Fashionable Street Sweeping.
"When lovely woman at to folly,"
.• And trails her thro' the street
A full half yard—lis melancholy,
To any the very least of It.
Pray who could guess that so much beauty,
Would condescend to clean'the pare
With silk and muslin !---yet a duty
Fashion demandeth of her slave.
And on they trip in gOssiping dozens, •
Reckless of how they gather well
The debris of the public highway—
Nameless if decency would tell;
And Oler boot with faultless fitting
Must hide its charms from every eye, •
Because, forsooth, some brainless beauty
Bath trailed her richvgbes proudly by.
See yonder, down the drizzly sidewalk
That awkward chap-zsome thoughtless
Unknowing how to pass the damsel
Has rent a couple breadths or more,
How could he tell, poor harmless fellow,
Just where to put his toot•solN down,
With dainty drapery Idly floating—
Floating in fact o'er half the town
And s'ee the look the angel gave him
As on she swept the dusty earth,
While lie—seared victim—stands and shivers,
For,?tis,as much as life is worth
To stem the fury of a tvolitan ' j
Even in fashionable guise;
Better a whole brigade of foemen,
Than lightning from her blazing eyes.
"When lovely woman stoops to folty," -
And drags through mud her rich attire,
Sweeping abominable crossings,
Rather than lift her drapery higher_;
Each mother's son may stare and wonder;
And smile iu scorn, but nothing more,
Unless to sigh for by-gone beauty
Of snow-white ankles as of yore.
GETTING INTO A FIN.
Some iiturtein years ago wanted to mar
ry. I. did not care for a bit of pink and white
first as most fools do. I would rather have
kissed my rifle than any bride under the sun ;
but I wanted to marry. I was going out to
New Zealand, and wished to take with me
one who would look after .my house, who
would cook ow meals and talk to a fellow
when smoking his pipe at night, and mend
his logs when torn. Now, I am as bad a
hand as the late Bishop df New Zealand him
self in patching my breaks, but formerly was
not. Well, I saw dearly that no one could
do this for me but a wile, so I determined to
marry. I said nothing to any one about the
matter—first, beedfise I knew that I - should
get so roasted on the bare possibility of being
in love, that my life would be made misera
ble ; secondly, because my time was short,
and I was determined to make cd& work,
and choose fof , myself, instead of letting
others make a forkof the thing for use. On
turning the matter over in my miud,The only
two ladies I could think of who would suit
my hook, were Fanny Fitzpatrick, a jolly
young woman, whose father-was a kind of
Irish Sqdire, and Margaret Leslie, the fast
daughter - of a fast Devonshire parson. The
question was, which should I propose to first.
'Margaret had the best seat on horseback,and
would make the best settler's wife as far as
outdoor life, horse catching, and horsebreak
101r, dm., were concerned ; hut then, sonic
how, Fanny seemed to have more 'go' inlicr.
She stuck at nothing, outdoors, up stairs
own stairs, with friends; with strangers;
she was able to do everything, simply, I be
lieve, because she had pluck to go at every
Time was getting on, however, and I could
net Make up my mind which would suit me
best, Fanny or Margaret. At last I was
obliged to decide, but not easily ; so I tossed*
up a shilling—heads Margaret ; tails, Fanny.
The bob came &own tails, so it was a case
pith Fanny. What I wrote to her, exactly,
I birget ; dint it was to the point—namely
Thatl had so much money ; was going to
New Zealand ; wanted a wife, and would
take'her if she would have me. I added,
that to save her the bother of writing a re
fusal, I should conclude, if I did not hear in
a fortnight, that she did not mean to accept
my offer. Well, day atter day passed, and I
beard outhing. I suppose most persons
would think I was on the tender hooks of
'expectation, and all that kind 01 bosh—not a
bit of it. I did not care much. If Fanny
did not rise et my fly, I would ellirow for
Margaret ; and if ['could. not hook and land
either, why, after all, I could, I supposed,
get an old cook: at Auckland. who would,
for n time, do for me. ,
At last the fourteen days elapsed, t l waited
one day mote to make sure. No - lanswer.
So it was clear Fanny would not have me.
Well, thenl proceeded to try and lasso the
other, filly. I thought of applying to the
parson to write the other letter for me to
Margaret, because all that kind of thing and
gammon was in his line. Butthen I thought
that either 3targaret'would smell a rat, or,
perhaps , the parson, who wet Tied,
would pot her for himself. So my

