It was on the worst of nights in that worst of seasons. The atmosphere was in a Condi Ion of which it is difficult to speak re Spect much As we May be disposed to applaud the doings7of nature. It was Damp foggy and drizzling to sum up its imperfections in a sonorous and descriptive epithet it was Orrid rain Gay the air Hung about the wayfarer in warm unhealthy folds and extracted the starch from shirt Collar and from the bosom of his Dickey with As much rapidity As it robbed his spirits of their elasticity and melted the sugar of self complacency from his mind. The Street lamps emitted a ghastly White Glare so hemmed in. With Vaspory wreaths that Best efforts could not project a Ray of Light three feet from the Burner. Gloom was uni versa and any change even to the heat of or to the frosts of the Artic Circle in comparison have been delightful the pigs tails no longer waved in Graceful is Josities while the Tail of each night roving lecturing Bull dog ceased flaunting toward the Clouds a Banner of Wrath and Defiance to punier creatures and Hung Down drooping and dejected an Emblem of a heart Little Dis posed to quarrel and offence. The ornament als of the brute creation being thus below Par it was not surer sing that men with cares on their shoulders and ruggedness in their browsers should likewise be More melancholy than on occasions of a brighter Cha Raster. Every one at All subject to the skies who has had trouble enough to tear his clothes and to teach him that the Staple of this mundane existence is not exclusively made up of fun has Felt to fact philosophy is hut a barometric Al affair and that a who is proof against borrow when the air is Clear and bracing May. Be a Mise Rable wretch with no greater cause when the wind sits in another Quarter. Peler Brush is a Man of this susceptible class. His nervous system is of the most de Licate organization and responds to the Chan Ges of the weather As an eolian Harp sings to the fitful swellings of the Breeze. Peter was abroad on the night of which we speak either because unlike the younger Brutus he had no Portia near to Tell him that such exposure was not and that it was the part of prudence to go to bed or that although aware of the dangers of Miasma to a Man of his Constitution he did not happen at that moment to have Access to i Iber House or bed in his opinion two essential pre req misites to couching himself As he regarded it Al Fresco on a cellar door not Likely to answer any Sanator purpose. We incline ourselves to the opinion that he was in the dilemma last mentioned As it had previously been the Fate of other great but be that As it May or. Peter Brush was in the Street As melancholy As an a braced drum a Gib d cat or a lugged seated upon the curb with his feet across the Gutter he placed his Elbow on a stepping Stone and like Juliet on the Balcony leaned his head upon his band that would them princes not your Trust in my sentiments. You right list As Well try to hold an eel by the Tail. I Don t which Side they re on for i be tried both Aad i know. Put not your Trust in politician ers or you la get a Hyst. Ten years ago it came into my head that things weren t going on right so i pretty nearly gave myself up tee totally to the Good of the Republic and left the shop to look out for itself. I was so brimful of patriotism and so uneasy in my mind for the salivation of Freedom i could t work. I tried to guess which Side was going to win and i stuck to it like Wax sometimes i was a one Side sometimes i was a t other and sometimes i straddled till the election was Over and came up list in time to Jine the Hurrah. It was Good i was after and what Good could i do f i was t on. The elected Side but after All it was never a bit of use. Whenever he Battle was Over no matter what Side was Haring out the loaves and the fishes and i Teppert up i la be hanged if they did t cram All they could into their Mouths put heir arms Over some and grab at All the rest Vith their paws and say go away White Man you Ain t capable i be got As Exten Sive a Throat As any of pm and i could Swal of the loaves and fishes without choking if Ach loaf was As Large As a Grindstone and each ish As big As a Sturgeon. Give Peter a Chance Brush soon unwittingly fell into a troubled murmuring sleep in which Bis words were Mere repetitions of what be had said before the general scope of the argument being to prove the received axiom of former times that republics do not distribute their favours in proportion to services rendered and that in the speaker s opinion they Are nor in this respect much better than the Pancea against whom his Mother cautioned him. Such at least was the conviction