Phill. His facetiousness arid love" ot

has long since been gathered to his fa

of him, yet he still Fives in tho legjn

resided, to .all intents and purposes as
fresh as if a Washington Irving had
chronicled his deds. .
One unacquainted with Phill would,
on first sight, mistake him for a plain,
homespun-clad clergyman. At the da'c
of the occurrence to which we are about
to allude, he was fifty years of age,
though his appearance would not indi

to corpulency, exhibiting a remarkably

The runaway, slave, Frederick Dou
glass, lately went out rn one of the
Cunard Steamers, with a design to en- '
lighten the people of Groat Britain, on
the subject of his Lectures, American
Slavery by which he gratifies the Ma
lignity of our enemies at home and
abroad, and what is to him of more im
portance, lines his pockets with cash.
The last day of the voyage, the Cap
tain of the Steamer, with many other
. jgentlemen, and some ladies, hearing
that Douglass was a goad speaker, de
sired to have a "touch of his quality"
on the promenade deck. During his
remarks he opened a iiook, and began
to read the code of slave laws in Sjim'i
Carolina. A gentlemen from Connec
ticut disputed the sentences as they
were read. He was sustained by tho
slave-holders and most of the other
American? on board, while Douglass
was backed by the Englishmen. The
account of which came from one on
board at the time, says: ''The Captain
was Very cool at first, but finding him
self grossly insulted by a slave holder
from New Orleans, (who made his
boast that he "owned a hundred and
tin rty niggers'") he (Captain) order-l
the boat-swain to call the 'watch, uu

owner of two hundred slaves. If I had
them now I should not bo obliged to
follow the sea. dlut they were liberated?
and it teas rigftt. Frederick Douglass
may ppeak. 1 am Captain of this ship.
No mention is here made of the insult
to the slave-holdets and others by per
mitting a negro slave to make a speech
on the promenade deck of the steamer.
We hope our southern people will take
tins matter into consideration, and those
who have business abroad will avoid
the Cunard line of Steamers which run
from Boston to Liverpool, unless this
Captain is removed Irom his post, or
proper amends are made. It is due to
the South, also, that ofiicial persons
should find some ojher mode of convey

My friends! I have been a witness

A Missouri Jtdge A good tory is
going the rounds of the papers, of the
manner in which lliey do things out in
Missouri. It is told of one judge Allen,
more familiarly known as 'Iloss Allen,"
I who once npoa a timi determined to ad
minister the law in due order, for the
punishment of certain offenders; and ac
cordingly the sheriffs jury and witnesses
were assembled. . The first order was
to 'strip and go to work, and raise a
court-house. This was done with a few
and tho court was opened, when a re
mark from some one called down the
indignation of the judge, and he order
ed business to be suspended forTifteen
minutes, and going up to the disturber
gave him a terrible whipping. He then
r&turned to the bench puffing nnd blow
ing from tha exercise; an J rising, 'Peo
ple, said he, 'I am here to adjudge thc
law and administer justice, by thunder!
If you care anything about civilization.
I?m ready to give you a touch of It. If
the sheriff and his officers are not
enough, here am 1, single handed; and
if'Uny one says he ain't satisfied, rl I
adjourn the court again and give him a
chance!' It is hardtv necessary to say
that the etiquette of 'Hoss Allen's' court
was "never infringed after that.
Anecdote Judge Dooly, Df Georgia,
was remarkable for his wit, as well as
for his other. talents. At one place
where he attended court, he was not
well pleased with the entertainment at
the tavern- On the first day of the
court, a hog under the nama of a pig
had been cooked .whole and laid. on the
table. No person attacked it. It was
brought the next day, jmi the next, and
treated with same respect; and it was on
the table on the day on which the court
adjourned. As the party finished their
dinner, judge Dooly rose from the table
and in a solemn manner addressed the
clerk, "Mr. Clerk," said he, "dismiss
that hog upon his recognizance until the
first day of the ne-xt court. He has at
tended o faithfully during the present
term, that I don't think it will be neces
sary to lo lake any security."
Drawing olta Needle by Magnet.
A colored -woman, at Fraqkfort, Ky.
ran a needle in the 'fleshy part of the
palm some months ago. Last week
Mr. J hn". Goodman, to whom the w
maa belonged knowing the needle would
not remain stationary, that it would pro
duce supparation and gradually move
from its imbedment, it struck him that
it might be attracted to the surfanceor
"skin, and , he proluced a magnet and
applied it to the hand. Soon a sensa
tion of pain was produced, and three
das after the neeJle'made its appear
ance just under the skin, when it was
easily extracted.
The hothouse system of education is
doing wonders for thc youth of our.
land. The youth kicks off his diaper
and frock, and jumps into calfskin boots
and a long ttibdcoit. He even chang
es the nipple for a cigar, and the sugar
teat for a quid of tobacco. Tho girl is
either haby or lady. She makes one
jump from her nurse's arms, into her
husband's and of course is 'finished.'
