From the Louisville Journal.
The spoilsmen came down like the wolf bri the fold,
And their train-bands were rev'ling on ill-gotten
And Benton's hoarse howl on the gale did resound
Like the deep deadly yell of ihe blood scenting
Like leaves of the forest wherisumriieris green.
In the year 'tliirty -nine' their bought banners were
Like leaves of the forest when autumn hath blown,
In March " forty-one" they lay withered and
For freedom's proud bird spread his wings on the
Aud the breath of his wrath laid them low as he
And the eyes of the Yanites grew deadlv and
And Sub-Treasurers legs forever grew still,
And there lay sad Amos distorted and pale,
With a curse on his lip and a gripe on the mail,
And there lay Calhoun with his nostrils all wide,
And the " galvanized corps" lay stark by his side.
rVnd there lay poor " Pickin" arid Duncan hard by
With the Globe in his hand and a drop in his eye
And the kitchen was silent; Ihe cabinet flown,
The cravat of the humbugger hung there alone.
And the wail of the Scullions is loud in thtiir wo,
The " footstep" is vanished, the " follower" laid
And the popular might hatli the spoiler expunged,
The might of tho freemen hath freemen avenned.

A laughable incident occurred in
this county some time since, the cir
cumstances of which we give just as
we got them from one who professed
to be acquainted with the transac
tion. An old gentleman farmer who
had two or three very pretty daugh
ters, was so very cautions of his
charge that he would not permit
them to Iteep company with the
young men ; however, they adopted
the following expedient to enjoy the
company of their lovers, without the
knowledge of their father. After
the old man had retired to rest, the
girls would hang a sheet out of the
window, which was quite a distance
from the ground, and the beau would
seize hold of the sheet, and with the
assistance of his lady-love, who tug
ged lustily at the sheet above, would
thus gain an entance ; but it so hap
pened that one evening the girls hung
out the sheet rather too early for
the old gentleman, by some ill-wind
was blown around the corner, and
spying the sheet could not conjecture
the meaning of its being there so
he took hold and endeavored to pull
it down; the girls above, supposing
it to be one of their beaux, began to
hoist, and did not discover their mis
take until the head of the old man
was level with the window sill, when
one of them exclaimed "Oh! Lord!
it's Dad! and, letting go their
hold of the sheet, souse came the
old man on the hard ground and
stories below, dislocating one of his
shoulders, which convinced him that
his efforts to make old maids, out of
his daughters was a matter not so
easily accomplished, and withdraw
ing all further opposition to their
keeping company, he was soon a
