Robert E. Lee Portrait
JACK FALSTAFF HOLLINS (in
the Bar-Room of the
St. Charles at New Orleans). "I've Peppered Two
of them ; One, I am sure, I have Sunk. I tell thee what, if I tell thee a lie,
spit in my face, call me horse. Four came all a front, and mainly, made at me. I
made no more ado, but took all their seven fires in my Iron-clad Craft ; they
followed me close, and with a thought Seven of the Eleven I ran aground."
[Compare SHAKESPEARE, First Part
Henry II., Act II., Scene 4. ]
SOUTHERN PLANTER. "Pomp,
you Rascal ! do you see any of those Cussed Yankee Ships coming this way ?"
POMP (suddenly becoming
Serious). "Lor' bress you, Massa, I'se so awful scared since you was a-tellin me
de Yankees would sell me into Cuba, dat I can't see nuffin' at all."
CAESAR (behind the door)
"That's so. Yah! yah!"
BROTHER JONATHAN, who has been
getting up a Military Statue, succeeds very well in the Model of the Figure, but
wants a Head. Which of our Generals will furnish the Model for that ? He waits
for a reply.

The Sewing Machine.
With fingers nimble and fine,
With features gladsome and gay, A
lady sat in her pretty boudoir,
Joyfully working away.
Click! click ! click !
In comfort she satólike a queen,
And sang to the music merry and
quick, Of FINKLE and LYON'S machine.
My work is almost done,
Before I have scarcely begun !
Oh! shame on the girls, I say,
Who now would their duty shirk,
And waste their time in dressing
If THIS is needle work!
How the magic needle flies!
I can scarce believe my eyes !
Seam, and gusset, and band,óBand, and gusset, and seam,óI really could almost
work asleep, And sew away in my dream!
See, it sews whatever you choose,
From the finest piece of tender
To a cloak or a pair of shoes!
ClickóclickóclickóAs I watch the merry thing
In fancy oft, within my sight,
To life it seems to spring !
"Oh! men with sisters dear!
Oh! men with mothers and wives!
How should you bless the men who
Gladden our precious lives!
Whose genius can make home so
Who chase our cares away
By making woman's duties light,
And turning toil to play!
" Then goóat onceóand get
A machine exactly like mine ;
Others are good, but above them all FINKLE AND LYON'S shine;
Buy at 538 BROADWAY,
And you'll get one there so nice,
That many a long long day to come You'll be glad of my advice."
