“ Care to our coffin adds a nail no doubt,
But every grin of laughter draws one out!”
GEORGIA DEBATING SOCIETY.
At a village debating club, the question
had been argued in the affirmative, when
the opposite side were called upon to open
their batteries. The first speaker in the
negative, rose and made a most masterly
speech, in which he completely demolished
the subtle arguments of his adversaries, and
convinced the entire assemblage of the cor
rectness of his own positions. lie was fol
lowed by an eccentric genius, rather more
famed for his dry humor than his eloquence.
“ Mr. President,” said he, “ this minds
me of a shootin match 1 went to once. It
was a little \vays in the country, but ther
was a great many young gentlemen thar
from town, with ther little brite, silver moun
ted rifles, all titivated off, till they shined like
anew button. These rifles was monstrous
slick affairs, with very small bullets and the
leetlest kind o’ tetch holes. Well, every time
they fired, they went, ‘pew!’ and the bark
flew mightily, but the judges hollered out,
* Nothing d-o-n-e !’ 4 Pew!’ goes/another.
‘Nothing d-o-n-e!’ says the judges. And
thar it was—‘Pew!’ ‘Nothing d-o-n-e!’
fora long time, til bimeby an old hunter from
the country stepped ifp with his old rusty
yauger— ‘ bang-a-lang-lang,’ it went, with a
thunderin rattlin ’bout the board. The
judges run to the stump and looked awhile
4 The bull's eye’s o-u-t!’ says they. Well,
ther want nothin left to shoot at, so the old
yauger tuck the prize. Jest so it is now,
with me. My ftiend here’s knocked the
bull’s-eye out o’ the fine arguments of the
other side, and haint lef: me nothin to speak
at. So I’ll set down, Mr. President.” We
need not odd that the decision was in favor
of die negative.
How to break ill Neu-s. —Mr. G.—Ha,
Jarvis, how are you, my old hoy—how do
things get on at home ?
Steward—Bad enough, your honor. The
Poor Mag ! So he’s gone. How came
he to die ?
Over-ate himself, sir.
Did he, faith ? a greedy dog. Why,
what did he eat that he liked so .w ell ?
Horse flesh, sir. lie died of eating horse
How came he to eat so much horse flesh?
All your father’s horses, sir.
What! are they dead too?
Ay, sir; they died of over-work.
And why were they over-worked, pray ?
To carry vvatei, sir.
To carry water ! atul vvliat were they car
rying water for-?
To put out tho fire, sir.
The fire ! what fire 1
Oh, your father’s house is burned to the
My father’s house burned down ! how
came it on fire ?
I think, sir, it must haveltetyi the torches.
Torches ! what torches ?
At your mother’s funeral.
My mother dead !
Ay, poor lady ; she never looked up after
she heard of it.
Heard of what ?
Your father’s death.
My father gone too ?
Yes, poor gentleman : he took to his bed
as soon as he heard of it.
Heard of what ?
The had news, please your honor.
What! more miseries ? more had news ?
“ Yes, sir, your hank has failed, and your
credit is lost, and you are not worth one
shilling in the world. I made hold, sir, to
come and wait on you, to tell you about it ;
for I thought you would like to hear the
John Neal, the talented writer, and liber
al contributer to the “Portland Tribune,”
says—“A negro wishing to say that if the
sun rises clear and goes into a fog immedi
ately, it is a sign of rain,—did so in the fol
lowing terms : ‘ Ben e son rise berry airly,
and set afore he rise, sartin to have rain
afore soon.’ ” This, he declares, is nothing
to the prayer made by a negro belonging to
the late Gov. Tompkins, who had been
allowed by the Governor, in consideration
of his fidelity and great piety, to have com
pany atthanksgiving. “ The other negroes,”
says he, “ having secured theirplaces at the
table, some holding by the cloth, some by a
chair, and not a few, ‘to make assurance
doubly sure,’ by both—Cato fixed himself
with his legs as far apart as he could stand
without tumbling over, and locking his hands
together, began thus— ‘ O Lord ! pray see
good vitell on e table; more in e pot —good
as any Massa Tomkin’s got —tunner in e
heavens! trashee down dry hemiochee tree!
trashee up afore Massa door ! save cuftee on
de oven wood—under glorious sunshiny
gospel—dis day to one day, world afore lat
ter end, Godsake amen !’ YVe are glad to
be the first to publish this evidence of the
capabilitiesof that poor despised race, which
joking apart, are not halt so stupid, nor a
fiftieth part so mad as many of the whites
who are now undertaking to lead them by
the nose. We know what we say—the
nose. No wonder they find it slippery
work. Catching soaped eels would be no
thing to it.”
