agin the center pole, causing in llah

humbugs would go down in them vil
lage. Th? ox resoomed agricultooral
pursoots shortly afterwards.
I next tried my hand at givin blind

blind-man my?e!f. But the infamous
cuss who I hired lo lead me round towns
in tlie day time, to excite sympathy
drank freely of spirituous licker unbe
knownst to trie, one day, and while
under them inflooance he led me into
a canal. I had to either tear the green
bandige from my eyes, or be drowned
I tho'i Fd re.-tore my eyesight,
In wriiiu about these things, Mr. Ed
itor, kinder smooth 'em over. Speak
of 'em as eccentricities of gen'us.
My next venmr wood have bin a
success if I hadn't tried to do too much.
I got up a series of wax figgers, and
among others, one of Socrates. I tho't
a wax fiiisrer of Old Sock would be
poplar with editated people, but unfor
tuniily I put a brown linen duster and
an U. S. Army regulasion cap on him;
which pepl with classycle eddycatious
said it was a farce. This enterprise
was unfortn t in other respecks. At
certain town, I advertised a wax figger
of the Hon'ble Amos Perkins, who
was a railroad president, and a great
person in them parts. But it appeared
I had shown the same figger for a Pi
rut named GiLbs, in that town the pre
vious season, which created a intense
toomitlt, aud the audience remarked
"shame onto me," and other statements
of the same similarness. I tried to
mollify 'em. I lolJ 'em that any fam
ily possessin children, might have rny
she tiger to play with half a day, and
I wouldn't charge 'em a cent, but alars
it was of no avai'. I was forced to
leave, and I infer from a artikle in 7Vj
vldveriisrr of that town, in which the
editor says, "Altho' time has silvered
this man's hed with its frostg, he still
brazenly wallows in infamy. Siiil are
his snakes stuffed, and bis wax works
unreliable. We are glad that he has
concluded never to revisit our town,
although incredible as it may appear,
the fellow did contemplate doing so
la tt summer; when, still true ta the
) craven instincts of his black heart, he
wrote the hireling knaves of the obscure
journal across the street to know what
they would charge him for 400 small
bills, to be done on yellow paper! We
shall recur to this matter again."
I say, I infer from this article that a
prejudiss still exists agin me in that
I will not speak of my once bein in
straitened circumstances in a sertin
town, and of my endeavorin' to accoo
mulate welth by leltin myself lo Sab
bath school picnics, to sing ballads adapt
ed to the understandins of liule children,
accompanyin my.-elf on a clarione't
which I forgot where I was one day,
singin in&tid of ' Oh, how pleasant to
be a little child,"
Rip snap set 'em up again,
llight in the middle of a threeut pie.
which mistake added to the fact that I
couldn't play onto the clarionett, except
making it howl dismal, broke up the
pic-nic, and childred said in voices
choked in sobs and emotions, where was
their home, and where was their pa?
and I said, be quiet dear children, I am
your pa, which made a joung woman
with two twins by her side say very
angrily, "Good heavens forbid you
should ever be the pa of any of these
innocent ones, unless it is much desira
ble for them to expire igmynyusly upon
to a murderer's gallus!"
I say I will not speak of this. Lei
it be Bernd into Oblivyun.
In your article Mr. Edditer, please
tell them what sort of a man I am.
If you see fit to criticise my Show,
6peak your mind freely. I do not ob
ject to criticism. Tell the public in a
candid and graceful article that my
Show abounds in moral and startlin
curiosities, any one of whom is wuth
dubble the price of admisshon.
I have ihus far spoke of myself ex
clooaively as a exhibiter.
I was born in the Stale of Maine of
parents. As a infant I attracted a great
deal or attention, lue naiem .uu.u
stand over my cradle for hours, and say
"How bright that little face looks! How
much it nose!'' The young ladies
would carry me around in their arms.
sayinl was muzzer's bezzy darlin and
a sweety 'eety ntle ting. It was nice,
though I wasn't old enufF to properly
appreciate it. Fin a healthy old darlin
I have allers sustained a good moral
character. I was never a railroad di
rector in my life.
Although in my early life I did not
invariably confine myself to truth in
umall bill, I have been gradually grow
iog respectabler and respectabler every
year. I luv my children and never
mistake another man's wife for my
own. I'm not a member of any ineetin
house; but firmly believe in meetiu
houses, and shouldn't feel safe to take
a dose of laudnum and lay down in the
street of a village that hadn't any with
a thousand dollars in rny vest pocket.
My temperament is bilious, altho"
don't owe a dollar in the world.
I am a early riser, but my wife is a
a Presbyterian. I may add that I am
also baldheaded. I keep two cows.
I live in Baldwinsville, Indian'. My
next door naber is old Steve Billins. 11
tell j-ou a little story about Old Steve
that will make you larf. He jined the
Church last Spring, and the ministe
said, "you must go home now, Brother
Billins, and erect a family aliar in your
own house, whereupon the egregus old
ass went home and buill a reg'lar pulpit
in his settin room. He had the jinders
in his house over four days
I am 56 (56) years of age. Time
with its relentless scythe is ever busy.
The old sexton gathers them in, he gath
ers them in! I keep a pig this year.
I don't think of anything more, Mr.
If you should give my portrait in
connection with my Biogrofry, please
have me engraved in a languishin' atti
tood, leanin' on a marble pillar, leavin
my back hair as it is now.
J?Sf" A Copperhead paper casts a
slur upon Gen. Sherman for drawing
his sword against, "his ancient friends'
Bragg and Beauregard. We presume,
according to this reasoner, it was all
