fact of which every citizen of the Old Dominion
should bo heartily ashamed. By nn Act passed in
1850, a capitation tux whs levied upon the free ne

colonization to Africa, of nil who nre willing to go.
Tho Board was to lie tho Instrument of tho expen

dollars have been taken from tho frco blacks of
Virginia under tho act a great sum of money to
be levied upon the property of that depressed class.

In the New York Evangelist we Hud the follow
fug statistics illustrating tbo intelligence of the
Old Dominion :
"Sunday ScnooLs ix Virginia. At tho Sunday
school Convention, which was held in Lynchburg,
Va., in the month of Juno, u conunitteo of twelve!
clergymen and laymen, representing nil the fix1
evangelical denominations in tho town, wasap-j
pointed to prepare an address in behalf of the
great cause of Christian education in Suutli-wes-,
torn Virginia. It has been published, nnd presents
some suggestive statistics. 'According to tbo cen-j
sua of I860 the present enliro whitu population of,
the State is about 071,770. Of these thcro are,;
over 20 years of age, about 152,832; of whom there
are who cannot read about 80,10, That is nearly
one in Cvo of all the grown whites of the State.
"Whero will these adults learn to read, if not in
the Sunday-School? They are too old, or too poor, j
or too proud to attend any other. But again,
there are this year in Virginia, of young povsons
between 5 aud 20 years of age, about 379,8-15; of
'whom there are at school or collcgeouly about 111,-!
327; leaving as attending no school of nny kind,
208,410: that is, lor every young person in the
Stato between 5 and 20 yoars of ago receiving any
instruction, thero are two others who receive cone!
In other words, two-thirds of that portion of our
population who are -to bocomo cilizeiis within the
next fifteen years, are, in these most precious years
of tbeir history, going totally untaught.
"These facts, we say, nro startling. One in five
of. the grown w'hite persons of tho Old Dominion

become citizens in tho next fifteen yoars, going

Presidential Spite. Tho New York Herald
relates an incident which illustrates the Presidents
manners. He is as ill tcmpored and spiteful a he
is servile and pruslavery.
"At the President'"! levoo. on Friday evening, a
scene was enacted which was not in the bill. Sen
ator Hale of New llampsbiro, who hud taken oc
casion a short time since to lampoon tho President
most unmercifully, from his seat in tho Senate, cal
led with thousands of others, to pay his respects
to the chief magistrate. With his face wreathed
in smiles and a lovely woman on his arm, ho ap
proached his Excellency in the blue room, in the
presence of a crowd of spectators. Mr. President
received the lady with marked courtesy, but having
done so, he wheeled upon his heel with the most
porfoet nonchalance right about face presenting
the New Hampshire Senator with a full view of his
back. Here wns a tableau worthy of tho artist's
pencil. 'Gloriously done,' exclaimed Colonel For
ney, who had bcon watching tho movements of the
dramatis persona;."
A Word from tue South. Tho Presbyterian
Witness of Knoxville Tennessee has the following
.condemnation of sum? of the inseparable incidents
of Slavery. Referring to a memorial to the Vir
ginia Legislature to prevent the separation of
parents and children, the EJitor says:
We tru6t the memorial reforred to, will be pre
sented to the Virginia Legislature, and that it will
accomplish the object at which it aims. It is a
great shame that parents and young children are
Allowed to be separated by slave-dealers and un
scrupulous masters. It is a shame that the mar
riage relation among slaves is not recognized, and
that they are not allowed the privilege of an edu
cation. Eosry conscientious Christian master feels
that tbe slave-laws of the South, as regards these
inatters, are unjust and wicked, and he would
gladly eee th"m changed. Why might not the
e$4lur of Tennessee tuko some judicious step
in that fraction? The fire-eater, and that person
ification of all meanness, the negro-driver, nni
perhaps a few hayd-beortod pastors would object ;
but we are satisiied the grea: mass oi goou
svitisens would sustain their representatives in sue!;
A Slave Mother's estimate ok Slavery. What
a fearful transaction was that in Citrcinnati on
Monday, when the frenzied slave mother slew ber
own child rather than see it consigned again to
Kentucky Slavery. Where is the humanity of the
Amerioan people that they consent to send back
scaped families, fathers mothers and children to
no terribly dreaded a doom T That mother knows
what Slaver; is, and lather than see her children
the viotims of its wrongs welcomes death death
by ber maternal bands, as the choicest legacy she
can confer upon then.
Let the spirit of this despairing mother soize
upon her oppressed race over the South aud the
whole Union cannot enslave tbeni.

