Some persons are very skeptical whenever
any allusion is ninth) to Iho cruel treatment
of slaves. We are awnro that many slave
owners nre kind-hearled nml amiable in the

the strongest attachment for then). Al tho

inviii lately cruel, ami that their tyranny is
practiced upon slaves in n maimer thai it in

A few days sgn, in conversation with a gen

from the southwestern part ol our country,
where he has resided for many years, ho sla
ted that Mr. , with whom bo was well
acquainted, lived four miles from him, and
bis treatment of bis slaves was cruel in the
extreme. One tiny bo returned to his home
niter nn absence of several days, and found
thnt n slave woman bad got access lo a small
amount of butter, which she scraped from n
kettle, fiir her own use. For this ho became
piirnged, gave Iho poor woman liliy lashes,
nn I then iulbriuril her that llinse were only
half that she was to receive ! In fear of more
punishment she w andered off from the house,
nml became, nt length so swiD-fonted lluit
she would lenp a li-nco wilh llin ngility of a
frighted animal. So fearful bud sbu become
of her owner, that bho was conslunlly in iho
habit of turning her head to the right nml
led, ns if nntif ipnting danger. One night,
driven by starvation, that slave, said our
Cinislinn brother, en mo lo my house for
food. Of course, snid he, I gave her ull she
could cat, nml permitted her lo sleep in my
house thai night. The next day, the woman
seeing her master coming toward the bouse,
rushed nut and bid herself among the high
corn. When lite owner wns informed by
the gentleman thnt he hnd given food lo bis
slave, and would always do ro, if bo found
her Millcring be becnine so angry ns lo lose
nil control! of himself, end nbiisi-d him by

this slnve-owuer remaiked, "When I die, I
fenr I shall go lo bell, and be driven there
by my own slaves!"
The gciillcmnn to whom wc have alluded,
recently arrived in this city, lie states thai
while on tho Mississippi river, n week or two
ago, in iho steamer , two fiirmen, who
were slaves, had sonic nngry words together,
which called down the mate, who com

witness the cruel scene, said u bystander,
" O, I wouldn't go down they nro only flog

several severe blows, the slave said " 'Twasn't
me, mnssn, 'iwusn'l me." On this ho com
menced healing Iho nlher mini so severely

A Plea for Eggs.

For eggs are brittle thing ;

Although quite fresh to-day.

Can mend a broken egg.
