The politicians of �?T48 have More the appearance of a drove of sheep without a Leader than anything we can compare them to or More properly with so Many leaders that the flock gets confused and wanders after strange Bell Wethers. Firat the old Foco Loco wether loads off his flock promising them Good pasture and Green Hills to browse upon if they would follow him quietly. All went on very Well until n cold evening came when All old Lamb or some say his Coal was most too foxy for a Lamb thinking he Hail been sheared closer than the rest commenced frisking round to keep himself warm and carried his gambol so far Flint he got lost in the Woods and was nearly caught by a Wolf when he found temporary safety in a Farmers barnyard. Some of his fellow so copies started out to find and bring him Back but they must have been lost As they Hugo never since been heard of. The opposition then Cumo along with their drove and having heard of the desertions in the other flock thought to entice their lambs along by promising them an occasional lick of Salt and some More grape a they were Liberal in their promises and sure they would get Safe to the Tine Fields but the sheep looked bad they were continually bleating hoping to hear something of that poor Little foxy Lamb. At every barn they passed some would scamper off so Many left the drove in this Way that the leaders got mad and swore they would set every barn on fire they came to. The flock has finally become so scattered that they con never be collected without Tho assistance of dogs not to worry but merely to find them. So it is in politics. One Bolt from the regular nomination has been followed by others in such rapid succession that there is no telling where it will end. The people love generally been put into cocked huts and so Shook up that they done to know who they a to for or who is for them. The leaders in counting their strength Are in the same predicament that the irishman was with the Flea when they put their Finger on them they Are not there the voters no is the Constable said a a non coment ibus in Swanpo a which Means that they Are in such a swamp of political doubts and uncertainties that the leaders can t get them counted. Now in this state of the Case after the a a lords a have so signally failed to unite on the candidates or have agreed to disagree we have a proposition to make that must please All parties. It is this let the ladies decide. They Are free from party prejudices and Are More Lilly to unite to a Man than the lords. We do not mean that they a Hull Deposit the Bulloss of nol that would be Loo a feminine. Let the husband vote As the wife directs.

Done to think Young men that we would exclude you from voting because you have no wife to decide for you i to would have you vote for your indy love and if you have no love you have no Vole. Instead of carrying naturalization papers to the polls those who have not sworn allegiance to King cupid on the altar of Hymen and become naturalized to the Yoke of Matrimony must carry a certificate from the indy that takes an interest in him that to is authorized to vote for her. All should be disfranchised who Are unmarried at 30 years of age. What do you say ladies 1 should not the election be decided in this Way t if you think so Call a convention and arrange the preliminaries.

Four Beautiful locusts that have adorned that Corner and shaded both anti and beast for Many Summers were Luid Low by the destroyers axe on last tuesday morning. We involuntarily exclaimed a a Woodman Aparo that tree touch not a single Bough in youth it sheltered to and i la protect it but it wus of no Avail the edict of the despoiled had gone Forth and the Trees went Down. May the destroyer never feel the want of their refreshing Shade in a sultry Day is our Earnest wish. Coloured night sooner had we succeeded in getting rid of the nuisance so frequently spoken of in the locomotive than another band very much similar though different in color mid that to verily believe not More than skin deep Rose up even More hideous than the former yelping howling and carousing round our streets ready and willing to commit any and every depredation upon the peaceable inhabitants even to the injury of their persons. We Are informed that a band of the Black rascals formed a plan to trip up the passers Bye by Means of tying ropes across the Side walks and in Many instances succeeded too Well in their infamous design. They deserved to be kidnapped or such he Lisle attempts up the shins of our citizens. Forf. In Brooklyn a Firo occurred in Brooklyn n.
