THE OLD CORN .UILL.
Dehome of my childhood, dat dearly loved epot,
Wunr de yller corn am growing round my fader's
Dar many hap pydaysl spent, I yet remember well,
Wid my kind old mudder down by de old Corn Mill.
Den hnrry me home tode old Corn Mill.
To my fader's old cot on de top oh de hill.
For I am getting weary and rot afraid to die,
Oh lay me side my mudder, iu d ground whar
Full well I remember, how wish boyish delight.
We met roan de pine-knot at de night,
I lnb to ee de ole corn mill, and watch de wheel go
I lnb my good old mudder in de cold cold gronnd.
Den hurry me home, Ac.
Oh for dat old corn-mill to memory doar,
I would eat do bright corn cake with merry good
But de old corn mill am passing away.
And de crazy old wheel am gone to decay.
Den hurry me home, Ac.
And Katy I loved, her grave am so cold,
De old folks am dead an do young ones am sold,
Dem happy daysarn ober. free from sorrow and til,
When we all lived at home by de old corn mill.
Den hurry me home, Ac.
30E5TICX3 LOOKS TOE A BOARDING HOUSE.
Having become to a certain extent a fixture
in tbia high old town, it became necesary to
eearch out a fit habitation, wherein I might
eat, sleep, change my shirt, (Damphool blush
es,) and attend to the other comforts of the
external home and the inner individual.
My friend Bull Dogge having deserted his
latter place of residence, (on account of the
' perpetual reign of salt mackerel at the break
. fast table,) wc started together on a voyage of
discovery. To describe all the dilapidated
gentlewomen whbse apartments were inspect
ed all the many inducements which were
used to persuade us to take up our quarters in
all sorts of musty smelling rooms, and to re
count how many promises were made to "call
again," would take too much time. Suffice to
Bay, that at six o'clock in the cvening,wearied
out and desperate, we cast anchor in the dom
cil of an Irish lady with one eye. Sheissured
us that her hoarders were all "rispi'ctable and
found their own tibaccy, and that there was
divil a bug in the place." We took adjojping
rooms, and resignedly weut down to tea.
I noticed that my cup had evidently sustain
ed a compound, communited fracture, and
been patched up with putty, (which came off
In my tea,) that the bread was scant the but
ter powerful the tea, "on the contrary, quite
the reverse," however, although matters
looked somewhat discouraging -hoping
ngaints hope," I retired to my virtuous
sheets : horror of horrors ! O, most horrible ! !
For two hours I maintained a sanguinary
combat with an oderiferous hand cannibal in
sectsarmed only with a fire-shovel, I gallant
ly kept unequal conflict but the treacherous
implement broke at tue critical moment; 1
thought I should be compelled to yield de
spair filled my senses my heart tailed me
my brain grew dizzy with horror hurried
thoughts of enemies unpardoned of duties
neglected and of some errors committed,
rushed across my mind last thought of cher
ished home and absent friend was in my
. heart, and with a hasty prayer for mercy and
forgiveness, I was at the point of yielding,
when my frantic eyes caught sight of my cast
iron boot jack with an exclamation of pious
gratiimle to heaven, (Ba!i JV;ge sas it .lid
iit iouad to iiiJU,) I seized it. and with the
desperate strength of a dying mau I renewed
the battle, and eventually came of victorious
nvA tr:un;j 'Yeary with slaughter, I fell
exhausted on the bed and slept tiil morning;
Bull Dogge, who had been engaged in the same
delightful occupation, Appeared at the break
fast table with one eye black, and his lace
spotted like a tiger. VTe held a council of
war, resolved instantly to quit the premises of
the Emerald IsLiuderwho had agreed to lodge
ar.de.it ns, (the she-Cyclops!) and who had
so nearly fulfilled the latter clause by proxy.
Another search and another home. litre for
a wee.i things went on tolerably well; the steak
vas capable of mastication, the coflee wasn't
.always weak, nor the butter always strong; but
-one day there appeared at breakfast a dish of
beef, (Bull Bogge asserts that was the fossil
remains of an omnibus horse) it was not mo
lested; at dinper it made its appearanne again,
still it was net disturbed; at tea fragments of
it were visibL:,but yet it remained untouched;
in the morning a tempting looking stew made
its appearance, but, alas! it was only a weak
invention of the enemy to conceal the ubiqui
tious beef; at dinner a meat pie enshrined a
portion of the aforesaid beef; it went away un
harmed. For a week, every day, at every meal,
in every subtle form, in some ingenious dis
guise, still was forced upon our notice this
omnipresent beef; it weut through more chang
es than Harlequine in the pantominc, and like
that individual, came out always uninjured.
At the end of the second day Bull Dogge
grumbled to himself; the third he spoke "out
ia meeting;" the fourth he d mned audibly ;
the fifth he had an hour's swear to himself, in
his own room ; the sixth, seventh and eighth
he-preserved a dignified , silence; but his si
lence was omnious on the ninth we both left.
Our next landlady had a gigantic mouth, but
her nose was a magnificent failure. We staid
with her a week, and left because she seemed
to be possessed of an idea that one sausage
was enough for two men. For a month longer
we run the guantlet of all the model boarding
. houses. We were entrapped by all kinds of
alluring promises, and perpetually swindled
without any regard to decency; we had a taste
of Yankee, French, Dutch, and I mentioned
it before, (j Gods!) Irish; and we lived four
days in an establishment presided over by a
red-eyed darkey, with a wife the color of a
new saddle. At last one day, in an agony of
despair, I exclaimed, "Where, O, where can
humbugged humanity find a decent place to
feed!" Echo answered, "In the eating hous-'
es." We resolved to try it, and the result is
glorious. We have achieved a victory, an he
roic. uuexpcfd victory. And now farewell,
all scrawling landladies, ye snuffy beldames, 1
with your wooden smiles; farewell yon rivapa- J
rous bedsteads, ye emaciated feather beds,and
ye attenuated bolsters; a long adieu to scant
blankets and mattresses stuffed with shavings;
farewell to hiresute butter, and to ancient
bread; good-bye, (I say it with a: tear,) ye im
mortal, everlasting beef; farewell to sloppy cof
fee, and to azure mik,(Damphool says not yet;)
farewell ye antidiluvian pies, and yon, Lilipu
tian puddings; farewell you two-inch napkins,
and ye holy table cloths; farewell ye empty
grates and rusty coal scuttles; adieu ye crack
ed mirrors, which make a man look like a
drunken Satyr;" farewell ye respectable chairs
with dislocated limbs; adieu ye fractured tea
cups, ye broken forks, and knives with hand
saw edges; farewell, in fact, all ye lodging
houses, where ye can't have a latch key, and
where you can tell whec they get a new hired
girl by the color of the hair in the biscuit. (1
noticed this last remarkable fact a long time
since.) Give us joy, for we have found a place
where things are done up right, where we can
choose our own viands, where the beef is pos
itively tender, where there are no little red
ants in th sugar, where the potatoes are not
waxy, and where, if anything goes wrong, we
can inflate the water. In fact we are suited;
if anything runs short, "John gets particular
fifs," and "nothing shorter;" where we can eat
u-hen we please, and call for what we please;
where charges are moderate, and permittejl to
d mn the waiter for. nothing, and here in this
Elysiau spot, have Bull Dogge and I taken our
daily bread, (beans and butter included,) foi
the past month, "without fear and without re
proach." As a poetical friend has remarked,
'Joy, joy, our task is done,
Our trials are past, and our Restaurant is some."
