Childsburg (North Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 16
ead overseer Lincoln gave an order for 75,000 assistants to join him; for the purpose of whipping his Southern brethren into strict submission to his ill-gotten authority. This prospect of brethren shedding each others' blood was to much for Uncle Sam to bear, in his senility and imbecility, which had been annually increasing. He died the very day the bloody order was issued. "Requiescat in pace." It may be gratifying to the surviving friends of Uncle Sam to learn that the most of his Southern children have appointed the Hon. Jeff. Davis overseer, and declare their intention, with his assistance, to wrest the old family mansion from its present vulgar occupants; thoroughly cleanse, ventilate, fumigate, and repair it, ferret out the rate, stop up their holes, smoke out the bats, and thus restore it to the beauty and purity which it exhibited when it was occupied by George Washington, the first and best of Uncle Sam's overseers. B. Carolinensis. Hillsboro', May 17, 1861.

hal age, for he was born in 1787, or, as some think, on the 4th of July, 1776. The truth is, he never had a sound constitution. There were inherent elements of weakness and conflict in it. The Doctors, who met in 1787 to assist at his birth, saw this, and proposed various remedies to counteract the seeds of premature death. Some thought that he would die of plethora, others of inanition. The first recommended abstinence, a mild diet, and rigid adherence to a prescribed regimen. One Dr. Patrick Henry predicted that he would be very greedy, absorbing and consuming the substance of the land. Uncle Sam had a very large family of children, but it must be confessed that he was neither a judicious nor an impartial father. As a patriarch or head of a family, he used but little system. Sometimes he was too strict, at others, too lenient — to some he was lavish, to others niggardly; in short, too frequently he showed himself a step-father, rather than a natural father — consequently his

t upon the old gentleman's constitution, which, with an imprudence not uncommon with invalids, he sometimes entrusted to mere pretenders to the healing art, to quacks, in fact, who exhibited the most various and opposite remedies; yet each one claimed for his prescription the merit of being a specific. One treated him for weakness of the joints, another for congestion of the brain, and yet another for collapse. One stuffed, another depleted him, until the old man's constitution, like Sir John Suckling's ever-darned silk hose, was so tinkered and patched up that but little of its original stamen remained. Uncle Sam passed through many grand climacterics, none of which seemed to benefit him. The most important of these periodic changes was that of 1860, when he elected one Abraham Lincoln, a creature of his Northern children, to be overseer of his whole domain. This was a great insult and a great injury, for the said Abraham Lincoln was a great enemy of the Southern branch of the fa
negroes, and found that they could work the lands to the advantage of both. But Uncle Sam, under the dictation of his Northern children, resisted this natural, profitable and benevolent system of cultivation, excluded slaves from a part of the common land, attempted to drive them away from another, and actually went so far as to say that he would not allow them to be used on the old farms, which his Southern children had got, not from him, but by a fee simple title from their grandfather, John Bull. These domestic troubles had their logical effect upon the old gentleman's constitution, which, with an imprudence not uncommon with invalids, he sometimes entrusted to mere pretenders to the healing art, to quacks, in fact, who exhibited the most various and opposite remedies; yet each one claimed for his prescription the merit of being a specific.
