The Slaves at the South in these Secession Times.
NATCHEU, Miss., Jan. 4, 1861.
I hava spent a few days on the plantations.
I may speak of them In some detail belore I get
through with thi) letter; but let me seise the
present moment to point to salient facts, con
nected with the present excitement whioh hava
passed under my own eyps, and, from good
source?, into my ears. '
. Although a patrol Is kept up, still Ihe negroes
hereabouts, as ten to one, are loyal to their mas
ters, and inveterate against the North. How
this has been brought about, may be a lair mat
ter tor speculation i but that tbe fact so exists I
know Irom personal observation and conversa
tion with the bUcks. Freedom would be ac
ceptable to them, say tbe more lutelligent, but
thay feel that they are laftr at the South. I
have heard very many speak this and it moans
an expression of the dependent seutiment upon
tbe protection of their masters in the event of
a war or any trouble. The more enlightened of
these servants speak freely, and , cunning though
the negro Is, he could hardly deceive me in tbe
expression with which ho or she utters what I
have digested. A few anecdotes:
At breakfast, this morning, Miasfer ppeaks:
"Yea, yes, the negroes, I suppose, must be
free! Here now is Emeliue (a neat waitress) she
is perfectly delighted with the pro-pec!,; and Ed
(a smart coachman) he will make a fortuno in
the North!" Emeline "Not , Indeed! I'm as
free as want to be. I wants to stay, I does,
where I knows de folks, and where I am sure of
somebody to take care of mo." EJ "For my
part, Bir, I'ee no faith in the Abolitionera
Niggers freezes and starves in tbe North."
After breakfust the writer corners Ed in the
ooach house. "Ed, you didn't mean a word you
said at breakfast this morning. It was fear of
your master You would jump with Joy to be
free, Ed." "jNo, indeed, you are much mista
ken I am happy, will supported, and love my
employment. My family are well cared for,
and I could not suppont even myself half ad
well," is the substance of his reply. "Ed, if
tbe North comes here to attack your master ,what
will you do?" I'ueUe reply "Give mo a gun,
sir, and den you'd see. I'd die a thousand
times over master, for mistress, for any ob de
family and no body but a d d rascally nigger,
or mean white trasu, would do anything else."
His manner was vehement.
Negiots are in the habit here of setting traps
to catch prowling Abolition usJcrgrcuuders. I
have seen several Irresistibly proven cases of
this sort, presented by masters to my notioe.
The field negroes, as one hundred to one (on di
reot appeals made to them) have declared them
selves (I speak altogether of Mississippi and of
this vioinity) in favor of their homes and con
dition in the South, to the freedom which, they
imagine, Mr. Lincoln iBto procure for them by
war, and the slaughter of their masters. Tbat
the plauters believe this, is evident from the
unprotected manner in which they sleep among
them; their reliance on the patrol being esti
mated by its scanty numbers, makes it apparent
that this has ocly reference to tba suspected
few among the blacks, who, a strange fact are
never of the most intelligent.
One of tbe largest and most respectable plan-
tere here told me that some of his negroes said
to him, "Are we free? If so, we want wages"
His reply was, "I don't know. I'll drum ud the
bands (some 175 in number) and we will go to
Natohee and consult the-lawyere ana see about
it." He did so, and but seven of the whole nam-
expressed a wish even to investigate tbe sub
ject. They discussed the matter (says my re-
pecUblo informant) in bis presence, snd such
arguments were used as tbis: "Suppose we are
free. Tbe lazy negroes who wont work will
steal our truck, and we'll have them to take
oare of, or murder." There is no doubt of tbe
truth of this anecdote, viz: Mr. G , of this conn
tv. is seriously troubled for money. Ho worke
tie summoned tuem and said, "Boys and
girls, you'll have to be free. I can't afford to
buy meat for you. Tbe North makes so much
troublo, and are such good friends to you, you'd
better go up there." iheir reply was, "We
can live very well on bread and vegetables till
times change; if we go North who is to take
care of us?" "But then, boys, I owe you mon
ey (for extra services and delicacies raised and
sold by the Blaves to tbeir masters) how about
that; 1 can't pay. "Ua, you don't owe us
much) that's nothing." The information on
which the above Is based is indisputable.
And yet the negro is neither affectionate nor
generous. Me Bcema to nave tbe fidelity of the
