ATTERSON'S ICE PAILS.-JOHN PATTEKSOx' Furnishing Ironmonger and Ice Pail M nufacturer to Ilij Majesty, has constructed a New Ice Pail on a philosophica principle, by which any temperature reouired (not lower than zuro) may be procured, and maintained tor a considerable time. It \i equally operative with or without ice, as by means of Freezing Powder, which may be had witli the Pail, a temperature 30 degrees below the freezing point can be Immediately obtained, ice creams or water ices can be made, and all the luxuries and comforts of the ice-house secured, without trouble or attention, at a very trifling expense, in every season, or in any climate. Patterson's Ice I'ails and Cream Freezers are manufactured in handsome and simple forms, of various sizes, aod at moderate prices. They may be seen in constant operation at liis house, �o. 41, New Bridge-street, Blackfriars, the second house from Ludgate-hill. Patterson's Spare Bed Warmer, by which beds tlmt are only occasionally slept in may be kept in a constantly well aired and wholesome state, may also beliad as ;ibove. THE TEST OF TASTE;    or, THE   SMUGGMNG  GEESE. Two vessels at Leith lately came into port; And that no indulgence "of Taste should be lacking. Of �uwua/ and mental, the gross and tine sort. One ship brought fat gecie, and the other Jet Blacking. .\ cover these geese, deeu mana'uvre to try. Ingenious enough, as you II hear bye and bye. The cargo of geese, ready truss'd to your mind. And Warren's fine Jtt'to his Agent's consign'd. Created a bet> which short time was to tell, The geese or the blacking which quickest would tell. The Custom-bouse Boatmen the geese when they saw, Dcclor'd Uiey were fowls of surpassing eclat; So large too,ttmt one they now cbote to inspect it, Sans ceremoiiie, began to dissect it ; And scarce was the goose longitud'ually sever'd, When >^ielded hor body a bottle of tchiskey .' And shortly tlie Adepts, alert now and frisky, Each goose of a limilar burthen delivcr'd! Jhe bets are withdrawn, now an Amateur said, " Not-so !" cried the one on the Jet who had laid ; The Jet, Fersus Whiskey and Geei.e, we still hold, " The bet how decided till Time shall unfold." The other bark bearing no contraband trade, The Jet to its Agent was freely convey'd ; And shortly exhausted, so great in demand, By all of high fashion in Scotland's fair land. ~"      I'ine Taate thus prevail'd, for the smuggling geese fail'd, >ybile few were the buyers the liquor even backing. And no Amateur will now dare to ensure Success on a bet against Warren's Jet Slacking !
