Whoso weight I'to felt fur many a year.

To Wind my eye, and loso my way,
Would bo to f.ico the tyrant's prey:

Check not my prayers by a thorn
From bondage woreo than death I go.

The happy spirit's flown to realms of endless day!
There whips and chains can never come
TO mar thy soul, thou treasured one.
And should I fail to gain tho land where all are free,

For thou wilt never know tho shamoasfarc must feel;
Thy mother's heart can better bear
The bitter pangs thou cau'st not share.

"TiiEnE aro two things," said the young and beau
tiful Mrs. Lily, which 1 was constitutionally horn to
liate; Slavery and intemperance. 1 was born in
slave State, and reared amid all its influences, but
never for an hour, since my earliest rrccollection havo
I felt aujjht else than utter rcpugnauce, to the wliolo
system, to its injustice and wrong. I don't believe any
person thinks it right. They only defend it because
they cannot be consistent with themselves and their
interest (they think it Is tliofr Inlerest)-and condemri"
it. So they rack their brains to find excuses for their
own folly. 0 1 I wish there were a thousand Mrs.
Slowe's to shake the world."
" Why," said I, "you quite surprise me. I did not
expect to hear a native born Missourian give vent to
such feelings against the peculiar institution. So you
dissent from the opinion that "Uncle Tom" is an ex
Kxaggeration she exclaimed, rising from her re.
clining posture, "Exaggeration! Can there be cxag.
geration of slavery Can human thought imagine any
cruelty or injustice that human thought has not imag
incd and carried out? Talk of tho lash and chain
they are nothing when compared to tlio soul torture
that the creatures groan under for years. Let mo tell
you a story fresh and new. I had an old colored
woman washing for me for four or fivo years she was
one of the most faithful, truthful and pious women 1
over knew black or white. She was onco a slave,
belonging to Davenport. But he was a kinder
master than other men, and gave her the privilege of
buying her freedom for one thousand dollars. This
sum that old and faithful creature earned and paid her
self. Only think of it! one thousand dollars for tho
privilege of what our wise statesmen call the "inalien
able right of man," bestowed by the Creator. When
free, she stipulated for tho freedom of her son, in tho
like sum, and this with years of toil, she cafned, and
when he came to manhood's years, ho too was free."
Think of this, fair mothers of our land ! Ye who
hug to your hearts the children of your love, and
feel a mother's joy and sympathy. Could your love
do more than this for them? You work to clothe, to
school and make comfortable those dependent upon
your care ; but which of you can measure the toil that
this poor stricken mother had to bear, ere she filed
away the galling chains from the limbs of her child.
" Well," continued Mrs. Lily, (and she grew more
beautiful with every word,) " when the mother and son
were free, they pledged themselves to the owner of
another plantation to pay another thousand for tho
wife and child of tho ransomed son. The mastsr al
lowed tho woman to como to the city and live with
her husband, and work on her own hook, paying him so
much per month. Thrcu hundred dollars had been
paid. Some lime in April, this oppressed class had a
public tea-party and fair, to gather funds to finish their
church, a neat edifice on St. The mother, son,
and wife were there, returned home, or started homo
about midnight the horses ran away, and George,
attempting to get out of the carriage to assist the driver,
fell, and his head was dashed against the corner of a
He died instantly, and the morning papers announced
the facts, and spoke of him as a highly worthy and
respectable member of Church. But no sooner
had the owner of Susan, the wife, heard of George's
death, than he hurried to the city, post-haste, and took
the afflicted wife from their house, drove her to the
Slave auction and sold her to southern traders.
Thus were the three hundred dollars lost to those
who earned it, the old, toiling mother left childless; and
theyoung wife hut yesterday rejoicing in the strength
and hope of freedom and love, suddenly turned into
a chattel, and sold " away down south," to be a beast
of burden perchance for a Lcgrec."
"When did this happen?" we cried, almost gasp
ing for breath.
" Why, here lately. 1 met the old mother as 1 came
from our " Glorious Fourth" Picnic She was dressed
in deep mourning, (I had not seen her for along time,
for they had got them a home, and she did not wash
any more. I asked her what had happened, and she
told mo all. O ! Mr. G., how it made me feel ! 1
celebrated our liberty; she a woman a wife, a mother
mourning over enslaved, and doubly wronged chil
dren. " I know there is a God, Mrs. Lily," tho poor,
bowed creature said to me, " 1 know there is a good
God, And a Jesus) or I should give up in despair, and
sometimes i do; look up and down and all round,
and fAere f no lights"
" And is there none to defend you ?" 1 asked indig
nantly. " It seems not, for the deed was done." 'But,' said
she, rising to go, upon seeing my horrified look, " 1
should not have told you this." . I havo not slept qui
etly since 1 met this poor oppressed mother, and her
words ring in my ears "there is no light." It seems
even so but what can we do ?
My friend passed out and left me, whilo 1 continued
to pace tho floor, uttering those ominous words, " there
Is no light." Uopo seemed for a little whilo to veil
the radiance of her face with her pinions, and weep;
and then she opened her wings again, and her beam
ing eyes looked full upon me. I thought of the past,
the present and tho future. The beacon light blazed
up from afar, and I saw in the dim distance, by its far
reaching light, tho shackles fall off tho limbs of the
slave, unrivetted bv the hands of woman : I heard her
words of pleading and of prayer; 1 s"aw her acts of
oiuuucEs ana love ; ana a voice came to me: " Wo
man mutt do this work." Let the mother plead for
the mother; the wife for tho wife; the sister for
the titter; the daughter for the daughter. Let them
plead as woman only can, with an abiding faith, an
ardent hope, an enduring charity; and there will he
light for the slave mother, and the slave wife.

