Oh ! could there in this world be found
Some little spot of happy ground
W here village pleasures might go round
Without the village tattling ?
How doubly blest that place would be
Where all might dwell in liberty
Os gossip’s endless prattling !
If such a spot were really known,
Dame Peace might claim it as her own,
And in it she might fix her throne
Forever and forever,
There like a queen might reign and live,
Where every one would soon forgive,
The little slights they might receive,
And be offended never.
The mischief-makers that remove
w Far from our hearts the warmth of love,
And leads us all to disapprove
What gives another pleasure;
They seem to take one’s part, but when
They’ve beard our case, unkindly then
They soon retail them all again,
Mixed with poisonous measure.
And they have such a cunning way
Os telling tales. They say :
“Don’t mention what I say, I pray :
I would not tell another.”
Straight to their neighbor’s house they go,
-Narrating everything they know;
And break the peace of high and low—
Wife, husband, friend and brother.
Oh ! that the mischief«making crew
Were all reduced to one or two,
And they were painted red and blue,
They every one might know them ;
Then would the village soon forget
To rage and quarrel, fume and tret,
And fall into an angry pet
With things too much below them-
For it’s a sad, degrading part,
To make another’s bosom smart,
And plant a dagger in the heart
We ought to love and cherish ;
Then let us evermore be found
In quietness with all around
While friendship, peace and joy abound,
And angry feelings perish.

FARE—ANXIETr FOR HIS FAMILY.
May 26fA.—Called with the officer of the day,
Captain James Bj King, at IP. M. Found Mr.
Davis in bed, complaining of intense debility,
but could not point to any particular com -
plaint. The pain in his head had left him last
night, but had been brought back this fore
noon, and aggravated by the noiso ot moeban
ics employed in taking down the wooden doors
between his cell and the exterior guard room
and replacing these with iron gratings, so that
he could at all times be seen by the sentries in
tbe outside room as well as by the two “silent
friends,” who were the unspeaking com pan.
ions of his solitude.
Noticed that the prisoner’s dinner lay un
touched on its tin plate near his bedside, his
meals being brought in by a silent soldier, who
placed the food on its table and then withdrew.
• • * • * * *
Quitting him—called on General Miles, and
recommended that Ibe allowed to place tbe
prisoner on a diet corresponding with his con
dition, which required light and nutritious
food. Consent was immediately given, and I
bad prepared and sent over from my quarters
some tea and toast for his evening's meal.
Calling about 7 r. m , found Mr. Davis greatly
improved, the tea aud toast having given him,
he said, new life. Though he had Dot com
plained of the fare, he was very thankful for
He then commenced talking, aDd let me
beie say that I encouraged him in this, believ
ing conversation and some human sympathy
tho best medicines that could bo given to one
in his state—on the subject of tho weather.
How has the weather been—rough or fair ?
In this huge cisement, and unable to crawl to
the embrasure, he could not toil whether the
weather was rough or smooth, nor how tho
wind was blowing. *
“All my family are at sea, you are aware,
on their way to Savannah; and I know the
dangers of going down tbe coast at this season
of the year too well to be without intense
alarm. My wife and four children, with othor
relatives, are on board the Clyde, and tbeso
propollors roll dreadfully aud are poor sea
boats in rough weather.’’
He appeared intensely anxious ou this sub
ject, recurring to it frequently, and speculating
on tho probable position of the Clyde at this
time. “Should she be lost,’’ he remarked, “it
will be ‘all my pretty chickens ams their dam
at one fell swoop.’ It will be the obliteration
of my name and house.”
As I was leaving, he asked had 1 been able
to do nothing to pad or cushion his shackles ?
He could take no exercise, or but tho leebiest,
aud with great paiu while they were ou.
To this 1 gave an evasive answer, not know
ing what might be the action of General Miles,
und fearing to excite false hopes. No such
half way measures as padding would suffice to
meet the necessities ot bis oase; while their
adoption, or suggestion, might defer the
broader remedy that was needed. On leaving,
he requested me in the morning to note how
the wind blew, and the prospects of the
weather, before paying him my visit. Until
he heard of his family’s arrival in Savannah he
could know no peace.
May 27/A —Called in the morning with the
officer ot the day, Captain Titlow. Found Mr.
Davis in bed, very weak and desponding. He
had not slept. Had been kept awake by the
heavy surging of the wind through the big
trees ou the other side of the moat. Appeared
much relieved when I told him the breeze was
nothing like a storm, though it blew north*
easterly, which was favorable to the ship
containing his family.