like a dun; the other was fix um,
full of what some people would tiog
sentimentally. She accepted me. • I wet
length her own darling; could I have ever
been so silly as to doubt it? Papa and mails
ma were delighted, and she was distracted
with happiness or some such thought, at be
ing aV to sign herself my dear 31aigaret.
So that job was settled. I wait to marry
Margaret. Correspondence was never much
in my line. In two intinths I was to Ail, so
I made up my mind to get at once down to
Devonshire, and settle everything rift race!
I rang the bell for my servant, ordered my
portmanteau to be rot ready, and prepara
tions made for my journey, I then carelessly
broke the seal of my second letter. It had
been misdirected, had travelled half over
England, and was covered with very many
postmarks. It was dated Bath, and began
"My dear Dick." I looked at the envelope
closely ; instead of Glover, Moore & Co., to
whom I knew I owed a bill, found printed
on the seal, "I love you more -and more,"
with a heart, or something, in the middle.
am not much of a coward, but IL bursted into
ni cold perspiration as I read something to
this effect—"My dear Dick—We left home
before the arrival of your dear letter, which
I shall forever keep. and have been traveling
incessantly, sn that it Ayes not till last night
that I received your offer. I,at once,,relerred
the matter to my dear papa, gained his con
sent ; and now let me tell you that you have
made me the happiest of Women. Ido not
believe that any girl in Ireland can he hap
pier than I am." And then went on talking
about the oak and the ivy united in a foreign
land. and bras ing together the storms of ad
versity; said she would cling to me. forever,
and winding tip with "always my dearest
darling Dick, your most fondly affectibnate
Fanny." Now this was pleasant, I was en
gaged to two women 'at once.
It will readily be perceived that I was in a
fix, and how to get out of it was the question.
1 could not see my way to do it creditably,
but I determined that I would not be a black
guard. Marro two , women I could not.
Prefer one of the Innocent little dears to.
the other I etinid not. I wished both of the
affectionate lovltig lambkins at Jericho, but
could not choose one before the other, nor
could I bear'the idea of tossing up, now that
I had hooked them both—or rather,l should
say, they had hooked me. Then,again, ugly
ideas of irate fathers, gunpowder, and horse
whipping big brothers loomed in the dis
tance. What Oh earth could be done? At
one time I thought of sailing off to New
Zealand premathrely ; and then I remem
bered all at home, the tarnish to the family
name - and the anathemas that would he
launched at me across the waters by those I
loved. Well, I made up my mind to go
through it all, to see every one, and explain
the matter hilly. Surely,' thought I, they
must see it was a mistake, rind will make al
lowance for me. What allowance they
made you shall hear.
About three o'clock the next morning I
knocked at a certain rectory, not many miles
from Exeter, the residence of Rev. Henry
Mortlake Leslie. • The footman answered
the door, and on inquiring if his master was
at home, showed me into the dining--room,
which was empty. The wretch knew me
well enough—probably knew what he was
up to, and was acting under Orders.
Inn few minutes MissMargareteame niwith
a sheepish smile, and, having shaken hands,
began in her demure way to show signs that
sho expected something more—expected me
to kiss her; or paw her, or do something of
that kind; called me dearest Dick; cooed
about her happiness; .evidently wanted but
the faintest sign to fall on my neck and
kiss me. I backed round the room, she -fol
lowed, I with my hands behind. me. How
ever, this would never d - o.- -At last I brought
up suddenly on the rug. She_ subsided into
a kind of hang-dog position, head down, fore
paws trembling,. 4
"Ahem, Miss bare said I.
"Miss Leslie, Dick, dear tHek what do
von mean P" '
"Why ,you see, Miss Leslie, the t ic%
"Miss Leslie, Dick, the fact. Whv,
I then burst into an explanation. What
I said, I know not, the next thing I recollect
was that she lay on the rug shrieking. I
rang the bell hard twice; In rushed the ser.
Tants, papa and mamma.
"Oh ! the, wretch," howled Margaret, "he.
hats married another!" Then she fainted
again. Water dashed into her face made
her to shriek once more: "Papa, mamma;
he Is going to bring his wife here; he has
got her in the halL Olt-o-o!"
Things were at a pretty pass. "Perhaps,"
said I to the father, "von will let me see
you in another room, and I will give an ex

We entered the study. Ile beard me

"Allow me to explain, sir," I said.
"You rascal; you have tried to explain
You - dog, you traducer of my poor daughter's
innocence !" What on earth he meant ex
actly, I do not know, nor probably did he in
his rage. "You come' here to steal my
daughter's affections; I would horse-whip
you were It not for my cloth. You dared
not have thus ontraxed my feelings If I had
not been a clergyman. Be off, sir, or I shall
soon forget myself and swear. Be off, I say,
or .Tames shall kick you out!" Ile rang the
bell for the footman. "James, kick this ras
eat out!" James hesitated.
"Allow me to explain, sir," said I.
"James, kick him, kick him to the front
door and down the drive."
I was getting angry. James looked at
both of us. He did not know what to do.
"Allow me, sir, to explain again. Don't

