Long after Maachusetta at t her lv s

W. W. Story, his gifted roo, aaya:
"The Boston newspapers denounced
my father, and sail that a jndge wb
wonld deliver auch a charge ought to
be hurled from the bebrh," and he say
luriner, mat "tbe xottunes or many

tbe African slave trade took oa new
life, and was winked at. A man might
have position in society and be eon-
-idered a gentleman and a Christian,
while his ships were freighted with a
human cargo and his commerce was in
tbe blood and pain of his fellow creat
ures. Msny of the largest fortunes ia
Boeton were the blood money of the
slave trade and came from tbe sale cf
he wretched cargoes of negroe that
survived tbe borrora of their transpor

are our negroes who would bo happy

wonld quit stirring up diaroutent and
telling them lies. If old Mother Jniia
Ward Howe, who is now in her eigbty-
brst yesr snd ought to have an eld wo
man's sense, was to drop down here in
Cartersville, she wonld see some young
bucks wrestling on tbe depot platform
while waiting for freights, and she
would hear tbe merry laogb of a score
of negro dryrren who stood around.
She would bear tbe sound of the col
ored school belL She would paaa and
repass negro women with a l-aiket of
clothns on their besds and a aai'e oa
tbeir faces. She wonld tea negro girl,
clsd in cleaa garments, nursing white

old to be cured. 1 remember when she
published sa abolition paper in 1817.
Bot. pnhaw, it wooldebt do any good,
