And what does the nation assess to you As your share in the co t of this your a far thug of what would ill have Cost Yon to defend tent property from the army of general Lee recently driven from our state by National Groffe looked at me in a kind of Maze As though be thought me half in jest. What Fedum it have Cost Lee if unopposed would certainly have reached this City and held it and if your property had been of use to him or any o his officers soldiers it would have been appropriated without so much As by your leave would forty three Dol Arcand Twenty one cents have covered the perhaps not possibly you to igbo have lost one half to two thirds of u Yoa Are Worth growler was bewildered at this Way of putting the Case. He looked pus led. Yon have a store on South warns f said i. Has kept toe Alabama or the Florida from running up the Delaware and burning the whole City front do Yon save forts and ships of War for the Protection of your property if not who they Are provided and you Are Safe. What is your Sharer or he expenses for a whole year just forty three Twenty one cents it sounds growler did not raw or. So i kept on. For our immense armies in the Field and our Navy on the watery this rebellion Bare succeeded. What Erer pondered the future of this country in such an events. Haw yep our own position of Aflfe loss Ishik we at Pewe to. England property Only a Small percentage your income from that property i just forty three dollars and Twenty one Pardon me for saying it Friend growler but i am More than half aah Mcd of you and seeing you put Tho Case i am More than half ashamed of he answered frankly. Taking your View this is about the cheapest investment i Ever made certainly get More for your Money than in any other line of yesterday i had n letter from an old Friend living in the neighbourhood of Carlisle. The rebels took from him six Fine horses Worth two Hundred dollars a piece six cows and oxen and Over two Hundred bushels of Grain. A and not Content with plundering Hirn they Burnt Down a barn to Inch bad Cost him nearly two thousand dollars. But for the army raised and equipped by. The nation in support of which you and i Are taxed so lightly we might have suffered is severely. How much do you think it Cost in Money for the Protection we have enjoyed in this particular a million of dollars perhaps ten millions of dollars. From the time our army left the Rappa Bannock until the Battle of Gettysburg its Cost to the government could scarcely have been less than the and i have mentioned. Of this sum your proportion cannot be Over three or four dollars and for that trifle your property May be your life was held secure More of tent if you said growler showing some annoyance. Are running this thing into the own up Squire. I was quarrelling with my Best Friend. I was striking at the hand that gave me Protection. If my War tax next year should be a Hundred dollars in Stead of forty i will pay h without a t say without murmur Friend i gladly 4put it As Yon he answered folding no collector Biley s receipt which he still be Jet in his bund and i Wing himself oat. I Nany Days afterwards 1 happened to Shear some one grow rag Ito my a eight Yon make about it that Yoa bad Bee robbed of half Yon were Worth fifty eight dollars for Security at Home and Protection fifty eight dollars As your share in the Cost of defence against an that if unopposed will desolate Homes and destroy our government Al ready it has Cost the nation for your safety and mine Over a thousand millions of Dol Lars and Yon angry because it asks o you a Little part of the expense. Sir you Are not worthy the name of an american citizen hard talk growler and i won t Bear the other. True talk and you b have to hear was retorted. Fretting Over the mean Little sum of fifty eight Why sir i know a Man who has Given his right Arm in the cause and another who has Given Bis right leg. Do they grumble no i never heard a word of complain from their lips. Thousands and tens of thongs. Ends have Given their lives that you and 1 might dwell in safety. I know mothers who have Given their Boos and wives who have Given their and bos and husbands who will never More return they Are with the sir you Are Disho Noring yourself in the eyes of All men. A Grumbler Over this paltry War shame i turned off Wyret in my thought much Good Donet reclaimed sinner has become a preacher of righteous Ness Artemus Ward among the Mokross. A letter received in Chicago from a correspondent at great Silt Lake Utah territory tells of the Doii of Artemus Ward among the saints the Fol lowing is an a the extract Artemus Man who makes out Here lecturing and exciting considerable stir among our saintly Opul Tion.

Artemis will have of Morrow Bam Yard full of pigs granary full of Corn some hundreds of bushels of onions and potatoes enough eed All the poor of Ireland besides a Cott id Erable share of greenbacks Gold dust Corn the Bannock mines and chunks of Ilver from Nevada territory. As a mater of course he will convert All Bis pro uce into Coin or notes before he leaves and sell Bis pigskin the Best Market in Gynethe husband of Betsy a Deal r in pigs imagine Artemus Ward Annn factoring goats into Portne Quad pets bladders of lard i Artemis has Jee Brae a great Friend of president Brig am Young but Bia conduct towards the resident is giving Rise to to much scandal. Brigham As Yon know has Many wives with any number of children and the Story True it is i Don t pretend to to the effect that Artemus in visiting the harem of the Prophet has beguiled the affection of i fairest daughter. He May take her with him to Chicago and if so you will have a sight of one of our mormon beauties. The subject is tabled Here but the Rumor is Rife anyhow when Artemus Ward next visits you and gives a lecture the probability is that he will have some very strange Biles to ileff1 of our in the Wilder some five months ago s Young lady a native of Hli noise passed throng the lines for the purpose of relieving a brother who was a prisoner at Richmond.
