There was a serious and ludierbus aspect
in the late shipment of the negro in a.dry
goods box. from Nashville to Seymour,
per Adam* express. It was serious to the
poor, fellow, who endured Lis sore trials in
transit with so much fortitude, and who,
just on the eve of escape, was returned to
servitude. His name is Alex. McClure,
and he is the property of Newton McClure,
of Nashville. It appears that he was
packed in an ordinary square dry goods
box by a free negro named Nathan Jacobs,
at aroom which wus occupied by Aleck.
It was addressed as heretofore described,
and the negro who drayed it to Adam’s
Express office, in Nashville, remarked,
when depositing it. on ..the pavement,

And show- Ih-ir dark wing- and their bosoms of white.
As back ward mid forward they dart in fin ir flight!
How joyous, bow gladly they sport with the breeze,
Sow low on the water—now high o’er the trees;
And some arc np high as the church's old dome.
All merry ns we are to see they are come!
And now round the pool—’neafh the alders, weT stray,
Atnl thank our kind Father for this pleasant day ;
'Tis He guides the swallows long mih-s o’er the sea,
Belighting the minds both of thee. loie. and me.
I'll light my tobacco and rest on this stile ;
You may seek for a pretty ringed snail-shell the while,
And when you have found it we’ll hasten back home.
And tell your dear mother th.o swallows are come.
89, The following, by Dow, Jr., is matchless in its
beauty;
Bay by day old sorrows leave us,
• Leave ns while new sorrows come:
Come, like evening's shadows lengthening;
Leulhening round the spirit homo.
Bay by day fade Friendship's Flowers—
Flowers that flem ished in the past—
Past, oh Past I—once bright and glowing:
Glowing once, but dimmed at last I
Lost to fade of all its Fancy—
Fancy, ever young and gay;
Gay ,as when young Love was dreaming,
Beaming, dreaming, day by day.

* THE ASS AND THE HARE.
A FABLE.
One day a rough and ragged Asa
Was munching thistles, weeds, and grass,
Upon a common scant and bare.
When, looking round, he spied a Hare.
The. Am munched on in solemn state,
: And leaned and rubbed against a gate.
Gazing with dull odd stupid sta e.
And thus addressed the listening Hare
“ P-*or Puss, I- pity and despise
The fear lurks within those eye*;
You tremble while yon sit) a* though
You dread at every turn a foe;
Whilst I rouuch up tny weeds and thistle,
Nor care for any one a whistle.
Poor Puss, pursued by man and beast,
Must furnish up to each a feast,
Nor do the very birds forbear
To prey upon the timid Hare.-”
He ceased: the Hare, with modest grace,
Stroked with her feet her gentle face,
And. looking bashful as a bride.
She thus unto the Ass replied:
u Onr lot in life, good Mr. Ass,
Is not the same—but let that pass.
I do u*«t wish to seem unkind,
But think it be.*t to speak my mind,
And own at once I’d rather be
A timid hair unbound and free,
Than pa**s my life in munching gr***, '
And bearing burdens, I ike an Ass.
They do not eat you up for food,
Because yor carcass is not good:;
But alter death, if no one eats you,.
In life each village urchin beats you.
Your strength is greater for than mine,
But doesyour coat so brightly shluef
Courage and patiancc you possess,
Par more than mine. I must confess.
A faithful drudge and slave at need,
Art thou, good Mr. Ass, indeed. .
But much I doubt if lash and thong.
If burdens great and journeys long, «
Are n<>t worse ills for you to bear,
Tiiau any which befall the Hare.”
MORAL.
Contempt for oth.-rn oft will bring
A just retort Winch b» ar-* a sting.
Condemn rot any til r you know
The reason why God made him so;
Nor seek to benefit y.>ur s:ate
By sneering at another's fate.

