Song of Grace........................ By the Amphions.

    Lo, the world is rich in blessings!
Thankful all, His praise report;
"Every herb, and each tree yielding"
Seed and fruit, shall be our meat."

Every healthful sense delighting,
Ever changing, ever new.

And it makes the weak man
Strong again."

    But the best is yet to come. Speeches, sentiments, and songs, will succeed the festival Gentlemen one dollar--ladies fifty cents. Mark that. See how these advocates of equal rights stick it on when they have a chance. Gentlemen, one dollar!--ladies fifty cents! But doubtless it will be worth the round dollar to participate in this plum jelly and baked apple jubilee of woman's rights. Vice Creton! Vice la republique! Vice la bagatelle! Gallery tickets one shilling!
