If I were to re- late 10 tbe order 10 wdico it reacnea me, i should commence in the middle, and when I had arrived at the conclusion go back for a beginning. It is enough for me to say that some of its circumstances passed my own eyes; for the remainder, I know them to have happened, and there are some persons yet living, who well remem ber them but too welL "In the Borongh High street, near Saint George's Church, and on the same side of the way, stands as most people know, the smallest of our debtor's prisons the Mar sbalsea. Although in later times it has been a very different place from tbe sink of filth and dirt it once was, even its im proved condition holds out but little temp tation to the extravagant or consolation to tbe improvident. Tbe condemned felon has a good a yard for air and exercise in Newgate, as tbe insolvent debtor in the Marsh.nlsea Prison. "It may be my fancy, or it may be that I cannot seperate the place from the old recollections associated with it, this part of London I cannot bear. This street is broad, tbe shops are spacious, tbe noise ol passing vehicles, the footsteps of the per petual stream of people all the busy sounds of traffic, resound in it from morn to midnight, but the streets around me are mean and close; poverty and debauchery festering in the crowded alleys, want and misfortune are pent up in the narrow pris on i an air of gloom and dreariness seems, in my eyes at least, to hnng about the scene, and to impart to it squalid and sick ly hue. "Many eyes, that have long since been closed in tbe grave, have looked around upon that scene lightly enough when en tering the gale of the Marshnlsea Prison for the first time ; for despair seldom comes with the first shock of misfortune. A man has confidence in nnlried friends, he remembers the many offers of service so freely made by his boon companion when he wanted them not; he bas hope the hope of happy inexperience and however he may bend beneath the first shock, it springs up in his bosom, and flourishes there for a brief space, until it drops be neath the blight of disappointed neglect. How soon those same eyes deeply sunken in the bead, glared from taces wasted with famine, aud sallow from confinement in days when it was no figure of speech to say that debtors rotted in prison, with no hope of release, and no prospect of liberty. Tbe atrocity, in its full extent, no longer exists, but luere is enough of it left to give rise to occurrences that make tbe ueart bleed. 'Twenty years ago, that pavement was worn with the footslepts of a mother and child, who,day by day,so surely as tbe morn ing came presented themselves at the pris on gate; often after a night of restless mis ery and anxious thoughts were tbey there, a full hour too soon, and then the young mother turning meekly away, would lead the child to the old bridge, and raising him in her arms to show him the glisten ing water, tinted with the light of the morning's sun, and stirring with all the bustling preparations for business and pleasure that the river presents at that ear ly hour, endeavor to interest his thoughts in the objects before him. But she would quickly set him down, and hiding her face in her shawl, give vent to the tear that blinded her, for no expression of interest or amusement lighted up his thin and sick ly face. His recollections were few enough, but they were all of one kind all con nected with the poverty and misery of his parents. Hour after hour had he sat on his mother's knee, and with childish sym pathy watched the tears that stole down her face, and then crept quickly away into some dark corner, and sobbed himself to sleep. The hard realities of the world, with many of its worst privations hun ger and thirst, and cold and want had all come to him from the first dawnings of reason ; its light heart, its merry laugh, and sparkling eyes were wanting. "lhe father and mother looked on upon this and upon each other with thoughts of agony they dared not breathe in words. lbs nealthy, strong made man who would have borne almost any fatiguge of active exertion, was wasting beneath tbe close confinement and nnbeathy atmosphere of a crowded prison. The slight and delecate woman was sinking beneath tbe combined effects of mental aud bodily illness; the child's young heart was breaking. "Winter came, and with it weeks of cold and heavy rain. The poor girl had removed to a wretched apartment close to the spot of her husband s imprisonment; and though the change had been rendered absolutely necessary by their increasing poverty, she was bappier now for she was nearer him. For two months, she and ber little companion watched the opening of the gate as usual. One day she failed to come, for tbe first lime. Another morning arrived, she came alone. The child was dead. "They little know, who coldly talk' of tbe poor man a bereavements, as a bappy release