He expressed great concern lest his wife
should hear through newspapers of the scene
in his cell, when be was ironed. Would it be
published, did 1 think 1 And on my remain
ing si lent-*;for I knew it had been sent to the
newspapers on tho afternoon of its transpiring—
he interlaced his lingers across his eyes, and
ejaculated: “Oh my poor wife, my poor, poor
girl! How the heart rending narrative will
affiict her !”
He remained silent for some moments as I
sat beside bis bed; and then continued, ex
tending his hand that 1 might feel his pulse .
“I wish she could have been spared this know
ledge. There was no necessity for the act. My
physical condition rendered it obvious that there
could be no idea that fetters were needful to the
security of my imprisonment, It was clear,
therefore, that the object was to offer an indig
nity bothjto myself and the cause I represented
—not the less sacred to me because covered
with the pall of a military disaster. It was for
this reason I resisted as a duty to my faith, to
my countrymen, and to myself. It was for this
reason I courted death from the muskets of the
guard. The officer of the day prevented that
result, and, indeed,”—bowing to Captain Tit
low—“behaved like a man of good feeling.
But, my poor wile! I can see the hideous
announcement with its flaming capitals, and
cannot but anticipate how much her pride and
love will both be shocked. For myself I am
resigned, and now only say, ‘The Lord reprove
i J?? physical inconvenience of these
things 1 still feel (clanking his ankles together
slightly under the bedclothes), but their sense
of humiliation is gone. Patriots in all ages to
whose memories shrines atfc now built, have
suffered as bad or worse indignities.’’ ’
“And so, Doctor,’’ he went on, “you think
all the miserable details of ray ironing have,
been placed before the public ? It is not only
for the hart leelings of my wife and children,
but for the honor of Americans that I regret
it. My efforts to conceal from my wife the
knowledge ot my sutjerings are unavailing; and
it were perhaps better that she should know
tho whole truth, as probably less distressing to
her than what may be the impressions of her
fears. Should I write such a letter to her,
however, she would never get it.”
TAKING OFF HIS IRONS.
Sunday, May 28. —At‘eleven a. in., this
morning was sitting on the porch in front of
my quarters when Captain Frederick Korte,
Third Pennsylvania Artillery, who was officer
of the day, passed towards tbe cell of the
prisoner, followed by the blacksmith. Ihis
told the story, and sent a pleasant professional
thrill of pride through my veins.
Called again at two p. m . with the officer of
the day. Immediately on entering, Mr. Davis
rose from his seat, both hands extended, and
bis eyes filled with tears. He was evidently
about'to say something, but checked himself ;
or was checked by a rush of emotions, and sat
down upon his bed.
I congratulated him o§ the change, observ
ing that my promise of his soon feeling better
was being tulfilled; and he mast now take all
the exercise that was possible for him, for on
this bis futitte health wouid depend. Captain
Korte, too, joineif in my congratulations very
kindly, and spoke with the frank courtesy of a
gentleman and soldier.
Recurring to the subject ot his family, Mr.
Davis asked had 1 not been called upon to
attend Miss Howell, his wife’s sister, who had
been very ill at tbe time of his quitting the
Clyde. Replied that Colqse! James. Chief
Quartermaster, had called at my quarters, and
reques ime to visit a sick lady uc board that
ves.--: ; believe > it w*s tbe lady he referred to,
but could not bj sure of the name. Had men
tioned the matter to Gen. Miles, asking a pass
to visii; but ha objected, saying the orders
were to allow no Communication with the ship.
jir. Davis exclaimed, this was inhuman. The
ladies had cettainly cr.mmitted no crime, aDd
the-e were no longer any prisoners on board
i'll. coip when the request was made, he and
Mr Cray having been tho last removed. The
lady was very seriously ill, and no officer, no
gentleman, n“ man of Christian or even human
feeling, would have so acted.
HIS VIEWS OF HIS CASH.
He then referred to the severity of his treat
ment, supposing himself at present to be held
for trial, and not already undergoing arbitrary
punishment As this conversation was a very
important one, 1 took full note of it almost im
mediately on quitting his cell, and it is now
given in very nearly, if not precisely, his own
“Humanity supposes every man innocent,”
urged Mr. Davis, ‘ until the reverse shall be
proven; and the laws guarantee certain privil
eges to persons held for trial. To hold me
here for trial, under all tbe rigors of a con
demned convict is not warranted by law—is
revolting to the spirit of justice. In the politi
cal history of the world there is no parallel to
my treatment. England, and the despotic
governments of Euiope have beheaded men ac
cused of treason; but even after their conviction
no such efforts as in my case have been made to
degrade them. Apart, however, from my per
sonai treatment, iet us see how this matter
"If the real purpose in the matter be to test
the question of secession by trying certain per
sona connected therewith for treason, from
wbat class or classes should the persons so
selected be drawn ?
