to the writer hereof as the lamp-posts in New York city, seventy or seventy-five years ago. It was one of the every-day allusions of boys, at that time, in all of their out-door sports. And no one ever heard of Dixie's land being other than Manhattan Island until recently, when it has been erroneously supposed to refer to the South, from its connection with pathetic negro allegory. When slavery existed in New York, one Dixy owned a large tract of land on Manhattan Island, and large numbers Manhattan Island, and large numbers of slaves. The increase of the slaves and the increase of the abolition sentiment caused an emigration of the slaves to more thorough and secure slave sections, and the negroes who were thus sent off (many being born there) naturally looked buck to their old homes, where they had lived in clover, with feelings of regret, as they could not imagine any place like Dixy's. Hence it became synonymous with an ideal locality combining ease, comfort, and material happiness of every description. In tho
Captain let, of the United States Navy, in command of the Vandalia, ordered to the East Indies, learning at the Cape of Good Hope that a rebel war had broken out, promptly decided to return home with his ship, where she and her services are wanted.

e negroes who were thus sent off (many being born there) naturally looked buck to their old homes, where they had lived in clover, with feelings of regret, as they could not imagine any place like Dixy's. Hence it became synonymous with an ideal locality combining ease, comfort, and material happiness of every description. In those days negro singing and minstrelsy were in their infancy, and any subject that could be wrought into a ballad was eagerly picked up; this was the case with Dixie. It originated in New York, and assumed the proportions of a song there. In its travels it has been enlarged, and has gathered moss; it has picked up a note here and there; a chorus has been added to it, and from an indistinct chant of two or three notes, it has become an elaborate melody; but the fact that it is not a Southern song cannot be rubbed out; the fallacy is so popular to the contrary, that I have thus been at pains to state the real origin of it.