Great excitement existed throughout the city
(ho whole of yesterday, In consqucnce of tho ar
rest of a party of slaves, and tho murder of her
child by a sUve mother, while tho officers were in
the act of waking the arrest. A party of seven
teen slaves escaped from Boone and Kenton coun
ties, in Kentucky, (about sixteen miles from the
Ohio,) on Sunday night list, and taking with them
two horses and a sled, drove that night to tho Ohio
river, opposite to Western Row, in this city. Leav
ing tho horses and sled standing there, they cross
ed the river on loot on the ice.
Five of them woro the slaves of Archibald K.

and six of Lovl F. Dnughcrty, of Kenton county.

About 7 o'clock this morning tho masters uu
their agents arrived in pursuit of thoir property

hands of Deputy L. S. Marshal, l.eo. S. Bem.ct,
who obtained information that they were in a house
belonging to a son of Jo. Kite, tho third house be-
yor.d Miltercek
Tho son was formerly owned in
tho neighborhood from which they had escaped
and was bought from slavery by his father.
About 10 o'clock the Deputy U. S. Marshal pro
ceeded there with his posse, including tho slave
owners and their ngent and Major Murphy, a Ken
tuckian, and a large slave bolder. Kite was call
ed out and agreed to open tho door, but afterwards
refused, when two Kentucky officers, assisted by
some of the Deputy Marshals forced it, whereupon
the young negro man Simon, the father of the chil
dren, lired a revolver threo times btfore ho was
overpowered. By one of these shots special Mar
shal John Patterson, who raised his arm to reach
the pistol, had two of his fingers of his right hand
shot off, the bull afterwards striking his lip.
In tho house were found four adults, viz: old
Simon and his wife, and young Simon and his wife
and four children of the latter, the oldest near six
ycus and the youngest a bubo of about nine
months. One of these, however, was lying on the
floor dying, its head cut almost entirely off. There
was also a gash about four inches long in the
throat of tho eldest, and a wound on tho head of
the other boy.
The officers state that when they questioned the
boys about their wounds they said the folks threw
them down and tried to kill them.
The young woman, Peggy, and her fiuv children
belonged to Marshall, and her husband and the
old manSinion and tho old woman Mary toG.iines.

Gaiues appeared to claim his negroes. Marshall
wns represented by bis son, but as be has uo power
of attorney from his father, the case was postpon
ed until 9 o clock this morning, in order to give
him time to supply this omission.
The fugitives were then taken to the Hammond
street station Iiuuso to lie kept over night. Tho
Marshal attempted to get a hack to carry them
there, but the crowd frightened all tho hackincn
that were called so that they declined. They were
afraid their carriages would be broken .by the
About an hour after they were taken thero, Mr.
Gaines came along with the dead body of the mur
dered child. Ho was taking it to Covington for in
terment that it might rest in ground consecrated
to slavery.
About 3 o'clock a habeas corpus was issued by
Juago Btirgoyne, and put into the bands of Depu
ty Sheriff Jeff. Buckingham. IIo went down to
he Hammond street Station IIouso, accompanied
by a posse, and took possession of the fugitives.
Deputy Marshal Bcnnet refused at fi3t to give
them up, but at length, after consulting with May.
or Farran, came and agreed to compromise ty
permitting them to bo lodged for safe keeping in
the county jail. During this debate, Lieut. Hazcn
who has chargo of Hammond street Station House
refused to ndmit the gentleman who swore out the
habeas corpus. When Gaines, the master, came
along ho was freely admi'tcd, and this gentleman
walked in behind hiui, but was seized by Lieu.
Hazen and put out.
Deputy Sheriff Buckingham having put tho fugi
tives in a 'bus, got in himself, and directed it to
be driven to the juil, but Mr. Bennet jumped on
tbe box and ordered the driver to drive to the U.S.
Court Rooms. Here another fuss ensued, nnd Ben
net by tho assistance of special Marshals, run the
fugitives up into his office. But Buckingham sent
for Sheriff Brashears. and a largo force, and by
, these they were re-taken nnd finally lodged in tho
county jail about 8 o'clock last evening.
They aro now in tbo sustody ol tho Sheriff, r.nd
it is said will not bo forthcoming to attend Com
missioner Pendery's Court this morning.
Judge Burgoyno, after issuing the writ, started
to Culumbus. It is presumed he will.be back at
11 o'clock this morning, the hour at which the
writ is returnable.
Coroner Menzies held an inquest yestesday af.
ternoon on the body of the murdered slave child.
Its throat appeared to have been cut by a sing'e
stroke of a knife, and it died a few minutes after
the arrest. Mr. Sutton, who lives next door to
Kite's, testified that after the other slaves were ar
rested by the officers, Mr. Gaines, the master, took
this child aud was in the act of carrying it off
when objections were made to it being removed
before an inq Most was held. He at length surren
dered it to Mr. Sutton, in whose arms it died.
The inquost was not concludod, but will be re
sumed at 9 o'clock this morning, at the Coroner'e

