RACHEL PARKER'S NARRATIVE.
I was taken from Joseph C. Miller's about
11 o'clock on Tuesday, (Pec. 80th, 1861,) by
two men who earns up to the houss by the teuk
door. One cams in end asked Mrs. Miller
where Jesse McCreary lived, and then seised
mo by th arm, and pulled me out of th house,
Mrs. Miller called to hsr husband, who was in
tht front porch, and he ran out and aeiied the
man by tho collar, and tried to atop him. The
other, with an oath, then told him to takt his
hsnds off, and if hs touched mo he would kill
him. He then told Miller that I belonged to
SchoolAeld, in Baltimore. They then hurried
in to a wagon, t here there was knottier large
man, put me in, and drove oft".
Mr. Miller ran across the field to head the
wagon, and picked up a stake to run through
the wheel, when one of the men pulled out
wwnrd, (I think it was a sword, I ncrcr saw
one.) and threatened In cut Miller's arm on".
Tollock's wagon being in the way, and he re
fusing to get out of tho road, we turned ofT tu
th left. After wo rode away, one of the men
tor a hole in the back of the carringe, to look
out and are if they were coming sf'cr us, and
thry said they wished they had given Miller
and Pollock a blow.
We stopped at a tavern near tho railroad,
nd I told the landlord (I think it waft,) that I
was free. I also told several of the persons at
the car office, and a very nice looking man at
tho car ofhVo was talking at th door, and he
aid he thought that they had better take mo
back again. One of the men did not come
further than the tavern. I was taken to Bulti
more, where we arrived about seven o'clock
th Sam avening, and I was taken to jail.
The next morning, a man with light colored
whiskers took me away by myself and asked
me if I was not Mr. School field's slav. I told
him I was riot ; he said that I was, and if I
did not say I was, he would cowhido me and
alt me, and put ma in dungeon." I told
him I was free, and that I would ssy nothing
but the truth.
MARY E. PARKER'S NARRATIVE.
Narrative of Mary Elixahcth Paiker, free
colored girl, belonging to Chester county, I'..,
a given by herself, in all the main featurea :
' I was taken from Matthew Donnelly's nn
Saturday night, (Dec. 6th or 13th, 1841.) was
caught whilst out af doors, soon after I had
cleared th auppcr table, about aeven o'clock,
by two men, and put into a wagon. One of
them got Into the wagon with me, and rudo to
Elk ton, Md., where I was kept until Sunday
night at twelve o'clock, when I left there in
the cara for Baltimore, and arrived there early
on Monday morning,
. At Elkton, man was brought in to see me,
by one of th men, who said I wis not his
father'a slave. Afterwards, when on tho way
to Ualtimore in the cars, a man told mo that I
must say that I waa Mr. School field's slave, or
h would shoot me, and pulled a "rifle" out
nt his pocket and showed it to me, and also
threatened to whip me.
. On Monday morning, Mr. Schoolficltt eallod
at th jail in Baltimore to see me; and on
Tuesday morning he brought his wife and sev
eral other ladies to see me. I told them I did
not know them, and then Mr. C. took me out
of the room, and told me who they were and
took me back again, so that I might appear to
know them. On tho next Monday, I was ship
ped to Now Orleans.
It took about a month to get to New Orleans.
After J had been triors about a week, Mr. C.
sold me to Madume C. who keeps a largo flow,
er garden. Sho sends flowers to sell to the
theatres, sells milk in maiket, &e. I went out
to sell candy and flowers for her when I lived
with her. One evening, when I was coming
home from tho thestre, watchman took me
up, and I told him I was riot a slave. Ho put
m in a calaboose, and next morniitg took mo
before a magistrate, who aent for Madamo ,C,
who told him she bought me. Ho then sent
for Mr. C, and told him he must account for
bow ho got me. Mr. C. aaid that my mother
and all th family wero free, except me. Th
magistrate told mo to go back to Madame C,
nd ha told Madame C. that ah must not let
me go out at night; and he told Mr. C. that
h must prove how hs came by mo. Tho
magistr it afterwards called on Mrs. C, at her
house, and had a long talk with her in the par
lor. I do not know what he aaid, as they were
by themselves. About month afterwards, I
waa sent back to Baltimore. I lived with Mad
am C. about six months.
