. iow these funny 1'yginies, as I told you bc

din, the grant Antaeus prcbouted a very craud
. , ,p, , - . , , " u . .
spectacle. ,rheie: he used to stand, a perfect
mountain of a man
with Ins great countenance
The I'yjrmies loved to talk with Antsrus ; aud
; lll'y tim s a dav, ( no nranrther of them would
i .:.! up I, is head, mu r-hout tlirough the hollow
of Eh ti3Wl, "ilulioo, brother Anticus ! How
aro jou,. my good fellow?" And when the
" small, distant squeak of their voices reached his
j i'".r, ttw giant woul l muko answer, "Pretty well,
brother Pygmy, I thank you," in a thunderous
vo.ir, that would have shaken down the walls of
ilieir f-trongefct temple, only that it came from so
it was a happy circumstance that Antaeus
-wks the Pygmy people's friend; for there was
nrro strfugib in hU littlo finger' than in ten
luiiii .ns of tneh bodies -as theirs. If he had
. lctn as ill-natured to them as ho was to every
vh-xty else, he might have beaten down their big
gijteity atone kick, and hardly have known
ihat ho did it. Wi(h tho tornado of his breath,
,,hc coul l havo stripped tlio roofa from a hundred
dwelling, and sent thousands of tho inhabitants
whiiling through the air. IIo might havo set
H ii1uiene foot upon a multitude, andwhcii he
took it up again there would have been a pitiful
i irht, to be sure, lint, being tho son of Mother
K.irlb, as . I hey likewise were, the. giant, gave
tin hi his brotherly kindness, and loved them
: with a, big lovo as if was possible to feel for
matures so, very small. And, on their parts,
tlio Pygmiea loved Anticus with as much aft'ec
tini as their tiny hearts could hold, He was
i slhyi ready 16 do them "any good offices that
1 :y ill his power : as, for example, when they
wauled a breczf (o turn their windmills, the
giant would sot all tho sails a-going, with the
mei-e natural respiration of his lungs. When
the sun was too h , he often sat hiin'self down,
aad let his shadr.'.i i';ill over tho kingdom, from
cue frontier to the other; and as for matters in
f. a.Tal, he was wise enough to let them alone,
aud leave tho Pygmic3 to in mage tlicir own af
1'iirs which, niter nl!, is about Iho best thing
that great paoplo t an do for little ones. '''
In short, at I s.iid before, Anticus loved the I
Pygmies, and-the Pygmies loved Antaeus.' Thei
f.-iiv n me ucing as long as nis ooay was largo,
while the litetiine of a Pygmy was but a span,
i lus tricndly intercourse had been ' going on for
innumofsblo gmerations and ages. It was writ
ten aLout iu the Pygmy histories, and talked
..a..oi;t in thur ancient tndition. , Thflinctetven

us standins among the Pygmies, like the snire
of tho tallest cathedral that ever was built, while

The Pygmies had but but ono thing to trouble
them in the world. , They wero constantly at war
with tho Cranes, and had always been so, ever
since tho loug-fived giant coufd remcmbar. rroui

in which sometimes tho little men would gain the

gmies to ride upon ; so that, I
on squirrel-back, or rabbit-
perhaps, cot upon hedge
hogs, whose prickly quills would bo very terrible
to the cucmy. ' However this might be, and
whatever creatures tho Pygmies, rode upon, I do
not doubt that they made a formidable appear
ance, armed with sword and spear, aud bow and
arrow, blowing their tiny trumpet, and shouting
their little war-cry. They never failed to ex
hort one another to fight bravely, and recollect
Whtjii the twd armies loined baltlo the Cranes
would rush forward, ' flapping their wings and
stretching out their necks, aud would, perhaps
snatch up some of the Pygmies crosewiso in their
beaks.- Whenever this happened, it was truly
an awful spectacle to see those little men of might
kickiug aud sprawling in tho air, and at last dis
appearing down the crane's long, crooked throat,
swallowed up alive. A hero, you know, must
hold himself in readiness for any kind of fate;
and doubtless tho glory of tho thing was a con
solation to him even in tlio crane's gizzard. If
Antaeus observed that the battlo was goiug hard
against his littlo allies, ho generally stopped
laughing, and ran, with mile-long strides, to their
assistance, flourishing his club aloft and shouting
at the cranes, who quacked and croaked, and re
treated as fast as they could. Then the Pygmy
army would march homeward iu triumph, attri
buting tho victory entirely to their own valor,
and to tho warlikeskilland strategy of whomsoe
ver happened to be captain general; and for a te
dious while afterwards, nothing would be heard
of but graud processions, and publio banquets,
and brilliant illuminations, and shows of wax
work, witli likouo-scs of tha distinguished offi
cers, us small as Jife. .
In tho above-described warfare, if a Pygmy
chanced to pluck out n crane's tail feather, it
proved a very great feather in his cap. Onco or
twice, if you will believe mc, a little mau was
utauc cliitf'-rulcr of the nation for no other merit
iu the world than bringing home such a feather.

