.' 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. Bo careful, and not mis
take possession for principles.

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

from $100 to $1,(100 each. Also, a,()(lO magiti

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

Prospectus of the
MEJIPJUS AVALANCHE,
Daily, Tri-ll ttkly, and lleekly Srirspayrr,
to in: rriiLisiiKniN mk.mpiii's, ti:nx.
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.