right for Bragg and Beauregard to
draw their swords against the Union,
a friend that educated, fed, protected
and supported them.
ROMANCE OX THE RAIL..
A pretty little bit of romance devel
oped itself in one of the Slate street
cars in Chicago lately, as related by the
Republican of that city:
Among the passengers was a pale,
quiet, little woman, plainly dressed and
very pretty withal. Presently a one
egged soldier labored into the car on
his crutches. The seats were crowded
and the soldier had to stand. The
young woman got up, pulled the blue
sleeve, and pointed to the seat she had
acated. For the first time, as he turn
ed, she had a full view of his face, and
neither o them paid any more atten
tion to the empty seat. They stared at
each other a minute, and then, in spite
of the awkward motion of the car, em
braced and kissed each other wiih hys
terical fervor. At first, the passengers
were somewhat astonished at so public
a'demonstration, but all of them soon
oined in congratulating the delighted
couple upon learning that the two per
sons thus suddenly brought together
were man and wife, long separated by
the vicissitudes of war.
The soldier had been desperately
wounded in Tennessee and taken pris-
a- v i I
oner, lie was supposed to nave neen
killed, and before he was restored to
freedom and able to write, his wife, or
widow, as 6he supposed herself, remov
ed to Chicago, and so his letters never
reached her. The poor fellow, ns soon
as he could travel, set out for home,
with a desponding heart, to learn why
is letters had never been answered
He reached Chicago on Friday, on
lis way thither, when the generous
uiiDulse oi a lunu lime woman to a
maimed soldier, brought her back, a
loving husband, and threw him into the
open arms oi a wire wno naa long
mourned him as among that innumer
able host who have lain down their lives
for the salvation of their country."
The extent of the Pardon Business
promises a coloisal feature for the next
census, if reconstruction is to depend
on figures. Let it be stated, along
with other manufactures, how many
patriots have been fashioned to hand,
and have gone forth with the Govern
ment's stamp on them; what kind of loy
alists have been made by the operation
and what assortment is constantly on
hand. To illustrate the amount of
business passing through the Pardon
Bureau, a Washington dispatch relates
that "a large rack 12 feet high and 8
feet wide has been erected," and ihis
same rack all poor ex-Rebels mustun
dergo. It is divided into "longitudina
sections, running the whole length" a
stretch of forgiveness fearful to con
template "each section containing the
applications from each State" in process
of passing through the great pardon
paper-mill, "Virgiuia takes the lead
her pile being over ten feet high, and
containing 3,000 applications. Alabama
follows wiihii pile of 1,500, upon which
the dust is accumulating; ' and so on
till we have a load which only the cam
el-back of the pardoning power can
bear. There is no end lo the good
which may be effected by a judicious
system of pardons certainly there is
no likelihood of being an end to the
pardons. So far there are 10,000 ap
plications, all of which the Government
well versed in making out the muster
rolls of armies, profess i'a entire ability
te lake care of. Pardons enough lo
reconstruct the Union seem lobe already
assumed, judging by the vigorous vote
with which Alabama has abolished the
admission cf negro testimony in Courts
of Justice. The fault of ihe Pardon!
Bureau is lhat it does too much aud too
liule. Like the old Boman water-clock
its minute mercies drip drop by drop;
but if the whole Rebellion can be par
doned in this Pickwickian way, let us
expect no deluge hereafter. Pardon
ing, as it is now managed, may be an
easy task; but it would be hard work if
the Government had to do it over again,
especially as the "piles" of Virginia,
Alabama and Georgia are even now
twenty feet high, so that the great body
of pardon applications from the whole
South cannot be much lower than Bun
ker Hill Monument. JV. Y. Tribune.
gyMr. Henry S. Foote has been per
mitted to return to his home at Nashville,
Term., on condition that he does not mo
lest the policy of the Government regard
Morphy and other eminent chess-
players have recently given instances
of their extraordinary memories- Dr.
Wallis tells us that he could by mere J
effbrt of memory perform arithmetical
calculations, as multiplication, division, J
extraction of roots, &c, up to forty
places. Zerah Jolburn, George Bid-
er, and Jedediah Buxton were also!
wonderful mental arithmeticians. The
ast one once mentally calculated how
much a farthing doubled 140 times
would come to. and the answer wus set
own from his lips in 39 places of
pounds and an odd 2s. CI; mid being
sked once how many barleycorns
would reach eight miles, answered in
one and a half minutes, 1,520,640. Sir
Walter ScOtt had a marvelously reten-
iiv memnrv: so had Macaulav. who it
1 ' I
is said, could repeat from memory the
whole of Paradise Lost. In the stirring
days of Athenian political greatness,
men could be found who could repeat
the Iliad and the Odyssey, and we have
read of a man in Naples who could (
repeat the whole of Tasso's Jerusalem
Delivered, and noi only recite it con-
secutively, but repeat any stanza in any
given book, repeat those stanzas in ut-
ter defiance of the sense either back-1
wards or forwards, or from the Sth to I
the 1st line alternately. We have I
heard of several persons (notably ihe
ate blind Jamie of Stirling) who could
repeal the whole of the Bible or any
required verse of it. There are, be-
s des, dozens of living persons with I
nost marvellous memories, the chief of
whom is perhaps Mr. FJihu Burritt, the
Mezzofanli of the present day.
PRES. JOII.SO AS A TAILOR

