THE DEATH OF THE FLOWERS.
BY WILLIAM CULLEN DRYANT.
Tbi melancholy oyt are come, .
The saddest of the jeur; ...
Cf wailing winds and naked woods,
And meadows browa and sere.
Heaped in the hollows of the grove,
The withered leaves lie dead, ... -
- They rustle to the eddying pust,
And to the rabbit's tread ; . .
;- The robin and the wren hare flown.
And from the shrub the Jay ;
" ' And from the wood top calis the crow,
Through all the gloomy day.

, Where are the Bowers, the fair young flowers,
That lately sprang and stood
' In brighter 1'gat aDd softer airs,
- . . A beauteous sisterhood ? '
, ,. Alas ! they all are in their grave,
. Tie gentle race of flowers, -'-And
lyii.s in their lowly bed, ' . ,' .

"' The rain is fnllir.g here they lie,

The wild flower and the violet,
They perished lung ;
Auj the hi utr-rot m.d the orchis died
Auiid the sauuiier glow ;
But ou the hill the gol.len rod, . . ' .

When the sound of dropping nuts is heard,
Thonga all the trees are still.
And twinkle in the smoky light
The waters of the rill,
Theouth wind searches for the fiowere

In the cold moist earth we laid her,
When the forest cast the leaf,

From the LoatsTiHe Democrat of October 90.

conrersatioa between some Eepre.wntativeg
of the Border States nd the President ef the
United States. W have had a manuscript
copy of it at our disposal for some time, but
were not certain its publication was called for
by the progress of events. It is, however,
part of the history ot the time. It relates
: to a subject upon which the parties to the
conversation have no claim to secrets. Be
tides, the subject is disposed of. The reply
: of the Border States to the proposition of the
President oa the subject of iinancipation has
... been accepted by tha States they represent
ed as conclusive, s far as we can judge by
their ait; and the President appears to have
changed hi opinion, and yielded to the ra
- dicaU of bis party. Hi conversation does nct

MEMORANDUM OF CONVERSATION.
.1 rjEAH S:a : I called at the request of the
' President, to alc you to oome to the White
-. Hountt to-morrow, moruiug, ac nine o'clock,
'" u(J bring such of your colleagues as are in
--. - Washington, March 10, 18C2.
Yesterday on my re '.urn from church I
...found. Mr. Postmaster General Blair in my
room, waiting the above note, which he im
tnediately cuspf nded and verbally communi
. caieJ the Prwideut's invitation ; and stated
(Ll the Treiident's purpose was to have
,' tscme conversation with the Delegations of
' JJentw.fcy, Mitscuri, Maryland, Virginia and
Delaware, in explanation of his message of
-,iiie 6th instant;'-. '.'.''..V-' '.'..:'"
2' Tb's morning these delegations, or such of
them s were in town,- assembled at the
.White Houe at thcappoioied time, and after
some little delay were admhted to an' audi
ence. ' Mr. Leary and myself were the only
members from Maryland present, and, I think,
were the only members of the delegotion at
that time in the city. I know that Mr. Pcarce,
of the Senate, and Messrs. Webster and Cal
vert, of the House, were absent. . .
. After the usual salutations ' and we were
seated, the President said, in substance, that
he had invited us to meet him to have seme
conversation with us in explanation of his
message of the Gtb; that since he had sent it
in several of the gentlemen then present had
visited him, but had avoided any allusion to
the message, end he therefore inferred that
the import of the message had been misun
derstood, and was regarded as inimical to the
interests we represented; and he had resolv
ed he would talk with as, and disabuse our
minds of that erroneous opinion. "
' The President then disclaimed any intent
t injure the interests er wound the sensibili
ties of the Slave States. On the contrary,
his purpose was to protect the one and' re
spect the other; that we were engaged in a
terrible wasting and tedious war; immense
armies were in the field, and most continue
in the field as long as the war lasts; that
these armies must, of necessity, be brocght
into contact with slaves in the States we re
presented, and in other States as they ad
vanced ; that slaves would come to the camps
and continual irritation was kept up ; that he
was constantly annoyed by conflicting and
antagonistic complaints ; on the one side a
certain class complained if the slave was not
protected by the army ; persons were fre
quently found, who participating in these
view, acted in away unfriendly to the slave
holder; on the other hand slaveholders com
plained that their rights were interfered with,
their slaves induced to abscond and protected
n itlilu the lines, these complaints were nu
merous, kud and deep ; were a serious anno;-
ai.ee to him and embarrassing to the pro
gress of the war; that it kept alive a spirit
hostile to the Government in the States we
represented ; strengthened the hopes of the
Confederates that at some day the Brtrder
Stmes would unite with them, and thus tend
to prolong the war; and he was of opinion,
if this resolution should be adopted by Con
gress and accepted by our States, these caus
es of iirkaiioj and these hopes would be i
muved, and more would be accomplished to
wards shortening the war than could be hop
ed frm the greatest victory achieved by
Union armies ; that he made this proposition
iu good faiLh, and desired it to be accepted :
if at all, voluntarily, and in the same patriotic
spirit in which it was made ; that emancipa
tion was a subject exclusively under the con
trol of the States, and must be adopted or
rejected by each lor itself; that be did not
claim nor had this Government any right to
coerce them for that purpose ; that such wai
no part of his purpose in making this proposi
tion, and he wished it to be clearly under
stood ; that he did not expect us there to be
prepared to give him answer, but he hoped
we would take the subject into serious con
sideration ; confer with one another, and then
take such course as we felt our duty and the
interests of our constituents required of as.
