The Ballad of Boaa Bagshavr,
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.
Like cobblers in the past,
lie one day from his last did go
To come unto his last.

Tho evening of the fifteenth of Fob-

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

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

composed of throe rows of valuablo

of either glittered a spray of hoarts

diamonds. The bracelet wero ren

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

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
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."

no blushed, looked 'ip to her huhbar.d

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
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.

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

TrAn old gentleman, who was

man discovered ono ol the birds, ho
took a rest and blazed away, expect

so did it happen, for tho gun recoiled
with so much force as to " kick " him
over. Tho old man got up, nnd while
rubbing tho sparks out of his eyes,
inquired of his son, "Alphy, did I

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

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. This darke enlisted iu Ms
bohulf all tlioja generous impulses
and sympathies of tho captain which
drkey.ionly cun arouse. Ho was a
woor, iuuiaut, dowr. -trodden darkey
living ovidence of the " wrongs of
slawp- . At '"T waJ 1
ruetcd in reaamg and writing, bo
of which accomplishments we
was m-
" CI " ia him. 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. But sad to relate, when this
i3Lchif;6i, cravo, and patriotic pupu
cf tho opLcm reached Detroit, no
sudclooiy bcrnmo rr;i cJt Mid hai not
evea to .h's day returned to his kind

scorned greenback. - Wdl, this) eo
ond " mau and brother " was stripped
for examination, w hen lo, tho sight
that met tho astonished gf-ze of
" Brother McConnell " words cannot
express. There, right before liim,
wtw a living victim of ono cf Harriet
Bcochcr Stowo's Ijegroes, with the
horrid Dtripes plainly marked in ridges
upon his back. 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. "Warming up to
the full height of his new born zeal
tho flashes of undying love beam
ing from his clenr bluo eye, and ren
dering eloquent tho tonguo which had
wearied in fainter praiso of vulgar
cheese, " There," ho declared in stento
rian voice, pointing to tho scored back
of tho son of Ham, " that is tchat makes
me an Alolitionint"
I'oor "copperheads." Thero they
stood, struck dundi by this mute evi
dence of the " barbarism of slavery."
What a sceuo wos that for .a painter
what a themo for the oct. Wondor
filled the hearts and spoko from the
eyes of thoso around as it did when
Moses appeared beforo tho people of
old with the tablets of binai. And as
Mokcs looked in rnge at tho golden
calf while ho pointed at tho tablets,
no Willard looked at tho "copper
heads" whilo ho pointed at his nigger.
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.
Whother in honor of tho event or
not we are not prepared to say, but
Bometimo during tho day tho colebra

night, he and " Brother McConnell,"
aud various of the faithful, repaired

the hictorv of the arrival r,f 41.
"Jknew by tho glisten of his eye," ho
said, " that the bravo fellow

But a mo.it unpalatable C:Utl
