" Who is your committee, sir V
" Captian Pill Punkers."
" Is lie a man capable of ascertaining for
himself the nualiticatious of a teacher?"
()h yes ! at least I had as lief have
Pili Iunkeri judgement of a niau who
applied for tho school, as any other in the
district; and yet he is the only man in
the whole district, I believe, but what
can read and write."
" Your school committee not able to
read and write ?"
Not a word,ind still he does more
business than any man iu this neighbor
hood. Why you see he keeps a sort of
store, sells to A., P., aud C, and char
ges in a book after the fashion of his
own; aud 1 would as soon trust his book
keeping as anybody's ; though, to be sure
he has got into a juiliblc, hero, about
some charges to a neighbor at the other
end of the town, and they aro having a
court about it to-day, at Punker's store
Header, allow me to usher you a, once
into Captain Pill Punker's store. The
only chair and table iu the room were oc
cupied by the justice ; tho rest of the com
pany sat around on what they could find.
OutliC loft of the jlUicO sat ;the defend
ant whose composed looks and occasional
knowing smile .seemed to indicate eonii-
dence in tho strength of his defence, and
the possession of some secret advantage.
On tho other hand sat Punker the
plaintiff. He was a remarkably stout, hard
ly looking man, and although his features
were extremely rough and swarthv, yet,
he had an open, honest and very in
telligent face. The parties were now
like a lawyer, proceeded at once to the
merits of his case, lie produced and
spread open his account book, and then
went to show his manner of charging,
which was wholly by pictur es, drawing
his debtor at the top of the page with
sonic particulars of his person or calling.
In the present case, the debtor, who was
a cooper, was designed by the rude pic
ture of a man iu the act of hooping a bar
rel, and the article charged, there being but
ono item, was represented by a shaded
circular figure, which tho planintiif said
was intended for a cheese that had been
sold tho defendant some years before.
44 Now Mr Justice." said Punker, 44 now
the article hero charged, the man had.
I will and do swear to it ; for hero it is
in black and white. And 1 having de
manded my pay, and having not only re
fused it but di-nied over buying the article
in question, I havo brought this suit to
secure my ju.-t due. And now I. v. l-di to j to (. .anada, but to old ( anaan, I suppose
see if he will get up heroin coti't and i that Pharaoh and all tho chivalry of old
deny the charge undei oath. If ho will j Kgypt, denounced him as a furious Abo
let him, but the L rd havo mercy on his j lit.'ouist. ( Laughter.) I do not know
soul I" I but they blasphemed their (Jod, who had
"Well, sir, replied tho defendant j

I never bought or had a cheese of you in
44 Under oath of God do you declare it,
do yuu sharply asked Punker.
44 1 do sir," firmly answered the other.
" Well, well ! 1 would not have believ
ed a man iu all tho" town would have dared
to do that."
Hero the jurtice interfered, declaring
the plaintiffs aecoun Look entitled to cred
it, unless the defendant could produce re
Whereupon two ofdcfeiidant's neighbors
testified that he had not only made a
sufficient supply of cheese for his family
but during tho year of the alleged pur
chase, actually sold a considerable quanti
ty of the article.
This evidence, seemed to settle the
question in the mind of the justice, and
he now sojn announced that he felt bound
to give judgement in favor of the defend
ant for his costs.
44 . Judged ami sworn out of the whole
of it as I am a sinner ! Yes, fairly sworn
out of it and saddled with a bill of cost
to boot! Put I can pay it, so reckon it
up Mr. Justice and he will have it all
squared on the spot. And on tho whole,
1 am not suro but a dollar or two is well
spent in finding out a fellow to be a
scoundrel, who has been passing himself off
for an bonc.st man."
"Now, Pill Punker," said the defend
ant, 44 you have I flung out a good deal of
slufT here, aud have bore it all without
getting riled a hair, but now it's all fixed
and settled, I am going just to convince
you that I am not quite the ono as has
sworn to a perjury in this ere business."
" Well, we will see," rejoined Punker.
