how or other, and got the building; but then we didn't get the right of choosing our own minister, as we expected. Does your white minister always preach to suit the slaveholders? Yes, sir, he said, always. He wouldn't be allowed to preach at all if he didn't. How do Unto others, etc., Fared. The wife of the storekeeper hitherto had taken no part in the conversation. She interrupted her husband, and told me the history of a Northern preacher at present officiating in the city of New York, who was forced to leave Richmond because he once selected as a text, Do unto others as ye would that others should do unto you. He is devotedly loved by the colored people of the city, and has cause to be proud of the hatred of the traffickers in human kind. When this clergyman first came to Richmond, he said nothing offensive to the human-property-holders. He paid a visit to New England, and came back what hitherto he had only nominally been — a Christian minister. The first text

orthern States with but one constable, and he engaged occasionally only in performing his official duties! Who pays the expenses of this guard — the salaries of the men, and for the purchase money, the feed and accoutrements of the horses? Chiefly, the non-slaveholding population. Let the Democratic supporters of the constitutional crime of American slavery reflect on this unpalatable fact! In all slaveholding cities — excepting the great seaports, and St. Louis, Louisville and Baltimore, which are practically free — the lawyers form the richest and most influential class. Let the people think of this fact; let them remember too, that lawyers are the leeches of the body politic. Vii. South Carolina.

I have visited the Slave States several times-thrice on an anti-slavery errand. First, in 1854. I sailed to Richmond, Virginia, from New York city; travelled by railroad to Wilmington, North Carolina; and from that port by sea to the city of Charleston. I remained there two weeks-during the session of the Southern Commercial Convention. I then sailed to Savannah, where I resided three months, when I returned direct to New York city.

your arm inside of a jug handle. The advice was more especially addressed to the young lady spectators. By a bold license of speech, which men of genius are privileged to employ, the jug-handle of this more than celestial moral indicated the arm of every young man who would not, at his clerical command, sign the temperance, or rather the total abstinence pledge. The parson introduced me to a Southern editor, whose style of thought and conversation greatly amused me. He was from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Full to overflowing, was the Tennessee journalist, of loyalty to slavery (which, down South, they often euphonize as the South! ), and loyalty to venerable rye; and of the most friendly feelings, too, toward Parson Brownlow, Virginia short-cut, and the Honorable Mr. Jones, his representative in Congress. He praised Mr. Jones first and foremost: Jones was bound to be President, he said, and had come down here (but I mustn't tell nary one about it) to put himself right with the Sout

I have the talent of silence, the talent of discreet speech — and also — and I use it quite as often as the others — the talent and virtue of indiscreetness. The friend of the slave needs all three! I found that the slaves of Georgia were without hope — passively resigned. It was requisite, in the first place, to arouse their hope. To effect that result, it was indispensably necessary to let them know of the anti-slavery battle waging throughout the Union--of which, unfor

She had had eleven children, but-- I's only three I kin see now, massa, she added, mournfully. Have any of your children been sold? I inquired. Yes, she said, sobbing, the tears beginning to trinkle down her furrowed cheeks, three on ‘em. Two boys were sold down South--I don't know where they is; and my oldest son was sold to Texas three years since. There was talk about him coming back, but it's bin talked about too-oo-oo --her sobs interrupted her speech for a few seconds--too-oo-oo long to be true, I's afeerd. Her maternal affections were strongly moved; I knew she would answer any questions now. It must have been very hard with you to part with your boys; almost as hard as when your other children died?

Long after this sentence was spoken, I found a world of sad histories in this accidental utterance. Raised — and growed! Is he a white man?