dog if you will allow an illustrative expres
sionlor it is an "master" with him, even
though be is rhipped once a week for evident
faults. Tbe other night a pert house servant
was engagd in keeping a savage dog from a
white man who came to stay, if be could, over
night in tbe plantation house, (as is often done
by way-farcrs.) When tbe bound was control'
led, fompey tnus majestically and patronizing
ly addressed tho plebeian : "Served you right!
What business have you In a gentleman's
yard ?" Although tbis much amused tbe fam
ily, still I'ompey was cuSVd severely for his
Such appears to be tbe tone of tbe Southern
negro in these secession times. How aolual
hostilities, long protracted, and with varying
fortunes, might affoct him, one cau hardly judge;
but on tbe sligbtcBt evidence of revolt, undoubt
edly they would bo massacred .
[From the Chicago Times.]
An Hour in a Packing House.
Yef terday morning we spent an hour in tbe
packing house of Messrs. Flint & Siearns, on
South Clark Street, tiesr Tweltib. It Is not
generally understood to how great an extent the
pork packing business has entered into the trade
and capitol of Chicago. There are several of
these houses In thla city aud its environs, em
ploying an immenae capital.
i ni Dciug me case, tnoseoi our readers wbo
know nothing of tbe modut operandi by which
one packing house can dispose of a thoutund
hogt in a day, will doubtless be pleased to ac
company, us in our savory visit.
Upon l&e outside of a large and substantial
brick building, the eye discovers a winding
track, leading ft om tbe hog yard to the upper
part of the building. Up tbis inclined plane a
stream ot live nogs are lazily groping tbeis
way. Arriving at tbe top tney enter tbe slaught
er bouse a pen, twelve or fifteen feet square.
In tbla pen stands a roan, swinging with bis
muscular arms a pondrous sledge hammer. At
each blow a hog falls senseless. Two men arm
ed with long knives, follow him, and finish the
work of butchery by severibg the arteries of
tbe neck. Tbis done, tbe poor hog is slid
through a trap door into a vat of scalding water,
kept constantly at almost boiling heat by steam
pipes passing through tbe bottom. The hog is
floated along to tbe opposite end of tbe tank,
where a pair of tongs, (what else shall we call
them,) operated by a ' lever, picks him op aud
deposits him upon a long table, upon each side
of wbicb is ai ranged a long row ot men, (sera
pets,) who turn out- the hog at the far end of
the table In a Btnie of nudity. Tfcero are not
far from Moot tbeso scrapers, not one of whom
are idle for a slnglo moment. As soon as a hog
emerges from (be vat, the one that preceded
him Is passed to the &ext scraper, continuing
his journey from one end to another as each suc
cessive porker follows after. ,
At the end of the (able he is suspended upon
a revolving crane. A pailful of water, dexter
ously applied, gives bis carcass a sleek and
cleanly appearance. Meanwhile be swings
around la front of a savage looking man, arm
ed with a terrible knife, sleeves rolled up to his
shoulders, and besmered with blood from head
to foot. At one sweep of tbat knife the hog
opened and the inwards removed. Another
pailful of water prepares the carcass for the
cuttlns block, A truck. having Droieoted arms.
Is then trundled op to the crane, and by simply
raising the bands, the persons in charge receives
tbe carouss upon the extreme end of tbe
arms, and it Is then easily transferred to the
hooks, where it is left to cool.
Tbis entire operation Is to simplo snd yet so
complete, that not a hand touches his pork ship
during the operation of being transferred. The
bogs are usually allowed to cool off duiing the
night, when they are taken to tbe cutting block,
where two men with' cleavers Droceed to pre
pare them for salting down. Fourteen blows
generally suffice for each hog, when the several
parts are thrown into a hopper and passed
through the floor to the next story below, where
tbe packers andsattera put the pork into barrels
and tho coopers finish the job by heading them
up. After the pork baa had time to settle and
dry, the brine is foured in from a vat in wbicb
it is manufactured.
Tbe packing season usually lasts about three
months.!Sinoe the commencement of the present
season, about the middle of November, Messrs.
Flint & Stearns hav killed and packed about
13,000 bogs. Tho average net weight of these
have been S30 lbs, an increase of 100 lbs
head upon tbe average of last year.
About seventy-nve men are employed in mis
establishment, at from one to three dollars per