Thero were six slavca cam in th vessel

D., and wcr returned because they wero
A men sailed to see me at th jail after I
cam back to Baltimore, and told me that I
must aay I waa Mr. Schoolficld'a slave, and
that if I did not do it, ho would kill me the
first time he got a ohance. He ssid Rachel
(her sister) said she cam from Baltimore, and
' was Mr. gehoolfleld's slave. Afterwards some
gentlemen called on me, (Judge Campbell and
Judge Bell of Philadelphia, ana V illiam 11
Norrie, Esq., of Bsltimore.) nd I told them I
was Mr; Sehoolfleld's slav. They aatd they
war my friends, and I must tell them th
truth, , I then told them who I was ana all

Mixed and taken from Pennsylvania, Deo. 6th
,'ot 18th, 1861, whleh is confirmed by othr
Theodore Clapp and Uncle Tom's Cabin.
From the following it teems that Rer. Mr.
Clapp would sooner burn house or commit
murder than write such book as Mrs. Stow'.
W don't doubt It. Th man who csn prostl
tut th religious sentiment and sanctify by his
utmost efforts th Dominations of slsvery, as
they exist under his own eye in New Orleans,
could hardly add to the immorality of his char
acter by tho commission of either of the erimcs
he specific. The Kentucky News, comment
ing upon this, says t
11 Now if Rer. Mr. Clnpp would as lesv
commit murder, or burn his neighbor's house,
aa to writ book, what la it ha would not do
for ell th gold In California. Look out for
such self-sacrificing characters, and weigh what
they aay, by viewing the circumstances In
which they are surrounded."
So ssy we, look out for such man, eapccl
all when he occupies the pulpit.
From the Memphis Express.
" Th Rev. Mr. Clapp, Unitarian clergyman
at New Orleans' in his Thankgiviu'g discourse
preached In that city, remarked as follows t
"A northern minister aaid to me last sum
mer, " I would not pass my life amid tho sla
very of Louisiana, even on condition of being
made proprietor of tho whole State." I will
not weary you by repetition concerning my
well known views concerning slsvery. But I
any with absolute sincerity thnt the Africans
held in servitude at tho South are, in genernl,
much better treated than the colored people in
any part of tho tree States. I go further, we
cannot st present difthargo our Christian du
ties without retaining them in bondage. I have
seen moro cruelty in Massachusetts than in
" In spite of tho outrageous caricatures of
Undo Tom's Cabin, there is more suffering
produced in my native State in one year by tho
ruthless brenking up of poor families and the
everlasting separation of parents and children,
than the slaves of Louisiana have suffered from
the same source during the thirty-one years of
my residence hero. Tho romanco which I havo
just mentioned is tissue of the basest Untruth
und the most erroneous injustice. I would no
moro write such book, if I could, than I
would commit murder, or set my neighbor's
house in flames at midnight j no ! not even if I
were to gain thereby the poems of all tho abol
itionists in New and Old England, and tho en
tiro gold of California. Ood have mercy on
tho fair authoress. The timo is coining whor.
she msy weep in bitterness of soul over the fa
tal consequences of her influinable folly.
