A Chapter qn Cats. The following amus
ing discourse on cats, is clipped from the Vir
ginia Entcrpriie of Aug. 2 1 si :
When this town was small, cats was scarce.
A big price was paid for cats thrn. Tbey
brought tbem in cages from California. I
doo't know tbe price they sold lor; It may
have been 10. I wish cats was scarce now.
Now we have too plenty. Anybody can get
them for nothing the little ones. I dou't
like catB much, nor mother she don't, nor
unkle Fred. Unkle Fred, throws bottles at
'em out of bis bed-room window. Cats is
good enough in the day time, but I appeal to
a unpartial publick if tbey ain't a nuisance at
uigbt. " Jentle reader, come awhile with me
And bide in my bed-room and let's watch the
cats. It is dark. We can Bee the roofs of
the bouses, but the moon shineth not. Look
thou at that roof wbich comes nearly level
with iy window. That's the place for cats,
there's where they como every nifrht. They
luxuriatelb onto that- roof. Listen, reader,
lieardest thou that faint yowl ? They'll soon
be coming Another has answered very dis
tant. Hark) that scratching on toe tiu spouts.
Tbe first feller incoming up to begin. Now
t'other is onto the epout, coming up. Now
see the disposition of tbem cats. Tbey say
it's love ; may be it is. Now they-are crawl
ing toward each other with tails up and bodies
flat on the ridge. Tbey mutter low and deep.
Now see that big black feller; how heerectest
bis back 1 He upbeaveth it till be looketh
againFt the sky like Mt. Davidson, and his
tail appearetb like one of the big trees of Cal
nveras. The other cat stands opposite like
Cedar Bill. They flourished) nlol't their tails.
List, oh, list that shriek I It ringetb through
tbe town, passing down tbe streets thereof
even to the little dark alleys. The drowsy
policeman is awaked ; be rubbeth bis eyes
and sayeth to himself ; " Is not this tbe voice
of a drunk and disorderly ?"
But, jentle reader, we will return to our
subject. It will be remembered that-we left
our cats in the attitude of a contest. Their
tails are now like iron bars and movest not
except the tip ends which quiverest very
frantic. There is nn awful moment of sus
pense. Soon a wild shriek bursts upon tbe
stilly night, and them cats cometh together
ns two mighty crags from opposite mountains
might meet. Tbey thump their tails onto
the roof, they roll in convulsions and the
gentlo breeze is full of lmir. That crack was
Unkle Fred, throwing bottles at 'em. Now all
is silent ns the grave. Adieu, gentle reader,
Rich is cats.
