'T ZiATH OXYGOOD OLD m
At last the speckled hen has gone
That hen of hens the best,
She died without a sigh or groan
While in her downy nest.
Through Summer's heat and Winter's snow
For ten long years she lay
At noon and eve,-she laid an egg,
Bnt none the Sabbath day.
She had a nest behind the door
All neatly lined with hay,.
Her back was brown and sprinkled o'er
With spots inclined to grey.
Though fourteen years, of age almost
She still looked young and bale,
And like Job's turkey she could boast
One feather in her tail.
The neighbor's fowls did all agree
She was a good old soul;
Sometimes she roosted in a tree
And sometimes on a pole.
Whene'er the rain came pelting down
. And thunderdreadful roar,
She hid herself in Johnny's hat
*Until the storm was o'er.
She lived a plain and honest life,
No higher wished to rise
She flew at neighbor Sampson's wife
And scratched out both her eyes.
She never denied the barn yard beau
His face to look upon,
And loved but one whosc long shrill crow
Was heard at early daw1I
An aged cock who oft had told
His descent with a sigh
From one that crow'd when he of old
His master did deny.
When poor old speckled closed her eye
He jumped the fence and cried;
He bid the poultry al good bye
And then laid down and died.
]ind reader now we'll drop a tear
To Johnny's speckled hen;
It is too true we ne'er shall look
Upon her like again.
THE TOPERS' STRAj IGE.
Three ragged, wretched to rs stood shiver

deeply interesti:ig question-how to obtain the
next glass of grog. After much miserable mut

impracticable suggestions, one of them said:

merons customers and the public generally
to their extensive assortment of -
STOVES, GRATES, RANGES,
and a cnmplete variety of everything pertaining to
a FIRST CLASS House Furnishing Store.
T a e 3.
Our assertment in this department is all that the
most fastidious can desire. We have nearly every
style of COOK, OFFICE and PARLOR STOVES
kept by any other house in the City, and many de
sirable patterns that are to be found exclusively at
C r r a t Os.
Of these Goods, we have some thirty different
patterns, all bought within the last sixty days and
from the latest designs. We think we hazard
nothing in saying that we can offe-r a MUCH
GIEATER VARIETY in this line than all other
dealers in the city combined.
Having tested nearly all the difierent stales of
Ranges extant, we have for two years past sold
MOrrs' PATENT 1NViNCIBLE RANGE exclu
sively, believing them to be the very best article
offered. We have sold some twenty of these
Ranges in Augusta and vicinity, and they have
never'failed to give pierfect satisfation. We will
sell to any customer with a full guarantee that
these Ranges are perfect in their operation in
HOUSE FURNISHING GOODS.
. In this department enumeration is out of the
question. Our assortment Is,. as. usual complete,
id no effort will be spared. on our part to retain
for our house the position it has oce'ipied for five
years past. It is.well knowr that'we keep MORE
ThAN DOUBLE the- stock and variety of any
house in the city, and ours'is, in fact, TPEE
P L A C E to.purelzase House Furnishing Goods.
The increase of our business in this department
has entirely exceeded ouir expectations. Our ef
forts to establish a FIRST CL ASS ITOUSE-FUR
NISiIING STORE have been crowned with sue
ess by an appreciatina public, and our motto is
-Upward and onward.'
We' have in store an unusually heavy stock of
Tin Plate, Sheet Iron, Sheet Copper, iron Wire,
Block Tin, Pig and Bar Lead. Also, a large stoek
of Japianned Ware, Pressed Covers and Plates of
every dlescription, Bueket Ears, Rivets, Tinners'
Tonfe and aahinecs, &c., which we offer to the
