Boss Bsgshaw wss a cobbler Once living at Bull's Head, Where long he waxed stout and ft, As well at his shoe thread. And while he sowed not what he reaped, He ripped what he had sewed And almost asUilio eare For wayworn soles he showed. The boss a doctor never was, Though often did he heal And kips and calfs he did cut op, All for the publio woal. While he could neither write nor read, The shoeless were aware That for the understanding he Did exercise a care. Ne evil fortnne, small or great, Could make his spirits fall He even sang right merrily U'kw . liw Iobi tils awl. And even to his dying day, Of Bugshnw U it told, lie never sold a lenky boot, Though such be oft half solod. Once ho, from too much drink, was in A state of lsther-gy, When thieves made booty of his shoes, And with them they did flee. When he came to, snyi be, " If I Get once Uxm their tracks, For having stolen ot my stock They'll get shoemaker's whacks." That afternoon one thief he caught, Who quickly came to grief ( For Boss he went from welling shoes, To welting of tho thief. The M. P's got another ono A making out of town, And when the thief wss taken up, He seemed quite taken down. Boss plied his trade for forty yean, Or some here thereabout ; For he, though long a pegging In, Was longer pegging out. But Bagxhaw couldn't always live.

Tho evening of the fifteenth of Fob- ruary, itoj, wasagaiaat, x an. Don uiovanni " was to oo pcnorin- cd at the opera by an asimblapo of talent rarely announced for ono night, even nt tho opera cf i'aris or in tho creat opera cf 41 Don Giovanni." Yet it was not tho names of tho cr tisten that most attructod the atten tion aa ono reada tho billu nobler and more celebrated names caught tho ye. They wero those of tho reigning king and queen Louis l'hilips mid Mario Anielie. Tho ajivlis announced th'.t they would honor theopera vith their presence on that evening. They had beon but a hott timo restored to tumr nativo land, and this wr s titeir lro nppearanco at tho opera t ino the thro UavB ol July Baa pjaebU them on tho throne ; lor this icacon as many Orloanibta as could obtain tickets had secured them for tho opora of tho 15th of February to hear "Don Giovanni" and fee their king nnd queon. About nix o'clock (for, if it bs remembered, tho l'ari opera did not begin at tho present Ixmdon hours) carnages wcro to ue seen conveying their gaily dressed occupants to tho classic building. An unusually hand some CQwr0?0 slool a tuo door -of a largo house in tho Io lci Champs Llysoes, evidontly also lor tho purposo of taking some fashionables to tlio opera. This carriage and houso be longed to tho Baron do V , who was iust then standing at tlio bottom of tho noblo staircaso insido tho man sion, calling playfully to his wife, tell ing her that the carriage was waiting. "I'm coming, I'm coming," was tho answer to this appeal ; " don't bo in such a hurry!" As tho last rieco of advico was prof fered, tho spoakcr appeared at the top of tho stairs. Bho was a dark beauty of about ono and twenty, and dressed purely in whito. bhe camo lluttenng down stairs, chattering meantime to her handsome husband, who stood look ing admiringly at her. "Isow Ira quito ready, so please don't scold. I'vo only got my brace lets to put on, and thoso I want you to clasp for me. Here's tho case, if you will tako them out, and here's my wrist. Now, suppose I woro to loso them in tho crowd, what would our good mother say" A smilo was tho only answer the baron vouchsafed, as he took the bracelets out their case and clasped them on the fair white arm of his bride. They wore very costly, being each composed of throe rows of valuablo tablo diamonds, whilst in the centre of either glittered a spray of hoarts esso, artistically formed of smaller diamonds. The bracelet wero ren dered more precious to their possessor ly tho laet ot tlieir having been in tho Do V family for throo trenera- tions. They now by right bolongod to the dowager baronne, but sho had insisted on giving them to her son for his bride, who, thereforo, wore them on such occasions as tho ono wo aro describing. The Baron and Uaronno do V- stopped into their carriago, and in a few minutes wore entering their box at tho opera. Tho houso wag already full, although it wanted fifteen min utes to tho timo announced for tho overture to begin. At length tho members of the orchestra took their placos, and the poculiar, subdued sound of turning stringed instruments was heard. Still tho royal box was ompty, and all eyes Mere turned towards it in eager expectation. In another moment applauso burst from the pit and gallery and tho ontiro house, as Ixmig l'Jiilippo and Queon Mario Amelu, -v - ,U'6W uit of olllcers and ladies and gentle men of the court, appeared. Tho king and quoen bowed graciously in rtiurn for the homago paid them, and then took their seats, at which tho rest of tho company did tho same, and the ovorturo commenced. Tho Queen looked unusually hap py, and seemed to tako a lively iutcr ett in all around her. Sho not enly gazed at tho stago, but the boxea r.lso camo in for a sharo of her penetrating observation. Suddcnlv she bent slicrhtlv forward and looked in tho direction of tho box that contained tho lovely young Bar rone do V . Tho lattor wat lean ing lorward, her rgui nana raisea, a finger of which touched one of Iioa dimpled cheeks, deeply interested in the fate of "Don Giovanni," and quite absordod in tho beautiful music. Jlcr husband had noticed the oueen s gosturo, and was awaro that she had observed his wife, and when tho quoen turnod away ho laughingly told her of it. " Nonsonso," criod tho brido, "don't fancy such absurdities." The truth of wh"t hor luisbnnd had raw, no orei, con icrced itsou tpou hor nind, lir ot th?.t iucm?t en olU cer, dri?sod iu the r,atn r.ttifoita.us those p.ttending tho royal party, drevr. i - ii ........ ..

