Now if mo, or Jim, or pap should say such a thing at a. town lablo, wo would be tho't greener than pap was on Thanksgiving dar. - . Pap not only knows how to bchtivv, but 'ho also knows that Old Abo has nothing to do with tho color of chicken meat, nor tho piico of pork in this county nor uny whero clso.

Why, sir, wo had porn pa ny tho other da' and killed tom'o t hickens; ono of them was poor as our national treasury, and as bluo as a loader of tho Democra cy. Tho rest wer all fat.
