NOT BY THOMAS CAMPBELL. .' THE PETTICOAT CATASTROPHE. I dreamed a dream the other night, , When evrrvthimr una Imuiio.i Hn.i ut;u Which made every hair stand etraigUt with iniit, Stiff as tlio porcupine's Inst quill. Methougbt that petticoat bnd grown To uch a Vast aud litoiiHtrotis size, -That there wag room for them tilone And none for mini beneath the skies. The beats and every creeping thinir Had died. The flowers bloomed no more, The grtiRa and tender herbs of ,ii iii(r Were withered on the desert shore j Ten million leagues of crinoline. , ' Stretched over all like a funeral pull; 1 Aud on the en! J and cheerless scene, The suu'g warm raj g could never fall. X)n Arrarat's cloiid-ctirtnined pek, The last man stood with pallied face, Sick, trembling, weary, worn and weak f .vSad reniuaiit of a smothering race, In vain alas ! poor man ! in vain J i , llifi footsteps sonjiht that rest of old, . Ifor clouds t skirts soon tilled the plain, . -, . ! Aud hid the mountain in their fold. v . Still bisgcr grew those Pjiheres of white, Until they reached the summit high, ; AikI streaun.'d above the wretched wight, ,; Like snowy banners in tho sky. . .The man looked o'er the precipice, "Make way for petticoats !" he cried ; And plunging down the dark abvss, Made way for petticoats and" died. . - Sut Lovengood's Daddy Acting Hoss. ""Hold tht ero lioss clown to. the yearth." ; , " lie's spreaJing liis sail-fly now." " Keep him whar Le is." Thoso and like expressions were ad dressed to a queer looking, long legged, short-bodied, white-haired, hog-tved, fun ny sort of a genius, fresh from some sec- lana clothing store, and mounted on " Tarpole," a liic-tailed, long, poor horse, and enveloped all over in a perfect net work of bridle reins, scuppers, martin gales, straps, cirxingles and red ferret ting, who hadjeined up in front of Pat Nack's grocer', among a crowd of wild mountaineers, full of fight and bad whis ky. . - ," I say, you darned ash cats, jistkeep your .'shorts on, will you? You never seed a raal horse till I rid up. Tarpole i tiext to tho best horse that ever shelled nubbins, and he's dead as a still worm, jfcor old Tickey Tail." t , " What killed him, Sut ?" said an anx ious inquirer. "Why, nothin, you tarnation fool j he jist'died, standing up at that. Warn't that good pluck ? Froze stiff ! no, not adzactly, but starved fust and then frozo afterwards, so stiff that when dad and me pushed him over, he just stuck out so (spreading arms and legs,) like a carpen ter's bench, and wo. waited seventeen days for him.to thaw, afore we could skin him. Well thar was dad and me, (counting his fingers) dad an' me ,Sal an' Jake fool Jake we used to call him for short an' Thineas, an' Simeon, an' Jo nas, an' Charaletteann, an' Cullina, an' :Cashus Henry Clay, an' Noah Dan, an' Cathrino second, an' Cledpatry Antany, and Jano Lind, an' Tom Bullion, the ba by, an' the prospect, an' inarm herself, all left .without any horse to crop with. That was a nice mess for a 'spectab'e family to be slashed about in, wasn't it? I declare if I didn't feel like stealin' a I horse sometimes. Well, we waited and , rested, and waited onto strawberry time, . hoping some stray horse mout come along, ' but dog my cats ef any sich luck as that " ever comes whar dad is, he's so drotted . mean, an' lazy, an' savage, an' ugly, an' rtryin'. Well, one nite, dad ho lay awake all pito, a snorin an' jollin'.an' a whisperin' at niarni ; an next mornin says ho : Sut, I'll tell you what we'll do ; I'll - bo boss myself, an' pull tho plow, while you drive me, and we'll break up corn ground, aud then, the old quilt (that's marm) and tho brats kin ilaut or let alone, jist as they please." . c :, So out wo goes to the papaw, au' peel ed a right smart chance of bark, and marm and mo for dad, and they become jiim mightily, then ho would have a bri dle so I gits an old umbrella what 1 found it's a little piece iron, sorter liko ! lihto a pitchfork, ye know an' wo bent 1 and twisted it sorter into bridlrj bitKhapc, (dad want'd it curb, as ho hadn't worked for some time, and must sorter fcel his oats and go to cavortin.) Well, when .we got the bridle all fixed on dad, be chomped his bit jist liko a raal hoss, (ho always was a most complicated old fool, ' enyhow, and marm allers said so when " he warn't about,) then I put on the gears, au' out dad au' I goes to tho field; I a leadin' dad by the bridle, and totin' the gopher plow on my liaok. " When we come to tho fence, I let down a gap; that made dad mad; ho wanted to jump tho fence on all fours, lioss way. 1 hitched linn into the go pher, and away he went, dad leanin' for ward to his pullin' right peart j and wo made sharp plowing dad goin' right over the bushes an sprouts samo ns a raal boss, the only difference is ho went on two legs, l'rcsfiitly wo conic to a sas safras patch, and dad, to act up his char actor as a boss, bulged square up to it, and