IN A QUANDARY.
Our [risibles?] have been considerably exercised in hearing a few aspirants – few in fact – who have become impatient for the loaves and fishes, trumping up excuses for eschewing all their former notions of governmental policy. Without the honesty to come out like men and tell what they want, they affect to see ahead great disasters to befall our glorious country. But we have no fears – BELL and EVERETT will take the reigns of government the 4th of March, and after hanging a few of the rebels North and South, peace will be restored. But if any of those who have hitherto acted with us politically think proper to go off now either to Douglas and Johnson or to Breckenridge and Lane, let them go, and we shall feel as the man did who said to his sympathizers when his wife ran away from him, “don’t pity me till she comes back again.”
