Love in a Cottage.
Ob, can 70a live oa cottage rolls,
And cresses from Ure brook ?
Will kisses, dear one, serve for s&use,
Or snell we miss tbe cook ?
Wilt never sigh' my gentle girl,
To fetch our humble coals ?
Bat when we're rery short of cash,
Wilt live on cottage rolls ?
Oh ! eau yon sup on turnip tops,
Nor sigh for higher state ?
When that within our cottage vralls
May chanco to be our fate ?
never dream, thou tonder one.
Of balls and draper's shops ?
Wilt thoa a cheerful smile put on,
And Bap on turnip tops t
THE LADY'S REPLY.
Yes. I will live on cottage rolls,
With love, and joy, and thee ;*
My hoirt will seek no other bliss,
Than thy own bride to bo; '
For well we know, that all we broathe,
For joy must pay some tulls
So I with thee, my only love,
Wilt eat oar cottage rolls.
Oh, yes ! I'll sup on turnip tops,
A -.i duresses from the spring ;
And from onr cot to gandy seenes
My heart will ne'er take wing.
No balls nor routs, will tempt me thon,
Nor fancy drapers' shops ;
But all on lovo and sighs we'll liv?,
And smile on turnip tops.
The Chattanooga Gazette is after the
redoubtable Bill" with a " sharp stick,"
in regard to some allusions made in his
late letter on the Stats of .the country.
Thc article begins as follows : -
The latest aspirant in the arena of
comic (?) literature has written a letter
published in the Nashville Republican of
Sunday, in which he indulges in consider
able growling at gome things which do not
suit him in the reconstruction of the coun
try. Perhaps bc lias a right to do it, but
we submit, Bill, that your attempts at
"harmonizing" are not likely to succeed,
while you are indulging in such terms as
calling the Union men of the South "to
ries" and " slink hearted, fellows," and
the Union men of the North, " Black Re
publican pups." Because you could not
kill off u your enemies" as fast as they
were imported, is no reason why you
should keep up an ill feeling which true
men are striving to smooth down. Do
you expect to better the matter by the
use of such language as this !"
The following is the reply to the same,
published in the Rome Courier of the 9th
BILL ARP TO THE EDITOR OF THE CHATTA
Gentle Sur : I dont think you tote fair.
I havent expressed my l&sserated feelins
in publik but twice since the war. J
dident live in Chattanbogy, and I dident
ha vu no Gozett. For about three months
you bullied us in yaar paper to your en
tire satisfaction. Until Mr. Johnson sor
ter took up for us, you never sent a sheet
to Rome that dident hurt our feelins and
boro into our hearts like a cotton gimlet.
You copied from Yankee papers the
meanest of their slander, and it seemed
to be perfectly congenial with your senti
Well, sur, we bore it like an Injun.
We bore it silently and proud. We look
ed at our desolated land, our lonesome
chimneys, our graveyards, Where you

pits: where you broke to fragments I he
iron railing, and took the very tombstone*
to put in your fortifications. We read
your exaltations of Northern bravery and
Southern t reaso 1, and we skomed you
from the bottom of our hearts. Now
when of late an humble individual makes
bold to burst his biler and express his
sentiments in two breef letters, you get up
like a saiiktified preacher and read him a
publik lekture about karmonizin. Gen
tie sur it dont bekum you. Wh<wi Ive in
sulted you about 2000 times we will be
' even. But I dont intend to insult you at
all. If you are an honest man and a gen
erous conquerer, I aint after you. When
you make sa effort to convince Mr. Har
per's Weekly and the black republjkins
that our people, from General Lee and
Mr. Davis down to the high privates, are
just as good, and brave, and honorable as
they are, VII harmonize with you.
But gentle Sur, havent you spred your
self too fur from home ? What have you
been doin about harmonizin your own
people ? Our little burnt city ts fast fiiin.

A Certain attache of the Treasury De
partment iu Washington, who is well
known as an inveterate toper, on being
asked by a jocular friend w,hat he did for
a living, replied : " I suck a bottle a part
of tho time, and tho United States Treas
ury the rest,"
There are at present residing in Dun
street, St. Heliers, iirtho Island of Jersey,
and opposite to each other, Abel, a baker,
and Cain, a grocer. Recently, Abel mar
ried Cain's daughter, and Mr. Adam, an
engraver, gaye the bride away.
A Good story is told of a railroad ac
cident on the New London railroad, which
had rather a ludicrous ending. A half
intoxicated Irishman was sitting on thc
rail, when the engine of the train from
Norwich struck him under thc haunches
and tossed him down on embankment.
The train was stopped and turned back
to find the dead body. Paddy was found
alive, however, only somcwbic bruised,
and taken to Norwich Here the con
ductor kindly offered i send the man to
his home, a few miles away, in a hack,
but Paddy insisted upon his ability to
walk, and refused to bo sent home in a
" herridge." The conductor pressed the
matter, when the Milesian, who hncl stood
the butting of the cow-catcher so well,
bristled up with :
*Go away wid yer owld kerridge. Til
go home be moself-an' if I've done any
damage to yer ould ingine, bedud I'll pay
for it on the spot.
At Atlanta, Georgia, recently, an el
derly colored woman of thc true Southern
type thus addressed me : " Can you tell
me, Sab, whar the Freedman's Bureau
Co. is ?" 1 answered in the affirmative,
?md aa I was going to the same place told
her to accompany me. On our arrival
she inquired of the officer in charge " if
this was thexFreedman's Bureau -Co. ?"
He said "Yes," and asked, " What can I
dp for jou ?" She said : " Well, I want
a'burcau : none of your common pine
oucs. I want a mahogany bureau, with
a looking-glass." She could not be per
suaded but that this was the legitimate
business of tho office-to furnish bureaus
to freedmen-but was finally satisfied by
an assurance that from the first lot re
ceived a mahogany bureau w ith a look
ing-glass would bo reserved for her.