from pain to the departed, and a merciful release from expense to the sur vivor they little know,. I say, what the agony of those bereavements is. A silent look of affection and regard when all other eyes are turned coldly away the conscious ness that we possess tbe sympathy and af fection of one being when all others have de serted ns is a hold, a stay, a comfort in the deepest affliction which no wealth could purchase, or power bestow. The child had sat at his parents' feet for hours together, with his little hands patiently folded in each other, and his wan face raised toward them. They had seen him pine away from day to day ; and though bis brief existence had been a iovless one, and he lias now removed to that peace and rest which, child as he was, he had never known in this world, they were his gat-en!, and his loss sunk deep into their 80U18. "It was plain to those who looked upon the mother's altered face, that death must soon close the scene of her adversity and trial. Her husband's fellow prisoners shrank from obtruding on his grief and misery, and left him to himself alone, in tbe small room he had previously occupied in common with two companions. She shared with him ; and lingering on without pain, but without hope, her life ebbed slowly away. "She bad fainted one evening in her hus band's arms, and he had borne her to the open window to revive her with air, when the light of the moon falling full up on her face, showed him a change upon her features, which made him stagger beneath ber weight, likea helpless infant. " 'Set roe down, George,' she said, faint ly. He did so, and seating himself beside ber, covored bis face with his hands, and burst into tears. " It is very hard to leave you George,' she said' 'but it's God's will, and you mast bear it for my sake. Oh ! how I thank him for having taken our boy ! He is bap py, and in Heaven now. What would he have done here without his mother! " 'You shall not die, Mary, you shall not die,' said the husband, starting up. He paced hurriedly to and fro, striking his head with bis fist, then re-seating himself besides her, and supporting her in his arms, added more calmly, "Rouse yourself my dear girl pray, pray do. You will re vive yet.' tt 'Never again, George, never again,' said the dying woman. 'Let me lay by my poor boy, but promise me, that if ever you leave this dreadful place, and should grow rich, you will have us removed to some quiet couutry churchyard, a long, long way off very far from hero, where we cnt rest in peace. Dear George, promise me you will.' " 'I do, I do' said the man throwing himself passionately on his knees before her. 'Speak to trie Mary, another word, one look but one' "He ceased to speak ; for tbe arm that clasped his neck grew stiff and heavy. A deep sigh escaped from tbe wasted form before bira; the lips moved, and a smile played upon the face, but the lips were pallid, aud the smile faded into a rigid and ghastly stare. He was alone in the world. "That night, in the silence and denota tion of his miserable roorn, tbe wretched man knoll by the dead body of bis wife, and called on God to witness a. dreadful oath, that from that hour, he devoted him self to revenge her death and tbat of his child; that from thenceforth to the last moment of his life, his whole energies should be directed to this one object: that his revenge should be undying aud unex tinguishable; and should haunt its object through the world. "The deepest despair, and passions scar cely human, bad made such fierce ravages, his companions in misfortune affrighted from him as be passed by. His eyes were bloodshot and heavy, bis face deadly white, and his body bent as if with age. He had bitten his under lip nearly through in the voilence of his mental suffering, and the blood which had flowed from tbe wound had trickled down his chin, and stained his shirt and neckerchief. No tear, or sound of complaint escapes him, but the settled look, and disorded haste with which he passed up aud down tbe yard, denoted tbe fever which was burning with in. "It was necessary that his wife's body should be removed from tbe prison, without delay. He received the communication with perfect calmness, and acquised in tbe propriety. Nearly all the inmates of the prison bad assembled to witness its re moval; tbey fell back on either side wLen the widower appeared; he walked hurried ly forward, and stationed himself alone, in a little railed area close to the lodge gate, from whence the crowd, with an instinct ive feeling of delicacy, had retired. The rude coffin was borne slowly forward on men's shoulders. A dead silence pervaded tbe throng, broken only by tbe audible lamentations of the women, and the shuf fling steps of the bearers on the stone pave ment. They reached the spot where the bereaved husband stood; and stopped. He laid his hand npon the coffin, aud me