of or. Brush at which he had arrived not by and Dis Tant observation Bill by his own personal Prience. It is a Long Lane which has no turning and it is a Long sleep in the open air Espe Dally in a City which does not meet with interruption. Brush found it so in this in stance As he had indeed More than once be fore. Several gentlemen followed by a dog arrived at the foot of the Steps and after a Short conversation dispersed each to Bis Sev eral Home. One however owner of the whistling for his canine Favourite took out his night key and walked up the Steps. The dog bounding be fore his master suddenly stopped and after attentively regarding the recumbent Brush uttered a Sharp rapid bark. The rapidity of mental operations is such that it frequently happens if sleep be disturbed by external sounds that the noise is in and leave him alone for that. Then another meeting of buyers of new goods store. Mass meetings of the of the Down system Are every Day of sundays except id at the store of in Lavre Neville where goods Nail m cheap As at any other Eita Oltsik Thi county. He 11 a Friend to Home Protection White Pink lumber will be to for goods. 1845. Perhaps been tha better of a none would have been rash enough to Volun Teer to be a Glove upon it. He was in a dilapidated at elbows out at Knees out. Of pocket out of office out of spi rits and out in the out and outer in every respect and As outre a mortal As Ever the Eye of Man did rest upon. For some time or. Brush s reflections had been silent following Hamlet s advice be gave understanding but no and relieved himself at intervals by spitting forlornly into the Kennel. At length suffering his locked hands to fall Between his knee and heaving a deep sigh he spoke a Long time ago Ray a used to put on her specs and my son put hot your Trust in princes and from that Day to this i barn t done anything of the kind be cause none on pm Ever wanted to Borry no thing of me and i Neve see a Prince or a or two and they bad been rotated but of Borry nothing of time when i i want some Days i a Small bucket full of whichever Side gets in shares the spoils Don to they 7 so they first grinned arid then they ups and tells me that virtue like mine was its own Reward and spoils might spoil me. But it was no that spoil me and no loaf and fish that starved i m spoilt because i could t get put not your Trust in say it Gin. Both sides arsed me list alike. Here i be been serving my country More or less these ten years like a to town meetings hurrying my daylights out and getting As Blue As the win Dows getting licked fifty times and having More Black eyes and bloody noses than you could shake a stick at All for the common Good and for purity of our illegal and All for what Why for Nix. If arly Good has come from it the country has put it into her own pocket and swindled me out of my earnings i can t get no of Ike republics is ungrateful it was t Reward i was after. I scorn the base insinuation. I Only wanted to be took care of and have no thing to do but to take care of the Public and i be Only got to do being took care of was the main thing re i Public is ungrateful i m swaggered if they Ain t. This is the Way old Sowers is Peter having thus unpacked Hiso erf Raught heart heaved a sigh or two As every one does after a recapitulation of their own injuries and remained for a few minutes wrapped in abstraction. Well said he mournfully swaying his head to and fro after the sagacious fashion of lord and and world s not what a Man takes it for before he finds it out. Whiskers grow a Good Deal sooner than and patriotism aint got no Charice a Heigh to but any How a Man might As Well be under Kiver As out in tha open air in Sich weather As this. It s As cheap laying Down is settin up and there s not so much Wear and tear about with a groan a Yawn and a sigh Peter Brush slowly arose and stretching himself like a drowsy lion he walked toward the Steps of a neighbouring House. Having reached the top of the flight he turned about and looked r9und with a scrutinizing glance peer ing both up and Down the Street to Ascer Tain that none of the hereditary enemies of the brushes were in the Vicinity. Being satisfied on that score he prepared to enjoy All los Comfort that his Peculiar situation could command. According to the modern sys pm of warfare he carried no baggage to encumber his motions and was always ready to bivouac without troublesome preliminaries. He therefore placed himself on the upper step so that he was just within the doorway is head reclining against one Side of it and his feet braced against the other blockading the passage in a very effectual manner. He adjusted in position As