They were seen with their triinks in their laps eating their provisions by the way like a family of emigranta wending their way to tlieir log cabins. Af'ter gormandizing on the posteriora of a dead hog they threw a part of a kam and a loaf of bread to the dogs but forsooth the doga tiaving Democratie owners refused to eat the offals of eatables which had been in the clutchea of modern pseudo whige.
