^ - p The Way to Fix If. If you want to write a very dignified article—smooth and slick—write an editorial.

| rit%r ^bnthitm's ftlnps THE Manchester Union tells a good story. In the northern part of Merrimack county, a crowd of the unterrificd were sitting on a piazza the other day, when an old traveler, ragged, dirty, rusty, unshaved and unshorn, and evidently half-seas over , strolled up the piazza and stared vacantly at the crowd, which began to ply him with questions. Finally, a man said to him, " You're a Seymour man , ain't you, old fellow?" Straightcuing up,.the old man answered : "From my present appearance you would probably judge I was a Democrat, but I ain't. I learned my politics before I took to drink." This traveler was not Frank Blair. CHAIRMAN Wallace , of the Democratic Committee, has just issued another address " to the people of Pennsylvania." in which much of the old clap trap about the negro is revamped. He endorses in glowing terms the Democratic platform, and eulogizes its candidate for the Presidency, Horatio Seymour, but significantly omits mention of Frank ...

§uz tittle |oIus The Mosquito Hunt. Xot a sound was heard but a terrible 1mm, As around tiie clianilici- we hurried, In search of the mosquito whose trumpet and drum Our delectable slumbers hud worried. We sought it darkly at dead uf night, Our coverlet carefully turning, By the struggling moonbeam's misty light, And the candle dimly burning. Xo useless garments confined our breast, But in simple night-dress and slippers, We wandered about like spirits distressed, Or the sails of piratical skippers. Short and a few wen; the words we let fall, "sfLest the sound should molest the mosquito, But we steadily gazed on the white-washed wall, And thought how we had been bit, Oh ! But half an hour seemed to elapse Ere we met with the wretch that had bit us, And raising our boots, gave some terrible slaps, And made the mosquito qvietw. Quieklv and gladly wetumedftoqitiiB.ilead, And left him all smashed and |#ry' ," Ami blew out the candle and popped Into bed, Determined to t^ fOTl thr S...
