, however, but another Slave State--I endeavored to put a slaveholder's post-mortem praises into rhyme — to write a requiem for a valued or valuable slave. Here it is: I. Haste! bury her under the meadow's green lea, My faithful old black woman Sue; There never was negro more useful than she, There never was servant more true; Ah! never again will a slaveholder own A darkey so honest as she who has gone. Gone! gone! gone! Gone to her rest in the skies! Gone! gone! gone! Gone to her rest t Saxons should own The offspring of Canaan — like her who has gone. Gone! gone! gone! Gone to her home in the skies! Gone! gone! gone! Gone to her home in the skies. V. Haste! bury her under the meadow's green lea, My faithful old black woman Sue; I'll pray to the Lord for another like she, As dutiful, fruitful, and true! Yet I fear me that never again shall I own A darkey so “likely” as her who has gone! Gone! gone! gone Gone to her rest in the skies! Gone! gone! gone! Gone to her rest

Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Olde Cambridge, Chapter 2: old Cambridge in three literary epochs (search)
ne of those gifted eccentrics who gravitated to Cambridge in earlier days, perhaps more freely than now. He had known extreme poverty, and used to tell the story of his mother and himself walking the streets of a city in central New York and spending their last half-dollar on a copy of Spenser's Faerie Queene, instead of a dinner. He was a man of wide reading, great memory, and great inventive power; his favorite work in embryo being a tale which was to occupy twelve volumes each as large as Sue's Wandering Jew, then widely read. Two of these volumes were to contain an incidental summary of the history of the world, told by a heavenly spirit to a man wandering among the Mountains of the Moon in Africa. He came to Cambridge under Lowell's patronage and secured a place in the post-office at a salary of two hundred dollars, on which modest income he married a maiden as poor as himself, who brought him as a dowry two eagles,--formidable pets,--whose butcher's bills made great inroads

they were arranged in a line before my new acquaintance, the purchaser. He fixed his eyes on Sue, a black marble statue, aged seven. Nothing could have been kinder than Mr.——'s manner in addresnia yesterday, and have n't learnt how to treat gentlemen yet (with an emphasis). Poor little Sue! The purchaser next turned to Martha, the elder sister, a bright Topsy-looking thing. What felt the muscles of her arm, and questioned her a little. Her price was 700 dollars, and little Sue's 450 dollars. Well, Martha, said he at last, would n't you like to go with me and have a plergain was finally struck for Martha, quite to Mr. Thompson's chagrin, who evidently hoped to sell Sue, and would, no doubt, have done so, but for her ignorance how to treat gentlemen. Girl is soustomers. So ended the bargain, and I presently took my leave. I had one last glance at little Sue. It is not long since I set foot on the floating wreck of an unknown vessel at sea, and then left

arked with his initials, and his correspondence with friends reveals his authorship of some briefer notices. The following are identified as written by him:— Are Challenges to Jurors in Massachusetts determinable by Triors? Oct., 1834, Vol. XII. pp. 330-340.—an article which treats not only the particular point, but the broader question, to what extent the American colonists adopted the common law of England; review of Howe's Practice; Oct., 1834, Vol. XII. pp. 554-567. Right to Sue the United States, Jan., 1835, Vol. XIII. pp. 34-39.— suggested probably by the private claim which, as a friendly act, he promoted on his visit to Washington in 1834; Sketch of the Law School at Cambridge, Jan., 1835, Vol. XIII. pp. 107-130.—taking for its text Professor Greenleaf's inaugural discourse, and giving a history of the school, with a tribute to Nathan Dane, a living benefactor; Mr. Dane, author of An Abridgment and Digest of American Law, and framer of the celebrated

early to the time of her embarkation for her native land in 1850. During the twenty months of her connection with the Tribune, she wrote, on an average, three articles a week. Many of them were long and elaborate, extending, in several instances, to three and four columns; and, as they were Essays upon authors, rather than Reviews of Books, she indulged sparingly in extract. Among her literary articles, we observe essays upon Milton, Shelley, Carlyle, George Sand, the countess Hahn Hahn, Sue, Balzac, Charles Wesley, Longfellow, Richter, and other magnates. She wrote, also, a few musical and dramatic critiques. Among her general contributions, were essays upon the Rights, Wrongs, and Duties of Women, a defence of the Irish character, articles upon Christmas, New year's day, French Gayety, the Poor Man, the Rich Man, What fits a man to be a Voter —genial, fresh, and suggestive essays all. Her defence of the Irish character was very touching and just. Her essay on George Sand wa

hought she had been left at the foundling hospital, as not worth a parent's care, and that now, grown up, she was trying to prove at once her parentage and her charms by certificates which might be headed, Innocent Adultery, Celestial Crime, &c. The slight acquaintance I had with Hugo, and company, did not dispel these impressions. And I thought Chateaubriand (far too French for my taste also,) belonged to l'ancien regime, and that Beranger and Courier stood apart. Nodier, Paul de Kock, Sue, Jules Janin, I did not know, except through the absurd reports of English reviewers; Le Maistre and Lamennais, as little. But I have now got a peep at this galaxy. I begin to divine the meaning of St. Simonianism, Cousinism, and the movement which the same causes have produced in belles-lettres. I perceive that la jeune France is the legitimate, though far younger sister of Germany; taught by her, but not born of her, but of a common mother. I see, at least begin to see, what she has l

it was not so with her early friends; that she has chosen to buy a chateau in the region where she passed her childhood, and that the people there love and have always loved her dearly. She is now at the chateau, and, I begin to fear, will not come to town before I go. Since I came, I have read two charming stories recently written by her. Another longer one she has just sold to La Presse for fifteen thousand francs. She does not receive nearly as much for her writings as Balzac, Dumas, or Sue. She has a much greater influence than they, but a less circulation. She stays at the chateau, because the poor peopl there were suffering so much, and she could help them. She has subscribed twenty thousand francs for their relief, in the scarcity of the winter. It is a great deal to earn by one's pen: a novel of several volumes sold for only fifteen thousand francs, as I mentioned before. * * * At last, however, she came; and I went to see her at her house, Place d'orleans.

of the legislature the office of police magistrate was created and to this he was unanimously appointed by the board of trustees. Mr. Hook has been twice married, first on September 21, 1865, to Miss Susan M. Pou, who died January 27, 1891, and the second time to Miss R. E. Miller. He has five living children, all by his first wife. One son, John H. Hook, a graduate of Clemson college, is inspector in the navy department on the coast of Florida. The other children are: William N., H. Lula, Sue M., and Julia A. William N. is a student of Clemson college, in the class of 1899. Miss H. Lula is a teacher in Rockhill college.
