Well, fun dem hob ich uf course nix g' -

I Wick is in the Stait of Kentucky), June
09, Iso9. The die is cast. The guilloteen
lwz fallen—l am no longer Postmaster at
l'ont'etlerit X Roads, which is in the state
of Kentucky. The place which knowd
me once will know me no more f)rever—
the paper with Deekin Pograu► takes will
be handed out by a u igger—a nigger will hey
the openin UN' letters addressed to parties
residin hereabouts containin remit tances
a uigger will hey the ritlin in/ letters ad-
dresst to lottery managers and exiractin
the sweets therefrom—a Digger will be--
but I can't dwell upon the disgnstin theme
no longer.
1 bed bin in Washington two weeks as
sislin the Cimeashens uv that city to put
their foot upon the heads uv the cussed
niggers who :dill, content to accept the
situashen and remain ez they alluz hey
bin, inferior beins. To say 1 hed succeed
ed is a week expreshen. I organized a
raid onto em so effech»ally ez to drive no
less than thirty uv them out of employ
ment, twenty-seven of Wkil WII, compelled
to steel their bread, wich give us a splen
did opportunity to show up the nateral
cussidness of the Afrikin race--which we
improved.
On my arrival at the Corners, I knew
to wunst that suthin was wrong. I lied
rid over from Secessionville on llascom's
mule, wich he lied sent over for me, and
ez I rid up to his door, I knew suthin hed
happened. The bottles behind the bar
wuz draped in black ; the barrels wuz fes
tooned gloomily (wich is our yoosual
method uv expressin grief' at public ca
lamities), and the premises generally wore'
a funeral aspeek.
"Wat is it ?" gasped I.
Bascom returned not a word, but waved
his hand toward the Post Offlis.
Iluehin thither, I bustid open the door,
and reeled almost agin the wall I At the
yeneral delivery wuz the yrinnin face ay as
nigger I and settin in my chair wuz Joe
Bigler, with Pollock beside him, smokin
pipes and latlin over suthin in a noospaper.
Bigler taught sight uv me,, and dartin
out, pulled me inside them hitherto sacred
precinks.
"Permit me," sed he jeeringly, "to in
terdoose you to your successor, Mr. Cee
zer Lubby."
"My successof What does this mean?"
"Show him, Ceezer."
And the nigger, every tooth in his head
shinin, handed me a commishun duly
made out and sign e d. I saw it all at a
glance. In imitashen uv our Secretary
Boric, I had left my biznis in the hands
Of a depetty, wich is now the favorite
method of doin public bizuis. It arrived
the day after I left, and 'maker Gavitt,
who distribited the mail, gave it to the
cuss.
Pollock made oat the bonds and went
onto em himself, and in ten days the corn
mishen come all regler, whereupon Bigler
backt the nigger and took forcible possess
ion uv the office. While I was absent they
hed a percesshun in honor of the joyful
event, sed perseshun eonsistin ttv Pollock,
Bigler and the new Postmaster, who
marched through the streets with the stars
and stripes, banners and sich. Bigler re
markt that the percession wuzn't large,
but it wuz talented, eminently respectable,
and extremely versateel. lie (Bigler)
carried the flag and played the fife, Pol
lock carried a banner with an inscription
onto it "slund the loud timbre! o'er
Egypt's dark sea," and played the bass
drum ; while the nigger bore aloft a ban
ner inscribed "where Afric's sunny foun
ta.us roll down the goL'en sands," with
his commisshun pinned onto it, playin in
addishen a pair of anshent cymbals.
Bigler remarkt further that the percesh
un created a positive sensashun at the
Corners, which I shood think it wood.—
"It wuzn't," said this tormentin cuss,
"very much like the grand perceshun wich
took place when you received yoor com
misshun. Then the whites uv the Corners
wuz elated, for they spectid to git wat
yoo owed em in doo time, and the niggas
wuz correspondingly deprest. They slunk
into byways and sideways ; they didn't
hold up their heads, and they dusted out
ez fast ez they cood git. At this pepes
hun there wuz a change. The tuggers
lined the streets ez we passed, grinnin ex
ultinly, and the whites wuz deprest cor
respondinly. Its singler that at the Cor
ners the two races can't feel good both at I
the same time."
