Now life is playing through the gay green trees ; See how, in yonder bower, the light leaf dances do the bird's tread and to the quivering breeze! How every bosom in (he sun-light glances! The winter frost to his dark cavern decs. And earth, warm-wakened, feels through every vein The kindling influence of the vernal rain. Now silvery streamlets from the mountain stealing. Dance joyously the verdant vales along; Cold tear no more the songsters’ totiguc is sealing, Down in the thick, dark grove is hoard his song; And, all their bright and lovely hues reveal ing. A thousand plants, the field and forest’s throng; Light comes upon the earth in radiant show ers. And mingling rainbows play among the bovv ers. 15113 Arp to Air- Tammany Hall.

You've got a heart-—a great big heart—and if you were here ] would exclaim in tuo langdwago of my unde Bil-j ly, "put your band in mine, honey, and i • M u r lirrt. iviSa Hi'.. . 11 v i’.il v. . i i iv.1 j. itns uumv. We rcbs arc conquered, subdued and subjugated, not by bayonets or bullets, but by your friendly overtures, your manly speeches. You and Sunny South Cox and Company have captured us, taken us prisoners, and we are now a a uosile as we have been hostile. Dident 1 toil you that we Wuiiid meet you on luh'way grown? Dident wc stretch forth our arms for sym pathy. and waseht we about to turn away in defiance and despair for the want ol it? Wc sprat the mantle of oblivion oa r the past. If you of the iiouih haoe the spirit to accept we of the No>-h hare the heart i to fouler you the ojjises of hindness. lie j will help you plant again the seed whose j perfect hare-, flowers and fruits shall be yours with ours to enjoy ” Did Mr. Cox say that, old Tammany, and did you clap your hands and say “ong- j k ho ref’ lie are to-day arrayed against lie con- j trnlion concerning the blue!;, nice, and are ■ loot ing forward to the whit,, ran joy the ice fare, and greatness of our country/ And dident you say that, too, old Tam many? and dideut all l ands jewbilec and exclaim that’s it, them’s ’em. that’s the j ck . i the white man is a whale.” And dident ; you all take another drink on that Mr. 1 Tammany? Wish:- true of us; ebs had beau there, old fel. jest to have tcchd tumbler. with you. Thank the Lord the, there are good men North of Dixoy. There’s a lieu’) of ’em here, Mr. Hall, and their 1 . , 1 hearts au a jumpin and a bum pin and a . thumpin as big as yours. Their hearts' wore castles, and their buzzums sitadels but you have taken ’em.

Think of it, Tammany. What a glorious sight to see a brave peepul lifted up—a whole nation of white folks rekousiled. What spirit, what gost. what inspiration told you how to reach us? j Hew didyouknow that wo was weak where we was strong, in the same secret corner ol I our buzEums? You've got us Tammany and we 11 res-’ pond to you, we ll reinforce you. W e ve said some hard things 31 r. Hall; v.o\c. tried to skurch, and blister and excoriate.; but you see we were goaded, gored Tn | Pulls_Trumbulls and Republican bulls They bellere l an 1 we pawed dirt. They . punched us in the cape, and wo growled They put tax under oar saddles and we kicked. What else could we do? Test think of it, Tammany. Ruined and deso 1 late, the people in uiournin and tuoii houses in ashes—no luxuries, no comforts, j uo cluistmas worth a cuss, no Santa Claws, 1 n0 nuthin. Could we lick the hand that laid us low?—nary time—no, never. While we was strugglin to rise from out the wreck, to breathe the air above us, to take I an invoice and see if there was enuf left to live for. our enemies were a shoutin hit him. kick him, mash him, smash him ; We were then at the bottom. Tammany. \\ e didn t know there was any lower deep, but our enemies were liuntin. mid they still are liuntin some deeper pit to put us in, and some pendulum ol‘Pee to swing and cut U3. Well wc aint heathens, we’ve been to mcctin, we’ve seen misshionerys. we've got churches and sermons; and hymn books and prayers. We’ve got pious old men and wimmen, and brave boys, and maidens who are finished all the way up like the corners of a temple. God bless cm, Tammany, partickler them last, for in connection with them are centred she hopes of posterity and the j >ys of our life. We’ve all got hearts, old Tammany, and there's many a good Samaritan among us who wouldcntpass you by and go over on the other side. We’ve got charity too. and long suffering, and patience, and hope in abundance, though wc cant believe them Radicals will walk right straight into heaven without knockiu at the door. That docktrinc oi' elcktion is a powerful thing. Tammany, but as shore as you are born it looks sorter unconstitut ional to us for them fellers to enter the celestial city. rl h<?y may pass amendments enuf to do it, and 1 reckon that’s why they are a tinkerin at the old dukument so long; but some how or other when I hear one oi' ern a dyin, my my tnoughts naterrally have a downward tendency. I cant help it Tammany. But maybe we ll get over sich feelins My wife says we- will atlcrvhUe. Vt cave all right towards you, old 1 fall, and our Legislature have been try in for about two months to harmonize tilings generally, and anv reasonable man ought.- to bo satisfied with the efforts they have made. But we can't satisfy them Radicals, I don’t care what we do Y\ e elected Mr. Stevens and flershcl Johnsir. to the Senate, and they are mad about that. They wanted Josh Iiill and Jcoins Join sni beeaus they was Union. Well now; Mr. Tammany, its better always to take men who hare done sumtliin than men who have done nutlun Mr. Hill deliverc 1 his farewell addre ■ be fore he was het, and he said he would like to know why we sing hosanna to Andy Johnsin, who font agin us, and yet wc wont elekt linn who dident.

Do yot sec saw awav on your plank an 1 take goot care that you dont fall oh'. Your speech was sorter spiteful Joshua, and if reduce to its gum would read *Jibjut thus: ‘•Boy: fm tl whale. I am, and Im a prophet, an il you clout elekt me to the Senate I’ll gf to Washington and give you the devil." Well, wedident elect him, Mr. Tamma ny, and the devil may come. In the land- ; gwage of Patrick Henry, “let him conic”— 1 l repeat it sur, "let him come.” There was another candidate, Mr. Hall, whose name was deems Jnhnsin. Well, 1 like 1 Jcents purty well.
