A Cabinet Meeting—Letters from Rev. Hen

(wicli is in theStait uv Kentucky,) ,-
November 7, lKtjti. )
1 wuz called to Washington by our
patron Saint, the President, to comfort
his wounded sperit. There ain't no
disguisin the fact, the sperit of Androo
Johnson is wounded. He hez endoor
ed the slings and arrers uv more ont
rajiis fortune than any other man who
hez lived since the days uv liamlick
more, indeed, than liamlick endoored
twict over. Hamlick's lather wuz
pizoned and bis mother married agin
afore her mourning clothes wuz wore
out, suthin on savin, prudent woman
would do; hut what wuz that to wat.
A. Johnson eudoors every day?—
The Cabinet meetin to wich I wnz
summoned wuz called for the purpose
uv sheddin a tear or two over the elec
tion returns, and to consider a variety
uv letters wich His Eggscoliency had
received within a few days. I may re
mark that the Cabinet hod a gloomy
and mildewed look.
The fust wuz from Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher. Mr. Beeeher remarked that
he hed the highest possiblerespeek for
the ortis wunst held by the good Wash
ington, the great Adams and the saint
ed Linkin. lie omitted remarkin any
thin about Peerce and Bookanan out
uv regard for the feelins uv the pres
ent incumbent, which if he'd red his
tory correct, wuz a ardent Mipporter
uv the Adininistrashens uv both uv
them men, wich he considered stairs
upon the pages uv American history
wich ho cood wish mite be obliterated.
But wat he desired to say wuz that
lie hod a higher regard for the good
opinion uv mankind in general than lie
hed tor the good opinion uv the acci
dental incumbent uv any offis and ez
he hed, in a hour uv temporary meu
tal aherrashun, which hed happily
passed, endorsed the Administrashen,
wich insanity hed worked evil unto
him, ho repeated ez a simple act uv
justice that the President should cause
it to he known that he, (Beecher) wus
not considered by the Administrashen
ez a supporter thereof.
' I do this,' sed the writer,' bccoz the
impression that I am in the confidence
uv yoor Eggseellency, wich is on fort u
nately abroad, hez seriously damaged
Trooly yoors, et settry.
The read in uv this letter wuz fuller
ed by a minit uv profound silence wich
wuz broken by the President:
' I him pass,' sed the great man,
who hez tiao Jlrtpotism uv the postofli
sis, ' let him pass, lint hero is another/
sed he, bustin into tears, ' read that.'
It wuz from Gen. Custar, him uv the
yaller hair, wich hed some reputashun
doorin the war ez a cavaly camman
der. It wuz to the same otlect. He
lied when he spozed that the policy uv
the President, wich he esteemed ez he
must any man who held the exalted
position wunst okkepied by the good
Washinton, the great Jefferson and the
'The ungrateful dog doesn't respect
ME/ sed Androo, 'its the oftiis I till/
and he bust into a fresh flood.
When he spozed the President's
policy wuz sich ez a soljor and patriot
cood endorse, he endorsed it But he
diskivered that it led him, back tore
most, into company wich, doorin the
late war he hed alluz visited lace tore
most and on hossback, and therefore,
to save his reputation, be must beg
that the President wood give it out,
that he (Gen. Custar) wnz not nor
never h:d bin a sujiportor tiv his p1 i
cy, and ohli'ge,
Yoors troolv, ez before.
I wnz inu h--arthroken at this to
make any reply, ami Cowan and Doo
little wuz in the same fix. The Kur
neluy wich wnz given to C'ustar to keep
him in posishen, hed been promised to
a diinokratic captin, who wuz led by
a company in the first Bull Run fight,
and who threw up the next da}' in dis
gust, not likin the manner in wich the
war wuz conducted, but the kurnelcy
wuz gone and Custar too, wat wuz
worse, there wuz no sich thing to be
thot uv ez dismissin him. The entire
company yoonitcd in minglin their
The next letter wuz red by Seward,
ez it wuz eddressed to hira It wuz
from Raymond He opened with ihe
romark that for the Presidential oflis
he tied the highestrespeek.
Aside from the considerashun that
it hed been okkepied bj' the good
Washinton, the great Adams, and the
sainted Linkin, the President might he

bavin so large a number of helpless
children to provide for, besides hed a

There wuz 2 or three more. Gen.

who wuz sedooced into takin a Post

uv the pillars uv the Democrasy, lie

for the high offis restrained him from

where Democracy wuz loaded down

him that the President wuz ainkubus.

4 of Di iinkard^
Tho most foolish predicament a man
can get into is to got drunk. Tn drunk
enness every man shows his strongest
side, and most ardent passion. There
are six kjnds of drunkards, and if you
will go into a drinking place where
there are a dozen men under the influ
ence ol liquor you will be sure to find
these six different characters, repre
senting different animals.
Ihe first is ape-drunk He leaps,
and sings, and yells, and dances, mak
ing all sorts of grimaces and cutting
up all sorts ol '• monkey shines" to ex
cite the laughter of his follows! Ob,
terribly silly is the drunken clown.
Ihe second is tiger-drunk. He
breaks the bottles, breaks the chairs,
breaks the heads of fellow caroueers,
and is full of blood and thunder. His
eyes are fired with vengeance, and his
soul raves with murderous fury. Of
this sort are those who abuse their
Ibe third is bog drunk. He rolls in
the dirt on tho floor, slobbers and
grunts, and going into the street makes
bis lied in the first ditch or filthy cor
ner he may happen to fall into. Hois
heavy, lumpish and sleepy, and cries
in a grunting way for a little more
The fourth is puppy drunk. He will
weep lor kindness, and whine bis love
and bug you in bis arms, and kiss you
with bis slobbery lips and proclaim
how much he loves you. You are the
best man be ever saw, and lie will lay
down his money or his life for you.
Ihe filth is owl-drunk. He is wise
in his own conceit. No man must dif
fer with him for his word is law. He
is true in politics, and all matter must
be taken as authority. His arm is the
strongest, his voice the sweetest, his
horse the fleetest, his turnips the larg
est, his town the finest of ull in tho
room or land.
The sixth and last animal of our me
nagerie is the fox-drunk man. lie is
crafty, ready to trade horses and cheat
