"io n Willi your business!" dis
dainfully exclaims a broken-nosed ruf
fian. "What's your business irot to do
with it V If you're going to be a Chris
tian, uc one, u It takes you to hell."
"That's my no. Jim." clans in a 'imlM
of the last speaker. "Ef you're going In,
go in square."
"Why don't you go in square, then,
and not stand lalygaggin' around out
hero"" asked a brawny sailor. "I'm
going to the meeting. I've had many
u dance in John's saloon, and I'd like to
see now a prayer meeting will seem in
"John's nil richt." said a briirht-look-
ing young man, that a noliceman inform
ed our reporter was one of tho greatest
thieves in the AVard : "but 1 don't know
about those white-choker fellows he is
bringing among us. They're men of
large families and small salaries, and
just pick up a living somehow; so I'd
auvise you to loolt out lor your pockets

"lou dry tin, my lllly Jam !" retorted
a girl, seeming about eighteen yenrsold,
ion stole my gold locket, that my
mother giv' mo."
l lie word "mother" seemed to unlock
tho long scaled springs of tho girl's
neaii, ; sue tnrow nor apron over nor

whore she earns her bread of shame.
I Ins occurrence threw adamner on the
feelings of the crowd, and not a word
was spoken until a merry youni: vaga
bond sprung in front of an aged negro
porter, who was toiling along with a

THE FATIIEK AND TWO SOMS,
Correspondence of tho Chicago Tribune.
AVasiiinoton, August 28.
If it should over be your lot, walking
in the streets oi Washington, to see an
idiotic faced old man of a singular
parchment ugliness, wearing n Quaker-
brimmed hat ot leit or straw, ins mouth
aiar, his eyes vacant, wrinkles like a
Avithered apple extending across his
face transversely, his sandy hairs frost
smitten a being altogether to whose
physiognomy that ol Horace uroeley is
the bright and morning star conclude
tho portrait of the stranger by writjng
beneath it Frank 1. Blair.
This old man, very nearly as ugly as
now, was brought to this city from
Kentucky by order of Andrew Jackson
who liked tho sheet lightning way in
which ho "lit" upon his political ene
mies. He was received by the whole
Cabinet at dinner, who looked at him
and experienced poignant disappoint
ment. Jackson set him alius left hand,
opposite the suave Aran Burcn, and he
munched through his dinner in a
speechless, verdant way, and transfixed
with the wild egotisniH of old Andrew,
and from that hour his willing worship
per and eulogist.
When ho got away from good society
and lifted his quill it was seen, howev
er, as Mr. .lackson remarked, that ho
was no "smooch." AA'hat Jackson
could swear, Blair could barb and lire
straight to the mark, and for all tlyjt
administration Blair was the daily and
confidential literary .Secretary of tho
President, lie carried his proofs to the
AVhite House every noon, and read them
to Old Hickory, who wiped "out, swore
in sontences with savage gluttony for
adjectives, and a manifest repulsion for
elegancies; but on the heads of Blair
and his partner, Rivers, Jackson poured
moneys and" benefit, till tho one died
rich a little while ago, with one fortune
here, and, it is said, a hundred thousand
gold dollars besides in tho Bank of Eng
land, while the other, past three score
and ten, lives on tho neighborhood of
this city, nndiindsone of his boys a can
didate ior tho ollico of Calhom.

"AVliat do you think of young Frank
Blair?" I said to-day to an old Jack
sonian Democrat, almost as old as Frank
Blair, Sr., himself; "you knew him
"He's a rale grit. Ho was always
fighting at school. Ho believed in the
code, sir : so did the old man stand up
by the code ; they were all on tho code.