“From those who called the State Conven
tions, or from those who, in their respective
conventions, passed tho ordinance of secession?
Or, from tbe authors of the doctrines of State
'rights? Or, from those citizens who being ab
sent from their States, were unconnected with
the event, but on its occurrence returned to
their hotms to share the fortunes of their States
as a duty of primal allegiance? Or from those
officers of the State, who, being absent on Dub
lic service, wove called home by the ordinance,
and returning, joined their fellow-citizens in
State service, aud followed the course due to
that relation ?
“To the last class I belong, who am the ob
ject of greatest rigor. This can only be ex
plained on the supposition that having been
most honored, I, therefore, excite most re
vengeful feelings—for how else can it be ac
counted for ?
“I did not wish lor war, but peace. There

They preached, and professed to believe. We

Mr. Davis then spoke of the restrictions
placed upon his reading, which he supposed
must soon terminate if he was to be placed on
trial. Except for the purpose of petty torture,
there could be no color of reason for withhold
ing from him any books or papers dated piior
to tho war.
Sunday, July 11.—Found prisoner very de.
sponding—tho failure of his sight troub
ling him, and his nights almost without
sleep. His present treatment was killing him
by inches, and he wished shorter work could
be made of his torment. He had hoped long
since for a trial, which should be public, and
therefore with some semblance of fairness; but
hope deterred was making his heart sick. The
odious, malignant and absard insinuation that
he was connected in some manner with the
great crime and folly of Mr. Lincoln’s assassi
nation, was his chief personal motive for so
earnestly desiring an early opportunity of vin
dication. But apart from this, as he was evi
dently made the representative in whose per
son tbe action of the seceding States was to be
argued and decided, he yet more strongly de
sired for this reason to be heard in behalf of the
defeated, but to him still sacred cause. The
defeat he accepted, as a man has to accept all
necessities of accomplished fact; but to vindi
cate the theory and justice of his cause, show
ing by the authority of the Constitution aud
the Fathers of the Country, that his people had
only asserted a right—had committed no
crime; this was the last remaining labor which
life could impose on him as a public duty.—
Mr. Davis then spoke of ex-President Franklin
Pierce in terms of warm admiration, as the
public mau who had studied constitutional
law, and the relation of the States to highest
profit, remarking, that if he were given any
choice of counsel, Mr. Pierce would be one of
those whose advice he would think most reli
able. He also spoke of Mr. Charles Eames, of
Washington, as a walking encyclopedia of
constitutional law, very accurate and ready in
his reference to precedents; adding that he had
seen a report that Messrs. Reverdy Johnson, of
Maryland, and Charles O’Conor, of New York,
had professed their readiness to assume bis de
fence When approached by some of his
friends tor that purpose, for which he felt
grateful, both personally and for his people.
* » « *
“My people,” he added, “attempted what
your peopie denounced as a revolution. My
people sassed; but your people have suffered
a revolution which must prove disastrous to
their liberties unless promptly remedied by
legal decision, in their efforts to resist the
revolution which they charged my peopie with
contemplating. State sovereignty, the corner
stone ot the constitution, has become a name.
There is no longer power, or will, in any State,
or number ot States, that would dare to refuse
compliance with any tinkle of Mr. Seward’s
THB TOBI FEES OF HIS CELL.
Mr. Davis complained that his sle -plessness
was aggravated by the lamp kept burning in
his room all night, so that he could be seen at
all moments by the guard in the cuter cell. If
he happened to dose one feverish moment, the
noise of relieving guard iu the next room
aroused him, and the iamp poured its full
glare into his aching and throbbing eyes.—
There must be a change in this, or he would
go crazy, or blind, or both.
“Doctor,” he said, “had you ever the con
sciousness of being watched ? Os having an
eye fixed on you every moment, intently scru
tinizing your most minute actions, and the va
riations of your countenance and posture ?
The consciousness that the Omniscient Eye
rests upon us, in every situation, is the most
consoling and beaut'tul belief of religion. But
to have a human eye riveted on you in every
moment ot waking, or sleeping. Sitting, walk
ing. or lying down, is a refinement of torture
on anything tbe C'amanehes or Spanish Inqui- (
sition ever dreamed. They, iu their ignorance
of cruel art, oniy struck at the body; and the
nerves have a very limited capac ty 0; pain.
