The author of these sprightly verses is not known. In the " New Hampshire Gazette " they appear, with the following note to the printer: " By inserting this in your next paper, you will oblige one of your country subscribers." We do not know of their being printed elsewhere.
THE PRESENT AGE.
Of all the ages ever known,
The present is the oddest; For all the men are honest grown,
And all the women modest.
Nor lawyers now are fond of fees,
Nor clergy of their dues; No idle people now one sees,
At church no empty pews.
