Coma nil ye who lika gool singing,
Closr your voice, ici thorn ringing;
Hero's n loco song before in,
Here's the tuno and heie's llm chorut:
Get out the way old sir Harry,
Tim Coon ticket we don't carry,
'Coons in eighteen hundred forty
Hung their sungs both loud nd hearty,
NVeni it strong for Captain Tyler,
Shoved him in and burst their bilcr;
Get ou the way poor old Johnny,
Coons have squandur'd nil your money
Tfnw the Coons are organising
And their secret punn duvising,
"All around fie lot they're tramping,
Did refuted lies now vamping,
Gel out the way with your stories,
Coonies you can'r como it e'er us.
"For we see the noon committees
All uhoul the towns and cities,
Plotting schemes both mean and dirty,
To sustain their sinking party;
Get out the way old Kentucky,
You have always been unJucky.
Oonr.s are loud in Harry's praises,
All their papers lie like blazes;
Their old (jamoa ihey now are playing,
And they'll soon commence pipe laying,
Get out the way, though you cheat us
Your coon candidate can't beat us,
"Come ye coons anil let us reason.
You can't win the rice this season,
"You must wail a few years longer,
Till you get a nag thai' stronger;
Get out the way, you're mistaken,
Clay's t used up horse, wo reckon,
You can't raise so strong a patty
As you did in eighteen forty;
Cider's scarce, end coonies know it,
Bo you needn't try to 'go
Gel out ",ne way old sir Harry,
In Itentuek you'd better tairy.
"You may cut ash poles and fix 'em,
And with other trappings mix 'cm;
'Hut if yoit'cah't swillr.or rum it,
How the duce d'ye think to como it!
- Get out tho way, though you cherish
-Such vain hopes, they soon must peris
"Now llietooriics, don't berate us,
This advice wo give you gratis:
Don't attempt to run such pacers
n the course with loco racors;
Get out ihe way with your folly,
Clay can't come it yet, by golly,
'Keep Bir Harry in ihe stablo
Till you get one better abls .
To contend with loco trotters,
'iVr we've got some teal snorters;
Get oui the way old Kentucky,
If you run you'll bo nnlucky.
We've a horse thai wo call Martin,
Thai's 'he ono vo thing of starting;
He's got spunk as well as bottom,
"Your coon ponies he'll out tiot 'cm;
, Get out the way, for wo reckon
Yonr old beast can't save his bacon.
Then thero's Dick that killed Tecumseh,
lie is neither stiff nor clumsy:
He could beat Kentuck, that's sarlin,
'But our preference is for Martin:
Gel out tha way, wo all know it
Your old spavined horao can't go it.
We'vo more nags lhatwe might mention,
Hut wo'll wait tho great Convention:
Then we'll start one good as any,
kOnj that will outrun sir Henry;
Get out the way you old coonies,
Hilliics too, and all your cronies,
Now ye cuaning coons remember,
We shall try you next November;
Then will come your bitter wailing,
"Up stilt river you'll be sailing,
Get out of the way, you can't go it,
Soon the ballot box will show it !

can, therefore, be recommended to familiea in
every rai.k of society, without stmt ot reserve, and
if it be deaiioble to put into thr handM of the rising
gcnif atson agreeable und instructive reading, as a
set-oil to the Isnglish and French novels circulating
in such jnoluesion, Chambere ' Jeurnal la a worll
eminently adapted to that purposo
In order to put this work within the reach of nil
classes of th public, we have detcrmin A to istim
il at tho very low price of one dollar and a half pct
(tnnurnnw also to furnish It to accntsata discount '
from this prico of thirtv-thret and a third per cent.
And in order to disseminate the publication stHt
more extensively we havo determined to give in
dividual or companies of individtuls who may er
dcr t'K copies the advantages possessed by agents,
and to extend to them also the benefit of the dis- ,
count. A remittance of five dollars thcn.providcd
it bo in funds at par in tho city of New York, oi
not more than Ine per cent discount, will command
fivo annual copies. The , publication is weekli
contaivs eight puges, and is printed in the quart
lorm, with neat typo ami on good paper. It
(.carcely nccctsary to state that the low price
which rt e oiler this woik, will oblige us to. adhei
