For the " Journal."
The Book of Chronicles of the Hu-
Jere of Uncle Samuel.
1. And it came to pm that in the latter days
there arose 3 mighty and grout nation in the
West, towards the going down of the Sun ; the
rulers thereof were chosen by . "the people," and
they ruled the nation, for a tune, in simplicity
and uprightness. It was a lurge and fruitful
land ; a land of bills and valleys, of hogs and
hominy, of corn and cotton, of steamboats and
strong minded women, where hoops and hum
bugs expanded, and where horses and horned
cattle abounded. And it was called the land
of Uncle Samuel.
3. The mountains yielded iron tn abundance,
and much poid was found in California. Ind
the people increased in numbers, and multi.
plied exceedingly, and spreading themselves
southward and westward many crossed the "fa.
tiler of waters" and dwelt in the plains that lie
westward as thou goost toward the Rocky Moun
tains. And the southern part they called Kan
sas, and the northern part Nebraska.
3. Nuw there were among the people of Uo•
cle Samuel, many of the dsscendants of 11am,
whose fathers had been carried away captive
from Ethiopia, and brought hither and sold in•
to Porpettted bo.idsge by Dutch traders, before
the war of the Revolution. And there was
much dissention among the people for a long
time concerning them ; for some said the Ethi
opinns shall be servants unto on forever ; their
sons shall be for man servants—for hoers of corn
recd tobacco, and cultivators of rice and cotton,
and their daughters shall be for maid servants,
for cooks and for concubines, because for this
end alone they were created ; and thus shall
they be c. vilized and christianized, and elevat
ed above their fathers is Africa. The others
said nay, hot all men shall be free.
4. Arid the dispute continued for many pears
concerning the descendants of Ham, and the
people were divided upon the question, and one
part were called fire eaters,
and the others were
called abolition i sts. And behold 1 when the
Princes of the people assembled yearly at the
great city of Washington, to consider the af
fairs of the nation, that the contention waxed
fiercer and fiercer, so that nothing could be in
any wise considered except in reference to its
bearing on the subject of the bondage of the
children of Ham ttbr the politicians could tee
a nigger's head In every question that arose.
1. Then mono among the Princes Of the pem
Pip, one Stephen. culled the"Ciantrwho spoke
to the ears of the Pt ;ores and of the people, and
said: It is not wise, nor prudent, nor profitable
for us to contend about this matter, in the Conn•
eils of the Nation. Let us make an edict and
establish a decree, and have it Signed with the
signature of Franklin the Chief Ruler, that
when any of the people of Uncle Sam shell
.go out from among their brethren and establish
a territory, that they shall decide among them.
selves whether they . shall heve boodmen among
them; and if a mnjority of the' people shell no
desire it, these children of Ham shall be fur
menservants and maid servants, for cooks nod
for cooeubinee. But if Iho majority are against
it there shall be na bond servants in the terri•
tory, enceept for cr i me.
. . _
1. And . the thing pleased the Princes ard the
people, and they hearkened to Stephen's words.
11, Then Stephen wrote an edict, and the
Cecil made it a law, and Franklin the Chief
Ruler sighed. it ; end it was called the "Kan.
.1. Now the servants of Franklin had permit
ted those who hald bond servants, to oppress
those of their brethren who would not keep
slaves in ICatistss, fur the fire-eaters said : Nu
Frau State man shall dwell in the Territory.
5. And the officers of Franklin persecuted
them, and his soldiers oppressed them, and the
fire-eaters burned their houses, and stole their
cattle, and destroyed their property, and drove
many of them from their homes ; and Frank•
lin "eared fur none of these things."
G. And it came to pass that She time drew
near in which Franklin mitst resign the sceptre
of authority, and return to the oboes. ity front
whence he came ; and the fire-eaters and diss•
itiontsts were sorely grieved, for he had bean a
supple tool in their hands, all the days of his
reign. And Um followers of Franklin assem
bled themselves together in the Porkopolis of
the nation, to choose a Ruler in his stead, and
chose James, the "favorite son of Penn." to be
their leader. and they plated hint upon the Ciu•
Ginned i Platform.
7. Now James had been afuretime a Feder•
alist, and had not .bee drop ot Democratic blind
in his veins." Nevertheless be had by Isis loud
professions of love for the people, completely
deceived them ; and he became Chief Ruler.
8. And Franklin died (politically) and wan
gathered to New Hampshire, and King damns
reigned in hid stead.
