About eight years since, says G. W. Kendall, in
his last letter to the N. O. Picayune, the Sultan of
Turkey, anxious to introduce the culture of cotton
in his dominions, sent an agent to the United
States for some one thoroughly understanding its
cultivation. A gentleman living at or near Colum
bia, South Carolina, was selected, accepted the lib

all brought up on his plantation" and practically
acquainted with the growth of Cotton. One of
these men, a trusty fellow, was despatched ahead
visited Eng.and to make purchases, or on some ne
cessary errand, performed his trust faithfully, al
though he well knew that on English soil he was
free, and met his master in due time at Constanti
nople, after thousands of miles of travel with no one
to look out for him. After remaining in Turkey
some two or three years, and setting a cotton j
plantation in operation, (hi-- ow n negro slaves learn- J
ing'the Turks the practical culture -of the plant.) j
the gentleman set out on his, return to the States j
with all his people. On board an English steamer I
between Smyrna and Malta, on which he took pas- j
sage, it soon became noised that an American, with j
a lot of slaves, was among the passengers, and j
great was the curiosity, among the English in par- 1
ticular,to see and talk with the negroes. The!
master of the latter allowed free converse per- j
mitted the passengers to make any offers to his j
slaves-r-to Use any means thev saw nt, snort ot
actual force, to induce any one of them to acci-pt
proffered freedom yet all failed: thev were anx
ious, the slaves were, to go back to old tarclma,
preferring bondage there to the freedom among
the poorer classes they had seen during-their
European travels. Put the best of the story is to
. On reaching Malta, the steamer remained over
night, when, to breathe the fresh land air, or to
see the town, all the passengers, including the
American and his "white and colored people, went
ashore and remained until morning. On g-ing
again on board, at the hour -appointed -for sailing,
it was ascertained that, by an accident in running
back to the hotel for a basket, or some article for
gotten in the haste 'of leaving, the colored female
slave had missed the party, had lost her way, or
nt all events was not forthcoming when the steam
er's 'bell rang to cast off. The American asked the
captain to remain a .few moments, and with suc
ooss lint still the rn'rl did not make her appear-

ance. The captain was importuned to remain Vet ;
a tew moments longer, anu utu ueii gumg un

Great was the exultation among the English
passengers w hen it was ascertained that one of the
unfortunate slaves Jiad been left behind, nor would
they believe thatjier non-appearance was the re
sult of accident. She had put her foot upon
British soil, had tasted the sweets of British free
dom, and was not going back to American slavery
and servitude. They little knew the feelings then
agitating the poor girl, but in their rejoicing offer

the family were attached to the girl, and all knew
how bitter must be her anguish on finding herself
thus Separated from those to whom she had ever
been warmly attached, and thrown among strang
ers, who would take no thought of her welfare.
The steamer put in at her usual ports, landed or
took on board her usual passengers, and at the ac
custohied day approached Marseilles. So confident
was the American that the first person to be seen
on landing would be the girl, as the direct steam
er, must have been in for a tiay or two, that he

Mr. .Slocum was not educated in a University,

littlene&s rather than a comprehensive grasp of
great subjects. Mr, Slocum can however, master
a printed paragraph by dint of spelling the hard
words in a deliberate manner, and he manages to
get a few glimpses of men and things from his lit

A tew evenings ago,1 iaiuer oiocum was reacting

' What was it about; Mr. Slocum ?'

Mr. Slocum began to read.

When his situation was discovered, he had revolved

Mr. Slocum looked puzzled. , He scratched his

A Dutchman was relating his marvelous escape
from drowning, when thirteen of his companions
were lost by the upsetting of a boat, and he alone
was saved. 44 And how did you escape their fate?"

mpintwr of the family, as to a Dlank which would
save her from a repetition of such terrible suffer

girl, on finding herself left by her master and her
master's family, lushed like a mad person about
the streets of Malta, calling frantically upon every
one to help her to find her 44 missis and de -childon."

family with deserting her intentionally, and in the
hopelessness of her despair went bitter tears as she
thought that she should never see her friends again.

of a wife, all other bereavements are trifles. The
wife, she ho fills so large a space in the domestic
heaven she who is so busied, so unwearied in la
boring for the precious souls around her bitter,
bitter is the tear that falls on her cold clay. You
stand beside her coffin and think of the past It
seems an amber-colored pathway, where the sun
shone upon beautiful flowers, or the star, glittering
overhead. Fain would the soul linger there. o
thorns are remembered above that sweet clay, save
those Your hand may have unwillingly plated.
