(OF THZ PRAiniE BELLE.)
BY J. H.
Wal], no ! I can't tell ?har ho live?,
Bccau.-o he don't live, you see ;
Least ways, he's got out of the habit
Of livin like you and ino.
Whar have you been for the last three year
That yon bavn't heard folks tell
How Jimmy Bludso parsed in bia checks,
The night of the Prairie Bello !
He weren't no sara t-them engineers
Is all pretty inuch alike
One wife in Natchex-under-the-HQl
And another one here, in Pike.
A keerless man in his talk was Jim,
And an awkward man in a row
But ne never flunked, and ho never lied,
I reckon he never knowed how.
And this was all the religion he had
To treat his engine well ;
Never be passed on the river ;
To mind tho Pilot's boll;
And if ever the Prairie Be? took fire
A thousand time? be swore,
He'd hold her nozzle agin thc bank
Till the last soul got ashore.
AU boats has their day on tho Mississippi,
And her day'como'at last
The Movastar was a better boat,
But tho Belle she (couldn't be passed.
And, so she como tearin' along that night
The oMeat craft on tho line,
With, a niggor squat on her safety valve
And her furnaee crammed, rosin and pine,
The firo bust out as she cleared the bar,
And burnt a bole in the night,
And quick a? a flash she turned, and made
For that willer bin.* on the right
Tirure was tunning and carting, bat Jim yelled
Over all tho infernal roar,
"TH hold her nozzle agin tho bank
Till tho last galoot's ashore.'
Through the hot, black breath of the burnin'
Jim Bludso's voice was heard, .
And they all had trust in bis cussedness,
And vowed he would keep bis word
And sara's you're born, they all got off
Afore the smokestacks fell
And Bludso's ghost went up alone
In the smoko of the Prairie Bello.
Ile were n't no saint-but at judgment
I'd run my chance with Jim,
Longside of some pious gentlemen
Tba:: wouldn't shook bands with him.
Ile seen his duty, a dead sure thing
And went for it thar and tben :
And Christ ain't a goin' to beo too hard
On a mon that died for men.

" ANY MORE WOULD GO FLIPPITY
FLOPPITY."-A country girl once went
to the city to pay a visit to one of her
old and best friends ; this friend was
married to a rich city merchant, and
was a leader of fashion. In city eti
quette, of course, the visitor was ver
dant, and made numerous mistakes.
Her friend wished to initiate her fully
Mito thu "mysteries," and, as they were
going to a large ball, gave her the fol
lowing instructions, viz: "Eat only
one small cake and one saucer of ice
cream, and when your attendant presses
you to take more, answer that yon have
masticated a sufficiency, and more would
besuperfluity." Things went onsmooth
ly until her attendant asked hei? to
partake of more refreshment*, wh.?u, to
the horror of her friend and amusement
of the company, she answered, in a
loud voice : " I have evaporated in

A surgeon had occasion, lately,
to prescribe a couple of pills for an
Irishman, which were sent home in a

visiting his patient afterward, the doc

that the desired effect had not Jieen
produced, and asked Pat's better-half j
if she had really given him the medi

replied ; " but may be, yer Honor, the

The Carolina Troubles.
Senator Robertson, of South Oaroli:
writes from his seat in the Senate a 1
ter addressed to Gens. Kershaw, Butl
and McGowen, and Col.^Rion, in whi
he states his opinion to'be that " i
true road to peace in South Carolina
by peaceful means," and urges th<
gentlemen to "put themselves in co
munication with the leading citizens
the respective counties of the State,
as to organize and enlist the moi
power of the State in favor of pea
and good order, and obedience to ?
The gentlemen thus appealed to 1
Senator Eobertson haye always insisto
that the peace, good order and quiet
the State could only be preserved ar
maintained by the force of public se:
timent. Hence, they deprecated ar
denounced the arming of the neg]
militia by Governor Scott, which mea
ure, if we mistake not, was approve
and voted for by Senator Robertsoi
while he was a member, of the. Sout
Carolina Legislature. Robertson's pai
ty defied public sentiment, treated wit
contempt the opinion of leading cit
zens, and caused a war of races in th
State by using the ignorant and ai
bauched negroes, and egging them o
to acts of lawlessness and outrage. Th
"leading citizens" to whom Senate
Robertson now plaintively applies fo
aid in protecting the vile instrument
af Radical vengeance upon unofrendiu,
white citizens, were not consulted whei
the negro militia was organized, am
Winchester rifles placed in thf't hand
to shoot and butcher unoffending whit?
citizens. Now, however, when th<
whites, having patiently borne unhearc

