A Siumple Stumpbp. The subjoined an

there wo "stump s-jeaklne, ' and Abnei
had been on the platform enlightening the
unterrirled long and loudly. "Fellow oiti
tens, " said he'I now come to a slanderous
report which has been most dastardly circu
lated against me from one end of the oountry
to the other. My enemies, net content with
endeavoring to ruin my political prospects,
have, assassin-like, attempted to blast my
good name by their insidious reports " lie
then stated what the rumor was, and oontin
ued: "1 rejoice, my iellow citizens, to have
it in my power to instantly fasten the iie up
on this malioious and atrocious slander. 1
see among you one of the most estimable
ciusons ot this county, whose olioracter lor
truth and integrity is above question. Squire
Schooler, to whom I allude, is acquainted
with all tbe foots, and I coll upon him to say
whether this rumor is true or false, 1 pause
for a reply." Whereupon Squire Schooler
arose, and in a strong, slow and sonorous
voioe said, "I rather think you did it, Ab
nerl" "You old soonndroll" shouted Abnsr,
why do you interrupt me, while I m discuss

low personalities?'' And be accompanied
this objugatory exolamatinn with such a
surge of gesticulation tbet be stepped buck
beyond the platform, falling backward on a
big dog, amid the bowls of whioh, and the
deafening roars of th " sovereigns," the
meeting was ffeotually broken up.
A Strahok Conceit. The insane often

On of tbe saddest mistakes which good

About 4 o'clock of ths da; we landed in
Louisville, our boat was loosed from her moor
ing. Th late rain hsd considerably swollen
the Ohio, and we teaincd it over the falls
without the lesst difficulty. Darkneta soon
overspieaJ Ike horiaon, without the slightest
opportunity for making the acquaintance of
those poor beings, who have always been the
object of my most tender solicitude. At so
early hour I repaired to my room with the hope
that a little sleep would calm down the various
emotions of the proceeding dsy ; but all my ef
forts to get into the land of dreams, were fruit
less. My life principle hsd got such s bold on
my imagination that it rolled through my brain
like a chariot of Ire, the whole livelong night.
Th first dawn of th morning a light found
me pacing the hurricane deck, endeavoring

flew from the revolving paddle of our neble
boat. Little or nothing of interest trsnsiired,
as we wended our serpentine course dowr the
Valley of the Ohio. Here and there the blos
soms nt the esrly Spring flowers, might be seen
springing through tbe green sward that had
snvelopd ibeir Under sterna, sod shielded them
from tn c.lil! bleat of tn winter, now gone
to the tomb of its predecessor. It wss my
intention to stop soms dsy at Mound City,
where I bad some buaines of importance
enact. Tha Captain promised to lend at that
putt, to let me, with one or two more of the
passenger ashore ; but judge of our urpriee
when rounding the bend Just abore the City,
we discovered the whole thing waa submerged;
and Ui only sign of any tangible thing was
slender pole, supposed to b set wbr tha
mound wss, with a flag of dislr wsving
mournful folds to th northern breeis I Sad
indeed were my feellugs whu I beheld th des
olation of all around, and my one bright hope
of a apleodid realisation from th Mound, waa
all buried beneath the turbid water that rolled