tore down a hornet's nest nigh as lug as a boss head, and all the tribe kiv ercd him rite strate. Ho rared and kick ed enco or twice, and fotched a squeal worse nor nry horse in the deestrlet, an soi into ruiiniir a wav jist as natural as ever vou seed. " 1 let go the plow and hollered woa dad, won, hut ye might as well said woa to a locomotive. Jcwhillikins ! how he run. When ho came to a bush ho'd clear it, gopher and all ; pr'aps ho tho't there mout bo another settlement of bald hor nets in it, and that it was safer to go over than thru' an' quicker dun. Every now and then he'd paw one side of his head with fust one fore leg and then tother then he'd gin himself an open-handed slap, that sounded like a wagon whip, and runnin' all the time and carryin' that gopher jist about as fast and high from the yearth as ever a gopher was carried, I swar. When ho cum to the fence he busted rito thru it, taring nigh into seven panels, scatterin' and breakin' tho rails mightily ; and hero ho left the gopher, gears, swingletree's and klivis, all mixed up, not wutli a dura : most of his shirt stuck to tho broken end of a splintered rail, and nigh unto a pint o' hornets staid with the shirt, a stingm' it all over tho balance on 'em about a gallon and a half, kept on with dad. He seemed to run jist adzactly as fast as a hornet-could fly, for it wus the tightest race J ever did see j down thru tho grass they all went, the hornets sorter makin' it look liko smoke all around dads head, and he with no thin on but the bridle, and nigh onto a yard o' plow line sailin' behind him. I seed he was aiinin' for the swiniin' hole in the creek, whar the bluff is over twen ty feet perpendicular to the water, and it's nigh onto ten feet deep. To keep up his character as ? boss, when he got to the bluff he jist' leaped off, or rather he jist kept on riinnin'. Now right thar, boys, he overdid the thing, if that wus what he was arter, for lhar's nary hoss ever foaldod dr.rned fool enough to leap over sicu a i iace: a mule mout have done it, but dad warn't acting mule. I crept up to the edge and looked over. Thar was old dad's bald head, for all tho world like a peeled ingun, a bobbin' up and down, and tho hornets a sailin' and circlin' round, turkey-buzzard fashion, and every once in a while, one, and some times ten 'ud make a dip at dad'.s head. He kept up a peart dodgin' under, some times they'd hit him and sometimes they'd hit the water, and the water was kivered with drowned hornets. What on yearth are vou doin' thar, dad ?' sav si. Don't (dip) you seo these infernal varmints (dip) onto me ?' hat, sed I. ' Them are boss nies thar; yo ain't really 'afeard of them, aro ye?' "' Hoss flies V sed dad; ' tho're ralo (dip) giucwiiie bald hornets, you (dip) in fernal cuss.' '"Well, dad, you'll have, to stay thar till nite, aud arter they go to roost, you come homo and I'll feed you.' " And knowig' dad's unmodified natur, I broke from them parts and sorter cum to the copper mines. 1 staid hid about till next afternoon, when I seed a fellow traveling, and sed I : ' What was goin' on at the cabin this side of tho creek, when you cum passed it V . " ' Why, nothin' much, only a man was sittin' in the door with nary shirt on, and a woman was greasiu' his back and arms, and his head wus about as big as a ten gallon keg, and he hadn't the fuss sign of an eyo all smooth.' " ' That man's my dad,' sod I. " Been much fitcn in this neighbor hood lately ?" sed the traveler, dryly. " ' Nun wuth speakin' of personally or perticularlyj sed I. ." Now, boys, 1 haint seed dad since, and would bo afeard to meet him in tho next ten years. Let's drink." Xord Cure for Lore. A new and amusing cure for love has lately been found effective in a fashionable Parisian faubourg. The son of a wealthy noble man became enamored of his father's concierge, (door porter,) and determined to marry her. The aristocratic, papa op posed ; but moved at last by the despair of his son, gave his consent with tho pro viso that tho smitten youth should go to sea tor twelve months before the marriage, Shortly after his departure, the father, who had previously observed a tendency to embonpoint in the young intended, took her under his especial charge, gave her every kind of the most nourishing and succulent food and good wines, and for bade her to take exercise as unbecoming his future daughter, and, in fact, stall-fed to such an extent, that when the enamored swain returned from his year's voyage, ho was horrified to find, instead of the slender, elegant girl he left, an immen sely fat woman, as big as two Albonis rolled into one. Of course, tho ruse was successful, and the unfortunate victim of good cheer has been pensioned off. IHToAnow how bad you are, you must become poor; and to know how bad other people are, you must become rich. Many a man thinks it is virtue that keeps him from turning rascal, when it is only a full stomach.