Modern Skepticism and the Church.
The New York Independent, a well known Con
gregational paper, holds tho following language ;
"Among all tho earnest-minded younr men who
aro at this moment leading in thought and action in
America, wo venture to say that four-fifths aro skep
tical even of tho great historical facts of Christianity.
hat is tow as Christian doctrine by the church
es is not even considered by them. And furthermore,
thcro is among them a general ill-concealed distrust
of tho clerical body as a class, and an utter disgust
with the very aspect of modern Christianity and of
the church worship. This skepticism is not flippant ;
itlle is said about it. It is not a peculiarity alone of
tho radicals and fanatics ; many of thorn arc men of
calm and even balance of mind, and belong to no class
f ultraists. It is not worldly and selfish. Tho
oubtcrs lead in the bravest and most sdf-denving en
terprises of tho day."
On this euhjcot tho JC.. OA-. u. xt.--.
Mr. Raymond, observes :
This may seem very strong language, but ten years
of reflection and observation in the service of the
Church has convinced us of its truth. It is a fact
that a largo proportion of tho young men of this very
city, particularly tho thinking and upright among
them, arc to-day tinged with skeptical views. It is
useless to stand shaking tho head with sorrow and
anxiety about it and much more useless tostarlhack
with sanctimonious horror, or to attempt any sort of
proscription with regard to it, or to label such men
'infidel" and with "bell, book and candlo," having
detached them from tho sympathies and confidence of try would glory in tho spiritual if not in tlio literal
society, to frighten them back into tho fold. Tho j of tho Diblo story, and adopt it as tho guide to earth

Christianity, irrational and unnatural as wo know it
to be. That this may bo found in tho tendencies of
fallen human nature, and in tho heart's impatience o
control, is truo enough in ono sense, and wo aro well
aware that this solution of tho difficulty, exempting
selfishness and sloth from all responsibility as it docs,

public attention at this day, is training the people to
infidelity. Religion is "commended to every man's
conscience" it is said to bo in perfect harmony with
his reason and with tho convictions of his moral na
ture And yet when every conclusion of a young
man's judgment and every instinct of his soul recoil
from the idea of property in an immortal man as an
inhumanity, as a blasphemy, a libel on the Gospel of
Christ, an outrage on the imago of God ho is grave
ly told by some solemn deacon of the church that God
sanctions the system, and the Gospel, in blank oppo
sition to its most vital principles, hallows it. While
tho generous and manly heart of the youth is torn
with conflicting emotions of pity and indignation at
beholding the myrmidons of a government, venal and
corrupt as an alliance with the gtcat slave abomina
tion can make it these myrmidons themselves, noto
riously tho basest of mankind- ruthlessly hunting
from his homo or tearing from his wife and children
some poor dark-skinned neighbor whoso life-long un
requited toil has not yet cancelled another man's claim
to his body and, to his soul behold his minister (or
his father's minister) rises in his pulpit and tells him
that thero is no Iliglter Law than the statuto that in
stitutes this accursed work, and declares that as obe
dient citizens, "thus it becometh us to fulfil all righ
teousness !" Is it any wonder that when the same
clergyman, on the succeeding Sabbath, announces his
text, "Whatsoever ye would that others should do un

