“My arm it is my country's right,

“Come, from New battle's* ancient spires, My heart is in my truelove's bower;

Bauld Lothian, with your knights and squires, Gayly for love and fame to fight

And match the mettle of your sires, Befits the gallant Troubadour."

Carle, now the king's come ! And while he march'd with helm on head

“ You're welcome hame, my Montague !t And harp in hand, the descant rung,

Bring in your hand the young Buccleugh ; As faithful to his favourite maid,

I'm missing some that I may rue, The minstrel burden still he sung:

Carle, now the king's come! “My arm it is my country's right, My heart is in my lady's bower;

“ Come, Haddington, the kind and gay, Resolved for love and fame to fight,

You've graced my causeway mony a day; I come, a gallant Troubadour.”

I'll weep the cause if you should stay, E'en when the battle-roar was deep,

Carle, now the king's come ! With chauntless heart he hew'd his way « Come, premier duke, and carry doun, 'Mid splintering lance and falchion-sweep, Frae yonder craigs his ancient croun; And still was heard his warrior-lay:

It's had a lang sleep and a soun'“My life it is my country's right,

But, Carle, now the king's come!
My heart is in my lady's bower;
For love to die, for fame to fight,

“ Come, Athole, from the hill and wood, Becomes the valiant Troubadour."

Bring down your clansmen, like a cloud ;

Come, Morton, show the Douglas blood, -
Alas! upon the bloody field
He fell beneath the foeman's glaive,

Carle, now the king's come!
But still, reclining on his shield,

“ Come, Tweeddale, true as sword to sheath ; Expiring sung th’exulting stave :

Come, Hopetoun, fear'd on fields of death; “My life it is my country's right,

Come, Clerk, and give your bugle breath ;
My heart is in my lady's bower ;

Carle, now the king's come!
For love and fame to fall in fight,
Becomes the valiant Troubadour."

“Come, Wemyss, who modest merit aids;
Come, Roseberry, from Dalmeny shades;
Breadalbane, bring your belted plaids ;

Carle, now the king's come!
CARLE, NOW THE KING'S COME.*

“ Come, stately Niddrie,|| auld and true, BEING NEW WORDS TO AN AULD SPRING.

Girt with the sword that Minden knew; The news has flown frae mouth to mouth;

We have ower few such lairds as youThe north for ance has bang'd the south ;

Carle, now the king's come !
The de'il a Scotsman's die of drouth,

King Arthur's grown a common crier,
Carle, now the king's come.

He's heard in Fife and far Cantire,

· Fie, lads, behold my crest of fire !
Carle, now the king's come!

Carle, now the king's come !
Carle, now the king's come!
Thou shalt dance and I will sing, “ Saint Abb roars out,' I see him pass

Carle, now the king's come ! Between Tantallon and the Bass!'-
Auld England held him lang and fast;

Calton,** get on your keeking-glass, And Ireland had a joyfu' cast;

Carle, now the king's come !"
But Scotland's turn has come at last

The carline stopp'd ; and sure I am,
Carle, now the king's come !

For very glee had ta'en a dwam,
Auld Reikie, in her rokela gray,

But Oman help'd her to a dram.Thought never to have seen the day ;

Cogie, now the king's come!
He's been a weary time away

Cogie, now the king's come!
But, Carle, now the king's come!

Cogie, now the king's come!
She's skirling frae the Castle Hill,

I'se be four and ye's be toom,
The carline's voice is grown sae shrill,

Cogie, now the king's come !
Ye'll hear her at the Canon Mill,
Carle, now the king's come!

M'CULLOCH'S COMMERCIAL DICTIONARY.

THOMAS WARDLE,
PUBLISHER AND BOOKSELLER,

Has in preparation and will Publish, “A Dictionary, Practical, Theoretical and Historical, of Commerce and Commercial Navigation. By J. R. M'Culloch, Esq.”

The Work will be edited by Professor HENRY VETHAKE, of the University of Pennsylvania ; who will carefully revise every Article of the Work, with a view to correct any errors of fact which may have inadvertently crept into the English copy. The Editor also, while he will avoid the expression of his own theoretical opinions, leaving those of the Author to be presented to the reader, on his (the Author's) responsibility, will use all diligence to supply any information that may be wanting, and that may be of especial interest to the American Merchant. Additions of moment will, for example, be made to the articles Banks, Canals, Coal, CotTon, Iron, the WOOLLEN MANUFACTURE, RAILROADS, Silk, &c.

The reputation of “M'Culloch's Commercial Dictionary" is so well established, as to require no authorities to be adduced here in its behalf; and it may be merely observed that the Publisher hopes, by reprinting the entire Contents of the English Copy, and accompanying them by the Additions to be made by the American Editor, to put forth a work of a character to be regarded as indispensable to every member of the mercantile community in the United States, as well as to a considerable portion of our educated men in general.

CONDITIONS. The Work will be published in about Ten Parts, at One Dollar and Twenty-five cents per Part; and will form, when complete, Two HANDSOME Royal Octavo Vo. LUMES, printed in the best style, and on paper of the best quality.

The First Part will be published on the 1st of March 1839, and the succeeding Parts at intervals of about two months.