Truth Stranuer than Fiction. A few days
since, in conversation with tapt. Alexander Scott,
ono of tho pioneers in the steamboat business oi
the est, ho gave ua tho fulloaiug facts, which
illustrate the adago that "truth is stranger than
fiction." In November, 1827, he was desceudiug
the Mississippi iu command of tho steamer Amer
ica, laueii with a valuable cargo of tobacco, lead
and furs, the latter article alone worth $00,000.
When rear Plumb Point tho steamer struck a
snag aud sank iu deep water. The furs wore for
the most part recovered, but tho bout, with the rest
of her cargo, was abandoucd as a total loss. Years
passed, and tho remembrance of tho America's
fata had faded from the recollection of all, except,
perhaps, tliu.t vcnorablo individvual, "the oldest in
habitant," It is well known that the curicnt of
tho Mississippi frequently changes, so that what
was once tho channel of that noblo stream after
ward became terra firma, susceptible of cultivation.
This was the case w ith the siio of the America's
wreck. The channel near Plumb Point became
an island, on which, for eight years, luxuriant
crops of Indian corn woro raised : but recently the
wayward current of tho Father of Waters took
another turn, and commenced washing awny tbe
earthly formation, until the America was again ex
posed to tlio light of day. The lead in her hull, it
is supposed, will be all recovered in good condition
the tobacco, it is fair to presume, will be slightly
the worso for wet. She was sunk on the 17th of
November, 1827, and consequently was imbedded
for twenty-eight years. I'its.Post.

in England, out of 50,000,000 acres cultivated.
10,000,000 are son with wheat or other cereals;
whilo in France 50,000,000 are cultivated for the
latter purpose. Tlio averago growth of wheat per
acre in England is four quarters, or thirty-two
bushels; in France one and threo-fifths, or nearly
thirteen bushels Tho produce of English land per
aero is about JC3 Is., nnd that of France about ill
12s. per aero. The number of sheep is about the
same in both countries, viz : u0,000,000, and the
wool produced about 00,000 tuns ; but owing to
the difference in the average, there is something
less than one-and-a-half sheep per acre in England,
and only about oiic-tbird of a sheep per ncro in

Slavery Abolished in Egypt. Of the advance
made of late years by the Mohammedan nations
toward civilization, there is no stronger proof thau
their repudiation of domestic Slavery, for which
the Mohammedan religion, especially in its doc-
triue ot the plurality ot wives, holds out many
temptations and inducements. Yet Slavory, with
in a few years past has been formally abolished by
tho Bey of Tunis ; it has been greatly restricted
in Turkey ; and now, nccording to tho following
paragraph from Galignani's Messenger, it has been
abolished also in Egypt :
"A letter from Alexandria states that the Egyp
tian Government has recently put into execution
tho decision come to by the Divan relative to the
abolition of Slavery. "Not only is it not allowed
any longer to buy or sell slaves in Egypt, but all
those in possession of private individuals were in
formed that they were free."
