my fine carriage for making mv calls; I should give too, my breakfasts, my routs, aud my balls; But no cavaliers nt my feet, then would fall To hand me ray gloves or to put on my shawl. Then away with the thought ofa dull wedded liie. Its cares and its troubles, its slowness and strile; There's nothing on earth but to roe's cheep asdirt, Compared to the pleasure ot being a flirt.

As soon as endowed witb life, all the gods are said to have vied with each oilier in presenting her with gifts. She received beauty and tbe art of pleasing from Venus, the power ot captivating from tbe Graces ; Apollo taught her how j to sing, Mercury instructed ber in eloquence, and Minerva endowed her with wisdom. Hence she was called Pandora from lbe Greek word pan, all, and dorou, gift, intimating she w-s all-gifted. Jupiter finally presented her wilh a box, filled wilh evils, whicb she was desired to give lo the man who married her. She was then couducted by Mercury to Promelbus; lie euspieious of deceit, would not accept the present; but his brother, Epimeteus, less j prudent, married ber. lie having accepted and opened the box, there issued from it a multitude of evils and distempers, which speedily dispersed themselves all over the earth, and have neversince ceased to afflict all mankind. He shut tbe box again in ail baste, but all was gone. Hope alone, which Jupiter bad compassionately inclosed in his unhappy gilt, bad uo time to escape, and consequently remained as the one consolation of wretched mortals. Tbis has given rise to tho expression "Hope lies at the bottom.''

She was dressed in find linen, trimmed all over with point lace, and two rowa o*^ lace were laid fiat on her forehead. She looked ex- authority ; for we could hardly believe lhat auy oi our generals, more especially one with tbe reputa. tion for modesty of Geueral Burnside, could have penned such an order. But sure enough, that report we found to furnish evidence not only of the probability, but of the almost absolute certainty, that the document is an authentic one; in refer, ence tothe operations ofthe army of the Rappahannock, the report contains the following curiou: statement; "Geu.

They are the citizens by ivhose advice the rebellion could have been suppressed at lhe beginning; who when they found the contest opened, supported it in every just manner possible; wbo, ns long its things appeared to be conducted with honor and ability, gave the Administration every assistance in their power; who, during tbe whole campaign, forgot not the entire Constitution. * who because hundreds of thousands of men have fat en by disease and in battle, are indignant at the loss; who, with independent tongues and pens, denounce tht speculation and corruption of tho faction in authority ; who. are inccssanlly at work to have all the principles of the Constitution that have been violated, restored; who, in many instances, would get place if they would change their coats ; who are uot animated with tbe spirit of exterminating the South, for the sake ol the negro ; who. by (heir fearless patriotism keep abolition tyrnn v in abeyance; and who, as thus far tho war has been a tremendous failure, are now honestly convinced that Constitutional peaca alone can restore the Union, These are the Peace Democrats.