"James, kick him. I will double your wa

that was the last I heard us I bolted out of
the room of my, exasperated father-in-law
that was to be, and from his footman's too.
The parson said I all but made him swear.
The fact was he had used very nnelerical
language. What - is meant by swearing I
hardly • know, but his language had been
much worse than I have repeated or proba
bly than he had imagined. I hanged the hall
door after me. and was soon on my road back
to town. Well, thought I, if this is the fuss
the clergical makes about a mistake, what on
earth will the Irish Squire says I was half
inclined on second thought, to Marry Fanny
Fitzgerald, but then it struck me, that if such
a course was not right before I had seen Mr.
Leslie, it could not be right now, and besides,
my worst enemy could never say that fear
drove me to take any step I disapproved of.
powever, thought I, the next affair shall Ile
differently managed; and I will see papa
first. He will IF:nen - to reason lf he hasn't
got any daughter howling in the next room.
In three or four days I was at a country
town in Ireland, awaiting the amval of my
No. 2 father-in-law that was to be, to whom
I had dispatched a note. When he came in
he embraced Inc and called me his broth of
a boy, &c. I found out alert% ards that he
Was in debt, and Wanted through his daugh

time I sobered him, and then we got to

I fun not a good, hand at Irish, so I will

whilc'he was howling with rage, had all but

the landlord entered; people leparated us
and lie was taken away, declaring that I

two his friend came : who he was I neither

At day break we Ni ere paraded at twelve

how and serape, and gave me a note:—"From
the young lady, sir." Thoughtlessly I tore
it open, read it, although it hem, "My dear

it was not directed to me.
When Mr. Fitzgerald and I stood opposite
each other, he tired, and the ball seemed to
go near me. I fired. in the air. I thought
he would he satisfied; but I knew little of
the Irish duel. Our seconds decided„that
under the eircumstances there must he at

The note was from his daughter Fanny,
my affianced bride, was dated prior to my first
interview with her father, and was addressed
to some Irish pauper, who, pretending to be
rich, had won her so-called affections. It
was, moreover, to the effect that she agreed
to her darling Fred's •proposal, and would
meet him nt his post chaise at 4:40 a. m., at a

father fired his second shot, through my hat.

the subject, and call it one of her crowning
charms. How often" the spell of beauty is
rudely broken by coarse, loud talking. How
often you are irresistibly drawn to a plain,
unassuming woman, whose soft silvery tones
render her positively attractive. In the so

man talk in that low key which always char
acterizes the true lady. In the anettruy of
home how such a voice soothes the- fretful
child, and cheers the weary husband.

GOV. SEYMOUR ON THE STUMP.
llia Speech at Buffalo, Thursday Eve•
Fellow Citizens:—Tice first-words uttered
by the republican convention, in their reso
lutions, congratulated the country upon the
success of their scheme of_ reconstruction.
The last words uttered by their speakers and
their presses•declare that reconstruction is a
failure; that the south is still in a condition
of rebellion; that its social disorders de
mand the presence of great armies, and that
the first duty of Congress when It meets wilt
be to turn reconstructed Georgia out of the
Union again. [Applause.]
At the outset of this canvass the republican
party asked to be continued in power upin
the' round that it had governed the country
for the past 'font years wisely and well, and
they demanded a popular apprtiVal of their
policy. After a full discussion of three
months, touching the wisdom, the integrity
of the policy of the government with regard
to reconstruction, and finances, it is found
that order has not been restored at the south;
that the burdens of debt have not beeu light
ened, or the evils oroppressive taxation lift
ed off from the_ labor and industry of the
country, as they should have been. Drive
from their first ground, and feeling that the
people of this country were unwilling to ap
prove their nets, they now try to bold power
by making the people believe, not that they
have done well, but that the democratic par
ty would do worse, if they surceetlett at this
To prove this, they aver that the success
of the Democratic ticket will involve the
country again in civil war. They feel that
nothing short of civil war would he worse.
They have declared that the democratic
nominees are ready to overturn their legis
lation by force. To make the charge still
more dramatic, I am to be sent to my final
account by the hands of my political sup
porters, and that Gen. Blair is then to tram
ple beneath his feet the reconstruction laws
as ruthlessly as Gen. Meade no* stamps
them out by his military orders, with the
concurrence of this - same republican party.
If -I am to go to my final account, I trust I
shall be judged in another world by a kinder
and more charitable tribunal than my repub
lican friends have proved to be. If the dem
ocratic ticket is elected, and Gen. Blair
should reach the presidential. chair, how
would the case stand? lie would be con- -
fronted by a republican senate—by a house '
of representatives full of generals—by the ar

