Milky Sea X?t Understood.
The milky sea, as it is known to ma
riners, is not yet fully understood. It
seems to be most common in the trop
ical waters of the Indian ocean, and is
described as weird, ghastly and awe
inspiring, and as giving the observer
on shipboard the sensation of passing
through a sort of luminous fog in
which sea and sky seem to join and all
sense of distance is lost. The phenom
enon is probably due to gome form of
phospborescence. ? Chicago Post.
SLAVERY IN NEW ENGLAND.
Brought to r. n Find by (Bio Supreme
Court of MnKaapliuaetta
Slavery in New England began soon
after the settlement of the country.
In 163S Pequot Indians were taken
from Massachusetts and sold in the
West Indies. The vessel returning
brought a cargo of cotton and tobacco,
says the Boston Transcript. Slaves
were most numerous in New England
about the middle of the eighteenth
century. In 1754 there were nearly
5,000 negro slaves in the state of Mas
sachusetts. In 1780, in the declaration
of rights, all men were declared to be
free and equal. In 1781 a white man in
Massachusetts was indicted for beat
ing and imprisoning a black man. His
defense was that this was the neces
sary and lawful correction for a slave,
for a slave could not be held in sub
jection unless one could punish bim
when he went away or refused to
work. In 1783 the supreme court of
Massachusetts declared that the de
fense was invalid. That put an end to
slave try in New England. Slaves were
mostly household servants, kept large- j
Iy by rich people for purposes of dis- I
Lo n kUi euded.
