"01c Tirglnny Never Tire."
The Wheeling Intelligencer says:
We saw yesterday, going up towards the
upper ferry, a team of four animals a
horse, aponv, a mule and a bull. The
horse had the heaves, the pony was blind
the mule was lame, and the bull had no
provisions for fly time. In the wagon,
which was an ordinary one, there iat a
white man, a crippled nigger, and a tame
skunk, fraily bound with a withe of straw.
The while man held the lines, the team
held its own: and the nigger held the
skunk, and they all moved forward. To
mike this worthy cf its place, it is essen
tial to say that it is true.
There are some recollections of such
overpowering vastness, that their objects
seem ever near; their size reduces all
intermediate events to nothing.
