The Carpet Bagger's Lament.
I've traveled this country nil over,
Ami now to another must go,
Wlicrc the darkies arc easier swindled,
And less of my lying do know.
I came from the cold frosty region,
The land .of the iee and the snow;
I came with carpet-bag eniply,
Hut now 'tis quite full, as yon know.
At home 1 was ragged and dirty,
And left when the son jjot low,
lint soon made arise in this country,
Whin 1 got in the l'rccdman's 1 Sur can.
I 16U1 how I shouldered liiy musket,
And fought lor the poor old negro;
How 1 hat? d the seeesh and relic's,
And told 'em to hate'ein al.-o.
I swore lliciii at night by dark lanterns,
In the I ( ague wc call loyal, you know;
And made them believe if they h fl i.',
Straight down to the devil they'd go.
I promised that land we wonld give'ehi
Of acres quite forty or more.
With :i tu nie fat and ready to tend it;
'that caught the loo' darkey, he sure.
i promised to give (hum all bifiee,
And make tin in my equals also;
1 made them think I was :iu angel,
Ami this earth would he heaven helow.
We/jot every ofliec we wanted,
Ami threw the poor darkiesa hone;
I Wendthed and we stole without fearing.
For Grant he would let us alone.
That "mournful fact" speech of old Oreeley
Struck the first heavy blow;
Now the niggClF, con foiled 'ein. want office?
Then where: hall we carpet-bags go?
I see the more trouble is coining,
The nude and the land I can't show;
So like many a swindler before me,

free to determine for themselves who

other hand it is acknowledged that, the
Federal power is the only reliance,
and that without its succor existence
would be impossible. Even worse
iliiui this. Having exhausted pleas
and .supplications, threat is now
thrown out. A > the President has not
incontinently yielded to importunities,
they arc withdrawn, save only as a
preface to the intimation of violence.
The entreaty is now coupled with an
alternative which whilom, in the

ror. They earnestly beg that justice
mny be speedily extended to them, us
the lawful governments, that they
mny not be driven to the uso of the
rifle and cannon in defense of their
rights; , Now, what is this but an at
tempt, not < nly to intimidnto the
people of those States who oppose
them, but to influence the President
by expressions of sinister designs?
They know that there is no danger oi
any violent opposition to the course of
the administration, whatever it shall
be, on the part of Hampto n'aud Nich
