execution of the rooster, and shortly
afterwards he was bouncing about in
a tour quart kettle, hung over the
tire, and Sal returned to her churn,
but the extraordinary visitor must
have made her nervous, for sho up

Burke, and help dip it up. Take

FRONTIER WEDDING.
The following discription .of a
frontier wedding is probably over
drawn but as it is little racy, it
will bear being reproduced at this
%ime:
One day my husband received a
summons to Burke's settlement, to
unite a couple in the bonds of wed
lock. It was especially requested
that his wife should accott pauy hitn,
as he should be expected to retnaiu
all night, an
if partake of the festiv
ities.
It was twenty miles to the settle
ment, and we i cached the log house
of Mr. Burke, tbo father of the ex
pected bride, about uoon. A doxen
tow-haired children were at the door
awaiting our arrival. They telegraph
ed the news instantly.
'Marin! inarm hyais the elder and
his wooian They're nothiug but
common folks She's got a man's
hat on, and a turky wing in front of
it his nose is jist loike dad's, as
crooked as a cow-horn squash.'
Alas for Mr. Morrisou's aquiline
nose, of which he was just
a
littb
vain.
Sam ened a shrill femalo voice
from the interior of the cabin, 'run
ont and grab tbe rooster, and I'll
slap him iuto the pot. Sal, yon quit
that churnin' and sweep tte floor.
Kick that coru dodger under the
bed. Bill, you wipe the taller out
of tho cheer fur the elder's wife, and
bo spry about it.'
Further remarks were cut short
by our entrance.
Mrs. Burke, in calico short gown,
blue petticoat auil baro ieet, otiue
forward, wiping her face with her
apron.
v 4 How do you do, elder IIow d'ye
ltd, raarm? Must i-Seuse my head—
way
We generally uso tho ladder.'
I was duly commiserated, and at
last got to bed. The less said about
that, night tho better. Bill and Dick
and four others slept in the same
room with us, and made the air vo
cal with their snoring. I bill asleep
and dreamed I was just being shot
from the muzzle of a columbiad, and
was awakened by Mr. Morrison, who
informed me it was morning.
The marriage was to take place
before breakfast, and Sally was al
ready clad in her bridal robes when 1
descended he ladder.
Sho was magnificent in groen cali
co over a crinoline full four inches
larger than the rest ol her apparel, a
white apron with red strings, blue
stockings, a yellow neck ribbon, and
white cotton gloves. Her reddish
hair was fastened in a pug hchiud,
and was well adorned with tho tail
feathers of the defunct rooster before
mentioned.
When it was announced that Lem
Lord, the groom, was coining, Sally
dived behind a coverlet, which had
beeu hung across one corner of the
room, to conceal sundry pots and
kettles, and refused to come forth.
Mr. Lord lilted one corner of the
curtain and peeped in, but quiokl)
retreated, followed by a stew-pan
and a few sharp words from Sally,
advising him to mind his own busi
ness.
Lemuel was dressed in bluo, with
bright buttons. The entire suit haa
been made lor his grand lather, on a
similar occsion. His hair was well
greased with tallow, and his huge
foot incased in skin pumps.
Very soon the company began to
gather, and the room was well filled.
Now, elder,' said the bridegroom
'Dive ahead I waut it done up nice
I'm able to pay for the job do you
hear Come, father, trot out your
gal.'
But Sally refused to be trotted.
She would be married where sho was
or not at all. We urged and coaxed
but she was firm and it was finally
concluded to let her have her own
way.
Mr. Morrison arose, the happy
couple joined hands through the
rent in the corerlet, and the ceremo
ny proceeded. Just as Mr. Morri
son was asking Lemuel, 'Will you
have the woman,' etc., down came
the coverlet, enveloping bridegroom,
and pastor, filling the house with
dust. Dick had been up in the loft
and cut tho strings which held it.
Mr. Morrison crawled out, looking
decidedly sheepish, and Sally was
obliged to be married openly. To the
momentous quostion, Lemuel re
sponded:
'To be sure what else did 1 come
hero for
And Sally replied* Taas, if ybn
mHst know.' Y
'Salute
rison,
1
your
bride,
said Mr. Mor­
whuu all was
over.
I'm ready to do any
thing® elder,'
said Lemuel,' but skin me, it I know
about that ,sir. Just show me how,
and I'll do it it it kills ine.