This is a maddening, incessant torture ot the
mind, increasing with every moment it is en«
dared, and shaking the reason by its iccepant
recurrence of miserable pain. Letting a stngie
drop of water fad ou * he head every Sixty sec
onds does not burt at first, but its victim dies
of raving agony, it is alleged, if the infliction
be continued. The torture of being incessant
ly watched is, to the mind, wnat the water
dropping is to the body, but more effective,
as the mind is more susceptible of pain. The
Eye of Omniscience looks upon us with tender
ness and compassion; even if conscious of
guilt, we have the comfort of knowing that
Eye tees also our repentance. But the human
eye forever fixed upon you is the eye of a spy,
or enemy, g.eating in the pain and humiliation
which itself creates. I have lived too long in
the woods to be frightened by an owl, aDd
have seen death too often to dread any form of
pain. But I confess, Doctor, this torture of
Deing watched begins to prey on my reason.—
The lamp burning in my room all n’ght would
seem a torment devised by someone who had
intimate knowledge of my habits, my custom
having been through life never to 3leep except
in total darkneßs.”
lh's conversation, so far as related to its
medical aspect, I deemed it my duty to com
municate that afternoon to Major General
Miles, who could not remove the lamp alto
gether, but directed that it should be screened
at night, so that no direct and giarmg beams
should be thrown into the prisoner’s eyes.
July 20 —Found Mr. Davis in a very critical
state ; his nervous dtbility extreme ; his mind
more despondent than ever heretofore; his appe
titegone; complexion livid, and pulse denotiug
deep prostration of ail the physical energies.
Was much alarmed, and realized with painful
anxiety the responsibilities of my position. If he
were to die in prison, and without trial, sub
jeot to such severities as had been inflicted on
his attenuated frame,' the worid would form
unjust conclusions, but conclusions with enough
color to pass them into history, It seemed to
me, let me frankly confess, due to the honor of
America, and the future gloiy of our struggle
for national existence, that this result should
Mr. Davis asked me could nothing be done to
better bis condition, or scenes him the justice
of a triai before death. The effort of his people
to establish a country had failed, ana they had
no country now but America. It was tor the
honor of America, not less than for his own,
and for justice to his cause, that he pleaded.
Assured Mr. Davis that no effort of care or
such skill as 1 possessed should be wanting for
his benefit. Then commenced conversation ou
various topics, seeking to divert his mind from
the afflictions preying on it.
MEETING WITH MR. C, C, CLAY.
Mr. Davis said when he had last been out on
the ramparts he had met Mr. C. C. Ciay, simi
larly walking under guard. Ciay was looking
wretchedly, and seeing him made Mr. Davis
realize moie acutely his own humiliating po
sition. o c- o *
As he passed Mr. Clay they exchanged a few
words in French, nothing more than the com
pliments of the day and an inquiry for each
other’s health; but it seemed this had alarmed
tbe officer, who did not understand the lan
guage, Mr. Clay not being permitted to pass
him again, but being marched off to another
part ot the ramparts. Clay was naturally del
icate, of an atrabilious type, and his appearance
denoted, that he must be suffering severely.
Replied that I had been attending Mr. Clay,
and saw nothing in his state to occasion alarni.
He had a tendency to asthma, out that was a
long-lived disease. Mr. Davis inquired how
Ciay was fed. Replied that at first he had re
ceived soldiers’ rations, but laterly, his condl
tionsdemanding it, had bean fed from the hos
pital. Mr Davis expressed much sympathy for
his fellow-sufferer, begging me to do whatev
er I professionally could for his relief, and to
hold up his hands. Let me here remark that,
despite a certain exterior cynicism of manner,
no patient has ever crossed my path # wtio, suf
fering so much himself, appealed to teel so
warmly an I tenderly for others. Sickness, as
a general rule, is sadly selfish ; its own pains
aud infirmities occupying too much of its
thoughts. With Mr. Davis, however, the rule
did not work, or rather he was an exception
calling attention to its general truth.
WATCHING His CORRESPONDENCE.