chanically adjusting the pall with which it was covered, motioned tbetn onwards. The turnkeys in the prison lobby took off there bats as it passed through, and in an other moment tbe heavy gate closed behind it. He looked vacantly upon tbe crowd, and fell heavily to the ground. "Although for many weeks after this be was watched night and day, in the wildest ravings of fever, neither the consciousness of his loss, nor recollection of the vow he had made ever left him for a moment. Scenes changed before his eyes, place suc ceeded place, aud event followed event, in all the hurry of delirium ; but tbey were all connected in some way with the great object of bis mind. He was sailing over a bound less expanse of sea, with blood-red sky above, aud tbe angry waters lashed into fury beneath, boiling and eddying upon every side. There was another vessel be fore them, toiling and laboring in the howl ing storm; her canvass fluttering in rib bons from the mast, and ber deck throng ed with figures who were lasbed to the sides, over which huge waves every instant burst, sweeping away some devoted crea tures into tbe foaming sea, Onward they bore, amidst the roaring mass of water, with a speed and force which nothing could resist; and striking the stern of the for roost vessel, crushed her beneath their keel. From the huge whirlwind which the sink ing wreck occasioned, arose a shriek so loud and shrill tbe deatbery of a hundred drowning wretches blended into one fierce yell that it rung far above tbe war cry of tbe elements, and re-ecboed, till u seemed to pierce air, sky and ocean. But what was tbat that old gray head tbat rose above the water's surface, and with looks of agony, and screams for aid, buffeted with tbe waves I One look, and he sprung from the vessel's side, and with vigorous strokes swimming toward it. He reach ed it, he was close upon it. Tbey were Ail features. Tbe old man saw him coming, and vainly strove to elude his grasp. But he elapsed him tight, and dragged him beneath the water. Down, down with him fifty fathoms deep, bis struggles grew fainter, until they wholly ceased. He was dead ; he had killed him and kept his oath. "lie was traversing the scorching sands of a mighty desert, barefooted and alone. Tbe sand choked and blinded him; its fine thin grains entered into the very pores of his skin and stung him almost to madness. Gigantic masses of the same material, car ried forward by the wind, and shone through by tbe burning sun, stalked in distance like pillars of living fire. The bones of men, who had perished in tne dreary waste, lav scattered at bis feet; a fearful light fell on everything around ; and so far as the eye could reach, nothing but objects of dread and horror presented them selves. Vainly striving to ntter a cry of terror with his tongue cleaving to nis mouth, be rushed madly forward. Armed withh supernatural strenght be waded through tbe sand, until exhausted with fa tigue and thirst, he fell senseless on tbe earth. What fracrrant cooluess revived him ! what gushius sound was that f Wa ter! It was indeed a well ; and the clear fresh stream running at his feet. He drank deeply of it and throwing his aching limbs upon the bank, sunk into a delicious trance. Tbe sound of appioaching footsteps rous ed turn An old gray beaded ruan totter ed forward to slack his burning thirst. It was he again. He wound bis arms round the old man's body, and held him back. He struggled in powerful convulsions and shrieked for water for but one drop to save his life, but be held tbe old man firm ly, and watched his agonies with greedy eyes; and when his lifeless head fell for ward on his bosom, be rolled tbe corpse from him with his foot. "When the fever left him, and conscious ness returned, be awoka to find himself rich and free, to hear tbe parent who would have let him die in jail wouldl who had let those who were far dearer to him than his own existence, die of want and the sick ness of bcart that medicine can never cure had been found dead in bis bed of down He bad all the heart to leave his son a beggar, but proud even of his health and slreugih he bad put off the act until too late, and now he might gnash his teeth in tbe other world, at the thought of the wealth his remissness bad left bim. He awoke to this, and he awoke only to recol lect the purpose for which he lived, and to remember that his enemy was his wife's own father tbe man who had cast him into prison, and who, when bis daughter and ber child had sued at his feel for mer cy, had spurned them from his door. Oh, how he cursed tbe weakness that prevent ed him from being up, and active, in his scheme of vengeance. "He caused himself to be carried from the scene of his loss and misery, and con veyed to a quiet residence on the sea coast not in lhe hope of recovering his peace of mind or happiness, for both were fled forever; but to