Five-Dollar Engraving to Ever Subscriber. THE (5REAT LIBRARY OFFER. Agents (letting Rich ! I The union of Emerson's Magazine and Put nam's Monthly, has given to the consolidated work a circulation second to but one similar pub lication in the eonntrv, and has secured for it a combination of literary aud artistic talent prohah- lv unrivaled by anv other magazine in the world. During the fir.-it month, the sale iu the trade and demand from subscribers exceeded !)0,000 copies, and the uumhers already issued ot the consolnlat 1 work are universally conceded to have sur passed, lit the richness ot (heir let entry contents, aud the beaut' and nrotusettess ot their pictorial illustrations, any magazine ever More lssueo: from the American press. Encouraged hv these evidence ot lavor, the publisher have determin ed to commence the new volume iu January with still additional attractions, and to offer such in- liiceiiients to subscribers as cannot fail to place it, iu circulation, at the head of Aim-ricni Maga zines. W ita tins view thev now announce the following programc. They have pun based that superb and costly steel-plate entrraving, "THE LAST SlTl'F.i;," ami will present a coiiv ol it to cm'I'v lliree-dol- lar subscriber tor the year l.-W. It waseugrav cd at?a eiit of over $5,000, by the late celebrat ed A. L. Dick, from the original of 1'aphael Mor gan, after Leonardo Da yinci, and is the largest steel-plate engraving ever executed iu this coun try, being three times the size of the ordinary three-dollar engravings. The first impressions of this engraving are held at .f 10, Mini it was the intention ot the artist that none of the engravings should ever be offer ed for a less sum than !.", being richly worth that amount. Thus every three-dollar subscriber will receive the Magazine one year cheap at $:t and this splendid engraving, richly worih ; thus getting for the value of JjH. We shall commence striking off the engravings immediately, yet it can hardly be expected that impressions of so large a plate can lie taken as fast as they can be called for by subscribers. We shall, therefore, furnish them in the order in which subscriptions are rej-eived. Those who desire to obtain their engravings early, and from the first impressions, should send in their subscriptions without delay. The engraving can be sent on rollers, by mail, or in any manner, as subscribers shall order. ift-JOHK) IN WORKS OF A HT. In addition to the superb engravings of " THE LAST SITI'ER," which will be presented to every three-dollar subsciher for lrW, the polish ers have completed arrangement for the distri bution, on the V5th day of December, K;s, of a series of splendid works of art, consisting of one hundred rich and rare Oil JVuitiugs, valued at from $100 to $1,(100 each. Also, a,()(lO magiti cenf IStecl-l'late Engravings, worth from $3 to $5 each, and 1,000 choice Holliday Uooks, worth from $1 to $5 each; making, in all, over THREE THOrSAN I ) 0 1 FTS, worth TWENTY Tl IOU SAN'D DOLLARS.

YOC WILL ALSO RECEIVE WITH THE FIRST COPY A NUMBERED SUBSCRIPTION RE CEIPT ENTITLING YOU TO THE ENGRA VING OF "THE LAST SUITER." and a chance to draw one of these " Three Thousand Prizes." REASON'S WHY YOU SHOULD SU DSCRIIlE FOR EMERSON'S MAGAZINE. FOR 1858. First : Because its literary conteuts will, dur ing the year, embrace contributions from over one hundred different writers and thinkers, num bering among them the most distinguished of American authors. Second : Because its editorial departments, "Our Studio," "Our Window," and "Our Olio," will each be conducted by au able editor and it will surpass, in the variety and richness of its editorial contents, any other magazine. Third : llecause it will contain, during the year, nearly six hundred original pictorial illus trations from designs by the first American ar tists. Fourth ; Because for the sum of $3 you will receive this splendid monthly, more richly worth that sum than any other magazine: and the su perb engraving of " Tlie Last Supper," worth $5. Fifth: Because you will very likely draw one of the three thousand prizes to be distributed on the iiolh dav of December, 1858 perhaps one that is worth $1,000. Notwithstanding that these extraordinary in ducements can hardly fail to accomplish the ob jects ot the publisher without further efforts, yet they have determined to continue through the year " THE GREAT LIBRARY OFFER. To any jiersou who will get up a club of twenty-four subscribers, either at one or more post offices, we will present a splendid Library, con sisting of over F orty Large Hound Volumes, cm bracing the most iwipular works in the market. The club may be formed at the club price, $2 a year, without the engraving, or at the full price, with the engraving of the Last Supper to each subscriber. List aud description of the Library, and specimen copy of the Magazine, will be forwarded on receipt of 25 cents. Over tfOO Libraries, or 8,000 volumes, have already been distributed in accordance with this offer, and we should be glad of an opportunity to furnish a Li brary to every clergyman, to every rc hool teacher, or to gome one at every post-office in the country. MAKING MONEY'. The success which our agents are meeting with is almost astonishing. Among the many eviden ces of this fact, we present the following from one of our agents already iu the field : " I have now been at work ranvasiing on your Magazine one week, and am delighted with the business. It is different from canvassing for any thing else I ever tried. I am cure to get a sub scriber in eve.iv family where they can rake tt- I gether three dollars. 