MORRISTOWN, TENN., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 1873.
Well, let him go, and let him stay
I do not mean to die ; , .
I guess hell find that I can live
Without him, if I try ;
He thought to frighten me with frown.
So terrible and black
Hall stay away a thousand years
Before I ask him back !
He said that I had acted wrong,
And foolishly beside;
I wont forget him after that
I wouldn't if I died.
If I waa wrongc what right had ha
To be ao cross with me 7
I know I'm not an angel quits
I don't pretend to be.
He had another sweetheart once,
And now whan we fall out,
He always say she was not cross.
And that she didn't pout.
It is enough to vex a saint
It's more than I can bear ;
I wish that girl of his was
Well, I don't care where.
He thinks that she was pretty, too
Was beautiful an good ;
I wonder if she'd get him back
Again, now, if she could t
1 know she would, and there she is
She lives almost in eight ;
And now its almost nine o'clock
Perhaps he's there to-night.
I'd almost write to him to come ;
But then I've said I won't,
I do not care so much, but she
Shan't ha e him if I don't
Besides, I know that I waa wrong,
And he was in the right ;
I guess I'll tell him ao and then
I wish he'd come to-night.
The following letter is worthy of
a careful perusal. It certainly
suggests some facts which deserve
the most serious reflection :
Did you or any of vour readers
ever try quitting tobacco? Well, if j
you did, you know how to pity a
feller that's been in the worse troub
le for the last week than he's had .
for many long year. And if you i
never did, you ought to try it once
just to be able to sympathise with ;
other folks. Tell you what it is, it's j
a leetle the hardest job I've under-
taken since I tried to make rails out 1

as to get clear of this infernal Oh !
I beg pardon ; this in in intolera- j

But I must tell you how I come '
to quit. You see, I had been using
the weed for nigh on to twenty
years, and had begun to think that I

Jim gave the mare a rake with the

Well, after a considerable time
here comes Jim and the doctor.
Well, Bill," says 1m, "what's tbe
matter?" "I don't know, doctor,"
says I. "I believe I've got the dys-

had to think that tiie doctor knowed
all about it; but I wouldn't promise
to quit. The doctor wasen't pleased
a bit. Howsomever, he gave me
some stuff to take that was mean
enough to make a sow wean her pigs
before they were a week old, but it
didn't do on bit of good. Thinks
I to myself, if I've got to have all
the rest of the diseases heart-burn
especially and take such truck as
this, Tm a goner sure! So, as I
couldn't get clear of the dyspepia,
and Betsy wouldn't let me off with
the physic, I concluded I'd quit the
Well, I made the resolution ; and
you know, when a man sets his head
to do a thing, it's half the battle
generally. I say generally, for this
time il wasen't so. I thought it
was a mighty task to say Fd quit ;
but it wasn't a circumstance ! No
matter how I would reason, the cra
ving was there, and there it would
stay. Needn't say a word about
logic ; I tell you it won't do at all
when this longing for tobacker is the
question. Just as well try to talk a
baby to sleep when its mammy's
been gone all day and it wants to
suck right bad as to think that argu
ment will do any good against the
love of tobacker. It takes strong
will and time to do it ! I could let
it alone ; for that thing never came
along that I couldn't let alone when
I resolved to ; but the appetite was
eternally wanting it. I have read
about a man chained to a rock and
a vulture turned on him to eat him
up. If he had some tobacker to
chaw, and didn't have some one to
say stop, he was better olf thau me.
Howsomever I consoled mj-self
that it would soon be proven that it
wasen't the tobacker, and then I
could go at it again. But, in spite
of all I could do, I couldn't help
feeling that the doctor must be right
for I never had the heartburn from
! the time I throwed away my last
, cfy.iv.'! I ate sweet potatoes (they

' but it wouldn't come. I tried fat
j pork, but I was all right. I even
! tried butter and sorghum, and that
wouldn't fetch it. So I just came to
i tbe conclusion that I wa3 all right
in my liver and was only diseased
j with tooacker ; and so I expect to i
I stay quit.
j As I suppose 3'ou will like to hear
how I git along. I'll write again be