Mr. Noell, of Missouri, said that in his
State Slavery was not considered a perman
ent institution ; that natural causes were there
in e Deration which would,, at no distant day,
extinguish it, and he did not think that this
proposition was necessary for that ; and, be
sides that be and his friends felt solicitous as
to the message on account of the different
constructions which the resolution and mes
sage bad received. The New York Tribune
was for it, and understood it to mean that we
must accept gradual emancipation according
to this plan suggested, or get something
The President replied, he must not be ex
pected to quarrel with the New York Trib
une before the right time ; he hoped never to
have to do it; he would not anticipate events.
In respect to emancipation in Missouri, be
said that what had been observed by Mr.
Noell was probably true, but the operation of
these natural causes had not prevented the
irritating conduct to which he had referred,
or destroyed the hopes of the Confederates
that Missouri would at some time range her
self alongside of them, which in his judg
ment the passage of this resolution by Con'
gress and its acceptance by Missouri would
Mr. Crisfield, of Mayland, asked what would
be the effect of the refusal of the State to accept
this proposal, and desired to know if the
Presi tent looked to any policy beyoud the
acceptance or rejection of his scheme. . -
The President replied that he bad no de
signs beyond the action ef the States on this
particular subject. He should lament their
refusal t accept it, but he had no designs be
yond t'.eir refusal of iV ' ' ' '
Mr. MenzieB, of Kentucky, inquired if the
President though there was any power except
in the Stales themselres to carry cut his
scheme cf enwricipalion. . .
The President replied he thought there
culd not be. He then went off into a course
of remark not qualifying the foregoing de
claration nor material to be repeated to a just
understanding of his meaning. ... .: t
Mr. Crisfield said be did not think the peo
ple of Maryland looked upon slavery as a
permanent institution ; and lie did not know
that they would be very reluctaut to give it
up if provision was made to meet the loss,
and they eould be rid of the race ; but they
did not like to be coerced into emancipation,
either by the direct action of the Govern
ment or by indirection, as through the eman
cipation of slaves in this District, or the con
fiscation of. Southern property as now threat
ened ; and he thought before they would con
sent to consider this proposition they would
require to be informed on these points.
The President replied that, " unless be was
expelied by the act of God or the Confeder'
ate armies, he should occupy that house for
three years, and as long as he remained there
Maryland had nothing to fear, either for her
institution or her interests, on the poiuta re
Mr. Crisfield immediately added : " Mr.
President, ' it what you now say could be
heard by the beople of Maryland they would
consider your proposition with a much better
feeling- than I fear without it they will be in
clined to do.",- ' ; , '
' The President. " That ( meaning a publi
cation of what he said) will not do; it would
force me into a quarrel before the proper
time ;" and, again intimating, as he had be
fore done, that a quarrel with the " Greeley
faction" was impending, be said "he did not
wish to encounter it before the proper time,
nor at all il it could be avoided." -"'
Governor Wickliffe, of Zy., then asked him
respecting the constitutionality of his scheme.
'. The President replied : " Aa you may sup
pose, I have considered that ; and the proposi
tion now submitted does not encounter any
constitutional difficulty. It proposes simply
to co-operate with any State by giving such
State pecuniary aid ; and he thought that the
resolution, as proposed by him, would be con
sidered rather as the expression of a senti
ment than as involving any constitutional
question." - r .,
Mr. Hall, of Mo., thought that if tli'13 pro
position was adopted at all it should be by
the votes of the Free States, and come as 'a
proposition from them to the Slave States, af
fording them an inducement to put aside this
suhject of discord : that it ought not to be ex
pected that members representing slavehold
ing constituencies botild declare at once, and
in advance of any proposition to them, for
the emancipation of slavery.
