A NOVEL.

Breathes there a man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,

“ This is my own, my native land!"
Whose heart has ne'er within him burned,
As home his footsteps he hath turned,
From wandering on a foreign strand?

CHAPTER I.

Ye've heard this while how I've been licket,
And by fell death was nearly nicket;
Grim loon! he gat me by the fecket,

And sair me sheuk;
But by gude luck I lap a wicket,

And turned a neuk.'

Discovering a letter of unusual size open, curiosity prompted Mactaggart to unfold it, but what was his surprise to find its contents an invoice of prohibited goods. VOL. I.
