had occasion to call upon a customer
wrho we shall call'John Smith-net ie
immortal John Smith Jr., who writes
for the newspapers but in all pr obability,
a relation of the great o iginal whose
portrait hangs upon a peg against the
cabin wall. Being, as he thought in the
neighborhood, not kr'ovinog precisely
the wheareabout of the aforesaid John
Smith, he accosted a -copperas-striped
specimen of the old 'No'rth Carolina
State, who was rather listlessly engaged
in front of a cabin, hewing out an axle
trea for an ox-car t, from a pine-sapling.
Tra-veller.-Good morning sir; will
you have the goodness to direct ie to
John Smith's ?
N. C.-Certainly sir; if there is 9ny
thing in this world I do know, it is the
way to John Smith's. Why, John
Smith and me came out together from
North Carolina.- We cut zout that new
road leading across that branch and over

N. C.-To besure I will. As I was

Why, sir, John Smith and me married
sisters; and has got the smartest wife in

Traveller.-Nu doubt of it; but I
want to see him, and have nothing to

Will you direct me ?
N.C.-Of course I will, as I said
before; if there is any thing in the world
I do know, it is tie way to John Smith's.
But as I was observing, his wife spins
ier six cuts a day, besides attending to

ill I know or care, but that has noding

her husband-vill you tell me wlwc he

speaking of his boy J in-he can pick
out his hundred weight of cotton in a

Traveller.-Zounds, nian ! what have
I to do wthh J im-or his cotton, or his

or i% t her e not, such a man as John
Smith living in this section, and if y'ou

is such a man as John Sniih living~ in

the wverid I do kniow, it is thc way to his

but cut out a new road leaiding across