on a pair of breeches or on a fine coat,
and could get a better price for his
work than I. He never mads a gar

returned, lie was the best tailor I
ever met. When Andy got married
he hadn't ten dollars in the world, and
his wife was as poor as Naomi's daugh

she was married (calling her byname)

absented, and ihe consequence was the
young couple bad not one cent with

they were married she taught him to

A writer says, that "While the
Southern men will not consent to negro
suffrage, everything else ihe negro
wan'.s will be accorded to him. This
supposes, in the first place, that the
Southerners have granted the negro
everything else, that emancipation was
their act and deed, that the negro is

OLD SEEDS SPROUTING.
The Chicago Joum al, iu speaking of
the South Carolina Convention, brings
up many old names. They have been
"absent without, leave" from, the coun-

They buried themselves; but like Jocust

seems to have brought them out. Foul

it lias been ratified by three-fourths of
the States, and is. virtually a part of the

amendment to be ratified by the Le-
lslaturws of three-fourths cf the several
Slates, and holds thai only ihree-fourihs
of the States "actually participating in
the Government" are required, and in
support of this view quotes Mr. Bishop,

legal person would ever doubt that,
when there are States with Legislatures
and States without Legislature, and the
Constitution submits a question to the
determination of the Legislatures' of
ihree-fourths of the several Slates, the
meaning- is, three-fourths of the'Siates
whkh have Legislatures, In fact, it
does not require either legal wisdom or
lecal acumen to see this, provided we
look at the point disconnected from the
peculiar subject of slavery."

Our tallndj-jvi iters put too muoirroher

an athletic Ethiopian minstrel dismally
bleat, "Mother kiss me in my dreams,''
just as though she would do it until he
washed the cork from his face. A moth,

fact, life would be unpleasant. But why
sing the maternal parent's merits eot er"
eistently and in such shaky verse? Why
not vary tha thing, and occasionally give
us a father or two. If we must continu
ally sing about our parents, let us, by all
J means, give the "old man' a ckance.
