[Ry the author of “The Political Hoise-Race.’'] From a boy I was given to a wandering spit it. He lore I was twelve years old I abandoned mv parents and went in pursuit uf adventures. Nothing afforded me p easurc but novelty, so 1 could not confine myself long m one place. 1 had heard of the freedom and happiness of Atnetica; had been told that the poor might there get rich, the humble be distinguished, the low-born powerful, and the foolish wise. By the powers, said I, as I stood gazing on the faint image ol a departing vessel, which | bore some of my relatives to this land of blessedness, ; the first chance 1 will try my fortune in this cai,lily j paiadise. And well 1 might, for 1 had neither land, . chatties, goods nor character in Ireland, and none but J those who have tried it know what a poor Irishman suf I fi ts in his native land. J.uckily, 1 had a stro:v» con j stitulion, firm feeling and a merrv heart. A stranger is put to it when he wishes a passage I act oss the Atlantic—1 mean a poor stranger, lor if he hut gmgle money enough, whole ships arc at his ser s icc. But since i was determined to go a* all hazards, 1 hiied myself to a captain for six months, to perforin any duty he might require; and hill well I suffered for my honesty; he engaged me in cleansing the ship, ■ washing for the sailors and cooking. Now, you see I how it is, said 1 to myself, they make a dog of me. By jibe powers, in truth they did, for I slept on straw and ■ fed on bones an i crusts — but 1 bad patience, ami the moment u*c Jaiulril, having servocj only six ivoclis, I [eloped from the ship,'firstproviding myself bountifully [with clothing and loose cash fiom the coffers of my ( messmates. My conscience justified me, for I was m i " a»t and they bad to spare; but an Irishman, on land j »ng without frivuds or means, is not very punctilious, j H e dropped anchor at Boston—eh, how mv poor heart i leaped! Now, by the ashes of my ancestors, said 1 j but I will eat and be happy—r ^iU revel. Going up , trom the wharf into the town, I was attracted hy the .ignofa mug and glasses painted on a fiat board over the door. Now, by my faith, and I will taste of th*. i honey and wine of this land of contentment- k,, nnio.-. j 'nff with great eagerness, who should I see but iny old ; friend Neil O L legan; a better soul and stouter lieait : never lived; but Neil had absconded from old Ireland , on suspicion of potntoc stealing, and did uot wish to I .;now an old acquaintance. “Oh! blood and zounds,” ! cried I, leaping over the square box, behind winch be ' j was Sitting, “lad, give me your hand and heart, a hotter j heart never beat.” But Neil was silent. “Now,” paid 1, “man, never fear that 1 will tell anyone living, i hut myself, that you stole potatoes.” “Will you be j true, rny honest darling?” said Neil. “Or die and be • damned,” replied I — “Then I am your honey,” relurn ! ed my friend. To o Irishmen, when they meet in good fellowship in a strange land, arc the happig t, most generous, candid, communicative creatures imaginable. They I talk over old times, oM friends, future’ prospects and present mi-fWrturios. Nothing hc!ps their intercourse .imver er so much as good ale. Hut I was somewhat thunderstruck at the appearance of rny friend. From a spare well made youth, he had grown to the size of a | still tub. llisface, which was once fair and smooth, seemed as round and as tiory as tha new moon when con through the mists of autumn; his eyes might have been taken for the windows of a furnace, and Tiis nose, w hin!) seemed almost in a bhrze, * as a heavy, dead weight. “Ton must not call mo Neil OFIegan,”slid he. ‘Faith, and what must I call you?” returned I. “lva trie 0‘JVIegan.” “Now, by rny soul, do you wish to p'ay a trick on me; was not jour name Neil O Flegan when yon loft Ireland, an! why need ye be ashamed "f it?” “ ’Twas so,” repli. d rny (rind', “hut 1 have dwelt in sundry towns and villages in this land of freedom, and never failed to mal -* debts er.d he im posed upon in every one; so when 1 uas oblig' d to go away to got justice. 1 always changed rny name, and then they could not find mo to I.»m»>Io mr, f.