'Get out, you nasty puppy let ma alone, or I'll tell your ma!' cried out Sally to her, Jake .who sat about ten feet from h er, pulling dirt from the chimney jam. 'I arn't touchin' on you, Sal,' responded Jake. 'Well, perhaps you don't mean to, nu.tb.er do vou?' NoI don't.' Cause you're too darned long-legged, lanter-jved, slab-sided, pigeon-toed, lab beiheaded, gangled-kneed owl. you you ain't got a ta'ual bit o' sense; get along home with you! Now, Sal, I Iovo you, and you can't help it;atd if you don't let me stay and court you. my daddy will sueyou'rn for that cow he sold hitn t'other day. By jingo, he said he'd do u. Well, look here, Jake if you want to couit me, ycu'd better do it as a white man does that thing not set off there, as if you tho't I was pizen. Ilow on airth is that, Sal? Wny, slide right up here, onl hug and kus nie.as if you really had some of the bone and sinner of a man about you. Do you 's-poso a woman's only made to look at, you stupi 1 fool, you? No, they're made for prac tical resultj, as Kossuth says to hug and kiss, and such like. 'Well,' said Jake, taking a long breath, 'if T must, I must, for I love you, Sal;' and so Jake commenced sliJiDg up to her, like a maple poker going to bottle. Laying hia aim gently on Sal's shoulder, we thought we heard Sal say: That's the way to do it old hoss '.hat's acting like a white man orter.' 'Ou, Jerusalem and pancakes, exclaimed Jake, 'il this arn't better tlian any apple sass ever marm made, a darned sight. C-r-a-c-k-e-e! buckwheat cakes, slap jacks and 'lasses aint nowhere 'longsido o' you' Sal! Oh, how I love you!' Here their lips camo together, and the report that followed was like drawing a horse's hoof out of tha mire. "It was not so at Home." 'Ah, massa! it was not co at home! when my oilier baby died, old missus came and laid her out herself, and I had a clean bad to lay htr on, and Miss Emily put flowers i:i her littls coflin.' Sorrowful words are these, and from them a lesson may b3 learned by all who are not too much blinded by the modern sentimen tality of lhe hour. A poor uegress, beguiled by the syroo song of Abolition philanthropy, has escaped, with her two children, from her 'Old Vir ginia Home,' and is the recipient of Govern ment bcui'ty at Washington.