restore bis prostrate ener gies, and meditate on his darling. And here some evil spirit, cast in his way tbe opportunity for bis first, most horrible re venge. "It was summer time; and wrapped in his gloomy thoughts, he would issue from his solitary lodgings early in the evening, and wandering along a narrow path beneath lhe cliffs to a wild and lonely spot that struck his fancy in rambling, seat himself on some fallen fragments of the rock, and covering his face, remain there for hours sometimes till night had completely closed in, and the long shadows of the frowning cliffs above his head, cast a thick black darkness on every object near bim. "He was seated here, one calm evening, in his old position, now and then raising bis bead to watch tbe night of a large seagull, or carry his eye along the glorious crimson path which, commencing in the middle of the ocean, seemed to lead its very verge where the sun was setting, when the profound silenc of the spot was broken by a loud cry for help; he listened, doubted of his having heard aright, when the cry was repeated with even greater vehemence than before, and, starting to bis feel be hastened in the direction from whence it proceeded. "Tbe tale told itself at once ; some scat tered garments lay on tbe beach; a human bead was just visible above the waves at a little distance from the shore, and an old man wringing his hands in agony, was running to and fro, shrieking for assistance, Tbe invalid, whose strength was now suffi ciently restored, threw off his coat and rushed toward the sea, with the intention of plunging in and dragging the drowning man ashore. "'Hasten here, Sir, in God's name: help Sir, for the love of Heaven. He is my son, Sir, my only son," said the old man frantically, as he advanced to meet him. "My only son, fair, and be is dying before bis father's eyes." "At the first word the old man uttered, the stranger checked himself in his career, and folding his arms, stood perfectly mo tionless. " 'Great God !' exclaimed the old man, recoiliong 'Hey ling!' "The stranger smiled and was silent. "'Heylingl' said the old man, wildly 'my boy, Heyling, my dear boy, look, look, and gasping tor breath, tbe miserable fatb er pointed to the spot where he was strug gling for life. "'Hark!' said the old man He cries once more. He is alive yet. Heyling, save him, save him.' " 'The stranger smiled again, and remain ed immovable as a stone. " 'I have wronged yon,' shrieked the old man, falling on his knees, and clasping his hands together 'be revenged; take ray life, my all, cast me into the water at your feet, and, if human nature can repress a struggle, I will die without stirring band or foot. Do it, Heyling, do it, but save my boy, be is so young to die " 'Listen,' said the stranger, grasping the old man firmly by the wrist 'X will have life 'for life, and here is ONE. My child died before bis father's eyes, a far more agonizing and painful death . than that young slanderer of his sister' worth is meeting while 1 speak. You laughed in your daughter s lace wncre aeatn bad al ready set his band at onr suttenngs then. Wbai think you of them now t See there, see there.' "As tbe stranger spoke he pointed to the sea. A faint cry died away noon its surface, the last powerful struggle of the dying man agitated tbe npling waves for a few seconds ; and the spot where he had gone down into his early grave was nndis- tingisbable from tbe surrounding water. "Three years bad elapsed, when a gen tleman alighted from a private carriage at the door of a London attorney, then well known to the public as a man of no great nicety in his professional dealings, and re quested a private interview on business of importance. Although evidently not past the prime of life, his face was pale, haggard and dejected, and did not require the most acute perception of tbe man of business to discover at a glance, that disease of suffer ing bad done more to work a change in his appearance, than the mere hand of time could have accomplished in his whole life. "'I wish you to undertake some legal business for me,' said the stranger. "Tbe lawyer bowed obsequiously, and glanced at a large packet which the gentle man carried in bis hand. His visitor ob served tbe look, and proceeded : " 'It is no common business,' said be; 'nor have these papers reached my hands without long trouble and great expense.' "Tbe attorney cast a still more anxious look at the packet; aud the visitor disclos ed a quantity of promissory notes, with some copies of deeds and other documents. "'Upon these papers,' said his client, 'the man whose name they bear has raised, as you will see, large sums of money, for years past. There was a tacit understand ing between him and the men in whose hands they originally were and from whom I have by degrees purchased the whole, for treble and quadruple their nom inal value that these