" Why are we not all Tammany men ?" asks the " Pall Mall Gazette" of 28tih March. " Tammany is evidently good for the diges- tion, If not for the government, of Greater New York. Next month, the anniversary of 'tihe 'birth of Jefferson, one of tile great Republican heroes of the 'American Inde- pendence time, is to be kept in New York by BOBS Croker and 1600 other people. They will consumo 50 oxen, 250 spring lambs, 10 loads of strawberries, asparagus, and other vegetables, 25 turtles. 2500 crabs, 2400. lobsters, 1C00 canvas-back ducks and pigeons, 50. barrels of oysters, 5000 bottles of Champagne, SOO pints of coffee, and other details. After Willoh thoy will return to governing. Verily, Tam- many must have a good digestion, but not better than New York's which has done its best to dC-gost Tammany."
