There were assembled in solemn conclave the
"Know Nothings!" At last I had found them,
and I knew " mine hour had come," that
hour-in which I was to do my country a signal

service, tnat wouia wreaine my orow wnu
never-fading laurels.
At one end of the room, on a glue-keg, sat
the Grand Magniloquent, or presiding officer,
who was supported on either side by two Past
Fiddle-de-gigs, with naked, blood-stained
swords crossed over their heads, and holding
in their hands a "bloody bishop's mitre," sig
nificant I suppose of the decapitation of the
Catholic clergy. Standing in groups about
the room were the members, dressed in a garb,
I am sorry to say, resembling the uniform of
the Chincklecamoose Hangers! Suddenly the
Grand Magniloquent, in a stentorian voice,
called the meeting to order, striking five raps
with a pondorous malet or gavel, like those
commonly used for morticeing locust posts.
When the members were all seated, an officer
announced seven candidates ready for initia
tion, whom he was directed to introduce.
They were brought into the room through a trap
door, blindfolded, and formed into a circle
round the presiding officer, who commenced
to mumble forth some singular incantation
that sounded like the following : "Nnow-nothing-lbcmosorham-rlreoarcne.hmu

The lights were extinguished, and soon the
room was illuminated with a pale, blueish,
sickly flame, and perfumed with an odor very
much like brimstone. The Grand Magnilo

thirteen backwards, when he appeared in the
