--We clip the following from the Evansville (Ia.) Journal of the 6th, and give it as a specimen:

’ May he be set afloat in an open boat without rudder or compass; may that boat and contents be swallowed by a shark, and the shark swallowed by a whales, that whale in the devil's belly, and the devil in hell, the door locked and key lost — and further — may he be chained in the southwest corner of hell, a northeast wind blow ashes in his eyes to all eternity, G — d d-- him.