whose ideas of political grnndcur are the depression

The reader must not be put on a wrong track.

Genius of lluinbug, canst thou farther guc? Can
the pretense of respect for Eiiualitv yoliticnl,
social, porsonal, be more complete thnn s'nch a dis
play, by such a personage, of tlio means by which

nncct When will you be too intelligent to be the
menials of small lawyers who abuse yoy by thoir
professions of Equality, and at tlio first opportunity
betray vou to shamo and dishonor ? What is there
in tins man Pierce, that he should dare to degrade
deroRity ot his liveries? What is the meaning
his Jesuitical appeals to tho people, -when ho sanc
tions the objective vileness which determines servi
tude servitude not of the black, but oftho white
his equals as men and citizens? No. Thon by
what right dare ho to put them on other mon as
good as himself 7 -
: What was tho meaning of Secretary Marcy's cir
cular to tho Legations and Consuls, inviting them
to leave off barbarian trappings uud riso to the
dignity of men? If their liveries are degrading
and infamous, equally bo are they on the bocks
persons in their employ. Liveries for tho Demo
crats who help a Democratic 1'rosident to discharge
his Democratic duties; and livo the Democratic life
Proper for tho head magistrate of this Republic
augh upon such Democracy ! Let Secretary Marey
at once isseo a new .circular for home use.
We nhall bo told, perhaps, that this is a hard
doctrine, and that sinco it is customary for great
families and rich men in tho largo citios of the
Republic to dress their servants in livery, wo must
not complaitt if tho President adopts tho same
blessed privilege. AVo deny this entirely. We
muintuin that the President is a representative mnn,
and has no right to make a fool of himself in this
way, because other people do it. Besides, ho pro
fesses i democracy, the superiority of wan ovor his
accidents, whereas the magnates of our best society
profess the contrary. And wo put it to the good
senso of tho country, to tho honest men who till
their lands and-follow their trades, remote from the
vices and falsehoods of cities, aud bring up thoir
children by tho labor of thoir own hands, whether
they regard it as n fitting thing that a republican
president should array a number of his fcflow-eiti-7.ens
in menial guise aud display them iu public
creatures of a lower easie ? Is it fitting that he
should ape tho ofl'cte flummery of aristocratic dis
tinctions in so base a manner? Wo think not.
Wo hold that Democracy is something real and
sacred, which should pervade lifo and transform
institutions, and not a mere set of phrases to figure
in inaugural addresses and replies to electioneering

More than twenty vears have paused since that
great champion of the slave first threw down the
gauntlet, saving, ''I triVbc heard: I trH not he
lent." Bnt the cause in vVKicli he then enlisted has
encountered is no insignificant one. So tho battle
has progressed, the foes of Freedom havo come out
ot their hiding places ot church and state, multiple

Much has, indeed, been accomplished. Often
has the enemy been driven from his outposts, and
many of his munitions of defeiico been taken and
destroyed; whilo great numbers have been induced
to desert their former positions, and eomo over and

in any preceeding year. Sympathy with the slave
has vastly deepened and widened among the people
of all classes. The various agencies that have
been in operation tho last year, have unlocked the
door of many a heart and unloosed tho strings of
many a purso, anu wo may reasonably export a
largely increased attendance at our Bazaar. We
must, then, bo abb to present a display of the
beautiful and tho useful, such as will make full

It is well told and boars internal evidence of beintr
a blear statement of facts: There is no attempt

that the Interest in the perusal is deep and unabat

and exciting power in thoir delineation. The sun
