The address of the slave has hardly its

And hide thy pale but faithful ray,

For night; I daro not walk at noon,
Nor dare I trust the faithless moon
Nor faithless man, whose burning luft
For gold hath riveted my chain,
Nor other leader can I (rust
But thee of even the stirry train;
For all the host around thee burning,
Like faithless man, keep turning, turning.

.. Star of the North, I look to thee
While on 1 press; for well I know
Thy light and truth shall set me free:
Thy light, that no poor slave deceweth;
Thy truth, that all my soul bclieveth.
They of the Eist beheld the star
That over Bethlehem's manger glowed;
With joy they hailed it from afar,
And followed where it marked the road,
Till where its raya directly fell,
They found the Hope of Israel.

The Star that aets man free from sin! .
Star of the North! thou art to us .
Who're slaves because we wear a akin

Thou art to ua a holy thing.
And we are wise to follow thee!
I trust thy steady light alone. ,
6tar of the North! thou seem'st to me -
To bum before the Almighty's throne,
To guide me through these forest dim ,
'And vasi, to liberty and HIM.
Thy beam is on the glossy breast
Of the atill spring upon whose brink
I lay my wrary limbs to rest,
And bow my parching lips to drink.
Guide of the fricmlit negro' way,
I bles thee for thi quiet ray!

I nestled, when tha Driver' horn
Called to the field, in lengthening lines,
' My follow, at tl.a b.-eak of morn.
And thero I lay till thy sweet fuce . ;
Looked down upon my "hiding place."

For enelter from the heat of noon,
And where, while others toiled, I slept,

As ita stalks felt the night wind free,

THE SLAVEHOLDER'S ADDRESS TO
THE NORTH STAR.
Sta of the North! Thou art not bigger
Than is th diamond in my ring;
Yet. every bhek, star-gazing nigger
Looks at then, as at some great thing!
Yes, gizes at thee, till the lazy
And thankless rascal is lulf crazy.
Some Quaker scoundrel mtut hive told e'm.
That, if they tike their flight tow'rd thee,
They'll get where "m issi" cinnot hold e'm,
And therefor to the North they flee.

Altho' I've never seen thee, yet,
When to the hath thy sisters beckon,

In our hot nights, thy finger' tip.

When he is more than "half seas over."
But while Ham' seed our land to bless,

For thy bright eve and steady habits.

Or take a bout with reeling Jove!

PREACHING AND PRACTICE.
Sambo was claimed as a slave, and took
an active part in uno of the insurrections
made in South Carolina, about fifty years
go; but was, after a desperate effort, over
came and seized aa a prisoner. He, with
five others, was condemned to be hung; but
1 10 nig'it bi l'urc his execution he rtse upon
hia keepe-a-, despatched them at once and
escaped for life. They bent their course to
wards the north-western part of the State,
penetrated the mountain region, and select
ed a beautiful vale, high up the mountain,
for their future residence. Here was wild
game enough, and there was little prospect
tnat any winte man woum scale the moun
tain peaks and find them enrolled among the
clouda. , . ,.
After clearing away the wood and prepar
ing their cabins, they decided that man iwu 'd
not live alone, and that they would go in quest
oi neipmneis tor tnemseives. They rest lv
ed to make a desperate effort to find, recov
er, and take away, the wive and children
fiOiu whom they had been driven. They

famalo ia the uwunlaio wait joyful iht,
and bailed with much delight. Soon after,
Sambo, with his two Companions, roide a
descent into North Carolina, bun' about the
plantation, and at length returned with foot
horses, well ladened, three females, and one
young man, who had joined them. On his
way, Sambo had visited a nail band of In
dians, Entered into a friendly connection
with them, anJ they agreed to take such
fur and game a ho hid to spare, and to
c irry them to mirket among the whites.
The plantation being now so happily com
menced, nil agreed that Samho should be
king, and that the law should be respected
by, all. Hi first ,law was, "One nertun
ihnll not iit.ttri awlh-ri but tich ihill love
his neighbor. ' 2J. ' The life, liherty, and

