Wouldn't stay whipped.

--The brave Northern troops who were at the battle of Manassa, but who falled, to see the fight which came off there, became very brave on their return home. We hear of them destroying printing offices, mobbing editors, tarring and feathering them and riding them on a rail, all because they opposed and condemned a war in which these brave solitier boys volunteered to fight, but didn't do it. They are like the chap out West, who, getting badly whipped in town, swore he wouldn't stay wipped, and went home and lammed his wife. Brave boys, them Yankees!-- True Delca.
