ORNITHOLOGY.

A mild election-year cartoon portraying Whig presidential candidate Winfield Scott (left) as a turkey and Democrat Franklin Pierce (right) as a gamecock. The two face each other from opposite sides of "Mason & Dixon's Line." Scott orders Pierce to "Get out the way fellow! I want the whole of the road!" Pierce crows back, "Cock a doodle doo----ooo! Don't you wish you may get it! But you can't get over this line." Scott's chances in the South were considered poor because of his association with antislavery interests.
