one of trouble and national perplexities. We are
! M teoed with war. Ail classes of business U depress
and money is most emphatically cash article. Busi
jß .,r cities is stagnated-merchants failing and me
out of employment. In fact, almost all business,
-.'it tilling the soil, has come to a dead stand. Yet.
[•riihstandiog all this depression of business, people
v eat. and the farmer must raise enough adequate to :
• demand. Thousands of farmers and larmer s sous
ie'eaiisted and gone to fight their country's battles
.ft soldiers must be fed, and it behooves every farmer, j
i v,ar to put in a double crop of grain and vegetables.
~e war continues any length or time, provisions of all ,

SLANG PHRASES. —This is certainly an
inventive age, and the progression that Young America
is making in phrasiology and manufactured expressions,
most emphatically demands a dictionary of their vocab.
ulary, in order that the unsotisticated listener may com
prehend their peculiar language. For instance, if Young
America is embarrassed in pecuniary matters, he has
" uary ted," or "he can't raise the soap." Moßey is
known to them fey various names, such as " tin," " ahi
| ners," " the ready," " the auriferous,"" spondulics," Ac,
and if he has a duty to perform," he can't do it too quick"
or " too much." ll he gets iuto difficulty,he has a" muss'
or a " set to," and he reproves angry vehcinauce by sug
gesting to tlie enraged party that he " needn't put him
self into a cast iron presperation." He has no particular
residence, but " hangs out" or " stops." In cases where
common people pay. Young America" shells out," " po
nies up" or " lorks over," and if he asks for credit he
wauts to " run lus face." Young America never becomes j
: intoxicated, but frequently " goes ou a bender," gets a
" brick in his hat," " blind drunk," or " slightly set up." j
If be has any peculiarities that is " his style," and his j
j favorite ejaculation is " bully !" If melancholy he is " out [
! of sorts," " down in the mouth," or " got the blues," and f
if his purse is empty he is " strapped" or " hard up."— !
If be rides out he has a " two fot-j nag" and generally |
holds the " ribbons" at arms length. If you contradict )
liia, he protests that he " wants none of your lip," con- j
sequently you must " dry up," " simmer down," " cut it
short," or " cork up and bust."
These are but a lew of the modern expressions in gen
j eral use with Y'oung America. Altogether they would [
i swell a volume larger than Webster's Unabridged.