Tho pretty baron no blushed, looked 'ip to her huhbar.d for his appro vu, thsu unciatpod ono of the brafoktu rnd handed t tj tV.e ofucer, fooling not a little Uattered at tin Pttentior. and distinction tl'Q4ueen Uutl wnrerr'.'d on r-er. Til? lr.st act of tho opera herein, and at length tho l.act raeno ended, yet tut bracolct was not r&ixrnel. It owners thought tho olficcr hcl doubt less forgotten it, and the baron said ho wculd go and make inquire con cerning it. Ho did so, end i few moments returned, though without tho bracelet. ." Adele," said ho to his wife, " it is very strange, butv.cirecii.g the officer who took yot'r bracelet, 1 acked cno of tho others who had been in the royal box tho whoto evening, and he says your bracelet was neither sout for nvt' fetched." Tho baronne looked aghast. "Francois," hheEiid, "that man must have boon an impestov. llo was no oilieer, b- t an a f Irene thief." The baron tmilod as his littlo wife jumpt'd eo speedily i.t tuth a conclu sion and persisted that tho bracelet was safe and had really been sent for by tho queen, and that tho oflieer whom ho had consulted was misin formed. But woman's penetration had guess ed rightly, as the morrow proved. As tho bracelet was not forthcom ing tho nc?.t worniug, M do V spoke to the chief inspector of tho polico cn the subject, who quito coin cided with madame's opinion as to tho valuablo ornam?nt having beon artfully stolon. Tho bnron was great ly annoyed, and ordered tho inspector to advertise for it in every direction, offering ft reward of 3,0'JO francs to tho person who should rsstore it.- Tho inspector promised to do ail in hi3 power toward tho recovery of tho bracelet, aa wi ll for tho sake of soci ety at largo ag tiio satisfaction of tho employers. But throo months passed away 350 francs hau been spent in adver tisingand still tho missing bracelet was not found. It was growing dark ono evening in May, when a ecrvani lnionueu Madamo do V that inoniour tlio inspector wished to p.peak to hor or monsieur the baron. As tho latter was out, Madamo do V went down btairs to upeuk to tho inspector, with whom tilu' had many pluvious inter views on tlio subject of the diamond bracelet. As alio entered tho room ho bowed in tho respectful manner peculiar to him. "1 believe I have eomo good news for madamo, this evening," ho sold! His roico was rather singular, somewhat resembling a boy s when changing. Madamo do V had remarked this peculiarity before, so it did not strike her that eening. "Tho detectives, Be con tinued, engaged in tho business, havo met with a bracelet in a Jew's second hand shop in Lyons, so exactly tho samo as madamo' s, that it only ro mains for it to bo identified before wo can claim it as madamo's property. My object in coming this ovenmg is to ask madamo to allow me to look at the other that I may bo able to swear the one at Lyons by its follow." She baronne, overjoyed at tho idoa of recovering her lost property, trip pod out of tlio room, and soon re turned with tho remaining bracelot. Tho inspector took it carefully in his hand and; proceeded to examino it minutely. ' " The bracelets aro exact ly alike?" he inquired of Madame de V , : " JJxactly," repeated the baronne. " I boliovo I havo learned tho pat torn thoroughly," said tho inspector musingly, "yet thoro may be somo difficulty in not having both bracelets together to compare them ono with tho other." ""Why not tako this to Lyons, then?" suggested tho baronne. " Ah, madamo, it would scarcely do to trust even a police inspector af ter having boon deceived by an oflicor in difguiso." " Oh!" laughed Madamo do V , " do you not think T would trust you, Monsiour Inspector, after all tho in terest and trouble you have taken in tho matter? Tako tho bracelet, and Ihopoyou will bring me both back ere many days havo paused." Tho inspector still hesitated, but at length eonsontd to do as tho brJlonna. Una io;;ix llllil, -UCTWem CWa, 'fT'U'ii'- mg tho sparkuufr ornament with him. On her husbund's return tho baronne, of course, told him of tho joyful dis covery. A week, howevor, passed away without the " inspector arriving with the stolen property. Ono morning, therefore, tho baron called on tho in spector to make inquiries respecting it. Tho latter teemed very .much sur prised on beinp; asked if tho bracclot had been brought from Lyoiu. " What dooa monsieur irjcau ? I fiov er her.rd r4n; thivg about tho bracelet having beon found at Lyns it i3 6rely a mUtd'co. Monsieur has mis understood Madair.o la liarour.e." "You bad better r.wmeyourtclf and Lp.vo his sir?ngo mystery cleared up, 11. 3 rieetot'," ".ns'.-.rsd tho baroa, sternly. ?.tadauo in at homo, and yjll bo happy to assuro yea herself that it is no mistake, that you called ind i .! ho-r of tl liwoad hov : i. 1 i , .... - Tho c?roA and inspector rcpaiW. to tho li.o d3 Clu-mpo, KlyHces, where they found Kaunx.o de V . they lour u Jiauav at home, ui lier hu:batd lied said. -Sho coniirmed 'rliat ho hrd already said a'nout tuo inspector having called ono night at dusk, and having in formed her that tho bracelet was sup poiod to bo at a Jew' second hand shop at Lycn.

