On A Cigar. [heading]

Who can blame the gen'rous leaf,
Balmy antidote to grief?
Who the mild Cigar despise,
In which such hidden virtue lies.

It soothes and aids us when we think,
Gives a zest to wine we drink;
Infuses pleasure sends despair,
Serpentining, into air.

It heightens converse and it warms
The heart, to social pleasure's charms;
Adds to the song; and ev'ry joke
Shines brighter, through a cloud of smoke.

With a Cigar, in pensive mood,
I moralize in solitude;
In its decrease I read my end -
Dread lecture of a dying friend.

Like thee, at first; from earth I came,
Receiv'd a form; was giv'n a name -
After a few short puff, I must,
Moulder like thee to native dust. C. C.

Died. - On Sunday last, at Plant. Nieuw Oostenbeck, Leguan, Leonard Senn Van Basel Esq.