Prisoner complained bitterly of the restric -
tions imposed by General Miles on hiscorrcs
dence with his wife ; certain subjects, and
those perhaps of most interest, being for
bidden to both. The convicts in State pris
ons were allowed this liberty unimpeded, or
only subject to the supervision of the chap
lain, whose supervision had a religious and
kindly character—that of father confossor. His
letters, on the contrary, had to be sent open to
General Miles, and from him, he understood,
similarly open to tho Attorney General. What
unbosomiDg of confidence—mutual griefs, mu
tual hopes, the interchange of teuaerest sym
pathies— wa3 possible, or wouid be delicate
under such a system ? He pictured idle young
staff offic trs here, or yet moro pitiful clerks iu
law departments at Washington, grinning over
any confessions of pain, or terms of endearment
he might he tempted to use; and this thought
embittered the pleasure such correspondence
might otherwise have conferred. The rela
tionship of husband and wife was the inner
vestibule or the tempie—tho holy of holies—fn
poor human life; and who couid expose its se
crets, or lay his heart bare on his sleeve, for
such daws to peck at? Even criminals con
demned to death for heinous crimes, were
allowed not only free correspondence with
their wives, but interviews at which no jailor
stood within earshot. What possible public
danger could there be from allowing such let- .
ters to pasd without scrutiny? Time will set
all these petty tyrannies iu their true light.
He that first pleadeth his own cause seems
justified; but his neighbor cometh and eearch
eth him. If the privilege were ever abused;
if anything he wrote to his wife were published
to the detriment of the government, or tending
to disturb the peace, what easier than to say:
“This privilege has been abused and must
August 14 —Had been absent in Baltimore
on official business some few days, during
which Mr. Davis sent for me. Galled witn
Captain Evans, officer of the day, and explained
my A pustule, somewhat malignant
in character, was forming on the prisoner’s
face, which was much inflamed and swollen.
He reiterated the belief that the casemate was
full of malarial poison, caused by the rising
and falling of the tide in the diten outside (as
previously explained,) and wished the Wash
ington people would take quicker means of
despatching him, if his death without trial was
their object. That it was so he was led to sus
pect, for a trial must develop many things not
pleasant to those in power. In particular it
would place the responsibility for the non
exebanee of prisoners where it belonged.
HIS VIEWS OP POPULAR GOVERNMENT.
August 16.—. Called with Captain Gressin,
Aid-de Camp of General Miles, officer of the
day. Prisoner suffering severely, but in a less
critical state, the erysipelas now showing itself
in his nose and forehead. Found that a car*,
buncle was forming on his left thigh, Mr. Davis
urging this as a proof of a malarial atmosphere
in his cell, reiterating his wish that, if the gov
ernment wanted to be rid of him without trial,
it might take some quicker process.
Prisoner said ho had never held much hope
for himself since entering Fortress Monroe, and
was now losing it for his people. The action
and tone in regard to the Richmond elections,
gave evidence that the policy of “woe to the
conquered"’ would prevail. What a crnel farce
it was to permit an exercise of the elective
franchise, with a proviso that the electors must
cast their ballots for men they despised or
hated ! Either all pretence of continuing rep
resentative government should be abandoned,
or free acceptance given to the men endorsed
by the people To ask men who had fought,
sacrificed, and lost their all for a cause, to
wheel suddenly, and vote into power men
they despised as renegades or cowards,
was the sin of attempting to seethe the kid in
its mother’s milk. Better for the South to
remain disfranchised forever, than crawl back
into office or recognition through such incredi
ble apostacy. Better remain prisoners, than
he citizens on such terms. In no district of
Virginia could what we called a “loyalist,”
muster a corporal’s guard of men with similar
sentiments. Why organize hypocrisy by at
tempting to force into elective positions men
who were not representatives of their alleged
constituents—men who could only excite the
abhorrence or contempt of ninety nine in eve
ry huudred of the people ? Either the South
should be declared so many conquered provin
ces under military rule, or give back the
freedom of the ballot. To offer bribes for
wholesale falsehood, would be found poor pol

I tions that might be imposed cn them. Tbe

by no memories ot the struggle; and now that j

HIS OPINION OF MR. LINCOLN.
