Olicii will the remembersi^ce of a generous act, kind word or even look, throw a gicain ol pleasure across (be dai!.- t period of our exirt-nce. Kind words and deeds like precious seeds, were never destined to be lost to him that scatters them lor the welfare of suffering humanity, but, when oppress ed with care, or sunk in the night of des pendency, will be a beaeon star, guiding to the dawning light of prosperity. In the fall of 1S37, a young man, a resident of Brooklin, V V.. was spend ing u few weeks in the vicinity of Baton Rouge, in order to make some purchases of cotton, himself and father being ex tensively concerned in the Fall River Manufactory. Having completed his business satis factorily, Lesli \V —— resolved to ap propriate n week to a ramble among the various cotton and sugar plantations ie. the neighborhood. IL- was delighted Willi lllc la-'-UUI UMU unvt the plantations. 11c admired the luxu riant growth of the broad leaved South ern corn and the towering canes. But could not hut smile, a little contemptous ly it must be confessed, at the terrible outcry made by the North against slavery, when he saw the contented and cheer ful countenances of the plantation hands, their games and pastime, their excessive and extravagant joy when returned their annual ilium 11131100,* as they term it.— Like most northern persons visiting the South for the first time, he was dazzled by the brilliant exterior, but did not trou ble himself to lift the curtain and view the loathsome spectacle as it is, and, but for the incident about to be related, Lisli would have returned to the North a sin * A custom among I ha negroes "f selling on fife the cornfield* after the c«.»ru tee.i harvested On the evening appointed,at the preconcerted signal,the negroes on the surrounding plantations, simultaneously apply the lerch to the slam ling stalks, and soon the whole •seems to be illumined by ten thousand lights; the scene rom the river u enchanlingly boauMful Inurmi vm core admirer of the ‘beauties of American slavery.’ ft One day as lie was passing in the rear of a large plantation, he heard voi ces, which seemed to proceed from a thicket of bushes near by. lie was about to continue his wall: without notic ing the circumstance, when a word was horn to Jiis car which caused him to pause and listen. It was evidently a negro belonging on the plantation in con versation with some one, a female, who seemed to he pleading in an earnest but subdued tone of voice. "Well tniss,’' he overheard the negro say, "you've sot yourself ’hove us long null', now you’ve got to cotch it.” “Junus,” replied the female voice, "you know that I have ever treated you and the plantation hands, with kindness; did I not interfere in your behalf, when you were tied to this same whipping pr -t, and rescue you from an ignoinmous puni I.incut 1 did I not wait upon you by night and by daj, vv I. a you were burn in 1 with the fever, when with the most solemn protestations, you vowed to re quite my kindness if it ever came within v air power? and now can you have the heart to murder me thus! lor you know a .1 th ■ Hr -t Mow from that horrid in .".rmncni uni miii use marl m;u ever In wall cotnpa: :< n ! r nil your wues.’ “Well, 'bpos you’re been good'nulf, but I ow’d a ‘i, ul.tr grudge ’gainst all wfolks, and when I ;cn a chance : 1 •it tip one of you white niggers, den 1 does it c 'rrcctil.'!o.” (), }( u unf vliiig, hardhearted wretch. 0.

