THE SECRET CONCLAVE.
'flic eighth sederunt of the
Conclave met pursuant to no
tice on the Hth day of the pre
sent moon iu Autocrat Hall, Cnla
thumpia, at tho usual hour; and
General Duality presided.
n Roy. Dr. Drybash addressed tho
chair as follows; "Mr. President
and Gentlemen Considering tho
deplorable proceedings which took
place at our last meeting ; and the
liability, under our present system
of receiving members, to enroll un
worthy persons, I would suggest
that a new mode of enrollment be
adopted. The fast and loose sys
tem hitherto pursued is, to my
mind, very reprehensible; but it is
easily remedied. There should bo
conditions of membership and the
candidates should be made to pledge
themselves to those conditions. It
is always unsafe to admit foreigners
from Europe, or from any of the
British, French, or German colo
nics. These people can no more
assimilate with New Englandors as
Chinamen, and they are infinitely
more intractable. Tho safest way
would be to have our conclave con
sist wholly of New Engtandcrs, and
their descendants and kuown sym
pathisers. Were this plan followed,
what wo would lack in numbers we
could make up in influence, and
collaterals that would bring votes.
The President stated that "the
same idea had occurred to him, and
lie would see that every candidate
for membership is properly pledg
ed." A large and clumsy raw-boned
angular looking man now entered
the hall, and looked around among
the members as if lie had lost some
one and was trying to find nun,
Rev. Whangbuster linally recognized
the stranger as Capt. Ezra Squash
of the whaling bark Bay State, and
introduced him to the Picsideiit.
Capt. Squash stated that he "wur
not eligible to be a member 'kasc lie
had nary a vote in this heathen
couutry, but he knew that a bean
eating organization would make him
welcome and lie take the liberty to
The President explained to the
Cap that the present meeting was
wholly of a political nature ; and al
though he would bo glad to meet
him in a social crowd at any other
time, the present time and place
were unaiiitable for the captain's
"Wall," said Capt. Squash, "I
jest backed my main yard and bore
to for a rest ; but I guess 1 kin
square away agin and no harm
done." The unwieldy bulk of Capt.
Ezra Squash then rolled itself out of
It was now apparent that the
conclave was completely under ec
clesiastical control, and that the fu
ture proceedings would be upon the
lines of the Cross-bones Church and
its annointed clergy who wero very
numerous in 'leverends,' although
they did not all preach.
A tall open-faced man now enter
ed the hall, and stated that he was
from Pbiladelphy, and would join
the conclave upon condition that the
mcmbeis would aid him in a busi
ness he was trying to introduce on
This proposition brought a smile
on the benignant faces of the clergy
and a grin on the "mugs" of the
The President requested the
stranger to state his proposition, but
held out lithe hope of acceptance.
The stranger then slated that his
name was Benjamin Pasteboard,
and that he "was the inventor of a
potato-paring machine calculated to
be of great benelit to the human
race." He then produced a whirl
ing arrangement from his capacious
coat pocket, and described it as fol
lows: "Thee will perceive that the
potato is impaled upon this vertical
wire, and the knife of the machine
whirls around the tuber in such a
way as to peel off the skin and scoop
out the eyes in the quickest and
most perfect manner. The machine
has obtained the sanction of the
Society of Friends in Philadelphy,
and ho hoped lliu members or mis
conclave would help him to intro
duce the invention here."
The President asked Mr. Paste-bo-ird
whether be was n Quaker ;
and, on being answered iu the af
firmative, a consultation was held
and it was resolved that "the com
clave had no need of Quakers, es
pecially those who had no votes."
This resolution being communi
cated to Mr. Pasteboard, that gen
tleman strode majestically to the
door; but halted on the threshold
"Tho potatoes they were small,
They eat them skins and till
Over there, over there."
The Quaker then vanished and
the heavy door closed behind him
with a loud bang.
Rev. A. Wlin ngbuster arose to
remark that "the door-keeper should
examine all persons entering the
hall aa to whether they are voters ;
oiliiTwisc the time of the conclave
would bo wasted iu rejecting unsuit
able applicants for membership.
Ho would move that all non-voters
be refused admittance, and :lmt lliu
door-keeper be instructed accord
ingly. This motion was seconded by Ja
boz Corncohh Esq. and carried.
Dr. Dryhash then moved, and
Rev. Daniel Webster Buckskin sec
onded, that "all members, except
reverends, excel leniies, honorables,
am those beanug military and
..;,iiiift3wkv i" jii.i iiVi
navel titles, hould bo KnQwDk as
This motion was seconded by He
zokiah Stringbcans Esq.
Jeremiah Dusthcap stated that
"before this motion was put frm
tho chair he would like to enter his
protest. Ho is a bootblack by pro
fession, and could not stand tho
obaffln' to which ho would be sub
ject wero ho to receive n handle to
his name. Ho was quito satisfied
with the name his parents gave linn,
and ho wanted no rechristeniug. He
could shine up a pair of boots just
as well without a title as with one,
and he did not want to enroll him
self iu a list of fools who tried to
ape Europeans "
James Clcr.imnpkin was of tho
same opinion as the previous
speaker, lie is a waiter in a res
taurant, and would have "no titles
around his name." He would movo
as an amendment that "the hooking
on of titles to the names of members
bu made optional, as he could
neither respect titles nor those who
William Shovoldirl seconded tho
amendment and said, "Them's my
Dr. Dryhash said that he "had
mistaken the feeling of some of the
members, and would withdraw his
motion with tho leave of the chair."
Leave granted and motion with
drawn. Quickstep Eyestare Esq. stated
that he "was glad the motion had
been withdrawn, as it would havo
made too common tho title which
lawyers claimed by piofessional
right. Merchants had the same
title 1)3 courtesy; but, in their case,
it was diliicuil to draw the line He
never dreamed of addressing a vege
table dealer as Esquire."
A inebsenger entered the hall at
this moment witli the information
that a "vessel had arrived from Sa
moa bringing news that Uho Ameri
can flag had been insulted by the
Germans. Ihe circumstances were
that an American ofllccr had board
ed a German warship to urge a pro
test against German acts of soma
kind. He carried with him au Ame
rican flag as a protection and sign
of his authority ; and a huge Ger
man sailor seized him by the seat of
Ins pants and scruff of the neck and
threw him overboard, throwing the
American tlag after him." This
was terrible iu the eyes of the Cala
Editor Strangeways vowed ven
geance. Long Tom said he "wished ho
had that German."
Jabez Corneobb Esq. said "the
act was against international law
and the comity of nations."
Rev. Whangbuster thought tho
report would "turn out to be false.
It looked to him like a canard, and
before anything was done iu the
matter they should wait for con
firmation." Dr. Dryhash was of the same
opinion, and the 'seat of pants' com
plexion of the story gave it a suspi
cious, if not an untruthful aspect.
The President asked the mes
senger whether the American oflicer
was reported drowned? and was
answered that "both he and the
Hag had been saved by tho Ameri
can boat that carried him thither."