Why isjt that so .many hundred's of thousands aro
falling off, in these days,' from tho; churches into tho
World, if not from a' lurking distrust of tho genuine'
or manifested, and claim for tho churches of God ev
ery effort that had been mado for tho elevation of hu
manity, from tho beginning ; but alas, tho scene is
changed, and savo those enterprizes which, however
beneficent lhoy may ho, are still put forlh under sec
tarian colors, instances of church participation in tho
great schemes of philanthropy aro exceptions rather
than tho rule. A day of winnowing will surely
romo, when, wo doubt not, much which is now brand
ed as infidelity will bo owned of tho Great Master,
and much of the pride and prejudico of modern relig
ion must take its placo with the hroad-phylactericd
hypocrisy of the days nf Christ.
There is mucli good sensd In the above. Wc can
notagrce with tho Chronicle in tlio idea that this "mod-
cm infidelity," as it is called, is owing to the "dis
affection of our youth to the pur and beautiful truths
of Christianity," nor is it to ho tccounted for by any
evidence which lhoy furnish of "c tendencies of fal
len human nature." It is because die "earnest mind
ed young men" of tho text, actually respect tho "pnro
ami ticautilul truths ol Christianity," aid from experi
ence and acquaintance with professorship churches,
believo they do not respect them, thatthty turn away
from tho whole concern. They eco if 'mMcrn Chris
tianity' is truly genuine, it has proved a fahurc to its
professed aims and ends, and if it is spurious, it is to
be despised as a cloak for crime, and in either caso is
not tho celestial thing that came down from God,
which their needs eravo. They linvo aspirations for
truth, and therefore they turn, as they suppose, from
what is not, to their own instincts and sympathies, &
find the Kingdom of Cod written there.
Modern Christianity rules the country, and puts up
and puts down what it pleases.' Hut it does not rule
in mercy. Was it merciful and Chrisllike, it would
havo cleansed the state and the country long ago of
every dram-shop and every chain, instead of counte
nancing and licensing dram-shops and slavery. Our
young men aro not so green as to hclicvo in a Chris
tianity of that sort. Proud churches, proud people,
and Heaven-defiant enactments como not into the score
of their views of tho Bible and tho Christ of the Di
blo. They know full well if the churches were light,
intcmperanco and slavery would pass off from the
earth like tho morning cloud and early dew. Thoy
would not last a twelve-month. Thevseo tho church
of tho country baptized in the putrid pool of party
politics, literally becoming tho Partizan School of
I'ashion, and filling up its costly temples, as uumis
takeablo evidence of its carlhliness, and utterly re
gardless of the wretchedness that surrounds them.
Ono of two things they seo they must do ; cither turn
from ihcm, or bo hypocrites themselves. The church
itself opens no motive sufficient, in its pulpits, for
their sacrifice of all self-respect, and if they adopt its
reforms for tho sako of currency in tho political and
commercial world, it is done with an internal & gene
rally unconcealed contempt for tho wliolo ennccru.

has opened around our dwellings for tho ruin of every

most in tho works of love and mercy, our "earnest
minded young men," instead of turning from it and
despising it in their hearts, would honor and embrace
it as tho mother of life. If that was in tho way of

The flame of liberty is smothered, but not cxtin-
C guished, in this open country. The present feeling
ol Hungary towards tho Austnans is thus described
by a correspondent of the Christian Register:
"I asked several persons what tho feelings of the
Magyars were in regard to Kossuth ; the invariable
answer was, that almost to a man thoy were his friends
and ready to rise at any moment, so much so, indeed,
that tlio government
lias not tho slightest contidenco '
in them ; sends the soldiers raised in Hungary, by
conscription, immediately out of the place; has com
l'letuly disarmed the people, making death the penal-
of concealing weapons and not even allowing a
knifo Polnt ! An slronS Placos aro garrisoned by
Austnans, for tho Italian regiments, many of which
1'cpt here, aro looked upon as not much bolter
disposed towards tho government than the Hungarians.
Every nook and corner of tho city is guarded and pa-1
lance, either open or secret. Tho taxes are about!
doublo what thoy were before the revolution ; yet tho
natural resources of the country are so great, that it
seems notwithstanding lo thrive."
Early Hisino Required by a Will. In tho will
of tho late Mr. James Sargcant, of Leicester, is the
following clause :
"As my nephews aro fond of indulging them
selves in bed in the morning, and as 1 wish them to
provo to tho satisfaction of my executors that they

