Descending the steep banks to the water thirty feet below, I saw an old ferryman sitting in his boat, with his chin renting upon his left hand, ap parently absorbed iu meditation. A larL'e wiiite crane standing like a stat ue on one l» g on the opposite shore, seemed to be trying to rival him in loiies«>ineness and meditation. The soft earth of the bank gave forth no sound under my horse's feet as I de cendcd, and the old gentleman sat and contemplated until my horse, stepping on the boat, startled him. He rose with a complaisant obeisance aurl his eye* sparkled with the hope of earn ing a few cents. 'Survaut, sir!' said he. He was an aged and venerable ne gro, his head almost as white as wool, but his stout, straight form and full face showed that age had dealt kindly with him. There was something about him that seemed to say that the old man was of jr»>od society and had seen better days. As he pulled me across, 1 said: "I'licle, what do you think of things r' lie turned tome and looked inqnir ingly, and said : 'Of what things, sarvant, sir ?' *Of your crane sitting on the opposite shore, ou one leg?' 'I think that he will POOH fly away.' 'And leave me as other things have left me! There seems to be iimystery about that solemn creature. Ho looks as though tie did not have a friend in the world, lie looks like the spirit of one departed, who has visiteJ his form er haunts and sits melancholy over what he beholds, with his mind far away in the past. Uncle, may not that bo the departed spirit of some one of the rich planteis who once dwelt here about and now stands deploring the desolation that has befallen his estates and chiidien r' The old tuau looked at me, and then looked at the crane, and when he turn ed agaiu I thought I beheld » tear in hiseye. 'lf that is the spirit of my old uidsti r,' said he, looking at the crane suspiciously, 'I know he cau't wish any harm to me. Old master al ways liked old Ned.' And yet he stands with his head tucked under his wing, as if he loved you not. No, s»r, sai.l he, shaking his head and eying the crane, that is not my old master Ood rest him ! The crane pulled his head from under his wing, gave a stately flap, and flew down the dark river, his legs projecting behind him. The old man watched hin* deoart with a sigh of re lief l uc'.e Ned, what do you think of times? said I. Ah, young master, they're not what they was iu the obi timey days. That eranc did shorely put uie thinking. He looked exactly like I feels when I git to thii'kiing of the old timey days. There aiut no sich davs now. I'ncle Ned, does not the sun shiuc as brightly; do not the dews deend ami the rains fall a< regularly; do not the crops grow as well, an J do not the birds sing as sweetly as in the old timey days ? The same (.tod, said he, look* upon us yet. and it rains the same, but the crops ain't what they WHS, and things ain't prospering. Look at the falling down houses and the rotting fences. It 'pears to me there's a blight upon the yeth. I'ncle Neil, what do you think of frt edoin and slavery r Well, sir, I think right straight, I think its about one and t'other. About the only difference I see is that there's more freedom and less to eat; more privilege and less comfort. We »re all slaves anyhow to our hacks ind our bellies. Them's w rse niH*t« r than ever the overset rs was. We didn't have that slavery in slavery times. And 1 till you, young mas., when the nigger git sick now. ihe nigger gwin die Ks, sir, you bear my racket, the nigger gwiti to die. 1 here ain t no old master and old misis now to send for the d«vtor and come and nuss you. If you send U r the doctor now, ten to one he won't come, 'cepting he knows you flighty well, for he know he ain't goin lo get lr.s money. The boat struck the shore and I gave Uncle Neil a silver hait dollar He was feeling inj his pocket ,lio change! I said : Never mind. I nele Ned, you keep that. Sarvant, sir; sarvant, md he SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, IS7S. with a low bow; and looking straight at me, he added: I believe you, sir, is the son of in old timey planter. Raising on my horse I bade Uncle Xed adieu, reminding him to keep a *barp eye on the crane. He bad probably been the favorite boy servant of some rich planter, wbos<»" pleasant duty was to attend to small things ai-out the greaUhouse, and drive the young ladies to church or school. *H WE you a card, sir'r' asked tho doorkeeper of the House. The man looked a little surprised, and answered, 'Cnrd f No, I don't carry a pack.' •Where are you from r' inquired the doorkeeper. North Caroliny,' was the 'VV hat do you do down in North Carolina when you go a visitingr Don't you send in a card to the nun you want to see f* The 'tar-heel* laughed outright, a massv he exclaimed.
