ADVERTISEMENT.

I Trust Lord BYRON will excuse me for having made somewhat free with the singular Motto to his book. It is, I will play at Bowls with the Sun and the Moon.”-Old Song !

Ą "certain Family” had been spoken of, in the Quarterly Review, as “ringing changes on NATURE for two " thousand years !" The Critic who professed such ignorance and disdain of external nature, was doubtless sincere!

By a somewhat ludicrous coincidence, it happens that the" armsof this family,spoken of with such contempt, are, literally, a sun and moon," a Sun, or, and Moon, ARGENT, secundùm ARTEM.

It is, therefore, with this Sun and Moon in Heraldry that Lord BYRON, I have no doubt, plays atBowls!" Not with the Sun and Moon in Nature!!

In return, I have only ventured to take, as an inscription to my shield, his Lordship's motto, with a trifling alteration :

[ocr errors]

He that plays at“ BOWLs" (with the “ Sun and Moon')
must expect

RUBBERS ;"
