I am not without high precedent for my profanity. When the Greek army, marched upon Troy (Vide Homer's Iliad) one of their most valuable Generals, Thersltcs, gained his great aud only He did it reputation by swearing, by being careful never to damn anybody, or anything that ought not to have been damned. Thoro Is only ono man alluded to In tho Old Testament that I would not kick out of my house. His name member Lot's wife 'and "Brick" is Shlmel, aud his only distinction is Pomeroy!

Old Pat was an Irlshmau and was not good at spelling. For years after the war, "Brick" Pomcroy, published tho "La Crosse Democrut." It got to be ono of the most popular papers in America, and tho only feature of any Interest about his paper was that every Issue of It damned old Ben Butler, who called was, by all Southerners, Butler, and by them, gen"Beast" erally supposed to bo tho "beast" alluded to In the Apocalipso. By all Southern Christians thoro was a general feeling that old Ben ought to bo damned.and what "Brick" said about him was regarded as "au earnest of bettor things to come," aud Brick amassed slinolcoivs galoro.

But in any bovine discussion this same woman will say "cow" in the feminine gender and carefully refrain.. from saying "bull." Of course such women ought to say that in the late Venezuelan affair "Undo Sam John Cow." - I have a fine red polled Holstien bull named "Willie Breckinridge." It's nip and tuck between the bull and my Cousin Willie as to which has the finer voice. The bull cannot say "water" like Willie can, and as that woman said she would "give a hundred dollars to say", as Willie does, but the bull has a voice that would make him and me a fortuno, if ho were trained to sing in opera, or better, in a religious cantata, called the "Bulls of Basham," gotEvery ten up specially for him. nigger on the farm calls that bull "that animal." Would it be proper to speak of the wife of Ole Bull, the great violinist, as Mrs. Ole Cow, and their children as "the calves," instead of "the kids," as is generally done; and is the calf of a man's leg a bull calf, and the call of a woman's leg a heifer calf, or cow calf, according as the woman is a maid or matron? If it be regarded as any reflection on Solomon's mother to call him what I did commonly printed "s of a b ," by these immaculate journalists, I simply call your attention to the fact that Solomon's mother was Bathsheba, who took a bath in a new wash tub, when she knew David was looking at her through a pine-knhole, whilo was taking a and then helped old Davy kill her husband to get to marry Dave.

Now, do you not think that the theory there stated is a llttlo broad, if taken without qualification, and is it not stated with such clearness and circumstantially that it hardly ad mlts any saving qualification, unless wo wrest tho meaning from tho plainest kind of phrasing?