Os Mr. Lincoln he then spoke, not in affect
ed terms Ot regard or admiration, but paying a
simple and sincere tribute to bis goodnoes of
character, honesty of purpose, and Christian
desire to be faithful to his duties according to
such light as was given him. Also to his offi
cial purity and freedom from avarice. The
Southern press labored in the early pan of the
war to render Mr. Lincoln abhorred and con
temptible, but such efforts were against his
judgment, and such opposition as his multipli
ed cares and labors would permit. Behind M
Lincoln, during his first term, stood infinitely
more objectionable and 1e33 scrupulous succes
sor (Mr. Hamlin,) and the blow that struck
down the President of the United States wouid
place that successor in power. When Mr. Lin
coln was riinaugurated, the cause of the peo
pie was hopeless, or very nearly „o—the strug
gle only justifiable in continuance by its better
attitude for obtaining terms ; aud fiorn no
ruler the United States could have, might
terms so generous have been expected. Mr
Lincoln was kind of heart,.naturally longing
for the glory and repose of a second term to be
spent in peace. Mr. Johnson, being from the
South, dare not offer such liberal treatment ;
his motives would be impugned. In every em
bittered national struggle, proposals to assas
sinate the rival representatives were common,
emanating from different classes of men with dif
ferent motives; from spies of the euomy, wish
iDg to obtain evidence how such proposals
would be received; from fanatics, religious or
patriotic, believing the act would prove ac
ceptable to Heaven; from lunatics, driven mad
by sufferings ‘connected with the struggle ;
and from boastful and often cowardly despera
does, seeking gold and notoriety by attempt
ing, or promising to attempt, the crime, At
the t’me it occurred, Mr. Lincoln’s death, even
by natural causes, would have been a serious
injury to the prospects of the South ; but the
manner of his taking-off, frenzyrng the North
ern mind, was the last crowning calamity of a

June 4,1866. \
From Newton, Baker county, whence I last
wrote, I came to*a place in this county called
Blowing Cave, which is owned by Mr. Daniel
Barrow, and is one of the finest and best culti
vated plantations I have seen since I com
menced my tour of observation. There are
eighty hands employed in the culture, and
there are close on four hundred acres planted
in cotton, with the due proportion of corn,
peas and sugar cane. All the crop was as
clean as a well tilled gardeD, the fences in good
repair, the stock in good care, the cotton bloom
ing, and the corn commencing to tassel beau
tifully. Unless something unforeseen occurs,
a yield of two hundred and fifty bales, 450 lbs
each, is confidently expected from this place.
The hands are all “family negroes,” that is,
the former slaves of the proprietor, who were
born and reared on-the plantation. They are
now surrounded by their families and friends,
and are living in the houses they have known
from infancy. The men work as diligently as
they ever did, from sunrise to sunset, and
their general conduct is said to be aa blame
less as could be expected from the same num
ber of laborers of any race or color. Their
rations are the same as those I have already
described, and their clothing ample, although
the texture of the fabrics of which the jackets
and pants are made would not compare favor
ably with those employed by the artistes of
The shoes are good, but clearly not of French
extraction, and the head gear of males and fe
males bears no resemblance to the costly mon
strosities which fashionable hatters and milli
ners now impose on a suffering public. They
all seemed cheerful, looked forward with veiy
pleasurable anticipations to the realization of
i their share of the crop, and seemed much .flat
tered when I told them that they had their
ground cleaner than any I had seen. I spent
; some time in the fields while the hands were
at work. I watched the foreman and mana
-1 gers and the laborers in the petformance of
their several duties, and I can assure you those
who have such torrents of tears to shed over
: the crushing daily toil, in a broiling sun of tin
poor African, and the heartless brutality oi
taskmasters, must reserve their briny showers
for some other place than this, or any which I
have visited recently. Northern operatives in
factories are compelled to work harder than
any negroes on tho plantations to which I re
fer; and the exactions of Northern euperia
tondeats of labor, in regard to the continuity
and quality of work, are far more severe than
anv I have seen here.
Now, it must not be supposed that my visit
was expected, and that things were “fixed”
after due rehearsal of all the parts, so as to
make an impression for publication. In the
first place, my visit was without notice of any
kind. Like Paul Pry, I just “dropped iu” end
hoped “f didn’t intrude.” And in the next
place nobody had the remotest idea that I in
tended to write or publish anything connected
with the plantation. It was a visit of the
“family diuner”.order, without any prepara
tion, and I saw men and things as they are
from Monday morning to Saturday night.
For the last fifteen or sixteen days, I have
been in the midst of Africans, where the pop
ulation is frequently a hundred negroes to one
white, and in some cases double and treble
that difference. I have lived and moved
among them, talked to them freely, wherever
I went, and heard them talk to each other
when they did not believe there were any
“white folks round.” Daring my life Lhave
traveled a good deal, and “in strange lands
have made myself no stranger,” and I can as
sure you with perfect sincerity, that I have
never seen a peasant population anywhere, so
generally “well-off” as thefreedmen in this
section of Georgia, who work on the pi ante
tions. They take no heed what they shall e3t,
nor what they shall drink, nor for their bodies
wherewith they shall be clothed. All that is
provided for them by their employer, of good
quality and in abundance. What European
peasant, what Northern laborer can say the
same? Go into the noisome tenement houses
of your large cities, and see the ragged, half
starved men, women and children, and yeu
will fiad the answer.