' Even supposing the abolitionists to be right
in their doctrines, tho measures which they
adopt aro directly at variar.co with the ends
which they professedly seek. If they would
speak to us in the scccnts of reason, gentleness,
and Chriatian affection, we would listen with
patienco and candar. But instead of calm,
sensible, subdued, godlika argumentation,
they rely for success upon th foul ribaldry of
Billingsgate and unhallowed fiction, tending to
kindle flamo of exasperation between the
North and the South, which threatens ere long
to reduce tho glorious fuhric of our Union to a
shapeless and Mattered mass of ruins. The
republic of these States csnnot b perpetuated
by tho strong arm of the national government,
by paper constitutions, by legislative enact
ments, nor by military authority. Let the
aword be once drawn to enforce an act of Con
gress on a southern slave Stato, end that great
confederacy, the wor.dcr and admiration of the
world, will bo numbered with the things that
were 'Fuit Illiutn of ingens gloria.' Make

A Congressman's Opinion.
Mr. Marshall of California, in recent dis
cussion in the House of Representatives, gives
his opinion on the Slavery question as follows.
Mr. Marshall ia Democrat, co-nporating gen-
orally with the extremo Southern wing of that
" Mr. Chairman, the time is past when the
question of slavery In any territory about to bo
acquired, can produce the agitation and danger
which has arisen from it. The principle is set
tled by tho compromise, that tho citizens of
such territory, at tho time, ahall determine for
themselves this question; and if the North
should by its greater energy and aptitudo for
emigration, acquire tho popular power, and the
right under the rule ao settled by tho compro
mise, to declare any territory seeking admission
into the Union, free, the South eould not, if it
would, under th Constitution and laws, and
would rot, if it eould, resist measure benefi
cial to th wholo nation. The South should
be satisfied with the guaranteea of tho consti
tution and laws, for their peculiar institution ;
and even if it b receding, if th condition of
human society, and tho progress of free militate
sgainst it j if with the protection thrown round
it by the orgsnio law of the land, it be yet in
its own nature temporary and evanescent, and
bout to disappear before th democratic ener
giea and Uwaof political economy, ther is nei
th wisdom of statesman, nor tho generoua
patriotism of good citixen, in seeking to Im
ped the advance, nd check th dovelopcment
of state whor no such institution obtaina.
I believ myself, nd 1 spesk only for my
solf, that there will b no mor slave territory
annexed to th United Bute. Th history of
th country, nd especially of California, es
tablish th fact, and illustrate the principle
which governs the case. Look at California.
If slsvery could ever progress, it would have
obtaired there. Slavery la only advantageous
to the slaveholder in countries whero th larg
est amount of labor can be bestowed on th
smallest surface, and where it pays th heaviest
profit. Now, sir, sine man first left the gar
den of Eden, there has been no place discover
ed where these conditions are so wnndcrfnlly
met, as in California and yet I tell gentlemen
that there never was time when slavery could
have been introduced there, nor is there such
time coming. V approved tho com promise j
but the character of our state was fixed with
out it. Lsborwss imposed as curse, (and it
la awful in my private opinion,) and free citi
tens will not submit to have it made dishonors'
ble, as well aa disagreeable, by slave eompeti
tion. Free men will be the first emigrants,
and they have, and will protect their arittoera
ry of labor Irom th action of organized capital
in th shape ol slsvery."
Accused of stealing his wilo and children,
w havo elsewhere stated, was discharged.
Wo have sineo learned that his prosecutors
have abandoned the case. Says the Philadel
phia Bulletin, "No nne appeared against him,
and he was discharged, thus leaving the cao in
very suspicious position." That our readers
may moro fully understand tho case, wo copy
tho following article from tho Philadelphia
NEAL THE ALLEGE CRIMINAL.
We have heretofore bsta'licd from expressing
an opinion nn tho case of Mayo vs. Nenl, hop
ing the warrant so hastily granted by Governor
Biglcr, would be revoked, and that a prosccu
tion so likely to disgrace the States of Mary
land and Pennsylvania would be abandoned
end suffered to bo forgotten. But the facts
have already been spread beforo tho world by
the press. In a few days more, all Europo will
hove read them, and sequels to Vnclt Tom't
Cabin will bivo recorded them against our ci
vilization. In justice to our country, let them record also
that no case has ever so shocked public opinion.
