JEzekiel Philppt was born in America,
somewhere near the head-quarters of . ihe

of nineteen, he had 'got his growth.' and

was gonera ly admitted by tx who knew

lime Zeke and his load arrived in Busting,
where tho 'sass' was disposed of to go d
advantage, and with seventy five dollars in
his pocket, our hero began to look around
to see the 'sights.' '
'HpI-Io?' exclaimed Zeko, as he slopped
one morning before a blazing placard, whidi
adorned one of the brick walls in Flag Alley.
'WhnUn inrnaiionN that?' A Golden Lad

Zeke went on to decipher tho rending
benpath, and gradually obtained the intelli
gence that, on the Black Bay, there was to
be a pole twenty feet high, on the top of
which the proprietor would plnce a prize of
two hundred dollars, to be teiained bv any
one who could obtain it. Chances three

way to the spot, where the people had al

with a red nose and pimpled chin, who oc

'You can have a chance for three dol
'Zactly. Wal, noow; there's yer three
dollars, andjiere goes for the hull lot.'
Zeke divested himself of his coat, rolled
up his shirt sleeves, and giving a powerful
leap, he grasped the pole about ten feet frcm
the ground. A single second, riot longer,
he staid there, and then slid back upon terra
firma. Zeke looked upon his hands, and
then down uptfn his striped irowsers. Then
he looked at his hands again, and raising
horn to his nose, when a deep, long smell,
seemed 10 set his doubts and queries at rust

Zeke 10 hissonses, and conv inccd him that
he had been sold. But ere he could find
Itis tongue again', an old salt, with about
'three sheet in the wind,' paid for his chance
and essayed to climb the pole. The sailor
hugged and tugged, got half way up, and
then slid. The crowd laughed again, bul
this time their atlention was- turned from
Zeke to the now aspirant, and after remain
ing a moment in a sort of brown study, our
hero qnietly slipped away, remaiking to the
red-nosed man, thut he 'was going to get
throe dollars more, and then he'd be dnnged
if hj didn't try it again.'
In an hour Zeke was again upon the

the red -nosed man.

'Notion' but my feet,' returned Zeke as
he planted thirteen inches of flesh and bones
into the lap .of the querist. . ,
Zeke put up his three dollars, and, mi
nus his coat and shoes, he grasped the pole.
Slowly, yet' steadily ho crept up from. ihe
ground, . lie hugged liko a bloodsucker 10
the greased pole, and by degrees' he neared
the top. His hand was within a few feet of
the bog of dollars, and he stopped to get

slid 10 the earth with two hundred dollars.

Zeke left the crowd ill wonder, and mndo
tho best of Itis way to the stable. He shut
the door and and pulled up his trowseps, and
untied from each knee one half of the sturl-
toothed leather of his old horsocard.

and so exacily expressive of our own ideas
of the personage in question, that we rrtuit'
perforce adopt the child as our, own, tlothi
him, and "set him up" !
In Western society are tube found inert

as old wine is not put into. new bottles, so'
are western manners always cheerful, buoy
ant and exhilernnt. Brother Jonathan of
the West is a person of great vanity, bul of
little mock dignity. He is aspiring, thor
ough, active and practical. He has not yet
come to doze, like the Englishman, over
beer and corn-laws after dinner, nor like ihu
German, over musty Lexicons and a meer
schaum, nor to kick up his heels with the
volatile Frenchman, when hU soul feels
merry. Yet we defy the world 10' show a

Ho is in this a truer type of the nation'.
He steps longer und higher, nnd thinks fast

spirit is free, like the wild wind which
sweeps over his own magnificent woods and
prairies, and his thoughts are grand, as of ,
one who looks on glorious landscapes, cheer
ing rivers, waving forests, limpid lakes and -gorgeous
Yei, in all this his discrimination of hu
man nature, and in the practical affairs of
life, is greater than that of eastern men.-
He cau excel all others in the aptness and
cordialness of his address and manners, and
where are those who can beat him at a bar
gain? We are proud 10 believe that ur.tlor

more characterized by Intelligence, than the
