wners in adopting their entitles, as they call their surnames, but always that of some former master, and they go as far back as possible. It was the name of the actual owner that distinguished them in slavery, and I suppose they wish to throw off that badge of servitude. Then, too, they have their notions of family pride. All these changes are very sad to me, in spite of their comic side. There will soon be no more old mammies and daddies, no more old uncles and aunties. Instead of maum Judy and uncle Jacob, we shall have our Mrs. Ampey Tatoms, and our Mr. Lewis Williamses. The sweet ties that bound our old family servants to us will be broken and replaced with envy and ill-will. I am determined it shall not be so with ours, unless they do something to forfeit my respect. Father befriends his men in every possible way. When they fail to get work elsewhere, he tells them they can always come to him and he will give them food and shelter till they can do better. He tries to fi
Was wounded often, many a day; He did not wish to be a soldier, He only wanted to be free-- They only loaded him with irons, Or lashed him to a tree. Before him once, in line of battle, He saw our fine young master Jim, Then dropped poor Phil his Yankee musket, He could not, would not, fire on him; For they had played, been raised together, Young master Jim had cried for Phil-- The Yankees gave the onward order, But my poor boy stood still. And then his more than cruel masters, White men, with hearts and deeds all black, Struck him down with gun and sabre, And left him dying on their track. O missus! my old heart is broken, My lot all grief and pain has been; For little Judy, too, is ruined, In their dark camps of sin. O Massa William! see me kneeling, O Missus! say one word for me! You'll let me stay? Oh! thank you massa; Now I'm happy! now I'm free! I've seen enough of Yankee freedom, I've had enough of Yankee love! As they have treated the poor negro, Be't done to them above.

L. The brutality of Punch and Judy. Whenever the season of picnics and children's excursions draws near, I feel disposed to renew my protest against a performan which has in some inexplicable way crept into decent society. I mean Punch and Judy. It is an exhibition only fitted to be shown, as it seems to me, before the chiders and executions from the Police Gazette; and yet the exhibition of Punch and Judy offers this and nothing more, and does it in the more pernicious form of action in the slumbers that follow. I do not wish to put all the blame of Punch and Judy on our English ancestors, for it is much older than they. The very figure of ther it excites are at least innocent. But our ordinary performances of Punch and Judy exhibit nobody so alive and so harmless as a real puppy; it is one dreary seriesther it be licentiousness, as on the French stage, or brutality, as in Punch and Judy, involves a deeper danger — that such things may not only grow familiar as a spe

better discipline or fight more obstinately and bravely than those men under their heroic old general. As we approached the home of Mr. Joseph B. Wilson, of Amelia county, we halted and formed lines in the open fields surrounding his house, and the writer, who knew him and his family well and had often shared their hospitality, rode up to the house and warned them to seek safety in the cellar, as we would attempt to check the enemy there. Whilst conversing with Mr. Wilson, his little girl, Judy, ran up and threw her arms around my neck, exclaiming, Oh, don't let the Yankees come! I never wished so heartily that I had been a host within myself. I had not the heart to tell her that we could only keep those people back for a little while and then we must retreat. So I gently disengaged the child's arms, and told her we would try, but she must make haste and hide, for we would soon be fighting all around her house. Thus reassured, she quickly dried her tears, and ran back into th

ful colors. The great Ipswich fright. The Frere into the dark gazed forth; The sounds went onward towards the north; The murmur of tongues, the tramp and tread Of a mighty army to battle led. Ballad of the Cid. Life's tragedy and comedy are never far apart. The ludicrous and the sublime, the grotesque and the pathetic, jostle each other on the stage; the jester, with his cap and bells, struts alongside of the hero; the lord mayor's pageant loses itself in the mob around Punch and Judy; the pomp and circumstance of war become mirth-provoking in a militia muster; and the majesty of the law is ridiculous in the mock dignity of a justice's court. The laughing philosopher of old looked on one side of life and his weeping contemporary on the other; but he who has an eye to both must often experience that contrariety of feeling which Sterne compares to the contest in the moist eyelids of an April morning, whether to laugh or cry. The circumstance we are about to relate may se

Mayor's Court. --His Honor had a budget of "odds and ends" before him on Saturday last, but no case of special importance was brought to light. We notice briefly what occurred: James Chandler, for being drunk and disorderly in the street, was held to bail. Judy, a slave, for using insolent and provoking language to a white person, was punished. Wm. Haines, charged with stealing a pair of pants from Edward Barr, is to be heard hereafter. Emma, slave to Miss A. T. Hughes, charged with stealing a lot of trinkets, and Susan Hill and Mary Haines, for receiving the same, knowing them to be stolen, were ordered to be punished. John West, a free boy, for stealing $60 in money from M. Myer, was ordered ten lashes. From this decision his counsel took an appeal to the Hustings Court. William Krack alias Jim Krack, charged with stealing a bolt of cotton cloth from E. Goldsmith, and a pair of pants from David Barr, will be heard for the offence hereafter.
have been back in his loving arms. But Jonathan is not of the Greeks.--He is descended from John, surnamed Bull. And John is not a man to be trifid with in marital relations. When his wife or his donkey kicks up, he wallops 'em. Punch and Judy represent the standard of British sentiment on that interesting subject. There is not as popular an exhibition in all the streets of London as that merry villain, Punch.--Men of all grades gather at the sound of Punch's trumpet, but rarely women. The best of all jokes in the world is the terrific cudgeling which the mirthful tyrant administers to the luckless Judy and her child. It is Punch and Judy, and not Menelaus and Helen, that represent the Anglo-American idea of political wedlock. We have never been able to appreciate, however, the choice analogy of the Union to man and wife, the North being the man. When did the South accept the position of a "minister angel" to the North; when promise to endow it with sovereignty and cha
