DAILY MERCURY saturday, NOV. 22, 1813. WHO ABE THIS MUMMIES—Wis* WITH EGYPT IMMINENT. There have been many and loud complaints made by the Viceroy of Egypt against the people ofAaerica for Hratilating idifices and bearing away of the pyramids, etc., and jioven of stealing some of their mommies. This last accusa- tion has ever been consid- ered «s untrue. Bat, from a late dispatch from Galveston we learn that the importation of raritamies into this country has Deen detected and their existence traced to Galveston, and an order issued to Marshal Ochiltree to take possesbion of them and reship them to Egypt. From reliable sources we learn that Marshal Ochiltree found two of these mummies upon the Gal- veston District Democratic ticket —and that they tKill probably be returned to Egypt instead of the i Legislature after December 2d.

mi mSH'Mltjfiw Frail ronvcntioBBiit e®. BT TOM CAXTON. I do solemnly think that the dogondest, meanest thing a man or woman can do, when in free possession of square brains, is to send down word by Susan "not a$T home," when they are up stairs, and its a denied lie. It wouldn't be so mean, as far as they sue concerned, but the bur- den of the lying business falls on Susan, and is a reproach on servaiftgalism generally. There is*a nice metaphysical question here as to responsibility, but while the ecumenical council are settling it Susan has to lie along just the same, and is heaping up wrath, ahd so forth. I don't doubt but all the.Susan8 like to lie along, but they want to do it on their own account. There are several honest ways to avoid this lying. One is to keep a picket at the blinded window, and when Mips, ot Miss Flurry bottom come up the Man- sard jsyteps, let the picket alarm, and everybody keep still until plurrybottom departs. Another is to send a note to Mrs. or Miss Gam...
