SWELLS OF OCEAN.

CHARLES AUGUSTUS BROWN, of Salem,

Was a youth of twenty-three,

Who had met and loved in secret

Fair Estella Thormansby.

Judge of Charley's bliss and rapture,

When he heard the maid divine

Was to be his shipmate in a

Steamer of the Cunard Line.

Off at last! The steamer's started,

In the distance fades the town;

Up and down, in search of rivals,

Wanders, restless, C. A. Brown.

Happy youth! Of rivals there are

None, as far as he can learn,

Save, perhaps, a man from Harvard,

Bearded, grave, and taciturn.