leaguers and the grand armies of the repub

date for the presidency, whom • they declare
to be the first captain of the age. And yet we
are , gravely told that, standing alone, shack
led by congressional restraints, he can crush -
out all this opposing power, and plunge the
country into civil Ivor. If tins is true, then
Gen. Blair is either the most vi gorous man who
has lived in the hi-tory of the Word, or re
publican senators, members of congress, and
commanders of armies are the most imbecile
men who ever disgraced public positions.
[Cheers.] N0w,,1 admit there is a fear in the
minds of the Republican leaders 'but it is not
this absurd fear. It is the dread that the
public mind having bee-u turned to its finsn
cial and political policy. is le aching conclu
sions 'which N eep them from political
power. Thvrefore, they seek to change the
issues—therefore, they have changed -their
front in this contest. We are admonidted
that it is a daneerons thing In change front
on the eve of battle.
I propose in the.courss of the canvass, on
occasions like this, to discuss the conduct and
policy of the men in power. To-night, I
must confine myself to a few points—else
where I shall speak of other wrongs and
errors. When this war ended, nearly four
years ago, it left the Southern States disor
ganized and impoverished. The duty of re
storing peace anal perpetuity to that section
and putting it into condition where it could
add to the national prosperity and aid to beats
its burthens, fell upon the Republican party.
The difficulties of the task wet e increased by
the fact that its population was made up of
two distinct races, one of Mitch had been
held in slavery, and was now suddenly called
upon, untutored as they were, to act a new
part in our social and political system. Ido
not wish to underrate the difficulties with
which they had to contend. But the magni
tude of these difficulties demanded that they
should enter upoe s the task in a wise, great
and thoughtful %Mel" Armies alone cannot
bring back prosperity or a due sense of the
value of order to a' community. They can
only restrain violence. The healing mess
urea of the statesman must work the cures.
The two great objects to be kept in view,
were to give all classes that prosperity which
tends to make men desirepeace,which gives
them hopes, and in she end a stake in the
good order of society. Despair ever makes
disorder. Another great object and end was
to lift up.the African as far and as fast- its
could be wisely done. Humanity dictated
this. The interests of the white population
of the South demanded it. As the two races
were to live upon the same soil, their com
mon interest called for harmony of purposes
and of feelings.
Under This state of facts, wise men would
seek the aid of the most intelligent and influ
ential men of that section of the country,
taking care to gnarl against any influences
springing from their prejudices. Have these -
obvious truths been regarded by these men In
power? Has not reconstruction failed be
cause they disregarded them ? The first step
towards restoring order and producing har
mony between the races was in all ways to
minister to the prosperity of that section—
which prosperity would be shared alike by
the white man and the negro. The industry
of the South should be made profitable. ' Un
less the employer made a profit upon his cot
ton crop, he could not pay the laborer. Fall
ing to do this, the disaster brought not only
poverty, but confusion and discontent. True
statesmanship, then, would have stretched
out a helping hand. But what was the first
' act of the men in power? It was to put a
monstrous export tax of six cents a pound
upon the cotton raised by the labor of the ne
gro upon the plantation of the White. Strug
gling With the evils of poverty, with thediffi
culties of their new positions and relation
ships, the first feeble efforts of their people to
gain the means of livelihood were blasted by
an unwise, selfish and vindictive act. I say
unwise, because ft has had much to do with
the failure of the Republicans to restore or s ,
der at the South. The negro,exasperated
the failure of his ruined employer, becaine
hostile to him. The employer, losing the
little credit that he had before in the north,
renewed his efforts tinder still 'greater diffi
culties than before. I say it was a selfish act,
because it was done - In the interest of the
eastern manufacturer, already wealthy from
the fruits of the war. Protected by enormous
tariffs, this tax of six cents a pound upon all
cotton exported Was simply imposed, so that
he might buy it for a price six cents less than
it was worth in the markets of the world.
I say it was a vindictive act, for if you will
read the debates in Congress, when this tax
was • levied to cover the selfish interest that
prompted it, you will find that it was urged
upon the members from the western States,
who voted against the interest of their. eon
-sawn% upon the ground that It was to be
Imposed upon the South, as a penalty, And
thus we find that the black and the white
man of the South were alike stripped of the
nutrket Vane of their staple pmlftet,_under
circumstances • of such great difficulty ; and
that they were hindered and not helped in
the road to prOsperity by the men in. power
I might go on and show,in addition to this
wrong, how they were trampled upon by mill
Ong despotisms — how they were placed under
the unrestrained power of vagrant men, who
gained wealth and official posltfuna by minis
tering to the passions of .tho public and by
