,IAELLV'S FAVORITE. With charming grace and plaintive voice My Nellie sang her favorits songs, l With that soft, sympathetic tone, - Which to good taste belongs. * C Soft words of love-of tender love- fi She warbled forth to music sweet ; fi And quite enraptured I became While listening to the vocal treat. o And when she stopped, I begged of her ii To sing for me just once again a Some pleasant, gentle song-in fact, I asked her for her favorite strain; And I prepared myself with joy, To hear the song of Nelly's choice, t Some sweet, low strain of love no doubt, r Just suited to her tender voice. And lightly o'er the pearly kes 1 Her slender, graceful fingers ran, Until she found her favorite tune, And then with vigor she began, She ope'd her pretty month, (Oh, dear' What bliss, could I her fodder be,) And in a voice; so sad and sweet, She sang, "Shoo fly! don't bodder me !" a Horrible Affair in Richmond Va.

This is a virtual admission on the part of the Radicals that they are incapable of coping with the great financial questions of the day. After expending their exertions in so ar ranging the Reconstruction measures as to outrage the people of the South, they have exercised their ingenuity in a Tariff which shall build up New Eng land interests at the expense of the hard-working farmers of the West.
