OF THE
SODtnERJT LITERARY MESSENGER
For the Year 1856. July to December.
TWHNTy-THIRtj VOLUME. T
la issuing the Prospectus of the Twenty-Third Vol
limeofthe SOUTHERN LITERARY MESSENGER,
commencing with the July No., the Proprietors rely
solely on the encouraging letters and promises of the
friends of the Messenger to aid them in extending its
circulation, and they beg to assure the public that no
exertions will be remitted on their part to maintaiu
the high character of tbe work, aud to challenge the
patronage of all who valtte sterling literary merit.
For twcnty-Ooe Years, the Messenger has endeavored
to reflect faithfully the Southern mind, while disdaining
all narrow and sectional views, and has been alone
aniorig the monthly periodicals of America, iu defence
ef the PECULIAR INSTITUTIONS OF THE
SOUTHERN STATES.
To this oftice it will be devoted, and will be prompt
to repel assaults Upon the South, whether they come
under the specious garb of fiction, of in the direct form
of anti-slavery pamplilets. At this critical juncture,
while our enemies are employing literature as their
most potent weapons of attack, the Southern people
will surely not withhold their encouragement from a
work whose aim" it shall be to strike blows in their de
fence. The Messenger wilt, as heretofore, present ijs readers
with Reviews, Ilisloricai and Biographical
Sketches. Novels. Tales. Travels C7 IO Tnotnt o
Cnttqur.!) and Papers on lite Army, Navy and
other National Subjects.
With a view to titlsure a larger circulation of the
MESSENGER, trie , Proprietors though they intend
greatly increasing ihasize of the vork, have reduced
the price of Sitpscf iption, which is now only
Thflti bcttafs per. annum. In idiiin.

first, and if need be the next dav likewise
should bfe devoted to a thorough inspection of
me lacuities ot the place, in order that we
mightwork at as little disadvantage as possi
ble. CSnseqnently ve, the mate's boat's crew,
had been ordered to prepare for a gcnerili
cruise. We provided ourselves with a store of
bread and beef; filled t'lis bba't's breaker with
water, spread our sail to the light breeze aiid
pointed the bbat's bow toward the nearest is
land. Landing here, we found nought but a
wilderness of low jungle; 'which was scarcely
penetrable, together with a poor landing We
examined three or four of the inlets, and ha vino
at last fixed ripen ii suitable place where to
commence operations, were about to return on
board, when tlie mate said,
"Trim aft, Tom, there's a good blee2e, fair
coming and going, and we'll take a look at the
mainland." Accordingly, the boat's head was
laid shoreward, and we spread ourselves out at
fuil length upon the thwarts, ending an un.
usual treat of some cigars which our chief officer
had good-naturedly brought withiiiiri.
When within about a inile and a half of the
mainland, we found the water shoaling, being
then not more than three fatlitJms eighteen
feet deep.
"1 saw black skin glisten in the sun just then,"
saia tne boat steerer, who was aft, the mate
having stretched himself upon the bow thwar
t'6 take a nap.
'It was ncthirig bdt a punlng pig," said he
drowsily.
"There it is again, and no puffing pig either

"and over here too," said several voices in suc

"It ain't a spout at all, boys; Jet's pull up
and see what it is!"
We took to our oars, and the boat was soon
darting forward at good fpeed towards th
-place where we had last seen the object of our
curiosity.
"Stern all!" suddenly shouted the mate, as
tlie boat brought up 'all standing' against some
object which we had net been able to see on
account of the murkiness of tlie water, the col
lision nearly throwing us upon our backs into
the bottom of the boat. As ive backed off, an
enormous beast slowly raised his head above
the water, gave a loud snort, and incontinently
dove down again, almost before we could get a
fair look at it.
"What i.s it?" was now the question which
no one could answer.
"Whatever it is," said the mate, whose whal
ing blood was tip, "if it conies ivithin reach of
i:y iron, I'll make fast to it, lads so pull
ahead.-' We were again nnder headway, Keep
ing a bright loo put for the reappearance of
the stranger.
"There they are, a whole school," said the
mate, eagerly pointing in shore, Where the
glistening of white water showed that a number
of the noirdescripts were evidently enjoying
themselves. "Now, boys, pilll h?rd, arid we'i!
soon try their mettle."
"There's something broke water, just ahead,"
sfn'd the boat-steefer.
"I'ull easy, lads I see him there way
enough -there's his back!"
Stern all!" shouted he, as he darted his iron
"FnTl fiead a" tittle ; let's tret oat of this
snarl. Lay the boat around so now, 5!sfrT

of our rictirti; With a roar louder than a
dozen of the wild bulls of Madagascar, thg
now maddened beast made for the boat.

