BANKtNG Fon TH1. Bi.AcKs.-We
find the following item in an exchange:
The "Freedimin's Nitiona Bank," an
mnstit.ion organized by a Boston firm
at Sandy Hill, South 'Carolina, to re
ceive and tak,, care of the eaving of the
negro(-s in that region, has closed its
doors finally. Its name was a mere
sham, as it had no connection with the
Government to authorize the assimption
of the title of "Nationial Bank." Its
note.9 were wretched lithographs-much
resembling blacking-box labels, but
printed in gandy colors, which captiva.

freedman who deposited a dollar gleen.

neigiiborhood of Sandy Hill, had not

nature of the financial enterprise in
which they had embarked. He :imme.

subject; but, Clargea & Higginson, the

South as temperence lecturers, and, at

ceitain parties from the North. who are

employ to exchannge their wages for the
beatiful bills of Clargos & Higginson,

Them good Old Days
AS LONdRD ioB BY JOSH BILLINGS
How I do long Aonce in a while) for
them good old days.
Them days when the sun didn't rise
Them days when there was more fun
in 30 cenis than there is now in 7 dollars
and a half.
Them days when a man married 145
pounds bf woman, and less than 9 pounds
(all told) of anything else.
How I do long for them good old
days when education only consisted in
Wat a mkn did well.
Them days when deenns was as atis
tere as hoss rediah, and ministers preach.
ed to men's eouls instead of their pock.
Them days when politics was the ex.
ception, and honesty the rule.
Howl long for them good old days
when lap dogs and wot nurses were not
known, and when brown bread and
baked goose made a good dinner.
Them days when a man who were
not busy was watched, and when wo.
nien spun only that kind of varn that
wna good for the darning of stoo-kings.
How I do long for them gou old days
when now and thwn agal baby %ns
called Jernsha, and a boy war not,spoil.
ed if lie was named Jerrimiah.
All you who have tried the featheis
and fuss of life, who have had the cod.
fish or wealth, without sense, stuck
under your nose, come beneath this tree,
and long for an hour with me, for them
good old days when men were ashamed