The President said he saw and felt the force
of the objection ; it was a fearful responsibili
ty, and every gentleman must do as he thought
best : that he did not know how this scheme
was received by the members from the Free
States ; some of them had spoken to him
and received it kindly ; but for the most part
they were as reserved and chary as we had
been, and he could not tell how they would
vote. And in reply to some expression of
Mr. Hall as to his own opinion regarding
slavery, he said he did not pretend to disguise
his anti-slavery feeling; that he thought it
was wrong and should continue to think so;
but that was not the question we han to deal
with now. Slavery existed, and that, too, as
well by the act of the North as of the South
and in any scheme to get rid of it, the North,
as well as the South, was morally bound to
do its full and equal share. He thought the
institution wrong, and ought never to have
existed ; but yet be recognized the rights of
property which had grown out of it, and
would I respect those rights as fully as simi
lar rights in any other property ; that proper
ty can exist, and does legally exist He
thought such a law wrong, but rights of prop
erty resulting must be respected ; he would
get rid of the odious law, not by violating
the right, but by encouraging the proposition
and offering inducements to give it up.
Here the interview, so tar as this subject is
concerned, terminated by Mr. Crittenden's
assuring the President that, whatever might
be our final action, we all thought him solely
moved by a high patriotism and sincere devo
tion to the happiness and glory of his country;
and with the conviction we should consider
respectfully the important suggestions he had
made. ' ;
: After some conversation on the current
war news, we retired, and I immediately
proceeded to my room and wrote out this
paper. J. W. Cmsfield.
We were present at the interview discrib
ed in the foregoing paper of Mr. Crisfield, and
wa certify that the substance of what passed
on the occasion is in the paper faithfully and
fully given.' - - J. W. Menzies,

A Leaf of Current History.
. From the ITatlonal Intelligencer of October 30.
Th reader will find in another part of to
doy's Intelligencer a copy of a paper drawn
up by the Hon. J. W. Crisfield, of Maryland,
and authenticated by the signatures of Messrs.
Menzies, Crittenden, and Mallory, of Ken
tucky, which has for its objest to give a de
tailed report of an interesting interview had
on the 10th of March last, at the Executive
Mansion, between the President of the Uni
ted States and certain Representatives from
the Border Slaveholding States. . This inter
view, brought about by invitation of the Presi
dent, had relation, it will be seen, to the pur
port and meaning of the proposition contain
ed in the special message communicated to
Congress by Mr. Liucoln on the 6th of March
Last, recommending the passage of a joint
resolution declaring " that the United States,
in order to co-operate with any 8tate which
may adopt the gradual abolishment of slavery,
will give to such State pecuniary aid, to be
used in its direction, to compensate it for the
inconvenience, public 'and private, produced
by such change of system."
In this conversation, as will appear from
the ' memorandum, the President unfolded to
such of the members of Congress from the
Border States as were present on his invita
tion, the views of public policy which had
dictated that recommendation, and at the
same time hs took the opportunity to inti-
mate the considerations of the duty which
might be expected to guide his conduct in
certain conjunctures arising from political
complications, as also in respect to certain
measures as to which his interlocutors con
fessed some solicitude.
Now that this found its way to the public,
(aa we must presume with the authority of
its signers,) it may not be improper for us to
say that the memorandum, at the time of its
composition, was confidentially communicat
ed to the editors of thi3 paper for our perusa',
that we might have the advantage of possess
ing an authoritive and authentic exposition
of the President's emancipition message of
March last, and of the motives under which
that message was penned, as also of the views
of policy by which the President proposed
in the future to guide his steps under the dif
ficulties and embarrassments to which he was
subjected in the matter of slavery and its
relations. ' ,
We need not say that this exposition of
the President's views and of his contingent
purposes, as announced by him at the date,
con Rimed us in the impressions we had deriv
ed from the special message itself, without
this Presidential commentary, though the
circumstances under which we were favored
with access to the paper forbade us at the
time to make any use of its contents. Nor
should we have thought it proper to make any
reference even to the existence of such a
document if its publication in another quar
ter had not now made it a part of the history
of the anomalous times though which our
country is passing. The reader, after a per
usal of the paper in question, will readily un
derstand that our surprise at the " new poli
cy" inaugurated undi r the President's eman
cipation proclamation of last September 22d
was not diminished by our knowledge of the
view and considerations which he had so
frankly announced on the occasion of the con
reis t on recited in the memorandum now
"Give this to Mother."
