' It 's strange," said she, referring to the statement that a locomotive had been driven off the track by one of the switches. " Who would thought, " she.mused, "that one of them big iron locofocos would have minded such a litlie thing as a switch ?" "But, aunt," interposed Ike, who was trim, ming a limb of his Christmas-tree with the brig ht jack-knifo lhat he found suspended thereto, " you know the locofnotivo has & lender behind."

The "natural and legitimate operation" of this state of things, is to introduce Slavery into Kansas, just as iho samo siato of things introduced Slavery into Arkansas..
