The President brisked up, and from

may say, to use a. medikle term, that he
had a hemorrhage of words. At the

yelled Grant, until, overpowered by the

But the " Moses of the negroes' de

"Esan and His Mess of Pottage."
Almost every town of note through
out the entire Union is being furnished
with au apt illustration of the career of
the scriptural'Esau, who bartered away
his birthright for a mess of pottage.—
Postmasters - . tax , Collectors and Asses
sors are fast being beheaded to. give
place to the weak-minded, mercenary
seekers of governmental patronage, who
purchase their temporary gain by abju
ring the doctrine:sof freedom and truth,
which they have hitherto professed to
hold sacred,- and pledging themselves )
heart and Soul, to the treacherous doc
trines of the faithless Andrew.
The position in which some of these
modern Esaus are placed, is truly ridi
culous; heartily despised by thcirform
er political and social friends, and,their
consciences tortured by an occasional
.reviving spark of manhood, their only
consolation is in the contemplation of
the scanty and fleeting " mess of pot
tage" for which they sold themselves,
and which must soon pass into the hands
of more trustworthy men. Here is an
instance in the experience of one of
these pitiable outcasts. Andrew's guil
lotine had reached Lancaster city, and
off went the head of the worthy Post
master. For a time the office went beg
ging; but a search warrant process was
instituted, and a successor was found, in
the person of a respectable old citizen,
who yielded to the seductive influence
of anticipated gain.
Now it happened that the same eve
ning in which these arrangements were
completed, there was a Republican mass
meeting in the city, and the worthy cit
izen's wife, true to the supposed princi
ples of her liege lord, illuminated her
dwelling from garret to cellar.
The Johnsonians saw it, and on the
morrow the poor old citizen was inter
rogated as to its meaning. He replied
that he was busy iu the back part of the
house, and knew nothing of the matter
until too late to prevent it. Days passed
on, the old gentleman grew exceedingly
nervous and irritable, and finally, in a
tit of despair.caused by the stiugings of
a guilty couseienee, he , ought the be
headed Postihaster, who had not yet
ceased his official duties, and said : "For
God's sake, take this thing hack, it is

Thus it is. There may occasionally

e-teem of their fellow citizens,