My husband drew back nervously,
but Sally advanced, threw her arms
abound his neck, and gave hiin a kiss
that made the very windows clatter.
I vutn, if I don't ditto!' cried
Lemuel, and hastily taking a huge
bite from a piece of maple sugar that
ho drew from his pocket, he made
a
dash at me, smashed my collar, and'
broke my watch-guard into a dozen
pieces, tore my hair down, aud suo
ceaded in plauting a kiss on my nose,
greatly to the delight of the compa
ny.
Xow, elder, what is the damages?
Don't be afeered to speak.'
'Whatever you please, said Mr.
Morrison. Lemnel produced a piece
of fur.
'There, eldet,' said he, 'there's a
piece of muskrat skin and out in
the shed is two heads of cabbage
and you're welcome to the whole
of it.
My husband bowed his thanks, the
young fulks went to dancing, Mrs.
Burke went to getting breakfast, and
at my earnest request, Mr. Morrison
got our horse, and we bade them
adiew. I never should have lived
through another meal in that bouse.
I have since heard that Mr. Lord
said that it he had sctm the elder's
wilo before ho married, Sally might
have gone to tho dickens..
Alas, it might have been
A CRITICISM.
Jaok and Giil went up tli3 hill,
To get a pail ot' water
Jaok fell down and broke his erowo,
And Gill eome tumbling after.
In conducting
a
i
Sal lighted a pitch knot, and climb- I
ed a ladder in one corner of the
room I hesitated.
Come on,' cried she, 'don't be
afraid. Sam, and Bill, and Dick, all
of vou duck your heads while the
elder's wife goes up. Look out fer
the loose boards, Marm, and mind,
or you'll smash your brains out agin
that beam. Take care of the bole
whero the chimbley comes up.
ITer warning came too late.
1 caught my toot in the end of a
board stumbled, and fell headlong
through what appeared to be inter
minable space, but it was only to the
room I hail just left, where I was
saved lroni destruction by Bill, who
caught me in his arms and .Jet me on
my feet, remarking—
'What made you como that
criticism oil this
beautiful poem, we shall first attend
to whal may bo called tho rythmical
and dynamical qualities ot the verse.
Observe tho perfect measure:
Jack and Gill went np the hill.
The tim part of tho first foot is
lackiug, but that is fully oomponsat
ed in the next verse, is hypercatalec
tic
To get a pafl of water.
The er in this iustanca would ex
aotly fill the incomplete foot of the
first verse, thus producing a grand
iambic diameter, and leaving the seo
and verso a delightful tripody.
Tho next two verses display the
satno wonderful poetic structure
Jack fell doirn nnd broke his crown,
And Giil come tumbling after.
Observe the pleasing highly mu«
sioal effect produce by the addition
of tho fractional foot er:
And Gill come tumbling after.
Let us now turn our attention to
what are really tho essential ele
ments of poetry—the nature of th«
thought and quality of the sentiment.
First, the thought. Ail truo poetry
is highly imaginative. This is highly
imaginative. Jack and Gill never
went up the hill to get a pail of wa
ter. The poet imagined they did
and in this eonsist, very largely, its
poetry. Again, Jack didn't fall
down and break his crown, and Gill
come tumbling alter. The poot
simply imagined all this, and henue
it is all tho more poetic. Again,
this is an upward flight ot the imagi
nation Jack and Gill went up the
lull. They also wont up to get wa
ter, which makes the conception
still more striking. It would have
been commonplaco and matter of
fact to go down the hill lor water.
Notice that in the next line it is
not the imagination that falls, but
Jack—Jack fell down. Notice, too,
tho result. He did not break tho
connection of tho story he did not
eveu break tho flight ot the poet'a
laucy he simply broke las crown.
We may suppose it was afterward.
We have as good a right to suppos®
ibis as tho poet had to imagine
it
broken at all. And now tho
catastrophe:
And Gill eome tumbling after.
This is perfectly harmonious. W«
should naturally have expected it.
We may suppose that Gill was lean
ing on Jack, and that, therefore,"
when Jack tell, Gill, by necessity,
went tumbling after or, wo may
suppose that Gill loved Jaok inofft
than we can tell, aud that, when she
saw him fall and break his crown,
ill
a fit* ot sheer desperation she threw
herself atter him. Either hypothesis
would tullv account for th'S tacts, baj
I am inclined to accept the latter,
being more poetic and consonant
with the pathetic nature of the scene.*