My arrival Navin_ become known, by the
°muds j
DE
Med
Bascom.
"Pay me what you owe me PI ejakelated
Dekin Pogram, and the same remark was
made by all uv em with wonderful yoon
animity. Whatever differences uv opla
yun there might be on other topics, on
this they they were all agreed.
"Gentlemen I" I commenced, backing
up into a corner, "is this generous ? Is
this the treatment I hey a right to expect ?
Is this—"
I shoold hey gone on at length, but jist
at that minnit Pollock, Joe Bigler and the
new Postmaster entered. Room wuz
made for em and cheers offered em, but
they declined to sit.
"I hey binds !" Bed this Postmaster,
"disagreeable biznis, but it's my oltishel
dooty to perform it."
At the word "oftishel" comin from his
lips I groaned, which WRI3 ekkoed by those
present.
"I hey in my hand," continyood he,
"de bond giben by my predecessor, onto
which is de names uv Geo. W. Bliscom,
Elkanah Po r ,oTam, Hugh M'Pelter and

uv the amount thereof, I am directed by
de Tartment to bring soot to wunst
ii , ainst the sed sureties."
Never before did I so appreciate A.
Johnson and his Postmaster-General Mtn
,
dill. Under their administration wat
Postmaster wuz ever pulled up for steelin
anythin ? Eko answers.
This wuz the feather that broke the
camel's back.
"Wat !" exclaimed Bascom, "shei I
lose wat yoo owe mt., and then pay for
wat yoo've stole ?"
"Steel 1 lose the money," sed Pograni,
"which I lent you, and in addishen pay a
Abolishen government fur property you've
contiscated ?"
"But the property is here," remarkt
to Bascom, "you've got it tll. Why not
return it, and save all this trouble ?"
"Nat wood I have then for the whisky
you've consoomed ?" he ejaekelated
vish
usly. "It's all I've got from you, and I've
btu keepin you for four years."
"Didn't that property pay you for the
liker?" I asked, but Bascom wuz in no
humor for tiggers, and he pitched into me,
at wich pleasant pastime they all followed
soot. But for Joe Bigler they wood hey
killed me. Ez it wuz, they blaekt both
my eyes and rolled me out onto the side
walk, shuttin the door agin me.
Ez I heard that door slain to, I felt that
1 wuz lost. .No gilts! no money! and
1 Bascom's closed agin me! Kin there he a
harder fate? I passed the nice with a
farmer three miles out, who bein sick,
hedn't been to the Corners, and conse
kently he knowd nothing ny the changes.
1 heard the next day the result of the
ruskshcu. Bascom returned sich uv the
property ez hedn't been sold and con
swilled, which consisted uv the boxes.
The chairs lied been broken up in the fre
quent shindies with occur at his place, the
locks bed been sold to farmers, who yoosed
cm on their smoke houses, the bags had
been sold for wheat, andi so on. The
stamps, paper, twine and sich higgered up
three hundred and forty-six dollars, wick
wuz three hundred more dollars than there
wuz in the Corners.
Bascom advanced the forty-six dollars,
and the three hundred wuz borrowed uv
a banker at Seeessionville, who took mort
gages on the fitrins nv the imprudent
bondsmen for sekoority. Uv course I
can't go to back the Corners under existin
circumstances. It would be uncomforta
ble for me to live there ez matters have
terminated. I shel make my way to Wash
ington to see of I can't get myself electid
ez Manager uv a Labor Association, and
so make a livin till there comes a change
in the Administration. I would thsten
myself to A. Johnson, but unforchinitly
there ain't enough in him to tie to. I
would as soon think uv tyin myself to a
i car wheel in a storm at sea.
