A.t this house I feü ia with a Louisianian, wiioremarfced to the bar-lencier, thnt hc 'had I)ecn offcrod severa IKentudty plantalions nt a low priee, inchio'ing the negroes, as tho owncrs were prosiratod." Thinking I might obtain information, I askcfl him some qvicstin9 concerning the fur South. He said land could bo had there for al most Hothing, but siaves were not ruueh depreciated - a man of thirty ycars o!d would se.I for 1000 dollars, lie said ihe planters of the South were desirnus of (;hanging the complexion of the field hands; and propesed the following meiliod : lf nortbërn Tion would consent to marry their nëgfofes the master would emjncipaie ihe wötnön, nnd give a marriago portion equal to wliat the white njan of goorl moral characler might possess.

This opened the wny Tor a Iiule Anti-slavery talk. 'Last Sunday night,' said he, 'i saw a big black man rnáking ihc best oí his way tu Cünada; I might have stöpped him, and had the reward of $200, whieh was offered."' I asked hlm whether it was best to have God's blcssing, wilh the fruits of his Unest industry,or his curse, ivjth $2QÖbioodmoaey. He answered wiili moistencd eye?, "Í wiah al! the sUves were free;1' to which I responder!, 'Amen." Some inci;en(s connected tviih the escapo of th!3 ngero, go to prove that the ';re9 can "lake care of thcmselves," by a , linio ingenuityí when occasion requiros.