low country may, they and their children, be
held at tlnoet." In a few weeks the horses
were taken to the Indians, nnd exchanged
for four whitest who were, according to law.
held as slaves, and forbidden to piss certain
boundaries under death. All thing now
went on pleasantly in the colony lands
were cleared, and various productions raised,
while the forest furnished abundance. (Oc
casionally some of the party stole down into
the settlements, seized whit thry wanted,
and brought back some of their own color
for settlers, or white children for slaves.
Thus their society rrraduallv increased, and
those who had been slaves tisted the sweets
of liberty. Sambo now dashed for a wife,
and after a few weeks returned from V irgin
ia with a young lady, the daughter of a
planter, who was recognized as queen by the
colony. The next year an event occurred
which produced great excitement among the
Carolinians. A yjung clergyman, wiih his
wna.were visiting in one or the middle conn
ties of the State, when they suddenly disip
peared, and no trace of them could be found,
Sambo had seized them and carried them to
the mountains. The law was road, and he
was required to conform strictly to it. This
was a hard saying, but what could he reply!
He had always maintained that "slavery
was not a monl evil that it was clearly
sanctioned in the Bible that good men
might, under the smction of law compel
their poor neighbors to labor f.ir their b ."nu
ll t, an.I tint servants aro b aun.l to oht'y their
masters in all things." And sa thoroughly
was he confirmed in these sentiments, that
he bad purchased a gang of slaves and
carried his sentiments into practice
Why, then, should he not be a slave to
Sambo and quietly submit to th estab
lished law! A hard question. Why
should not Bible institutions be kept up
among the mountains as well as on the low
lands! Why should not he be constrained
to serve master Samho, even as Sambo's
brethren were compelled to labor on his plan-
tation! Revolving such questions in his mind
he and his wile retired to the cabin assign'
ed them. How much rest they got 1 know
not, but one thing is certain, they were fully
convinced th it the state of slavery is not a
very pleasant state for the slave. The morn
ing came, and the slave were called up and
their tisks assigned them. 1 his was a new
position for Mr. Fuller and his wife to occu
py. He ventured to remonstrate; but Sam
bo answered, in V father was stolen, and you.
knowing the fact, purchased him my mo

servant, oucu a uay .nr. runcranu ins wue
had never seen! Weary and sad they re..
turned to their cabin to ponder and weep.
I he next morning Saiuoo addressing them
said, you have for one day seen what field
service is; now 1 appoint VJu, Mr, r uller,
chaplain and teacher of our settlement, and
your wife I assign a house servant to the
queen; and I expect you will both show all
good cdelity in your respective stations.
Under Samho 8 government there were no
filters, whips or tortures. All were com
fortably led and clothed. Improvements
were exteude i, domestic animals introduced
and there was much harmony there; but sla.
very was there also; in its mildest form in'
deed but it was slavery. After the lapse
ot years It was reported that one ot the
slaves was missing, and all efforts to find
him wore vain. He was gone, and would
betray them to the whites. About one week
after the escape of the white, a friendly In.
dian informed Sambo that a body of whites
had assembled and meant to attack him.
The next day the whole population were as
sembled; all reolved to resist, and all
methods of defence were adopted. Trees
and brushwood were thrown into the gorge.
through which the enemy must approach
and masses of stone were collected on the
precipice by which they must pass. Sambo,
with twenty faithful followers, were at their
post at the dawn of day. The trampling of
horses was heard the enemy, burning with
fury, entered the gorge, were soon arrested
by the trees and brush," huddled together,
and were at once crushed under rocks which
were rolled down the precipice. Half were
destroyed by the first avalanche. Retreat or
death was the only alternative. Samho had iri-
urn plied. Fifty of his enemies were dead
but ul ,s, lie was ruined. He ut once saw
his true situation, and knew that the whole
country would rise up as a flood and over
whelm him. In I lie deepest anguish lie ns
sembled all his people, laid the subject fair
ly before them, gave the slaves liberty to go
witn mm, or return to their own people,
The next day he and his people were seen
wending their way up thu lufty peak that
sneiiereo at the west their beautitul valiey,
They reached the summit and lodged then
that night. The mornint; rise, and for tho
last time they saw their loved homes wrapt
in . flames. A dark cloud rolled over the
niountiin. . Sambo and his companion were
seen no more. " Tradition tells not whether

Long years have since passed away.
Whito hairs have thickened around these
temples, then so rudely nnd so young, but 1
have never forgotten the last word of that
young man. And I have never violated that
pledge. When the tempter has olTered to
me the sparkling goblet, the words of th
young nrm have seemed to sound ill my ear,
again. Did mrri' t'ury.
Libkrtt. The "Razor Stro Maw."
The "Razor Strop Man" says: "When first
1 got acquainted with- strong drink, it prom
ised to do a great many things for inc. It
promised liberty and I got liberty. 1 had
the liherty to see my toes poke out of my
boots thu water had tho liberty to go in at
the toes and go out at the heels my knera
had the liherty to comn out of mv pants
my elbows h d liherty ticome out of my coat
I had the liherty to lift the crown of my
hat and scrntch my ho-ud without taking my
hit oil". Net only liherty I got, but I got,
music. When 1 walked .along on a windy
d.av, the crown of
My hat would go flipperty flap;
And tho wind whistle "how do you do."
Oh yo who thick uf death, and mourn fur death
Why do ye raise a phiinlurn ofyour we-knesa?
And then shriek loud tu see what you bav
tnad i" i
There i no Death lo those who know of Life.
No Time lo those who tee Elurnity.