In case of sickness a compel ent medical man
visits the freedmen and gives h m the best
medicines. It is true, under the free labor
systemhe forfeits wages during sickness. But
he is well tended, carefu ly nursed, and sup
plied with everything needed for his recovery.
Visit the hospitals and see whether Northern
laborers are as well provided in case of sick*
ness or accident. At the epd of the year each
full hand will probably receive a bale of cot
ton, or say $125 for hU year’s labor, in addi
tion to food, clothes and doctor’s bill. Where
does a Northern t or Enropean laborer of tbe
same class do as well or earn as much 1
No honest man. who tells tbe truth, after
personal observation, can say otherwise than
that the mass of the negro population of the
South is mentally the lowest order of the hu
man creation to be found anywhere. Whether
this intellectual iucapacity is or is cot the re
sult of a condition of slavery, I do not pretend
to decide or even to discuss. But the fact is
so. Most negroes have imitative smartness in
a greater or less degree. Some are shrewd,
nearly all are cunning, but with very rare ex
ceptions I have never seen any whose reason
ing faculties were not inferiorjo those of the
least intellectual white man wh<s was compos
mentis. They are the most sensual race in
existence. They have less foresight and thrift
than white children of ten years old. Their
religion consists exclusively in demonstrative
forms. Some of their religious ceremonies re
minded me ot the howling dervishes of Turkey.
The moral restraints —honesty, truth, and the
obligations of man to his feliow—they ackDowl
edge, but rarely observe where they can es
cape detection. Bat they are kind-hearted,
gentle, obedient, dependent and timid—easily
controlled, but as easily imposed upon—ail ig
norant as the mule they drive.
Aside from the desire to “punish rebels,”
make them “reap what they have sown,” and
generally turn this country into a hell on earth,
ate the people I have described above fit for
the suffrage ? Suppose the right to give them
the elective franchise in Georgia to be a3 clear
as the absence of any such power is admitted"
weuld it be wise or politic to place such a
people in the possession of the highest attri
butes of Government ? How will the destruc
tion of the South benefit the North ? Are the
fancied means of retaining political supremacy
to be sought at the sacrifice of every other con
sideration f There are no people who have a
deeper interest in the peace and prosperity of
this section than the manufacturers of the
North. This is their garden and orchard, upon
the luxuriance and steady yield of which their
comfort depends. Let it be made a Hayti or a
Jamaica, and what becomes of its fertility ?
The Sea Islands which have been Jamaicaized
for the last four years ought to have taught a
lesson as to the consequence of African su
premacy. Now. this is the happiest and most ,
prosperous agricultural community I ever saw.
Let the Radicals have their way, and it wiii
be tbe most wretched and most unfortunate.
A negio man, named George Knight, was
murdered in New Haven, Connecticut, on the

Evidently Clair Clyde is a woman ; the last
verse is “confirmated strong as holy writ.”
[From the Cincinnati Enquirer.]
Yes, the words at last are spoken,
I stave told him he was free ;
He may go with those who love him,
It will never trouble me ;
Though, struggled long with weakness,
I am free —yes, free at last;
Yet I sometimes may be haunted
By the visions of the past.
For my heart almost relented
As I listened to his prayer,•
So full of bitter anguish
And seeming wild despair,
He never loved another,
He could never love but me ;
But I only answered coldly,
Remember, you are free.
Then he turned away in sadness
With a fevered, throbbing brow.
And I heard him wildly murmur,
Life is nothing to me now.
I could not forget my sorrow,
Nor my deeply wounded pride ;
I fiad seen him in the twilight
With another by his side.
And his arm was clasped around her
As she whispered low to him ;
\ cs, I saw them from my window,
Through the twilight gray and dim ;
I will never have a lover
If I cannot think him true ;
And if there be any flirting.
Let it be mine to do.
We are, says the Hartford Times, the great
est, wisest and most accomplished people in the
world, but one now and then sees exhibitions of
taste and virtue in the street that fall an arrow’s
head short of perfection. Notwithstanding the
angelic nature of the fair sex, we now and then
notice that they like to march three or four
abreast on the sidewalk, with their expanded
skirts occupying the whole available passway
for pedestrians. As we are young and nimble
we do not mind a step'ofl from the curb into
the gutter, in order to let the radiant platoon
pass without breaking line, but when we see an
aged man, tottering under the infirmities of
years, compelled to do the same thing, we are
inclined to doubt the fairness, not of the ladies’
faces, but of the monopoly of the sidewalk they
so persistently claim.
