, childish recollection of her next book, The coronal, published in 1833, which was of rather a fugitive description. The same year brought her to one of those bold steps which made successive eras in her literary life, the publication of her Appeal for that Class of Americans called Africans. The name was rather cumbrous, like all attempts to include an epigram in a title-page,--but the theme and the word Appeal were enough. It was under the form of an Appeal that the colored man, Alexander Walker, had thrown a firebrand into Southern society which had been followed by Nat Turner's insurrection; and now a literary lady, amid the cultivated circles of Boston, dared also to appeal. Only two years before (1831) Garrison had begun the Liberator, and only two years later (1835) he was destined to be dragged through Boston streeets, with a rope round his neck, by gentlemen of property and standing, as the newspapers said next day. It was just at the most dangerous moment of the risin

It embraced numerous representatives of all parties, and was a very enthusiastic affair. The ruling spirit was the gallant Gladden, of your State, and the best speech was made by Alexander Walker, of the Delta newspaper. An Association was formed, and its Constitution was numerously signed. One of the features of the plan was the raising of a corps of Minute Men, who are pledged to hold themselves in readiness to defend the South in its action, whenever authoritatively decided upon. Meantime we are having rather tight times here. One of our heaviest mercantile houses, that of Messrs. Fellowes & Co., has suspended payment, with liabilities to the figure of $4,500,000, and
ped and retained the name of the stolen establishment. The pleasure and the profit of the crime would have been sadly impaired had the means been wanting to add falsehood to robbery. Hence it is not astonishing that the Northern papers, gifted with an unparalleled fecundity of mendacity, should appeal to the Delta as an accession to their cause, and pretend to regard its simulated conversion as an evidence of rejuvenated Unionism in Louisiana. I may be pardoned for stating here that, of the proprietors and recent editors of the Delta, Mr. Henry J. Leroy, business manager, is now with Gen. Beauregard; Mr. D. C. Jenkins, to whose fertile and elegant pen the Delta owed so much of its reputation, is, I believe, with Gen. Van-Dorn; Mr. Alexander Walker, whom I left in charge of the paper, and who is so well known to newspaper readers, was elected by the Yankees, and the undersigned is now serving in this army.

robbery Mrs. Wilson noticed her in the hotel parlor and asked her business. The girl replied that she was there to see an acquaintance, and Mrs. W. left her. Some short time after, Mrs. W. locked her room and took a walk. In her absence the girl entered the chamber, completed the robbery, and made her escape. On Thursday officer Kelly was informed of the robbery, and having reasons to suspect the prisoner, took her into custody. She then confessed the theft, and going with him to Mr. Alexander Walker's kitchen, on Chimborazo Hill, made his servant woman, Ann, deliver up a locket and chain that she had given her.--From there she went to her mother's residence, on Broad street, where she had left a portion of the articles, which were also recovered. Taking the officer to Moses Pike's, on Main street, the remainder of the jewelry was found, a portion having been secreted under the steps in the back yard, and a chain had been given to one of Pike's daughters. The articles which the