having failed to reach the bbat, was now vainly
essaying to grasp the irbn; which the mate haJ
purposely put into His short neck, so close to
his head that he could not get it in his mouth.
"Stick Qut line till we get clear of the school;
and then we'll pull up on the other side of tills
fellow, and soon settle him with a lance."
This was done, and as we again hauled upon1
the still furious beast, the mate poised his
bright lance for a moment, then sent it deep
into his heart. With a tremendous roar, and
a desperate final struggles of scarcely a min
ute's ddratibn, our piie gave up the ghost;
and after sinking for a moment, rose again to
the surface, lying upon his side, just as docs
the whale when dead.
His companions had left us. and we now
giving three cheers for oiir victory, towed thi
carcass to the hot far distant shore. It was
luckily high tide, and we got the body up to
high water mark, where the speedily receding
waves left it ashore. When we here viewed
the giant, and thought of the singular ability
he had displayed in the Writer, we could not
help ackuowledging to one another that to get

"Stern all back water back water, every

lunges in every direction, making the white
water fly almost equal to a whale.
We could now see the whole shape of the
creature, as in his agony and surprise; he raised
himself high above the surface. We all recog

make the subjoined extract from a letter writ
ten by an bfflcer of the United States Navy to
a friend in this city. The writer is a sou of a
late distinguished senator from one of the New
England States. The letter is written from on
Board the United Siatei ship St. Louis, and
dated October 15, 1856, at "Little Fish Bay;
west coast of Africa:"
"There Is very little variety nnon
this coasl. 'Niggers!' slaves! 'niggers!' is the'
cry. 1 his town ia like most other places upon
the coast, made up of a few people, 'called'
white, and a crowd, a mass of miserable, filthy;
worthlfcss, indolent (niggers) natives. If
Charles Sumner, Jack Hale, or atiy other sen
sible man, who wishes dr' i$ willing to be per
manently cured of his mock philanthropy and
sickly sentimentality iu regard to the universal
negro race, he has only to make a six months
cruise upon the cb'ast of Africa. If that wilt
not eure him, and convince him that his sympa
thy for three and a half millions of the happi
est negroes upon the face of the earth is mis
placed, then I have Only to say he is past hope
and past cure.
"As I live, I do not believe tliefe i3 one ne
gro in one thousand upon the coast of Africa;
who is as well o, morally, physically, or so
cially as the worst abused slave in the United
States. Slavery here is slavery indeed; and of
the most horrible kind. Cruelty practised here
by black' slave-oTrnerg is heart rending to wit
hers. Some chiefs (black) own thousands -
they sell, 'torture, or kill them; at pleasure.
Ninety-nine of every hundred negroes, slaves
or free, even in towns, would gladly exchange
their condition with the tneacfest, most ill treat
ed slave in the tfnitifjL ' It is impossible to pic
ture the miserable condition of the native Af
rican upon his own soil. Civalization, or even5
partial culture, with the mas3 of natives; is art
idea so perfectly absurd that it docs not ad
mit of a thought; With the combined efforts'
of a million competent, honest, industrious, per
seifering philanthropists, with millions of mon
ey yearly expended to' the best possible advan
tage for a million years, w6uld not develop one
hundred native Africans who would be of any
account to the world at large. So much for
'niggers.' Having seen our negroes at home
in ofir southern Statcf, aiid having seen them'
here, I regard the Institution as a benign, nay;
heavenly institution, and our southern brethcr
en deserve the thanks cf the" whole Christian?
w6rld;for having ameliorated, iu such striking
contrast with their bretheren here, thref and tit
half million negroes. . .
Yon may imagine that," although never a
democrat, I pray for the election of Mr Buch
anan; and mainly because npon this negro ques-'
fion the democratic party is right."
