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.

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 And shortly tlie Adepts, alert now and frisky, Each goose of a limilar burthen delivcr'd! Jhe bets are withdrawn, now an Amateur said, " Not-so !"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.

" The memoirs of Lord Byron, written by himself," says Morning Paper, "are, we believe, lost to the world" for ever-This posthumous record of tbe deceased nobleman had been deposited, as our readers may have informed themselves, in tbe keeping of Mr. Thomas Moore, and designed as a legacy for his benefit. This gentleman, with the consent and at the desire of l^ord Byron, had long ago sold ll;e manuscript to Mr. Muriny, for, we have been toJd, the large sum of 2,0001.- Since the death of Lord Byron, it occurred to the sensitive aad honourable mind of Mr. Moore, that, by possibility, although the noble author himself had givt-n full authority for a disclosure of the document, some of iiis family might he wounded or shocked by it. He appointed, therefore, a time for meeting a near connexion of the noble lord (not lady Byroa), and after a deliberate and joint perusal of tlie woik, finding that this lady apprehended firom it much pain to the minds of many persons still living, though no sort of impuution on her brother's memory, Mr. Moore, with a spirit and generosity which the better part of mankind will be at no loss lo appreciate, placed the manuscript in the lady's bauds, and permitted ber to burn it in his presence ! This sacrifice of seif-intcrest to lofty feeling was made on Wednesday, aod the next morning the 2,0001. was repaid to Wr. Murray by Lord Byron's self-destituted legatee. " The last words of that nobleman, before the delirium which .seized his powerful mind within three days of bis death, were-" I wish it to be known, ihat my last thoughts were giren to my viift, my thild, and nxy sister." Coiners.-In consequence of information received, Mr. H. Ad that he haii' tiv^f^'tieular, ^inguished himself bv loyal, decided, aMEepniraaaOits ooa-It is not yet known how this scene Ml jfernfftated, but did not produce, in the first instance, all the ellbct which parently calculated to produce, it may be couiidered as led in its principal iuteoded remits. THE EX-EMPEROR YTURBRIDE. The following parllculars are perfectly accurate, which we copy frorn a Morning Paper: - " Every vessel which has come to England from Mexico, for the last tour months, brought pressing invitations lo General Yturhride to return to that country, which, since his abdication, has been diotracted with different fuctums, contending' about the species of Government that ought to he estahlishej there. Tbe prof inces were all divided in their opiuioni, but in all of theiu the name of Yturbride has beea invoked as the only individual capable of reconciling them. It is wdl known that .Mexico owes her declaration of independence to Vturbride'j valour, prudence, and pairioiisui ; heruject before me, uninfluenced by any other ambition than the glory of efliecting the happiuess of my countrymen, and of discharging those obligations which 1 owe to the fand of my birth-obligations which have received additional force from the event of her inde|Kndence. When I abdicated the crown of Mexico, I did so with pleasure, and my sentimeats remain unchanged. " If I succeed in realizing my plan to the extent which I desire, Mexico will soon present a government consolidated, and a people aetmg upon one opinion, and cu opentiuf in ih� same object. ITiey will all rucognize those burdens which, if the present Government continued, wonld fall only upon a few ; and the mining and commercial transactions of the country will assume an energy and a finnnea�.,o�'which tbey ara-now deprived. ,i " 1 have no doubt that the English nation, which knows bow to think, will earily infer from thiS'Stalement the protmlde po-lititical situation uf Mexico; ;