Tns following from the New York Post
presents a case which only war can furnish.
Few will be able to read it without' a rising
tear: . -
On the bloody field of Manassas, a few
weeks ago, with a gasp and a moan, were
these words whispered from the white lips of
a heroic soldier, ahe drew from ins bosom a
locket and passed the revered momento into
the hands of a comrade near. Those loving
lips never moved again to tell his name or
home; instantly he fell back dead, and a no
ble spirit passed into a world free from care
He was of the Tenth New York Volunteers,
National Zouaves. Safe from death, although
disabled, the brave soldier, named Ferguson,
who received this trust, has returned to his
home, and fulfills his sacred legacy as best he
may. The little picture hangs in the window
of 945 Broadway, under the above inscription.
Oh, what a depth of tenderness and pathos in
these few words " Give this to mother I"
. A correspondent of an eastern paper writes
For the past two weeks the military authori
ties have been very strict, and, as no person
is permitted to leave the city who is not loyal,
necessarily a vast amount of questioning takes
place at the Provost Marshal's office. A few
days ago a tall, dejected-looking, middle-aged
man made his appearance before Col. Gillem
and solicited a pass. The first question put
bj the Colonel was,
" Are you a loyal man ?". . .
" Well," said the mysterious-looking solici
tor, " I expect I am." , -
"You expect you are; don't yon know
whether you are a Union man or not ?"
"I expect; I don't know, sir."
The appearance of the man and his man
ner ef conversation rather non-plussed Colo
nel Gillem, who continued, however :
" Where do you wish to go, sir ?".
"I want to go home."
" Where is your home ?"
"In East Tennessee."
" When did you arrive in this city ?"
" Several years ago."
"Where were you at the commencement
the rebellion, sir?"
"In this city."
" Did you ever hear Andy Ewing make any
of his speeches?" .
" Have you ever been in the rebel army ?"
. "No, sir."-
" Do you ever intend to take up arms against
the Government of the United States ?"
"No, sir." ' '
" Have yon a family in East Tennessee,
" Yes, sir 4 wife and two daughters.".
" How long is it since you have seen your
" Ten years." : . ... .
"Ten years Where have you been du
ring all that time ?"
"In the State prison, sir."
." Mr. Bent," said the Colonel, turning to
one of his clerks, "give this man a pass to
East Tennessee." ' ' 1 !- ' ' 11
" Good, likely young negroes" used to sell
these part's, a few years ago, at twelve hun
dred dollars apiece and upwards. Sm-e the
rebellion, however, that species of livf stock
has fearfully fallen. Last Monday Sheri f Selb
yett went to the house of a gentleman resi
ding npon the Franklin Pike, to seize proper
ty equivalent to a debt of fifteen hundred dol
lars, and was in the act of picking out the
sixth " nigger," when his owner exclaimed,
"for God's sake, Selbyett, ain't niggers worth
any more than chicken? ?' . - '"
Another Blow for the Union.
WASHINGTON, D. C. October 4th, 1862.
Dear Vanity : A deputation of my towns
people, (town of Bellona, N. Y.,) respectable
in character and number, feeling great concern
lest they should be drafted the 10th of this
month, formally called upon me'a few days
since, and requested me to go to Washington
and intercede with the President to prevent,
if possible, so unwelcome a proceeding as the
enforcement of the threatened diaft. Know
ing that the President had for months been
subjected to " great pressure," I felt consider
able delicacy about undertaking the mission,
and thus expressed myself; but so earnestly
was I besought by my neighbors, that at
length I yielded, and came on here, where I
arrived this morning. I forthwith called upon
the Presedont, who received nie kindly we
are old acquaintances said he was glad to
see me, that he was troubled to death about
the war, and wanted me to give him my views
upon the whole subject. . . I thereupon told
him the object of my visit, and further stated
that I had matured a plan which, if carried
out, would in my opinion, relieve him of all
embarrassment. He urged me to disclose it
I did so. He approved it, and directed me to
embody it in a proclamation lorm lor his sig
nature, which I did as follows:
proclamation by the president:
i Whereas, I, Abraham LincolnPresident of
the United States ot America, did, on the22d
day of September, 18G2, iasue my proclama
tion in substance declaring free the slaves of
all persons in arms against the Government,
unless such persons should lay down their
arms, etc.; and
Whereas, such persons have not laid down
their arms, but,! on the contrary, " wickedly
persist in carrying on this unholy war, to the
great loss in blood and valuable lives of our
loyal men : .. .
