"1ad tola U3 gals that wlion Lo got through harvGst he'd take us all down to the city; bo wo put on our broad brimmed suu-bonnots, to preserve our complexions, and set to work raking hay for we ex pected to cut a great swell in the city. Wo worked smart for dad, so as to have him got through, we were so anxious, just like one is when they're waiting for their beau to come Sunday night. " Jane Ann, she made her borage; Bet, she altered over her lilack silk, and I trimmed my Tuscan with red. whito and blue flowers. It looked stylish, 1 tell ye. Well, wo were moro'n a fortnight fixing up, before dad was ready to start. Final lie bitched in the old marc, and wo six gals bundled in. '"Twasa splendid morning, and every thing looked as serene as frisking lambs in a pasture. Dad drove up side of tho park, as he called it ; it looked liko a great pasture, though if they'd had any sense they'd cut down some of them trees, if thoy expected to raiso half a crop, Most all the ground was covered by the shade, and you know that grass that grows iu the shade aiu't half as sweet as that which has tho sun. "Wo went across the street and got sev en two cent glasses of small beer, just to wash the dust out of our throats; when we all want back to the wagon and got in.- Just then we saw a traiuiug company com ing down tho street; the band was playing Top goes tho wescl' like sixty. Dad reined up tho boss and axed a man if the Mexican war had broko out ag in. Tho sassy coot, ho bust right out a laughing, and says he : " 'I gues-s you don't tako tho papers up in your part of the couutry. do you?' "Dad never answered him, and I would n't if I'd been him ; ho just hit tho old mure a clip with the whip and sung out, 'g'lang.' "Whcu tho military company got closo by tho wagon, tho musio put right into it as loud as it could. The old inaro'e four teen years old, but if you'd seen herprauco you'd thought her a co't. Dad hollorcd at her but sho only acted worso. Tho foro wagon wheel struck something in tho road, when tho old marc civo an awful jump and Angcliuo and I, who wcro bittiug on the back seat, went right out of tho wagon kerslam. You sco tho seat tipped back, aud wo wcro so heavy that over wo went, light into tho mud. It was dry enough out homo, but Ret declared that sho saw a sprinkling pot goiug up tho streets, drawu by a boss. For tho life of mo I can't toll what thoy should do that for; mud's bad enough when wo are obligod to have it without waking it. "It's a wonder that wo didn't break our Kecks. Tho gala and dad wcro cenamost scared to death, but tho folks that woro looking on seemed mighty tickled about it. Dad ho just spit out a littio of his mind right on tho spot, and ho told them thoy didn't know no bettor than to laugh at an unfortunate fomalo's misfortunes 1 "I wouldn t have cared a snap if I had' n't give my lu5c.au such a jam, Angelino daubed her face all over mud, aud I went j with her to a pump that was there on tho j pari:, auu she washed Lor face. Dad ; bought a cocoa nut and cracked it on tho iron fenco that was around tho pasture. After wo ato that up he axed us if wo didn't want to sco a stoamboat. Of courso wo said ycs;so he fastened tho hossgood and strong, and wc started. 'Twas a killing way to walk, but wo got there finally '"Twas as pretty as a picturo', that steamboat. It was right closo up to what they called the dock, and there was a thing made out of boards to walk on to it on. Dad went fust, and wo gak follercd. I toll yo it was furnished as nico inside as Deacon Brown's parlor ; tho wood was corved and golded. It was splendid, and no mistake ! "What puzzled mo was were the folks slept. Dad took us down stairs and show ed us some little shelvcr all arouud tho room ; and then wo all wcut down into the kitchen. I told a nigger woman who was there how to make some gingerbread; for sho was housekeeper for tho steamboat, and I thought I'd be doing a favor; but tho pesky thing, sho grinned clear round to her cars, and showed her teeth and rolled up her eyes, and says she : "I guess you'so from the rural districts? "I never answered her, but kept right straight after dad. He took us down into the place in the basement of the steamboat where they had their machinery and steam arrangemcuts ; but they had such a big fire down there, and was so pesky hot that we soon left. We hadn't any moro than got