The Yankee Girl,
BY JOHN G. WH1TTIER.
She singi by licr wheel at the low cottage ioot,
Which the long evening shadow is stretching before,
With a music as sweet is the music which seems
Breathed softly and faint in the ear of our dreams.
How brilliant and mirlhful the light of her eye,
Like a star glancing out from the blue of tho sky,
And lightly and freely her dark tresses play
O'er a brow and a bosom as lovely as they! .
Who conies in his pride to that low cottage-door;
Ths haughty and rich to the humble and poor ?
'Tis the great southern planter; the master who waves
, Ilia whip of dominion o'er hundreds of slavas.
" Nay, Ellen for shame!1 Let those yankce fools spin,
Who would pass for oui slaves with a change of their
. Let them toil as they will, at the loom or the wheel,
Too stupid for shame, and too vulgar to fuel!
But thou art too lovely and precious a gem,
To be bound to their burdens and sullied by them, '
For shame! Ellen, shame! cast thy bondage aside,
And away to the South, as my blessing and pride.
Oh, come where no winter thy footsteps can wrong,
But where flowers are blossoming all the year long,
Where the shade of the palm tree is over my home,
And the lemon and orange are white in their bloom!
On, come to my home, where my servants shall all
Depart at thy bidding, and come at thy call ;
They shall heed thee as mistress with trembling & awe
And each wish of thy heart shall be felt as a law."
Oh, could ye have seen her that pride of our girls,
Arise and cast back the dark wealth of her curls,
With a scorn in her eye which the gazer could feel,
And a glance like the sunshine that flashes from steel!
" Go back, haughty Southron! thy treasures of gold
Are dim with the blood of the hearts thou hast sold;
Thy home may be lovely, but round it I hear
The crack of the whip and the footsteps of fear!
And the sky of the South may be brighter than ours,
And greener the landscapes, and fairer thy flowers;
But, dearer the blast round our mountains which raves
Tban the sweet summer zephyrs which breathe over
Full low at thy bidding thy negroes may kneel,
With the iron of bondage on spirit and heel!
Yet know that the Yankee Girl sooner would be
In fetters with them, than in freedom with thee!"
From the Baltimore Saturday Visiter
History of Lootank, a Kidnapped African
A TRUE NARRATIVE
In the autumn of 1793, wlien an insurrection of
tho whole colored population took place in the Is
land of St Domingo, and wrus followed by the con
flagration of Cane Francois, the wealthy inctrop
olis ot that noh Island, the white inhabitants,
order to save their lives from the jrcnernl massa
ere that was threatened, fled precipitately from
their homes and sought an asylum on board the
vessels then Ivintr in the harbor. Finding that
neither themselves nor the shipping were safe
the port, they hastily put to sea with such valua
bles as they had been alile to save. Many of the
inhabitants of the Island being immensely wealthy
brought with them large sums in gold and jewel
ry, which enabled them to subsist until they could
obtain access to other means ol support; but some
saved nothing except the clothes they had on. A
bout the month of August or September of that
year, a considerable number ol these lugitives
composed of every age, sex and condition, arriv

eentleman. named Bover, without any family ex
ceptnn African boy, to whom he appeared much
attached, and was vcrv kind. Tho boy was of a
mild, amiable countenance, had been liberally
tatooed on his cheeks and arms was the son ot
an African Prince and as he stated, was kidnap
ned before he was ten years old.
This gentleman look lodgings at a respectable
boarding house then kept by Mrs. li. in Mar
ket street, a few houses east of Saint Paul's Lane
The boy acted as a sort ot valet de chambre to
him, and might frequently be seen walking afte
him, in his peregrinations about the city, being al
ways, as well as his master, neatly dressed.
It so happened that nbout three or four years
after the arrival of Mens. Boyer, his affairs re
quired his return to the West Indies, and he left
Baltimore with the intention of visiting the Island
of St. Domingo, expecting howev(r to return af
ter a brief absence. Not desiring to take this boy
back as he might be forcibly detained there, he
left him in charge of Mrs. E , who as every
one knew, was a humane, kind and most benevo
lent lady, with directions that she should take
good care of him until bis return, and with n re
quest, that should any fatal accident befal him,
the boy might be liberated when he attained the
nge of twenty-one years, lie was then judged to
be about eighteen years old.
Nothing vvs ever heard from Boyer, after he
sailed;, the vessel in whicii he embarked, having
it was supposed, foundered at sea, and all on
While residing in Baltimore, Mons. Boyer had
formed an intimate acquaintance with a French
lady of surpassing beauty .itnl rare personal attrac
tions, and with whom there is no doubt he left the
means of comfortable support, until he would re
turn, but time rolled on these means were ex
hausted and no tidings came from him, so that
all hopes of his ever returning were abandoned,
and tho lady became housekeeper to another
Frenchman, who then kept a jeweller's shop at
the corner of Market Street anil St. Paul's Lane.
This-gentleman finding bis affairs not prosperous,
soon afterwards left her and removed to New Or
leans after which, nothing is known of him.
The boy in question was now become of
the age when it was understood he would be mau
milled.. While he continued with Mrs. E

