Imagine dear Reader Nehemiah and his Polly Ann seated beside each other engaged in close and Loving Chat and in order to show the thread of their discourse in its Mast vivid Light we shall give a sketch of their conversation. A dear Polly a said Nehemiah As he affectionately implanted a kiss upon her Coral lips a i likes you As Well As i do myself or better than i do Uncle bends Gray Mare a 1 now you done to say so Nehemiah a she said Ian gushing by looking him full in the face. For a moment he seemed abashed and scarcely knew whether to take her reply As a jest or for real earnestness. In a Short Timo to breathed free and proceeded in a in truest and do a vent though thut old daddy and Mammy of Yourn arc against us who cares i can to we run away Anil gel married 1 wont old father Church do the splicing up Brown 7 Well i guess to will now so let the old folks go to smash and Well go to the state of Matrimony. But a Spose my dad catches me so reusing it off a said she timidly clutching his Arm a what u thumping walloping ill get and the Way hell Cudgel you will be a caution to and poles a and then she blubbered right out never fear that. Now done to cry any More a said he wiping her eyes with his shirt sleeves. As the poet says Polly Ann a i do nut milk me let just like Diek Duck the full Init purr but Tell me if you will tic Mino for bolter or fur Winner a i like your plan Nehemiah a said she. A and i am your Gal and no mistake. I am Sartin that i likes you and i think that you like me so let us fool the old folks who a afraid v by this time the conversation had increased from a whisper into quite a loud talk which had awakened the old Man who arose and with a noiseless trend proceeded to the door of the Kitchen. To listened mud found out the subject matter of their talk. Anger took Possession of his bosom and seizing the first thing within his reach he let it Fly at them with All his might. It was a Crock of soft soap the contents of which went full into Nehei Niah a face who soon recovering from the Shock Mode tracks for the door and in doing so he fell Over the Cream Jar. Here was in the Sublime language of a Beautiful writer a the Devil to pay and no Back door to get out he gathered himself up As fast As he could and went Home so fast that an egg would have Laid on his coat Tail without rolling off in the mean Lime Polly As might be supposed caught a Jossey a and was sent to bed the old Nan All the Lime declaring that rather than let her merry Nehemiah. He would shave off his whiskers and quit smoking his pipe. Soon order reigned in Nehemiah covered with soft soap and full of sad misgivings reached his Home. He sought his bed and thought the matter Over and vowed in his in ind that since he Hud been so effectually Salt son pod lie would slide upon the railway of Bachelor ism which Resolution he has faithfully kept. But Polly did no to take on so hard for in a few Mouths after the events just recorded she married Echo Syphat the Butcher s apprentice. In concluding this Tail of a tale it Only remains for us to soy that the moral of it is that Young folks when they make love to Ench Othor should not Tulk so loud As to awaken the old people and that whilst they Are soft soap inns each other with honed words they should not suffer themselves to he sort Sou Jed by a third . Shady Grove May 1, 1848. Messes. your last paper Isadore said truly a a thut old bachelors Are the most miserable set of beings in the world a but she might have said further that the cause of their misery could invariably he traced to the same source that the fall of Man is traced the latter cause is some distance Bock i admit but it has been correctly recorded. And May be found in genesis in 12, since which event a a misery Quot has been Tho Birthright of Man.

It has Ever been thus these a a Angels a have Ever been the cause of our undoing and the source of our misery and yet Forsooth they can cast it at us throw it in our Teeth at every turn Point the Finger of scorn at us and mock at us while they arc the living authors of it of women women 1 what have you not to answer for a a old maids Honora ble 1&Quot indeed. 1 have no idea messes. Editors who Isadora is but 1 would guess from the Tenor of her article thut she is one of that self styled honorable hand who hurl invectives at us because she is left Topie in pensive sadness for the want of one of these a a miserable beings a and who would spend More Timo in arranging her curls than a Bachelor would Over his whole wardrobe who would kill her poodle with excessive care and stroke All the fur off her a a poor Pussey so Hack for the pure love of it hut enough of this. The want of a a Benevolence is not the Only cause for bachelors my if pampering a woman a every Idle whim Aud fancy can be called Benevolence. The coquette of whom there Are no Lack is the main cause she spreads her web and Enve Igles into its meshes All who Are unfortunate enough to come in Contact with her merely for the love of flattery Awakening feelings in a Many a breast that she is in capable of responding to and leaving him to bemoan his Fate on the approach of a new victim. A the Lienert Tinl lion Italy loved never forgets Bui As truly loves on to die we Quot and the Man that has once lored no matter How unworthy the object on whom his affections were placed will never risk his happiness a second time in another a keeping. Dut suppose prudence does warn him to a a pause Ere seeking happiness so dear would it then he his limit 1 suy no and for this reason a a a he sees the pretty foot and ankle a and knows that they can he covered with nothing but Morocco guitars Utida silk Hose. A a he thinks of the tiny hand a and he knows thut that hand will require hoop after hoop of Gold and kid gloves by the dozen to cover it without Ever being soiled to assist in procuring them. A who thinks of the fairy like form a hut he remembers the Silks the satins the de inns the tinsel and gew Gaws thut the ingenuity and capriciousness of women alone could devise that a Aye that a the word must cover it for nothing else will do of the sofas and lounges thut that form a a must have to repose on of the delicate and Dainty hits it a a must be nourished with of the servants it a a must Quot Hugo to attend it of i might fill your paper with what a a must a a he procured to satisfy the imperative demands of my lady for All Cru indies now Ndu 8, there Are no women us ladies they must he wooed and worn if won at nit he knows nil this and he knows that he has but his own unaided exertions to meet this enormous sex.

Now this has All been brought on by the ladies themselves they have elevated the Standard of Clig Btl.

My happiness has been wrecked on these rocks messes. Editors and 1 must acknowledge i no sen. Stive on these Points.
