in all things like a grave, Where we no better privileges have Than dead men; nor so good. We were next taken to Mobile, Alabama. On our way thither, I conversed with a number of Southrons, among whom was an insignificant personage from South Carolina. He complained because their officers were not allowed to have their servants with them. He called it one of the most inhuman deprivations imaginable! Sir, said I, we have been treated like beasts and half-starved here on your southern soil; what do you think of that? O, he replied, that's all right enough for you ‘uns; but we belong to the first families of South Carolina! Your logic is vain, sir, for we of the free North recognize no officer in the army as made of better stuff than the least drummer-boy in the service. Your first families were the prime movers in this rebellion, being the degenerate descendants of bankrupt royalists and luckless adventurers. The truth cut him severely, and he began to curse the mudsill

I asked, in stem tones. He's talking to them niggers, and he shall hang for it, before he leaves the place. Just then, one of our number said sarcastically: Ah, now, my dear old gentleman, you are altogether mistaken. He's not talking to your children, but your dog!