Hair-ecy. —De hair is divvided into five
parts :—de red hair, de brack hair, de curly
hair, and todder two parts is no consequence
now. De red hair is for white fokes and
disgust your ‘spected preacher bery mutch.
De black hair is bery good for iniius, but
dey can’t make it curl. Den de curly hair
is ’portant and ’lude ’ticklarly to do poppy
lation ob color. I spose you link you hub
short hair; but when you come to traiten it
out, you find dat you hah long hair niter all.
Mind I tell you. Cut down your hair, nig
grr. —Deacon Snowball.
Reading prayers to the King. —The old
King (Federich William) had a strong sense
of religion, though he expressed it at times
with a vehemence truly comic. Being too
unwell to read the usual prayers himself, his
daily practice, he desired his valet de cliam
bre to read them to him. His attendant,
thinking it disrespectful to thou n king, on
coining to the words “ The Lord bless, you.”
“ It is not so, read it again,” cried the exas
perated king, at the same time throwing
something at the reader’s head. The poor
fellow could not conceive what blunder he
had made, und again read, “ The Lord bless
you.” The king was furious, and having
nothing else at hand, he pulled off his night
cap and flung it in the attendant’s face, cry
ing out, “It is not so, I tell you ; read it
again.” The frighted valet again gasped—
“ The Lord bless you.” “Bless tliee , rogue,”
roared the monarch, losing all patience and
self-control—“ bless thee. Don’t you know,
fellow, that in the sight of God, I am only a
mi serai de rascal like yourself!”— Cu mpbell's
Life of Fcderick the Cl/cut.
Swieillerism. —The reporter of the Auro
ra tells the following story of a quarrelsome
man arid wife : Dick White and his wife
led a deuce of a life; from their always a
fighting, and scratching, and hiring, and
kicking up shindies, and breaking the win
dies; and getting their fill,of hauls off to the
mill. Ami last night Dicky White, and his
lady so bright, got blue, and of course, had
a beautiful fight; for with fists and with feet,
and with broom-sticks so neat, each other
almost into mummies they heat. But ere
they were kilt, or much blood had been
spilt, apprised by the din, a watch-man came
in, and soon to that battle so grim put a stop,
by marching the combattantsoff to the shop.
But this morning Dicky White, and his rib
were all right, for they kissed and made up
in the magistrate’s sight, and vowed that to
gether no longer they’d fight. And there
fore the court gave them orders to trot. So
Dick and his r ib toddled oil'like a shot.
JVhohas the most Money? —A swell clerk
from Pearl street, who was spending an
evening in a country tavern, cast about him
for some amusement. Feeling secure in
the possession of the most money, he made
the following offer:
“ I will drop money into a hat, with any
man in the.room. The one who holds out
longest shall take the whole and treat the
“ I’ll do it,” said an old farmer. The
cockney dropped in a quarter —the country
man followed with a “ Bungtown” copper.
“ Cl o on,” said the cockney.
“ I won’t,” said the farmer, “ take the
whole and treat the company.”
Tee-total Test. —The young ladies in Ver
mont, it is said, still continue to kiss the lips
of young temperance men to see whether
they have been tampering with toddy.
In the reign of Henry VIII. of England,
it was enacted that in order to prevent the
extension of “ poysonage,” persons guiliy of
the offence, should he “boiled to death.”
Conditional Verdict. —“ Gentlemen of the
jury, have you agreed ? wlial is your ver
dict ?” “We find the prisoner not guilty,
//"lie'll leave the town !”
“ Come down from that building, you ras
cal, and I'll knock your eyes out.”
“ You will, will you ?”
“ Yes, you scoundrel, I will.”
