THE FATE OF A NEWSPAPER.
The sheriff came down like a cat on strange
His pockets were full of attachments and
And the sound of his voice was .as drcear.as
That makes a poor debtor in haste cut and
And there stood the printing-press, still as
Propelled by no Muscle, unawaked by no
The furnace unlighted, the engine unheard,
The cylinder empty, the piston unstirred.
And there lay the foolscap, .unwritten and
Upon it no item, no leader, no tale;
The lamps were unlighted, the sanctum was
With rust on the scissors, and dust in the
And there lay the horse with no paper lupon't
No rule in the stick, no ink in the fount.
The cases were empty of letter and space,
No sheets on the bank, and no form in the
The platten was still, and the carriage mov
No form in the lyeo-trough, no paste in the
The proof uncorrected, the leader unwrit,
The mallet not lifted, the planer unhit,
For the Angel of Death-the Evangel of
Had found in the True Californian, a flaw;
And the Journal, alas! like the sword fish
Felt death in the touch, axd turned corpse
like and blue,
And there lay the mighty Colossus of Rhodes
With brass quite su icient for nine hundred
And the glory of Caxton, in spite of his
Had perished, like frost-work, for want of
A hoosier travelling through tithe
State of Maine, chanced to stop at a ()
'Violin manufactoiy.' Just as he en
tered, a person took one out of its case 'I
commenced screwilig it up. and then tl
drew a bow across the strings to as- S
certain whether it was in tunie. The i
hoosier was a silent spectator, vet ti
looked on with amazement ; but thi '1
moment the bow was dlraw nacrois
the strings, hie rushed out of the doir, N
and left the place as fast as his legs
would carry hins. After settlingT his
business, hle started directly for hoie,
and on his arrival sent h r all his
"Well, neighbors, I've seti the
most cruel thing that ever was ~id!"
said the lioosi"r.
Neighbor.-"I'll bet a pound of
ginger bread that you hav'ut."
"Done," said hle.
"What was it'?" they asked.
"You know that I've been travell
ing through Maine on some business
of your'n," lie replied.
"Yes! but what did you see,?"
"I saw n mani open a box, and take
a Rig Redlug out on'it; he pulled tlhe
poor critter's cars, and then drew a
knife across its belly. Oh! Jerusa
lenm how the poor critter did squeal."
jThe neighbors, who had assembled
without delay, exipecting to hear
some important communicationl' open
ed their eyes with wonder; but were
not a little provoked at being thus
summarily called together, when
they were told by one "who had
seen more of the world" than the oth
ers, that the "Big Ited Bug" was
nothing more tor less that a fiddle,
its "ears" the screws, and the "knife"
the bow !
