THE YAZOO DEMOCRAT.
Published Weekly YOL. 9. THE DEMOCRAT. PHILLIPS & PERKINS, Editobs. Auarr Harriet stowe The New York papers ar. ,ved with descrip tions of the "ovation" enjoyed by Mrs. Stowe, her husband ami brother, tendered by the aboli tionists in Glasgow, Scotland. Speeches were made there, and the lady's husband took occa ion to give the English people "a dig" on the cotton o.uestion. "Cotton," said the Professor, "makes American slavery profl table, and Eng land is the market." Mrs. Stowc's book will have one good effect. It is drawing the atten tion of the British people to their own condi tion. As evidence of this, we republish a paper Xvhich has been widely circulated in Englaud. It was forwarded to the New York Herald by the Manchester (.England) correspondent of that journal : THE QUEEN'S DREAM ; A SEQUEL TO "UNCLE TOM's CABIN.' Scene The emerald drawing room in a Palace of Freeland; the walls adorned with portraits of the philanthropists of all nations; also with two remarkable paintings: one showing How ard, the illustrious prison reformer, adminis- tering consolation to the tenants of a loathsome dungeon; the other, representing John Pound, an humble cobbler, in his habit when he lived, seated on a three-legged stool, teaching little ragged boys and girls to read, so that they might better find their way to their Heavenly Father. Present The Queen of Freeland surrounded by the Ladies f her Court, weep ing and sobbing. Fibst Lady (who has just finished reading a novel, called "Uncle Tom's Cabin,") Can such things be, and overcome us like a summer's dream ? Seconb Lady- It almost surpasses belief! Third Lady That monster, Legree Fourth Lady That sainted martyr, Tom ! Fifth Lady (hysterically) That darling Eva! Queen (who is young and beautiful, and has a, very silvery voice) Such scenes of life arc horrible ! 1 would not be monarch of that realm in its present state for all the glory of the undis puted -sovereignty of the universe ! Sixth Lady (old, and supposed to be light headed) May not the description have been rer-colored ? Queen, sadly.- -1 lear not. My arch-bishop s, bishops, ministers of 6tate, and privy council lors, all concur in stating that negro slavery is one of the great sins of the Western World. But 1 never knew before that its features were so utterly repulsive. I wish, my dear Duchess, 1 had never asked you to read the book. First LaDv. - Rather rejoice, your majesty: since the information you have obtained will enable you to protest against the iniquity. Queen. No ; I am queen only in my own realm ! And if I were to protest, or even im plore, the appeal would be useless. The inter communication between the States is founded on expediency, not sound, moral principle. Second Laby. Suppose the ladies of your court and empire were to send a pathetic ad dress on the subject to the ladies of the West. I have heard that woman's voice, when raised iu the cause of humanity, rarely lulls unheeded oo the ears of even the sternest of the opposite sex; and surely our sisters will not reluse us a patient hearing. First Lady. I cordially approve of the scheme and intended to have suggested it to your maj esty myself. Ladies, in zephyry chorus). So do all of us ! Queen. Do as you like you have my per mission '. But be loving and kind in your lan guage j for it our land be the blessed abode of liberty and happiness, we should not forget that the lands in which the negro is held captive, have not had, like us, the advantage of the ex perience of a thousand years of monarchial and Christian rule. Exeunt ladies, in agitation The Queen, (taking p " Uncle Tom's Cabin") Morning, noon and night, I am thankful that the air of Freeland is too pure for a slave. If I thought there was one in my dominions, I would tear the jewels from my crown to buy bis ransom. But there is not ; it is only in the land of the West that liberty is profaned bv traffic in the life that only God can give, and only God should use and lake. With this queenly reflection her majesty be gan to read, until at length, overpowered by the emotions the contents of the book had excited, she fell into such a deep study that the shadows of the world gathered around her lovely head, and gently closed her cerulean eyes. Her cheek fell into the hollow of her lily hand, and, resting on her elbow, buried in the cushions by her side, she slept. While slumbering, strange sights, stupendous doings, awful revelations cjc'vyfted upon her