'Twas a man wrapped In an ample cloak,
Poetic in his mien,
That went into the office of
An English magazine.
He gave unto the editor
A paper closely writ:
"I would onto your Judgment, sir,
A poemlet submit;
Pray read it carefully and say
- What that you think of It"
Slowly the editor read It through;
On his brow an angry flush
There came, as he soliloquized
About "hogwash," "rot1' and "slush."
And he gave back the manuscript
Unto the bard, and said:
"That ballad is the very worst
That I have ever read.
"If I such trash as that should dare
Print In my magazine,
Then men would call me a three-ply ass
And they would be-right, I ween.
"So, sirrah, take thee a Stout sawhorse,
Thereto a bucksaw good;
Thy poesy it is n. g.,
Thy line Is sawing wood."
When that the poet heard these words
He 'gun to fume and fidget.
And he said unto the editor,
"Thou art a howling idjet"
"Read o'er that ballad again, sirrah,
Read o'er that ballad again,
And then thy candid opinion give
My name is Alfred Ten . '
"The heaven you say!" cried the editor,
Astonished; then he said,
"That poem Is the finest thing
That I have ever read.
"It shall appear this very month,"
And, kneeling on the ground,
He gave the Laureate a check

To the Editor o f the News and Cou
rier: Either you, or some personal
friend unknown to me, has sent me a
corjv of vour narjer of April 28. contain
ing the notice of the death of the Hon.
James Simons, with your editorial no
tice of his life and character.
I am pleased to realize that in his life
time he construed me as one of his ad
mirers and friends, and now that he has
gone from earth I beg to be construed
as uniting with you in mourning his
death, and pointing to his many virtues
as worthy the imitation of the growing
Mv annnaintance with him beean in
1842, and has been kept up by letters
and personal intercourse ever since. He
always seemed to me the type of an ac
complished gentleman, handsome m
person, dignihed in manners, and classi
cal in letters and conversation. His
death is not only a loss to the commu
nity in which he passea nis wnoie lite,
but to the country at large: for I have
reason to believe that his thoughts and
feelings were not limited to Charleston
Neck, but reached the uttermost boun
daries of this great country and the
As you well describe, he inherited a
name associated with the events which
brought forth a new nation, maintained
its honor and dignity to the end, and
has left a family to prolong it to the
end of time.
I beer vou will4 convey to his widow
and children the knowledge that I, in
common with many who reside beyond
the boundaries of his State, knew Gen.
Simons, respected him. yea, loved him
as strangers to his household might,
and will ever rejoice to hear or new
honors gained by those to whom he con
signed so iair a tame.
