ANOTHER REJƠINDER, BY THE DEAN, IN JACKSON'S NAME. ' THREE days for answer I have waited,
I thought an ace you 'd ne'er have bated,
thy mafter. Blush for ill-spelling, for ill-lines,
And Aly with hurry to ramines ;
proud boaster, I hear with some concern you roar,
And flying think to quit the score 1-By clapping billets on your door
and pofts, Sir.
Thy ruin, Tom, I never meant,
your banishment, But pleas’d to find you do relent

SHERIDAN’S SUBMISSIO N.

I ne'er could make him better, : He rhymes and puns, and puns and rhymes
Just as he did before;
He shymes and puns the more.
The more they frisk and skip :
The more they use the whip.
(Abcast of Irish breed) Will, in a tedious, dirty road,
Outgo the prancing steed.
And lay him fiat before ye,
He'll-ftrut, and cry, Vietcrial