soul, THE DREAM, The air of Freeland is too pure for a slave f thought she as seetad oo her burnished throne, she gazad around her in all the swelling pride and consciousness of august superiority. "Queen, behold thy people !" sounded a sono rous voice in her ear. Her large blue eyes opeaed as by enchantment and looking louod her, she beheld a glittering throng of familiar faces. The proudest and most beautiful of the land swept before her in gorgeous array. Costly jewels blazed on alabas ter, arms, while diamonds flashed glory across brows of marble and shed splendor on necks majestic in their haughty curvature. Con temp of all things, low or little, darted from the eyes of this moving mass. Their every gesture be trayed an innate sense of power and exultation over the tradition of an ancestry unsullied b poverty. They were of the race Of the lofty brow, the imperial eye, The patrician Up that feeds on scorn. The scene changed one of gold. It was all gold. The gold was here, the gold was there, me gold was every where. The splashing, roll- J" " "uu "n88 gold were terrific. Whichei er wav th eye turned was gold. The human beings themselves -pmi gold. One, overgorged, parted in twain, and be hold ! his heart was crusted over with gold. Rows of shops and piles of warehouses next crowded upon her view. They were the hives of the richest of the world. The produce of every clime ennobled into usefulness by human labor and inventive genius, were here to be bad for money. The great globe itself had been ran sacked to furnish them. And their owners look ed plump and comfortable And well they might, for they were driving a roaring trade; hud snug Investments in stocks, railways, and mines; and, at eventide, were whirled down to preity Gothic cottages, overlooking Meadows trim, with daisies pied, or Shallow brooks and rivers wide. "These are the middle classes, who Haim to hold the balance of power between the higher and the lower!" whispered the voice in her maj esty's ear. "They are the strength and glorv of your nation, for they are the most industrious, the most moral, the most intellectual of the population !" The monarch felt pleased ; a smile lit up her expressive countenance but only for an instant, for, as Coming e rents cast their shadows before, the radiance fled, and in the darkness she timid ly asked : " Where are the people Where are the mass es, from whose bosom I draw my soldiers, my seamen, my artificers, my laborers ? Quicker than a flash of lightning they crowd ed upon her regal vision. Scores, torn to rib boas, lay scattered ia railway tunnels, where they had fallen victims to human cupidity. A hundred, suddenly borne from their quiet beds by an avalanche of water, were hurried into eternity, by human negligence. Sixties in one place, seventies in another, and dozens all over the country, the helpless victims of a remorse less element, lay in charred and blackened heaj-s, as sacrifices to human comfort, convenience, and glory. They had perished, deep in the bow els of the earth, while hewing riches out of grim chambers for the advancement of mankind at large. They had warmed the hearths of millions, fed the engine that works the factory, ploughs the main, and heaps up a magnificence which Not Babylon, Nor great Aleairo, equalled in all Their glories. And tliey died unmourned scarcely remember ed bv their accident-hardened kith and kin.- While their requiem is sung in a casual para graph, their elegy is written in a later and more appalling catastrophe, and so they are forgotten. No Ardennes waves above them her green leaves, Dewy with Nature's tear-drops ; although they died in a nobler cause than any that ever marshaled armies iu Battle's magnificently stern array. Their remains, In one black burial bieut, are consigned to oblivion ; and the only harps that hymn their praise are steam-pies, hissing and shrieking over land and sea. The vision as it deepened in horror, exposed the bottom ot the sea, strewed with thousands upon thousands of corpses of true-hearted sap ors, lnere mey lay, in tnetr la tnom less grave, pale, mute evidence of the peril to be encoun tered in the pursuit of that commerce which covers the seas with ships, and brings the na tions of the earth together. The ocean heaves hugely around them, exulting in its prey; while the millions who are clustered on the land little think that the cotton and silk they wear has cost the life of many a gallant seaman. Her Majesty being Queen of the Main, shed bitter tears at this sad spectacle, and. turning her eyes to the broad expanse of ocean spread out before gaze, saw it dotted with vessels, whose white sails glistened in the noonday sun.