terhouse. Ono would naturally suppose that
the butchery of 1,000 bogs in a day would de
luge the buildit g with offal; but the truth Is in
strong contrast with uch a supposition. Every
appliance which intimity could invent, has
been introduced throughout the establishment,
so tbat order and cleanliness are ogreeably ap
parent. Within the buildirjg huge stacks of bams and

on tier of barrels Of pork, hams and lard are

A Warning Voice from Virginia—Let Not the
North be deceived.
Tbe following articlo from the Richmond
Whig, one of the ablest and moa conservative
papers in tbe.Stetc, should cemmehd itself to
every lover of tbe Uuion:
Wo would fain hope that neither the North
ern Legislatures nor the Northern people are,
In any wise, deceived in regard to tne real feel
iog existing at tho South. And yet all their
recent acts and utterances seem to indicate an
utter failure on their pirt to comprehend the
condition of public sentiment in.tbis seotion of
But let up. again proclaim to them, as we have
often dona bereiore, tbat there ia so essential
difference of opinion among the Southern peo
ple, as to the grievances they have suffered at
the hat.ds of tbe North. Tbe only real differ
ence that does exist, or has existed among them
on this subject, is as to the means ot redress.
There are, to be sure, a goodly number ot rank
per te Disunionists; but tbe number of that class
is exceedingly small, especially outside ot a
fe.r of the Gulf States, compared with our
whole population. The great body of the
Sout hern people are stanch and devoted friends
of thejUnion, upon the terms and iu tbe spirit
of the Constitution but tbey are Uniou men in
no other sense and npon no other condition, nor
have they ever been. We belong to this class
ourselves. We have always fondly hoped that
the Union, as founded and banded down to us
by the wise and patriotic Fathers of tbe Repub
lic, would be perpetual. Ic la still tho fervent
and anxious wish of our heart tbat such should
be the case. And such is the feeling and idea,
as wa hare said, of tbe great body of tbe South
Bat, though tbey are unnumbered thousands
of such Union men in the South, there are no
safcmtsstonisii. We believe indeed tbat if Vir
ginia were raked and scraped, there would not
be found a hundred persons within all her bor
ders, wbo could reasonably be classed asu6
mtist'oniiO. There ia a stern and universal de
termination, ammg all tbe citizens of the State,
to inaist now either upon an equitable and final
let lltment of the slavery controversy, or upon a
prompt and eternal separation between the
North and South. While preferring the former,
we are yet willing to meet the consequences of
the latter, if forced npon us. We lock upon
civil war as a terrible calamity, but upon dis
honor and degredation as a calamity a thousand
Let not the Northern States and people,
then, be deceived. Let them realize at ouce
that the South presents two alternatives eith
er a prompt and satisfactory adjustment of the
pending difficulties, or sepiriion forever. Tbe
fifteen slave States once out of tbe Union, there
can be no reconstruction of the Union, at least
no Sucb reconstruction aa would make tbe Ua
Ion what it now is. This prevaleut idea of i
reconstruction is a mere absurdity, and do man,
iNorth or ooutn, should permit it to delude him
lor a moment.
We truKt, In conclusion, that in thla great
contest, Virginia, tbe proud old mother of
States and statesman, will bear herself with dig
nity, moderation, nrmneas and courage. We I
hope she will nobly vindicate her ancient fame.
and that neither the threats nor the number of!
her enemy will cause here- to swerve a bair'a
breadth from the path of duty and honor. May
she always be right; but, right or wrong, we,

Ayer's Sarsaparil la
A compound remedy, designed to he tho rmt
effectual Alterative that can be made. 'Jt is
a concentrated extract of Pnrn Sarsaimrilln,
so combined with other Kiibstnnre of still
greater alterative power n to n fiord an effec
tive antidote for the diseases Kamparilla is
reputed to cure. It is believed that 'such a
remedy is wanted by those who suffer from
Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove of immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow
citizens. How completely this compound will
do it lias been proven by experiment on many
of tho worst cases to 1m found of tho following
Sciiopi'LA amd Sci'.ori'i.oi's Complaints,
Eruptions and EutiTivE Diseases, Ulceus,
I'iMi'LES, Blotches, Tcttons, Salt Hheum,
Scald Head, Syphilis and Svpiutmc Ar

pepsia AND I.NDI0E9TI0N-, EllYSIPELAS, RoSE
on St. Astiiosy's Fiue, aud indeed tho whole,
class of complaints arising from Impi'kity ov
This compound will be found a great pro
moter of health, when taken in tho spring, to
expel the foul humors which festor in the
blood ot that season of the year. By the time
ly expulsion of them many rankling disorder
are nipped in the bud. Multitudes con, by
tha aid of this remedy, spare themselves fioiii
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
sores, through which the system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of ths body
by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out tho
vitiated blood whenever you find hs impurities
bursting through the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores; cleanse it when you find it is ob
structed and sluggish in tho veins ; cleanse it
whenever it is foul, and your footings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing tha blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
pabulum of lifa disordered, there can bo no
lasting health. Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
life is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsnparilla lias, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends. But
tho world has been cgregiously deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that is claimed
for it, but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the vlrtuo of Sarsaparilla,
or any thing else.
During late years the public havo been mil
led by largo bottles, pretending to give o quin t
of Extract of fjarsaparilla for one dollar. Mo it
of tlieso have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, if any, Sarsapar
rilla, but often no curative properties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
lias followed the uso of the various extracts of
Sarsaparilla which flood the market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
wc call this compound Sarsaparilla, aud intend
to supply such a remedy as shall rescue tha
namo t'rom tho load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And wc tliink wc have ground for
believing it has virtues which arc irresistible
by tho ordinary run of tho diseases it is intend
ed to cure. Li order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to directions on