>r Irishmen • re so thick in (hij country, nr: f all .so much alike 1 “n,y the start of a night to cscar-clVom any ihing.’ “Oil. as for that, rny darling. I as livccaM ’ ou O' Megan as OT’legan, or O-Bevil as cither-the odds of a name i; nothing when a body can do an act of justice by- it.” “<) Corcle.” said my f ind, fust emptying the! tankard ot small I cor, * this is i.ot the abode of peace,! plenty and ease we were taught to believe. No, it is j dwelling rlacc of ciafiiuess and difloultv. .0.1 must woil; and be cheated, and find that it 'is nard enough m all faith to live. Now must foreigners ire denuded with the opumm that they are to he borne on the wings of the. wind, to listen to unbroken music, rest on down and dwell in smiles. How dissatisfied, therefore, are they when they witness (he fact, arid aie compelled to labor and steal, or be honest and snilei! But Irishmen want very little; a cup of small beer a suit of thunder am! lightning, a stalfi and mod health .3 all. But OCorcle,” continued he, “if\osi arc not ear. fill, you will he alw ly s getting into mistakes and dilhcnlties. Tlmse Americans have a thousand opinions (bat yon never heard of, and for that very reason they will go to war with yon. 11 old j our tongue, laugh win ii you please, and be sure to he on the strong side.” J left my friend to wander over the town, bnt gratin'* a little drunk, did not return until next evening when t.»my surpriso I found tl.c shop descried ami OT IcganoU*. Tl.c neighbors informed me that neces sity or tear had put him in motion. 1 bethought me of the example set me, so laying sly hands on” a nice wallet of clothing, I bid farewell t'o Boston, and set forwards. The night came on - I descried a small building, amj moving up, found a sign, “Apples and Ale,” so’in I rushed. As good luck woum have* it, another of my lusty countrymen wa3 barkeeper. I found also a large crowd of people. “I low!” cried one, -f.jr Jack son! I would as soon have every limb in my bones broke ni to see him president—where are his mer its or talents? lie is a dangerous man. As for A dams, who docs riot lose and respect him? The wMI taught politician, the diplomatist, the scholar, ! and the gentleman.” This speakor seemed a iiilc' knowing; he was called major ton, and I paid mr I best re-pect?: “Your honor an please you, who may be Ibis Jackson and Adams?” “They are candidate? f,.r | i President.” “An please you, wliat is the President?”! “Why he is the chief magistrate of tho nation, ha* ! 1 money, power, and fame at his disposalAt this a i I low, mipjioiuve, tiquirr ,j J ; who 1 was fo.? “By my soul,” snid I, “and (r n,..t is; ; the truth. I ;.m for myself, and who would not be1'?1 j They ail laughed at iny folly for a smart joke, an ! five ' l me a dram, and surely I did not refi:*'*. But said the o/'al gentleman, “ifyou could make the President. who l should he be?” 1 bad a-efilained that Jackmn sprang I from Irish parentage, ±0 I clamored for him. Now, hy my soiij I was innocent, hill the people in llassachusctts were so deranged a rid irifatualr-1 about t’oc presidency, and so devoted to Adams, that they despised, oppoed and injured any man who w.-.. a gairist him. They would not let me have another drop of spirits, but ordered me from the house, and branded me lory. “ Blood and zounds,” cried I “ wliat docs this mean' Now hang me head and toe, if l know or care any thing about Jackson, Adams or the Presidency, and to he thus buffe'ed and *nnt adrift, is provoking. Blit what comes nes'? st.ail I lie on the cold grr.und and starve oil night1” As my fortune blessed me, I saw another house n<>! far di-.tmjf, so in I Stepped. It was apiivaic homo, and the l.uiv apj e-fr. C't kind and polite. Telling her i was for Adams. J begged to lodge there. “Yes sir, you r ari stay all ni..ht,” arul I soon fell, J«irt, hand and tooth, to a savorv meal which film prepared. “ By my soul,” said !, “ madam, hnt you are the kindest lady the world o rar -once for all I derJarc for the Americans, that they are Iwwpitablo an! social—they will break a man « head and take good cure of him until it is mend cd, tear the skin from his shoulders, and y«d give him ] money and fo'-d.

