TOASTS TOR ALL TIMES.
May the devil never pay visits abroad, or receive com­pany at home I
May Fortune fill the cup when Charity guides the hand
Great men honest, and honest men great. A pot and a pipe, and a good-natured wife, Just to make me feel happy the rest of my life.
Short shoes and long corns to our country's enemies.
Champagne to our real friends, and real pain to our sham friends.
Friendship in marble, animosity in dust.
Envy in an air-pump, without a passage to breathe through.
May every honest man turn out a rogue.
Lenity to the faults of otners, and sense to discover our own.                      .
Health of body, peace of mind, a clean shirt, and a dollar in our pocket.
Here's to Columbia, the hope of the world I Long may her navy, triumphantly sailing, And army still conquer with courage unfailing,
Their thunder forever 'gainst tyrants be hurled!
Here's to the man that raised the goose that gave the quill that made the pen that signed the Declaration of In­dependence !
May our laws guard our liberty, and our liberty our laws. Let the hoary miser toil,
We such sordid views despise ; Give us wine and Beauty's smile, There each glowing rapture lies. Addition to our trade, multiplication to our manufactures subtraction to our taxes, and reduction to useless offices. All Fortune's daughters, except the oldest Mis-Fortune.