loans should be from time to time renewed, until given period had elapsed. Such an understanding is now here expressed. He has sustained many losses of late; and these obligations accumulating on him al once, would crush him to the earth.' " 'The whole amount is some thousands of pounds,' said the attorney, looking over the papers. " 'It is,' said the client " 'What are we to do ?' inquired the man of business. " 'Do P replied the client, with sudden vehemence 'Put every engine of the law in force, every trick tbat ingenuity can de vise and rascality execute; fair means and foul ; the open oppression of the law, aid ed by all the craft of its most ingenious practitioners. I would have him die a harassing and lingering death. Ruin him, seize and sell his lands and goods, drive him from house and home, and drag him forth a beggar in his old age, to die in a common jail.' " 'But tbe costs, my dear sir, the costs of all this; reasoned the attorney, when he had recovered from his momentary surprise. 'If the defendant be a man of straw, who is to pnv the costs, sir !' " 'Name any sura,' said the stranger, his hand trembling so violently with excite ment that be could scarcely hold the pen he seized as be spoke 'any sum and it is yours. Den t be afraid to name it, man. I shall not think it dear, if you gain my object." "Tbe attorney named a large sum, at hazard, as the advance be should require to secure himself agaiust the possibility of loss; but more wan the view of ascertain ing how far his client was disposed to go, than with any idea that he would comply with the demand. The stranger wrote a check upon his banker for the whole amount and left bim. "Tbe draft was duly honored, and the attorney finding that his client might be safely relied upon, commenced his work in earnest. For more than two years after wards, Mr. Heyling would sit whole days together, in tbe ofhee, poring over tbe pa pers as they accumulated, and reading again anil agnin, bis eyes gleaming with joy, the letters of remonstrance, the pray ers for a little delay, the representation of the certa n ruin in wbicb tbe opposite par ty nust be involved, that poured in, as suit after suit, and process after process, was commenced. To all applications for a brief indulgence, there was but on reply the money must ba paid. Land, house furniture, each in its turn, taken under someone of tbe numerous executions which were issued; and the old man himself would have been immured in prison had he not escaped the vigilance of the officers and fled. "The implacable animosity of Heyling, so far from being satisfied by the success of his persecution, increased a hundred-fold with tbe ruin he inflicted. On being in formed of the old man's flight his fury was unbounded. He gnashed his teeth with rage, tore the hair from his head, and as sailed with horrid imprecations tbe men who bad been intrusted wilb the writ. He was only restored to comparative calm ness by repeated assurances of the certain ty of discovering tbe fugitive. Agents were sent in quest of him in ail directions; every stratagem that could be invented was resorted to, for the purpose of discovering his place of retreat; but it was all in vain. Half a year had passed over, and he was still undiscovered. " 'At length, late one night, Heyling, of wnom notuing naa Deen seen for many weeks before, appeared at the attorney's private residence, and sent up word tbat a gentleman wished to see him instantly. before the attorney, who had recognized his voice from above stairs, could order the servant to admit him, he had rushed up the staircase and entered the drawing room pale and breathless. Having closed tbe door to prevent being overheard, he sunk into a chair, and said with a low voice 'Hush I I have found bim at last.' " 'No V said tbe attorney. 'Well done my dear sir; well done.' " 'He lies concealed in a wretched lodg ing in Camden Town.'said Heyling 'Per haps it is as well we did loose sight of him, for he has been living alone there, in the most abject poverty, all the time, and he is poor, very poor,. "Syery good,' said the attorney, 'you will haWfue captain made acquainted with the fact to-morrow of course.' " 'Yes,' replied Heyling. 