ling Green. There the Express messen
ger concluded to lie down, and, haring
another box of similar dimensions, he
rolled the two together for a bed, getting
Aleck down in a horizontal position. At
Louisville, when the box was tumbled oft
the train, Aleck’s tribulations again com
menced. The box was rolled about'as
rail road baggage masters toss trunks
aboat. Aleck, to save his bones, spread
himself promiscoualy about, holding his
elbows out spread eagle fashion against
either side of the box, his knees and back
bone also pressing opposite sides. Unfor
tunately he was again turned bead down
ward, and so rode across the river to the
Jeffersonville Railroad Depot. By good
luck be was placed in the car on this road
right side up with care, and so went to
Seymour. There his adventures culmin
ated. it was just dark. The express
messenger, a comparatively new hand at
the Dusinesa, was getting his Cincinnati
freight on board the 0. & M. cars rapidly.
He got hold of Aleck’s box and “joun
ced” him about until he was tilted into
the car, when the upper side of the box
burst open. It was darjk, and no discov
ery was made at the instant; but the
messenger took his fist to drive down the
lid of the box, so that he could get it out
of the way, and rolled it over once
more, when out rolled the> nigger. The
messenger; budlyxterrified as if he had
seen the d —l, sprang from the car, shout
ing “ A man in the car, man in the car.”
A crowd gathered and the facts began to
appear. The messenger got wrothy end
was about to kick Aleck out of the car;—
The watchman of the O. & M. road, how
ever, had seen police service, and discov
ering a prospective reward for a runaway
slave, seized poor Alec and detained him
as a prisoner until the train fot Louisville
came along, when he took the fugitive to
Louisville and deposited him in jail, sub
ject to the order of his master. Mr. Pat
teison, of the express company, endeavor
ed in vain to regain possession-, in order
to reship him to Nashville, the authori
ties pleading the severity of the law in the
case, which required even the master of a
fu itive to prove ownership before deliv
ery from jail. So the express company
waited till yesterday, when Mr. McClure
appeared and took his chattel home.—
Aleck was in the box seventeen hours
without food save a few chestnuts. His
po.-ition and confinement, without ventila
tiuii, except from the very slight cracks
where tlie box was joined, was excrucia
ting—almost horrible—and nothing hard
ly save the love of liberty could induce
him, or any other man, to undergo such
torture so many hours.
W e add that the party who arrested
entitled to a reward of §125,
payable by the State, and which is requir
ed by the State from tbe owner before the
delivery of the negro. The Adam’s Ex
pres Company assumed the debt in this
instance, besides all other expenses.—

In olden times before the main laws
were invented, Wing kept the hotel at
Middle -GrainviTle? and from his; well
stocked bar furnished “accommodations
to man and beast.*’ He was a good! land
lord, but terribly deaf. Fish, the village
painter, was afflicted in the same wa^v
One day they were sitting hy themsel
ves in the bar room. Wing was bfehind
the counter, waiting for the next fcasto
mer ; while h ish was lounging before 1 the
fire with a thirsty look, casting sljeep’s
eyes occasionly at Wing’s decanters and
wishing most devoutly that some oue
would come in and treat. •
A traveler from tbe South, on his-way
to Brandon,i stepped in to inquire the dis
tance. Going up to the counter he said :
Can you tell me, sir, how. far 1 it : is to
Brandon !
“Brandy?” says tbe ready landlord
jumgmg up; “ yes sir, I have some,” at
the same time handing down a decanter of
the precious liquid. ' |
“ You misunderstand me,” says the
stranger; “I asked how far it .Wfia to
Brandon ?” "
“They call it pretty good brandy,'? says
Wing. “Will you take sugar with' kl”

gress ignores their names, their sxisteace,
and, being dead, the grave contains no
more inert, worthless earthy than ii did
before. They become chronin nuisances;
they have no local habitation or name, in
so far as regards their worth or value* and
from day to day, in the haunts oflmsy
life they pass current as unourrent fhodi

exertion they exhibit is that which enables
them to be eternally in somebody’s way,
to the great hindrance of that somebody's
progress and business. They never do
any special harm, and never accomplish
any good. They die only, when they get
too lazy or indolent to use their respirato*

Tub h Dignity of Bein' Niggers.’*

burg (Va.) Express, of a late date in this
wise : , ". '• V
In front of the Central Warehouse a
philosophical darkey, leaning lazily against
one of the wheels of a dray, thus deliver

disposing of himself similarly: MAH

hisselfioto money to save his life. More'n

A Shout Ceremony. —-Old Squire
Jack as he was familiary called, was for
many years a justice of the peace in----;
and in addition to issuing warrantsaod
executions, was frequently called upon to
perform the marriage ceremony.
One hitter cold night, aboutl2 o’clock,
he was aroused from his v sleep by a tndck
at the door. In no very amiable-mood-he
jumped from his warm bed, and.tlurowipg
up the window called out: . .. f
“Who’s there?” T
“ Halloa, Squire,” was the reply, " ire
want to get married.” ; v - .
“You're one I and now be off with you!"
roared the Squire; and bringing downthe
window with a crash, ho hopped into bsd
again..
“They are living man and wife to this
day," the Squire always added, when he
told the story. ; ’
