And left me all alone to mourn
My own sweet LucyiWay.
Now ebery day I cross de creek,
To kneel upon de clsy
Dt covers all I loved on earth,
My own sweet Lucy May.
THE UNCLAD HORSEMAN.
A TALE FOUNDED ON FACT.
bsolem Nippers was a widower.
and one of the particularest men, per-
iu.i ! . . r
nap, mai ever uvea: tiiouglit lome
people siid that wlien his wife was
alive, lie used to dress as common as a
held hand; didn't use to take no pains
with hirnselt at all. In his settlement,
h.9 had a monstrous bad name, particu.
larly among women, who used to say
thai he didn't allow his. wife more
thati one dress a year, and as for a new
shawl or a- bonnet,' the poor woman
didn't know nothing about such tilings.
Every body noticed . bow ho spruced
up about six weeks after Mrs. Nippers
died, and how be went to church reg
ular on Sunday; But they didn't have
any confidence in. his. religion.and
used to say he oojy went to show his
new suit of mourning and to ogle the
g&ls. Old Mrs. Kodgers hated him
like pisou, and sajf that the believed
his poor wife diei broken-hearted; and
as ipr nis pretending to be lorry about
it, bat was' all sham, for she could
tef plain . .enough at the furneral (hat
he liad one eye xa the grave and the
other on the gals, that were there, try.
ingto pick out of them a wife.
Y Mi such a character among the
women il aint to be supposed that he
siooa any sort oi a cuance of getting
another Mrs. Nippers near, home; and
whether he was as bad to his first as
they said he was or not, one thing
was certain, he had to look abroad for
someone to fill her place.
Mr. Nippers was very lucky in find
ing a gal just to his mind what lived
about ten miles from his plantation.
Nancy Parker- was rich, and though
she wasn't very young nor very hand
some, she beloneed to Mr. Ni
curch.atHl filled his eye exactly; so he
sot in courting her with all his
Tep miles was a good long ride.and he
was a very econ omical man, he used
to ride., over to old Mr. Parker's plan
latioR every Sunday morning, and go
to church with thew, and ride home
in the cool of the ttening. In that
way managed to kill two birds with
one stone. jih at is, no advace the pros
pects of hisi hanniness nn flu a oi-il,

time, witjMul losiner anv of hi

so much as his horse; but in a mat ter
such as he had in - hand, it waavery
iiiiLwiau. mat ne snouia make as good
au impressioa .as possible; So he a
dopterj a plan by which he was able to
present himself before tbe object of
ut xiicuiuiis m oraer wiui nis sun
day coat as clean, and his-blooming
rufjles 81 fresh and neat as if they had
jusi come out or. a Dana-box. This
was a happy experiment, and wbat
nobody but. a widower-lover would
ever dreapi ol. He used to start from
ttiome with his new "c6at and clean
shirt tied up in a pocket-handkerchief,
and after riding within a quarter of a
mile of Afra.' Parker's plantation, h
would turn off into a thicket of chick,
apin bushes, where nobody coojd see
him, and there make his rural toilet. -
One bright . Sunday morning' Jlr.
Nippers hid' arrived , at his dressing
ground. ' It wis an .important pecas-

Mr, Nirpeis eralbed hold of the

it was no use. ' Awav the infuriated
Ball, taking the road he used tu travel
in another moment brought him to
the house. The sales were ODen. and
in dashed the horse, with almost naked
Nippers lianging to his neck, hallooing
"slop him hornets! hornets!" as loud
as he could scream.
Out come the docs, and alter the
horse! They went round and round the
house, scattering the ducks and chick

of their senses. The noise brought the
women 10 me aoor.
"Don't look, Miss Nancv! hornets!

Nippers, as with spent breath he went
dashing out ot the gate again, with the
dogs still after him. aud his horse's tail
switching ; in every direction, .like a
young hurricane. Miss Nancy got but

Do you tell me that a knownothine is
whig? Loud laughter, and much an.

why, sir, (turning to Mr, Coi,)ihe Phil
adelphia convention of last year, iu
their platform, which you have bean
swearing by ever since you hsve 'iseo

both the old parties the deomcratie