'Stay! No! The next day. You are surprised at my wishing to postpone it,' he added with a ghasty smile, 'but I bad forgotten. The next day is an anniversary in his life, let it be done then." " 'Very good, said the attorney 'Will you write down directions for the officer!' " 'No. Let him meet me here at eight o'clock in the evening, and I will accompa ny him myself.' "They met on the appointed night, and hiring a hackney coach, directed the dri ver to stop at the corner of the old Pan eras road, at which stands tbe parish work house. By the time they alighted there, it was quite dark; and proceeding by the dead wall in front of tbe Veterinary Hos pital, they entered a small by-street, which is, or was at that time called Little College street, and which, whatever it may be now, was in those days a desolate place enough, surrounded by little else than fields and ditches. "Having drawn the traveling cap he had on half over his face, and muffled himself in his cloak, Heyling stopped before tbe meanest looking bouse in the street, and knocked gently at the door. It was at once opened by a woman who dropped a courtesy of recognition ; and Heyling, whis pering tbe officer to remain below, crept gently up stairs, and, opening the door of tbe front room, entered at once. "The object of bis search an unrelenting animosity, now a decrepid old man, was sealed at a bare deal table, on which stood a miserable candle. He started on the en trance of the stranger and rose feebly to bis feet. "'What now, what now!' said the old man 'what fresh misery is this! What do you want here f " 'A word with you,' replied Heylng. As he spoke he seated himself at tbe oth er end of the table, and throwing off his cloak and cap, disclosed bis features. "The old man seemed utterly deprived of the power of speech. He fell backward in his chair, and, clasping his hands togeth er, gazed on the apparition with a mingled look of abhorrence and fear. " 'This day six years,' said Heyling, 'I claimed the life you owed me for my child's. Beside the lifeless form of your daughter, old man, I swore to live a life of revenge. I have never swerved from my purpose for a moment's space, but if I had, one thought of her uncomplaining look, as she drooped away, or of the starving face of our inno cent child, would have nerved me to my task. My first act of requittal you well remember; this is my la?t.' "The old man shivered, and his hands dropped powerles by bis side. " 'I leave England to-morrow,' said Hey ling, after a moment's pause- 'To-night I consign you to the living death to which you devoted her a hopeless prison ' "He raised his eyes to tbe old man's countenance and paused. He lifted the light to his face, set it down gently, and left the apartment. "Yon had better see to the old man,' he said to tbe woman, as he opened lhe door, and motioned the officer to follow him into the street 'I think he is ill.' Tbe woman closed the door, ran hastily np stairs, and found bim lifeless. He died in a fit. "Beneath a plain grave stone, in one of the most peaceful and secluded church yards in Kent, where wild flowers mingle with grass, and the soft landscape around forms the fairest spot in the garden ot Eng land, lie the , bones of the young mother and her child. But the ashes of the fath er do not mingle with theirs, nor from that night forward, did tbe attorney ever gain the remotest clue to tbe subsequent history of his client." Expulsion of Northern Men. It having been denied by the New York owners or agents of the Steamship Augus ta, from Savannah, that any of the pas sengers had been driven from the South, one of the cabin passengers, Mr. Ebling, furnishes the Tribune with a statement as follows: On or about the 6th of tbe montb he was standing near the Post Office, in Sa vannah, when he was accosted by one of three men, who asked him if he was from the North. He replied that be did. Tbe next inquiry relative to his business, in an swer to wbich be gave the name of his em ployer. He was then asked if he was fa vorable to the North or South. He an swered that he was favorable to the South, Tbe three men left. On the morning of the 11th or 12 inst. Mr. Ebling received from the Minute Men a notice, of which the following is a copy: SAVANNA, Nov. 11, 1850. Eugene Ebling Sir: Having heard that yoa were an Abolitionist, and believing you to be sucb, yon will leave town by Saturday next, or abide by the consequen MINUTE MEN. Eugene Ebling, Savannah, Ga. On Friday, the 16tb, a roan with a blue rosette upon bis coat accosted Mr. Ebling, asking him if he did not receive a letter from the Minute Men. He made no par ticular reply, but on Saturday left in the Steamer. He states that Mr. J. M. Elliot, another cabin passenger, received a similar uotice to leave. Doct. F. R. Thayer was driven from Au gusta, Georgia, and furnishes a statement. The Doctor formerly lived in Augusta, but for a year had been North on account of bis health, but had lately returned to Au gusta. He says : . Everything passed pleasantly until Fri day morning; when I received a note as follows: "Dr. Thatkr: You are hereby noti fied to leave the city at the earliest possible time, or abide by the consequences. PHILLIP. "L. M. HILL." Being sick in bed, I sent for a friend, who came at once and took the note to the Mayor. He called at once, and said every effort should be made to stop the thing. Suffice it to say, the authorities did all in their power tosnppress the excitement, but all to no effect At 3 o'clock P. u. I was attacked by three