now desirous to set him free According to the di
rection of his niasteiv and she so informed the
writer of this narrative.
The lady, however, to whom I have heretofore
referred, had by this time become somew hat em
barrassed in her money concerns, and looking
round for means to relieve herself,, she cast her
eye upon this boy, and forthwith put in a claim to
him as the widow iff llnvcr. to whom. kIip hIIputmI
she had been married : accordingly she sent a con
stable to seize and take possession of him. The
boy being privately informed of her intention, fled
and took shelter in a family who knew him well,
and who having ascertained the intention of his
pretended mistress, and also heard tho statement
of Mrs. E. , resolved to protect him. A peti
tion for freedom was accordingly filed by an em
inent lawyer in this city, m. Grwinn, h,sq. 1 he
boy in the mean time being placed m custody of
the writer ot this history.
It is not necessary to our present purpose, that
we should here go into a detail of the contest that
followed. The struggle was earnestly contested
on all sides and the result was, that it terminated
a compromise between the parties, and the boy.
whose African name was Lootank, obtained his
1' Hiding Inmselt free, Loofniik earnestly entrea
ted the gentleman who had protected mm, to take
him into his family which was accordingly done,
and he here conducted himself so satisfactorily,
that he gained the confidence and regard of bis
employer, and by care and frugality, saved every
year more than one half of his wages. He was in
lact, a taitniui, nonest, attentive servant, and very
rigid in the observance of his duties as a stiict
Catholic, in which faith he had been instructed by
After remaining in this family several years,
Lootank married an orderly colored girl of good
disposition and habits, of the same religious faith
as himself but unfortunately she was a slave!
This girl was a chambermaid in a respectable
family in Baltimore; the head of it, being at that
time a wealthy dry goods merchant, living in Mar
ket street, a tew doors west ot Charles street.
Within the course of three or four years she had
two children, and was becoming rather an incum
brance to the family; her master therefore determ
ined to sell her, ami she accordingly was private
ly disposed of to a slave dealer, and hurried on
board a vessel, then on the point of sailing to New
Orleans, without the slightest intimation having
been given either to herself or her husband, who
in fact knew nothing of her removal until after
she had sailed and then he was refused any in
formation whatever regarding her destination.
Lootank, who up to this time had been cheerful
and apparently contended, at once sunk into a con
dition of the most gloomy melancholy; from that
moment, he scarcely ever uttered a word unless
he was spoken to, and was never seen to smile.
He continued for several months in this stati of
wretchedness and despondency, scarcely ever lea
ving the house, unless sent out; and finally, from
being a perfectly sober man, he rapidly fell into a
habit of intoxication.
His past good conduct and his afflictive circum
stances which had led to his present condition,
naturally excited the commiseration of the family
in which he lived, ami every effort was made to
reclaim him, but nothing could be done his case
was utterly hopeless, and it was evident that be
was a lost man. 1 hough now of little use in the
family, he was permitted to remain, and was pro
vided for; his life at length becoming a buithen to
him, he concluded to go to sea; avid without con
sulting any one, engaged as a cook on board a
vessel bound to Havana.
About two years subsequent to this movement
on the part of Lootank, during all which time
nothing had been heard from him, and when it
was supposed he was dead, he suddenly present
ed himself in the kitchen of his former protector.
His appearance was squalid and very miserable
his health gone, and his constitution irreelaima
bly destroyed. Upon being questioned in rela
tion to his adventures, since he sailed, he gave the
following account of himself.
He states that upon arriving at the Island of Cn
br, he was constantly employed in various servi
ces about the vessel, until she was reloaded and
about to return home; he was then sold by tho
Captain as a slave, to a Spaniard, with whom he
remained without disclosing his right to freedom,
or making any remonstrance or complaint: but
with a fixed determination to avail himself of the
first opportunity to escape.
After remaining in Cuba something more than
a year, chance led him to an acquaintance with
the steward of a brig which at that time was load
ing at Havana for New Orleans, and to whom he
made known his case. After some conference be
tween them, it was agreed that ho should, the
night before the vessel sailed, be smuggled on
board and stowed away; which accordingly was
i m i i i . i . i
done, x ne orig sailed tne next morning me
passage was made in a few days, and the steward
managed to keep him concealed and furnish him
with food, until he was safely landed at New Or
leans. Arrived m that city, he found himself nearly
without money, and unknown to every individual
there. In this condition he had no resource but
to seek employment about the quays, as he ecu M
pick up, and thus from day to day he managed to
obtain a precarious subsistence no one question
ing his right to freedom, or in any way molesting
Being of a civil and obliging disposition and
wittjai, when sober, an excellent servant, he at
tracted the notice of a gentleman at New Oi lcans,'
who was about to make a visit to an estate which I
