Tho bue of her hide was a duskr brown,
Her body was lean, and her neck was slim,
Oa- horn turned up and the other down.
She was keen of vision and Inn; of limb.
With a Roman nose and a short stump tail,
And ribs like the Loops on a home-made
Many a mark did her body bear !
She had been a tared for all tblogefcnowD,
OnVnniiv a soar the dusky hair
Would grow no more where it once bad
Many a passionate parting shot
blud k'ft upon her a lasting spot.
Many and many a well-aimnd stone, .
Many a brickbat of condly size,
And iimny a cudgel, swiftly thrown,
Hud brought tfiirs to her bovine eyes;
Or hud houmlfd nffrroin hor bony buck,
Witb a noise like the sound of a rifle crack.
Many a day had she passed in the pound
For helping- herself lo her neighbor s corn
Many a cowardly cur and hound
Hud been transfixed by heitxrumpled hoin,
Many a tea pot and old tin pail
Had the farm bojs tied to her limoworn tuil.
Old Deacon Gray was a pious man,
I hough sometimes tempted to be prolaoe
When many a weary mile he ran
To drive her out of his crowing grain,
Sharp were the pranks that she use to play j
lo get ber Oil, and to get away.
She knew when the Deacon went to' town ;
She wisely watched him when he wept by;
He. never pawed her without a frown,
And an evil gleum in eucll angiy eye,
He would cruck his whip in a surly way,
And drive along in his "one-hoss shay."
Then at his homestead she loved to call.
Lifting bis burs with her crumpled horn,
Nimbly scaling his garden wall ;
Helping hersll to the standing corn,
Eating his cabbages, one by one ;
Hurrying homo when her work was done.
Often the Deacon homeward came,
Humming a tune from the house of prayer,
His hnpelul heart in a tranquil Iraine,
His soul as culm us the evening air, -
His loreheud smooth as a well worn plow,
To find in bis garden that highway cow.
His human passions were quick ) rise,
And striding forth with a savago cry,
With fury blazing from both his eyes,
As lightnings hash Irom a summer sky,
Redder and redder his face would grow,
And alter the creature he would go.
Over the garden, round and round,
Breaking his pear and apple trees,
Tramping his melons into the ground,
Overturning Ins hive of bees,
Living him angry and badly stung,
Wishing the old cow's neck was wiung.
The rhbsietf grew on tue garden wall ;
The years went by with their worg una
'l'he boys of the village grew strong and tall;
And the era? haired farmers pissea away,
One by one, as the red leaves fall ;
JJut the highway cow outlived them an.
All earthly creatures must have their day,
And many must nave inuir montus uuu
Some in dying will long delay ;
There is a climax to all careers ;
And the highway cow at last was slain
In running a race witb a railroad train.
All into pieces at once she went,
Just like sayings banks when they tail ;
Out of the world was swiftly sent ;
Little was left but ber slump tail.
The farmer's cornfields and gardens now
Are bauited do more b the highway cow.

WASHINGTON GOSSIP, i
';i 'Washington, March 21, 1S7G. ;
' Here is a story ol three honest trav
elers who dined ot an inn and saw in
one ol tho rooms a very costly watch.
When they had goue away together
the German said : "I wish I had left
my brass n atch and brought away the
gold one." . ('I wish,?' said the' Hun
garian, "I had taken tho watch." "I
have it in my pocket," said the Bohe
mian. It afterwards appeared that
the German had indeed made tho ex
change he upoko of ; but as tho Hun
garian had immediately stolen tho
gold watch from him ho took nothing
by the exchange, The good Bohe
mian, despising such dishonesty, ex
posed it to tho police. It'Donn Piatt
is td be believed, somolhing ot this
kind has been going on in President
Grant's Cabinet; and ho mentions tho
tall of Belknap, the resignation ot At
torney General Williams, the thrice
attempted burning of tho Navy De
partment building to destroy dam
aging papers, and tho payment of
fraudulent cotton and railroad claims,
and the Lord knows what other evils
and blessings as a few of the results.
His story involves tho Writing of anon
ymous letters by one lady of the
Cabin 3t, exposing tho wickedness of
other ladies aud tlco gentlemon of the
Most likely this is all true ; at least
the greater part of it is odicially
proven and publicly known. I men
tion it only because, taken with pend
ing exposures in tho immediate family
of the Prcsideut, in connection with
post-tradeships and the like petty in
famies, it shows a condjtion of things
which would have swept any Chief
Executive, at any other time, out of
his seat, as soon as tho forms of law
could bo complied with, and without
waiting for an election, and havo
broken any party to atoms.
Yet in tho taoe of all this, New
Hampshire gives its old-fashioned
Republican majority, Democratic
Connecticut is in doubt, anol tho
town elections ovorewhere in the
North sliow Republican gains. The
best men of the party have left it and
are m opposition or are silent; its
present leaders in Congress are in no
belter moral standing before tho
country than are thoso who surround
thj White House. In short the party
organization is a stench in the nos
trils ot tho people, but those same
people vole solidly in its support.
There is but one explanation ot this
thero can bo but one and readers
of this correspondence do not need
to be told what that explanation is.
We took occasion in advance of tho
speeches oi Messrs. Hill and Tucker
in the House lo deprecalo the airing
of Southern rhetoric on tho subject
ot the war, or the causes which led
to the war, or the principles under y
ing it, and warned our leaders of the
inevitable effect ot such utterances.
We called attention to the tact that
the generous, impulsive men who
made the bulk ot tin Northern array,
as of th Southern, would mast read
ily respond to any advances niado
them from the South, but would in
fallibly resent any supposed insult to
the c3uso they fought lor, or any un
necessary or ostentatious justification
of the cause they fought against. It
was not the inflammatory speeches of
Morton, B'uiuo aud Garfield, that
drove the volunteer soldiers of New
Hampshire to the polls, a compact
body ot Republicans voters; for such
speed es hive lost their power, but it
was thoso ol Hill and 'lucker which
could do io good in the Sjuth, but
which have such power for evil in the
North that it they are continued
Uclknap himself could be elected

