  [THE GERM OF SECCESSION.]  
 
 
Yankee Notions
 
January 01, 1862
   
 
  But for this “chattel,” the germ of secession Had ne'er taken root in a southern possession; He's been frequently likened to “just so much cash,” But he's more like the eye placed just under the lash; He's a queer, jolly soul, this same “nig” of the South, With his billiard ball heel and his huge lip and mouth, And although he's indulged in both breakdown and jig, The music of “cat” doth oft break down the nig.