he owned some twenty or thirty miles above the
city, and where he expected to remain several'
weeks. This gentleman agreed to take him into ;
his service as an out-rider and hody-servant, to1
attend him. They had only proceeded a short'
distance on their journey, w hen passing a field in I
which a large number of hands were laboring near :
the road, poor Lootank discovered amongst them :
his wife, who had been so barbarousl y torn fromj
hiin, and of whom he had since, until this moment,
heard nothing. He instantly cried out to his new I
master and implored that he might be permitted
to stop and speak to her. This favor was grant
ed. Upon approaching his wife, he was so over
come by li'w feelings, that for several minutes he
could not utter a word. I he overseer w ho was
with this gang, as soon as he was made acquaint
ed with the circumstances, bluntly told Lootank,
that he must proceed on Ins journey, as lie could
not permit the work to be longer interrupted ! His
wife then informed him that it was useless lor
him to remain there that their connexion was
dbsnlved-r-that she had now another husband, and
even if he were disposed, for her sake, to make
himself a slave and remain, it would do no good,
and he had better make up his mind to leave and
forget her forever.
Upon this, more dead than alive he was taken
away, and proceeded on his journey. The gen
tleman with whom he was now travelling, being a
humane man, upon learning his history, kindly
procured and paid his passage back to Baltimore,
and thus he was enabled to return to his former
friend and protector.-
His remaining history is short. This last shock
had utterly overwhelmed him. He was now en
feebled in constitution broken hearted and de
jected, Ho frequently wandered about without
appearing to know whither he was going, but was
always harmless auu inouensive.- ji lengtn one
bleak stormy day in the month of December, he
strayed off and did not return. The succeeding
night was dreary and cold, and tho following mor
nin" he was discovered, laying under a carpenter's
shed, upon a few shavings, frozen to death a
This narrative, which is faithfully drawn, con
tains not one exaggeration, nor one attempt at
embellishment. In nil its parts it is strictly true.
It discloses the life and adventures ol a Hind ncai
ted, and well disposed fellow being, pursued by
an almost uninterrupted train, of calamities from
his cradlo to his grave, nnd which appeared to
have followed him to the last moment of his mor
tal cxiatwiee. Born the son of a Prince, he was
in infancy, by ruthless violence, torn from his pa
rents, reduced to slavery, and transported into a
distant country, where he ended his wretched life,
a victim to one almost unbroken scries of calami
ty and misery !
"Thus did life in one sad tenor run,
And end in sorrow, as it first begun."
Many years have now elapsed, since these cir
cumstances occurred, and of all the individuals,
referred to as parties concerned in them, only two
are supposed to bo alive The counsel who de
fended, and the friend who protected, this child of
misery and suffering. These are now both far
advanced in age, and must also soon pass away,
and be seen of men no more.' T.
Fate of a Retaken Fugitive Slave, .
The Albany Patriot gives the particulars of the
case of Win, Johnson, a fugitive slave who es
caped with his family into Canada from Missouri,
about three years ago. Soon nf'ter, he engaged
himself on board one of the Buffalo steamboats as
a cook, in which situation ho was seized by his
old mastcrs's son and carried back to Missouri.
In order to compel him to confess where his fami
ly was, he was placed in the stocks and burnt with
red-hot irons on his right side and arm, his tor
mentors cursing and blaspheming, and threaten
ing to burn his heart out! 1 ho President and
Secretary of the Albany Vigilance Committee in
their report of this atrocious outrage, say: " The
man is ci milled for life his whole side seems
partially paralyzed from 'ho effects of the stocks
and burning. He is constantly in pain and halts
when walking is compelled to use a staff. He
showed us the marks he carries, marks of his cruel
tormentors, and will carry them to his grave.'
About three months eg", Johnson escaped a
second time from his bondage, and was kindly re
ceived by the abolitionists of Albany, on his way
to his family in Canada.
A Cheap Soul.
Mr. 1elimatiowsky, a role, who was twenty-
three years an ollieer in the army ot JJonaparte
now a minister of the gospel in one of the wes
tern States, at one of the late meetings in Boston
illustrated and applied a point, by the following
anecdote: There was once a gentleman of high
standing, who wanted to come to America to see
tin! country. Ho came on board the ship with a j
gold chain around his neck, anil drest in the richest
stylo, ami every one on board respected him, be
cause of his outward appearance; tor they thought
be must be some nobleman. v ell, one day he
was leaning over the baluter, and as he happened
to lean too hard, and the baluster was rotten he
fell overboard. Nobody saw it but a poor tar.
He called to the helmsman to lay by, for there
was a man overboard, jumped in after him, mid
soon brought him on board. "Tho gentleman had
got bis mouth filled with salt water, and it was
with much effort that he was recovered. But af
ter a great deal of rubbing and clapping, he open
ed his eyes, and the first thing he said was, 'Who
saved mo? I must reward him.' So he was brought
on deck, and the poor sailor was brought before
him, and all the sailors crowded round to see w hat
a great reward their poor brother tar was to get