any principles of government or not,
is d qnestiou that a wise minority
will diMcuss when discussion will Help
their cause, or at least when it will
not prolong and intensify tbe evils
Irom which they and their con
stituents sutler. Ihere is yet time
for Lamar and Gordon and Hancock
to speuk. It is time for Hill and
Toombs and Tucker to be silent.
Tho proceedings in Congress lor
the past week have been unimpor

ing the Judiciary committee from
presenting the articles of impeach
ment against Belknap, but having
been granted immunity he will be

Tho Hon. David A." Well's story,
with a dozen illustrations by Aost,
will be published to morrow by Har
pers it Brothers. It is a narrative
which takes up Do Fou's story at tho
point of tho arrival of tho English
sailors on the islatui, when tho inhab
itants began to need currency. They
first used cowrie, collected with con
siderable labor about tho island; this
currency was increased, and business
took a tine start, when some enterpris
ing fellows found heaps of cowrie on
a neighboring island,
"Finally,' the secret of the whole
matter leaked out. Other people be
sides the original three shrewd telhVws
louiKt out where the supply ot cowries
came Irom, ami made haste to visit
the remote island, provide themselves
witn money, and put it in circulation.
But tho more 0moiiey that was is
sued tho inoro was needed to supply
tho wants ot trade, until at last it
took a four-horse wagon load of cow
rie's to buy a bushel of wheat. Then
the bubble burst. Stock companies
all failed. Trade became utterly stag
nant. The man whom Robinson
Crusoo bad mado secretary of the is
land treasury thought ho could help
matters by issuing a few more cow-
s, but it was ot no use.
The shrewd and idle fellows who
had first found the cheap supply of
cowries had taken very good care to
keen the substantial valuablo things
houses, lots, plows, grain, etc,
which they had received in exchange.
They had in fact, gftiwn rich by rob
bing the rest ot the community, lhe
community, however, were too cour
teous to call them thieves, and in con
versation they were usually referred
to as shrewd financiers, and as men
ahead of their time. The concluding
act of the curious island experience
was, that the formerly so highly priz
ed money became depreciated to such
an extent as to possess value only as
a material tor making lime. The
people accordingly, by burning, made
limo out of it, and then, in order to
make things outwardly cheerful, used
the lime as whitewash."
Soon tin y discovered gold, aud in
troduced it as currency, but not with
out objection. In the next generation,
tobniHoti Crusoe and the other sutler-
era by the cowrio experiment having
lied, paper currency and inlJation
came into tasuion. borne oi me most
iitilar books which wero published
about this time on tho island had the
following suggestive titles: "A' Na
tional ; Debt a National Blessing;"
"Don't Pav as you Go, a sure Way to
Get Rich;'" "Pulling at your Boot
straps tho best Way to Rise in the
World, and tho like. 1 his experiment
was popular, and tho new principles
of trade were generally adopted by en
terprising men. But tho great, tri
umph ot "representative money was
when tho foot-and-mouth diseaso at
tacked tho cattle, and there was no
milk to bo had. There Was an im
mense public meeting to demand that
tho "Lacteal Fluid Association" at
once issuo more milk tickets.
"That night the babies were all sup

of milk. Milk-tickets sweetenod, milk-
tickets plain, milk-tickets with their

liut, strange to say, tho babies, one
and all, with that same sort of in
stinctive perversity which induces
children of a larger growth to refuse
to accent shams for reality, and be
grateful in addition, refused to take
to milk tickets. Tho uproar ot the
night preceding was as nothing to
thedisturhances of tne night following
and morning dawned upon aa unre-
fieshcd and troubled population. As
soon as tho necesary arrangements
could be made, another meeting asscm
l.h'd. But the meeting this time was
composed of babies, backed by their
mammas and nurses. There was no
theory in their sentiments; hnd though
young in yearn, one and all felt that
they had lived long enough to know
what their fathers apparently did not
know namely.tho diHereuce between
milk and paper. The resolutions
voted were brief, but to the poiut, and
were substantially as lollows;
"First, that the exigencies of the
times demanded more milk, and not
more milk-tickets; second, that the
way to get more milk was to have
more cows; third, that the way to get
more cows was to go to work and raise
them, or raise something else equally
vahiable,and then with this something
j else buy cows; fourth,', Ityai. rbere are