There is also a peculiar habit of some of the
sterner sex, called men, which is refreshing to
notice, as an exhibition of remarkable fine taste
and decorum. That is, when a lady passes who
is compelled to hold up her skirts to avoid the
filth or wet on the pavement, (?) to stop, turn
round and examine with deliberation, not to say
anxiety, her lower extremities—make a minute
examination of her ankles, and whatever else a
tilting hoop may chance to display. Tilting
hoops, to be sure, often display charms to which
tile most clod-blooded may not always be in'
sensible; and when one sees white hose filled
with the daintiest proportions, and moving with
elastic and graceful step, just a few yards ahead,
one is perhaps not called upon to cover his eyes
with his hands; but to deliberately stop and
turn round upon a passing woman tor the. , pur
pose of inspecting such a phenomenon, is not in
the very best taste.
Tbe Dictator of Peru.
The dictator of Peru has been making a
sheech which does himself credit for its public
spirit and liberality. He says :
The people conferred on mq the dictatorial
power, which I have exercised to suit an extra
ordinary state of affairs, and which will continue
until we learn whether the Spanish vessels have
fled. Everything leads us to presume that they
have left the waters of the Pacific. On the
very day on which this presumption is confirm'
ed I will call an election and convoke Congress,
Meantime it would be imprudent to distract our
attention. We now salute with the purest sen
timents, our honored sister Republics of the al
liance. God grant that the ties which now
unite us may never be severed, and that our
destinies may forever be united under the game
form of government. It remains for me, gen«
tlemen, in the name of Peru, to pay a tribute
of profound gratitude to the self denying and
noble firemen— French, Italian and German—
and in aeneral to all our guests from every part
of the world who have so promptly and cordi
ally assisted us with their persons and resources,
suffering and rejoicing with us. Live here,
worthy and industrious foreigners—if those
can.be called foreigners who have embraced us
with such brotherly love; who have defended
our territory as though it were their own ; who
have cared for our wounded, buried our dead,
and assisted our widows and orphans. Live
here with us, under the shelter of our love arid
gratitude. We shall be brother citizens of
The Losses by Crevasses in Louisiana.—
A late Washington dispatch says the report of
Governor Humphrey, of Miss., concerning the
losses by crevasses in Louisiana, shows the
breaks to be numerous and unusually disas
He recommends appropriations as follows :
Yazoo bottoms, $305,000.. Eight levees on
the Texas bottom, $295,000. Three levees on
the Mississippi delta, *217,000. An aggregate
of $817,000. He says that crops of cotton
growing in the regions above Red River in
1860 would amount to $108,000,000, and the
sugar crop bslow that would be, at present
prices, $50,000,000. The complete repair of
all the levees would require $3,900,000, divi
ded between Arkansas, Louisiana and Missis
sippi. He estimates alluviate lands at three
hundred and Beven thousand square miles, of
which oue hundred and twenty-three thousand
are in tbe sugar regions, of which one-third
might be brought under cultivation, or a mil
lion and a half acres for sugar, and seven mil*
Hon acres to cotton.
The Courteous Minister.— At the beginning
of the civil war in England, Parliament had
forbidden a clergyman to read the liturgy of
service of the church, under the severest pen
alties. Dr. John Backet, rector of a church in
London, continued to read the daily service as
before. On Sunday, a sergeant accompanied
by a soldier, rushed into the church, and with
a ioud voice demanded him to desist, but he,
wi t;j a steady voice and intrepid countenance,
continued. The Boldier pointing a pistol at
his head, threatened him with instant death,
unless he should cease reading. The undaunt
ed minister calmly replied, ‘‘Soldier, I am do
ing my duty, do you yours!” and read on.
The sergeant and soldier abashed, left the

Memphis, Friday, JuDe 15.
A posse of men to-day attempted to bring
info tbe city two men, named S. A. Boyett and
Frank Wingate, arrested for the murder of a
man named Payne, ou Tuesday night. It seems
the guilty parties were informed of byE. N.
Bank, an accomplice, who hunted them out
near this city this morning.
. Oa nearing the city they were met by a Mr.
Henderson, a relative of Payne, who shot all
three, killing Bank and mortally wounding
Bayett. The leader of the posse ordered Hen
derson to desist, and on refusing, the latter was
shot and killed; The man who killed Hender
son was his own uncle.
A telegram from Little Rock, last night,
stated that Dr. Webb, a wealthy citizen of that
place, and his son, were murdered in their beds
by an unknown assassin.
