THE TWO MACBETHS.

OR THE HAY MARKET GEMINI.

        O, Gemini-
        Crimini! 
        Nimini-
        Pimini
  Representatives of the Tartan hero,
  Who wildly tear a passion into rags
  More ragged than the hags
  That round about the cauldron go! 
  Murderers! who murder Shakspeare so,
  That ’stead of murdering sleep, ye do not do it;
  But, vice versa, send the audience to it. 
          And, oh!—­
          But no—­
        Illustrious Mac-
        Beth, or -ready,
        And thou, small quack,
        Of plaudits greedy! 
  Our pen, deserted by the tuneful Muses,
  To write on such a barren theme refuses.

THE ADVANTAGES OF ANIMAL MAGNETISM.

The experiments of M. Delafontaine having again raised an outcry against this noble science, from the apparent absence of any benefit likely to arise from it, beyond converting human beings into pincushions and galvanic dummies.  We, who look deeper into things than the generality of the world, hail it as an inestimable boon to mankind, and proceed at once to answer the numerous enquirers as to the cui bono of this novel soporific.
