Jefferson Davis' Life Preserver.
We have often haard crinoline extolled
a nne Hie preserver by water, and pro
bably had "Ophelia" beea acqiiainted with " ' '
advantage, she would never have met
with so dreary free in the neighborhood
tha willows that grew around the brook. ,
However mat may be, Jefferson Davis haa
proved the inutility of crinoline, unaided, ' '
a means of -escape by land. It was bis
boots that did for Mr. Davis, so that it
might almost be said, that if it had not
been for his feet, he could have managed
get awar. ' Bat than it must be remem- " "
bared that he had to improvise the whola
matter. .He hd no time, like Thomas, tha .
pirate of the Chesapeake, to manufacture
himself into a Frenchwoman, aid ba
stowed away ia the bureau drawer. Thar'I
least, he might have had time to com
pose bis counten ance, to conceal hia hoou
and sasume a lady-like depo tment. As it
we must bencetorth deny crinoline all
advanUges as a land life preserver, and
cordially eoneratulate Mr. Davis' boots. '
