PLANTATION SKETCHES. "
How the Colored People Enjoyed Their
First Taste of Freedom.
Vhen I first honored the state of
Florida with my presence some twelve
years ago, the negro was a constant
source of iiruusemcnt to me, gays a
writer in The Detroit Free Press. His
ways were so different, his actions so
childlike and bland, his idea of freedom
so extraordinary, his ignorance so
grotesque and appalling, that it was
Letter than a circus to watch him in
his goings to and fro. Freedom made
a striking revolution in the colored
race socially; they tried at once to drop
all their former catch-words of famili
arity, and adopted the most extravagant
and elaborate forms of courtesy.
Among themselves it was "lady"
and -gentlemen," "Mr." and "Mrs.,"
and all the ceremonies and genuflexions
in use among the former slaveholding
aristocracy were at once adopted as
their own, without any regard to the
eternal fitness of things.
I was riding , through lie sLrects of
Tallahassee one beautiful morning
with ex-United States Senator Conover,
w ho was , theq state treasurer and
owner of a fine plantation a few miles
from town, when a scene occurred that
has never faded from my memory.
It had somehow became town, talk
that Dr. Conover was looking out for
hands to assist him In wasting seed on
his plantation, and when we got oppo
site the postoflico wo were halted by aii
old colored auntie with: "Oh, Dr.
Conover! Oh, Dr. Conover! stop a
minute, please, sah!"
By her side was a most dilapidated
specimen of colored humanity in a state
of looped and windowed raggedness.
In fact,, any respectable western corn
field scarecrow would liaye indignantly
refused to exchange garments with him
without heavy boot. The old auntie
had him by the hand, and as we drew
up to the sidewalk she said: "Dr.
Conover, I done heerd ye wanted to
get some gentlemen to wnk on yer
place, and 1 done sent for dish yer
gentleman to come to town so's ye
eould get him." After a little con
versation tho contract was made and
the gentleman went out to the planta
tion to pick cotton and steal corn with
the rest of the gentlemen.
The negroes, male and female, were
passionately fond of line clothing
and finery of every description, and
would invest all the money they could
earn in articles of personal adornment.
I was . told by one of the city milliners
that the finest and most expensive bon
nets she brought to the city were pur
chased by tliu negro women. The
white ladies were satisfied to dress
more in consonance with the reduced
state of their finances, but her
colored sister was content, if she had
a gorgeous head-gear, to let the rest of
her graceful person go arrayed in ple
beian calico. A lot of colored ladies
congregated at some street corner
would exhibit a dazzling assortment of
ribbons, laces, feathers, and bright
colors. With them freedom meant to
step at once from the monotony of the
cottonfield to the dressing-room of the
petted darlings of society and fashion,
and a foot apparently eighteen inches
in length would often coyly peep out
from beneath a brilliant blue silk
One Sunday morning I was riding
out on the roa'd toward Kellair, when I
met a gentleman of the colored persua
sion on his way to church.
He was clothed in a glossy dress suit
of black such as the Hebrew children
love to pass off on the unsophisticated
African as genuine broadcloth, and
fitting "like the paper on the wall."
His neck was encircled by a Cal
Wagner collar and a flaming crimson
scarf, a high silk hat crowned his noble
brow, and to cap the climax, he was

Into tho circle, all hor sins are washed
away, and she is so violently happy
that she wants to go right straight up to
heaven. Somo fall as if in a trance,
the voice of the exhorter takes on a
sterner tone, and the excitement be
comes more intenso. Then succeeds
a calm; nearly all are converted, and
are exhausted As a finale they strike
up something like the following:

Saturday was tho negro's natural
holiday, and on that day Tallahassee
was full of them of all classes, condi
tions, colors, and sizes. Some crowded
the slores.some of them held impromptu
business meetings on the corners. Oc
casionally there was a "butting" be
tween two stalwart "coons" unduly
exnited bv cheao whisky. Amonr
others tho political situation was dis
cussed with all the earnestness and
solemnity of old-time statesmen.
The negroes would spend their money
in very funny ways, for any article that
took their fancy. One of them fell in
love with a largo bottle of cucumber
pickles, price f 1. It had some fancy
emblems on which pleased his artistic
eye so he bought it, and out of curiosity I
followed him to see what disposition ho
would make of the contents. He went
out under a tree in the public square,
deliberately sat down with his precious
bottie, uncorked it, and in the gravest
and most dignified manner imaginable
ale every pickle it contained and then
drank the vinegar.
Hurt him? Why, certainly not! It
had no more effect on him than a glass
of whisky wrould have on a professional
drinker, and I expect he is in Leon
county now ready at any time to vote
for "de good ole 'publican party."
Sometimes two old lady friends would
meet unexpectedly and the following
conversation would ensue:
With an elaborate bow. "Why, Mis'
Williams! Good morniu,1 ma'am, how
is yer health dis mornin,' ma'am?"
"Right poorlv, Mis' Brown, I thank
you, ma'am. I'se done got a sort of
missery on my back, but I don' com
plain much, please God! How is you
and Elder Brown an' de ohillen,
"Tollable; only tollable, Mis' Wil
liams. Mr. Brown has a sorter risin'
on his hand, but the doctor he tole him
to put 'arnachy on hit, an' hit's right
smart better now."
"I s'pose you heerd my darter 'Liza
gwino get married nex' month."
"Why, no Mis' Brown, you s'prise
me! 'Who she gwino marry Mis'
"Why, a gentleman who works on
Maj. G 's plantation. He's a class
leader, too, au' kiu bent 'em all hoiler
in' in prayer. I knows de Lord imis'
hear him! Good-by, ma'am, loti mus
come an' see us."
Thank von. I feel proud to do so,
Mis' Brow n, ma am. And so they
separate, each to their litilo world.
What I judged to bo a favorite
amusement among them was to catch
a rat, saturate it witli kerosene, set tire
to it and then turn it loose.
I once saw the waiters at one of the
hotels have a large rat, a regular
etoran, which thev tried bv the ordeal
of lite in the rear of the hotel. After
soaking -him thoroughly in kerosene
they set lire to him, ami started mm on
run down tne patn. narring uie

