McRae William McWillie Whks Shall Wk Three Meet Again-. The estatic pleasnre of meeting again after long absence, friends whom we dearly esteem, obliterate in a moment the pain of separa tion. Afier an absence of twen'y- seven years (from one,) we accidentally met in Nashville the other day, both of our early instructors 'in th" art preservative of all arts," Hon. Amos R. Johnston, of Mississippi, and Hon. F. K. Zollicoffer, of that Stale. Twenty nine years ago, we entered a little printing office in Paris, in the capacity of printer's devil, with the above gentlemen as editors and proprietors ; we had all things in com mon, and tbe printer s devil was about as important a personage in the eyes of the people then as editors are now. 1 he tact is a printing-office twentynine years ago, daz zled the eves and attracted the admiration of all who came nar it. We remember with what pride and pleasure we hailed the advent ot every Saturday morning. Then it was that we emerged from the office with all the pride and pomp of a militia captain of olden times on parade day. Early on the morning of that day (when the editors had ten quire of paper to print on,) we went forth, with the "Herald of a noisy world, with boys from Pall parts of town lumbering at owr back ! Only those of our favorites (who had apples Ijand cakes) were permitted to approach and much tbe " Herald ; others were kept at a respectful distance, but who even felt honor ed if we would permit them to go along with us. Thus we paraded the principal Streets and alleys for an hour, and then would return to the office, covered with glory enough to last nntil the next Saturday. Ab 1 those were happy days for a printer's devil who arned the "Herald" from the Kamagepresa and kept time to the music of the balls.
