HOW Idat. LOCICE'TtritasIED To PETROLEUM
Everybody has read the Nasby
ters, but very few people know anything
of their origin or their author. Those
who have the book---lately printed—
containing according to the title page,
"Divers Views, Opinions, and Prophe
cies of yoors, trooly, Petroleum V Nas
by," have undoubtedly made them
selves familiar with the portrait of the
" Lsit Pastor," as drawn by Jones, and
printed therein. This is undoubtedly a
true likeness of Petroleum V., if net of
the gentleman who personates him in
the Nasby letters; and it is quite prob
able that many people would recognize
the former as a real caricature of the
latter. The picture was undoubtedly
intended to have some points of resem
blance to the real author of Nasby, and
with this . Ms many admiring readers
should be satisfied.
The first of the Nasby letters appeared
in April, 1883, but is printed third in
the book. Its title is " Negro Emigra
tion." This letter deprecates the alarm
ing " inkrees" of negro population at
Wiugert's Corners, calls uon the disin
terested patriots of that place to " hold
a mass meetin to take this subject into
considerashun," and proposed "the a
dopshun of a series of preamble and res
olushuns." The second clause of the
proposed preamble has in it the germ of
the entire series of the Nasby letters,
and printed as follows :
" Whereas, In the event of this erni
grashun, our fellow townsman, Abslum
Kit and others, whose families depend
upon their labor for support, would be
throwd out of employment."
" Abslum Kitt' is not a myth, but at
the time this letter was first published,
lived at Findlay, Ohio, his real name
being Flenner_ Flenner was a drunk
en, lazy, good-for-nothing sort of a fel
low, seldom doing any work, and mak
ing himself little less than a charge on
the town. In fact, his father was alrea
dy in the poorhouse, and if Flenner,
Jr., had been there too, he would have
cost the town less trouble and money.—
About this time a petition, emanating
from high Democratic authority, was
circulated in Ohio, asking the Legisla
ture to pass a law preahibiting negro im
migration, and to provide for the remo
val of negroes then residing in that
State. The principal reason offered by
these "disinterested patriots" for the
passage of such a law, was, that the
great influx of negroes from the South,
that would follow the expected emanci
pation, would so reduce the wages of
labor in Ohio, that white laborers could
not live there. A copy- of this petition
was sent tos very respectable Democrat
of Findlay, who, being ashamed to cir
it himself, employed Flenner to
do the job. Mr. D. IL Locke, publisher
at that time of the Findlay Jeffersonian,
was at once struck by its absurdity, es-,
pecially when presented by a man like
Flenner. He therefore borrowed the
petition, intending to print it in the
next issue of his paper and make some
serious comments regarding it. If his
design had been carried out, the Nasby
letters would never have been written
nor published ; but so extremely ridicu
lous did the whole affair appear, that
Mr. Locke, who, is a practical printer,
finally gave up the idea of writing any
thing serious about it, and commenced
putting in type with his own hand the
letter referred to above. This he did
without having written a word of it,
and without any defined plan, except
to make his solecism humorous, and his
humor pointed and pungent. After the
letter was in type, Mr. Locke hesitated
about publishing it, and probably would
not have done so if he could have pre
pared Other matter to fill itsplacebefore
the tine for the issue of his paper. So
the letter was published hi the Jefferso
nian, and in a short time thereafter ap
joared in many leading Republican
urnals throughout the country, giv
ing the writings of Nasby the stamp of
success from the very first. Thus en
couraged, Mr. Locke continued to write
over this signature; and the subsequent
career of Petroleum V. is known to,ev
ery one. Flenner, the indirect author
of the Nasby letter, afterwards enlisted
in the United States service, and died
in the army.—Detroit Post.
Soup or Nothing
At a very excellent hotel, not a hun
dred miles from our parts, they were
one day short of a waiter, when a newly
smiled Hibernian was hastily made to
-supply the place of a more expert hand.
" Now, Bartley," said mine qlost,
"mind you serve every man with soup
the first thing—serve the soup first."
" Bedad, I'll do that same," said the
Soup came on, and Barney, after help

" D—n the rules of the house !" ex

want soup I wont eat it."
" Well," said Barney, with all due