Scott's trained bands of marauders, anc

Drotect their infamous creatures, " pub'
ic sentiment" is appealed to, and
'leading citizens" implored to lend

vhich was ruthlessly violated by Scott

We know something of the character
md feelings of our South Carolina
riends-the "leading citizens" now
tppealed to. We undertake to say for
or tkem, that if Scott will disband his
a?amuflin militia, recall the arms
?laced in their hands, give the people

A FUNNY MISTAKE.-A capital joke
jays the "New Jersey Patriot," and
ill the more palatable because it is
;rue, and can be vcuohed, took place a
few Sundays sincj at one of the promi
nent Fourth Street churches.
It seems that a worthy deacon had
been very industrious in selling a new
church book, costing seventy-five cents.
At the service in question the minister,
just before dismissing tlie congregation,
arose and said :
" All you who have children to bap
tize will please present themselves
The deacon, by thc way is a little
deaf, and having an eye to selling books,
and supposing his pastor was alluding
to them, jumped up and shouted,
" All you who haven't any can get as
many as you want by calling on me at
seventy-five cents each."
The preacher looked cross-eyed at
the brothers, the brothers looked at the
clergyman, the audience pinched the
audience in the side, the bubble grew
larger, until it burst into a loud guffaw.
Ladies colored up, crimsoned,and thank
ed the Lord for the low price, of peo
pling the earth. There was no benedic
tion that evening worth speaking of.
NORTH AND SOUTH.-An incompletely
reconstructed Southerner moved to Ver
mont lately, and soon afterwards his
family was increased by the addition of
a native Vermonter. His eldest son, a
boy of four years, was at first delighted
with his little brother, but after a week
began to tire of the crying, and got a
little jealous from fancied neglect.
One day he climbed up into his father's
lap and asked him.
"Papa, which do you like best, me or
The father, thinking to please the
little prattler, answered that he liked
him best. After a serious thought th?
shrewd youth "said,
"Pa, I know why you like me thc
" Why ?" asked the father.
"It'sbecause I'm a southern man
and baby is a Yankee. .
AN EXCELLENT GUIDEBOARD.-" Ca

asked a traveler of a boy whom he rn?
on the road. " Yes sir," said the bo
" Do you see that ar barn down there'
" Yes," said he. " Go to that. Abot
three hundred yards beyond the bal
j you will find a lane. Take that laa '
I and follow along about a mile andi

cates ; and you take the left hand road,
and keep that until you get into a
thicket, and when you get there, why

"Then I'll be darned if you hain't lost!"
? Tfee Beginning of the End."
The ^Missionary Mccord- the only
journal in the State edited by a colored
man-denounces the leaders of the
dominant party in this State : It says
" If. the signs of the times indicate
anything, it points clearly to the neces
sity ora re-organization of the Repub
lican party of this State. The depart
ure from the principles, laid down in
the beginning of its organization has
left it |?horn of its effectiveness for
that great good which it designed
when it came into power. The gi
gantic frauds and speculations which
has disgraced the party and tarnished
its honor, the profligacy with which the
leaders^iave spent the public funds,
and bartered away the people's inter
ests, calls loudly for re-organization
and a purgation of the party. This de
mand seems to be made in the North
by the leading Republican clubs, who
are calling for re-organization of the ,,
party in vieV of the induction of so \ \
many unworthy persons into it. The
defrandings in custom houses, the rail
road speculations which involve the
State's (credit, the various schemes of | J
public plunder which have brought
odium upon the Republican party and
shaken the confidence of the people in
its integrity, and question its effective
ness for future good, all these point to
the necessity of change. The class of
men who are now the leaders in the
politics are a class who are so unscrupu
lous that, no man who values his repu
tation is willing to ally himself with
such characters. When a set of drunken
rowdies can rule the roost and put up
and eV;i their particular friends, ma
nipulating conventions and stuffing
ballotrboxes, then there is no honor in
being associated with that class of men.
" Reformation is now demanded in
the Republican ranks in such manner
as will warrant the' security to fhe peo
ple as their interests demand, or there
will be an organization of a party in
opposition to the corruptionists who
now rule the politics of our State.
Such a state of affairs cannot last al
ways. The time is coming when intel
ligence will not submit to be ruled by
ignorance and imbecility; when the
revelers in public spoils and their ill
gotten gains, the result of their treache
ry to the people, will meet their doom.
The time is not distant when this re
**^fiUir,3?^Qn will begin in earnest, and
every"honest mari Trill ha ?onnd rt/rrayed
Dn the side of good government and a
purification in politics."
" BETTER HAMMER STONES IN THE
PENITENTIARY. ' '-The Charleston Daily
Republican, of Friday last, contains a
three column editorial on the subject of
the existing state of affairs in South
Carolina. The article is calm and de
liberate, and makes many admissions
fairly aud squarely-in regard to the
character of the men of its party and
their official acts, which, as open con
fessions are said to be, in this instance
especially wc trust will prove to be,
"good for the soul." Among these is
the declaration, that " there are men
in office who had better hammer stones
in the penitentiary," We must say
that the Republican has, for some time,
been telling the " plain truth" in regard
to matters, and in this way is doing
sturdy service in the direction of reform.
A BANK NOTE.-The Cincinnati En
quirer tells an incident in which the
fate Wesley Smead, the well-known
banker and another well-known and
eccentric citizen, whose credit did n.pt
stand very high in bank parlors, were
ac'.ors.' Mr.. ii', called on Mr. Smead
foi a loan. " Certainly, Mr. R., I shall
accommodate you with pleasure." " But,
Mr. Smead, I shall want it for a long
tine." " So much the better, Mr. R."
"And I want $10,000 for ten years."
"Oould't be better, Mr. R., that will
just answer," said Smead. " I shall be
moderate with you, and charge you
bit 10 per cent." " That is generous,"
r.sponcfed R. " I expected io ba charged
ahigher rate." " lite rule with bank