- The decks were crowded with human beings men, women and children who had dared the perils of the storm, the sharp edges of unseen rocks, the lightning's blast, and the uncertain chances of misfortune in a distant clime, in search of the daily bread they could not obtain in their own "dear native land." "Those are emigrants from your dominions,'' whispered the voice in her ear; "three hundred thousand of them annually leave your shores to enrich that great continent, now darkened by that slavery which your Majesty so grieveously laments, but which at no distant day will con trol the destinies of the world. What Freeland discards as a surplus, it receives with '.he open arms of affection.' "The spectacle saddens me," said the Queen, "fori can read sorrow, deeply blended with hope, on the countenances of that ocean-bound multitude. The sacrifice of country, home and friends, is not half redeemed by the prospect of a brighter future. Their hearts yearn after the ies they have left behind them, perhaps forever. There is the husband thinking of his wife and little ones, the lover of his sweet-heart, the mai den of her numberless sweet associations, and i he lone man, with the ivy -shadow creeping into every cell of bis heart, is covertly wiping away the tear shed over the only thing in lite left him to love his country. Sad oh, frightfully sad must be the necessity that drives so many true iiearts away from my empire! Hark ! the strains of music are wafted to my ears ! They come on the sigh-laden air like a requiem fox the banish ed living. It is Home, home, sweet home ! 1 and I see the decks are wet with tears, and that learts are throbbing that never wished to throb again 1" One vessel in that mournful fleet filled her ma jesty with vague but shuddering apprehension. Office on Malta YAZOO CITY, MISSISSIPPI, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY She saw the cloud over its track in the distance j had no silver lining. And as hereve nierced the dim vault of 'irne, she read itsdesdnv. The moon hath twelve times changed her form. From glowing orb to crescent wan, 'Mid skies of calm and scowl of storm, Since from her port that ship hath gone: But ocean keens its secret well ; And hough we know that all is o'er. No eye bath seen no tongue can tell Her fate : she ne'er was heard of more ! Oh ! were her tale of sorrow known, Twere something to the broken heart: The pangs of doubt would then be gone And Fancy's end'ess dream depart ! It mav not be : there is no rav By which her doom we mav explore ; We only know she sailed a wav, And ne'er was seen or heard of more. Such was the grief song of friends left behind, but to the queenly gaze the veil of darkness was uplifted. Her majesty saw the doomed emi grant ship, two months out of sight of land, and her hold was hot and vapor?. The shelf-like couches were occupied bv the raving sick, and In the dead waste and middle of the night, a shriek from a fair young girl tells all the ship that her shame will never smile in her face again It has gone, and in the morning it is cast into the sea, to be food for the sharks. Another week out. and the mother is tossed over-board more food for the sharks; and now the ship is swath ed up in red, and from her depths ascend the w ails of pain and the maddening cries of deliri um more food for the sharks. No water on board, but abundance of fever. Th bread moul- dv the beef end mutton putrid more tood for the sharks and the mate hoarse with reading the burial service. A black cloud gathers in the horizon, and the vessel plunges sheer over a gi gantic wave. A storm! " Make all snug aloft ) On with the hatches ! Let her drive it f shouts the captain. And as the wind howls and the lightning glares "Five feet of water in the hold! whispers the carpenter. " All bauds to the pumps!" and the men pas sengers labor and sweat for beings dearer to them than life, until the flesh drops from their hands, and their hair whiiens like the housetops on a moonlight winter's night. The long drawn cry of the agony of helpless women and children, suffocating below, rises above the storm, and as the whirling clouds and rolling sea blend their wrath, the wind and waves become wilder, and wilder, madder and madder. One shout one tremendeous explosion of horror shouts up to the starless firmament, and the emigrant ship has plunged, bows foremost, into the dark. deep, racing sea. " Where are my people ?" shrieked the Queen, orror-struck and appalled. "Queen !" whisiiered he genius at her si te, "viu shall see them, and in a guise in wl tch subjects were never vet presented to a monarch; but to nerve your woman's courage for the pres- entation, let me tell you that although the world j ........ ... 1 we live in has its bright and glorious aspecss al though kindly feelings, pure desires, and holy (Missions march with us to our destiny, and heav en's gracious sunshine falls on all alike there are those among us with bruised hearts, blighted h ,,es ana perverted instincts, whose way of liie is either a curse or a crime. The stately buildings, the pomp and insignia of wealth, the re,al magnificence of power, the laadscajies glittering in their almost garden beauty, and the waving fiields of God's food that surround us on every side, contrast so hideously wish this aw ful condition, that you must be informed thai there is a world within that which meets the dazzled eye of prosperity, of which no one knows aught, save those whom capricious for'une hus doomed its inhabitants. This world is a frozen coniiuent, Dark and wild, beat with perpeiual siorms Of whirlwind antldire hail wherein the tossed and troubled soul bewails the hour of its birth in the bitter language of despair. Those born in more genial social climes know nothing of this dreary existence. They never felt the pang that corrodes the heart, or the bitter woe that fires the brain as with a red hot iron, or hal to deplore the loss of a knowledge of the pure or true, or struggle with a life made up of fretful anguish, wounded delicacy, bruised sen timent, aud that gnawing and unceasing, though rhopeiess craving for those blessings which the human miud, in its lowest degradation, instinc tively feelto be its heritage on earth. Believe it, most gracious queen, that there are shadows dep anu broad on the ground we tread ; and he children of success, when they pursue their thou sand different ways, are too apt to forget that they are treading on the funeral pall ol a multi tude, whose hearts were never intended to beat only to the dirge of their own sorrows and mise ries to he wild sad notes, breathing eloquent reproach, sent up from every corner of the land. This is a condition of existence as dreadful as the fabled one of Tantarus, and every feature of its wretchedness, every variety of which it is so susceptible, claims from your majesty that con sideration and affectionate attention wbicb are based on the best, the warmest the holiest feel ings. The wrongs and sins of your empire start up in the gloom like A. forest huge of spears tipped with dark red fife. Behold them, as they appear, before you, in grisly and ghastly array 1 Mobe Cob wis tan. The late whig tJ. S.

Yes I would leive the gayest scene That ever smiled in beauty's light, To wander neath the foliage green With tbee ev en darkness would be bright. I'd rather hear ihy voice of love Brea he one sweet word to me alone, Than all the winds swept from above To wake the harp's entrancing tone. I'd wander neath a darkened sky Where not a gleam of sunshine played ; I'd ask no orb save thy full eye To smile upon me as I strayed, There music dear unto ray soul As life-breath to a bounding heart, Will on the still air softly roll, And bid sweet feelings o'er me start. I'd love no sky however bright,- No orb that lit the azure blue No star that shed its flood of light Unless wiih me yon gazed there too ; I'd ask no gem save nature's flower ; To bloom within my dark brown hair ; I wou d not live save in the hour That welcomed thy dear tootsteps there. And I would trust thy loving heart To make my own joyous and free ; Aflec.iou would deep bliss impart To flowery land or dark blue sea. In light or shade I'd love as now. And life would be one burnt of day, Then dyiug, 1 would kiss thy brow And with the softly pass away. Mars Hi1!, July. 1852. Spiritual Hupping. A POLITICAL POEM. " Once upon 1 midnight stormy, a lone bache lor Attorney, pondered many a curtous volume of his heart's forgo-. ten lore; while he nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there cume a tapping, as ot bome ue gently rapying rapping at his chamber door. Tis ihe spirits !' and he started ' rapping at my chamber door. 0, for help ! I'm frightened sore !'