" Yes, wc will see," replied the defend
ant resolutely; wc will sec if wc can't
make you, eat your own words. Put 1
want lirft to tell you. where you. rais.-ed
it. When you dunned mo Punker, for
thepayor a cheese aud i said I never had
one of you, you went of a little to ijuiok,
you called me a liar before giving me
a chance to say another word. 1 then
thought I would let you take your own
course till you took that name back. If
you had held on a minute, without break
ing out so upon me, I should have told
you all how it was, and you would have
got your pay on the spot; but"
" Pay '." liencly interrupted Punker;
" then you admit that you had the cheese
do you r
44 No, sir jidmit no such thing," quick
ly rejoined the former, 44 for 1 still say I
never had a cheese of you in the world,
but I did have a small grindstone of you
tit the time aad at just the pri';e you
have charged for your chooso and here
is your money, sir. Now, Punker, what
do you say that '!"
44 (jrindstonc cheese chee -grindstone;
1 must think this matter over
agai n . ( I ri n ds t on o eh eos e cheese
grindstone. Ah, I have it ; hut my (Sod
forgive mo for what I have done. It was
a grindstone, but I forgot to make a hole
in the middle for a crank !"
This upshot of the law suit was satis-
factorv to all concerned, and the neighbor
hood Iiad something to talk about the rest
of the season. Wisconsin Journal of JM
ucation. Ancient nd 3Iodcrii ltotishlncr?
Senator Wade, in his great speech on
the 14th, made some capital hits, and
none better than the following, tracing
the similarity between a singular race of
beings that lived iu ancient times, and
the fossil remains of a similar race of peo
ple which we discover in the United
States, in this age of the world. Kvcry
ono will agree with the Senator, however,
that like Indian tribes, they aro fast dis
appearing from the face of the earth.
Says .Mr. Wade :
44 How havo you done it' You have
done it because you liad a general bond of
interest uniting you, tying you together
as if animated by one soul. What was
the interest to me was the interest of an
other. You aro forced all on the same
platform, all acting to one end. You
found the Democracy of tne North divi
ded in various pursuits, laboriug in their
itriuUa Hvoeatiwna, with very httlo time
.1.1- 11 1
to siuuy i nis prooiem oi ponucs; ana you,
have always been able to seduce enough
of us over to joti, to carry your govern
ment along. I know that gentlemen
smile at this; but I am compelled by
truth to state facts here that I wish I
could hide from the world. It is a rot
tenness at the North that you do not
have. Jt is disreputable to us, but I am
compelled to admit it. Your allies, the
doughfaces of the North, in my judge
ment, aro tho most despicable of; men.
Tho modem doughface is not a character
peculiar to the age in which we live, but
you lind traces of him at every period of
the world's history. He is void of pride;
he is void of self respect; he is actuated
by a mean groveling sollishness that wo'd
sell his Maker for-a price. Why, sir,
when old Mosc, under tho immediate in
spiration of God Almighty, enticed a
whole nation of slaves, and ran awav. not
u.-.-i.ted the fugitives from labor to eeapi
,1 .11.1. 1
l nave no uuot at ail mat when sonu
Southern gentlemen of the gospel come
up to preach to the North, they will s;vy.
that tho Almighty acted a very fanatical
part in this business. I am afraid that
they will say so; Ho was aiding and abet
ting in tho escape. Put amid.-t the glo
ries of that great deliverance, even feed
ing upon miracles of the Almighty as they
went along, they were not wanting those
who loved Egypt better than they loved
Egypt better they loved liberty; whoso
souls longed for the flesh pots of Egypt,
and who could turn from tho invisible
glories of the Almighty God, to worship
and Egyptian calf. They wero tho dough
faces of that day. They were national
men ! (Laughter.) They were not ex
actly Northern men with Southern princi
ples but they were Israelites with Egypt
ian principles. (Laughter.)
Again, when the Saviour of the world
went forth on his great mission to pro
claim glad tidings of joy to all the people
of the earth, to break every yoke, and to
preach deliverance to the captive, ho met
with the same class of men iu tho persons
of Judas Iseariot and tho chief priests.
In the days of our own Kcvolution, wheu
Washington and his noble associates were
carrying on that struggle to establish jus
tice, and to secure the blessings of liberty
to themselves and their jostcrity, they
met with the samo class of men in tho ad
mirers of George III and Lord North.
They are all of the same class fake to
the education of their fathers false to
tho great principles which have been in
stilled into them willing to do anything
that will minister to the cupidity of their
masters, let the consequences lc what
they may. It is thn class of men aided
by a close aristocracy at the South, that
has enabled the minority to rule with iron
hand the majority since tho organization
of this government. I have cndcavoicd
to daguerreotype the.-o mui for the bene-
fit of future ages; for I believe that, like
the Indian tribes they are disappearing.
