TO THE PUBLIC.
Hail! honored ages of grand progression,
While each one clings to his profession,
And science moves with onward motion,
To suit each wayward thought and notion,
bringing to light, some new invention,
More strange than modern wit can mention,
Or genius paint with true endeavor,
Though making graphic strides forever,
While reason urges proud ambition,
To strive for wondrous competition;
Yet in this age of glorious Art,
We can the meed of praise impart,
When meritorious efforts claim
A modest putt' to gild the name,
And thus we call with honest pride,
Attention to the Painters Side,
Two men who bravely know their calling,
Whose works are worthy of extolling,
Two model artists of the day,
And most obliging in their way,
Moreland & Jakeinan—mark the name,
In Roanoke street you’ll find the same,
Call at their shop number one,
You’ll get the best of Painting done,
And whether Poe, Friend, or neighbor,
They’ll charge but moderate for their labor,
So now I invite each one and all,
So walk around, and give them a call,

SOLE AGENT FOR
BENNY.
I had told him Christinas morning,
As he sat upon my knee,
Holding fast his little stockings,
Stuffed as full as full could be,
And attentive listening to me,
With a face demure and mild,
That old Santa Claus, who filled them,
Did not love a naughty child.
“But we’ll be good, won't we, moder V*
And from otF my lap he slid,
Digging deep among the goodies,
In his crimson stockings hid;
While 1 turned me to my table,
Where a tempting goblet stood,
Brimming high with dainty egg-nog,
Sent me by a neighbor, good.
But the kitten, there before me,
With his white paw, nothing loth,
Sat, by way of entertainment,
Slapping off’ the shining froth ;
And in not the gentiest humor
At the loss of such a treat,
I confess, 1 rather rudely
Thrust him out into tne street.
Then, how Benny’s blue eye kindled 1
Gathering up the precious store
He had busily been pouring
In his tiny pinafore.
With a generous look that shamed me,
Sprang he from the carpet bright,
Showing, by his mien indignant
All a baby’s sense of right.
“Come back, Harney 1” called he, loudly,
As he held his apron, white—
“You shall have my candy wabbit 1“
But the door was fastened tight;
So he stood, abashed and silent,
In the center of the floor,
With defeated look alternate
Bent on me and on the door.
Then, as by some sudden impulse,
Quickly ran he to the lire,
And while eagerly his bright eyes
Watched the flames go high and higher,
In a brave, clear kev he shouted,
Like some lordly little elf,
“Santa Kaus, come down de chimney,
Make my moder ’have herself!”
“I’ll be a good girl, Benny,”
Said 1, feeling the reproof;
And straightway called poor Harney,
Mewing on the gallery roof.
Soon the anger was forgotten,
Laughter chased away the frown,
And they gambolled ’neath the live oaks
Tift tlie dusty night came down.
In my dim, fire-lighted chamber,
Harney purred beneath my chair,
And my play-worn boy beside me,
Knelt to say his evening prayer :
“God Less Fader—God bess Moder,
God bess Sister,”—then a pause,
And the sweet young lips devoutly
Murmured, “God bess Santa Hums 1”
He is sleeping—brown „nd silken
Lie the lashes, long and meek,
Like caressing, clinging shadows
On his plump and peachy cheek ;
And I bend above him, weeping
Thankful tears—Oh, Undefiled!
For a woman’s crown of glory,
For the blessing of a child.
How Cairo got her Bad Reputa
tion.
The editor of the Cairo Times and Del
ta , who is trying to write that place up,
thus accounts for her terrible reputation:
Yeare ago, when we first became a
Cairoite the reputation of the place was
decidedly hard. Strangers stopping in
the place for a change of boats, consider
ed the safety of their baggage by means
certain, and their chances of escape
without a bullet hole in their carcesses
about five to five. Citizens observing
the foolish trepidation of such persons
would carelessly gather about them;
pershaps lounge on their baggage; display
(accidently of course) the handle of a ten
pound clever, a ten-inch butcher knife, or
the pole of a' hatchet, partly concealed
about the porsons, and commence, witli a
perfect sang froid, a conversation, per
haps, in the following strain:
“I say Bob, were you at the ball last
night?”
“ xesl ileal nice time, tom; tour mou
killed. Help bury ’em this morning.
Put 'em all in a queens-ware crate and
sink ’em in the Ohio. Stunk some,”
“ I saw the fight—most beautiful. Efe
Larkin dropped his ’innards’ the first rake
he received from Had Noel’s tooth-pick,
tie flickered out laughing at the pretty
lick. Ah, it was beautiful! But that
infernal butcher, whoso wizzon you clip
ped, hacked and stabbed Mark's carcass
so awkwardly that I took it to bo his
first1 set to.” Mark, poor fellow, did his
best; but, of course ho could’nt fight in
close quarters with a fence rail.”
In this style conversation would bo
kept up a few minutes, when the party
recollecting that it had been ten minutes
since they had “liekered,” under pretence
of getting a drink, would disperse. The
travellers, perhaps, would scarcely re
cover from the horror thus occasioned,
before a citizen rolling an empty barrel
by them, would be accosted by another
citizen:
“Hank, what are you going to do with
that?”
