The slaves who run away from their masters in Virginia, are set to work at once by Gen. Butler, and made to keep at it, much to their annoyance. One of them having been put to it rather strong, said, “Golly, Massa Butler, dis nigger never had to work so hard before; guess dis chile will secede once moah.” --Ohio Statesman, Aug. 2.
