Philosopher, poet, the learned, the sage,
Never declines a call from me;
And all, of every rank and age.
Admit me into their coteri.
I visit the lions of every where,
If human, or brute, and can testify
To what they do, to what they wear,
To wonders none ever beheld but I!
And now, reviewing the things I’ve done,
Forgetting my name, my rank and birth,
I begin to think I am number ONE,
Of the great and manifold things of earth.
I’ve still much more, I yet might tell,
Which modesty bids me here withhold;
For fear with my travels I seem to swell,
Or grow, for an ATOM OF DUST, too bold!

=FIRESIDE FAIRIES; OR, CHRISTMAS AT AUNT ELSIE’S.=
Beautifully illustrated, with Original Designs. 1 vol. 12mo. 75 cts., gilt ed. $1.

The Minute Fairies. I

Beam. The Wonderful Watch. The Red and White Rose Trees. The Diamond
Fountain. The Magical Key.
Though this is a small book, it is, mechanically, exceedingly beautiful, being illustrated with spirited woodcuts from Original Designs. But that is its least merit. It is one of the most entertaining, and decidedly one of the best juveniles that have issued from the prolific press of this city. We speak advisedly. It is long since we found time to read through a juvenile book, so near Christmas, when the name of this class of volumes is legion; but this charmed us so much that we were unwilling to lay it down after once commencing it. The first story,—“The Two Voices, or the Shadow and the Shadowless,”—is a sweet thing, as is also the one entitled, “The Diamond Fountain.” Indeed, the whole number, and there are ten, will be read with avidity. Their moral is as pure as their style is enchanting.—Com. Adv.