. Now. therefore, to avoid calling more men
into the field to prevent further loss of blood
and life, and to end this unholy rebellion, I
do hereby declare a!f persons who shall in any
manner be connected with the army of the
so-called Confederate States, on the morning
of the tenth day of October instant, Prisoners
of War to the army of the United States.
And I further order that this proclamation
shall be read at the head of each regiment in
the so-called Confederate army, forthwith.
Done at the City of Washington this 4th
day of October, Anno Domini 1852, and of our
independence the eighty-seventh.
' As the President finished signing this paper,
he seized my hand in both of his, and with
moistened eyes, in a voice tremulous with
emotion, he said: "My dear Mr. Emtihed,
you have relieved me from great tribulation,
and our beloved country from all the honor
ef civil war. My proclamation extinguished
the cause of the war. Youre for so I must
call it has gone further, and ended up the war.
I shall have great trouble in satisfying Mr.
Greeley with this step ; but, inasmuch as I
gave way to him and issued the emancipation
proclamation, it is his turn to give me my
way in this."
After some further conversation, the Presi
dent directed me to give the proclamation the
greatest possible circulation. I suggested
Vanity Fair as the best medium. He assert
ed. I then bade him goodbye, and hastened
to send you this communication.
Yours truly, Earxkst Emtihed.
The New York Post of Tuesday last gives
election incidents in that city. Here are
some specemens which occurred in the 1st
The polling places in this ward were in
Depeyster, Broad and Greenwhich streets, at
the same places occupied on former occasions.
They were inostly drinking saloons where
business was suspended for the day, all de
canters and tumblers removed and the coun
ters protected by a rough covering of un
The voters in this ward were almost exclu
sively our adopted citizens, and, with that
happy mingling of nationalities so character
istic ot New York society, the German vot
ers were as usual attended t by Irish clerks
and inspectors. At one of the polk a vener
able white-haired Teuton approach the ballot
boxes and offered his vote.
" Live in the district ?" said the dapper
" Eleffen years," was the reply.
Voted here last eliction ?"
"Where do you reside?' .
"Eleffen years." .,
"I mane where is ye're afther Iivin ?"
" Eleffen years."
"Get away wid yer" (with a threatening
" I wansh to vote."
" Where do you live ?" ' j
" Eleffen vears."
" Your name's not down on this list." - i
Here the venerable Teuton, struck with a j
fresh ieda, aud, perhaps, having a glimmer
ing that he was not pefrectly understood,
opened a new battery. So he said, " Yaw,"
with a lively affirmative movement of the
head. " ' '
" What do ye mane ?"
" Do yer reside iu" this district, ould man,
or don't yer ?" "' ;
"Yawl':.. .. : ,
"That's right. Do you vote for Wads
worth or Seymour ?"
"We must swear you."" '
So they swore the Teuton, and a German
coining up terved as interpreter during the
rest of the transaction'. ' Il appeared that the
old man had lived long enougli in the district,
but had Cot voted before for elevenv years.
The Celtic clerk spoke a one having au
thority and not as a scribe. He addressed
peoplo by their Christian names, and if Will
iam B. Astor had; voted there would have
asked, "Well, William, where 'is' it ye're" af
ther livin." ' He was greatly incensed be
cause a Polish voter said his name was Pitz
schzky. 'And a brother of the unpronounce
able added to his ire by again repeating the
remarkale surname. : 5 i , .
"Pitz what's-his-name votes the howl,"
he shouted, as the voters left. Mr, Froligh,
however, restored him to good Jemper. " Mr.
Frolic, is it ? And that's a good name enough,
after ye Pitzkritzkies." ' ' ' . , '
The voting in the First ward was not very
heavy during the early part of the morning.
There was considerable feeling, but little an
gry discussion. Walbridge tickets were plen
ty, and the opponents of Ben. Wood were
hard to work in favor of Hiram. 1
An Oldfashioned Steeple-Chaos.
PERILLS OF THE LIMERICK HACKS.
The English papers give appalling accounts
of the perils of a steeple chascin Ireland, one
of those old-fas'uioned break-neck pastimes
having just taken place at Limerick. : The
Times says : . . . :
" The Limerick Tradesmen's Plate, four
aiiles, Steeple-chase Course, was die great
event of the day, the horses entered being,
with" few exceptions, prize-winners. The
start, it is related, was correct and beautiful ;
the riders dashed forward in high spirits, all
with good feeling and in the best humor. The-matter-ofrfact
style of the writer sets off to
advantage the incidents which followed.
