CD have some fun.
Our winder looked out on the root of
the ell, and about ten. o'clock-a- couple of
torn cats got a rarin' and chargin! round
? on it and carryin' on like sin.
/.There H'a>; four inches of snow on the
roof, and it ?vas froze so that there iVas a
.right'smart crust'of ice on it, and the
moon- was shin hi' bright,-and-we conldsee
them cats like dayUgbt- First they stand

all of a sudden the grey cat he'd snatch a

spin around like a button ou a> barn d???r.
1 Jut the yaller cat was game, an! he'd
come and cliiu-h, and- the way cuey d

\Vellr Jim, he got disgusted with the

no notion of doiti* it,Jikely, but we ever?
lastingly dogged, hiir aurf bully nigged

got:intb;the"suow to cool. And they- was |
langhin' and talkin' HaVIv ; but bless you, j
they didu t know nothing 'bout tiie pa no

Well, Jim. he went a.sneakin" and sneak
in'right np to the enrnb- of the roof, tiil
lie was in a foot and ? half ot em, and
then, all"of a sudden he made a <rral? for

was hark from the tombs. Them girls?
well, they left, you know. They see he

AlUwas done in a second; it was jii>t one
little war whoop and a whisk of their

A Good Joke ox Grant.?"Mack" tells
the following:- This is as good a place as
any to tell wjuit .l conceive to bo a good
5oke at Grant's expense perpetrated by so
grave a person as Attorney Oeneial Stan
bury. My authority is unquestionable,, as
in tact," it always is. Soon after (Grant's
accession to the cabinet he brought up a
. proposition, in cabinet meeting, in regard
to the abolition of whipping, as a punish
ment for crime, in the South. The whip?
ping post, he said, was a relic of barbarism,
and it ought be abolished: All the nahiuet
officers agreed on that point, but they
differed as.to the propriety of interfering
against the penal laws of a Stale. Mich
punishment was being gradually abolished
anyhow, and would soon.disappear entire?
ly. But Grant believed-' that something
ought to be done by. the army to preveiit
its coiitiiiiDiiice. It-was so barbarous that i
it on?rht to be tolerated a iiay longer, i
..Stanbery glanced r'rwfce ge. eral, and said
ma rpiiet way: "I believe you still buck
and gag men and tie them up by the thumbs
in the armv, within a mile of this house
don't you?' ^ ' i
I^Yes,1' the general saidj.-'that had tobe '
done some times." -. J
" Well, it seems to me," replied Statibery,
"that it's c little wotue to buck and*?r:i?r a
jnan for p-ettin^ tipsy than to whip him
Jor larceny. If yondiad to choose, would
you rather be whipped or giiggedY''
The general1 ad to acknowledge thrtf as
between tiie two. he'd *afce the whipping,
and he postponed fulher remarks on the
barbarism of the whipping post to some

It becomes a question whether the po?
litical and social revolution whic ? Radi?
calism is now attempting is to be allowed
to tak-e- a literary turn ami'subvert our
stau.lard dictionaries. It appears to be
aiming at the authority of the Lex-ieo
gra pliers, and to threaten, what all New
England has until now been proud of, the
fume and the ascendancy of learned
Noah Wchsler. We call a horse a horse,
a man a man. the whites Caucasians, tin
blacks Negroes Turning to Webster's
dictionary, we find.the following :
"N-tono?a black man : especially one
??of a race of black or very dark persons,
-who inhabit the greater part of Africa,
??and ?redistinguished by crisped or curly
-hair, flat noses, high check bones, und
'?thick, protruding lips."
This is-a definition.ot a New England
Lexicographer, made before the Hecon
struct ton- Bill was passed giving suffrage
to the ho?r??es. Has that act changed
? the meaning of the word ?
I There was a very grea? man of Eng
J |and. who abhorred the slave trade, ami