i3th of April to tho 10th of Oct., being three hours
each day j and from 7 till 0 o'clock in the morning
from the 10th of Oct. to the Cth of April, being two'
hours every morning ; this to be dono for some years,
to tho satisfaction of my executors, who may excuse
them in case of illness, but the task must be made up
when they are well ; and if they will not do this, they
shall not receivo any share of my property. Tem

them vigorous. It is temperance and exercise united

This tiW (he dear lifeless victim we bear to the tomb
is a wonV On the 21st or January last, a woman
was arrcsU in ler own house at Paris by M. IIou
drot, a commissary of police. This woman, still
young, (shtfwas hut thirty-five,) but a cripple and in
firm, vas sen to tho Prefecture, and confined in tho
cell N) 1, called "tho trial cell." This cell, a sort
of a ctgo about t.cven or eight feet square, without
air or .ight, has been painted by llie unfortunate pris
oner hirself, in a single phraso; she called it a "tomb
like duigeon." Sho says, and I quote her own words,
"In tlib tnmb-liko dungeon, mutilated and ill, I pass
ed one and twenty days, pressing my lips, from tiino
to time, against tho grating, to obtain a litllo fresh
air, so hat I might not die." At the end of these
21 days, on tho Hlh of Fohruary, tho government of
JJecemler released this woman, and expelled her,
They llrust her at once out of prison and out of tho
Tho ixilo left her dungeon with tho germs of con-
sumpnoi in licr Iramo. bhe quilted Franco, and
went lo Dclgimn. Poverty compelled her to travel,
coughinr, spitting blood, her lungs diseased, in tho
depth "of winter, in tho north, amid rain and snow,
and in Oioso horrible uncovered carriages which dis
grace lib wealth of railway companies.
She arrived at Ostcnd ; sho had been ilrion from
rrantti sho was now driven from Belgium. She
went to England. Hardly had she landed at London
when she took to her bed. Tho disease contracted in
the dungeon, and aggravated by tho hurried journey
of banishment, had assumed a dangerous aspect. Tho
exile I ought rather lo say the poor convict under i
sentence of death lay sick and helpless for two !
months and a half. Then, in the hope of finding
here amoro genial spring, and a little sunshine, she
came lo Jersey. Wc can remember her arriving ono
cold, rainy morning, through tho humid mist3 of the
sea, coughing and shivering in a wretched stuff dress,
all soaked with wet. A few days after her arrival
sho wasagain compelled to take to her bed ; she never
rose from it again. Three days ago she died. You
will asl; mo who this woman was, and what sho had
dono to be so treated ? I will tell you.
This woman, by patriotic songs, by sympathetic
and heartfelt words, by good and civic actions, had
rendered the name of Louiso Julien. under which the .
people knew and honored her, celebrated in the fau
bourgs of Paris. An humble workwoman, she sup
ported her sick mother, and had tended and maintain
ed her for ten years. In tho days of civil strife, sho
occupied herself in making lint, and though lamo and
bearccly able to drag herself along, she went about to
tho abidances and helped tho wounded of both par
tics. Tins woman of tho people was a poetess : sho
was gifted with an elevated mind. She sang the re-
believed in God, in tho people, in progress, in Franco!
sho poured around, like a vase, hor largo heart, filled
with love and fiith, into tho minds of the poor. That
is what this woman did. M. llonaparto has slain her.
Oh ! such a grave as this is not silent, it is filled with
sighs, with groans, and with execrations.
Citizens, tlio people, in tho legitimate pride of their
might, build with granito and marble enduring edifi
ces, majestic halls, and lofty tribunes, from which
their genius speak aloud, and from which tho lively
eloquence of patriotism, of progress, and of liberty
spread abroad in vast waves through the souls of tho
nation; the people, believing that it only needs to be
sovereigns lo bo unconquerable, imagine these cita
dels of speech, these sacred fortresses of human in
telligence and civilization, to bo inaccessible and im
pregnable, and they say, "the tribuno is indestructi
ble." Thoy deceive themselves ; those tribunes may
bo overthrown. A traitor comes, soldiers arrive, a
band of robbers concert, unmask themselves, fire, and
tho sinctnary is invaded tho stone and the marble
aro scattered the palace, tho temple where a great
nation spoke to tho world, crumbles into dust, and tho
foul conquering tyrant applauds his deed, claps his
hands, and cries, "It is ended. None will speak a-1
gain : not a voico will henceforth bo raised. All is
silent." Citizens, the tyrant in his turn deceives
i1itllt.,if'. n,l will ni nnrmit that sit shrill v-

