U1S IIOKllOIt AT HEARING THAT
WILLIAM CULLEN RRYANT
AND RALPH WALDO EM
ERSON WERE NEGRO
NER IN PEA
X. Y. Correspondence Chicago Tribune.
The fluctuations of fortuno in this coun
try ere to tudden, and men so frequently
cliango their avocations, that It is not
strange foreigners can bo mado dupes in
regard tothu antocedenti and occupations
of our jpfeblio men.
An Englishman, qulto well informed for
an Englishman in regard to America, ar
rived bnro recently and was much aston
ished aUtbo peculiar things ho saw and
heard. Ho could hardly credit tbo story
that tho president of tbo United Slates
onco owned a little farm near St. Louis,
depended for substanco upon bauling
small wagon loads of wood, and, on ac
count of his habits was unable to support
his tamily. Ho thought that they who
told him this were trying to "take him in,
you know," and received the llttlo history
with uzclamations of "Walker I"
"Walker I" Finally convinced of its
truth, he was preparod to credit anything,
and strolling through Barclay street the
other morning, observed over a small
shop the sign :
" WILLIAM C. BRYANT, TAILOR."
" I say now," ho remarked to bis com
panion, a journalistic wag of some note,
" do you see that name there 7 It's tho
same as your favorite poet, tbo author of
Tbanatopsii. It isn't the same family, I
" Not only the same family," was the
reply, " but the samo man."
"Is it, indoed? Well, that is very
strange I 1 thought Mr. Bryant was a
wealthy journalist, tho publisher of one of
the greatest newspapers here." .
"He was," answered tbo joker, "a few
years ago. Then be owned tbo greater
part or tho 'Evening Post', but ho went to
Saratoga onu summer, got to drinking
champugne and betting on ft.ro till he be
came bankrupt, and was for some tltno de
pendent on tbo charity of his friends."
"Really, that is very extraordinary,
now I I think I remember something of
your Mr. Bryant's singular career. Let
me see. Let ma see. After he had lost
his fortune, didn't he go into the negro
minstrel business? Seems to me 1 have
beard of Bryant's minslrols. Devilish
queer that a great poet should black his
face and play a tamborinc, now, isn't it?"
'Ob, no I "not queer here; nothing is
queer in this country. Bryant made a
great deal of money with his minstrels by
dancing the Camptown hornpipe every
night to crowded houses."
"How did he happen to be a tailor,
"He tried to jnonopolizo tbo peanut
market by getting up a corner in the trade,
and, again losing every dollar ho had, he
was forced to set up Ibis shop in order to
make a livelihood."
"A corner in peanuts? Now I don't
exactly understand that, you know. Did
ho get into the corner himself, or did he
get somebody else into tho corner? But
there's no use in trying to understand
such beastly business. It's enough to floor
a follow completely, you know, to think of
a great poet getting peanuts in a corner,
and then ' bursting up,' as you say in
America, you know."
"Not many of our public men do go into
the peanut trado; but tho minstrel busi
ness is quite a favorito with our scholars
and thinkers. You've heard of Emerson,
the Sage of Concord, as he is often called,
have you not?"
'Ralph Waldo Emerson? Ob, yes ; ho
whom we named tbo American Carlyle,
you know. He isn't a negro minstrel, is
"Of courso he is. Hos plavinc here
now and when it comos to a first-class
banjo-solo, Ralph Waldo Emerson is
mighty hard to teat."
"But really, now," said the perplexed
Englishman, "I shouldn't think a man
who wrote tho 'fcnglish Traits' wouia ue
forced to do that sort of thing. What's
tho uso of being a man of genius in
America, you know, It you nave vo earn
your bread and butter by playing a bloody
banjo, you know ? This Is indeed an ex
traordinary country, add tho more I learn
about it tho less I understand it.