rnffians in front of the Planter 8 Hotel, who nsed every exertion to put me into a carriage and take roe to Hamburg, b. C, where my fate would have been sealed. They could not succeed, and began to drag me along the walk, when my wife and daughter beard the noise, and came to my rescue. They caught me on either side, and begged them to release me, which, after using many oaths, they did. saying, "Madam, yon being a woman, we will give up. bbe thanked tbem. We then returned to our room, where our friends came to our relief in great num bers. From this time the excitement in creased rapidly; a Jarg crowd gathered around the bouse; speeches were made b tbe most influential men of tbe city, and every effort used to disperse the mob; but all to no ettect Ihey seemed like so many hungry wolves. At half past five P. m., my friends deci ded that my only safety was immediate flight Let me here say that these Vigilance Committees and mobs are composed of tbe most low, drunken, irresponsible class of the community, and the instigators are of ten Northern men. That no blame may be attached to the respectable and responsible portion of the citizens, I will say that they have extended the hand of sympathy and friendship, and volunteered their services to defend me from an infuriated mob. They have my sympathies and ever shall have. Nobler hearts never beat than those of the true whole-souled Southerner. Would to God there were more like them. I omit calling any names, for, by so doing, I might involve some of my friends into trouble. The Boston Traveler of the 20th says: Mr. J. W. Ribero, who, with bis wife and two children, came as passengers on the Joseph Whitney, wbich arjived at this port last night from Savannah, has given an ac count of tbe particulars of his leaving bis native State. He was born in Savannah, and has lived there nearly all his life. He says. he has recently been at work as a carpenter, repairing a bridge, 10 miles from Savannah. The job was taken by a free colored man, who employed, in addi tion to himself, several slaves taken from plantations in the vicinity. On the Gth be was reading a paper, when the following dialogue occurred between him and a slave. "Massa Joe what's de news!" "Ob, nothing but politics," he replied. "Whai'a politics !" asked the negro. "Voting and so on," said Ribero; "the North is fighting for freedom and the South for slavery." "Well, willde nigger be free if Lincoln is elected i" "I don't know, that is more than I am able to tell you," said Ribero. The negro returned to his work, and Ribero kept on reading. This conversation was reported to an overseer, and the matter was referred to Regulators, who took him from his woik, and after cutting off the hair and whiskers from one side of his head, had bim tied and whipped by two negroes, till his side was cut like meat scored for the oven. Tbey then took bim to Savannah, and put him on board the Joseph Whitney, af ter compelling him to sign a paper that be left of his own free will. The same evening men went to his wife and made her get ready to come by tbe same steamer. Tbey arrived here in a des titute condition. A Good Recommendation. "Sir, please, don't you want a cabin boy!" "I do want a cabin boy, my lad ; but what's that to you ! A little chap like you ain't fit for the berth." "Oh, sir, I'm real strong. I can do a great deal of woik, if I aiu't so very old." "But what are you here for ! You don't look like a city boy. Run away from home, hey!" "Ob, no, indeed, sir; my father died and my mother is very poor, and I want to do something to help her. She let me come." . "Well, sonny, where are your letters of recommendation. Can't take a boy with out those." Here was a damper. Willie had never thought of it being necessary to have let ters from his minister, or his teacher, or from some proper person, to prove to stran gers that he was an honest boy. Now, what should be do! He stood in deep thought, the captain meanwhile curiously watching the workings of his expressive face. At length he put his hand into his bo som, and drew out his little Bible, and without one word put it into the captain's hand. Tbe captain opened to the title page and read : "Willie Graham, presented as a reward for regular and punctual attendance at Sab bath School, and for his blameless conduct there and elsewhere. From his Sunday School Teacher. Capt. McLeod was not a pious man, but he could not consider the case before him with a heart unmoved. The little father less child, standing humbly before him, ra ferino him to the testimony of h;s Sunday School teacher, as it was given in his little Bible, touched a tender spot in the breast of the noble seamen, and clapping Willie heartily on the shoulder, he said : "You are the boy for me ; and if you are as good a lad as I think you ar, your pockets shan't be empty when yoa go back to your mother."
