We clip from the Washington ,nlion file
following tribute to the menory of .1ohnt W.
Forney, 1. D., who was violently attiked
oi the 22d tilt., in front of the Whito Ilouse
in Washington, wit I a disease know i as t lie
Johnson "grip." It is proposed to deposit
his rent-ins in (he Smitlsonion Institut,
as at nuost wonder'ul Fpecimten ot a nenpiicAa
s but duckabus of the nineteenth centtry:
TIIE DEA D DUCK-A 'AtJo1).
Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note,
As his corse to the barn-yard we litirried,
Not a soldier discharged a farewell shot.
O'er the grave where poor ducky was bt.
We buried him dark/y. at dead of night,
The sods with the harn-shovel torting,
By the struggling moonbeanm's miity light,
And the lantern dimly burning.
No tseless colin etnclosed his bpreast,
Not a sheet nor a shroud, we wottnd him;
Butt lie lay like a dead duch t akin- hii rest,
With his tail-feathers soutteredj aunttitd
We thought, as we hollowed his narrow bed,
Anld smoothed down Iis poor crippled
What. a lesson'twould be to tlt fools who hIad
To reach unattainable thlings.
Few and sltort, were the prayers we said,
And we spoke not a word of porrow,
For we knew that had he not thu- Deet in.
lie would have made our dinner to-mor
But half of our heavy work was tI rough
When tie clock told the hour for retiring,
And we learned by chanticleer's Occasional
That the sun would soon be rising.
Slowly and sadly we laid him down,
From t he place of It is fal I fresll and gory
We carved not a litte, we raised not a stonle,
To recall our Dead Duck's lost glory.
