THE " ANTIS" OF PLATE COVE--BY MARK WALKERCome, all ye good people, pay 'tention,
And listen a while unto me,
Concerning a band of vile traitors
That lives at the head of our Bay;
Their names for some time I'll not mention,
I may apprehend them bye an' bye;
Their leader he was a blind piper,
By the Parson's game?cock lost an eye.
Hurrah for the "Antis" of Plate Cove,
The day that the Poll Booth was opened
Then out came that chap of the Brennan's
The next was the great Patagonian,
Oh, boys, if you saw the fair Jenny,
And now to conclude this short ditty,
