WEEL MAY THE KEEL ROW.

WAIT FOR THE WAGON.
The two fortunate things in this renowned but familiar bit of jargon, are the melody and the name of Phillis. Phillis suggests all that is sweet-scented in wayside blooming, and the wagon bumps along through the music like a hay-cart over a corduroy road.
The music was composed by E. Bishop Buckley, who was born in England about 1810. He came to the United States, and organized Buckley's Minstrels in 1843, of which he was the most attractive feature. He died in Quincv, Mass., in 1867.