The New York Herald, which always
fllows rather than leads public senti
ent, says :
" After such a four years' war as that
f our late Southern rebellion, can it be
expected that the people subdued can
puietly adapt themselves in five years,
;en years or twenty years, to a revolution
(which has torn up their political and so
cial system by the roots ? Can it be ex
pected that the Southern whites, ac
customed to rule under the Constitution
as mnsters, and to look upo^theii.blaeks
fis an inferior race, and aa slaves by
divine authority-can it be supposed
that because these whites have been
Bubdued in war, they will surrender
their convictions, prejudices* and prin
ciples, as conditions of peace ? No. In
spite of your emancipation docreesand
civil rights bills, and constitutional
amendments establishing negro civil and
political equality, the Southern whites
do not believe in this equality, and they
submit to it as the French submit to
the loss of their Rhine territories
from necessity-and with the hope of
satisfaction hereafter. How is th's diffi
culty to be reached by A^ts of Congress,
especially when all these Southern
States have been restore^ a,8 completely
to their local rights ir? tho Union as
New York and New Jersey? What
more can Congress do with the KuKlux
cut-throats of North Carolina than with
t.he roughs of New York city, now that
Southern reconstruction is finished ?"

is sixteen miles. In addition, it takes
some seven millions of pamphlets and
^welve millions of circulars to meet the
public demand for this kind of infor- j
m?tion. Our annual issue of pamphlets
alone,- laid solid upon each other, make
a pile eight and one quarter miles high.
The circulars measured endwise reach
1894 miles, and these assertions are mat
ters of mathematical certainty. What
ever the estimation in which these publi
cations may be held here, they reach
the firesides of millions upon millions of
men who do treasure and regard them,
and who in their trials do heed the
counsel they bring.
Not only over these great Western
continents but throughout that other
land so little known to you, under our
feet, the Australian continent, there are
few villages as large as this which are
not familiar with the name you h ?ve
chosen, and employing tha remedies
that bear it.
Thus, gentlemen, have I striven in
my humble sphere to render some ser
vice to my fellow men, and to deserve
??nong the afflicted and unfortunate
wine regard for the name which your
kind partiality hangs on these walls
irouna me. We may look forward
with confident hope to the renown you
will gather under it, and the prosperity,
which there is reason to trust the future |
aas in store for* you. Situated as you
ire here on one of the main arteries-1
between the west and east, between the
great industries of the plough and the
spindle you must aid in their exchanges
md thrive' with them. Soon these
channels will be opened wide and
pouring through your precincts streams
}f men and merchandise that will need
Cour furtherance and must contribute
to your growth.
Located here in the centre of New
England to what dearer spot can you
;urn that men inhabit? Beginning life
-ich with the honors of your mother
;o wn, whose influence through her schoo1!
ind her scholars is of itself an inheri
;ance, with such examples as Lawrence,
Boutwell, Hoar, what may you not hope
br of usefulness in the councils of the
?tate and nation ?
Contrast our condition with that of j
;he Eui opean nations, alternately torn
md improviahed. with wars, credit_it as
*ou may to the better education oT*TE?"'j
)eople, and you will realize the value ]
)f the example old mother Groton has
iet you, so worthy of your ambition to
bllow. Build schools for your children
ind find talent to teach them, then
ntelligence and integrity in prosperous
md happy homes will be your sure
Associated as you have made me with

Gentlemen, I have detained you too
