Robert E. Lee Portrait
THE NEW TARIFF ON DRY GOODS.
Unhappy condition of the Optic
Nerve of a Custom House Appraiser who has been counting the Threads in a Square
Yard of Fabric to ascertain the duty thereon under the New MORRILL Tariff. The
Spots and Webs are well-known Opthalmic Symptoms. It is confidently expected
that the unfortunate man will go blind.
THE LATEST MARTYR.
Horrible Phantasms disturb the
Slumbers of the newly-appointed Custom-House Entry-Clerk, who has come into
Office with the New MORRILL Tariff, and spent a Morning in the vain endeavor to
make something out of it.
CONSULTING THE ORACLE.
