It bus ln-cu tiu: ulully said, "time
and tide wait for iio mau." What
great change have taken place
withiu tbe last fifty years, iu tbe
State of MUHtsHippi ! Where are
tbe people who flist settled Matli-
ou county T 1 some nines iook
back with sadness npon tbe past,
and reflect, aud ask myself, Where
are those whom I first iHCime ao
quainted with iu Madison comity,
uearly forty-seven years ago ?
whom I esteemed so highly for
their many virtues, hospitality ami
friendship. Compariiively few are
left to tell the tale; but it is consoling
to know that though I am now au
old man, and shall soon pass away,
we can meet airnin.
The first circuit court that was
held iu Canton was in 1834, in a log
house. I wan there, in search oi
sweet potatoes to sell, there being
none to be bad near where I bad
settled. Canton, now quite a city,
then consisted of a few log bouses
scattered out in a forest. From
Canton east ont to Tililabogoe, few
improvements bad - be n made, and
a more beautiful tract of timber was
bard to find. Now, what is to be
seen t Tbe ravages of war and the
tooth of time.
In 1435 au insurrection plot was
started among the negroes, to com-,
mence on the 4th of July, while the
white men were expected to be cele
orating tbe day of American inde
pendence. Tbe secret was revealed
by a servant giil to her mistress
and several white men aud many
aegroes were bung at Livingston,
Be a to u and Vicksburg. as tbe re'
suit of this a'.teinpt at wholesale
murder. ::-
When I left Virginia, my native
State, in 1833. for tbe Choctaw put-
cbase, in MlssisMpui, it was with
some feelings of regret. To leave
refined society, and a people pro
verbial for hospitality and friend
ship, to settle in a new and thinly
settled country, where I was an en
tire stranger, and to make a living
by digging the ground, where I
thought the social amenities were
little known, required some courage.
I stopped my family near Peail
river aliont the first ot October, and
took a little round to look at tbe
country, going as far-as Jackson. A
few log bouses constituted tbe city
of Jackson iu 1833. I entered laud
aud went to work, building a bouse
and dealing land, where hitherto
the mark of an axe was not to be
fonuil. Ncne but those who have
tried it can form . a correct idea of
tbe hardship and exposnro of fron
tier settlers, lint little was to be
had lo eat, nearer than Vicksburg
or Yazoo City, for love "or money.
It was not. here ; it bad not been
raised. The fiist settlers had made
barely a support, but divided-with
tbe new comers as tar as they could
aud live themselves. I soon found
ont that 1 was- agreeably diap
pointed. A more hospitable peo
ple were not to be found anywhere.
Diring the years 1834, '35 aud
'30, quite a rise took place io im
proved lands, altbnngh plenty ol
public lands were offered at $1.25
per acre." Wi'b the rise ot land
everything else went up. Many I
meu with but little means were en
bled to sell their improred land
aud enter others, at goerumen
prices, and buy some negroes to
help then woik. That cave a new
impetus to business here." Specula
lion soon ran witu.
. From tbe time that I bad been in
tbe State, say two or three years, I
was but little kuown outside ol nt
immediate beiuhboihood... I had lit
lie business Iroin home, ami wanted
none. Ou one. occasion I was at
Madisonrilie and in the store of a
mau by the name of Hubbard be
will please pardon the use of his
name, if alive when Mr. Hubbard
asked me if i did not waot. to buy
some negroes. - I was somewhat
surprised at tbe question, our ac
quaintance being so limited. Said
be, M There are some valaable ue
groes in town, for sale by a trader.'
1 tuld him that I had no- money to
buy with, aud that if X bad. negroes
were selling too high. To this he
replied, - You are sober, indus
trious man, and can soon make the
money raising cotton. I will en
dorse for you and help you out."
I thanked liim for, his kind offer.
