· INTRODUCTION.

THERE baving of late appeared in our horizon, a meteoric phenome. non—an ignis fatuus, or Jack O' LANTERN, which has been the means of decoying many an unwary traveller from his right path, and which may, perhaps, delude many more, we deem it expedient to counteract its direful influence, by exposing the nature and origin of this false, delusive light.

l'his meteor, vulgarly known by the above-mentioned name, “ Jack o’ Lantern,” is usually seen hovering over bogs, marshes, low places, and sometimes dunghills, and is nothing more than inflammable vapour, produced from the putrefaction and decomposition of those substances with which swamps and bogs abound; and being very easily ignited, causes that murky, flickering, and uncertain light, which never fails to lead those who are simple enough to follow it, into the same quagmires from which itself emanated, and into which it must soon sink again :

"

A wandering fire,
Compact of unctuous vapour, which the night
Condenses, and the cold environs round,
Kindled through agitation to a flame
(Which oft they say some evil spirit attends),
Hovering and blazing with delusive light,
Misleads th' amazed night-wanderer from his way
Through bogs and mire."