1 am never received with HARNESS, ARS, WHIPS, of various kinds, MED- indifference anywhere, for the first thing I do is to unroll my engraving before I let anybody know what I am after, and thus I get theni interested before they know what a splendid offer I am go ing to make them. Sometimes they ask my price for the engraving and 1 tell them $, aud when 1 offer them the engraving and Magazine one year for three dollars they are perfectly astonished. 1 did not get to going well tor the first two or three day: The 1st day I got The SJd day I gut The 3d day I got The 4lh dav I got The 5th day I got The o'th day I got First week I shall do much better engraving that does the 2 subscribers. 7 subscribers. , (i subscribers. .... 13 subscribers. !) subscribes. .... 17 subscribers. ... .54 subscribers, next week.

Knowing the expense and hazard incident to the establishment of a new paper, we have been slow in commencing our contemplated enterprise. We have, however, consummated arrangements which place the paper beyond the reai b .f mm. fingcneies : the first number will, therefore, be issued on the 1st day of January, 1858. It may seem presumptuous in in to add another to the already respectable number of paper now published iu this city, but beleiving that Mem phis is destined to be one of the largest ami most important cities in the South, and that we can iscover some ground that has not vet been oc cupied, we embark in the experiment with every issiiraiice that success will ultimately crowu the labor, toil ami capital we are prepared to lavish upon the enterprise. We come, not at the rival, b i tt as the co-laborer, of the old established piess- s in all that concerns the growth and prosperity of the city and community generally. We shall bring to the task an energy that will never weary, au experience of many years, und as we have all xtended auiiaiiitauce in this and the adjoining States, it is our confident expectation to give the paper a circulation equal to any between Louis ville and New Orleans. We are fully aware that those generally mak ing the largest promises are guilty of the poorest performances : we therefore preler that the read- r should toriti Ins opinion ol the AVALANCHE from the paper itself. Consequently, we shall only say for the present that the paper will be pniilisiieii Daily, in-weekly ami weekly, ami will commence with a capital of twenty thousand dollars, two thousand Weekly subscribers, and seven hundred Daily subscribers. It- will be es sentially Democratic, but independently so scorning to wear the collar of servitude despis ing the toady and parasite. The creature of no party, the tool of no clique, the organ of no faction, the Avalanche will be the firm, fearless and honest exponent of the great cardinal prin ciples upon winch rests the Democratic party, and a warm and zealous supporter and defender of the men whose elevation i requisite to give permanency and strength tu those principles. Upon the subject of Slavery a subject, that has so often imperilled the nation the Ava lanche will be ultra ; an ardent defender of the rights of the South. The last feather has been laid npoit.tlie camel's 4mck. The South, wrong ed, outraged and goaded by Northern traitors, is fast uniting, and will soon present- a serried and unbroken column. While we will uid in every patriotic effort to stay the rapid sweep of fanati cism, to quell the storm of disunion and to pre- .1. . t 1 I . ..I ,1 -A .1 . . i - . serve me ltepuouc, we siiau ai tuo same nine maintain that the only Union worth preserving is a Constitutional Union a I?moii of Equal ity. Indeed au ardent defense of Southern Rights will be a leading characteristic of the pa per. It will make bitter and unrelenting war upon the Northern traitors, who, in their unholy crusade upon the" South, are willing to trample the Constitution under their unhallowed feet, but it will pursue with still more bitterness those Southern ingrates who are always-ready to palli ate and excuse any aggression upon the rights of the South. The Avalanche will expose peculations and corrupt ions whatever found. It will paint with a true pencil and hold up to the scorn of the peo ple all designing Demagogues, Imposters, and hntnbuggery of every description. Beleiving nay, knowing that a high-toned morality is the basis of good government, the Avalanche will lash with just and merited sever ity, vice and immorality of every phase. " 'Every department of the paper will be care fully filled, and will contain the news of the day, local intelligence, reports of the markets, tel'e graphie news, and the political events of the day.