not matter so much about the ofli

the news arrived at Washington,
Editor Strangeways said It was
only a confirmation of his former
opinions that the German nation
should be blown from the face of
The President then asked what
part the British war vessels took in
the matter? And the messenger re
plied that the English crews were
reported to have laughed heartily at
the whole business.
"Took it as a joke, ch?" remark
cd Rev. Dr. Dryhash.
"They aro accessories to the
crime," said Hezekiah Stringbeans
"And must be punished as such,"
said Quickstep Eyostnre Esq.
" 'Ow do you propose to do it?"
said the Captain of the horse ma
rines. "Take Canada," promptly an
swered Long Tom. "And back Ire
land," said Editor Straiigcwsiys.
The Captain of the horse marines
''did not see any harm Iu a laugh."
"No" said Strangeways, "except

The President thought that this
excitement had been carried far
enough. It was very evident the
report was a canard ; and if tho
business of the conclave is to bo
neglected for the consideration of a
foolish rumor, which is likely to
prove unfounded, he would close
Rev. A. Whangbuster said that
"before the meeting closed he wislw
cd to speak briefly upon the pros
pects of the Caluthtunpian Party.
There was no doubt that it was wan
ing in numbers and in popularity.
Two years ago it commanded tho
respect of 95 per cent of the white
population. To-day its success de
pends wholly upon Now Englanders.
It. does not comniaud tho goodwill of
Americans generally, nor any Euro
peans; and I would ask what is the
cause of this decline? Is it because
wo are toe strict, too exclu9ivo,
too forbidding, and too pre
tentious? Is it becftuaa we ere
nurtore, rigid nnd haughty? Is
it became wo arc individually sol
fish, dominant, purse-proud, and
vain ; or is it because the population
of the Whereabout Islands are fond
of change, both social and political?
Whatever may bo tho reasou, the
fact remains that our glorious party
ison the declino; while the Opposition
is gaining strength in both numbers
and iiifluoiico. I have heard some
of our trusted members oven deny
that they had nuy connection with
our party as if they were ashamed
to own us. It is best, Mr. Presi
dent, that we should know how we
stand ; and if a change of base is
necessary let us adopt the alterna
tive." The President, looking at his
watch, said "it was time to close tho
meeting; and it would now bo better
to sing the closing ode." Then
Rev. Whangbuster sang as follows:
Clouds now frown, and the fky looks
The lightnings flash around us;
But to-moriow's sun may break out
As tho day our conclave found us.