through the chambers of tho boat and up into the parlor, then dad heard a man say, 'Well, there goes the bell ; tho boat s agoiu' to start '.' " 'Cut sticks, gals,' said dad, and wc" run with all our might, dad right closo af ter us. Wo got across us gals tho plank concern, and then turned round to sec if dad was coming. They wore pull ing the great plunk into the boat; dad looked scared; ho ruu, and tho men who wero pulling iu the plauk larfcd an hol lorcd out: " 'Go it, country 1' "Jest that minute there como a man runniu ', pufiin' and blowin', trying to get on tho boat aforo it left. IIo was in such a pucker that ho 'bout knocked mo over. Ho didn't sec dad ; they both sprung at the same time tho man for the boat, and dad for tho land. Plump they btruok right agin each othor, and right dowu into the briny deep they went. Dad said af terwards that tho water tasted about as much liko Csh or pork brine as anything that he knowed on. "Tho folks on tho boat, which was go ing way off by this time, cheered just liko a Fourth of July celebration, and tho poo plo on tho shoro hollered and larfcd. I was so mad that I could have slapped them right in tho face, and says dad sputter ing, kicking and splattering ' 'Laugh at a fellow's misfortuues .' "JJut there was some real Kind men they took some long poles with things kin der shaped liko fish. hooks on tho ends thoy called them boat hooks. Tho strango man could swim, and ho swum and scram bled up on to tho shoro, but them men they hitched them ere hooks right into tho slack of dad's trousers and drawed him right out of tho water. Waru't ho a sight! he looked just liko a cat that had becu ducked into a mill-pond. "Let's go'n' tako somcthin1, said tho stranger, smiliii'; but dad looked as blue as an indigo bag ; he didn't no what else to iay so says he: "Don't caro if I do.' "Tho strango man wont ahead and wc and dad followed him. Biuicby we come to a placo where the lowor panes of tho window whero whito, so you couldn't seo through 'cm. Tbink's I that must bo a great thing, that must. What's glass good for if you can't look through it ? Dad told us to wait outside, and ho and tho strauger went in. Angelino and I stood up on tip-too and pooped through tho up per panes of tho window. Dad was drink ing something poured out of a tumbler; they seemed to bo on first rato tcrnn a talkin' aud luughin'. Wo gals got cena most tired to death waitin' out there. Dad and tho Etraugcr kopt drinkin' and drinkin more than a dozen times, aud then dad como to tho door, and says he : (C 'Oomo in gals and get some calm soup. "So wo went in, and dad called on the man that tended to fetch on his calm soup for eight, and plenty of broth. Then the etrango man got some sassaparilla for us gals, aud some, of that other drink for him and dad. By tho time wo got tho sassaparilla swallowed 'twas beautiful to drink, but as cold as if it had como out 0f tho north cast corner of tho North Polo tho soup was ready aud all smoking hot; but whilo wo'd been cobblin' our drink down liko chickcus swallowing dough, dad and the stranger had driuked two or three times. "Well, wo sot down to a table, and tho way wc shoveled in tho soup was a caution. After we'd finished dad told tho man to fill cm up again, then ho and the stranger took another drink. Well, after wo got through, dad shook hands with tho stran ger, and we started lo go back to tho park where wc had left the old marc hitcliGd. "Dad hadn't any more than got out of ; tho door than he fell full leught right down into thu dirt, which stuck all over his new clothes. He got up and went on a few feet further, and then down ho went again. Angelino and I raised him, for wo were afcerod that he might have hurt him. If you'd believe it, the very first step be went down head first; that kinder madded me, and says I: "'Hain't you big enough to walk?' "Somo little boys began to snicker and laugh, aud says dad, tryiu' to raise up. kinder stutterin': " 'Larf at a feller's misfortin'I " 'What's tho matter, dad V says I kin der takin' pity on bin, for I thought tho poor critter might be sick. He didn't say anything, but kept a hiccuping. " 'It's wind on his stummick,' said An gcliuo. " 'Clams,' said dad, kinder mournfully . "Now I'd always hcird tell that clams were mighty unhealthy in the summer season. 