j was the learned Dr. Samuel;Johnson, the

negro servant named Francis Barber, to
whom he leM the bulk of his property,

The Oldest Man in America..
The Detroit Post gives the following ac?
count of a man who lives in that city, aged
114 years :
in a low cabin at the.upper end of a
narrow alley, branching oft' from Fourth
street east,'between Hastings and An?
tonie street*, there dwells a poor negro,
known among his k'indred'as "Old Father
Robinson." It.is customary to apply the
appellation "old " to those who have pass?
ed their sixtieth year, but in case of Rob?
inson the adjective requires an additional
one to qualify it. for being now in his 114
year, he is not only very old, but is, doubt?
less, best entitled to" tlie oft repeated
phrase, -? the oldest inhabitant." Nor is
his-remarkable longevity the sole feature
in this aged negro. Unlike .many, Iiis fac?
ulties havo been retained unimpaired 1?
Up to this week his vision was undimmed
and his hearing unusually acute, but du?
ring the last few day-s he nas faded- rapid?
ly until in his own expressive language,
'* the clock is almost run down."
Robinson was born in August, 1753, on
the plantation of Col. Du Chielle, in East
Maryland.. Through the war of the Rev?
olution, Robinson followed the fortunes of
his master, serving him in the capacity of
body guard. It was interesting to sit and
listen to this old man a few months ago,
befbie the film of death had obscured, his
mental vision, and hear him tell ot the ex?
ploits of the Revolutionary soldiers, and
describe the terrible battle scenes through
which he had passed. A saber cut on the
top of his head'and the loss of a torch* n
gerarc the mementoes of his valor. With
especial pleasure he would relate how the
British army Mil-rendered at Yorktown,'
and would depict the scene when the proud
Lord Cornwallis-delivered up his sword to
In the battle of New Orleans, fought on
January 8, 1815, when General Jackson
overthrew the British host under Packen
ham, Robinson also participated in the
same capacity as in the Revolutionary
war. A cent ury is a long period to look
back upon, yet Robinson could describe
the events nt his youth with clearness and
vigor, which always rendered them inter?
esting to- his auditors.. In his humble
cabin.many of our respectable and wealthy
eitizens have frequently assembled to min?
ister to-his-feeble wants, in return for
which he would repent the sto?-y of his
life, and relate incidents of the several
crises through which the nation has passed
from its struggling infancy to its present
As tlie reward of his faithful services,
Robinson- was manumitted some forty
years-ago. He has been married several
times-, but his children and his wives were
separated from him: His present*wife,
with whom he has-been living over twen?
ty years, is fifty-nine years old', lie being
nearly double her age.
When over eighty years of age he was
still a-robust" man, six feet in height, and
quite erect. Such is the result of a tem?
perate and moral life. At an early
period he became connected with the
Wesleyan "Methodists,- of which Church
he is still a member. Christian men, white
and" black, frequently stand beside his
conch, aod the impression left upon them
all is that Robinson has built his hope on
a sure foundation.
One hundred and fourteen years !' Few |
would wish to live so long. Life is sweet, j
and men will cling to it with blind and
struggling tenacity, but the ^majority j
would lie willing to "fall asleep," before
a century had passed over their heads.
No longer is there left anything to'bind
us.to earth, and the soul then naturally
desires to return to the God who gave it.
Congress and the Suprcms Court.
The attempt which has been marie by a
majority iu the House of Representatives
to prevent a decision' by the Supreme
Court against the constitutionality of the
Reconstruction Acts, has been condemned
throughout the eotmtn. A large number
of papers in the Republican connection
have denounced it, and even the most
Radical organs of the party i1a\e done lit?
tle more than feebly to apologize lor it.
It must not be- supposed, however, that
this result has bad any salutary effect
upon the minds of those who originated
the scheme. The new measure which has
since been prepared by Thad. Stephens
(published by us yesterday,) is not pre?
sented as a substitute with any deference
to the prevalent popular condemnation of
the former project, for i^avows-j.in express
terms, the object for- which the first bill
was covertly, contrived. Mr. Stevens and
some wf his Radical coadjutors are sharp
enough-to sec that the original proposi?
tion must fall by irs own weights An un?
constitutional law would have no effect in
securing another of the same character
from judicial condemnation.. The new
measure, it will be seen, forbids the ap?
peal to the Supreme. Court of any ca-e
arising under the illegal action of Con?
gress in the establishment of a military
despotism in a part of the United States.
This is both a confession that the acts
referred to are unconstitutional, and the
avowal of a determination to en force them
at all hazards. Hut no matter how trying
such desperate measures may be, they can.
only be met fairly at the polls, and the
people must possess their souls in patience
until the remedy is in their hands. The
lesson will not be without its uses. When
we portrayed the character of that Radi?
calism now throwing off all disguise-some
of our readers thought that the picture
was overdrawn. They can now sec its
deformity for themselves,, and arc not
likely to be enchanted with the revelation.
The Conservative portion ot the dominant
party are reaping the bitter fruit of their
own sowing, and'we trust that they will
tie-wiser for all the time to come.?Journal
Our Future Hope.
When we speak of a restoration of all
our rights under the Constitution, except
slavery, some of our people smile, and
think we arc over-sanguine. It is some
consolation to know that we are not by
any means alone. Read- what the Hon.
Mr. Brooks of New York said a few days
ago in a speech delivered by him in the
V. S. House of Representatives :
"We intend to undo what has been
done by this Congress} and' we shall soon?
er or later, have the power within the
walls of the House to undo- it all. These
proceedings in Ohio and New Jersey are
but the beginning of the revolution
lias already made its appearance else
where; aud prerogatives, and powers
which the majority in this House is now
assuming in the most revolutionary man?
ner we intend to make us>e of to undo all
these revolutionary and- violent- proceed?
ings. So the honorable gentleman from
Massachusetts might as well make up his
mind to see the beginning of this great
reactionary movement. We do not intend
to deprive the negroes of the South of
their liberty. We intend to allow them a
five-fifths representation, not a three-fifths
one, which the negroes in the North are
having. But we do not intend to allow,
so far as we can help it, the people of the
North to be brought into negro co-part
nership in government on the floor of this
House, or to be ruled by black majorities,
by rotteuborough negro constituencies in
We do not intend to be ruled by any
such government as that, and all tiie pro?
cesses of legislation by which that has
been reached; or is to be reached.?
Through State Legislatures, as- in Ohio;
through State action, as i? New Jersey;
through 50,000 popular majority in my
own State, to be increased next year to
100,000. If this House goes on with those
proceedings, we intend to undo them all.
I repeat, that everything which has been
done is to be undone. The voice of the
people is no longer heard in whispers, but
ih-tlie loud roar of the whirlwind, coming
from ail parts of the country; and it will
sooner or later unseat a large majority of
those who-now constitute the majority on
this floor, putting in their places the De?
mocracy of the country. If t he statistics
of elections are examined even now, it
will be found that a large majority of
members on this side of the House" hold
their seats here and vote here on these
bills who no longer represent their con?
stituents, but are acting in utter defiance
of the people who sent them here."