Without seeming to know that he is descri
bing anything to which the straitlaced might
object, and with evidently a keen enjoyment
of the race itself, relates how Vesta kept the
lead, to the satisfaction of her backern, until
the rider (Captain McCrcight) got ' a tremen
dous fall, which incapacitated hin from riding
during the remainder of the day.' At the
fourth fence Gleudinane got a dreadful fall;
the rider, Mr. Russell, full also, and received,
we regret to state, serious injuries, such as are
believed to be dangerous. Glondiuaiie's back
was broken. Bendemere fell, rolling ever the
rider, Mr. Falkner, ' who sustained spinal in
jury to some extent.,' and was conveyed to
the weighing room in an exhausted state.
Palermo fell, and the rider, Mr. Long, receiv
ed slight injuries in the leg, from which, we
are happy to learn, 'it is expected he will
soon recover.' . ' Merrimac fell, and received
mortal injuries.'. ' Roa-aika also fell ; Anoy-
ma fell, and the rider (ilrr Thompson) was
rescned from a dangerous position by Mr.
Shannon.' In the end Kate Fisher won, amid

An Elephant on a Bender.
The well known elephant Hannibal, belong
ing to- Van Amburgh & Co.'s Menagerie, is
celebrated not only for his enormous siit, (ha
the largest animal of his species either in
Europe or Ameriea,) bat also for Lis humor
ous erploits of an eccentric character, many
which have found their way hto print. Aa
incident which occurred some years Ago in
Pitubargli, shows tht.,ani elephant can be)
susceptible to- the influences, both of the ten
der passion and whiskey, , , Hjnnibal had
been spendir-g the winter in a large ware
house on the banks ot th atn where two
menageries had taken up their winter quar
ters. Hence, he was thrown into- the society
geEtte a lady elephant named Queea Ann,
and aa a natural result, a warm attachment
goon- grew np between them. Eannibal'a
teraier feelings were apparently fully recipro
cated, aud aa- unsophisticated p;r of youthful
lovers were more unreserved in their tletaou
strations of mutual affection than these desper
ately enamored creatures of the elephantina
But, alas, the course of true love never
ran smooth; and when spring came tie
mercenary menagerie men seperated tha fond
couple, sending Queen Ann off to be exhibit
ed at a quarter a beady and leaving Hannibal
prc-y to reflection, grief and indignation.
The 6ubject of our b'ttle story is not remark
able ior perfect control of his temper, and this
was probably the most severe trial it had ever
received. He became furious in the extrojef
and endeavored to kill his keeper but fortu
nately failed in the attempt Then he refused
food, and seemed determined to commit
suicide by starvation. 1 At this juncture, .his
keeper reeollecud that under similar circum
stances, he had onee found great consolation
rye whisky, and determined to try its e
feet upon his charge. Hannibul took to th
beverage with avidity, still refusing, however,
eat, and. swallowed, it by the bucket full
whenever it was offered to bim. ' In th
course ef eight or ten days, the remedy began
have its effect, a peculiar twinkle of his di
minutive pyes plainly evidencing that he bad
begun to feel his rye. On the twelfth .day,
with a tremendous effort, he burst loose from
fastings, aud staggered forth into the body
the building, as drunk as a beast .. A scn
great excitement followed. The lions, ti
gers, hyenas and other animals clashed against
the bars of their cnj;u.s, uttering terrific criea
fright, and the story that the elephant waa
loose, -spreading through the city, a crowd of
several thousand people was soon gathered
around- the warehouse. Had Hannibal felt
disposed he might then hava wrought ia
calculatable mischief; but instead, he content
ed himself with reeling about en his hind legs,
huge bulk raised in the air, and required
only a battered hat upon his bead, and a pipe
stork in his mouth, to furnish a painter 'with
incomparable model for a picture of ani
mal enjoyment. He was soon properly se
cured, all reccollection of bis sweetheart hav
ing, to all appearances, been drowned is the
whisky which he had swallowed. . Whether,
not, hi spree was followed, by a headache,
cannot say. , We presume it Wa, as be
not been known to indulge in the ardent
siuce ; indeed, it is said, though we will not
vouch for the truth of the story, that when in
Pittsburg, a few weeks since, be refused to
drink a barrel of river water which was offer
ed him became it was " Pure Monocgahala."