1 never knew tho symntons ot colleray afore it's kinder curious how it j wiH throw folks down. I thought the best thing we could do was to 6troak it back to the park aud cct homo with dad just as soon as wo could, for 1 was afeared though I didn't say anything to tho gals about it that some of us would bo took. I believe I should myself, if I hadn't been so anxious 'bout dad and the rest on 'em. "Angelino and I just pulled him up and took him by the arm and walked along. 'Twas a dreadful tedious job, I toll ye, pullin', hauliu' aud luggin' him along, and wo got completely tuckered out by the time we got to tho park. "I don't know why folks should exult at other folks' misfortunes, but everybody that wc passed grinnod and laughed liko monkeys, well, they say it's humau na tur. "When wc got to tho park dad seemed to foci considerable better. Wo sot him down on the gras'i and let him lean back against a trco, and then I w;nt and bought a pint bottle full of good old cherry brau dy, for 1 knowed it would bo good for him. I took a swallow or so myself, and then mado tho gals drink too, 'I ho rest that was left I poured down dad's throat. "Then wo unhitched tho old marc and got ready to go homo. I told Angelino to drive, and I would have dad set on tho seat with mc. Tho gals all got in but An- i gclino and me ; wo h'istcd dad up into mo wagon, auu men we goi in. " 'Just put tho old niaro over tho road,' said I. "Angelino hit her a whacking dip with tho end of the lines. She'd been standing there so long, and got so restless and un easy, that sho givo an awful jump and sent dad olean out of tho wagon, and almost jerked my ncek off from my shoulders. Angelino stoppod the niaro as soon as sho could, aud wo piled out. Just then a man with a blue coat all covered over with brass buttons, just liko a military officer, como up. IIo had a big star gilt just like his buttotis. " 'What's the matter?' ho axed. " 'Why, ho fell into the ocean off tho steamboat, aud then ho ate two bowls of calm soup, and 1 don't bcliovo it agreed with his stummick.' " 'What's ho drinked?' said he, kinder laughing, hough I didn't seo anything to laugh at. " Somcthin' iu a tumbler,' answered Jano Ann, taking tho words out of my mouth and answering beforo I could speak. " 'Yes, I should think so,' ho said, so kinder impudent and uubelovin', and then, says ho 'I'm a polico oflioer j I guess I'll tako caro of him;1 aud ho roached out to tako dad by tho coat collar, whcu I just stepped up, aud says " 'I rather rccon you wou'tl' " Angelino and I lifted dad into tho wagon, and wo hustled in ourselves and started, taking care to got a going easy. I don't belicvy the old marc ever did any taller trottin' than she did then. "Dad was the sickest crcatur' going home I ever saw, and I don't seo why mnrni was so mad with him when wo got home; for my part, I felt mighty sorry for him, and so did tho rest of us, I don't know what's tho reason, but dad has nev er been to tho city since, without martn's boon with him, aud he's ato cl ama many a time since and not been sick, as ho was that time." Gleason's Literar y Companion, Congress and tho Nigger. Congress is still busy with tho nigger ijucbiiuu, tu lite oeuaic. tjn tuo lutii, a I niotiou was made by Mr. Powell of Ken tueky to striko from thu confiscation bill ' that portion which authorizes tho Prosi- dent to oaganize and employ negroes to put down the rebellion, but was defeated. In the House, Mr. Richardson of Illi nois believes that the strcngt of the army was sufficeut to put down rebellion, but the indications were that another and inferior race were to be armed and uniformed and placed on an equality with tho whites. The legislation of Congress is almost exclu sively with regard to the negro. They have abolished slavery here, and to the contrabands rations are daily distributed. Where is the evidence that rations arc is sued to the poor whito people ? Supplies at the rate of a hundred and forty four thousaud dollars per annnm arc distribu ted among the blacks, while the people of Illinois are selling corn at eight cents per bushel to pay the taxes thus imposed up on them. Thoy wcro employing negro teamsters and issuing supplies to negroes, paying in this district for them alone more ' than would support the State Government ' of Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Vermont, Connecticut, Maine, Rhodu Island, New , Hampshire or New Jersey.