word, shall not ho heard.
Citizens, at this moment, when tho triumphant des

of its friends. It commenced its sessions with fifteen
hundred persons it closed them with barely one hun
dred, and tho greater part of its timo was occupied in
discussing points of order, in strife, contention, and
acts of rowdyism.
The immediate cause of the disgraceful disturbance
was the attempt of Antoinette L. IJrown to addiess
tho Convention. She was (lie only woman who at
tempted to speak in that assembly, and if sho had held
hor tongue there would, probably, havo been no trou
ble. On her and her sympathizers, tho Providence
Tribune vents its wrath ; they and only they, aro the
persons justly open to censuro and condemnation !
If Miss llrown was an obtruder there if sho had no
right in that Convention if it was in violation of the
rules of tho Convention for her to speak then is sho
responsible for tho bedlam scenes enacted during the
"three days" at Metropolitan Hall. Tho only impor
tant question is, had tho woman a right to speak in
that Convention! If so, then those who opposed tho
woman were the wrong doers, and on them rest the
disgraco and odium of the rowdy proceedings,
I The Tribune has been exceedingly careful to keep
this, the most important point in tho whole matter,
entirely concealed. We'll bring it out into tho light
and let tho people seo at whose door lies tlio shamo
1 of theso "disturbances."
Hev. John Marsh, in a letter to iroraco
published in tho New York Tribune of May 18th,
"Who has said a word about excluding AVomen
from tho Convention and all its entertainments! No
one. Tho basis of the Convention has not been set
tled. It will probably be as broad as the world."
John Marsh wo consider pretty good authority, and
he declares that tho platform would "probably bo as
broad as tho world," and nobody had said a word a
bout excluding women from the cntcrlainmcnts of tho
Again, ex-Mayor Barstow declared to us in tho of
fice of the Advocate, soon after the call for tho World's
Convention was issuedt that women woro entitled by
it, to sit in tho Convention and speak on the platfoim.
And furthermore, the Providcnco Tribune which is
generally considered as his organ, published, in its
editorial columns on tho first day of September, the
following construction of tho aforesaid call.

