SON, CAMBRIDGE; AND MESSRS. MUNDAY AND SLATTER, OXFORD.
The King of Clubs.
THE PRESIDENT PROLOGUIZES FROM THE CHAIR.
I love Variety ; no Book
Who speaks one word of Prose to-night. (Members testify astonishment. O'Connor opens his mouth wide-Musgrave shuts his close-Lozell nods with assent— Burton with drowsiness.-Oakley takes out his tablets, and appears to be working hard.) Montgomery. “ I love to hear a clever rhymer rhyming .
In learned measure, eloquent and strong!” Golightly." " I love to hear a faulty timer timing
His borrid cadence, dissonant and wrong!” Montgomery. “Good Poetry's the noblest thing on Earth!” Golightly. “ Bad is a strong Provocative to mirth;
And, when a fool is sentimentalizing,”-
The vast success of Volume I;

Because he isn't' up to Greek.'”
Och! sure it's very clear, oh!
Sed intellectuo fero."
“ Order! order! a Bull, a Bull!”
“ I differ.” Nesbit.

BEEP-STEAKS. · Rowley. “I love a steak !-proudly it sweeps along;
Whether the kitchen broileth it or frieth,
And Punsters tell that oftentimes it crieth,

Of meats multigenous, bak’d, broild, and basted in
I wish that I could eat the food he eat;“,
But stop, Thalia, for you want a whet;