It claps tho climax of all those which have
grown out of tho peculiar institution. The
Evening Bulletin, while reiterating its sdhesion
to tho Fugitive Slave Law, pronounces this case
an attempt to kidnap under legal proccea ; and
other papers aro no less plain in their reproba
tion of Mayo's conduct.
What has done more than any thing else to
turn tho current of public opinion against Mayo
is tho card published in tho Bulletin, by him
self or his agent, as paid advertisement. In
this, ho parades his vindictivo persecution of
Nenl in most offensive manner, and grossly
insults one of our most respected citizens by
placing his veracity below that of ono of th
negro spies on his plantation.
The principlo facts of Iho case msy be glean
ed from this coarso and insolent statement.
They aro as follows :
Richsrd Ncal was formerly slave in Mary
land. " Sumo fifteen or sixteen years ago," ha
mariicd Mutilda.wlio waathen Mayo's pi operty.
Acquiring his own freedom, and unwilling to
abandon his family, ho rented farm from Ma
yo and conducted it for several ycurs, with such
industry and success as to accumulnto valua
ble stock and clear several thousand dollars.
But ho was not contented. "All of a sudden,"
says Mayo, "Ncal informed the proprietor that
he must give up the farm, as it confined him too
much." The proprietor said, " Dick, you in
tend to play mc some dirty trick," when he fell
on his knees and declared ho had no such "in
tention." The "Jirty trick" alluded to was Noal's res
cuing Ilia w ife and children from slavery, Mayo
had already been informed of this design by his
" confidential scrvunts," or negro spies. His
fears wero not at all allayed by Ncal'a protesta
tions, and he kept a close watch on his move
ments. Some months afterwards, we find Mayo
making a visit to alarm ho owned some forty
miles otr, and taking with him, by way of pre
caution, Ncal'a w ile and her six children, ra
ther a nuineroua auito for Maryland furmcr.
In a fow days Mayo returned home, leaving
Matilda and five of her children. The oldest
son, "Billy," accompanied him to drive his
buggy. Next morning when tho manager was
about to give Billy a tasto of the cow hide "for
not cleaning and feeding his horse," Billy was
not to be found. Ho had disappeared and
hia mother, brothers and sisters with him.
Tho capture of tho family cost Mayo "over
Hi is loss seems to have w aked up Mayo'
spirit of revenge. His first act was to soil the
mother and her children ; his next to set on foot
means for the punishment of Ncal, whom he
suspected of being accessary to the flight.
Neal followed up his wife and children, spent
all ho had in purchasing their freedom, and
brought them to thia city, whero he has been
living for three years past, respected by those
who know him, as an honest, hard working man.
Thoso facta having come to to tho knowlodgo of
Mayo, on hia return from distant voyage, he
has in ado ono of hia "confiontiul servants"
whether flogged into it by the manager or not,
we do not know testily to having seen Ncal
aiding in th escape of his family. On this
doubtful testimony, requisition has been is
sued by tho Goveronnr of Maryland, and com
plied with thoughtlessly, we regret to say, by
the Governor of this State.
On one point, there is direct contradiction
in the statement of the different parties. Al
though the crime Neal stands charged with is
an unsuccessful attempt to rescue his wifo and
children from slavery crime never before
heard of in a civilized country, Mayo adds that
Neal ha recently tampered with his other
slaves, he offers to prove it by his negro spies,
whose word he says, " is as good aa that of
Mr. Sharplsss," one of our most worthy
citiiens, who has had Neal in hii employ, and
who states thst Ncal hss never left the city
long enough for trip to Ann Arundel county,
Msrylsnd. Oranting, for the sskeof argument
that the negro spies and the manager, who
wanted to cow hide Billy, sre equally credible
with Mr Sharpless, we do not think Mayo's
word as good aa Ncal'a. The former has shown
himself Implacable and rovengeful whilo w
know the latter as man who hss labored tho
best part of his life to redeem his wife and
children from slavery, and who, in hia humble
sphere enjoys the esteem of all w ho know him.