it himself after he got used to it. I no

About 9 o'clock one night I was
strolling along one of the back streets,
when 1 heard the sound of music, both
vocal and instrumental.
On turning the corner I saw an an
cient negro in company with a small
boy sitting on the edge of the walk.
The man was playing on a banjo with
only two strings, and singing a song,
which run as near as I can remember:
De rubliit. iiui a eimnln' t'lng,
He hide heself in do briar.
An' be never know when truhble come
Till tho broom-grass catch on fire.
Chorus, expressive of consternation
on the part of the lepus cuniculas:
mgeyeil a ruiioit, noo,
liitreyod u rabbit, boo, etc.
The negro very early in freedom
developed a surprising enthusiasm over
patent medicines, especially in me
shape of pills, and his faith in them
rose to the sublime, rso matter wnai
ailed himold-fashioned, universal
"misery." cut linger, sore toe, or any
thing else a done of pills was trie
first thought, a refuge in every storm.
The negro was always impatient of
results and preferred cathartic pills to
any other kind of medicine, and, as
most of his ills either arose from over
feeding or were imaginary, the pills
answered all purposes.
Martial music was the glory of the
negro, nnd never failed to touch his
heart. On Saturdays, when the town
was full of country negroes with their
wives and sweethearts, cousins, uncles,
and aunts, let some dusky warrior
produce a drum, take his position iu the
middle of the road, strike up a tuna,
and a procession would soon w. formed
marching steadily for hours, with no
object in view save to be behind tha
music. Anil as tho drum rolled out its
stirring music upon the air.tuen, women,
and children w ould form in ranks and
follow where it led. Happy in tho su
preme idea of liberty, giving no thought
to the morrow, trusting the future willi a
blind, unreasoning faith, no happior
race ever gave a more picturesque out
lino to history.

An Earthquake Romance.
Count Jeppi, who possesses and en
ormous fortune and one of ilio oldest
titles of the ralalinate.had made a love
match. His young wife was the daugh
ter of Prince Cinella, ethereal as a Ra
phael and radiant and blonde as a Tit
ian. During eight months of the year
tho happy couple were in the habit of
living at 'Florence. Wlieu the grosses
choleurs began they went to his coiiuat
little villa, draped with vino branches,
on the side of the mountain and near
the sea at at Casamieciola. One even
ing last July tho Count left his wife
after dinner to ramble, according to
his custom, along the seashore. The
night was superb.
Suddenly tho earth trembled as if
shaken by the march of an invisible
army of giants. The sky became over
cast with black clouds, aud the ground
cracked open emitting blasts of sul
phurous smoke. The Count was thrown
upon his face senseless. When lie be
came conscious his first thought was of
his young wife. He retraced his steps
through the village now a mass of
smoldering ruins, mangled humanity,
and burnt men and beasts. Cries arose
on every side: "Padre! Medre! Figlio!
Jesu! M"aria Santissima!" Each stone
seemed to wail and moan. With cold
sweat dropping from his temples Count
Jeppi stepped over dead bodies and
climbed up walls of tottering houses,
with the solo thought, "Shall I arrive
flu time?'! At the corner of a street a
hand, still trembling, projected above
a mass of ruins, and a plaintive voice
was heard crying for help. Count Jep
pi dared not stop. He turned his head
aside and hurried past. After having
missed his way, and having twenty
times crossed and rccrossed his steps.
Count Jeppi at last arrived before what
had once been his villa. A narrow end
of a wall was all that remained, stand
ing in tho corner of w hic h there remain
eiC quietly hanging from its nail, a
gilded wicker cage containing a young
dove which had been the favorite pet
of the Countess. The Count felt him
self becoming feeble as a little child as
he gazed upon the terrible debris.
Suddenly he thought he heard a
voice. The voice seemed to come from
a great distance. Ho strained every
nerve. The voice was heard again.
He recognized it as that of his wife. "I
will save her," said the Coiiut, and at
once went to work, lie fell upon his
knees and began to dig into the smok
ing ruins with his hands. The fine hot
plaster seemed to run through his
fingers like water. Hu lifted up with
hi.s'bleeiliug and burning bauds heavy
stones and blocks that fell back again,
jamming and bruising him fearlully.
The distant feeble voice, guideu mm.
Suddenly it ceased. He had been work
ing for nearly an hour. With the ex
ertion of despair he redoubled his la
bors. Just as he was about to faint
away from exhaustion the debris on
which he was standing caved in and
revealed an empty space tilled with
smoke. Count Jeppi jumped into it,
and, stretching out his arms, felt about
in every direction. His hand at last
touched something soft and clammy.
It was the dead body of his young wife.
He passed his hand softly over tho
face. Tho mouth whs opened, the eyes
were closed and the hair was tangled
and matted over tliu forehead. Car
ressing in tho darkness the golden
tresses, he exclaimed: "If you are still
alive, speak or make some movement."
Being convinced of his wife's death he
tried to lift her out of the terrible tomb
in which he had found her.
Seizing her by the shoulders he tried
to raise Tier up. But she seemed to
have become terribly heavy, as if an
enormous weight was attacned to her
feet. At last, with one .supreme effort,
lie dragged the body near the opening.
But scarcely had ho done o when the
bereaved husband uttered a cry like
that of a maniac. His w ife pressed to
her heart the corpse of a man who had
his right arm thrown about the fragile
waist, while his left held in its rigid
grasp a white rose that had not yet
withered. 'The head was crushed and
no feature was recognizable. The man
wore no ring, and no clue of any kind
could be discovered. The next day the
bodies were exposed to the villagers.
The Count stated that he believed that
he had found the body of a long-lost
friend, and he offered 20, lire to
any one who would make known and
prove the identity of the stranger's
corpse. But all in vain. The Count
had the bodies buried separately iu the
cemetery of Casamieciola, and is still
seeking to discover the identity of the
man who had stolen from him his

