Comio Geography America.
America, or as it is mora rtroncrlv
termed, the United States of America,
is a lengthy pitch of ground, stretch
ing North and South from Boston as
far as can be seen through a piece of
smoked glass with the naked eye.
Jt was formerly supposed to be 4,-
800 miles long, but from a lute mea
surement it was found to be 2,400 miles
The United States, in power and ex
tent, wallops all creation. It is the
most grandiferous, giirautic, galorious
country on the face of the green earth,
any where between sunrise and sunset.
The natives are more enlightened, talk
more bunkum, make better cocktails,
manufacture more greenbacks, eat
more pumpkin pie, drive laster trotting
horses, chow more tobacco, expectorate
more freely, have more steamboat ex
plosions, longer rivers, larger prairies,
more quack doctors, less bitrcer Bunk
er Hill Monuments, smaller self es
teem, larger national debt, richer shod
dy and petroleum aristocrats, larger
eagles and buffaloes, mofe Mormons
aud more Star Spangled Bai.ners than
the natives of the Sandwich Islands
and New Jersey together.
1 be copartnership started in 17ib
with 13 (which, kneadless to say, is a
bakers dozen) of States. The rest have
been taken in since. The Southern
States considered themselves taken in
considerably, if any dependence can
bo placed in the statements of Jeff
Davis, a- celebrated historian, and a
native of Connecticut bv his first wife.
The inhabitants reside principally
in brown stone houses, and depend, to
a great extent, for subsistence, upon
eating and drinking. They eat pump
kin pie and tobacco.and drink Bourbon
and "Jersey Lightnen." The climate
is temperate, which speaks well for the
extraordinary exertions of John B.
' The principal State is called Massa
chusetts. This State derived its name
from the following curious incident:
Several years ago, a colored African
slave of the negro persuasion, cultivat

i r T v- j. .1 T" ;
ixisiou. vjne uay, as one oi tne r uri
tana was passing the slave, he asked
the contraband if he used tobacco.
"No, sah," replied Sambo. "I hoes
it, but Mama ehewg it."
John Quincy Adams was so sensibly
struck with the originality of the idea
that he immediately proposed to the
"select men" that they should choose
it for the name of the State.
Boston, its principal village, is uni
versally known as the "Hub" of the
Universe, around- which all creation
revolves. Its chief productions are
Crooked btcets and big Organs. It has
long been famous for its Baked Beans
and Brown Bread, (AVw Jieaiuv.
John Brown was bred iu Virginia, but
a singularly beautiful, classical ballad,
supposed to have becu written by Bret
llarte, states J.lmt at present "his body
lies mouldering in the groun !.") Bos
ton is justly celebrated for i( literati.
The greatest living baid is residing in
the "Hub." He is tailed the Hub
Bard and is supposed to be a lineal de
cendent of Old Mother Hubbard, an
adopted wife of Cotton Mather, one of
the Pilgrim step-fathers. Boston is
also noted for its Com mon Schools,
which are as free as the wild ante
lope. The Schools are not called Com
mon Schools because they are on the
Common, yet they are uncommon fine
Schools. The Common's cool in Win
ter, and the boys and girls who attend
it poud-er studiously when they are
learning to skate.
Salem which is noted for its Witches,
isnluasaully situated in the vicinity
if Massachusetts. Tho report, that
the Witch of Eudor had requested to
end her days there, lacks confirmation.
The inhabitants subsist principally on
Sandwiches and are generally well
bred. They are also largely engaged
in shipping. They build vessels and
tail' em. In ancient times it was gen-,
erally supposed that the human race
was divided into two sexes male aud
female. This idea is, however, hardly
correct, for by referring to our atlas.it
was at las-t discovered that there is a
Middlesex iu Massachusetts.
Plymouth was the landing place of
the Pilgrim Fathers, who came over
in the great bastreu, commanded by
' Christopher Columbus, which is graph
ically described iu Byron's Pilgrims
Piogress, showing how well the pil
grims progressed while crawling up
the rock. Ueneral George Washing
ton is generally known as the pilgrim
"Father of his country." When quito
a small boy he cut dswn a dried ap
ple tree to show his mother that he
couldn't tell a lie. On Plymouth rock
the first cradle of Liberty was rocked
by one of the Pilgrim Mothers,

its rum aud fisheries, but Nan-tuck it
New Hampshire is principally in
habited bv mountains. They belong
to the White family, and consist of
seven or eight peaks, each one aver
aging about 6,000 feet high which is
very good for high. The natives have
a peak-uliur appearance, ana live
chiefly on shoddy tourists who go there
for a change of climb. The Notch, a
: deep, narrow gorge about two miles
long through the mountains, has quite
a gorge-ous appearace.
Maine is pleasantly located in East
port, nearly opposite to Grand Manan.
Grandma Nan is Baid to be tho "old
est inhabitant" in that region. An
"onreliable cum" from Noo Jersey
said that "Maine was not worth a
dam." This statement is diabolically
false. The Kenebeo is crossed by a'
prodigious dam creating numerous mill
sites. The Millcite tribe of Indians
are located here in large quantities.
Calais, although generally supposed to
be a peaceable little town, is noted for
its "mills." The population, are chif-
ly Mill writes. The Millcrite doctrine
is the established religion.
Pennsylvania was settled by ing-
lish Quake's under W. Penn, who is
noted for his up-write deelings with
the Indians. Being honest, he could
not be called a steel Pcnn. Cincinnati
has been made pig-culiarly famous by
its pen, having been settled by the de
scendants of Ham. Phila Jelphia, its
capital, is capitally laid out in regular
streets. A large amount of capital
has probably been laid but to produce
such a fine appearance a good deal
of work is done on the square there.
Pete Roleum is the well-thiest man in
State. He owns several ile-lands, and
is supposed to be a descendant of the
Bore-bons. In fuctp he says he has
been on the "Bourbon" thrown.
Oregon is so called after a Mormon
gentleman O'Regan. It is chiefly noted
for being the residence of "Low the
poor Indian" and his family. They
depend principally on scalping for a
livelihood, and barely manage, by so
doing, to "make both ends meet."

of flourishing a tomahawk says "they

A Maryland paper has the following

A Wisconsin paper tells about a

An observant young man in Port