This young girl was :i tpsadroon, fair and delicate as the Kir.«t Mii-thin** How -r . f i!w Sr-ri. N\: i .h one raJ ! area:a w.li N hi, but. wh >, like many of lli.it cl.i s ol Louisiana’* unfortunate daughters, pos sessed a countenance uliicb betrayed yea roe a feature by which even the inert critical dnervor, would, for a m iiuciit, be led to - u.pcct that in her vc.ns there course 1 a minut-1 drop of African blood. I.esii paused lor a moment uiiob-erv, i! by the black \ i. ped demon, to survev the sir angc scene, but his ga/e was in stantly met by a look from the p—.r giri — and such a look ! the concentration ii seemed, of loveliness and suffering that appealed at once to'his very soul with an eloquence surpassing words; that enlisted all the sympathies of his noble an J gen erous nature. Stepping before iho negro—"stay your lash” said he, ".vhat has this girl done to you, for which she i- to be punished!” “O, nufiiii, i uffin,” replied Erebus, nolliing di-u u '.iled by the sudden ap pearance and abrupt interrogatory ol I.esii, "only she never had any brotin up." “You see," continued he, “mas-sa h; had two wives, de first ob dem sol stores by de gal — neber whipped her in her life, but allers kept her in de parlor ’inOng ! de big fulks, d n she sent her off to Par adise to get her edition finished,” "To Paris, to complete her education, you mean,” saiu Lcsli, interrupting him. j "O yar, yar, all do same wid niggers but stand back, young gcntman, dis lady cotching cold, jest step back, while 1 proceed wid dis cal—calcrfactive cop peration,” replied Junus pompously. “Junus,” said Lesli, “will you inform me where 1 can find your master!'1 “My rnassa! gess you cant find him ’tall. Yar, yar! he, he ! down on de plan tation, mile otr.” “Well, 1 want you to take the best horse in the stable and ride down, tell your master that a gentleman is waiting to seo hint on business.” “Yes sar, soon as 1 get through disin clining dis lady.” Bui I cannot wait ; here, take this shilling and he off; I will do the whip ping for you,” The negroes eyes glistened al the sight of the silver. “You’ll do de gal jusis?” said he. “Yes, yes, just as well as you would vourself.” “Well, den, I’ll be off in n jiffy,” so saying the delighted darky 'vanished in the direction of the stable. As soon as the sable countenance of Janus had disappeared, Lcsli proceeded to release the fair captive from her un comfortable confinement. She did not thank him in worth; her heart was too full fur speech, but in her meaning look was expressed unbounded gratitude to her deliverer. She could not speak. Her soul seemed to lie crushed by a mountain weight of contending emotions, but kind nature came to tier relief and her sur charged feelings bund vent in a flood of , tears. “Comp >se yourself, my good girl,” • aid r.e>li, “and tell me why those tears | and what sad fortune has reduced one sol 1 young, so fii , so intelligent as tiion 1 sccmst to he, under the inexorable rule of bondage.” “Pale!” sho replied suddenly raising herself up to her full height, “say, does, not the curse of Cod rest upon every hti 1 man being tinctured with a shade of my I unfortunate race? I not 0:1c drop of the a :eu ed blood sufficient to bring soul and body within the coils of a law en forced by demon , created and sustained bv Ire, men. 1 r rather hv black-hearted [tyrants/ Talk of oppression!—where will you Ichoid oppression of a deeper dye, of more gigantic proportions than in your boasted free republic! You may trace the annals of the past, yes, pierce the darkest ag< s of popish cruelty ; where will you behold such Heaven daring im piety as is revealed by the meridian light of the nineteenth century iu the system of American slavi ry.” By Heaven,” mentally ejaculated i I,., li, “tins girl possesses a spirit no eas , ier to he lmmhled by tlio lush than lhe j ticrcc wirlwind can ho hound with a straw.” "You talk wildly,” said lie “ho calmer and relate to me a sketch of your past i.'c, for i m certain that your history mu-t be pcc’i'.'dnrly Interesting.” 1 will, but 1 ' r there is little in the ln-t ry of a pji r -lave todutercst a you; l,ut you have ja heart to pity my nii. fortuo.s, and won' i to hc.-veu 1 could rrpiy your kindness; hut alas, 1 am not my own. O, cru< 1 fate, why wr. 1 given a spirit so keenly to feci the crush ing weight of bondage; better, far hotter posse - the stupid iusensibilrly of the | brute, than the consciousness ol being a I slave. Hut it was not always thus—un I til within n few weeks, 1 never knew 1 wb it it ■ to bo a slave. “My mother's mine*" continu 1 she, “was Ango'ino A-, a very bright mu gi ! 1 longing to my former n • ■ tress.

With all possible despatch I has tened across the Atfchiuc, but arrived too late —the being that 1 almost adored was now an angel—she hail breathed her last charging her husband to be kind to her I loved Mary. This was my first sorrow and I wept in unfeigned anguish of spir it, but when I saw the bowed head and silent grief of my master, I subdued my feelings turned my whole attention to the arrangement o( his disordered house and to me was intrusted the solo manage ment. “It wns indeed a sad change from the ’ay world to the stern realities of life, jut 1 felt not the loss so keenly as I had expected. It Is true L hud lost a kind friend and benefactor, and for a time this otautiful world seemed n wildesness of care and deprivation, but those gloomy feelings were dispelled by the bright stm •bino of love, and I felt that I-nill had a protector, that I was loved not rs a friend men Iv, but w ith an affection fiigher and holier. “ V’ou may deem me imprudent for uniting myself lo a slave, but William would scorn to own the name, and be is atily nominally - o, being overseer and director on an extensive plantation up river. ‘As before mentioned, 1 was intrusted will the management of my master's do mestic bur's t's v.btcli duty 1 continued faithfully lo dischnr . until within a few weeks— litre for the tlrst time, my real position presented itself to view with overwhelmin’’ truthfulness—never had I learned tho meaning of tl.e word inferi or, yet as such was 1 treated from the first, by my master s second wife, an ig norant and haughty Spmi.-h Sonora whose vast wealth lie had wedded. lor a tunc her taunts anJ insults wore supportable, for in my m;,-ter 1 stilt found a friend ; ;tiil in his ears rang the words of his dying wife, 'be kind to my loved Mary,' but the v, ice of conscience was soon stilled by the aitlul intrigues of my cruel persecutor.

"What! you do not infer to Mary V exclaimed her husband starting from his scat. "Precisely so, my dear,” was the cool reply ; "did you not give me the whole cenlrol of the household servants, with the privilege to dispose of them at will ! This is 1 think my prerogative, which 1 wish to exercise w ithout restraint.'’ “True yours is the undoubted rL'ht t: increase or diminish the number oi household servants at pleasure, but Mary I do not rank as a slave but as an equal; to which she is as much entitled as yourself. Part with Mary! sooner part with my own son.” “I presume my dear,” replied the lady, “that it is perfectly understood by you that 1 shall con ult no one’s feelings bjt my own, in reference to my own affairs. Have you given to her a lawful freedom? I wish you to bear it in mind that Mary I must leave within one week—or 1 will. If 1 can do in better 1 shall take the trouble to send her down to Texas on to a plantation.” “And if I remain one week longer with this fiend, this steel enters her heart or mine,” exclaimed Mary, stepping into the room, drawing from her bosoni at the same time, a bright stilletto, and addresa her master. “Why Mury, are you mad?” exclaim ed the astonished planter, “what in Ilea ! ven’s name i= the meaning of this?" “Mad I" returned she energetically, every feature betraying a determined and i even desperate purpose. “Mad !