Tho rosult of tho election operated like a- spark of llro upon a powder magazine upon " W. M. McConnell, Uipt. and i'ro. Marshal, Fifth Dist. Michigan." For a few days subse quent to that event, meeting him was to a " copperheud " liko meeting with a wild boar, his tushes stuck out iu every direction, and ho frothed and foamed wonderfully. Ho had " got the copporheads under and he was going to keep them under." Even ons of the most quiet of thora had to tako a vaniiii'' (nun tho rodoubtable "ir;7iiarrwnrt:.Tir'.vv4iJin.N.n, i. would bo " watched and "kept un der." But as thero was no general rising of tho " copperheads," it did not requiro any groat amount of the captain's jio'wor to keep thom under, and tho captain consequently got cool ed down to moderate heat. But un fortunately for Iho " copperhoada," an ovent occurred ou Friday, which crmt our mercurial I'rovoet up t'ain, and ho roared around tho streets hko a mad bull. It was tho most desperate cuco of " nigger on tho brain " on record, and niet with the lfost tpo.dy if not penuai'ont cuio cf ny yet poctod in tiio bookn. oomo weeks ago a darkoy yn. re- oruitod at tho Prorost's olfiek nd wu3 li-om thoro takon to tho tamp ground.

But ho SiUrrr?ed all with tho wonderful proficiency he made in mastering tliem, and none more so than his friend, the captain, who rung his praises of the nigger upon every change, and pohitod him out to tlio doubting " copporhorda" as a living, breathing, savory illustra tion cf tho fact that a niggo waa an intcdligcnt man and broihor " and tho equal cf the captain in every ro spoct. In return for tho praiso of his now found friend tho niggor showed his ivory, but kept his own counsel. When the captain boasted that he was tho right kind of stuff for a sol dier, t ed would fight liko a hero, the nigger nodded his bond and exhibited a still rrreatcr amount of ivorv. And tnus matters stood' until with prided and 6orrow tho captain witnossed tho final departuro of tho 6ablo saviour of his country for tho seat of war, with the bounty money in his pocket ami a plenty of chicken-pio under his jacket.

Thero was evidence incontrovertible of tho " barbarism of slavery," aud happy thought " Brother Mo." would havo it photo graphed, and then wouldn't he show tho "copperheads" a tiling or two? So away went Mc and his shade to 'a photographer, where tho nigger stood for a backtiJo view, while Mo stood by and listened with breathless interest and tears of sympathy in his eyes to tho terrible wrongs of bis reoruit.--Ho had been whipped by his oversocr until tho overseer could whip no lon ger from sheer cxhaustatioii, when the master took his place, and thus they whipped alternately, until tho blood flow all round tho premises, and flesh hung down in ttnngs liko sausages in a butcher'si ta!l. And finally Sambo made his ecapo, and here he was, ready to fight tho battles of his coun- tT. . An clocrant Iramo soon adorned this elegant parlor ornament, and "Broth er McConnell," so soon as ho had paid over the lounty money, (a favor which it seems is not gruutod to " whito trash" until it is safb in. tho service) hurried with it to tho street, and there ro hoarsed te littlo groups of attentive listeners, and fur; tho special benefit of tho " copperheads," tlio story of Iho black man's wrongs.

But hero tho nimilo ends, foy whilo I Mosos dashed tho tablets to the ground, "Brother Mc " hugged the photograph to his breast, and finished his labors among the sinning " copperheads " by carrying it homo, to be chiefeot among tho idols of his household.