So he put his hailfl ill his

last he brought out a fourpence! The poor tar re
jected it with scorn, and the rest of the crew were
so indignant that they wanted to throw him over
board again; but the poor fellow who saved him,
said, ' No, he had paid just the value of his soul
his soul is just worth fourpence.' "
From the Maine Farmer.
Mr. Holmes: Would it not bo for the interest
of farmers to turn their attention, the coming
spring, more to tho rnisiifj of beans? Our fathers
used to raise only a few bushels, even in bean por
ridge times, and, at least, half of them were cook
ed in, and cat with the broth of meat, which was
very nourishing and wholesome food. But as the
average price of beans has been for the last ten
years, I would suggest if any more profitable crop
can bo raised, than beans, if a proper variety be
planted ? They will yield two-thirds as much per
aero as oats, and, on easy land, it is but a trifle to
cultivate them. A man may hoe a half an acre a
day, and have his nap at noon. Thirty bushels of
oats at 2: cents a bushel, are worth $7,50; 20
bushels ot beans at $l,2a per bushel, arc worth
A gentleman who purchased nil his sauce, once

Joshua Leavitt and J. W.
Alden propose to pub
lish a daily paper in Boston, by the title of
TIIR MORNING CHRONICLE.
The Liberty Parly in .Massachusetts now requires the
aid of a daily paper, and to meet this want , and give it
the influence of a thorough business newspaper, at a chea
per rate than the mercantile papers now in existence, is
the design of the present undertaking. For this purpose,
we nr.ipose to furnish a Mon ni ng paper, of the sue of
' l'le Lvening Journal, with the ship news and all the com-
i mercial intelligence, for
l ive Hollars a Year.
As it is our object to secure the widest possible circula
tion we intend to give systematic attention to such local
mailers as'will create a largo demand fur sale in the streets

In politics, the Morning Chronicle will aim tn advance
all the great interests of tho country, by a judicious and
impartiil policy, and especially by taking out of the
strifes of party and the fluctuations of the political lottery
the important questions connected with Commerce, Fi
nance, and Currency.
These questions should be settled by mutual consulta
tion, and calm deliberation, for the good of the whole, so
as to give stability and safety to all departments of busi
ness. The changes of the lat twenty years have been
the greatest disasters.
The Chronicle will promote, by all proper means, the
only satisfactory reform in the postage, by urging the a
doption of the Biitish System, 60 successfully tried in our
mother country , to wit, a uniform rate for all distances,
and Two Cents Postage.
But the grand leading object of the paper will be, to
aid in giving the speediest triumph to that glorious enter
prise, the peaceful abolition of American Slavery, by-lawful
and constitutional means. For this purpese, we shall
lend a helping hand to all who are laboring faiihfully in
the good cause, especially the political organization
The Liberty Party.
This parly, organised in 1840, and gathering nearly
seven thousand tried and faithful voters out of the whirl

ever since, and now numbers upwards of 57,000 voters;!
while tho Conventions, recently held in the Slates