they could by its spirit. Was Miss llrown a delegate

How much Sleep 1
"Show us a man who sleeps twelve hours," says
a cotemporary, "and wo will Show you & blockhead.'1
The meaning of tho writer, as we gather from thd
rest of his article, is that four or five hours is suffi
cient fur any man to sleep. This, however, is an er
ror. Different constitutions require different quanti
ties of sleep, for whilo ono person is healthy on fivd
hours sleep, another requires eight. Generally speak
ing, individuals iq whom the nervous organization
predominates, need tllat amount of sleep ; the wear
and tear of brain being so grct.., .vhile they are awake,
that a proportionate excess of rest is dcmandcd
Ovcrtasking themselves, without accurate sleep, is td
such persons prcmaluro death. Neuralgia, if not in
sanity, is suro to intervene, followed eventually by
death. For this class of individuals to endeavor to
do with as liltlo sleep as thoso differently constituted,'
is like expecting a cislcm, fed by periodical rains on
ly, to yield inexhaustible supplies of water as a hy
drant supplied from a public aqueduct. It is like
looking for crops when nmliing is put, on the l$nd.
It is inexliaustiblo vitality, in a word, and allowing
no timo for recuperation.
Thcro aro some persons, fortunately constituted
who with a hlgli ti'fe'rvoiis organization, yet .require
comparatively litllo sleep. Brougham is a living in
stance. Napoleon was a still moro remarkable ex-
amplc Tlio, great Bmpcror raroly slept fivo hotirsV.
In truth ho owed Ids wonderful Success as ifufch 111
his capacity to endure faliguo as to his genius, for ho
could outwork two ordinary men, if not more. Yef,'
after periods of immense and protracted exertion, hd
would sleep nearly a day. Bourrieno, his secrciary;
rclalcs that after Napoleon returned from Russia, hd
slept eighteen hours without waking. Veiy few in
tellectual men, however, could have performed Napo
leon's quantity of work, at any time, with so lilllo
sleep. Laboring wiih the brain i3 oven moro exhaust
ing than laboring with tho muscles, and consequently
demands as much repose for purposes of recuperation.
Nevertheless there aro persons with trhom sleep'
has become a disease. Thoy rise late, dozo after din
ner, nod in tho evening, and in fact, may bo said nev
er to bo more 'than half awake. Such people kill
themselves, in the end, as surely as if they had been
deprived of needful sleep ; for every vital function bo'''
comes torpid, life stagnates, and death HI last carries
off the victim. Philadelphia Ledger.
Incident of the Yellow 1'evcr.
The scourge spares noW. 'i'lie youthful and thd
aged ; the beautiful uJ tho good ; child, uaro,j, sis
ter, brother all " before l" insatiate monster of
the yellow rcath. The jV. O. Crescent gives tho
follo-'i'f) interesting incident :
"A few months aao a merchant of this city took
to his homo and heart a youthful bride, and went to
reside in the Fourth district. Wishing to live in pri
vacy, ho engaged only one servant a fresh green
1 from tho KmcralU Isle, ono iook inc ieer anu
a lew-uays uieu. .iinotner was tilro.l and shared
the samo fato. A third and fuurth filled the vacancV
in tho housohold, and followed in succession tho swcopJ
ing summons of tho same fell destroyer. Following
llie impulse of a natural dread, the merchant went to'
Mobilo to avoid tho destructive visitation of thd
scourge, and tho next day buried his young and beau
tiful bride. Disgusted with a home where nought
but empty chambers served to call up the memories of
departed joys, ho returned to tho City to sell out his
household, determined to leave a locality to him so
suggestive of sorrow, lie died tho next day. When
our informant visited tho premises, there was but ono
living creature thero. It was a solitary parrot, sw ing
ing in its lonely cage, and wailing unwittingly its do-'
sorted stalo. Alas ! poor Pol !
Tho circumstances which affect the quality of tho
milk ato various. Tho breed has an effect ; tlio small
ones yielding richer milk than the larger, in which
respect tho small Derry cow is superior to tho largo
Yorkshire Tlio kind of food also affects the milk ;
hay, corn and oil-cake produce richer milk than turn
ips and straw, and yield moro butler ; bcait-meal and
tares afford more cheese than oil-cake, corn, potatoes
and turnips. In tho time of calving, it i3 well known
that tho first milk of a cow, called tho beistyn is much
riolior than milk which sho ordinarily gives. Ill wet
and cold weather the milk is less rich than in warm
and dry, though not thundery weather.
Tho season has its effect; tho milk in tho spring is
supposed tn he best for drinking ; hence, is then best
suited fur calves, in summer for cheese, in autumn
for butter tho autumn butter keeping better than
summer. Cows less frequently milked than olhcrs
will givo richer milk, and consequently more butler.
Tho morning's milk is richer than tho evening's.
Tho last drawn milk of each milking, at all times and
seasons is richer than any other part of tho milk,, and
much richer than the milk first drawn, which is tho
A cow before sho becomes again in calf, gives rich
er milk than afterwards, a portion of tho secretion
which supplies the richer milk being, no doubt, with
drawn lo support the Actus. A well-formed cow will
generally give more milk than an ill-formed one.
Old pastures produce richer milk than thoso just got
iuto grass. Many other circumstances may bo known
in different localities, to affect tho quantity of the milk
of cows; but a sufficient number have been given to
show how various are the circumstances which may
affect tho produce of the dairy, and how perplexing
it must bo lo conduct it in tho most profitable way.

Threo ftr four weeks ago an amusing incident took
place In ono of thp inpst fashionable gf tho" .New York
hotels, which is too good to bo lost. A distinguished
Southern gentleman, formerly a member of tho cabi
net, was a boarder in the houso, and preferring not to
eat at tho tablo d'hote, had his meals served in his
own parlor. Being somewhat annoyed with tho airs
of a negro servant who waited on him, ho desired him
one day to retire. Tho negro bowed and took his
stand directly behind tho gentleman's chair. Sup
posing him gono, it was with impatience that a few
minutes after, tho gentleman saw him step forward to
remove the soup. "Fellow," said ho "leave thp
room, I wish to bo alone,." "Excuse mo sir," sa'd
Cuffee, drawing himself up stiffly, "but lam respon
sible for the silver."
Rich Scene. Among the Sunday sports in Cin

ber of pockets picked."
