Robert E. Lee Portrait
"The day after the Fight the
Seneca and two other Gunboats, under the command of Lieutenant AMMON, proceeded
up to Beaufort and found but ONE WHITE MAN IN THE TOWN, AND HE WAS DRUNK."—Report
of the Expedition.
"The Negroes were seen in great
numbers, and, as the boats passed, came down to the Shore WITH BUNDLES IN THEIR
HANDS, AS IF EXPECTING TO BE TAKEN OFF."—Report of the Expedition.
POLICEMAN WILKES, noticing
by the last Number of
Harper's Weekly, that the well-known Rogues,
MASON and SLIDELL,
were about to Pawn some of their late Employer's Property at Messrs. Bull,
Crapaud & Co.'s Shop, kept a bright look-out for'ard, and nabbed them in the
nick of time."

MARY. "Did you never, Julia, See
it work before? Try it once, you'll surely Use it evermore ; Such a little
treasure Ne'er before was seen, Oh ! 'tis such a pleasure Sewing by machine!"
JULIA. "Isn't it delicious?
How the needle flies!
I can scarce its movement Follow
with my eyes ! How it goes, like lightning, Flashing through that seam! Mary,
dear, I almost
Fancy it a dream."
MARY. "Oh ! the toil it saves me,
Merry little thing! Jumping, with its click, click,
While I sit and sing; Lightly as
a feather On it goes apace,
Through the toughest leather
Or the finest lace."
JULIA. "My! how very clever Such
inventions are ! Working just like human Beings, I declare; Tell me, Mary,
dearest, Where I ought to go, For Papa must really Get me one, you know."
MARY. "Let it be like mine, then,
Julia, take advice; None that I
have seen yet
Are one half so nice; Some won't
keep in order- Needles snap in two—Causing botheration, Spite of all you do.
