Can't Do Without a Paper. :
What ! do without a paper ?; No,
' I've tried it to my sorrow ;
, So, to subscribe for one I'll co,
: tor wait until to-morrow.
. Should lovers drown or Ii'ang themselves,
Or other foolish carftr, "
I never get to hear of it,
. I do not take the paper.
Why' there's my neighbor .Totham Stout,' i
lie always hears the news,
And having news to talk about, T "
"lie never gets the blues ; . -While
others yawn iu ennui,
His mind, is liht as vnpor ;
The cause is p'aiii to half an eye,
He always takes the paper.
While neighbor Stout hears all the news,
And knows each current price,
And always minds his P's and Q's,
Uy taking good advice,
I cannot tell the price of calves,
Or poultry, coffee, tape, or
Any kind of merchandise,
because I takcno paper.
Though I have studies which require
. .'Much time and mental labor, ;
Yet I can spare a little tim.,
As well as Stout, my neighbor.
Though time be precious, I can u?a
A longer midnight tape,
And thus take time to rea 1 the news
Therefore 111 take a paper.
Uut now which one shall I select,
So many greet my vision ;
One stubborn fact which I detect
Shall influence my decision :
The neatest paper and the best,
Should be the ono for me ;
And when I brinp; it to the test,
Tho Sentinel I see !
Brick Dust for sore Heads.
- This reminds us of a little story 2 Say,
you radical, nigger-loving Anna Dickin
son, Fred Douglass, 15en Butler style
of Republican?, how do you like Johnson ?
How do you like going out of the Union
for a President ? You men that preached
that God is controlling events political as
well as eternal ? Iloft do you like Ten
nessee statesmanship ? How does it com
pare with flat bout style?
And God said let there be light,, and
there was light ! This is bible.
"And being in torment, they lifted up
their eyes and saw," not Abraham in the
bosom of Lazarus, but Andrew Johnson
in the White House. lVetty picture, isn't
it, j-ou freedom shrieking, press mobbing,
Democrat hanging, cotton stealing, wo
men robbing, blunder loving, prison advo
cating, Democrat abusing, b:illot:box
stuffing, office-holding sepulchres full of
nigger's bones ? i
How do you like the President? How
do you like this going into the Democra
tic party for a horse to hitch up with your
mule? The seed of white men shall
bruise the head of Republicanism, and j
Johnson shall be the next President. ;
Verily, we say unto you now ia the time j
to repent! It is a bad time for you fed- j
lows to swap horses when crossing a i
stream ! Why tVrn't you Republican, j
wench hugging, freedom shrieking, mem- j
hers oT the only treasonable party in the
Union, get drunk and parade with torches?
Stand by the President ! The President '
is' the government, you kno w ! j
Blessed doctrine, thoulBf-Divine, 1
But this President dodge is fine. ' j
lie who speaks against the President is :
a traitor. Jct traitors be hung! Why J
don't you get drunk, burn printing .offices,
murder a few Democrats,, throw a few
printing offices into the street, stop ypur
newspaper, hold prayer meetings. in uuuis
and get drunk as owls, as you did when
the other President spoke? " Who 3 pin
here since Fsh nm srone ?" Who elected
j Johnson? Why in thunder don't 3-ou
get out the .Wide Awakes, burn Demo
crats 'in., effigy, shoot at then as they go
1 around corners, waylay them in .postotu
I ces, shout ." Rah fur Link Johnson, and

" Way down South in tho land of Dixie!"
Ain't that a pretty little-song ! How
do you like this " expediency " dodge 1
Why doa't youcackle when your Presi
dent lays an egg!, Why, don't you cele

Was not your party created on opposi
tion to the South, a:.d docs it not now rest
on that basis 1
The men who were mas'crs cf ceremo
nies in the orcanlzaticn of your nartv j
have for thirty years heca crying aloud j
against the people and irslitu'.ions of the
Your speakers and press have been con
stant in teaching the people of the Norih
to hate those of the South.
In 185G your party carried flags with
sixteen stats, representing the sixteen Nor
thern States, thus disowning the South
ern half of the Union.
In 1859, when John Krown wss exe
cuted for murder, and was guilty of seek
ing to incite a servile insurrection in the
South, your party leaders held meetings to
sympathize for him and to denounce the
You were all wrought upon by news
papers and speaker? until j'ou bore most
bitter hatred toward the Southern people.
When Democrats plead with you to a
landon your doctrines of sectional hatred
and thereby avoid civil war and a dis
mmbred country, you sneering! called
You didu't care much about the Union
then. Your pnrt3r knew the North tj be
strongest, and that by securing control of
it, you obtained power long coveted.
When the feeling between the contend
ing sectionsvas worked up to the necessa
ry height, aud the people of the South'
sought redress in separation, 3-ou had a
majority in Congress which refused all
compromises, and also refused men and
money to President Buchanan to put
down thc insurrection in its incipiency.
After 3'our leaders were fully installed
in power they were ready to engage in a
war, which they pretended was for the
Union. After assailing slavery for twenty-
five 3'ears, they declared thc3' had no in- t
tcntion ot interfering with it.
You encouraged the soldiers to put
down thc rebellion and preserve a union
with the people you had so long and vio
lently denounced, and whose domestic
institutions you had engendered so much
The soldiers overthrew the rebellion
and deslroj-ed slavery. They did all you
asked of them, and vastly more than you
said would be required at their hands.
During thc war, yoii plead loud and
long for the Union. Now when the war
; ,s ended ana llic people o tne r-tontn are
J begging for peace and quiet in the UniQn,
under tho Constitution, why do wa not
have peace and union ?
Why Jo you still cry aloud against thc
people of the South ? n.-
Why do you incite hatred and engender
strife against a people powerless, penni
less and penitent '?
Why did you cn' out for Union during
four years of war, and now when it is en
ded declare the Union is not and shall not
be restored ?
It is because 3'ou want to retain power.
You keep the representatives of the
Southern States out for that purpose.
Power is more importance to your lea
ders than is the union of thc States or the
liberties of the people.
You spent millions of lives and thous
ands of millions of money for the Unicn,
as you said.
Why do 3'Ou refuse to have the Union
It is because 3'our leaders fear thc loss
of power. . .
They have one hand on the throat of
1 the nation and the other in the pockets of
the people, im 1 you Republican ' reader,
are you one of those whoso vote is given
to perpetuate this thing f
If you are dishonest, it is useless for us
to talk to you.
If you are honett, how can you oniinuo
to act with such a party ? . .
Tell r.s not that this is untrue. Divest
yourself of prejudice and 3011 can but
adajit the truth of all that is here written.
You cannot deny that your party was
founded in the hatred of one section
ngainst the other ; that it has b?ci streng
thened as those hatreds have been increas
ed, that tao only nope ot Beeping it up is
in continuing the sectional quarr!, .and
that your success is at ihi coot oi naiion
a! peace and prosperity'.
Reader, if jou are candid, 3-011 will fay
there ia ;more truth than poetry'' in this ;
but it is all true, and if you were well
disposed toward the good order and hap
piness of the country, will hereafter veto
with those who want a union of all tho
States, a:;d who would have good fxding
piev.ul throughout all our borders.

Ho v. to Livf. A wealthy gentleman
of Hostcn, several years ago, gave the ed

it on foot. The example he gave them
afforded him a satisfaction greater than his
wealth had to bestow,