A« dams is my man.” “ Is it so? then yon aie right ; wile, let us have the spirit; the stranger is welcome.” \\ hat! thought 1; arc the A met icons so deinnged, so warmly and vainly addicted to governing their social fee lings and conduct l»y political views, that they bate or love, sc^yc or injure, just as one coincides or dif fers. 1 will take advantage of this national prejudice; l will for ever be for Adams. Indeed I began to be .'O in good faith. I hey attributed to him every virtue. J;,ckson, he was represented as an aibitrirv mitiiniy cliicttaiu. l.\ery thing bore the name of A dams. fherc was the Adams hotel, the Adams print ing office, the Adams committee. 'Fite women cla moured in his favor, and ti e boys fought for him. I could not travel a. mile without meeting some chubby— 1 .uctu c.luM tullod Jokn 1 itn%J i^t. 1 atiick in my own country, but now, thought 1, he is a shadow by the side of this Adams. “ liy the powers,” said 1. I will be for Adams till mv death.” I bought, a piece of ribbon on which was stamped JZr/rtnir, and stucif it in my hat; and as 1 passed a grog shop, would bellow, huzza for Adams andAinoiica. It was sure toget me fi rends, goodfareand a night’s lodging. On j wards I travelled, the lord knows wknt slates over, until 1 reached Pennsylvania. Ilero 1 thought there was a change in feelings and affairs. I had not gone tar before 1 espied a grogshop—“ huzza fur Adams,” i ’a'” !• “ fseizc him, he.it him.” •* Stop, stop,” cried i *• “ l low ate you all:” “ For Jackson, to be sure— , n* is the honest man, tl.c brave soldier, the stern po litic:.>n. the virtuous citizen, we owe him honor, pmv j or and wealth. As for Adams, he is a political gatn I bier, a kniiio, !ic counted the people, opposes their 'will, and so long as he is President, our liberty is [ flown.” “ lllood zounds, but I am a Jackson man ” replied I. 1 tore Adams from m\ bat. stuck general Jackson on, and now hallooed huzza for general Jackson.” Ifa jolly foreigner accords with the feeling* and prejudices oT these Americans, they Jove and cherish , n* 1 a farthing, but 1 lived plentifully on the credit ot my love for Jackson. If I called at a house and said, •• can an old friend of Jackson stay all mg il. tue doors flew wide open, and 1 entered as free as the master ot the castle. So long as I was for Jack sen, I preserved my hones, conscience and comfort: ”u. * ‘ , •wreseauis uestmy? i |msucd my jour ney and at length entered the state of Kentucky. Old land or strong drink, doggo is. stud horses, g,-(»~ «,i,ops and candidates, would I had never seen you! I came sound, healthy and happy—I departed bruised, disor dered and miserable. Somehow I had a strange pre sage of danger—the people looked furious talked |uUl] rode fast, swore and disputed. 'l ine one Called him! selt alligator, that steam boat, this sea serpent, that ti ger. One would be called half horse, half nili^ntor and the other part snapping turtle. I had heard the 1 ennsj Iranians abuse ami denounce one C lav in con nexion with Adams, so, coming insight of a tavern | where I found a collection of men, horses, wagons’ . dogs and hogs, I joined the motley c.rcw. The house i was m uproar and commotion— “Old court, new court Desha, Beauchamp, hemp, tubaeco. Adams Clav’ Jackson,” were heard at the same instant, j'uuietiv ; anti peaceably laid my knapsack in the corner and wishing to insinuat.s myself into the favor of the pt o | l’le, 1 bellowed out “ ITuz/. i f„r Jackson, damn A j dams and day.” “ Kill him, pluck out hiseyes bile | ofr Ins nose,” reverberated through the bourse. They luted clubs, diew Spanish dirks, and in less than :i minute I was bruised, mangled and helpless. They ranoverme, threw my knapsack out at tire duor. and saidj should he hung. “ ypare me, spare me, feJW citizcns, for I am a poor devil and will do as vm please ” “ v* ' for Adams & Clnj?” *« \ L.s> y^ 5es'»i “ Gf,ve f,im smne Sr<V, «ie up his wounds and a’,k hi5 paidon.” So soon as I could tiav cl. 1 „|arlcd and hal loord “ Huzza for Clay and Adams.” But in this land ol opposition and yncortainty who can ho always on the safe side? Kpsoived to Uncinate wi'h the tide. 1 would fain have learned where a new change would begin, hull could not. Before 1 was i aware, 1 entered Tennessee—•“Huzza f..r Clpy and Adams,” still cried I. Luckless man. doomed to dif-I ticii.tics ami wounds. 1 was again attacked, overrun ftiid despised. But now I a n in Nashville, J am once more fi,r Tack- ' son, continually chinking I,is health and wishing him! success and long life. Here I hare determined (ostav ; to procure a small house, set up a gtog shop, arid I call it the Jackson grog shop. 1 will fight for Oid ' Hickory, curse Clay and Adams, and I am cure to sue- I coed. Nothing call resist me—devoted to Jackson, I ! can heal down all opposition.