It is often said specifically that men
of affairs, as a class, have lost their
interest in the churches, and an attempt
was lately made to test the truth of
this assertion. In an Eastern city, with
a population of little less than forty
thousand, the president and cashier of
one of the national banks were re
quested to furnish a list of the fifty,
strongest business linns in the city, with
the name of the head of each firm. The
gentlemen furnishing the list had no
knowledge whatever of the use that
was to be made of it. In classifying
fifty-four names thus given, it was
found that thero were seven whose re
lation to the churches was unknown to
the gentlemen who had obtained the
list; six who were not identified with
anv of them: and fortv-one who were
all regular attendants upon the church
es and generous supporters of their
work the great maioritv of them
communicants. In a Western city of a
little more than sixty thousand inhabit
ants, a similar list of fifty-two names
was obtained in the same way: and the
analysis showed three whose ecclesia
stical standing was unknown; one Jew
six not connected with churches; urn
fOrty-two regular ehurch-goors.of whom
tninv-one were coiniiuiiiicanis. incra
lists wero both made up by well-inform
ed nnd siurae'ious business men:the cities
represented bv them arc not con
spicuouslv religious communities; am!
the composition of them gives small
color to tho notion that the business
men of our cities are estranged from
tho churches. It is astonishing that
such a notion should ever havo gained
currency, in the face of tho palpabl
fact that so much money Is contributed
every year for tho support of the
churches and the prosecution of their
charitable nnd missionary enterprises,

Executions in Cuba,
The following is bu interesting de
scription of the execution of a crim
inal by the garrote, in Havana, Cuba:
Arriving at the foot of tho platform
tho death sentence was again read, and
tho alguacil do cortes corresponding
to our sheriff asked the prisoner if ho
had anything to say to the people. He
merely shook his head by way of reply,
aud was at once seated, hts legs tied
and his arms pinioned, with the hand
crossed on his breast, and the collar
fixed about his neck. At this point of
tho proceedings the verdugo pulled
from his person a long, bright knife,
and handed it to tho police who were
present. A black cap was then drawn
over the prisoner's face and tho priests
began to recito the "Credo. v nen
they came to the words, "His Only
Sou," the verdugo, by a swift and dex
terous turn of the lever, launched the
soul of the poor wretch into eternity.
There was but a momentary quiver of
the limbs aud a straightening of the
form, then all was still, for the man
was stono dead. Ihemodeof punish
ment is far more merciful than the hid
eous and bungling performances fre
quently gone through with at our gib
The troop then wheeled into column
and marched away to the beat of
drums, and now came the strange se
quel to this dismal spectacle. As soon
as the ground was cleared one of tho
police went forward and, seizing the
verdugo, arrested him for murder, hur
rying htm to tne prison where tue
feuzgado wero still assembled, riac-

of having killed a man, and denounced
him as a murderer. The judge asked
him w hat he had to say in answer to
"It is true," replied the verdugo,
"that I killed the prisoner, but I deny
being a murderer, for, although I com