“Coffin, Bill—boy dead !”
“Oh. get a box—be human—here’s one
—the very feller.”
Hank measures it—looks puzzled a
minute, then shouldering it, very coolly
rejoins: "Too short a foot, but I’ll bury
him decent. You see that I can just saw
his legs off!" And with the same indif
ference that one one would expect to ob
serve where such brutality is common,
the parties would separate, or perhaps
take a drink, the distressed father (?) with
his son’s coffin on his tack 1 Such pro
ceedings of course, would make the very
flesh of the observing stranger crawl with
perfect horror. They would confirm him
in the belief of every hard story he had
ever heard of Cairo; and, of course, find
their way into the papers as facts for
everybody’s perusal.
In this manner Cairo has obtained
much of her bad reputation
Beaut-Rending Suicide.—“So you
had a bad suinscide at your house lass
nito, Sam,”' said a colored gemman, on
meeting his colored crony, a waiter at a
hotel.
“Oh, yes, Lemuel, dat we had—it al
mose scart me into takin a drink, lie
wus gis from California, wid heaps of
noospapers. He cub ober de Jerecipelus
by the Niggerauoer route, and put up to
our house prebious to his ’rival. I tort
de man wus out ob he hod kaso ho gave
me a shillin’ as soon as he laid eyes on
me—from dat minit I stuck by him fur
fear sum interested pusson might git a
hold ob him. Do next morning ’as the
chambermaid was agwauc up stairs wid
a shuttle ob cole for her breakfuss, she
smelt ludlum, pausin' de man’s do’—soon
as she smelt dat she smelt a rat. Sho
nocked to do man’s do,’ but no answer —
Den she broke de do’ doun, and dar laid
de man wid ho boots on, and in he throat
wus a stickiu in a bottle ob ludlum. She
hollered and we all kotched hold of de
bottle and tryes to pull it out, but it
wassent no use. Wo had to send for the
sturgeon. De sturgeon cum, and made
a decision here in de neck nie the Borax,
which reached as far as de equillibrum
reached into de sarcofogus—and putting
a cortven in de decision, glib it a poke wid
a dispatchiiiSjWhcn out flew de bottle and
all wus safe.”
“What was safe, Sam, de man ?”
“No, de bottle—de man wus ded afore
de sturgeon cume—but he had to do
sumfin to earn a feeler.”
“Wus dere ennything found in de
pockets, Sam?”
“How you suppose I know ?” .Do you
tink I’d put my hand in to feel. W hat do
you mean to sinewate ?”
“0 ! nifffin—only I nebber seed you
hah sich good close ou afore dat’s all.”
Usury in the sural districts.—
Rual Money-lender—“ You want a hun
dred dollars? Here’s the money; I charge
five per cent a month, and as you want
it for a year, that leaves just forty dollars
coming to you.”
Innocent Borrower—“Then if I want
it for two years, there’d he something
coming to you, eh?”
Many persons utter an offensive witti
cism in reply to a friend, for no better
reason than the boy gave for knocking
his father down—“ lie stood so fair T
couldn’t help it."
A gentleman in conversation with Dr.
Johnson having, to some of the usual
arguments for drinking, added this- “You
know, sir, drinking drives away care,
and makes us forget whatever is disa
greeable; would not you allow a man to
drink for that reason?” Johnson replied,
Yes, if ho sat next you.”
In a recent ride to Peoria, says a west
ern editor, we discovered the following
placard upon a gate post:—“ for Sail a
too storry Hows And ben the Oner Xpex
to Go 2 callifornny.
Prentice says that the fault with the
female Yankee teaches who go westward
is, that instead of teaching other people’s
children, they soon get to teaching their
own!
Good.—Seeing upon his wife s shoul
der a large shawl pin, Mr. D. said: “In
the military, eh—got to be captain?” She
instantly remarked, pointing to a third
baby in her lap: “No, recruiting sorgeant
In the third infantry.”
A gentleman of the name of Pepper
had beeii several times thrown from a
spirited young horse, and was relating
the circumstance to a friend, and at the
same time observing that ho had never
given his horse a namo. “I think,” re
plied his friend, “you should call him
Pepper caster.
It was the saying of Sir Robert Peel,
“I never know a man to escape failure, in
either body or mind, who worked sovfcn
days in the weak.
A lady who was in the habit of visiting
the poor for benevolent purposes, took her
little daughter with her. The child saw,
heard and was interested. But there was
something which the child could not ex
actly make out. So, on the road home,
she said, “Mamma, when you are out vi
siting the poor, you always talk about
Jesus Christ to them, but you don’t talk
of him at home.”
A son of Galen, who was very angry
when any joke was passed on physicians,
once defended himself from raillery by
saying:
“I defy any person that I ever attend
ed, to accuse me of ignorance or neg
lect."
“That, you may do safely,” replied a
wag; “for you know, Doctor, dead men
tell no tales.”
Kkdaiks.—“I am so lame from the
railroad crush of last week, I can hardly
stand,” said a limping, hobbling, chap.—
“Well, then, I hope you intend to sue for
damages,” said his friend. “Damages 1
no, no; 1 have had damages enough by
them ; if I sue for anything, it will be for
