IEWISBURC, UNION CO., PA., FRIDAY,
The Lion and the Skunk... A Dream.
I met a lion in my path,
(Twas on a dreary autumn night,)
Who gave me the alternative
To either run or liht.
I dare not turn upon the track,
1 dare not think to run away.
For fear the lion at my back
Would seize tne as his prey.
So, summoning a fearless air,
'I'licitif h all my soul was full of fricht.
I aaid unto the forest king,
"I will not run, but tight."
We fought, and. as the fates decreed,
I conquered in the bloody fray;
For snon the lion at my feet
A lifeless carcass lay.
A little skunk was standing by.
And nuted what the lion spi'kc j
And when he saw the lion die,
The lion's tracks he took.
He used the lion's very speech.
For, stretching lo his utmost height.
He gave me the alternative t
To either run or tight.
I saw he was prepared lo fling
Fresh odors fruni his bushy tail,
And knew those odors vcTy soon
My nostrils would assail.
So, summoning a humble air,
Though all my soul was tree from fright,
I snid unto the dirty skunk
I'll run, but will not fight.
As years bcin to cool my blood,
I rather all would doubt my spunk.
Than lor a moment undertake
To li'ht a human skunk.

Freemen of Kansas! behold tho BRIBE
for which you are expected to strike down
tbat Liberty iu whose defence you bave so
long and so gallantly fought. And yet it
is a paltry, meagre, miserable bribc,wbich
proposes to buy us for just Efty-two thou
sand four hundred and eighty acres of land,
exclusive of worthless salt spring appro
priations. Tbc school sections we are en
titled to by the Organic Act, independent
of this bill. The bribe is in itself a swin
dle and a cheat. It is an iusult to our in
telligence, and a foul aspersion of our
honor. The thirty pieces of silver which
are offered to us to betray tbc highest and
holiest of causes, are bo-jus pieces. Wc
will spurn and spit upon this bribe. We
will say to James Buchanan, "Thy money
perish with thee !"
Why this unjust and invidious discrim
ination in favor of Slavery ? If wc arc
justly entitled to oiue into tho Union as
a Slave State, now, why not as a ,,
State? Why must wo b kept under let
cral satraps., and under such ruffian Judges .
as Cato and Lccomptc, for several years to
come? Why must Kansas, clad in the
virgin robes of Freedom, be spurned and
driven from the doors of Congress, when,
if she will prostitute herself and come
arrayed in the harlot attire of Slavcry,shc
shall find a ready and joyou welcome ?
Arc the people of Kansas prepared to see
Liberty thus insulted, and Slavery thus
honored ? Are tho people of the country
at large ready to see it ?
Shall wc, who for years bave occupied
the most sublimo moral position of any