carefully As the sybarite who waa annoyed at the wrinkle of a Rose Leaf on his Couch grunting at each motion like a Daniel Lambert at his toilet and he made minute alterations in his Atti tude several times before he appeared perfectly satisfied that he had effected the Best arrangements that could be devised. After reposing for a while As if the Flinty and steel Couch of War were his thrice driven bed of he moved his head with an exclamation of impatience at the hardness of the Wall and taking his time worn Beaver be crumpled it up and mollified the austerity of his bolster by using the crushed Bat As a Pillow. St Ritly caught up by the car and incorporated with the subject of the perhaps a Drearr. Is instantaneously formed upon the nucleus suggested by the vibration of the tym panum. The bark of the dog bad one of these effects non or. Brush. Bow wow said the dog. There s a fellow making a speech against our muttered Peter but it s All talk where s your facts your speech in pamphlet form and i la answer it. Hurray for else is but ruination when that fellow s principles get the upper Side for we re the boys be still said the now sir be pleased to get up and carry yourself to some other place. I Don t know which Side has the honour of claiming you but you Arl certainly on the wrong Side at Don t be official and trouble yourself about other people s said Brush trying to open his eyes Don t be it in t the genteel not official what do you mean by that i shall be very official arid Tumble you Down the Steps if you Are not a Little More rapid in your of very responded Biuso As he wheeled round in a sitting posture and fron Ted the As Sassy As you suppose you be got an of fice by the Way you got one of the fishes though perhaps it is but a min once. He therefore assisted the fallen to Iribe r to Are used to Leing knocked the Steps and the pavement Are no worse than other like politician ers can t put any Trust in pm. Continued Brush drawing a Roll of crumpled paper from the Crown of his still More Crum pled Here a Clever fellow and i la get you to sign my recon Merida Ion splendid character for me All ready it won t give you Kab of to put your name to does it recommend you land of recommendation is it it s a circular slap at any thing that s firing into the flock i suppose that s it for any fat Post either under the City govern ment the state government or the general government. Now list put your fist to added Peter in his most persuasive tones As he smoothed the paper Over his it Tipon the step and produced a bit of Lead Pencil which he first moistened with his lips and then offered to his interlocutor. Excuse my was tie laughing response it s too can t Aee either to read or o write. But what made you a politician a Haven t you got a Trade replied Brash contempt rely but what s a Trade when a Feller s got a soul i lore my and i want an what so it s fat and i be a Genus for Tell no people what to do and looking at pm do t. I want to take care of my country and want my country to take care of head work is the Trade i m made my in the streets talking in the bar rooms talking in the oys Ter cellars. Talking is the grease for the by and i had i d show you a tiling or two. Be Sassy Beany thing or. Noodle soup i Don t know which Side you Are on either but i do know one in t saying much for your Boss politic Ianer that he chose you when i must have been Wagon wheels of the body politic and the body corpulent and nothing will go Oil Well till i be got my say in the matter for i can talk All Day and most of the night Only Slop Ping to wet my whistle. But parties is All ungrateful no respect for Genus no respect for me. I be tried both nothing and i be a great mind to know pc off and Call it half a Day. I would if my Genus did t make me talk and think and sleep so much i can t find time to Baid the stranger Yon must find time to go away. You re too noisy How would you like to go before Ibe no i d rather not. Stop now i think of it i be asked him before but perhaps if you d speak a Good word he d give vacancy. Introduces say i want something to do not something to want something to get my Genus won t let me work. I d like to have a fat salary and to be general superintendent of things in general and nothing in particular so i could walk about the streets and see what is going on. Now put my Best leg How i make speeches and How i can hurray at away with said the stranger As he ran up the Steps and opened the you v Law sir ask Kenj favourably in tie editorial department of.

But thinking in this Way is always a hazardous Experiment whether it. His list for All though you Are so stiff and think yourself pretty to look at.
