Gentle reader, possess thy soul in
patience while perusing these uncon
nected chapters from life. It is true,
you m-iy fail to seo the connection
existing between them, but we can as
sure you in advance that that discovery
has been, made bv ourselves. The
reason fur the want ol connection is
tbatr the Liberal, IIeptjblioan cot
being sufficiently endowed with -fuodi)
to hire a professional storywriter, ' and
haying no graduate to volunteer to fil
tlegap, we were compelled as wo were
behind our cotenjporaries) to do the best
we could. In travail of soul We implored
the Court Housf talent to come to our
assistance, and to their everl?-stin
credit be it said, they have nobly
responded. Our agreement is that fori
an occasic nal puff they will io turn write
a chapter of our serial, said agreement
to continue, and be in force as long as
grass grows aul water tuns,
That cy fugling female widow, Be
dott, ex?rtel all the pm er
of her maturid mind to capture the
affect ious ot

vere cast at her by maneuvering
minima, and eavious o'd maids, yet
-he wnt 03 rtgirdlcss of rcnurks.
Though to many her labor seemed a
fruitless one, yet the end shewed that
her master mind hud weighed well a'J
t he ditfic allies tint miht moot her
ind Ikt huperior genius enabled her to,
overcome them. Tier motto wn, ' The
end justifies the 'mean,' and, though
.she often in the solitude of her cham
ber condenned herself for many
unwomanly acts, yet if she could
lceotnplish her chef d'ouvre a
matrimonial alliance with the line of
Htiggins -her cup ol happiness would
be filled to repletion.
In hcr.case, as iu all other', fortune
favored the bra ve, and afte r a pro
tracted siege she capture! the fade
flections of tliT parson, and possessed

The foregoing example shewing us as
t does, what can be nccnuiplifdud by
perseverencc, is of itself enough to
coovinc'3 our readers that our o'er
true tale " is not far fetched and we
therefore present all the subscribers of
the liti5'nt org in of. Polk County with
the penning chapter of Piebild Slay a
man in verity and in truth.

thus without further circumlocution or

out missing a letter nude him learned,
yet, with all these advantages, his soul
was possessed with a strange unrest,
and his soaring genius would not per
mit him to tie himself down to any
quiet business. As the young crow
which at the first growth of the pin
teat hers locks fearfully dowu from his
nest in the spruce tree unwilling yet
anxious to trust himself alone, so the
youthful " Pie" cast around him for a
station in life fitted to his ability and

pelled to do something to make both
ends meet. Wake cushn ma
moke ilhhe memelone " was the motto
of the Stay family, and from the most
distant ancestor to the present nobly
had it been lived up to. Our young
hero found the world before him, and
truly it seemed to him a world filled
with! more kicks than ha'pence. In
his perturbed stato of mind he went to
his old adviser, the village blacksmith,
and asked his advise as to what calling
in his life he would adopt. Pulling
his forelock down over his eyes with
his forefinger and thumb and with a
Voldrj6s8 unusaal ttfone of his adoles

long breath and continued, Vou have

can advise me as to my proper calling

he hid donw the hammer on the anvil,
